Someone is after my heart. Queen has long been one of my favorite bands, and now, someone has visualized and organized their songs by themes:
Now, if you are as big a fan as I am, you know that there were indeed four visions as each member of the band had his own specific composition style and they each individually composed very different sounding songs.
Brian May (ballads):
Roger Taylor (always more straight rock):
John Deacon (more conventional, soft/pop):
Freddy Mercury (baroque!):
Fluorescent Adolescent, with a video that perfectly reflects how we all feel towards the end of the semester…
Not a new album here but a great collection of B-sides (import only), and the first awesome track, The Truck Driver and His Mate:
With a single from their upcoming new album. “Madness” does not sound like a Muse song at all, so, I am reserving judgement until I get to listen to the whole album:
No big surprise here. There are no reasons to have heavy metal in African or Asia. It’s just not cultural place for this genre. And yes, Scandinavia and Iceland are well known bastions of heavy metal bands. But Greece and Portugal? The original articles notes these but does not provide an explanation either.

I miss Shootyz Groove. This album was running non-stop in my car when I drove hundreds of miles a week between UofC Stamford in CT and Western New England College in Springfield, MA (the blessed life of the adjunct). Too bad the band broke up after it:
Oh man, they’re calling it quits. Well, good opportunity to remind ourselves of what made them different in the music scene (and it’s about Facebook too!):
Gosh I love this new Hard Fi album (especially because the previous one was so disappointing), so, here is another single from their Killer Sounds album, Fire in The House:
Their previous album was a dud but this one is better, as in, back to the basics of their earlier work. Also, this video is interesting.
