    Sounds great, and it's kind of all-inclusive.

    I really like this album, it's very rich in sound and production, maybe it's going to dominate my Madness Top 10.
    The instrumentation of Blackbird sounds like a Mowtown song from the 70s, I can almost hear it, I can almost sing it..but I still haven't figured out what it is.
    "Baby, Don't Change Your Mind", or something like that.

    That's great! The chimey bits remind me of ’The Night’ by Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons. Don't know if that's what you're thinking of...

    I just googled Blackbird. They wrote it about meeting Amy Winehouse.

    I still don't know...maybe it's Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay, but it wouldn't be the first time I hear SOTDOTB in another song.
    Not because it's my favourite song, but there's something about that combination of music notes, like a mathematical formula that defines the principle of all pop music.

    Short but sweet. I couldn't stop nodding my head to the music.

    Funny, this week it actually is a Gladys Knight & The Pips song - a new remix, to be precisely.

    Goodness, he's not holding back, is he? But there's no other way to do it without losing the essence of the song, I guess.

    My FNDTW is a traditional retro-something


    One thing I've learnt from the soapchat music threads and my personal mass YouTube sessions is that there's a lot of retro (any genre) coming from the US.
    They may not be Billboard champions but there's definitely a taste for everything other than the typical country and R&B music that has dominated the US charts for so many decades.

    Oh, is it a him? I assumed it was a them. I think I came across him/them/it on a 'Best of 2018' list somewhere.

    Ha! I typed them as I was listening to the song and then when I found him on Spotify I read who he was.

    That song reminded me of a band from a few years back which I couldn't remember.

    Now I have remembered :D

    Have you been listening to the full album?

    I'm really enjoying it.
