What's coming up?

Okay, I was wrong. The new Megadeth is better than I expected and I am enjoying it quite a bit. Might get around to reviewing it here in a week or two.Next week is a theme week and it's going to be "Leftovers week". Does that mean I am serving up old pizza or day old pot roast? No, by leftovers I mean music such as demos, b-sides and previously unreleased material. Songs or versions of songs that for one reason or another didn't make it onto an album when they were first done. This week I will have these four reviews.

-Led Zeppelin-Coda: Perhaps one of the most well-known albums to feature previously unreleased material

-Pre-Electric Wizard:A collection of demos from various bands that Justine Osbourne had before forming Electric Wizard

-Black-n-Blue-Rarities: A mixture of demos, live and previously unreleased tracks.

-Dee Snider- Never let the bastards wear you down: A different kind of leftovers album that I will explain in more detail when I review it.

-One day this week I will reach into my twelve and seven inch singles and try to find some odd or somewhat unknown b-side material to spotlight.
-A special B-side Heavy Metal Jukebox. I will find songs that were B-sides of singles that I have and throw them into a Heavy Metal Jukebox. Don't worry they will be songs you will know.

Now I think it's always safe to assume that most albums of rarities and previously unreleased material are generally mixed bags. You get some gems and you get some songs where you instantly hear why they were not used. So I will try to make this week fun and I hope you enjoy it.

I recently saw the Heaven And Hell/ Megadeth... tour and I've been inspired to listen to the old Megadeth classics once again.

I listened to the new Megadeth on Rhapsody. I liked it a lot. It wasn't that the sound was different so much as it just had a lot more energy.

I saw it on the shelves and passed on it thinking that it would stink up the joint. Now I think that I'll pick it up.

axe man-Hope you enjoy it.

Dschalek-I have been listening to the old albums as well as the new one.

Bob-It had more energy, but it's way tighter and more creative than the last album.

Fuzzbox-I waited a few days before giving it a shot and was surprised with how good it is.

As much as I wanted to dislike the new Megadeth CD, I have to admit that it's damned good. They were great live too. Just saw then open for Heaven and Hell.

I think the new 'deth is very good, full of venom, but does run out of gas towards the end. If you want to see a great live DVD, their DVD That One Night in Buenos Aires is top notch.
