    Hmm, Builder? I’ll take that, although my facial hair looks more like the leather-clad biker.

    For me a very housey album, with that "after party" vibe. Got that proper "we've burned it, and now we're chillin" thing going on. Probably perfect for being sat round in said situation, but listening to it as an album at home now? Not so much.

    Da Funk & Around The World are the obvious mainstream highlights, but Fresh's intro stands out in particular as really nice, and Teachers provides a much welcomed change of pace with the lyrical content & funky stye. Fave track on the whole album is probably High Fidelity, a bit more classic dance-esq, with Alive being a type of dark ambience which I like too.

    Most other tracks are steady enough, but not that much on the album gets me really going either, despite the fact that a fair few are mostly listenable tracks, enjoyable in their own litte way. Rock N Roll however I found 7 min worth of total fucking ear-bleeding bollocks though.

    I definitely find each section on most tracks repeats too much for my taste too, and usually needs halfing for me to not get bored. Rollin and Scratchin' a perfect example of a track which kicks in 3min too late for me. Understandable in context of the era & track purposes though (obv usually mixing with other tracks).

    Not an album for me. I was just never one for the after party vibe and I found it a slog to get through all 16 tracks several times over. Just too much filler.

    What album's up next chaps?
    How about Parallel Lines by Blondie... A real classic that marked the move by Blondie from pretty shit American Punk wannabees to something altogether more musical.

    Hmm, not sure about that.

    Blondie were an important part of the New York punk scene; I wouldn’t call their early work „pretty shit“, as it was during that period that Debbie Harry became an icon.

    And yes, I still would.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Sounds good to me

    Got that on Vinyl too, so I'll save my listening for Sat night

    Has everyone posted their thought on Homework yet? Only seen a few.

    I went to see Blondie at the Cambridge Corn Exchange a few years ago.
    Debbie Harry was massive, and not in a good way.
    The band were excellent.
    As for their early work - they were on their uppers because their fan base for records was pretty small.
    Mike Chapman came on board to try and rescue Blondie from oblivion and was the genius behind Parallel Lines.
    Without that change in direction and Chapman pulling the band members away from the course of self destruction they were on, I doubt whether they would have lasted long.
    Of their earlier stuff the only number that sticks in my mind is Rip Her to Shreds.
    So are we revisiting PL, or does someone have a selection that the rest would prefer?

    I had a couple of listens & for me G&R are a bit too heavy, the hits are great but wasn't fussed on the rest

    Listenable but I wouldn't go out of my way for it

    My plan is to stick Appetite for Destruction on later tonight, hopefully on celebration of a fine Forest performance.
