I don't make any pretensions to thinking DF are cool or great, but considering all the hate they get here and elsewhere I was just surprised that they didn't suck as I thought they would. You know me: if it's metal, has melody and I can understand the singer I'm usually fine with it. Is it original? Hell no. Do I care? See last response.

I would probably not listen to a full album again for pleasure (though I may review another just to annoy you) but I would grab a track or two for a playlist and not feel in the least ashamed or embarrassed.

Just kind of throwing that in there

Yeah. Still don't care. If I like how it sounds I'll listen to it. If 100000 people hate it and me and one other person likes it, so what? We've all different tastes and I'll be damned if I'm going to stop listening to a band just because they're universally hated and laughed at. If I did that I wouldn't even exist!

Any nonsuckiness they may have is merely down to their blatant ripping off of Stratovarius and they deserve no credit for it. Bu yao.

I'm not saying they deserve credit. I'm not about to say they should be nominated for a Grammy or anything. But I don't hate 'em and nothing you or anyone else says will change that. You do hate them and I don't have a problem with that. When you rule the world you can order me to hate .... oh hold on, have I said too much? Too soon? When IS the mind-destroying ray due to be finished anyway? I thought you said Thursday....

I know I'm not black and my name isn't Francis, but may I be permitted to recommend something also, my dear Trollheart?

Sure, if you want. I'm just making it clear that for the moment I'm concentrating on the original list I made, so if I take your rec it won't be reviewed for quite some time. But by all means, send me your idea.

Default Update for week ending April 13 2014

For the first time in a very long while there's a whole page of updates to get through! Better start writing now then...Anteater is back to complete the story of his musical influences when growing up, culminating in his love for Jazz and featuring such artistes as Herbie Hancock, Sun Ra and Pat Metheny in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...n-dollars.html Oh, and with some videogame music thrown in.A new journal this week is from the lovely and missed Astronomer, the member formerly known as Lateralus, and she's looking http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...c-journal.html at some sixties icons such as Diana Ross, Joe Tex and Bobbie Gentry. Be watching this one closely.There's a whole lot happening in Black Francis's journal, where he's continuing to tell us about http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...l-journey.html and looking at, among many others, NOFX, Violent Femmes, Seether and The Stranglers.Speaking of Astronomer's previous username (synchronicity, huh?) Briks is reviewing that very Tool album down http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...seur-cave.html way, and doesn't seem too impressed by it. He's also checking out Electric Wizard, and seems more enamoured of that: the heaviest album I've ever heard, to quote the man.Twiztid, Flipper, Chrome and Swearing at Motorists: no, not the misadventures of someone unable to install the latest Google browser while driving and playing pinball. These are just some of the many albums Goofle is listening to in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ening-log.htmlFranco has started a journal! Well he says it's his second but I don't remember the first. Anyway, in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...epe-kalle.html he promises to talk about music other than African. And in his first post he's talking about ... anyone? African music. D'oh! Still, he also looks at AC/DC's “Highway to Hell”, so perhaps we can expect a more varied choice of music? Time will tell.And speaking of the Australian rockers, LadyisLingering includes them in the latest feature in her http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ic-memory.html, as well as Fleetwood Mac, Steppenwolf and more.Powerstars drops in to tell us about Nirvana's being inducted into the R&RHoF in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...sicalness.htmlwhile Silenzio is looking at a chillwave album from Washed Out in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...mix-music.htmlWhich brings us back to me. Trying to maintain all these journals is not easy, but this week there's a review of This Patch of Sky's latest in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...i-reviews.html with the scores for the latest album tackled in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...m-reviews.html, and getting deeper into http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...azz-blues.html, there's a review of “Offramp” by The Pat Metheny Group. Meanwhile http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...d-journal.html has, as promised (or threatened), two reviews of prog albums from the list of 100 Top Prog Albums of 2013, with Karfagen and Amplifier. More to come. That just leaves us this week with http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-emporium.html, with more Red Dwarf, Frasier and Onedin Line, as well as the finale of Mayday. New stuff coming soon!

Meanwhile back in the early 80s Unknown Soldier is checking out Def Leppard's “High and dry” as he continues http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...y-history.html

and Urban is back with another episode in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...who-thing.html, this time it's from the Tennant era (and it's bad...)

Finally, last but not least, YorkeDaddy closes us out with reviews of Bombay Bicycle Club, Nickel Creek and Mac Demarco in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-personal.html

So who's this week's

Well, strangely enough and I think for the first time it's awarded to someone but not that person's journal, in other words, it's posted in someone else's. When I read how excited and enthusiastic Astronomer was about Urban's Doctor Who Thing I just had no hesitation in awarding this to her. Not only does it surely make Urban happy that someone is so into his journal, on which he has worked so hard, but it just fair warms the cockles of your heart to see someone so genuinely passionate about a show, and a journal. So young lady, this one is yours. And welcome back!

The Lazarus Experiment is definitely one of those "filler" storylines that pretty much epitomises the badly CGI-ed monsters and predictable endings and so forth (however, at least it's not as bad as The Unicorn and the Wasp...) One thing I did like about the episode was the idea of throwback DNA creating a so seemingly unhuman monster, even if it was slightly ridiculous. In a way it also set up the ongoing suspicion that Martha's family have about The Doctor and the trouble that it will eventually cause in the major plotlines of that series.

I loved Martha as a companion, and it's episodes just like these that never did her justice!

Anyway, really enjoying the thread (that I pretty much just read in its entirety) Love your little references to other aspects of the show... the big red button.
And so, after a pretty busy week in Journaltown, a week that saw two more new journals open and some updated that hadn't been for a little while, it's kudos to eeryone who works so hard on their material and time for me to take my leave once again. By the way, is anyone else having that annoying problem with posts in your journal that are correctly formatted when you upload them but later lose the formatting and appear as one big block of text, and have to be redone? Anyone getting that other than me? It happened again today. Annoying to say the least. If anyone knows why that's happening I'd love to hear from you.

Till next week then,
Toodles!
