  1. They don’t really care about the artists they induct being rock anymore. That’s my take on the recent country inductions.
  2. I hate the rock hall, just in general, but if there were a good music hall of fame, all of these acts would definitely belong.
  3. Peter Gabriel - Car Peter Gabriel - Scratch Peter Gabriel - Melt Car is bursting with ideas but there are moments when you can tell Peter hasn’t yet changed all that much from his Genesis days, just hired some different musicians to play behind him. Scratch feels very much like a reaction to and enthusiastic embrace of punk, though those proggier tendencies still shine through in places, and he’s trying to figure out how to mix the two aesthetics. Melt is that fusion, fully formed. Plus the songwriting kicked up a notch. Taking notes from Bowie and and Eno, Melt finds the common ground between prog and punk, an experimental sound palate built on restrictions and simplifications, and lyrics which speak to the mind as much as the heart. His best thus far.
  4. They are all fantastic. I just wish that Brand New wasn’t problematic, or at least that the lyrics didn’t make me think about that fact.
  5. Save Face - Another Kill For The Highlight Reel The Used - In Love And Death Chevelle - Wonder What’s Next Brand New - The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Of Me
  6. Tedeschi Trucks Band - I Am The Moon, Pt. 1: Crescent Wow, the liner notes are really good.
  7. This may have been my favorite one so far. The live cuts are astonishingly good. Hearing Alex's PeW tone on Xanadu is transformative.
  8. Bikini Kill - Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Wet Leg - Wet Leg Liz Phair - Exile In Guy Ville Weezer - Weezer (Green)
  9. Eh, but Muse are bigger in Mexico than the US. I bet all four of those shows were sold out.
  10. That’s the way to do it! Bargain bins and gifts!
  11. On the other hand, they’re opening for Muse, which puts them at the same level of current relevance to booking agents as The Warning.
  12. Well Drones makes almost every other Muse album seem like sunshine and rainbows by comparison, lol.
  13. Really? I find them resolutely unalike, barring Compliance on WOtP
  14. A lot of Musers have been saying this is the best thing since BH&R. I’ve pretty torn on it. It feels almost like an AI attempt to synthesize a Muse album out of their past 4 or 5 and a couple early tracks. I love most of that stuff, so no big deal for me, but it’s not this transcendent thing like the classic run from OoS to BH&R (and I would argue TR).
  15. Yay!!! Here’s my stab at ranking them: Pretty much perfection: 1. The Resistance (United States Of Eurasia / Collateral Damage) 2. Origin Of Symmetry (New Born) Bliss: 3. Drones (Reapers) 4/5. Absolution (Time Is Running Out) 5/4. Black Holes & Revelations (Map Of The Problematique) Love: 6. Showbiz (Muscle Museum) 7. Will Of The People (Kill Or Be Killed) (this one is still a wild card for me, I have no doubt my opinion of it will probably skyrocket after I see them live next month) Great: 8. The 2nd Law (Madness) 9. Simulation Theory (Break It To Me) (and just to accent my adulation if this band, it’s really just two or three tracks in the back half that weigh this one down for me, TC, DD, and on a bad day GUAF)
  16. Thin Lizzy - Vagabonds Of The Western World Bite me but this is better than most of the double lead guitar era albums.
  17. Definitely their weirdest. I love the experiments though, Propoganda and Break It To Me especially. Dig Down is possibly my least favorite Muse song, but check out the acoustic gospel version from the bonus disc.
  18. Caligula’s Horse - Bloom White Reaper - You Deserve Love (in preparation for…) White Reaper - Asking For A Ride Brand new White Reaper album out today, and it once again surpassed my expectations for this band! The first half has them channeling their heaviest influences (Metallica, Priest, Thin Lizzy, to name a few), and it’s by far the heaviest they’ve ever been on record. The second sees more of a focus of keys and textures, but still with plenty of great guitar work, resulting in a sound I can only really compare to The Killers’ Hot Fuss if they had twin lead guitarists. This is a lot of new ground broken for this band, and I think in the process they’ve really started crafting a sound that can’t just be labeled revivalism. 10 songs in 30 minutes with plenty of great hooks, riffs, and atmospheres. All bangers. Check it out!
  19. I actually like this one a lot. It makes a lot more sense with the big triple LP edition.
  20. This is inarguably my favorite Muse album. The production is immaculate, the songs are bold and absurdly diverse, and the performances are incredibly fine tuned. Exogenesis actually took the longest to grow on me of the whole thing, but now it sits comfortably among my favorite things Muse has ever done. Check out the fan animated music video for Part 3. It brought a tear to my eye.
