I'm hearing that Dave Ellefson's time in Megadeth is up, something to do with a fan video interaction.

Someone showed him I book that I wrote about his guitar picking approach at a clinic. He motioned for it, took out a pen and wrote ASSHOLE on the cover with an arrow pointing at my face. His fan sent me a photo of it. I should frame that.

It's probably the one classic song I'd drop from their setlist but I'll be damned if they don't still make it sound awesome.

"Juuuuuuustin Hawkins rides again... *contemplative stare* ...again". Great channel. All of his thoughts are very considered and articulate.

It seems like mixing for Streaming and ear buds has become such a priority that things sound like a muddy turd on traditional systems. Where's the sparkle these days?

Dude is hearing-impaired. I'm convinced. Even with no voice, anyone with self-awareness would course-correct and avoid notes etc.

The audience didn't know they purchased tix for a spoken word gig. A major contender for "singers you wish would use tracks on stage". Obviously, he doesn't have much of a voice anymore but I half wonder if it's his hearing too. He sings like someone with a hearing impairment.

Sounds like something that might have just failed the cut on the first 2 Sonata Arctica albums. I can dig it but I get why people would consider it a double cheeseburger (hold the burger).

I don't know if it's pre-emptive of people's earbud listening habits, but I've noticed that mastering has taken a step back on several big albums. Cobb's Europe albums are a little like this where there's a lot of low mid rumble and some cut missing from rhythm guitars and snare drums. Not a whole lot of stereo width and sparkle either. And what is with the kick drum sound on track 2?

I've had Spotify Premium but after a trial offer with Apple Music, I stayed with that for the audio quality. I haven't really missed Spotify because I don't care about playlists, recommendations, or artist pages.

The whole album is fantastic. I've had it since last May. I really hope people don't sleep on it. There was a distinct apathy towards this album when I mentioned it here in the past.

In the 80s, Mike Varney capitalised on the rise of shred guitar (and probably massively helped it) with Shrapnel Records. In the 90s, he wanted that Dream Theater money, so he created Magna Carta to launch a lot of DT-sounding bands and other prog, and also solo projects with DT members. In the 2000s, he went for the Fusion and blues guitar scene with the Tone Center and Blues Bureau labels

Mostly local bands but one I can think of is Deep Purple on the Australian tour with Journey in 2012. They weren't bad, just boring and I was there to see Journey.

I liked the Clockwise tracks The Tales of King Solitude, parts 1:3 and 2:3 and was bummed that Benny never released a third Clockwise album to complete it.

It sounds like AI is writing their songs at this point. I always get the albums and appreciate their influence, but they're really just making music in circles. This is better than the previous song because it's basically a Pull Me Under reboot.

I want to know why music doesn't sound like it's mastered anymore. Where's the stereo spread and sparkle?
