Obviously, PSB don't fit with my other recommendations. I was getting greedy.

Thanks.

Yeah, I would recommend more folks to revisit Slowdive, The Chameleons, Sigur Ros, and, of course, the Pet Shop Boys...

No thanks, PSB are exactly the kind of 80's pop I can't stand any more.  :P

I will post a few new lists, each one with Slowdive in, maybe that will help!  :lol:

The Tor project is a non-profit organisation that conducts research and development into online privacy and anonymity. It is designed to stop people – including government agencies and corporations – learning your location or tracking your browsing habits.

Based on that research, it offers a technology that bounces internet users' and websites' traffic through "relays" run by thousands of volunteers around the world, making it extremely hard for anyone to identify the source of the information or the location of the user.

Its software package – the Tor browser bundle – can be downloaded and used to take advantage of that technology, with a separate version available for Android smartphones.

PS - the recent Ride comeback album is also solid, though the best track is on an EP.

Thanks for a fine work! I have to say, I am not too surprised about the results although I would have loved if SLowdive made it the top 10 :)

Tied for 17th are the 2 bands with 12 votes each...

The Mission
U2

I love U2 too even though that is uncool. Still, the one time I saw them was mid-90s from the Pop album, worst concert I ever attended. But then again, I don't get out much.

I really need to listen to The Mission - obviously I have been missing out on something special!

Tied for 14th are the 3 bands with 13 votes each...

Mogwai
Pixies
Smashing Pumpkins

Mogwai is wonderful - though I would enjoy more experimentation from them and fewer soundtracks - but hey their classic stuff is delightful.

I am curious if any of the those Pumpkins fans like the latter stuff, as opposed to the classic albums.

Well, looks like we are basically ready for the Top 10-ish Results!...
