|Albums I'm Currently Listening To|
Just felt like doing a list of albums I'm listening to or loving right now.
|1||The Devin Townsend Project|
I'm loving this one. This album is immense, it's everything I love about the heavy side of Devin's music, and metal in general, really.
|2||The Devin Townsend Project|
Loving this one, as well. Also immense, but it's everything beautiful music should be, in my humble opinion. I wish I could make something this atmospheric and peaceful.
Effigies and Epitaphhs
Only listened to this once, and I need to listen to it more, really absorb it, but I'm really digging their style. The atmosphere their music brings is to my liking.
Fear of a Blank Planet
Great album. Not new to this one, but revisiting it has been great. "Anesthetize" is likely my favorite track, when I saw them live with Coheed not long ago, them playing that song really stood out in my mind.
Sounds of a Playground Fading
I like it. I think they've gone in a good direction, and I want to hear more of the electronic sounds in their music. Also, many feel negatively toward Anders voice these days, but I like it. I especially enjoyed the mostly sang song "Ropes".
This is just an amazing album, another I'm revisiting. This was the first Opeth album I ever got into. "Moonlapse Vertigo" and "The Moor" were the first songs by them to truly stick with me.
Foo Fighters have managed to put out quality songs consistently their entire career, even if you think of any particular album as a hiccup, in my opinion, every single album has contained some new Foo Fighters songs I'll remember forever. They're just quality rock, for me.
|8||The Black Dahlia Murder|
Fantastic. I need to give this more listens before I can decide where it ranks among their discography, but I enjoyed it a lot. And I liked some of the things they tried they haven't really done before.
Dark, heavy, evil sounding metal. Their guitar tone is monstrous. I definitely need to explore more of their discography.
|Finally got In Flames. Hoping to work it into my schedule early this coming week.|
|good shit, I've been digging 2 alot|
|Two is great, and very easy to listen to repeatedly. Although, it really makes me want to space out and drift away.|
|1,5,8 were awful|
|Holy shit dude, I am so fucking in love with Deconstruction. Haven't really given Ghost a decent listen yet but god damn that album may become one of my all time favourites. It's the perfect balance and epitome of everything I love about music - I can't get enough. I don't seem to get all the fuss around Ghost... It's ambient music, how good can it possibly be?|
|1 > 2|
|both are 5.0 awesome tho|
|Deconstruction is everything I love in heavy music. It's just what I NEED when it comes to that. But Ghost IS amazing, it's everything I love in soft music. It just depends on if you love the two kinds of music. And I wouldn't describe it as purely"ambient".|
|3 is great.|
|Yeah, I stumbled upon 3 by lucky accident. So glad I did, hidden gem of a band, right there.|
|4 and 6 are in my top 20 of all time, devin townsend any good?|
|I'd definitely say so. He's my favorite artist, really. Give him a try. If you do, I'd recommend... This is tough. I'd go to Amazon and sample Terria, Synchestra, Ocean Machine, Addicted and Deconstruction. He can be kinda all over the place, but that's a sampling of my favorite works of his there. See which one sounds best to you, then go from there, I'd say.|
