re recording album

anonymous asked:

I am a bit new so my opinion isn't 100% firm about harry and Louis relationship yet and the biggest thing that makes me ??? is that I don't understand how it is possible that there is such a difference between their situation.. do you have any idea why Harry is able to seems detach from all the mess and not Louis? How is that possible? That one seems incredibly stuck in the worst stunts ever and the other one is pursuing his career free of all of that? Thank you :)

Hi anon,

Sorry– I forgot about this ask for a few days.

I guess your question might have been prompted by Harry’s appearance in NYC last week, with Jeff Azoff. He was rumored to be meeting with Columbia records re: his solo album.

The next day, The Daily Mail in the U.K. published an article stating as much, contrasting Harry’s beatific airport pap photos (and photos with stalkers) to Louis’s disastrous LAX arrest. Unsubstantiated slander of “woman-hitting,” emotionally volatile Louis was reiterated in this article. He was again painted as an unreliable father. All stories we’ve read before from U.K. tabloids associated with the Bauer Group, with ties to Simon Cowell.

I guess my line of answering is:

Harry hasn’t done anything to encourage this line of thinking. He literally has not given any statement on it. He has not given a statement about his solo album, either. It’s not because he is being coy–because he clearly is getting some blowback from fans about why he hasn’t said anything. Fans are curious and impatient. His image has suffered too.

And making a public statement, in the general public’s eyes, would only improve his image and increase his visibility. It benefits Harry to make a statement.

So why hasn’t he?

Why haven’t his managers at Full Stop? Why don’t they address industry rumors? Why are there so many leaks coming from Sony, including statements by Rob Stringer, while Harry’s team has said nothing? What is Sony’s objective in publicizing Harry if Harry does not confirm?

Alternatively, why has Louis’s team said nothing to refute his public image?

These allegations are clearly slanderous. Louis has not been tried in a court of law. No one has given sworn testimony. His arraignment date has not come to pass. Emotional states are purely speculative. No official statements have come from anyone quoted in the article. His image has suffered from false allegations (U.K. And U.S.A.).

So where is his team?

And, why are these two always tied? If they have been enemies for three or four years, why keep writing articles linking them?

They’ve been on hiatus for 15 months. If they really disliked each other so much, they should already have deleted each other from phone contacts, SM, etc. Why keep in touch with your enemy? I don’t store the contact information of people who hate me, anon, do you?

Their airport sightings literally HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER. They aren’t even on the same side of the country. What is the purpose of linking them?

If I knew nothing about One Direction, I would experience a cognitive dissonance from the way the article swerved so awkwardly from “angelic Harry” to “devilish Louis.” The purpose seems so transparent, it’s embarrassing.

Except for one glaring fact.

They DON’T hate each other.

The band united to support Louis during his X Factor performance.

They came together as one band to accept their Brits for best video 2016. @srslycris and @lawyerlarrie
have great posts about this.

They tweeted in unity to wish Harry a happy 23rd birthday.

As Harry’s has said, “Draw what you see.”

1. There are restrictions on their public statements.
2. The images are being manipulated.
3. Their relationship with each other is good.
4. None of the four remaining 1D band members have been allowed to be specific about their solo projects.
5. Louis has been photographed to write with songwriters from Warner Chapel. He may very well have a solo album in the works. They are all working hard.
6. They are fighting a silent, bts, very ugly and drawn-out fight.
7. Recording labels have a history of screwing artists over.

Believe in our boys. They are the same good people you fell in love with. They haven’t suddenly been blinded by fame. They want to make music for us, and they have been working toward that. Every event and every article doesn’t need to be dissected for whether Harry is defending Louis. Trust them.

The people manipulating their image want us to have doubts, to fight within the fandom. Not only that, they are trying to divide the band members themselves. For years, the boys have had psychological manipulation in the guise of “protecting the 1D brand,” down to the way they move, talk, dress, look at each other, answer certain questions. Zayn’s recent article in NY Times Sunday stated he had anxiety when he was in 1D. He had an eating disorder because he wanted “to have control over one thing.” Is that really a surprise?

It’s infuriating, what’s happening to Louis right now. But it’s temporary. It’s going to end. This abuse has an end clause. Art is long– Louis is young and he’s going to fight it, with the support of his boys.

Sorry I went off in such a tangent, but I wish we could see past these media games, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Let’s be smart in evaluating the data, and not be so easily manipulated.

She has such a fetus voice on Popular Song I love it

She does! 

tbh that might be the earliest recording of her voice on yours truly, like, we know the songs are younger like honeymoon avenue but she re-recorded them for the album. Popular song was recorded while she was in Victorious and released April 2012 while she had time to have the rest of the albums vocals more recent for YT’s release September 2013. 


2006. Mythical & Magical

is the third album by band Pagan Altar.

Pagan Altar was formed in 1978 by Alan and Terry Jones. Alongside Witchfinder General, they are one of the few NWOBHM bands to play doom metal. The band’s concerts are characterised by moody, epic and heavy music, blended with stage effects which accentuate their interest in occult themes.
Pagan Altar’s only release from the NWOBHM era was an independent, self-released, self-titled cassette in 1982(which was bootlegged in later years). Their debut album was officially re-released on Oracle Records in 1998, retitled “Volume 1”.

The group reformed in 2004 to re-record an album of previously unreleased material which had been written during their original tenure as a band. The resulting album, “Lords of Hypocrisy”, met with a positive reception from fans, and a third full-length album duly followed in 2006, entitled “Mythical and Magical”.

The best things about this album is the excellent songwriting and seductive leads. If you’re a fan of Pentagram, Witchfinder General, Black Sabbath,  Uriah Heep you should definitely check this album out.
Pagan Altar never had the time it deserved in the glory days of NWOBHM.

New vips love to make a mountain out of a molehill. You don't see seasoned vips or kvips ranting about line distribution. What do you want Bigbang to do? Re-record the entire album? The focus is on the group not how much solo activity the members get. New Seungri fans and the whole "YG doesn't care about Seungri" narrative. Shut up lol. He had 2 albums. Blame yourself for not doing enough. You couldn't get him to win on music shows. He lost on MAMA by fan vote. That's not YG's or Bigbang's fault

Funny you mention that only new VIPs feel that way when VIPs since debut reblogged the same post. You message all 600+ people who reblogged and liked that post as well. You think because you’ve been in the fandom longer that it makes you better than me? I support all of our boys. Two albums later and Seungri still doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. You messaging me with this tone shows how cowardly you are. You can’t even handle someone with a different opinion than you. The only change here is that you need to learn manners and how to approach people without being rude af.


On this day in music history: October 5, 1973 - “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, the seventh album by Elton John is released. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, it is recorded at the Château d'Hérouville in Hérouville, France in May 1973. Issued as the follow up to “Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player”, initial recording begins in Kingston, Jamaica at Dynamic Sound, where The Rolling Stones have just completed work on their album “Goat’s Head Soup”. However, technical problems with the studios sound system, dissatisfaction with the studio piano and political unrest on the island, they move the recording sessions to France, where John has recorded his two previous albums (“Honky Chateau”, “Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only The Piano Player”). Consisting mostly of material written by Elton and Bernie Taupin over three days in Jamaica, one earlier song, “Grey Seal” (originally the B-side of “Rock & Roll Madonna” in 1970) is re-recorded for “Goodbye”. The album is a commercial and artistic triumph upon its release, and is regarded as a landmark release in Elton John’s career. It spins off three singles including “Bennie And The Jets” (#1 Pop) and the title track (#2 Pop), becoming John’s biggest selling studio album. “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” spends eight weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 7x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.


1996. The Secrets of the Black Arts

is the debut album by Dark Funeral, released on January 28. The only album to feature guitarist Blackmoon, vocalist/bassist Themgoroth and drummer Equimanthorn.

the band founded by guitarists Blackmoon and Lord Ahriman in 1993. They emerged during the second wave of black metal.

The original recording was produced by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios. According to Blackmoon, he insisted that they re-record the album due to “severely unprofessional production and manner from Mr. Swanö”. He continued, “He was overworked and mentally tired when we came to the studio. Also, our then-drummer was not playing as good as he should have. So it ended up crap.” The rest of the band was satisfied with the recording, but Blackmoon refused to release the album with that recording. They decided on The Abyss Studio and recorded the album that was eventually released to the public.

“The Secrets of the Black Arts” is good album. Almost twenty years later, it is still a very strong full-length. You can use it as a pretty nice energy provider from time to time.
