Sparks - Kimono My House 1974 Flac & mp3
Arguably one of Sparks' best albums, 1974's Kimono My House finds the brothers Mael (Ron wrote most the songs and played keyboards, while Russell was the singing frontman) ingeniously playing their guitar- and keyboard-heavy pop mix on 12 consistently fine tracks. Adding a touch of bubblegum, and even some of Zappa's own song-centric experimentalism to the menu, the Maels spruce up a sleazy Sunset Strip with a bevy of Broadway-worthy performances here: as the band expertly revs up the glam rock-meets-Andrew Lloyd Webber backdrops, Russell sends things into space with his operatic vocals and ever-clever lyrics.
And besides two of their breakthrough hits (the English chart-toppers "This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us" and "Amateur Hour"), the album features one of their often-overlooked stunners, "Here in Heaven." Essential.(allmusic)
I'll never will forget that moment as i heard the first time the jingle e piano and the dramatic vocals over the melody line...''Zoo time..is 'she and you time'...'' and than ''Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers''. It kicked me for around three minutes to a place who believers call heaven. I know everything of that little moment after nearly 45 years. So great. A song for the eternity. They never did a song like that again. They have done a lot of great pop music but i think this is their best album they ever made. This is real pop opera. The album is extraordinary in many kind of ways. Hope you like it.
