Underrated!


Hey it's been awhile since the blogosphere has had a good 'ol fashioned blogfest. I miss them. They're such a great way to have fun and connect with other bloggers.

Click on the picture above to get to Alex J. Cavanaugh's blog--the HQ for all things underrated. Er, wait... that sounded off. LOL But you know what I mean. *wink wink*

What came to mind for me is an album I stumbled onto while listening to one of my Pandora stations a couple of years ago. The song was called Memories and I immediately bought the album. I'm pretty hard to impress when it comes to music. I'm not a music snob by any means, but it's rare that new music hooks me enough to buy an album. This one did ...


                                                    The Silent Force bWithin Temptation

They were way underrated when I first heard them. Nobody knew the album or the band. They're a little bit like Evanescence. I wrote my entire YA sci-fi novel The Desiree to this album. It was so perfect.

I think Within Temptation may have more of a following now, but still way underrated. My favorite songs on the album are Angels, Memories, and Somewhere. They have more albums out now too.

Oh and here's a book that's underrated.... actually an entire box set!


I'm so excited to be a part of this box set and it's only .99 for all 8 titles! We are having a Facebook release party tonight (Monday) to celebrate. I hope you'll join us. 7pm-11pm eastern. Just stop by anytime you can and say hello. We'll have prizes and fun!

Within Temptation! You rock, PK. Excellent band.
All things underrated. That made me chuckle.
Thanks for participating in my blogfest.

I've never heard of The Silent Force, but I liked the music, and can see how it'd be good book-writing soundtrack. And .99 cents for eight books is pretty awesome! =)

Jay Noel said...

That is some awesome music. Wow. Never heard their stuff until just now. Thanks for sharing.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Awesome music that I never heard of. Thanks for sharing it. And glad the campaign is going well.

Jackie said...

I've never heard of this music, but I'll be checking it out! Love the sound!

Annalisa Crawford said...

I've just scrolled through the album and listened at random points - they sound pretty cool. I'll be making a note, thanks!

I haven't heard of Within Temptation either, though I'm really out of the loop regarding just about all current music, or what passes for music.

Margo Kelly said...

Hadn't heard of them. Thanks for the recommendation.

Miranda Hardy said...

Along with many others, I've never heard of them. Good find.

Chrys Fey said...

OMG!!! Within Temptation is my favorite band of all time (slightly behind Thirty Seconds to Mars)!!! I stumbled onto them back in 2005. The first song of theirs I heard was "Jillian" and I was blown away. "Silent Force" is definitely their best album. I was going to share this for my Underrated pick, but then changed my mind. (I once shared their song "Somewhere" on my blog.) I'm so happy that you're a fan, too! :D

S. L. Hennessy said...

I'll have to add them to my Pandora. Sounds great!

Jeremy Hawkins said...

Never heard of that group or album but I could play that in the background while I write.

William Kendall said...

I haven't heard of the group either, but I like the sound of it.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Wow! That's awesome writing music!

Beth said...

Lilly and Dash's Book of Dares never got the attention it deserves.

Jennifer Ruth Jackson said...

I'd want an e-reader before getting the box set, but I do want!
I love Within Temptation! The lead used to be part of Nightwish.

dolorah said...

I will have to come back tomorrow and listen to the entire album. Love this group, but I only discovered them through interaction with another bloggeer, Roland Yoemans.

I hope your release party went well today.

Norma Beishir said...

I must be one of the few people who avoids bloghops/blogfests like the plague!

I have to remember to tell my son about Within Temptation. He's a huge Evanescence fan and will probably love them as well!

I already have some of the books in the boxed set....

Cynthia said...

I listened to a couple minutes of this song, and already, I'm impressed by its dramatic range. I might listen to it while I write!

Jo said...

Unfamiliar with the band. Good luck with the books.

Loni Townsend said...

That's some epic music. Grats on the underrated book release!

Mary Waibel said...

I love Within Temptation- and those are great songs.

You should check out Kamelot (especially the Ghost Opera album-my fave) and Avantasia (especially The Scarecrow and The Mystery of Time albums.)

If you like those and are looking for more, let me know! I'm happy to share!!

Robin said...

I've discovered so many new things due to this blogfest. Thanks for sharing yours!

SC Author said...

I love music that fits my books. They're gold to me. And when you find that perfect song....no words can describe it :)
