I read a glowing review online and decided to try the record out for myself. I actually didn't think it was that bad. I mean no doubt this record  is way chill. This is not an avant garde rock n roll record at all. But I'm a big fan of Nick Cave's movie scores,  and I hear a lot of that vibe here. But it's a fair point to argue he should keep those projects in their own lanes.
  Geezer, you are absolutely right. I listened to the premiere on my phone, missing all the subtlety of the wonderful layers of sound. It is very much like his film scores (which are brilliant). The 14 minute epic, "Hollywood" is particularly effective. Lyrics are incredible, as usual. It may turn out to be my favorite album of the year. Oh, well, so much for rash judgements. And, yes, the reviews are incredibly positive, many giving it a 100% rating. Thanks for setting me straight.

Yeah I listened to some of it again today and I kinda dig it. That's happened to me before where I have to listen to a record a few times before it grows on me. And I've had that happen in the opposite direction too. I've listened to a record for the first time and was blown away. But then on the third or fourth listen I'm like "wait a minute? I'm not sure if this is as good I originally thought," lol.

The Bangles in 1986:



And in 2010:



Susanna Hoffs looked better in 2010 than she did in 1986!

The Rolling Stones - Through the Past, Darkly
 This was the second hits compilation by the lads, and my very first Stones album (I was 12, at the time). Undeniable greatness.

 The Kinks have always been my Beatles, and I will always love their music.

 The Who - Who's Next

 This is one of my favorite "arena rock" albums. No one here ever mentions them. Any Who fans out there?
