What the hell is going on here? You people are driving me mad.  ::)

This should be a non-issue. WAR crushes Boy on any given day, FFS.

Totally agree.

says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

I tied things up with WAR.

Boy's not a bad debut album but they started to get better after October.

Two GREAT albums. War just edges it for me.
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world
