  • MattTD you're at uni right? how's that going for you
    September 30 01:23 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Actually just remembered my grandad went to see Ian Anderson in York about a week or so ago.
    September 23 06:01 PM
  • Tunaboy45 I'm in Middlesbrough, we have a couple of decent venues like the empire (Brand New played there on Sunday, BFMV are there next month) but if you want to go to bigger shows it's Newcastle or Manchester.
    September 23 06:00 PM
  • Tunaboy45 I know that type, the ones who think The Jackson 5's ABC will be better with a sick drop. I'm technically classed as north yorkshire and yep we're lucky to get any shows up here. Altar Of Plagues look great live.
    September 23 05:51 PM
  • Tunaboy45 That's not so bad then, I have Ghost and Steven Wilson lined up so that's something to look forward to. Are you implying EDM isn't the best thing ever to have existed?
    September 23 05:39 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Well good luck with it mate, and since this is only the third week or so I'm sure something can go wrong for me. Just imagine if you got a indie flat mate or something, reminding you every 5 minutes that AM is god's gift to music.
    September 23 05:28 PM
  • Tunaboy45 You pretty much have to do 4 at this sixth form but after y12 you're given the option to drop one (virtually everyone does). The only downside is that the frees drag like hell. So how's uni?
    September 23 05:11 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Been finding it good, just need to keep on top of work and everything because once you slip behind I know it can be hard to catch up again. I have 5 free periods a week right now, just using them to get extra work done and stuff (easy to be distracted though when there's other people around haha).
    September 23 05:04 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Same here, not bad. Just getting settled down with sixth form and thinking about the future, been a really busy few weeks.
    September 23 04:56 PM
  • Tunaboy45 How's things man? Been a while.
    September 21 01:59 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Indeed. can't wait for the new Deafheaven in a couple weeks, both new songs they've released have been killer
    September 17 09:58 PM
  • TalonsOfFire geez still an exam hangover? I hope you've been enjoying your summer though haha, mine was pretty good and have been diving into college these past two weeks. Philosophy major is tough at times but im still loving it
    September 17 09:12 PM
  • TalonsOfFire hey man feel like we havent talked in a while, how you been?
    September 17 08:45 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges smae man
    September 6 05:27 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges hell and back. how about you?
    September 6 11:46 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges philippe my brother
    September 5 09:51 PM
  • Artuma i'm starting too feel that felt is even better than spaces. only heard that darkness album by olafur but i really liked it (though i haven't listened to it in a long time), will check out eulogy
    September 3 08:20 AM
  • Artuma dude i just wanted to say that i really dig your review for nils frahm's spaces. been getting into his music lately, never really cared for piano music before but spaces is a stunning listen
    September 2 02:19 AM
  • Mad. Yeah I'll manage anyhow. You buying tickets for any of the freshers events or anything?
    August 18 01:04 PM
  • Mad. Guess I'll see you at Freshers then! Yeah East was my first priority for accomodation lol, that's where my department is
    August 17 06:27 AM
  • Mad. I'm in Block G, dunno where it is or much about it yet. Do you have ensuite? I got pretty much the opposite of my preferences
    August 16 06:43 PM
  • Mad. Dude, I'm in the same college, what block you in?
    August 16 01:14 PM
  • Mad. Yeah man I did, how'd it all go for you?
    August 16 07:55 AM
  • CalculatingInfinity I most likely will, summer blows. Good luck for your results too.
    August 11 12:34 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Hey, I was out all day. Sorry about that, I'm up for any other time.
    August 9 04:51 AM
  • CalculatingInfinity It's the summer, I have too much free time. Message me whenever you want.
    July 23 01:56 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Bezzzzzzzzzzzz, up for Plug?
    July 23 01:51 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I get that, his vocals do take some getting used to. Their early albums are amazing, but yeah not for everybody. Also wanted to drop this by you, some cool instrumental prog that no one's really heard of:
    July 21 04:40 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Well they certainly aren't for everybody haha. thanks for the rec, I'll check it out
    July 13 10:04 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Their first four albums are amazing and the new one is their best since then
    July 12 02:17 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Dude you ever jam any Cradle of Filth?
    July 12 01:01 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Sure, just shoutbox me or message me on FB when you're up for it tomorrow.
    July 10 02:30 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Hey man, just wondering do you ever go on
    July 10 02:26 PM
  • Feather sorry for the "country" album you have to review ;)
    July 9 09:48 AM
  • Brostep thanks! thank goodness it's the summer, otherwise I'd have no chance of getting this done in a timely manner haha
    July 8 09:34 PM
  • Brostep also which version would you like me to review? the full 28-track album?
    July 8 09:18 PM
  • Brostep hey dude! is there any legal outlet for the utopia soundtrack besides the greedbag website? not super excited about paying what'll come out to around 13 bucks for a download and want to check in before buying the CD off Amazon
    July 8 09:17 PM
  • Mall hopefully leicester but maybe staying in sheffield
    June 21 05:22 AM
  • Tunaboy45 Yeah I've been meaning to listen to them for ages, these past few months I just haven't been listening to much BM. It'll probably be one of the next albums I check out so thanks for the rec.
    June 20 05:51 PM
  • Mall eng lit eng lang and history, doing an eng lit course next year
    June 20 05:44 AM
  • Mall well done man! mines tomorrow and it'll be exactly the same haha
    June 18 06:15 PM
  • Lech taken your A Levels yet bud? (Mall here btw)
    June 10 12:15 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Thanks, I worked so desperately to get those grades and it paid off. Your efforts will too, I guarantee you the first year of Uni is mostly nothing compared to the work you put in this year. Minus the first 2 weeks here which ****ing sucked, I definately enjoyed my time. Always nice to have something to do at a great Uni plus Anime Society.
    June 4 01:40 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Hey man, just saw you post and just wanted to say hope your exams are going well. Best of luck.
    June 3 03:37 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Thanks a lot, so far it's 7 down and 9 to go. I originally wanted to do biology but decided against it.
    May 23 04:48 AM
  • Mort. I only have 2 to do and their both retakes so i should be fine. Good luck with yours man. Excited to be (hopefully) going to uni.
    May 20 07:38 PM
  • Tunaboy45 I've applied for Sociology, English language, English literature and History. The option to drop one after the first year is always there if needs be. What did you do?
    May 20 07:14 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Part 2 is my favorite song right now, and the closer is heartwrenching
    May 11 12:04 AM
  • TalonsOfFire I could actually understand someone feeling that way about any of their albums except for Écailles which is amazing
    May 8 12:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Your Alcest ratings :(
    May 7 10:16 PM
  • porcupinetheater Dude, before I forget, just wanted to drop a thanks over here for the introduction to Csejthe, so ****ing good
    May 4 12:11 PM
  • Flugmorph you have 4 votes on that mdm poll
    April 22 04:17 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I love genrebending bm about as much as the classics, I'll check those soon. Most of the sputcore classics have great stuff, like Aeroplane, Jane Doe, Devil and God, Still Life etc. but they aren't the greatest albums ever made like some on here say. I'd give Tool another chance, especially since you love prog and dig 10,000 Days. Their music just requires some attention. You like Godspeed after all, they seem way harder to get into.
    April 21 09:28 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah I know, I've tried to catch up on sput essentials. Your rating for Lateralus makes me sad, also is Sacred White Noise and In Times the only bm you've heard??
    April 21 03:54 PM
  • NorwichScene You get Big Weekend tix?
    April 21 03:42 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Don't Bend is actually next for me so I'm jamming that song now, you're right that song is definitely among their best compositions
    April 19 05:08 PM
  • TalonsOfFire They're on my to listen list and do seem like my type of thing. Never knew you were into Godspeed, I've just started getting into them. I know you're no stranger to controversial ratings, but you might be going a little too far having F#A# and Antennas at 3-3.5 while having their new ones at 4 haha
    April 19 04:47 PM
  • Onirium I found this pretty cool interview in which he talks about how metal influences his composition: (there's an English translation at the bottom)
    April 13 12:11 PM
  • Onirium I was surprised as well by the complex proggy arrangements and the quite heavy sound of some of the songs. There has always been a sense of that merging of jazz and rock in his music, but this time it feels more fleshed-out. It's actually very reminiscent of his earlier period, especially the Aratta Rebirth album, although that one was more jazzy.
    April 13 12:10 PM
  • Onirium Tell me what you think of it when you have the time!
    April 11 11:52 PM
  • YakNips maybe a little bit............
    April 10 01:41 PM
  • YakNips u have successfully ruined my legacy good going
    April 10 01:33 PM
  • Onirium Have you heard the new Tigran Hamasyan album? He adopted a similar approach to that of Shadow Theater, but in a more focused and cohesive way. I remember that being your main problem with the previous one, so I think you'll be satisfied by the new album if you haven't heard the it yet.
    April 10 10:11 AM
  • TalonsOfFire I don't really care for much of anything they did after Scenes anymore, with a few exceptions of course, so not not really looking forward to it lol. I'll listen of course, that should spark more conversation between you, me, Mongi, Oni etc. again like the good 'ol days haha
    March 30 02:24 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Oops haha my shoutbox got caught off, the I was supposed to start to Images and Words by Dream Theater, I kept it at a 5 because I stopped being stupid
    March 30 02:11 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I recently purged a bunch of my 5s and you'll be happy to know I
    March 30 01:53 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Good to see you around these parts more regularly again, I'll check that band out they sound interesting
    March 30 11:21 AM
  • Toondude10 I'll probably get to it later. I have class today
    March 30 09:39 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Your dad?? That's pretty awesome, I think I read about them on wikipedia or something. Their really slow tempos can get a little tedious, especially because they seem to repeat some of their older stuff on newer albums. Plague of Butterflies is probably their best song, reminds me of Opeth
    March 29 09:17 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Didn't know you dug Swallow the Sun, they're one of my favorite bands since early middle school. had no idea that any of my friends on sput would have even heard of them
    March 29 08:15 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges "EO is pretty awesome so I'm not too fussed"
    March 27 08:14 PM
  • HolidayKirk I had pondered edits, a few rewrites, compiling, and maybe publishing an e-book. But I don't have the promotional power to make that a profitable venture. So I'm not certain yet.
    March 25 12:57 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Bands like Modest Mouse and Foals I usually just throw on just to listen to a lot, most of my recent reviews have been for metal. My tastes have been changing a lot though, I'm loving a lot of experimental music, both in metal and just in general like Ulver, Radiohead, Gazpacho, Dir En Grey, Swans, GY!BE, Gorguts etc.
    March 24 08:26 PM
  • Tunaboy45 I knew I'd get crushed but not too bothered really, at least we both made it on there in the first place.
    March 24 05:17 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Dafuq does no one know who you are or something? You're one of the best users here, we need choccy awareness day.
    March 24 03:15 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Dream Theater, Opeth, and Porcupine Tree were indeed responsible for bringing most of us together. I'm glad we've all moving on to other music, while still counting those bands among our favs. Life's been taking precedence over sput for me as well, I've still tried to keep focusing on reviewing though. Geryon's sick so far, reminds me of Gorguts
    March 24 01:28 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That's tough cause I think of you, oranges, gameofmetal, onirium, mongi, and a few others my main friends on sput so it'd be difficult for us to have to vote against one for another haha
    March 24 12:53 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That's what I figured, so it's just who the voter likes more, based on like anything? I'm against Hyperion, who staff reviews amazing death metal albums, so that one's not exactly fair! Haha didn't exactly expect to win there, though I'm happy our scores ended up being that close
    March 24 12:42 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Maybe I'm just an idiot, but is it good or bad if people vote for me, and what exactly does that list even mean??
    March 24 10:06 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Dark Noctus did an album called They Became the Falling Ash under the band name Ethereal Shroud, everyone on sputnik's been creaming their pants over it, and it is pretty great. Other than that not much yet :/ check out other Enslaved, they're an incredible band. They sort of sound like a blackened Opeth, if that makes sense
    March 23 07:17 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Give In Times more time to grow on you! Are you an enslaved fan?
    March 23 03:29 PM
  • Mort. fair enough. i overplayed it already tbh, only listen to Anaesthetist when it comes up
    March 21 03:13 PM
  • Mort. Mindsweep not grown on you then?
    March 21 12:57 PM
  • Onirium Have you ever seen the documentary My Music Brain? Because I know you were doing research on the subject of music's effect on the brain at some point, and even though it's probably too late to actually help, that documentary is extremely interesting.
    March 11 08:22 AM
  • TalonsOfFire You listen to the new Enslaved yet? It's streaming on YT, I think you'd like it, sort of like a blackened Opeth
    March 6 01:17 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot oh and check this album I just reviewed. It's gorgeous
    February 28 06:53 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thx choccy mah man
    February 20 09:43 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I don't love Images or Scenes any less, I just don't know if they're absolutely perfect in every way. I don't know. This is exactly why part of me wants them all wiped, so I don't have to think about this s*** haha
    February 12 08:12 PM
  • TalonsOfFire It's good as a library of whats been listened to for sure. I just don't know how to rate some stuff, like I don't love I
    February 12 08:10 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I actually listened to Awake again recently and loved it. If anything I changed how I view my ratings, like a 4/5 means I love the album and there's pretty much nothing wrong with it, but anything higher is considered one of my all time favorites. Though I might just wipe my ratings altogether as people, like myself, spend too much time scrutinizing and questioning it
    February 12 12:29 PM
  • treeqt. i don't hate music
    January 23 07:53 PM
  • Mort. oooh sweet. im looking forward to delving in next monday
    January 11 12:23 PM
  • Mort. so its their most diverse album?
    January 11 11:38 AM
  • Mort. never listened to system of a down so that will be an interesting listen. are the songs already released indicative of the whole album?
    January 11 11:25 AM
  • Mort. no no. i wait for the release day. i ignore leaks tbh. i have already preordered the vinyl tho haha
    January 11 11:19 AM
  • Mort. how hyped are you for enter shikari now? im loving anaesthetist
    January 11 11:06 AM
  • Hippo91 #hippo90 returns
    January 9 02:03 PM
  • TalonsOfFire It's almost as good as tool, the musicians are amazing, it's basically a supergroup Maynard isn't the only draw
    January 7 12:37 PM
  • TalonsOfFire You've never heard APC? Get on it dude, there's only two albums and they're amazing almost as good as tool, Maynard is the singer
    January 7 09:07 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Don't give up hope Choccy! Radiohead at least seems like they'll come through but who knows with Tool. Mongi was saying he would slightly prefer a new APC. After Thirteenth Step it'd be very interesting to see where they'd go from there. Thought maybe Emotive was a sign they were kinda out of ideas and had said all they needed to say...
    January 5 03:14 PM
  • TalonsOfFire There aren't that many games out yet but when there are and you get into any of them we should try to play at some point, there's some cool sci-fi ones coming out this year. Manson's alright, it's more for nostalgia than anything else I'm just reviewing his new album which is his best in a while, but it's only around a 3 I'm obviously more excited for stuff like Tool and Radiohead haha
    January 5 02:29 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Modest Mouse, Queens of the Stone Age, Periphery, maybe Tool, Steven Wilson, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, hopefully Radiohead... it should be a good time. I think I'm gonna make a list of favorite albums that came out since I joined for the 10X comments. I can't remember every user I talk to to make it into a list, it's mainly you, Art, and Mongi, then a bunch of others at random times. I actually just bought a PS4, so if you have one too we could be friends on PSN or whatever it's called.
    January 4 03:26 PM
  • TalonsOfFire This year should have some cool releases though plenty to talk about, do you own a 360? If so we should be friends on live
    January 3 08:41 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Aww, we'll still spam opeth threads just a little less. I'll actually have more free time this semester than the fall which is nice. I'll apply, but I don't really expect to get it I just wanna be on the mods radar for the future
    January 3 08:07 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That must've been fun to imagine what everyone looked like. My school has the longest breaks with no assignments which is nice. New year was fun, played GTA V with friends from high school while my parents had their own gathering in our living room. You do anything fun?
    January 1 05:22 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That's probably exactly what'd happen if they did haha, yeah once college starts up again I'll probably be more scarce. I have a 6 week long break from school now and there's nothing to do at home :/ how were your holidays?
    January 1 03:57 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Dude I had a dream last night that you wrote this essay on how evil the sputnik mods were in this giant leatherbound velvet decorated tome that ended with the V for Vendetta sign and a curse on them, no idea where it came from but I think I spend too much time on this site lol
    January 1 02:43 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Stream for new SW track. I think it's pretty good.
    December 29 08:59 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ehh nvm lol
    December 27 12:33 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Sure, I'll be in here. @ mention me when you're in:
    December 27 12:05 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot i think you'd like this kate carr album dude. kinda similar-ish to vanessa rossetto... well, maybe not. it's field recordings, but she doctors it a bit more and has more drone elements in the mix.
    December 26 12:30 PM
  • ricardohrr Of course, I understand what you are saying now, I put the word important for Post-Hardcore because I understand that they are making a great job to increase the genre and make more popular than others genres of Hardcore, but they are not the most important band anyway, i agree with your comment!
    December 24 03:07 PM
  • ricardohrr Hey man, thanks for you comment, Hammer is a great song but not one of my favorites from Common Courtesy but I respect your opinion and man I have a question, why do you think ADTR is not that important for the genre?
    December 24 01:09 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Sweet, I won't be on today but evening tomorrow, 26 and 27th will do me just fine.
    December 24 09:24 AM
  • JamieTwort Heard bits and pieces from Shpongle but never really got into them. Will check that album though, thanks.
    December 23 03:05 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Good man, that monsterous run of Tales to Ineffable Mysteries is mindblowing. Also you have hoildays yet to Plug again?
    December 23 06:01 AM
  • RivalSkoomaDealer Hey Choccy, here's my 2014 list you should check it and see if you missed anything cool this year:
    December 22 03:19 PM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing this stuff is awesome dude thanks for the rec :)
    December 17 09:40 PM
  • RivalSkoomaDealer For the industrial stuff, maybe try some Dalek, Techno Animal, or Meatbeat Manifesto. If you're looking for psychadelic stuff like Shabazz Palaces: cLOUDEAD, The Underachievers, Ratking, and Flatbush Zombies are good to branch out to. =D
    December 12 09:33 AM
  • CalculatingInfinity Aww, okay man education obviously comes first.
    December 10 04:27 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Hey man, up for Plug?
    December 10 04:19 PM
  • TalonsOfFire The sacred white noise trio of sput...
    December 10 02:21 PM
  • RivalSkoomaDealer Choccy, it appears we have the same AOTY. =) You're the only dude here with as much appreciation for Sacred White Noise as me.
    December 8 02:42 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Fair enough, I can understand where you're coming from. The Moor is a fantastic track.
    December 7 03:48 PM
  • Tunaboy45 So what's your opinion on Still Life?
    December 6 07:59 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot smh. but yeah, try it
    December 6 02:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Sup Choccy. You know I like to throw random recs at you, and I've got another. I think you'd enjoy this Jon Brooks album
    December 5 11:53 AM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing you like very avant-garde hip hop stuff haha. that's great. I heard the whole CLPPNG album on youtube and it was terrific!
    December 5 06:57 AM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing it looks dope man, i will listen! and holy s*** dude how did you get so many review comments ive been here for like 4 years and still haven't cracked a thousand haha
    December 3 04:33 AM
  • HalfManHalfAmazing you get around to listening to any hip hop?
    December 2 10:20 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Musk Ox was a definite top tenner, and I never lost interest in Thantifaxath I just listened to it way too much haha, and yeah check the others in my list some of them I just discovered and were some amazing hidden gems
    December 2 09:41 PM
  • Mongi123 Tbh I didn't mean for this many people to find out haha I just contacted Jom to ask him questions and told Rowan too and that's it :D but I gotta see how the semester starts affecting me first. And yea good luck to you too!
    December 2 08:43 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah our top 3 were similar, I never really though gazpacho would take #1 for me, I knew yours would be thantifaxath haha
    December 2 07:05 PM
  • Mongi123 Not yet haha I'm thinking I may have to halt my reviewing for a while during the next semester because I'll be super ****ing busy. If the work load gets to be a lot I'll have to only pop up occasionally
    December 2 06:41 PM
  • SharkTooth What use is rushing it when there's no due date?(;
    December 1 12:08 PM
  • SharkTooth
    December 1 10:49 AM
  • SharkTooth Hey Choccy, this video might be very helpful with your review
    December 1 10:45 AM
  • PappyMason Yeah, I've got you. I would say that Prefuse 73's albums 'One Word Extinguisher' and 'Vocal Studies Uprock Narratives' would be right up your street. And DJ Shadow's 'Endtroducing.....', of course. But these are more electronic based. Some of my favourite hip-hop records include stuff like Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx..., Nas - Illmatic; The Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die, but there is so much good stuff out there. You'll find it anyways.
    November 29 08:23 PM
  • PappyMason Hey man, give me a shout if you need any hip-hop recs based on anything you've liked. I reckon you'll be fine anyways. Happy listening!
    November 29 08:09 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sup man, if you're in the mood for something chilled-out check out this Snowday album. it's pretty dope. and thx for the shoutout
    November 29 07:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cheers man.
    November 27 07:47 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I liked Floex a lot, the other one was cool too
    November 27 12:01 AM
  • TalonsOfFire I'm sure there's stuff out there I'd dig as much as Radiohead or Ulver but a lot of it sounds so vapid and repetitive, even though I know that isn't really true, just for the popular stuff. All the edm that's constantly around certainly hasn't helped with that
    November 24 09:21 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot check my newest rev I guess. I *think* it's your kinda dig. completely improvised instrumentals, each track is unique and animalistic.
    November 24 08:30 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I'll try, though it's always been hard for me to get into electronic music unless rock or metal bands try it out like Radiohead or Ulver. I haven't heard the new Damien Rice yet, but from people have been saying it's just as good as O if not better so I'll definitely listen soon
    November 24 08:23 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo choccy. do you dig improvised music at all?
    November 24 08:19 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I like the Windowlicker t/t a little more than what I've listened to from the debut, his stuff is definitely good but I don't know if I could really get into it. I jammed O today and it's definitely a worthy listen, despite it being a little melodramatic at times.
    November 23 09:41 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I'll keep trying DG, I didn't dislike it or anything I just might've not been in the right mood for it. I'll start with Selected Ambient Works, that's their best and most successful as far as I can tell. I still need to check out Damian Rice, I have "O" saved in spotify and sowing keeps raving about him.
    November 19 08:04 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I tried listening to death grips and it good, but I don't think it's really my thing. I'm gonna give aphex twin a shot soon and see if that clicks. What's helped me not be disillusioned with rock/metal is listening to the best each subgenre like indie rock, alt. rock, stoner rock, post-rock etc has to offer. Maybe give that a go when you feel like getting back to it, some time away from prog rock/metal might be good, I've barely listened to any since the summer O_O
    November 19 07:43 PM
  • Mort. Im not a fan of long reviews. I feel a lot of them trail off from the point of a review and venture more into the discussion style dialogue that shoild be kept in the comments section. And yeah man its sorta grown off me just a little bit. I still love it, but not liking it as kuch is probably to be expected seeming as i listened to it like 40 times in the first few days it came out haha
    November 19 07:38 PM
  • Mort. did you see my new review man? any feedback you could give would be appreciated. also has last garrison grown on you at all?
    November 19 06:49 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Haha, me and nicki go way back. I've never tried death grips, their albums covers kind of turn me away haha. I've been meaning to check Aphex Twin, but I'm afraid it won't live up to all the sputhype, sort of like what happened to you with Brand New
    November 17 03:43 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I went through a bit of an electronic music phase recently and used to listen to a lot of hip hop, but a lot of it sounds so shallow and repetitive to me now, unless it's really experimental. I sort of agree about the rock/metal criticism though, I've been finding the same thing myself
    November 16 09:03 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That's interesting that you say that, what other genres are you getting in to?
    November 16 06:40 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah I keep bombarding you lol. I wouldn't worry about Vlad Delay that much though, his older stuff is more worthwhile
    November 15 05:35 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot dunno if you like Ariel Pink but I'm doing a review for his new one, might make up for your Dean Blunt disappointment lol
    November 15 05:31 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Try their other albums, something tells me you might like them more, especially Daisy
    November 14 02:01 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That rating for Brand New ;_;
    November 13 09:52 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Also just found this:
    November 12 10:49 PM
  • TalonsOfFire An Autumn for Crippled Children - Try Not To Destroy Everything You Love, Negura Bunget - OM (sort of), Woods of Desolation - Toward The Depths. Also check the new Job For A Cowboy if you haven't yet, a death metal AOTY for sure and parts of it even reminded me of Thantifaxath sort of
    November 12 10:46 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah they're pretty interesting, their debut is just as good as Sunbather imo and a lot less uplifting
    November 12 04:53 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I've been a Vlad Delay fan for a while. but mostly I just surf around bandcamp. sometimes I see recurring labels that put out consistently good stuff, then I start following what they do, and... yeah. would love your input on the review man, I think you'd dig his work
    November 10 06:19 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I think you'd like the new Vladislav Delay man
    November 10 07:03 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot The review's fine man, just tweak it a little bit
    November 6 09:57 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot You can make things flow nicer without being superfluous though
    November 6 09:26 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Posted a couple quick tidbits. I'll try and give it a more thorough read later though
    November 6 08:48 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Sure, might have to wait an hour or so if that's ok
    November 6 08:23 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Id all of the s*** posts. Most if not all of your comments stayed though since you don't s*** post, so no worries!
    November 6 01:47 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot fair enough. I actually like how he keeps then lazy. It's like he's pondering, and just speaking off the cuff. Like he's just bitching about stuff under his breath
    November 5 06:43 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo man, could you elaborate on what you think coulda been done better? (not being confrontational lol just curious what your thoughts are)
    November 5 06:13 PM
    November 4 10:51 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I've been meaning to check portal for a while now, is their new one better? That average rating is impressive
    November 4 06:17 PM
  • SharkTooth lol JohnnyOnTheSpot proof'd it for you, looks like you have it easy for your first proofreading thread experience. Cheers
    November 3 08:09 PM
  • SharkTooth Hey Choccy, the thing about the proofreading thread is most of the time nobody's going to proof it until you ask someone specifically to do so. My personal picks for proofreaders would be Judio and JohnnyOntheSpot. You can also try Atari or BMDrummer if neither of the previous are available
    November 3 07:32 PM
  • YakNips yeah maybe, it was definitely interesting but i can't rate anything higher than a 3 tbh :/
    November 2 05:34 PM
  • YakNips first four songs were ok and the fifth song was awful and this last one is great
    November 2 05:30 PM
  • YakNips help im listening to /F what the **** is going on
    November 2 05:10 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah I've heard good things about that one. I'm gonna work on another musique concrete album review soon I think (my current dig) and I think you'd dig that also. Oh and Dean Blunt is releasing a new album soon... you'd probably like him too. So many good albums lately
    November 2 08:47 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot You might also dig this mutahertz album I reviewed (despite the 2.5 rating).
    November 2 08:36 AM
  • Sabrutin I have to say that I'm actually enjoying Ecliptica Revisited, even though I still prefer most of the originals (I easily understand your point, most choruses for example sound less energetic). I'm glad we can agree on Blank File. :] The worst song is probably the Genesis cover (which I really dislike).
    November 1 11:51 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Oh s***, I posted that right before your birthday, haha. Happy birthday, man.
    October 29 07:25 PM
  • Mongi123 Happy birthday dude
    October 28 11:26 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges *sees Overgrown and good kid, m.A.A.d city ratings* I ****ing hate you sometimes, you know that?
    October 27 08:50 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot aww man, you're missing out. I did a review of her new one though if you're curious. It's pretty nice ambient, so I think you'd really enjoy it
    October 27 07:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot are you into Grouper at all?
    October 27 07:07 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot FYI it's harsh noise, dunno if you like that but you're usually open
    October 24 08:03 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot You might get a kick out of this ACIN album I reviewed
    October 24 04:59 PM
  • Onirium Thanks, I'm not really familiar with electronica as I said, so yeah I'll check that out
    October 23 04:58 PM
  • Onirium yeah Kiasmos
    October 22 08:42 PM
  • Mort. dude!!! new ES i dig it
    October 22 03:04 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Woodfall is definitely an AOTY for me and that Autumn Albums list from last week has a bunch of great neofolk stuff too that I've been getting into, perfect for this weather
    October 22 02:16 PM
  • Onirium Hey, have you heard the new song by Olafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen? I've never been the biggest fan of electronica but it's quite great
    October 21 05:45 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah I've heard a lot about it, will check for sure. Also I see you were responsible for getting rid of the progressive metal tag for Thantifaxath, which is interesting because I hear a lot of Meshuggah, Enslaved, and even Opeth influences in Sacred White Noise
    October 20 10:05 PM
  • Artuma it's not prog lol but w/e i'll never agree on anything with you anyway
    October 19 06:12 PM
  • Artuma check nomas by arcana coelestia. i'm pretty sure you'd dig it
    October 19 04:40 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I have their best album according to sput but I haven't heard it yet, isn't is sort if similar to thantifaxath?
    October 19 03:53 PM
  • TalonsOfFire What's even weirder is that mine is flagged now, again... And while it should be first come first serve it's actually based on which review is the best
    October 19 03:16 PM
  • TalonsOfFire idk, it's interesting because mine reads more like a contributor review, but his is longer and more in depth. Mine could've been more informative, I might add a paragraph talking about more of the songs or something it's definitely too short
    October 19 02:24 PM
  • emester digging that Swallowed record?
    October 19 01:03 PM
  • Phlegm 3.0 for Flatland ... THREE . ZERO for FLATLAND
