Gen 28 2014, 20:40 di lonelyfurrowSo it’s that time again. Another head first dive into the years best albums courtesy of Classic Rock’s Top 50 albums list. Just like last year this is more about me discovering new music and bands instead of giving in-depth reviews of each album. I’ll try to give a brief over view of what the albums are like so that you can check them out if you wish.
1.Black Sabbath – 13
Apart from Iron Man and Faith No More’s version of War Pigs I’ve never got into the Black Sabbath sound. Ironic as they hail from my home city. I really didn’t think that the new album would change my mind and it hasn’t. I know there are a lot of fans out there so I won’t be too harsh but I found this album dull and monotonous. Iommi’s guitar sound is instantly recognisable but, to me at least, it sounds the same as it did 30 years ago. Maybe that’s the point, I don’t know. I’ll probably get slated for this as well, but, I really don’t like Ozzy’s vocals either.
2.Clutch – Earth Rocker
Nov 25 2013, 5:55 di larzofthenorthWhen I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1990, Y&T was one of the bands people recommended to me to see live. Though Bay Area metal was changing quite a bit from it's thrash heyday and pioneering death metal roots. Y&T (Yesterday & Today) would persist long after most of those bands faded away. In fact, Y&T has been around at least 30 years, probably more and shows no signs of slowing down.
While the original Y&T lineup will never play live together again, I caught the revised Y&T lineup at the Mystic in Petaluma on November 22nd 2013. The Petaluma shows have a bit of a legendary quality to them. They made a CD out of the 2011 recordings and playing the Mystic every year is an annual tradition. I have to give credit to band founder Dave Meniketti. He really is a quality talent. I don't know if he ever had opportunities to get in a bigger band and really make a good living for himself. Y&T has been marginally successful throughout their existence. I know he has had contacts. …

Dic 31 2009, 20:52 di NallisPerhaps this year I will put some effort into something on some sites... Seeing as Last.fm is music, this seems a good place for it, seeing as it has helped me endlessly in my quest to find new music.
So, I stole this from somewhere, cos I r a thieving child I am... but it is questions relating to the top 50 artists if I understand correctly, so here goes...
(I do get the feeling that I have more of a top 20 to what I listen to most but nevertheless!)
How did you get into 31?
I honestly have no idea, all I can recall is having an album of hers, (Speak for Yourself) and it coming on the iTunes party shuffle thingy while playing WoW and I got sickeningly hooked. Very strange stuff!
What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
I can't be certain at all, I know it was off one of the Metal Opera albums... I didn't listen to it in order at first because clever clogs me didn't realise >.<
What is your favorite lyric by 29?
Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann
Dic 28 2009, 14:44 di MarcelobahOriginalmente publicado em http://stayschizo.wordpress.com/2009/12/28/melhores-ou-nao-discos-de-2009/
2009 foi um ano de grandes lançamentos musicais – em quantidade e qualidade. Eu como sou curioso acabo por ouvir desde os lançamentos esperados a tudo que vejo pela frente e imagino ter uma chance de ser interessante, o que não raramente me traz boas surpresas. Mas esse ano acabou sendo mais do que o normal, pois é de longe o ano que mais tenho produções sonográficas para desfrutar.
O certo seria eu fazer um review decente e exclusivo para cada álbum, mas como tenho preguiça, acabo deixando pro final do ano. Mas ano que vem tentarei mudar! (já disse isso algumas vezes) Então, como tá tudo aí, não farei resenhas muito completas.
Resolvi então escrever sobre tais lançamentos. Como tem muita coisa e não tenho forças pra falar de tudo, resolvi fazer primeiramente um Top 18 dos melhores do ano, e adiante mais alguns comentários diversos. …
