25. Okt. 2011, 21:20 von amodelofcontrolTwo reunions of different kinds hit the news last week, although interestingly the return of Steps seemed to be rather overshadowed by The Stone Roses. The NME in particular are treating the latter like the, er, Resurrection, the most important music news, well, ever. Which in some respects kinda shows them for what they and most of the music industry are about nowadays – obsessed by nostalgia and perhaps no longer all that interested in new music – which, as the papers full title suggests, should really be their focus. Never mind the collective amnesia about just how bad The Stone Roses were live last time...
But it got me thinking – there have been a hell of a lot of band reunions, for better or worse, in recent years – and here are ten of them. (Note: I’m not including the recent announcement of the return of Marion in this list – as I’d rather see how that works out first, as welcome as it is).

29. Jun. 2010, 20:13 von Colin_in_Mexico1.) Definitely Maybe
An album that keeps bringing back memories. And it's got one of the best album covers I've ever seen.
2.) Some Friendly
A really consistent record, best if you listen to it as a whole.
3.) A Storm In Heaven
This album has got one of the best intros and best outros ever. The guitars on Star Sail and Slide Away blow your mind. It reminds me of my last days at school when I realized that life is not as good as it seems, really sad and boring. But this album is really good, worth a listen.
4.) The Stone Roses
The cover is inspired by Jackson Pollock. John Squire, the band's "visual artist" as well as very gifted guitarist, came up with the idea. …

When I discovered The Verve a few years ago, it was a very important musical shock for me. To the point where it soon became my favourite band and I became slightly obsessed with their music. I recently started to dive deeper into their legacy and to collect everything I could find by them on the internet (b-sides, demos, bootlegs, ...) which, considering the quality of their outtakes and the amazingness of their live performances, only contributed to increase the addiction.
This journal doesn't just offer me an overview of my collection. It is a tribute to The Verve and also serves as a good insight of The Verve's legacy for non-fans, newcomers, people who want to know more about this band or even fans. You'll find many videos here, their music videos and some of the highlights of their live history.
So, here is a detailed report of my Verve collection. By "collection" I mean, what I have on my computer and the way it is ordered in my library…
13. Apr. 2010, 19:56 von amodelofcontrolBack in the mists of time (in other words, back in 2009), I did a rundown of - according to me - the best songs and albums of the past decade, and then followed it up with similar treatment of the 90s. Although, I only ever got the best songs done. So, in an effort to actually complete something I've started, here is the first part of my top 100 albums of the 90s. This was a really, really tough list to compile - and indeed, I've still not finished the remainder of it yet. To keep it to one hundred albums, I set one simple rule - each artist would only feature once. This has of course meant that a few obvious albums may be missing, and indeed there are a few others I had to cull too, as even with one album per artist I still had a "shortlist" nearing 150.
In addition, with the exception of one artist, there is a Spotify playlist to accompany these twenty, and subsequent parts of this will follow the same pattern.
