I'm curious WSS, what stereo, vinyl player & speakers are you using? I've inherited my sister's old record player, it's probably 15 years old or so alltogether though I've used it for about three. It's a Dual 505-2. I'm thinking of buying something new though because it appears to be dying on me...

The last batch of cd's I bought were all from the 60's as I havn't listened all that much to music from that time. I finally got around to getting Pet Sounds and also The Kinks' Arthur, The Doors' debut, Pink Floyd's Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (though I knew that one from before) and the first album...

White Album, and loving it. I've had it for a few months but I buy records at a faster rate than I listen to them ;) . Definetley my favourite of theirs so far. The Barbershop Quartet-Simpsons episode got even better. I only figured Barney getting a japanese girlfriend and recording something bizzar...

http://static.rateyourmusic.com/album_images/s1731.jpg Didn't care for it much at first but it's growing on me. I've heard five of Steely Dan's albums now and they're a current favourite of mine. Countdown To Ecstacy and Katy Lied are must haves. Aja comes in third. I like Pretzel Logic and The Roy...

I also ordered the box. I've yet to listen to the album more than once though. Nice first listen.

I finally went ahead and got a Midnight Oil album (I asked about them on here a long time ago). http://static.rateyourmusic.com/album_images/s2260.jpg It was only £1.50 and after several listens I'm glad to find out I got a great bargain :D. The production is great! It's quirky but in a good way. M...

http://static.rateyourmusic.com/album_images/s1727.jpg As Mr.Average promised, it's a great listen. Not sure yet if I like it better than Katy Lied, but it's equally good for sure. I recently got that album as well as Pretzel Logic, The Royal Scam and Aja all together for just a tad more than the p...

I now own Blue, Court And Spark, Hissing and Hejira and Hissing is still my favourite followed by Court and then either Hejira or Blue, all great albums either way.

I guess I should check out Ladies of the Canyon, For The Roses and Don's. How's Mingus?

Chad Smith seemed fairly enthustiastic I must admit, but the sound was so bad it didn't help much. Plus he wore a disgusting red overall ;)

I've returned from the mudpits of Roskilde. I had a great time despite the horrible rains on Thursday. Here's what I saw: Thursday: Arcade Fire - Excellent LCD Soundsystem - Great Björk - Great Friday: Camera Obscura - Great (adorable band!) Roky Erickson & The Explosives - Great Boris - Shit B...

I agree with martinfoyle about the album. I particularly dislike EC's annoyingly loud voice. It stands out from the music in a bad way. But overall yeah I guess I like the new album. Nice bunch of songs.

Agh! The schedule's been presented. Tight as I feared, but possible. Day 1: Tight spot: Arcade's playing the arena at 18.00. Problem is, LCD plays another arena one hour and 30 minutes later. I'll probably miss the start of LCD, but hopefully not much. The arena is the one furthest away from the ode...

I'm open to most music. I do like Camera Obscura. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have considered seeing them ;). Really like their latest album, havn't heard the others so I'm hoping they'll stick to that one mostly :P. Thank you all for your suggestions so far, I'll keep them in mind as long as noon...

http://www.roskilde-festival.dk/object.php?obj=823000c&code=1 Help me out folks! I'm seeing Arcade Fire for sure, most likely Arctic Monkeys, Björk, LCD Soundsystem and Camera Obscura. Probably Muse and Beastie Boys. But aside from those I'm not really sure what might be worth looking at. Last ...
