Hey guys, we recently had a discussion on the album AC/DC Live. Was wondering what studio album is your favorite? Would like to do a deep dive and do another episode on discussing the pinacle AC/DC album.

Do you known any artists whose magnum opus is a relatively unknown song or album? Why do you think the song or album hasn’t got much mainstream attention or praise? Was it because of their label? Or because the sound was too “experimental”?
As worded in the title. Sometimes I just wonder, does Taylor swift know that 1989 is gonna be the biggest album in her career? Is that what she’s aiming for as she’s writing and producing it? Does she know that the album after Red will be her biggest? Does Ed Sheeran know how well divide is gonna do before he released it? That it’s gonna be the most streamed album in Spotify history? Or drake with Scorpion? Adele with 21?
Debut albums probably don’t count, I assume artists like Lorde and Lana did not predict that their first album will be so huge, but they probably realized that’s their commercial peak after the eras
I’m not trying to take anything away from any other album of hers because they are all legendary, classic, unique and worthy of the praise they get. I know every word to every song. She’s never missed. Ever.
But there’s something special about ‘Blue Banisters.’
It’s haunting, raw, hypnotizing, optimistic, hopeful, romantic, confessional, whimsical and sweet. It’s like a lullaby for the soul.
Even with those descriptions, the feeling the album leaves me with is ineffable. It feels like I’m floating. Like Lana’s floating too. Like time is slowed down in the most comforting way.
I cannot get enough. I don’t understand how she continues to outdo herself without an ounce of pretentiousness or conformity. It’s like she’s tapped into something no one else is. She has been in a category all her own since the start. And she still has no peers.
Not a single fuckin skip.
Change my mind.
Carter 5, 3, and 2 ain't far behind tho.
Edit: Carter V deluxe is out this world as well. Tied wit iv. Life of Mr Carter the hardest song on earth
Edit 3: more to the story!! bruh I'm out.....
As u can tell I'm revisiting all of Wayne shit.
Edit 4: I take it back C5 deluxe is the greatest album on earth. C4 a close second. And eminem show in my top 3 albums ever. How this nigga drop a 30 song album wit no skips?!? 🐐
This is a somewhat sloppy list. But hopefully someone will find it useful.
Malmsteen is easily one of Power Metal's most influential precursors. Unfortunately, on many of his albums, there aren't very many Power Metal songs at all. Even more unfortunately, the albums which have the most Power Metal, are probably his least popular albums. "War to End All Wars" album, for example, has a production so bad, it's unbelievable.
I've made a few liberal decisions, but mostly I added a track if it was (a) fast and (b) had vocals.

So I have been trying to get a decent Yngwie malmsteen tone lately and have been struggling between it being to distorted or it being too "weak". I dont have enough money to buy the right gear that he uses so im making the tone with what I have. The guitar is a LTD M-200 and the amp is a Boss Katana 50 Mk-II, no pedals or anything, everything is coming straight from the amp. I would love opinions on it and maybe pointers to make it sound better . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMZMS2PMP8I
Change my mind.
I believe this album resumes everything from the start of their career and the moment they created The Act.
What i mean by that is that all the influences and the creative modus operandis are put togheter to create an album that show them at their peak.
Tracks like Chemical, Please Say No, shows maturity, and shows the band taking some risks trying different things, the band is experimenting without losing their core, the tracks are really different from what they usually do, but you can see that the tracks are made by them.
The Thread is their best track ever and probably the best metalcore track of the last decade in my opinion, is one of the heaviest tracks on the album and one of the more melodics either, with so many layers that it becomes an epic.
And with so many qualities i think that this album is underrated, i know TDWP is a big band in the metalcore community, but i got some feelings, some feelings as of late that this will be more of a cult album in the future.
Thats why i would reccomend everyone to listen to this album even if you don't like at first and maybe it will grow on you.
