First Impressions: A Killah Cover & Song From Mark Ronson's 'Collection'

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

This ended up in my in-box a couple of days back and since I'm a bag of lazy bones a lot of blogs have already been on the buzz about producer and DJ Mark Ronson's upcoming collaborative Record Collection and his current leak, the Ghostface Killah assisted, "Lose It (In The End)". So better late than never, right? Plus to kill two blog posts with one keystroke, I wanted to have an excuse to talk about the album cover for Record Collection, because well, just look at it. It's pretty awesome and a great homage to vinyl records. Was particularly nerdy in focusing in on at the homage to Duran Duran's Patrick Nagel drawn Rio cover. But back to the subject at hand...

The jerky funky sprawl of "Lost It (In The End)" is a much better musical assessment than the Q-Tip collaboration of "Bang Bang Bang" and gives me a sense that Ronson isn't terribly bad at singing (that has been the current criticism of this upcoming project) and that Record Collection is shaping up to sound just as good as 2007's Version, an album I was pretty entertained with particularly for Amy Winehouse and Daniel Merriweather. With some big names on board (D'Angelo, Boy George and Duran Duran's Simon LeBon are vocal guests as well), Record Collection is shaping up rather nicely.
