Testament's new offering The Brotherhood Of The Snake, is another quality release from the Bay Area's finest. Like Gillian Anderson they were amazing when they started out and are getting better with age

Eric Peterson just maybe the best rhythm guitarist in thrash metal, and Alex Skolnick well he's Alex f%~king Skolnick. Gene Hoglan's skins are savage as ever, his timing is off the chain as younger people maybe once said in a movie

And as for Chuck the world's most famous Pomo Indian he continues to be just a force of nature.

Pure thrash goodness

The Everybody Wants Some!! Soundtrack is well worth picking up, great mix for those of a certain vintage or even just putting together as a playlist as you likely have the tracks already

Problems with the downloads from Amazon and Itunes mean I've had to hold off buying it. Hopefully it will get sorted out soon, can't wait to give it a spin.

Fits well with the back catalogue prior to load. Moth into flame is the pick of the album for me. Really like the album.

That said I think I was the person that liked st. Anger.

Game of two halves for me (well three if you got the deluxe version and I did). Strong CD1 with a couple of fillers on CD2 then game back on for CD3.

Alice and Chains, Jar of flies on repeat lately. Short album, but every track is class.

No probs. My only gripe so far with it is that it's only nine songs.

I see Jamie Heaslip is listed in the names thanked by The National on the sleeve of their latest album, "Sleep well Beast".

Also, the latest offering by Conor Oberst (aka Bright Eyes) is called 'Salutations' and it is fantastic.

The War on Drugs new one is out, and picks up from Lost in the Dream (which will be one of the top 10 albums of the decade when those lists are compiled in a few years).

I've been listening to, and greatly enjoying, both The National and TWOD albums you mention above.

The National's new one is fantastic, lead single has a touch of The Who's Eminence Front

Could never understand the love for the National. The singer's a real bore too. Maybe I'm just far too old.
