    World on Fire - Slash/Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators

    I'm actually disappointed. It's pretty solid, but after the last album, it leaves me feeling cold. For starters, I think they needed to trim the 17 tracks (!) to 11 or 12.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 3: They Heard Me Singing

    So I'm watching last week's episode of Halt and Catch Fire. Party scene, dance club scene, heavily music intensive, of course, from that mid-80's period. The Clash, Police on my Back; Lone Justice, East of Eden; Book of Love, who I saw open for Depeche Mode, Boy; Wire Train, Chamber of Hellos.
    It was a major 80's flashback.

    East of Eden. Maria McKee was so hot.

    Boy
    What a horrible video. But so, so 80's.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 3: They Heard Me Singing

    Which is funny, cause I was thinking of Lone Justice over the weekend for some odd reason. No idea why, but they just popped into my head. A band that should have had a longer career, but the label suits got into their heads, and totally messed them up, took what they were and tried to make them into what everyone else sounded like.

    You can see it here in this clip from one of MTV's New Year's bashes, two songs off their second album sandwiched between two songs from their debut. Introduced synths, and U2-ish guitar atmospherics. Two albums and they were done.

    The Doors - Strange Days

    Not as tight as the self-titled debut, but still good. "People Are Strange" - yeah, been there often the last several years.

    I dunno if it's on that album or not, but twice in the past week I've heard "Whiskey Bar" by them. Once this past weekend, on the road, via random mp3, and tonight in a movie I watched. I hadn't heard that song in at least a decade before this.

    Doesn't mean anything, other than I thought it odd.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    That's technically called "Alabama Song" - it's from the self-titled debut.

    You are correct on the first one, I should have remembered that. And after taking a look, I only have Greatest Hits and their self-titled debut, so I am doubly wrong. I feel shame.

    Moonlight Drive is one of my favorite Doors songs if not my actual favorite.

    I just can't get past the full version of "The End." Such a wonderful song.

    A lot of people consider the Doors vastly overrated while I find them completely underrated. They're far more than the life and death of Jim Morrison and there's some brilliant art in music form going on with them.

    This. They influenced more bands than most people are aware of.

    I'm one of them. I just cannot stand The Doors. And I wanted to like them, I own a couple of their albums, had my mind blown by The End after watching Apocalypse Now. But I just can't do it.

    It didn't help that a friend of mine found a copy of one of Morrison's poetry books, and an old polaroid of him taken at some club show in Boston, stuffed away in the back of a closet at the place he was living at. Ugh, that "poetry" was truly wretched. The kind of stuff that 15 year old high school boys churn out and imagine is some kind of deep inner study of the human soul. just absolutely the most awful dreck imaginable.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 3: They Heard Me Singing

    I went through a Doors faze in college where I got pretty heavy for a couple years and bought all their CDs and read a book or two. Really liked em for a bit.

    Don't really listen to them much anymore. Too much Ray and a fairly weak lead guitar player left me bored after enough listens.



    Some bands I kinda do and then am just done with them. It's like I internalize them - they're in there and I'm better for it - and then don't care to actually listen to them anymore.

    The Doors are one of these bands as are the Beatles.

    The Doors radio hits just got overplayed, and that ain't their fault. That's where I got burnt on them sometimes.

    HI FADE

    I still love the original lineup, but I'm no longer a superfan. Too much repetition.
