  1. God, just realised that apart from LTY, the only 2 new bits of music I've bought this year are Imploding the Mirage by the Killers and this Which actually originates in 2008 in an EP called The Start but finally got it's full release this year. And is quietly brilliant. Must try harder next year...
  2. Done. Annual vote of thanks to those who put all the effort in to run and moderate the board.
  3. Scottish football plunged into mourning over passing of national hero
  4. Sign up for the weeks free trial, then make sure you cancel. Believe me, it's worth a watch
  5. A few listens now. I'm blown away by the album. It's a masterpiece. The writing and the thread throughout of age, loss, acceptance, recovery, regret, pride and memory is just magnificent. Touching without being morose, sadness tinged with the joy of the good memories. The feeling of a life achieved whilst something also slips away. I've come out of a miserable 2 months of loss and he's given me tears, smiles and nods of the head in appreciation of sentiments. Above that though is the feel and the sound. The only other albums that come close to the energy and spontaneity of the playin
  6. Is it me, or is there a touch of The Promise at the beginning?
  7. So this is my release day so far. CD and Amazon MP3 Downloads ordered as post here is so bad, it could be next week before the CD arrives. Gets email with link to Amazon download. Clicks excitedly. Downloads album. Very quick. Opens folder. Sees.... "Letter to You" and "Ghosts". Aaaarrggh, it's the bloody single, not the album. Opens chat with Amazon. Sorted in 5 minutes. Now has full album. 3 songs in. Wow..... Burning Train blowing my socks off (although given the "Long Walk Home" undertones, that's hardly surprising. Now have to go on the daily standup videoconference
  8. Land of Hope and Dreams. On a train. Heading south to collect a car. And the second the sax solo kicked in we burst upon the Ribble estuary, low sun shining through the clouds and illuminating the view. Lovely.
  9. Ah, man. Another of the greats gone.
