Annihilation & Seduction / Various
'Annihilation & Seduction' is a compilation for the age of intelligent listeners who are sick and tired of being treated like morons who don't have better options than to buy junk CDs -- coasters -- full of noise tracks, especially with compilations that too often just grab any damn song available and jumble all the tracks together. Sure, you can download music -- everybody does it -- and maybe with a little work you'll get 10 songs out of a hundred that are new and exciting. But you can't get a quality package of back-to-back killer tracks that take you through a range of emotions as vividly and compellingly as a cinematic epic. I know; I've tried it many times. There's always the hope, though, that you can find a CD (better yet, a double-disc set like this one) that gives you more than you expect, all that you want. BLC Productions recognizes that it ain't about the money -- it's about the music. Yes, we could have released a compilation of only the best-known artists. But this compilation is about bringing you the best sounds, period, regardless of who's making the music. Better yet, almost every dime of the profit from the compilation will go right back to the musician who's trying to get buy, keep the car running, keep the instruments ready to punch out the next set. This compilation is by the artists and for the artists, but most of all -- it's for you, the listener. Whether we're annihilated or seduced, we're all in this together.
