  1. Album of the Year 2017

    Having had a few months to think and having listened to it a few times Everything Now is a strange album. It has a few songs that stand up with their best work - Everything Now, Creature Comforts, Put Your Money On Me, We Don't deserve Love, but it also has some huge clunkers on it - Peter Pan, Chemistry and there's one in between EN and CC that's so non-descript I cannot even remember what it's called or what it sounds like. It's too uneven to get anywhere near my top ten.
  2. Football 17/18

    Defending should always be about reading the game and anticipation. Players like Maldini and Baresi are considered amongst the best ever because they rarely had to make a tackle.
  3. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Having seen Queen last night I've been forced to rethink my gigs of the year and Radiohead have been pushed down. 1. The National - Hammersmith Apollo 2. Arcade Fire - Castlefield Bowl 3. Chic - The Pyramid (I'm annoyed at myself for forgetting this) 4. Radiohead - The Pyramid 5. Queen with Adam Lambert - The O2
  4. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Yeah I said to Mrs Jass as we were walking out last night that there was badger-related beef between the two. Shame, because they would absolutely destroy it.
  5. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    We were talking about Queen on here a week or two ago and it inspired me. Surprised Mrs Jass with tickets to see them at the O2 last night as an early Christmas present, she loves them, I'm not a huge Queen fan but know the hits and figured it would be a laugh... Gotta say, it was incredible. Every bit as ridiculous, OTT, self-indulgent (May doing a ten minute solo on top of a giant robot hand), bombastic and camp as you would expect it to be. Played for two and a half hours and I think there were only two or three songs I didn't recognise, haven't enjoyed a gig that much in ages. Adam Lambert is no Freddie but he does a pretty good job. I have no doubt after watching them that they'd smash the Pyramid in either a headliner or legends slot.
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Within ten working days according to See, so most likely not.
  7. The Gaming Thread

    It's on my Christmas list.
  8. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Peter Kay's entire 18 month tour has been cancelled die to "family reasons". I'm disappointed as I had tickets for it, but there must be something pretty serious to make him cancel everything. Hopefully he and his family are ok.
  9. The Gaming Thread

    I thought I was going to end up killing him and then Robo-Hitler coming back as the final boss like the original WS games. I was disappointed.
  10. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Hoping that YYY’s will be doing a few dates of their own next year. Got tickets for them and LCD at APE but would love to see them do a longer set at their own indoor show.
  11. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Pretty sure they sold out two/three nights at the Arena this time last year.
  12. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Think it's a second gate that opens an hour or so earlier than the main one. You'd think Cure fans would be looking to stay out of sunlight.
  13. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Unlikely I'd say, The Cure usually sell very well. I'd expect this to sell out.
  14. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Think I'm out at those prices. I enjoyed the Cure but not enough to drop 70 notes on seeing them again, especially as I'll need to be choosy about what I see next summer. I've also seen Interpol and Goldfrapp in the last few months too.
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Ooooh that Cure day is tempting, although having already bought a shit-tonne of day tickets for next year I'm not sure I can justify another. Plus I saw the Cure last year and much as I enjoyed it I don't feel that I need to see them again. I need to see a ticket price before making a decision.
