    Virgil Donati - In This Life (warning: will render all other music irrelevant)

    I saw this video when I got home from work:

    I immediately bought the album. Just finished listening. I'm on my second listen through. Fuck. Ing. Hell. This is absolute perfection. The grooves, the playfulness of the interaction between the cheeky melodies, the harmonies and chords, the drum orchestrations and patterns, the first class performances, the composition, it's all just nailed. Not a duff moment or element on the album, just amazing, amazing stuff throughout.

    He's picked some fantastic players for this. And it's not often you get to see Sfogli in musical situation where he's out of his depth. There's bunch of musicians on it I haven't heard of before. Going to be interesting exploring what they do on their own. But I was sold at Donati with Shreeve, even if it's only on a couple of tracks. I could listen to hours and hours of those two playing together.

    It's so cool to hear him not being dragged down by MacAlpine and Sherinian. They're both pretty good, but Donati is leagues ahead of nearly everyone, most definitely those two, on every level. And those guys' playing and choice of sounds, I find they never embellish my enjoyment of Donati; at best they tend to facilitate it.

    Off to jizz over my Donati-signed copy of Moonbabies and anything with a V on it.

    I'm constantly picking my jaw off the floor on account of the bass work on eleven.

    Don't worry about people talking behind your back, it just means you're one step ahead and they're in perfect position to kiss your ass!

    I'm just pissed they didn't show Marco until 2:00. Now you caught my attention.

    Marco is the least interesting person on this.
