I quite like most songs on the Vision Thing album but somehow the overal feel of the album is not compleet. does that make any sence? It's funny, when the album first came out I remember one of my mates saying completely the opposite - that overall it was their best album, but didn't have their bes...

Re: Best Lyrics!

Fourth Album Tracklist

Okay, bit of wishful thinking here. Let's say you had the New Songs (everything unreleased after Temple of Love '92 ) all laid out and ready to be engineered and blended and technical-wizardry'd into an album. In what order would you put them to make aforesaid album? And, if there's a reason, why? F...

@ Herr Blast : it just seems obvious to me, following on as it does from Nine While Nine which is so completely about the day you realise they're not there for you any more. Some Kind of Stranger has all that talk about broken promises and realising, in retrospect, that it was never going to work at...

Dumdums are bullets modified somehow to make a right f**king mess of whatever they hit; they don't just damage, they absolutely mangle. I associate them with gangs making their own in grubby basements, but that could be one too many dodgy cyberpunk RPGs talking.

These are all common sense, to me. If labels rush out artists before they're ready and sign up reams of bands without a longsight scheme in place they will have artists fall by the wayside and will have poor sales on their investment. This isn't due to the demon of downloading but due to short sigh...

The usual one-shot theory: Von has to record a "straight up, down the line, housewife-type AOR" single to stick on the compilation.
