  • Divaman I wouldn't mind seeing The Monkees make the Hall, Storm, although I reluctantly understand the objections to them. I think they've always been underrated, though.

  • dihstyle69 listened to it 4 times, i really hated it. it's overlong, the lyrics aren't well written at all, lame prod for the most part. tech rly needs to make a reset in his career, there's no way around it.

  • Thor You have been acknowledged!

  • bananatossing Hey mate, make sure you watch this podcast from Hopesfall. You'll dig it:

  • AaroN911 That's very broad lol
    December 19 10:12 AM
  • SandwichBubble I'm assuming you saw my link in the "gas station foods" thread? Nah, not from Tulsa. Just pulled a random image from Google :)
    December 17 05:59 PM
  • AaroN911 What are some of your favorite's from The Storm?
    December 15 10:08 AM
  • AaroN911 Well I have listened to it here and there throughout the weekend but I haven't had a sit down with it... but so far I hear a 3.5 out of it possibly a 4. Same(ish) formula as his previous couple as well, but I guess don't change what doesn't need to be fixed.

  • Joeman82 Sorry I didn't see your response earlier! I don't check my older lists too often. My favorites from the refs were A Lot Like Bird's two albums, Icarus the Owl - Self Titled, Alexisonfire - Self Titled, and Sianvar - Stay Lost. All killer albums. So glad I originally asked for recs. Hard to get through them all when I end up listening to a whole band's discography every time I hear a new album because I love it so much, haha.
    December 12 01:14 AM
  • neekafat Sweets! I'll have to check 'em out sometime
    December 11 12:47 AM
  • neekafat Yeah I know this one! Kinda dig it. Which is your favorite album of theirs?
    December 11 12:33 AM
  • neekafat That was pretty dece
    December 11 12:12 AM
  • Typhoon24 how do u feel about k-rino's illuminati conspiracy songs
    December 8 04:09 AM
  • Drifter Thanks for the rec! Will definitely check tomorrow and I'll tell you what I think
    December 8 12:12 AM
  • dbizzles Lol Preoccupations. It got s*** on hard.
    December 6 02:05 AM
  • Typhoon24 duality - k-rino mightve won me over. i definitely have to redo my top rappers list
    December 3 03:43 AM
  • bornthetravestyofman Fugazi is the popular choice for best post hardcore, but I prefer At the Drive-In. Relationship of Command just goes too hard in the paint for me to deny its greatness. Refused is just a notch behind. And that's how the cookie crumbles.
    November 30 08:03 PM
  • AaroN911 My favs are Anghellic, EverReady, and All 6's and 7's but all are great imo... I will probably see this as a 3.5 or a 4 based off what i have heard. Excited nonetheless
    November 30 02:02 PM
  • AaroN911 compared to the last few is it improved any or the same fire I expect?!
    November 30 10:49 AM
  • coneren ill cone you in a minute bud
    November 29 09:27 PM
  • coneren hello friend
    November 29 08:16 PM
  • Tyler. Oh sorry I didnt notice. I mean its no big deal cause that's a really amazing ep so
    November 29 07:44 PM
  • AaroN911 You have heard The Storm already?
    November 29 03:36 PM
  • TheSpaceMan k
    November 29 01:35 AM
  • TheSpaceMan i just legitimately dont understand the way you comment at me is all. cant tell if youre being sarcastic in a friendly way or what lol
    November 29 12:14 AM
  • TheSpaceMan Lol you take me too seriously
    November 28 11:35 PM
  • Chinternet ****ing Knew it. That mother****er doesn't need it half as bad as I do. Thanks for the tip off, I've got to go intercept it before it's too late.
    November 23 05:42 PM
  • Chinternet Dude please let me know if you come across my chin, it's a cruel world out there and I'm real worried
    November 23 04:32 PM
  • TheSpaceMan (;
    November 23 03:11 PM
  • TheSpaceMan you know, you really embarrassed me back there in front of all my friends
    November 23 03:05 PM
  • onionbubs No not yet. I'll give them a spin at some point before the new record comes out tho
    November 23 06:17 AM
  • Futures idk but it's an awesome painting. would make a cool tattoo
    November 22 11:44 PM
  • Futures ok? lol why would i know that lol
    November 22 11:41 PM
  • onionbubs s*** man hopesfalls been one of the only things ive been jamming all day sattelite years is incredible dude
    November 22 09:09 PM
  • LoLifant thanks dude!
    November 22 02:28 AM
  • DinosaurJones Storm, are you really behind all these goddamn alts? You are being accused.
    November 21 02:56 PM
  • Futures you're the prime suspect still tbh
    November 21 12:04 AM
  • Relinquished fair guess lol plus for as long as you've been here you would've done a con by now
    November 20 08:51 PM
  • Relinquished mmm rather not
    November 20 08:41 PM
  • Relinquished lol were you really behind that bs?
    November 20 08:34 PM
  • SowingSeason haha I prob will, Rise Against is one of those "everything is a 3.5" bands for me but they do have a few albums that exceed that
    November 20 12:49 AM
  • SandwichBubble t. a very well-educated 'sputnikker,' as you can clearly see haha. Studying classical music sounds pretty sweet, bet you listened to a lot of good pieces.. still don't know much about the 'genre' myself, so I always respect those who know more about it than I :)
    November 17 01:52 AM
  • Emim Lol I had forgotten about that guy!
    November 17 01:49 AM
  • Futures yeah dude it's amazing and hilarious. from gleeful smug cheer to suicide watch. it's glorious.
    November 16 03:17 AM
  • Futures holy **** this is class
    November 16 01:55 AM
  • Futures looks intriguing
    November 16 01:42 AM
  • Futures lol it's the art that inspired casually dressed bro
    November 16 01:36 AM
  • Futures what? lol
    November 16 01:34 AM
  • Futures you dig my new av
    November 16 01:30 AM
  • GMarques Thanks for the recommendation, song is great! Will hear the entire album asap.
    November 15 08:15 PM
  • Tyler. I remember listening to that back in high school haha but I should revisit it cause band is ace I agree
    November 15 06:31 PM
  • Tyler. Never thought theyd return
    November 15 02:48 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist the truth
    November 15 09:38 AM
  • Frippertronics as said by the words of legend, "A CONVERGE ALBUM - SO ****ING BRUTAL"
    November 15 06:30 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd If I'm listening to their whole discog they better be ****ing good.
    November 15 03:30 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Not very familiar with earlier hardcore but yes to the second question.
    November 15 03:03 AM
  • Futures did you do it
    November 15 02:58 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Which is the best starting album? Satellite Years?
    November 15 02:55 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Well you caught me with that one damn
    November 15 02:53 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Welp.
    November 15 02:36 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd What? Why?
    November 15 02:30 AM
  • Hellscythe aight, will definitely check those out too
    November 14 09:34 PM
  • Hellscythe yeah that's the main reason I'm gonna hold off on the others
    November 14 09:31 PM
  • Hellscythe that's the plan actually, gonna listen to their last 3 LPs in order
    November 14 09:26 PM
  • Futures sweet gonna jam.
    November 14 09:11 PM
  • BlackMalachite I'm not gonna lie, I really didn't enjoy your new track that much. The distortion was lovely, but to me there wasn't anything particularly captivating about it. Also the drum tone sounded very weak.
    November 14 04:54 PM
  • BallsDeep i dig it. pretty stochastic but it held my attention and i'm not too partial to experimental drone/noise s*** normally. I prefer some of your other recent stuff tho
    November 14 09:50 AM
  • Futures lol of course it's a pr move. i like his rhetoric since he's won though. a lot more calm. his victory speech was good. he is already starting to walkback his more controversial s***.
    November 13 11:02 PM
  • Futures a lot of republican establishment still despises him that didn't go away lol. plus the senate is a 51-49 majority and now flake, lee and the almighty rand paul are now key swing votes.
    November 13 10:57 PM
  • Futures lowkey trump is gonna be an ok president most likely. he is handcuffed by congress. will probably be better than bush.
    November 13 10:51 PM
  • Futures can't everyone get behind deporting criminals? even gary was for that.
    November 13 10:47 PM
  • Futures lol did you see he said he wants to run for office recently?
    November 13 10:31 PM
  • Futures lol. thought your new song was really good man btw
    November 13 10:19 PM
  • Futures yeah i would think he is socially inclusive and fiscally conservative. he would fit right in and if he knew policy he could definitely do very well.
    November 13 08:20 PM
  • Futures i think the lp will get a few major party switches though and will probably be someone unexpected.
    November 13 08:14 PM
  • Futures a mix of unrealistic and realistic. jeff flake current senator for arizona usually votes with rand and is one of the most socially tolerable republicans, justin amash rep from michigan pretty much libertarian but a republican in congress, dwayne the rock johnson (no joke) he has said he is interested in running for office and is a registered repub, i imagine he is more libertarian than republican. nicholas sarwark current chair of the libertarian party. those are the ones that come to mind.
    November 13 08:13 PM
  • Joeman82 Recs are pretty amazing so far from what I've had. I put them all in a random number generator, and I'd say it's done me pretty well because almost everything I've listened to that is a rec has gotten a 3.5 or higher, most are a 4 or 4.5.
    November 13 02:05 PM
  • SandwichBubble To even think he would pass this year... just heartbreaking.. R.I.P. to a trailblazer
    November 13 12:27 PM
  • Joeman82 Only recently relalized how the whole shoutbox system works because I'm a dips***. I just wanted to say thanks for the comment my man, it makes me feel appreciated, and welcome in the community... Well by at least one person, haha.
    November 13 12:49 AM
  • Titan hah!
    November 12 09:22 PM
  • Titan what is that?
    November 12 09:20 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist so when am i going to admit to being my alt me?
    November 12 03:33 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist In the "i dont actually know what it means but it sounds kind of funny" kind of way (p.s. i kind of know what it means but who cares)
    November 12 03:33 AM
  • SandwichBubble You absolute M A D M A N. Had me going, that's for damn sure.
    November 12 12:38 AM
  • SandwichBubble @AngryLittleAlchemist/@talktothehead/@ShinjiIkari THAT is h i l a r i o u s
    November 12 12:24 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd No idea what that means cause I never have had anything to do with AdolfChrist so I wouldn't know.
    November 11 11:38 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd I never accused you of anything like being AdolfChrist or anything like that. I don't do things without having very good evidence beforehand. Like I said, I will continue to talk to you the same as ever cause I don't care, but I know it's your alt.
    November 11 11:35 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd The thing is that it wouldn't be about ALA being smart or crafty for it to work. He would have had to be able to predict the future cause his post was before the one from the other account. That's the part that made me sure about it.
    November 11 11:31 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd I still like you the same man. It's not a big deal.
    November 11 11:28 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Dude I don't think any less of you for being ALA, just wish you'd admit it.
    November 11 10:39 PM
  • Storm In A Teacup I wanted you to see the meme of Bernie in the fields raising his hand lmao. it's immediately visible if you didn't look
    November 10 10:28 PM
  • Futures young turds lol not a chance bud
    November 10 10:21 PM
  • Futures lol
    November 10 10:18 PM
  • Futures lol i believe you. how about that strong showing from gary in your home state? good work :^)
    November 10 12:19 AM
  • Futures please tell me you're not angryautist lol
    November 9 08:03 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd "alt-right" - Which he(you?) then couldn't explain what he was responding to. You two also use similar sentence structures and quirks, like triple question marks and 8's. Bumping to 95% certain.
    November 9 07:25 PM
  • Futures lmao
    November 9 07:21 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd I may be wrong but you've admitted to troll alts in the past and the post "alt-right" could only be coming from one thing. I'm guessing you forgot which account you were using to answer my question in your shoutbox.
    November 9 07:19 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Just cross-referenced some reviews and comments from both accounts and I'm now bumping my certainty up to 90%.
    November 9 07:17 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Prettttttttty sure it's you.
    November 9 07:12 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd I think you know the answer to that. ;)
    November 9 07:10 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd I what?
    November 9 07:09 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Like an 80% chance ALA is your alt.
    November 9 07:06 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Need some emoji analysis up in here.
    November 9 07:04 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Kinda thinkin' you're ALA right now...
    November 9 07:02 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Why did ALA just comment in my shoutbox six minutes before you about a question I asked you?
    November 9 06:36 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd How would you label me? Curious since you said I'm not a libertarian.
    November 9 05:12 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Literally everyone thought they were going to after Scalia's death. Now R's get to pick his replacement, get to replace Thomas before he dies, and likely get to replace RBG if she dies. 6-3 advantage.
    November 9 03:52 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Well, I mean progressives did just lose SCOTUS probably for the rest of their lives...
    November 9 03:47 PM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Sooooo... about those predictions me, you, and Futures made...
    November 9 02:33 PM
  • TheSpaceMan storm, i need you to hop into the video game tourny and drop that halo 3 vote. its paired against overwatch and my god if these kids get that voted above halo
    November 9 01:58 PM
  • Futures lol sorry i can't take the liberal echo chamber here.
    November 9 01:19 AM
  • Futures lol what thread?
    November 8 03:34 PM
  • BlackMalachite The track holds up relatively well, gets a tad bit repetitive on multiple listens though. Sorry it took me a bit to listen.
    November 5 05:35 PM
  • AaroN911 even better! yeah I smoked for 7 years quit (with the help of ecigs) about 2 years ago with some here and there
    November 3 05:11 PM
  • AaroN911 hell yeah! stick to cigs and drank at the worst haha! Yeah I am trying out no drinking for a month becuase of recent health issues... hoping that helps me out!
    November 3 04:45 PM
  • BlackMalachite Sure, go ahead and link me man.
    November 3 03:32 PM
  • AaroN911 Hey man, how's the sober route going for ya?
    November 3 11:27 AM
  • SnakeDelilah no and honestly i don't plan on it
    November 3 02:14 AM
  • Futures thanks so much man love ya.
    November 3 01:56 AM
  • Futures dude you gotta see this lmao
    November 2 02:47 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Yeah my reasons weren't at all related to trying new things or lyrical content. The only time political lyrics bother me is when they're like reallllly obnoxious a la RatM. Nice new 5's btw.
    November 1 12:32 AM
  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd Another Cardinals fan surfaced in my review thread. You're not alone!
    October 31 11:50 PM
  • Futures well i hope it all goes well man!
    October 31 09:52 PM
  • Futures nothing cancerous right?
    October 31 08:36 PM
  • Futures oh man nothing serious right i hope?
    October 31 04:11 PM
  • Futures alright hope whatever it is goes well.
    October 30 11:09 PM
  • Futures you doing alright?
    October 30 11:05 PM
  • Hurricanslash Hey man, sorry for not answering, was barely on Sput the last few days. Congrats on you being drug-free now! I really do hope that your life continues to smooth itself out.^^ About the song, I still plan on doing it, I just need some more time. I haven't quite found the right topic to rap about just yet.^^
    October 30 12:53 PM
  • Futures lmao yes
    October 29 10:42 PM
  • Futures haha so true. it's a shame that debate will never happen. pls 2020 rand rises from the ashes to defeat crooked hillary
    October 29 10:28 PM
  • Futures lol. dude imagine if we got the election we deserved rand v sanders. instead of debating nonsense they would be philosophically debating what the scope of government needs to be and where it should intervene.
    October 29 10:21 PM
  • Futures but like if you could choose someone for pres who best represents you would it be bernie?
    October 29 10:17 PM
  • Futures what about bernie?
    October 29 10:14 PM
  • Futures that's where your most aligned right?
    October 29 10:11 PM
  • Futures think you'll be a dem for life then?
    October 29 10:10 PM
  • ToWhatEnd Thanks bud. Not sure how long I'll stick around, but felt good to finally get 100 out there.
    October 29 10:09 PM
  • Futures curious do you think the greens have any credibility at all?
    October 29 10:07 PM
  • Futures except there is mountains of studies saying wifi is harmless lol

    October 29 03:47 PM
  • StarlessCore nah im saying its a failtroll to TROLL but not have any troll ratings. come on!
    October 29 02:53 PM
  • StarlessCore not even one? failtroll
    October 29 02:49 PM
  • StarlessCore the coheed/anberlin 5s are trolls 2 rite
    October 29 02:22 PM
  • EyesWideShut you love when Westbrook goons out the other teams
    October 29 11:09 AM
  • macman76 made the app, check it in my new list
    October 28 12:27 PM
  • Futures lol what a ****ing moron. god forbid a guy get's upset at demeaning and downright rude questions asked towards him. i'd be sick of it as well.
    October 27 11:30 PM
  • Futures remember when he said we should drone strike assange. good times lol what a hypocrite.
    October 27 10:01 PM
  • FullOfSounds Agreed on bringing all the styles together. That electronic track felt so out of place.
    October 27 08:45 PM
  • FullOfSounds I still think he has room for improvement in places, but it is fantastic anyway
    October 27 08:43 PM
  • FullOfSounds boi I'm with you on Devil is Fine, crazy good alb
    October 27 08:39 PM
  • StarlessCore idk all the post pc era bioware stuff to me sucks and the writing is always so bad, i didnt like origins, but I heard two was so bad even by FANS of the first one. bioware even apologized publicly for what they did with the dungeons. embarrasing haha
    October 27 02:07 PM
  • Futures ah cool will watch. also she is ****ing 44. that is amazing, she looks so good.
    October 27 03:55 AM
  • Futures what segment are you referring to?
    October 27 03:32 AM
  • Futures yeah and he repeats himself a s***load. at least i have a show i can watch on tv kennedy on fox business. she's a libertarian also super hot lol. oh and stossel duh. he's a legend.
    October 27 02:37 AM
  • Futures dude you gotta stop watching that horses*** lmao. secular talk is a good progressive show if you want. i like what he says some of the time. but obv stuff like reason and austin petersens channel are good for libertarian stuff.
    October 27 02:30 AM
  • Futures lol no way it's him
    October 27 01:53 AM
  • BlackMalachite Gotta say that was pretty nice, although I wish some of the more dub-influenced blips came in a little more often.
    October 27 01:35 AM
  • Futures oh they're not going to be happy haha.
    October 27 12:32 AM
  • Futures yeah dude imagine that. weld being the first libertarian in office.
    October 27 12:10 AM
  • Futures anybody would've destroyed trump and anybody would've destroyed clinton lol. also speaking of warren i got some inside info from the mass lp that weld is looking into running for senate in 2018 trying to displace her
    October 26 11:39 PM
  • Futures lol yeah. you know what's funny is fox news has been the least biased coverage this election sycle because they hate clinton and trump for the most part.
    October 26 11:34 PM
  • Futures did you see megyn kelly absolutely annihilating donna brazille? it was uncomfortable to watch.
    October 26 11:28 PM
  • Futures i'm ****ing pissed. he said don't vote for trump vote for us. the msm is disgusting. this cycle has really jaded me so hard.
    October 26 11:24 PM
  • Futures come on you're not buying this nonsense are you?
    October 26 10:55 PM
  • Divaman I see Titan got you in a Yes mood too, eh Storm?
    October 26 08:03 PM
  • Titan Keystudio bro.....also, the second half of big generator has some of those poppy hooks that 90125 had, if you enjoyed 90125
    October 26 07:00 PM
  • Titan yeah man, they have some gems scattered throughout....just have to find em
    October 26 06:51 PM
  • Titan
    October 26 06:36 PM
  • TVC15 How long ago was that? Sounds horrible hah
    October 26 05:03 PM
  • BlackMalachite Lol dude I was thinking of throwing in a rap track on one of the EPs but it didn't fit the theme.
    October 25 12:49 PM
  • Futures holy s*** didn't realize the guys a genius that's crazy. assistant professor at dartmouth and went to mit and cornell. that's insane
    October 25 01:09 AM
  • Futures nah what are they?
    October 25 12:52 AM
  • Futures he probably wants us retards to rot here continuing to expect change lol
    October 25 12:50 AM
  • Futures lol
    October 24 10:09 PM
  • AaroN911 Yeah their roster is packed with Emcee's... I am excited to see what JLB Hood will bring to the table... this will be the first year in like 5 that I will be missing Tech live here.
    October 24 02:36 PM
  • AaroN911 Hey, you a Strange Music fan too? I am not HUGE into it like I use to be but I still follow what they do... Tech was an inspiration musically
    October 24 02:26 PM
  • BlackMalachite You need to emphasize your words more. As Balls said you sound way too muffled, and as a result it makes it hard to listen to. Lyrics are okay and the flow itself isn't bad, it's entirely the muffled speech.
    October 24 12:05 PM
  • BallsDeep yo it's not horrible but there is major room for improvement in terms of flow, unless you were going for an unorthodox sort of speech pattern. Also your vocals are quite muffled and loud relative to the beat (which is pretty dope btw did you produce that?)
    October 24 08:12 AM
  • BlackMalachite The more bass driven last minute of Air Whisper is pretty cool. Overall it's a solid song, but I notice throughout your work that your wub tone is a little too repetitive across various songs.
    October 24 02:27 AM
  • BlackMalachite Lego Sniffer really needs a stronger backing drum line, and not just at the end segment of the song. Dimensional Sniffer is easily the best and most consistent track here, and the sweepy pads really make it a nice listen. Potsicle would be better if the wubs in the middle of the song didn't detract. The plucks in Air and Wind are really chill.
