Sometimes, the best songs in the world are composed with the simplest elements – a voice and the heavenly strumming of guitar, especially an acoustic guitar. These basic elements make some songs not only memorable, but send them into legendary status. Acoustic music comprises music that solely or primarily uses instruments which produce sound through entirely acoustic means, as opposed to electric or electronic means.
The retronym “acoustic music” appeared after the advent of electric instruments, such as the electric guitar, electric violin, electric organ and synthesizer. These songs are offering a so-called “unplugged” experience to music fans. As acoustic music is beginning to widen its followers, Warner Music Malaysia proudly presents ACOUSTIC, a double-CD compilation featuring 36 tunes with “acoustic elements”.
You’d be hard pressed to beat the value in this collection – a wide ranging collection of “Acoustic” some classics and new tracks. Even if your CD collection numbers in the thousands, there are still enough artists on here most people do not have and you get a nice sampling of their music – and sure, some of the tracks from the more well-known artists like Jason Mraz or Bruno Mars most people already have but it doesn’t really detract from how great they are. For most people, it’s a chance to sample some of the best new singer-songwriters out there at an extremely reasonable price for 36 tracks.
Besides Jason Mraz and Bruno Mars, other popular names that can be found in ACOUSTIC including Norah Jones, Coldplay, Radiohead, Kings of Convenience, Eric Benet, Tamia, James Blunt, The Corrs, Secondhand Serenade, Kathryn Williams, Christina Perri and many more. ACOUSTIC can be purchased in all major music stores around Malaysia for only RM 44.90.
