Haven’t listened to those last two albums in a very long time but they still have strong memories also if Bye Bye Bye wasn’t the best thing to come out of the boyband era of pop music I don’t know what is

Okay maybe I like It’s Gonna Be Me slightly more? But it’s still *NSYNC and still off of the same album so maybe it’s just that No Strings Attached was peak boy band

Aerial is such an amazing album. The whole “Sky of Honey” suite blows my mind, the way it portrays the cosmic beauty you can find in everyday life.

Edit: This is the best thing ever written about that album, really opened my eyes: http://k-punk.abstractdynamics.org/archives/006862.html

Yes! I would’ve put the suite as my favourite ‘track’ but the Rolf Harris cameo is no longer tolerable.

Excellent article as well.
