Producers often put their hand out for points instead of a fee. It's how you get 13 writers on a pop track that goes "yeah, alright, uh huh, shorty sup girl?" hahaha

Out Of This World by Europe. It's one of those "every time feels like the first time" albums for me.

As a kid, I thought Side B blew chunks, but I'll have to revisit. It'll be interesting to see what a difference 30 years make.

> > How different/better was the Le Baron stuff? Less cheese, no outside writers. Although some people don't like the "heavier deep purple" sound of their recent albums, they were already nudging that sound with songs like "Rainbow Warrior".

Europe - Prisoners in Paradise, dropping "Long Time Coming", "Don't Know How To Love No More", "Yesterday's News" the original title track "Break Free" and all the Le Baron stuff in favour of "Mind In The Gutter" and "Til My Heart Beats Down Your Door" et al. Pretty much, they should have been able to release the album they had a yea

There's lots of of Mariah in there but it's layered with a girl who can't really sing well. The vibrato and trills are gone but there are plenty of Mariah tones in there if you can separate the mix in your head a little.

They do it really well. I wish it had a pre-chorus to break up the E chord abundance but I still dig it. I guess the name is kind of an Yngwie tie-in since the guitarist's style is very Yngwie and Norum with some JSS kind of vocals on top. I'd love to hear more from them.

The Arnel thing is odd. I'm gonna guess the proposed movie was going to be like a Rockstar ripoff, focused on the singer with the band being secondary. Not interested in seeing that. We already got that documentary, which started to look more like a World Vision doco by the halfway mark.

They seem to have been lost in direction for a long time. Their big sell back in the day was getting your stock on Amazon, then pushed getting your music on iTunes, then Spotify, then they went into books, merch, web-hosting and Youtube royalty collection. Now they've sold off or backed out of most things and companies like DistroKid haven taken a lot of the online distribution market shar

Writing guitar books is my crust, and book sales have taken a dive by 50% with more speculated by my publisher. Maybe I should tell people that there are 3 sheets of toilet paper at the end of each book.

Working from home is the everyday for me, but there's a weird feeling. Everything outside looks the same, but there's just this weird vibe when I go out and see other people moving about. It's pretty gloomy. You can feel everyone's dread.
