Old Ideas in Guardian Best Albums of 2012

See the article:

It's only June but this year has already seen some outstanding releases. Here is our top 20 [...] "All I've got to put in a song is my own experience," Laughing Len said this year. But what experience: songs about death, misanthropy and lust with the wisdom and humour that comes from 77 extraordinary years on this planet.
Though they lose some brownie points for 'Laughing Len' :roll: Lazy...
I'm chained to the old masquerade...

My son in law always teases me with the "Laughing Lenny", so must have been around for a while!!
Reminds me of what some people (obviously not fans) used to say in the 60s, about selling razor blades with Leonard's albums.
As we say in Ireland "f*ck the begrudgers" :lol: :lol: :lol:
Said son in law and my daughter live right beside Croke Park, and tonight are being subjected to Westlife and Jedward!!!
Suspect they wished it was "Laughing Lenny"!! ;-)
