25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

25 Albums Turning 25 That Don’t Suck

This is my fifth edition of “25 Albums” for Decibel Geek. And things were getting a little thin by 94. Grunge had basically morphed into top forty “alternative” music like Weezer and Belly causing Kurt Cobain to blow his brains out. Pearl Jam sued Ticketmaster and lost. Gotta love those service charges.  Green Day ushered in the pop-punk movement that would influence future greats like Fall Out Boy and Panic At The Disco. Pink Floyd toured…

Misfits Enforcing Strict No Phone Policy

Those of who find their concert experience tainted by someone holding up a cell-phone in their field of vision, relief may be on the way.  For their upcoming show in Las Vegas on December 28th, the reunited Misfits will be enforcing a cell-phone free experience by utilizing a somewhat new technology called the Yondr bag.  It’s a burgeoning enterprise being utilized by artists like Dave Chappelle and Cage the Elephant as well as in classrooms….

DANZIG – Black Laden Crown (Album Review)

DANZIG – Black Laden Crown (Album Review)

If there is an upside to music sales being in the toilet it’s the artists have fewer people to answer to and typically can do a record because they are inspired to do so and can do it the way they want.

DANZIG – Skeletons (Album Review)

DANZIG – Skeletons (Album Review)

Maybe it’s the product of an ever-changing record industry or just an easy way to take advantage of modern recording methods.  Or maybe it’s just easier than writing new songs.  Cover albums seem to be trending.  And I’m not sure why.  Record sales are in the toilet.  But are people who won’t buy new music from an artist they like going to run to Best Buy to pick up an album of covers?  Is radio more likely to play…
