…binging…

…on music…

no, not like a male feminist on cheezeburgers or a man-0-spherian on whiskey….

So I just got the new Mastodon CD, and I don’t want to say it let me down, but… It seems to be shorter songs like the last album… Not the almost prog of Crack the Sky or the weird thrash tinge of the earlier stuff. I’ll be open minded and give it a few more listens…

And I got a CD by a band called Symphony X, a little obnoxious but really, really good guitar playing…

And I got an old Amorphis CD, and that just took me back to the old days…

But here’s the one that is blowing me away…

  1. I’ve been following Marty since before he joined Megadeth. Excellent guitar player with a style that was ahead of its time.
