Albums you didn't realise you knew inside out

We all love to talk about music.

Albums you didn't realise you knew inside out

Post by CJ+ @ Sat Dec 03, 2016 8:29 am

I changed out the CDs in the car for the first time in forever yesterday. One album that went in was Evolver by The Grid.

Had a couple of hours drive last night, so on it went - for the first time in about five years. It's absolutely brilliant, btw, if you like that sort of thing.

And it turns out I know it forwards, backwards, inside and out. Every melody, beat, bassline, sample and hook. I like discovering new music, but this level of familiarity, with an album I've had for about 20 years, is also great. All the better for not really realising this.

Anyway, yay music that you know dead well.

Transformer Lou Reed

One album 1975, one casettee, one CD and now another LP later. Still a fantastic album.

Also: Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd.

And New Boots and Panties by Ian Dury and the Blockheads.

And Never Mind the Bollocks, Sex Pistols. Set the amp for 11 and enjoy. God save the Queen because tourists are money .....

No future, no future.

Takk by Sigur Ros, but it's one of the few albums I will completely immerse myself in and listen to the whole album totally uninterrupted.

At work today and someone is playing Michael Jackson's Bad album. Haven't listened to it for years - since I last had a cassette player to be precise, so it was a bit of a surprise to still know it so well. Thankfully I can't remember the dance moves I tried to do for a school class performance thingy sometime in '89...

Adore Sigur Ros, even if I haven't a clue what's going on for at least 90% of the time.

Everything if that's what you thought. It's not background music Freddo, actually listen to it.
