Re: Best Live Version of 'All for one'

On a similar note, what do you think was Paul Anka's best live version of "(You're) Having My Baby"?

Re: Liam Gallagher's single

The Liam Gallagher thing just doesn't interest me. I do not understand why people would spend money on that. I have heard good things about Noel's new music, and I suspect hanging around U2 on their tour will inspire him to come up with some new ideas instead of more 3-chord Dadrock. I might give No...

They're kind of pathetic

It's now been 8 years and two months since Ian Brown was involved in the release of a new album. It's now been almost 14 years since John Squire was involved in the release of a new album. It's now been 23 years since Reni was involved in the release of a new album. Let's put this into perspective, ...

Re: Mani selling a lot of equipment

Not really getting this. How could Mani possibly need money this desperately? He's not making alimony payments, is he...?

Re: Ruined, Tarnished, Status Quo or Enhanced?

No, Real Love was on imagine. Free As A Bird was never released. It didn't even have a bridge or middle 8. That's why you hear McCartney / Harrison singing the "whatever happened to..." part. I do like FAAB but I think they could've made Lennon's vocal sound better, or use a track that had a better...

Re: Ruined, Tarnished, Status Quo or Enhanced?

Same goes for 'Free As A Bird'. Getting Jeff Lynne to buff up a dodgy quality Lennon demo and pass it off as a Beatles single?! The most bizarre thing about 'Free as a Bird' is that none of the surviving Beatles was aware that the song had already been commercially issued -- in 1988 -- on the Imagi...

Re: Ruined, Tarnished, Status Quo or Enhanced?

They showed they could play and fill the stadiums like your u2 or muse with no backing tapes. No backing tapes, but lots of auto-tune or something on Brown's vocal at select gigs and most obviously in the Made of Stone movie. (U2, incidentally, filled stadiums the world over for many years without ...

Re: Rate the albums : Time Changes Everything

I can't really see giving this more than about a '7'. It's a solid album, with about half great songs, half so-so ones, and great production.
