I find that

'all right'
'not bad, I suppose'
'could be worse'
'fair to middling'
& 'fine, whatever'

tend to suffice when commenting positively on the music served up here.
For other purposes, how about 'Bodacious', 'crackerjack', 'transubstantiational', or simply (not to mention simperingly) 'Super!'?

I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Hella is a No. California adjective only used when something is really good.

Boss or neato were ones I used as a kid. I still say cool.

It's used round Wigan regularly, too, again as often sarcastically as positively. Pronounced "champyun" normally.

I thought "hella" was an intensifier, like the Bostonian "wicked"
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Me too, for example "hella lame", just one of the 48,000 times Cartman used "hella" in that episode where he said "hella" a lot.
