A friend brought out of his car an LP to CD conversion he did of the original, self titled, Rush album. Wow, I had forgotten how bluesy they sounded in the pre-beginning. You could easily mistake them for Zeppelin. Geddy even sounds a little bit more like Robert Plant than he does himself on a couple of songs.

Loc: It's all about the location.
There are a few very early Rush songs(pre-Peart) that have not been released on disc that I heard on Rush is a band. Same kind of hard bluesy type music from their first album and some good songs there, don't know why they never put them out there for the masses.

I'm listening to some tracks from Säkert!, Hello Saferide, and Maia Hirasawa that I didn't have before. I'd watched the YouTube video of Maia Hirasawa performing a cover of "The Worrying Kind" before, and I liked it a lot, and yeah, the version on the new edition of her debut album rules, too. It's amazing to me that she wrote, recorded, and produced her own first album, teaching herself how to do everything, and it turned out so well. I'm looking forward to her new album.

American Soldier, wow, definitely one of their best, who knew they could ever rival the original OM, IMHO.

Funny you know when you "listen" to TV, I mourned the loss of those theme songs for network tv shows and one of my faves was ER, when I listened to the intro scene to the finale it sounded so cool with LFEs and HFEs if you will (very crisp), yet when they played the theme song absent for a couple of years it sounded goofy with no low end . . .

Criminal Minds continues to have excellent sound reproduction both low and high that well complements the story line, should be no big deal yet seems more or less rare for network or cable prime time offerings.

24 as another example has boom boom LFEs and not bad explosions yet overall seems cheesy in terms of sonic realism, make no mistake I am a fan despite the history of bogus plot lines involving emotional betrayal by family/friends, but how can you suspend disbelief when unrealistic audio is IYF?

I suppose this in the "wrong" thread again CV, but where is the one for "listening" to TV?

The last couple of days I've been listening to SRV's Texas Flood. Damn fine stuff! Another that I bought recently but have yet to fully get into is John Coltrane's Ascension. I love A Love Supreme and Giant Steps, but I don't get where he was going with Ascension. Does anyone else have this LP/CD and care to share your thoughts?

Listening to a guilty pleasure, Perfume. A J-pop girl group that also does electropop.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfume_(group)

Here’s one of their electropop songs:

Makes up for listening to Gothic Metal all last night.

Spent the day listening to various ambient music while cooking for the week and cleaning. I love ambient music in the background because its not distracting but I can still feel it’s presence.

Santana, Abraxis. I've been wanting to pick this one up again for a while now. Its every bit as good as I remember.

Cowbell never sounded better.
