I am a very big fan!! I have seen them twice. I was going to drive 600 miles round trip to see them, but the show was cancelled due to a large snow storm. I have seem them twice in Pittsburgh though.
I have not really listened to the new one yet. I would consider their first three albums nearly flawless. Have they actually surpassed their first three efforts?
My album of the year is Jim James last release, called Regions of Light and Sound Of God.
He is the lead singer of My Morning Jacket. I love this record!!!
David Bowie ... The Next Day ... Hands down the best Rock album this year ... And I'm not a Bowie fanboy and listening mostly to classical and jazz the best recordings for me fall easily ito the classical realm.
But this record is something else; the way Bowie has structured the music with differnent layers and incorporating noise - brilliant. Sirius radio is currently running a 24/7 Bowie channel with frequent promos about his ongoing influence. One goes something like this: "Bowie - he's 1/3 glamour, 1/3 charm, 1/3 talent and 1/3 intelligence. " Gotta love it. He really is an alien.
