Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

Last week I bought 'Listen' by 'David Guetta' because HMV didn't have the new 'Dualers' cd and in a word, it's ..................'samey' This is what the youngsters listen to apparently, dancey, beats per minute, drum 'n' bass, electrnica etc. My understanding is that he's a superstar DJ (please fee...

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

Gonna need advice for Monday. The obvious choice is The 3rd Three Years, but that's not technically 'new' material. My daughter would insist on Olly Murs, which is no doubt decent 'pop' music, but not very rock n roll & that leaves what? I've been through 8 pages on Amazon's new releases & not found...

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

This week I bought 'Lost On The River' by 'The New Basement Tapes' and in a word it's...............................mixed. The New Basement Tapes are a collective of musicians Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons of course), Rhiannon Giddens (lead singer of Carolina Chocolate Drops), Jim J...

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

This week I bought 'Sonic Highways' by the Foo Fighters and in a word it's........................samey. That's not to say I dislike it but I do have some opinions on this one. Firstly, let me say I like the Foos a lot having at least copies of all of their albums to date. I think my main problems w...

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

This week I bought 'Indian Ocean' by 'Frazey Ford' & in a phrase it's.............'soulful & chilled' Got this on the recommendation on 'Hello Newman' on ' Greasy Lake' Springsteen fan forum who suggested it was in contention for his album of the year. I don't rate it quite that highly, but I've en...

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

This week I bought 'Honor Is All We Know' by 'Rancid' & much to my surprise I quite like it............... The week's big seller was always gonna be Taylor Swift & I bought this on the advice of 'Captain Gas' from 'btx' I have to say that although I knew the name 'Rancid' I couldn't name one of thei...

How much did you raise?

Not quite finished yet, but almost £500. Not too bad given I was off work and didn't collect much from colleagues as a result.

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

This week I bought 'Melody Road' by Neil Diamond & in a word it's.................'patchy'.......for me at least. I've written this review out twice & lost it each time so here's a shorter version. It's an attempt to cover all bases & look back over the career of a musical troubadour by following hi...

Re: A BRAND New cd each week this year - suggestions?

Surely the point is if all big artists start giving it away (or their record co, outside parties like 'Apple'), it'll make it a lot harder for new bands to get into the marketplace, let alone compete with freebies, lol You say this and then only go and buy albums which are available in a record sho...
