    September 25 01:18 PM
  • BrandNewEyes Is it? I guess so.
    September 25 03:22 AM
  • Futures this is a grand old time
    September 25 03:16 AM
  • grindcorecore thanks for the rec mate it's fantastic
    September 24 11:57 PM
  • BlackMalachite That was a really fun thread.
    September 24 11:51 AM
  • MyNameIsPencil sweeeeet thanks dude!
    September 24 04:49 AM
  • BlackMalachite Hey man did you ever decide on a rating for my new album?
    September 23 02:29 AM
  • theNateman This isn't officially released is it? It feels more than a little fan made at times
    September 23 02:12 AM
  • theNateman Its definitely one of my top ten records of all time. I need to find myself a vinyl copy so bad. and wait. There's a movie that goes along with it???
    September 23 01:16 AM
  • Futures hey no prob dude. idk if you saw my bump on your list but i really dug the song you made.
    September 22 03:19 AM
  • Futures ah jesus christ man i'm so sorry to hear. if it means anything i'm always here to listen.
    September 22 03:11 AM
  • Futures good talk bud. i hope everything is alright you seem stressed out.
    September 22 03:06 AM

    September 20 02:18 PM
  • BallsDeep cheers for that offer bro, hate to disappoint but I dont think I'll be recording anything for a while. My passion for producing hip hop has waned over the last few years and I'm alot more partial to metal and the band project i've recntly started, plus i've got legit nothing to record with atm as all that stuff was done at my mates (who produced the beats) whom ive sadly had a falling out with/havent talked to in about 2 years. I'm not gonna say never tho just not now. that was a dope beat btw
    September 20 01:41 PM
  • Hurricanslash Will do, man, will do, s*** is wavy and smooth as hell, I dig it.
    September 19 03:38 PM
  • Futures about to head to sleep will check it out tomorrow dude!
    September 19 03:47 AM
  • BallsDeep nah although I've had a couple of accounts in my time here which either got banned or I forgot my password to. I sorta regret this username though, I'm considering taking up regular reviewing which I'll probably do under a slightly less ridiculous pseudonym
    September 18 03:01 AM
  • Futures huh i had no idea. you know another cool thing about gary is when he was governor some dude who gave him money was yelling at him for vetoing a bill he wanted through. gary then takes out his checkbook and offers him a refund. dude walks away haha.
    September 16 07:54 PM
  • Futures lol yeah you have to watch him in a more natural environment. i'll find a good link when i get home.
    September 16 05:22 PM
  • Futures do you believe the fuel industry should be deregulated and let the free market decide the best fuels? some are cheaper than gas so they should win out. and how about ending big oil subsidies?
    September 16 05:04 PM
  • Futures don't you think so?
    September 16 04:58 PM
  • Futures nuclear power is cheap dude and eco friendly when it doesn't go wrong. it's the way of the future. chernobyl and fukashima happened because of massive worker incompetence.
    September 16 04:54 PM
  • Futures lol it's a quote from jill stein. how can you actually believe that?
    September 16 04:48 PM
  • Futures nuclear power plants are literally wmds bro
    September 16 04:40 PM
  • Futures garys stance on global warming? he believes that it is happening and we are contributing and is open to free market solutions to fixing it. what's wrong with that?
    September 16 03:19 PM
  • Futures lol he is a lino. a real libertarian judge would be andrew napolitano.
    September 16 02:22 AM
  • Futures thiel claims to be libertarian? lol
    September 16 02:17 AM
  • Futures nice i will check them out dude!
    September 16 01:00 AM
  • Futures and based on your ratings you should jam oh, sleeper- when i am god you would love it
    September 16 12:51 AM
  • Futures been meaning to jam them for awhile tbh. i really should
    September 16 12:50 AM
  • Futures every socialist i've met just says "libertarian lol dismissed"
    September 15 11:12 PM
  • Futures glad you can actually discuss politics without name calling or being an ass
    September 15 10:30 PM
  • zaruyache I was like 80% sure it was Coheed but I wasn't confident enough to take a chance of looking dumb. With hair like that tho there're only a few guys it could be :3
    September 8 10:36 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa I mean I mostly rep metal but I am always down to jump in on a Coheed discussion. Neverender was the album that made me a fan. Also got me into live music in general.
    September 8 10:28 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa Nah, your best moment was getting me into Coheed and Cambria 8 years ago.
    September 8 09:58 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa No it sounded bitchy, you're right haha. Every time I see you, I'm just amazed that you're still around. And you never seem to step on anyone's toes or cause any s***. Nobody ever says anything bad about you.
    September 8 09:55 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa You're taking me the totally wrong way. I think you're clutch. Your longevity has always impressed me. I didn't mean to insult you man. You are literally a part of my childhood. I'm sorry.
    September 8 09:50 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa I mean you've been around FOREVER, but you don't post or rate nearly as much as the regular users. I mean s*** I remember your posts from when I was 14. But you've never been an influential user here. Pretty niche.
    September 8 09:33 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa Who am I kidding, you're probably the most minimalist user in history.
    September 8 09:24 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa Oh. Yeah I don't rate that much music. 666 albums in 6 years with this account. I don't have anything new to rate so might as well leave it
    September 8 08:43 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa I don't even have a gimmick
    September 8 08:33 PM
  • Futures good talkin politics with you dude

    August 27 09:30 AM
  • Futures yep it's a really solid album.
    August 26 04:24 PM
  • Futures oh nice! i really dig it might be part nostalgia but i recently relistened and dug it pretty hard still.
    August 26 03:20 AM
  • Futures haha. i haven'td my ratings in ****ing forever. probably got at least 100 or 150 to add.

  • SnakeDelilah says the man-child edgelord who literally posted on my shoutbox to indirectly say that i suck for no discernible reason
    August 19 12:27 PM
  • SnakeDelilah yeah I'm sorry I don't talk to cucks who unironically 5'd blurryface

  • BlackMalachite Thank you so much! Only nine days until the new EP is released, and I'm super excited about that.
    August 11 12:20 AM
  • Tunaboy45 I'd love to see Chevelle overtake Tool in terms of popularity, but I think the fans are just too dedicated.
    July 17 06:06 PM
  • EyesWideShut yea man your not kidding... smh at KD and the whole Wade situation was a mess. looks like Russ is going to be on the move too.
    July 14 06:12 PM
  • EyesWideShut At this point im rooting for anybody thats gonna beat The Cavs.. Your Thunder played amazing this playoffs but if it goes to game 7, i really think the momentum changes back to GS.. Either way fuk Cleveland.
    May 28 01:10 PM
  • EyesWideShut yea the Spurs really looked their age at times, you guys were the better team.. and you won game 1 in GS.. When you guys use that "giant" lineup you'll give em a hard time.
    May 17 01:36 AM
  • BlackMalachite Hey dude, I'm sorry to hear about your ex-fiance.
    May 16 03:10 PM
  • EyesWideShut that should be a great series.. still got GS winning but SAS are not playing around, Pop got em ready.

    December 13 04:31 PM
  • SillyCaringRabbitPal does the storm originate from the teacup and expand out or is it all contained within the teacup itself

  • grindcorecore on the real though, i was trying to make a joke but sarcasm doesn't go across well on the internet
    November 25 03:28 AM
  • grindcorecore nah mate my chill is lost
    November 25 03:23 AM
  • TheGreatQ I saw you discovering Twenty One Pilots so I wanted to share a non-album track of theirs. It's one of my favourite things they've done.
    October 22 08:48 PM
  • SnakeDelilah so about that ATR review.....
    March 14 07:29 PM
  • Chin Someone told me about this lol. I don't know how could I have trolled any ratings. I submit my plead of innocence to the mods lol. Anyway..have a good one."I don't know how could I have trolled any ratings."i love you for that
    February 1 08:53 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Probably the ten Blood On The Dance Floor albums you have 1'd, that could get all your ratings wiped by the mods
    February 1 07:48 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hey dude heads up someone reported you for troll ratings in the meds thread, you might wanna change some of them in case the mods decide to wipe them
    February 1 12:05 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man you might be interested in this: - I'm friends with the guy and have gotten some solid post-hardcore recs from this particular write-up. lots of foreign albums on here

    September 7 01:25 AM
  • BMDrummer yeah, it's still kind of a mystery why he left. my guess is ballstothewall's demotion, but he got unbanned recently
    September 4 08:13 PM
  • BMDrummer well of course he left months ago, but i wasn't really active when he was alive

    June 14 08:54 PM
  • Ecnalzen Heck yeah, man! I remembered reading about it way back when, but they didn't have a release date and then I came across it late last week. I've heard most of it; I really like it so far.
    June 11 12:55 PM
  • NeoSpaz how was the cold harsh landscape of non-sputnik land?
    June 11 06:03 AM
  • NeoSpaz welcome back!

    February 27 07:10 PM
  • JokineAugustus I saw your post about being spaced out at the girl on that list. Same thing actually happened to me the other day. Us guys just tend to think slower generally, not that we are dumb, and we get all the flak because of it it seems.

  • ThunderNeutral21 This is the album Anberlin has always been capable of making. I can't say if nostalgia will eventually keep me from preferring this over Cities, but I have to admit this is the strongest overall album Anberlin has ever made. A must listen in 2012.

    September 16 08:33 PM
  • Storm In A Teacup Idk you told me to stop turning this on you...BUT wasn't it you who turned this on me when I talked about your small penis
    September 15 04:13 PM

    September 15 09:59 AM
  • Stokes you clearly care because you're still responding to 10 words with 100
    September 14 09:49 PM
  • Stokes hahaha stop trying to turn this on me you spanner
    September 14 09:03 PM
  • Stokes your constant self-reassurance is hilarious, barely anybody likes you yet you continue to tell yourself otherwise. i await my next 500 word essay.
    September 14 03:49 PM
  • Stokes the increasing length of your replies shows you're pretty mad dude, but dont worry you'll get over your self-esteem issues and that inferiority complex you have
    September 14 03:03 PM
  • Stokes thank you for taking the time to send two messages hours apart and taking me really seriously, so once again, it is you who appears mad
    September 13 09:13 PM
  • Stokes fun as in making the sites worst alts and hanging around with the sites worst users? i'm alright thanks, stay mad though.

  • breakingthefragile Most albums I listen to only twice, There's a lot I've listened to only once. If I really love an album and it becomes a personal favorite I'll obviously come back to it a lot. There's not that many bands as one would think in my ratings as well, I'm a completest, so I'll listen to a band's entire discography, all compilations albums included, so that's one of the reasons why there's so many ratings.
    August 18 04:18 PM
  • breakingthefragile I'm only 18. As I've told other people, for the past 5 - 6 years I decided to dedicate my life to music, and my idea of that commitment was about 7 albums every day. Now that I just found out about sputnik this year, I actually have a place to put my ratings. Had a lot of time on my hands. This pretty much covers it though, I think I've just about rated every album I've heard in its entirety.

  • Damrod There's more in the pipe, we recorded nine new songs that go in a more sophisticated direction in terms of technique and songwriting (think Strung Out as rough direction). But we still have to do vocals and master the whole stuff, and that's still taking some time.

  • Damrod Awesome, just what I love to hear. ;-D I know the producing problem, I never really got the time to record stuff at home in a decent and usable manner. I lack the know-how, not the equipment. A shame actually.I don't know how many years back you mean. If you mean the metalcore band, that's a clear no. But my punk band is already going for four, almost five years so that would be a resounding "yes". You can hop over to to see our ugly mugs and stream some songs.

  • Damrod Nice! Yeah, still playing bass and doing backings and shouts in my band. You're active in a band too or are you doing a one man recording thing?

  • Damrod Hey man, I'm fine, how are you? Lots of work, not much Sputnik-spare-time, but apart from that all is a-ok. =)
