I am listening to ZZ top's "Eliminator" and Tom Petty's "Southern Accents".

This evenings LP is The Flower Kings "Banks of Eden". I reviewed this album for Metaltalk.net, and was sent an MP3 to review from. I really struggled to hear into the mix, and was finding it difficult to write the review, even though I enjoyed the music. On a whim I bought the LP/CD package from my local shop and the music came alive, especially on LP. How anyone can listen to compressed music as a main source beats me.

It's still Bend Beyond by Woods for me. A truly great album. West-coast with a scratchy psych-pop twist.

Heroes - David Bowie
Mark Knopfler's "Privateering" from last year. I wasn't a huge Dire Straits fan but this is a really enjoyable listen, and excellent quality sound too.
