Iron Maiden released the simply magnificent live album, Nights Of The Dead, Legacy Of The Beast Live In Mexico City which must rank as one of their best (up the Irons!!).

Agree on this, it's a brilliant live album. Good to hear stuff like The Clansman live as well instead of a lot of the usual suspects. Wasn't out when I posted my list else it'd have been on it for sure.

Thunder

... :o

Glad you enjoyed the Maiden album as much as me, dude!!!

Give the Thunder album Robert Johnson's Tombstone a go, an absolute corker!  :thumbsup:

I'm a big Maiden fan too - the new live album seems to be getting roundly criticised on various Iron Maiden Facebook groups. That has put me off buying it, but then again I only have two of the many they have released over the years (Live After Death and Rock in Rio).

I haven't seen this but I am not big in social media. Why has it taken a kicking, out of interest?

I find live albums are often a bit pants in general, but I listened to this one online a few times first before investing in it.

I assume the correct answer to this is 'Future Teenage Cave Artists' by Deerhoof, cos ya know Deerhoof. But I've not got around to buying it so some reason*.

*That reason being I'm a bloody idoit!

I’ve not seen an actual reason given. The analysis was at the level “it’s not very good”. 😉

I’ve been enjoying the album Sugungga by South Korean band LEENALCHI. They’ve had their songs used in a great tourism campaign recently: https://youtu.be/ePrDTbeq5ws

Galore by Oklou

Transcendent, sad, beautiful and bewitching. I needed this album this autumn, it being 2020 and all that. And all the year's horribly familiar constrictions slipped away ...
