    Album of the year. It's just stunning from start to finish. She's performing new single 'The Rarest Birds' on Graham Norton tonight.

    Blondie thread

    Brilliant album! Easily the best they've done in over 30 years. The only minor quibbles are the vocal effects on the chorus of 'When I Give Up' turn what could be a beautifully simple and elegant song into something distorted and near unlistenable. The male vocals on 'Love Level' don't work too well either. Other than that it's ace! 'Already Naked'; 'Gravity' and especially 'Too Much' are thoroughly Blondie and totally pop! I love it!
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVFi1gsAFSA First TV performance of the new single. Amazing.

    New single 'Long Time' is fantastic, so that's three out of three brilliant tracks so far. 'Pollinator' is shaping up to be the best album of the year so far.

    'My Monster' sounds absolutely bloody thrilling. This is all too wonderful. Blondie are shaping up to be a real highlight of 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kPk2ZRuARE
  13. Excellent album and has weathered the years remarkably well compared with much of what was around in 1987. Looking forward to having the 12'' mixes disc on the deluxe edition.

    George Michael thread

    'Freeek!' was a fantastic song & video and it should have done so much better than it did in the charts but if i remember rightly the video was getting some unnecessary negative press at the time with its sexual content and having the dogs on leads that turn into women on leads. This and 'Shoot The Dog' should have been huge but instead of Madonna's canny route of releasing something softer ('Bedtime Stories' / 'Something To Remember') following her 'Erotica' era, George Michael followed the sex 'scandal' and 'Outside' era with further unapologetic, exuberant proclamations of a sexual and political nature. I was courageous and all kinds of brilliant but niche and not at all helping to recover the broader appeal he had long enjoyed. I've been re-visiting the 'Faith' album and with a few minor tweaks it is pop perfection: 1. Faith 2. Father Figure 3. I Want Your Sex (Parts 1 & 2) 4. One More Try 5. Hard Day (Shep Pettibone Mix) 6. Hand To Mouth 7. Look At Your Hands 8. Monkey (7'' Edit) 9. Kissing A Fool 10. I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me) 11. A Last Request 12. A Different Corner (Extended) perfect.

    George Michael thread

    Devastating. It's easy to forget with recent years of relative inactivity, but he was *massive* throughout my childhood and early adult years. His peers for so long were only the likes of Madonna, Prince, & Michael Jackson. And what an incredible talent. His ability to translate matters of the heart with such directness and transparency and vulnerability and insight made him the soundtrack to so many of my relationships. I don't know how to post video's here, but if I did... Kissing A Fool Cowboys & Angels Older A Different Corner Too Funky One More Try Precious Box I Knew You Were Waiting For Me Careless Whisper Everything She Wants Wake Me Up Before You Go Go Heal The Pain Outside Last Christmas Jesus To A Child Freedom '90 Edge of Heaven You Have Been Loved the list just goes on and on and on. If I had to list my top 10 artists of all time, four of them (Bowie, Prince, Pete Burns and now George) have all died within a year. Utter sadness.
