i just got the new Pretty Willie CD...very good. for those who dont know hes the singer/rapper. he had a pretty big single called Roll Wit Me a few years back. and if anyone saw Johnsons Family Vacation they play one of his singles when Ced the Entertainer is in the hot tub with the fat ladies. Hes a St Louis rapper and hes had 2 very successful singles out in that area. i recomend it for a change of pace style hip hop. im also looking to get the new Nas, TI, Eminem, and Fabolous. if anyone can tell me how they r id appreciate it.

Holy hell. For yet another time in my life, I find myself cursing the radio stations in the town I grew up in for not introducing me to a band earlier in life.

"Blown to Smithereens: The Best of the Smithereens" by, shocker, The Smithereens

HOLY HELL! This album is incredible. I'd always heard "A Girl Like You" and really admired the writing in it (I'm a sucker for the female vocals repeating the lead singer in the background) and just recently decided I needed to get that album and see what the rest of their stuff was like. I was NOT expecting this. From the Beatle-esque (Beauty & Sadness), the Brian Wilson inspired ("Strangers When We Meet"), Getz/Gilberto ("In A Lonely Place") to just plain rocking out ("A Girl Like You"). Wow. You can DEFINATELY see how "Blood & Roses" inspired Kurt Cobain.

You can't go wrong with any Smithereens IMO...but seek out Green Thoughts if you want to hear their most consistant, solid effort...IMO, that's a five star classic CD which ranks a little higher than the others.
I seen them open for Squeeze at the time of it's release and while both bands were good, The Smithereens were hands down better.
The opening act for the shows was Gene Loves Gezebel...anyone remember that godawful band? If not, then you're more fortunate than I am.

SCORE at the little used CD store I go to. ..

In the CD changer now.

Skid Row - Slave to the Grind. A damn fine album that got lost in the Appetite for Destruction hoopla. Monkey Business friggin rocks and it has stellar cowbell throughout. Bruce Dickinson would surely approve.

Van Halen - Fair Warning (Remaster) I already own this on vinyl, cassette, and cd. The remastering is subtle, but provides some much needed botom end to the sonic landscape on those early VH albums. Michael Anthony's bass was barely audible and the mixes were very heavy in mids and treble. Probably my favorite VH album if I had to pick just one. Unchained, Hear About it Later, Mean Street, classics.

AC/DC - For Those About to Rock (We Salute You). While I'm partial to Bon Scott AC/DC, this is a pretty solid effort by the later lineup. It was hard for them to top Back in Black, but this is a solid album in it's own right. I especially dig the title track with the cannons and whatnot.

ZZ Top - Tres Hombres.. None of that Eliminator era synth pop crap, just pure Texas Blues/Rock by three guys who know their Barbecue sauce.

Cinderella - Live at the Key Club. A band that I thought was unfairly lumped in with the Sunset Strip metal scene. These guys have more in common with Aerosmith than Poison. Some people cant stand Tom Keiffer's falsetto, but I dig it.

Megadeth - So Far So Good So What? The Brains behind Metallica along with Cliff. I always felt Megadeth was the superior band but seemed to get shortchanged by critics. I always liked Mustaines delivery, lyrics, and riffs better.

I wholeheartedly agree.

I also scored Suicidal Tendencies - How Will I Laugh Tomorrow (When I can't Even Smile Today) for 4 bucks. Although the first ST album was/is a hardcore/punk classic, this incarnation of the band was musically superior in every respect. They transitioned into a pretty solid thrash band with this release. Rocky George, Mike Clark, and Robert Trujillo just kick major ass on this one.


I forgot just how tight this album is. It makes todays Nu-Metal BS look like a joke. These guys could have released this album TODAY and it would still blow everything else away.


Hardcore Punk, thrash metal, even a little funk metal... S.T. was at all these places before or at the same time as anyone else, they are truly an influential, yet criminally underrated and overlooked band!

I'm kinda going back and picking stuff up on disc to replace other formats of albums that I like. This little Used CD shop near my work is kick ass. The Discs are cheap, but not particularly well organized.

Getting into Beck more and more. The fact that he doesn't stay within one genre really intrigues me. Plus, his "Sea Change" album is the ultimate "It's 3 am and the party is winding down chill out" album.

Thats why I like him. and He does a great job at it too. ALmost prince like. Sea Change is an overlooked masterpiece of his. Beautiful stuff. He really doesnt have a down album. Every album is great and unique.

One of the most innovative artists I know. Also got the skills and talents too.

If you havent checked out mutation I must say you should do that. Sort of Sea Change like expect more bluesy.

All DL Roth era Van Halen releases are short...or seem so anyways. My fave is Van Halen II which, I feel, has stronger material than the first release (and all subsequent VH releases for that matter) and it clocks in at about 35 minutes total.

Fair Warning I like also, but not as much as II.....it's a bit of a downer release, don't you think? I thought it was kinda odd for "the ultimate party band" to put out that kind of release.....very interesting. I also think it's the last one that's really worthwhile because I wasn't big on the nearly all covers of Diver Down and grew to really dislike 1984 over time.....as for Van Hagar....pfffffftttt.

I imagine they are short because every year from 78 - 84 VH was either in the process of recording an album, or touring. Warner Bros was milking that golden goose for all it was worth. My favorite bounces between Fair Warning and The debut. I like the guitar playing on FW the best though. This is my first experience with the remasters and I think they did a nice job with FW.
