|Year In Reviews|
So here are some reviews from '09 that stuck out in my head for one
reason or another. I'm sure theres a lot more, but this is all I could
think of at the moment. What are some of your favorite 09 reviews?
|1||Do Make Say Think|
Author: Alex Silveri
One of my favorite writers on the site reviewing one of the best post rock
albums of the year. Beautifully written and an all around great review.
Author: John Hanson
A concept review of a demo album no one has ever heard of. Genius.
I can't read a word of this review, but 27 pos' tell it all.
Viva La Vida
Author: Caleb McAlpine
Mr. Waior's 50th review (I think) and he gave a Coldplay album a 5 (zomgz
wtf!), but a nice personal review made for a great one.
|5||Minus The Bear |
Into the Mirror EP
His first and only review came out quite nice, and for a single to one of my most
anticipated albums of 2010.
|6||The Fall of Troy|
In the Unlikely Event
Cirq's burst onto the review scene brings the lulz.
YES A MASTODON GUITAR SOLO
|8||Circle Takes the Square|
As The Roots Undo
Experimental Chaotic Screamo
Petitioning the Empty Sky
I don't no where this guy went, but he wrote a string of 2.5 reviews for popular
sputnik bands/albums. This one obviously hit me the most as it's my favorite
Converge album. I guess this took some balls because he grabbed a shitton of
negs, but funny nonetheless.
Yeah I put my own review on my own 'Favorite reviews' list, big whoop wanna
fight about it? But seriously, I was checking out Native's myspace and saw my
review quoted not once, but twice and was very proud of my little review.
Probably one of my favorite Sputnik moments of this year.
Okay so this review isn't on the site anymore (nor is the user as far as I know),
but it contains my single favorite opening sentence in any review ever, and I'm
sure some of you remember it. "So people are always asking me why The
Beatles started making Metal." I lol'd for days.
