  • Nobody else liked the new van halen album? It had a few bad songs but a lot of their albums did too. But songs like blood and fire, you and your blues, stay frosty, the trouble with never and she's the woman I would put on a list of some of their best stuff.

    I hope they are able make more albums.

    I like to think of myself as having an ear for all sorts of music, but I could not listen to more than the first 35 seconds of this song, due to the unbearable vocals.

    Little too much funk in there for my tastes, but you can tell they're pretty damn technically proficient.

    My early favorite for album of 2013 is:

    Cult of Luna - Vertikal



    And I'm really looking forward to the album from Palms that's reportedly going to be released in June. Palms = 3 members from Isis with Chino Moreno handling vocal duties.

    Yeah the album blew me away as I was expecting more first wave black metal with a quirk, but this is total left field strangeness ala Mr Bungle.

    Palms sounds like fun, the new Tomahawk is rocking my 2013 so far.

    This post makes me feel A) Totally old. B) Out of touch. C) Both.

    I'm going with C.

  • Cookie monster rock, you shouldn't feel out of anything as it is an acquired taste that is hard to acquire.

    The whole album blew me away. I didn't expect anything near as good as they put down. Reminds me a great deal of Sabotage, which I feel is their most underrated album. Not a bad track on the disc and my fav is Damaged Soul. Oh, went #1 worldwide as well.
