Peter Gabriel's first 4 albums.

All good, but the highlight has to be 3

Just dug out my old active monitors and paired them with a new DAC. My god, they sound good. I'd forgotten just how good music can sound. The monitors were packed away when I got ill as I was trying to simplify everything for my wife. Downloaded a 192k/24bit demo which I then converted to 44.1k/16bit (cd) and MP3/160mbs (typical streaming) for comparison.

People will tell you that your ear's response stops around 20k so anything above that is wasted. Rubbish! Anyone who says that has no idea how sound works (harmonics and inter/intra harmonics).

You really can tell the difference big time. All we need now is for the UK record industry to get realistic over the price. No chance!!! Still, I guess I can afford one album every 6 months or so.

Steven Wilson's Hand Cannot Erase

A melancholic but beautiful story of loneliness in todays internet connected world. Less jazzy then his previous couple of releases, with more modern elements and Porcupine Tree like parts.

Most likely be a contender for best album 2015 for me.

Leonard Cohen, Boxed set. Not something for those feeling a bit depressed ???

Go Pendulum! I've still got GN'R Live in the CD tray, I think that's about 6 months now.

Good stuff, love Silco and Immersion, not quite so keen on Colour but it's still good, just not so much my thing.

You should blast the Steven Wilson collab to link with my last post Tongue They should have done more, like the In Flames one was really good I thought.

Saw Less Than Jake and Yellowcard live in Birmingham last night, it was a good show but front man Ryan Key (of YC) sounded like he was struggling, which is a worry for the second night of a tour...

I didn't know Less Than Jake were still about. I remember dancing like a moron with all my mates to All My Best Friends Are Metalheads. Must have been about fourteen years ago.

I'm now listening to Beer by Reel Big Fish and remembering the first time I got really hammered.

Yup, still going, but you're right in the sense that they aren't big like they were in those days. Still all the original line up though so thats a plus. I think they are just such good fun it's always a nice time, must have seen them over a dozen times (saw them six times in one week...)

Haven't seen RBF but always preferred LTJ, Beer is a fantastic song though.
