Nice find.

Sohodolls - "Dead by Christmas"

Haroula Rose - These Open Roads

Glad to hear another Sohodolls song. They still make me happy.

I'm only on the first track of Haroula Rose's, but it's very pleasant.

Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds, haven't listened to this since I first bought my M22's back in '03. Very nice on the M80's. smile

Scorpions & Tarja Turunen. They really sound good together. Songs starts at 0:40...Tarja's background vocal is visceral.

I like Weezer, too, so don't go gettin' all, like, kooky over this. I even bought their recent dud.

If Weezer were a bit better and more consistent at playing, writing, singing, instrumentation, and arranging, they'd be Guster.

In snipets of so many tunes, one could mistake the entire "sound" of one for the other---vocals, comp. styles, rhythms, etc. It sort of begged the comparison, IMHHO.

Try "Easy Wonderful" and see. They're less sophomoric than Weezer (which is W's successfully well-mined turf), therefore, a bit less carefree adolescent fun. So grow up for about 47 minutes and try it.

I have a friend who is nuts over Guster. Between his rec and yours, I may have to check them out.

I like Guster's live DVD. It's a well-done concert disc. I still can't quite embrace Guster fully. Something about them just kind of annoys me, but I'll admit they're really good musicians.

If you check out my post on page 654, you will find my description of the 2010 release from A/C. I do kinda understand, but the store has labelled slots for the Jesus Christ Motherf_ _ _ers, but they are listed simply as "A/C." Really, what's the big deal?

Anyway, as predicted, they totally suck. The recording is dismal, they can't play well enough to entertain a drunken slut, and the libtretto is filled w/ descriptions of scenes from porn flix.

The singer, consistently, in every bar, sings with the exact same voice and intonation. He sounds like Donald Duck doing Bon Scott.

But, no surprise, I think it's a keeper.


New one by Decmberists is great, more later.
There's so much country/folk influenced new stuff out there, that it feels like 1973 and I'm still listening to Jackson Browne and Dan Fogelberg records.

Soft Rock is back and I'm just gonna have to live through this one, like I did the last time. Though my chances of being here when (if) it slings back to boom-boom music are way smaller than in 1973.

That's good stuff amigo, I just listened to that a couple of days ago.

I caught this video a few minutes ago, different, but yet cool ... Jake Shimabukuro performing Bohemian Rhapsody in Hiroshima, Japan.
