Comments from world on a string

I really love Strangest Thing but boy am I glad we aren't sleeping on The Weather Station. That's gonna be another great one, albeit in a different way.

Didn't know Terror Pigeon had a new one out -- really loved Live It Up Before You Die It Up!

More importantly than anything Prophets of Rage is doing, when are we getting that El-P produced ZDLR album?

I don't think there's anything PoB has put out the last two years that made me go "meh."

It's great he's getting the critical attention he deserves after playing a support role for so many acts that are finally getting the critical attention they deserve.

Very good choice this week! Jim is a great player and somehow makes everything he does look effortless. Saw him on the Ambsace tour back in 2015 with Nathan Salsburg opening for Steve Gunn and his (and Nathan's) playing just blew my mind. Two other things worth noting is that Joan Shelley also recorded in Jeff Tweedy's loft with Nathan Salsburg -- so something good must be going on up there. And Jim is also is in the current lineup of Doug McCombs' (of Tortoise fame) band Brokeback. Both albums definitely worth checking out.

Thumbs up for Bruised Orange which is my favorite Prine album, not to mention a devastatingly beautiful concept.

I know George is the Larry David character, but that was a very Larry David interaction.

A few of my faves that no one seems to talk about: Ecstatic Vision, "Raw Rock Fury" Jake Xerxes Fussell, "What in the Natural World" Wooden Wand, "Clipper Ship" Endless Boogie, "Vibe Killer"

Yea, agreed. Adam seems kind of like a perfectionist now, so I'd imagine whatever he puts out to the public is damn near what he wants it to sound like.

Yes! Not only that, but my copy was (literally) cut poorly and rubs against the base of tbe stylus on each rotation. But the defect kinda makes it unique.

I'm curious to hear the final cut of Thinking of a Place. I picked it up on RSD and the note on the sleeve indicated it was an early mix of the track.

I'd be 100% ok with In the End replacing Don't Stop Believin' as the go-to, drunken, everyone knows 1/4 the words and chorus sing along.

Linkin Park was my first concert in 7th grade in 2002 on the first Projekt Revolution tour with Cypress Hill and Adema. It has nothing to do with this list, but this list makes me very happy.

Ride My Llama already has that vibe, so I'm curious to hear what that one sounds like.

This band rules. There's also a good recent episode of Sound Opinions that talks about the Monks for a bit. Worth listening to!

Here for the Rossen love fest. He is one of the finest rock guitarists we have going. The way he makes complicated jazz chords and odd progressions sound so melodic and accessible is a real talent. I also can't get over some of his covers (aside from Grateful Dead). His take on Townes Van Zandt's 'Kathleen' is chilling.

I agree. I think as a kid my realization of the power and dynamic control of David Bowie's voice came when hearing the first "your eyes can be so cruel, just as I can be so cruel" part of Within You.

Can I be excited for it, and still really, really want another Mountain Man album?

This seems like as good of a spot as any for this -- Did anyone pick up anything good this past Saturday for RSD? I was fortunate enough to snag the last copy of The War on Drugs single, and a copy of The Count Five's re-release of "Psychotic Reaction." Unfortunately couldn't find the Nathan Salsburg/Bonnie "Prince" Billy release, but overall I'm happy.
