    What would you prefer your kit to look like? A page 3 tit?

    Normandy '44: The Battle Beyond D-Day

    The inflated egos & rivalry of Montgomery & Patton was almost a war within a war. Patton wanted to drive the British back to the Channel & claim all for himself when he was on his high after liberating lightly defended western France, but bad wars are shortened by bad people like Patton. The British & Canadians around Caen took on the baddest Nazi Jugend & Ost Front SS vets.

    Sabbath were metal, Zep weren't. Ironic that Tony never really liked the description.

    Speakers like Sennheiser HD800S

    The trouble is HD650s don't sound like HD800S at all. HD650s are quite warm & soft with chubby bass - a different thing.

    Normandy '44: The Battle Beyond D-Day

    It is excellently told. Ben Macintyre's research is solid & his words are uncommonly lucid. His books are fascinating reading. The book cover of the story of the D-Day spies - 'Double Cross' - has a quote calling it 'Deeply Moving' - which it is.

    System Destroying Tracks

    Massive Attack's Mezzanine & 100th Window. At the other end of the spectrum, Gilmour's strained vocals & sympathetic guitar in 'What do you want from me' on Division Bell breaks a bright system. Hard bright treble is perhaps far worse than a stodgy, resonant bass...

    Sad about Stu Adamson. Great songs.
