Loved the last couple of months with Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica releasing an album with 2 weeks of each other. Bliss

 I've only recently gotten into CG, had never really listened to him before. I've had "Camp" on repeat a fair amount recently. Couldn't really get into his latest effort though. Maybe a few more listens will help.

 It's a big departure from his other work, but it's a grower. Helps if you divorce it from his previous albums and take it as a standalone.

I had to!  I spent most of the year listening to Prince and weeping.

You might like the Anna Meredith one, Fatsy.  

Although I'm always a bit crap at predicting your taste.  You're so mauve.

The only new music I listen to is usually suggested by posters on here so I concur with suggestions above, particularly the Bowie and Radiohead albums.

Am also enjoying The Soft Bounce by Beyond The Wizards Sleeve at the moment (yes, I know it sounds like I just made that up).

That is all.
