QuoteCan't get the 'new album' idea with only 8 tracks. Feels like a rip off to me and somewhere between an EP and full album Everyone's a critic. Many people bitch about albums being over loaded with tracks these days. Now a band keeps it concise, with 8 strong tunes...and it's a "rip off". You have to remember, this is a concept album. Each tune is recorded in a different city wit

The entirety of the Sonic Highways project is truly ground breaking and incredibly well done. With the great doc, Sound City and now this doc series/conceptual album package...Grohl is really a modern day renaissance man. Impressive.

Quote...some people can't just relax and enjoy good music. Ahh yes. The ever humble, 'you just don't get it' argument. How sincere.

After 5 years...this is what they come up with? With musicians in their late 60s, you have to just assume the creative well is pretty dry. This is solid confirmation.

QuoteThe headphones look like they've been pasted on. Terrible cover. The last thing I'm focusing on are the stupid headphones or picking apart how the image is put together. I'm not that anal retentive. It's a nice image and compared to most of the shit covers these days (like their last one), it's a winner.

Best thing I can say about it...nice cover art.

Correct. They announced their reformation, declared that a new record (they said it would be an EP) was in the works and then....about a year later....we get one (weak) song and some vague hints at more to come, at some point after Nick finishes his work with his other band. Talk about a buzz kill.

QuoteCan't view that over here in Septicland. At least Terry K can save some lotion. The show is carried on DirecTV, on Palladia. The Rival Sons episode airs on 10/30.

The new single is 'Try Try Try'. Quietly came out on 9/23. Available on itunes. After a 10 year wait...meh. It sounds like a cast off that wasn't strong enough to make their incredible debut release.

Bob is still a great live performer. Saw him last year. He has several 'behind the scenes' videos on youtube, featuring the stories of how some of his new material was developed. The videos also offer samples. None of the samples did much for me. I'll still give the record a spin when it arrives.

QuoteTP and Seger...both boring. As I said before, the older they get, the further they get from being able to write a hook. Springsteen and Mellencamp belong in the same group for me. Loved them back then, but now the music has no magic anymore. Sounds like you have very reasonable expectations for men who could all be drawing a Social Security check. Shocking that they all sound differen

The Petty record is his best in decades. I love the fact that it's more guitar oriented and 'bluesy'.

Based on the samples I heard, I tend to agree. He's clearly lost the 'Fire Down Below'.

Quotewhat the frig is he doing? Making music....outside of repeating what he has done since he was 20? Offering his interpretation of some classic tunes? Making a covers record? Broadening his musical legacy? Appealing to a more mature/slightly different audience? Repeat after me: it's ok to enjoy something other than the same formulaic music that I have listened to since I was a teenager.

An awful way for anyone to go out. Only 61. Tragic.

Solid record but as usual....the hype machine is off the tracks. Comparing it to the sort of impact/vibe that Appetite had and calling this a "classic"? Please.

For what it is (his interpretation of some classic songs), it's very good. His voice is perfect for most of these tunes...especially the slower stuff. Kind of sad that he took this (covers) route...but the record of all new material is already being made.

Quite impressive...especially so with such a mundane, forgettable piece of their catalog. Damn few acts in the world can still roll out of bed and sell a million+ copies, based on name and reputation alone.

Aerosmith, Kiss, Night Ranger, Journey, Winger, Crue, Cinderella...all kinds of bands that were big in the 70s and 80s and they all have pretty full heads of hair. Most of my contemporaries still have plenty of hair as well. I guess some live in a different reality...where all men lose their hair.

Can't think of any of the 80s bands (who are still touring) that are now (primarily) comprised of bald men. Feel free to give examples.

2 iconic records....that could use proper remasters. Hard to believe that was 35 years ago already.

Nothing they did after their debut came anywhere close to that level of greatness. That record is nothing short of a genre classic. After Firepower....they were dead to me.

QuoteIn my opinion he is doing what he wants as he don't need to prove anything. He still sells CDs and tour ticktes in great numbers. Nothing you state has anything to do with opinion...it's all common knowledge and nobody disputes any part of it. The point is, if all you want to do is tour America with your Dreadnought and a piano, don't tell us it's a "rare opportunity" to catch

To an extent, I have to believe it's about the cash flow. Him, a guitar and the fellow who accompanies him on piano (on a few songs) is a far fatter payday than him and his multi piece band, plus support crew.

So Mr. Adams has announced a new US tour. It's the "Bare Bones" tour. The press release includes this statement: The show provides a rare opportunity for fans to see Adams as they've not seen him before: solo-acoustic and intimate. Uhhh, not really so "rare"...as this is the EXACT show he played LAST TIME HE TOURED THROUGH THE AREA! I was hoping to finally catch the full ba
