As an attempt to start some sort of discussion, does anyone think popular music may be getting a bit more alternative? The likes of Gotye and fun. doing well across the world is quite indicative of that.
Gotye really reminds me of Peter Gabriel, who was quite alternative as pop stars go.
I just bought a new record deck.
Well, a 30 year old new record deck. I am currently cleaning up my collection, it's amazing how much better they sound after a good wash.
But I bought all the remastered Queen album reissues on 180gram vinyl, and disappointingly they are an extremely shoddy release. I have compared them to the CDs, and in some cases the CDs sound way better, and so do my 30 year old original vinyl copies of them. What the hell is that all about?
