Re: What music are you listening to?

QotSA one to me sounds like another case of
album 1 - excellent
album 2 - exclellent
album 3 - we're getting a bit more popular, set lets make an excellent slightly more mainstream rock album, don't get me wrong, I love Songs for the Deaf, but the music was used on the football, F1 etc (Saw them touring that cd, they were excellent live)
album 4 onwards - we're making serious cash now, this formula works, if we can get even more radio friendly, and carry on pushing the "We're mates with Dave Grohl" thing we'll be millionaires soon
this album Mark Ronson? Normally guys like this aspire to work with the likes of Rick Rubin, Steve Albini et al.

On a side note I saw that Josh Homme is going to be reading a story for cbeebies

I was listening to Dead Cross today, excellent hardcore/metal from a bunch of all fogeys (Michael Crain, Justin Pearson, Dave Lombardo, Mike Patton) who should know better

Mark Ronson worked on the production of the new QotSA album. He had input:on what level I don't know. But I think I might be parting with some £££ soon
The rest of the album is hmm not quite my style. But I'm off to listen to your previous post.
So Homme reads out a bedtime story

Well it was just a new song

The Blackout

Then the actual single (a different song) appears a few days later

https://youtu.be/PbGSiJ9iat8

Much better but still a bit too poppy for my liking.

I hate the production, it's saturated with beat detective and autotune. Larry is not hitting his drums like a real drummer so what's going on there? They've been working with Ryan Tedder from that dreadful band One Republic though so none of the fact that this material soulless and sterile comes as any surprise.

I quite liked the Joshua Tree album; but it's plain sad when bands just don't know when to give up. I mean that they can't bring anything new. I'm not sure how big their fan base is now. Their relevant 'fighting spirit' has gone. Lazy.

That's more mental than the time I saw Faith No More, and Mike Patton started to sing Never Gonna Give You up mid one of their classics (they've often put snippets from pop songs mid song)
That's brilliant!

Simple Minds were a big 80's band but they have been much better than U2 on their recent albums, at least critically if not commercially.

Do you like Moloko and maybe Roisin Murphy? Or maybe the more big band sound or Frank Sinatra type?
I like this linky a lot:

Moloko https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYyQ08RgD2E

We went to the Croke Park gig a few weeks ago and there were 83,000 people there. At a guess I'd say more popular than ever

Currently playing from this weeks playlist:

My Autumn Empire - Bluecoat

They played one new song from the album at the very end of the encore. Other than that it was some quick fire classics then the Joshua Tree from beginning to end.

We had VIP tickets (nudge nudge, wink wink) and got this natty commemorative pack including (wait for it) a U2 harmonica!

A harmonica? Well I guess that the harmonica might have taken The Edge off it.
I know now that it was a tour celebrating their JT album.
No disrespect to the band intended.
I'm full of curiosity - were you encouraged to play along?

Nerina Palot - If I know you.
So sweet.

We tried but they were in the wrong key

Currently listening to a classic from my buddies from SF who are always persuading me to buy new gear:
