Streaming taking over the music industry

Recommended Posts

The Regular Show for me.

Always on around midnight, so I have a little chuckle before I fall asleep...

Regular Show is awesome! Just yesterday my brother told me they finished the show though, last episode aired on Monday. I haven't been watching for the past 8 or 9 months so have to catch up a little

You can always download the tv shows for free....I have been getting in the habit of downloading the entire season of a show and then watching it over several days which is the best way to watch anyway considering many shows continue the same story line/lines for the entire season...

 

Yep, I've got a few gigs worth of downloaded shows too - good luck me, to ever get around to watching any of them...

I started watching it to tease a couple of my kids who love it.

They are in bed when it's on so weren't up to date and I'd get up and start with "you should have seen the regular show last night..." and then start to make them jealous relaying what happened.

Gradually the moved from watching to tease them to watching because I liked the show.

Pops rules :)

One of the positives of getting older is that I won't have to deal with the whole streaming thing for too very long and I'm glad I was around when music was a physical product.

I just loathe the whole streaming thing.  Spotty bluetooth connections, annoying ads, randomly playing stuff I don't want to hear, having to fumble around trying to find specific stuff in my digital library while driving, compressed, low quality tin can sounds....Really not much good to say about it.

That might be true for new music and 99% of the population are fine with only streaming I'm sure cause all they want is the newest songs that are being played on the radio anyway. I am streaming music as well BUT not everything is available online. I'm talking older / obscure stuff or even artists' discographies that are on Spotify are sometimes incomplete. So I guess Spotify can cover most of the musical needs but not 100%, at least for me

so you can load a CD while driving??

I have never had Bluetooth cut out in the car. In my house Sonos operates over WiFi. Connection is instant and permanent. Not Bluetooth. 

Ads? Only if you are on a free platform

low quality? Spotify sounds incredible through my Sonos. Much better than CD and trust me I still have decent hifi gear - Denon, Arcam etc.

Not sure what u are on about mate ;)

We were cleaning out a house for a friend whose father died last week. Found a wind up gramophone . Has to be better than any of this digital music nonsense ?

    • New song 'Head Of The Snake'. Pretty sweet. “Brave Tin World” is yet another fantastic album where the band delivers a fine slice of cinematic/symphonic metal. Often compared to musical giants such as Within Temptation, Nemesea, and Delain, The Murder of My Sweet are Sweden’s significant answer to those revered Dutch acts. Musically, the band’s new album follows the path of their previous record, "Beth Out Of Hell", with a more straight-ahead songwriting approach, while still offering the symphonic and cinematic elements the band is now well-known for. "Brave Tin World" showcases a Nordic sound that the members of the band grew up listening to and lyrically takes on issues in tune with our modern day life. "It's a more relaxed and mature album,” says producer and drummer Daniel Flores. "We're currently in transition with our songwriting, trying to bring out our identity instead of our chops. Sonically, we've taken a step further too, concentrating on more details than before." Debuting with the first single, “Tin Soldiers” the band is truly stronger than ever. "The song seems like it's been growing in our heads for the past ten years. We just didn't know how to communicate it properly until now. It's sort of an adventure about a mature topic that is unfortunately still very much of an issue these days,” tells singer Angelica Rylin. With Angelica Rylin carrying the vocals with her smooth, powerful voice, the wall of sound supporting the vocals is provided by Christopher Vetter on guitar, Patrik Janson on bass, and Daniel Flores on drums and keyboards. It’s easy to close your eyes while listening to The Murder of My Sweet and imagine you are listening to a movie soundtrack. It has that musical film production value that makes movies feel bigger than life, but translated to music.  "This album has something we've never accomplished before,” concludes Daniel Flores. "It's a perfect balance between heavy and light and the immersion is so substantial no one will be able to deny it." THE MURDER OF MY SWEET’s aim is to create a distorted film noir vibe and experience by putting the wonder, sadness, humour and sheer zest of life into their music. By playing it to the point where the drama explodes, the music and the words become the utmost expression of the direct and ecstatic pure joy of being. THE MURDER OF MY SWEET have arrived again with an unforgettable thrill of a lifetime album. Whatever you do, don’t miss the show. Tracklist: 1. Tin Soldiers 2. My Religion 3. Head Of The Snake 4. Reasons To Live 5. Safe In The Shadows 6. Hit The Ground 7. Everyone Wins 8. Memento 9. Keeper Of The Flame 10. Worth Fighting For 11. Alchemy Of Sins Line-up Angelica Rylin - Vocals Daniel Flores - Keyboards, strings arrangements, backing vocals and Drums Christopher Vetter - Acoustic and electric guitars Patrik Janson - Bass    
    • Thank you very much '
    • This is an excellent album.  Nice mix of sounds.  Am really loving the retro tune "Let Me Dream".  Has a lot of Foreigner's "Waiting For a Girl Like You" in it, only more up-tempo.  There's a couple other bands in it, too, but I'm drawing a blank on who it sounds like.  Great song though.
    • Yeah but S'Cool Bus is  a rare one indeed...have a rip of it somewhere from years ago,,Law Of The Order is where I sat up and took notice 
    • Law of the order was their second album. S’cool Bus the first. Also recorded an album called alter ego but that was when they were called the sharks .   Forgotten this dropped today. Will be my listening the next few days.   
    • While it is a little higher pitched, that guitar solo reminds me more of classic Sabbath than anything Ozzy has done in his solo career. Hell, the whole song sounds like a more modernised version of 70s Sabbath. Me rikey.
    • Michael Voss has always been very hit and miss. Even on individual albums. Need to hear more.
    • That wasn't great at all,his voice sounds fine...but the lyrics are awful,even as a the tribute they are written for...sorry
    • Probably Dokken, Queensryche, Skid Row and Van Hagar. All band members are still alive, so it is technically possible.
    • Love these guys. Cirice is catchy as fuck.
