To be honest, I don’t think I’m gonna get the new albums by either Pink Floyd or Ac/Dc. Pink Floyd released a new album called, “Endless River” which is a tribute to Rick Wright and unreleased material recorded around the “Division Bell” sessions. Honestly, I wasn’t too impressed with their new song that just came out, “Louder Than Words” in which David Gilmour sings. I wasn’t too impressed with that song at all. It was kind of boring and un-listenable at best. I listened to other clips of the album in ITunes and wasn’t too thrilled about the other tracks so I don’t think I’m gonna get it. I do like Pink Floyd, I prefer their older stuff with Syd Barrett and Roger Waters. I’ve noticed that “Endless River” is getting mostly negative reviews so I guess the rest of the Pink Floyd fanbase would come to an agreement that this new album release is a bit of a let down and disappointment.
As for Ac/Dc, I’m not really all that thrilled with their new songs either. It’s just the same typical three or four chord pop songs that Ac/Dc have always been known to writing. Plus, I don’t want to get an Ac/Dc album that doesn’t have Malcolm Young on guitar.
I don’t think I’m gonna get these two albums at all and think I’m gonna skip ’em.
I am gonna get the new Smashing Pumpkins album, “Monuments To An Elegy”, I’ve been impressed with the songs that Billy Corgan have been releasing so far so I’m probably gonna end up buying that one. There are still a few other albums I need to get that came out earlier this year like Fozzy “Do You Wanna Start A War”, Primus “Primus & the Chocolate Factory”, Opeth “Pale Communion” and Judas Priest “Redeemer of Souls”. I’ll try to get to those albums pretty soon.
I’ll have to admit that 2014 was a pretty decent year of music. I purchased quite a bit of new albums this year and I usually don’t buy too many new albums. When will my top music list be up this year? At the end of year I usually do a Top 10 Best of but this year, I think I’m gonna make it a top 15. So at the end of December I’m gonna do a list of Top 15 Best Music Albums of 2014. I’ll do the same for movies too. I’ll make the Top 15 Best of Music and Movies lists in a video blog at the end of the year… either at the end of Dec. or beginning of January.
