I'm trying to not overplay it John to make it seem fresh live for tonight's show.

Pineapple Thief -- Live at the 013.

Nice to see another Pineapple Thief fan. I discovered them years ago. It has been a while since I listened to them, though. When I first heard them, I had just bought Variations on a Dream. They reminded me of Radiohead (but better) and Porcupine Tree.

That's how I explain them as well John.  I love their dreaminess of their melodies.

Can't say I'm a huge fan but I quite enjoy All the Wars all the way through, and I love the first song on that album, Burning Pieces.


When Day and Dream Unite. A very strong song by Dream Theater and I'd have to say, Charlie Dominici sung excellently..... Remember when I said Dominici sung excellently? I lied.

Finally coming around to checking out all of the remaining roulette albums I wanted to check out. It's close to 50 on top of the ones I already bought and/or tried.

So yeah, I'm good for the next 1-2 months probably.

Scenes from a Mother Fucking Memory.

And listened to The Astonishing earlier...
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Lol, I've only checked out 19 roulette albums and my roulette ended like 6 months before yours did. I'm so slow. :lol

In fairness, if you counted other albums from artists that I learned about via roulette, that number goes up to 36. But still. So slow. :lol

Yes it is! Also on the list based on your submissions: Bent Knee - Shiny Eyed Babies/Igorrr - Hallelujah on top of the ones I already checked (DMM, Porcupine Tree and Destrage IIRC). Don't actually know why I wanted to check that Igorrr album so bad, I was probably interested in the sheer craziness even though my impression wasn't fantastically positive.

Yeah Hallelujah is really fucked up, and may take a long time to appreciate it if you aren't into weird/experimental stuff to begin with, but it's worth it.

Btw, what did you think of the Kyuss record? :P

Haven't heard it yet, it's on the list of 40-50 other albums to check out, I don't really have time for it the coming 2 days but I could get to it by the weekend if it makes you a happy mega-man.

Seeing as you described it as 'stoner metal', today would be the perfect day :hat it's sunny too, what a surprise.

So I would've had the perfect place and time for this album tonight, but I don't think my friends appreciate stoner metal as much :lol

by my count i've checked out 17 albums directly from my roulette, with 8 more albums from some of the artists i got roulette albums from. but then a fair number of those were albums i was already interested in anyways, so  :lol
