The album also conveys a humanistic warmth because Cash, then still overcoming his own addictions, was trying to understand the circumstances of every prisoner in that room and talk to him directly. One of the most electric live albums in any genre, At Folsom Prison demonstrates how country music might speak for a population that has been denied a voice. Best believe that two decades before Nicki Minaj was born, the Shangri-Las were the baddest bitches in Queens. Formed by two sets of sisters, they were the girl group known for being hard-as-nails in real life and in their aching, baroque pop songs. Their best-known song, Leader of the Pack, is a candy-shop dy about a boyfriend who dies in a motorcycle accident. Give Him a Great Big Kiss was covered a decade later by the glam-punk maniacs the New York Dolls.
Golden Melody Awards – Best Female Mandarin Artist 2003 Best Mandarin Album of The Year 2008 L!VE i. .KAREN MOK Best Female Mandarin Artist 2011 Precious. MTV Asia Awards – Inspiration Award 2008.

For me the best album this year was Smells like teen spirit by Nirvana. Karen Gwyer is one of techno’s best live DJs, but Rembo is her magnum opus as a producer. The Michigan-born, London-based hardware enthusiast built her latest LP from a scaffolding of kicks, drones and claps that are as utilitarian as they are freeing. I was excited to occupy the role of a pop songwriter or producer, rather than being the person onstage myself, Halo told the the New York Times. With this in mind, Dust, which also features percussion from experimental drummer Eli Keszler, is as much about embracing the connecting power of an orchestra as it is about furthering Halo’s role as an idiosyncratic artist working on the weird fringes of electronic music.
The notion of finding strength in being vulnerable is not a new one, especially not to Caroline Spence. Spades and Roses, the Nashville-based songwriter’s second record, takes that idea and expands it, tapping into an ancient tradition of finding strength grounded in femininity and toughening up.
The best albums of the year included Adele turning personal turmoil into a blockbuster for the ages on 21, Jay-Z and Kanye reveling in luxury rap on Watch the Throne and Lady Gaga channeling Springsteen on Born This Way.

While Karen has frequently been identified as a contralto because of her distinctive low sound, her fairly light natural tone would exclude her from this classification. Both myself and galaxyseal really were uncertain on this B5, but seeing that it wasn't counted in the OP (and numerous other factors), I decided to omit it on the basis of uncertainty and the unlikelihood that it's Karen.
The Best Album Covers of 2014 (So Far). 48. St. Vincent, Strange Mercy. Antony and the Johnsons actually dedicated their 2009 album The Crying Light to multiple works of art. The cover features Kazuo Ohno, a leading butoh dancer, who passed away in 2010. Antony Hegarty, the band's frontman, actually stumbled upon the black and white photograph, shot by Naoya Ikegami, in the streets of France back in 1987. It was actually the hand of the band's frontwoman Karen O in the photograph, and it's not hard to grasp a sense of her personality from just that: the intensity of the pose juxtaposed with the glam of the painted nails and the oddity of the egg. Vintage Fisher and classic YYYs.
These album covers are so gorgeous and iconic that you'll want to hang them on your wall. Album artwork has become a lost art. While the convenience of streaming music is something that many of us can't live without, there's something to be said about a self contained physical album that can be enjoyed from beginning to end. The cover's artwork sets the mood before the first track even begins. For some reason, front woman Karen O squeezing an egg until it bursts out of its shell while captured on a high speed camera is as mesmerizing as it is impactful. 20. Funkadelic - Maggot Brain.
