Quotetreaclefingers Quotebam QuoteHairball Sounds like elevator music, but maybe that's what they were going for? Something you might here at dentists office, or at a grocery store...bland and harmless background music. The power — of a tremendously powerful song - is gone. To me, it’s just a fading echo of what was once great. Perhaps unintentionally, an analogy of the band itself?

That version of 'Pride' is certainly different, but I certainly wouldn't call it "suicide," or "embarrassing." A band can do anything they want with its songs. In my mind, this version is much less anthemic, obviously more intimate. The high harmony on the chorus sounds like it came from the original 1984 recording... Bono has shown he can still hit those notes

RE: Lindsey Buckingham's tribute I love Lindsey Buckingham, but his ego comes through in this half-hearted tribute. Nothing about how amazing her songs were, or how amazing she was as an artist. It's all about "she and I" and "our body of work," etc. There was nothing untrue in what he wrote, but it comes off sounding a little too self promoting and not enough Chr

It's the best of the last 5 albums, imho. I think VL is maybe equally good... but DW, SW and ABB are far behind, I think. I still occasionally listen to each of these, though!

EC and Steve Nieve did a handful of shows back in the 90s that resulted in a limited ed. live boxed set that is fabulous. Watching the Detectives with just elec. guitar and piano is divine. The songs from the excellent All This Useless Beauty album (his most recent at the time) are also fabulous. Those NYC sets will be superb.

Antonio Sanchez in October, Portsmouth, NH-- brilliant drummer, should be a joy. Wilco in Raykjavik in April, all 3 shows. Never done anything like that before. Never been to Iceland. So excited.

I LOVE the 'Presence' album. I love the raw vocals, the very few overdubs, the guitar sound, the punk/prog sound (It's the ONLY punkish/prog rock crossover album ever made, imho), the intricate and exceptionally tight rhythms. Like 'Undercover' for the Stones, I think it's LZ's smartest and most underrated album. I have a lot of love for both Presence and Underc

I agree with all of the above comments... Robert Plant is brilliant these days. And has been for quite some time. His body of solo work is excellent and diverse.

I remember hoping George, Paul, and Ringo would play with, say, Elvis Costello or someone. Elvis did All You Need Is Love, which teased my fantasy a bit. I also hoped the Stones would play! I remember the MTV folks kept saying, "All the members of the Stones are reportedly present in Philly!" I was most excited about Led Zeppelin... which was a sloppy performance all around. Agreed on t

Amps may impact the way a band sounds on stage, but the way the album sounds is largely dependent upon post production. Mixing and mastering can make a fat show sound thin and a thin show sound fat! And that doesn't even take overdubs into consideration.

The Pogues did a fabulous cover of HTW. Cat Power did my favorite cover of Satisfaction.

I love Charlie. Loved his style-- his early playing and his late, "lazy" styles and habits, were always perfect for me. BUT... SJ is CRUSHING it. He is tight. He is solid. He's perfect.

Shattered, 1978 live. Four outrageous bashes on the crash cymbal. Nothing like it. Just launches the song into a different realm.

I agree, best live performance ever of that song. Gave me a new respect for the Foo Fighters, who I never cared for much. They nailed it, tricky rhythm and all. Stones just generally blast through it Chuck Berry style, but the Fighters crushed it, gave it superb energy, lifted Mick off his damn feet and Mick sang his heart out. It was so good to see that energy again. Legendary performance.

In Bruce's excellent autobiography he discusses his substance use, namely alcohol, and his depression (and the antidepressants he desperately relies on), and I was left unconvinced he had it all under control. The ad was weird indeed. I didn't watch the SB, but I saw that ad. Love Bruce. Sounds like an error in judgment on his part. Both the DWI and the ad!

Yes, makemeburnthecandle, that is what I have heard from Fauci as well. Just Tuesday morning he was interviewed live, and I heard him say that if all goes well, we are looking at returning to normal in fall. I have also heard other health experts at the national level say similar things.. "I am hopeful to attend a baseball game in a stadium filled to capacity this summer," was what on

I didn't like Yes as a kid, but definitely went through a Rush phase... then as I got older, I enjoyed revisiting old Yes albums (I studied them as a young drummer, but didn't get into them at the time) and now I have an appreciation for early Yes. Rush, on the other hand, comes off with a bit more of a cheese factor to me these days. I loved Moving Pictures and 2112 as a kid, but can

James Jagger should play Mick... I know, I know, absolutely not going to happen. but oh my. Or Rami Malek, if he hadn't already played Freddie... He would have been an even better Mick Jagger, I believe. Yeah, this project makes me nervous as much as it does excited. I'll watch, but with much anxiety over how it could so easily fail and fail badly.

Bloody heck. That song, posted a few days ago, the single... It's just another load of copped Zeppelinesque riffs and Bonhamesque fills and Plantesque vocalizations. There is really nothing expressively creative about this band. I can only imagine their fame is due to taking a portion of the Zeppelin formula, a watered down one at that, and offering it up to the many young people who simpl

I agree w/ Gaslight. Undercover by a miiiile. Undercover is the last truly great album by The Rolling Stones, imho. This is the band at their most mature and intelligent as artists. I still love listening to this album, and I bought it the day it was released, when I was 11. SW, otoh, was an album written and recorded for the stadium. It’s not nearly as awful as Dirty Work, but it’s over-reve

Sounds very rough, doesn’t sound like Charlie even? I think those horns may be synth horns as well. Just 7+ minutes of a riff with other ideas woven in. That’s my take.

Devils and Dust was a great western themed album, as well as some of Ghost of Tom Joad and Nebraska. Bruce has had a fascination with the American west most of his life. The Western Stars album is influenced by “70’s California AM radio songs.” Let the man write what he wants, he’s earned it. I like the album and look forward to the E Street Band record whenever it comes our way.

Interesting to see this is acknowledged by Keith. With very few exceptions, I have not enjoyed the live recordings from Steel Wheels on nearly as much as all those that came before. I never saw the Stones before then, I was too young. I loved witnessing every live show I’ve seen from ‘89 on, but yes, the massive production and bigger band indeed lost my interest musically. There has always bee

I don't understand why the drums are so sparse and conservative. If it's Zak playing, he has every capability to turn it on much more than that, and I feel this song really starves for a richer, more vibrant beat, and less effect on the drum. It sounds like a Who song, EXCEPT for the drums. I like Zak's playing in the bits of live performances I've seen, but here the song j

Yeah, BTZ is hideous. I was 14 when this record came out, so very desperate for the release of the album. I liked Harlem Shuffle enough, but there was over a month between that single and the album release. I just remember one song after another thinking, man, this is just not good. BTZ was embarrassingly bad. I couldn’t decide if it was worse than Hold Back or not, but it was painfully bad.

MT played the jam portion of this on a solo tour in ‘99, and I stood right in front of him in a club and watched his fingers as he played the solo. Just a magical experience. I’ve enjoyed seeing it at Stones shows, including ‘13 with MT, but the studio version is just unmatched in terms of the performance of the whole song.
