Don't we have a "What are you listening to lately?" topic?

uh, y'know, the sounds that sound good together... sometimes... and sometimes sounds like the disgusting "squish squish" sound Slicker's mom makes whenever she walks

I listened to most of the Weezer songs. Surprisingly good.

They are catchy. Tired of Having Sex is an all time favourite.

I'm listening to (not much change):

Foster the People (Lonely Hearts Club tracks, though I don't have the album yet)
Phoenix (Bankrupt from a few years ago, my daughter reminded of their mind blowing pop on my last trip home)
(Insert "classic rock" 90s alternative band name here)

As I read this line, Godsmack pops up on my playlist. Today also happens to be the 25 year anniversary of Alice in Chains' Jar of Flies album.

That was my favourite Alice in Chains disc. It's only about 30min long if I recall. Not nearly has heavy as some of their stuff, but really good.

Yeah, 30 minutes, 7 songs.
Jar of Flies was my first AIC album.
I Stay Away and No Excuses are great grunge staples.

Listening to the new Tool album. It is 2019, so you either like Tool, or you don't.

I like it. It is what you would expect them to sound like.

Been a long time coming. Hopefully the special edition cd is worth the hefty-ass price people are paying.

The ghost of Tom Petty jamming with Iron Maiden wouldn't be worth $40 (or more likely $150 since they intentionally underproduced it and it's unavailable) for a single CD.

And why the fuck does a fucking charging cord warrant that markup? Those things go for like a dollar.

I liked the first couple of albums I heard in the 90s well enough but never really kept up with them. I think folks are fans of Maynard and his antics as much as they are any of his bands. Dude is a remarkably intense performer & for whatever reason people are all over it.

Like I said, you either like Tool or you don't at this point. Their sound hasn't changed much. They are considered progressive rock/metal, which generally isn't for everybody (like Diabolical). See also, Rush and Yes.

I saw an interview with Maynard recently. I had no idea that he was in the Army as a surveyor. He is in 2 other bands besides Tool.

Tool's album actually knocked Taylor Swift out of the #1 spot on Billboard's album sales chart for last week and her fans were kind of pissed.

I thought David Byrne didn't really seem interested in doing Talking Heads stuff. Glad he did it on SNL.

New Tame Impala album "The Slow Rush" on heavy repeat. I really like this band, thanks to my daughter for the recommendation. It's cool when your kids turn into music geeks & bring you their shit.

A taste if anyone cares (synthy pop music with disco beats):
