As far as Zep rehash goes, it's really not bad.

the songs are strong

Randall Jarrell (dandydonweiner), Monday, 9 October 2017 23:48 (two years ago) link

I'm curious.

Hopefully they will make Frankenmuth, MI known for something other than Christmas stores and beer gardens.

Never heard if them before saw them in the new release section. It's a pretty fun album although not necessarily my thing I'd listen to it again though.

A few months back, one of my college friends tried to recommend them to me so I went and streamed a couple tracks. Told him I thought they were pretty lame, and then he countered with "Well, Matt Drudge likes them."

I was genuinely hoping that the rockism thread would culminate in being consumed by a protracted discussion of Greta Van Fleet.

At this point it’s more like a prolapsed discussion

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 05:18 (one year ago) link

Just listened to all of Anthem.... Not sure I'd pay for it but I enjoyed a bunch of it. It's the kind of AOR fast food I have a soft spot for. There was more early Rush/Heart pomp in there than I expected. I didn't like "You're the One" or "Anthem" that much but I like "The Cold Wind" and "Watching Over". Guy's high register actually seems impressive to me. The screeching on "When the Curtain Falls" seems like the least interesting thing he does.

The nexus of the crisis (Sund4r), Wednesday, 24 October 2018 12:50 (one year ago) link

ok, i'm gonna try porting my gvf commentary over from the rockism thread:

"engagement with the details of the music can miss the wood for the trees and a review like that has its own use and value. there is no clear distinction between aesthetics and social commentary, its like asking to take the politics out of an issue or insisting we can just rationally debate the facts

― ogmor"

ogmor very much otm, i have no use for this "what about the MUSIC maaaan" nonsense.

"people have made the point that lots of kids still go a Zep phase, so it makes sense that there's a band like GVF - do kids still go through a Doors phase? it would be cool if there was a successful band that's like GVF but for the Doors instead of Zep, with a singer who looks like Bruce McCulloch in that Kids In The Hall skit

― soref"

my "zep phase" turned thirty this year

weren't the cult the successful band that was like the doors? or are they different?

dub pilates (rushomancy), Wednesday, 24 October 2018 13:30 (one year ago) link

there is no clear distinction between aesthetics and social commentary

Yeah, I don't agree with this at all, or at least I don't think it's any truer than saying "there is no clear distinction between aesthetics and physics".

The nexus of the crisis (Sund4r), Wednesday, 24 October 2018 13:45 (one year ago) link

of all the complaining i have seen about this band, why is no one complaining about their name?! i guess there is an abundance of wrong to complain about and still i am stuck on their band name.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:09 (one year ago) link

i had a period where i literally listened to led zeppelin and nothing else for months when i was 13.

i still love led zeppelin, but that is a zep phase.

voodoo chili, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:13 (one year ago) link

I mentioned this on the other thread, but in 7th grade I tried to do a history fair project about Led Zeppelin. That's a Zep phase.

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:15 (one year ago) link

Like when you tune in to Get the Led Out every time it's on even though 95% of the songs they play are on the 3-CD remasters box you own (prior to actually owning all of the albums).

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:16 (one year ago) link

Zep phase is like flu season, reliably hits me about once a year.

dinnerboat, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:25 (one year ago) link

I had two weeks in September where I just played either Achilles or In My Time of Dying on repeat for my entire commute.

Fedora Dostoyevsky (man alive), Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:28 (one year ago) link

My Zep phase was devouring Zep 1-4 and Houses of the Holy on an almost daily basis for most of my teenage life. Then I realized in my mid-thirties that Physical Graffiti is their best album and half of Presence is amazing. I rarely listen to the others nowadays but that's a result of overexposure, it's still some of the greatest rock and roll ever put down imo

Paul Ponzi, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:30 (one year ago) link

I'm amazed at how much attention these guys are getting. The negative Pitchfork review is a top trending item on Twitter.

dinnerboat, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:32 (one year ago) link

as much as I wanna shit on these guys I know deep down that if a bunch of Jonas-brother lookalikes went all out to imitate Yes I'd probably love 'em unconditionally even if they weren't very good

frogbs, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 14:57 (one year ago) link

That Icelandic prog orchestra featuring Jon Anderson is pretty much better than Yes anyway

imago, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 15:04 (one year ago) link

Admittedly that is playing the literal songs of Yes, which isn't what gore talking about. Prog is full of dreadful copyists

imago, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 15:05 (one year ago) link

well yeah but most of those dudes are in their 30s or 40s and therefore have had plenty of time to come up with their own ideas. if it was a group of kids fresh out of high school who wound up sounding like Starcastle I'd be a lot more forgiving.

frogbs, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 15:08 (one year ago) link

oh yeah true

imago, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 15:08 (one year ago) link

If there was a teen band that played Yes-like prog I think I would be OK with that, since prog is still innately cult. Of course, if there were teens that could play Yes then Adrian Belew or Jeff Beck would hire them for their bands.

But anyway, teen Zep? No thanks. I recently cancelled satellite radio, so have been listening to the local stuff, and I came across these guys all the time starting a few months back, and each time I thought, wtf is this shit, and turned the channel. It was only after the 5th or so stumble-upon that I looked them up and saw that they were selling out sizable venues. I didn't know where the fuck they came from but suddenly they were everywhere and, in the words of a friend, I smelled a rat.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 15:10 (one year ago) link

as was mentioned elsewhere iirc the problem w/a lot of Zeppelin copycats or bands influenced by Zeppelin is they only ever adhere to the most obvious aspects of the Zeppelin sound, and the aspects that are the easiest to ape. I guess one on hand you have GVF and Kingdom Come, and on another hand you have The White Stripes, who obviously had some Zeppelin influences all over the place but absorbed them into their own sound.

omar little, Wednesday, 24 October 2018 15:26 (one year ago) link

starcastle is one of the most underrated 70s american prog bands (along with like ETHOS, LIFT, YEZDA URFA, and CATHEDRAL). so glad overplay hasn't worn out their charm

weren't the cult the successful band that was like the doors? or are they different?

Astbury wanted to be Jim Morrison (and actully got to be him with that Doors reunion), which eventually was counterbalanced by his band wanting to be AC/DC.

veronica moser, Monday, 9 December 2019 20:21 (one month ago) link

It may surprise you to know that 13 year-old kids are still discovering classic rock warhorses even in 2019. Which isn't meant to support these guys or their approach, but it's not exactly shocking to me to see that bands kids in their early teens are still doing that thing where they get super excited about the classic rock canon. Where they go after that phase is what seems to be more interesting.

Οὖτις, Monday, 9 December 2019 20:32 (one month ago) link

man, that Paul Green School of Rock shit is gross… it's one thing if kids discover it for themselves, but it seems like that guy is, based on a fee videos I saw, having them learn "One More Red Nightmare" like its "Autumn Leaves" or "caravan." Maybe I'm a jerk, but I'm glad that pedagogy had nothing with my wanting to learn to how to play…I guess we're resigned to having rock and roll having reached such a point where its something parents and teachers hand down to 'em, or I guess this happened 10-15 years ago… my 3 year old pounds the Beatles and the Rutles, but when she's past 10 or whatever, and 1000 Gecs turns out to be a foundational recording for her crowd, I hope I'm not an asshole about it…
