Review|Imagine (2008)

Category: Music
Genre: Dance & DJ
Artist: Armin van Buuren

Current World's No. 1 DJ Armin van Buuren is back with another artist album. I've been listening to it and here are my thoughts.

The 1st track caught me off guard for a bit. I was really trying to figure out what was happening with the track with the piano and guitar solos. Then it finally goes into what we want... TRANCE! Yes, yes, and YES this album is just that straight up trance. Going Wrong (lead single) is my current fave it has that anthem feel [sort of like Love You More but a bit faster]. AvB went with various female talent for his other vocal trance tracks but was able to maintain the album's flow. It wasn't everywhere all at once and actually had a nice flow to it. The vocals and production were top notch. I'm really liking Hold On To Me (ft. Audrey Gallagher) also In and Out of Love (ft. Sharon den Adel) [back to back gems!], Fine Without You (ft Jennifer Rene) is one of the tracks I liked as well.

He's been busy touring and with his weekly radio show but still manages to put out a nice trance album. We should be seeing these tracks in DJ sets, compilations, and hopefully remixes very very very soon.

A word from the Cobra Emperor:

Get this album NOW. This, I command!

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
