It's a cover, but it's the only cover of Pink Floyd I like, this time even more than the original.
|2||The Acacia Strain|
Smoke Ya Later
Heavy, heavy, and heavy are the only words needed. Oh, and the lyrics rule.
There's just something about the opening that sets the whole song up perfectly. One of the best melancholic songs ever.
|4||The Agony Scene|
We Bury Our Dead at Dawn
I love the suffering in this song.
|5||All That Remains|
Just a great metal song, the embodiment of what metal should be.
Calm, mellow, slit your wrists depressive. Some of the most natural lyrics I've ever heard.
Catchy, insanely so. And the closing lyrics are powerful.
There's just something about the first two verses.
Cat's in the Cradle
This song just has personal meaning.
Sin & Sacrifice
5 minutes of barely controlled chaos, perfectly done.
Man of Constant Sorrow
This should need no explanation.
Again, this is a classic and shouldn't need to be explained.
|14||Explosions in the Sky|
Beautiful, cheerfully depressing post rock.
The time changes, the talent, the skill, this is everything tech-metal should be. Also catchy as hell, something not seen too much in said genre.
Powerful, epic, beautiful, crushing. If you haven't heard it, go listen to it.
|17||Funeral for a Friend|
The lyrics just strike a nerve with me, such a sad song.
|18||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
It starts off so oppressive, only to hit some of the most uplifting moments in music ever at around 9 and 21 minute marks.
|19||The Dead Flag Blues|
Bonus points for the spoken intro, just a perfect song.
|20||Goo Goo Dolls|
poppy and depressive, great soft rock.
|21||Green Milk From the Planet Orange|
Concrete City Breakdown
Post/Prog rock with a punk-ish vibe. Nothing short of perfect, the highlight is about 13 minutes in.
Choppy prog rock with an almost metal edge to the guitar lines. The climax at the end of the song is insane.
|23||When Every Colour Turns Black|
more proggy post rock, the song structure is insane and is one of the most rewarding songs I've ever listened to.
The lyrics in the bridge are some of the best I've read.
A weakness for odd time signatures, 5 is my favorite. This song is in 5/4.
These Colours Don't Run
I like the new, slow Maiden more than the old.
One of the best country songs ever, so regretful and sad.
Would You Go With Me
Happier country, I love his voice and the energy in the song
Simple and insane catchy, also happy.
The Perfect End
Has quite possibly the best intro I've ever heard.
|32||Lamb of God|
The lyrics make the song what it is.
|33||Lolipop Lust Kill|
Knee Deep in the Dead
From their first album, not the second. Pure evil fun.
calming ambiance done right.
|35||maudlin of the Well|
The Blue Ghost/Shedding Qliphoth
|36||Stones of Octobers Sobbing|
One of the more interesting metal songs, the trumpets are a great idea.
|37||Mindless Self Indulgence|
I work in the service industry...
Personal reasons, the lyrics are some of his best and the feel of the song is incredible.
Love the 2 3 4 at the end of the song.
Again, I love odd time signatures and changes. And this band is just plain weird.
|41||Nine Inch Nails|
Hurt (Quiet Version)
Different from Cash's remake, Reznor's rendition is more self hating, but equally as good for different reasons.
Maybe I'm a Lion
All the music in FF8 is great, this song is just so energy packed.
|43||The Pax Cecilia|
|44||A Perfect Circle|
They should have stuck with the quieter sound. This and Blue are my favorites, and everything else they do doesn't quite reach the same level.
Thought Crime Spree
the guitars from 1:10-1:16 and 1:50 til the end of the song.
Alien Hip Hop
Quirky and unpredictable prog. The arrhythmic opening is the best.
|47||Protest the Hero|
|48||Turn Soonest to the Sea|
The outro really makes the rest of the song what it is. Just try to resist singing along.
Has the most epic closing lines ever, not to mention the beautiful piano afterwards.
Quiet and sad. The lyrics are very poetic.
|51||Stein Um Stein|
Best moment is the first time the chorus hits. So not expecting the heaviness.
Forever and Ever, Amen
great classic country
That's My Job
The used Dark Forces/Teutonic Witch
doooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom. No other explanation needed.
Dancing For Rain
Harsh and painful, some of the most true lyrics ever.
Something's Got to Give
The intro riff is one of the best ever made. Oh, and his voice is crazy good.
Not the version with the chick from Evanescence. The original version with just the singer, good acoustic rock.
Broken Into Little Pieces
More post rock... another weakness.
|60||Sins of Omission|
Eager for the Fray
Another great intro, the whole song gives off a vibe of having lost everything.
|62||Sleepytime Gorilla Museum|
When he starts screaming about 6-7 minutes in.
|63||Sleep is Wrong|
Odd, disjointed, I love the explosion at the end of the song.
Rather tranquil and serene melody carried by someone who manages to pull it off and sound evil anyways.
Emo done right.
Again, emo done right.
Fast and energetic.
Staind when they were great, this song just inspires anger.
Happy is a Yuppie Word
The Artist in the Ambulance
Take It All
|75||World Inferno/Friendship Society|
Zen and the Art of Breaking Everything In This Room
