I'd like to know why "Full Speed Ahead" was changed to italics. Or maybe it was from italics.
A subtle difference. But it's my favorite variation between the two records.

But when I dabbled in Japanese pop and rock in the early 2000s. That was a whole other ball game.
They ran me about thirty to forty dollars.
The prices have not decreased over the years. It's the one thing keeping me from finishing my Kahimi Karie discography.
These are the things I fret about.

After reading each book I am watching the corresponding movie. Last week I watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It reminded me that I need to find the Weird Sisters tracks.
Next up. Book five. My least favorite of the bunch.
Pulp - Help the Aged. Amazon.com. Used.

It was my introduction to New Order.
It was also my introduction to Yello.
Yello didn't stick with me quite like New Order did.

I didn't know it was originally a side-project of Paul Kantner. And after that the band of the same name.
An interesting album for sure.

Please let me know if a link is down. If possible, I will re-upload. Leave a comment in the post or email me at email@example.com.
If you would like something removed, let me know and I will take it down immediately.
I tend to think of the late eighties as a down era for Duran Duran. Big Thing came out during that time. That's not so say it's a bad era. Or a bad album. But it's not the band at their best.
Then the early nineties came. And Duran Duran was back on the map with Duran Duran.
Duran Duran - Big Thing. Long In the Tooth. Bargain bin.

They were British. In the nineties that was about as deep as my criteria went.
I eventually found a disc. Possibly when I was in the U.K. I didn't love it. I sold it.
When I saw this EP I decided to give them another chance. I still don't love it. Although I do like them more now. Unremarkable for the most part.
Birdland. Musical Energi. Used.

"Tender" went on forever and sounded like "Kumbaya."
Eventually it started to grow on me. It took repeated listens. And the passage of time. It doesn't come close to the albums that preceded it. Although it certainly stands on it's own.
Is it one of my favorite Blur albums? No. But there are a lot of great songs on here. "No Distance Left to Run" is a downer that I'd put in my Blur top ten.
I finally came around on "Tender". It took the Cornelius remix to do so. "Kumbaya" sentiments and all.
Blur - 13. New.
For now I'll work on the other covers. They tend to pop up on eBay every now and then.
Along with Missile Command and Asteroid records.
Atari - We'll Be Fighting. eBay. Used.

He gave the five of us compact discs for the holidays. One of mine was a Poster Children disc. I traded it with someone for a Erasure disc. That was the last time I had heard them. Prior to purchasing this record.
Poster Children - Thinner, Stronger. eBay. Used.
Justin introduced me to them. The two albums he provided were lost in the great hard drive crash of 2010. Thankfully I had already purchased another. Adding His Name Is Alive to my listen-purchase cycle.
A cycle that is entirely too complex and geeky to publicly discuss.
His Name Is Alive - Someday My Blues Will Cover the Earth. Amazon.com. Used.

Like a lot of albums, it was eventually filed away. Listened to on occasion. Songs on random.
I really loved that album. I wonder how well it has aged.
I think I'm due for a The Man Who one man listening party.
Travis - Closer. Amazon.com. New.
