Re: Favourite track on The Gospel According To The Meninblac

I like the dark and brooding 'Manna Machine.'

It's the type of song and sound I expected to hear more of after 'In the Shadows' appeared as the B side to NMH.

Re: Top albums of 2015

'Alone in the Universe' by ELO is my top album of 2015. Glad to see Jeff Lynne getting some well deserved respect for his music. Bands like ELO were blown away a bit by Punk but I always liked both. Would like to have seen them live this year but ticket prices even exceeded Liverpool F.C.'s proposed...

Re: "Adele" who likes her? If anyone?

It seems the answer to the original thread title is...pretty much everybody.

I'm not surprised. If you like The Stranglers there's a fair chance you think for yourself and like what you like without outside influences dictating what you should think.

Re: Maradona good, Pele better, George Best.

Great as George was, in footballing ability he comes behind Pele, Maradona and Cruyff.

Re: Last book read

I see there's going to be a tv adaptation of War and Peace in 2016. What's the likelihood that Pierre will be, "A massive, fat young man with a cropped head, in spectacles," as he's described by Tolstoy. And, to Porkymeat, and to echo Bag Lady, how can you post on an internet forum and not observe t...

Re: Last book read

Abandoned War and Peace after 800 pages. The translation I was reading had some bewildering dialogue. I guess I'd have to learn Russian to fully appreciate it. That must have been about two thirds of the way through? I've only managed 300 pages <hangs head in shame> I gave up because it felt like a...
