Recommended Posts

I'm telling my buddy about Shakra, he's just basically going to buy one of their Cd's to check them out, kind of like a blind shot, what would your recommendations be on the most CONSISTENT!! of all their albums? I kind of like the new one, but what would you guys tell him, if you were going to buy just one of their discs? were would you start?

They are one of those bands that for the most part I like 3 to 4 songs on most of the releases. It makes for a nice comp by the band but not great for buying their releases.

 

Completely disagree. They usually have 3 or 4 absolutely killer tunes per release that would have been radio hits back in the day and the rest of the tracks are for the most part excellent compliments to those 3 or 4 gems.

 

As for the topic at hand...for me, tough call. I had never given Shakra a try until I picked up Back On Track on a whim. I loved it so I started tracking down the the other releases. So that is how I started and they have very quickly become one of my favorite bands ever. That said, I think he could get the very first CD and enjoy it just as much and then make his way forward with the 2nd, 3rd, etc. and see the progression of the band, the change in lead singers, etc.

I also prefer Mr. Wiedmer over the other two singers.

 

You can tell the difference?! :lol:

 

'Power ride' for sure.

Stranger is also a top Shakra tune for me.

Strangers one of those rat bastard that at one point was stuck in my head for something like 6 straight days, I shit you not, there was a point around Xmas about 3 years ago that i honestly could not do anything to get Stranger out of my head, I mean don't get me wrong, i can think of about any other song that would be worse to have in my head, i just hate having songs stuck in my head then to have it stuck in my head some absurd amount of time, same with the song Mystery, listen to this, I heard the song Devil Inside Of Me a total of 1 time, had a dream, and it was playing in my dream, and the person whoever it was in my dream was asking me, who sings this song(forget the fact it's not playing from anywhere just openly playing in life lol) but I could not figure the fuck out who was singing this song and i just kept thinking this fucking song rocks so hard, i eventually figured it out like later on that day when I was awake, but i think this is some kind of sign that Shakra are like Cerebral musicians, in my 34 years on earth and all the music ive heard in my life, this is the one and only time anything like this has ever happened to me, I tried not to make to big a deal about it, but it tells me something,

Hands down favorite here too. It's one of those tunes that sounds better the louder you play it. "Anybody Out There" is a close 2nd.

 

I didn't discover Shakra until last year. I started with "Everest" and was glad I did. After listening to 'em all, I think it's by far their best. In fact, it was only the Mark Fox stuff that I liked. I didn't get into the older stuff. And aside from "Crazy", I didn't care for anything on the new CD.

Really!! You really dont like anything off that 1st disc? so you basically really don't get into shakra, your more of a Fox fan, would that be safe to say? i believe his disc is coming out soon, if it's not already out, no i like the band myself.

I agree with Jeff. Great band. Start with Rising. Then get them all :)

Spinning Everest right now. It starts out so strong with "Ashes to Ashes" and then quickly falls in a rut. Is it me or are Mark Fox's lyrics just horrendus?

 

Anyway my favs are the early stuff with Pete Wiedmer and the first one with Fox "Rising" along with the new one "Back on Track". The others like "Everest", "Infected" and "Fall" all have their moments but they don't hold up on repeated listens when compared to what came before IMO.

There are a few good songs and none of them are bad but his lyrics are really bad like a 10 year old can write better IMO.

    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
    • That tis funny, and I would watch you pillage for hours but I can't play them type of games, maybe its the motor skills, shrug?
    • Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"   I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.   I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.  
    • It's coming out in February 2022 so your prediction might be a bit off
    • Well I'm a gamer but if I can't blast someones face off with a shotgun then I'm not interested....
