I'm giving this five stars because you've listened to enough music not to fill the top of your chart up with Beatles albums.

Probably high time I rated this pal. I remember back in the day when you wrote a comment on the Ys album page saying that it sounded like NMH only for me to shoot you down in flames - glad you came round in the end! A couple of LPs sent over the Atlantic and a few years later your overall is a thing of beauty, with buckets of common ground. Great stuff as always :)
