Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Dios (Malos) - Nobody's Perfect

I can't block out the bad times
With the few good ones we had

I first heard "
Nobody's Perfect" while lying under the star filled sky on a beach in Baja. It was barely audible as we were listening to it through an iPod which was turned up to the max and placed on the sand. Regardless, I loved it. It might have been the setting. It might have been the people I was with. Either way, it stuck with me and when I returned home from the trip I remembered to look into Dios, who later became Dios (Malos) due to a lawsuit from some guy named Ronnie James Dio who had a band named Dio. Whatever ...

There were quite a few songs I ended up liking from their debut album (Dios), but I particularly liked this one because it sounds Pink Floyd-esque. Hopefully guitarist Joel Morales won't read this or I'm sure he'll have a few choice words to say about that. Actually, I hope he will! But according to his self written bio of the band:
"If our sound is reduced to a catchphrase, or some California postcard-like description, the range of mood and innovation in our albums is lost. We’re just trying to write good songs and we’re trying to dress them up or down, creatively and interestingly. Keep ourselves satisfied first. Fuck anybody else. So far it seems to be working."

Cool man ... whatever you say. I just like this song & hope you will too!
