The Music / Re: New live album coming...
« Last post by parkervb on Today at 01:52 PM »
When the new live album comes out, I will certainly buy it. I do have a  question though. With all of the quality MMJ recordings for free on Archive.org, what is the general reason everyone is so excited about an official release? Is it to see what they chose to release and see if it matches up to expectations, release of versions not readily available online, or simply the tangible greatness of holding, looking at, and playing new MMJ vinyl? I mean, after all, most of the music is out there and available for free downloads.

well if it's the Beacon shows, then the question is moot really.

But, I think the band will ensure the mix meets their expectations and that it will far exceed the aud recordings that are out there (as good as many of them are). I also feel the selections they make will reflect their feelings about who they are as a band at that time and place and to me, that's also interesting.

I just got a Pearl Jam live record where the audio had been out for years (Soldier Field 1995) and it was FAR better than the decent radio rips that had been out there. It showed me how much impact professional mixing can have, esp on a live record.

The Music / Re: Aluminum Park - what is it about?
« Last post by sillyboob on Today at 12:51 PM »
I was looking online, and on songmeanings.com I found this:
"In case anyone is still stumped, I believe the song is a message to the listener. The aluminum park represents a place you may have played as child, and he's urging you now, as an adult, to get out in the world and play. Play your own game, make your own way, and enjoy it like you did when you were a kid." - firsttimecaller

I truly believe many songs are just words put to melody with a veiled theme. If I were to guess it is about a roller coaster park. Kinda like trying to find meaning in a crazy dream.

The Tapings / Re: 12/30/17 1st Bank Center - Broomfield, CO

guys and gals....that version of THE DARK is so face meltingly intense and energetic..oh my good god...that whole thing just blew my mind in person....being able to scream along with Jim on the "nobody ever screams anymore" part just....my girlfriend was just laughing at me in wonder at how into it I was.

THE DARK is, and always will be, one of those Jacket standards right next to Mahgeetah in my mind, as big of a hit.

 IT'S ABOUT TWILIGHT NOW is right in that category, too (very very very fucking sad they didnt bust it out for NYE).

In the 80's Rhino Records released a series of albums called Nuggets. they were mostly one hit garage band wonders. The Dark, and It's About Twilight, have ALWAYS sounded like 60's garage  rock to me. I know they are both nuggets!

Damn Rincon that was fucking perfect that's EXACTLY how to describe those two along with Evelyn
