Let's drag this thread kicking and screaming back to the front page.

Just bought the Man of Steel Soundtrack. It is awesome. I also recently purchased the latest outing for Daft Punk, which on the whole is rather enjoyable. More so when the sun is out and the windows are rolled down.

Damn, you can say that again. As Daft Punk have been basically my only 'favourite band' for aeons (though Justice and The Glitch Mob are elbowing their way into the fold), there's something really strange yet satisfying with Random Access Memories. It's also not 'a bit crap' (like Human After All sortof was), so that was exceedingly welcome. Georgio, Touch and Contact have really implanted irrevocably themselves onto my brain.

Lovely, really genuinely lovely.

That again.

Anything more I can say for you? Though on a serious note I quite agree with your impressions of the album, and those are some cracking tracks. I was never a fan of them as such. One of those where there was the hits they did that I have heard and liked, but no real want to go out and buy one of their albums. I would say that on this occasion the only reason I picked it up was because of the Tron album they did. And I am glad I did.

Futurecops! Presents We Are The Future is on my iTunes wishlist, more from the Rosso Corsa Records, a French studio. They specialise in outrun electro, synthwave and chillwave heavily influenced by the 80s.

Maethelvin - DELIGHT

More from the studio:
Dance With The Dead - The Deep

Miami Nights 1984 - Ocean Drive

I'm sure I suffer from stereotypical teenage (female?) angst, because the self-titled Paramore album has really started to grown on me.

Also, I've been listening to a random shuffle of my old Nirvana stuff and it's still all good.

From what songs I've heard from it, I can well believe that. Their previous album I didn't like at all, but this one has some catchy songs.


I've also been liking the new Fallout Boy album Save Rock and Roll, which I did not expect at all.

Shaggy: is it? That God is Dead song on the radio seems terminally boring to me, not a patch on Paranoid and stuff like that. Maybe there are better album tracks I've simply not heard yet of course, I don't know.
Check out my debut fantasy novel from Fox Spirit Books, The Hobgoblin's Herald (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hobgoblins-Herald-R-Aston/dp/1910462047). If you've read it, please rate and review it on amazon; I'd be eternally grateful. The sequel, Eater of Names, is out in 2018, so watch this space.

Tbh, i'm a big Paramore fan. Like with Nirvana, I think their first album is the rawest, and in many ways the hardest to get into.

I'm also listening to a lot of Fleetwood Mac and P!nk at the mo. All good stuff.

<shrugs> Individual taste, I suppose. I just got completely in tune with the album straight off on the first listen. I mean... "End Of The Beginning" starts off and you think that you've taken a Tardis trip... it's old-school Sabs. Which then changes to more 'modern' Sabs (ie: more reminiscent of some of Ozzy's solo stuff) - still good, but different.
Personally, I liked "God Is Dead?", although I'll agree it's not the most exciting track ever ("terminally boring" is somewhat harsh, I think). "Zeitgeist" hit the spot, as did "Dear Father". Of the bonus tracks, "Methademic" is a gem.
Although I came into listening to Sabbath comparatively late - my introduction to heavy metal was provided by the likes of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ozzy (solo) and Metallica - I've always had a soft spot for their almost totally non-frantic style of metal. Dark but melodic. "13" is a definite throwback to early ("proper") Sabbath. No doubt some will say that they lack imagination, merely copying themselves... others may say that they've come full circle. Me, I don't care - I just like it.

Let's drag this up from the depths.

I have spent pretty much all this last week listening the Oblivion soundtrack. Seriously awesome. And that title track is nothing short of phenomenal.

Also added the Elysium, Man on Fire, After Earth and Star Trek: Into Darkness soundtracks to the playlist for some variety this week.

Here's a thing. Also for 'What are you watching?' and, to some's tastes, 'Film Nest'.

Enjoy:

Daft Punk's Contact over the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I bloody love Daft Punk, me.

...good grief. That song was already my favorite on the album, for the very reasons that this elevated it--and elevated it it has. Utterly fantastic.

I've heard the normal version this before, was very happy with this different version of the song:

The Cruxshadows - Winterborn (Celtic Version):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uK8flUJRYEk
Dry your eyes and quietly bear this pain with pride
For heaven shall remember the silent and the brave
And promise me they will never see, the fear within our eyes
(my eyes are closed)
We will give strength to those who still remain

So bury fear, for fate draws near
And hide the signs of pain
With noble acts, the bravest souls
Endure the heart's remains
Discard regret, that in this debt
A better world is made
That children of a newer day might remember
And avoid our fate

Ain't for me, I'm afraid. Made me think of the Tangerine Dream soundtrack to The Keep: utterly incongruous. (That said, the bit where Dave enters the Star Gate works quite well.)

Been listening to Absentee allot recently, ruing their current hiatus and am saddened that they nor the projects that stemmed from the band have mainstream attention or admiration. Maybe their lyrics aren't as wry (or at least popculture smart) or about the everyday like Turner's when the monkeys started but Michaelson sings poigniantly and with wit about universal themes in a setting where every relationship is dysfunctional.

Been listening to a lot of proggy stuff lately:

Mostly Autumn, whose track 'Unquiet Tears' is nicely gothic.

Bruce (Pineapple Thief) Soord's collaboration with Jonas (Katatonia) Renkse is pretty good, too.

Also, some early Ayreon.

Oh, and I finally picked up a CD copy of Yes' 'Going For The One' to replace my old tape copy. It's been remastered and it sounds lovely and clear and... well, really rather wonderful.

:)

I bought a CD of Cradle of Filth - Principle of Evil Made Flesh. It's my favourite of their albums with Vempire being the second favourite.
