I understand that if PL&U wins, the runner-up will also be included in the final Survivor?

Good. Now we're down to This Year's Model proper. :P I'm amazed how far Lip Service has gone, and still shocked that Lipstick Vogue is already out.

Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

It reminds me how I re-discovered and grew to love WIWC three years after its release. It even made me create a thread about it. You can find it here:

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 15 - Final Round

That was fun. Many thanks to kosi. The reactions to the poll have proved that as much as we all love Get Happy!!, we quite often differ considerably with regards to our favourite tracks. Quite frankly, I would never expect some of the songs (no titles, not to stir more controversy) to bo so dear to ...

Re: Get Happy!! Survivor - Round 2

I understand what you say, guys, but 90% of Get Happy!! songs are insanely good (the other 10% being just VERY good). For me it was a choice between B&W World, Beaten to The Punch, Human Touch, and Love For Tender. Black & White World is a very good song, but I'm pretty sure it will go out i...

Enjoying a new album from the Chills, their first in almost 20 years.
Bouncing melodies, fine arrangements, engaged lyrics - all in all, a great return.

On top of it, my wife is a huge James' fan and she plays La Petite Mort at least a few times a week, so I've grown to love it. :-) Jack, eagerly looking forw...

2014 Favourite Albums

Hi there, I would love to hear what fellow EC fans regard as the best music of 2014. I am looking at my list and I have to say I might be slowly turning into an old prick. :) With one exception, all of the artists have been around for more than 10 years (one, sadly, not with us any more).

Enjoying the new album from Ben Watt (probably better known as being one half of the duo Everything but the Girl). The album's called Hendra, and it's an excellent collection of quiet (mostly), intimate, contemplative songs. Give it a try. And here is the live version of the title track. Ben Watt wi...

Some brilliant games like Germany-Ghana or yesterday's USA vs Portugal (have no idea why the ref added 5 minutes).

The whole set was masterfully paced and played, but if I had to choose highlights, I'd go for Bloodbuzz O...
