    Literally a random album review click on AVClub.

    Ah, Genesis when Peter Gabriel was with them and was young and had a full head of hair. What the hell happened to him after Up, anyway? I want another album, dammit.

    Something about Selling England turns me slightly off. I do love I Know What I Like (unsurprisingly enough) and Firth of Fifth to bits, though.

    The Trials of Van Occupanther topped quite a few 2006 best of lists. I've never really given them a serious listen, but they aren't exactly obscure. The Courage of Others slipped off my radar due to mediocre reviews (and the fact that I'm already balls deep in absorbing my musical backlog) but it sounds like I'll have to give it a spin.

    You might not like it. But the Pitchfork review was terrible.

    PS Sulphur - Gabriel released a new album last week.

    I wasn't referring specifically to the Pitchfork review so much as the general critical consensus. Not that critical praise means a whole lot, but it is one method of identifying possible needles in the haystack that is new music.

    as is an Aja rec

    Aha, there he is. He also had quite a bit of input into the Wall-E soundtrack apparently, though I thought it was only because of the credits track, Down to Earth.

    Last song - Journey of the Sorcerer from The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy soundtrack. I'm amused that they snuck that one in.

    Ha, in that case you should probably track down their first album, Bamnam and Slivercork. They pretty-convincingly channel Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips (oh god I just said that) but there's a sad and intimate presence that, at least for me, is more appealing (enough to place in my personal top ten/decade list). Bamnan feels like a great children's book set to music, and I think it's been severely underrated by retroactive critics.

    Courage of Others sounds nearly nothing like the band in those days, though. Van Occupanther is sort of a weird compromise between the two.

    The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale of New York

    I know it's past Christmas but I just can't shake it out, it's too awesome.

    The Flashbulb - Steel For Pappa/Dirt Bikes and Street Vendors

    Easily one of the best artists around at the moment.

    Thanks, Aja! That's fantastic timing. I'm slightly disappointed it's a cover album, of all things, but careful what you wish for, I guess? Pitchfork hated it, but eh... I guess I'll form my own opinion about what's ostensibly an album of soaring string arrangements by m'self.

    I'm pretty sure that sums up AC/DC's career.

    Too true!


    I'm listening to Pink Floyd: Echoes from the live at Pompeii video on YouTube.

    A Pink Floyd guy?

    Just a minute ago listened to Pink Floyd - Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk. ^^ I recently DLed Live At Pompeii , but too lazy to actually watch it. I've heard the Pompeii Live stuff several times though.

    Yeah I remember Pink Floyd was really popular among teenygoths about 10 years ago for some reason.

    Does it matter? I've only 'discovered' Pink Floyd half a year ago and love it. I don't care if it's still popular, or for who it's meant for.
