Battles with Angels [Open Thread]

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 7, 2005 10:59 PM

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...)


Not controversial, but...

The new Green Day album kicks copious amounts of backside. I highly recommend the procurement thereof.

I keep hearing good things about that album—I definitely need to give it a listen at some point.

Yeah, it's excellent. Listened to it in Lem's car on the way down to Redondo beach and bought it the next day. :)
