Bob Dylans Blood on the Tracks.

No matter how hard I try I simply cannot enjoy Bobs stuff.It doesn't matter to me how clever or insightful his lyrics are, his singing hurts my ears and as he goes for the higher octaves I always ended up putting my hands over my ears.

Sorry Bob, I have tried my best over many years but thats it for me, we are through :-)

I find Bob's voice on his earlier output to be kinder on the ears. I'm a man of costant sorrow :grin:

His voice is even harsher live. :lol:
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

Brian Eno 'Apollo - extended edition' (2019)

Image

One of Brain One's finest achievements, 'Apollo - atmospheres and soundtracks' has received a glorious new remastering which enhances the shimmering delicacy and has me wishing I had a subwoofer to fully feel the floor - shaking effects.

The second bonus album is okay, not special, a bit in the vein of 'More Music for Films'.
