    Well, things are looking bad for England, Beckham is sat on the bench weeping with a bruise on his leg, and Mr Potato Head got sent off for stomping on some Portugal player's tender parts - it was good to see one of them in real rather than feigned agony for once ... [​IMG]

    But - the game's still going on, there's hope yet!

    Any good? How does it compare to Absolution and Origin of Symmetry?

    I got it before it came out *naughty Emily* And i must say it's pretty good. I don't have the Absolution album but what i remember from it i think this album might actually be better than both Absolution and Origin of Symmetry although it's quite different so hard to really compair...

    Send me on my way ~ Rusted Root (it's a track in Matilda <3)

    Thanks Emily

    I've been listening to a couple of tracks on Muse's MySpace page. As you say, sounds quite different to the earlier stuff.

    What the hell!! I'll probably go and buy it anyway.

    Now I mostly listen to classical music, including 'modern' classical (which I think include some pieces composed at the beginning of 20th century), I like a CD where Alec Cobbe (a resident of Hatchlands) plays instruments from Cobbe (his) collection (mostly harpsichords and pianofortes). Concerts at Yehudi Menuhin School are a real treat.

    Rock/ pop, I listened to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc., and recently to Nine Inch Nails and Korn a bit.

    I think that nothing can replace a live concert (acoustic instruments and human voice, no sound amplification whatsoever), but a good audio hi-fi reproduction equipment may help the experience.

    It looks like members of deviantART give special significance to '~' symbol, why?

    Ok, what I have been listening to this week:

    Sharks, Making Contact and Misdemeanor, all by UFO.
    Aqualung - Jethro Tull.
    In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson
    Greatest Hits - Thin Lizzy
    Ma Vlast - Smetana (recorded by a Slovakian orchestra I can't recall)
    Fallen - Evanescence
    Greatest Hits - Whitesnake

    And on the MP3 player, I've not got past a couple of Deep Purple tracks, and, er, a couple of, er, Saxon tracks.
    :eek:

    Aqualung and Court of the Crimson King - absolute classics....but SAXON!! No wonder you're embarrased.

    Mind you they were the inspiration for Spinal Tap, so at least they have one redeeming feature. :D :D

    Embarrassing indeed, but it was only two tracks!

    P.S. Also "Argus" by Wishbone Ash.

    Oh my..... :eek:

    Foggy teenage memories of a shared house back in the 70's.

    I must confess that, inspired by this thread, I dug out my copy of Deep Purples 'Burn' yesterday, and blew the dust off my old turntable to give it a spin. Not as good as I'd fondly imagined, but quite listenable in a sad, retro-hippy kind of way.
