sherryfinzerThe first month of the new year begins strongly with a Top Five that includes 3 CDs of the Month.  At the top is this month’s pick, Sherry Finzer’s haunting Sanctuary III: Beyond the Dream.  There’s last month’s pick, Wax Tailor’s propulsive chanson and Hollywood sound collage, Phonovision Symphonic Orchestra and there is next months pick, the backwoods, global ambiance of Arcadia by Fernwood.  We also note at #12, Tangerine Dream’s Mala Kunia, the last album released during the life of Edgar Froese who ricocheted off the planet on January 20.
