I’m afraid my album tastes are stuck in the late 80s and early 90s. Which albums should I listen to? Anything considered. No need to recommend anything by The Who / Led Zep / Talking Heads either. Go.

The Cult, start with Pure Cult (Best of) and if you like that move onto specific albums. Love, Electric, Sonic Temple - more recent stuff a bit meh! and I'm a huge fan.

Mate, I owned all of those on vinyl Smile She Sells Sanctury was one of the first guitar riffs I learnt! Very Happy

Gingerbongo; brilliant. Have not heard of any of them. Will start going through them. Very Happy

Röyksopp. But be cautious, I wake up in the middle of the night because my brain is still singing their stuff. These two are especially bad...

What Else Is There?

Oh yes! I had an epiphone copy in my late teens. 👍 Never saw them live, although I think the’re still touring.

Gus, give me a Rush album to get started with.

Tractor
There's only really one album (1972). Start with Little Girl in Yellow as a taster.

I was in our local Tesco today and noticed they've suddenly got a vinyl section amongst the CD's.

Quite small, but it included:

Bat out of Hell
Dark Side of the Moon
Queen Greatest Hits

plus a few other 'classics'...

Spent a few happy minutes browsing like in the old days. Seemed strange yet bizarrely comforting to see which songs were on Side 1 and Side 2 - and 'double albums' etc... just like in the old days.

How bizarre vinyl is becoming mainstream again...

Gonna completely get shot down here .....but........
I was in the pain cave today pushing out some sweet spot reps when my playlist shuffled to ‘Our Lips are Sealed’ by The Go Go’s gave me a total lift.
Heavy stuff is out going for some Altered Images tomorrow and possibly T’Pau.

I generally prefer eclectic music, rather than certain albums/bands. Most bands seem to produce pretty samey music imho.

Why not throw some 'Hives' in there though. In particular I like the track 'Die Alright!"

So I've started my new musical 'journey'; is there a facebook group for that? Wink

Listened to Gingerbongo's recommendation of Oh Wonder. Definitely a Sunday morning kind of album. Will be giving Gus's Rush recommendation a go next.
