We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.
Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.
Stay tuned !

With their mix of indie electronica, synthpop and subtle dancefloor tendencies, Hot Chip has become quite an institution among those who know. Not only does the band do good songs they also have a lyrical and musical sense of humor which, if it doesn’t dominate their art, is still very much welcome. With four full-lengths and a handful of EPs, Hot Chip’s talent is not to be demonstrated anymore. This compilation, a 77 minutes exploration of the band’s discography up to this year’s One Last Stand, is only meant to be an introduction to a band that has a lot to offer those of you looking for clever/playful indie “poptronica”.

For this final installment of my seasonal series, I wanted something that, beyond the simple title of the songs, evoked the lightness and happiness of springtime. This is the new season, when nature is reborn, girls go in shorter skirts and we all feel a little younger, people!
Indeed, the very sound of this compilation aims towards the easy-listening end of the musical spectrum with genres ranging from plain kitsch orchestral, jazz, folk, country, indie rock, pop, etc. Of course, I added a little gravity to the mix which, otherwise, would have felt too “honeyed” but, you’ve got it, I wanted a crowd pleaser not a tortured selection.
Welcome to springtime, might those songs bring a little sunshine and warmth to your heart.
(This one is actually not featured on the compilation by this artist but I found two cover versions that open and close the selection and I thought it might be a good idea to offer you the original version as well.)

We’re continuing our series of reworked compilations with the new version of what once was named “Fuel My Fire” at Baistophe. Since we posted this first selection, about two years ago, the Mets have released Death Magnetic helping them to re-establish the band as a quality act after the huge disappointment St. Anger was. Like with Queensrÿche, this new selection benefits from our better skills with the artworks but it also offers a broader view of Metallica’s career. In addition to the 9 studio albums, we chose tracks from their cover collection (Garage Inc.), their two live albums (Live Shit: Binge & Purge and S&M) as well as the live cuts from the Some Kind of Monster EP.
With 37 songs and almost 4 hours of music, Death Inc. offers a wide panorama of the biggest metal band in the world and, though we still thing some tracks are missing, it was a prime concern of ours to keep it varied and entertaining from start to finish while covering just about every aspect of the band’s career with the notable exception of St. Anger of which no song appear here for obvious reasons.
We sincerely hope you’ll enjoy the ride.
My METALLICA Top Three
1 – Master of Puppets (1986)
2 – Ride the Lightning (1984)

My METALLICA Bottom Three
1 – St. Anger (2003)
2 – St. Anger (2003)
3 – St. Anger (2003)
(Yes, it’s that bad!)

Back when we started this little adventure called “Baistophe”, when we were eager and youthful but didn’t know too well our chops and tricks, I did a Queensrÿche compilation I called “Band in a Box”. This wasn’t a bad compilation as it displayed most of the Q’s own favorites, it had a decent artwork and all… Yet, something itched me since. Was it the chronological order I went with, the fact that Queensrÿche has since released another album (a good one that is), the simple revelation that some of my choices weren’t as essential as I thought they were? Well, I can’t tell but one thing was certain, someday I’d have to re-do the work and now that the links are dead is as good a time as any.
So, here it is, “Welcome to the Real World”, the revamped, repacked, rethought, resurrected double Cd compilation from one of the world’s finest, cleverest metal bands. A 158 minutes long feast for those who love their metal to be melodic, a little progressive, thoughtful and , well, touched by the grace of the metal gods. With songs from their entire studio catalog (from the 1983’s Ep “Queen of the Reich” to 2009’s “American Soldier”), it is, in my humble opinion a perfect introduction to this unique music group and/or, for those already familiar with Tate & Co, a set filled with what the band did best in its 27 (!) years in the business. I hope you’ll like it.
Fates Warning, Pink Floyd, Rush, Savatage
Warning: track 7 on Cd two has not been tagged well, it is, in fact Scarborough Fair, not a second version of Sign of the Times. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Coming from Glasgow and named after a French children book and tv series of the 60s, Belle and Sebastian have crafted their delicate (retro) pop sound through the years establishing a cult following but failing to win mainstream audiences. With 7 studio albums, a lot of EPs, some live recordings and a double b-side compilation, the band proved to be both productive and consistent. So much that it hasn’t been an easy task to select the 36 tracks displayed here. Of course, most of the tracks come from the band’s studio albums but, considering the quality of the material released on their various EPs, I had to include some excerpts from it.
And, voilà, a 2 CDs filled with a little under 2 and a half hour of retro-indie pop at its best. Enjoy!
The Smiths, Of Montreal, Love, The Magnetic Fields
