Good times! My CD has finally arrived!

Yes, my copy of "Ignore This" finally arrived today! So I am finally getting to hear all the songs in full for the first time - and of course I can't stop playing it. I will post my review on Saturday as I'm going to really get into the songs before writing my review.

What I will say is that from what I've heard so far, it's a stunning and varied collection of songs and from looking at the lyrics, it's very clear that Salem has continued to develop as a very clever lyricist. Apart from the obvious "Keep On Walking" and "Brooklyn Sun", my favourite songs at the moment are "Virgin Mary", "4 O'Clock", and the extremely catchy "I'm So Happy", I can't get that tune out of my head and I think it will be a massive singalong at his concerts this year.

By the way, thanks to everyone who's already voted in my "favourite track" poll. If you haven't voted yet then please do so!!

I also have listened to the whole album today and need to say that "Virgin Mary" totally blew me away! What a track!

Yes it is an outstanding track, isn't it. Very, very catchy. You'll need to let me know what you think of the rest of the tracks too...
