    Jooter Shennings

    I picked up his new album today, the one he recorded with Hierophant...

    ...blech...

    Hierophant evidently sounds a lot like NIN (dirty and industrial), and the album itself sounds like a dystopian sci-fi rock opera. I'm definitely not impressed.

    well, when you're expecting the soulful crooning of Shooter's sweet Southern singing, a dystopian rock opera is the last thing you expect to hear.

    bummer... been waiting for early reviews before I plunk down cash. I think he's been sniffing his own b.o. a bit toooo much.

    there were 2 decent songs in the time i was listening (i got through about half the CD). but like i said, it (unfortunately) mostly sounds like a dystopian rock opera...great if you're into NIN, rammstein, korn, or similar bands.

    he's been lame from the start IMO. Keller Williams latest would be a much better purchase

    Little bump...I finally had time to sit down and listen to the whole CD beginning to end. It is most definitely not Creaky's daddy's type of music, but it's actually set up very interesting. I'll stick by my initial description of "dystopian rock opera," but it's actually pretty cool how the CD is set up. It's supposed to be "the last free radio broadcast" in the US, so after every song there's a fake DJ giving his commentary about the song, and how the next song pertains to life in general...the CD wraps up by guys storming in and taking over the "radio station." It's mostly Shooter covering Hierophant's songs, if I understand correctly, but he does have a couple original songs on there. It's definitely not what I'm used to from Shooter, but it's very unique.

    edit:
    Forgot to add that you really have to listen to the CD in sequential order...What I normally do is put the CD on shuffle, but you just can't do that with this CD.

    That's Stephen King.

    Interesting factoid: They never met or worked together. It was all done electronically.

    as I mentioned in another music thread, I became more interested in listening to King's rants as his "Wil of the Wisp" character than I was in listening to (most of) the music. Meh

    Hey, speaking of Shooter, does anyone want the album he released to his e-mail list on Christmas? I've got it in a .zip file that I can email to anybody who's interested.
