Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool.

What an amazing album!... its stunning, and quite simply one of the most beautiful collection of songs I've ever heard.

This is a contender for my favorite album ever.

I don't judge your musical taste and I've also read a good review, but let's make a deal: tell me if you still feel this way next year :wink:
Serious: the label of "favorite album ever" within a week doesn't seem realistic to me.
I haven't heard the album yet, but I guess I'll wait for the deluxe edition later this year.

I know- I know... it is jumping the gun a bit, but sometimes you just know when something is right. I must have played it twenty times by now, and each time it gives me the chills... it just connects with my soul and that's not going to change. It was the same with Manafon, SOE and LS...... and Rick Astley :lol:

I am looking forward to my special edition, its just a pity we have to wait until September for it... I have the 16bit WAV files but I'll probably get the CD next month, as I want some artwork and the liner notes.

Just look at the studio they recorded it in 8) http://www.studioslafabrique.com/Introduction.html

A national newspaper in the Netherlands had another 5 star review, so you're not alone ;-)

I'm pretty sure Bowie's Blackstar will win this award (or it should).

Have heard good things about the Radiohead album though...I have never really been a fan, but I plan to give it a listen.

Friend of mine has tried for years to turn me on to them...something about the singer's voice that just doesn't get it for me. He says that's sacrilegious and that his voice is viewed by most as an amazing instrument and important aspect of Radiohead's sound. To me he sounds a bit off key half and wobbly half the time...but to many Sylvian's voice is overly mannered and over the top..so to each his own.

I'm not a real fan either, although I admire OK Computer and a few other songs.

Funny thing is that I like the music of the band of Tom Yorke's brother, Andy, called The Unbelievable Truth, a lot more. They made two wonderful albums plus a great compilation-double disc with live recordings, b-sides, etc. Andy's solo-album is good too, while Nigel Powell (multi-instrumentalist/producer) has a fine band too, The Sad Song Co.

Lou Rhodes Theyesandeye An amazing new LP from Lambs singer....

I'm also addicted to listening to (well, watching) Grimes Glasto 2016 set.... its weird, as this is helium bubblegum pop, but its like a drug I can't get enough of ... there is something very sexy about it/her :oops:

And.... A Moon Shaped Pool continues to figure large in my life.... amazing LP.

And.... Van Morrison Astral Weeks.... What an LP!!!!!

That's quite a set :shock:

I might get the half speed mastered vinyl LP of NGD on its own... some of these box sets look amazing and are very tempting, but I'd probably not play all the alternate mixes and variations etc. so it would be largely wasted on me.

Lots of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.... together and solo. Lots of Pink Floyd and David Gilmour... and my love affair with A Moon Shaped Pool continues.

Earlier... Joni Mitchell - For The Roses.

Now... Lou Rhodes - Beloved One. The opening track "Each Moment New" is simply stunning! 8)
