    David Bowie's Black Star video is still so epic

    I Can't Give Everything Away still breaks my heart, I think it always will, from the very first opening note.

    Dolores O'Riordan has died at 46

    She drowned in a bath tub due to alcohol making her fall asleep. Bless her.
  3. I stream on the go with Spotify premium, love the playlists and the convenience, but I rarely ever listen to albums on it, for albums I buy vinyl and sometimes a CD if there’s a deluxe edition worth getting. honestly I don’t feel as though I can appreciate an album properly unless I’ve actually bought it physically so I can hold it, and put the needle on it.
  4. Been listening all weekend. Both vinyl (at home) and CD in the car. I’m in love.
  5. But I wouldnt consider "Directors Cut" a "remaster" - those were, as Wiki puts it, ".....remixed and restructured, three of which were re-recorded completely...." Those can be fun to hear but I dont like wasting full release cycles on them. Tack them on with something else, fine. Wasnt into Kylies orchestrals or George's. A Director's Cut also came with the remastered versions of The Sensual World and the Red Shoes, mine is a 3CD set.
  6. I’ve started collecting the new remastered vinyl, I listened to Station To Station the other day and it sounded great, looking forward to my New Career New Town box set arriving tomorrow, I’m fascinated by this era. Hopefully that glitch on Heroes is fixed. For me, a new reissue / remastered pressing all the way, I’ve had so many original pressings that initially look fine but then tend to to have excessively loud cracks and pops, and other issues like jumping on the first song (usually the hit single). Also, the latest batch of reissues have been on sale in HMV recently, so it’s worth keeping an eye out for deals.

    Years and Years

    Great album, red vinyl for me.

    It was available, I only heard about this release on the day while queuing, I managed to get it in Manchester.

      Really? I thought they'd be around £20 so that's good. Thanks!

    2. tasteinmen


      I think it depends on the store, the one I went to everything was at least £25. Such an expensive day.

      That good to know. Don't feel so ripped off!

    WTF...now the demise of CDs?

    I can't find my copy of Gold Experience, and now it sell rather high so it's not like I can replace it.

    WTF...now the demise of CDs?

    I feel as though this whole “end of CDs” thing is being forced upon us. I’ve seen social media meme posts such as “things I no longer have in my house”, CDs and DVDs being one of them, and all the comments were people declaring they still have all their CDs and DVDs. I don’t know anyone who is CD free.
  12. Someone sent me the Kylie link on Popjustice, do you want it? I'm happy to share.

      Yeah I'd love to check it out!

    Bowie vinyl reissues

    I want to get Low and Heroes but think I might wait until they are £12 on amazon. Also waiting to find out if Heroes has been fixed. Last I heard the botched discs were replaceable through the label. I got Hunky Dory as a gift but haven’t opened it yet. I mainly use my Nothing Has Changed Vinyl when in the mood for Bowie.

    Dolores O'Riordan has died at 46

    Absolutely gutted by this, one of my favourite bands, her voice was angelic. I've been obsessed with her solo album Are You Listening recently, such a sad loss. RIP Dolores.

    I quite like the lead single from the Xmas album, I was a bit harsh on it at first but it’s actually really cute.

    Christmas Music

    Lmao, Kidz Bop, I couldn’t believe that’s actually an album when I saw it advertised on TV.
  18. And in 2017 we still don’t have the correct versions of the albums...
  19. Probably because it took a long time to get her back catalogue on iTunes, or was that Metallica.
  20. I think there is a family package for £14.99 a month. it is established that if you only stream music and don’t buy it then therefore you don’t own it?
  21. I honestly can't remember the last time I bought a digital download, if I want to own something I'll buy the CD or vinyl, I now use Spotify to stream when I'm on the go, and I really like it, when I see people refusing to pay £9.99 a month because they are happy with the 'free version with ads', I can't help but question why.

    Christmas Music

    I really love The Carpenter's Christmas Portrait album, Merry Christmas Darling is one of my favourite Xmas songs of all time, the rest of the album is sublime.

    Garbage thread

    Ha so true. I thought the same as I typed that sentence.

    What happened to Kiesza??

    I loved this song at the time, it reminded me of the 90s sound so much.
