Ah yes, Brau didn't take too kindly to his early departure from the game and he insulted voters in general as he perceived everything else as merely "white guys with guitars" while his compilation was not.

Gotta love that forum drama.

Glad you know this part of the world exists then. It seems to me that for all of your comments about people needing to listen to more than "white guys with guitars", the music you promote is largely either from the US or the UK. I may not listen to your beloved African American soul singers, but I think I've got a pretty good geographic spread, with plenty of bands in my collection from the Scandinavian countries, Israel, the Benelux countries, and New Zealand. I've even got awesome stuff from Bahrain, Tuva, Uganda, and Indonesia. I'd especially like more music from the former Soviet republics in Central Asia but that stuff is not easy to find.
Yes, each country has it's own indigenous music. Some of it is wonderful.

But rock & roll is American.

in-fact, I reprimanded the forum for having a "white cock rock" centric view of all popular music. Entire lists had nothing from the R&B, soul, funk, or Blues genre. Then there were the females. Yes, the lovely females. Completely ignored.

I pointed it out. People got pissed. Told me to piss off. We want guitars.

Things have changed a bit since then, thankfully.

All that said, if GG, Ax and myself were in the same room, playing songs for one another, it would be glorious. LOUD, and glorious. There's only so much you can do with words. As Frank Zappa said "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture."

We need the vibrations.

A boring post on topic, but what the hell.

Metallica hasn't done much of anything for me since Ride the Lightning. Love Whiplash. Master of Puppets had the writing on the wall already, but it got them media respect for whatever reason. And 'Metallica' with Enter Sandman rendered them 'Classic Rock' radio worthy. There are numerous metal bands more relevant in the last 20 years. Their new release will no doubt be the same as the last few, utter crap.

Coldplay have only one song I can even listen to, "Speed of Sound". Chris Martin really bugs me. This release will have no lasting impact at all.

Of course, this is just my opinion. I could be wrong

*Reads through thread*

Errrrrr...'kay...

As for the actual topic (and what vastly different bands to put up against each other), let's see...Metallica, I know that their last album was NOT well-received by any stretch of the imagination, so if they want to sell well again they'll have to pull out something big next time around. I don't see a big comeback from them being too likely, though.

And Coldplay, they get lots of airplay and praise from critics and such, but I also know they've gotten some backlash from the public in recent years, too (I'm apparently in a minority here-I personally rather like them, myself. Only heard one album of theirs in full (Parachutes), but I like that one, as well as the other songs I've heard from them *Shrugs*. It's weird, I remember a time when they were pretty popular on this board). Yet I still see them having more success than Metallica. Whether or not it'll be their Joshua Tree or whatever (I thought that comparison had already been done with their last album?), eh, who knows? I don't really care about that aspect of it all, anyway.

Don't know Metallica well enough to comment. Coldplay IMO are now in a position where they badly need to lift their game or reinvent themselves or do anything to move away from the dead end of X&Y. Last time around they had enough goodwill to get some good reviews, but I don't think they can get away with doing the same thing over and over any longer. Personally I'd like them to succeed but I'm just sceptical whether they have the chops or ability to make that leap forward.

What blows my mind is that Brian Eno agreed to work with Coldplay. I guess he sees something in them that I don't...or maybe he needs some quick bucks? Dunno...

You know what would have been a dream come true for me? Eno producing Joy Division/New Order....

Well, 1 non-idiotic statement out of 4 ain't bad.

I don't think Metallica has a choice on this next one. It has be good or they're toast. Or will live on only as a greatest hits touring act (not that they'd be a bad one, they still put on a helluva show). St. Anger pretty much put all the nails in the coffin. All they need is something mediocre to tap them all down flush.

I'll give it to Coldplay they know what's at stake, having Eno behind them has improved their odds, they need this album to be great.

Mark my words haters, Coldplay will have a hit album whether it will have critical approval it's another thing
