  1. Very cool to read these. Re: the Sept 15th 2001 show in Saskatoon - I had tickets to that concert. Then September 11th happened and everything was cancelled
  2. Wow - that Sicily cover is impressive!
  3. Yep - this album is a grower. First few listens was “okay” but with each listen, it keeps growing on you. Makes me want to go back to LOES and the slower songs on Chaotic Neutral, with no desire to listen to AOD or even the older rock albums. It’s like this is what he was meant to be. Wonderful to see how an artist can grow and change. Bravo, Matt.
  4. Really loving A Thousand Tons. Wouldn’t be out of place on Loser Anthems....right after Flight Recorder From Viking 7.
  5. All of this My favourite songs on Chaotic Neutral are exactly these. And think about it - I was 23 when Beautiful Midnight came out. I also squeezed into the mosh pit when MGB played Edgefest, hung out at the bar every weekend until 2am with my buddies listening to MGB and would do it all over again and again every single weekend. Now - I’m 43, I’m a grandpa (serious), my favourite piece of furniture in our house is my bed, I’m ready to go sleep at 9pm every night, and my body aches every morning when I wake up. Can’t even imagine my 23 year old self anymore. My last MG show was sitting at a table in a casino watching him play. No mosh pit. No jumping. No yelling to “play Time Bomb!!!” And it was my most favourite concert yet. I find myself now listening more to artists who are in the so-called latter stages of their careers (and frankly who I think are better now than ever) or exploring the back catalogues of artists who have passed away - and who will never write another new song again. I don’t stream music. I still buy digital downloads but I also want to physically own a copy and have it in my hands, so I buy the CD and often the vinyl. And I am grateful for these artists’ passion. Because I know I could never do what they do.
  6. So hauntingly beautiful. Not gonna lie...I choked up/teared up when I saw his facial expressions at 1:08 for the first time
  7. Thx for posting this - such a great tune live. Wish I could find LOES (the song) live on video somewhere. I remember not being a huge fan of this song when I first heard it but he opened the Calgary show with it and it was amazing - completely changed my mind on it!
  8. Thanks for this....really gets a person thinking and it's amazing how differently we can each see things. For me personally, I consistently listen to Hospital Music, Avalanche and Vancouver....those would be my top three. Then it's Storm, although admittedly on only really listen to the title track, Bullets and This is Night on a regular basis and for whatever reason I just listen to Bad Guys Win over and over and over again. I actually wish the album version was extended somehow (I love the finally minute, and it always seemed to me like the very beginning is cut off from something "bigger" that is building). Then Lights and Chaotic - both have amazing tracks but I just haven't listened to them much lately. Then Arrows (I agree it's a little too cookie-cutter at times but sometimes I'm in the mood for it), and finally White Light. I never listen to WLRRR and when I do, it's only Blue Skies. If I had to give up one album in my entire MG collection - this would be it. Go figure!!!
  9. Got tix for Regina...thinking about Saskatoon too....
  10. Big fan of this song and the video. Definitely has a “feel” to it. So looking forward to the album!
  11. Love it. Parts of it sound very LOTGA-ish and others are reminiscent of Hospital Music. Kinda enjoy how there’s very little info about the album coming out...like in the old days before the internet
  12. Hard to believe that 20 years ago this month (Sept 14th to be exact) is when Beautiful Midnight was released. Man, do I feel old now lol An album that lived up to and exceeded expectations....I still remember where I bought it, opening it up and seeing the monkey mask on the CD and the little words “hidden” in the liner notes booklet printed in clear ink (if that makes any sense), how I listened to it, what songs really hooked me, and how it was the soundtrack to my life then and marked some significant changes in my life. Thx to Matt & crew for that album - such a masterpiece.
  13. Went to the Regina show last night - Matt really seemed to be enjoying himself. Been to almost all of his tours but one of the few I missed was the acoustic tour from a few years ago. No new tracks added to the set list last night (I don’t think) but we did get 4 songs in the encore which I think has happened only one other time thus far. Hope I can continue to see him perform for decades to come, such a remarkable talent.
  14. They were also set to tour as part of a festival in mid-late September and then Sept 11th happened and it was cancelled....
  15. +1 to the MG customer service team...they were quick to respond to my emails. Just waiting for the whites to show up in the mail any day now
