|Deftones Off The Popular Albums List!?|
I get back from a week's holidays and what is this!? Deftones are off the front page's popular albums list!? My god, I thought it would never happen, seeing how long they've been up here.rList is albums I listened to on my week long vacation to the seaside, in order of love.

Rage Against The Machine
A solid enough album I guess. Morello has some decent-enough riffs, and the bass is funky. De la Rocha has some good rhymes too, but he can get irritating if you're in the wrong mood. In fact, the whole band can. I'll probably have most of sputnik disagree, but I think the album is overrated to be honest. A good, solid debut, but not as great as everyone makes it out to be.
Axe To Fall
The album I listened to the second-least up there. It's a good enough album, but there's nothing like realising you forgot to sync one of the tracks on it to your ipod when you get back. As such, I didn't experience the greatness of Dead Beat until I got back. Album is a good release-Dark Horse, Dead Beat and the title track are choice slices of metalcore, and Cruel Bloom is great. However, the longer songs tend to drag a bit, unlike Jane Doe, and it's a tad overrated.
Selected Ambient Works 85-92
Yes, you can hit me. What on earth was I thinking taking an electronic album up to a remote seaside town!? It's a solid enough release, but I really wasn't in the mood for it up there much. Have listened to it a lot since, I really like it.

Hated it on first listen, I actually love it now. The avant-garde parts are amazing. Especially the final part of the album. Great also for beach walks and relaxing, but the metal parts let this album down in my opinion. They shouldn't have included so much metal; it sounds forced and sub-par and just gets boring. The lyrics can also seem a bit awkward at times, but that comes with the avant-territory I suppose.
Relating to the title of my list. Whoah. Team Sleep is an awesome band who made an awesome album with an awesome vocalist. They need more love. Album is perfect for long walks/runs along beach and general seaside town atmosphere, though I do feel a little guilty for thinking it was Chino singing on Princeton Review. I just thought he had a really, really versatile voice.
|3 is so much better then the rest|
4 is alright
|4 is awesome|
really want to get hold of 1
|they're off of it because of a list I made over a week ago, welcome to the party|
|#1's really damn good. #2...you aught to try Kayo Dot's 'Choir of the Eyes'. Based on your description of 'Bath', that might be more your cup of tea.|
|5 is the greatest album of all time. Of course that's only the case if you're a white, middle class 15 years old boy. Still, Wake Up and Freedom are truly brilliant.|
|Ha, thanks inveigh. Like I said, Ive been gone since the Friday before last, so I haven't been keeping up. I've been meaning to listen to Kayo Dot actually, they're on my "to buy" list along with a crapola of other stuff. And geng you crafty bastard; looks like I'll have to regress a few years to appreciate 5 then. |
|5 is just held in such high regard because it is a rather good album and because it definitely was a landmark record.|
