Re: Metal

I'm still not quite sure of my opinions on Unexpect. They do have some really great moments in their music- especially their album intros, the opening to "In a Flesh Aquarium" was a great bit of scene setting- but their music seems to lack any overall purpose to it. They don't quite seem t...

Re: Radiothread

Nice song, the dual drummers really bring a lot to it. And I must say, floppy hair rather suits Thom =P

Re: Metal

Regardin' Alestorm, I sometimes find their lyrics a little offputting. Admittedly that's an odd thing to say about a band that embraces comedic cheese, but I tend to find the best comedic cheese bands administer their comedic cheese cleverly- rhymes, amusingly phrased or melodramatic similes, whatev...

Re: Metal

I'm rather partial to their (Van Canto) song "Last Night of the Kings" but otherwise yeah, I agree. They're great vocalists and they do very nice covers, but their songwriting itself isn't that remarkable. It just doesn't tend to be that interesting, and sometimes trying to make words out ...

Re: Perfect Moments In Music

On the subject of Modest Mouse, I love that heavy chord in the second verb of "The Parting of the Sensory," with the eerie synths in the background. It's so terrifying. The first thing I thought of when I saw this thread was the solo at the end of "Beneath the Mire", by Opeth. It...

Re: 2011 in Music.

Heh, I only heard it about three hours before you posted :P Yeah, I love the solos on it- it's got a nice "classic" touch to it. I mean, I'm all for freaky progressive stuff, but it's nice that he's bought out more than just the RAWR RAWR ballad :3 RAWR, into some more tense and restrained...

Re: 2011 in Music.

...I'm not a stranger to the album myself <.< I swear on Planet of the Apes, Devin yells "BUT WE ALL RIP OFF... MESHUGGAH!" I think that was when I stopped thinking "This is a good album," and started thinking "This is a great album :D". Although I wish they had made mo...

Re: Doctor Whom

I loved Midnight as an episode. I guess it's sort of the type of horror I'm into- rather than endless build ups and releases of tension (which to me always make me jump rather than scare me- it's like watching with a car battery hooked to my nip), it was sort of weirdly off and strange and quietly d...

Re: Radiothread

They did lose me with Kid A and Amnesiac, to me they seemed like they went off in the deep end and it is what I refer to as Thom Yorke syndrome, the world thinks everything you make is gold, so you purposely do weird things just so they can't possibly like it, because deep down you hate fame. Methi...

Re: 2011 in Music.

S But, there are two albums coming out this year, and I've never been more excited about new music than I am about these records. I'm talking about the third and fourth album in Devin Townsend's quadrupple concept album-streak-thingy, Ghost and Deconstruction. I love Devin and I'm pretty sure this ...

Re: Radiothread

Yeah, agreed on King of Limbs- although it was an interesting album. I'd like to see where they do go from here. Amnesiac... the worst? It's like Kid A but with more guitars! and you like the guitars! My least favourite- I honestly love all of Radiohead's albums. The reason why Amnesiac comes at the...

Re: Radiothread

Love Radiohead to death. Just as personal preference, I'm more a fan of their rockier albums- three guitarists isn't a common idea but it can be used extremely well. At their peak (OK Computer and The Bends) they were more or less the perfect rock band- brilliant performance from all musicians, bril...

Re: Doctor Whom

I thought the new episode was probably the weakest of the series so far, but it's still pretty good. Considering that Doctor Who tends to stash its weakest episodes at the beginning of seasons, this is probably the best openers I've seen so far. The ending was sort of unpredictable, but in that way ...

Re: Has there ever been a sadder song than 'Last Kiss'?

"Let Down" by Radiohead is about as sad as I've ever heard. It's so bleak and existential and mechanical.

Has anyone here heard of Shining? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqPCEADNz74 They call it "Blackjazz". Shining are okay, but they have that problem that besets avant garde in that they're just a bit weird for the sake of weird. Their music is interesting but there's not much I get from it...

XD Meh, the thing that draws me to DevilDriver over a lot of other newer bands is that I don't get the feeling that they're trying to impress anyone. I tend to find that metal is suffering a little from inbreeding; the fact that nowadays more and more metal musicians learnt instruments trying to pla...

Re: Metal

I'm not fully into Amorphis's early stuff- nothing against the style, the songwriting just doesn't appeal to me- but I'm quite fond of their later stuff. Skyforger and Eclipse were both really brilliant albums; I love their melodies. I'll say this against them, though- while they have a really good ...
