duran duran: big thing. this isn't even my favourite of theirs but it is their most underrated, it's their pop, if you will (without it being rushed and all that). it sounds nothing like anything they'd done before or have done since and is just divine. in fact really even the hits off that album ("i don't want your love" and "all she wants is") really show what the album sounds like. their lesser hit "do you believe in shame" gives you a good idea though. but single didn't do so well, although many peeps who keep track of chart listings and sales records would tell you it was because of many reasons i won't go into.

anyway, you should really give it a listen. some of it sounds kinda 60s, a lot of it is more electronic late 80s music. a lot of my top 20 songs come off of big thing. the album cover is atrocious and the first track is joke (literally), but once you get past that you'll fall in love.

If you've seen them live then I'm sure you've been even more engrossed out.



Very interesting album.

Ben Folds - Rockin the Suburbs

One of my favorite albums. Ben Folds is quickly becoming my favorite songwriter. He has such a great sensibility, with the ability to be funny and yet deeply touching in the same song. There isn't a bad song on the album.

Crowded House - Together Alone (1994)

A natural fit for fans of (good, pre-2000) U2, the last studio album from New Zealand's finest is pure pop/rock poetry in the mold of the Beatles & U2. Neil Finn is at his zenith as a songwriter (and that's saying something) on this slightly dark, atmospheric album that is outstanding start to finish. Highlights include the chilling Private Universe, the acoustic Catherine Wheels and the obvious would-be radio hit Distant Sun (a mild single success in Europe/Australia). Check out Amazon reviews which will support my premise. HIGHLY recommended, a lost treasure that rightly deserves company with peers Achtung Baby and Automatic for the People.

My friend, this is a solid album. I saw Josh play a couple months ago however and I must say it ruined alot of it. It was just bad, I mean, adult contemporary bad. Under Cold Blue Stars is still brilliant though....

yeah, I still like it, but there are some weak lyrics on a few tunes, overall though, good album. I still say under cold blue stars is better however.

The Bigger Lovers-This Affair Never Happened

Unique music to me. Great guitars and cool vocals! Songs that get me wild are ,"You Don't Fell Anything At All." With the lyrics, "Your eyes closed, You know you look so unposed, You don't feel anything at all." I just love it! And lyrics to touch you and rhythm that produce poems in your head!

I've been listening to the new White Stripes constantly (Get Behind Me Satan). As an album, it's a little uneven, but as a collection of songs, it really is inventive, thought-provoking, and mature. "Forever for Her (Is Over for Me)" is another entry into the Totally Sexy Songs by Jack White catalog; fans of Meg White's vocals (yes, all three of us, probably) get the weird little "Passive Manipulation"; fans of the ever-present creepy element of the Stripes' work will like "White Moon" and "Take, Take, Take"; and anyone who enjoyed Jack's collaboration with Loretta Lynn will enjoy "I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)."

If you only buy one CD from the first half of 2005, make it that one. As Rob Sheffield commented, "If you happen to be in an American rock band, and you don't happen to be one of the White Stripes, it sucks so much to be you right now."
