The more and more I listen to Coheed and Cambria, I keep finding endless things to love about this band. The musicianship, the concept, the lyrics, etc, it all shows how damn talented this band is. One of the songs that I’ve been stuck on of theirs is, “In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3.” This song is epically huge, a bit proggy but, full of rock. As a title track, it’s pretty spectacular. Live this song is even more powerful. Over the years too, it’s become a live staple. Interestingly too, this was the third single from the album of same name.

Today the lineup for Psycho Fest in Las Vegas was announced. One of the names that caught my attention right away on the bill was Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. I’ve been a fan of them for years. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them a few times over the years and they never disappoint. I’ve previously written about them before, and if you haven’t ever really listened to them, you are missing out. With all that in mind, I started my day off delving back into their catalog and felt compelled to share their “title tracks” from their albums. They really have a knack for writing great rock songs, and their title tracks are pretty damn good.
Thrice is one of those bands that has never played it safe. They’ve always had a vision and direction that they wanted to go and they went for it. No matter what, they stayed true to themselves and delivered the goods time after time. Throughout their 20 plus year career, Thrice has made some very profound albums that have shaped many peoples musical stories. I still remember hearing Illusion Of Safety way back when, and how that left an impact on me and started to change up what I was listening to at the time.
I have a bunch of new topics coming up shortly and this is one that will definitely be fun. Over the years I’ve really noticed something about bands naming albums after certain songs. Those songs in particular always seem to sum up the album as a whole in a way. One band that I noticed that has a real knack for this is Alice In Chains. The title track songs from their albums always had something more to them. So with that in mind, lets take a listen to these gems.
