Ooooh. Nice. Yeah, I could only listen to it the once, really um...I'll have to go back to it at some point when I feel I can.

Iggy Pop-The Idiot

Easily my most listened to record. Captivating all the way through with an unmistakable atomsphere. I know Bowie was involved with this buy sonically I think it tops anything he ever did. "Mass Production" is the best closing to an album I can think of.

Lou Reed- Transformer
Curtis Mayfield- Curtis
Yes- Fragile
New Order- Low Life
Heaven 17- Heaven 17
Exile......
Loveless...
Revolver...
