Urban Hyms is solid. Never ever get bored of listening to it.

And people need to pay more attention to early Verve. History could be their best song.

But the 1st album is soooooooo brilliant. One of my favorite writing cds. He did See You In The Next One at the acoustic show I saw, and put 30 second pauses in the silent parts, then he'd kick back into it. It was perfection.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I wish I could comment on Ashcroft's new one, but I still haven't gotten around to buying it yet... lazy.  I have heard "Check the Meaning."

A piece from the auto-biography of Pawbloe:
"When I was in college, I dated a girl for about 2 years.  We broke up... well, she broke up with me.  For about a month or so all I listened to was 'A Northern Soul' and (more importantly) the song 'History.'

'Because it's you and me, we're (sniff) history
There ain't nothing left to say (sob)'"

All jokes aside, that's a true story.
