  • butcherboy okay, so I've been listening to the Gangster Rabbi and I am as confused as you are.. he is grotesque, but strangely appealing.. I really don't know what to think.. there is definitely an unhinged moment to him that I really like..
    July 23 11:11 PM
  • butcherboy i'll check it out tonight, Diva..
    July 23 01:04 PM
  • LandDiving Thank you diva! Appreciate it mate :)
    July 9 11:52 PM
  • butcherboy thanks very much, Diva..
    July 9 10:12 AM
  • e210013 Yeah, the site is a bit strange in the last times. I'm glad you bought a copy of it. I must do the same, one of these days.
    June 26 09:29 AM
  • e210013 Yeah, I suggested that. I already knew they had a new album. I'm really a great fan of them, especially of some of their albums. It seems you added the album already. Great, man.

  • wham49 I'll think about it, I have others I wanted to do at some point, but I wouldnt mind doing it, let me listen to them again, and I will get one out in the next week or so
    June 20 11:54 PM
  • Wright Thanks for the kind comment! Look forward reviews soon ;)

  • butcherboy sounds fantastic!!
    June 11 03:02 PM
  • RexKwonDoCarrey No disrespect intended, but you said you would gift wrap her for me, you know? "Halsey" so I've been waiting...
    June 7 02:30 AM
  • LandDiving i definitely agree with not loving every track but still being blown away by it. i'm going to try and listen to the whole thing soon, but i'm gonna need to put aside more time and attention than i usually do bc the thing is a behemoth haahha. thanks for helping me educate myself on the classics, diva
    June 6 07:50 AM
  • LandDiving i can see where you're coming from. i'm at track 5 right now and the sequencing really does make it feel like there's a cohesive, multi-dimensional narrative forming
    June 5 10:36 AM
  • LandDiving i like King Crimson a lot, but i haven't yet listened to The Who properly. i understand Tommy kinda pioneered the concept album?? if that's the case i'm excited to listen because some of favourite albums are like that. will check now
    June 5 10:04 AM
  • LandDiving I'm at that point in my youth now, I think, where I'm beginning to go through some older classics and actually enjoy them. i guess it just means that any help i can get is important so if you have any more reccs let me know!
    June 4 10:47 PM
  • LandDiving We're Only In It For the Money is insanely good. dunno why i've ignored Zappa this long. thanks diva
    June 3 07:40 AM
  • e210013 You're always welcome man.
    May 24 01:06 PM
  • e210013 Did you saw already my comment about "Keystudio"?
    May 23 10:54 AM
  • butcherboy nice, Diva.. You're a functional human being, for god's sakes!
    May 14 08:22 PM
  • butcherboy very cool.. how old are your kids?
    May 14 09:39 AM
  • butcherboy I work at a small art magazine by day, bartend by night (Saturday night, hence the starting shift).. also trying to start making a living at writing fiction.. so generally making my life as difficult as possible.. what about you, Diva?
    May 13 11:21 PM
  • Titan Clutching At Straws and Script For A Jesters Tear are both 5's for me
    May 13 08:31 AM
  • Titan uh oh, i only see one marillion album rated......not the best one either
    May 12 08:09 PM
  • Titan dude, great review, but if i can shed my s***ty opinion, maybe break up that monster of a first paragragh
    May 10 11:11 AM
  • altertide0 no problem
    May 3 05:16 PM
  • Titan love it!
    April 28 07:27 PM
  • Titan Flying Colors - Second Nature.......jam that album a few times and tell me what you think.....i believe that you will enjoy it......Portnoy side project, but a good one
    April 27 10:53 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Just givin u a hard time bro, i was bored lol good job reviewing though *thumbs up*
    April 24 11:22 AM

    April 19 07:50 AM
  • Titan well Diva bro, i strongly suggest you spin those songs....especially Be The One, That, That Is, and Mind Drive.......all superior stuff for the time it was written and recorded in......by far, best Yes since drama/90125
    April 14 04:37 PM
  • Titan honestly, i thought you were familiar with them.....
    April 14 04:32 PM
  • Titan have you seen how many reviews i've written??!! i say you because you reviewed the ABWH record......
    April 14 03:48 PM
  • Titan oh yes you do bro....it is the studio compilation for the tracks on Keys To Ascension I and II
    April 14 03:35 PM
  • Titan please review Keystudio
    April 13 07:44 PM
  • Jethro42 Whoa man, thanks for showing me these guys. I listened to their last album and I love what I've heard. They are really centered around jazz, but they're so ecclectic, it makes forget the jazz leanings. They have hints of some bands I'm familiar with, such as Zappa, Univers Zero, The Tangent and Echolyn. They all flirt with jazz, but they all expand their horizon further still.I will listen to everything Frogg (Progg) Cafe did. Thanks again! Cheers!
    March 20 10:19 PM
  • DoofusWainwright It might not stay on a 5 but Zappa has grown on me a lot over the last two years. Never realised he was THIS anti the hippy movement, pretty scathing stuff throughout.
    March 20 02:58 PM
  • Jethro42 Here I have something still better than my first rec. It's a coincidence if it's still Italian stuff. It's still modern prog, but it's way more accessible and harmonious. Ingranaggi Della Valle is harder to digest with all its tempo shifts, odd time signatures and complexity. I'm pretty sure you will enjoy this one more; One of the numerous projects by Fabio Zuffanti; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKOK_SxoguI
    March 18 03:51 PM
  • Dewinged Haha nice Diva, really happy you liked it. Great album man.
    March 18 07:17 AM
  • e210013 Once again thanks, man.
    March 16 11:28 AM
  • e210013 Thanks for the info, buddy. I know the band already but still I don't listen to that album yet. I like the band very much and you're right they're a heavy melodious band with Celtic elements, very prog. Anyway, thanks.
    March 16 05:49 AM
  • Jethro42 Nice try and thanks anyway Divaman, but except for song/segments reminiscent of Blackmore's Night, it's not really my thing. I don't like their sound. Not enough ''natural''. In the genre, I prefer bands such as Symphony X or Kamelot. I for myself suggest you a superb Italian. eclectic prog rock album released by Ingranaggi Della Valle - Warm Spaced Blue. They're a bit inspired by Anglagard, but they have their own personality.
    March 15 07:05 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I've heard of them and must know a few songs by then but I haven't actively checked them out, what's their best album?
    March 13 04:04 AM
  • theBoneyKing Their Waiting For the Dawn album I find fairly decent - Kids in Love is just so painfully saccharine and I find its lyrics pretty terrible. Different strokes, I guess.
    March 8 07:17 PM
  • butcherboy I tried Free Man in Paris.. I don't know, her voice is just so maudlin to me.. ended up listening to the kinks instead.. thanks though.. any other suggestions, throw them my way..
    March 6 08:54 PM
  • Dewinged You know what, maybe I gave her a 2 too cause in Spain we have them much worse. Check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuJh1gDL76s
    March 2 11:42 PM
  • Dewinged Hahaha agree in that she is a despicable succubus
    March 2 08:24 PM
  • Dewinged Oops that comment before was supposed to go to Doof lol I messed up, Anyway, Paris Hilton, couple of tracks in the first half are kinda catchy, if I didn't know it was her I could even like them! (:
    March 2 07:23 PM
  • Dewinged And 2 (Spanish joke :)
    March 2 10:58 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Diva we are always cool
    March 2 10:23 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Ha no, don't worry dude, I meant I was abusing all you lot with never ending Tiger Lillies reviews.
    March 2 10:08 AM
  • SowingSeason Reviewing new albums is definitely one aspect. You were definitely discussed at a couple of junctures, so my recommendation is to keep up the good work, focus on a few new releases, and apply again next time. Your work with the database and album adds/edits hasn't gone unnoticed by any of the mods, either.
    February 27 03:44 PM
  • SandwichBubble You lucky son of a gun! haha that's awesome. I just picked up some of his cds from some record store in the middle of nowhere around 2005.
    February 4 07:28 AM
  • SandwichBubble Damn shame, really glad he's back. And in such a substantial way too. Found "Demanding" and "The Natural Blues" in the garage yesterday. Forgot how good they were!
    February 3 02:30 PM
  • SandwichBubble Did he really truly release 3 albums last year? Guess I gotta go on a marathon haha
    February 3 11:40 AM
  • SandwichBubble I own that Preacher Boy album holy hell. I thought I was the only one on the site who even knew him. Thanks for adding it!
    February 2 01:00 PM
  • Totengott Forgot to rate it a while ago, I listened to it on my grandfather's sound system. He's been a fan of Tull since the early 70s. It's a nice record really.
    January 23 03:24 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I don't think so, heard something about some music vouchers once lol. Maybe I'm just not in the loop, but I wouldn't expect they get paid a great deal if anything.
    January 20 02:28 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Sounds like a plan, I came really late to Joni Mitchell but that album lives up to the hype. If you write the review I'll check that one by her next. 'Candy-O' the incentive is getting your name up early on the 'Albums Needing a Review 2017' list - there is no higher honour on Sputnik.com
    January 4 11:07 AM
  • DoofusWainwright I've had a few people say they agree with that Dylan description!
    December 20 03:41 PM
  • Jeffrulesyou I hear ya! There's a lot of classic albums on here that haven't been touched by any reviews. Keep em' coming I'll gladly check out your reviews for those great albums.
    December 19 07:51 AM
  • DoofusWainwright You loaded up all the albums by The Partridge Famiy - this sounds like grounds for you winning user of the year right there, stellar work. I was thinking of putting up the entire back catalogue of legendary Chinese singer Wing...
    December 18 05:31 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Listening to 1's isn't torture, it's hilarious. Plus for bad albums I usually only listen to a few full songs then scan listen the rest. I think 100% is impossible since they closed the 0.5 ratings other than for reviews. Otherwise maybe I need a few more 5s to improve my variance :/
    December 18 05:26 AM
  • TwigTW They have been on my list of bands to see since forever, and they did not disappoint... I will look for Shatner's "GKW". I'm sure it's a Christmas treat.
    December 14 10:03 PM
  • Jeffrulesyou Haven't listened to it yet, but I'm going to give it a spin. I'll check out your review when its ready of course! Kudos
    December 13 07:26 PM
  • DoofusWainwright No, just pure vanity ;D
    December 8 04:47 PM
  • DoofusWainwright The vocals are hilarious introspective crybaby Smiths style meets total goth groan. The music has some charm and strangely some of that charm then rubs off on the vox. Still poor overall though
    November 30 04:11 AM
  • DoofusWainwright I might be wrong, but I've just noticed how it's changed over time with my ratings. I've upped how many 1's and 5's I have proportionally over time and the objectivity got a lot higher
    November 29 01:05 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I'd say if you dished out twenty extra 1's and say ten more 1.5's you could painlessly increase your objectivity by 5%
    November 29 12:21 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Not 100% but I think you have to have as even a number of all rating values as possible, though if you are going to have more at any ratings they should be in the 2.5-3 bracket ideally. I think it might now be impossible to get 100% as users used to be able to use 0.5 ratings and now can't unless they request one for a review....so unless you review an equal proportion of 0.5's you're doomed to lower your objectivity. That's my guess anyway :D
    November 29 12:17 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Keep rec'ing me 1's - I need to keep my objectivity up in the high 90%s
    November 29 09:53 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Thanks for turning me on to the Dexiest album of 2016
    November 29 03:55 AM
  • e210013 I know that. What I wanted to say, sorry but English isn't my first language, is that when I review "Aqualung" we will be finally with the same opinion about the quality of a Tull's album, almost with the same rating. With the other two, we were in opposite fields.
    November 28 07:09 PM
  • SandwichBubble Hey no worries. I won't blast you too hard for it ;) And yeah, relistening to albums is a joy. Sometimes those albums can be goldmines (few of my 5s are previous 2.5 and unders). Not saying that's true for the new Dexy's, but you know: here's hoping!
    November 28 02:16 PM
  • SandwichBubble That's true I suppose. There is a degree of overlap (and I do like a lot of what you've rated/reviewed), but sometimes I just don't know about u. This Island a 3? Unacceptable lol :)
    November 28 01:46 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Ha, just saw the Enya beat 'Tallica comment. Perfect, what a match up.
    November 21 04:30 PM
  • TwigTW Sounds interesting, I'm always surprised by what bands I find missing from Sputnik. Especially local Boston bands that I thought were fairly well known--but I guess not, lol. Keep up the good work.
    November 20 09:03 AM
  • TwigTW Now that's dedication!
    November 19 02:08 PM
  • TwigTW It didn't look like you got an answer to your jpeg size question in the meds thread. The short answer is if you get your image from Amazon.com it is always a jpeg and the right size, but 200 - 300 pixels for the longest side is what they are looking for (and always works).
    November 19 12:30 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Well I really like Therapy?...but they're Northern Irish so I won't even get into that argument.
    November 19 03:47 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Diva I know Enya, I couldn't have gotten to this ripe old age without listening to a bit of her new age chuff. Never sat down through a whole album before...not sure if I felt I really needed to listen to a whole album of Enya in the one sitting by the end of it :D As a rec it sorta falls in the middle, enjoyable but not really my thing.
    November 18 03:51 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I feel like I'm really kickin' you where it hurts with these recs - I apologise. All I can say is I haven't rated too many recs that highly this round
    November 2 02:23 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Listened to it this morning - way too much cheese for breakfast
    November 2 02:12 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I'm sorry buddy, just not my thing at all - I like my punk girls a bit more scrotty, like the chick from Be Your Own Pet
    November 1 03:01 PM
  • TwigTW Yeah, I Skipped the Tales From Topographic Oceans show too. The Close To The Edge and Fragile shows were great tho, and they did some Heaven And Earth songs that year too--sounded better live than on the album.
    October 27 07:04 PM
  • TwigTW The show was great. I prefer Howe to Rabin too, but it really was an Anderson/Wakeman show. There were only three Rabin era songs. When they played ?Awaken? it was like Rabin wasn?t even there, lol. Here?s the setlist: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/arw/2016/wang-theatre-boston-ma-2bfd4cae.html . Have you seen Yes recently? It was interesting to compare Anderson to his replacement in Yes. Similar voices, but Anderson is a showman in a way his replacement never will be.
    October 26 10:07 PM
  • Storm In A Teacup nah lol they've been in my top 10 bands for the last 22 years or so. just now bothering to check out their last 6 or 7 records and asked him for recs on what to do but he says just go by songs so I started with the whole Magnetic album instead
    October 26 08:51 PM
  • Titan im always in a Yess mood divabro! you're list may have triggered my frenzy tho!
    October 26 06:57 PM
  • Archelirion No problem dude :]
    October 18 02:29 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I couldn't really get over the American Irish accent
    October 14 12:40 PM
  • Jeffrulesyou No problemo! Take it easy
    October 7 05:59 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Which one?
    September 24 03:06 AM
  • IronGiant as different as you are from me in terms of the music you like, you're a good guy. cheers man
    September 10 03:39 PM
  • Titan thats pretty funny dude....i'll be sure to check them out
    September 8 06:40 PM
  • Titan yo!!!!! i went to sewanhaka....unfortunately, i'm not familiar with The Good Rats
    September 8 04:37 PM
  • SandwichBubble you guys move around more than I did! lol If I stayed in NY for high school, I probably would've went to memorial high or Sewanhaka
