Listeners, any thoughts on the music? What is your favorite 2012 album by a male artist?


  1. I have a special love for Tindersticks. My favorite album is Curtains. It reminds me of those summer nights spent with my lover, lying in bed, listening the beautiful, melancholy voice of Stuart again and again. I like your blog, Chris.

    1. @axionyreaxion: finally someone likes these songs ( ; Curtains album? I have only just started listening to Tindersticks, so your suggestion is much appreciated.
      Good to hear you are enjoying my blog, come back again, and feel free to follow ( :

  2. In fact, I follow you for a while. I'm a big fan of 80's music, post punk, dark, new age. Slowly, you opened my mind to new songs. I thank you for that. I wish you are well and your back heal. Hugs!

    1. @Analía: 80s, eh? Well I plan to listen to all "The Cure" albums, already heard the 1st and 2nd albums so far on spotify, so going to post a few of my favorites by The Cure later on. (I'm beginning to get tired of posting new music). Nice of you to think of my health. Do you have a blog to visit?

  3. I have nothing interesting to say to have a blog or perseverance required. But I like to comment on blogs I follow. I am a big mouth who barely speaks english. That's why I had not spoken in your blog so far. I look forward that you travel to the 80's music! My back is a mess too, so I understand your pain. Hug.

    1. @Analía: Get well soon. I recommend going to a physiotherapist, helped my back improve! Hug


What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
