The Wall Live stablishes new records

Next year Roger Waters will be building and destroying walls all over Oceania and South America. Nothing remarcable there. What is remarcable is the amazing amount of tickets he has sold in Argentina.

5 songs of U2 which you have probably never listened to before

A lot of people (at least a lot of people I know) tend to think that the music of a band or singer is just what they have listened on the radio. HUGE MISTAKE. In my experience, the best songs of most decent musicians are unknown to the vast majority of the public. Most people will just  download the most popular songs and that´s it. In this way, ELO is Last Train to London, Pink Floyd is The Wall Part II (are there more parts of it? Wow!!!) and The Beatles are Help.

The Sky Moves Sideways - Porcupine Tree

During the past year I began listening to Porcupine Tree. There are two albums that have striked mea lot and that I listen to regularly. One is Fear of a Blank Planet and the other one is The Sky Moves Sideways. I have already talked a bit about the first one in the post about PT (and surely I will make a post entirely devoted to it in the future) so now I would like to expand on the The Sky.
If you like Pink Floyd and you wonder how they could have sounded like have they begun playing in the ´90s instead of the ´60s, then this is an accurate proxy. Furthermore, the structure of the album is very similar to the one of Wish You Were Here (and for what I understand this has been made on purpose): it has 5 songs and the first and last are two parts of the same one, lasting +18 and +16 minutes each.
