If Free Hand sounds like the 80s then it was really ahead of it's time, since it was released in 1975.

Oh definitely. But I don't care for too much of the 80s rock sound. I'll be revisiting it in the next few days so we'll see. I have a feeling it will sound nothing like the 80s.

I caught up with In a Glass House and The Power and the Glory last night, Free Hand likely today.

Anyone else make it all the way through?

I'm guessing only me, to be quite honest, a review a day might not seem like much, but most people get through a thread like this in a few months. The fact that I did it in the week, on time, and without delays I felt deserved a bit more attention than it perhaps has recieved.

It's tough getting people to listen to stuff when it's not already on their agenda, though. I assume many of us feel like there aren't enough hours in a day to listen to all the stuff we intend to listen to that day. So it's hard to squeeze in new recommendations and such. I find that things I discover on my own get played much more quickly than stuff recommended by others...unless I really connect with that recommendation. So...that might be why. People who aren't familiar with GG may work their way through this in a few months, as you say. And GG is definitely an acquired taste. For me, I was already familiar with 3-4 of the albums and curious about the others...I think what made me go for it was a comment about the debut being more bluesy and I guess straight-forward compared to the ones I'd heard, so it piqued my interest. After playing it, I was pleasantly surprised so I kept on going. To be honest I feel now that I like the earlier stuff better than Octopus. I think it's the vocals that always bothered me with that album and forward, they seem less...I don't know...annoying on the early stuff. Regardless, I've gotten use to them but really didn't like them when I first heard GG.

The comment about listening to stuff you discover first couldn't be more true. Generally if I discover something and get it I normally put in on the moment whatever I'm listening to finishes. It's not really right becuase if someone else reccomends something they have taken the time to explain why they like it and why I should listen to it. Problem is, with people reccomending stuff so often, there's a lot to listen to.

But then there's always the argument, why join a music forum if you're not going to try new things.

Exactly. I've put a lot of time into recommending stuff to particular people on other forums, and it's discouraging when they don't respond or don't get around to checking them out for a while. But then we sometimes do the same thing ourselves. There's just so much music out there. And often, someone will make recommendations to someone else based on their broad tastes, and the person may be on a certain kick at the moment and that stuff doesn't fit in right away. There are a lot of factors. But yes the bottom line is that we're here to discover new stuff...but also to spread the word about what we like.
