The city of Den Bosch gets turned into a jazz festival for a weekend each year, and this is the third time I went there for the occasion. I saw Al di Meola, who's one of my biggest guitar heroes, and got a signed CD from him after the show!

Oh man, the new Fleet Foxes was just as good I was expecting - maybe even better. Probably my favorite album of the year so far next to DAMN., though it hasn't been one of my favorite years for new music overall.

Last night, I went to the Roger Waters concert down in Portland, and man, was it kickass. He played selections from Dark Side of the MoonMeddleAnimalsWish You Were Here, and The Wall, to name a few, and it ended with one of the coolest effects I've seen in a concert...

The new Arcade Fire album might be the most disappointing of the year. I hate literally all of the singles they've put out for it, and most of the positive comments are people accusing the haters of disliking any and all change. I think if people actually stepped back from the damn thing, they'd see it's weaker than their other albums.

Shit, I didn't even know they had a new album until I saw this post. I liked their soundtrack that they did for Her, but I don't remember much about what I've heard from their other discography. How would you say the new album pales in comparison to their other stuff?

Well first off, give their first three albums a listen, they're definitely worth your time. You also might like Reflektor, though it's not my favorite (and the last song is from Her, to boot).

Anyway, the stuff from the new album has this goofy disco-ish sound that I don't like at all. They've flirted with disco before, but they did it a lot better on songs like "Sprawl II" and "Afterlife." Now it just sounds corny, not to mention instantly dated. And the songwriting is a lot weaker, too, and the vocals are really annoying, which isn't a problem I've ever had with Arcade Fire's music until now. I'm kind of amazed that so many people actually like the new stuff, but it's all opinions anyway, and I don't think it's going to go down in history as one of their best records.

Speaking of the Mountain Goats tho, I was just thinking about looking into the rest of their backlog, because stuff from Goths has been coming up on my shuffle pretty often lately. I'm gonna come back to Come To The Sunset Tree (no pun intended) when I can find the time.

i really really really really love Goths. i can understand why people dislike it - i absolutely hated Andrew Eldritch is Moving Back to Leeds when it first came out, and then a few days later I couldn't get it out of my head and it just kind of got stuck there. But Rain in Soho is my fucking jam, i cannot ever skip it. as a real-life alternative young person, i very much relate to this album about alternative young people. who woulda thunk

also, speaking of the goats - i was given tickets to their Raleigh show happening in december way back in july by my dad as a gift, and we would see them together... but i just realized i'm not going to be living here in december. fuck me. they're really good seats too, a row behind the orchestra pit. i'll find a way, i guess.

the carolina theatre is so beautiful. i went there once in high school for a field trip, and remembered thinking it was the nicest place i'd ever set foot in at the time. returning there to see what is probably my favorite band of all time, and especially as an adult... i'm unbelievably excited. unless someone fucking restrains me im gonna find a way to attend this goddamn concert

People didn't like Goths? Hmm. I did feel a little underwhelmed the first few times I listened to it, but it's definitely grown on me. And yeah, Rain in Soho is definitely one of the best on the album.

Also, I went and listened to Sunset Tree this morning. I already cemented This Year and Up The Wolves as favorites of mine, but I like the rest of the album a lot (except that UUUUOORGH sound effect or whatever the fuck that was at 1:48 of Lion's Teeth. That needed to stop).
