Yesterday afternoon, I was shocked when I find out that the highly anticipated collaboration album from Ely Buendia and the late Master Rapper Francis Magalona is already out in the market. And the worst thing about it is that it has been in the record bar shelves since May 19! I totally freaked out when I learned about the news because nobody told me - not even Yahoo! Philippines, Philmusic or Spot.PH.

Okay, I need to calm down. I still have two more months to spend  here in Saudi before I can go to Music One in Glorietta. Good thing there are sites playing samples of the songs off "In Love and War". This album contains ten cuts with collaborations with some of most respected musicians like Gloc 9, Pupil, Hilera and much more.

All of us initially got a taste of what this album would sound like when we heard Kiko and Ely screaming "Siya ay dambuhala...." in "Higante". It was released for free through all sorts of media. Right now, the carrier single "Bus Stop", a rendition of one of the classics from The Hollies, is invading the charts. Listening to this album just give me the goosebumps. I'll be listening to it all weekend so that I can give you a biased review later.

For now, this is the list of songs included in ILAW:
01. Higante feat. Hardware Syndrome
02. Bleeder feat. Pupil
03. Bus Stop
04. Buzzkill  featuring Gloc 9 and Turbogoth
05. Dreamdate
06. Hands On feat. Hilera
07. Bum Ticker feat. Hilera and Brigada
08. Wasak Waltz
09. It's All Right, Ma(I'm Only Bleeding) feat. The Purplechickens and Radha 
10. Unstrung Heroes (DJ Kimosave Remix)

I'm definitely buying a copy of this when I get back home.
