I probably won't be blogging the next few days, so here's an open thread. Your mission: discuss an interesting and controversial topic!
The Delgados: Universal Audio: This is one of those albums (Electric Version is another) that seems to tap directly into the pleasure centers of my brain. I hear the opening chords of "I Fought the Angels" and the rest of the world recedes, I sink into the music like a warm bath. It's strange, because my favorite songs—"Everybody Come Down", or "Sink or Swim"—aren't at all on uplifting themes, but they still give me this happy, contented feeling. Anyway, the CD is awesome, my favorite music purchase so far this year. (Also: what is it with me and bands from Glasgow? The Delgados, Belle & Sebastian, Franz Ferdinand...)Tags:
