Gen 1 2011, 2:46 di stokesy220On the sound advice of TheDarkOrb, I'm going to archive my favorites and most listened of 2010.
Because I've been computer-less for a majority of 2010 my main listening has happened on my PSP but because this year has been a great year for music I remember most of the new stuff i have enjoyed this year.
The album i've most enjoyed this year would defiantly be Slash's self titled album. I bought it on the recommendation of a friend, the fact I think slash is one of the best guitarists in the world and he was doing exactly that on this record and that there was a special edition with a magazine detailing the album and the man behind the album. I couldn't be happier with this album as its quirky, in that its slash and a group of his friends making music and I love collaborations.
Slash - Slash
I then saw an interview with a guy called Sea Sick Steve on Top Gear and he played a little from one of his songs and it was great not my normal style but I enjoyed it so I looked him…

Ago 27 2010, 6:27 di KanixtantTue 22 Jun – Iron Maiden, Dream Theater
When a band like Iron Maiden comes to your town, it's a good enough reason to cancel all incoming and outgoing flights. It's just that monumental. It's just that epic. Seattle got a taste of that madness when the sextet brought "The Final Frontier World Tour" to the White River Amphitheater in June, promoting the band's 15th studio album among songs that spanned their impressive 30-year career.
For a show of this magnitude, the band got things right by using Gustav Holst's thundering "Mars, the Bringer of War" as the opening music. Red lights flickered from the skies to illuminate the stage, rigged up like the bridge of a space-faring battleship (keeping with the theme of The Final Frontier). Fitting as though "Mars" is, the intro might have stretched a tad too long - but when Adrian Smith struck the first notes of "The Wicker Man", all was forgiven and forgotten. …

Venue: Sleep Train Pavilion
Tour: The Final Frontier
I'll start out by saying that this was an exceptional concert. I'm not the biggest Iron Maiden fan and a big Dream Theater fan; so I was pretty undecided on going to this for a while. Iron Maiden are absolute legends and with the unfortunate passing of Dio, I knew that I had to see these guys at least once. And boy was I glad I did.
Dream Theater delivered the performance that I've come to expect from them. Precise and proficient. They didn't have their usual set ups with tons of cameras and screen projections, so it really boiled down to delivering a great sounding performance; which they definitely did. James' voice was quite decent that night. John Petrucci delivered some amazing solos. If I remember correctly, he had one in every song. Jordan was actually a little short on the solos this time around, probably due to their (relatively) shorter setlist. …
Giu 15 2010, 14:50 di sarsippius164I went to see Iron Maiden this past weekend in Houston, and I got to say that it was kind of disappointing. I didn't think Maiden looked like they were really into that night. The other times I've seen a show by them, they seemed like they were really into it.
The trip to the Woodlands Pavilion was marred with traffic jams and people trying to change lanes at a toll booth. That was above frustrating. Then there was a wreck, which had traffic backed up for more than a mile.
Once we got to the Pavilion, I was surprised to hear the opening of Dream Theater's opening song As I Am starting up. I figured they would start late. Every other concert I've ever been to did. So with this show starting up 5 minutes early, I was surprised. We wound up having to go all the way around to the main gate at the venue to get our tickets from Will Call. Then we stopped at the merch tent and got shirts.
By the time we got to our seats Dream Theater started their last song for the night Pull Me Under. …

I will try and be as critical as I can, but everyone knows I am Maiden obsessed, and thus will be biased.
I won the Iron Maiden Fan Club's FTTB competition, that is; first to the barrier. This meant Jack and I (and 118 others) were let into the venue 20 minutes before everyone else, to get right up the front of the general admission floor area. I was dead centre, next to my new found mate Elliot. I was a bit slow getting in so I don't get right on the barrier, just one hand (which you will soon see was ultimately my downfall) was holding on.
I was so excited to see Maiden; 4 hours of flights, 2 days of driving and countless sleepless nights all came down to one moment. This moment was right upon me. Except for one thing. Support bands. First up was Tainted. They were pretty terrible. Some death metal band. A terrible choice to support maiden. I can't say much more on the subject except that elliot shit his pants when the singer jumped off the stage right onto the security-step directly in front of him. …

Artist: Iron Maiden
Original Album: Killers
Last Monday of 2008, so I thought I'd get away with picking a Maiden track. I've got lots of ideas for next year's journals, but my list of stuff to listen to at the moment is nearly as long as my shopping list so I'm buying myself some time to better evaluate some new (to me) stuff. My journal publication routine has become fairly random over the last week or so, largely thanks to Xmas and New Year's, but come Thursday we'll have another chance to get back into the rhythm of journalising my every whim and thought. For one thing, I think I'll be moving the "NWOBHM Band of the Week" feature to Thursday or Friday to balance the week out a bit more rather than have everything packed into Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
More on the subject though, I think I've narrowed down my list of favourite Di'Anno era Maiden tracks to two. …

sablespecter's Album of the Year for 1981 (RDF: 91%)
Purchased along with NotB after seeing Maiden open for Scorpions at my first concert, I have never tired of this album after all these years, and never treated it with any less love than NotB despite my preference for Bruce Dickinson over Paul Di'anno. As Paul himself once described it a few years back in an interview with Jeb Wright over on Classic Rock Revisited (now unavailable), Bruce is the better singer of the two, but not when it comes to delivering the material of the first two albums.
There are two things that I can never get enough of with this album. One: the gritty, punk-in-the-dark-alley vocals of Paul - that get no better than on the title track selection of this day and on Wrathchild - but still manage to carry a good melody, as in Prodigal Son. And while everyone knows that Bruce has an awesome range and sustain, Paul could also deliver at times, too. …
