I noticed this when I saw them back in January too. He seems to use natural vibrato a lot more live than he does on the album. It's certainly a unique trait of his voice, but it does sound misplaced...

I actually think his voice is getting better with age. So much soul in it these days.

I saw him earlier in the month and his performance of Blood & Wine was flawless.

Was lucky enough to catch them live a few weeks back and it was so good. Loved the live version of Digital Age so will try and get my hands on that newly recorded version.

Not at all. The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi is one of the best concept albums ever recorded, full stop. I love Between the Heart and the Synapse, but The Earth Sings forms a much stronger connection with...

Only been tuning in for the last 3 podcasts, but love what you guys are doing here and enjoyed checking out all of those openers in your top threes.

Would be difficult for me to pick a solid top 3...

Yeah Makers is my favourite of the back catalogue. I only own True Devotion, The Brag & Cuss, Maker and Suicide Medicine so I've still got a lot of other albums to check out. It's one hell of a...

Oh man I envy you a lot for catching Reuben while they were still together, especially at a gig with HIFH!

I was too late to the party with Reuben and got into them shortly after they broke up. I...

The line-up is ridiculously good this year. Annoyingly can't make it.

There are a lot of great line ups in the UK this year though. Hevy Fest is a big stand out with Thrice, Coheed & Cambria, The...

It is an awesome world we live in when you come back from seeing a heavy-as-fuck band like Russian Circles and have your ears ringing to know that you will wake up tomorrow with a brand new...

So interested in hearing this. Hell is for Heroes were such a solid band and that is one of their best songs. Good to see they are still remembered and celebrated by others in the music industry.

Has anyone already figured out who the guy is in the picture on the cassette flyer?

Just did a Google image search with a screen grab of his face and it is Douglas...

Haha man you got one step more than me. I tried using "Discipleship" as the password for that address too. Thought it'd be a step too far to try the forgotten password steps! That kinda confirms it's...

Not sure whether the messages found by the Tesla statue have any bearing (The_Sower@yahoo.com seems a strange coincidence though...)

Here is a bit of background on the second...

Not out of touch at all! Some guys pointed it out earlier in the thread and it peaked my interests. It's just an interpretation, but pretty nicely explained on the top comment on SongMeanings for You...

I just played the album in the alternative order for the first time (1. Welcome to Bangkok -> 12. You Won't Know). I made the mistake of following the lyrics and meanings and ended up an...

Ode to the Nite Ratz Club is a perfect gutwrencher of a song. Love it as it hits the climax of "I would have never let you go..." and it races off into that stunning instrumental break.

So much to...

You're missing London off the tour dates for 22/05 - so happy I get to correct that! These kind of 10 year anniversary gigs never make it over to the UK. So hard to believe Chroma was nearly 10 years...

Would love some new stuff from these guys soon. Partycrasher was a perfect punk rock album. I can't believe I'd been listening to Strung Out for 10+ years without knowing about A Wilhelm Scream until...

Oh this is gooooood. I somehow missed Television of Saints, but I'll be sure to keep my eye on this release. Glad he got himself a good home in No Sleep too.

Trophy Scars! I'm so surprised more staff members didn't get into that. Good to see it in yours though! Your list matches up fairly well with my own.

I'm really struggling to get into Moose Blood....

I'm unfamiliar with most of your list, but my top 2 matches up exactly with yours. Very interested in checking out nouns and Cloud Nothings.

5/10 match up with my own top 10. Nice list Ryan!

I'm sure you've stated your reasons elsewhere on the website, but how did you come to decide Pianos Become the Teeth take #1 spot? They've come in...
