CLEARLY A LUCID DIAMOND

bernie_becker.JPGMOUNTLAKE TERRACE, WASHINGTON – MAY 2009: Few of music’s legendary performers can claim as enduring a career as Neil Diamond. His earliest recordings for Columbia Records date back to 1963, and he produced such a trove of now-classic albums in the 1970s and 1980s that any less driven artist would have shifted contentedly and deservedly into retirement two decades ago. But rather than sip martinis in obscurity, Diamond continued to draw millions of fans to his hugely successful tours throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. A testament to his enduring spark, 2008′s release “Home Before Dark” hit both the Billboard Hot 200 and the U.K. album chart at number one, and his 2008 tour was more successful than any he had launched in the previous forty years. more

SENNHEISER e 935s A SMASH WITH TINTED WINDOWS

tinted_windows.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – MAY 2009: Way back in 1997, a circus rolled through town, and a seer charged $4.00 for accurate predictions of the future. You felt ripped off when she told you that twelve years hence, members of four disparate bands, Cheap Trick, Hanson, Smashing Pumpkins, and Fountains of Wayne, would form a “super-group” to deliver unambiguous power-pop in a genre that was in danger of losing its way. It was preposterous. What would those bands ever have to do with each other? As you left the tent in a huff, she repeated the words, “Tinted Windows,” over and over again in a quivering voice, which you chalked up to the ravings of a madwoman. more

DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS CLARIFY THE CINEMA EXPERIENCE

msi_imax.JPGCHICAGO, ILLINOIS – MAY 2009: Having entertained and educated over 175 million visitors since opening in 1933 on the former site of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition, Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) has long stood at the vanguard of museum programming. Forever reinventing itself, the museum built an OMNIMAX(r) theater – the city’s only five-story, domed IMAX venue – in 1986. While it has continued to draw capacity crowds in recent years, the theater was due for a overhaul, both because equipment was failing and because its technical specs were falling behind the times. Today, a fresh set of Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers have revitalized the sound system with impact and truthfulness that were simply unimaginable even ten years ago. more
