What's The Frequency, Kenneth is a fucking amazing song, easily one of my favourite REM tracks. Monster's second half also seems pretty good. I like a lot of the distorted guitar on that album.

Actually, last night I cranked up Way Out Of Here by PT. That's fast becoming one of my favs.

Today I cranked up Woods Of Ypres - Shedding The Dead Wood. I adore that song.

Imitation Of Life was a big single here, though if I remember correctly, it fell rather flat on the charts over your way.
Imitation of Life is a fucking awesome song. I got it on single just in case there was a few different versions which would allow me to enjoy it in a few subtley different ways.

Imitation of Life came out when I was really into music videos, and by far, that was one of the coolest videos out there at the time, aided by what I think is a FANTASTIC song.
I'm not sure I ever saw the movie ...

... nor the music video, heh. But I do like Imitation Of Life. Most of the other songs on the album it's from are dodgy as hell, but it's good.

What's The Frequency on good headphones is possibly better than sex. Well, sex when it's fucking cold, or something, anyway. Brilliant song. See, you're halfway there, grasshopper. Get Monster. Your ears will thank you.

WOOH is probably my second favourite track on FOABP. Anesthetize is, of course, my favourite. The middle section of that at the Brisbane gig is easily one of the most intense, best concert moments I've ever experienced in my life. Just about headbanged my entire fucking skull off.

And yeah, that's a quality Woods Of Ypres track. Hell, the entire album it's from is amazingly solid. I love how frequently they use clean vocals.

What's going on now, hey?
We have simultaneous conversations about REM and metal. Now there's a combination for you!

Is it you, Ax, who is getting into REM? I forget now who said it. I've just been harping at you to get into them without double checking that I'm not preaching to the converted.

Man, I am excited for the end of the year:

U2 in November

*Ignore this Axver* supposedly new Killers next month

My friend and I's mutually favorite band has a new album coming out soon, which means she and I can finally go to a concert together (this is the ONLY band we have in common, so we never go to concerts together (the band is Our Lady Peace btw) )

And Peter Gabriel is getting closer to finally putting out a new album.

Ashley's getting into them, and you're preaching to the converted who needs to hurry the fuck up and get the band's entire discography. I have MOST of it, but there's a few gaps.

I fucking adore eighties REM. Murmur, Reckoning, Fables, Document, Life's Rich Pageant, Green ...

So I haven't heard anything that's blown me away on this since "Try Not To Breath" (I've never been a big fan of Everybody Hurts) but I'm liking "Monty Got A Raw Deal".


Peter Gabriel did a song on the Wall*E soundtrack?!
