Leonard Cohen: New Skin for the Old Ceremony





This, for me, is a great album with some fine songs on it.

Beach House - Depression Cherry
2015
Genre: Dream Pop.


Awesome album! The CD sleeve is covered with crimson velvet! Beach House is a new band for me and I discovered it watching Youtube videos by "Deep Cuts."
People who like dreamy pop music such as Sigur Rós should imho check out this band out, but be warned! This is addictive stuff!  :o
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Enya: Shepherd Moons





This is my favourite Enya album. It is the essence of her music for me.

The Beatles: The Beatles



The "White Album" used to be my favorite Beatles album, but spinning thru it nowadays, I find it has too much annoying filler, and the second LP is not up to the standards of the first. Of course there are many great songs, but this now strikes me as a step down from the perfection of Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sgt. Pepper.
