  1. Not only is it new, it's - fortunately - really good!
  2. Agreed. (Apart from the fact that the first album was released in 1999..)
  3. 20/100 I also have at least six albums that should be in the Top 10: Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf Cat Power - The Greatest Solange - When I Get Home Lambchop - Nixon Bob D - "Love & Theft" White Stripes - White Blood Cells
  4. In September 1969 the Beatles were planning a new album... https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/sep/11/the-beatles-break-up-mark-lewisohn-abbey-road-hornsey-road Fascinating stuff.. ........we hear John suggesting that each of them should bring in songs as candidates for the single. He also proposes a new formula for assembling their next album: four songs apiece from Paul, George and himself, and two from Ringo – “If he wants them.” John refers to “the Lennon-and-McCartney myth”, clearly indicating that the authorship of their songs, hitherto presented to the public as a sacrosanct partnership, should at last be individually credited. Then Paul – sounding, shall we say, relaxed – responds to the news that George now has equal standing as a composer with John and himself by muttering something mildly provocative. “I thought until this album that George’s songs weren’t that good,” he says, which is a pretty double-edged compliment since the earlier compositions he’s implicitly disparaging include Taxman and While My Guitar Gently Weeps. There’s a nettled rejoinder from George: “That’s a matter of taste. All down the line, people have liked my songs.” John reacts by telling Paul that nobody else in the group “dug” his Maxwell’s Silver Hammer, a song they’ve just recorded for Abbey Road, and that it might be a good idea if he gave songs of that kind – which, John suggests, he probably didn’t even dig himself – to outside artists in whom he had an interest, such as Mary Hopkin, the Welsh folk singer. “I recorded it,” a drowsy Paul says, “because I liked it.”
  5. It's so big that light takes about 10 billion years to move across the structure
  6. I guess not many would agree, but I'm a big fan of the long, jazzy versions of Kitty's Back in 1975
  7. Q: What is the ultimate version of Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On? A:
