10/10 best album ever.
lol what a gay cunt
kinda meh. there's 3 or 4 songs that i love but it's all so samey that sometimes i don't even realise when one song is over and another has begun
Tyler The Creator - Bastard - 2009
No doubt I thoroughly enjoyed it. There are styles here that are new, that is why I can see it will have an effect on the genre. At the age of 17, he is able to craft something with ease it seems. He just wants to pour his brain out onto a disc and give it to people.
It is outlandish, that cover bends the mind slightly. It isn't much of a "horrorcore" album which is going around lately that he is. This is simply abstract and hardcore in terms of the genre.
Very nice debut.
Tyler The Creator - Goblin - 2011 (DELUXE EDITION)
This is a lot to take in. The first was only a hint of what he is trying to say as an artist, but this is on a next level. He delves further into the madness, and this time he is able to bring the bigger picture.
It isn't for the light-hearted, he has the capability of creating disturbing images with ease. The thing about this type of artistry is that here, he can really pull it off. Compared to Eminem's madness, that only smudged the surface of this. And I don't mean musically.... probably I do.
Mew - No More Stories Are Told Today, I'm Sorry They Washed Away // No More Stories, The World Is Grey, I'm Tired, Let's Wash Away - 2009
Progressive pop at it's very best imo. Top quality album that has a lasting effect, I need more.
What makes it unique is that it vurges on being "Dream Pop", which is true but I don't think it takes over the music.
Listening to In Absentia on vinyl. First time this whole week I've not been busy doing music stuff to listen to music
9.9/10, it's not perfect, but dammit it's unbelievable
TV on the Radio - Dear Science - 2009
Great, bright sounding art rock album that has a tinge of funk to it. There is some outstanding instrumentation on this album and it is definitely up there with greats of it's kind. I've listened to "These New Puritans" and they don't come close to this.
Mesita - A million shades of sky
A great solo project Mesita manages to be fresh while not alienating his fans. The actual album feels well put together with the instruments being used in a very minimalistic manner but they sound brilliant. Overall a breath of fresh air Mesita has acheived simplicity while keeping the listener interested, my only complaint is that sometimes the songs may sound samey.
Good album, just nothing really striking
album of the fucking year
lol i saw some review that gave it like 6/10
was pretty convincing too but i don't really have an opinion
I've not listened to it yet, but Bastard took some time to get into. He probably judged it off first listen. I've heard others say they didn't like it that much straight away but it grew on them.
Goblin is a tough listen...
I had to listen to it all with intent, on an hour and a half journey.
It's safe to say it's his masterpiece.
But he is still young.
Covenant - Northern Light (2002)
Very good, I'll have to look into their other stuff.
Opeth - Morningrise - 1996
It's still Opeth, that's for sure. But lacks the power that was introduced with Orchid... I think they were going somewhere great with this album, but it simply struggles to find depth in sections. There are some KILLER Opeth sections here though... goddamn the music is good.
However this isn't one I'd go for straight away, it may end up being the least played Opeth album in my list, but all the while it is still creative.
Morningrise is in my top 3 Opeth albums
For whatever reason it seems to be a serious fan favourite
Covenant - Modern Ruin (2011)
Not as good as Northern Light but I still liked it.
The Night and the Silent Water is one of my favourite songs of all time. How do you define the consistency of it compared to the others?
I feel they didn't explore that much here, and it didn't put me in that Opethatic world as strongly as they have done.
Yeah I was about to say, to me it's probably their most consistent album, to the point of negativity almost since all the songs have a similar vibe
Judas Priest - Killing Machine
Classic priest. Pioneer stuff man
I've never rated it too highly. Demon of the Fall is a classic Opeth track but the album never really gelled with me. Probably should give it another listen. If nothing else it's the album where Mikael's voice went from the higher scream to the low growl of later albums
It's a good album for sure, but if you're going for classic Opeth Morningrise is the best.
