Ultimate Album – The Sleeve Notes

And that is that. Done, finished, the end. I don’t think any of us knew how Ultimate Album would turn out. Indeed we didn’t even know if you good people would even bother to vote. We just assumed you all had lives. Shows how wrong we were. I guess before we close this little project …

Ultimate Album Track 9

Well that was so very kind of you. Knowing this weekend was my birthday weekend, you have gifted me with the present that my track 8 selection of The Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’ was the resounding winner for 8th position on Ultimate Album. I know that isn’t strictly true. And if it was then …

Ultimate Album – Track 8 – Punk, Metal and Fanny

Well, Anna is one pleased lady. When she submitted Blind Melon’s ‘No Rain’ it was added with the comment “It will never win” But it shows what we know. Often songs we think are 100% bankers fall at the first day, and those we think will flounder and flap come through fighting. This applies to …

Ultimate Album – Track 4 – The Pre Middle

Well that was quick – Ultimate Album is only 4 weeks old yet we are already a third of the way through. In just 8 weeks time it will all be over. Of course if I had a positive head on it also means that there are still another 32 tracks to get through. That …

Ultimate Album – Track 3: The Magic Number

When we were trying to figure out if Ultimate Album would work or not, the one thing that we knew would be certain was how difficult it would be to pick a track three. Quick, think of an album you love. The chances are the 3rd track is a absolute stormer. Before we move on …
