Finally! Some music to review! While there is not a whole lot of releases starting off the year, we do finally have a few albums, and some new singles to fill in the gaps. Also, in this episode, Nick does an impression of a boy trying to sing high notes while going through puberty, and we discover Kyle has a new-found fascination for loincloths. Fun times all around!
Album reviews: Nightwish – Imaginaerum; Enter Shikari – A Flash Flood of Colour; Loincloth – Iron Balls of Steel
Single reviews: Caliban – “Dein R3Ich”; Still Remains – “Reading Lips”; Veil of Maya – “Vicious Circles”
Great episode this week. I love that after all the time you spend talking about music you keep surprising each other.
Also, what micro-genre is your podcast? Post-podcore?
Apparently today is Nightwish day. In addition to your unexpected (but not unwelcome) review of Imaginaerum, I watched Sam Dunn’s cool documentary series Metal Evolution where in this week’s episode he interviewed Tarja Turunen and Tuomas Holopainen. Today could have turned into loincloth day, but fortunately I came across no references to loincloths outside of your podcast.
