post #1516 of 4536

Ian,

 

Thank you so much for sharing. I am a huge DS/MK fan. Totally thrilled someone I 'know' is going for an interview. Stoked!

 

Regards,

wc.

 

PS please post link assuming you publish your interview!

Awesome. Love it.

this thread's moved on and it's probably been said already but listening to the piano fortes is like looking at the world through (sepia?) tinted glasses. otoh the fi-ba-ss is like audio hyperrealism.

I just got a gig interviewing David Knopfler, co-founder of Dire Straits, can't wait!

And it just so happens Dire straits sounds great through the PF's! (OK, tenuous I know, but I am stoked as Dire Straits are one of my all time favourite bands!)

 

Seriously trying to dig my old albums to try out PF IX with DS!!

...the colors are sooo pretty!

Just wondering that mostly the pictures are from PF IX.

 

Would there be pictures from PF X - CC or X-G to share?

 

Thanks

This one, I feel, is yet another job more suitable for the FI-BA-SS / FI-BA-SB: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YciBfhO1JZU

(Ah, to think this 19-year-old young lad had a free ticket for this performance given to him by his girlfriend [who couldn't attend] at the time. The truth is I wasn't really interested in the gig and completely forgot about it! Turns out the concert was later released [on vinyl], heard this one track and kicked myself)

(Note to lescanadiens: Sorry, but I really do find most prog rock quite unpalatable… but then again, I find A LOT of music pretty unpalatable, anyway!  ;)  )

 

----------------------

 

woodcans, FWIW, "Back in Black" is the only AC/DC album I like / have kept (don't like the whole album, but do enjoy 3-4 tracks quite a bit)

 

Ian, not into DS myself but love Brothers in Arms (the track, not the [whole] album) and Private Investigations.

Had I a pair, I would get to work.

To my ears, there is more crystalline-like clarity and vividness than implied by sepia. For me, a visual correlation is more like this. Rose-tinted glasses, maybe.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

I most definitely agree (bolded text).

I know you do, which actually means even more to me. smily_headphones1.gif Thanks!

This track is rendered beautifully by the FI-BA-SS (haven't listened yet with the PF's). Music, I know (most) prog isn't your thing, but I think you might like it. Very nice visuals, too.

Not too sure Muse would be regarded as prog, tbh — I think they refer to that genre as "alternative" (just like they do with the music of Radiohead & Placebo), whatever that means, but you can tell Muse (and Radiohead) have listened to, an quite possibly been influenced by, (good) so-called prog bands.

The only two albums my Muse I really like—love, in fact—are "Origin of Symmetry" (OoS) and the follow up to that, "Absolution"; I think the former is pretty close to a masterpiece and is my favourite Muse album, love every single track on it even when the recording/mastering ain't that great (I believe it was recorded live in studio), but it captures a pretty unique vibe, raw power, intensity, with quite a bit of inspiration (the muse!) that was lost, in my view, after "Absolution".

I think both of the above albums are rendered better by the FI-BA-SS — this, FWIW, is possibly my all-time favourite Muse track (from the OoS album): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiHUKVoYbdc

(BTW, I do like Unintended, but prefer the studio version of it)

I liked the paranoia and rawness of OoS (Love how unhinged things get on "Darkshines"), Absolution is really polished but kinda schmaltzy lyrically. I mean Matt is no poet or anything, but that album is a bit cringe inducing at times, though, thankfully, nowhere near as bad as modern day Muse. From Black Holes onwards, I refuse to acknowledge that any of those albums exist

Since you seem to be quite interested in the FI-BA-SS (or its 'budget' sibling, the FI-BA-SB) and you also like OoS, you may like this track where the FADs do a pretty impressive job; the lyrics are based on a true story — this music is quite different from that found OsS, but not completely…well... er…this is an album I regard as a true masterpiece in the full sense of the word (released 13 years before OoS, with much more meaningful and mature lyrics, btw): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqBaDg7kj3M
