If there are any 'Cat Stevens' fans out there you may want to check out his first new album in years.

I watched a prog. with him recently, talking about his life, his earlier career and why he is back. It was really interesting.

Bought "An Other Cup" at lunch. Nice return of an old friend. Some religious overtones, but pretty subtle (from the songs you wouldn't know WHAT religion, as if it mattered anyway). Logical progression from his earlier work when he was searching for answers -- now he has some. I've always laughed at the folks that treated him like the Boogie Monster for leading life the way he wanted. There is a real comfort in someone like this returning since the world is in such turmoil...these artists are our security blankets! Not sure if the US would let him tour, and what kind of circus that might cause anyway. But boy it'd be sweet to see a performance DVD come about.
