Sick of hearing the new crappy My Chemical Romance song. Any chance of me liking them has gone.

haha, I'm surprised you even listened to it at all.

I sort of liked Welcome to the Black Parade, and had I bought and listened to the album a few years ago, I'd probably have enjoyed it. But I just can't be doing with it now.


The album isn't all that bad, it's just really odd and out there. It makes everything they've made before this album kinda irrelevant. I feel like if they made albums like this instead of Bullets or TBP, they'd be more successful. Na Na Na is a crap song though.

If you buy Queen and you have a turntable, get it on vinyl, preferably coloured vinyl.  Trust me, it's worth the extra cost...my A Night at the Opera is one of my most cherished possessions and plays wonderfully.  Listening to Bohemian Rhapsody on the warm feeling and crackle of vinyl is one of my favourite things to do.

I love that album.


Ive only recently discovered Abbey Road (don't judge me....). I never was much of a Beatles fan, up until my friend bought the album and we both sat down and listened to it. It's quite amazing I will admit. Mind you though, I was quite under the influence while listening.

Abbey Road I found kinda average. Sgt Peppers and Revolver are good albums though

     Huh, that's interesting. Abbey Road is by far my favorite of those three albums, possibly because it's the most even in song quality (in my estimation) & the most "earthy". Revolver has some great songs, but the majority I find too "airy". Sgt. Pepper is a bit more "earthy" in its sound than Revolver, but it comes off to me as a bit slapdash.

Abbey Road I think doesn't get the credit it should.  It is probably the best of the three later albums (barring Let it Be), and also pretty damn cohesive.  The quality of each song...leading up to the finale Abbey Road Medley is simply great.

I'm kind of sad the Beatles became so disjointed, because as seen by their later work (especially Happiness is a Warm Gun and the Abbey Road Medley), they started to dabble into what would become Prog rock - and a Beatles driven prog album would've kicked ass.Cheesy

     I must agree, A Night At The Opera is a great album. Everyone knows Bohemian Rhapsody, but I find Death On Two Legs, '39 & The Prophet's Song to be great songs that do not garner anywhere close to the praise they deserve.

Very true.  But Queen doesn't get a lot of credit outside of Bohemian Rhapsody sadly.

I'm not much a Beatles fan, but that would've been sweet to see.

It's better than Welcome To The Black Parade, but still annoying. Catchy as hell though.

The Fragile is really beginning to grow on me. At first I thought it was a load of filler with a couple of good songs, but I actually like it alot now.

OMG SUPERCHUNK IS PLAYING MINNEAPOLIS!

http://www.first-avenue.com/event/2010/12/893-current-city-pages-present-superchunk

And I just found about it a week earlier! Good thing it wasn't sold out yet. Most expensive ticket I ever bought, but well worth it. I'm even leaving work early for this!

This is probably the first show with 40something musicians I'm going to.

     I'm going to see Death Angel in about three months. I would like to see something before then, but there's nothing good at the main venues I frequent.

Bleh. It feels grossly incomplete, but take a look anyway. It's really alt rock and industrial based at the moment, but hopefully I can work on getting some more prog rock and metal and stuff like that in there. I dunno. Feel free to make recs.

     You ever listen to Bohren und der Club of Gore? They're an atmospheric jazz band from Germany, best distinguished by their propensity for playing at doom metal tempos.

I enjoyed Mogwai live but they aren't for everyone. I still need to see Sonic Youth live. I had planned on doing that this past summer but I didn't get a chance.

I feel like I'm 10 years old again and it's Christmas Eve.

I've already drank some Loko to prepare. The show will involve even more amazing drinking of course. THIS. IS. GOING. TO. RULE.
