hello all

Re: Your top 20 artists

Anyone a fan of the Magnetic Fields? I love their new album and just wanted to know which CD is the best of their triple CD "69 Love Songs." I only heard the first one and loved it. Anyone by any chance a Scissor Sisters fan. I've only heard two of their songs but both were amaaaaaaazing and would like to get some feedback on what the best song off their new album is. Thanks

Re: Your top 20 artists

Hey Tim, I'm an absolute Magnetic Fields fan (ranked #12)!!!
Their lastest LP is quiet good but I prefer the "69 love songs" by far (it's in my top 5 albums of all-time). My favourite one is the first disc. "All my little words" is for me one of the greatest song ever written.
Scissor Sisters is my favourite album of 2004 !!! All the songs are good, espacially "Laura", "Filthy/Gorgoeous", "Mary" and "The return to Oz" (with a wonderful guitar solo final !).

Re: Your top 20 artists

Thanks Dumbangel!!!!! The whole Scissor Sisters hype seems to be fading away here in the states. I can't even find their CD at the local record stores. Do you have any spare copies? Well they played a free show here in LA which I missed but they weren't even the headliners. As I said before the British have far better taste than us yankees. Keep up the good work and keep spreading the word and good music shall prevail.
