If you haven't gotten Ace's Solo Album...run out and get it NOW!
Lock yourself in your room. Turn it up loud and totally immerse yourself in it.
It doesn't and hasn't gotten any better than that album.
Destroyer is cheese.
Hrhr, you're right. The first stuff is still awesome and their best.
Destroyer is a bit too clinical and "designed" but there is no better concert opener than Detroit Rock City -
YAY, party time .
And God of Thunder
is also worth listening to.
