    Really in love with this entire album; it's too bad that, judging from the few other albums I've heard by Venetian Snares, he doesn't really understand why Frictional Nevada is so interesting.

    Antología del Cante Flamenco


    Originally released in 1958. Various singers with Perico el del Lunar's guitar. This is passionate music.

    Catharsis: Dea & Febris Erotica.

    Russian Neoclassical Melodic Power Metal. Just started listening to this (after forgetting I'd ordered it about a month ago). No idea how all the adjectives to 'Metal' combine yet. Definitely some piano involved... Sorry for the pure link, but the album cover is NSFW.

    So, after a bit more listening I have to say I really like this. The weak link is the singer but he's not a bad Metal singer. Just an average one. The instrumental stuff is a lot of fun though.

    Hall & Oates - Abandoned Luncheonette (Atlantic)

    I grew up listening to this early H&O record. It was in my father's music collection, and it was one of his favorites. I think it's brilliant and creative, the best music they ever made -- but I'm nowhere near objective about it.

    Right with you on this one, JACE - a brilliant patchwork quilt of an album! The diversity of material was incredible (blue-eyed soul, Broadway jazz, sophisticated pop, hard rock and - yes - bluegrass) and the song-writing quality high. There were still some goodies to come but by and large I felt it all went a bit too slick and generic after this no matter how handsomely future albums paid the rent.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
