yeah, that one interview with dave mustaine? that was great, then mustaine tried giving navarro lessons and it was awesome

but yeah, i'm still holding the torch for Nothing's Shocking

Yea thats the one. It was a weekly internet show wasnt it? Because I saw a few others and it was Dave N. interviewing and praising great guitarists. I actually enjoyed them, he seems like a cool guy.

I think it is the best Hendrix album. Bold as Love is a perfect song. I intended to review this album before much longer myself. The strange thing about this album is that i was very rushed because the band had a contractual obligation to fulfill.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Agreed that it is up with his best albums, but I would have to say his debut is better. Simply because it sounds more raw and under produced, basically the way true rock-n-roll should be.

Btw, you probably dont like John Mayer but he did a cover of Bold as Love on his album Continuum. You should check it out, one of the best covers iv heard.

yeah, he does seem like a real chill guy

but with Hendrix, Axis has gotta be my favorite. Are you Experienced comes in second for me, but Axis was when he started to really experiment and branch out.

See I feel that by branching out it gave subsequent albums after the debut a very disjointed feel. although certain tracks are arguably better than some on the debut, Are You Experienced is where it's at for me. There is not one missed beat on that album for me.

Have you ever heard this album:



Masters Of Reality-The Blue Garden. Chris Goss begin his assault on stoner rock. I love it and I would be very interested in what you would have to say about it.

yeah, i agree that AYE does sound a bit ditached from the rest of Jimi's work

as for the album you suggested i think i could give it a shot, but i gotta get through some other crap i just got via download, but don't worry i can put that on the top of my to review list.

My John Mayer Take: Seems like a douche bag but is undeniably talented and shows moments of hilarious humility and self awareness. Dude is talented but I hate him for some reason.

the review (like all others) is great, but... you kind of missed the point of perry's spoken word bit about 'sex, drugs, and rock & roll' at the start of 'ain't no right'. he's not commenting about those so much as the censorship that was so prevalent in the late 80s. you have to listen to close to hear him say 'i don't ask what position you f*ck your wife in, so take that piss cup outta my face' as his monologue fades into the intro of the song.

i find it funny that you hear a big sense of freedom on the record as well since the band was on the verge of collapse for most of the recording process. the ONLY track from the album that the band recorded together was 'three days' and they pretty much just all walked in, played it, then walked out again. you're right that it was about perry's friend... but... she was a little more than just a friend. the cover of the album is a paper mache representation of perry, his significant other casey niccoli, and xiola. i'll leave it up to your imagination as to what happened over the 3 days when xiola visited them from the east coast.

as for 'classic girl', i never got the sensation of the morning after a party, the sense of calm and peace is always there, but the song always reminds me of the last real classic girl i knew (and let slip away).

alright enough emo crap haha. i'm with you that i prefer NS over ritual. there are some songs i like better on ritual (then she did, classic girl, three days) but overall NS is a stronger album to my ears. i never did bother getting my hands on 'strays' the lead off single didn't do squat for me. 'kettle whistle' is a worthy compilation though, the live version of 'three days' smokes the crap out of the album take.
