Who'd of thought it?!

Just been listening to some of Gary Numans recent work and its pretty great. Reminds alot of Massive Attack, maybe with a little nine inch nails thrown in.
Felt compelled to share the news.


See him live if you get the chance. Puts on a terrific show.

Agree 100%


D'You Know What I Mean? is still a fantastic opener. And Stand By Me is easily one of Oasis' best.


Yep plus I would actually put "It's getting better man" and "Fade In/Out" up with their very best.

The mother of all unpopular opinions is upon us...

There's a certain album that is so critically acclaimed and so astoundingly popular that any who question its greatness shall be forever cast out of society to wither and die in the most barren of deserts...

I, however, am taking this risk, and I hereby declare that on the first listen to this album, I found it markedly uninteresting and flat, particularly considering its reputation...

The album's name is... ((Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band)).

I apologize to anyone whose world is completely and utterly shaken by this declaration, but unpopular opinions are unpopular opinions.



I think the idea that Sgt. Pepper was The Beatles best album ever ever has largely been played up by the fact that Rolling Stone named it the Best Album Of All Time Ever In The Universe That Will Ever Be or something.

It is not The Beatles best album, it's not even close. It has some stunning tracks on it, namely She's Leaving Home, A Day In The Life and A Little Help From My Friends but in my humble opinion, it's all over the place. It isn't as streamlined as The Beatles albums before it were and by this point in their career I get a little tired of George sitarring it up at every opportunity (love you really George).

I'd say its their worst album.

I prefer Abbey Road and Rubber Sole massively.

Each to their own. Not in my books.

Both better than Sgt Peppers though.

The first half is a bit of a mess really, I've never got on as well with it as I know other people do. Amazing album cover though. I should also say that all the ones above it are all classic classic classics though, obviously.

I may get a some WTF's here but i've never really been fussed by the Beatles. I do like a couple or songs but i've never been inspired to listen to them properly (a big factor to this was the 'britpoppers' who were in my sixth form. they were such bell ends, putting me off even trying to listen to the fab four)

I remember liking 'helter skelter' (ok, gave that a go as it was suggested that it was the first 'grunge' song in some shitty mag), especially the part when Ringo shouts "I got blisters on my fingers"

I would say the first metal song, more than the first grunge song, though John Lennon once tried to claim Ticket to ride as the first metal song. Which it is not.

It is well worth checking them out though, they were just incredible really. Don't be put off by the bellend fans either - I got into Nirvana, Radiohead and The Smiths much later than I would have naturally for that reason.

The fact is The Beatles have many great songs and some bad ones. Who cares which album which and which are on?

Unless you're a true pioneer like Bowie, Green Day or Springsteen and are actually using the album format to tell a story with connected songs albums do not matter.

Did you just say that the only album of any worth is a concept album?

Totally agree, but i'm older and wiser now. Saying that it was my little secrect back then that i liked pulp and suede. I didn't want to give the fuckers the satisfaction, especially as all they did on a daily basis was give me a good slagging on my taste and style which i gave back as good as i got. Good times

I'll try and sit down with the fab four some night. Rack a few albums up and let it ride. What do you suggest to start on first?

The first half is the best half, to be fair. I Want You (She's So Heavy) is probably my favourite Beatles song, Here Comes The Sun, Come Together and Something are also great and Maxwell's Silver Hammer is quite a lot of fun too.

Rubber Soul and Revolver are good midway points between the experiemental later years and the pop earlier years, though if you are into heavier stuff to begin with, maybe The White Album, which houses Helter Skelter among others is the best

you're the Gimli of Audiophile though - no-one ever agrees with you  
Having said that, I like those songs, though MSH is nonsense obviously. But it is all over the place, and not always in a good way. When I'm talking about something being in the fifth or sixth best Beatles album, I am still talking about it as a classic however.

No, the best two songs on the first half are Something and Oh! Darling.

The best part of the second half is Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight.

I couldn't even begin to tell you how much I disagree with that statement so I'm not even gonna bother. But I'll keep it simple by saying that albums are just about the greatest invention ever.
Anyway, what about that Man City keeper, eh?
