Re: Music Thread

Justin Bieber was giving concert in Copenhagen Saturday evening. That was CrAzY. One tabloid (sworn Bieber hater and hetzer) started the The SUN style reporting Friday and it's still running Monday. They must have passed 30 articles by now.

When they couldn't trace down, what hotel the young Canadian was staying at, they labelled him a 'snob' for trying to avoid his fans. .. We all know, had they found him and fans had invaded the hotel, they would have labelled him a 'public nuisance' and accused him of ruining the stay for other hotel guests.

No surprise, the tabloids critic only gave Bieber 1 out of 6 stars (mildly surprising it wasn't 0), but suppose the 45,000 screaming girls felt different. What do I know.

Takes me back. I was in Parken in 1988 for The Boss' first ever concert in Denmark. Now that was EPIC!

Re: Music Thread

I am not a hardcore fan of country and western music but I really enjoy this performance. Also, considering the current state of Caroline's game the sombre tone of this seems entirely appropriate.

I'm certainly not a fan of this type of music either, but I have to say it's a nice song. Even though I would do without the male voice or replace him with another singer.

By the way, I'd like to thank you for introducing me to Alison Krauss. Her voice is beautiful. I'm quite sure I've heard her name before, but that was it. Now I'll remember her.

Re: Music Thread

As for me, I am particularly adept of the best Symphonic Metal bands. A style of music almost unknown in my country but much more popular in South America and some parts of Europe.

Within Temptation:


Nightwish:


Kamelot (featuring the incredible Simone Simons from Epica)

She recorded an album with Robert Plant (Raising Sand) that was very well received critically (I'm not sure if it actually sold well).

It is a bit skimpy and, by now, a bit out of date, but Now That I've Found You: A Collection is probably the best single disc introduction to her music.

Symphonic metal, eh? In my youth I was a bit of a metal head but I do not believe I have ever dipped my toe in that particular genre. Are there any albums in particular that you would recommend?

You played along very well(btw,you're right about Krauss,too).There's a lovely poster named Ana(poster name 'Danci Dementieva')whom you might meet in your forays here at TF.There's a bad habit where Mexicans from the north,like myself,refer to anyone below Durango state as 'from the south' or 'chilangos',and lots of folks don't appreciate that.Honestly,though,I don't do it very much unless it's with someone who's good at taking a joke.

If you meet Ana here at TF,then you can tell her I said that 'chilanga chicas' from Hidalgo are VERY sexy.As I recall,she likes Nightwish a lot,as do some other regulars in the Dementieva forum

Thanks for the tip about Alison Krauss. I'll keep it in mind. I might find some extracts on iTunes.

As for Symphonic Metal, I would recommend Mother Earth (not the live album, since the singer moves a lot in their shows and it affect her voice, so she can't reach the highest notes live). The Silent Force and The Heart Of Everything are also incredibly good. Their oldest albums are more metal and experimental (Enter, Mother Earth), however they tend to go a bit more in the pop-rock style of music recently, even if the quality is still very high.

As for Nighwish, it's far more powerful than Within Temptation. The latter lies somewhere between rock and metal, while Nighwish is pure metal. They changed their singer in 2005 and I personally prefer their first era, with Tarja Turunen. Their best albums? Wishmaster, Century Child and Once.

The album with Robert Plant sold pretty well, yes. Good album too (I have it). I like Alison Krauss a lot, but I like this type of Americana/country-ish/bluegrass type of music in general. It's a bit in the style of that whole post-hippie Californian soft-rock, country-rock, singer/songwriter scene from the 70's that I like a lot. Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell, CSN (also great at tennis btw), Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt - I love that stuff. And todays Americana scene reminds me more of that than of the more yie-haw horseshit on my cowboy boots redneck side of country.

Yup, I love Neil's mellow, gentle acoustic songs too. Like this one:



Billy Corgan is someone that reminds me a bit of Neil Young. Musically they are fairly different but they are both adept at loud/noisy rock songs while at the same time being able to write very gentle and beautiful acoustic material. Variety is neat.

Re: Music Thread

Any Rolling Stones fans? If so I very much recommend the Brussels Affair live release. It's not "new" (it was released in October, 2011) but I only recently found out about it. It is a live album from the 1973 tour featuring Mick Taylor. For me it is certainly as good or better than their only other live album from this era (Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!) and it is fantastic to hear more material featuring Taylor. I love Ronnie Wood but he can't play like Taylor can. The downside is that it is only available as an insanely expensive vinyl box set or as a download but it is well worth a listen.

I wonder for how many years more, Avril can play the rebel teen girl

She is 27 after all and married twice already



She is hot as hell though.

Interesting release for sure. But I think I have the 'stones live' section of my record collection covered. Cd's, dvd's - it almost seems like the Stones release a new live album or video every couple of months. I would rather see them working on a new studio album than selling us yet another live album with Jumpin' Jack Flash and Satisfaction.
