Listening to the new Nickelback, Dark horse. No surprises here. Just doing what they consistently do very well. A bunch of hard rockin tunes for us old school rockers mixed with one or two radio targeted tunes to keep them in the mainstream spotlight.

Hey I'm a fan but one has to wonder: when are they going to stop banging groupies while chastizing same for seeming seductive rather than acknowledging their own feminine projection? That gets boring after a while even though I remain in harmony with the adolescent/young adult male psyche.

I'm still waiting . . .

Does the new Nickelback sound like the old Nickelback?

In a word, YES. They're radio ready songs do sound the same, it is some of their other songs that have some deviation, but not much, IMO.

I totally agree, but some of the old tracks such as the one you cite sounded ambiguous re: soul versus libido rather than like a def leppard clone (hey who can criticize life on the road, go for it, good luck with that), and I have been routing for NB ever since (e.g., Santana/Chad collaboration) and hoping that they wouldn't end up like all the other young bucks (e.g., Emilio Estivez, Charlie Sheen, Ben Affleck) who wind up as cartoon characters, just MHO, as a more than interested bystander (I love all those guys, or did at one time!)

Marta Gómez - Cantos de Agua Dulce [SACD]

My best friend, his wife, and their 4-month old son came by to visit for a little while. He asked me to put some music on so they could enjoy my system while they were here. I didn't want to annoy his wife or the baby, so I went with Marta since she's somewhat mellow, but the recording is a good showcase for the system. His wife actually commented how nice the album was, and they were also surprised that their baby wasn't crying. They semi-jokingly credited the music, which may not have been too far off. It can be soothing.

I watched parts of it last night and it is probably the best DVD of Rush.


So this would be a good disc to pick up as an introduction to Rush?

I'm really enjoying that album by The Do. If you listened to "Stay (Just a Little Bit More)", "Unissasi Laulelet", and "Queen Dot Kong" all in a row, you might think you were listening to a mix CD. Nice variety, and several strong songs. The only problem is there are pops between tracks. These are downloaded MP3s from Amazon.com. I don't know if it's just Amazon.com or other places, too. Otherwise, I think it's worth having, even if my mom thought they were lousy when she heard a little bit earlier.

Definitely! Then get Rush In Rio followed by R30.
