    Just let me say that I think Courtney Love has recorded some reasonable music and Hole's Celebrity Skin album in particular was not bad.

    Josh pyke is pretty cool. I saw him live but he was kind of a backing band. I might go see him soon though 'cos his new stuff is pretty special.

    Ladytron yo! Electro/pop kind of like a faster MGMT with more solid beats and female vocals (occasional male). I thought they were pretty tight and if you fancy this kind of music I definitely recommend checking them out.

    Rincewind , would it be fair to say , that your taste in music is highly questionable ?

    On another note I finally completed my Kings of leon collection having now all the albums and I specifically got the OG releases for Holy roller novacaine extended and Where nobody knows although unfortunately I'm unsure if they have extra tracks on their later albums (I don't really care though seeing as their last two albums have gone downhill.)

    I prefer to use the adjective "catholic". (With a lower case 'c' of course).

    Even among religions, the various protestant churches have much better music than the Catholics, to the point where Ralph Vaughan Williams (a descendant of Charles Darwin, and an atheist himself) would even write for the Anglicans.

    I guess it depends on your bent. I like Bach but I'm not a Lutheran.

    However, I was thinking of the nonreligious sense of catholic, meaning "broad in scope". I have diverse musical tastes with classical, opera, folk, rock, jazz, blues, rap, and other genres sprinkled throughout my collection.

    I think the broader one's musical tastes, the greater the chance that someone else will find some part of it "questionable".

    I understood what sense you meant by catholic

    I've always said that you don't need god for heavenly music.

    Gorillaz! Demon days is the album and it's well worth it. I also heard that Blink 182 are getting back together, personally I don't really care because I don't like them but people here might. All I can hope that is that Blink reuniting leads to a break up of +44 and AVA

    Anybody here a fan of Sublime? I think they are pretty cool. It's like jazz but with more hardcore lyrics. Their genre sways. But yeah I really like "The wrong way" It's a song by them. But I don't like the video of it.

    I really like some music from 'Jersey Boys' as well.
