what tunes are you listening to?

The Max Payne 3 soundtrack by Health, having replayed the game (and its predecessors) to celebrate the franchise's 20th anniversary.

Genesis live at Knebworth Park, at the end of their We Can't Dance tour, which took place 29 years ago today. You can watch and listen to the performance here: https://www.youtu...UVrjUIQEp4

Belouis Some. Smile

A friend loaned me a copy of Return to Ommadawn Mike Oldfield. It was interesting if not likeable. I am sufficiently familiar with the original Ommadawn to pick up on the references to it as the music progressed. I thought he had justabout got away with the sampling from the original that he used but then...I got to the final track which references the folksy whimsical song which closed the 1st album. What a terrible thing he has done there. I can't even explain what he did that was so wrong. Suffice to say, he completely ruined the album's homage to the original and, for me, rendered it unlistenable. I will play Ommadawn always but if I want to listen to something like Ommadawn, I'll stick with Hergist Ridge in the future.

Queen live at Knebworth Park - their last concert with Freddie Mercury, which took place 35 years ago today. Smile

Aqualung by Jethro Tull, to celebrate its 50th anniversary and flautist/vocalist Ian Anderson's 74th birthday. Smile

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds new hits compilation. Never heard any of them before, bought it on the recommendation of a friend.

Brilliant.

The long awaited Ghostbusters 2 score by Randy Edelman - after 30+ years, it's finally been released officially (fans have had to make do with a bootleg over the years consisting of cues ripped straight from the movie with the dialogue and sound effects cut out). Smile
 
sweevo
Any Queen song I can find written by bassist John Deacon, who turns 70 today. Smile

Genesis platinum collection... I am struggling with the remixes on this collection. Making some instrument or other more clear is not always the best thing for the track in question. Similar the place of the vocal in the mix. I am no great musician but I finally inderstand why fans get upset over remixes.

The two new ABBA songs, obviously. Totes emosh and all that.

I was surprised at how emotional I felt when I 1st listened to those 2 songs. A post covid tonic but also more than that. Regaining of something lost.

Freddie Mercury's solo material and some of his Queen stuff, to celebrate what would have been his 75th birthday today. Here's a free sample: https://www.youtu...Gjt291COa0 Smile

Exactly. It's as if a circle has finally closed with geometrical precision. I love the fact that the songs just try to sound like ABBA in 2021 and (i) not like ABBA in 1978 or (ii) like anyone else in 2021. I've pre-ordered the album, of course. (I don't mean The Album, obvs.)

Giving Nursery Cryme a spin while reading an accompanying article about early Genesis in Prog magazine. The piece highlights that, at Trident Studios in Soho in Aug '71, Bowie was working on Hunky Dory, Elton was working on Madman Across the Water and Genesis were working on NC. That is RIDICULOUS! To quote the article, "That's 'Changes', 'Tiny Dancer' and 'The Musical Box' - all in the same studio in the same month".

Also been watching some 'reaction videos' on YouTube looking at the new ABBA songs. Highly entertaining!

Don't freak me out! Just bought that magazine myself. Also nice piece about Caravan in it....

Crikey - I bet they can't believe they've sold TWO copies.

Abacab, the album which let the world know Genesis were and are capable of pop hits as well as progressive rock composition, to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Personal highlights include the title track, "No Reply At All", the "Dodo/Lurker" suite, "Man on the Corner" and even the controversial "Whodunnit?". Smile

NOT Whodunnit!

Sorry - 'Whodunnit' is a shocker. Sounds like Thomas Dolby on a bad day. Surely Duke is the album where they first really dovetailed pop and prog? You could even make a case for And Then There Were Three.... Although it definitely has its moments, Abacab is one of three Genesis studio albums I've never owned.

Am currently listening to a lot of old Strawbs stuff. Hero and Heroine is a forgotten rock-folk-prog masterpiece.
