Jay-J Reflections

I am a geek, and if that is a surprise to any of my loyal readers out there, then you really don’t know me at all. Tonight I was watching The Screen Savers on TechTV and they had a guy on talking about mixing music. He was describing the EQ setup and how to make all instruments sound the way they should. He made sense. I did a little digging on the Internet and found that he wasn’t just making it up, there’s a whole science devoted to it. I went to the web site for the studios that he started and found a CD with his name on it. Jay-J. He has more than one, but I picked up Reflections, the most recent. It’s really good. More modern elevator music, but it’s not quite like the Techno/Rave that Leanne had recommended to me. So how does it sound? It sounds really good on my Klipsch THX computer speakers, and I bet it would sound even better on my main system. This is music I will listen to while I am deep in thought working on a problem. This is dance music and I would like to go to a club where Jay-J is spinning records. I bet it would be a lot of fun. I can smell the Red Bull and Vodka in my hand right now. So how much does it cost? I was unlucky and did not find it on at all, and Moulton Studios web site has it listed for $17.99. I found it at Tower Records for a whopping $18.99. Again, this is the most I have ever paid for a CD, and no CD will ever be worth that much money, but this actually does come close. If you are into house music, check it out. It sounds great.
