RUSH - Beyond The Lighted Stage

The format is the formulaic (and expertly done) band interview + celebrity fans interview + rare images. Which always works, btw, especially when band in question is Rush. Wonderful stuff, obviously a must have!

CLUTCH - From Bealle Street to Oblivion (remastered and extended and properly packaged) You know damn well, I'll be buying all these extended remastered albums the band is rereleasing.

BOOK - MUSTAINE (I can't put this book down... been waiting many months for this to come out considering Amazon originally had it as coming out early this year when I preordered it; but it's worth the wait)

Curious to hear what you guys think of the Mustaine bio once you have read it. I pretty interested in the story, but not sure how much of the guy I can stomach. Love his playing, but not sure I'd ever wanna hang out with him, if you get my drift.

Just finished Ozzy's book and found it to be a very enjoyable read. Kind of drops off towards the end for me... The pre-Sabbath and Sabbath years are nicely covered, but he really glazes over the musical aspects of his solo career, aside from the comparatively brief Randy Rhoads era.

The Mustaine book is a very honest, insightful look at his life. He does a great job explaining things and being able to admit he's fucked up a bunch times. He's not afraid to admit when he's been wrong and cewrtainly doesn't hide any of his drug problems.
I'm not finished the book yet but so far this is hands down one of the best autobiographical music books I've read.

I agree with ya on the OZZY book, where it just seems like he gave up writing about his life towards the ends just to get the book finished. I was SO looking forward to reading so much more about what went on the band and the conflicts that arose with the remasters, and all the other shit that got skipped over. The end became a bad Reader's Digest version of what happened and left out huge chucks of his career.

finished the Mustaine book today and I must say this is hands down my favorite music autobiography. Dave covers everything in his life and doesn't sugar coat anything or act like the egotistical asshole he's been know to be in the past.I've always been a fan from day one and always leaned to the Megadeth camp more than the Metallica side (although I do dig them too). Lots of great pics and info.

GET IT

Thanks for the brief and to the point review schroeder. Apparently, Mustaine will be signing his book at Border's when they play here in 2 weeks. Not sure I'll go as it may be a total mad house.

Enjoying Ulver's Perdition City lots these days. Other than that, haven't had time to use my gift card yet to buy anything new. Any suggestions? I'm so out of it lately.

Iron Maiden - Final Frontier (limited 'mission' edition... which is basically an interesting case to hold the disc and booklet... whoop de doo)

BOOK: Stewart Copeland - Strange Things Happen: A life with the Police, Polo, and Pygmies (very interesting so far)

BOOK: Grunge is Dead (looking forward to reading this next)

Maiden's Final Frontier - Ha, haven't even unwrapped this one yet.

Ozzy's new one...hmmm, not sure I like it but thanks to that nice gift card it cost me zero dollars.

My first spin of Final Frontier had me thinking they should have called it "Recycled" but the second and third spin had me thinking "this is actually a damn final album". I love "A Matter Of Life & Death" there's a lot of killer tunes and epic tunes on theres. I also found new respect from "Dance Of Death" after seeing some of the tracks performed live on the live DVD.

I also think SCREAM is one of OZZY's best in a long time.

Still didn't buy it, but after repeated listens, I still didn't "get" Ozzy's new one. I think it's on par with Black Rain and the previous one, which at least for me is not good.

As for Final Frontier, it's definetely a grower, as Schroeder pointed. But from first listen I think Satellite 13... The Final Frontier is pure genius, it's been a long time since I was last impressed with a Maiden song the way I am with the opener of the new album.

i didnt buy final frontier yet, but another guy at work has been playing it alot. i gotta say either i just havent listened to it enough in private at home, or it actually is how i think it is... i just dont find anything that impressive or stand-out-ish about it. i liked a matter of life and death much more than this one.

lately i've been listening to ALOT of ulver - and luna, perdition city is also the one i cant get enough of!

lastnight i added:

ulver - blood inside
future sound of london - dead cities
deathspell omega - si monvmentvm...

to the collection. i've been in way more of a chill out/ ambient mood.

Yup. What is it about that one? I seriously am addicted. LOVE the last tune and will play it over and over. Sickening to think bout it.

'Perdition City' is one of my alltime favourite albums. It has such great atmosphere! Other Ulver cd's I really like are 'Blood Inside' and 'Shadows Of The Sun'.

Agreed, AngelRat...love both of those too. It's all new to me, so right now it's sticking in my brain quite nicely.

Final Frontier doesn't have the hooks that AMOL&D does and it's a bit more experimental (for lack of a better word) and laid back. The opener is definitely an attention grabber and one of the best tracks on the album.

I've still never picked up Ozzy's Black Rain cd, which I eventually will since I have everything else in his catalog. Ozzy can be hit or miss and I have feeling he had a lot of input from the producer Kevin Churko in the writing of this album. Lots of catchy songs with a lot of hook. Maybe because I liked it from the first listen it might mean I'll get bored with it if I listen to it too much... so I'll try not to overdose on spinning it every day.

shadows of the sun is pretty amazing - i listen to that one alot as well. listened to blood inside this morning and got into it, but cant wait to play it a few more times to really get lost in all the parts. "newer" (non-black metal stuff) ulver is also a recent discovery for me, so its great to slowly buy each cd and relax.

Picked up the new Maiden and while it's not hitting me like a ton of bricks, it's slowing growing on me... pretty much like their others since rejoining with Smith & Dickinson. I do like it. Like Schroeder, I bought the 'mission edition' and was not so impressed with that aspect of the puchase. Just a simple metal clamshell case with a sticker on the back and no extra goodies inside. The online bonus content was sparse and weak... even the bonus video stuff was streaming only, so you can't download and keep. Blah.

Some other recent finds, all compact disc.
- Amon Duul II: Vive La Trance [remaster]
- Can: Monster Movie [remaster]
- Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Parasao UFO: La Novia
- Destruction: Live Without Sense [Steamhammer Records version]
- Destruction: Inventor Of Evil
- Destruction: D.E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N.

I don't know what you all think, but I gotta say, Destruction still brings the thrash riffage in a mean way... Hadn't really listened to DEVOLUTION before, but it's hitting pretty heavy.
