What album are you listening to?

Post by dbone » Tue Sep 07, 2010 1:17 am

What music are you currently listening to?
Why do you like it, dislike it. Give us a album and a mini review, share.

I'm currently taking Disturbed Asylum for a test drive.Power metal/hard rock, I'm a disturbed fan from there breakthrough days.This album falls in line with there earlier work. Dan Donnegan plays more lead solos in their later work which is cool. If you like there other stuff you'll likely enjoy this too. It's just another way to die.

Picked up Lamb of god sacrament also I'll check that out minyana

Dire Straits' Bros in Arms found it's way into the cd player this morning. A buddy gave me my first Lamb of God cd this weekend. I would sooner shove screwdrivers into my ears than to listen to that crap again.

The tool. Then I would drink a screwdriver in celebration of having never to listen to that horrible noise again. :lol:

Tried out the Lamb of God, Sacrament.I only listened to it one time through so I wont go into detail.
I thought there is some great guitar work in there. I hear they use Mark IV and now V so I was curious to hear their work.
I prefer somewhat more melodic singing personally.
Edit: I've been listening to these guys quite a bit, took a few listens to absorb the vocal but I would say it's really perfect for what they do, maybe the first band that really screams like this that I've liked. These guys are Metal they are focused and they are loud. YouTube wall of death that's these guys
It's not for the Lawrence Welk crowd.
It's mark IV metal the anti-recto

grabbed a few CDs today for work:

Tom Petty, Mojo - solid songs, great playing, and recorded really well (live in their studio).
REM, Murmur - picked up the deluxe reissue. man, i forgot how cool this record was.
Galaxy 500, This is Our Music - velvet underground-ish 90's alt band who loved the reverb. dude went on to form the band luna.

so far it's been those, and a rough mix of a song i recorded on sunday for a compilation.
Mesa Maverick short head -> Mesa 1x12 3/4 back with Weber Blue Dog
