You are right, you know! My iPod freezes all the time, my CD player keeps jumping and the radio is awful up here. There's nothing like vinyl!

There's people who manage to freeze their jumping vinyl.
All the downsides of vinyl (cracks & pop, distortion) are down to user error I'm afraid .

But surely these have minimal effect on music listening? I still think they are better than CD players (although a lot less mobile!)

Song talks about an impossible love. That of the leaves is a metaphor. And BTW, I like the rhyme lyrics:

"Ahora sueñas con volver,.........Now you dream of coming back,
pero temes saber....................but you're afraid of knowing
que las hojas secas.................that dried leaves
sólo pueden caer
....................can only fall down.
"

Anyway, until five years ago they sang in English, publishing three albums under the name of Havalina Blu (Blu, with no final e).



A nice cover:

I can't stand pop and crackle, so to me they have a huge effect on music listening .
But most people really don't mind. I'm a bit of an audiophile

Pity about the language. It's really good otherwise...

Saw this thread and thought it would be a good place to start since I'm listening to a sneak peek preview of an album that comes out on the 21st that I doubt anyone is aware of, so I can share something.

Not sure if anyone here watches American Idol or not, but it's something I do with my 11 year old each year. A contestant from last season, James Durbin is the singer. He's put together a great band and I think the album is darn good. It's rock with a lot of wailing vocals, some awesome guitar shredding in some of the songs. It's a pretty nice mixture of songs. You can hear a little GNR, Green Day, Muse and 80's hair metal sound sort of all at once. Been listening to it all day, lol. If anyone wants to check it out here is a link to the full album stream...

(Apparently I can't post a link...but you can find the streaming album on Eonline website. Maybe someone else can find the link. They have the list of songs wrong, but someone listed the right order in the comments.)
