I am liking Antics better tonight than I did last night. I was hoping for a song that immediately demanded that I learn the lyrics and melody so I could sing it in the shower but really that rarely happens. although I did listen to NYC repeatedly upon first hearing it and none of this album makes me want to do that but what can you expect. that almost never happens.

I like "Slow Hands" and as always I like Banks' vocals on everything quite a bit and tonight I'm actually hearing a little melody in the verses where last night that seemed only to occur in the refrains such as they are.

I don't know why I insist on melody. I am old-fashioned when it comes to pop music. you can replace melody with striking vocal style and I will like it but give me striking vocal style plus melody and I am putty in your hands.

I did not go to Virgin to buy the cd. I supported my local record store which performs the invaluable service of offering streamed online samples of a large proportion of the music they sell. for those of you out there running your own record stores, take note that this service alone (well and the fact that they are two blocks from my house) has spurred me to spend an embarrassing amount of money there. but I will admit that when they don't have what I want I do go to amazon. one can't be utterly pure.
