  Promised land - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to the Bible, the Land of Israel (Hebrew transliteration: Eretz Yisrael) was promised to the descendants of Hebrew patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by God, making it the Promised land.
The concept is frequently used symbolically by Christians, especially in hymnody as a reference to Heaven, or to a new land, such as North America colonized by the Pilgrims.
In the Bible, particularly in Genesis, Deuteronomy and Joshua, the Land of Israel was promised as an everlasting possession.

Land, born in Houston and raised in San Diego, moved to Los Angeles in the early '50s.

Land remains one of the most impressive and deep improvisers in jazz.

 Cockaigne - tScholars.com
Pieter Bruegel the Elder's The Land of Cockaigne, painted in 1567.
Cockaigne was a medieval land, a mythical land of plenty, where all the harshness of medieval peasant life did not exist.
Like Atlantis and El Dorado, the land of Cockaigne was a fictional utopia, a place where idleness and gluttony were the principal occupations.

 The Prodigy : The Fat of the Land - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Few albums were as eagerly anticipated as The Fat of the Land, the Prodigy's long-awaited follow-up to Music for the Jilted Generation.
The Fat of the Land was touted as the album that would bring electronica/techno to a wide American audience; in Britain, the group already had a staggeringly large following that was breathlessly awaiting the album.
The Fat of the Land doesn't have quite enough depth or variety to qualify as a flat-out masterpiece, but what it does have to offer is damn good.

Land of Chocolate is Jonn Buzby's next effort after the dissolution of Finneus Gauge, where he played drums with his brother, keyboardist Christopher Buzby (Echolyn).
Lonely Land was released by The Laser's Edge, one of the two premier prog rock labels in the US (Syn-phonic is the other), and is the debut recording by a Swedish band who recreate the sound of the seventies, complete with the ubiquitous Mellotron.
The album highlight, however, is the balladic "Between Sleeping and Dreaming", a song that combines melodic beauty and tastefully decorative, yet dynamic keyboard arrangements with skill that is all too rare in contemporary neo-prog.

 Harold Land Album Reviews
As a result of this, he based himself in Los Angeles afterwards, and at the time (the mid-50’s), the West Coast wasn’t exactly recognized as a hotbed of talent and innovation, so opportunities to attract attention and good deals were few.
Unfortunately, “The Fox” is the only one of its kind on the album, which is not to say the remainder is sub-par, but it’s less exciting.
Land’s other composition, “Little Chris” (dedicated to his son), always reminds me a bit of Coltrane’s “Spiral” (from Giant Steps, recorded a few months before these sessions), not only because of the remarkable single notes-intro, but also because of the way in which it develops into a light swing.

 BBC - Dance Review - Unkle, Never, Never, Land
Even without the Star power that never never land has (the only REAL stars that collaborated with them were Ashcroft and Yorke), Psyence Fiction stands out as a great album that takes the listener in a tri-hop, hip-hop, drum and bass roller coaster ride that surprises at every corner.
This new album is easier to listen to and that's what disappoints me a bit, but after 3 times of listening if have to admit that this album too is really great, but i still prefer the more laid down music of psyence fiction.
There are tracks on this album that are very much like a window into your own soul leaving goose bumps that will return for a number of plays of this sublime album.

 EvilSponge: Album: Land by Patti Smith
Land is a retrospective anthology, but it includes more than just “Best of” songs.
Packaged in a simple fl and white fold-out cardboard cover smaller than most double-CD albums, Land’s presentation is both moving and unostentatious.
While the covers are whimsical and unexpected, Land offers no hint about Smith’s musical direction following the reflective Gung Ho and little solace in the aftermath of 9/11.

 BBC - Rock & Alt Review - Biffy Clyro, Infinity Land
The album, which was produced by the band and with the help of Foo Fighters and Feeder producer Chris Sheldon, is crammed with 13 sprawling songs that are a testament to the Scottish trio's work rate.
AMAZING, this album is so good i havent stopped listening to it in school as well, also have had my cd player confiscated till the end of term because i wos listening to it in history, luckily end of term is tomorrow.
actually this album reminds me of what the strokes would be like if they only had one guitarist and a wind up monkey on the drums and a lead singer lacking any sort of tone recognition.

 Ceredwen - Legends Of The Celts and The Golden Land Album Reviews at Musical Discoveries
It is clear from the initial harmonies on their first album that Ceredwen have found the magic needed to interest lovers of modern and progressive Celtic music.
The album is again accompanied by a lovely fully illustrated booklet with complete lyrics (in Welsh) as well as accompanying English translation and short narratives that introduce the songs telling the album's story.
Vocally more harmonious and richer overall, the group's second album is a perfect mate for their first; the two work quite well played sequentially one after the other, with the second album illustrating a significant development in the ensemble's musical direction.

 ORPHANED LAND Mabool - The Story of The Three Sons of Seven reviews and MP3   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The album closes with "Rainbow," which musically seems like a bit of an anticlimax after "The Storm Still Rages Inside." However, since it was necessary for the completion of the story, I'll let them off the hook for that one, too.
My favorites are Ocean Land, with its middle eastern flavor mixed with death metal, and the title track, which is a great "journeymen" type of song with all sorts of intricacies.
I knew Orphaned Land, by a total coincidence, from watching TV after midnight and seeing their video, "Norra El Norra" in the israeli music channel (24), and since then i'm with them...

 Bela Fleck & The Flecktones - The Hidden Land DUALDISC (Album Review)
Coming after the sprawling, overly ambitious Little Worlds, the resulting album is a welcome return to form for the group.
The Hidden Land boasts no distracting special guests, and containing a mere 13-tracks, it undeniably is a more focused affair that largely sounds as if Pat Metheny and Dave Brubeck had collaborated on a bluegrass project.
Throughout The Hidden Land, Béla Fleck & The Flecktones employs an assortment of odd time signatures, but by combining polyrhythmic percussion, hypnotic banjo, soaring woodwinds, and driving bass, the group effortlessly traverses the complexity of its material.

"Land of the Diamond Sun" is recommended for bright, high-spirited children ages 5-11, as well as their parents and teachers.

 Biffy Clyro - Infinity Land : album review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Album opener Glitter And Trauma sets the tone - initially pretending to be some piece of Warp electronic, then embracing those jerky guitars Franz Ferdinand have recently annexed and finally hitting you with the actual song, a kind of rock/grunge/punk hybrid that people like the Foo Fighters have perfected.
You're left with that feeling a lot on Infinity Land, a sense of what could have been if the band had been slightly less afraid to take songs down the more interesting and less well-travelled musical path.
This is an album with an identity crisis.

 Amazon.co.uk: Permission to Land [Explicit Lyrics]: Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The Darkness's Permission to Land is an entertaining and unabashed return to the pomp-rock of a bygone age, when mullet-clad dinosaurs travelled the stadiums of the world--back before Nirvana and their lank-haired ilk swept the world in an unstoppable tide of flannel shirts and overwrought earnestness.
I bought this album when it first came out and was completely in love with it from the first few seconds of Black Shuck.
The album has a wickid sense of humour, very tounge in cheek that is very enjoyable.

 The Daily Vault Album Reviews : Land Speed Record
That all being said, Land Speed Record is not the kind of album you may think it is.
It's almost as if the soundman was on the job for one day, and was discovering just what all these cool little knobs and slides did.
In a sense, that's really a shame, 'cause Land Speed Record could have been a nice showcase for such Husker Du compositions as "MTC," "All Tensed Up," "Bricklayer" (which would come into its own on Everything Falls Apart) and "Ultracore".

Whether it's some sort of backlash against the popularity of lighter, moody rock fare from artists like Coldplay, or due to society's resurfacing need to simply RAWK out, there's no denying the fact that The Darkness's burgeoning popularity seems a bit surprising.
As a whole, Permission to Land, is a surprisingly good listen from start to finish.
However, one may be surprised by the band's tendency to slow things down a bit more than might be suggested by their ass-kicking moments, most notably in the required power-ballad "Love is Only a Feeling" and the more pop-oriented "Friday Night" (which, strangely, is my favorite moment on the album..

Having won the loyalty of Jamaican record buyers through numerous singles and albums for a variety of producers, the singer organized his own DEB imprint, with the help of Castro Brown, in 1978.
Though this is essentially a reissue of that set, the team at Blood & Fire has gone to great lengths to ensure that The Promised Land is much more than that as well.
Throughout the album, Brown's words are pushed and pulled by rhythms both gentle and tough, executed by musicians as skilled as drummer Sly Dunbar, bassist Errol "Flabba" Holt, and guitarist Eric "Bingy Bunny" Lamont.

Throughout the late eighties and nineties, Smith not only wrote more and more beautiful music, she also authored a number of books containing original poetry and artwork.

The opening few seconds of new London quintet The Duke Spirit's album is enough to grab you by the nipples and make you wonder what the fuss about so many bands who take merely one element of a good sound has been all about.
We'd recommend this album thoroughly, even with the knowledge that the band probably don't give a toss whether or not anyone buys it.
Even the quieter moments like Hello To The Floor are less suggestive of a singer addressing her audience than they are of a drunken slump down a wall at pub closing time.

Land Ho falls somewhere in the middle of the fusion universe; a little softer than the Dixie Dregs, yet considerably more rocking than Pat Metheny.

The album is full of very well crafted uptempo compositions.
