  1. For review,Hackskeptic, I nominate Scritti’s Cupid and Psyche, and an absolute lost classic 45, the Motors at their best with Love and Loneliness

    • Cupid & Psyche is definitely on the radar. I was listening to it this morning getting ready for work. The world was poptastic and the usually grim wake up was unusually sprightly.
