Picked up a copy of Tone Williams Lifetime - The Collection cheap from discogs. I only knew the song "Fred" beforehand, and I didn't realize it has Holdsworth on it. This is some really awesome, funky, heavy rock fusion.

About time...  Interesting, it's somewhere inbetween it and Pain Is Beauty.  It's more overtly trip-hop influenced than anything she's done before at the start, but would fit better on PIB initially, but it gets heavier and grimier as it goes along, which definitely heads towards Abyss territory.  She's on a new label now and doing a tour next year, I hope this means she's close to finishing another album.  For someone normally so productive she's been fairly quiet the past few years.

Oh yeah, Williams and Holdsworth is a great combination.  I should put that back in my queue.

checked out a tune from Shpongle last night and loved it.

Same with "In the Air" by Morgan Page.

Also "Silver City" by Falling Up is less of a Christmas album, but more of a bunch of Christmas songs reinterpretted in their style.

Obviously we’re all here because we adore music and are obsessed with it. Many of you are really good at putting into words why you love certain artists/songs, and articulating how they make you feel. I am not :rollin

Anyway, I was spinning a few of my favourite songs of the year so far earlier (and some that I’ve just been digging) and it struck me how they all make me feel different and bring joy in different ways. Kind of a pointless post but here are the songs and why they are important to me (or just why I like them)…

Mandroid Echostar - Rosalia

Rosalia is just great and hits a real sweet spot of proggy pop. I’ve been real lucky this year as there’s been lots of stuff in a similar vein and it scratches an itch that started when I first fell in love with Coheed and Cambria.

Closure in Moscow - Better Way

Which leads onto Better Way. I adore this song and am super pumped about the new album. This also scored really well in Lonestar’s recent roulette and I’m glad others are appreciating the band as much as they deserve.

Tenacious D - Video Games

I haven’t been obsessed with a Tenacious D song for many years! This shows a side of music I love for just being a short, sharp shock. It’s kinda ridiculous, really short and great to sing along to. I could spin it every day.

Norma Tanega - You’re Dead

This song is the theme tune to the show What We Do In the Shadows. It’s a ridiculous comedy about vampires that my wife loves. It is really good and the theme tune is so infectious. I had to add it to my favourite songs.

Blink-182 - One More Time

Blink just released another single off their upcoming album and it got me revisiting this song again. I have so much nostalgia and great memories with friends linked to Blink. As the song is about getting over any past issues with friends and coming together again, it got me thinking about some of my friends this evening. There’s a line about how it shouldn’t take nearly dying to bring people back together, and it makes me think about friends of mine who have addiction issues or are suffering with their mental health. I need to reach out to some of them because people can be struggling and before you know it, it’s too late and you never got to tell them what they mean to you.

Bird Problems - Plume/Gloom

Just some great new prog metal that is a nice reminder (as if I could ever forget) that there is so much good music out there to discover.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - The Silver Cord

Lastly, my boys. New single by the band and this one is hitting hard. It’s particularly surprising as this is not the sort of music I generally like, at all. Lyrically there seems to be a spiritual theme to this one, and I need to give it a listen with the lyrics in front of me. I can’t wait for the new album, especially as they are also releasing an extended version of it, where each song is extended to roughly a 20 minute run time.

Yea, basically this is just saying that just this small cross section of songs can invoke such feelings, and the power of music can still stun me at times.

Not true, brother. Not true.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

I mean, I've certainly seen plenty of pointless posts (I may, in fact, have posted a few myself), but this is not one of them.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Nice post Luke.  Don't know most of those.  Really gotta check this Lizard band out one day.

Love you guys  :heart

@Kade, I love this band and urge everyone to check them out for sure. Huge metal head as you are, I’d say avoid listening to their metal albums as I think you’ll be generally underwhelmed. It’s their weirder sides that I prefer, and the fact they get me into genres I’m not super into. If you’re serious about trying them, listen to the album Omnium Gatherum, as it exhibits their many different styles, all in one album. Either that or host a roulette and you’ll be getting them!

I’d love for you to listen to new single The Silver Cord and post a review here though, I think you’ll HATE it :lol. If you do, check out the video as well.

I'll definitely look into those Luke.  Maybe I can listen and post some thoughts in their thread.  See if I can do that tomorrow.

New Madder Mortem song, "Towers" (new album coming out in Jan 2024):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzf7cvrk3jU

Cool tune, as usual. Really like the chorus (not crazy about the middle break with the screams, but not too much of an issue)

Was listening to Afterlife (in honor of Charlie), and QR’s Revolution Calling came on next on shuffle, and you know, the sound quality of those two recordings is pretty similar. Boxy drums, flabby bass, muffled overall sound.

Just saw this. This is crushing. I am a huge Joke fan. I am so glad the original lineup got together years ago and were able to tour and put out a few albums. I was lucky enough to see them open for Tool. Man, this really sucks. Most likely the end of the band. I don't see them continuing with him gone.

Pardon the interruption, but I just had to run in and celebrate the majesty of Lube in the Face as highest moment in roulette history

Picked up a copy of Tone Williams Lifetime - The Collection cheap from discogs. I only knew the song "Fred" beforehand, and I didn't realize it has Holdsworth on it. This is some really awesome, funky, heavy rock fusion.

That's a great record. My Dad bought it for me for Christmas years ago, and it's pretty great. I think I prefer the first album to the second one, but all in all, some excellent playing throughout.

They were recorded at the same studio within a year or so of each other. I think the studio was called Kajem/Victory Studios.

Dunno where to post this, but if anybody is a fan of New Wave / 80s Pop music, then I can highly recommend Charly García's records from that decade. Clics Modernos is a classic, and both Piano Bar and Parte de la Religión are excellent. I was quite reluctant to that music style, but he's slowly changing my mind. From making great prog to great pop just shows what a genius he is.
