        All great songs. Probably not the same top 10 list I would come up with but 21 Century Schizoid Man would also be my number 1 if for no other reason than it was my first real hook to King Crimson when I was like 7 years old.

        Honestly it hurts my head to try to come up with a top 10. Too many good ones from all eras.

        My personal #3 of KC is Cadence and Cascade. Great overall song, vocals and instrumental background is perfectly blended together, creating a really haunting sound. #1 and #2 is still Schizoid Man and Epitaph of course.

        I stream about 5000 tracks a month, with about 3000ish of those on Apple Music. 3*13=$39, which is more than my subscription cost.

        Tidal supposedly pays the most. Apple can afford to pay more because they have no free tier, and they're a late entrant to the market and need to make up ground, so they can better exclusives if they pay better.

        From what I've read they aren't doing super duper financially. As long as they're the only lossless game in town (will change soon) they probably have no motivation to put resources elsewhere

        I think Spotify premium can sound plenty good already. If they even added Roon integration I think tons of people would jump ship. Lossless would be nice too of course.

        @Azteca sorry to be vague above, Spotify is already doing beta trials for lossless. I'll likely jump back to it when and if that launches at a similar price

        Yes, there was a news item. Happened on a plane. Exploding might be an exasperation, but they certainly burned and hurt the woman wearing them. melted into the carpet.

        Oh wait, I just saw the next two or three profile posts about... exploding headphones <Blush>

        There's always been commerce operating in Rock, but the intensity of the forces targeting teens to buy a lot of this crap is unprecedented and insane. Don't get me wrong, Toxic is an incredible song, but that is an exception. So much of it is disposable and cynical at heart. The opposite of Neil Young.

        @DigMe Thanks for the tip! I've got a history with buying cables but I gave up and sold off everything some time ago. Been using the stock HD800 balanced cable ever since. I took the plunge on a balanced cable from Impact Audio, will be interesting to see if I can hear any difference with this one :)

        @Changeling Cool. I don't know that you'll hear any difference or not but it's a great cable. Be prepared to wait. Lindsay makes them to order and mine shipped at right about 3 weeks after ordering.

      I don't mind Blackstar instrumentally but honestly I think Bowie's singing sounds horrible on it. "In the vill-ar of Ormen" it's grating.

        Maybe it was an artistic choice. The fact that his voice sounds a bit off works with the sound of the album in my opinion.
