Another 80's album that is on the TOP of my all time faves is DARE by the Human League
From the start with 'The things that dreams are made of' till last and best known track 'Don't you want me'....that album is a real journey of sounds and spheres
Special mention of the track 'The sound of the crowd' which to me is one of the biggest gems on the album...a hypnotic track to me to which I can listen all day long in repeat and still trip on it
As much as I love Dare, the songs have been a bit overplayed by me over the years, have listened to those songs over and over. The instrumental counterpiece Love and Dancing is a nice guilty pleasure as well.
However, 2001’s Secrets is my all time favourite HL album. If you’re not familiar with it, give it a listen. It has also been released on vinyl with bonus remixes.
Yes I know. It has cobwebs - We have the moderators permission for this thread. Not sure if you saw but it all began as a joke 😁
Yes I noticed they changed the whole board name to Skinburns Billy No Mates board or something. Those pranksters!
I posted a few threads in off-topic - which got a lot of views, because its so empty it means the top topics stays listed on the home page for ages.
No shame in this thread, let the good times roll.
Yes, for 24 hours. I’m honoured!
I run out of DD stuff to say. I preferred pre internet when somebody would just start a whisper and it would develop into the Gods honest truth - 🤔. The fanzine used to be packed with idle gossip!! Lol
The thread can have anything music related - just no DD... and certainly no politics!
I am kind of surprised that Duran Duran did not mention anything about the sudden passing of Tony Lewis lead singer of The Outfield on Monday. I thought for sure they would say something about it since he was a fellow British artist. My favorite groups from the UK are Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, Simple Minds, and The Outfield.
My most recent acquisition is U2’s 10th outing from the year 2000, ‘All that you can’t leave behind’.
I opted for the CD boxset as it is considerably cheaper than the vinyl edition and the fact there is no difference at all with audio content. It also happens to be an LP size so the detail is much clearer. For me it was U2’s second from last great album, containing gems such as ‘Beautiful Day’. Additionally the track ‘Walk On’ became synonymous with 9/11 as people could relate to it.
As well as live discs, mixes and demos, there is a magnificent travelogue hard back book that showcases Anton Corbijn’s photo shoot for the album. The main cover artwork was taken in a sparse Charles De Gaulle airport in France. Apparently it wasn't planned for the album but it was just one of those things that turned out to be a good idea! I just love it and couldn’t resist it!
I would have liked 5.1 and Blu-ray but I expect they’ll be saving that for the 30th anniversary!
