well Im on my 5/6th listen of Depeche Mode - Delta Machine!
The soundscape on this album is haunting, the production is superb and sounds flawless on my RP3 - yes I love it!
Why cant more albums evoke such emotion!
It is a fantastic album isn't it? Just sounds so good.
My Rega is currently in dry dock awaiting a new Elys2 cartridge, so I'm saving my new copy of Delta Machine and satisfying myself with listening to it on Spotify at the moment. Can't wait to get the old girl back as I've missed my vinyl evenings!!

My text has seemingly disappeared.
Anyway, it was merely to say that the B-52s album is one of my wife's favourites and the one she always plays when any upgrade has taken place.
Reading this thread is still a vicarious thrill, as my system is in hibernation mode for a further four weeks.
Don't worry BBB, a Kiss album has never (dis)graced my turntable!!
How good is the morrissey one compared to the cd verison worth getting i do like that first of gang song.
Yes the vinyl does compare well to the CD. Rarely for a modern guitar-based vinyl pressing it sounds great.
double post, sry.

I really like the album, though the production is a bit over polished, but I absolutely love "Bushfire", hugely underrated track.
Are Kiss the most overrated band ever? It's difficult to think of a more deserving award winner in this category.
Enjoying the builders radio Charlie? Seriously, what station do they listen to?
LOUNGE: Panasonic TX-P50GT50 (is poorly) / Panasonic DMP-BDT120 / Yamaha RX-A2020 / Q Acoustics 2020i (front) / Q Acoustics 2020 (rear) / Q Acoustics 2000Ci / Q Acoustics1000Si / Roksan Radius 5.2 (is poorly, so Pro-ject Debut III) / Sky HD / WD My Book Live / Tacima CS-929
BEDROOM: Samsung LE32C450 / Sony BDP-S360 / Echostar HDS-600RS / Netgear WNCE2001
Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrhhhhh!!!!! I've filled in three responses now but none appear.
Once more, in edited format.
Kiss and Meatloaf are two of the most comically ridiculous bands who've had major success. I'd also add, for different reasons, Coldplay and Oasis to that list. Maybe a discussion for another day. I'm happy to rant about the woeful Gallaghers most days actually. Notwithstanding the handful of good songs on their zeitgeisty first two LPs.
Amyway, the builders are knocking down walls and generally causing dust mayhem to the merry tunes of Magic FM or some such. They claim to be on track for the end of May. So maybe by June (of this year, please) I'll be blasting out some B-52s and more whilst sitting in my new listening room.

A complete departure from my normal listening. Someone from work brought in some old LPs belonging to his parents for me to have a look at. Nothing remotely what I wanted, but in amongst the Val Doonican, Frank Ifield and Jim Reeves LPs was this rather splendid classical recording from 1972 of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.
