And Midnight Vultures? Have no clue, why this isn't something for me.
Actual I had to like it, but I don't.
So if you, Slay, feel the same, I'm with you.

Listening to Guero makes me smile the whole time. Just say: So what'cha want?

Need to listen to it some more. It didn't hit me the way 'In Absentia' or the older albums did. Some songs fail to catch my interest or just sound too familiar. On the other hand, some other songs, like the opening track, are just as great as you expect them to be.

My dad just came home with about 500 vinyls from a guy in the classifieds and I was astounded to, while browsing through them, find the following, all sleeveless :

Venom - Black Metal (Italian pressing)
Venom - Welcome To Hell (Banzai)
Destruction - Eternal Devastation (Banzai)
Destruction - Sentence Of Death (Banzai)
Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What
Razor - Executioner's Song

That's going to make for a very metal evening. \m/.

High On Fire- Blessed Black Wings(looking forward to this baby)

Genghis Tron-Cloak of Love(see my thread in Astronomy Domine)

BTW, the Cult of Luna I got recently is pretty awful. I made it through five songs then wanted to choke the singer......

That's exactly what I feel about those albums as well. And that tribute to Prince album (aka Midnight Vultures) seemed wonderful on paper, but didn't work that well.

Yes, I agree on 'Midnite V.'. But 'Sea Change'??? I'm surprised that the finely tuned ears of my two friends do not pick up on the absolute brilliance of this album....Its an otherworldly melancholy which stabs me in my guts every time. Course not every song is perfect but listen to track three and tell me you're not swept away.
Well atleast we agree on the latest...

There are two reasons for me now to
give "Sea Change" another try. "Guero" is
one of them and the other is you, Mez.
Maybe I wasn't in the right mood when I
first listend to it. Mr. Slaytanic
Wehrmacht, will you give "Sea Change"
another try too?

"Finely tuned ears", I love that.

I'll check it out, I'll check it out.

I just wanted to stick my neck out there and say that Midnite V is an awesome album. Don't get me wrong, I really like Guero so far. But it has to be the least risk he's taken with an album in his career. This doesn't mean I don't like it (I do, quite a bit), just an observation.
And I know, just because an album is risky doesn't make it good, I just happen to think that both Midnite V and Sea Change are both risky and great. But then again, I am a fan of Angel Rat! So what does that tell ya!

On a side note, Hey Schroed, I just heard that Robert Fripp will be the opening act for Porcupine Tree in Los Angeles! How cool is that?

Gotta jump on that Beck thread!

I loved Sea Change, I thought it was really epic, the strings are just fantastic. I also liked Mutations, it's one of those albums you can listen with guitar in hand, just struming and humming. And, well, I kinda liked MVultures too. Good car music.

And Mez, remember that Gainsbourg tribute I sent you? Well, "Paper Tiger" on Sea Change is a total rip-off/tribute/pastiche of a Gainsbourg song called Melody Nelson. I mean, it's so fucking identical it's unbelievable!

Still haven't heard Guero, tho. Only the Beach Boys-like song (Girl?), the other day, on the radio.

Porcupine Tree - Deadwing

It's... okay, I guess. I'll have to listen to it more than two or three times to get into it. Though I can't imagine how I could like the spoken/whispered bits in the title track and Halo, which ruin both songs for me.

DAMN, this cd floored me upon first listen. I love all the tracks, the whispered voices (which just enhance the theme of the cd), the words, the music, the 2 smokin' Belew solos. In Absentia was incredible but this surpasses it. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here is a fuckin epic that has riffs in it that are gauranteed to get you a speeding ticket.

yesterday I received 7 different cd singles of DARK STAR from and ebay auction... very cool

also Porcupine Tree live april 3 2005 in Bristol (bootleg)

Alright, so I've had a few more listens with "Deadwing", and tried to ignore the spoken bits.
The first track I still don't like at all (except for those cool sequencers), Shallow is good, Lazarus is fucking excellent, Halo is very good, ASBNH is wonderful, Mellotron Scratch is not bad, Open Car is fine -- good chorus, SOSB is also very good (reminds me of Slave Called Shiver, with a King Cobb Steelie-like groove) and Glass Arm Shattering is typically Floydian.
The rerecording of Shesmovedon is nothing fantastic.
Which is to show that the album is growing on me.

Trio played first, and then a band called The Locust who are pretty intense!

Actually, they did play April 26th, 2005, of course!

Fantomas was perfect. The songs they played came from all four albums, but the bulk was from SA.

From the first album they did 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 14 (last song), 15, 18, 19, 21, 25, 28.

From Director's Cut, they played "Experiment In Terror", "The Omen", and "Twin Peaks".

Delirium Cordia - Played the beginning up until the part with the "requim" vocals, the sound of various surgical instruments being fumbled with, and the wierd bass-y part with the doctors' voices saying something like "charged as 20- CLEAAAR- *squish* ah... theres a spike.... we're gonna lose this guy", and the part with the hi-hat/ vocals "chicka-chicka -chee-ka-ka" part.

SA - Basically all the best tracks (8, 10, 6, 1, 2, etc) but it seemed like they threw in bits from each track. I had only heard the new one a couple times so I don't know some of the other songs but I could tell of course it was all new material.

You MUST see and hear this spectacle!!!
