Re: Best albums of 2004


Can I buy it at Amazon?

The A Perfect Circle album I mentioned above (hold the Amazon link) is called eMOTIVe. Strange title but a great album.

Apparently that band is a spin-off from a band called Tool. Never heard of them (either).

Never heard of Tool?? emoticon Now, fact is, I'm not a huge fan, but Tool is a pretty big name in metal, many people including them in the prog-metal catagory. But they are a very popular band, hard to imagine you've never heard of them.

Marillion: Marbles

Easily Marillion's finest in a decade, although I have a soft spot for This Strange Engine.

Nightwish: Once

The symphonic metal release of the year, imo.


Trans-Siberian Orchestra: The Lost Christmas Eve

The more I hear it, the more I like it!

What is the rest of this album like? I've only heard the single, Don't Hurt Yourself, which I think is absolutely superb. Love this track. Played it loads over the last few months.

I think it's the only Marillion track I have heard that isn't called Kayleigh! emoticon

It's been a good year for Glenn (but then it's always a good year for Glenn nowadays!) he's released:

The Dep Sessions (new mix although not new material)

Soulfully Live In The City Of Angels is a corker

Wild Seed Of Mother Earth by Voodoo Hill is also excellent IMO

Some other good releases have been:

Dio - Master Of The Moon

Dream Theater - Live At Budokan

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Live In Hyde Park

John Fruscainte - Any one of his numerous releases

John Pertrucci & Jordan Rudess - An Evening With

Hmmm can't think of any more, but there probably are!

Well, the rest of Marbles is a bit different, but still worth listening to. If you don't know Marillion I would start with
-Brave or Afraid of Sunlight (both great albums with Mr. H on vocals)
-Misplaced Childhood (classic from the Fish era! with Kayleigh on it...)

Re: Best albums of 2004


Forgive me my naive optimism, but the new release of U2 seems unusually interesting, coming from that corner. According to Bono's release ad, it's really their first album. And the snippet I've heard was much more plain rock than the high-flown pop they've produced the latter years.

Might be a good one, might not, but I like the direction of things here.

No, I haven't, really.

While not a huge fan, would you recommend them?

Well, they are a talented band, but but a bit erratic. I find there's really good stuff on their albums, but there's always these weird little bits that they stuff in between the good songs, which disrupts the flow. If you have the ability to check out songs before buying, I would listen to Schism and Parabola of their last album, Lateralus. That would give you a good feel for what they sound like, and you could decide if it's for you.

Thanks Rick, I will.

Meanwhile, I do recommend the A Perfect Circle album. Rarely cover albums impress me but this sure did.

I just read a review of it from a local paper and the reviewer said that it's close to Tool's albums but better: he said it's as if the musicians have found themselves through this side project.
