The game is pretty great, and that's one of my favorite tunes from it.

Drove over the hill to hear Tommy Emmanuel and Jerry Douglas at Macky Auditorium at CU Boulder Friday night. I've never seen anyone play a guitar like that.

Triumvirat - Spartacus (1975)

Followup to their album Illusions on a Double Dimple, which I posted about a few weeks back. Obscure '70s prog FTW! :lol:

Nita Strauss - Controlled Chaos

Really good guitar work... Most recently she's been playing for Alice Cooper - which to be frank really doesn't do her justice. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Alice Cooper fan but his style of music doesn't let her showcase anything close to her full range.

This is a really cool album... I'm usually not into completely instrumental guitar albums, mainly because they usually just turn into "look what I can do!" examples of how fast or complicated they can play. Controlled Chaos is different... it's just downright catchy.

Haken - Vector (2018)

Some Grade A Prog Metal here. A bit chaotic at times, but that's not necessarily a bad thing if it's not taken to extremes. This gets a big thumbs up from me!

She's got the chops... definitely in the "Neo-Classical Metal" camp ala Malmsteen. Solid playing all around, though I can't say any of the compositions really "grabbed me" on the first couple of listens the way they seem to have done with you.

Why are the drums so high in the mix? The drummer is technically flawless but IMO not all that interesting/exciting. Why make that the focus when this is a guitarist's album?

Sorry to nit-pick something you obviously really enjoyed... different strokes and all that. And it really is pretty good (as in, it will be in my listening rotation for a while).

Well, like I said I usually don't like all-instrumental albums... a lot of them sound to me like one guy (or gal) showing off with a band accompanying them. This one the songs seem more like songs; it's a guitar album but the guitar isn't the only thing in the room that matters.

Why are the drums so high in the mix? The drummer is technically flawless but IMO not all that interesting/exciting. Why make that the focus when this is a guitarist's album?


The drums are a bit forward. I didn't mind that since they're well played but they definitely do stand out.

No worries :D

Really enjoying this brand new drop from Soilwork (as of this morning). Very epic sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-kcWrC ... Or8vimvpbI

Still Life (1999) is where Opeth really hit their stride IMHO. It all comes together here on their fourth album - songwriting, musicianship, and production values.

As I believe I've mentioned here previously, I had a rather unorthodox introduction to this band's body of work. I hadn't listened to any of their albums until just a few years ago, started from their most recent (at the time) album Pale Communion (2014), then worked my way backwards through their albums from there, "Benjamin Button" style. (I also picked up their latest, Sorceress, when it was released in 2016.)

I love everything from Still Life through Pale Communion. TBH they evolved so much over those 18 years that they could be a completely different band, but it's all good.

I'm less in love with the stuff from before that, and Sorceress. The earlier (pre-Still Life) stuff feels a little uneven to me (writing and/or production); and while Sorceress continues to mine the retro-'70s-homage vein like Pale Communion did, it seems less focused to me, maybe even a little lazy/complacent. Here's hoping their next release is more interesting.
