Just fantastic.

If Neil ever got his act together and did an exhibition of all their nostalgia, I'm positive these should be in there, in a glass box protected by laser trip wires. A cute example of fandom.

Christ. This left-vs-right BS is mind numbing. You can't name a successful policy that wasn't at heart a progressive one. Everything else has been a waste.

Re: Disco 3 is 20 years old

Re: Lost

Nice read, Dog.

I think they're just enjoying treating EPs as mini themed albums. Hope it continues!
