I also love Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds"; I can't remember when I have listened to anything that made me laugh so much!
I particularly like the manner in which the hero, fleeing from the massacre, finds time to romantically reflect on the seasons and reminisce about his bird, (who has very sensibly run away and got on a ship without him):
"My life will be forever autumn, now you're not here".

About 3 years back I treated myself to a Sonos wireless music system, and a mini server so I could have all of my cds playing whatever, wherever, whenever.

It came with an offer to subscribe to Napster (now Rhapsody) for £5 a month with a free trial. The CD collection now rarely gets a look in, and there is always something new to listen to or try. It's a bit like the digital photgraphy revolution - just like it costs nothing to take a picture, it costs me nothing to try out some new music, and the quality is much better than I expected.

So what's the catch? I can't get near it because the kids always seem to want to play their music wherever I am!

You were selling that so well right 'til the last. I prefer to leave 'One Direction' where they are, thank you!

Are you sure it's not "One Dimension"??

As a huge Floyd fan (and I was at the O2 when Gilmour played that ONE Wall show) I would say try Dutch Gothic Rock group "Within Temptation", my favourite by far at the moment, see what you think!

Sharon Whassername is very lovely but the music is extremely Evanescence. I like Evanescence but there's no use in having two of them. Doubtless Mike will steal their entire discography in a nanosecond and we'll give 'em a go.

Personally, my life will not be complete until I have heard a rendition of "Skyfall" sung by Alan Partridge. :lol: :lol:

We tried a Within Temptation album yesterday and after a promising start, we all voted that we'd had enough of the lass wailing after about three quarters of it.
I tried to introduce the workshop to Metallica and failed even tried sneaking some in on some compilation albums and they were deleted as well

I've given up trying to educate the workshop in to the heavier side of music ( cue one of them replying it isn't music)
