What Are You Listening To?
Steve Rothery's The Ghosts of Pripyat - Pripyat being a radioactive ghost city in the Ukraine. Around 49,000 people were evacuated en masse a day after the Chernobyl disaster. It took two days to move everyone out and it's been empty ever since. Hectic. Interesting to see how nature reclaims her territory.

The title track ...

An album I always return to when I am done listening to everything else - The Doobie Brothers - Takin' it to the Streets. This album just sits so easy on the ear. And yet musically it's quite complex. Just listen to Mr. Tiran Porter's bass parts. Sheer wizardry. Wheels of Fortune & For Someone Special remain my favourite tracks.

Bass is brilliant in this - https://youtu.be/qUSPf9VfJD8
And the other one - incidentally written by the bass player as well - https://youtu.be/ZavILfiYhiU

Uriah Heep - The Magician's Birthday - a trip down memory lane. And a real trippy lane it is too.

^Fantastic bass! “Takin’ it to the Streets” is an instant good mood maker, but track after track of Michael MacDonald solo is a different story IMHO! I’ve been trying to listen to his new album and am finding it quite difficult – there’s a roll of credits worthy of a movie, a huge list of personnel and production people and great music and arrangements, but that voice is just too strident or something – forced – can’t listen to him. The album is getting kudos from all over the place – maybe I’m just a Philistine.

Try - Tales from Topographic Oceans - be warned - make sure you have the time and patience to sit through the whole thing. Probably the most complex album I have ever heard. But my favourite remains 'Going for the One'. A stunning album.

I agree about MM. He gets a bit much after a while but his collaboration with the Doobies just works for me.

I've heard that Tales is a bit self indulgent, but I will give it a listen.

I actually liked CTTE and I think it is great. Fragile also has some songs on it that I like. Yes seems to be growing on me.
