I rated this a 3?  I don't remember doing that.  Must have been a long time ago when I was still young and ignorant.  I apologize.  I'm now older a somewhat less ignorant.  Raising that to an 8.
Spread Love not STDs

this album was the soundtrack to my romance with my now husband, John. awesome! {#Hug}
 
I've always wondered about the meaning of this song. No lyrics but a very evocative title.
Assuming that it regards the mithology entailed in Homer's "Odisseys", what could we speculate about it?
Is it the song a description of the trip that Penelope has taken after such a long waiting for his husband in Ithaca?
Or is Penelope's entire waiting process for Ulysses return itself just a long, immaginative journey that she has been through for 20 years?
I LOVE AIR.

For me this is one of the best tracks from 1990 to 2013. It has many dimensions and uses old and new styles with great success.
Don't care when it was recorded, if I am hearing it for the first time it is 'new music'.  Radio Paradise has introduced me to so much music that is new to me; some recorded now, some recorded 30 years ago.

This old vs. new crap is just that: crap.  Doesn't matter if you're talking about people or music.

Start writing English and don't be such a rude metalfitter. At least Andy put some thought into his writing, which is an order of magnitude preferable to folk who spend all of 5 seconds writing SFAs (stupid feckin' acronyms). It's posts like his that enliven these fora and make readers think.

It's probably fair to say that most music, made anywhere in the world, has moved beyond that point a long time ago.

There are more selections on the established side of the menu. A person just venturing past hamburgers may indeed have a more ravenous appetite than a well traveled gourmand, but probably not a broader palette. Bon appetit!
