  1. The 2018 Music Thread

    It’s good, but I can’t help being disappointed. You know, I’d been curious about that recording for years, so I can’t help feeling a bit let down. Which is perverse, because I don’t particularly like the Sinead O’C version or the live version. But at the same time I felt it had the potential to be something I’d really love. I know that’s silly, but there you go.
  2. Avicii, EDM DJ, Dead at 28

    Ah, the only tune I knowingly associated with Avicii was Wake Me Up, which I must admit I didn't particularly like. But now I've found out he did that Levels one. That's a good wee tune. No doubt there are other songs he did that I'll recognise but never realised he actually did them.

  4. What bands do you hate?

    There’s plenty of good pop in the charts these days. I don’t actively look for it but apple music throws some good stuff at me on my weekly new music playlist. The ones you highlighted are shit though. Esp Sam Smith
  5. Random Music Thoughts

    Matt Bellers sounding a bit like the Tasmanian devil when he sings there. Very spitty.
  6. Civilization Thread!

    Fuck sake, nobody told me all the narrators in this game would be from Yorkshire. I can't deal with this.

  9. Best Music Streaming Services?

    I use Apple Music because I had all my music on iTunes and it was the best option for allowing me to integrate my own music and the music I stream. That special consideration aside, it doesn't really matter, does it? They all have broadly the same library, they all come up with dubious recommendations based on your previous listening and they all provide a "community" aspect that no right-thinking individual gives a toss about, They all have fairly dubious tax arrangements, they all screw the musicians. I guess it really just comes down to whichever logo you prefer or skin you like.
  10. Civilization Thread!

    I have Civ V and all the expansions. Is this game at a point where I should be getting it yet? Would I lose anything?
  11. Vince McMahon to relaunch the XFL

    Disappointed this wasn't an announcement for the Xtreme Cricket League
  12. Mark E. Smith passes away

    When I worked at HMV we used to put Eat Y'Self Fitter on five minutes before closing time to scare the customers away so we could all get home on time. I owe him so much for that. I like the Infotainment Scan too. Would recommend that to someone new to their music too - I've always found that to be their most accessible one, I made the mistake of making Imperial Wax Solvent my first Fall meeting and it took me quite a while to get over that.

    It's definitely driving here!
