  • AmericnZero02 Hey hey, thanks for the reminder on that one. I read your review the other day but then forgot to actually listen to the record. haha. I'll let you know how much I end up liking it! I'm really enjoying Young Lions' new record if you needed a rec.
    March 30 03:03 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews You gave Black Parade a 4.5? High 5!
    March 28 04:06 PM
  • Toondude10 True, but still I find it ****ing hilarious
    March 28 08:09 AM
  • henryChinaski He was regarded as a great talent, but they say he was bothered about all the media attention and the pressure prominent young Bundesliga players usually get
    March 28 03:56 AM
  • henryChinaski Broich definitely has what it takes to become one of the best. He even played for the German national team a couple of times (back in the day)
    March 28 03:53 AM
  • PorkchopExpress Hey yo, I'm sorry I'm barely on here anymore, and I *just* saw your shoutbox about Tobias Jesso Jr. I saw your review though, and it was great!
    March 28 12:05 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I'd heard "Pour Some Sugar On Me" and "Rock of Ages" a long time ago, but only recently started really listening to their other stuff during the 80's.
    March 27 11:38 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Davey, I've finally gotten around to jamming Def Leppard, and I have to say that I'm pretty damn impressed.
    March 27 11:33 PM
  • Toondude10 I think I found your next Sputnik Discusses blog http://mic.com/articles/113796/this-map-reveals-every-state-s-least-favorite-musician
    March 27 10:13 AM
  • henryChinaski he seems to be pretty popular down under. There's even a movie from a German director about his move to Australia
    March 27 08:59 AM
  • henryChinaski I've been following Thomas Broich's career since he went to Brisbane. He used to play for Cologne which sort of is my hometown
    March 27 08:55 AM
  • schoonda You've given it very high praise I can see! From the few songs i checked I can't say its really doing much for me, might need to give it more time.
    March 26 06:47 PM
  • klap was reviewing this lineup http://www.thebolditalic.com/articles/7109-heres-your-outside-lands-lineup-for-2015 and saw GIVERS?!? they coming out w a new album this year??
    March 26 05:11 PM
  • elephantREVOLUTION geez davey. i'm gonna try to listen to this a couple more times. it better be a grower
    March 25 12:26 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews is it the new emery
    March 24 10:06 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews It wasn't up when I asked D:
    March 24 01:22 PM
  • Cygnatti i guess they kinda phased out. they released a single a year ago with the caption "probably the last sweet trip song ever." which has since then (months after) been edited to "probably NOT the last sweet trip song ever", so there's hope for new material! whether or not in the pop/rock vein of this album, or the idm works of their past material, i'd happily accept!
    March 24 09:07 AM
  • Cygnatti lolololol no i'm not joking. yeah the genre tags don't accurately represent the last album made by the band, barely any shoegaze and no idm whatsoever, and it's basically just a really really good pop rock record with indie sensibilities and synth/electropop thrown in for good measure. not gonna be as immediate or outward as a lot of the stuff you jam but it's a bit more chilled and laid back. i really do hope you dig it. :]
    March 23 07:54 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews Hey DaveyBoy, do you happen to know when this year's best album chart goes live?
    March 23 11:31 AM
  • Cygnatti davey, jam this pls. :] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqPiiRoqfZY

    March 20 12:01 PM
  • elcrawfodor Glad you liked the idea so much, haha! Also, I just put up a review, and as a Staff member would you mind looking over it with any criticisms that you have? Really wanting to improve my writing.
    March 19 07:47 PM
  • elcrawfodor Hmm off the top of my head, I think album artwork would be an interesting topic. The way it relates to the music, whether it should be taken into consideration when we look at the album as a whole, whether or not it means anything when the artwork changes with reissues, etc. I could do a short write up for a prompt if you'd like
    March 19 10:57 AM
  • elcrawfodor Hey man, just wanted to let you know I've really been enjoying the Sputnik Discusses features you've been doing. It's been a great way to start intelligent conversations on here beyond "this riffs hard m/" haha
    March 19 12:41 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot lol maybe he could edit the artist name and put a space or whatever might help
    March 16 06:40 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey davey, dunno how big you are on giving review criticism, but if you're willing to look at my latest and lemme know what you think I'd appreciate it. could use some unbiased feedback once in a while
    March 16 06:24 PM
  • donovan909 I wasn't sure how to reach out to the staff to submit a review, but obviously, it would be total bs to be reviewing myself.... I just released my self-titled debut and posted the link below. It would be an honor (no matter the outcome of the review!) to be reviewed on here.Cheers, Donovanhttps://donovancox.bandcamp.com/releases
    March 11 04:19 PM
  • Crysis Cheers man, really glad you like it as I didn't want to be the guy to derail the series as soon as you let someone else give it a shot. Seems like the discussion will be a lot of long posts so we'll see if we get a lot of people to bite and jump in.
    March 10 08:49 PM
  • klap i enjoyed it for about the first half, but then the conceit sort of wore on me
    March 10 11:53 AM
  • psandy I suppose i didn't quite think of that, but you're right. I'll pick it back up after this new Mouse isn't on constant rotation. Looking forward to your next review, I'm a big fan of yours.
    March 9 08:49 PM
  • psandy Hey, sorry for the late reply. I thought it was an enjoyable listen, I've been thru it about twice. It seems a bit safe to me, nothing no one hasn't heard before, but pretty good nevertheless. Lyrics are very early 80's, probably my main complaint.
    March 9 08:14 PM
  • Atari i'll post in there in a bit. can't really think of any band from my hometown off the top of my head haha
    March 4 03:54 PM
  • Atari alright just wanted to make sure i wasn't stepping on your toes. Cheers!
    March 4 03:23 PM
  • Atari hey man let me know if you decide not to review the new daisyhead because if you're not i might request a feature to get the band some more exposure. Otherwise, it's all yours :]
    March 4 01:38 PM
  • Kiran Just post her video in a Weakerthans thread and you've got a party. Her wry sense of humour alone will make half the site gush!
    March 4 10:44 AM
  • Kiran I'm good, Davey, thanks, and I hope you are too. Re: the record, I have and it is a dream. How is the buzz down under? I bet she's just taking off
    March 3 12:38 PM
  • someguest Definitely. Rehfeldt can play just about anything he wants. I had my ratings wiped quite some time ago. I don't assign ratings to anything anymore.
    March 1 01:14 AM
  • someguest This is probably my favorite from him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7QaKxfa2kI
    March 1 01:07 AM
  • SowingSeason Thanks. I kind of lost interest because I'd keep getting 2-4 users to volunteer for each song, yet practically no one followed through. I haven't given up on it, I've just acknowledged that it may take a really long time because I may find myself filling in a lot of the blurbs that were supposed to be done by the userbase.
    February 25 03:54 AM
  • SowingSeason I have no idea when that converge article will be done, I'm still waiting on user submissions. It could be months haha. So fire away!
    February 25 01:30 AM
  • RadicalEd I only listened to "The Woods" prior to "No Cities to Love" and i wasn't really thaaat keen on it (3.0) although it's highly regarded. I did love "No Cities to Love" though. Try "A new Wave".
    February 22 07:57 AM
  • RadicalEd While were at it, have you heard "No cities to love"? If so what did you think of it?
    February 22 03:41 AM
  • RadicalEd rutracker is a torrent site like piratebay
    February 22 03:11 AM
  • Green Baron yo davey do u got an email or maybe a facebook or any place where we can privately chat about stuff?
    February 20 10:19 PM
  • NocteDominum I hear you, what's next on the reviewing chopping block?
    February 18 06:01 AM
  • NocteDominum Sup Davey.
    February 18 03:46 AM
  • ComeToDaddy It's a fine line to walk too, deeper and more thought provoking topics could scare some people off, because they don't feel qualified/educated enough to talk about it. But there's only one way to find out (; if I come up with any particularly interesting ideas for the column, I'll throw them your way
    February 17 09:27 PM
  • ComeToDaddy Cheers Davey, I'll be looking forward to that post. I've always been a sucker for multi-part albums and concepts, and will have loads to talk about when that happens.Also really loving the 'Sputnik Discusses' feature, it's a great idea to get people more involved. I hope it can maintain this level of popularity and discussion the longer it goes on, will be in there regularly trying to help get the ball rolling

  • Ponton Gotta love acoustic angst jams
    February 12 01:34 PM
  • Voivod Fair enough, I just thought I should make you aware of it :)
    February 7 07:52 AM
  • Voivod Hey man how is it going? I just stumbled upon this news and I think it will be good material for "Sputnik Discusses" - http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/big-shake-up-music-licensing-770512
    February 7 05:55 AM
  • Arcade I think topics of that ilk would be nice breathers between the more protracted and in-depth topics for discussion. Certainly, having a few weeks of more fluffy stuff (favourite summer record, favourite record to listen to on a holiday, etc.) would slide nicely between the more hefty points of discussion. It's working out really nicely so far, so I would definitely encourage you to continue running with what you've got so far :p
    February 6 04:24 AM
  • Arcade an idea for the discussion segment; famous artists from your home town? i think it would make for an interesting seeing how certain cities take pride in their musical heritage.
    February 6 02:09 AM
  • Green Baron davey boy, how has it been
    December 6 12:19 AM
  • Fugue Relegation? Mate if you don't make Europe I don't know what's gone wrong! Clyne looking good for England and all, got a few Sint's mates who are proper chuffed at the moment, and I'd suspect you are too. How's life?
    November 18 06:45 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. Good to know you're still alive and kicking. Don't you go Emeritus on me, ya hear?
    November 17 07:35 PM
  • SowingSeason Miss you around these parts Davey, hope you return soon to review pop and indie with me!
    September 26 05:37 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges You still there, man?
    September 24 02:31 PM
  • Fugue Ahh Saint's'll be fine. Shaped up into a decent transfer window after all imo. Seen Anberlin yet? I'd be interested in your thoughts of the performance. Maybe you could make a list of something...
    September 7 05:30 AM
  • HBFS Ah that sucks! Hopefully you get back into it soon! And yeah, the pies were decimated this year. It's been okay for me though as I've been travelling this year and didn't have to stay in Melbourne where it's all I would hear about!
    September 3 10:26 AM
  • HBFS Hey Davey! Long time no talk, mate. I'm sure you're very happy with your Kangas making the finals. As a Collingwood supporter I can say that I'm gutted with how our season turned out. Time to focus on EPL now for me, haha. Hope all is well!
    August 30 02:16 PM
  • tempest-- are you still alive and kicking, Davey?? idk if you jam Kate Miller-Heidke but she released a new album a little while ago and it's a cracker! worth a listen or two
    August 19 11:57 AM
  • Fugue Made a fantasy team about a month ago and will join the league, although having just logged in I've realised about half my team is now injured so I can't promise to be any meaningful competition though! Lets all hope Southampton smash Liverpool tomorrow though, eh?
    August 16 04:58 PM
  • Fugue I know exactly what you mean in terms of going off music, although I have nothing like computer problems or a newly born daughter as an excuse so I'm worrying it might be permanent. I'm doing okay thank you, although my life in general seems to be stalling somewhat.. I'm hoping to get back on track by getting a new job but the process is just a pain in the ass.
    August 16 04:57 PM
  • AliW1993 Cautiously optimistic about Newcastle. We've done some excellent business, but we still look a little light up front, and the defense is worrying. Should get top half minimum though.
    August 16 06:05 AM
  • AliW1993 I think you'll be alright, the remainder of the squad is much better than most seem to realise, and you've made some decent signings (though 12m for Shane Long is laughable). Mid-table, maybe top half at a push.
    August 16 06:03 AM
  • AliW1993 Will do. How are you feeling about Southampton this year?
    August 14 12:56 PM
  • Fugue How's it going AussieBoy?
    August 8 06:08 PM
  • Thunderkat I have a question, is there a possibility to change my Username? Oh would I have to make a new profile? How does that work? Thank you!
    July 18 12:13 AM
  • SuperstitionFantasy Hey, I was wondering if you could give an opinion on the new Blood on the Dance Floor album? It'd be awesome to see your take on it because I may have rated my review too high. :P
    June 10 10:40 PM
  • Douglas No worries mate, that would be driving me crazy! Hope life is treating you grand my friend!
    May 6 06:01 PM
  • Douglas hey mate, hows life? just a quick one. The band I gig with in melbs just released an EP, any chance you want to have listen and chuck some words on it? It's a john mayer/josh pyke vibe http://paulreid.bandcamp.com/album/vines

    April 24 04:08 PM
  • Brostep Thanks! Same here, sitting pretty up there with my favorite releases of 2014 thus far.
    April 5 07:28 PM
  • cryptside hey friend, if you don't mind checking out my latest review, I would really appreciate any feedback. no worries if not! :)
    April 1 02:38 PM
  • schoonda If you're interested, Ceres debut is out now.http://hobbledehoy.bandcamp.com/album/i-dont-want-to-be-anywhere-but-here
    March 24 07:55 AM
  • Thunderkat Just curious, how does one become staff?
    March 23 02:14 AM
  • Fugue Can never get profile pics to work properly... managed to get this one working though so that's a plus. Cuter chick too.
    March 19 06:57 PM
  • Fugue Hey StaffyBoy, do you know if user name change thingymajigs are or ever have been a thing. Mine's a bit immature for my liking these days, what with me being a stand up member of the community and all that.
    March 18 07:53 PM
  • ASnideReturns Haha, yeahh it's a doozy lol.
    March 17 11:47 AM
  • ASnideReturns Hey Davey, I'm kinda interested in hearing what you think about my review - http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/61473/Black-Veil-Brides-Set-The-World-On-Fire/
    March 16 06:56 PM
  • Waior wanna hear your thoughts, mate. you were properly constructive last time: calebmcalpine.bandcamp.com
    March 15 05:03 AM
  • Guzzo10 Thank you sir! And yeah, that's understandable from your point of view. For me, On the Impossible Past was as close to a classic as possible. Maybe its an American thing, I dunno haha.
    March 14 02:25 PM
  • Guzzo10 Hey, I know we've never really conversed before, but you've always been one of my favorite reviewers here. Probably because of your taste for the same alt rock/pop-punk as me, but I was wondering if you could hook me up with some recs. Along the lines of Menzingers/TSSF/Captain, We're Sinking if you could. Also, thoughts on Menzingers upcoming LP?
    March 14 01:34 AM
  • schoonda 150 minutes, that's cutting it a 'little' short from the promised 3 hours is it not? I still found it ridiculous to give them 3 in the first place, surely 2 would be good enough? I think the main reason I didn't see them is because of the downward slope they have been on, I made an assumption that they'd play quite an amount of their new albums, which I have never really taken any interest in. Also, I really didn't want to miss the Jason Butler show that is letlive.
    March 4 05:22 PM
  • schoonda Was it just me or was the sound a bit dodgy on that stage? When I was watching Finch the sound seemed quite off. I don't find that surprising, still a very young band I guess. How was Green Day? I don't think I could have lasted that 3 hour set!
    March 3 07:52 PM
  • schoonda You got a lot more out of my day than I did thats for sure. How was The Story So Far? Wanted to check them out but my mate wanted to see another band. I thought AFI put on a pretty good set, managed to see a teacher from my old high school in the moshpit!
    March 3 05:59 AM
  • schoonda Glad you enjoyed them, caught the last 15 minutes of their set, was happy. Who else did you catch?
    March 2 05:17 PM
  • AliW1993 Ha! I absolutely despise Allardyce, but he knows how to conduct himself on the touchline... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9k4zvAEFc0
    March 2 07:06 AM
  • AliW1993 Yeah I can definitely see him being hit for the rest of the season, especially since he was warned over his future conduct less than two months ago. I don't think there's any question of it being premeditated to be honest; he clearly just can't control himself on the touchline. Don't get me wrong, it looks bad and sends out a terrible message... though as a fan of the club I found him calling Pellegrini a "****ing old ****" equally, if not more embarrassing.
    March 1 09:26 PM
  • AliW1993 I've kind of got mixed feelings about it all. Obviously he's completely in the wrong and deserves a ban and fine, but for me the whole thing's been blown out of proportion. Personally I don't think the punishment should be any worse than for a player, but of course the problem now is that he can't really discipline the squad having done that himself. All a bit of a mess...
    March 1 08:55 PM
  • TooLateToGoBack They should, hah. It's everything Killing Time was, but better.
    February 22 09:55 PM
  • schoonda I'd struggle to describe it well. My music knowledge isn't quite as extensive as yours, however on the reviews page of their unearthed page, Stu Harvey of JJJ describes them as " Blurring the lines of rock, punk and grunge, Ceres is worth checking out if you're a fan of Daylight, Balance and Composure". So if thats your thing, probably worth checking out.
    February 19 06:19 PM
  • schoonda Davey! Have you heard of Melbourne band Ceres? They are playing the unearthed set at Melbourne SW, I have a feeling you'd really enjoy their stuff.
    February 19 06:23 AM
  • TooLateToGoBack That new Bayside record is so damn good. Probably their magnum opus, imo. I don't think they'll ever make a "classic", and I'm okay with that, so this is the next best thing.
    February 18 11:03 PM
  • klap you doing jezabels right?
    February 17 02:10 PM
  • TooLateToGoBack Sweet, I'll give them a listen -- I also see they just released a new album; sound great from your review. Oh, and I wanted to also drop you a recommendation: http://oldmancanyon.bandcamp.com/Very good Canadian poppy-folk
    February 13 06:26 PM
  • ASnideReturns I thought I should bring this to your attention Davey - http://www.sputnikmusic.com/news/30091/Illumi-Naughty-Debut-Song/
    February 13 12:10 AM
  • LordePots ""lol no it's holy" says your 666th comment!!!" gonna have to let that just chill like that for a bit i think
    February 11 08:16 AM
  • WatchItExplode Did you at least get an advance copy? More Bayside by numbers?
    February 10 05:57 PM
  • WatchItExplode Hey Davey, are you gonna review the new Bayside soon?
    February 10 05:33 PM
  • TooLateToGoBack Also, shout spam, but great 2013 list. Props for placing Local Natives so high - they don't get the love they deserve here - or elsewhere, for that matter. I will say that your placement - and general inclusion of BVB is...questionable, hah.
    February 2 09:45 AM
  • TooLateToGoBack I recall ragging on The End - noting it was "sterile", especially for a group like The Jezabels, but I've definitely grown to really liking it a lot. I dunno, maybe it'll grow on me, and I'll end up really liking it 8 months later like that Misery Signals album from last year!
    February 2 09:43 AM
  • TooLateToGoBack The album definitely comes off like a slow burn - but I'm slowly warming up to it. I'm really enjoying the title track and Psychotherapy but each time I try and sit through the entire album -- all I really want to do is go back and listen to "Prisoner". It's a shame, cause "Prisoner" blew me away the first time I heard it - and still does to this day, but "The Brink" is just "okay" and pretty big disappointment the more I think about it.
    February 2 09:41 AM
  • skoopy48 You really need to hear the latest Life On Repeat album, it's right up your alley.
    January 28 10:48 PM
  • Ponton "river" is usually the attention grabber so give her a go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3k7ZC0-4qE
    January 24 09:51 PM
  • Ponton havent used torrents in years, may make an exception. also theres a chance you may like my dig/avatar/latest review. at the very least youll find a number of good tunes there.
    January 24 09:36 PM
  • iGuter Oh yeah, I read your review and I see our thoughts are pretty much identical.
    January 24 09:01 PM
  • schoonda had a few listens to a few of Living Colour's stuff on youtube, gotta say, pretty groovy, different to my usual style, but on the list for sure.
    January 24 06:44 AM
  • schoonda Sounds like a really cool style, I'll have a look, cheers mate.
    January 24 05:42 AM
  • schoonda Well you've got my attention now, I may have to check them out, what do they sound design like? Yes I believe that is correct actually, the video for that was released on their vevo Page the other day.
    January 24 05:10 AM
  • schoonda I'm still undecided on whether I want to go, would be keen to see glassjaw and letlive, however I think they might have a sideshow together (finch too maybe?) Never really got to check out Alter Bridge, haven't heard of Living Colour, worth checking out? Satellite was the first song they released, not sure if it was lead single.
    January 24 01:50 AM
  • schoonda Hmmm maybe I need to give it a couple more chances, I think when I first heard Satellite it really through me off, it just felt odd at first. That being said I really enjoy Think It Over. Also, are you going to SW this year?
    January 23 06:54 PM
  • iGuter I'm actually going to read your review after I write this. I actually thought Mind Over Matter was a step up from their last album in some ways, but not in every way. When Young the Giant said that the album was a more mature album, I completely agreed. I think it's also a more realized and truer album then the last and the so-called inconsistencies (that I really didn't have a problem with) are fixed in regards to the bitchy critics on their debut. But it is a bit too long.
    January 22 08:45 PM
  • TooLateToGoBack Listen to the new Jezabels record by any chance? I miss the epic and grandiose songs like "Prisoner" and "Hurt Me", which is disappointing, and I think songs like "Time To Dance" and "Beat to Beat" are straight up duds, for the most part. Maybe it's because of huge standard "Prisoner" set, or maybe it needs time to grow, but the album just isn't doing much for me :/
    January 21 07:30 PM
  • schoonda Still haven't properly checked that out yet either! If it makes you feel better Canterbury's only dropped a few days ago. However not too sure on it, it has a different sound from Heavy in the Day. Also, have you heard of Blitz Kids? Their new album would be up your alley I think.
    January 16 04:23 AM
  • schoonda heard Canterbury's latest? Haven't heard their first, but a big fan of Heavy in the Day, not too keen on the new album.
    January 15 11:58 PM
  • Omaha Hehe. The band actually emailed me! They liked my last review so much that they somehow found my personal Gmail account. ;] It's great stuff, man. I'll have a review up in about a week or so. Will we be getting a Davey review anytime soon?
    January 11 12:26 AM
  • Jom Too busy with the blog post!
    December 27 11:19 PM
  • TooLateToGoBack Doing a year end of list anytime soon, Davey? Guessing Hands Like Houses is gonna be somewhere in the top 10? hah

  • Prince1993 thanks for the reply mate.I really don't know who did it. I've never been to the forum before.I made a skype premium accounts giveaway thread and they banned me lol.. no body like free stuff I guess
    December 22 02:58 AM
  • Prince1993 Hey, how you doin mate?I was wondering who I have to talk about lifting my ban from the forum.It's a really big misunderstanding.
    December 21 11:16 PM
  • Fugue so yeah, recs? Or you been so out of it this year you don't have any?
    December 7 01:07 PM
  • Fugue Ahh come now, there's far worse than One Direction out there.
    November 30 06:33 PM
  • Fugue I guess so, it's not too bad it's just that I think I can do better, but it'll do for now. So have you got a little DaveyBoy or a little DaveyGirl? Must be a pretty awesome experience either way, although undoubtedly knackering!
    November 28 01:01 PM
  • Fugue Yeah sounds fair enough I guess, just beat Chelsea at the weekend please. I'm good too thanks, settled in a job with no prospects, but at least that means I can look for a better one with at least some money coming in, and I now have a little more time for music again. A new arrival? If that means what I think it does then congratulations pal!

  • Fugue ****ing cricket
    November 24 09:05 AM
  • Fugue Hey dude how's it going?
    November 24 09:01 AM
  • TooLateToGoBack Listen to the new I See Stars by any chance? lol
    October 25 01:16 AM
  • TooLateToGoBack Any plans to review the new Hands Like Houses album? I see you're quite the fan of the album.
    October 20 11:36 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Good to see someone else who really likes "Feel" by Sleeping with Sirens. That album is unfairly hated. I guess I UNDERSTAND the hate, but I strongly disagree with it.

    September 7 10:01 AM
  • Deviant. Yeah, I never got into them (or were even aware of them) until they started getting stadium famous, but now I'm pretty much hooked
    September 3 08:37 PM
  • schoonda it's pretty diverse in the sound they have, better than most EPs, however I wish they had more songs that were similar to Sex EP (You, Milk)
    September 3 07:20 PM
  • schoonda checked out the 1975's debut yet?
    September 3 07:29 AM
  • Douglas Hey mate, sorry have been in the wilderness, I am not really much of a fan of Vance Joy so can't really comment on his story sorry mate
    August 22 12:42 AM
  • SowingSeason Of course I'm in charge of music! And you're actually right about the deeper meaning, I knew I wouldn't be able to write as many reviews with all the changes happening, and when I do have free time, it is always put towards something less fun now :-(
    August 6 12:00 PM
  • Captain North Finally listened to the new Editors, probably their best album. Lyrics are mostly awful, but instruments and his voice are great. The middle part of the album in particular is fantastic, it drops off a bit at the end. What is This Thing Called Love is probably the best song they've ever written
    August 6 06:39 AM
  • AliW1993 Yeah I'd meant to review it sooner, but never got around to it. I doubt it would have generated much interest anyway, to be fair.
    July 29 03:48 AM
  • AliW1993 I see you rated the new Frankie
    July 28 06:20 PM
  • Cygnatti are you gonna review the dangerous summer's new album, davey?
    July 8 02:22 PM
  • Pndi I don't think so, I got a 256kbps rip (from Itunes ) that was converted to VBR mp3. Not sure if you're the one who said that, but do you know what happened during the recording process ? It's really strange that the production sounds like that whereas the EP sounded fine.
    July 7 01:08 PM
  • iGuter Oh, alright I see your bias opinion on their change, great insight.
    June 11 03:57 PM
  • Omaha It's pretty great, but I don't see it sticking with me like it has with you. It may be around 8th for me, I don't know-- there have been so many fantastic releases this year that it has a ton of competition.
    May 30 10:38 PM
  • Omaha Yo, pleased to see you like K Sera so much! Maybe they'll end up on the staffers' 2013 if we're vocal enough ;]
    May 29 01:23 PM
  • iGuter I've got to ask you man. Didn't you think the last I See Stars album sounded more solid and refined then their previous albums. It was heavier, progressed a little more and was far more confident. Granted, it's not great or anything, but I thought it was good and a little better than average. I'd be more proud to say that they're revolutionizing "electronicore" (not to proud of that word in music today) better than most bands out there. Cough cough Attack Attack!
    May 23 04:11 PM
  • schoonda are you seeing funeral for a friend tomorrow night davey?
    May 13 07:26 AM
  • AmericnZero02 Oh jeez, I feel like I'm becoming one of those jaded elitist music fans now.
    May 12 04:54 PM
  • fish. I think it's streaming somewhere. I'm gonna try to review it if I feel I can
    May 2 07:47 PM
  • fish. Have you heard Arcane Roots? I get the feeling they'd be right up your street
    May 2 11:59 AM
  • Willie No problem. Just giving you the option.
    April 23 04:17 PM
  • CaptainHadouken Well they have it on amazon as well, but good god trying to find an album stream is a freaking a pain.
    April 23 10:05 AM
  • CaptainHadouken Yeah it can be a pain in the ass, but living in europe it was a lifesaver trying to get music due to the whole out of country music laws online. I'll look around for another source.
    April 23 09:57 AM
  • CaptainHadouken For Vesper belle?, believe it or not it was on I-tunes
    April 23 09:07 AM
  • Willie Want to do an e-mail interview with Super Water Sympathy?
    April 22 04:03 PM
  • schoonda by the way, check out the 1975, deaf havana have been talking them up a bit, and their debut is due later this year.
    April 22 05:58 AM
  • schoonda glad you're enjoying it, they are exceptional and i think they will go far, with plenty of support from Radio.However, as you said, EP and LP are on par, the replay value for me on both isnt as fantastic as i would like to hope.
    April 22 05:57 AM
  • schoonda see you've been listening to mallory knox's debut, thoughts?
    April 21 02:29 AM
  • Hep Kat i think you would enjoy this: http://peeplewatchin.bandcamp.com/
    April 20 05:41 AM
  • AmericnZero02 Hey man, have you checked out the new Conditions record yet?

  • NocteDominum Teach me to staff?
    April 3 04:59 AM
  • NocteDominum You'll have to read my review, I just got to wait for Alex B. to drop his dib so I can post it (approx 1100 words : /)
    April 3 04:41 AM
  • NocteDominum Hey dude, Pt.2 is going to confuse you more than pt.1
    April 2 07:55 PM
  • ReturnToRock Hey Davester, I know you like punk pop and I just discovered these guys, who don't bore me like most other current bands of the genre. Maybe it's because they sound less emo and more like MxPx (A LOT like MxPx, in fact) or New Found Glory. Anyway, they have two of their four releases up for free download, so check them out: http://therealdanger.bandcamp.com/
    March 25 07:33 AM
  • ReturnToRock I literally just made the connection between your username and the British Bulldog being in your profile image yesterday. LOL I'm an idiot.
    March 23 12:01 PM
  • NocteDominum I've been lookin' no luck though. Til then back to the black metal I go. Help me out if you find one?
    March 20 07:54 AM
  • NocteDominum Me neither, I was hoping you guys had a promo I could 'borrow'?
    March 20 05:06 AM
  • skoopy48 Hey Davey you should check out the band Brighten for pop punk ish stuff. They started out rockier but are now pretty much acoustic. Still I've been digging their stuff lately
    March 19 10:40 PM
  • NocteDominum part 1 or two?
    March 18 05:36 PM
  • NocteDominum Nice sstone sour rates ; ]
    March 18 07:36 AM
  • schoonda Davey! i need some post hardcore recos! enjoy soundwave?
    March 13 07:11 AM
  • NocteDominum A combination of no lunch, huge croud, the sun was blasting the moisture out of the air and three shirts on lol (shoulda known better) still held onto the drumstick i managed to catch beforehand though. I have no recollection of being pulled over the barrier and found myself on a stretcher in the aid tent
    February 25 07:13 AM
  • NocteDominum Yeah I remeber it's one of your usuals, I'll be doing what I can but considering I was unconcious for the start of Stone Sour things might come up a little hazy
    February 25 06:54 AM
  • NocteDominum Are you doing a show review or something?
    February 24 09:04 PM
  • NocteDominum Thanks dude, doesnt mean im going to stop aiming. Have yiu had your Soundwave yet, stay away from flairs
    February 24 04:22 PM
  • andcas well darn. I have to put up with a few miscreants around these parts at times but other than that I'm pretty straight laced on here. I guess 2 or 3 nods is better than none.
    February 24 06:33 AM
  • andcas I appreciate the mention. any insight as to why I was passed over in the end?
    February 24 06:08 AM
  • andcas interesting outcome of the deliberations. hopefully I make it next time.
    February 24 04:32 AM
  • Curse. If you haven't yet, check out Untamed Beast by Sallie Ford and The Sounds Outside. You should dig it.
    February 22 06:24 PM
  • NocteDominum In the same boat, most of the bands i wanted to see are either dropping out or kicking out members.
    February 21 03:42 PM
  • NocteDominum You SoundWaving man??
    February 20 10:39 PM
  • dimsim3478 Don't worry, the Billy Talent set will be sure to keep me scene. :)
    February 18 07:25 AM
  • TooLateToGoBack Davey, would you give The Pierces - Love You More a listen and tell me what you think? Thanks. I heard them on a UK concert show and fell in love with that track, lol.
    February 15 03:06 PM
  • schoonda Ah OK, unfortunately for you your tastes are a lot broader than mine. My main 3 in blink deaf Havana and blackout lineup nicely. Surprised to see tbo main stage?
    February 13 07:04 AM
  • schoonda Yes I saw them once back when they were here with lostprophets, travelled all the way to Sydney with my dad because I was underage! It was actually that gig that got me into heavier music. Hoping they play a lot of older stuff though. Who you plan to see on the day? :)
    February 13 06:32 AM
  • schoonda I'm glad you agree with me, I think that the album is very catchy in parts but like you said, it lacks depth and some songs sound too samey. definitely their worst but im still seeing them at soundwave.
    February 12 08:05 PM
  • andcas you should check out my latest review and the album. sure you'd like both.
    February 3 04:31 PM
  • Sanders Have you heard Mallory Knox pal?
    February 3 10:55 AM
  • Sanders Have you heard Mallory Knox pal?
    February 3 10:54 AM
  • THIEF Bummer. Well I am looking forward to reading your opinion!
    February 2 07:23 PM
  • nononsense Could you review Heroes For Hire's No Apologies or put an extended sound off on my review? I'm intrigued to hear your thoughts.
    February 2 03:40 PM
  • klap lol i actually didn't even check if they were in it : (
