Can't say I feel the same...
There's something horribly, monstrously wrong with you.

Yes, but this is new. New and unsettling.

Default Update for week ending January 26 2014

Ah, the responsibilites that weigh me down. Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Or not, as the case may be. Rain or shine, healthy or ill, I do my best to have the very latest updates in the Journals section all packaged up neatly for you to read in one convenient location. I am the ultimate Journal One-Stop Shop, aren't I? But enough about me (who said that?) --- let's see what you guys have been up to. Oh, and me too. I'm a guy like me!

Anteater is still doing his best to educate us on the forgotten genius of Gino Vanelli in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...n-dollars.html

while down at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...seur-cave.html Briks is listening to some more classic albums he has never heard (wonder where he got that idea?) with the Stones and the Kinks getting the spotlight

and Butthead is describing what I can only assume to be a typical night out for him in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...therapy-s.html. No music yet, but stay tuned, he says: it's on the way.

A new journal this week as Deviouz tells us http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ou-want-d.html and it seems we do. First up, after a brief introduction, is a very interesting description of what sounds to be a very interesting album. Great start.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...chameleon.html takes us back to the sights, sounds and happenings of the last year of the twentieth century. That's right, DJ Chameleon is only nineteen years ahead of Unknown Soldier, checking out 1999. I bet he partied like it was, too, When it was. If you know what I mean.

Another pile of eclectic and diverse albums coming your way courtesy of http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ening-log.html, with Donso, Cave In, Hum and, er, Robbie Williams, to name but a few. And a couple of Japanese ones, but I ain't even gonna try writing their names!

Being a Seattle boy, you'd certainly expect Ki to talk about Nirvana in his series on bands from his hometown, and this week he does. Be kind; he's not feeling too well but has still managed to put an article together for us in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nal-music.html. Hope you feel better soon man!

There's another – the last apparently --- installment of “Jazz for Trollheart” in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...i-journal.html, though Neapolitan may be rebranding and continuing it, he says. Neap, I will be listening, but I just need to get so many other things out of the way first. Not least this update!

People can and do say that “Nevermind” was one of the defining albums of the nineties (also responsible for making two words into one!) but how can you not have heard the defining album of the seventies, Powerstars? Well, it's one of the “classic albums he's never heard” --- hey! Is this deja vu or what? --- in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...sicalness.html this week.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...reen-13-a.html is reflecting on some “Toldeo '71 memories” this week, and showcasing some ads for some of the films Screen is featuring, has featured or will be featuring. Presumably. If you like grindhouse, apparently, this is the place to be.

I'm slowly beginning to get back up to speed with my journals, and in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...d-journal.html you'll find reviews of albums by The Reasoning and Journey, while http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-emporium.html has more Red Dwarf and Supernatural, plus a new section in which I pick apart the bad plot holes in the movies I've seen. First up: “Flightplan”. Finally http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ver-heard.html is back, and I'm listening to Yes's “Close to the edge” for the first time, and seemingly pushing some people close to their edge! Next week, expect the return of “Trollheart's Psychic Reviews”. Yeah I know: I really made your day, didn't I?

Let there be rock! And metal! But mostly metal... Unknown Soldier is retreading the glory days of the NWOBHM in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...y-history.html, where 1980 sees the rise of bands like Def Leppard, Saxon and The Michael Schenker Group, or MSG as we liked to call them. Not to be confused with food ingredients!

Leaving us with http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...who-thing.html where, while he waits for a particular DVD to pop through his letterbox, Urban is reviewing “Time and the Rani”, with his usual mix of sarcasm, comedy and razor-sharp wit coupled with an almost anorak-like knowledge of the facts!

And that's it for another update. See you all in a week's time.
Till then,
Toodles!

Sorry about that. Somehow I thought I had covered it last week. Must have been a dream... Pressures of work you know. I'm only including the first entry as strictly speaking your album entry came in past the deadline, and anyway I'll need something for next week's update, in case you don't get to write any more before next Sunday. Again, sorry for the omission: just totally slipped by. Hope the entry below makes up for it.

Can some kind mod please add this (just what follows) to the main entry for this week? Thanks

Pipping even Urban to the finishing line this week, our own virtuoso YorkeDaddy is back with his third journal, http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-personal.html, and the first one he's looking at is Broken Social Scene. Expect the usual deep ruminations and dissertations from this man who not only is a fantastic composer but one hell of a writer too. Could make next year's awards a close-run thing...

I know. I'm something of a fan. Just surprised you are, with all your mad Japanese, African and god-knows-whatall music!

I recently came to the realisation that I essentially like pretty much everything I hear.

Trollheart, let's get something straight. I have MANY classic albums I have not yet heard. I mean, I've not listened to a single Pink Floyd record!
