A Story Through Music – Shattered

Haven’t posted anything in a while, so I thought, I’d rather post some music I made sometime back.

Its a slow, sad piece straight from the heart… a soundtrack in rough format. Will be part of the new album Life Keys, to be released near the year-end.

Title: Shattered

Album: Life Keys

Artist: RokZRooM

Genre: Soundtrack

Let me know how you feel, what ideas come to you as you listen! 🙂 If you like the idea of sharing new music like this, I’ll put more of such work in progress / demos here. 😀

Cheers!

Keep Rockin’!

One Step

Long time back I saw a song on VH1, titled “The Importance of Being Idle”. Not that I fell in love with the song, but the message was excellent. When you’ve got nothing to do, whatever your do would most probably be the reflection of your inner desire, or as Steve Jobs had put it, “…somehow your heart already knows what you want!”

Sorry for not being around much, but you may agree how difficult it is in such times… a blank and bleak state of conscience, seeking desparetely for a ray of hope. You may just not know which step it is that can take you to the destination you really desire. You may even be unaware of that desire itself.

What to do?

Well, Enigma has already sang it, in the song Goodbye Milky Way – “Follow your heart, believe in faith..”;  I strongly recommend listening to this song, for a better, bigger vision that it helps listener visualize… dream big…here’s a the lyrics:

“Goodbye Milky Way”

Shall I go, shall I stay
107 light years away
many times, so many doubts
But no reason to talk about

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you, children of the sun
But it’s time to go away
Goodbye milky way

For a better world without hate
Follow your heart, believe in fate
Only visions and the mind
Will guide you to the light

Mission is over mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
But it’s time to go away
Goodbye milky way

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
I go home until someday
I say goodbye, goodbye milky way

In 5 bilions years the Andromeda galaxy will collide with our milky way
A new gigantic Cosmic world will be born

So, I thought lets not think for a while, and just do… act.  🙂

And I spent some 17000 Rs. to buy a midi controller.. thinking may be its the next step. Got it yesterday! And started believing in my dream again!

When you think of what’s to gain, or to loose. When you weigh the bet, its seems its not easy. Its not meant to be. But when you think again, nothing else really matters. Everything else is secondary!

Toughest thing about any change that one desires, is to act upon it. But all it takes is a little courage, and the first few steps – One step at a time. And,to learn THIS, you got to be sitting idle for more than a while. 😉

Let’s see where does it take me.

Review: 21st Century Breakdown by Green Day

If you’ve known me for long enough, you might know that I get deeply engrossed by and involved with the music I listen, I adapt, I love, and then… I live through.

There hasn’t been good new releases (for my taste) for quite some time in the international rock spectrum recently! But this one captured me, completely.

After the much acclaimed American Idiot, Green Day comes with another wonderful album with their own signature elements! If truth must be told, I never listened much of rock till I came across Metallica (well, thats too solid a taste for all to start with, but I loved their evergreen titles anyway! And yes, I can proudly say, I love rock!!!) Coming back to the Green Day’s release, 21st Century Breakdown, there’s much to offer to the listener in the two CD bundle with 18 solid tracks.

One of my close friends once had a discussion with me (when I was much into Hip-Hop and Rap and blues – all at once though for different reasons and specialties) when I argued whether Rock is the evergreen genre or not! I was ignoramus then!?

Especially after coming across some of the best music of the rock scene’s history, my perception changed a bit, giving a a bit preferential treatment and a special place for Rock in my heart.

Coming back to Green Day, I recall the first song I heard from them was Boulevard of Broken Dreams. Still, its one of my all time favorites! They’ve always proved the special place they deserve in the Rock scene.

21st Century Breakdown comes with 3 portions termed as acts. This gives a unique identity by segregating the tracks in a special theme, under the act names Heroes and Cons, Charlatans and Saints, Horseshoes and Handgranades. As always, you’ll fall in love the way they tell you the story.  Its a must-own album for rock fans, with a touch of ballads, a concern for the world overflowing in most of their songs, and lyrics filled with awesomely apt vocab.

Some of the must listen songs, which I’ve been constantly listening and humming for past couple of weeks, are Last Night On Earth, Viva La Gloria, Viva La Gloria (Little Girl), Know Your Enemy, 21 Guns, Restless Heart Syndrome… Ahh, well, each of them is special; and most of it will soothe your Rock appetite for sure. But these all are my (current) favs from this album!

Not saying I am capable of, but if I had to rate this album, it would get a score of something around 84/100.

P.S. May be I’ll post more posts, as I usually do, about the lyrics of each songs I love most and how they make me feel – though on my personal official blog and website. I feel it wouldn’t be fair to fill this place with a hoards of posts every week. Instead, 1-2 of the best of everyone’s post will keep the variety alive and give everyone a unique chance, a special place, and keep the quality top notch!
