  • DaveyBoy You superstar. I never did get around to your other EPs. Will do so once the year-end list is out of the way.

  • esther Hey man I noticed you like some of the same bands I do. I wrote and recorded an EP and I was wondering if you could review, rate, or even just listen to it. Here's a link: esther801music.bandcamp.com

    May 16 10:45 AM
  • Wolfhorde Well, one can guess. I still found it to be quite amusing. But I generally like some of the stuff up there.
    May 7 02:09 AM
  • Wolfhorde Considering you're from down yonder I'd guess you're talking about the soccer player Jack Reilly. I believe there was something back before the wall fell.
    May 7 12:38 AM
  • Wolfhorde Well, your music on Bandcamp. Carrie Bickmore's got no soul, I wish I was Jack Reilly. Not 100% sure what exactly I listened to but I probably laughed more than I should have.
    May 6 11:44 PM
  • DaveyBoy He/They will not disappoint. His voice just pierces through everything. And its great to see he has become much more confident as a front man.

    January 19 10:58 AM
  • Tyrael Nah I don't think you're terrible, you're one of the few people on this site that actually doesn't give a crap about what people think of them. That's why I think you're cool.

  • clercqie phew, that's a relief :)
    October 7 07:40 AM
  • clercqie Hey Atavan! You probably heard this already, but what do you think about the fact that Bloc Party is looking for a new singer? (http://www.nme.com/news/bloc-party/59460) I hope this will turn out right, but I'm quite worried...
    October 5 05:07 PM
  • DaveyBoy Hehe. Its called being as sick as a dog and having way too much work on my hands. Arghhhh.
    October 5 02:18 AM
  • Trebor. England is amazing. I really like Skeleton too, it has like an emo feel to it.
    October 5 02:08 AM
  • Trebor. We both love Bloc Party. You should get Another Weekend In The City and Little Thoughts EP if you haven't already
    October 5 02:01 AM
  • DaveyBoy Hello. The last one I remember reading just happened to be Calling All Cars. Hardly ever read the reviews there tbh and I think I already told you why. The only other thing I can recall reading of yours over the past 3 months was your PATD interview, because you warned me it was coming. Brendon seemed pretty cool. Good showman too.
    October 5 01:34 AM

  • Tokyochuchu ESL? Uh.. No. I will let that insult pass because I posted the review unfinished and went to watch pro wrestling before coming back to it. It's finished now, so please have another look and tell me what is wrong!

    July 4 10:35 PM
  • patrickfannon Well, sort of. It's essentially saying, "We have very similar tastes." I see what you mean though; made me stop and think. I guess it's just an ice breaker. Anyway, I need to listen to "Codes and Keys" a bunch more as well, but I was a little disappointed with the first few listens. Have you heard of/listened to "Unknown Mortal Orchestra?" I'm curious to know what you'd think of it. Well, take it easy, man.
    June 28 10:09 PM
  • patrickfannon You rated "Paranoid" and "Transatlantacism" 5's. I'm blown away, man. Great taste. What do you think of the new Death Cab? Were you as let down as I was?
    June 28 09:20 PM
  • SowingSeason haha how did you end up telling us apart
    June 25 08:07 PM
  • DaveyBoy I initially thought it was not as good as Hey Everyone and I am now starting to think its better. Probably both around the same rating though. Make sure you catch John this time, will ya.
    June 25 10:06 AM
  • DaveyBoy Hey DavID, I am just piecing together a new Dananana review. Really growing on me and wondering if you have heard it. If so, what did ya think.
    June 25 09:04 AM
  • Tyrael It was not meant to be an insult. What I meant was that your ratings of pop music tend to be quite forgiving (like for example you giving My World 2.0 a 3.5...).
    June 25 07:28 AM
  • Tyrael Oh yes you did, in the Incubus thread. And I am very grateful to you for that cause he was a major pain in the ass...
    June 21 05:08 AM
  • taylormemer Likin' your blogo. Didn't realise it was there until recently, nice one. I would donate but I'm a student and partially homeless :(
    June 20 01:45 PM
  • Tyrael Oh my god you scared off that damn troll alachlahol. For that you have earned my deepest respect.
    June 17 11:59 AM
  • Xenophanes Rad. Didn't know they had abs in Australia.
    June 14 02:27 AM
  • Xenophanes Indeed. I think I could fancy that ; )
    June 14 01:09 AM
  • Xenophanes Either way, how have ya been? Don't see you around these parts too often these days.
    June 14 01:02 AM

    June 12 09:56 AM

    June 12 09:19 AM

    June 11 07:56 AM
  • FelixCulpa Just check out Grouplove's S/T and thought I'd add to the database and saw it was already there and rated. I who was thinking of rec'ing this to like you and Davey! I can recommend Mixtapes if you are in for some sweet Pop punk, female vox included!
    June 10 02:03 PM
  • andcas check out the alejandro review he did and tell me what you think.
    June 9 10:50 PM

    February 19 08:23 PM
  • Electric City nice with the radiohead soundoff
    February 19 07:26 PM
  • Xenophanes Heartily enjoy your rating and soundoff for Mer de Noms. First album I ever truly "loved."
    February 15 07:52 PM
  • CelestialDust awesome, i really liked accelerate so it'd be a hard one to top for me
    February 14 08:28 AM
  • CelestialDust Hey man, I saw that you rated R.E.M.s Collapse Into Now a 4. Just wondering how you got to listen to it at that listening party you mentioned haha. I hope it leaks soon. Did you feel that it was better than Accelerate?

    February 12 08:45 PM
  • SeaAnemone let me know when you get a chance please
    February 12 01:04 AM
  • SeaAnemone mr. atavanhalen, sir, the contribs are getting the process started for sounding off on the soon-to-be-chosen user '10 list and i'm organizing a thread on facebook to include all the new contribs in this process (we've had another one going for a while this is just a continuation) and I'm assuming you want to help with the soundoff process? if you don't want me to friend you on fb or whatever (I think I tried before for this) that's fine no offense taken I can keep youd thru emails maybe..
    February 12 01:01 AM
  • DaveyBoy Yes, I knew a week ago. Unfortunately, it looks like I will not be able to go as am going away for easter long weekend. Doh.

    February 1 08:42 PM

    January 17 06:31 AM
  • Anthracks you really don't even have to ask me to go see cher i'll just magnetize there
    January 16 01:23 PM
  • Romulus it was enjoyable. i really like the vibe they create, especially in the first track. definitely preferred the longer tracks compared to when they settled into a groove if that makes sense
    January 16 01:07 PM
  • Anthracks we should date
    January 16 01:07 AM
  • DaveyBoy You should know me better by now. It takes me at least 3 months to get to a reco. And I will not hold it against him. I like Adam Lamber. I mean, Adam Lambert makes good music.
    January 14 10:54 PM
  • Knott- Literally never heard that awful, awful song before. Why did you have to introduce it to my life?
    January 14 10:42 PM
  • Knott- I don't even know what the **** that was.
    January 14 10:37 PM
  • Romulus so apparently you got promoted to something or other but i'm not really sure because it wasn't huge news and all over sputnik or anything like that, so in essence i'm not totally sure what i'm congratulating you for
    January 14 10:34 PM
  • EVedder27 Congrats David, you've deserved this for some time.
    January 14 10:33 PM
  • SowingSeason Atavan, my man...I am excited to have you joining us at the contributor level (although IMO you could/should have already been here). anyways, congratulations!
    January 14 09:45 PM
  • BigHans Congrats
    January 14 12:34 PM
  • Metalstyles We've always had our differences and we always will have them, but I just wanted to congratulate you on your promotion as it's definitely deserved. Now if you'd excuse me, I have a s***ty music Friday ahead of me so congrats again and I'm outa here.
    January 14 09:49 AM
  • omnipanzer Gratz on the promo
    January 14 09:34 AM

    January 14 09:24 AM

    January 14 06:37 AM

    January 14 05:27 AM
  • Lucid Congrats Atavan! I've always liked your reviews :)
    January 14 01:38 AM
  • Awesomesauce Hey man, congrats on the contributor promotion! Well deserved. Looking forward to some quality reviews this year.
    January 13 11:27 PM
  • Crisis Yeah you probably haven't, our genres don't cross (I'm more black metal, death metal, etc), but nonetheless good to have you with us.
    January 13 11:24 PM
  • Crisis I'm Crysis, but I'm banned for two weeks so just made this account for now. But yeah, welcome to the Contributor fold.
    January 13 11:00 PM
  • Crisis Congrats Atavan, it was a long time coming but glad you finally got the promotion.
    January 13 10:29 PM
  • Ponton About time. You've been s***ting on the rest of us for years with your quality grade-a reviews. Congrats!
    January 13 10:09 PM
  • conradtao Dude, congratulations!! Very well-deserved and your app was all kinds of awesome.
    January 13 09:13 PM
  • DaveyBoy It was a couple of random confusing comments I made to you on LastFM. And I will not let you dismiss it so easily, as you always said you would never be promoted back. Name of Scott Spark rings a bell. I think I saw a local review. Ta for reco and congrats again.
    January 13 09:04 PM
  • Fugue Congrats David, a most deserved promotion.
    January 13 08:59 PM
  • DaveyBoy So now you know what I was on about a couple of months back. Hehe. I am a one man campaign manager. Actually, it may have started that way, but I eventually got some back up. To my surprise. LOL.
    January 13 08:47 PM

    January 11 02:01 AM
  • Xenophanes "It sucks that you keep getting negged regardless of what you post man. For what it's worth, I think you're an amazing writer."Been saying that s*** for awhile, Irving!
    January 11 01:39 AM
  • robertsona i think i may have slipped this by you but i've been trying to get people to listen to corinne bailey rae's 2010 album "the sea" just because it's so good and nobody has ;_; and though i rarely post on people's shoutboxes about stuff like this it strikes me as an album you would love so yeah! also concurred on the new bspears
    January 10 11:26 PM
  • Irving It sucks that you keep getting negged regardless of what you post man. For what it's worth, I think you're an amazing writer.
    January 10 04:28 PM
  • DaveyBoy Name dropper. Nah, I am interested as she is extremely talented. That answer is a little non committal I guess. I think she will continue trying to cross genres, but her name in mainstream lights will be too difficult to ignore. Good luck to her though, she deserves it.
    January 9 05:40 PM
  • Defeater lmfao
    January 5 03:52 PM
  • musicConsumer lol... I didn't even look at your list. I was just ****ing with you, man.
