Most people just register and then forget about it. Only around 15 are regulars. If you go on any other forums or site maybe you could give it a mention.

I couldn't choose my favorite album, its like asking me to choose between my figurative children, but I can safely say that Blind Melon's self titled is superb, as well as Weezer's Blue album, or Staring at the Sea by the Cure (Yes, I know it isn't a proper album, but it is still amazing), but a favorite is nowhere to be found. In response to never seeing anyone on the site, well, we are from some dievrse places, so far I have seen at least 4 different time zones (UK, Pennsylvania, California, and Brazil), so it seems that we are just awake at different hours, yeah, that about explains it. <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

Best NON-SMITHS album? Oof, that's tricky... I'd be tempted to say 'Grace' by Jeff Buckley but I actually don't know.

There are loads of albums I absolutely love but then they aren't all perfect - they all have slight blips. And then others, like The Strokes and The Killers etc are amazing, but they aren't ones I can really feel for, if y'know what I mean. I actually love 'Gold' by Ryan Adams, and 'Is This Desire?' by PJ Harvey is just beautiful... *worships at temple of Peej* but none of them mean as much as The Smiths, so it's hard to decide which is my favourite *ponders* I think I do have to go for 'Grace', which is odd - despite it being like an absolute masterpiece I never really thought as that of being my favourite album before!

EDIT: Aaagh, how could I forget Jackson Browne?! My second favourite non-Smiths album would have to be 'Late For the Sky', every song on that album is gorgeous.

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

Wilco - A Ghost Is Born is the first new album in a long time that I have developed a love of. Most new albums these days seem to lack a certain something that puts them above being just another rock album, but it's absolutely great. Reminds me of The Beatles and Radiohead at once (with country influences obviously).

A few years ago I loved all the old Offspring stuff but I can't get into it now.
