Now it's The Who - Real Good Lookin' Boy. It needs massive volume, which at this time is only sanely attainable through headphones. \:\)

Good choices, Peter!

Also, Charles, I recommend Modest Mouse. Peter's right--a good starting point is "Good News for People. . ." They're latest, "We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank," is excellent as well. Start with those two. The earlier stuff is a lot less accessible.

In some of the reviews on Amazon.com, that's what it was sounding like. It sounded like I'd get into the newer stuff easier. Thanks, guys.

I have "The Moon and Antarctica" and I don't think I've been able to listen to the whole thing. What a shame cuz I really dig the other two albums.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add--I found the recording quality excellent on the Modest Mouse albums.

I was wondering about that, actually. Good to know!

Hello Saferide - Hello Saferide

I'm not far into the disc, but I'm enjoying it. I bought it because I liked Maia Hirasawa's solo album, and she's part of this band. Unfortunately, it was another import, so I had to pay a little more, but so far I think it was worth it.

I also got

Hello Saferide - Would You Let Me Play This EP 10 Times a Day?

and it's great, too. I think I'll actually play it 10 times before I go to bed tonight.

OK, I'm totally stuck on Van Morrison's Astral Week on vinyl. There are worse things in the world I could be hooked on! Played it again tonight. I'm trying to only play it once a night until the CD I ordered arrived. I prefer to play things over and over again until it's completely etched in my brain. But I don't like to wear out my vinyl, and I only have one copy of it. It's just so amazingly brilliant.

So, I moved on to Ella Fitzgerald's Best of the Songbooks Ballads. Her pronunciation always amazes me!

Oh, and Modest Mouse's Good News is amazing! Give their older stuff some time to grow on you, but it is brilliant too. Will open your eyes. Moon and Antarctica is amazing too.

I'm giving it the ol' college try. Dug out my copy of "Moon and Antarctica" and will have another go at it.
