    Garbage thread

    (I know there's a thread on them already here, but I couldn't find it) They just announced the dates for their 20th Anniversary Tour in which they will play their debut album in its entirety plus B sides. This is a must see for me. This is my second most anticipated tour of the year after Madonna of course. To add to the excitement the opener on the US leg Is Torres. I'm a huge fan of her new album Sprinter. She sounds a bit like PJ Harvey.

    New Album Means New Tour

    She shouldn't cut certain songs out, but I think it's okay to replace one song with another. The show should be the same length and number of songs on each date so people don't feel ripped off. But there are some songs that were bigger hits in certain countries that fans there expect to hear since as Crazy for You in the Philippines. Prior to Rebel Heart, I constantly read in forums that she should change the set list from night to night since she has so many hits. Now she has done that. As a fan changing the set list makes it more exciting to follow the tour online to find out what new songs she might do.

    New Album Means New Tour

    I don't think people are complaining about how her setlists are now, with a mix of hits and newer songs. I am just saying I don't want her to change to how the set lists of a lot of older artist are where they do mostly the really big hits and only 3 new songs. In fact, if you go to forums dedicated to other older artists such as Duran Duran, many fans complain they do the same hits on every tour, and why can't they ocassionally do some more rare tracks. As I said, a predominantly Hits tour appeals to causal fans who will only see an artist once, but what about super fans that go to every tour?

    New Album Means New Tour

    If she only did 3 new songs, she would be repeating too many of the same songs, and each tour would be too much the same. You would be irritated if you only went to a U2 show once and they didn't do all their hits. But what if you went to them on every tour, you would be bored hearing the same songs over and over again. Actually on their current tour, they are doing a lot of lesser known songs to fight against the boredom factor since they tour a lot.

    New Album Means New Tour

    I personally like something in the middle. Updated somewhat, not exactly the same as the album version, but not totally reinvented to make it unrecognizable. Songs such as LAV and Material Girl on RHT are examples of that middle ground.

    Bono: "Music is too girly!"

    Some of the best current guitar based rock music is actually made by women fronted bands. So the term girly music is just insulting. Women can rock just as hard as any guy! Has Bono ever heard of Wolf Alice? They are probably the biggest rock band in the U.K. and fronted by a female.

    Australia legalizes marriage equality!

    From what I understand (the Australians here can correct me if I'm wrong), the Australian Constitution does not have the same Bill of Rights, guarantees of individual freedom and equal protection of the laws as the US Constitution does. Therefore that makes it much more difficult if not impossible to challenge the gay marriage ban in the Supreme Court as was done in the US. If in the US we had to rely on our legislators to approve of gay marriage, we wouldn't have it either!

    The Killers!

    Anyone here a fan? They have a new single out called the Man and are releasing a new album soon! Brandon is so sexy! The new song is really good!

    Beth Ditto

    Is anyone here a fan? She is the former Gossip singer. Her new album Fake Sugar is out and it's great! She did a dance EP a few years ago, but the new album is more eclectic, with a mix of rock, punk, blues, ballads as well as dance. It fits her voice better than pure electronica! I'm so in love with this album!
  10. Brilliant post! Finally, someone who gets it! But some people just want to stay frozen in time apparently. I guess they miss being young!

    Paramore

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned their new album here. They have abandoned the grungy guitars and gone full on 80's synth pop with their new album. It reminds me of No Doubt and Blondie! I like it a lot though I wasn't that big on their older music. Definitely worth a listen!
  12. Yes, but Rebel Heart contained new music that wasn't previously released so I can see why the design might encourage you to buy the physical over the digital. But why do people want to buy a box set or a reissue of something that they already have in a physical format just because of new artwork? It doesn't make sense to me. Seems like a waste of money. Some people always buy physical because of the better sound quality not because of the artwork. In fact, I've read comments from fans of other artists that they will only buy cd's and vinyl and not digital for that reason. They get mad when artists only release for example singles on digital for that reason.
  13. So people would buy something full of songs they already have like a box set or reissued older albums just because they love the cover artwork? I'm not like that, and it makes zero sense to me. So I can see why it doesn't make sense to Madonna either. I like Bjork, but I had no interest in buying her insanely overpriced box set full of stuff I already had. Are they really that many collectors with so much excess money to spend on music they already own? That just seems like a waste of money to me.
  14. Or maybe people aren't interested in concert dvd's and blu Rays in general because you can watch them on you tube and other streaming services. I know plenty of people who don't even own a DVD or blu ray player so how would they even watch this? What are the sales figures of concert dvd's for other artists who have big hits and sell more albums like Beyoncé? I'm sure those have declined as well.

    Goldfrapp - Silver Eye

    I second that! Allison was really funny and friendly. She thanked everyone who came a long way to see her. How did she know? Lol There was this girl filming with her iPad Pro and Allison joked are you doing your homework with that! The venue had great sound and the crowd was very friendly. I got really close and no one pushed me out of the way. This tall guy even let me stand in front of him so I could see better. Here's set list. http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/goldfrapp/2017/brooklyn-steel-brooklyn-ny-6be61276.html

    Lol I saw them on Wednesday. She is an incredible performer. I took the train up from DC and it was totally worth it!

    New Tori Amos thread

    Tori just announced she is releasing a new album called Native Invader in September. She also announced tour dates for the UK and Europe.

    M's live vocals.

    I think vocal lessons are a bit overrated. I know you can improve somewhat, but your voice is what it is for the most part. She can't win. If she doesn't take lessons, she is lazy. If she does, people complain it ruins the natural tone of her voice and she is trying too hard.

    M's live vocals.

    Exactly! I don't understand when people are talking about her belting. She has never been a belter. It's odd people are now praising her 80's vocals because at the time everyone was criticizing them as sounding like Miny Mouse on helium even those who liked her songs. Now that is the golden age? As far as the inconsistency of her vocals you have to keep in mind also she tours a lot. It is a lot of wear and tear on your voice. Tori Amos whom I also love has the same issue.

    Goldfrapp - Silver Eye

    In love with this album! There's not one bad song! Can Madonna work with the producers of this album? On this one, they brought in outside collaborators.

    Goldfrapp - Silver Eye

    Can't wait for this album. I'm excited about their return to electro dance. Tales of Us was not for me.

    Clash of Generations

    I don't think it's that the talent that has declined. There are still many talented younger artists. It's just that they don't achieve mainstream success, sell millions of records or get played on the radio anymore. It's more the nature of the music business and marketing has changed, not the actual talent of individuals. If you search outside of the mainstream there are still many great bands and artists.
  23. Lol! She totally must read this forum with everyone complaining about the delay!

    Dreamcar(No Doubt w/oGwen) Kill For Candy

    Great song! I really like it!
  25. I thought they said previously it would be released as part of a larger project, whatever that means. Maybe they have to finish the rest of the project. It would be nice if they released it with an EP of covers such as If I Had a Hammer and Behind the Bars!
