Yeah I dug Popkiller though I haven't played it for eons so it doesn't come to mind. I might have to dig it out now. My fav from the catalogue is Swagger though I've enjoyed all their output, but Swagger's the standout for me.

I'm not meaning to hijack the poster's thread, but, has anybody ripped vinyl via USB turntable and found anything different in the quality of flac/mp3/whatever at the other end? I've got a vinyl collection I'd love to rip and have had my eye out for a USB turntable for a while, but if the resulting rips don't match the vinyl press then I'm not sure its worth my time and money. Anyone? So

Just to preface, I haven't seen the footage you speak of. I'm a Crue fan and am similarly disappointed that they're calling it a day, and on the back of what I consider to be one of their best albums in SOLA and the new tracks they recorded for the Red, White & Crue compilation. But there's always a but; Nikki has stated openly that they'll never record an album again because we consumers

Haven't listened to it in eons, love it. Just jumped onto Amazon to relive the samples and they're selling Mechanical Resonance, Psychotic Supper and The Great Radio Controversy as a package for 20 bucks. Mad if you don't!

He's got that Woody Allen whine about him, its painful. Having said that he was great in Holy Rollers, and while he didn't do much to elevate Zombieland it is a classic. The Social Network, well, that's just Jesse all over, how could anybody else have played that character so well... But as Lex Luthor? No thanks x10. Man Of Steel was terrible in my opinion, I was really hanging out to se

Bit same-samey for me and agree its pretty flat compared to the debut. I enjoyed the debut for the record. Check out the New Device album if you like The Treatment, its music from the same realm but much better in my opinion.

Yeah I always loved the album myself, flogged the shit out of it when I bought it back in...was it 95? I actually dig the ManRaze discs because of how they hark to Slang, so hook into those if you haven't already.

I'll play, though in contrast to everyone else I'll struggle to come up with five. I agree that its good to hear what everyone else enjoyed, mostly because I probably missed the boat. In no particular order: Heaven's Basement - Filthy Empire The Almost - Fear Insight Our Bones My chemical Romance - Chemical Weapons Harem Scarem - Mood Swings II Yeah that's it for me, slow year.

Not sure how Harem Scarem come into it...but I agree they weren't great clips from the singer's perspective. Certainly couldn't have hurt to put a shirt on :-/ But the track streaming on their web site actually sounds pretty awesome, bit drawn out perhaps but its Jake's band so I guess he's squeezing in as many chops as possible. I'm curious to hear the rest of the album now.

Wow, "interesting" is a good word I guess. I haven't heard much from the list, nor heard of a lot of the artists, so I'll refrain from comment. But in terms of my Top 40, hmm, I think I'll be lucky to get a Top 5. I've got The Almost, Heaven's Basement for sure, Alter Bridge is still growing on me, and the Hollywood Burnouts album was an enjoyable surprise. My Chemical Romance's a

Stuffed if I know where I changed Impellitteri to AdrianGale, if I wasn't laughing at myself I'd be a bit worried. Thanks again.

Bear with me here because all my CDs are still boxed since moving house a few months back, but I'm sure I have an album in there from the late 90s by a band called AdrianGale - album title "Crunch" - that is a Helloween-style shred metal album; its really good too. But I'm listening to the latest AdrianGale (thank you Xbox music, I'm new to the service but to be able to play whatev

Sort of similar: I make a mix tape of the year's best annually and spread it around, but its less for them to guess and more to acquaint them with music they might otherwise not venture into. And I still call them mix tapes <shrug> I like what you're doing there, nice one!

He's never been my favourite actor either but he did a handful of decent flicks, check out Running Scared if nothing else, its definitely his best and a solid thriller in general. Roadkill is a half decent thriller/horror as well. If the photos of the wreck that have been published are of the car he was in then it looks like a pretty horrific way to go, completely disintegrated/incinerated, w

I discovered the album late by comparison (around the time Karma Cleansing was released) and was completely blown away. For me it was not just a great rock album but the perfect answer to the messy era of grunge and alternative that I struggled to find anything to like about. I bought the re-recording on iTunes when it was released and have fallen for the album all over again; one of the best

Am I just getting old or are people at concerts these days standing dead still?!?? The last show I went to (theatre sized show), I (badly) danced my arse off and sung every word I knew - and probably more than a few that I didn't - and so did most of the people around me, but I'm seeing this footage and wondering to myself why people bother going when they can order the DVD to be delivered strai

Ah dude I struggled for years with this exact point, years I tell you! And the only answer I have for you now is: I think we all grow out of it eventually. I thought I was going to smash heavy metal on my various modes of stereo equipment forever, but these days, other than the occassional track or two for a particular moment's sake, I have to say I think even I'm over it.

I've actually never heard that Skynard track but as soon as the opening riff kicked off the first thing that came to mind was the opening of "Civil War" except a bit slower...no? Gunners - Civial War

Actually while I"m at it you guys might like the latest Bobaflex album "Charlatan's Web", similar vibe and I'd rate it slightly better quality. Give it a shot. This'd be my pick from the album: Bobaflex - Pretty Little Things

Dude this sounds pretty cool, thanks for the heads up. I'm only on the second track but I can tell I'm going to like it. I have to say though, the old chestnut of "knife to a gunfight" is popping more than I'd like. I thought Stone Gods nailed it so struggle to hear it repeated: Stone Gods - Knife To A Gun Fight (check out the studio version if this is a bit raw) Sick Puppi

I've been waiting around for this to get released. I too am a casual Butch Walker fan but find his post-M3 hit-and-miss. But even after reading his woefully boring book I still find his past interesting, and I'm hoping the doc will be easier to sit through than book if only for some vintage footage. And happy birthday brother, hope you celebrated in style <fist bump>

I've found the pickings a bit slim this year, in fact the last couple of years have been notably quiet compared to the few before that. My song of the year so far is by far: The Almost - I'm Down Comes from a great album actually ("Fear Inside Our Bones"), its one of my most listened to. My album of the year so far is Heaven's Basement's "Filthy Empire", I just don

Watched the first couple of eps of UTD but just couldn't get into it and gave up, something overly contrived about it, and not that I watched any but if feels like it's trying for a "Lost" vibe. A couple more worth mentioning if you haven't seen/heard of them: Banshee - ex-con lucks into assuming the identity of a murdered small-town sherriff in order to hide from his old crew out

After the more-than-satisfactory "Love Is The Missile", an EP that promised better and a worse follow-up LP, they've just released an album that defies classification. I'll give it a go though: Stoner Dirge Rock. Horrific! Shame really. More of a statement post, but is anybody else equally disappointed?

Or is it just that because I don't pay attention to country music that I've missed the memo and they all look/dress like that? Love Paul's voice but I'm not buying in, country does zero for me. Its a dead set shame Dx2 reunited with Poley, not that they made a bad album but Laine's vocals are sorely missed.

Just as excellent in my opinion, I've watched seven episodes so far and once again it keeps getting better IMO. Other shows of interest, this season of Dexter isn't quite up to scratch, Breaking Bad is holding form, but my biggest disappointment has been Low Winter Sun, it just seems like a whole lot of bluster with no outcome. Just me?
