  1. Dude, how much competition can there possibly be for singing bass players. I'm scratching my head and all I can come up with that would probably beat Ged are Paul McCartney and Sting, maybe Phil Lynott I guess. I think Ged's an easy top five in that subcategory.
  2. Sick! Okay I will look into that. It’ll be on my list with the new Megadeth, the new Ozzy, and this The Dear Hunter album a local friend recommended to me to get to quickly.
  3. Triumph - Just A Game Styx - Crash Of The Crown (these next three in the background during DnD) Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes Camel - The Snow Goose Yes - Relayer and first time listen just now for AFI - The Art Of Drowning that was awesome!
  4. It’s fantastic! But! …. They did almost all of these tunes even better on the following tours in 73 and 74. I will regularly play one of the four discs from The Great Deceiver box set instead of LTIA or SABB
  5. Panic! Panic! Panic! Panic! Viva Las Vengeance is the greatest thing they’ve done since losing members… and Brendan knows it.
  6. It was a grower for me, but it’s not for everyone. I’m surprised you like Starless And Bible Black more than it though. That and In The Wake Of Poseidon are the tough cookies for me. Flashes of brilliance interspersed with the KC equivalent of filler (ie, still good but not really great).
  7. PANIC! AT THE DISCO It was incredible! Just fantastic! Really truly wonderful! Spectacular! I won’t spoil the set just in case anyone wants to go still….. but I loved it, and I bet Mick would love it too.
  8. I definitely have to be in the right mood for it. It takes me to a very dark place sometimes and that can be an incredible experience or a horrible one.
  9. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II Panic! At The Disco - Death Of A Bachelor Panic! At The Disco - Pray For The Wicked and on my way to the arena now!!
  10. I haven't listened to it in years. I remember liking it a lot, but thinking it's just overlong. I love the idea of Around The World coming back for a round 2 at the end... but in execution I've already heard like how many minutes of that chorus? How many more do I want to sit through? lol Now that I'm looking at the tracklist, yeah there are at least a few outright gems on here though. D'You Know What I Mean? Is a perfect opener, My Big Mouth has a really gratifying hook, Stand By Me is a classic Oasis ballad, as well as Don't Go Away, and Fade In-Out I always really loved for the mood of it.
  11. I take Definitely Maybe over Morning Glory, but aside from Be Here Now that's all the Oasis I've listened to.
  12. Panic! At The Disco - Viva Las Vengeance Just fantastic. Every song. Every single song. The bass playing is so fun! The vocals are perfect, and I do not agree with the criticism I've seen that he's too "screamy" or his voice sounds too strained. It's rock and roll, it's urgent, and it feels urgent. It feels like Lou Gramm, who is perhaps the platonic ideal of a rock singer. The drums are full of style and subtlety. The guitars are bright and quirky. The backing vocals are angelic, and just a bit demented. And all the keyboards and orchestral elements are just lovely, beautiful. And the songs! Oh the songs are so ambitious and yet so tightly wound. Not an ounce of fat, I swear. I just love this thing top to bottom. Album of the year, in the early running for album of the decade. Do need to get in DOAB and PFTW before the concert tomorrow, and probably this just one more time. Another fun fact, multiple times listening to this at home I have told myself I was going to just listen and not try to sing along... and each time I have failed, lol.
  13. One of my all time favorites, and thankfully one I can actually sing along with most of the time! I love all their stuff though :p
  14. Interesting question, and these do feel like the right options. Hmm... Can't be CP, because T4E exists and is pretty much CP part 2, the leftovers. I don't think it's the debut either, because, there are definitely debut type songs as far out as Caress Of Steel after it. Speaking of CoS, it could be, but to me it feels like a pretty natural blend of the two records before it and the three records after it to me. Being the structural reverse of 2112 doesn't help its case for uniqueness either. That leaves Snakes and VT, two very odd records. Despite coming right after each other, the only noticeable similarity to me is Geddy's use of falsetto on both records, something he never did before and also didn't do on CA iirc. VT has the sonic template of a 90s metal album and the melodic sense of something much poppier. Snakes feels like the natural answer to the question, what if Rush just played like a normal band for once, which is to basically say they put a lot of the blues and psych from their high school years back into their sound and paired those sounds with a lot of verse chorus type songs (not surprisingly, it's the weirder songs that are the better ones on that record, not all those verse chorus filler tracks). To me, despite Snakes' own uniquities in Rush's catalogue, the obvious callbacks to a lot of old Rush influences makes it stick out a little less to me. So I'll give it to VT. Just a really unusual batch of tunes with production unlike anything else I've ever heard.
  15. There is a LOT of competition out there. I'm certain of two things though. 1. He's not my number 1 (that's always gonna be Freddie), and 2. He's waaaay better than he usually gets credit for, and probably makes my top 10... could even be top 5.
  16. Woke up this morning and the new Paramore song, that I had only listened to once, was stuck in my head. That’s a win. Paramore - All We Know Is Falling Paramore - Riot! Paramore - Brand New Eyes They just got better and better with every record through this point.
  17. I may have had to pause a couple times in the middle of the last one, but it’s amazing how such long albums can psychologically shorten the length of time you’ve spent working.
  18. Iron Maiden - Senjutsu Iron Maiden - Brave New World Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier
  19. Honestly!! It really doesn’t get much better, save some long lost cutting room floor Queen tapes get released or the classic 5 man Genesis lineup spontaneously decides to record an album together.
