    Within Temptation II

    Not sure if My Indigo was being discussed on here, or on a separate thread, but I got it a couple of weeks ago and, for a pop album, it's very very good (not that I listen to much "pop" these days). Sharon's voice is absolutely made for this sort of music (runs and hides)

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    No news is good news?............... or maybe they're just having a well-earned break!

    I just looked up PULSE - I may have to get it on BluRay if it's available. Comfortably Numb is probably my favourite song of all time, and I only have the live version on RW's The Wall live BluRay (which is fab, don't get me wrong, but it's not DG is it?...)

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    That version of I'm So Afraid is absolutely amazing!!! Takes me back about 20 years to when I first heard it....
  5. I really could have written this post. Main difference is I came to the band post-release of EFMB, but otherwise....
  6. Yeee Gods you've made this complicated! So I'll keep it simple: all album versions: Ghost Love Score - 5 The Greatest Show On Earth - 5 The Poet And The Pendulum - 4 Storytime - 4 I Want My Tears Back - 3 Walking In The Air - 3 Elan - 1

    Within Temptation II

    And yet to my (cloth) ears EFMB is one of the best sounding albums going....I can hear everything

    Within Temptation II

    Wow! Will have to listen back to this. BBC Radio 2 is always just SO hip and trendy

    Your TOP-5 of ANYTHING

    You're explaining that from a participating viewpoint, which sounds fair enough, but to watch it?....... I love the new sports (although watching moguls can literally give me backache), and curling can be very exciting....

    Absolutely love King's X, their first 4 albums were magnificent! How about this one:

    It's a little like the "meltdown" that's coming to you and I very shortly.....

    Your TOP-5 of ANYTHING

    Each to their own, but Biathlon? And no Snowboard Cross?!!!

    Agreed, it's been ridiculous.'s all a ploy to get everyone talking about it.....
