Not a lot for me this week.

Remember Shakti - Saturday Night in Bombay. Lately I've been trying to give the Remember Shakti stuff equal time to the original Shakti stuff. It's great, but a lot of the tunes kind of ramble and take way too long to wrap up.

Wild Dogs - s/t, Man's Best Friend. Reign of Terror is vastly superior to these first couple albums, but I like these, too, especially Man's Best Friend, which is like a US metal Raven or something.

Magnitude 9 - Chaos to Control. Catchy prog metal. The guitarist overuses the same few noodly tricks basically nonstop, though.

Lost Horizon - Awakening the World, A Flame to the Ground Beneath
Lavett - Find Your Purpose
Dimhav - The Boreal Flame

It's a Daniel Heimann love-fest over here! It's only a matter of time before I'm pulling out Crystal Eyes!

Meshuggah - Destroy Erase Improve

Never gets old!

Headhunter - Parody of Life, A Bizarre Gardening Accident

Should be better, but still pretty good.

Kreator - Terrible Certainty

My fave Kreator, easily.

Extol - Synergy

I like the s/t better, but this is also killer.

Look What I Did - Minuteman for the Minute, Sympathy Porn

The new EP is very good, and compares favorably to pretty much everything else this band has done.

Rush - Grace Under Pressure. The Rush album I listen to most. Is it their best? Maybe? But it's at least the one that makes me happiest when I'm spinning it.
