Britney Spears - Greatest Hits: My Prerogative (2004)

Toxic is probably the best song ever.

David Bowie - Never Let Me Down (1987)

It's pretty funny really: Bowie himself never liked this record much since it bookended a period in his life where he felt frustrated and unsatisfied, but it's precisely because so many dismiss it (including him) that I find it a compelling listen. There's some great late 80's poptimism going on here, and the Man Who Fell To Earth's magical white powder can definitely be found here sprinkled about, even if it isn't a game changer.




Tears For Fears - The Seeds Of Love (1989)

I periodically revisit this outing just to remind myself why it stays in my top ten albums of all time without being budged despite the always growing influx of new aquisitions: the "mood" of these songs and the huge arrangements are a wonder to behear. Big progressive rock influence everywhere yet the songs remain memorable and focused with some of the best production ever to boot. Every note played and word sung has a good reason to be there.

Never heard any Tears for Fears bar a few well known tracks but that album sounds very appealing. Where should I start with them and what should I expect?

Yorke is absolutely right....and you can't go wrong with any TFF release really. I think a lot of people around here would tell you to check out Songs From The Big Chair if you like really melodic synth-pop with a bit of a rock edge. Beyond that, The Seeds Of Love is a more organic sounding "big" rock album (lots of varied instrumentation, more jazz influence, etc.) and both of the records that lead singer Roland Orzabal did under the TFF name afterward, 1993's Elemental and 1995's Raoul And The Kings Of Spain follow up on Seeds Of Love's sound with more alternative rock & trip-hop influences.

I'm in the camp that does not like NLMD, but that may change as I go through his discography with older, somewhat more discerning ears. I said somewhat! Leave me alone!

TFF album is absolutely one of the best of all time. They don't put one toe wrong on it, never mind a foot.

Or you could start with their greatest hits, Tears Roll Down...

Here's a bunch of stuff I've been into lately.



Waking Aida - Full Heal
Not even into post rock much anymore but this is fantastic




Boyfrndz - Breeder
I enjoy their sound here a lot. Dark and brooking but with very high and soaring vocals.




The Dears - Times Infinity Volume ONe
Haven't listened to these guys in years but their new record is boss.



La Luz - Weirdo Shrine
Really love the guitar work on this one.



Pretend - Tapestry'd Life
Great sophmore record from these guys.

Sky Song by Sarah Hopkins & Alan Lamb

may have talked about this one before, but still dig it. A mix of cello and telegraph wires, and boy is it wonderful.

Thank you for posting that. I vaguely remembered the premise of Lamb's Primal Image and was unsuccessful in finding who it was by for quite a long time. I'll check out Sky Song as well.
