I’ve been waiting for this … (not in a creepy way)
That makes me a bit sad. Even older albums? Fair enough about Lightning Bolt, cos, well, yawnish, but other recent PJ albums have been worthwhile. So it SP if you discount Teargarden etc, etc. Now I want to send you a mixtape to remind you.
Finally people giving some love to Elbow’s album, which is an amazing album and deserves more attention in end-of-year lists
Cheers for posting that. Just the other day I was wondering how he was going and couldn’t remember what his blog was called.
I listened to Songs From A Blue Guitar today. And I found it hard to enjoy, because I just kept thinking, but he’s a tool.
I got this album at the same time as my first CD player – a mini hi-fi (and the Black album as well, same day) for my birthday. It had been out for a year already by then but I had listened to it compulsively thanks to friends.
I still remember putting this on for the first time, and pouring obsessively over the booklet.
One of my top ten albums. I just love it, so much.
He clearly hasn’t seen it yet, or he’d be all over this page.
Oh wow. Braaaaaave. Now the next three hours is set.
I liked some of the Teargarden stuff too, but it really annoyed me how upfront his vocals were.
Agreed. I don’t see how someone going country to country-pop to straight-out pop is particularly influential. Shania Twain, anyone?
