|Digging And Stuff|
Albums I'm listening and stuff. Obvious statement.
Head of the Pack
Seriously what the hell, this is awesome. They manage to capture the 80's while avoiding the suck that usually goes with the retro sound. Honestly. I think it's gotta be the vocals...or maybe it's just the fucking awesome leads. I don't know. What I don't know is that "Ride the Beast" is just pure, beautiful metal.
You ever listen to an album, and think "hey this is really good stuff"...maybe listen to it a few times over the years and always enjoy it? Yeah, that's a lot of albums probably, but I put this on the other day and was blown away...it's not just really good, it's really really great.
The Shape of Punk to Come
I got this one back in October of last year if I remember, just because I wanted to hear what the original version of "New Noise" sounded like (compared to the Anthrax cover). I listened to it in full once, rated it, and never listened again. Now I'm listening again and it's really catching my ear. Great stuff.
I feel like I've listened to this album like 100 times in the past few months. Seriously. It's just that good. I don't really know any other way to explain it, cause it's just awesome. I feel like if I try to describe its awesomeness, I would insult this album or something. Damnit, why do all the good bands break up?
By the Light of the Northern Star
It's all viking-y and stuff. About vikings. And it's really entertaining.
Ride With Death
Honestly this whole album sounds like one big song. It really does. But that doesn't mean it isn't pretty freaking sweet. "Up All Night" and "Denver 666" really set the standard for this band, I hope their follow up doesn't suck balls.
Live Without Sense
Just a great live thrash album. I don't really know what else to say about this one besides that. Get it.
Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing
I don't know why I put off getting this for long. I mean, it's good. It's fast, energetic, and just sporadic as hell. I'm diggin' it a lot.
The Wake Of Magellan
If I was forced to, I could probably listen to the combo of "Underture/The Wake Of Magellan" over and over again. Those two songs connected is just incredible. The rest of the album isn't too shabby either (scratch that, it's great), but those two songs together...whoa.
Yeah, it doesn't fit the theme or whatever. I got this awhile back just for kicks, since I really enjoy NWA. This whole album is a trip, it really is. Eazy-E is the fucking man. It's a bit top heavy (what rap album isn't really?), but the tracks that hit it home (Eazy-Duz-It, Nobody Move, Boyz-N-the Hood) are just fucking classics of the genre IMO. Also, "We Want Eazy" is hilariously awesome for some reason, it's gotta be the crowd.
