The Buckingham McVie record reminds me of, but doesn't kill me like Fleetwood Mac's "Mirage."
I was loving the BNQT record but it fizzled out to nothing by track 6. I think all members need a B-12 shot.
Last night, NRBQ played their hearts out once again. They never cease to amaze and astound. Covers of both the Beach Boys "Don't Worry Baby" and B.J. Thomas' "Everybody's Out Of Town" brought tears to my eyes.
King Crimson's cover of Bowie-Eno-Fripp's "Heroes" is a complete waste of 4 minutes. What was the point?
The new Cheap Trick record "We're All Right" is killing me. First half rocks as hard as, and even harder than anything they've done in the past. Second half is full of their brand of pop confection. Solid, from top to bottom.
Reading "Cowboy Song: the Authorised Biography of Phil Lynott" by Graeme Thomson and enjoying it, which sent me to Thin Lizzy's debut, which I hadn't heard in years, or honestly even remembered. What a fantastic record. Truly unique, and unlike anything the band is now known for. (See video above)
Is it me, or has every Matthew Sweet record since the excellent "Blue Sky On Mars" from 1997 sounded exactly the same?
People should really stop dissing Kiss. At the very least, leave the first six records alone, and say what you want about anything from 1979 on.
