Re: What are you listening to right now?

1979, the second album by The Police. This one is all Stewart Copeland in terms of musicianship, and is proof of The Police being a(n) (artsy fartsy) punk band. The tracks on this playlist are out of order from the album, which is fun...

Sorry, only just came back on. Glad you got the download problem sorted though. I think I have similar issues with my FF privacy settings or add-ons with the download refusing to start, but if I fire up gnome-web (epiphany) and load the page, downloads work fine. Dunno, maybe it's part of Goolag's evil master plan for webkit/blink everywhere or something.

On topic; ZOMG, 2020 remaster!!

Re: What are you listening to right now?

The third album by The Police, and IMO their last really great one, a few later singles aside. So, three great debut albums before it all goes to crap.

Sting comes into his own, with great lyrics that have content and a timeless relevance. Driven To Tears is one of the greatest recordings ever. Released in July of 1980. Again, out of order because free Internet music...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

And it goes to crap with Ghost In The Machine (1981). Yes, there are some brilliant tracks on this record. But there are some awful tracks on this record. If you want to play Demolition Man, please play the Grace Jones version with Sly and Robbie that came out before Ghost because Sting gave it to Grace first, I assume because he thought it was shite.

Damn, that track is savage. Re-listening to GITM, it is sounding better and better. An album ahead of its time.

Not as good as Grace Jones' Nightclubbing from 1981, though. Not even close...

^As a musician, I can say that it is very important that you lift your elbow when tweaking a knob. How else will the audience know that you're, raises elbow, doing sound things?!?

Re: What are you listening to right now?

I would love to have this with better fidelity. This and Switched On Bach by Walter Carlos, which you can't even find online, are two of the most important albums in modern music.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

BTW, synthesized Wachet Auf on the album Switched on Bach, sampled in that clip at about 24 minutes and twenty four seconds. Amazing. Blew my four or five or six or seven or eight year old mind away. Poof. No mind. Braveheart Goes To Japan (name the movie).

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Poème électronique. Edgar Varèse. 1958. The birth of modern recorded music. It makes The White Album by The Beatles sound... quaint?
