  1. It's fine. Not hearing anything that's going to make me run out and buy it. After Ear Candy my personal musical tastes drifted away from King's X. For me they had a clear sweet spot across a couple albums that worked for me. Foo Fighters would be another band that have two albums I love to death, back to back, but everything before and since not regular rotation worthy.
  2. For me as well, the only other Tull album not named Aqualung I enjoy. I'd be getting it mostly for the surround mix, but I'm basically not listening to surround music anymore so it's a bit of money to spend for something I may only spin once.
  3. I've managed a couple full listens in the car, overall positive as well. It seems like a continuation of where they left off on The Incident, which isn't may favorite material but it's still better than a lot of other things I could be listening to. Maybe the surround mix will reveal some things (going to be a bit until the bluray arrives).
  4. Interesting poll. I'm partial to Paul's solo stuff and this song, but both are classics and worthy in their own ways. Imagine captures an era, the context for the song forgotten a bit through time. I'm a hippie at heart. I think peace and love is better than whatever alternative (war and profit?) we've landed on nowadays. The song should still resonate very loudly today, but there's just too much noise from all directions.
  5. As much as I tend to gravitate towards music in odd (non 4/4) signatures, I don't find myself counting along or doing a lot of these in my own music. I think it's just how these songs can sometimes 'feel' creative in a way it's more challenging to accomplish through pure riff mastery in 4/4. Adds an element of depth that can carry even otherwise ordinary compositions (All You Need is Love a good example from the video -- simple riff to play but the odd time signature injects some very enjoyable/unique feel to the song).
  6. Very well could be, I said 7/4 based on my memory of what SW said so of course either of our memories could be wrong. lol
  7. I got the same notification by email this morning. Thanks for the pro tip, I just did the same thing (cancelled/ordered from Burning Shed).
  8. Here's an example of 7/4 done masterfully well, it would have been near the top of any such list I would create.
  9. Busted out some obscure Zappa. Everyone Wants to Rule the World feels odd, even though it's in 6/4 (12/8). Turn It On and All You Need Is Love were the surprises from this list for me, both are great tracks and flow so well.
  10. I feel bad for the reviewers, the power they must have over them for not a single copy to trickle out from all those music nerd hands. Reviewer: "I'd like to review your album, Mr PT." Mr PT: "Sign here in blood. Which of your children will you be using as collateral?"
  11. Chomping at the bit for a leak. Doubt I'll have the box set arrive by release day. I've enjoyed the first three released tracks gonna skip listening to Rats just because I want something 'new' to enjoy.
  12. Checking out the title track on bandcamp now... tight! I liked Richard's solo album (Cocoon) from a couple years ago. Thanks for the reminder, I need to circle back on that it's ben a while. There's no shortage of individual talent in this band.
  13. That's a well thought out post, and I was agreeing until the end. For the reason you mentioned him, and for the reason his 14 grammy nominations was news in the music world, Batiste is a very glaring exception to the general rule. And without the 'Colbert bump' it's unlikely he would have garnished the attention and/or record deal that led to that award winning recording.
