Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Amanda – Everybody Doesn’t (2001)

Like Myra, Amanda (aka Amanda Louisa Kretz Lameche) was a single (unoriginally) monikered teen looking to ride the wave of teen pop that was huge at the time. Amanda was born in France, but her musical growth was in Sweden, where hot pop/dance/R&B producers BAG & Arnthor (think Janet, J Lo and Mya) and Bloodshy (think Britney) took production duties on her debut. Her big break came when she was signed to Madonna’s Maverick label, and her big break ended soon after when all the hype around her failed to create any hits (the album’s title track lingered in the bottom of the Billboard Hot 100). (Interestingly, her sister Anais also pursued a pop career in the girl group Play, and they too failed to get much attention.) Like Myra, Amanda got lost in the dust of artists whose hype machine and image were much more powerful. And like Myra, Amanda was purportedly to release a new album in 2007, though it hasn't seen the light of day yet.
