Would've been a b-side back in the day. The autotune is obnoxious. There's no reason for autotune other than laziness.

A-men! If any of their songs post Demons Down came on, I wouldn't be able to tell you what album it came from. It's all so pedestrian. Too bad because James Christian has an amazing voice.

A handful of us talked about it when it was first announced... I'm super stoked for this. Hoping they play somehwere near me (US east coast). I'm a Kiske fanboy, so, most of my fervor for the band died out when he left the band but I still enjoyed the records up until Better Than Raw. Saw them in NYC on that tour. Deris was better live than I expected, but he is certainly no Kiske. They pla

Indeed! Very near the top of my list of 2016 records was Margo Price's "Midwest Farmer's Daughter" and that's as "real country" as it gets.

Trying to purchase a couple of a-ha singles online (in FLAC format) and they are not available in the US so transactions won't go through... https://tracks.technics.com/GB/releases/5135146 and https://tracks.technics.com/GB/releases/5119680 Any chance someone can get these for me (the premium, FLAC version)? Will pay you through PayPal immediately... PM me! Thanks!

Counterparts is my favorite, by far. Also really into Hold Your Fire and Signals ("Analog Kid" is my #1 Rush song).

Love the band, the new EP will take some time to settle with me. "Dwonward SPiral" and "Pretty Hate Machine" are fantastic records and no one else does what they do better than NIN.

I think cinema is different -- if Tom was writing his own movies they'd be full of Xenu-babble (either explicit or subliminal), but he only acts in them. Music is a lot more expressive and representative of the artist (generally also the writer). But, I guess I'm speaking more of personal music (folk, country, indie, etc) than rock which is generally more general and universal with its themes

You can't separate the person from the art. Music is an extension of who they are and it is informed by their beliefs and convictions. Many artists have turned my like into love due to their personal ethics and their willingness to speak out loud when and where their words can be heard and matter to those who need to hear them. I haven't really stopped liking a musician because of his/her politic

Holy Hell! Hansen, Weikath, Gro├čkopf and Kiske together again... plus Andi and Sacha. Will have to make the trip for a few shows. Hope the US dates are extensive! http://pumpkins-united.helloween.org/en/pumpkins-united-world-tour-2017-2018.html

I like it, especially after seeing it performed live, but the story is so cringe-worthy I rarely listen to it anymore. As much as I love DT, they are in dire need of working with an outside producer. Someone needs to help them refocus. They have not been the same band I fell in love with since Six Degrees.

There's a shit ton of good country music out there. You won't hear it on "country" radio though.

Agreed! Wonderfully written. This is the kind of review that, even though it is clear the reviewer didn't like it, makes me want to listen to the record even more than I did before. I clicked on the ranked albums list and was very pleasantly surprised to see someone else who ranks These Days above everything else the band has done. Super curious about the new one now.

Saw the Cocks about a month ago... amazing! I haven't found too much crossover w/ hard rock, and these are fairly big industrial bands so you probably know them, but what about My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and the offshoot Excessive Force? For something more recent, how about The Dreaming (Christopher Hall of Stabbing Westward on vox).

Probably not your thing musically, but Chris Corner (IAMX) writes/plays/produces everything he does. I think he's pretty damn brilliant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLmC2hSRwKM

An ABBA compilation... always been a sucker for catchy pop hooks. Probably the reason I prefer AOR/Melodic Rock over the strip bands.

If your evolution comes from an honest place, it'll work. If you're only chasing trends without your heart being in it, everyone will be able to tell. Whether your fans follow you down that path is a different matter altogether. Winger's "Pull" is amazing.

Agreed with a lot said on this thread. Very little modern MR appeals to me anymore. Not only is it unexciting musically, but the lyrics tend to be so horrible in the genre for this 40yo. I have no interest in hearing about "Sweet Little Sisters", especially when sung by 50+ year olds. I find a lot more material I can relate to in folk/indie/Americana, synthpop/industrial and progressive

Saw the show last week in DC. Amazing as always. Butch has never disappointed me live, but this show has a new kind of fire that is infectious.

Great record! It dips a little on the second half, but the only song I don't rally care for is "Record Store." Live, the new songs are even stronger and more powerful. "Wilder in the Heart" is probably my favorite Butch song since Sycamore Meadows.

The biggest problem is that none of these bands are writing their own material. It's going to sound cookie cutter not just because of the guy producing them, but because that same guy is also writing (I'd assume) the majority of the material. Whether you think that cookie is tasty is a different matter, but I'm more interested in bands/artists who have something to say themselves.
