I know what you mean Dave. Those lyrics suck so much, I'm onto Rita Ora and One Direction now. Way more gratifying.
Never heard of either one, will look them up later.

Never heard of Rita Ora before, but I was sampling a few of her songs. Yeah, way more gratifying, and such heavenly lyrics!

I don’t know Marc, I’m way past my teenage years and teenage angst and even back then boys bands and pop music didn’t do anything for me.

I don't think anyone should take the comments by and exchange between Marc and myself seriously. Also not Bazelio's comment about Black Sabbath sounding awful. We're just having fun. No emojis needed.

But seriously, Billie Eilish is great.

Barry and me listened to Billie yesterday via the Extreme. You've heard the phrase "phoned it in"? Well, she literally phoned in her recording. Fidelity wise, it sounded about Atari 8-bit level. Sadly, all that fake moaning and groaning that takes the place of, y'know singing, came thru "clearly". She's so achingly hip, she'll get OA before her time.

Exactly why I don't listen to the radio or current music. It all pretty much sucks these days. With the rare very few exceptions of course. 99.9% of the mainstream "so-called" music however just truly sucks.

Chops, pity me at the barber pre-Covid, waiting 20 mins or so for a shave, and the shop literally vibrating to this music on a loop. I think I was young once, before I started showing an interest in fuses and power cords...

Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling,
Begging mercies for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings


I'm just loving this.

By the way, I found out that War Pigs sounds great on my system also through just the monitors, without subs. I discovered that accidentally, as I turned off the subs for a piece with bass overload (I can do that simply with a switch on the preamp, controlling the outlets), and then forgot to turn them back on. The drums have punch, and a good amount of weight, also through just the monitors. Geezer's bass isn't that bassy anyway, in terms of low frequencies, and a good amount of the power derives also from Tony Iommi diving into his guitar's low register and letting it ring out with generous distortion. On this, the subs obviously contribute hardly anything.

Iron Man from the same album sounds extremely powerful too (I listened with subs). Just gorgeous.
