|late nights spent being puzzled by sputnik, vol. 1|
a compilation, in no specific order, of things that i fail to comprehend about sputnik culture. i'll make more of these, probably.
Empty Days and Sleepless Nights
no one that i've met in real life can tell me why these guys don't suck. i have no choice but to conclude that all these high ratings are just trollin' and this is basically the big league version of teeheehee rainbow stab.

The Amazing Jeckel Brothers
seriously, have you ever checked the ratings page for every ICP album ever? there isn't a single rating below 2.5. this means that a disturbing amount of people have heard worse than ICP, and if their objectivity ratings are nice, would much rather listen to ICP than most bands.
as much as i dig early 2000s glassjaw, i cannot extrapolate for the life of me why the fuck everyone likes their new stuff. the last 3 months have brought a glassjaw fest for sputnik, and i'm convinced everyone is only into it for nostalgic purposes. all of the post-2005 glassjaw sounds the same, and while it sounds alright, it sounds like a potentially awesome band's debut album... and then you remember that glassjaw's old stuff was legend by comparison and is getting worse ratings. wat
my favorite trophy scars LP has the worst rating. seriously, sputnik?
The Human Equation
don't get me wrong, i fucking love this album and i don't care much for any other of ayreon's stuff... the fact that some 200~ people are fucking gay enough to agree with me in liking this rock opera epic is... wat
The Infinite Et Cetera
i'm not really picking on lower definition here, because they're not atrocious or anything and i'd probably stand to see them live... but honestly, why does this site insist on giving awesome ratings to these post-hardcore bands that play music that hasn't sounded original or interesting since 2005?

i have never seen any hate for post-rock on this site, ever. i have also never seen excessive amounts of hype for any post-rock. there seems to be an inexplicable, unsaid consensus that post-rock is just 'pretty cool' all across the board.
everyone loves radiohead. this probably isn't limited to sputnik in any stretch, but holy shit. this band could claim themselves as monarchy of the most serene republic of radiohead and half of sputnik would move there.
Marrow of the Spirit
an obscene amount of people with a hard on for incredibly boring black metal.

you're all closet pop punk fans. it's really cute.
|ICP: A band and a fanbase so incredibly interesting and shockingly terrible, that the world cant help but be enamored by.|
Defeater: Haven't listened yet, but am expecting a lot due to the fact that my friend can't shut up about them.
Radiohead: I would move to the Reupublic of Radiohead.
|I fucking love pop-punk, what the hell are you getting at?|
|Haha, this list is fucking awesome. Sputnik is a site built on an incredible amount of contradictions |
|im an open pop-punk fan man. it's like my fave type of punk duh|
|oh shit yall we've got a hype killer on our hands. |
|Slow morning on the sput so your lists are getting trolled.|
1. although not my cup of tea (listening to it for the first time as I'm typing this) is far from bad.
8. you could say the same thing for half the people that listen to our local alt radio station...
2. no argument, bad shit is bad.
|i hate this user|
|9 is such a good band. It's not supposed to be just black metal, there's alot of folk as well which is why it seems slower.|
|I'm with Hep and Dante. Look at my fucking profile pic for fuck's sake.|
|your description/reason/bullshit about one is a big contradiction. nice job?|
|@omnipanzer that wasn't much of a troll. this list was more of a troll, given that defeater isn't actually atrocious and i'm really quite down with pop punk|
|nah, i could hardly think of 10 things to put on this list. also i actually like sputnik now, despite my tiny hate following.|
|youre too leet for sputnik man|
far too leet
