The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock - Page 28

First time... King Crimson's "Red" the second time though which now applies for all my King Crimson albums, "Lizard" more times. Uriah Heep two times at least, I have a weakness for their better tracks.

 

About Deep Purple Mark I, very different. Just so you know "April" comes close to the King Crimson sound from what I have heard on "In The Court Of The Crimson King" and "Red". Deep Purple Mark I sounds more balanced and less in overdrive compared to the Mark II line up. With Ian Gillian Deep Purple has a certain 'madness'. The mark I line up is quite likeable...

 

What is quit interesting is that I hear Bleus, Soul and Funk influences in the the pre 1970 and early seventies albums. (Jazz and Classical music have always been influential in my opinion.)  The wah wahs, manic drumming, break beats and cohesiveness somehow comfirm that for me in the various pre 1970 albums. This is cool.

Yeah, I'm curious too. I have Deep Purple In Rock, Fireball, Machine Head, Made In Japan and Stormbringer (mainly just for Soldier of Fortune), and wonder what their earlier albums sound like. By Deep Purple, you mean this album right? I should probably get it too ...

Indeed, "Deep Purple" by Deep Purple with a very interesting sound, 5 euros in the store. Back to Florence & The Machine...

Gave Uriah Heep's Demons and Wizards a sample on YouTube. Think it sounds interesting enough to go on my wish list. Lately been listening to the new Iron Maiden. It isn't bad, like the previous CD, but I find myself eventually going back to the classic 1980s albums. Wonder if the pattern will be the same for The Final Frontier.


What is it with people and the Demons & Wizards album. Its a good album but the worst album of the David Byron era (9 albums) and even the other eras have better albums.

I think it might be the Easy Livin hit song but its just the album people always say or the only one they know of/heard of and only one they ever bother with.Its grossly overrated.

For early Heep albums Salisbury,Look At Yourself and The Magicians Birthday and even the debut album Very Eavy Very Umble are all far superior.

 

Anyways for Uriah Heep.

The first 11 albums  1970 Very Eavy Very Umble -1977 Innocent Victim. All have a sound,vibe,style to them that is consistent.

Its with 1978's Fallen Angel that things started to change amd be more different that was 1978 Fallen Angel- 1991 Different World. Some good albums in that time just not really like the other albums though.

With 1995's Sea Of Light is when Heep started going back to their classic sound/style.

 

Some good early songs

As for Maiden only heard the new album once don't have an opinion yet.

My favorite Maiden album is 1995's The X Factor.

"Wake Up (Set Your Sights)" and "Born In A Trunk" are great tracks. I should check out the second and third Uriah Heep albums. If there is an album with all the BBC recordings, I will get it.

Deep Purple's first single 'Hush' 1968 (and I have just found out is a cover) is still my favourite Deep Purple track. In 1968 everyone was doing psychadelic.

Ha ha forgive me! I am new to Uriah Heep and it just seems many consider a decent album to start with. Anyway, thanks for recommending for albums to look into - shall definitely do that!

I wrote this in the Lets Talk Metal thread, but I think Final Frontier is crap. Only two above average songs and all songs drag on forever with rather uninteresting riffs and solos and sometimes annoying vocals (mother of mercy chorus pains my ears). My dad, who is not even a metalhead but an old leatherjacket rockabilly/rock&roller decades ago, noticed that this is not a very good album when I played it for him, he said it seems way too long and emotionless. Then I letted him to compare it to Maidens old legends and quality difference is quite huge in his opinion.

 

This is just my opinion, but I'd rather listen Hallowed Be Thy Name song 10 times on repeat than this album through and be much more satisfied and entertained. A dissapointment, especially since I bought Final Frontier blind...

 

 

 

*edit* Darnit, I want old forum codes back!

I know..... I just was ahhh not another Demons & Wizards they have WAY better early albums.

post #415 of 659

Yeah, well, I'm basically an optimist when it comes to old bands releasing new stuff. I normally find myself getting all excited about these new releases but after a while, I seem to stop listening to them and go back to the classic stuff. Don't think The Final Frontier is awful (loads of other stuff I find quite unlistenable), but I imagine I will return to their 80s albums soon. I was also excited about Steve Miller's new Bingo!, but after a month or so, went back to his debut album (my favorite of his albums).

 

Oddly, although I know many view The Number of the Beast to be Maiden's best album, I tend to reach out for either Powerslave or Seventh Son (ok, this one for sentimental reasons as it was my first proper Maiden album - I used to own it on vinyl).

I am quite optimistic too, especially I was just a week before on their gig where they promoted their new album. But when I bought it and gave it a proper listen, it was a slap on my face...

 

Oh, all those three are great albums, all of them equally legendary. Number Of The Beast just happens to be the more famous, probaply thanks to the controversial title and title song. *lol*

I am just listening to Emerson, Lake & Palmer début album. If I ever heard a good fusion of Progressive Rock with Jazz, Classical and Folk this is just too good to turn off. I guess everyone who heard this album before knows the percussion is astonishing. "Take A Pebble" just blew almost everything I heard on "Days Of Future Passed" out of the water. This is equal to the King Crimson début to say the least. (I was only planning on listening to one or two tracks, "Lucky Man" just started.) 

 

P.S. When it comes to buying albums I am terrible. I check out reviews and whatever information I can find. Sometimes it takes days...

Tarkus is my favorite ELP album. It's excellent prog rock.
