    Have you heard Michael Jackson’s new song he’s doing? He’s teamed up with West Ham football team, apparently. Yeah. Doing ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles.’







    She doesn't know about football.

    I bloody love football

    We're both good in our own fields. I'm sure Texas couldn't run and manage a successful paper merchants. I couldn't do what-, well, I could do what they do, and I think they knew that, even back then. Probably what spurred them on.

    I want to add another 20+ that I have already thought of from various genres as I write this but I won't bore people beyond this as my list is already far too long and is becoming disingenuous :lol:

    What are your favourite full albums? Sometimes there are songs that you love and artists obviously but do you ever get it when a whole album resonates with you and you can just play the whole thing through. I particularly like it when the end of songs lead into the intro of the next song.

    Here's a very random selection of albums that I've particularly loved over the past decade or so. Please allow that some of them are from my emo teenage years but I still have a soft spot.

    Colour it in- The Maccabees
    The Suburbs- Arcade Fire (amazing concept album)
    XX- the XX
    A Fever you can't sweat out- Panic! At the disco
    Red- T.Swift
    Let Go- Avril Lavigne
    Fallen- Evanescence
    Infinity on High- Fall Out Boy
    Future Sex Love Sounds- JT
    Shock Value- Timbaland
    King of Limbs- Radiohead
    Only by the night- Kings of Leon


    Tbf this is a pretty juvenile selection but I think it's because it's from back in the days where I bought album CDs for my car etc. Whereas now I just listen to Spotify playlists or download individual songs on the Internet.

    Anyone got any full albums they love? Especially concept albums :yep:

    Tagging some peep I've discussed musak with recently.
    I wrote my list before I even read the OP. Snap on a few of these - I love Toothpaste Kisses.

    Yeah, I saw them perform in Manchester a few years back. Second best performance I've ever seen, but then no one competes with Muse live

    I read your response thinking that- that you hadn't read it- because the three that we chose that matched are kind of obscure. I love Toothpaste Kisses as well as First Love- are you cooool? criticool, politicool, analyticool. Great from them. Also love OA V.I.P -great album to run to :yep:

    Also :five: on the Evanescence front- I nearly didn't own up to it but WTF that album is top notch.

    Fair, I shall allow that, the bottom 3 make obvious sense to me but I was just trying to pick your brains on how you categorised.

    I get all this, “Ooh, David, you’re a brilliant singer-songwriter, you’re in Slough, while it’s Texas that’re off making all the money…and they’re rubbish compared to you.”

    And I go, “Don’t **** them off.” I say, “I’ve been there, I’ve done that, you know. That’s behind me”

    Aye. I was surprised to see someone else choose The Maccabees, but less so Evanescence. I am interested to see if anyone else admits to having liked WTTBP - MCR.

    One must acknowledge even the most shameful aspects of one's character

    I have already thought of several more I'm annoyed I didn't include but I'm going to commit to not changing the list.

    I've seen the Green Day musical, and even though in and of itself it was poor, the album is so good that it carried the show. American Idiot - so good.

    What is your fave song? I love VCR, fiction, and shelter. I particularly love the bit in shelter where it says:

    'And I'll cross oceans, like never before, so you can feel the way I feel it too.
    And ill mirror images, back at you, to you can see, the way I see it too'
