Recent acquisitions, recent listens. Working on a semi-random listen of music, if you would like to see it, head to: www.last.fm/user/arrell
1Atheist
Unquestionable Presence


Pretty cool. 'Tis solid progressive tech-death metal.
2Behemoth
Satanica


Alright I guess. Not love at first hearing though. "Chant for Eschaton 2000" is a cool song.
3Gordian Knot
Gordian Knot


User Txus just loled at me for comparing the band to King Crimson (Belew era). I think they sound similar, lots of wankerous riffs, ethereal, weird sounds.
4Kate Bush
Hounds of Love


Nice. Various melodies I would like to plagiarise for my upcoming album (*snort).
5Life of Agony
Soul Searching Sun


Average alternative metal. All the songs sound the same.
6Marduk
Plague Angel


Rather noisy.
7 Martina McBride
Evolution


Don't think Sputnik has McBride on its database. Average to good modern country.
8Meshuggah
Destroy Erase Improve


I'm not seeing the thrill in the one chord played in a crazy time pattern. Bald singers suck, except Maynard.
9Napalm Death
Scum


Nice, very nice. Hard to describe... can't believe these guys are Englanders, didn't think such tea drinkers were capable of making music like this. This music belongs in the gulags of Russia and such.
10Obituary
Cause of Death


Nothing really tickles my fancies here.
11Patti Smith
Horses


Mmm... meh. Yeah, just meh.
12Ramones
Ramones


Blitzkrieg Bop ftw. ohsosimplemusic.
13Shania Twain
Come on Over


Pretty awesome. What a babe as well. Was racking my brains out before, deciding whether to listen to the original version or the international version (which is remixed to a more poppy sound). Went with the original, and am not complaining much.
14Sol
Let There Be A Massacre


Thanks to Rasputin. Haven't given this more than one listen yet. "Boginki" is a nice track.
15Testament
The New Order


Solid.
16The Clash
London Calling


Title track or bust. Haven't given this more than the one listen yet. Kinda ridiculous how the local radios only play "London Calling" and "Rock the Casbah". As a result, those were the only two songs I had ever heard from the band.
17Tracy Chapman
Tracy Chapman


Digging this. "Baby Can I Hold You" is a sweet song. Great singer.
18Victor Wooten
A Show of Hands


The cheesy singing is cheesy. Epic bass work of course. Had been hoping for more of a funk band sound, rather than just solo bass.
19 D12
Devil's Night


Eh, not bad. Best songs are the singles that were released from the album.
20Public Enemy
Fear of a Black Planet


Nice, nice. Doesn't sound like any other hiphop album that I've heard. 'Alternative' if you will.
21RZA
RZA as Bobby Digital in Stereo


Also nice. Really like his rapping style.
