Yeah, it's now finished apart from some small tweaks (links to open in new tabs etc).

If you notice any errors / strange behavior, please let me know. :)

Mostly because I'm a novice with these things. :lol:

I expect I'll be working mostly with the forum layout/style (it's a shame that this present style cannot be transferred to the new board).

Upgrade to phpBB 3.2

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Even Damon's relatively duff solo album hit number 2. That also had slightly worse reviews than Merrie Land. Why didn't these mixed reviews and people streaming music keep that one out of the top 20?

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

they are purposely avoiding picking up on anything that faintly resembles a groove, as they churn out unfinished and unfocused tunes If you ask me, the two singles sound almost too polished production wise (I miss the rough guitars of the debut album!). Of course the rest of the Merrie Land may be ...
