  • PurpleBottle left the fb realm icic . big ups on 2, 3, 5, 8 (most listened to bands). reminds me of high school
    April 19 09:46 AM
  • Brostep forget how it goes tbh will listen again soon

  • Brostep infinite funk is good but I actually started dancing in my chair with Dynasty

  • WatchItExplode I do. It is certainly a step-up from the recent output. Still moments of tedium and 311-by-numbers tracks, but there seems to be some actual effort to shake things up a bit to surprise and engage the listener. Still, the best moments are like negatives or b-sides of their classic material. Not quite there, but close enough to remind us of where they've been.
    March 13 12:01 PM
  • WatchItExplode So you going to review Stereolithic Jacob? Or will you not lower yourself to that level as a staffer?
    March 12 06:18 PM
  • loveisamixtape soundcloud.com/fauxdeep is my project that i never showed you but still want to know what you think of. 6 song ep is currently being tracked ~

  • Insurrection ah ghost promotions.. i thought those were only a myth. lol honored to be part of the quasi-professional writing team.
    February 24 10:05 AM
  • Atari thanks for the support man
    February 19 01:31 PM
  • Deviant. Kruder and Dorfmeister, DJ Cam, Kid Loco, Daddy G, Four Tet, Kode9, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Scuba, Photek, Maya Jane Coles and John Talabot's are probably the best entries in the series but truthfully there really hasn't been a terrible entry in the catalogue
    February 18 01:55 AM
  • Ecnalzen Look at you and your musical networking. I am impressed. And a bit jealous.
    February 17 11:31 PM
  • Mongi123 Thanks man I appreciate it!
    February 17 05:01 PM
  • FiveLeavesLeft Gotcha bro, I apologize
    February 17 07:39 AM
  • GnarlyShillelagh thanks man, glad to be here. couldn't have done it without you, i heard you were a huge proponent of my promotion, but also just all the help and crits you've given me over the past year have been awesome
    February 17 04:52 AM
  • Hyperion1001 haha thanks dude. the opposition to adding me was probably deserved cause i was having trouble coming to terms with the fact that a lot of my old friends from here were gone and i was kind of "out of the loop" so to say, and i had a period where i reacted poorly to it. but ive found a really cool group of people here who are smart, love talking about music, and have opinions i respect so thats really changed my attitude lately, and i hope it shows up in what i can contribute from here on out.
    February 16 11:19 PM
  • Willie No trouble at all.
    February 13 09:08 AM

  • Atari Hey man i know you've helped me out before, but if you have time do you mind taking a peak at my latest review for agalloch? I'm just looking for ways to improve my writing and i've always appreciated your honest feedback. Feel free to either shoutbox me or comment on the review if you have time. Thanks man!
    February 11 03:20 PM
  • Brostep AAAAAAAAA YAY thanks
    February 11 02:32 PM

    February 11 01:15 PM
  • MO Yea man it's pretty underwhelming ugh. I still gotta give it a couple more listens. In all honesty I pretty much saw it coming.

  • fromtheinside i think... i think u might find something to enjoy from this - http://polygonsnc.bandcamp.com/album/rifts
    February 6 05:19 PM
  • Crysis All yours man, I reviewed their last one so if you want this one go ahead. Not sure if I'll even like it haha
    January 30 12:55 PM
  • Metalstyles Me too, because while I do appreciate constructive crit a lot, it's really humbling to have someone tear you a new one lol.
    January 29 01:19 PM
  • Metalstyles I still (generally, unless I'm reeeeeally excited about the album and can't hold back haha) don't post reviews right after I've finished writing them, because nine times out of ten I'll change something about them the day after, and nine times out of ten those changes are for the better. I have a review lying around right now, for example, that is basically in a finished state, but I'll still look over it tomorrow before posting.
    January 29 12:48 PM
  • Metalstyles That's a good point about counterintuitivity (not sure if that's a word but if not, coining the term now). It does seem to be that, while the ideas may be right and genuine as you write them down based on how you're feeling at a given moment, structurally you can only improve what you've written when coming back to it. At least, that's how it seems to me.
    January 29 12:46 PM
  • Metalstyles I typed here because I don't want to detract from whatever real album discussion may appear in that thread. Anyway, those are just my thoughts - you may act (or not act) on them as you wish.
    January 28 05:48 PM
  • Metalstyles Yeah, your opening sentences read much better now. Still, if I may, imo the last sentence of the first para doesn't really work because it sounds both too vague ("Really, this record is dripping in everything it incorporates" - as a reader who hasn't heard the album this tells me absolutely nothing and it sounds kinda pretentious) and is contradictory (I may be a bit pedantic here, but if something is "far removed", that means there is no trace of said phenomenon/thing).
    January 28 05:47 PM
  • Ecnalzen Niiiiice, boi. Way to get the hook up. So, do you actually know the band a little bit?
    January 28 12:45 PM
  • Monheim yr punch was insubstantial much like Parades' sound
    January 22 05:14 PM
  • Monheim omg fite me
    January 22 02:34 PM
  • silentstar I just saw on that one list that your favourite album is No More Stories - that's awesome! I found out about that album/band a couple of months ago and it has been constantly on replay. what are your three favourite songs off the album?
    January 15 08:17 PM
  • DaveyBoy Great to hear and good on the band for doing that. Im playing it by ear with reviewing for the foreseeable future. Got a couple in mind, but I really need more lead in time now than I did before.
    January 11 01:19 AM
  • DaveyBoy Ok, Im biting. Where did you get new Icarus from?

  • ShitsofRain Yeah, it's nothing special really. The whole thing is pretty much played out.
    January 2 01:33 PM
  • ShitsofRain It's great if not excellent. It's like Anthony Green would sing for Dance Gavin Dance.
    January 2 01:23 PM
  • clercqie Nope, I only criticise others. Way easier job. ;]
    December 29 06:04 AM
  • FearThyEvil9 I see, and I do want to start reviewing however, I fear my grammar is atrocious. I love talking about music and reaching out to other listeners with newer recommendations. I'm thinking of making a youtube reviewing channel. Similar to needledrop but without all the hipster. lol
    December 27 10:12 PM
  • silentstar haha, it would make a very nice name. but yeah, I love your lists/reviews/ratings man - always good to know that part of your taste is similar to mine (and to just about everyone apparently!)
    December 23 10:00 PM
  • FearThyEvil9 This might be a very stupid question and you can choose to answer or not. My friend asked me if I would ever try to become staff on sputnik. While I know that's extremely low it did come into my mind with this question. Do staff make profit or is it more just early releases for music?
    December 23 07:37 PM
  • osmark86 oh well, the album doesn't seem like a grower anyways so I guess it isn't worth investing more time if it didn't strike your fancies. see you dug Shad's latest though. that album was pretty damn solid. seeing as you liked it I think you'd dig yU - the EARN, give it a go mate. criminally underrated.
    December 20 07:34 AM
  • osmark86 dang, didn't like no poison no paradise more than that mate?
    December 19 03:50 AM
  • Azn. Dang, not even top 100? I'm thinking it fills a very specialized niche for post hardcore but not THAT specialized
    December 18 07:38 PM
  • Azn. hey omaha, how was the general staff reaction to A Lot Like Birds? Just curious; would you say it made the top 100?
    December 18 10:56 AM
  • TMobotron Hey could you check out my Logos - Cold Mission review if you get a chance? You always provide solid criticism and I felt a bit rusty with that one, it's been awhile since I've written. Keep in mind it's intentionally short and to the point. If you do, thanks! But if you don't get time that's fine too.
    December 17 01:56 AM
  • YakNips Hey man, I feel kind of dumb for asking this, but when can I apply to be a contributor? Idk I just felt like asking a nice staff member would be the easiest way to find out
    December 15 02:56 PM
  • Voivod Thanx man, really appreciate it, will check it now.
    December 15 02:30 AM

  • Rev duuuuuuuude you're crazy LA rules :p. how you been dude?
    December 1 10:27 PM
  • Deviant. Eh depends. I mean I LOOOOOOVE Los Angeles, but ever since then he's kind of felt like the emperor's new clothes. At the end of the day you kind of already have to be a fan of the kind of glitchy hip hop that he and the majority of his label put out, especially because he's become increasingly more abstract with every LP. I wouldn't use him as a stepping stone for the genre or anything
    December 1 10:05 PM
  • FearThyEvil9 I honestly never do anything on sputnik threads. I think I posted 3-4 times my entire time here in the forums. It seems pointless though because he/anyone who does troll ratings can just simply re-rate after they're wiped. I know I probably sound annoying and I'm sorry about that.
    December 1 01:48 AM
  • FearThyEvil9 I get what you mean but I honestly think he's troll rating though. He's 1'd entire discographies of godspeed, the dillinger escape plan, and a couple others. If it was a 1 rating for one album I'd understand. Problem is it's multiple albums by the same band.
    December 1 01:37 AM
  • FearThyEvil9 How was I being terrible in the Protest thread? Did you even look at that guy's profile. I'm surprised nobody reported him for troll ratings.
    December 1 12:07 AM
  • Azn. Ah well I think I might have a reputation as being not-so-respectful from some s*** I've done on this site, especially in conversation, so I'll have to keep myself in check for a while and write more. Specifically, what did you think about my A Lot Like Birds review?
    November 22 01:40 AM
  • Rowan5215 Righto, well I'll hit up their discog sometime then.
    November 22 01:12 AM
  • Rowan5215 I know he's capable of writing great melodies, a la FCPREMIX, but I dunno. They would have quite a lot of growing to do. But considering you're like the only other guy around smart enough to 5 No Place, I might take your advice.
    November 22 12:53 AM
  • Rowan5215 It's interesting that you mentioned both those guys and TMV as influences to ALLB, and I have the same problem with both TFOT and TMV; instrumentally they're tight as **** but the vocals just rub me the wrong way.
    November 22 12:26 AM
  • Rowan5215 Jamming now
    November 22 12:21 AM
  • Azn. thanks Omaha! Pretty encouraging haha. I plan on dropping a review for the new Closure in Moscow too. Are contribs expected to reach a certain threshold of reviews? Because there are some guys I never see writing but they're contribs
    November 21 10:09 PM
  • FiveLeavesLeft Hey man, would you be able to check my Rush review I posted? I'm experimenting with some new ways for me to write and I wanted to get a staff opinion
    November 21 04:56 PM
  • Tyrannic gotcha brobotwhat about that side blog you write for. i wanna do something with some equally stupid friends and itll be differently operated politics wise (because i cant tyrant them lol)

  • Xenophanes The 3:50 mark in Kuroi Ledge kills me every time. I like that track a lot, as well as No Nurture. They're all pretty good. What it lacks in absolute originality it makes up for being very tight, concise, and mature. Although the spoken word parts could easily fall into "cheese" territory they're done very well and add a lot to the over all theme.
    November 10 03:37 PM
  • Tyrael "Ty I see how it is" Thats what happens if you unfriend me on facebook! :D No but srs I was just giving examples dont take it personally man
    November 10 08:16 AM
  • Xenophanes I'm actually shocked at how much I'm enjoying No Place. I guess I've always judged the band too harshly on the few songs I've heard, as well as the whole 'scene image' that they have. Luckily i was just ignorant and your awesome review has found me a really nice record to listen to. Thanks!

  • andcas the new katy perry is gonna be so good. no cleavage right? #talentalone.
    October 18 10:24 AM
  • Ecnalzen Ha ha, no, you didn't. The way I go about writing a review for an album is pretty taxing and time consuming and for something that is currently a hobby, I'd rather it not take up so much of my free time and leave me drained afterwards. I just haven't quite figured out a new approach yet. I still appreciate your advice and will look for ways to incorporate it in my style once I get back into writing. Thanks for the concern though, guy!

    October 17 11:17 PM
  • TheSupernatural You wrote a review for me? I'm flattered.
    October 17 04:51 PM
  • Jom I'm featuring it now, but this is a curious problem that needs intervention from mx (since he's the one that sets usergroups on the reviews site). I'll let you know if/when he sees my message.
    October 17 01:26 AM
  • Tyrannic ey babay
    October 14 04:21 PM
  • InFiction The title track has guest vocals from Chelsea Wolfe and is a definite standout. Aside from that, Ethel is gorgeous.
    October 14 04:41 AM
  • scissorlocked As for the Hopkins' similarity, there's so many stuff with similar, lush aesthetic. You'll find some of it in Moderat's II or in Machinedrum's latest Vapor City (his previous album's are also great, even better). I'd also suggest giving John Roberts' Fences a chance for its organic compositions, Petar Dundov's Sailing off the Grid for its melodic approach, and Jacques Greene's On Your Side EP or Dj Koze's Amygdala, for being awesomely produced and catchy!
    October 13 08:57 AM
  • scissorlocked ok, let's see what we have! As for something similar to Solar Fields, you can always dig H.U.V.A Network, a project of Markus from Solar Fields and Vincent From Aes Dana. Ephemeris or Distances, their two albums won't let you down if you search for some deep and also danceable ambiance. I'd also suggest listening to Sync 24's comfortable void, it's the latest similar to Solar Fields thing I've dug, and it's pretty nice!
    October 13 08:32 AM
  • clercqie I must say it keeps on creeping up my top electronic list as well. It's at nr. 3 atm. Try VUURWERK, a Belgian garage trio. DJ Rashad also released his debut recently, but I don't know if it'll be your thing. Also, check out scissorlocked's 2013 Inamate Music list, has plenty of great stuff.
    October 13 04:33 AM
  • Typhoner Definitely check out Forest Swords if you haven't. Otherwise you might dig Zomby, Phaeleh, Moderat, Ghostpoet, E.m.m.a., Maya Jane Coles, Function, Ena and Felix K. If you ant EPs, then get ASC's Machine Love and Method One's Moonlight Mile. Maybe you already heard some of those, but lemme know what you liked.

    September 13 04:14 AM
  • Atari Alright man thanks. Not sure i can even find the words for what I wanna say but I might try and write something up. Did the album grow on you at all?

    September 5 11:39 AM
  • HolidayKirk I think the reviews you're referring to are the High Violet, OK Computer, Fortune type reviews. Those are the product of inspiration, they're written mentally and flow with ease once I get to a keyboard. Those reviews come out incredibly but the problem with them is they have to be born. I cant force that kind of writing and when I do it makes for some awful reviews. I've been working on the kind of writing that I can summon at will, since I cant be inspired all the time. Thanks for reading!

  • HolidayKirk Hey sorry for the late pass on your comment, my writing style has changed? How so?
    August 28 01:50 AM
  • Sleaper heeey man any recent electronic albums you've been digging? i feel like either nothing has really been released, or im just oblivious.

  • Atari wait, why are you digging them when you have them rated at a 2.3? lol
    August 20 04:06 PM
  • Atari that balance and composure rating hurts :/
    August 20 04:04 PM
  • PuddlesPuddles I visit museums and stand in front of Bosch paintings for a goof 20 minutes, staring heavily and lost in deep thought, before finally ejaculating "THERE'S Waldo."
    August 20 02:09 PM
  • SgtPepper Hey man. How is your band's album coming along?
    August 19 05:50 PM
  • CameoLover Hell yea dude, you should watch it when you get the chance. Judd is an absolute machine. The whole thing is up on YouTube, but here's Roquefort and New Day -- http://youtu.be/tYhjhvcy7xo -- http://youtu.be/asCwE3I3HCI

  • CameoLover Sup Jacob, have you seen the Live at the Forum DVD that came with Asymmetry?

  • DirEnRefused Hey Jacob, just sent it. Just give it a cursory look whenever you've got some time bud.
    August 5 06:51 AM
  • DirEnRefused Hey Jacob, would you mind awfully looking over a Trophy Scars review I just wrote? It's a little melodramatic and storyteller-ish, which is pretty new ground for me, and wanted a trained eye to give a quick scan. I dunno how I'd send it or anything though, hit me up if you've got the time and don't mind man. If not, it's totally cool.
    August 4 12:05 PM
  • mindhelix Totally agreed with your sentiments on that Karnivool album. "Half of the real tracks here reek of that infamous progressive metal pretense most of the group's contemporaries fall under"
    August 3 10:13 AM
  • clercqie Oh woops, guess it was the Alix Perez one. :p
    August 3 09:41 AM
  • clercqie Yeah, I remember. It was that Swindle album I really really hated. :p But I meant every word of if. Hell, you did a far far better job on Immunity then I ever could've done. Maybe being a native English speaker helps, but still. So yeah, just keep doing what you do. :] And I'm actually slowly getting into metal myself, so yay!

  • Cygnatti "The most striking bit of shapeshifting comes on 'On Being', where Conrad Tao assumes the Cookie Monster bark of a death metal frontman and turns out to be very good at it. Giving Taos skill at conveying menace and the darkly churning low end of his work on the bigger piano, a metal lean to the music makes perfect sense and maybe even seems inevitable..." I wanna know how you people wrote this kind of stuff. It looks like so much fun.
    July 8 08:41 PM
  • Cygnatti getting into electronic has been a really uphill battle...urgh.
    July 8 08:22 PM
  • Cygnatti also, I dig lateralus, always have. it's the reason why I decided that I might even be interested in prog metal (which obviously ended in disappointment, but at least I tried, right?). and yeah, I always thought that old people music was overly praised, espesh old people prog (and it really is) but a lot of it really is just THAT good. I think you'd dig them hard. in fact, you should totes make a list about it. ^_^
    July 7 08:22 PM
  • Cygnatti I've never been a progger, but since I've been listening to a lot of old people music, I found out that I adore 70s-80s prog rock. and also some bands like Queensryche, but I still try to listen to modern prog metal and alt prog, and I think I like them even less now.
    July 7 08:17 PM
  • Cygnatti Omaha, I don't like prog metal... Like really don't like prog metal. :[
    July 7 08:03 PM
  • YakNips Awesome :) I dig it so far. Reminds me a lot of The Fall Of Troy, just not quite THAT good. I do love the drumming though, the guitar tone is just a bit too metallic IMO. Still digging it though!
    July 4 07:44 PM
  • YakNips Oh wow. And Atari got my submission :D Ill get to work on it now!
    July 4 06:48 AM
  • Mister Twister Actually, Trinity Overture was power metal :(

  • Pestiferous thanks
    July 3 02:34 PM
  • Atari Sounds good man that makes sense ;) nice big boi rating by the way that's one of the few hip-hop albums i actualy enjoy
    July 3 02:32 PM
  • Atari lol raisehell was super stoked you were gonna review it but that's cool. Does that mean you're reviewing J Dilla?
    July 3 02:22 PM
  • Pestiferous sure
    July 3 02:20 PM
  • Atari review game assignment: Majestic - Trinity Overture. (Happy reviewing the guy who submitted the album is stoked it's gonna get a staff review ;)
    July 3 01:02 PM
  • ShitsofRain Hey, I commented on your Isles review. Take a look!
    July 2 11:33 AM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Metalcore (the good kind), death metal, grind, alternative, emo. Stuff like that. Bloc Party is great, but I guess that we disagree in opinion on the quality of "Four."
    July 1 08:02 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow We haven't, actually. I see you around a lot, too, though. We don't have very similar tastes, but we could still be friends haha.
    July 1 07:56 PM
  • cvlts haha now if i can just translate that into words on paper
