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.

It’s Coming Back Around Again

We have a little back of a throwback going on this week.  After staring in the mid-2000’s and dropping three albums, two of these bands have been absent for 6-7 years.  Another artist here got their start around the same time, but they never left, riding the waves of the changing scene and industry. Then we have The Ongoing Concept.

The Future Has Looked Better…

Looking at this episode as I am posting it, I found it interesting how what is old is new again and still fresh sounding while what is actually new sounds kinda old, tired and not fresh.  I mean, that is obviously just in the opinion of this here podcast, but that is what matters most to us in the end anyway. That said – if you think we are really wrong about that, please tell us in the comments.

Also, before I get called out on it – yes, I forgot to do the live review of the Decibel Magazine Tour stop in NY.  By the time I remembered, we didn’t have a chance add it.  However, since it was the last stop of the tour anyway, it’s not really urgent.  So, look for it next week in 187.
