A bit of sting in there, i see , i like the symphonicities album ,pirates bride especially.

I was thinkin this could be a really interesting thread, we could include things like circumstances we are listening in (on a train, on a long car journey or late at night alone, ect) .I wonder how our habits difer. I tend to listen to paticular artists a lot for a while then move on, looks like baht is of a similar persuation

Quite a nice mix there, i can imagine you listening to 'sacred love' watching the waves lap against the shore,It's a good album. The Dominic Miller (sting's guitarist i presume), is it good ,i might try and get a copy.
