Camera Obscura: Desire Lines





This album has a very good and quite a different sound for me. It is very smooth and polished. I found it to be quite interesting. It is my first time to hear it.

I love that band! Underachievers Please Try Harder is my favorite album of theirs.

OK, that is interesting. I have only heard Desire Lines. I should therefore explore this band further.

Heh. Underachievers.

Love Camera Obscura. My Maudlin Career would be my favorite. It was also the album they were touring when I saw them, which was a great show.

Yes, aligreto, the correct title is Underachievers Please Try Harder.

Thank you also for that recommendation.

Bowie: Outside





I like Bowie for the most part and I enjoyed listening to most of this album. I found Bowie to be in a somewhat contemplative mood here. It was an interesting listen for one who grew up in the Ziggy era.

I also really like the cover artwork.

Johnny Cash: A Hundred Highways





There are twelve songs on this album and two of them are written by Cash himself. I liked his voice on this one. It was still strong enough with his distinctive sound but he did sound somewhat vulnerable even on the upbeat songs. The backing musicians are excellent and so is the production and the overall sound of the album.

Lou Reed: Mistrial





Interestingly, compared with other albums that I have heard, I liked this one and I would have no problem with listening to it again.
