skylyro’s Top 5 Albums of 2011

dEUS, Keep You Close

Hey guys, welcome back to another Top 5! This time I thought of my favorite albums of the past year and tried to come up with my Top 5 Albums of 2011. I have to admit that my musical spectrum is quite restricted in these last years, but still, I believe there where a few interesting publications last year, as well. I have picked 5, but feel free to propose your favorite albums in 2011!

1. Keep You Close – dEUS: some people prefer the older albums, some the newer ones, and I more or less like them all! dEUS is an amazing band, always innovative, always great!!! To me, dEUS are probably producing Continental Europe’s best music! Continue reading “skylyro’s Top 5 Albums of 2011”

Cheers folks, it’s been quite a while since my last post, and I’m really happy to be here, writing this year’s first post – apart from last year’s review… At first, I had a different topic on my mind, but as I stumbled upon some video, I just had to make these my next blog post. Obviously, I knew that Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam as a whole had appeared on stage with many artists throughout the years, and some of these performances I had already seen and heard before, but I was so surprised by the many of them I found! Eddie Vedder, whom I probably consider my favorite singer, duetting with some of the most extraordinary artists and musicians of past and present… and this is skylyro’s Top 5 Eddie Vedder Duets: Continue reading “skylyro’s Top 5 Eddie Vedder Duets”

skylyro’s Top 10 Jogging Albums

radiohead - in rainbowsHey there! This week I’d like to share with you my favorite albums when it comes to jogging.  In order to keep in shape, many of us go jogging in their spare time, or on the weekend, and most of us have at least tried once in their lifetime. Well, let’s be frank, the first thought most of us have is that running, pure running, not chasing a ball or something, simple running, is in fact a bit boring! That is why we all tend to carry our mp3 player, iPod, iPhone, Blackberry, or whatever modern technology has to offer, on our conquest of the local park.
