Tonight, its Tiempos by Ruben Blades. Nice jazzy, soft latin salsa. Great music to listen to while star-gazzing on the deck.

NeverHappy: I have given more spins to "Savage Poetry"




Yeah that is a great disc. I love the intro to "Hallowed". Starts slow and then builds and then it's crunch time. I have heard better songs from them but the intro is great! Key To My Fate would be my number one tune off that disc. I just like the flow and the drum work is excellent.

Well so much for mellow night. You brought it up and now I'm spinning EdGuy - King of Fools off the Hellfire Club cd. Great tune!

Bang your head a little for me when you see them live! .....especially when they do "Walk On Fighting"

thyname, have you ever spun Evergrey? Give "A Touch Of Blessing" off the cd The Inner Circle a go and let me know what you think.

Tonight I'm going mellow. Nirvana - MTV Unplugged In New York




That is a nicely recorded cd. Surprising for a live recording.

Evergray? Never heard of... I will check it out though. I am more into power metal (Helloween style let's say), some call it Happy Metal, some call it tralala metal :-) but I like it, traditional Maidenish-like metal, as well as some Gothenburg style (melodic) death metal.

I am sure I will enjoy the concert. I can't "act" too silly though, since I am bringing my fiance with me (who does not like this kind of music at all). She came with me to see Dark Tranquillity/Soilwork a while ago, and said that it was better than she expected ;-)

I checked Evergrey out. I was turned off a little bit reading that they are a progressive metal band, as I find bands like Dream Theater, Symphony X, Abraxis a little too complicated to my tastes. I downloaded "a touch of blessing" from their website (full track) and it was better than I expected: nice melodies, nice guitars, which were very well integrated with the melodies, and not on their own, and some nice keyboards. I did not care a lot for the vocals though. Not that the guy has a bad voice, but they seemed a little out of place with this kind of music. In general: not the usual prog metal. I will download some more and listen to some more, before I decide if I am purchasing their CD ( I always buy the CDs of the bands that I like).

Thanks for the recommendation NeverHappy! If you like Edguy, you should check this new Swedish band called Gaia Epicus. They released their second cd a while ago and they rock!!

Listened to the Who's Quadrophenia from start to finish and followed it up watching "Ray" for the first time. It was a nice evening to be an Axiom owner.

I agree. It's not bad at all. I normally stay clear of live recordings as more often then not, they sound awful!
