This album (Bob Dylan's Tempest) should come with a health warning. The track, 'Long and Wasted Years', contains a lethal hook I can't get out of my head. Make it go away!
Face Value by Phil Collins, from a ripped CD I picked up off eBay for a whopping 99p plus £1.50 delivery. Very sad really, eBay is awash with CDs that no-one seems to want anymore thanks to MP3s and iTunes downloads, yet the format betters the pair of them for SQ. What a bizarre world we live in.
