New Dream Theater...I like it. I think it's the best since Portnoy left. Rudess is providing more atmosphere with the keyboards than usual which makes it sound a little more like earlier DT.



Speaking of Portnoy...Neal Morse Band follow up to "Similtude of a Dream" called "The Great Adventure" is a good listen. The video is awful.

I started cleaning out my Apple Music library. I've made it to the Bs. I don't know if I need to keep Beck's entire discography but this one stays for sure...

I forgot about Ben Nichols' solo album. Lucero is better but this record is still solid enough to stay.



This is going to take forever.

Stoner-ish metal, but instead of vocals, they sample televangelists

Do you have iTunes Match?

https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT204146
  • iTunes Match is limited to 100,000 songs.
  • iTunes Store purchases made with the same Apple ID being used for iTunes Match don't count towards the 100,000 song limit.
Previous limit was 25,000. I could see them expanding limit again.

I do. I've got it sorted out now. I had some artists with multiple versions of the same album. Stuff like reissues and expanded versions. I literally had 105 albums by The Fall alone. I got rid of the duplicates and I'm well under the limit.

The Bellrays have a new record out. It’s decent straight-ahead blues rock, but I prefer the higher energy of their older stuff.

Here’s another all-time power pop great. I think I heard the Replacements version first but I like the original better.

These guys are so great. I hear they are playing new songs on tour so we should be getting a new album soon.

Just learned that Sara Romweber of the Dex Romweber Duo passed away a couple days ago. The Dex Romweber Duo was a supergroup of sorts as Sara was in Let's Active (superproducer Mitch Easter's band) and her brother Dexter founded the Flat Duo Jets (who were major influences on Jack White).

I wasn’t aware of her work but Jon Wurster wrote a nice tribute on his Instagram.

Built To Spill announced a big tour to celebrate Keep It Like A Secret’s 20th anniversary. They’re one of the best live bands but there’s no Calgary date so I’ve been listening to some of their bootlegs. Archive.org is a great place to get them and it’s legal.

This 15 min cover of How Soon Is Now is blowing my mind.

Linkin Park - Hands held high

I've had this on repeat constantly all weekend. It just really seems apt even though it was written about different circumstances.

Now that it is 2019 it will soon be time to come up with the top albums of the decade. I was thinking though it is too early to rate albums from this time. How do you compare something just released with something from 9 years ago? Music needs time to settle in your brain and a song that sounds awesome now might become stale in a few years. Jeez I remember when I thought Pretty Fly For a White Guy was the greatest song ever.

From that I decided enough time had passed to rank best albums from the previous decade 2000-2009, the Noughties. Here is a crack at a top 10. Discuss. I might do the 90s next...

Radiohead - Kid A
The White Stripes - White Blood Cells
System of a Down - Toxicity
The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf
The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow
The Streets - A Grand Don't Come for Free
Radiohead - In Rainbows
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
The Kills - Midnight Boom
