Browsing the CDs in the 'World Music' section of my local independent music store I came across the intriguing "Albanian Wedding: Brass Explosion" by a band called Fanfara Tirana. So delighted was I with the cover picture of a pompom-ed slipper and the back cover shot of the band in their finery that I bought the CD immediately. Reading the cover notes I discovered that the band is something of a novelty because, while brass instruments are not unknown in traditional Albanian music, there has never been the tradition of brass bands such as this.

Fanfara Tirana are relative newbies on the music scene, at least when it comes to recorded work. Their first album "Albanian Wedding" was released in 2007.

Catchy melodies, smooth, listenable voice, vocals and harmonies; great familiar and original music,
Mixed genres including rock and roll, slow ballads. May sound too much like other familiar artists
|Angel Witch - Angel Witch|
Classic heavy metal.
Endless, tedious comparisons to other bands are inevitable.

|Legacy: The Best Of Mansun - Mansun|
Some great indie tracks
Some odd choices
|I Walk Among You - Iced Earth|
The new song is pretty good, if nothing we haven't heard before.
Pointless overdubs of average songs with a copycat singer.
|Into The Oriental - Kadenzza|
Creative and well-balanced symphonic black metal.
Electronic drums are disappointing, and longer songs don't hold together as well.
|Orgasmatron - Motorhead|
Great lyrics, fantastic tracks
Probably best for newbies to start with a Best-Of as it won't appeal to everyone
|Hazards of Love - Decemberists|
The Odd Redeeming track, which saves it from being a 1 star album
