Def Leppard - Pyromania. Die hard the hunter, man.
But it's too late for love when you have stagefright!
The deep cuts on this album are pretty great, right?
Dream Tröll - Quest for Steel. I love this band. So silly, but so good at what they do, and fairly original to boot. No small feat for a new power metal band in the late teens!
I still have to get this. Hell, I still have to actually listen to Second to None past the advance songs.
I'm guessing these two tracks are just leftovers from Second to None, but I'll be damned if this band has released anything bad at all. I miss when every order came with a sketch, though!
BACKLOG.
The New Pornographers - In the Morse Code of Brake Lights. Good, but very samey. Carl Newman just hasn't been himself since after Together. Maybe it's marriage and fatherhood?
Listening to this one for the first time now. Not super-enthusiastic about it so far, but I do like "Colossus of Rhodes" more out of the box than anything on Whiteout Conditions. All those big swooping strings at least make the song sound like it's looking higher than its own navel.
Same here, more or less, although I'd say this is a bit less engaging overall than Whiteout Conditions, which I personally enjoyed more than Brill Bruisers. This new one is good, because pretty much everything Newman does is at LEAST good, but it never really gets going. Maybe Dan Bejar is necessary after all? Strangers things have happened.
