  • Jacquibim yeah it's sweet but a little hard to differentiate from their debut, not that that's a bad thing
    April 11 09:31 PM
  • plane It was the perfect description and worked both ways. Had to.
    April 6 06:16 PM
  • Atari Glad I'm not the only one that sees the resemblance haha. Such an addicting game
    April 5 10:45 PM
  • talktothehead Oh I agree. Warriors looks awesome. I've never played a warriors game but I almost bought Hyrule Warriors. Eh I haven't played any JRPGS so I'm not that excited for Octopath. I plan to get Bravely Default, then we'll see if I like the dev team. 2018 is awesome. I REALLY hope a Metroid comes out. Please god Metroid. Prime 4 would be awesome.
    January 21 10:09 PM
  • talktothehead oh thats true. regardless i have to finish my first fire emblem, awakening. i hope the console game for switch is good(not warriors the 2018 one)
    January 21 02:56 PM
  • talktothehead Ya that's true but I still need to install an SD Card. If you want 2/3 campaigns physical you have to pay 80$ I believe(but they might have a bundle?). Lol. I heard Conquest was by far the best, and that Revelations was much better than Birthright.
    January 21 01:43 PM
  • talktothehead ya. I have to get to Awakening. Only played a bit of it. Fates looks so expensive though, it's like 2 40$ games and then 1 20$ campaign??? Lol. But I need to get into fire Emblem. too many games to play on 3ds. the exact opposite of wii u lol. HOpe you got good money on your Wii U. Will probably get a switch in april or when splatoon 2 comes out.
    January 21 12:44 AM
  • talktothehead Well I've only played most of Wind Waker and all of Link Between Worlds. I want to get into the series more but Wind Waker's triforce quest stopped me from finishing, and I haven't gotten to Majora's Mask or Ocirina of time yet. Twilight Princess i don't even have. I should get to them sometime. Ya Mario looks like the real deal.
    January 21 12:05 AM
  • Xenophanes Street Fighter 2 will be a month or so out I believe. Hoping it's a $30 or so eShop download rather than a full priced retail title.And I am beyond stoked for Zelda. I mean, I am a raving mad fan. Even though the launch line up is bunk, the 2017 schedule looks good. Mario, Zelda, and Xenoblade make for a real good year. Playing an HD open world JRPG on the go sounds amazing.
    January 20 11:28 PM
  • talktothehead Street Fighter 2 isn't coming at launch? Weird. I am probably going to pick up Fast Racing Neo RMX as I'm too young to have played F-zero. Binding of Isaac and Super Bomberman R look pretty cool too. Ya, Splatoon 2 is super hype. Same with Zelda though i'm not a fan of the series.
    January 20 10:02 PM
  • talktothehead Wow...you're a staff? And ya I'm pretty excited about the Switch. can't wait for the exclusives.
    January 20 09:49 PM
  • voltairesangryglove possibly because it says "staff" on yr profile. but if you are emeritus, thank ****. bye.
    January 14 04:16 PM
  • voltairesangryglove of course it has no bearing on everyday life lol. but there are probably dozens of people on this site who would love a staff position and who would actually be willing to apply a modicum of effort in their writing. i'm far from the only person to think your reviews are lazy and bad. also i'm not "accosting you," just wondering why you can't be bothered to make an effort.
    January 14 11:28 AM
  • voltairesangryglove even your rebuttals are lazy. why are you even here?
    January 14 11:19 AM
  • voltairesangryglove that's obvious. you should step down from your staff position if that's the case.
    January 13 11:14 PM
  • pizzamachine Hey, what's up bruh?
    January 10 04:08 PM
  • ShadowRemains there's not enough bands that incorporate melody like that these days
    December 22 04:00 PM
  • RadicalEd Just re-read your Ulver review for my End of the year list and just wanted to let you know that it's amazing ;)
    December 19 08:03 AM
  • Jacquibim Will prob check it out, didn't particularly care for their debut but you never know

  • Nocturtle ur soundoff for meshuggahs new album is pathetic
    October 7 03:56 AM
  • Jacquibim Predictably I'm loving it, stronger than Vermis IMO but idk if it's as good as TDoA or EIF yet
    September 30 11:15 PM
  • KevinKC I've just read your review on Deftones Gore and it made me happy. And it's well written.
    September 21 04:37 AM
  • Ignimbrite Heyo, nm dude, just passing time until the semester starts and I have to start actually doing things. How's life going for yourself? I feel like I haven't seen you around here much lately, although that might also be because I've gotten a lot less involved here myself over the past couple years.
    August 24 12:21 AM
  • Jacquibim Had a feeling it was over the Mare Cognitum dib. I got the same promo you did so there's no need to worry.
    August 19 09:50 AM
  • zaruyache Marsh Dweller! And from my bandcamp bm list, maybe check: 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 15, 21, 25, 27, 49.
    August 16 10:59 PM
  • zaruyache *snort* ahahaha. I think it's one of my fav soundoffs. Album pwns, too.
    August 15 09:26 PM
  • Sniff Stay gold bro
    July 29 01:36 AM
  • Trebor. Get on Teenage Haze by Departures if you haven't heard it
    July 9 03:16 PM
  • Gyromania haha good man! that feeling of accomplishment is awesome, isn't it? did you get the dlc for it too? it's even better than the core game. also get dark souls 2 - avoid those whiny elitist bitches who incessantly moan about it not being as good as dark souls 1
    June 7 09:22 PM
  • LordePots haha likewise man. was silly. we bro'd hard in the sputnik glory days.
    May 18 07:27 PM
  • Toondude10 Emeritus...? Wait, what?
    May 9 02:19 PM
  • Gyromania yeah you're definitely ready for that. the area is hard and you will probably die quite a few times to a couple pesky hunters, but it's mostly manageable. a lot of people cite the boss of that area as one of the hardest in the game. i personally think they're crazy. don't be afraid to get in close while fighting it. it's when you panic and move away from it that it'll punish you.

  • AsleepInTheBack Seconding what Oceandrowned said, great review
    May 7 11:39 AM
  • Oceandrowned Perfect job at deftones review, this site really needed it. Too much fanboyism around here these days.
    May 7 07:54 AM
  • Artuma best staff :]
    May 7 03:04 AM
  • Jacquibim Man, Iove your HoB review. Glad there's another staffer who enjoys the band as much as me.
    March 5 08:46 PM
  • Jacquibim Yeah man the drums absolutely pummel you, like you can feel the force behind pretty much every bass kick. It was really refreshing to hear that kind of production from Relapse, as well.
    February 17 12:47 AM
  • Jacquibim Probably tied with the new Chthe'ilist for the best metal album of the year so far. The production is particularly amazing.

  • hogan900 Thanks for the insight man, can't wait to hear it for myself.
    February 4 06:30 AM
  • hogan900 Not to bother you or anything, but can you give me any basic thoughts on the new Yndi Halda? Is it like Enjoy Eternal Bliss? Or a completely different style? Sorry just curious because I really dig Eternal Bliss, one of my all time favs.
    February 3 01:03 PM
  • minty901 You the first person in the world to hear the new Yndi Halda? Hook a brother up? ;) Any news on when it might stream?
    February 1 02:16 AM

  • JWT155 Hey man, I've always admired your reviews and opinions, I've been here for 6 years and finally found the courage to post my first review in a long time, I'd appreciate it if you took a quick glance and any thoughts or advice you would have on it. Cheers.
    December 3 01:46 AM
  • MoosechriS hey dude, just incase your still after the new black cilice lp. Iron bonehead have released a second press of the lp this evening, i'd get on that s*** it your still after one before they go. Also repressed the debut, which i snagged myself as i only had it on cd.

    April 21 07:49 PM
  • MoosechriS hey dude, just a quick shout to say the guy from black cilice has finally put the digital version of the new lp up on his blog if you still want to check it out. http://blackcilice.blogspot.co.uk/
    April 6 04:37 PM
  • MoosechriS Hey dude, i bought it from the ironbonehead label who released it. Just checked their site and it seems to he sold out. You may want to try altare productions site too as they may have recieved some copies. Sorry i cant be any more help dude, only other suggestion would be trying discogs. Although im sure the album will get a cd release at some point as the two previous albums did

  • Homogenic I need help with my graduation work about "actuality of modern pop culture". I must use "subjective and independent opinion about records". This source is polyhedral for my thesis. Now I talk about "best-selling pop acts of this decade and theirs influence on general public and critics" Can you write review about any Katy Perry's record? For example, "Teenage Dream" or "Prism"? If you can help me, please, answer and I will talk with you personally. Thank you!

    December 31 01:13 AM
  • IslamicPenguins That just came on shuffle and it blew my mind, very few things i've heard have been able to captivate me like that. I've been a fan of Mono for at least 5 years and slept on this until sometime earlier this year. This and Agaetis Brygun are my discoveries of the year
    December 19 09:36 PM
  • SowingSeason I've been alright man...new job that I was bragging about only a few months ago is ridiculously stressful...I barely have time to eat and sleep. So I'm hoping things turn around quickly. How about you?

  • JamesDay Why did my review for apex of apathy getd? I also put up albums for the band, I'd like them back up now.
    November 9 09:18 PM
  • Jade Thanks a ton, bud. It really is a great record- cohesive, catchy but dense at the same time, and thematically ambitious. I wouldn't have expected you to enjoy it to be honest, but I'm glad to hear that isn't the case. Any songs in particular you're enjoying the most? Seeing them live made the album even better for me

    April 10 01:09 PM
  • ILJ damn kvelertak and torche? are they on the same tour? i'd like to catch that show. you missed out last night though, they played more from Act II than they did anything else. they opened with the first 5ish songs from it. they didn't sound particularly great though, and they had some technical issues. casey's amp went out early on and they had to improvise a few songs. not bad though. the opener was great too.
    April 6 02:12 PM

    April 4 09:48 PM
  • balcaen Have you heard the new Akron/Family? It's weird that a band whose 5th album was by far their best continues to be pretty boring...
    April 4 09:48 PM
  • ILJ No! I just found out they were playing yesterday and I've already made plans. Really wanted to catch them too. After tomorrow I'm clear until TDEP is here.

    March 19 02:00 PM
  • kingsoby1 yes definitely liking it. still not sure where it fits in relation to s/t. love how they're using a lot more major key sounds mixed with BM - no one really does that
    March 19 12:58 PM
  • TheSpirit hey eli, how are you doing man? the reason i'm not that much anymore is because my laptop is broken and i don't have a phone at the moment. i'm still getting on when i can though and i have a bunch of reviews stocked up for when i get my s*** together. would it be cool if when i get the chance i send one to you on fb for a glance over? it would be much appreciated. hope your doing well man
    March 19 10:11 AM
  • Aids super surprising but appreciated for sure. thanks to you and sobhi (I guess?) for pushing it through. I'm definitely looking to start reviewing lots of current releases so I'm sure the promotion will be put to good use.
    March 18 07:55 PM
  • ILJ Yeah they're at the Newport next Wednesday. They open for For Today (bleck) As I Lay Dying (they're apparently playing a lot of older stuff so that might be cool) and Prada. I really only care about The Chariot.
    March 18 03:08 PM
  • ILJ I wish I were, but my girlfriend is flying to Spain and I'm going to the airport with her, and my Physics lab interferes with the show too. I'd skip but I'm saving my one miss day for next week to see The Chariot.
    March 18 02:56 PM
  • Metalstyles Thanks man, and thank you guys for the promotion!
    March 18 05:21 AM
  • toxin. in that case, make sure you adopt a boy! ; )
    March 17 11:54 PM
  • ILJ Thanks man, I appreciate it. I'm going to try to review more new stuff, I just hate reviewing things that others have already reviewed, especially staff and contributors. But I'll have to suck it up and do it anyway I guess, at least on occasion.
    March 15 03:47 PM

  • TenSecondsToThink Hey man, why don't you review the Saintseneca album? I know it already has a good review but they really deserve a lot more attention and a staff review means much more and of course it'd be shown on the front page.

  • ILJ I've never been there. It's strange, from what I saw there are two separate shows that night.
    December 18 10:00 PM
  • ILJ I'm gonna try to make it out but I'm moving in that day so I don't know how it'll work out yet. Do you know where to grab tickets or is this more of an "at the door" event?
    December 18 08:32 PM
  • ILJ Are you gonna catch empire! empire! when they play in Columbus on the 5th?
    December 16 10:11 PM
  • Ignimbrite Thank you so much for bringing Evening Hymns to my attention: this is one of the most beautiful albums I've heard all year.

  • Trebor. Dude I'm done with school at noon tomorrow and I'm gonna crank out 4 new release reviews and a very special review for my 50th oh boy. But yeah I heard some of the staff are getting a little disenfranchised about the site. You're the only one who reviews stuff I care about anyway RIP Redsky
    December 12 10:44 PM
  • Trebor. Staff hasn't been very active lately, you have two reviews in a row in the staff section lol

  • ihavehadaguystalkingmerecently I have no idea, but he's returned just to produce and lay vox on the new record and that's it. He's not the best vocalist ever and not super-unique or anything, but his vox will be a nice throwback, so it doesn't bother me that much. And yeah, I find it funny how he formed New Found Glory after Shai Hulud. It's not very fitting, especially when New Found Glory are pretty mediocre.
    December 11 11:41 PM
  • ihavehadaguystalkingmerecently Ahh, I see! Didn't know you were a vegetarian, will try to steer clear of topics regarding delicious red meat from now on. I hear he only came back to do vox for this record, then they're finding someone else to do vocals for the tour, so that kinda sucks, but I'm very much looking forward to what they've come up with on the new album though. The production sounds a bit iffy to me, but I don't think that will really affect the overall quality of the album.
    December 11 11:00 PM
  • ihavehadaguystalkingmerecently Even Australians who have lived here all their lives are grossed out by the idea of eating kangaroo, but it's honestly delicious and a wonderful alternative to beef (less fatty and has a far lesser impact on the planet). But yeah, the new Shai Hulud song ruled, but I don't think it's up to the calibre of anything on That Within Blood Ill-Tempered. Will probably be better than Misanthropy Pure, but I don't want to get my expectations too high.
    December 11 10:52 PM
  • xxm Well, At least we agree on something Eli. Now if you excuse i have to listen to volturi and cry myself to sleep. Because,you know i am quite the big baby.
    December 11 09:03 PM
  • GauravB82 I wouldn't 'tell' you how a record is good, ie. tell uou what to think. It'd be a different experience for each person. Even if i wanted to try, i wouldn't since you have a fixed opinion of them? Anyway, id hoped to 'call you out' for your bad attitude. That too is fixed.

  • klap one of my favorites this year. really tight playing and a concise record but still has all of their best traits and some great songwriting
    December 11 04:08 PM
  • ihavehadaguystalkingmerecently Jammin' some Shai Hulud and thinking of cooking a roast kangaroo for dinner. Yourself?
    December 11 12:36 AM
  • xxm i love you man but i hate you for the same undisclosed reasons and don't bother responding to me as i have no substance
    December 9 06:06 PM
  • GauravB82 "There needs to be a nice balance between personal opinion and objectivity because without it every review would be the same" ... that's where I disagree with you. Personal opinion is secondary to objectivity in a review. You've still much to learn, perhaps you can consider what's being said instead of replying with abuse.
    December 8 09:34 PM
  • ThunderNeutral21 ah. well in any case, the 10 minute song is one of his best. im really happy he went back to the electronic/glitchy classical type deal and didnt **** up like he did with 5 dec. he did a great job with the style of the record
    November 28 11:26 PM
  • ThunderNeutral21 yeah so its really ****ing good. review it nao
    November 28 11:17 PM
  • Aids "No one say it because we all know." im guessing youre thinking of either sea or dev. i disagree in both cases, but yeah, lol
    November 28 10:24 PM
  • BaselineOOO Why the hell would I rate an album I haven't heard? sometimes you're not making any sense.
    November 28 04:21 PM
  • BaselineOOO http://depositfiles.com/files/ezyskaaat
    November 28 04:20 PM
  • ThunderNeutral21 its basically a remix album where the remixes really **** around with the songs, there's some entirely new stuff I'm pretty sure also. That song is really sweet yeah, the dynamics are nuts. Whenever it shifts from a beautiful string section to the colder, electronic sections it's done in the blink of an eye. that song is incredibly engaging and easily one of the 5 best songs hes ever done imo
    November 27 04:21 PM
  • ThunderNeutral21 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iji3l42C7PY
    November 27 01:56 PM
  • ThunderNeutral21 its remixes of old stuff with new material thrown in, and its a lot like program
    November 27 01:53 PM
  • ThunderNeutral21 so whether or not your my biggest fan, I feel like we have to unite on this. Daisuke's new album sounds a bit like a throwback to Program Music
    November 27 01:49 PM
  • GauravB82 Part of writing a review for the public, which will number in the millions, is writing something that is objective. You might like to switch on the option that lets people rate your review, so you can get a sense of the feedback. It's one thing to be 'anti-is-trendy'
    November 26 06:28 PM
  • Maniac! Haha. Neat.
    November 21 01:36 PM
  • Atari what about it did you think was flawed? and yeah i put it even higher on the list than i planned just because it's so underrated and deserves more attention IMO
    November 13 07:22 PM
  • Atari So what are your favorite mario games since you didn't like my list? :P
    November 13 06:10 PM
  • xxm P.S have a lovely night eli, and have a great path in you're staff career even if i continue to disagree on certain issues and music with you. well i won't be on this site much longer because of the whining and the trolling, But you and several others revealed to me such great music and for that i will forever thank you. thank you for killing my love for junk corprate "music" thank you too much.
    November 8 05:34 PM
  • xxm i disagree with you're soundoff on Koi No Yokan but not because i'm a mudsucking fanboy but because i love the two songs i've heard off of it and i know that's nowhere near the whole album it stills gives me room to somewhat disagree with you but then again it you're honest opinion and you don't seem the kind of critic that likes most modern rock music and to be fair i hate 97% of it nowadays as well and you definitely have you're good reasons but i just disagree here even if you are right.
    November 8 05:13 PM
  • bakkermaarten007 Finally an active staff member. Could you take a look at the shouts I left for Willie?http://www.sputnikmusic.com/profile.php?memberid=252470
    November 8 04:12 PM
  • greg84 Thanks man. I also enjoy reading your reviews. Over 160 revs is an impressive number. Keep up the good work and review more stoner rock. Haha.

  • balcaen your avatar makes me cry
    November 5 12:33 PM
  • Trebor. My cynicism was running rather low today because I got a new kitten, but yeah you rule dude m/
    October 28 11:18 PM
  • SowingSeason Glad you like them, they rule. I didn't find out about them until this year.
    October 28 09:49 PM
  • SowingSeason Yeah it's definitely worth it. It's so much fun and I never take it for granted.
    October 24 05:14 PM
  • SowingSeason Haha yeah that's pretty much it. I was essentially the people's champ as a user, not to sound conceited but people praised everything I did. contributor was slightly lesser but still good, but once you're staff you pretty much can't win unless you exclusively review metal. I get along with the userbase better now, though. After a year I think the novelty of heckling my new staff position wore off. To be honest it all comes and goes, I have no complaints right now.
    October 24 03:01 PM
  • SowingSeason Thanks for your kind words about my review. Once you've been staff for a while people kind of stop giving you feedback, so good or bad I appreciate it either way.
