I agree with Muse post 'Black Holes'

However I can't get enough of 'Reapers'.

but Reaper just sounds like collection of snippets of songs Matt liked. like outro where it just sounds like Freedom by RATM.

When I listen to Reapers I'm not sure if I'm listening to Matt Bellamy have a midlife crisis or John Petrucci have a midlife crisis. Either way, it's the musical equivalent of buying a convertible and dumping your wife for your 20 year old secretary.

They are 2 different sounds and I enjoy both.

DLR. Ain't Talkin Bout Love. Panama. Unchained. Everybody Wants Some. Are standouts for me

Hagar. Poundcake. Top of the World. Humans Being. Dreams. Best of Both Worlds. 5150. Don't Tell Me What Love Can Do.

Those seem to be my thumbs up on my Van Halen Pandora Station when I'm working out.

I enjoy Sammy's voice filling earnest stadium rock anthems.

DLR era contain great raw classic songs especially 'Van Halen'. However, DLR seems to be channeling his inner "Yabba Dabba Do!" Swagger on other albums.

I guess that's where my favoritism comes from. During my formative music years i found my preference for big stadium filling anthems finding purchase with both U2 and Hagar era VH.

I just can't even talk about Van Hagar with a straight face when put alongside even the lesser-known old school VH tracks.

Oh, just thought of another: Christopher Owens.

When he was in Girls, holy crap so good.

Now? Meh.

I've got one that probably nobody but the Australians will recognise, and those three or four will probably not agree with the premise.

Augie March.

Their debut was sprawling, indulgent, magical. It was some kind of time capsule, I dunno, plugging back into all sort of points in the national culture. "Owen's Lament" is probably the greatest song by an Australian band this century.

Their second album was pretty good.

Their third album was alright, and spawned the massive hit single 'One Crowded Hour'. Then they went to shit. They turned into, well, pretty much Augie March became the template for the modern Triple Jay Indie Band; a bit twee, a bit cute, a bit poppy, albeit with a more literary bent than you'll get from the high school kids they play nowadays.

It killed them as a band, I am quite convinced. They broke up for six or seven years, and their return was greeted with a giant yawn.

Going back years, but the band Live. They were my first ever favourite band and I enjoyed Secret Samadhi and Throwing Copper immensely. I found Live particularly exciting and cryptically interesting lyrically. But they gradually declined with each album after that, culminating in an atrocious album that featured the most bland, generic pop-rock songs imaginable, with one song titled "(Love Shines) A Song for my Daughters about God". That album was the ultimate betrayal. I remain baffled at how the band that thrilled me so much as a young teen. evolved into something so viciously unpleasant.

Pretty much all those late nineties bands whose frontmen were blown away by Bono in 1987, ended up being dreadful. The caravan moves on.

Dream Theater. To the point to where I actively dislike the stuff I used to like by them.

As seen in this live performance.

This is interesting. I only know One Crowded Hour, didn't know they had stuff before that. thanks for sharing. For what it's worth I think that song, whilst not nearly the world-beating masterpiece it so wants to be and many fans have thrust upon it - is still miles ahead of the shit that gets eaten up on Triple J. It feels like there's something at stake in that song. Most of the JJJ hits don't feel anything.

Sunset Studies is an album worth checking out, no matter the band's reputation (ie. they were no live band).

One Crowded Hour is certainly vastly superior to any recent Triple J no. 1, ftr. It's just it's also, imo, the song that broke them (in a bad way).
