Yes, but it's how you handle the rebuff that shows true class JD. :)
"DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!?!?"
I know, it was probably a rare class-free moment. The glass is half-full in my world most of the time though.

Southerner? where I come from Woking was considered dangerously northern.

All this is based on the records i was most passionate about during the decade...rather than with the benefit of time, which would be a little different

70's - PIL - metal box

80's - Talk Talk - Spirit of Eden

90's - my bloody valentine - loveless OR Boards of Canada - music has the right to children

2000's - Cinematic Orchestra - Everyday OR Fourtet - Rounds

10's - Radiohead TKOL RMX - but basically impossible to choose given how much music I am now listening to!!!

Small point - the current decade still has a while to go so it's a bit hard to nominate a favourite album :) .
Ya can't beat Aussie logic. :grin:

Babylon's Burning - now that's what I call a riff :rockout:
The whole album is full of riffs. These boys could really play, and for anyone who loves rock, I totally recommend it.

Try tracks like "Savage Circle", "Something That I Said", "Criminal Mind", and of course, "Babylon's Burning" on Spotify, then you'll want the whole album.
