Especially with Pink Moon, the bare bones nature of the music means it can never be dated

Yes. He could have benefitted from a big UK hit single in the early 70s. In terms of getting recognition.

Plus free CDs:

PJ & Duncan - Our Radio Rocks :lol:
Parlophone's 'A Flavour of The Label' (some good stuff on here and a Gorillaz game!)

It took some time for me to appreciate Illiois, as well as Sufjan Stevens in general. It's always a bit strange to start liking one artist or the other after some time of not digging his or her work. I don't really know what exactly happened but towards the end of 2015 "Carrie and Lowell" became one of my favourites of the year and I started to explore his other work - and out of all, "Michigan" and "Illiois" seem to be the best ones.

David Bowie - Blackstar (★)

Although I'm not big on digipaks, the packaging is gorgeous. My only criticism, or rather concern is the stickers on the shrinkwrap. Whether to apply them to the actual packaging or to cut around them and put them in the case.

Not exactly bought, but I was presented with the yellow Parklife 2xLP, which is an incredible gift - sounds amazing!

Blackstar and To Pimp A Butterfly are on list - hopefully I will get my hands on them pretty soon

Back in the 90s, you wouldn't have got much change from £50 if buying such albums on CD.
