I got Tori Amos's 'Abnormally Attracted To Sin', which is a bit hit and miss. If she'd spent less time putting botox in her face and concentrated on getting her songs right it might have been better. angry

What I've seen of the accompanying 'visualettes' on Youtube scream 'rip off'! 'Welcome To England' has the same patronising 'aah, aren't the English quaint with their Queen and Buck House' vibe that I get from Richard Curtis movies and the episodes of Friends with Helen Baxendale in.

The way she goes on about victimhood in 'Maybe California' would also be more suited to a Jeremy Kyle show or The Wright Stuff! And her interviews would benefit from someone giving her real thoughts as in the 'Between the Lines' round of Mock The Week where Hugh Dennis gives the real thoughts of whichever public figure Frankie Boyle's portraying giving a speech that week!

I got the following:

CD
Van Morrison: A Sense of Wonder
Siouxsie & the Banshees: Peek-a-Boo
Rammstein: Sensucht
Elton John: The Captain & the Kid
Tim Finn: Imaginary Kingdom
Crowded House: Farewell to the World
David Gray: Greatest Hits
Nazareth: Complete Singles Collection (3 CD)

DVD
Yes: Acoustic - Guaranteed No Hiss
Yes: Classic Artists
Yes: Live in Philadelphia 79
Moody Blues: Classic Artists
Siouxsie & the Banshees: Seven Year Itch Live
Ween: Live in Chicago
Jeff Wayne: War of the Worlds Live (Deluxe Edtion)

LP

Just pre-ordered the first 3 Pilot albums:

From the Album of the same name
Second Flight
Morin Heights

All 3 are remastered with bonus songs.

A much under-rated band and of course the backbone of the early Alan Parson's Project albums. Stuart Tosh left to join 10cc, Dave Paton became Rick Wakeman's and Elton's bass man on tour while Ian Bairnson played for Tina Turner and Beverley Craven.

All 3 albums are pop perfection with Morin Heights a classic album and their finest.

Sounds interesting Ned. I used to like Pilot, though I never had any of their albums. I didn't know they were involved in the APP albums either.
Always liked the sound they produced. smiley

They have produced some excellent material even if it does fall into the pop/rock genre. A band that got better album by album. I have most of there stuff including the remade 1977 album 'Twos a Crowd' under the 'Blue Yonder' band name (Paton and Bairnston) about 4-5 years ago. A wonderful album and they have enhanced the songs from the original. I simply want the remastered as it has bonus material too and they are not that expensive. They come out on 27th July.

Paton, Bairnson (a much under-rated guitarist) and Tosh appear on many APP albums - David sings on a couple of the albums too.

I will see what I can do for you wink

The new Transatlantic Deluxe Edition just arrived Friday and immediately I watched the 'making of' DVD. What a treat to see how these amazing musicians put together a masterpiece.

Today I plan on enjoying the 2 audio discs while reading the day's newspaper. I know some of you had advanced copies, but I've not heard any reviews or comments as of yet............. undecided

Did anyone see the repeat of the Douglas Adams documentary on BBC-4? Gary Brooker was on in relation to the 'Grand Hotel' album having inspired the Restaurant At The End Of The Universe part of the trilogy.
