Def Leppard - Def Leppard (2015)



Did this come out with little fanfare? I remember a little news about how all the guys were going to sing on it. Except of one song, I couldn't tell. It sounded spot on classic Leppard vocal wise. Music was iconic too. It's like nothing's changed. Thus the good and bad. It sounds like all their other albums. If you like the formulic sound, then you're going to like this. I liked it, but not much stands out for me. I liked a few songs and two of them lean less into arena rock than the others. I guess I'm looking for something different.

The lead off song rocks and sounds very much like their greatest hits. Let's Go'

but I enjoyed Battle of my Own a lot more.

There's more good stuff on here. If you like Def Leppard, then you will not be disappointed with this offering... There's something here for you.

I totally forgot about this. I remember some press with Joe when he was talking about the idea or intent of what the album would be. Beyond that, this fell completely off my radar. I could have gone another 5 years and never remembered this were it not for you bringing it up. Definitely going to check in at my Library and see if they have a copy for me to check out.

I don't post here as much as I should. It's quite a thrill to hear a song that totally grabs you. More often than not, it's usually watching something (TV, Movie, etc).

So we tried Lucifer the other night... and it was OK... we may continue, but it opened with No Rest For The Wicked by Cage The Elephant and I loved it. Never heard of it or the group before.

Hope to post more as they come to me.

Great find. As for the series, I'm skipping it as I expect it to be cancelled. It's FOX. If it makes it a full season and has good word of mouth, I may revisit on DVD.

Upside Down - Paloma Faith

Very poppish, but damn if it doesn't grab me. Heard in the credits of some recent movie. Love it

Disturbed performs on Conan.  I like this cover, and I think this performance might be slightly better.  Certainly clearer.

Coincidence... Maybe. Several the guys at work had me listen to this. They never talk music, but this week... This song. I like it.

I've been listening to Paolo Nutini. Heard just one snippet of a track from a movie, enough to catch my ear.

Iron Sky

Also Elle King is my favorite go to lately. When I'm listening to spotify outside, I'll crank up her playlist.

S.O.B. - Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

https://youtu.be/zuHZAQbM7MA

I forget where exactly I first heard this. It was probably part of a movie soundtrack. Just love it. I could imagine performing this in my band, getting the crowd going.
Now to check out the rest of the album

Adele - 25 (2015)

Listened to this the other day. The songs are well crafted and Adele executes them flawlessly. But I don't think it's as epic as it has been made out to be. I think the first 5-6 songs are the best, but everything after that seems to be too much of the same thing. Same tempo, same arrangement. I prefer 21 more. I give 25 4 Stars out of 5.

This is pretty cool.. or at least an amusing little bit of eye candy.


Quote from: Digg Video
Oscilloscopes visually measure voltages, which coincidentally is how sound is transmitted before it hits a speaker. But what happens when an oscilloscope measures a funky techno beat?

I've got that CD. It's from a Sci-Fi soundtrack  ;)
