The Wake of Magellan by Savatage. It's my favorite of theirs.
Remedy Lane by Pain of Salvation.
The first time I listened to it I was stunned and simply sat silently for a few moments to let it soak in.
It's also the inspiration for my title.
Hmmm, I discovered Road Salt 1 recently at a particularly difficult time - the breakup of my marriage - and I don't think any album has ever reasonated so much with what I felt.
They are something special, that's for sure. I can't wait for Part 2 later this month.
I don't have Road Salt 1, but I want to get it. I currently have Remedy Lane, Be and Scarsick. I don't remember the title of the track, but on Be there was a track with "God's answering machine" that they set up for people to call and leave a message for god. I'm not religious at all, however I found that track to be very touching.
Currently listening to ABIII by Alter Bridge.
In The Court Of The Crimson King
Solar Fields - "Discovering"
Came across Solar Fields when he did the excellent soundtrack for Mirror's Edge. Not really my kind of music but I really like his stuff.
Steven Wilson's Grace for Drowning
Mastodon's The Hunter
All are excellent!
Nice work sir! I've got Heritage but haven't given it enough listens to have a fully formed opinion yet.
Still need to get my hands on The Hunter.
Yeah, looks like Heritage is causing some derision from fans too (too mellow/slow, no growls). I do need to listen to it more though (but I've had the second track "The Devil's Orchard" stuck in my head all day!)
I'm loving the Mastodon album - shorter and more straight to the point songs than CtS, but a great album.
@west & cb - a big hell ya on the new Opeth and Mastodon.
Superb albums. Love the direction taken on Opeth. Ballsy move. Kind of a fusion between the direction taken with Damnation added with a Prog Rock sensibility. The kind of album only Opeth could pull off and still, somehow, make it feel metal.
Mastodon - The Hunter has been a blast. Mastodon was on Letterman tonight. They did Curl of the Burl.
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts - Change the World. I found this song on a fluke, and I absolutely love it.
She's amazing live too, judging by that video. And she's still got her looks, too.
I'll be seeing Opeth live this coming Saturday. REALLY excited!
Lucky SOB. With my work schedule going to concerts during the week is very difficult and when they stop here it is during a week day. Really sucks.
I am going to see Mastodon though. Hells yes.
Yeah, the weeknight concert gets harder to go to the older I get.
Mastodon plays here in November, so I'll be trying to see them too.
The new Opeth Heritage is pretty good...
np, lots of Tangerine Dream albums.
My write up from the Opeth show this past Saturday in Seattle:
Interesting review CB, looks like there's going to be a bit of discontent with the fans going forward. I see what you mean though, when you go to an Opeth show you at least want to hear some of the heavy stuff, as it's such a prominent part of their sound.
I wonder how much the other band members fully support the style change (they say they do on the DVD, but it's Mikael driving it - I wonder how it will pan out?)
Hard to say. I feel like they probably have at least another album in them before they call it quits.
I will say that even though they have altered their sound, they still sound really good.
Damnation is a stunningly good album. I keep playing it and thinking, 'they should do more of this'.
Agree, it is damn good isn't it? My favourite Opeth album after Watershed.
