Hendrix-- Both Sides of the Sky
This album rocks, with a mix of hard grooves/blues and fully fleshed out songs, and Hendrix at top form. Sound quality is excellent, quite "warm" on my system, yet dynamic. On another note, three days ago I got what I thought was this Hendrix album, excitedly opened it and... it was some Judas Priest live album.
That was a major buzzkill!
Some at Amazon must have grabbed from the "JU" shelf, not "JI" All good now.
Porcupine Tree-- Lightbulb Sun.
I haven't met a Porcupine Tree album I didn't like. This one starts out a bit mellow, then builds to proggy/hard goodness, albeit not the level of Fear of a Blank Planet. As with everything Steven Wilson, the production is superb, being clean, balanced, with great instrument separation and non overdone highs... Need to relisten tonight.
