  • CamiloG Congratulations on Portugal reaching the semifinals buddy, happy for you.
    June 30 05:45 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist I thought we were buds? what do you have against my evangelion pic
    June 30 02:44 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Also check my pitch list and pitch something (it's my 2nd to last one)
    June 29 05:03 PM
  • ArsMoriendi I might, if you check those Zappa albums :P or at least Joe's Garage or Apostrophe
    June 29 04:41 PM
  • CamiloG Hey buddy thanks for sharing. I felt a serious Nick Drake vibe there in some sections. Very nice rec
    June 29 11:09 AM
  • claygurnz Fair enough haha, I dig that Lanegan song man I'm gonna check that album.
    June 29 06:19 AM
  • Davil667 Will do for sure bro. And if you feel like it just give the Dizzy Mizz Lizzy album another spin too, I feel you might enjoy it. The record is very special to me. I've made it a persoanl mission to spread the word :]
    June 29 05:54 AM
  • Davil667 Good stuff Dan, thx for the rec. The mellow sound and the slightly sad atmosphere in combination with the classy album cover got me instantly. Very appealing. To return the favor check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCR7EtkduqU
    June 29 04:53 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Classic tune Dan, what have you got left to check in his discog?

    June 28 07:24 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie i'll check out this album ;)
    June 28 05:22 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie nice song, i see you wrote a review about the guy
    June 28 05:21 PM
  • Rawmeeth38 Good stuff. He has a great voice.
    June 28 02:54 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Sweet Oblivion
    June 28 02:53 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Only 1 Screaming Trees album, but I wasn't really much of a fan.
    June 28 02:47 PM
  • ArsMoriendi It was cool, I also listened to his duet with PJ Harvey which I liked even more.
    June 28 02:41 PM
  • zakalwe I'm gutted Dan dude. Same old England. Pathetic.
    June 28 09:56 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist So i finally listened to the opener for The Smiths and its mind blowing, Reel Around The Fountain is great. Havent listened to the rest though because it was like 3 o clock
    June 26 07:42 PM
  • CamiloG Oh man that's way to late for you. Yeah man, I'm doing an MBA but fortunately I'm on vacations too. I'm lucky because the last Euro match is at 2pm on my local time and the final is at 7pm.
    June 26 01:32 PM
  • CamiloG Of course buddy I'm looking forward to it. Despite the fact that we got eliminated by Chile, I'll be rooting for them. Who would you like to win the trophy?
    June 26 10:58 AM
  • CamiloG Hey buddy, congratulations for that agonic win against Croatia
    June 25 05:33 PM
  • oWhoadYo Hey man, glad you liked it! We're going on tour next month and will be having a new album released soon
    June 25 03:36 AM
  • CamiloG Of course buddy I suffered the game a lot, I'm very sad about it but what can I say, that's how football is. I'm glad that Portugal made it to the next round. It was better to face Croatia than England in my opinion, how do you feel about it?
    June 23 08:15 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie What kind of metal do you like ? Let's start from that, i'm pretty sure there is a ceetain kind of metal you enjoy listening time to time and i'm pretty sure i've got some recs to propose
    June 23 04:41 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Why is that ? Maybe you're not checking the right bands.
    June 21 04:38 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Not a big heavy metal fan ?
    June 21 04:18 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie I'm fine man, just stuffed with all the studying i've got to do these days.
    June 21 04:17 PM
  • manosg Only thing that bothered me was that they didn't win the ring with coach Blatt who I hold in very high regard. But at the end of the day, it's only a detail.
    June 20 02:29 PM
  • manosg Watched it today and enjoyed it thoroughly. Felt good that conventional basketball won over an incredible shooting team. Game could have won either way but at the end of the day, the Cavs won a lot of crucial possessions such as offensive rebounds and steals and played a lot of smart basketball on offense. They attacked the basket all game long and didn't settle for the 3point. Attacked Ezeli all game long and left room for Barnes who was ice cold.
    June 20 02:28 PM
  • manosg Hell yeah! You watched the game, Dan?
    June 20 12:24 PM
  • Davil667 Hey Dan, finally checked out your list, way too late obviously :] Very nice indeed. I know a buch of the albums there but I?m way to unfamiliar with the lyrics to contribute to this. Looking forward to part 2, maybe I?ll get a shot there. I was stunned by Air tbh, I know the first 4 tracks quite well but had no idea it's this band. Great chill album, will def get it soon. Thx a lot for the rec!
    June 19 05:17 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie where's the m/ in your pie chart ? ;P
    June 19 05:01 PM
  • CamiloG What a terrible humiliation. Poor people, lol
    June 19 10:35 AM
  • CamiloG I can't believe man, that penalty miss from Ronaldo though. It will be all or nothing against Hungary.
    June 18 06:35 PM
  • CamiloG Yeah, no matter the rival it is going to be a very tough game for us in the semifinals. Regardless to Portugal's match, I think the shout will be to share your joy buddy. Cheers man!
    June 18 02:53 PM
  • CamiloG We have to wait for the result between Mexico and Chile, from that match comes out our rival. I'll be rooting for Portugal as well buddy
    June 18 12:26 PM
  • CamiloG Hey buddy. There are no words to describe how much I suffered that match against Peru. Fortunately we made it to the semifinals
    June 17 10:16 PM
  • manosg Hay Dan, I've only checked The Wild Hunt and I liked it a lot. However, for some reason, I've never checked any of his other albums. Probably due to his similarity to Bod Dylan. Is the new single any good?
    June 17 02:06 PM
  • manosg Whoa, that's very helpful. Gonna use the pike checker for sure. Yngwie is indeed a bit weird and high-maintenance haha. But at the same time he's released some quality material. Regarding one song of his, I'd recommend "Queen in Love".
    June 16 03:43 PM
  • manosg Oh yeah, I think it was Electric Tears that you recommended me to check and I liked it a lot. On the contrary, Population Override didn't do much for me even though it's one of his most praised albums. It's impossible though to keep up with the man's albums so I'm sure a lot of stuff must be flying under the radar. Guthrie Govan is also good. Have you ever check Yngwie Malmsteen?
    June 16 02:45 PM
  • manosg A good album of that style with emotional substance is Jason Becker's Perspective if you're ever in the mood.
    June 16 02:32 PM
  • manosg I like the fact that he doesn't try to impress just by playing fast and I appreciate the fact that he's trying to write songs. But overall, as I wrote in my soundoff, I just feel like I'm in a guitar workshop. It just feels that the album lacks substance by not being emotionally engaging. Maybe a guitar player would appreciate this more.
    June 16 02:29 PM
  • manosg How did you find it, man? Satriani is definitely talented but Surfing With The Alien lacks any emotional substance imo.
    June 16 02:08 PM
  • BMDrummer mirage and huevos are the only ones i really dig, after that is eh
    June 16 01:15 PM
  • BMDrummer yea man i don't doubt it, also i put on up on the sun for first time since last summer :]
    June 16 11:45 AM
  • manosg Yup, totally free.
    June 16 11:26 AM
  • manosg I participate every year, along with Sputnik user Yujos who is also at a very high level regarding his knowledge about NBA players. We compete against guys from all over the globe. The draft is each year, a couple of days before the start of the regular season of the NBA. If you're interested in participating, I can give you a shout close to the draft date.
    June 16 10:42 AM
  • manosg It's a very fun game but a bit complex at first. The nature of the game is the following: you create a team of 13 NBA players by participating in a draft with users from all over the world and as these NBA players accumulate their stats during the regular season of the NBA, you win points. You get points, for the total number of blocks, assists, rebounds, etc. It's a very fun game, especially if knowledgeable about the NBA, which you are.
    June 16 10:39 AM
  • BMDrummer love superfuzz, but never really gone any further
    June 16 10:34 AM
  • Rowan5215 I'll give it a shot my man, want to give everyone else a fair chance!
    June 16 08:50 AM
  • manosg Definitely. It's a shame for such a talent to be just a high volume-low efficiency type of player. George's comeback was incredible. I still haven't watched his injury and I probably never will. One of the best two-way players at the NBA right now. Dan, I can't remember if I have asked you already but have you ever played Fantasy Basketball on ESPN?
    June 16 08:03 AM
  • manosg Take Steph Curry, for example. He had all those ankle injuries but with his style of play, he managed to stay away from them and be quite durable.
    June 16 07:41 AM
  • manosg Agreed but leg injuries and especially knees are the worse. I'm afraid that Eric Bledsoe is on the same path as Rose. Don't get me wrong, I loved Rose's game and how he attacked the tall guys in the paint but this style of play is bound to get you injured. Begins with an ankle sprain and then it becomes worse because you can't jump and land the way you used to. So knees are the next victim, unfortunately.
    June 16 07:40 AM
  • manosg Indeed, they just don't seem to gel well together. The thing is, Rose is not an easy player to be traded due to his contract and injury history; personally, I wouldn't take him even on a discount. On the other hand Butler is an incredible number 2 option on a contender and it would take a very large offer to get him out of Chicago. But at this point, it's almost sure that one of the two won't be a Bull next season.
    June 16 06:17 AM
  • CamiloG Great idea man, it was very tough lol. Cheers buddy!
    June 15 11:50 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Hey bud check my amazon pick ups list. Youll be happy ;D
    June 15 11:29 PM
  • manosg I grew up liking the Spurs, then hated them for being unspectacular during the early 2000 but now I respect them more than any NBA franchise. They're the blueprint for how a team should be run. Regarding the Bulls, I think the new season will be interesting. I'm waiting to see whether they make a couple of conservative trades or blow up the whole thing and start from scratch with Mirotic, Portis, etc.
    June 15 03:52 PM
  • manosg Yeah I'm a Lakers fan. Not the best time to be one because of all the tanking during the last three years but I hope this stops this year. Seattle not having a team is a shame, really. Can't get more '90s than grunge and Supersonics. These guys were something different back then. Along with Orlando Magic, they were the hottest new team and we were all rooting for them. Now that was swagger!
    June 15 03:51 PM
  • manosg Same here. I hope the Cavs win the ring because the Warriors are showing too much swag and it makes me dislike them. Remind me Dan, which team to you support in the NBA?
    June 15 03:09 PM
  • Davil667 Great to hear bro! And yeah, will def watch the game now. Should be a safe win for France. No more sh!t predictions by me I hope ;]
    June 15 02:30 PM
  • manosg Hey Dan, all is good. How about you? Is school over yet? I think the Warriors are going to seal the deal on Friday, even though Cleveland is strong in their court. Regardless of the outcome, Draymond Green has managed to make me like Lebron. The dude is a straight up coward thug. He keeps hitting his opponents at the same spot "by accident" and always throws his legs when he's fouled. I just wish the league had a Charles Oakley or an Alvin Robertson. Someone who would make him stop that s***.
    June 15 02:22 PM
  • Davil667 Ah, that game didn't go too well yesterday. Sorry for my s*** prediction... Hope your exam today went better than the game :]
    June 15 02:20 PM
  • Idleness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmAKthDadpY
    June 14 06:28 PM
  • CamiloG It was a draw after all... Portugal has a lot of thing to improve in order to move to the next phase. Based on what I saw earlier from Hungary it seems like they are the major threat of the group
    June 14 05:11 PM
  • CamiloG Well man, though I think that Iceland can't be underestimated as they've been improving their game since the past World Cup Qualifiers, I think Portugal will dominate the match and hopefully they'll win it 2-0.
    June 14 01:57 PM
  • CamiloG Yeah, it was an excellent game for the first place of the group. Which are your predictions for Portugal's debut?
    June 14 01:41 PM
  • CamiloG Incredible what happened between Peru and Brazil, absurd
    June 12 10:54 PM
  • BMDrummer oh yea man i don't come on nearly as often as i used to, just not my thing anymore i guess. still jam meat puppets regularly tho :]
    June 12 02:15 PM
  • CamiloG It was an unbelievable decision taken by Pekerman to play with an entire emergent team. I think he was over confident or that he underestimated Costa Rica. Now the most probable thing is that we're going to face Brazil in the next round
    June 12 01:09 PM
  • TVC15 Aww your pic of Layne Staley simultaneously made me super happy and super sad
    June 11 05:07 PM
  • CamiloG Me neither buddy but I gotta admit that I can't help feeling happy. I saw yesterday's match between them and Venezuela and it was very intense. Suarez' reaction was priceless I think he earned a suspension.
    June 10 12:26 PM
  • EasterInTheBatcave https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYC-ms7EndM : )
    June 10 10:34 AM
  • CamiloG Sure thing man, I'm so hyped fo the Euro too. I totally love that tournament and I think that this year's one is going to be very competitive, you can't be 100% sure of which teams are going to go to the next phase because most of them can give a surprise. Also I totally get your point about Peru, but I've seen their games of the World Cup qualification and I don't see them winning that match against Brazil, and I also share your opinion that Dunga's management of the team has been questionable.
    June 9 12:35 PM
  • CamiloG Of course man! I think that Brazil is going to win the group and Ecuador will be second. So our next game will be Colombia - Ecuador because I'm positive that we're going to win our group. What do you think?
    June 9 11:39 AM
  • Mythodea So, no huh? Well, it would have been interesting.
    June 8 07:47 PM
  • Mythodea I can't recall if I've asked you again this question. Given your name, are you the musician who playes with Anathema? Please, don't kid me.
    June 8 05:21 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Ok haha
    June 8 01:11 PM
  • Rawmeeth38 Yeah man, its a classic for me. Nothing quite like it. That atmosphere...
    June 8 12:40 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Have you listened to In Rainbows yet bud? Also, i thought you already listened to Ok Cpmuter?
    June 7 07:40 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Thanks :p . Its funny rippa was all like 'your review wasnt that good tbh' in the thread were i recommended it for feature and eother his comment gotd or he retracted it lmao
    June 7 03:05 PM
  • CamiloG That's good to know man, honestly I think Portugal can pull off a very good surprise this time around, they are going under the radar from the media and that's a very influential factor because the pressure will be concentrated on other teams, that and the fact that there are quite a few great players and an excellent mixture of young talents and top class veterans such as Pepe, Ronaldo, Nani and Quaresma
    June 7 02:30 PM
  • CamiloG You are right man, though I watched yesterday's game between Argentina and Chile and I have to say I'm very disappointed of Chile's debut. Copa America is a very tough tournament, buy I think the favorites are Argentina. How are your expectations for Portugal in the Euro bud?
    June 7 12:19 PM
  • CamiloG Lots of hopes and expectations actually man, our golden generation of players is starting to fade out, it is now or never lol.
    June 7 11:51 AM
  • CamiloG I'm from Colombia bud. I asked because your name and last name are kind of common in my country, but then I saw the "Dias" in your profile and I assumed you speak Portuguese. Here we write the "Dias" with Z.
    June 7 11:35 AM
  • CamiloG Hey man, are you from South America?
    June 7 11:24 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Dude i got my review featured :D
    June 6 10:06 PM
  • Titan c'mon bro....thick skin....all in good fun.....i apologize if my humor is distasteful
    June 6 02:50 PM
  • Nagrarok I'm doing great, though as you may have noticed I don't frequent the site all that much anymore. I'm not too familiar with Dino Jr., which I have been wanting to remedy for some time.
    June 6 11:59 AM
  • Rawmeeth38 What'd ya think of spiderland?
    June 5 07:41 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Thanks! Ya its a bit... long.
    June 4 02:36 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist I made a Songs For The Deaf review if you wanna check it put :P
    June 4 12:41 PM
  • manosg Indeed you do. I was like that during my high school years but without the decision of cutting them out. It gets really frustrating at times but we have to persevere. College/university is a much better experience but overall, life is tough and what really changes is us. With experience, we learn to deal with difficulties better.
    June 3 03:14 PM
  • zakalwe :D he is a legend though. He's old school, has a bit of passion and love for the game.
    June 3 02:30 PM
  • zakalwe Absolute disgrace. We wouldn't happen to have a chance of playing you in the quarter finals by any chance? Dirty bastard trying to take out our best player.
    June 3 02:14 PM
  • manosg Hey Dan, just saw your message. I'm fine dude, trying to cope with everyday s*** and idiotic neighbors but apart from that everything's fine haha. How about you?
    June 3 03:48 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Nothing much, just rejamming songs which i think is a 4.5 now
    June 3 03:09 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist Hi bud
    June 2 11:14 PM
  • zakalwe https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KaBdajHOsSM
    June 2 05:08 PM
  • zakalwe The problem with England is it doesn't matter how s***e we are I can't help but have a glimmer of hope we'll go all the way lol. Our defence is far too shaky. We should get out of the qualifiers but will be knocked out in the quarters I reckon.
    June 2 02:56 PM
  • zakalwe Ha Dan V Zak. Of course dude. You're without Ronaldo, nobody is going to want to be injured it'll be a drab affair I reckon.
    June 2 02:38 PM
  • zakalwe Ello Dan dude. I bought the one everyone harps on about when it was released and absolutely loved it but haven't spun it in years. Takk was a bit of a soundtrack to my 20s, enjoyed their last one as well. I've been told they are one of the greatest live acts of all time but I've never seen them. You digging?
    June 2 01:58 PM
  • onionbubs was just on clays page and saw your planning on checking ok computer. regarding radiohead, kid a is their most complete album. id advise that first, at least it was the album that made me really dig radiohead (i heard ok computer first but it took some time to really click).
    May 31 01:38 PM
  • Davil667 Ah, sounds a bit stressful, hope everything went well so far with the exam. Fingers crossed :] Never heard Dinosaur Jr tbh but they are quite popular here on sput so I'll probably check them out, the release of the new album seems to be a good starting point. And yeah, def make this road trip, gets the head clear for sure.
    May 28 05:03 AM
  • Davil667 Hey Dan bro! Just to pick up on your question in the Sunhouse thread :] I'm feeling pretty good atm. Nice weather, still a week of vacation up ahead and I'm going to a festival this weekend starting this afternoon. So what about you? Any upcoming concerts?
    May 27 07:19 AM
  • claygurnz Haha yeah I count them among my favourite bands, although I liked Radiohead before I jouned sput.
    May 25 03:33 PM
  • claygurnz Do you dig Deftones or Radiohead dude? You can't be a full Sputnik member without debating those two bands daily.
    May 25 01:05 PM
  • zakalwe Woah! Thanks for letting me know dan my man. I see they're playing London in Novemmber as well. Result!!!!!
    May 24 12:52 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Will keep an ear out for it dude
    May 24 11:03 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Can't believe Mascis just keeps on going, the stuff since the reunion has been really good
    May 24 10:53 AM
  • zakalwe Cool!
    May 15 08:39 AM
  • zakalwe Rings a vague bell mate. What can I expect?
    May 15 07:45 AM
  • Rawmeeth38 Really hard to choose one but I'd probably go with "Tremor Christ" or "Immortality" with "Corduroy" not far behind. Hbu?
    May 11 06:18 PM
  • Rawmeeth38 Agreed, it flows beautifully. Each song is just one chapter of the big picture. That being said though, I think "After the Flood" is the clear standout. One of my favorite songs of all time.
    May 11 05:50 PM
  • Rawmeeth38 Definitely man, that album is stunning. Nothing like it. What's your favorite track?
    May 11 05:39 PM
  • Rawmeeth38 Nice Vitalogy rating!
    May 11 05:28 PM
  • claygurnz I dunno man, finding it pretty average so far :(
    May 11 02:05 PM
  • claygurnz Cool, I got some spare time so I'll give it a listen now.
    May 11 01:39 PM
  • claygurnz The album called What about Frank? It's not on spotify or youtube bro, where can I find it?
    May 11 01:33 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman haha dude, how old are you?
    May 2 05:24 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman haha you've never seen the Fairly Odd Parents dude?
    May 1 05:13 PM
  • claygurnz Ok dude, will do. I'll start from the beginning and let you know where I'm at and what I think in about a week.
    April 25 03:24 PM
  • claygurnz Are they alt-rock?
    April 25 12:22 PM
  • ArsMoriendi No dude it's fine those posts were awesome and I agree that Died and Get Born Again and the like sound like Aic was going to make a heavy beast of an album. It's too bad that they didn't.
    April 24 02:24 PM
  • ArsMoriendi What's your AiC theory?
    April 22 05:33 PM
  • manosg I actually like Beverley as the backcourt complement of Harden haha. With Harden as the main ball handler, you need a 3 and D guy next to him. I think the Rockets just need to find a very good PF that could space the floor, a rim protector and a solid bench. Oh and a good coach too. Not much haha.
    April 9 12:42 PM
  • manosg Oh it's a shame for Harden but this team has been going nowhere this year. Injuries, no effort on defense, weird off-season moves and a total lack of chemistry. I mean, things went sour when they fired McHale at the start of the season after signing him to a new contract! Who does that? I'm not even a fan of McHale but I'd rather kick players' butts than firing a coach that I just signed. Summer is gonna be interesting with all the extra salary cap.
    April 9 10:39 AM
  • manosg Hey Dan, all is well. How about you? I really hope the playoff picture stays as it is atm. I think the East is done and I'd hate to see the Rockets in the playoffs. They're the definition of inconsistency and a truly dysfunctional team that needs a strong shakeup. Especially the Eastern Conference match-ups will be awesome and hard to predict. How do you see things?
    April 9 06:33 AM
  • romulanrancor Yeah bro, defo my favourite grunge band :P
    March 18 12:22 PM

    March 17 10:24 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Cheers Dan, I'll put it on the rec list I put up today and check it out
    March 11 10:22 AM
  • zakalwe Having said that their heart is in the right place I 'spose.
    February 20 01:22 PM
  • zakalwe Nah, they're s***e dan dude. They came on the scene in 2008 or around then. People were saying they were a new 'Clash' or some nonsense. Keep clear my man.
    February 20 01:14 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I remember them a bit from back in the day but never listened to full albums and probably haven't listened to them at all in years - will check 'em out. What's their best stuff?
    February 20 11:11 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Wouldn't have taken you for a massive Lush fan dude
    February 20 10:40 AM
  • SowingSeason No mean spirit perceived, I'm actually glad for the indirect reminder as we had meant to feature the Wolfmother piece this weekend. I just don't want to feature back to back reviews by the same user, which I know you understand. Right now I'm actually trying to figure out why the band submissions aren't working properly.
    February 20 09:00 AM
  • Arcade it'll probably be either The Queen is Dead or Yeezus me thinks, and would definitely be a more personal take on the album than a review.
    February 18 08:34 AM
  • Arcade idk... there's a few albums i've been thinking of, and i'm tossing up between The Queen is Dead, Yeezus, Ride the Lightning, or Appetite for Destruction. you got any ideas on what i should do?

  • Atari well I don't recall reading many of your reviews other than your most recent, but yes, I think you'd definitely have a shot based on the frequency of your writing. you wrote a ton of reviews in 2015 man haha. if it's something you're interested in, I'd say go for it. Of course you'd be expected to review new releases more frequently though
    February 17 02:35 PM
  • Atari you should apply for contributor next time around, I don't recall that you applied during the last promotion cycle
    February 17 02:23 PM
  • Britch2tiger I've heard of Pavement, and definitely been told of their work. I'm waiting until I've come off a mediocre binge before (potentially) rating some excellent-worthy albums.
    February 16 08:35 PM
  • Arcade of course :)
    February 16 07:02 PM
  • Britch2tiger Cool list - I try guy, I try...
    February 15 01:23 AM
  • DoofusWainwright It'll be tough getting into all of it at once, it could all blend into one. You need to check out the songs 'Drop' and 'Have You Forgotten' for sure. Then you've got the Sun Kil Moon stuff, 'Ghosts of the Great Highway' is essential
    February 13 11:28 AM
  • DoofusWainwright I dig all Kozelek - RHP and Sun Kil Moon
    February 13 10:56 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ah. I bet you'd've gotten it if you had, but I guess w/e lol. it's nice to have zero pressure
    February 9 02:38 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thx man. don't remember seeing if you applied...?
    February 9 02:30 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot i assume sowing or someone will answer, but: the results were supposed to be out between last friday and yesterday. but, due to servers being down all weekend, it might have hampered the process. hopefully we'll know... this week?
    February 9 02:02 PM
  • dannyboy89 I need to polish that DP review before releasing it, but I hope I get it finished before this summer.
    February 8 07:42 PM
  • Arcade any reason you didn't apply to be a Contributor?
    February 5 09:09 AM
  • Arcade i did. hoping for the best!
    February 5 08:45 AM
  • zakalwe I skimmed it dude (mad season) and it seems great but it just doesn't seem to carry much weight. I'll invest some time in it.
    February 5 06:42 AM
  • Arcade hey that new Temperance Movement album is pretty tight. surprised because their debut was pretty bland imo
    February 4 10:32 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Been listening to the Lanegan debut, a few more spins and I'm thinking of putting up a 'Field Songs' review, still thinking that's my favourite of his solo albums
    February 4 02:28 PM
  • claygurnz Hey I jammed Dandelion, thought it was really good but not amazing, gave it a 3.5. Still got a 4 average though haha.
    January 28 09:53 PM
  • manosg Sweet. The quality is always there so it's a matter of whether you're reviewing new or older material, I think.
    January 28 02:56 AM
  • Arcade hey sorry didn't get back to yesterday, was busy with Australia Day- glad to see you got the feature though :P
    January 27 12:28 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Yo check this http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/50131/Blue-Oyster-Cult-Secret-Treaties/
    January 26 03:58 PM
  • claygurnz Cool, I'll jam it later or tomorrow and let you know how I feel. Currently jamming Sweet Oblivion by Screaming Trees.
    January 26 10:15 AM
  • manosg Just came in to tell you you were correct with your assesment of the GS/SA game last night. Didn't watch it but the Warriors winning by 30 was something I'd never expect. Let's see how the next matches go.
    January 26 05:37 AM
  • manosg Hey Dan. Sure, why not? I remember us talking about him some time ago so now it's a good time to check his stuff.
    January 24 08:36 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Go in order, it makes the most sense. So start with Frizzle Fry.
    January 22 04:37 PM
  • manosg Not so sure about that, Dan. Surely, they're going to be close but at some point they will need to drop their rhythm a bit and prepare for the playoffs. Steve Kerr said in an interview, that during their 72-10 season, there were games where Bulls were extremely tired but Jordan was so determined to win 70 games that just took over. Can the Warriors do that? I hope they do but I think it's extremely hard even for them.
    January 21 02:18 PM
  • manosg oh man, it's gonna be a great game; a statement game! This Spurs team is built to compete against the Warriors and they're only 2.5 games behind them. If it wasn't for the Warriors' historic run, the Spurs would be mentioned much more often. Do you think the Warriors are going to break the Bulls' record for most wins in a season?
    January 21 12:17 PM
  • zakalwe I was your age if not older when it came out! lol!! It completley slipped under the radar though. I think I still would've loved it if I heard it back then but Gavin Clarke is speaking with some lived experience that hit all manner of levels now.Best album ever dude.
    January 14 03:56 PM
  • zakalwe I tell ya man that album has hit me so hard it's ridiculous. It's brilliant that the sput bros are taking to it. There's just something about it...it's real.
    January 14 03:02 PM
  • zakalwe Hey dude. Yeah where you been is not a great starter. For that particular Dino sound Bug and Living all over me are THE places to start. For a more rounded 'rocking' Dino the comeback album Beyond and my personal fave Farm are the ones to spin.
    January 14 02:47 PM
  • zakalwe Check Sunhouse - crazyontheweekend. Doof has just posted a review of it.Listen to it once and never look back dan dude.
    January 4 02:16 PM
  • manosg Happy new year to you too, dude. Wish you all the best!
    January 1 11:25 AM
  • zakalwe And to you bro. Hope 2016 is one for you to remember for all the right reasons.
    January 1 10:08 AM
  • zakalwe I'm a bit down in the dumps dan dude. Lemmy was the real deal.
    December 29 05:13 AM
  • romulanrancor Happy holidays dude. Yeah, not much though, started listening to superunknown c:
    December 28 05:35 AM
  • zakalwe And to you dude. Hope it was a great one. Round two now round the parents.
    December 26 06:19 AM
  • Arcade you too man :P
    December 25 05:44 PM
  • manosg I think it depends on how the season unfolds on a team chemistry basis. If they manage not to turn against each other because of frustration, he'll stay. Even if he leaves the team, it's not easy to find a better supporting cast. Plus, the best thing that's happened to OKC is that the Warriors are so strong that nobody's gonna blame them if they don't manage to get past Curry and Co. Only thing better is for him is to find a great supporting cast in the Eastern Conference.
    December 24 04:45 PM
  • manosg And OKC is balling at the moment after a relatively slow start. It's gonna be a very interesting year for OKC with Durant's expiring contract and their title aspirations.
    December 24 02:20 PM
  • manosg Happy holidays friend, wish you all the best! Definitely been looking forward to the Cavs vs GSW and my Lakers vs Clippers. How about you?
    December 24 01:14 PM
  • manosg OK, gonna check one of the two at some point and let you know, bud!
    December 23 04:44 AM
  • manosg Sounds cool, Dan. Should I check his highest rated or you suggest another album?
    December 22 03:33 PM
  • manosg Don't think so. Will I like him?
    December 22 01:20 PM
  • manosg Oh yeah, gotta love what Brad Stevens is doing there. It's such a testament that great franchises don't need to tank to contend again and again. You see complimentary pieces like Jae Crowder playing key roles and guys like Isaiah Thomas who wasn't wanted in Sacramento and Phoenix and now is leading the team! I actually voted for him for this year's All Star Game. Boston is seriously a couple of trades away from being a force to be reckoned with.
    December 20 01:47 PM
  • manosg Didn't expect Ellis to take such a back seat for the good of the team and I'm pleasantly surprised. Up to a point, I feel like Indiana is overachieving but overall they're a great organization. Good players, excellent coach (one of the best imo) and it never hurts to have Larry Bird in the front office. Dallas is also overachieving due to their great coach.
    December 20 01:31 PM
  • manosg He's having an MVP type year and I didn't expect that tbh. I actually thought the Pacers would be out of the playoffs! We have had so many injuries the last few years, it's unreal.
    December 19 03:03 AM
  • manosg For sure, he was special. Those kind of injuries are very humbling though, they can break a guy's spirit. Maybe he needs a change of scenery, a new start. The thing with a lot of American guards is that they work too much on their speed and strength and less on the fundamentals. So when they lose their athleticism, they're done. Guys like Kidd, Nash or Andre Miller were successful for so long because they knew the game so well. Rose was mostly an athlete and then a basketball player.
    December 18 04:11 PM
  • manosg It looks like Rose is done though and I'm not even blaming the poor guy. Mentally and physically he doesn't look like a starting PG atm. He's inefficient and quite slow on defense when changing directions. And it's sad because he was incredible 3-4 years ago. I can seriously see the Bulls blowing up their squad at some point and keeping guys like Butler, McDermott and Portis and getting rid of Noah, Gibson, etc.
    December 18 03:50 PM
  • manosg Is he a PG or a SG though? He's probably gonna start sooner than later because the Wolves are looking to get rid of Kevin Martin in order to use Lavine next to Rubio. Going back to the 76ers, I'm really glad their experiment didn't work. They're a disgrace and a shame to the league.
    December 18 03:15 PM
  • manosg I love the project but dislike the coach. Flip Saunders did such a great job assembling a really good young roster and getting vets like KG, Miller and Prince in order to avoid the 76ers situation. All they need to do now is develop their guys and get a good coach (Thibodeau?). They also need to see if Wiggins is a SG or a SF and what position Lavine is better at. But they're on the right path.
    December 18 01:36 PM
  • manosg haha it's insane! The Hawks are out of the playoffs currently and look what Charlotte and Orlando are doing! Boston is out too even though I think both them and the Hawks are going to be in the playoffs come April. Milwaukee is such a disappointment as well.
    December 18 12:42 PM
  • ArsMoriendi I know like 3 songs on it... I don't think they're really my thing.
    December 6 02:25 PM
  • Mythodea well, it's prog metal with little touches of thrash. Vocals reminiscent of PoS and Nevermore. Check ''Mother Madness''. If you don't think like it's any good, then avoid.
    December 6 02:06 PM
  • Mythodea Okay, will do. Currently I'm reliving my big romance with Need. Have you ever heard? They are not much known, coming from Greece, but their sophomore album was a masterpiece.
    December 5 02:27 PM
  • Mythodea Nope, not even heard of him. I saw him tagged as flok and americana. Do you think I'm going to like it? Is he sth like Simon
    December 5 07:25 AM
  • Mythodea Many ups and downs lately, feels like I'm a small boat floating on a stormy sea. But I've always tried to keep a positive attitude, so I look on the bright side of all things. Besides, Christmas is coming, how bad anything can be?
    December 5 04:05 AM
  • Mythodea Oh, I surely can. Well, you know, sometimes, life comes to a point where it's so poignant you just don't know how to keep on. Nothing dramatic, it's simply that everything seems dull. I'm going through that phase, you must be going through sth similar. Everything will work out just fine eventually.
    December 3 09:27 AM
  • Rawmeeth38 Keep on listenin. Its one of my faves
    December 2 10:52 PM
  • Mythodea Hey Daniel. Long time no see. Yeah, it's been a rough time for ol' Myth, but all my difficulties aside, my ratings are perfectly balanced on No666, so I said not to change that for a while! I'm just kidding, of course. Thing is I currently listen more to already known music, I want to relax, not to learn. I've added some new music to my library, just haven't rated it yet. What's up with you?
    December 2 07:58 PM
  • dannyboy89 Dang, I haven't been around for a long time.I've been meaning to post that Deep Purple review, might do so sometime this month, as I'll have some free time.
    December 2 12:13 AM
  • romulanrancor Yeah, I'm planning to really soon. Got Superunknown on my phone right now :P
    November 30 06:42 PM
  • Titan will check....thanks Mr. Dias!
    November 28 09:35 AM
  • Titan i own sweet oblivion.....haven't heard much of their discog tho
