I'm not so much listening to as watching and listening to Dara o Briain on YouTube, which made me laugh a lot.

Iron Maiden - Senjutsu (full album)

I'm only half way through the first track so far so I'll hold off on any lengthy comments but from what I've heard so far it's got the potential to be my favourite album of theirs to date; not something you'll often hear genuinely meant in reference to a band that have been releasing albums for coming up on 45 years.

Talking Heads Live in Rome 1980

So fucking amazing I don't even mind the 1980 sound quality!

Senjutsu (see above) is less instantly recognisable as an Iron Maiden album than any other I can think of although occasional elements betray the authorship of the tracks - that said my Maiden knowledge is less than encyclopaedic.

I'm going to be critical now although as I've said previously I rate this album highly - more highly than any other Irons offering I've heard in its entirety.

My usual opinion of Maiden albums, like many albums in truth, is that there are one or two decent tracks and a lot of filler but this is not the case here. That said the guitar breaks do on occasion have the feel of being dropped into a slot rather than being integral. Death of the Celts sucks ass for the most part and The Parchment has dull stretches in its 12:40 playtime which you can't help but feel could have been avoided. 8 of the tracks are between 7:10 and 12:40 while the other 2 are ~4:00 and ~5:00 though you could easily cut 2:15 off the beginning of Hell On Earth without damaging it in the slightest plus another 0:30 or so in the middle from 6:50 to 7:20 and between 1:30 and as much as another 2:30 off the playout and it'd still come in at something around 6 or 7 minutes.

I don't imagine that the majority of the album tracks will get much airplay (not that they ever would have done).

T'pau - Bridge of Spies

It's been a long time since I listened to the album in full but I'm struggling to see how this version is 'expanded'.

I'm listening to Clare Teal's programme on Jazz FM, as I have done nearly every Sunday evening since she was unceremoniously dumped by Radio 2 a couple of years ago... but I was slightly thrown today when it started with the theme tune to It's A Knockout. It's actually a jolly little number by Herb Alpert called "Bean Bag", but (as Clare acknowledged) it's almost impossible to listen to it without thinking of the programme.

And since the man who presented it for most of my childhood was later convinced of child sexual abuse, it's now got unfortunate associations that Herb Alpert never intended. Can't be helped, I suppose.

She's done it again! She's started with the theme tune to This Is Your Life - or "Gala Performance" by the Laurie Johnson Orchestra, to give its proper title. Perhaps this will become a regular thing.
