Wanted to update my journal, so why not to write (again) about some rock music, who knows if one wants to find new music...

I have enjoyed these two albums by David Bowie; it's question of the classic album Ziggy Stardust and Let's Dance. The first-mentioned includes many classic songs as well, such as my personal favourites Suffragette City and Starman.
Then Let's Dance is quite a "groovy" album and just like the album title says, the music certainly brings positive vibes in the air - Cat People (this song was originally made for a movie of the same name, I must say that also that other version with Giorgio Moroder is quite a nice) as an example.

The British rock band Suede has this great album Coming Up and due to it's good energetic mood it's certainly music to listen in summer. Usually I don't care about nasal singing voices, but I think that Brett Anderson has got cool sound... Trash and Starcrazy as an examples.

As you might have noticed, I certainly have become a fan of Rush, one of the most well-known bands in the rock history. Then the vocalist-bassist-keyboardist-frontman Geddy Lee has done one solo album as well, and a while ago I got this My Favourite Headache for the listening. There are certainly some little influences that do remind of Rush, but at the same time the music sounds like certainly Geddy's own thing. Runaway Train and beautiful Slipping are my current favourites.

Back to Rush, I have listened to the band only over half year (meanwhile got half of their discography as well and read that band biography), but nevertheless I love their music already. They're versatile progressive rock-band with a long career, but probably the most amazing thing is the fact that there are only three musicians in the band and nevertheless they can sound like this. Geddy Lee has a recognizable voice and naturally he's known for his bass playing as well, Neil Peart is one of the most appreciated rock drummers and Alex Lifeson's guitar skills shouldn't be forgotten either.
Moving Pictures and Presto are my personal favourite albums, followed by Counterparts, Roll the Bones, Permanent Waves and Grace Under Pressure. To me it would be really hard to pick favourite songs from all of the albums I have got so far, so I limit the examples to couple of live performs. Meanwhile it can be wondered
- how even an instrumental song can have lots of power and catchiness in it (one of their most known instrumental songs and definitely the best one, the bass line and guitar leads are beautiful stuff); Leave That Thing Alone
- how one man can handle vocals and two instruments at the same time; Subdivisions
- the energy of their stage presence and the overall atmosphere in the audience (would be great to see a concert of this kind of big rock band some day);  2112: Overture / The Temples of Syrinx

As is known, David Gilmour was the guitarist-vocalist of Pink Floyd. He has done some solo albums as well, and I got the one called On an Island. The music reminds me pretty much of Pink Floyd's last album The Division Bell (which actually happens to be one of my favourite Floyd-albums) and it's quite a relaxing music as well. Take A Breath and  the title track are my favourites.

Artist | Varied
Finland
A girl from cold and dark north. Likes to roam in the nature with camera and enjoys it's reassuring effect, but then again believes that music is meant to be played loud and enjoys frequently live music as well.

Likes also smell of the forest after the rain, red hair, good food & drinks, nice people, enjoying of little things, conversations, humour, imagination and inspiration. Dislikes closed-mindedness, violence and going with the flow.

Birthday: 21st October
Horoscope: Libra
Interests & hobbies: nature and animals, music (bands, gigs and replenishing my CD shelf), Finnish mythology and folklore, art (visual arts, photography, writing), travelling, life
Sources for inspiration: Nature has calming and inspiring influence on me. Very often old myths and beliefs are related to it and the fauna, this stuff is interesting as well. Music is as important source, of course. Also human mind and different feelings, as well as visuality and imagination.
I admire: talented, down-to-earth persons and those who dare to be individual.
Life philosophy: Be true to yourself (you can't please everyone anyway) and the right people will like you.
Personal quote: "Let's mennään!"

Favourite...

Band / music style: Amorphis (Finnish metal band with influences from folk music and progressive rock).
After all I have quite a varied music taste; I like also Indica (Finnish band that plays some kind of poprock; though I like the albums sung in Finnish only), Pink Floyd and Rush (progressive rock bands) & Kate Bush a lot. And in addition I listen to Finnish folk music bands, rock music in general...
Animal: whooper swan, wolf, dog, crane, fox
Season: the current one, as every season is inspiring in a way or another. But especially late spring.
Food: chicken-pasta, sautéed reindeer
Colour: violet
Photographer: various nature- and gig photographers
Visual artist: Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Pirkko-Liisa Surojegin, Eero Järnefelt, Geoff Taylor, etc. There are many talented artists in dA too, but she is one of my favourites - zaronen.deviantart.com

Thanks for the link! I listened to also the English single A Definite Maybe  - musically it's quite nice as well, but the lyrics aren't that "Indica-ish" like they used to be before. So judging by these two songs I would say that the band definitely is taking a new direction and I'm not sure yet what to think about this new style. It's nice pop-rock but at the same time sounds "bit mainstream" and not the same Indica which can be heard on those Finnish albums before A Way Away. But surely I'm going to listen the new album when it's released, I'm still curious about it. ^^
