This list is also in NO PARTICULAR ORDER… EXCEPT NUMBER 1!!!

 

01) A Perfect Circle- Eat The Elephant:
What a disappointment. This album is a glorified Puscifer record. After 15 years of nothing, this is the best they could do? Give me a break. It really doesn’t bode well for the hope of what the new Tool album is going to be like. This album is what I like to call Hot Garbage

02) Godsmack- When Legends Rise:
03) Myles Kennedy- Year Of The Tiger
04) Jack White- Boarding House Reach
05) Shinedown- Attention Attention
06) Black Label Society- Grimmest Hits
07) Of Mice And Men- Defy

Live Review: Nine Inch Nails at The Palladium

IMG_5212.JPG

When a band as big as Nine Inch Nails opts to play small venues and do multiple nights, you know that it’s going to be special. Back in 2009, I was lucky to get to go to a few of the Wave Goodbye shows Nine Inch Nails did in Los Angeles. I was able to go to the Wiltern, Fonda and Palladium shows. Each of those nights have always stood out in my concert going history. The Palladium show that evening was special as The Downward Spiral was played in its entirety. Last night didn’t have that happen but it was one of those shows that rank pretty high in my now 18 times seeing Nine Inch Nails.
