Sonata Arctica Reckoning Night
Iron Maiden Somewhere in Time
Sonata Arctica Winterheart's Guild
Sonata Arctica just keep on building upon and refining their sound with all of their first three albums. Silence fixed many of the problems that Ecliptica faced, and this one works on some of the issues of Silence. I can listen to this all the way through without even cringing too much, which for power metal sure is something. Two problems face this album, and it is the same two problems that everything they made prior to this one also had. 1) The ballad-like feel of some songs is just way too cheesy and melodramatic. I don't think they need to be aggressive all the time or anything, but they can't write a soft song without it sounding like i
Freddie Gibbs and The World's Freshest The Tonite Show
A fluid mixtape that doesn't drag on one bit. At 10 songs, it's just enough to keep its
listeners a mix of satisfied and amazed. Freddie sounds much more like his classic self here
than on Pinata, probably because the beats are far more traditional and more like what he's
used to rapping over. He sounds more old-school on this. The beats are nothing like what
Madlib contributed to Pinata; they are quicker and more to the point. While Madlib's often
jazzy production would go in several different directions, The World's Freshest goes down a
much more straight line. I recommend this to anyone who a
Iron Maiden Powerslave
The definition of a metal classic. My personal favorite Iron Maiden album. This is one of those few records that doesn't seem to lose its momentum throughout its whole duration. Bruce Dickinson showcases some of the best vocals in the genre. Sam Harris' basslines are audible and distinguishable from the rhythm guitar, making the listen more interesting. Just listen to this album. Show it to anyone indifferent toward the metal genre. it's perfect.
Iron Maiden Piece of Mind
Sonata Arctica Silence
This album is much better than their debut Ecliptica. The synthesizers feel better placed,
even if they do sound a bit cheesy still. Kakko's vocals fit the songs more for the most
part. The production has improved. Their songwriting has some form of variation now, whereas
with the first album every song felt structured together like bricks. The problem still
remains with the cheesiness. The keyboards at times feel awkwardly placed, the voice samples
at the beginning of one song just seems totally out of place for the genre, and there are
too many sickeningly sweet ballads. I would give this a 3.

  • BringMeABrick "Of course" because we always seem to be finding the same music at the same time lol xP I rarely cry to music (or anything else lol), too. Having something emotional to relate the song to definitely helps. And no, I haven't, but I'll get on it. There's just been tons of other stuff I've been listening to lately :P
