Muse - Absolution Bruce Springsteen - Devils and Dust Kaiser Chiefs - Employment Paul Simon - Graceland Octavia Spareti - Winter Enclosure (well limur has been pushing this one so I thought I ought to give it a go)
Reef - Getaway (pretty good but not as good as 'Rides') Fields of the Nephilim - Dawnrazor (still sounds great after all these years) Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed (classic Stones, ditto above comment, 'Midnight Rambler' is superb) Kaiser Chiefs - Employment (surprisingly good for modern music) Underneath What - What Is it? (cracking album with occasionally Jagger-esque vocals, shame they didn't stay off the drugs and make another record)
Gilby Clarke - Rubber DAD- Scare Yourself (This is excellent, a return to the classic sound after recent departures) Eels - Blinking Lights and Other revelations Love / Hate - Blackout in the Red Room (An oldie but goodie) Beck - Oderlay (The missus loves this album but I'm not that bothered)
Jimbob - you know what they say, variety being the spice of life and music being the food of love, and I do like spicy food!!
The Jesus and Mary Chain - April Skies ;D The House of Love - Destroy The Heart ;D The House of Love - Never ;D Gene Loves Jezebel - Bruises That Petrol Emotion - A Million Miles Away ;D ;D Furniture - Brilliant Mind ;D ;D ;D ;D
Jimi Hendrix – Blues (“….and if she don’t love me…..I know her sister will” = priceless)
Fun Lovin’ Criminals – Loco (“Ya gotta be crazy…..”)
Smashing Pumpkins – Siamese Dream
Northern Soul – compilation (not bad for £2.99 from Asda)
The Smiths – Meat Is Murder (not as good as I remembered it back in the day)
Jane’s Addiction – Ritual de lo Habitual (yes, again. What a fantastic band they were. “Three Days” is a masterpiece of epic proportions and “Been Caught Stealin” is probably the best pop-rock song ever. Their songs may not all have been radio-friendly with catchy choruses but I think JA created some very clever arrangements to produce an amazing blend of sounds. In my opinion, they were a band for people who liked to listen beneath the surface of a song. Not so impressed with their new stuff though)
Ginger - Live Begins at 40 (better than the track-list suggests but not as good as 'Great White Monkey') Led Zeppelin - I (superb blues/rock) The Beatles - 1967-1970: The Blue Album (better than the earlier, and poppier, singles. Some really great tunes here) AC/DC - Highway to Hell
Just waiting for my latest order from Amazon to arrive now......even more golden oldies......
(Simon, re. Hendrix and 'chaff' you have to blame his family and record-companies for releasing the chaff. His proper studio albums were brilliant, even if Electric Ladyland was a little over-indulgent.)
