What are we listening to?

I can't find the original thread, so I'm starting this new one.
I'm enjoying this album so much that I just had to mention it.

including
Johnny Cash and Ray Charles, Crazy old Soldier
Johnny Cash and June Carter, Jackson

I'm still listening to the same old pop-punk, Emo, metal, gothic, anything that is good basically, but not too crash bang wallop.

A recent one in the car just now was MC Lars a punk rock comedian with a song called Download this song.

I have been listening to lots of AOR today, strange watching some of the 80s bands they look really haggard with their long hair still looking pristine check out Pretty Maids, they certainly looked pretty back in the day, now they make Alice Cooper and Steve Tyler look normal

I spent a bit of time yesterday listening to a couple of tracks from David Bowie's Black Star album, now, I have liked much of Bowie's work, especially the early stuff, but this album is just a pretentious load of old pony. Giving awards to be people because they have died seems to be a nonsense. The Brits always have a tendency to select rubbish (I know it's subjective) but it strikes me that one of the criteria for winning seems to be to kick the bucket. If George Michael brings out a new album of material in the next couple of months I fully expect him to get the next one (unless Paul Weller or Elton John slip of this mortal coil). This year (2016) I have heard some great new albums, not least Adele's 25.

It's interesting that you should mention Adele.
She will performing in Brisbane (at the Gabba cricket ground) in March.
They are expecting (and have just about sold out) a crowd of 60,000 for each of two nights. The ground seating capacity is around 40,000. The rest will be on the ground.

Bad call bristle.... black star is immense and was when he released it prior to his death, albeit 0nly 2 days. The Brits have always been pony but comparing black star to 25 is frankly laughable. Bit like comparing Magic to Pele :D

Stay at home Tony and be grateful you miss it. Unless you like listening to gut wrenching miserable lyrics of female misery. On second thoughts maybe it is a music equivalent of watching Posh! :D

immense, next you'll be telling me that Kronenbourg is better than any real ale. Sadly as I pointed out to someone in a PM earlier, I couldn't think of a 2016 release from UK that could have been a contender, Adele's effort for better or worse was released in 15. For me all the best albums were from US, Canada or the Continent I include amongst the best Green Day, back to their best after the dreadful Uno,Dos and Tres, Sum41 Poets Of The Fall and The Pretty Reckless. There are probably others but seriously any of those and the recent Blink 182 album are all in my opinion far more worthy of a listen than Leonrd Cohen, sorry I mean David Bowie.

:lol:
Being at the Gabba one of the few things that would get me there would be an Australia v England Test match. Or a Posh v Brisbane football game.
