They Did it Right

Anybody who has listened tot his show more than once knows Nick and Brian tend to have pretty similar tastes.  However, it has been a while since every review in an episode received the same rating number.  Did the albums this week hit a sweet spot?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments! Oh, we also start the show with by continuing a conversation from last week, so feel free to chime in on that too.

You Did it Wrong

So why only two albums reviews? Well, as many of you may expect, we have a lot to say about the new Machine Head album, so we wanted to give enough time to that without running the show too long.  Make sure you stick around for the whole show though..there’s good music there. Oh, and we also discuss the production value of August Burns Red‘s remix/remaster of Messengers.

The Devil Went Down…

Instead of writing something witty (or not) here, I’m going to start a discussion we didn’t have on the show – Slayer is finally calling it a day.  If you’ve been listening to the show for a while, you know how Nick and I feel about it (they should have done it years ago).  How do you feel?  Let’s chat in the comments!

New Music Starts Early This Year

As we mentioned last week, we actually have some new 2018 music to check out!  I know, right? Who would thought we’d be able to start so early? It’s a pretty strong start, if we do say so ourselves.  Continuing Bands Across America, we hit the Dirty Jerz – Brian’s home state!
