Great weekend!!!! TWO wins by the Royals in the ALCS, a good win by Ohio State, and the Vikings defense looked superb against the Chiefs as they won as well! Great stuff, now I'd like to see the Cubbies advance to to the world series versus the Royals, that would be great, so let's see tonight if thy can even up THEIR series.... other than that, great efforts by the Buckeyes, Vikings, and especially the Royals who showed exceptional fortitude in coming back in Game 2 when David Price had perplexed them for most of the game.......shades of the great 1985 club!
So, how did you like the first part of the Queens saga? If you're a longtime fan of them, it's likely old stuff to you (maybe not that fab split with the great Beaver), but if you are new to the Queens, this should be a cool new discovery for ya....hope ya enjoy the rest, the Queens were a significant band of the 2000's, and, as I said before, I think this is the type of thing that will be influential and be appreciated much more in the future.
2005 brought us "Lullabies to Paralyze", a workmanlike effort that isn't essential, but isn't bad either....a 2 disc effort which features a live disc, this is perhaps the weakest Queens studio effort, but there are some standout, uniquely Queens tunes, "Medication", "That's a Killer Scene You Got There Man", "Tangled Up In Plaid".......a fan of the band (myself) wouldn't be without it, for a dabbler, I'm not so sure. The second disc, the live effort from an Atlanta show, is decent, and features a smoking "Song For the Dead".
2007's "Era Vulgaris" brought us a true comeback, a stunning effort in my opinion."Turning of the
Screw", "River in the Road", "Sick Sick Sick" are standouts, but this is a fine and underrated album. I wouldn't dismiss it no matter what my feelings on the band were.....a really good one.
Most recently the "band" (not really the right term, given the shifting lineups and countless guest appearances, but that is QOTSA in a nutshell) has given us "Like Clockwork", 2013, and it is quite a good effort as well......Dave Grohl, Mark Lanegan, Trent Reznor and others make appearances on this one, I think it's also an under-appreciated album, "Keep Your Eyes Peeled" and "My God is the Sun" are standouts.
Again, these are FLAC files, so allow for that fact......it explains the multiple links, but offers a bit better sound than MP3....... some like it, some don't, but the can be converted with a free converter available online.....
