What Was The Last Album You Listened To?

Please tell me in the comments section what the last album you listened to was.  The last album I played was Horace Silver “Tokyo Blues”, nice 60’s Blue Note jazz – on Super Audio CD.

    Well the most recent NEW purchase would be OMD’s History of Modern, but the album I’ve been listening to nearly constantly of late is They Might Be Giants’ Flood, because I just did a show in Vancouver covering the album top to bottom (I sang backup).

    Bit the show’s now over and I’m still listening to it …

    Brian: I have that one too! Chas: If I had to pick a TMBG album, it would be “Flood”. Dana: the live album by Hunters & Collectors that I have is called “The Way To Go Out” (from ’84) – I used to have a video of that, too. Jim + Chas: Must be a new OMD album, I don’t know it. David Z: I will be writing about “Siren” this week. – Ron

    Well. “Siren” is a problem record for me. I’m a huge Roxy Music fan. They are one of my all time favorite bands, especially since they seriously influenced most of my favorite bands that followed. “LITD” is the first song I heard on Top 40 radio and it really sunk its hooks into me at the time. It’s one of my “Three Seminal Singles.” [http://postpunkmonk.wordpress.com/2010/10/07/three-seminal-singles-number-3/]

    I first bought “Flesh + Blood” on release and it was the first RM I’d heard since 1975. I next bought “Manifesto” and then “Avalon” on release. All of the classic RM happened one night of pent-up buying in 1985. I went to two CD stores and bought the rest of the canon in original German CD pressings. A friend had cautioned me years earlier when buying in his store [Crunchy Armadillo Records] that I should pass on “Siren” so I didn’t buy it on vinyl years earlier. After hearing all of those first five albums at once, I can see what he was talking about. “Siren” sounded like a really bad Bryan Ferry album. Apart from “Drug,” I really love “Both Ends Burning!” That’s about it. I’ve heard bootlegs of material from this tour where “Whirlwind” really sounded great, but when I compared to the studio concoction, it was somewhat anemic.
