As always, good music is discovered in bunches, and I just came across 5 great albums recently. The best of these has to be Sparks' Hello Young Lovers. Rarely do you find a band having as much fun just experimenting with the possibilities of music.

If you haven't heard of Sparks, the best way to describe them is Queen-ish. However, that association does them a disservice because Sparks actually predate Queen, and it's often alleged that Queen ripped them off.

Regardless, Hello Young Lovers is filled to the brim with musical composition ideas. The songs are often silly, but the execution is breathtaking. It's amazing that a band formed in 1970 can still be around putting together tracks that soar with creativity.
