    Not bashing the band on my part, but rather their label for releasing a horribly flawed recording. These kids are fantastic performers and deserved much better than that hot mess....

    Harsh and off the mark remarks referring to the SNL performance. Not sure what triggers such reactions as the audience sure loved it. No I'm not a fan but these young brothers threw down right there. I know I know..to each their own. I enjoyed it.

    I agree I had never heard of them but thought the band was pretty awesome...didn’t love the songs and don’t care for the singers vocal style, but the music was tight.

    I’ll have to give a listen on tidal to see what all the hooplas about...

    Greta Van Fleet - From the Fires

    I actually like that album. The new one they put out, not so much.

    And as with all bands, some I like to watch and some I don't. I like Greta Van Fleet's music, I don't like watching them play live one bit. Just something about the lead singer and his antics on stage just rub me the wrong way.

    I also guess I like the "From the fires" album better for now. I have only played them both thru twice so not ready for a final judgement. These guys are fairly local so I have to root for them to find their own way and style. The recordings hopefully get better attention with the Grammy win under their belts. My grandson went with his roommate to hang out in Frankenmuth and party with them a couple weeks ago. I haven't talked to him yet about how that went but that pretty much puts a date stamp on me. Its been a while since I remember a bunch of young guys going for it. Heard a song on the radio while I was driving in Detroit. That was pretty cool. Hope they keep it going.

    From the Fires is good, IMO. Gotta support the local boys for sure. They get a lot of play here. Got the new album a while back, still in the wrapper. Maybe I'll take it for a spin now! :smile:

    Leave it in the wrapper. Your ears will thank you. The music ain't bad, but it sounds horrible due to very poor mastering and production.

    Actually that's why it's still in the wrapper! All the not so glowing reviews here on CP! :smile:

    The new album makes nice background music... even being used to iTunes it sounds pretty bad. I like the music though, and hopefully, we can get better remasters in the future!

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
