I nearly bought the new Mastodon the other day but decided to hold off for now. Something burned out for me after Crack The Skye came out... Not that they were getting bad, just that I wasn't connecting to it anymore.

I just picked up Corrosion Of Conformity's "IX" album and giving that a spin this week. Still sinking in but in initial impression is that it's good, though not hitting me as hard as I had hoped.

Crack the Skye is what got me into Mastodon and I went crazy buying everything that was released for that album and also traced their catalog back to the beginning. The Hunter didn't really do it for me. Not bad, but not as cool as CtS. Once More Round The Sun is more like CtS and I love it. Listened to the cd at least once a day for the first week and also deemed it a vinyl worthy purchase.

I was not thrilled at all with the new COC either. It just sounds monotonous, and they don't have any groove happening. That's what I miss about Pepper not being in the band. Definitely not vinyl worthy, which saves me a few $$$. LOL

I've had so much vinyl coming in the last few weeks I didn't even bother listing it on this thread.While reading a Robert Plant biography, I got back into my Led Zep kick and started picking up the deluxe remastered and extended cds and vinyls of the first 3 albums and also got Celebration Day - Mothership - The Song Remains The Same (with 6 extra songs) all on vinyl.
Just to name a few things.

I was extremely tired when I last posted this....so not the best position to enjoy any tunes. I listened to it again yesterday and liked it a lot more...Especially 'Tread Lightly'...man that song kills. A couple of them including the title track still blow though. These actually sound like they're coming from one of the many bands who are trying to copy them.

I just heard the new Mastodon over the weekend, I thought it kicked ass even after only one listen. It's way better than The Hunter, which seems more pieced together and rushed. I think they had more time to record this one, weren't touring as much. I'll be buying it eventually haha

Was at a Half-Price Books the other day and found these for cheap.

Vinyl...
- Baker Gurvitz Army: Elysian Encounter
- The Hunt: Back On The Hunt
- Kansas: The Point Of Know Return
- Kiss: Rock And Roll Over
- Kiss: Lick It Up
- ZZ Top: Afterburner

CD...
- AC/DC: Alternating Current - Live At The Veteran's Memorial Auditorium, Columbus, OH 9.10.1978 [bootleg]
- Cynic: Traced In Air [deluxe edition]
- Iron Maiden: Powerslave [2-CD edition, again]

Already had the Powerslave 2-CD, but it was $6, so couldn't pass it by. And now that I have Kiss' Lick It Up on vinyl, my life is somehow complete.

Mike, have you seen the new documentary on Ginger Baker yet? If not, its well worth checking out. Only thing I didn't like about it was the animation....seems like that's the new trend these days...

The new Mastodon lp is damn great to my ears. I'm listening to it on an almost daily basis. That hasn't happened to me with any new stuff in recent years.

Not too much new cd's/lp's except for the new Wovenhand cd, which isn't bad.

I saw that Ginger Baker documentary once and I was impressed, talking 'bout REAL madmen! Also this guy is talented as fuck.

The new Mastodon is indeed epic and awesome.

I've listened to the new Judas Priest deluxe cd (mind you it's just the Amazon download while I await for the double cd to arrive); but after the second listen, I am pretty damn impressed. There's a few basic Metal 101 tunes, but hell they helped write the book and lessons on that so it was kind of expected, but there's a lot of great tracks that are brutal, haunting, beautiful, heavy... it's a damn fine Priest release. The more I listen the more I like it. Way better than what I expected.

Led Zeppelin - lll - deluxe remastered double vinyl
Steven Wilson - Cover Versions (cd)
Mastodon - Once More 'Round the Sun - double vinyl

I wasn't impressed at all when I first listened to the new Priest album but after a few more spins, I really got into it. It's nothing groundbreaking, and nothing I would say is their greatest song ever, but just good solid Priest. Nice variety of tunes.

Hey Lee, I did watch that. I'm with you on the animation, but it didn't take away too much for me. My biggest beef was that they glossed over a few periods I was interested in, like the Baker Gurvitz Army and Ginger's time with Hawkwind which wasn't even mentioned. From Dave Brock's liner notes in the Levitation box set, it sounds like Baker was quite disruptive during his tenure with those guys, haha.

Picked up a few CDs this week...
- Iron Maiden: Killers [1995 2-disc US edition, FINALLY!]
- Magma: Zühn Ẁöhl Ünsaï - Live 1974
- Ozzy Osbourne: The Ultimate Sin [1995 22-bit remaster]

About to sit back and take in some classic Maiden...

Some vinyl...
- Judas Priest: Redeemer Of Souls
- Misfits: Legacy Of Brutality
- Snake Nation: s/t album

Funny, in listening to the Snake Nation again for the first time in a few years, and isn't too different from what Corrosion Of Conformity is doing right now.

Judas Priest - stained class, british steel, point of entry (back on black vinyl reissues)
Judas Priest - redeemer of souls (double vinyl)
Overkill - White Devil Armory (deluxe cd with 2 bonus tracks)
Rush - Presto (limited edition gold hybrid sacd)
Yes - Heaven & Earth (cd) ... I wasn't thrilled with the one song i did listen to online, so i hope this is better than that and i will like it. I loved Fly From Here, but that had a lot to domwith Trevor Horn writting and producing it and most of it was written during the Drama era of the 80s. I doubt this new album will come close to that... we shall see (well, hear)

I've just moved my office in my house from one room to another and took the time to go through all my music again. Funny the stuff you were into at one phase of your life you thought was great and now....ehhhhh....Anyway I took the stuff to the used shop and traded for:

Rollins Band: Weight
(Never got into these guys before when they were around...but I'm a huge fan of Melvin Gibbs playing so thought I'd check them out)
Dusty Springfield-Dusty in Memphis
Dinosaur Jr- Where You Been
(I was watching an interview on youtube with J Mascis doing one of those rig rundowns....my daughter is there with me and she goes "Who's the goofy one?)
Jane's Addiction-Jane's Addiction
Mercyful Fate-Melissa($4....wow!)
Santana's Greatest Hits-(You know the first one...mainly got it for the cover...the black guy holding the white pigeon..which i thought was pretty cool)
Wes Montgomery-Impressions:The Verve Jazz Sides
The Essence of George Benson(This one is pretty interesting as its a collection of his stuff just from 1966.....back you know when he was still playing funked out bebop)
Adrian Belew-Mr. Music Head (I remember somebody from this forum telling me to stay away from Belew's solo work as it pretty much all sucked...it was the Mean Mustard guy actually....I should've heeded that warning)

Well saying Adrian Belew's music 'sucks' is of course juvenile & ignorant(I was tired sorry)....Mustard didn't say that...I think he used the term 'weak' to describe it. But I think if you look at that album specifically 'weak' is a good description. Definitely would've benefited from someone else producing it....(an outside voicd to to say...."hey, that vocal line sucks Adrian...why don't you try this instead")when I saw Belew did it himself...that was an immediate red flag. Not that the album doesn't have some good ideas... they just don't seem fully realized. Having said this I'm really curious as to what his other albums sound like...gonna youtube and find out. The guy is phenomenally talented and I love what he did with Bowie and KC...........

As amazing as Adrian Belew is as a guitarist, his solo work is an acquired taste. Not a big fan of it myself, though I totally dig the guy as a player and love his work with KC.

Working in the city this week (and over the weekend) and managed to nab these CDs...

- Clutch: Earth Rocker [deluxe edition 2CD/1DVD]
- Cryptic Slaughter: Money Talks [Relapse expanded reissue]
- Iron Maiden: Running Free - Run To The Hills [First 10 Years CD]
- Midday Veil: Eyes All Around
- T2: 1971-1972
- Yes: Drama [expanded remaster]

Midday Veil is a local Seattle band I've been digging on lately. Kind of trippy psych, but super smooth. Worth checking out. http://middayveil.com/

WARNING WARNING WARNING!!!
DO NOT BUY THE NEW YES ALBUM 'HEAVEN & EARTH'
hands down it is the most boring album they have EVER released. I would rather listen to grass grow! The only good thing about it is Roger Dean did the art work (although not his best, but still) Get Trevor Horn back to write, produce, and hell, let him sing also. This Jon Anderson clone the have writes and sings in a way that could put me into a coma, and be happy I don't have to hear him anymore.

OVERKILL - White Devil Armory deluxe cd with 2 extra songs)- FUCKIN' AWESOME (lots of different vinyl releases are on the way along with the limited edition cd deluxe box set)

Judas Priest - Killing Machine (180 gram vinyl)

I listened to that new 'Yes' cd on the web. Or rather, I tried...

It's even worse than 'Fry From Here'. This time they didn't even try. Lame uninspired shit. I spent my money on useful stuff: The new Blues Pills cd and a crate of beer. There...

Got the new LOOK WHAT I DID..........Only just started listening. I'll go ahead and predict that this is gonna be THE prog album of the year. Any fans of Thought Industry and FNM should really check these guys out..........

I really enjoy FLY FROM HERE (even picked it up on limited edition vinyl box set)and listen to it a lot. I am a huge fan of the DRAMA album and FFH is the perfect continuation of that. I wish I would have listened to sample before forking over my $$$ for this new piece of shit, because I wouldn't have ordered it at all. live and learn.... again

Maybe I'm too harsh on 'Fly from Here'. I bought it and I tried to like it. It has some great moments, especially on the title track. And I liked 'Drama' very much. But it just didn't convince me like a Yes album should. Too much Buggles/Asia...

At least 'Keys To Ascension' had 'Mind Drive'. Apart from that most Yes stuff since '90125' bored me. And this new crap is another low point.

Fly From Here is the best thing they have done since 90125. I've been listening to YES and collecting them for so long it's just an impulse purchase without thinking about it.... STUPID!!! They have released too many albums that just collect dust on my shelf, and every now and then I will pull them out and listen to them again and quickly realize why I had to blow the dust off of them.

YES sure ain't no KING CRIMSON... that's for damn sure! At least Fripp knows when to do ProjeKCts and when to put the KC name on something (don't prove me wrong Robert with this new release LOL)

If that new snippet of a song that was released recently is any indication of where KC is heading, they're not going to disappoint. While Yes sounds old and tired, RF still has the fire.
