Best Albums of 2011
(Markus Reuter, Pat Mastelotto, Tony Levon - Stick Men)
My Top 3 albums of 2011
3. Hard Core Will never Die But You Will - Mogwai
This group mostly does instrumentals, mostly in the 6-8 minute range. Not a lot of solos but just very tight progressions
2. Grace for Drowning - Steven Wilson
As a double album, it's breadth and complexity are immense. It has strings and horns and definately ventures in jazz. Epic and wonderful.
1. Absalom - Stick Men
This is only a 30 EP that was sold at recent shows in NYC in December (but we geeks can always find stuff on the Internet, because other nerds will post it.) The full album will be released in 2012 i suppose. Stunning. It features Tony Levin on Stick, Markus Reuter on touch guitar and Pat Mastelotto on drums. They are a power trio in the vein of Rush. The music is very different but for a trio, is unbelevable. Vibrant and always taking strange turns, these six songs are amazing.
All else is cool. Just a few days til i see the Fambly!
