God help me but hanging out with my father-in-law for a couple extended road trips is getting me sucked into country music a little.

Currently jamming out on both albums from this Alberta native.



And yes, I first took notice of her because she's pretty easy on the eyes.

Another musical realization--unless Peter Gabriel or Geddy Lee are singing it, I actually don't like much prog rock.

I can get down to a good Yes jam now and again.

Y'know I was thinking that right when I posted it--I'm honestly not terribly familiar with a lot of their pre-pop stuff. But I downloaded this playlist last night and I'm figuring out that there's a far finer line between prog and jam bands than I thought...and I HATE jam bands. One song was a Emerson, Lake, and Palmer number that I simply could not get through.

Should also note that I like "In the Court of the Crimson King" but most of KC's other stuff kinda eludes me.

I'll go through periods where his voice has gotten to me and I can't listen to Third Eye Blind, but then I'll go on a kick and get addicted to a different song from the self-titled album because there are so damn many. Right now:

I've loved and lived with the source material: early Rush, Zep etc. These guys do it well, but I can't get over how unoriginal this sounds. Even the singer sounds like he's doing a bad Plant impression. I get that no one is doing this style of rock anymore so they're unique in that regard, but whenever I pop this on I always feel like I'd rather listen to In Through the Out Door an 8 millionth time.

I think that's fair, and they definitely give off a VERY strong Zep vibe, which is ironic because Zep has fallen a bit in my little rock pantheon. I guess maybe this sounds like LZ if they were still around and in their prime, so I suppose that's why it appeals to me. And I've gotten a little worn down by all the synth-laden stuff I've been listening to for a while so this is a refreshing change.

Internet says that if I like GVF, then I might like The Struts. Guess we'll see...
