    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I would much rather have the album through my door knowing nothing about it, the build-up to WT's latest offering was so poorly done and I really hope the same doesn't happen with the new NW...............so maybe I should just keep away from here

    Your TOP-5 of ANYTHING

    I tried a Tool album (Aenima) recently and it was OK. But I also tried Eat The Elephant by A Perfect Circle, which is a Tool-offshoot, and it was infinitely better - gorgeous album!

    Ghost

    And so I discover that Ghost are coming to Cardiff! And now I have a ticket

    Happy music that makes you smile

    Happy music that makes you smile

    If they supported Take That it would be my perfect pop gig..........but they'd need to reform I guess

    Happy music that makes you smile

    How about some Keane? Great British pop band, no guitars, just well crafted pop songs, like this:

    Favourite album from each year of your life

    Thanks for all the recommendations! Not surprisingly, the other two in your list that I know are the Metallica albums.... Several times I have nearly purchased The Wake by Voivod (because I keep seeing it in my HMV), so maybe I will next time I'm there, but I'll see if Nothingface is there too. I love Anneke Van Geersburgen, so not sure why I haven't checked out The Gathering yet.... Will try to find time to check out these clips too, many thanks

    Favourite album from each year of your life

    I've only listened to four of these albums, and not heard of most of them! Voivod is a band I've meant to check out for a while though....and The Gathering....
