Echo & The Bunnymen - S/T (1987). Their 5th album and probably the last of their incredible streak as a full band.  Unlike the pervious albums it was more polished and radio friendly gaining wider audiences but musically less innovative and repetitive. Well it's always a case when to gain one you must lose the other.  Personally I enjoy this album as much as the others, easier to digest and it still is a great album. Of course my favorite would have to be Ocean Rain.  And that cover is so iconic and so appropriate to just self title the album even if it was their fifth, maybe a move to introduce themselves to the American audience. Some very catchy tunes on this album. This would be the last album with the original four members with the lose of drummer Pete. As if they foresaw the future, all four members of their faces on the cover seems so appropriate now.  #echoandthebunnymen #ianmcculloch #postpunk #lipslikesugar #thegame #80smusic

Blondie - Greatest Hits Deluxe Redux (2014). This was a great value for the price considering the great package it came in.  I love Blondie but I only have their earlier works so this was a good way to get some of her later works. Not a big fan of compilations but if the packaging is good and not enthusiastic enough to collect the whole discography I will go for a comprehensive compilation if available.  This collection is just one of those that just matched exactly with my needs. Sounds good and packaging is great at a reasonable price, good buy on this one. #blondie #debbieharry #compilation #greatesthits #80smusic #cbgb #colorvinyl

Elastica - S/T (1995). To be honest I am not a big fan of their music. Simply put, I have yet to figure out what is so great about this album. But then again I was never a big fan of the Brit-pop scene. For me the best part of this band was Donna, most people favored Justine but I don't know there was something about Donna that just registered for me.  Oh those careless young days....#elastica #britpop #justinefrischmann #donnamatthews #90smusic

A Sunny Day In Glasgow - Ashes Grammar (2017 reissue). I never thought I would see the light of day this gets reissued on vinyl.  I thought I was the only one wanting to get this on vinyl.  I have all their other materials on vinyl, this was the missing tooth until now.  So happy to know that people at VMP saw the need for a vinyl reissue. Limited to 750, I thought it would sell out in a flash. But it's still not sold out, I guess me and only a handful of people realize what a great album this is.  Big thanks to @vinylmeplease for reissuing this gem. #asunnydayinglasgow #ashesgrammar #reissue #dreampop #shoegaze #vinylmeplease

Spitz discography(albums) is now complete! Took a big chunk of my bank with it but considering what the prices are for the old used ones, and even those you can't hardly find them.  Some are already sold out and the ebay flippers have already more than doubled the prices on these records. Bunch of wankers! This reissue series was limited so I made sure I didn't miss out on this one time chance.  Will be introducing some of the albums for those who are not familiar with the band...I'm guessing most of you are.  The albums are absolute super quality, these Japanese guys are totally quality freaks. Well spent money, no regrets or complains, just absolutely beautiful! #spitz #jrock #japanesemusic #discography #limitedrelease #reissue

Gin Blossoms - New Miserable Experience (1992). Honestly I am not a big fan of these guys but I saw couple of posts today that just reminded me. Whether you're a fan or not you can't deny the fact that this album is one helluva mega hit album. I only have and heard this album so I'm not sure what their other stuffs are like. Back then I got really sick of hearing too much of this album on the radio and practically anywhere you went. Lost all interest after this and just never followed them up. Any good albums after this? #ginblossoms #alternative #newmiserableexperience #heyjealousy #allisonroad #hitalbum #90smusic

The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (2012 reissue). Believe it or not I didn't like these guys until I heard 1979. I liked the song so much I revisited their first 2 albums and realized they had good stuff on there.  But the love died soon after Adore, and that's the last of their album that I own. Really thought these guys were gonna be big like U2 or Oasis, well guess not.  Everything just went down the drain with James Iha leaving the band. And you thought all you needed was Billy Corgan. It wasn't the single mans' genius or creativity, it was the chemistry that worked just right with all the members of the band.  These guys are not the only ones who've gone down this path, maybe there's a lesson to be learned there.  #thesmashingpumpkins #billycorgan #jamesiha #darcywretzky #melloncollieandtheinfinitesadness #1979 #alternative #90smusic

New Order - 1981-1982 (2014 reissue). I've got the original 1982 UK press as well, but media condition is not the best, so got this last year. Temptation is one of my favorite New Order tunes, wish I had the 12" single of that tune but this will do.  Of course my all time favorite tune would have to be Ceremony, and I've got that on a 12" single.  Lot of people choose their 90s tunes as their favorites, but for me it's the early New Order just after Joy Division that I love the most.  Lying somewhere in between post-punk days of Joy Division and all out electro-synthpop days.  Wonderful transition they made and in that process they made some incredible outstanding tunes along the way.  Wish people got to know more of their earlier days, you won't find tunes like these anywhere you search.  #neworder #joydivision #postpunk #synthpop #temptation #everythingsgonegreen #factoryrecords #80s #80smusic

A Story of Indie-Pop 1980-1989 - Scared To Get Happy (2017). Many of you might be familiar with the original massive 5 CD box set of the same name released in 2013.  I've been waiting for the vinyl version to come out.  It was finally released for RSD2017, but in a much slimmer version of 2 LP set. All songs clocking under 3 minutes gives you 28 tracks on 2LPs. Nothing compared to 134 tracks on the CD set.  Obviously this vinyl version will not do justice for what this compilation was intended for.  If you're planning to get this compilation then get the CD version and if you like it get this vinyl as part of a collection or to just have it on vinyl.  I'm a sucker for 80s indie-pop, twee pop, C86, Sarah label bands. If I encounter anything being released relating to these sound I just have to get it.  But mind you this vinyl edition is only for those fans who loves that sound and era.  #indipop #tweepop #c86 #scaredtogethappy #janglepop #80smusic

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz! (2009). Probably one of surprise and defining album of 2009.  I always had some reservations about YYYs. Something about them just didn't click on with me like The Strokes, Interpol or TVOTR of the New York scene at the time.  Maybe I just didn't like Karen, obviously for no reason at all. It's actually this album rather than their debut that caught me off guard.  The initial listen wasn't very impressive so I put it aside and then I start to hear 'Zero' everywhere I go.  Now once you hear enough of something you just get brainwashed and the song gets implanted in the back of your brain permanently.  Unintentionally you memorize the whole song from start to finish and all the ins and outs...that's why I don't tune into Billboard top 200 or something.  Anyways went back to the album and gave it an honest go at it, put my judgement aside for awhile and it was actually good.  They had some real good songwriting in there, nice hooks and melodies, but still keeping that punky hard edge. I'm now a fan of Nick Zinner but still holding off on Karen, don't know why, it's just me(can't even explain why). All things said this album probably is their best to me.  Many will choose their debut with more raw and instinctive sound, I still can't fully get into that one even to this day.  #yeahyeahyeahs #kareno #nickzinner #itsblitz #garagerock #newyorkmusic #zero #2000smusic #synthpunk

The Replacements - Let It Be (1984). I'm a real fan of these guys, love all their albums equally but of course this album stands out as one of the essential classics of rock music. Who would've thought this album will one day be among the greats? When you have heroes like these in your life then you want to know everything about them and get to the core of how these guys came to be.  There are lots of sources you can easily get your hands on but you want something more personal than just bios. This book is a must for The Replacements fans who wants to get to the core of their intimate personal lives to get an understanding of just how they came to be and what motivated to their music, addiction, success and tragedies. I finished it on Audible first and now I'm reading the book and it's really interesting and informative.  I can dig deeper into their minds and understand where they come from.  It's almost like reading some suspense novel which just shows you how interesting these guys are like even in real life.  Highly recommended! #thereplacements #troubleboys #paulwesterberg #letitbe #postpunk #iwilldare #bobmehr #musicbook

Nirvana - Nevermind (1991). I know, you're all sick of seeing this album on your timeline.  I'm not even a grunge fan and I hardly own that many grunge albums with the exception of Nirvana or Soundgarden.  Lots of people believe this album to be the number one album of the 90s. It's really a split between this and OK Computer. My choice will always be MBVs Loveless, but then that's just because of my taste, not objective at all.  What is your favorite of the 90s? Hope I get some real original suggestions here. #nirvana #nevermind #grunge #1990s #bestalbumsof1990s #kurtcobain
