    • "And now for something completely different."

      I've had Modern Blues by the Waterboys on high rotation lately.

      I always rated 'Whole of the Moon' as the best 'total' Pop song ever: Music, lyric, clip, effects.
      So I've been on board with them since the 80's.

      Their 2015 album is not in that class but I like some of Mike Scott's messages and stories as road songs.

    • I like those - hadn't heard the 2015 album before, but it sounds solid. I recently got their 2017 album Out of All This Blue, which is a double album - kind of a mixed bag. I'm not sure Mike Scott has grown much over the years - he's still writing songs about being someone's boyfriend, and this batch, at least, doesn't have the poignancy of his 80's and 90's material - turns out that was the Sea.
