Stars Dance

Selena Gomez has decided to shed "The Scene" and go solo for Stars Dance, and this much-anticipated summer album is packed with EDM (Electronic Dance Music) pop tunes from start to finish. It's been a big year for Selena, and no longer content to just be a Wizard of Waverly Place, she's made the leap to grown-up pop stardom without losing her original Disney fans.

Selena's sound is distincly different from many pop stars releasing records this summer. The bollywood-inspired "Come & Get It" is the album's first single, and is probably one of the record's strongest tunes, but the entire set of 11 songs could get your toes tapping, and would feel right at home on any party playlist. Selena clearly worked with producers to come up with a slick, layered, dancing sound - the only drawback is that we don't get to hear much of Selena's natural vocal talent or emotion (there are a few sly hints and jabs at her ex, Justin, but other than that Selena doesn't get too personal on this one.) Borrowing sounds from around the world, "Like a Champion" has some interesting reggae overtones, and the very first track is appropriately called "Birthday," (it was Selena's 21st birthday this week.)

Her first solo album is party song after party song, with no rest, and while it isn't our fave Selena album, it's definitely worth a listen.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness.

Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
