Hello!

Still so quite in fixx-land...
Maybe you all like to tell for which kind of record (cd/DVD) you last spend some money?!

I got myself the new dvd from saga. There are a lot of old songs on it. But after watching and listening I do not know if anybody needs that kind of stuff today.

Very interesting when Leadsinger Michael Sadler tells about Rupert Hine "forced" him to sing the middlepassage from "Wind him up".Very early in the morning Sadler was woken up by a technician, got some headphones and a microphone. Then a voice (R. Hine, sitting in the studio) told him to sing - and of course to stay in bed.

Stay tuned and take care,
heimo

Dave Gahan's (lead singer of Depeche Mode) first solo CD, Paper Monsters, along with Ghost In the Machine (The Police), which I hadn't heard in years. Still sounds great.

Just bought tickets this morning for Dave's show at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.

Just bought Train's new CD called My Private Nation. They ousted the songwriter and rhythm guitarist and boy does it show. The new album sucks!

Ok, I take that back, I just wanted to say that because it sounded funny. Without the lead songwriter the lyrics are very shallow. Without the presence of his acoustic guitar the atmosphere is much to electric (for them).

It's OK, but I think I need to warm up to it.
Cheers
Steve

Dave Matthews Band - the one with Crush on it... good stuff!:)

that dave matthews one is pretty good.

Last one I bought was Neil Finn's "One All". It has about 5 songs I really like on it.

Last Dvd I bought was "Office Space". I enjoy that movie because that's generally the way I feel about jobs.

Next on my list is a fixx cd and the dvd for "better off dead" in keeping with the fixx theme.

Last CD I bought was the soundtrack to the Matrix Reloaded. Not as good as the first, or as good as I had hoped. I have the remaster of Kate Bush's _Hounds of Love_ on order...

Last DVD I bought was A Bug's Life (collector's edition), mostly for the little one.

The last DVD I bought was the Led Zeppelin one.....Rain, it is incredible.

Yep - I list Trisha Yearwood as one of my all time greatest musical influences. Amazing live show, stage presence and a willingness to meet with her fans, another thing on par with the Fixx.

You will not be disappointed with the Zep DVD. It's worth it just for the Knebworth show but it includes so much more.

last cd was King's X, 'Black Like Sunday'. Not exactly in the same vein as 'The Fixx', but great fun.
Got a chance to see both bands in August and September, too :D :D ;) ;)

I purchased Geoff Tate's selftitled (he is the lead singer of Queensryche), Queensryche's Greatest Hits, and also their Live:Evolution as well as Aaliyah's I Care 4 U, and The Fixx's Millenium Collection. I think I have worn the tracks off of that one! But I listen to them as much as I listen to Queensryche, so that means now I have to get a tattoo that says The Fixx since I already have Queensryche's tri-ryche! Anyone got any really good pictures of their name so I can get it done?:D

itizuki
07-10-2003, 10:47 AM
hey precious... I enjoy Queensryche as well. don't have any tattoos but I did sing Silent Lucidity a few weeks back in a karaoke bar. welcome to the board!

preciousstone75
07-10-2003, 10:59 AM
Yes, I have been known to do some karaoke myself. My favorite to do is "Open Arms" by Journey. I have yet to do "Silent Lucidity", but one I would really like to try is "Chasing Blue Sky" from their Greatest cd. You know their new one is due out on the 22nd, so I am going to find that one quick! "Tribe" is the name of that one, so be on the lookout!

Have you heard Geoff's solo effort yet?

Steve Pariseau
07-10-2003, 09:21 PM
I used to be bitter about Queensryche. You see I lost a bet over Silent Lucidity. When it hit the airwaves I was so sure it was a new Pink Floyd tune that I bet a buddy of mine $50 that it was from a soon to be released Pink Floyd album.

Needless to say, I had to pay up.

I really enjoy their 1990 and 1997 albums. Those are the only two I have at this point.

Those of you who dig Queensryche might check Green Vinyl Dream.

Green Vinyl Dream are rising stars currently touring with Pat Benetar and Niel Giraldo.

Very Queensryche.
Very Journey

Very talented.

preciousstone75
07-10-2003, 09:31 PM
:D I have everything they ever put out- here's a list to build from:

Self titled debut Queensryche
The Warning
Rage for Order
Operation:Mindcrime
Empire
Operation:Livecrime
Promised Land
Hear in the Now Frontier
Q2K
Crown Jewels
Greatest Hits
Live:Evolution
and the upcoming Tribe
as well as three soundtracks:
History of Western Civilization 2 (directed by Penelope Spheeris)
The Adventures of Ford Fairlane ("Last Time In Paris")
Last Action Hero ("Real World")

There are only three of those I don't own yet, including the new release. You should really check out their Greatest, because at first I thought "Silent Lucidity" was the best. . . and then I heard "Chasing Blue Sky", which was recorded during the sessions for Hear in the Now Frontier. It actually reminds me of the Fixx now that I think about it!

preciousstone75
07-10-2003, 09:59 PM
:D "Chasing Blue Sky" can be found on their Greatest collection as well as a full band version of "Someone Else". It is really worth listening to, and Queensryche has worked with Lisa Dalbello as well. I know she has worked with The Fixx; they recorded "Gonna Get Close To You" in 1986 on Rage For Order. That is another track I recommend because of its haunting imagery. You can see it on Building Empire, their DVD/VHS release. Mindcrime and Livecrime are both available on VHS, but you can find a limited edition version of it on VHS (livecrime) that is also available as a DVD. You will enjoy it immensely!

You know how crazy you feel when you hear a certain song, and it's like they play it everywhere, and when you find out what it is, you feel totally retarded? That is the feeling I had when I found out the name to this song "How Soon Is Now" by The Smiths. They played it on The Faculty, The Craft, and a few more other movies (don't quote me on this, but I think it was on "Heathers" as well) and "Blood and Roses" (the name of the artists escape me right now- I'm having another bonehead moment) that was featured in a film called Dangerously Close. Has anyone seen this movie, and please tell me about it! I love that song!

Rain
07-19-2003, 10:20 PM
Are you perhaps thinking of the Smithereens? I haven't seen the movie, but the Smithereens had several hits, "Blood & Roses" being a predominant one.

Thanks for the recommendation.

The Coldplay CD is an excellent choice. I really love the lyrics that Chris Martin comes up with. That whole set is great. I especially like "Amsterdam" & "God Put A Smile Upon Your Face". As for the Fixx CDs well it goes without saying that I like both of them....since we are here on the board and all.

Clive3
01-22-2004, 08:52 AM
I have to agree the coldplay albums are impresive.... I am happy to see a group like them, that is not like rap or really heavy music, to hit MTV and all the music stations the way that they hav. they are a great group an hope to hear from more of them in the future...

The problem with the Dixie Chicks was NEVER their talent or ability to put good music together.

The problem with the ladies happens to be their fair-weather patriotism and intellectual dishonesty. To quote a book cover, they should just "shut up and sing."

As it is now, I found plenty of other places to spend my money on. A Greatest Hits Fixx CD is at the top of my list.:cool:

Trisha Yearwood, she's my No1 country babe, been a big fan since 1991 when Bob Harries used to play here on his UK Radio 1 late night show, that guy played some immense stuff, including the Fixx, Dan Reed Network, Jeff Healey amongst others.
Trisha Yearwood, she tours here so seldom, caught her at Birmingham in 2001, favourite track if I had to choose would be Real Live Woman.

Wow. I got quoted. People really do read what you post. I recently discovered that a Yahoo search results in some of my posts. Good reason to be careful what one writes. The whole world is watching.

The last albums I bought were life for rent by Dido and Sacred Love by Sting. I usually don't buy pop albums, but what the heck, they were on sale. Dido was OK for a while, but I stopped listening. I'm with tenohtwo on Sting. (see "Fixx poster in Propaganda picture" thread). Mercury Falling took a while to get to like. Sting's last two albums stay on the shelf.

I just had to replace my copy of "Viva Hate" by Morrissey, so that was the last one I bought. Ironically, the next CD I buy will be his new album, "You Are The Quarry", which comes out in May. I heard the new single, and it's very cool. Reminiscent of "Your Arsenal"

Spent $16.00 on an Indigo Girls album called All That We Let In. But it comes with a 25 minute video DVD to lessen the wallet shock. I learned of it while listening to a contemporary adult alternative radio station from Madison, WI.

Just saw the DVD. Very nice acoustic portion of a recent concert in New York. (Dec 2003).

I bought The Fixx CD Stages One and I am currently blasting Saga's DVD All Areas.

For those of you that have not heard of Saga, you should read some of the threads people have posted. They have some great songs like Don't Be Late, No Regrets, Wind Him Up, Humble Stance and many, many more.

For me, Christmas filled up my CD rack...I have no room left! Of course, we do tend to buy a lot of music.

I received The Killers, U2 (latest), Duran Duran (latest), The Cure (Three Imaginary Boys 2 disk set). I bought my husband the 24-Hour Party People soundtrack and Joy Division - Closer to the Unknown. He recently came home with the Best of the BeeGees. Other recent purchases? Hmm... Death to the Pixies may be the most recent.

Truth Be Told (self titled) - Here is a great indie band that opened for the Fixx in Santa Barbara in March of 2004. Only $6.98 at http://www.projekt.com/

Collective Soul - Youth Pretty good even with a new lead guitarist. As good as Hints and Disciplined Breakdown.

The Music - Welcome To The North Our very own The Optimist (where has he been anyway?) turned me on to these guys. Again, this was only $7.99 at Best Buy - the right price for any music CD.

Evanescence - Anywhere But Home This puppy came as a two disc set. The other disc is a full length DVD with the concert footage Live In Paris and all of the Evanescence music videos. There may be interviews too, I'm not done scoping it out yet.

Black Eyed Peas - Elephunk Not normally into this kind of music but Black Eyed Peas does their genre justice with good uplifting lyrics. They're rap but they take a stand against gangsta rap.

Also bought a couple old titles that I'll not bore you with.

Well, Killing Joke sings the ever popular "Living in the 80's"...so I'd say the album "Night Time" is a good place to start. A second choice would be "Laugh? I Nearly Bought One." There's some great remixes of Love Like Blood and 80's out there too...fun stuff! I listen to them a lot when I'm buried in my office.

I recently got the first two albums by magazine "real life" and "secondhand daylight." I had the live album "play" on vinyl for ages and i thought i'd have a go at the first two. They were better than i thought and i am happy. John McGeoch was a member of the the group and went on to be in siouxsie and banshees and public image limited. He was an influential underated guitarist whose talent will be missed in this world.

Hey Fluxus,
I'm a killing joke fan too. I like "Extremities, Dirt & Various Repressed Emotions" album quite a lot as well as the laugh comp.
Geordie Walker is another completely underated guitarist that i enjoy listening to.

Underworld: Second Toughest in the Infants
Queen: Greatest Hits
U2: How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

The Chuck Berry Anthology is something everyone should own, it's really amazing. Everything later owes to Chuck--you will not believe how much of this anthology is stuff you know that you didn't realize you knew. And you'll realize lots of other music you know is actually much more derivative than you might have thought. Of course, the main thing is that it's just really great music!

Was browsing in FYE last week when I came across a little cd that featured extended versions by the Fixx. . . when I took it out and played it, it was a complete rip from 1011 and 20th Century masters! I was pissed beyond all comprehension! I'm like "dude, why did BMG try to pull a fast one and release this?! Do the guys know about this?!" Needless to say, I am going to find out about this one. Why would you repackage something like that and rip people off? I think 1011 is fabulous the way it is, especially since it's a double cd, and then you get that?!

pissed at BMG because real Fixx fans know where the songs came from

Adam Woods would second that call on Beaucoup Fish - he recommended it as their best, along with A Hundred Days off as another can't-pass-up disk. I'm enjoying both discs heartily!

I saw Freur 10 times, in and around London. They were SOOOO close to breaking it, but their record company didn't like the direction of their 2nd album. It didn't even get a release in the UK, and I can't find it on cd, anywhere.
I've got some gig photos from those days, which I'll post over the weekend.

I've listened to their new stuff...just not actually purchased a hard copy (trying not to incriminate myself...);)

Underworld as a dance band...I can see it... I don't think I'd ever heard them in a club until recently (strange - but my memory is like sieve). Dubnobasswithmyheadman is a disk that I listen to most often... it's been a soul ripper for me...almost trance-like...pulls at something through my ears and turns me inside out (lifting one evil eyebrow and winking). That's all I can say. I found a scratch on my disk so it's time to buy a new one.

Freur? I'll start the hunt this weekend!

I just recently purchased:

A.C.T. - Imaginary Friends - On Wilkie's recommendation mainly....I really like the tracks No Perspective, Biggest Mistake and the title cut the best. A few more listens will probably yield more.

Garden State - Music from the Motion Picture - This has a couple great cuts from The Shins [New Slang & Caring Is Creepy], a really good one from Nick Drake [One Of These Things First], one of my favorites from Simon & Garfunkel [The Only Living Boy In New York], a really cool tune from Bonnie Somerville [Winding Road] and some other really good soundtrack material [including songs from Coldplay, Zero 7, Colin Hay {from Men At Work}, Cary Brothers, Remy Zero, Thievery Corporation, Iron and Wine & Frou Frou]. This hardly ever leaves my CD player since I got it.

Words & Music - John Mellencamp's Greatest Hits - All this stuff sounds good to me now. I wasn't much of a fan when he was stringing together his hits but call it the midwestern U.S. influence in my life now it all sounds good to me now.

Nirvana - With The Lights Out - Had to get it.....I have everything else I could find from them so the box set was needed.

No Perspective shows the band's sense of humour. Take It Easy is the band's main song. you, know, the one that they HAVE to play, regardless. My favourites at the moment, are Mr Unfaithful and Supposed Tour, which is a live favourite. It, basically, tells the tale of how the band were booked to support Saga in 2001, but their (then) manager, fouled up, and none of the venues were aware that a support band were coming :rolleyes:

I agree totally Octo.....It's great to hear The Kinks sounding so good. I have been on a Kinks buying frenzy lately. I just got "Preservation 2", "BBC Sessions 1964 - 1977" and "The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society". All 3 are excellent CDs but I am really partial to Village Green....mainly because of Picture Book. I am picking up "Preservation Act 1" & "Something Else By The Kinks" tomorrow. It's been years since I have heard either of them so I can't wait.

Love the kinks, my first Kinks album was "Everybody's In Show-biz", that was back when I was a teenage Kiss-fanatic, and ballads werent exactly my cup-o-tea back then, but "Celluloid Heroes" couldnt be denied, I played it to death

I ended up getting "Schoolboys In Disgrace" since the shop I normally shop at sold out of the 2 I wanted to get. Great set...I vaguely remember listening to it when I was younger. You're quite lucky that your wife can accept any Kinks....mine hates them with a passion....well maybe not hates them but she only likes a couple of the bigger hits. I don't know what I should expect though....for her music is Rick Springfield, Bon Jovi & [oddly] Sawyer Brown. Good stuff but not quite on The Kinks level IMO.

Hey,SilentGeoff

I just saw the film:"In Good Company",starring Dennis Quaid,Scarlett Johansen and Topher Grace. It was a great film,and I was excited to hear two Shins tunes on the soundtrack! They were the last two songs on "Chutes Too Narrow": "Gone For Good" and "Those To Come". Very cool. They appear to be getting more and more exposure,and for good reason,as I'm sure you'd wholeheartedly agree with by now.

Have yet to pick up "Oh,Inverted World",though I have heard several tracks from it,and even have one of them "burned" on c.d.:"Pressed in a Book";excellent song!

Here's to The Shins' imminent world domination!-(not likely,but it's a pleasant thought nonetheless):)

After finally hearing and owning both of The Shins full-length CDs I totally agree with your statement. If there is any justice they will at the very least start getting a bit more airplay and exposure now. In fact I am going to look into getting tickets to see them in concert, which I am led to believe by speaking to a few people who have done so is an excellent show, as soon as they get somewhere near here.

They are scheduled to be on Austin City Limits on PBS sometime in the near future with The Flaming Lips. There is a show that has some promise.

My last CD purchase (as Alannah had suggested in two different threads) was Keane - Hopes And Fears.

I bought it because the price was right. $9.99 at Best Buy.
I was hoping to explore new ground with this CD that I bought knowing absolutely nothing about them. However, they are essentially Coldplay except with a cross between Bono, Freddy Mercury, and Thom Yorke on vocals.

It's good music though so I think I'll keep it.

Interesting comparison Steve, many critics over here have compared them to Coldplay also. Personally, I do not think they sound like them at all. Though, I suppose they play similar style music.
I love Hope & Fears. It's beautiful. Never thought I would ever like a band that lacks guitars! But somehow they manage to get away with it.

that night As I was walking around with the cd in my hand... I was thinking about my friend, Maria, as Journey was her favorite band .....and of course .. the Fixx was(is ) mine.... it was about 7:15 pm...

I get home and there is a message from Maria(She lives in TX) and she said... "Hey.. I am out for a walk ..listening to my new 'the Fixx greatest hits' Cd and of course I am thinking of you... it is 7:15 pm.....give me a call when you get home......."

Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Thorns meets the Kinks - I like it. really only one or two songs that I don't care for. The rest is solid.


The Killers - Cool poppy alt rock. Lots of 80s influences.

The Shins - Oh, Inverted World - so many people told me I would like these guys and they were right. Pretty good stuff. Kinda REM meets Brian Wilson.

The Shipping News Soundtrack - Awesome!

Nine Inch Nails ~ "With Teeth" -- IMHO the best total collection Trent Reznor has put together...bar none. I have listened to this CD the whole way through at least 10 times now and have yet to feel the need to skip a single song on it.

Jethro Tull ~ "A" -- Alot of Tull fans told me not to get this set saying it was a "weak at best" offering. I myself like the addition of Eddie Jobson to the mix and while overall it would have been better served as the Ian Anderson solo LP it was supposed to be...I still like it.

Queen ~ "Live Killers" -- I hated this set when it came out on LP years ago...thought the band did too much overdubbing and it just wasn't up to what I would have expected from Queen. After picking it up on the cheap on CD...my opinion still hasn't changed.

The Essential Journey

a 32 song double cd set featuring the greatest hits as well as concert faves- I wanted to hear Feeling That Way on it, but I still think it rocks. For those of us who don't have Trial By Fire, there are about four songs from it included in this set as well as After the Fall (which is one of THE most kickass tunes ever!) from Frontiers. When I went looking for Time 3, they didn't have it in stock OR Trial By Fire. Imagine how pissed I was. FYE, you need to carry this. I had gone there to purchase the Fixx before, but after I had asked for it, they started carrying them. Hopefully this time they'll do the same.

Prefab Sprout - "The Collection" - Excellent, Steely Dan-ish jazz-pop. Imagine the Dream Academy gone loungy.

Thanks, dejapete...
It's so nice to hear someone else say that they appreciate country. Wade Hayes is great, and so many country artists are wonderful in concert, though I've never had the pleasure of hearing Hayes live.

The last cd's I bought (if I skip the Antigone Rising cd ...a fairly new all girl group, heavy on the acoustic guitar, vocal harmonies and some awesome percussion... they're country sounding at many points) were two of Depeche Mode (Violator and Music for the Masses) ... I couldn't believe I still was using my old worn out cassettes! Gosh, I love those guys...

dejapete
06-05-2005, 02:53 PM
Thanks. And I found out that Wade Hayes' Old Enough to Know Better is out of print. Still available, though.

He's like Brad Paisley but you don't need an expensive ticket to see him.

And you gotta love these song lines:

Monday morning I wake up
With a hammer in my hand
The boss-man yelling something at me
That I don't understand
I don't know how I got to work
But I sure know I'm there
I'm old enough to know better
But I'm still too young to care

Never got into Depeche Mode. Probably because my youthful musical impression period pre-dated the techno stuff. But I DO like The Fixx.

Checked out Antigone Rising. Not bad... I think if you like Melissa Etheridge, you would like this band.

BTW. Antigone was the daughter of Oedipus and I guess his mother.

I dunno. That mythology is all Greek to me.

Oh Yes! I forgot I also bought a Trick Pony album. They played in La Crosse 2000 and 2002, and I didn't go. Man, I'm getting sore from kicking myself so much.

I just picked up Iron Maiden's Edward the Great at FYE last night. I am happy to say that it effin' rocks! Run to the Hills kicks it off some kinda awesome, and by the time you get to Wasted Years, you've got the volume cranked all the way up!!!! It also features a live version of 2 Minutes to Midnight from the Rock in Rio concert in 2001. A worthwhile investment for the cursory Maiden fan, and something easy to carry for the hardcore Maiden fan.

:cheers:

oh yeah. . . back in August I picked up Demon Days by Gorillaz. The entire cd is a pure soundscape of enjoyment. There are no two tracks alike; I haven't seen a cd with so many styles on it EVER!!! It's schweet!!!:goodie:

Ok, I'm not big on hip hop but...


Black Eyed Peas - Monkey Business is a GREAT album!!

Picked it up a couple weeks ago and am just now playing it. High energy POP done RIGHT. Clean too (except for the song about butts and ****, and my son says "you should see the video Dad!)) .

I just can't take this CD out of the player. Been spun up 5 times now and I just LOVE it!!

Last one I picked up was "Guero" by Beck. I hear alot of mixed feelings about this CD, from people I know. I happen to like it...it's no "Odelay", but I prefer it over "Mellow Gold", "Midnight Vultures", and "Sea Change."
I do like "Deadweight" off the soundtrack for that Ewan McGregor/Cameron Diaz flick...but that could be partly for the killer art statement video on that one. I so get the Andy Warhol and Al Hansen visual references and absurdity influences. IMO, Beck has some of the best videos, especially when handled by Mark Romanek. Well, anyway...I like his music, and have the CD collection.

It was a labor of love. This was our 20th. We hadn't had one since our 10th (which I didn't attend). I would spend the extra time while waiting for photos to come in to just search the Internet for people. Also got our researcher to use Lexis Nexis.

I haven't bought many new 2005 releases this year,but those that I have managed to procure over the last couple of months are the following:

"Witching Hour"- Ladytron (best album I've heard all year!)
"Tender Buttons"- Broadcast (not their best,but still really good)
"The Woods"- Sleater-Kinney (probably the best "rock album" this year)

And I've purchased a few old favorites on C.D. as well:

"Blind"- The Sundays
"Tales of Mystery and Imagination:Edgar Allan Poe"- Alan Parsons Project
"Cafe Bleu"- The Style Council
"Murmur"- R.E.M.
"The Dream of The Blue Turtles"- Sting

And I've gotten access to some of my roommates newest superb finds:

"Man Mountain"- Blue States (2002)
"The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady"- Charles Mingus (1963)
"604"(2001) and "Light and Magic"(2002)- Ladytron
"Le Tigre"- Le Tigre (1999)

Love Holy Smoke, altho Deep is my favorite. Dust is good too. Love Hysteria is my second fave.

The new Depeche is good. I missed them in concert a couple of weeks ago at the Patriot Center, darnit! I saw them the last time they were here playing with Poe at Merriweather. THAT was a great show! I think I'm liking the album more as I continue to play it.

Anybody here by chance have "Illinois" by Sufjan Stevens? Evidently,it's a hell of an album,because it's topping year-end "critic's polls" like crazy. Apparently,it's THE indie album of the year. Rolling Stone gave it 4 stars,and Pitchfork put it at the top of their year-end poll. I've only heard a few tracks from it. They sounded pretty good,especially "Chicago"(a gorgeous tune!).

It's a concept album covering all that is associated with the state of Illinois. Apparently,Sufjan Stevens is undertaking the immense(if not impossible) task of doing a "concept/theme album" for every American state! Two years ago he did a "Michigan" album. I guess he's presently 30 years old,so if he releases one every 2 years,Stevens will be around 130 years old or so by the time he covers the entire country. If he stays healthy who knows,huh? :D

Anyways,I think I'll pick it up soon and check it all out for myself.

I was happy to buy this one, being I'm a big fan of Styx! Only thing wrong with this one is that Snowblind isn't on it! Otherwise, I was pleasantly surprised to hear Crystal Ball after all these years. . .

New Jack- Disturbed's Believe
Yep, this one was found a few sections over, but hey, it got picked up too! Naturally, I've been blasting Liberate all over the house (much to the chagrin of Moms and the boy!). However this one is an enhanced version of the original- it features the video to Prayer as well!

Red Hot + Dance - A Benefit For AIDS Research And Relief

Not bad....George Michael's stuff on here is really good and the Seal song Crazy remix kicks *** plus any collection that remixes Sly & The Family Stone is alright by me....

Frehley's Comet ~ Ace Frehley

Not as good as I remember it from my youth....still a few good tunes on here....

Themes ~ Vangelis

Previously unreleased movie music and other stuff too....worth it just for his music from Bladerunner but this is a really good collection....

Copperhead Road ~ Steve Earle

My favorite set from this artist....the title cut alone would have been worth the price but there are so many other great tracks here. Snake Oil, Back To the Wall and The Devil's Right Hand are among my favorites....but truth be told I could listen to this set 24/7....

Recently got boxkar. A Fox Cities band that played before The Fixx in Milwaukee last year. The more I listen, the more I like them.

I just picked up Rob Dickinson's new album Fresh Wine For The Horses.

It is nothing short of AWESOME!

Rob Dickinson was the frontman for Catherine Wheel. Fixxation and SilentGeoff would absolutely love this album as you both already know how well Catherine Wheel comes across.

Rob's new album is a tad more mellow than any Catherine Wheel album but to me that shows strength and growth. Rather than hiding behind a wall of sound he pulls out the acoustic, voice up front, some piano, and all Catherine Wheel members DO contribute to the album in some way.

Fresh Wine For The Horses - Great album - Get it now!!

Superb artwork concept too

Zack has heavy influences from the Kinks, The Beatles, Tal Bachman, and he sounds VERY much like Duncan Sheik except his songs are much more interesting and rocking.

The right price too. It was only like $8 on his website and I was able to pay with PayPal.

Excellent album.

Latest Cd we bought was Cy's Mayfly...do I LOVE it??? Yes, that is a definite YES!! It's so very different from the Fixx's style(s), yet because the Fixx isn't locked into any one style, it's so very like. Mayfly isn't all the same sounding, either...each song is unique. Didn't know what to expect, but I'm very happy to have found it...in a used record shop, USED...$5.00!! Talk about not being able to believe it! Couldn't believe anyone would sell it to a used shop, the weirdo (to be kind), but our fortune!!

The actual last music we bought, though, was from a guy selling a HUGE collection of vinyl!! Got quite a selection - Joan Baez, Iron Butterfly ('Ball' not 'Innagadda da vida' - already have that one, an oldie but an awesome favorite goodie!!), Monkees, Wings, Beach Boys, Marshall Crenshaw, Joe Cocker, Bread, Disney's Happiest Songs (yeah I know, but my sis had it when we were kids), Paul Revere and the Raiders, Beatles, The Police, and John Denver). Yes, we have VERY eclectic tastes in music...listen to a little of most everything.

1. Jesus Jones "Doubt" (1991).
These guys can flat-out rock. Included on this disc is their hit song Right Here, Right Now.

2. The Shoes "Stolen Wishes" (1989).
Now how could I resist this one?
This group sounds kinda like Air Supply, but with a little more *punch*. But they do sound good. Do a great job of playing their instruments.

3. Another copy of "Walkabout"

Every now and then I buy a CD on a whim. Perhaps a band that I know very little about but heard good things or maybe something I read a good review of in the paper or music magazines (NOT Rolling Stone mind you).

Anyway, I picked up Stadium Arcadium by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and I have to say that this two disc set with 28 songs is KILLER! Despite having SO MANY tracks it never loses it's punch and doesn't get boring. This is my first RHCPs album (aside from a burn of a friends Californication CD) and I'm impressed well enough to delve deeper into their catalog.

How come nobody ever told me these guys rocked?

Or, maybe they did and I just wasn't listening.

It os always a mixture of old and new stuff. But it is always to much I guess...

Here are a few:

Spin doctors - Pocket full of Kryptonite

We are scientists - Crap Attack

Peter Green Splinter Group - Reaching the Cold 100

Duncan Sheik - Brighter / Later

Lemonheads - Lemonheads.

Some of them are nice price or second hand. If I don't like them I try to sell them on ebay.

America - Here and Now

This two disc set has 12 new studio tracks on the first disc and a live session recorded for XM Radio broadcast on the second disc.

Great new music from these soft rock staples. Much better than their bland last album Human Nature.

That's one of my alltime favorite Sarah Brightman songs from her Eden CD, and love to hear any version of the song. Here's a clip of it from youtube. I love the blend of rhythm and symphony, lots of musicians have used this technique and it can be hard to pull off.

Last ones I bought have been "Phantoms" by you-know-who, "Ear Candy" by Kings X and "Degradation Trip Vols. 1&2" by Jerry Cantrell.

Recent eMusic downloads have been great albums by Tito Puente and the Miles Davis Quintet. :)

The Shins - Wincing The Night Away

I know this album was discussed in the "what are you listening to?" thread but I'm putting my commentary here, now that I've listened to it all the way through.

Great 3rd album from these lads. I agree with Geoff that it is better than their prior two albums.

The album starts with a gentle hypnotic number that progresses to a quick beat.

Second track Australia sends a nod to Dexie's Midnight Runners. If the Beatles had ever used a banjo it may have gone like this.

Third song Pam Berry sends a nod to Radiohead.

Phantom Limb might as well have been performed by The Beach Boys with it's 60s shoreline atmosphere and soaring Wilson brothers harmonies.

Sea Legs has a percussive aura right out of Sterolab's Metronomic Underground.

Turn On Me reminds of the 60s british invasion style rock. The Kinks come to mind.

Black Wave is very much like a Dewey Bunell penned America tune.

Split Needles is very Fixx like, particularly of the Still Around sorts complete with Rupertish keys.

Girl Sailor = more Kinks.

Lot's of roots come apparent in The Shins new album Wincing The Night Away. The effort is solid and a joy to listen to. I consider these guys the "America of the Y2Ks" in that they could easily be the band that crops up endlessly from the soft rock genre for years to come.

In light of the exciting news of The Police reuniting, I was doubly pleased to stumble upon an album I've been searching for high and low for lo these past 10 years or so since I last had a turn-table and playable vinyl albums, of which I had it on this specific format. The album in question, which I finally found on c.d. today (secondhand for only $7.95) is Andy Summers' 1988 :"Mysterious Barricades". Yyyyyeeeaaahhhh!!!! :goodie:

This is one of those specifically placed albums from a very particularly time in my life that became a major part of my personal life "soundtrack" (I associate it with my girlfriend at the time, regardless of the album's ironic implications in the title- or maybe not,because we DID eventually break-up; I think from her standpoint, quite mysteriously), and it's been bloody years since I last heard it.

This wonderful find has really made my day indeed. :)

Thanks, Your Majesty! I didn't know anyone had covered this tune. It's definitely my favorite Hooverphonic track. Nice to hear a different version. :)

You are very welcome Bash, I am a big fan of hers, and equally with The Fixx, which can be a strange mixx, but she fills that need for some pretty female music. Amazing thing about her, is that it is often like reading about The Fixx, English artists who are more known for what they sang 25 years ago, while their current work is more interesting. I would love to hear her duet with Cy, and they'd look good together too. When pigs fly, I guess.

Anything new, I download these days, unless it's from an artist I truly support.
