    3. For some reason, I started following AC Newman in Twitter a couple of weeks ago. His live-tweeting the Opening Ceremony was hilariously snarky.
    8. I have no idea how some Bon Iver snuck into my collection a few years ago. That will be rectified quickly.

    1. Evidently it must be a "Get Happy!!" kind of day.

      Yes, see below. Do you have the 20-song version or the 50-song version of that release?

      1. I havent listened to the bonus disc in a long time.
        Rhino did the Costello reissues right by providing tons bonus content. I was working my way up from My Aim Is True and have only made it to Trust. Just an incredible run of music.

  5. Top 15 Prog albums, per Prog Archives long standing survey:

    1. Close To The Edge - Yes
    2. Thick As A Brick - Jethro Tull

    5. Foxtrot - Genesis
    6. In The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson
    7. Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd

    4. Just ripped last night. Trip-hop side project from Fila Brazillia's Steve Cobby, with a jazzier feel and some vocals.

    6. I still absolutely love this. I may have mentioned this before, but I'd been listening to (my edited version of) Enter the Wu-Tang. First, there's that muffled bump from.. what? "Chessboxin'"? Then she sings "It could all be so simple..." and the lights go on. There's probably lots of versions of things like this that I miss, but I got this one and I love it.

    7. Download-only bonus track that came with the vinyl. I bought the vinyl for this track. "Last night I got drunk and kissed another man.
    That's the kind of thing that I've been doing to get back at you.
    I've become such an unbelievable whore.
    All the things that I picture myself killing you for
    are the same things that I've done twice as much to you to get even.
    That's married women do, isn't it?"
    Totally worth the price of vinyl for something otherwise I had on CD.

    E. Great song. It's about living in an area where your political opinion is atypical, with a grass metaphor.

    1. Don't Stop Believin' came out when I was in High School. Thank God no told me that it would still be around in 2014. I might have ended it right there and then,

      1. Oops that is suppose to go as a response to the Padre above.

        Now that I'm here, I have to admit the Bottle Rockets re-release didn't do a whole lot for me.
