    Puscifer - Conditions of my Parole (2011)

    5/5

    I don't know what's up with the weird album covers but I found this album awesome, much better than V in my opinion.

    I really feel obscure band has grown as a band in the release of this album that I legally purchased in vinyl because I'm so HARDCORE

    the album art really speaks to me and is extremely creative and provokes every emotion that their music repetitively provokes because it all sounds similar

    also I PRE-ORDERED this album with MONEY because I'm A GREAT SUPPORTER OF THE BAND and I'd never download music illegally
    trying too hard

    This and Hell Songs are more like noise rock rather than mathcore, really. Canada Songs is mathcore though.
    And yes, Daughters are great.
    This and Hell Songs especially are instrumentally a lot like mathcore but I can see where you're coming from, haven't heard more than a few tracks from Canada Songs though.

    Edited:

    Whatever you call it, The Hit is easily one of the best songs I've heard in a while.

    Exhaust - Exhaust

    This album is certainly something special among post-rock... an experimental album of noisy guitars and odd samples.
    Aidan Girt of godspeed is evident within this band... so you know there's something special about it. It's not entirely post-rock... but it's something one of a kind i'd recommend to people.

    8/10

    Samples:
    A History of Guerrila Warfare
    A Medley of Late Night Buffet Commercials

    you know what this is

    Anyway everyone calls this their "punk" album and I'm really not seeing it. Roger's lyrics are bitter s hell but the band sounds too pleasant! If this was a really punk album they'd like turn the distortion up and break everything and beat each other up, but no Roger Waters gets spat on, he cries and wets himself and shuts himself behind a wall. I mean all those punk bands like Black Flag and The Sex Pistols were spitting on each other all the time, but I digress. I do like this album. There are plenty of cool styles and even though I couldn't really get into the concept of the album, just listening to these guys jam out is really enjoyable. To me Pink Floyd have a lot of similarities with Grateful Dead. Not in sound but in my attitude towards them. I like both bands but they aren't up there my favourites. As musicians I don't say they're great, but they are competent and nice to listen to. And they've both got a cool consistent library of songs and albums which are great for any day of the week but there isn't really anything that wows me like some of my other favourite bands do. With some exceptions of course like and. Anyway this is a cool album and one of my favourites by them although this review is pretty useless because you've all heard the album before so i dunno.

    Tricky - Maxinquaye - 1995 = A

    This is one of my better discoveries as of recent. It's a trip hop album when it was in its prime, the 90s.
    I wouldn't call it a largely ignored album because Tricky does have a huge fanbase.

    What makes this album an essential one from the 90s is simply how creative it is for the times. It's comparible to Portishead but then again very different in atmosphere. We have moments of high movement as well as the slow downtempo bits with these smooth noises and textures.

    That's the main appeal for me, I think with each listen, I'll be discovering new ways of enjoying the textures because there is just a crapload of it to build up the atmosphere.
    The other thing is the vocals here. It's mainly by a woman, who has only a small acquaintance to the artist at the time, I think it was his girlfriend. Very good, not exactly the best, but very fitting in order to help the atmosphere progress.

    It has great rhythm tracks, but not the obvious repetitive style of dance/house but more a cluster of sounds to back it. That's what I like about trip hop, it's rhythm and atmosphere and a bit more.

    Crystal Castles II (or Crystal Castles 2010)
    1/10

    This shit was the worst example of rushed B-Side Album you can possibly ever come up with. It's literally 13 songs of just stupid ass sub-par chip-tune/techno with Alice's voice as noise where in most cases it's just harsh, unpleasing and amateurly experimental. This is the complete opposite of what the first album is (in before CC = Shit so CC II = Good) and I can't understand the appeal of this album.

    The only songs I kind of liked were Vietnam and Fainting Spells. But after liking the first album so much, this was a big disappointment.

    2 album special



    Robert Fripp - Exposure

    Classic, very well-known album. Really showed me the depth of what Robert Fripp can come up with - not just Crimsonesque discordant, fast guitar playing or frippertronics but the way he can blend it into pop, shows some punk sensibility in there too. Lots of signs of what is to come though, interestingly - which takes away the magic from some of the Crimson work. 9/10.


    The Cure - Pornography

    Really dense, dark album that's pretty brutal and unforgiving. Its really hard for me, even after a few listens to identify individual tracks because all the album sounds the same. And that's not a bad thing, its actually really good. Its this dense, dark, angsty atmosphere which I've never heard before and was kind of thrilling in a way, or at least very confronting. Definitely an experience and I'm finding it very hard to talk about its quality because in all honesty its the first time i've heard this kind of sound and it totally blew my mind away.

    As a ballpark rating, 7/10, but it was so confronting to me that I would have to give it a bit more than that after a few more listens. Definitely worth a look if you haven't already looked at it.

    Death From Above 1979 - You're a Woman, I'm a Machine

    Once again, I'm massively late to the party. But this, this is one of the few albums I've heard that I've absolutlely adored from the first listen. It's nothing complex or deep but that's exactly what's great about it. Just 35 minutes of sheer energy and enjoyment. There are no highlights because all of the songs are so brilliant. (okay, Black History Month is my personal favourite)

    But yeah. Another album I've only just gotten around to listening to and loved. A 9.6/10 from me.

    mah nigga.
    heard this back in... grade 7 maybe? I couldn't comprehend music that heavy and noisy back then. it was amazing. then fact that there was no guitar and just a bass making those heavy a screeching noises jsut made it more mindblowing. haven't listened to this in forever but it's definitely a part of my earlier music experiences I have no shame in.

    This. The first time I heard it was on SSX On Tour, which is probably one of the things that has influenced my taste in music the most.

    My taste was dictated by Guitar Hero until about a year and a half ago.
    Not that there's anything wrong with that, I mean I wouldn't even be listening to music enthusiastically if it weren't for that game.
