  • fallenbird Let's hope 1989 has some jewels on it like Red with State Of Grace and Begin Again
    August 18 07:48 PM
  • fallenbird Understandable. She was much better that the pop rock/ country on Speak Now. But I felt the biggest problem with Red (outside of some really poorly written songs like Stay, Stay, Stay) was that it was a pop album trying to still be a country album. And I do agree that the lyrics are pretty s*** on Shake It Up. Be prepared to hear it every other song on pop radio stations.
    August 18 07:38 PM
  • fallenbird Nice, how do you like the single? I think it's alright but the line "haters gonna hate" makes me cringe so much. At least she's embracing the fact that she is 100% pop now.
    August 18 07:27 PM
  • emester you alright there man ? XD
    August 18 06:51 PM
  • fallenbird New Taylor Swift album and single! Just thought you should know seeing that we both love Speak Now.
    August 18 05:13 PM
  • MalleusMaleficarum Draft Room is open! Feel free to join for some pre-draft banter lol
    August 17 09:07 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks. Yeah, it is a pain in the ass. Probably why I've just completely stopped listening to most "core".
    August 16 11:29 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, what'd you think of my review?
    August 15 05:11 PM
  • Judio! Awesome, no prob! I actually realized the first time I sent the email, I sent it to sowingseason@gmail.com so no wonder you didn't get it lol. Sorry about that.
    August 15 12:47 PM
  • Judio! Hey man, did you get my email for the Jane Doe spotlight that I sent to you today? Want to make sure it went through this time.
    August 15 04:01 AM
  • theacademy i wrote a handful of unspectacular reviews across a few different accounts but i'm, for the most part, just here scrub hate comments and to re-write bad news articles ;)
    August 14 09:45 AM
  • ProjectFreak wait what you don't love The Hotelier? very intriguing
    August 10 07:36 PM
  • fromtheinside i'm sorry
    August 10 01:31 AM
  • RoyalImperialGuard Kelvin with he sick grab. He's gonna be a beast.
    August 9 04:59 PM
  • MalleusMaleficarum Yeah true; like what if all the best teams end up in one division? I'll just leave it as is. Keep me posted on your draft availability; we want a full draft room this year
    August 9 04:09 PM
  • MalleusMaleficarum Sweet. I was thinking about dividing the league into two 5-team divisions. Ive never done it before but I think it would be cool lol
    August 9 03:27 PM
  • MalleusMaleficarum This is odd, I didn't have to approve any of the other people I invited. Either way, I think all should be good now.. just check your email
    August 9 02:19 PM
  • MalleusMaleficarum I sent the invitation link. Its right here: https://yho.com/nfl?l=373891
    August 9 01:23 PM
  • MalleusMaleficarum Hey man. The draft is currently set for next Sunday (Aug 17). Let me know if this presents any conflicts for you. https://yho.com/nfl?l=373891
    August 9 12:23 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot http://martyoreilly.bandcamp.com/album/pray-for-rain
    August 9 11:33 AM
  • klap beautiful
    August 8 02:26 PM
  • fromtheinside i expect you to have no qualms with either of us. but we can't get into those staff threads we don't know dude
    August 7 07:05 AM
  • fromtheinside we've moved on. just know i love u : )
    August 7 06:59 AM
  • fromtheinside i will NOT let you cop out of this one
    August 7 06:51 AM
  • Judio! Have you checked out the new Musk Ox album yet? If not that's cool too, but I think you'd really dig it.
    August 6 10:42 PM
  • klap i can't really remember why it never grabbed me but i'll def give it another go
    August 5 11:17 PM
  • klap i could never get into frightened rabbit but i'll check it out sounded good. should probs give that band another try too it's been a while
    August 5 11:08 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Thanks, yeah I've mostly tried to avoid sounding too fanboyish but at the cost of being a bit too dry maybe... Appreciate the input
    August 5 07:23 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Cool man. Any chance you could give me a couple review tips, particularly my blue breath review if you get a chance?
    August 5 07:02 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Ah, fair enuf
    August 4 03:44 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot So any concluding thoughts on that Bellows lp?
    August 4 03:14 PM
  • RoyalImperialGuard Carolina's biggest hurt is the O-Line, if they hold up there then 11 or wins wouldn't be unrealistic. They were a bottom of the barrel receiving team last year so they can't get any worse than that. Unless I speak too soon. However, I'm confident their receiving game will be better but we'll just have to see if that's truth or wishful thinking.
    August 4 01:25 PM
  • RoyalImperialGuard I'll be honest, I have confidence in Carolina's recievers. Cotchery and Avant won't be spectacular but if they can catch then they'll be better then Ginn and LaFell. It's a gamble but I feel like Tavvares King, Underwood or that white guy with the blonde hair will be solid.
    August 4 09:14 AM
  • trackbytrackreviews Mr Sowing you've been around no? Do you happen to know what's the oldes review on the site
    August 3 07:15 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks! Yeah, the whole "one review a month" thing isn't really an accurate guideline. You need to have 25-30 to become a major candidate, if memory serves me well. Plus, you have to review new releases as well.
    August 1 09:13 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hmm. I oughta listen to their good stuff more, then. On another note, I recently just got my first featured review!
    August 1 07:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I thought so. You big on Modest Mouse?
    July 31 10:04 AM
  • Faraudo Yeeah, i'm digging it even more with every listen, it's a really song-oriented affair, but at the same time, it feels loosely conceptual, melancholic, etc. And thanks to your review, I got to hear it so... Thanks!
    July 31 02:05 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Just out of curiosity, what's the difference between "Astronauts" and "The Astronauts"?
    July 30 09:57 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I love it, because it's obviously a well-composed, well-done song. However, the first time I listened to it, I turned up the volume on my headphones during the acoustic part near the end........ I fell out of my chair.
    July 30 07:25 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Lmao. Yeah man I'm telling you, the s***'s good
    July 30 07:23 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Good point.. I can see that. He kinda utilizes the main 'hook' on Change by Night a bit too much, but I thought there was enough going on that it was forgivable. But yeah, it's definitely a pop album at its core
    July 30 07:19 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Interesting..how so?
    July 30 07:13 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah if there's anything I'd criticize the album for, it's that he never quite commits to a theme but oh well
    July 30 07:11 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Np. If you get a chance to critique one of my reviews that'd be cool, no pressure though. I wanna improve and whatnot
    July 30 06:59 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah man, lemme know what you think. I feel like a bum spamming that album everywhere but w/e, I stand behind it.
    July 30 06:45 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I reviewed it so my opinion is on that... basically lo-fi folk pop, but it's so much more..
    July 30 06:37 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey I think you'd like Bellows - Blue Breath, so... yeah, get on it
    July 30 06:33 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I have a love/hate relationship with the song "Luca" by Brand New.
    July 30 06:05 PM
  • Judio! Never mind my last shoutbox message. I'll email you my blurb once I get the chance :)
    July 30 03:47 PM
  • Judio! Hey man, I posted this in the Writers For Jane Doe thread a little while ago but is the classic album spotlight still happening? I've had my blurb finished for a while now, do you still want me to send it to you? If not that's cool, just wanted to be in the loop.
    July 28 04:19 AM
  • Feather I'm fairly certain you have introduced me to Brand New (long ago), Tigers on Trains, The Republic of Wolves and now Astronauts. Go find me more.
    July 24 03:57 PM
  • Metalstyles The specialty I chose (Estonian and Finno-Ugric languages and culture) wasn't for me though, I eventually decided, so I handed in my resignation at the start of the year. I'm working at Estonia's last record store since then, quietly thinking how and in which direction to move one.
    July 24 01:50 PM
  • Metalstyles Yeah I've been practicing (not honing lol) this scraping thing for about half a year now. I haven't been living at home for the last two years basically, but when I was in uni my parents helped me cope, since I wasn't too keen on both studying and working at the same time. I know that however hard you try, studying will always suffer in that scenario.
    July 24 01:48 PM
  • klap i don't mind it. i liked it better than observator. my favorite recent album by them is in and out of control, mostly bc that one's so '60s power-poppy. you'd probs enjoy that one the most. lust lust lust is very fuzzy/noisy haha
    July 24 01:39 PM
  • Metalstyles Haha, well it ain't too pretty for me either. While I work at a place I totally love, the pay in Estonia is so bad (we have the worst salary vs. prices ratio in the whole of Europe as far as I know). I basically live from payday to payday and while that means I have very succesfully managed to move out from my parents' home and start my own life, you can forget about big travel plans and nice shiny things (or just things in general hahaha).
    July 24 01:06 PM
  • klap check out lust lust lust
    July 24 11:22 AM
  • Metalstyles That is quite an alternative choice on your part if I may say so. What led you to that spot?
    July 24 08:39 AM
  • Metalstyles So, being a teacher equals crazy life? Do elaborate, because I've also been thinking about teaching (I'm relatively decent at this whole English thing, which could land me a spot at my old high school in the future should I choose to pursue that idea). Also, congrats on the upcoming marriage. I think I already forwarded my well-wishes when you posted the list about your engagement, but hey, Estonians have the saying "double isn't trouble/double doesn't hurt" haha.
    July 24 05:42 AM
  • klap you listen to the raveonettes?
    July 24 01:03 AM
  • Tyrael 0% succes rate here but confessing my love for a girl has cost me more friendships than I can count
    July 23 05:08 PM
  • Frippertronics yo http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=972683
    July 23 04:38 PM
  • Mongi123 Amen to that bro haha
    July 23 04:15 PM
  • Tyrael I've ruined every 'friendship' I ever had
    July 23 04:01 PM
  • Tyrael Might as well say 'you suck' lol
    July 23 04:00 PM
  • Tyrael That's like the worst thing to say ugh
    July 23 04:00 PM
  • Tyrael You are breaking my heart in a way that no woman ever could
    July 23 03:56 PM
  • Tyrael How is your negative review for the new Opeth coming along? ;]
    July 23 03:50 PM
  • Metalstyles I've been well I'd say. Moved in with two of my best friends about a month ago, am working rather successfully as a record store guy, and am slowly but surely pulling myself out of an identity crisis. Onwards and upwards. How about you?
    July 23 02:31 PM
  • Mongi123 Damn man you have some new 5s! Glad to see you love White Pony so much.
    July 23 10:49 AM
  • Metalstyles Hey man, I gave that Bleachers album a shot because you endorsed it so much and it's definitely not bad, I just feel I'd enjoy something like that a whole lot more in a live setting. I've been branching out a lot this last year, so I decided what the hell, why not spin some indie pop!
    July 23 04:30 AM
  • ferociouslettuce whose alt is this again? =P i'll give ya a hint -- my twitter is ferlettuce
    July 22 09:27 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Whole album jams, but if I really have to pick....... Jesus, Millstone, You Won't Know, Sowing Season, and Limousine.
    July 22 07:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges So, I finally jammed The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me the other day........
    July 22 05:07 PM
  • ferociouslettuce hi steve - how's teachin the kids in philly workin out these days?
    July 21 09:53 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah I just figured out how to do that, been trying to start getting into the Community section. It's like a whole other side to sputnik, next time I write a new review I'll post right away
    July 21 09:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Thanks, that was another reason I asked to be featured. I wanted more people to know about them, but yeah I understand it's a few months old. I didn't even know about Thantifaxath until another user told me about them a few weeks back, glad to hear you're enjoying it.
    July 21 09:34 PM
  • thelastsignal Thanks, man. Also good catch on the 'certainly' issue, will fix right now. I appreciate you looking through the review, I figured it would be good to reach out to someone that seemed nice as well as accessible. You obviously know what it takes. :) thanks again!
    July 18 08:18 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. Makes sense. I haven't seen Willie around the site too much lately. Seem like a cool dude, though.
    July 18 10:46 AM
  • thelastsignal Thanks, Sowing. I appreciate you taking the time to do that. I'm shooting for six reviews this month (four so far), which is me trying to up my consistency here. I look forward to any criticism on reviews once you have some time to check my stuff. Thanks again!
    July 18 08:49 AM
  • Rowan5215 That's good to know I'll listen sometime soon
    July 18 06:57 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I see you checked out some King Crimson recently. Good stuff.
    July 17 04:15 PM
  • thelastsignal Hey man, wanted to see if I could get some feedback on my writing/general approach to the site. I'm interested in becoming a contributor (applied back in January), and I just want to make sure that I am going down the correct road for that to happen. I love your reviews, and definitely respect your presence on the site, so if you have time it would definitely be appreciated.
    July 17 01:33 PM
  • Rowan5215 Yeah like I said, probably my second favourite after Cities. There are so many brilliant melodies, like the choruses of Destroyer, Birds of Prey, Hearing Voices, and its packed with emotion and I don't really mind that its not as instrumentally expressive as their other albums. It really inspired me to listen to the rest of their discog outside of Cities, though I still haven't heard Vital
    July 17 03:52 AM
  • tiesthatbind Likewise man, I still have fond memories of the threads we used to chat in, like that one Taylor Swift review where we all changed into our Office avatars. I can't believe I'm coming up on 5 years now since I joined...
    July 16 10:01 PM
  • tiesthatbind To answer your question, I've been doing very well. The last couple of years I've finally been dealing with the anxiety that I've had for a lot of my life, and right now I'm in a much better place than I was for the longest time. I've also kinda lost that drive to explore new music all the time that I used to have when I was more active here. That among other reasons (immaturity, trolling, etc) are why I haven't been on here regularly in quite a while.
    July 16 06:24 PM
  • Green Baron Did you ever finish that Nothing More album?
    July 16 05:10 PM
  • Futures Sweet! Give it a try it's criminally overlooked. I wrote a lame review for it if you want to read it haha
    July 16 04:46 PM
  • Futures Oh haha you dig those albums at all?
    July 16 04:37 PM
  • Mongi123 Haha, just seems like a goodbye track to me. LOVE the chorus.
    July 16 04:23 PM
  • Mongi123 Yea and another favorite of mine is definitely harbinger. Such a fitting ending track.
    July 16 04:19 PM
  • Mongi123 Dude I just can't stop listening to atonement, it's stunning
    July 16 04:16 PM
  • Green Baron I'm just joking around man, don't take things too seriously lol it's cool, I got a new #100 idea anyway so it won't be Lowborn
    July 16 11:48 AM
  • Tyrael Teehee :D
    July 16 09:34 AM
  • Tyrael Oh yeah I think you should check out the new wolves in the throne room, I dunno if you're into ambient but it's probably one of the most grandiose albums I've ever heard
    July 16 08:35 AM
  • fromtheinside u rule :D. if not for only understanding
    July 16 08:04 AM
  • Futures dude just found out you have futures 5d lol. awesome. but you don't have clarity or static prevails rated??? that's a crime man.
    July 16 04:52 AM
  • Jacquibim I planned to do a bit of mix of old and new, at least for a little while. It's not that I'm not interested in other genres, I'm not too sure of my ability to describe and analyse them at the moment. I reviewed Autechre's LP5 and people seemed to like it, I've just gotta get into the habit of covering some wider ground.
    July 16 01:00 AM
  • Jacquibim I thought so, I was just asking because reviewing one thing all the time and having all my reviews read the same tends to sap my motivation. Only problem is, my knowledge of anything that isn't metal is pretty damn elementary (reviewing rock wouldn't be an issue but unfortunately it just doesn't interest me). Would it be a good idea to try and cover some older albums that don't have reviews so I can get the hang of it?
    July 16 12:48 AM
  • Jacquibim ye man, i'm wondering, if I was to apply for staff at any point in the future, would it help my chances branch out into other genres (eg, not metal)?
    July 16 12:40 AM
  • Arcade did you ever receive my JD blurb?
    July 15 10:47 AM
  • Tyrael You know I feed off of other people's happiness ;]
    July 14 06:55 PM
  • Tyrael Awesome, it warms my heart to see you guys are in such a good place right now
    July 14 06:02 PM
  • Tyrael Damn, are you getting extra training for that? Seems pretty damn difficult to me... By the way, weren't you and the missus getting married soon? How's that going? :]
    July 14 05:09 PM
  • Tyrael Hell? How so?
    July 14 05:06 PM
  • Tyrael Damn it cut off my message: I said I just came back from the hospital (appendicitis) so I'm not that great atm :/, you?
    July 14 05:01 PM
  • Tyrael The hospital ;]
    July 14 05:00 PM
  • Mongi123 Tbh I have to listen to it a lot more but I can't wait to. What a pleasant surprise to have this as their final swan song right? Very nostalgic band too.
    July 11 05:45 PM
  • Mongi123 Awesome man I'm liking it a lot. I like some of the ambient stuff they put into the background and how they really use electronics so well. Kind of exactly how I feel about Crosses haha
    July 11 05:41 PM
  • Mongi123 Likewise pal love your stuff! So, what you think of it. Very engaging electronic rock for me. Armageddon rules.
    July 11 05:34 PM
  • Mongi123 So I saw you're gonna cover Lowborn soon? Awesome dude, I'm prob gonna do that too after I get back from vacation next saturday.
    July 11 05:30 PM
  • osmark86 thank you! yeah, I reckon that's a good idea. I was thinking about doing it while we're on vacation somewhere in the southern vicinities of Europe too. so a sunset at a beach wouldn't be too bad ^^.
    July 11 03:39 AM
  • Feather I just added you on last.fm and you and I alegedly have High musical compatibility ;) Every other sputnik user I have added has said low or very low.
    July 10 10:50 AM
  • Feather This is definitely my best profile. The worst thing is I have about 10 scattered reviews on other accounts. Oh well though.
    July 10 10:36 AM
  • Feather hmmm, I just went back and checked my first account. It looks like I officially joined the site in 2010, I must have been a lurker for longer than I thought. I think I made my first account when I decided to write a review. My first acct was IllPromiseYouThat. I bounced around on acounts a lot because I would get really into the site and then back off and want to start new once I finally got back into it. I really wish I had just stuck to the same account. These last few months is the most
    July 10 10:27 AM
  • witchxrapist Well the majority of stuff going on in the area is real underground hardcore stuff and noise, and the metalcore scenes making a comeback, you should hit me up on facebook (Matthew Turok).
    July 4 02:40 PM
  • Judio! Ok thanks, I should totally be finished by them.
    July 3 10:13 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges No problem, mate. I'm glad you let me participate in the playlist.
    July 3 07:08 PM
  • Judio! Hey man, is the deadline for the JD blurbs close? I started writing mine but I totally forgot to finish, if you want it soon though I can finish it within the next day or so.
    July 3 05:26 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Sorry to be a bother, but I was just wondering if you managed to get my email submission for the Classic Album Spotlight.
    July 3 04:36 PM
  • witchxrapist what-what-what?! do you go to any local muzak things ever?
    July 2 03:55 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks for being reasonable and understanding, man.
    June 29 08:21 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Sounds good. I've been kinda busy over the past few days, but hopefully I'll be able to get my piece in by Tuesday.
    June 29 07:57 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hey dude, about when do you think the deadline for the Jane Doe submissions will be?
    June 29 05:40 PM
  • PitchforkArms sweet! get back to me when you do i'd like to hear your thoughts on it
    June 29 05:14 PM
  • PitchforkArms http://bloodandink.bandcamp.com/album/safekeeperhey man, i really think you'll enjoy this
    June 29 04:02 PM
  • Brostep it's fine, I should really publish by Monday so I'll be doing that. gotta contribute to the staff playlist as well so that'll take up the day I think
    June 29 10:49 AM
  • Brostep hey man just FYI I'm looking to have the Infinite Playlist all set to go by Sunday night so I can publish it Monday morning. if you have time/material to contribute that'd be super but if not I totally understand, let me know sooner rather than later!
    June 28 05:53 PM
  • Mongi123 Haha I'm one of those 4.5s xD I will admit that the thing that keeps me from 5ing is how it does in fact blend together after a while and the drumming never really changes that much but it's just soooo well done imo
    June 27 11:01 AM
  • Mongi123 Aww dude didn't quite care for Lost in the Dream? Potential AOTY for me.
    June 27 10:55 AM
  • Frippertronics hey, when is the deadline for the infinite playlist thing again?
    June 27 07:07 AM
  • fromtheinside ughhh soooooowwwingggg i replied back aaaaaaages ago. haha i kid it's no biggie
    June 25 03:22 AM
  • fromtheinside so by when?????
    June 24 03:38 AM
  • SgtPepper welcome back, man! I loved your Antlers review. I totally agree with your views on the album, especially your comment where you called it "gorgeous, soft indie rock" even if it isn't as intriguing/exciting as past efforts. i really enjoyed the album myself, but I cant resist 'mellow-and-hazy' rock songs. especially of The Antlers variety.
    June 24 01:27 AM
  • BMDrummer Okay, I sent you it already though, so let me know how it is when you get to it. Plus, after listening to it again, I've decided to 5 it.
    June 23 12:02 AM
  • BMDrummer When should the Jane Doe writings be done? I can finish mine by tomorrow probably
    June 22 11:18 PM
  • Muisc4Life26 You're welcome bro, it might take me a long time but i'm pretty sure i can get it done by sometime this upcoming week.
    June 22 09:50 AM
  • Muisc4Life26 sweet thanks man
    June 22 09:04 AM
  • fromtheinside oh! and by when?
    June 22 04:22 AM
  • fromtheinside THAW!!! sweeeeeeeeet. my favorite song this is great.
    June 22 03:57 AM
  • Gwynsalt lol wtf, sputnikd half my comment. well what came after is: gwynsalt = gwyn's alt, and thanks for adding me, is there any deadline i have to meet for giving out the blurb?
    June 21 07:56 PM
  • Gwynsalt If you're going to save my name up in some other list around your computer just put "Gwyn." that's my main account this is just an alt I made while waiting for it to be unbanned (gwynsalt -
    June 21 07:50 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Alright, sweet. Just lemme know if there's any specific deadline you want for me to submit it at, because I wanna try to take my time to analyze the track entirely. Thanks!
    June 21 06:38 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I think I'll go with Homewrecker.
    June 21 05:23 PM
  • Judio! Sounds goo, thank you for the opportunity!
    June 21 04:12 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hey dude, I'm interested in contributing to the classic album spotlight, if that's okay with you.
    June 21 03:04 PM
  • Judio! Absolutely, I love that album! If we're calling dibs on songs, I'd like Phoenix In Flight, but since Phoenix In Flames is so short and is like part 2 of the song, I'd be down for covering both.
    June 21 01:47 PM
  • Futures Don't worry I will take my time to perfect this.
    June 21 12:53 PM
  • Futures Thanks man! What would be the estimated time that you would want this by?
    June 21 12:50 PM
  • Futures Sounds good! I would like to take Concubine.
    June 21 12:44 PM
  • Futures That would be awesome if you would want me on board!
    June 21 12:11 PM
  • Arcade thanks for the honors of first dibs! I'm gonna go with the t/t then :)
    June 21 09:32 AM
  • Arcade certainly! just give me some guidelines and directions and i'd be happy to write up something
    June 21 09:11 AM
  • Futures i would love to help out with the classic album spotlight!
    June 21 02:25 AM
  • fromtheinside hmmmmm i haven't listened to tdag in a couple years and the idea sounds great would love to help also JD. also Welcome Back dude. site feels fuller again. :)
    June 21 02:12 AM
  • Judio! That was probably bound to happen to be honest. In any event I'm looking forward to this for sure.
    June 20 11:37 PM
  • Arcade the idea sounds awesome man, if you do anything for arcade fire, neutral milk hotel or converge i'd love to contribute!
    June 20 10:21 PM
  • mryrtmrnfoxxxy i think it's a cool idea don't get discouraged qt
    June 20 10:14 PM
  • Judio! Hey man, I'm definitely interested in contributing to the class album spotlight,
    June 20 09:51 PM
  • Mythodea Exactly what I was thinking. But it must be done slowly and subtly, otherwise - as it seems - users will dislike it as cheesy, bad etc.
    June 20 03:24 PM
  • Mythodea I am really thankful for your good words. I hoped more people would like it but as it seems they found it ''meh...''.
    June 20 02:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I think Shadows retired from the review site around 2009, which means that he's been inactive for 5 or so years. I heard that he got his Emeritus title stripped due to inactivity. Not sure if that's true, though.
    June 20 11:16 AM
  • Mongi123 Yea that's rough man, Hear You Me definitely has a certain powerful aura, whether or not you've experienced loss or not. JEW definitely brings lots of feels agreed. Especially on songs like 23, Drugs or Me and Just Watch the Fireworks.
    June 20 10:23 AM
  • Mongi123 Thank you man! I'm always on and off between futures or clarity being my favorite. I think we can both agree that 23 is definitely one of if not their best songs hands down right?
    June 20 10:04 AM
  • henryChinaski I will, thanks! Just found it on Spotify. Mainstream's fine with me. They remind me of Of Monsters
    June 20 04:02 AM
  • fallenbird :D That's awesome man! Can't wait to read it. Also can't wait to hear Lowborn either. Have you heard the 3 tracks yet?
    June 20 12:14 AM
  • Deviant. You'll need to talk to Trey dude, he runs it
    June 19 11:46 PM
  • Brostep I still have like 8 to review haha so by all means go right ahead. If you want (since you're back now) you can publish it for continuity's sake.
    June 19 10:21 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. That makes sense. You're definitely a top-notch writer, and if anything, I'm glad you're back. Wasn't Shadows emeritus, though? What happened there, if you don't mind me asking?
    June 19 09:56 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Not to be rude, but you went from staff....... to emeritus........ back to staff? How?
    June 19 09:36 PM

    June 19 05:32 PM
  • BMDrummer Yay you're back!
    June 19 05:03 PM
  • silentstar one of my favourite staff -
    June 19 04:33 PM
  • Mongi123 Haha cool man, and nonetheless it's still an awesome review. The summary kinda makes you think a little bit. It's a good observation about music in general imo
    June 19 03:53 PM
  • Mongi123 Hey bro just wanted to say welcome back! I look up to your writing a lot, despite that 2.5 for ( ), tsk tsk. Anyway, since you love JEW, give my Clarity review a read when you can. I'm really proud of it, hope you like it.

    June 19 11:09 AM
  • NocteDominum Awesome, it wouldn't hurt to have one of my fave writers throwing some name drops around next promotion cycle ; ] How's life off the net?
    June 19 07:47 AM
  • NocteDominum If a lowly little vine like me is thinking it.... any ways it will be good to see you bringing back some insightful opinions.

    June 15 12:27 AM
  • BMDrummer Ok cool
    May 24 02:22 PM
  • BMDrummer That kinda sucks, I really like your reviews
    May 24 12:48 PM
  • BMDrummer Why did you become an emeritus if you still review occasionally? Don't mean to be nosy or anything, but it's kind of different.
    May 21 09:56 PM
  • fallenbird Yeah, the reissue also has Life In Color so it's even that much better.
    April 14 03:52 PM
  • fallenbird Hey Sowing, I know you like Onerepublic's new album so I thought you should know (if you already didn't) that a reissue has been released with a new song called "Love Runs Out" and the song I utterly fantastic. You definitely should listen to it!
    April 14 01:00 AM
  • thepaintedalice Tyvm! It is much appreciated! :)
