Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 8/20/08

Moving right along (to the tune of The Muppets' song, footloose and fancy free...) into another mid-week, and filled with the customary dread and anxiety known as human survival. Staying optimistic, however, with a possible side gig with a local paper coming up and a potential big interview on Friday, depending on time lock down.

Otherwise, massive consumption of music this past week, perhaps the biggest list o' discs I've posted here, and yeah, there's some meticulation beneath the rabid devouring of tunes, but that all unfolds in their proper places. A good bit of alternative rock mixed in with the metal and assorted goodies and oddballs. Amazing I was able to consume so much music considering I've been carpooling with a co-worker and of course there's the spud, but I've had a couple of breaks from him and needless to say, it was music cram session!

Having had my interview with Kurdt Vanderhoof of Metal Church last week, the most spun album consequently is the debut self-titled Church album, which is amazing anything got a second spin in the gorgefest of music I went after. An overdue moment of silence for Isaac Hayes, that baaaaaaad mutha... Hope you, JB and Curtis Mayfield are putting down some serious funk in the afterlife...

So anyway, have a go with this list and you know what to do from there...

Nice list this week, Roy. I've said it before, I'll say it again--in my opinion, QOTSA's Rated R remains their best work, which is saying a lot.

My six upon my return this week:

Rush, Moving Pictures
Rush, Snakes & Arrows
Cinderella, Long Cold Winter
Peter Gabriel, the first s/t ("car")
Guns 'n Roses, Appetite for Destruction
Dream Theater, Octavarium

Mark, can't wait to listen to the new Iced Earth. I have both of the Chingalera albums and need to get busy. Still need to get Laaz and Big Elf.

BobV, glad to see you; you were missed!

cjk, your diversity is becoming cooler by the week

David, the fact anyone at all reads this page gives me the edification to keep it running; a compliment like that puts me at a loss; QOTSA is just on fire, no doubt about it; I can remember back in the trashing Long Cold Winter but now I prefer that and Heartbreak Station to Night Songs...weird how that is

Ian, always happy to see Tori peek in your always extreme list; I notice a lot of headbangers are into her; in fact, a headbanger in a record store turned me on to Into the Pink ages ago; been a love affair ever since
