Went demoing speakers a week ago and the people in the shop must have been sick of listening to track 2 The Rover. Thats my acid test for good rock music, if the drums didn't sound right then they were ticked off the list. (KEF R300's did a pretty good job of it I may add).
At the complete opposite side of the spectrum to Led Zepp, I'm currently really enjoying Richard Thompson's latest offering. Unlike anything he's ever released before..
Angel Haze - New York EP
The Eels Blinking lights and other reverlations
Principle Of Moments was better
Arcam Solo Mini/Monitor Audio RX1/Cambridge Audio 751BD/Samsung 37” LCD
abit of welsh metal
Night Buzz from John Norum's Face the truth
I bought it direct from Richard Thompson's own website, I'm on his mailing list so I had pre-ordered it.
As I said before, it's unlike anything he's released before. Rumor & Sigh / You Me Us it ain't!
It started off life as a single short piece of music to hightlight the double bass, and morphed into a full length musical.
Features the great Harry Shearer as the orator, a full string section etc. and has songs about serial killers, art critics, gangsters molls, gluttons amongst many. The usual RT objects of scorn!
Whether you'll like it or not I can't possibly say.The nearest to it for the variety would be his 1000 Years of Popular Music album.
Might be worth waiting until it's on Spotify to check it out first.
Personally I love it.
