You can Hold Your Head Up and be proud to cast the first vote for Argent. Smile

It would have been a Tragedy if Argent didn't get a vote.

Bearing that in mind, I'll have to give my Talk Talk "Spirit of Eden" album another listen. Thumbs Up

I went with Tubular Bells, though I do particularly like Tales of Mystery and Imagination and Days of Future Past a lot too.

Mike Oldfield. The album is part of my DNA. Wink

 
Have you ever wondered what it would be like hear the sound of the Tubular Bells chiming at sunrise on top of Hergest Ridge at the Ommadawn of a new day? Looking out to sea from the top of the ridge, you'd be able to see the sun casting its delicate Incantations of light across a calm Platinum silver sea. In the distance, you might be lucky enough to see the QE2 sailing Five Miles Out from Southampton, where the lucky passengers are temporarily escaping the world's Crises by  embarking on a voyage of Discovery to exotic tropical Islands. A voyage aboard a luxury cruise liner promises to be an Earth Moving experience of a lifetime, where you could sail to the exotic island of Amarok in Indonesia, or witness a tropical monsoon when the Heavens Open over Java. It's almost as exotic as the astronauts who journeyed to the Moon aboard gleaming silver rockets, which glinted in the Sun like Tubular Bells II of stainless steel. As the space travellers journeyed into orbit around the Moon, they'd hear The Songs of Distant Earth aboard their Voyager spacecraft. Maybe they'd listen to Tubular Bells III and the distinctive sound of Mike Oldfield's Guitars, whilst the tolling of The Millennium Bell on the album announces the beginning of a new century. The Tres Lunas (or three lunar astronauts) would be travelling between Light + Shade as their spacecraft orbits the Moon, where the Music of the Spheres can be heard across space and time. Maybe one day in the not too distant future, a spacecraft will land a Man on the Rocks of Mars, before the long journey home and a welcome Return to Ommadawn here on Earth. Smile


Actually, if I were at Hergest Ridge, I would more likely feel like listening to the Hergest Ridge album over Tubular Bells

I didn't listen to Talk Talk before, so I couldn't compare it with the pop stuff. Maybe this is why it works with me.

Yes, you need to. It's about as far away from synth-pop as you can get. It's also the greatest album ever made imo.
You need to allocate an hour of time when you won't be disturbed, dim the lights, put your best headphones on and listen. Prepare to be amazed.

I haven't listened to Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden album in a long long time, but I will do now, although it won't be Today. Smile

It's Such a Shame The Party's Over, but Life's What You Make It and you can still enjoy this great song Today from Talk Talk. Smile
