Evans Blue

21 03 2008

I can’t get enough of their newest album, The Pursuit Begins When This Portrayal of Life Ends. Really, really good stuff. I suggest checking it out if you’re into alt rock/hard rock stuff. I was trying to put together a new list of songs I’ve been listening to lately when I realized it’s just been this CD over and over.

Beg by Evans Blue has got to be one of my favorite songs ever. That thing is just amazing.

I love this album, from beginning to end. Do you have a favorite song of theirs? I honestly like every single one of them, but “Pin Up” is my current ringtone. I’ve been waiting for Evans Blue to come to New York forever!

22 03 2008
peachy124

phil, i don’t remember if i mentioned this the last time i commented on your music choice, but evans blue has a song that was on their demo (i think it’s on their myspace page, could be wrong about that) that is simply amazing.

“saturnalia” is in my top five favorite songs of all time. you should investigate. so good!

22 03 2008

How about The Carpenters, Phil? I like just about any type of music, even some of the Carpenters music. I like some alt/metal but I haven’t heard of that group.

22 03 2008
bigdogg48

Yeah Phil, that’s a great cd….love Dear Lucid, Our Time is Right Now…and I’m a big fan of The Tease from there last album…

Check out Sick Puppies – My World. http://www.myspace.com/sickpuppies I went to their concert with Chevelle and they were great.

22 03 2008

GGGGrrreaaatt Band! love “Quote” by them.
However, The Killers are the best band around today.

hey phil what’s Joe’s policy on music in the club house? i’ve heard that Giambi is a big fan of blasting his music, is Joe cool with it? and if so whts usually the tunes being played?

22 03 2008
bronxliaison

Did Phil ever choose the music he’ll come out too?

22 03 2008

Check out Saving Abel. Their first major label disc just dropped on the 11th, it’s kind of a 3 Doors Down, Buckcherry, southern rock mix. The video for their first single “Addicted” is on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQ4Jslynxcs) and is HOT! By hot, I mean the chick in it is smoking hot! Good disc from beginning to end.

22 03 2008
ssclemsonyankees3387

Hey Phil, would you happen to be a fan of AC/DC? If you are, you need to check out this band called Airbourne. They sound a LOT like AC/DC, and that music will get you pumped up.

22 03 2008
bronxbomber65

Phil if you like Evan Blue…check out Earshot (http://www.myspace.com/earshot) if you haven t already. Also Cold Fusion are good as well. Good Call on Evans Blue

22 03 2008
jessicayanks

evans blue are good. i think you might like this band called anberlin. maybe, maybe not. but worth checking it out.

22 03 2008
loveyankeebaseball65

haha ths cool. evans blue is good! since you like rock music, i was just wondering if you liked the band Daughtry?

22 03 2008
chocolateaddict706

Speaking of music, did you ever settle on a walkout song? Is it gonna be “For Whom the Bell Tolls” for sure?

Wild games yesterday in the NCAA tournament! Great finish to the Western Kentucky game and then late last night Villanova comes back from 18 points down to beat Clemson. Also, San Diego from the WCC moves on by upsetting UConn.

NO what sucks well let me tell you!

I was in Tampa at some yankee games and i got all these autographs on a ball and everything and when i arrived back in New York at the airport I went to get something to eat in the airport i left my bag next to my dad which had all my stuff in it( Signed Baseballs, I-pod, Social Security Card, Phil’s Rookie Card, and my wallet with my money) WEll when i came back my dad was in the car and i thought i saw my bag still there i turned around to get it and it was gone. All my stuff i got was gone. So everything on my first trip to Florida is gone. I’m only 16 and cherished my signed baseballs and stuff but now they are in the hands of someone else and i have nothing from the trip to remember except seeing the games. THAT SUCKS!

Sorry, but Evans Blue is obviously just a big ripoff of Breaking Benjamin and Chevelle.

Tool = Best. Band. Ever.

22 03 2008
alex4yanks

NoooOooooooooooo!!! i just spent my money on Avenged sevenfold’s new album… but i must tell you i was considering buying Evans Blue’s….

Now i have to find some more money to go out and buy it, lol

22 03 2008
mattyh7

Phil,
I checked out Evans Blue on myspace and they seem pretty good. Might buy their album, but only if you win your next start! Heh. Good luck this season -to you and the rest of the team!

22 03 2008
jyates129

painttheblack is right…tool is the best band ever

22 03 2008

Like someone before me, I’d also like to know what some of your pals on the team listen to… unless, of course, they will be cool enough to start their own blogs too.

22 03 2008

Phil-are you still listening to Angels & Airwaves at all? I-Empire is a masterpiece.

22 03 2008

Thanks, Phil. I checked out Evans Blue and decided to buy the CD. Keep the music tips coming.
Have you decided on the next contest yet?

The Promise and the threat and Kiss the flag are really good songs.

22 03 2008
absoluteislander

Eclipsed is my favorite song by Evans Blue.

I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of the group Ra, but if not you should check them out. “Do You Call My Name” is a good song to listen to while driving.

22 03 2008
peachy124

ra’s awesome. local boston band. their fifteen minutes were way too short. top songs, in my opinion: “rectifier,” “sky,” and “do you call my name”

22 03 2008
soshasarah

I’m listening to their stuff now on their myspace page . . . I like it. Maybe I’ll download the CD from iTunes when I get a chance. Thanks for the suggestion!

Happy Easter, Phil (and to all other Yankee fans on this blog:)!

h8boston is on the money.

Saving Abel – Addicted

Check it out.

23 03 2008

Hey Phil, I like both bands you’ve mentioned before (Evans Blue and Breaking Benjamin) a lot myself. I recommend you check out Crossfade, Puddle of Mudd, and Papa Roach. All good stuff.

23 03 2008
jcacho

Chevelle is also very good like someone said above me. If you have iTunes just order by popularity when you check em out prolly best way to look for new songs

23 03 2008

I hope you and other other players have joyous Easter.

23 03 2008

All these bands are good but i think classic rock is the best kind of music. Hey Phil do you listen to any classic rock?

23 03 2008
bamayanksfan

I bought this disc the day it came out and keep going back to it at least once a week. I keep checking their website for tour dates, but nothing is ever on there.

23 03 2008
bamayanksfan

I just read some of the other comments, and although I do love Evans Blue. I have to give the edge to Chevelle on a head to head competition, and TOOL is on a level by themselves far ahead of anything else.

23 03 2008

Phil,

If you like that Evans Blue album (one of my favorites) you should check out Trapt’s last album “Someone in Control” and the new Alter Bridge record someone mentioned earlier, “Blackbird”. You won’t regret it.

23 03 2008
drewnasty98

what would you say is your favortie song on the albumn?

23 03 2008

I checked out their myspace page the other day, they have some good stuff on there!

Phil, i must say i think you would really enjoy Avenged sevenfold’s new album… if you’ve heard it, tell me what ya think :)

23 03 2008
gregboisvert

I am a big fan of Evans Blue’s first album, not so much the second. I really think you should check out Killswitch Engage. The album As Daylight Dies rocks. Also Hurt is a really good band too. Best of luck as the season starts man.

23 03 2008

Phil the one band that will change your life…… MUSE

24 03 2008
rbangs33

Phil,
I just picked up the new Raconteurs CD. All of their stuff is killer. Jack White of the White Stripes is the leader of the band. Its a little more rock oriented than White Stripes stuff.
I must admit, among my friends, I discovered Evans Blue. I quickly recommended it to all of them, and they all became fans as well. Good Choice

24 03 2008

I love that you’re a player that loves alt rock as opposed to just rap….cool.

Hey Phil,

Good choice with Evans Blue…they put on a great live show, too! I saw them with Finger Eleven last Summer here in Seattle. If you havn’t already, check out F11…http://www.fingereleven.com they have one of the best live shows!!

Take care and good luck the rest of the way!

Phil.

EB is great. Also, if you get a chance, listen to Hurt. Their new album, Vol. 2 is great top to bottom. Not too hard, but every song is real good… try it out.

best of luck this season sir.

Hey Phil,

1st, Great game last night, it is so nice to see a Yankee pitcher that can keep his fastball down in the zone (that is the first and last time I will talk baseball on your blog, im sure you gotta be sick of talking about it all the time)

2nd, good call on Evans Blue. I was just talking with a buddy of mine about how music has been terrible lately. After reading your post I checked them out and they are pretty bad A$$. Anyway, thanks again.

Later Phil.

bombersfan08

Evans Blue is amazing. I’ve been listening to both of their CDs all the time for the past year? Same thing with Breaking Benjamin.

If you like Evans Blue and Breaking Benjamin, you should really listen to Red (their album is called End of Silence). I’m having the same experience with them as I’ve had with Evans Blue.

Yeah Evans Blue is pretty kickass, they played a show in orlando a little while ago.
