Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 9/15/10

Howdy and hiya, readers!

As always, hoping everyone's having a rockin' kind of week. The rollercoaster ride continues on this end with preparation of Retaliate issue 1. I couldn't ask for a better response from the community about this endeavor, so I will strive to make it worthy of the hype.

Otherwise, kinda living in a blur moving from task-to-task, but I have to drop kudos on this new Enslaved album. I'll be reviewing it in Retaliate and well, suffice it to say, I have a damned strong front-runner for Metal Album of the Year with Axioma Ethica Odini and a nomination for one of the greatest metal albums of this generation. Yeah, seriously, it's that good.

And with that, friends, stay well and stay tuned. I have goodies for you here at The Metal Minute, so warm up that coffee or pop a top and relax with your favorite tunes of the day. Cheers...

Dirty Skirty, that's funny stuff, Mark!

Chuck, I think Oakenfold's coming to town shortly.

Jeff, nice round 'o punk, especially the Ramones ride

cjk, what do you think of the new Accept and BXI?

tier, thanks for dropping by...I haven't pulled my F&J in awhile, hmmmm, maybe I should

i love the new accept - killer riffs but the songs could have been shorter in some cases for greater impact.

i've only spun BXI a couple of times - i'm still warming up to it.

dying to hear the new enslaved!

Ray, I had no idea Oakenfold was touring, thanks for the heads-up. He's about the only big DJ I never heard live, and I'd still like to catch one of his sets.

With that said, this is directed at anyone from Live Nation or AEG or other similar companies who might be reading:

$52 for a cheap ticket?!? I've enjoyed watching your tours fail all summer long, I've enjoyed watching you "garage sale" your overpriced tickets, and I will enjoy watching you sink just as much as I'm enjoying watching Blockbuster sink.

Gouging your core customers is not a viable long-term business model. It didn't work for American car companies, it didn't work for Blockbuster, and it's not going to work much longer for the mainstream concert industry.
