Core values:Thanks for Jason Heller's review of Loadstonein the August 12 Playlist. I recorded the album, and I really think that these guys deserve to be noticed. Heller's a good reviewer who knows his stuff. I don't think most people get where Core of the Earth is coming from.
Kittie rules! Their vocalist has really great power in higher ranges, a trait desired by a lot of bands these days. They sell out shows most all the time and made it to the pinnacle point of hosting MTV's Headbangers Ball recently. A lot of rockers look down on them, but all considered and given their ages, they really rock!
Panic attack:Excellent work in the August 12 Playlistby Nick Hutchinson and his descriptive dialogue on Widespread Panic. Putting it into words is an art form, and I enjoyed his perspective! Keep up the great work, take good care, and, of course, peace.
Rack and ruin:I strongly disagree with the review in the July 22 Playlist. This record is a must if you are a 311 collector like myself. I know Graham Webster is entitled to his opinion, but please don't let him put down the band by saying that you can find them on the dollar rack at the used-CD store or something! 311 is the best band of all time!
