Like overcast and clean
I gotta motor felt the wheel
Real fashion peel.
Try jacking blacken for more
Handcuff for special keys
Tribblize and neck down divide
This'll be his size."

I strongly suggest starting with her first album, unless you just want the singles, in which case The Immaculate Collection is great and covers everything up to 1990.

Yes that 1st album looks good with the songs Lucky Star, Borderline and Holiday - remember those quite well.
Her first 4 albums would seem to contain many familiar songs and I imagine I would probably enjoy them.
The Immaculate Collection looks good but I have found that I usually end up branching out and buying full albums from Artists I like at a later date - There's a box-set which is quite cheap, but I suspect it could be too much (as I'm not sure I want to listen to her later stuff..).
So I will give my next move some more thought.. :)

Now playing:



Smashing Pumpkins - Monuments To An Elegy

The SP's last released album - It's not very long but I think it's pretty good!.
This album is part of their "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope" project which also includes the EP's Songs For A Sailor and The Solstice Bare as well as the album Oceania. Apparently there will be another full album to conclude TBK at a later date..

King Crimson
Live in Toronto
(Double CD, Full concert, 2015)

First impressions: excellent set and sound quality. Good to hear sax and flute back in Crimson. Still not sure of the need for 3 drummers.

Susanne Sundfr - Ten Love Songs


I've passed the honeymoon stage with this album and now I want to get married  :D

Seriously though, this album keeps growing on me more and more, somehow it's already become one of my favorite albums. Never has a bunch of love songs (or moreso, melancholy songs about love, relationships and emotional trauma) hit home so much. I don't care whether it's pop or not, it's beyond incredible to me  :-*

First time I'd heard GCs seriously bluegrass debut album. I really enjoyed it. On to his second, more Willie Nelson-ish now, from 1963:

Recent listening:



U2 - Pop

Super album (especially the tracks Discoteque, Mofo and If God Will Send His Angels) - like most U2 albums, the later half of it isn't quite as good (though it doesn't suck).
Overall one of their better efforts.



New Order - Brotherhood

Great album - the track Bizarre Love Triangle is one of my NO favorites (along with True Faith and Regret).

'My name is Luka, I live on the second floor...'

Good stuff Jeffrey - that looks like a well thought out Compilation.
I don't have a copy of the song Left Of Center, which I should, as I think it's one of her best ones - may have to look into remedying that :).
