    Finished Reputation.

    This album intentionally a more aggressive, maybe even angry list of sings, but not without danceable rhythm to it and not without some songs that portray a more hopeful tone. Some emphasis on lust, particularly in "Gorgeous". Not quite so romantic in the traditional sense.

    Kate Bush’s debut album The Kick Inside

    This album had Wuthering Heights, which is still pretty remarkable to wrap your head around that she wrote aged 19.

    That track that forced my revisit to this album is L’amour Looks Something Like You. It’s just some two and a half minute throwaway Mills & Boon one night stand song, with a little white witchery sprinkled over it - perfect.

    @Emperor Ferus Nice picks! Big fan of both those artists. Billy is my all-time favorite.

    I actually have all the Top 100 collections. Really enjoy selecting a random year and listening while I'm busy with various tasks.

    Here’s a great cover of Rock With You, by Seu Jorge.

    If you’re wondering who the Hell he is, he’s the guy playing all the Bowie covers in Portuguese in the movie A Life Aquatic

    Considering the band has been around awhile and had some tragedy, they have been very consistent. This could have been recorded right along side White Pony. This is great stuff :D

    I just listened to BTS's new album BE and aside from one song, "Stay", which gives off a dance music-y kind of vibe, I wasn't enticed by any of the other songs.

    See I really like Life Goes On, the lead single, and Telepathy. But I am not a huge fan of the general softer, slower, and more poppy thing... Although I get it. We will hopefully get some return to more hip hop (Rap Line has little to do on this album).

    The first time I heard Wuthering Heights, it blew my ******* mind. And I wasn't even watching the video. When you think you've heard everything, Kate Bush will change your life.

    I’ve been as huge Kate fan since my teenage years (which is a long time ago). It was good to hear her live album from a few years back, it allowed me to hear her songs with fresh ears.

    Life Goes On is very pleasant sounding to my ears, but something about it doesn't capture me. I will say that I really like JK's vocals at the beginning of the track most of all. As a I type this I'm re-listening to it, and it is growing on me a bit more, especially the chorus.

    Telepathy has a really strong start with its beat, but the rest is kind of meh. Dynamite is catchy enough for me to vibe with if my friends are playing it on Spotify, but I would never listen to it on my own. I think the only lead singles I've liked from them have been "Idol", "I Need You", and "Spring Day".

    Thought I'd share this here. My organization, Northwell Health, was a co-sponsor of a special concert featuring a slew of celebrity singers for a fundraiser to help nurses. It completely refrains from being politically motivated at all; it's just about supporting the frontline workers.

    I've really been getting into Emancipator lately. Mountain of Memory, Safe In The Steep Cliffs, Baralku, and the appropriately-named Soon It Will Be Cold Enough. All good stuff. They still have a couple of albums I haven't checked out yet.

    See I am not a fan of Spring Day. But my fav single of theirs is Mic Drop.
