Re: It's Personal: Nomination phase

Awesome choice. Almost picked this one. Glad you did. :music-rockon: Will it be too much if I tossed in Tyrone? I had intended to toss this in, but with Bootsy's marvelous choice of "On & On" and Toni's nominating "Windowseat", I wonder if it will be too much. You must be reading my mind. I went ba...

Re: Rank the Tracks: Beck's Odelay (1996)

Sad to see so few people making their ranks for this perfect album. It's impressive that Beck could compose an album that's half rap and half folk, and maintain the high quality through all these adventourous tracks, each one of them permeated with experimentation, via noises, samples and deconstruc...

Re: Radiohead's "A Moon Shaped Pool"

Listened to it for the first time now, and it's apparently a great album. In some aspects, it's very similar to In Rainbows, which is my favorite from the band and one of my all time faves. For today, the first two tracks and "The Numbers" were the most impressive ones. Let's see how the album looks...

Totally agree about "The Cross": huge track. In fact,the last 3 songs make for an ending as grand as the album deserves to have. I don't get why "Adore" is so unanimously considered the worst piece, even if all the rest is so good. The clearly forgettable track, for me, is "Forever in My Life". What...
