    Anyone feeling 2023 for a release date? It's realistic, gives them time to put it together. We know this band goes at a snail's pace, 3 years is a realistic time frame. It also fits in to the 15 years since CD, like the 15 years from TSI. 

    I'd rather sooner but I cant see it   

    I'd say 2033. They'll release a new single with the 12th Terminator movie.

  2. I'm usually an optimist, but there's no way we're getting a GNR album this year. I'll eat sewage if they come out with a new studio album in 2020. And to add salt to the wound, we'll have to hear more boring SMKC music before any GNR album would ever come close to the light of day. I know people enjoy it, but in a world where GNR could be releasing music and just don't bother, SMKC is not even close to a consolation.

  3. I'm broken up by this news. I immediately thought of his family and hoped that they were at least able to enjoy their time together beyond Neil's retirement. I had no idea he even had brain cancer.

    Rush is my favourite band. Like @Powerage5 said, Neil's playing just gets into your head. Even if you only listen to him once, you'll remember so much about his distinct style. He's impossible to forget. The entire band is like that, really. But there are times where I will just listen to Rush and pick out many individual parts, and realize just how exciting they still are. They're exhilarating beyond measure. And then when you listen to the lyrics, it's the exact same impact. To have an artist make such a significant impact both instrumentally and lyrically, and have both aspects synthesize so organically together, is something truly special.

    Neil was a force. He'll always be inspirational to me for a variety of reasons, especially considering his willingness to continue with the band after multiple tragic circumstances in his life. It's sad to have to accept that one of the three from the band are now gone, but he's left behind such a legacy, and I know I'll never tire of hearing his performances and songwriting for as long as I live.

    R.I.P. :(

    Excellent post on reddit backing me up, with facts and logic

     

    These kinds of write-ups just replace one type of logic for another. Han doesn't have to be good at flying just because he's a smuggler. They could've introduced his character and then established Chewie as the main pilot who did all the flying. There's no logic there. That user is just assuming that Han's an established pilot because he was a smuggler. Doesn't really make any more sense than anything else in the SW universe, really. Viewers will connect the dots, sure. But if someone says to me, "Well, Han is a great pilot because he's a smuggler," then I'm not really caring about that. It's not necessarily an inevitable connection to be made.

    Then you get the lovely "Well, in the canon book..." fluff that no one actually gives a shit about. There are companion books to the sequel trilogy that explain many other details, too. But no one ever references those because "DISNEY SUCKS" and whatever. In fact, the books offer a much more well-rounded explanation of certain details, including Rey's characterizations and whatnot. But either way, whether it's the Original Trilogy or the Sequel Trilogy, the movies should be able to explain themselves. So, that evidence should be disregarded altogether.

    I'm not defending the Sequel Trilogy too much here. There's no doubt there are massive holes and plot points that make no sense, sloppy characterizations, etc. But these "arguments" from those that think the Original Trilogy is so pure are laughable at best. At the end of the day, all of the movies have certain flaws. They're not perfect. And anyone who says "Mary Sue" in any kind of context is annoying and attaches themselves to too much internet groupthink material.

  5. It's a very competent record, of course. But it feels like I keep waiting for something that never actually happens. On a lot of the songs. Well, except 7empest, which is just in full gear the whole time. But songs like Invincible and Culling Voices feel like they should have something more to them. It feels like quite a meditative record, which is fine. And it's quite good in places. But it doesn't jump out at me as many times as I would like.

  6. Just saw Neko Case last week. Now I'm looking to go and see Screaming Females and then Jade Bird around the end of the year. Not much in between yet, but we'll have to see what comes up.

  7. Love it. A lot of the tracks are just buttery smooth and I was glad to hear a little bit of that Bubblin flavour at the end of Winners Circle. Just a smooth as fuck, 40-minute, summer vibes album, which is perfect coming from .Paak. And I really enjoyed Oxnard. But this just seems more concise and flavourful.

    is Shiny & Oh So Bright Volume 2 even still gonna happen, considering how poorly Volume 1 sold?

    Did their records before the reunion sell that well at all? I don't know the numbers. But I'd be surprised if Monuments or Oceania sold extremely well.

    I've been listening to this record a lot lately. It's one of my favorites of last year.

    The production is phenomenal, I feel like I'm in the same room as the amplifiers. Has anyone seen them? I was hesitant without Tipton and Downing but now I think I'd go

    Go. I saw them last year and was floored. Halford honestly sounds ridiculously good for his age and Faulkner is electrifying.

    I wouldn't want to see them live, just a pop band with a gimmick, honestly if McFly wore make up would that make them a metal band? Ghost aren't heavy, the singers voice is not distinctive but yeah they do have some cool outfits to take everyones attention away from the fact the music isn't any good

    It's fine if you don't like them, but I'm not sure what being heavy has to do with anything. Nothing wrong with them being poppy either. Forge makes his songs catchy on purpose.

    Curious to hear what everyone's top 10 Ghost songs are. My girlfriend and I compared our lists the other day, and while we both sort of rank the albums the same, our song picks were radically different from one another. So what would you rank as your top ten?

     

    My list:
    1. Square Hammer
    2. Dance Macabre
    3. Ritual
    4. He Is
    5. Elizabeth
    6. Cirice
    7. See The Light
    8. Year Zero

    2. Faith

    3. Square Hammer
