This one keeps getting recommended to me on amazon - maybe one day I will see whats its like.

Tonight's listening:



The Stevie Nicks led Fleetwood Mac song "Seven Wonders" (from the album "Tango in The Night") is my favourite piece of music at the moment but for some variety I thought I would listen to a different album (the self-titled one above) - this is certainly very nice too.

Love that FM album. The only FM album I like more is Rumours. And it's close.

Rumours is brilliant for sure! What do you think of Tango In The Night George? (I cant stop listening to the song "Seven Wonders" at the moment!).

I enjoy Tango, but like Mirage and Tusk before it, I find it uneven. It's also the last FM album I have, chronologically, though I do have Stevie's first two solo albums.

Thanks George - Tango is the last one I have too (I only have 4 at the moment starting with the self-titled).
I may need to pick up Mirage at some point so I have a chronological run of albums - I was talking about FM to one of my friends at work and she mentioned liking a song which I don't have (and I have a feeling it might be on Mirage).
Might have to check out some solo Stevie Nicks at some point too - I will youtube some of her songs from the albums you own tomorrow (ahh what a voice she has!) :).

Now playing:



Received this album in the post yesterday and have listened to it a couple of times - Some good songs (Babooshka, Army Dreamers and Breathing are some of her most popular). There's a song called "Delius" which appears to be a homage to the famous composer.

ELO's most successful album commercially and I think its easily one of their best too - Can listen to this one all the way through without skipping tracks. A flawless album imo :).

This album means so much to me, gosh how I love new age music  :'( :'( :'(





No, I'm not crying, in space nobody can hear you cry

New Age music, eh? I’m not an Enja fan, but I do like a lot of the so-called “New Age” music on the defunct Windham Hill label. Check out this piece by Will Ackerman:

I'll check those out later

You should check out Kitaro or Emerald Web  :)

You've probably already heard Jean michel jarre and Vangelis

Yes to all of the above. Heard them all. I do like some Vangelis. In all honesty, I prefer the more acoustic side of “New Age” music like Will Ackerman, Michael Hedges, Alex de Grassi, among others.

Not really my bag, but a cool nostalgia trip all the same.

I can't help it, I'm playing it again this morning now. I'll be binging off it for a while. They're such a great band, mean a lot to me  :D :D :D :D

Mayor of Simpleton is one of the greatest love songs.

Someone only recently introduced me to the band Primus. I have been watching a few YT videos....

Ok this is incredibly coincidental but i'm listening to this:






 :o

I'm not the only Cardiacs nut on the forum! Hurrah! ;D

What an album Sing To God is. I think I'm right in saying that Bill Drake named it as his favourite, even though he's not on it.
