Marcus Miiller 'Renaissance'

Managed to score a copy after a rave recommendation from Slinger (of this parish).

Bit funky, bit jazzy, bit mellow, bit rocky and totally get-down groovy. Also it is amazingly well-recorded and a masterclass in bass-playing.

Go for it. :dance:
I listened to this on Amazon music last night. It's good but too much of a bass wankfest for my liking. I didn't think I would ever say that cos I love funky bass playing but this guy sticks out like a sore thumb. Too much playing for himself .

Sorry.

No probs, Stu.

For Bass-freaks only, I fear.

Katatonia - Dead air
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

Steve Hackett 'Time Lapse'

Image

Live album recorded during 2 separate tours in 81 and 91, the first of which I saw him on. Good memories of that show.
Great playing from top-notch band(s), a lot of early-period classic numbers and a nice, clear, dynamic recording as well.

Recommended for Hackett fans. :dance:

Bon Jovi - 2020
Some topical songs and it was good to see him on the Biden campaign trail.

A dream-pop obscurity from a UK outfit that only released one album:

Skin Games 'The Blood Rush' (1989)

Image

Yearning, soaring pop/rock that comes over as a toughened-up Cocteau Twins.
Partially produced by Steve Hillage and some good, anthemic songs.

Not essential - but nice. :banana-rock:
