Whenever I hear Adele's Skyfall on the TV or radio, I feel the urge to play Muse's Supremacy. Whilst the Adele track is a pretty good Bond theme, I think that the Muse track would've been a far better choice. smiley


I like that song a little bit, but the way his voice goes all high, slightly similar to the style in Micro Cuts... it's kind of off-putting. At one point I'm going to play The 2nd Law again and try to get back into it. I don't hate it, I just have this strange spite for it, because at first, I accepted the music as "not bad", fearing it wouldn't be very good because of the dubstep rumours. And now, having got into their heavier stuff (and because The Resistance is absolutely monumental) I really T2L had been better instead of merely "not bad".

Speaking of Muse, yesterday I found out that I've been pronouncing the song name Megalomania wrong. I always pronounced it meg-AL-o-MAY-nee-uh, but the correct pronunciation is MEG-luh-MAY-nee-uh. Yet another thing I have to adjust my pronunciation for... rolleyes tongue Great song anyway. Church organs can be really cool when used at the right time.

Porcupine Tree's Halo and the long intro to The Cure's Fascination Street would go together excellently as a song mashup! When done right, song mashups can be epic. cool

I think that Matt's vocal performance on Supremacy is amazing. As you know, I am not so keen on his vocals on Micro Cuts. I have a live version of Megalomania from The Royal Albert Hall where Matt plays it on the beast, i.e. The Royal Albert Hall's organ - it is fantastic. cool

I notice that the TV channel formerly known as "ITV1" has reverted to plain old "ITV". It reminds me of the days of just 3 TV channels. grin

I am still continuing my tradition of playing Yes's Fragile and ELP's Tarkus one after the other, swapping them around each time. They complement each other perfectly in my book (both released in 1971 as well!) but according to ProgArchives, Fragile is the 13th most popular progressive rock album of all time, while Tarkus isn't even in the top 100! shocked shocked shocked It does appear in the top 100 UK prog albums however, but at no. 81 - still pretty low for such a classic! undecided

The next CD to land on my door step will be The Yes Album. And because "Y" is near the end of the alphabet, this will entail minimal disruption when it comes to keeping my collection in alphabetical/chronological order. grin wink

Looking over the last few pages of the "Recent Purchases" thread, this may be the key to why Henry is buying all those Zappa albums. smiley

It's true.

I have made room at the end of that particular storage unit to accomodate all these new purchases. cool

Every G2 thread has loads of replies apart from the High Wycombe one - the one I can make. Obviously my deodorant isn't working. sad
