Been reading Joe Hill's latest novel The Fireman. Anyone else read or are currently reading it? Came out this past Tuesday. Opinions? Big fan of Mr. Hill's. For those who don't know, he's a horror novelist who's the son of the legendary Stephen King. I guess he altered his name so as to not be flagrant about it and succeed on his own terms - which I respect. He's a few years older than

Thought Reb would be guesting on the next season of hit TV show The Walking Dead, slaying walkers with his "axe" lol How cool would that have been? "Today I only killed seventeeeeeeen" ;-) Oh well... Big fan of that show and comic. For any fans of Robert Kirkman (creator of The Walking Dead) who are interested, the first episode of his new show, Outcast, is currently on

Anyone else check this out? I saw some topics here about PJ Farley's (Trixter) debut solo CD Boutique Sound Frames, but since it came out a couple days ago on Andrew's label, has anyone else listened to the whole thing yet? Pretty good stuff. Like Steve Brown/Stereo Fallout meets the mellower side of Foo Fighters, musically and vocally. I don't think I've ever checked out Ra (always got the i

I respect your opinion, though I think I feel exactly the opposite lol I can understand why you'd think it sounds like fluff (Beyond the Fade). I love it, though...I guess I just like fluff? ::shrugs:: :-) Hey, at least we're all man enough (or woman enough...do females even post here or are they not allowed in the treehouse? lol) to be ourselves and own our music tastes here, right?

Are you familiar with Noelle from the bands Damone and The Organ Beats? She's a straight up rocker. The next Joan Jett IMO. This is a great rock ballad by Damone, my personal fave by them, but I'm sure there's plenty of more upbeat rock stuff by them on Youtube as well. Saw them open for Butch Walker once and she absolutely killed it. Band was almost too heavy for my ears lol Damone - Whe

No hair suggestions yet, people? lol Wish I could post a pic of what it looks like, so you all would have a better idea, but I haven't uploaded any to the net in awhile. Wish you could post one here from your hard drive like some places let you do, but oh well. Maybe I'll upload some more recent ones soon - we'll see.

OT: Just wish there was less of a stigma re: the depression thing regarding talking about that kind of stuff and other "problems" of that nature. Especially among guys. And adults. That whole stoicism "ideal" of seeming to "have it all together". I hate it (I have my reasons). Just my opinion, of course. But maybe part of my purpose in life can be helping t

Yeah, took me awhile, but I like the vocals now. Nick's voice definitely reminds me of someone. Been trying to place it and I think I might finally have it. Steven Patrick of the Christian metal band Holy Soldier? Taking me back to my high school days, haha. Though I guess a lot of singers in the melodic rock genre have that type of voice. And if you haven't seen my other reply post her

Hmmm...silence means consent (except in certain legal situations, so don't take my word as gospel, haha), so I guess that means you all agree with my assessment of the new Poley stuff? ;-) Sweet - off to listen to the whole album for the first time! Oh, and one thing I noticed re: Poley and the Defiants albums. The Defiants closer track is "Underneath the Stars". Poley's closer is

A little late with this, but just wanted to add my .02 without starting a new topic (almost did lol). "You'd Stick Out" - can you say hit single? Great song! I remember first hearing some of PJ's solo stuff (including that one) back in the Myspace days (remember that place? lol)...so cool the album is finally done and about to come out. And Andrew's the one to help put it out - swee

A bit late with this post, but I agree with you so much. Got into them during their Superstar Carwash/Boy Named Goo era, right as I was in college and getting more into "modern rock", and fell in love with their sound. One of the first "90s bands" I liked (as an 80s rock holdout lol). Yeah, they definitely had a Replacements vibe about them. Especially Johnny's vocals.

Hey, that is pretty catchy :-) Agreed about having high hopes for the new album. Though a bit dampened by the fact that I guess he went back to his old record label. I thought the Burning Bridges album was supposed to signal the end of that era and onto a fresh start, but oh well. I'd love another album in the musical and lyrical style of These Days. That was the freshest thing they've

Thanks for the reply, Don! "Not always necessarily for the same reasons"...hmmm. I think I know what you're getting at, though for me, its impossible to listen to songs like "Into the Wild" and "Gonna Need Some Love Tonight" and NOT feel that "pick-me-up"...feeling inspired and feel like living life to the fullest.

Posted about Vega a few weeks ago here, saying I just started checking out their stuff and wanted song recs. So I felt it was only right I come back and update y'all. Really like this band now. Great stuff. The singer was an acquired taste, but most of their songs really grew on me. Especially the songs "Every Little Monster", "Into the Wild", and "Gonna Need Som

I feel the same as you about acoustic bonus tracks. Never been too "chuffed" (as the UK like to say) about them. But I agree - The Defiants album is great. A real grower. Especially enjoy the 2nd half as I feel its the perfect mix of old & "new" (80s & 90s) styles of rock/pop-rock.

Can't wait for this one. Really liked all the pre-release singles and EPK samples I've heard. More so, on average, than I did for the Defiants pre-release songs. If we're comparing - and why wouldn't we be (though I ended up really liking the Defiants album - definitely a grower)? :-) The Poley stuff sounds poppy as hell, but in the best possible way (guitars, giant hooks and choruses).

I just learned about Rick Springfield's new album (yes, I live under a rock - hard to keep up with stuff these days...apparently I've turned into an old man, haha) and I've been checking that out. Sounds kinda country to these ears (good stuff, though). And that album's on Frontiers. So forget everything I ever said about all Frontiers albums sounding the same - I stand corrected :-)

Thanks for the Spotify link. Yeah, I would have thought they'd be on there since other Frontiers artists seem to be. Yet its funny how they didn't turn up when I searched for them. But you seem to have found them, so all's well that ends well, I guess. Just frustrating I couldn't find them on my own...shit like that drives me crazy. Makes me feel like I'm losing my mind...goddamn technol

Ok, just did a Youtube search for "Vega Music" (see below) and I don't think any music by "THE" Vega came up on the first page of results. See my point? So yeah, some specific song title suggestions would greatly help :-) https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=vega+music

Thanks for the suggestion. Was wondering when someone would reply, as I thought it a simple enough question. The Devil, eh? haha. The thing about Youtube though is, like I mentioned, there are multiple bands/projects out there called Vega, so how to know which is THE Vega I want to check out? So yeah, that's why I was hoping for something a little more artist specific to check out. Any s

Hey guys. Thought I'd take time to plug my best friend's music project Hard Lemon Days. Almost called it a "band", but its just him. Then almost called it "musical project" but that makes people think of a musical - dammit! lol Anyway, its Power Pop music. "Hard Pop" as Steve Brown called his band 40Ft Ringo (which is partly where the HLD name comes from - kin

I guess what I was trying to say is that old (but true!) cliche: Age ain't nothing but a number :-) So ease up on poor ol' Rob a little, fellas! Why do people get so hung up on people's ages these days? Why so serious? Most people who go on and on about how "grown-up" they are and how others should "grow-up" just seem like self righteous, empathy challenged douchebags IMO.

Hey Terry. I'm a fan of both eras of D2 for different reasons. The Ted Era for being so good at that "old school" sound (the first album reminds me just as much of Journey as it does other "pop metal" acts of the time. All those keyboards!) and the Paul Era for the "modern pop edge" he brought to the band (some of Paul's D2 stuff reminds me of bands like Marvelous

Hey Johnny! Yeah, you wrote that post I mentioned where you said Paul was a class act. Congrats on the wedding btw! The more I listen to "We All Fall Down" off the Defiants album, the more I like it. Great song. Really feeling the lyrics. It has that lyrical "darkness" I think a lot of people appreciate that came along with the Paul Era of D2. I bet he had a hand in w

Is there anywhere I can check out/stream/sample their stuff without having to buy first (money's tight these days). Been wanting to check them out for awhile, since I've enjoyed the songs they've collaborated on for/with Ted Poley. Plus heard a lot of good things about their own stuff. If their own songs are anywhere near as hooky as the stuff they did for Ted - Count Me In! Tried to find the

Oh, and how could I forget? Duh. Props to Paul for replying to my post on Youtube asking about Frontiers and how much creative control an artist gets (since most Frontiers releases seem so formula). So I'm glad he set the record straight. I'd never really seen anyone ask that question before and it was burning a hole in me, so I'd like to think he appreciated my honesty. I've noticed most Yo

Just listened to the album again. Its a definite grower. "When the Lights Go Down" - Holy David Coverdale, Batman O_O That scream from Paul towards the end took me back to "Still of the Night". Really digging "Runaway" now, too. Though the children voices at the beginning seem a bit odd (if its children voices...or is it just Paul singing all high again? lol

When I saw that song title, I was hoping they'd cover the Enuff Z'nuff "The In Crowd" song, too. Glad to see another Weezer fan here. Enjoying the new album. Quirky power pop greatness.

A little late with this (shoot me), but I live in America and I'm pretty sure Matchbox Twenty's always predominantly been viewed as a pop band here (pop-rock at most), so I'm not sure why everyone's so surprised by Rob's pop inclinations. Never got the "rockstar" vibe from them at all - just seemed like everyday guys I could relate to, like so much of the 90s music scene was all about.
