In Search of Self

As we get older and experience more heavy music and the many different styles, we hone in on what we like (and loathe).  We sometimes find ourselves enjoying styles we didn’t previously while outgrowing others.  For better or worse, bands do something similar with their own sound, that rarely sits well…at least while they are figuring that out.

You’re Doing It Wrong

What’s interesting this week is that album that both of us agree is kind of middle-of-the-road is the one that actually gets it the most right.  The first reviewed album gets it’s mostly right, but left one of us wanting more.  One gets it’s so wrong, we actually spend about 20 minutes talking about it (sorry…kinda…).  And the other is just blah.  Funny how that works out….

This week, your hosts had a little fun taking a trip down memory lane.  Or forgotten memory lane, as it were in some cases.  We don’t cover reissues often on this show, but since this week saw seven or eight of them from Metal Mind and not much of anything else going on, we decided to take a look at some of ’em.  Do you remember any of these?  Do you have any of these?  Or, is this your first time hearing them?  Let us know!
