- U2: ALL THAT YOU CAN’T LEAVE BEHIND: 2000: 4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: U2 goes back to making U2 albums after the stinker Pop in 1997. Like The Joshua Tree the stronger songs seem to be at the beginning- Beautiful Day, Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of, Elevation and Walk On. A fine return to form by one of my favorite bands.
- LL COOL J :ALL WORLD: GREATEST HITS: 1996: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: I Can’t Live Without My Radio, Rock The Bells, I Need Love, Going Back To Cali [one of my favorite songs of the 1980’s} Big Ole Butt, Mama Said Knock You Out, Around The Way Girl- highlight this excellent greatest hits of the first decade of LL Cool J’s career. I can’t say that I have kept up with him since then but this is a good and fun compilation.
also listened to last Sunday’s Celtic Crush-on The Loft- Larry Kirwan’s three hour Christmas special.
