The Hurting/Songs From the Big Chair/The Seeds of Love was one of the best runs of any popular 80s band. Incredible hooks, revealing lyrics and the production still holds up to this day.

Simple Minds was really good too and I might take New Gold Dream over any Tears For Fears album. That bass tone is so, good. Never enjoyed anything else by them as much as that album, kind of lightning in a bottle for me personally, but they have a bunch of solid albums.

Guided By Voices have released 4 albums since “the virus” became a thing from late February 2020 until most recently with the release of Earth Man Blues. Oddly enough, in October of 2019 their last album before the pandemic was called “Sweating the Plague”…

So anyway, going back to the new album Earth Man Blues. It’s really good. Rolling Stone actually gave it a 4 star review and it’s the first GBV album that Pitchfork has reviewed in a long time. Pitchfork was critical but somewhat favorable.

When I first joined this forum, way back in 2005, I thought Don't Forget About Me was a U2 song.

My cousin used to think a few Tears For Fears, Simple Minds and Crowded House songs were U2 songs.

I thought you said they were U2 songs. Imagine “Tears for Fears” by U2. That name is way too slick for a U2 song. Would probably be “Tears that Fall From My Face Which Cause Me Fears”

Everything they did up to Once Upon a Time is close to essential listening, and it's impressive how much of a discography they actually amassed up to that point - very prolific. Hunter and the Hunted is the best thing they put to record (with the incredible guest Herbie Hancock synth solo).

Unbelievable lineup. Makes this year's Lollapalooza look even worse.

Are they advertising this a year in advance?

I can't even think about next summer right now.

Also, that color coding is confusing and is hurting my head.

Lollapalooza is depressingly bad. Glad Firefly has something ever so slightly more palatable.

if the rest of Sufjan's two-and-a-half-hour Convocations is as good as the very first song, Meditation I, we're gonna have a new contender to go up against Eno's work.

I haven't listened to any of these yet, need to remember to check them out.

I do think it's incredibly optimistic to assume all these live music events are going to go ahead in 2022.
