So, the new 30 Seconds to Mars album is their best, IMHO. Here's why you should buy it: 1. It's a really, really good, creative record by a talented group. These guys also work their butts off! 2. It was produced by Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Killers,The Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, Morrissey, The Pogues, David Byrne, XTC, The Counting Crows, the list goes on and on). And the record sounds "right" as it should. Steve is the nicest of guys, who gave a big opportunity to a young recording/mix engineer on this project, who happens to be my son! 3. Because my boy said, "Please tell your friends to get the record!" Well, you guys are my friends, so I'm just sayin'...please get the record. And, if that ain't enough...party (!) bonus (!): 30 STM is on Kimmel tonight and Jamie's mixing the band for the show. Heck yes I DVR'd it. He won't be on stage (he got to play onstage in NYC at one of the shows and on Sirius radio), but I'm not gonna miss hearing it. What if a semi-trailer crashes through the ceiling in my studio this afternoon and I have to go to the hospital? Had to DVR it. Same thing with Conan tomorrow.
