Glenn Lee- Pass Me Not, Oh Gentle Savior
I firmly believe that Robert Randolph is going to be a star. I recently spoke to Randolph; my profile is here. This compilation of sacred steel artists was recorded when Randolph was still a kid. I didn't ask him about it, but I suspect he spent some time listening to the project. If so, he was likely impressed by Glenn Lee, who's just a few years older than Randolph. His country-flavored reading of this gospel favorite is gorgeous.
I'm infatuated with the sound and feel of Dizzee Rascal's "Sirens". It's the most exciting new song I've heard this year.
Although I have no problem with Bon Jovi, I was not pleased when the hit "Wanted Dead Or Alive" became an unwelcome guest in my noggin after this week's humdrum American Idol episodes. I chased it away with Thin Lizzy's superior "Cowboy Song".
