  3. A 2022 repress of the glorious 40th anniversary edition of Jethro Tull's conceptual masterpiece, Thick As A Brick. Out of print for 10 years! The CD features a new mix of the album by Steven Wilson, while the DVD contains 5.1 DTS & Dolby Digital surround sound mix, high quality stereo 96/24 (new mix), the original 1972 stereo mix flat transferred to 96/24 PCM (directly from the Morgan Studios recording by Robin Black), plus a 1972 radio ad. The original TAAB newspaper, an article by Classic Rock's Dom Lawson, rare photos by Didi Zill and Robert Ellis, recording/touring mementos and much more are contained in a 104 page hardback book. All preorders come with an exclusive postcard.

  6. "Maybe I'm Amazed", it's a one man show on the solo album and a superior band version on the live album. Great, great vocals. "Imagine" is basically candy coated Communist Manifesto, Lennon said it. It's a beautiful melody that's overplayed, way overplayed. Going with Macca on this one.

  9. Steely Dan-Aja (8/10) There are people who might think i hate this album. i do not. i like it a lot. in fact it's got 2 of my fav SD songs ever. Black Cow and Deacon Blues (This song is amazing) it's got a couple songs i do not like. Peg (the BIG hit......always hated it.......PEEEEEEEEEEEG. SHUT up Michael Mcdonald) and I Got the News (filler) the record is also a bit TOO slick for my taste but it's not a deal Breaker. this record is essentially Toto IV prior to Toto IV. in terms of studio slickness and being a smash hit. but I prefer Aja by leagues over IV Mick

  15. Eh... I don`t have a doorbell, as it implies an openness to interaction. I might consider a different Rush tune, Limelight perhaps. Your point about animal-scaring is valid and I get enough filthy looks from my cats.

  16. A decent band - always interesting I fnally got round to listening to this - a shame that they have parted ways with vocalist Rocky. A terrific live set.

  18. lorraine really was cool as hell. she tried to get me into drug counseling while she was alive because she was just the type of person to give a shit about a complete stranger who really didn't deserve her time. now I can say I've been off any sort of drugs and alcohol for close to a month and I'm feeling great.

  19. Hey i've said this over and over again. i like Aja. do i LOVE it? nope. too perfect and slick. it's the same issue with Toto IV for me (that and just weaker hooks) anyway.......yea albums like Can't Buy a Thrill, Countdown To Ecstasy, Pretzel Logic and The Royal Scam (my fav) have a more raw edge to them. killer guitar solos too. AHHH Steely Dan. Mick

  20. Watching the news last night, it seems to me many people are being misled about what the U.S. Supreme Court actually decided yesterday. They ruled that the regulation of abortion is not a subject addressed in the federal constitution. That doesn’t mean it’s not a significant issue. It means that Alabama and Massachusetts don’t have to have the same regulations. A state can provide for abortion up to birth if it’s citizens so choose. But the federal constitution is silent about it. if you are passionate about this issue, turn your attention to your state legislative races and your governor’s elections. Finally, a word about stare decisis. When the Supreme Court decided that “separate but equal” facilities were legal they were wrong. If a case challenging “separate but equal” facilities had come up on appeal in 1897 (the year after Plessy), the court would have been right to overturn it. It is to America’s shame that it took more than 50 years to do that.

  23. I guess I am not quite done with this journey. I don't know exactly what to say, but I still feel the need to say something. Thank you to her friends (and family?) on the Forums who helped those of us who were strangers but felt connected in some way. All the loving posts and encouraging thoughts, and so public yet so respectful and honest. You all are great folks I need to say thank you, again, for joining us all together. It seems short, now, but during those months it felt long and a daily question of "Who wrote something today?", "Will she reply today?". So, yes life moves on. I just feel that I need to say, out loud, that it was a very emotional and courageous thing to do - sharing one's painful trip to the other side. I am sure we all hope that the wind is still filling her sails and the horizon is full of wonderful memories and funny Rush stories. Keep sailing away, Lorraine, sail away to wherever you want. You are free.

  27. Paul had Maybe I'm Amazed framed out as early as the Get Back sessions. It wasn't until John and Yoko appeared on TV performing Instant Karma that it was driven home to Paul that John was serious about the divorce he asked for when they signed their new contract in September 1969. He promptly buttoned up his chinstrap and prepared Maybe I'm Amazed, That Would Be Something, and Every Night. Whenever the studio version of Maybe I'm Amazed comes on the Beatles' Sirius channel and my daughter is in the car with me, I get her to roll her eyes when I ask her, "Who's singing this song? Who's playing all the guitars on this song? Who's playing bass on this song? Who's playing drums on this song?"

  28. Where`s the conviction though? Paul starts with "Maybe...", so is he or isn`t he? Make up your damned mind before writing it. And John, he`s expecting me to stop thinking about whatever I`m doing and hypothesise. I resent both approaches.

  29. When Wonder Woman wanted to remind all the little people how relatable Hollywood stars are and how they feel our pain, did she ask them to sing "Maybe I'm Amazed"? No, she did not.

  31. We went to Anfield Stadium last night to see The Eagles. The band were impeccable sounding as always and put on a crowd pleasing set of great hit songs. Vince Gill slots so well into the band - a proper Eagle now in my books. Support band were Little Big Town who presented a pleasant set of country based sounds. Not sure how many years The Eagles have left in touring but it was great to see them again.

  33. I think there are a bunch of interesting ideas on CA - I remember hearing the title track for the first time and thinking "I've never heard them play this kind of groove before". After 19 or so albums, there probably aren't a lot of bands who could surprise you like that. BUT, I personally find their post 2000 sound too muddy and too big/loud/crowded. The drums are fine, sonically, I guess - I prefer earlier albums but the sound on CA isn't terrible... but the bass and especially the guitar are just sludgey to me - it sounds like a Foo Fighters record in terms of the biggness of the guitars, which is a real turn off to me. It's not as insane as the original mix of VT, but I don't find it pleasant. I feel like a song like The Wreckers is a tune you should be able to put on at a medium volume and have it sound "nice" - clear and defined with the vocal up front. But like a lot of the album, it's a thing where I keep wanting to turn it up to hear more definition, but then I want to turn it down because it's too noisy. And I'm sorry to say it, but Geddy's voice is just not enjoyable to listen to on most of it. I wish he'd just continued to embrace his lower register the way he was doing around Presto. I blame the producer for pushing him so everything could sound like "old Rush".
