Still better than on the run...
Still better than on the run...
Ehh... This album is just far from bad, but it has a lot of downsides, which is why it deserves only 4 stars.
The main downside, in my opinion, is Dogs. I just can't get into this song. It has some cool parts but overall it just feels really uninteresting and unmemorable.
However, all the other songs are good. Pigs and Sheep especially, with Pigs On The Wing, parts 1 and 2 being good a good intro and ending.
So yeah, its definitely not a bad album, but Dogs really pulls it down from a 5 star for me.
The best animals of the farm are Pigs On The Wing, Pigs and Sheep.
Hell yeah, The Wall! Its a nice change from the usual Pink Floyd and it is REALLY good.
The first half has a lot of good songs with a few bad ones in between and the second album has the same problem. Especially Bring The Boys Back Home,
which just feels unfitting and odd. However, it also contains one of my favorite songs of all time, Comfortably Numb.
Although the live versions of Comfortably Numb are even better, the album version is very, very enjoyable too.
The Highlighted bricks are: Another Brick In The Wall (Pts. 1-3), Comfortably Numb and The Trial.
The Final Cut
Now this is just basically a Roger Waters album, with minimal input from other Floyd members. If you can get past that, its still an amazing album with lots of memorable songs.
Yes, I think that The Final Cut is underrated. I suppose most people might just not like Waters' style, but I love it.
The album overall is very emotional in my opinion.
Also, did you know that The Final Cut was originally supposed to be a soundtrack for the The Wall movie?
Songs that made the final cut are: Your Possible Pasts, The Fletcher Memorial Home and Not Now, John.
Also pink floyd
PINK FLOYD FUCKING EVERYWHERE
Blazing fires and helicopters on the front page of the newspaper. There's a war going on and I'm marching in heavy boots by Suffocate for fucks sake
Interesting as fuck post rock/whatever album. Album is predominantly broken up by samples of a girl talking in swedish about her life and escape from a mental institution. There's some screamed and sung vocal sections and it's full of cool stuff. Liked it a lot
also I may not be able to understand what she's saying, but I can feel the despair in her words. I can feel what she's trying to say. It's moving.
Sonic Youth's first album! Anyway this band has some of the best guitars I've heard. They're the only band I've heard of who jams nails and drumsticks in their fret board to make certain sounds. Anyway this isn't their best album but if you like Sonic Youth, definitely check this out. If you like the sound of guitar feedback then this band would be right up your alley because they love feedback.
Its definitely worth going through La Dispute's discography too though, a lot of great songs on the Here Hear EPs and a few great splits. Their debut is mind-blowing if you haven't heard that. Vancouver and the Untitled 7" are also pretty cool.
A solid 10 out of 10.
After a 5 year hiatus, Eminem came back better than ever. It's got a really dark feel to it, and Eminem makes his alter ego Slim Shady even more insane. Pretty much every song on this album is great.
Example - Playing in the Shadows
Example back on form again, every song is great to be honest. None of today's typical 3-4 songs of 15 being good, the rest filler.
If you guys like Suffocate for Fucks Sake, you should listen to Sed Non Satiata
Face candy - Waste age teen land
seriously not what I expected, considering the lead vocallist is a renowned underground hip-hop artist. but it's still good for what it is, even if that is freeform jazz accompanied by nonsensical and surrealist lyrics which delve into the self-deprecating mind of Michael Larsen
He can enjoy it more, even though you don't.
no, just rating the beginning of his end 10/10.
I personally think "Recovery" was the end of his madness which I found interesting.
It told me he'll never make anything as good as Lose Yourself.
However, I listened to Marshall Mathers LP a LOT prior to my interest in music. It's a true future classic.
Beck - Sea Change
A definite departure from his previous work in terms of writing, production and sound, Beck swaps his trademark drum machines and sampling for mellow stringed instruments and acoustic guitars. Written when he suffered depression after splitting with his long-term partner, it is not an exaggeration to say that Sea Change is the sound of heartbreak and sadness. Every track on this album communicates with the listener on an audible level and an emotional level, each sombre song showing the depth of his pain that is best expressed in the lines ''There's one road back to civilization, But there's no road back to you....'' (Paper Tiger).
This is an album that everybody should listen to at least once in their life, this is not just an album, this a man baring his soul and showing the world how it feels. Some may be able to relate to it and others may not. This album is definitely Beck's magnum opus and a resounding:
Key Track: Lost Cause
I fucking loved Lost Cause
I'm pretty confident there can never be an album that's more Twee than this
Another Cynthia - The Mannequin EP
Love every track just like their self-titled.
But their self-titled is much better
It was pretty catchy I guess, but it's not really a gem.
It was pretty good, some songs I didn't really like though. Still worth listening to!
Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea (8.5/10)
I boycotted listening to this for a long time because I heard Oh Comely a few times and thought it was complete and utter shit (and it is), but I finally decided to give this a real chance hoping I would see the magic in it that so many people do.... And I really didn't, its a solid album and I enjoyed it a lot but the first word that came to mind while listening to it was "overrated". Its a fantastic album that definitely has some amazing songs but when listening to it as a whole it just feels so disjointed and unorganized at times that I can hardly say its a classic or a masterpiece or whatever it is people call this album. Also, what the fuck is up with Oh Comely? I don't know what it is people love about that song but it sounds like complete shit to me. However, Holland 1945, The Two-Headed Boy, and the title track are enough for me to safely say everyone should listen to this album.
Oh and of course, Jesus Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiist
I just realized I give a lot of .5's in this thread, usually just to stress that I like this more/less than an 8 or whatever, but its kinda funny it seems like I tack a .5 on to everything. Maybe I should change up my system a little.
The Lonely Island - Turtleneck & Chain
Genre: Hiphop, rap, pop, comedy
Length - 19 tracks, 39 minutes
If you haven't heard of The Lonely Island yet, go to youtube and search "I'm On A Boat". Of course, I'm going to assume you've heard of them. Turtleneck And Chain is their second full length album. It features several of the songs from their recent music videos, such as We're Back, I Just Had Sex, The Creep, and a few others. Although this album has 19 tracks, don't be confused. It's only a fair 39 minutes.
The album has few great songs. Songs like We're Back, Throw It On The Ground, No Homo, and Jack Sparrow are hilarious songs which are great and memorable. Although this album is full of other tracks which aren't nearly as funny. The title track, Turtleneck & Chain, is very forgettable and overall, at the most, is silly. Songs that are only "silly" and not "hilarious" fill the majority of the album. Even the song, The Creep, was at the most, silly without the music video. Nicki Mijas part in the song was awfully boring and unfunny without the music video.
In general, it's an OK album. TLI excels in viral music videos and not so much in full length albums. I recommend buying a few of the songs individually on iTunes instead of buying the full length album.
Favorite Songs: We're Back!, Throw It On The Ground, No Homo
Worst Songs: Turtleneck & Chain, The Creep, Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde
Do Make Say Think - Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn
Really beautiful and warm sounding post rock. I've sort of fallen out with modern examples of the genre due to a lot of it being boring background music but this is one of those treats where a post rock band does more than detached crescendos. There's a great sense of very fluid progressions in here and a very wintery feeling that was just perfect for such a cloudy day. warmly recommended.
might look into that
10/10 Surf rock and punk rock at his best !!
Suddenly, you all enjoy this.
Anyhow, on to the Album:
Nine Inch Nails - Broken
I'd give it a 9.5, if only because it doesn't have the same kind of feeling that Year Zero or With Teeth had, or Downward Spiral for that matter (The Best Album in my honest opinion).
