The Weekly Playlist – Oct. 24 to Oct. 30

Nearly two years since I last prepped for a concert! Therefore, much of the week centered around a deep dive with Toad the Wet Sprocket. But I also managed another new album review and listened to a few more singles released from a local group. On the surface not a whole lot of music but read on, I actually listened to quite a bit…

And then I discovered three Alex Lifeson demos released from his archive.

  1. Toad the Wet Sprocket – Starting Now (album) and various songs

A listened to their new album Starting Now again which I reviewed in August plus I found a likely setlist for last night’s show at Revolution Hall, my first (somewhat) official (in-person) concert in nearly two years. Therefore, Toad kept me bust most of the week as I got acquainted and reacquainted with their 30 year catalog of music.

  1. Dream Theater – A View From the Top of the World (album) and various songs

Whenever I listen to Dream Theater I wonder why I don’t listen to them more. And, their latest album A View From the Top of the World proved that once again. Their 15h album stretched more than an hour which led to listening to a handful of other songs from previous albums.

  1. Athey Music – Father, He Is Good, Never Far Away (songs)

A local group released two more songs off their forthcoming release Goodness & Mercy so I gave all three a listen to see how the album was shaping up. So far, so good.  

  1. Alex Lifeson – Kroove, Banjo Bob, Serbs (songs)

Neat.

  1. Dang, I looked at the track list for ‘A View from the Top of the World’ and all of the songs are over five minutes. The title track is 20 minutes, holy cow! I heard that Dream Theater’s songs were long, but that’s nuts!
