I couldn't pass by the oppurtunity to mention Guthrie Govan again.

For the last week or 3 I've been listening to Collective Soul's Youth CD(2004). I'm a big fan of theirs and when this CD came out, some how I missed it. I'm just catching up. One of the songs has a GREAT simple solo on it. Its called How Do You Love.

Other than Collective Soul, My recent listening has been basically Boston, 38 Special, Metallica, & Megadeth.

ive been listening to the new White Stripes (Icky Thump) a lot. also, Clutch is one of my favorite bands, and the newest cd, From Beale Street to Oblivion, is excellent. i dont know when it was released, but i havent been able to get enough of the Black Keys "thickfreakness" lately either.

saw a folk artist a few weeks ago at Musikfest names Anais Mitchell. She just sings and plays guitar, and it's some of the most emotional music that i've ever heard. She has a new CD out called The Brightness.

Last year at this time, I was listening to "Th' Legendary Shack Shakers". They were on tour with "Reverend Horton Heat" and I had just purchased tickets for the show, so I thought I'd pick up a "LSS" CD and give it a listen. I liked it so much that I went out and bought their other two CD's. They were incredibly good live.

This year, "The Rev." is touring with "Hank Williams III" and "Nashville P*&%y" so I've been catching their stuff on "You Tube". I like "Hank III's" country songs a lot. His "Assjack" stuff is something else entirely though.

You can legally download a bootleg recording of a Hank III show from his website. WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT

Recently have been enjoying new efforts by:

Suzanne Vega--Beauty and Crime (2007). An album of songs celebrating her New York. Standout tracks are "New York is a Woman": and "Ludlow Street" is a haunting tune. Makes me want to visit New York. Her last two albums have been a huge improvement over her early 90's tunes. Good singer-songwriting

Tracy Chapman--Where You Live (2005)--The track "Change" alone is worth the price of the CD. There's an honesty and passion about her music that very moving.

and

Jackson Browne
--Solo Acoustic Vol 1 (2005)--Jackson Browne playing "Take It Easy" solo-acoustically, is an Event with a capital "E". This is such an enjoyable album, even the banter between songs is amusing.

The new Rush album, Snakes and Arrows, is amazing. I've been waiting for an album like this from these guys for years now. Lifeson said of the album "we've just cut the album of our careers".

I'm not sure I am quite ready to say that it is my favorite Rush of all time. Too close to the release to say that yet. But the album comepletely blows me away. So, for now, it is. There is a freedom to Alex's playing on this album that is very exciting to listen to. Of course, all three of them are virtuoso players. It seems that there is more focus on songwriting than being show-offy or pretentious. It's great!

The only other thing from the past few years that has really flicked my bic has been the two A Perfect Circle albums.

+1 to Snake and Arrows. I think it is the best album they have put out in years. If you compare this album to others, they almost sound like a new RUSH. I just hope that they take this new found sound and take us to new places.

The latest album I picked up is a debut from a kid out in San Fransico...Etienne de Rocher. VERY unique sound to his stuff. The phrasing in his lyrics-- his cadence, to me, is very unusual, very mellow. It's an acoustic effort.
