Machine Head - Now I Lay Thee Down

     I'm going all the way back to 2007 for your Throwback Thursday song this evening for a cut from what many would call Machine Head's masterpiece.

     Machine Head's career has been kinda hit or miss on the whole, and depending on who you ask, different parts have been hits and different parts have been misses. But I think anyone who's into Machine Head at all will probably agree that 2007's The Blackening has to be counted near the top, if not at the top, of the band's catalogue.

     That's why you're getting something from The Blackening for Throwback Thursday, namely "Now I Lay Thee Down". It's straight-forward enough that it could almost be on the radio, but it's also got some cool grooves and some fun bass work (particularly in the choruses) that warrant another listen. Want some no-frills heavy for your Thursday evening? Machine Head circa 2007 have got you covered.
