The Offspring has a nice handful of great hits.

 

 

I used to be a huge fan when I was around 12-14. Looking back now I recognize they were more of a singles band than an album band, although I still enjoy Crash, Ixnay and Ignition for the most part.

 

 

Probably one of the few pop punk bands I ever got into, though that's probably because they were closer to Social Distortion, Bad Religion, The Descendants etc. than the likes of Green Day, Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, Sum 41.

Pretty incredible that the lead singer for Offspring has a PhD in molecular biology.

I didn't know that.

 

Dolph Lundgren has a degree in engineering, chemical I believe. He's not a singer, but he must still break you.

Listening to Queensrÿche's "Operation Mindcrime" for the first time in like 20 years.

 

Whaaaaaaaaaat?  Why haven't you listened to it since 20 years ago?


Great album, ignore the sequel album though

Just one of those things.  I haven't kept up with them since "Hear in the Now Frontier", but I was aware they came out with a sequel.  Had no desire to seek it out, but now I'll make sure to stay aware from it.

The vocalist comes from the Bryan Ferry/David Sylvian school of singing, but it's a good Summer song. Thanks for posting.

I watched a docu about Mick Ronson, who was the guitarist of David Bowie's The Spiders From Mars. It's quite amazing how a genius musician (he was practically the arranger/producer of Bowie in that period) like Ronson lived most of his life on the edge of poverty.

BRAVE is a fine, if dense and a little esoteric record, and certainly a departure from tbe "pop-y" HOLIDAYS IN EDEN. The next one, AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT, is great.
