We are music enthusiasts.
We don’t write about music we don’t like, we don’t listen to music we don’t like, we don’t attend concerts we don’t like. But we sometimes write about “not so good” music from artists we really like. Most great artists have a diverse body of work, and it’s important to shed a light over different parts of their legacy.
We hope that people will be inspired by the postings and that it motivates them to take a trip to their local record store (or web shop) and buy their albums, their DVDs, read about them in books or magazines and see them in concert whenever possible.
Enjoy our posts, say hello, leave comments, share, talk amongst yourselves and check out the fantastic musical past and present.

Why so serious? Well, this is a serious matter…
These are my chosen records, the list is dynamic. That means that it changes from day to day. The top 10 is fairly constant, but they switch places. My lists are always snapshots of my mind on a particular moment.
