What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

Thats just odd though because its arguably their best (All Mod Cons and Sound Affects, would be the others in the toss up)

Well, with all due respect, In The City is the runaway best album.

Art School

Slow Down

Away From The Numbers

Sounds From The Street

Non-Stop Dancing

Takin’ My Love

Just an absolute barn stormer of an album. 

Then of course there is The Gift. Now you remove the 4 minutes that make up The Circus and Planners Dream Goes Wrong and that album is also superb. Don’t get me wrong, Mod Cons and Sound Affects are great albums. Settings Sons? That’s got Thick As Thieves and Saturday’s Kids, but in my opinion, a fair bit of filler.

In the City - Fun youthful exuberance

This Is the Modern World - meh, too soon after ITC

All Mod Cans - Maturity Breakthrough

Setting Sons - The Peak, genuinely love every single track on it

Sound Affect - Brilliant but Milking It

The Gift - Bits and pieces album, hints of the future (meh), some good stuff some bad. Mind elsewhere

C’mon now, do yourself a World Cup of Jam songs. Nothing on that album gets in to the semi’s.

Maybe, Thick As Thieves or Saturday’s Kids if they had a lucky run through the quarters.

I have done the best Jam album thing many times, this is no talking shit off the top of my head like I’d usually engage in.

It’s a fine song, really good.

My personal taste, I’d prefer:

In The City - Away From The Numbers and/or Slow Down

The Gift - Precious and/or Ghosts 

All Mod Cons - Down In The Tube Station

Sound affects - Boy About Town and/or Scrape Away

 

Like I say, it doesn’t make the semi’s.

I obsessed over this album. Really did. Not sure if I ever replaced it following the great LP theft of 1988.

If ever a band should have been bigger... Almost made it so many times as the Palies and as Shack.

Clear vinyl is becoming a bit of a bugbear of mine if the centre labels don't state which is the A side

Mine does :)

I get ya though, most Lp's these days have the print SO small I can't see if it's side A or B without binoculars

Yeah my go to is to hope theres an unequal amount of tracks on each side but that's a f***er with clear vinyl and some of mine don't even mention which side is which on the label

The Grid - One Way traffic

A 6 Track affair on the Moog Record Label. Yes that Moog!

The Grid (and all other artists in the series) were given 4 days access to the Touring Moog Studio (with vintage and modern Moog intruments)

What the Grid came up with is in the sort of Cabs, Chris & Cosey, Tangerine Dream ballpark - analogue soundscapes.

It's rather out there.
