Re: Trust Survivor - Round 9

Not happy about this result. Strict Time is such an incredible rhythmic/melodic tumbling ride through the hills on an out of control train. Watch Your Step is fantastic but it doesn't thrill like Strict Time. That song continues the shocking violence featured on the album - 'broken noses hung up on...

What offends me secondly in this truly criminal activity, after the theft of EC music FOR MAJOR PROFIT is this.

Re: New song ‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’, July 10, 2020

I agree, Verbal. I've had a couple of listens and there's a chaotic, crockery-set-in-a-box-tumbling-down-the-stairs vibe that I can't get into - and the verbosity bothers me too. The hook line doesn't quite sit for me. That said it's definitely interesting new work and I'll give it some more spins!...

This is a difficult one because it’s such a good album. No surprise with Sunday’s Best though. I find it funny that loads of people think it's the worst - imagine people voting off "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite " from Sgt. Pepper over say "Fixing a Hole". To me it's a subli...

Re: Shoes without heels

Elvis has always shunned the idea of a double album except in recent times when vinyl issues have had four sides with three or four songs on each side. KOA could have been mind-blowingly brilliant with those songs included as well as the mighty Eisenhower Blues in a full 7 minute rendition ! :wink:
