1. Liz Phair - Liz Phair: Some quite good tracks but the lyrics and track titles suggest that she is in desperate need of a shag !
2. Avril Lavigne - Avril Lavigne: Again a couple of good catchy tunes. Some utter dross though !
3. Train - My Private Nation - Two bearable tracks, but the rest is utter shite !
4. Matchbox 20: More Than You Think You Are: A couple of good tracks but the rest is heavy shite.
5. John Mayer - Heavier Things: Really like this as background music - a la David Gray. First two tracks are shit hot.

Couldn't find anything else in the sodding club worth trying ! But it made me appreciate how good Norfolk Coast really is !!

Good job they were free eh Paul ???

Ok...so i guess you now regret the looming prospect ten years of a "chart" CD being posted to you every month..for your consideration...err that would be purchase...unless you manage to send them back to the secret address in a special box within 45 seconds of their arrival. :laugh:

Nah, will get my other free cds, introduce the wife to the club (to get me some more free and her some free) then cancel my membership. She'll then invite me to join to get some more free then she'll cancel etc etc.

Just have to be careful that you go for the 'nothing else to buy ever option and get out within a month or two. Did it when I lived in the US before and got about 200 cds for nowt !

P.S. You have to remember its that smaller brain thing ! :D

It's OK, but Mezzanine is far superior. 100th Window is more of an epic, but less 'chilled'.

Very rare session between Hugh and JJ when they met briefly a few years back. Gonna have to destroy it after I hear it unfortunately.
