  • CaptainDooRight check Sean McCann - Ten Impressions For Piano And Strings
    January 26 05:05 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Yeah i thought that Gazpacho album was weak too. I've been way into ambient lately bro
    January 21 04:27 PM
  • RadicalEd I am now addicted to Benoit Pioulard. Thx.
    January 13 03:15 AM
  • RadicalEd Will do, thx =)

    January 9 02:14 PM
  • DecayingMajesty no worries :)
    January 9 01:29 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Ok
    January 9 01:26 PM
  • RadicalEd No, not at all. Never heard of the guy. Even better? Sounds awesome.
    January 9 07:39 AM
  • RadicalEd I checked Orcas - Yearling, because it was pretty high on your list and it's amazing =)
    January 9 03:34 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot apparently it's leaked but idk. I'll probably review it if no one else bites
    January 8 11:18 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah i bet, haven't heard gimu's latest yet tbh. are you excited for the new jefre cantu-ledesma?
    January 8 11:13 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot this leonardo rosado - "adrift" is probably my drone aoty, might be up your alley too
    January 8 11:07 AM
  • Cygnatti Honestly don't know why I didn't think of it sooner but try Jon Hopkins - Immunity. It's probably my favorite house record by a long shot (it happens to be idm too). It's very spacious with plenty of ambient so I think there's at least a good chance that you'd enjoy it.
    January 6 08:35 PM
  • Cygnatti hmm, try yor - lack of being. on of my favorites of 2014, but i'll try to find a few more you might dig later. bit busy for now.
    January 5 04:56 PM
  • Cygnatti just curious, but i take it that you're too big on house music, eh?
    January 5 02:51 PM
  • Wizard Have you ever given Nadja a try? They're dark, droning doom with a huge emphasis on melody. Touched, Body Cage and Radiance in Shadows are all a good start. New Agalloch is pretty dark as well if you haven't given that it's due spins.
    January 4 06:47 PM
  • Wizard New Dawnbringer 'Night of the Hammer' and Slough Feg's 'Digital Resistance' are modern NWOBHM essentials in my opinion. I have no idea why I forgot about them but I will change that on my list.
    January 4 11:31 AM
  • Snowdog808 Happy New Year Jamie! Thanks for being an awesome user to me throughout 2014. I recently bumped up A Passion Play a half point after several listens to my copy. I seriously think it's a beyond worthy successor to Thick as a Brick.
    January 1 10:16 AM
  • Titan thanks man, i'll check em out
    December 29 05:06 PM
  • Titan knowing my taste, rec me 1 album from your list that i will have the best shot of enjoying
    December 29 04:21 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo, methinks you'd enjoy this kate carr - fabulations album a bit
    December 27 11:34 AM
  • ChoccyPhilly I know we're pretty much polar opposites in electronic music, but check out Shpongle - Ineffable Mysteries. I'm like 98% sure you'll like it
    December 22 08:55 PM
  • omnipanzer Mark Knopfler - The Ragpicker's Dream
    December 22 07:42 PM
  • oltnabrick fml
    December 22 04:33 PM
  • Titan haha i had the itch
    December 22 12:13 PM
  • Titan cmon man bumping 80's glam like crazy lately and you aren't biting
    December 22 08:09 AM
  • Keyblade Aww sweet, will read. I have this wishlisted on RYM but haven't checked it out yet
    December 21 05:29 AM
  • Titan You really should review Made In Japan. The passion you have for that record is second to none. I'd be interested in that for sure, especially because I don't quite hail it the way the rest of you guys do.
    December 17 08:18 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Yeah, I wasn't here so I couldn't know. :P
    December 16 05:08 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Jamie what's up ? I was checking your reviewing list and I think there are some missing reviews. I'm quite sure "We Want Moore" wasn't your first one. I think you had reviewed VH II and a couple of others.
    December 16 04:24 PM
  • ViperAces hey jamie, do you care to check out the band in my list from the other day? would love to hear your thought about them
    December 14 12:08 PM
  • Torontonian aight, each to his own i guess, still made me very sad when i saw that though.
    December 5 11:42 PM
  • Torontonian Im talking about the unfive on RYM. What the ****!??! http://quotes.lol-rofl.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Emoticon-Sad-Face.jpg
    December 5 04:18 PM
  • Torontonian Bro what happened to your moonmadness rating?!?! What kind of sick games are you playing here?!! Is this some vile prank? D':
    December 4 10:09 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges That Ben Frost rating! YES
    November 28 10:51 AM
  • dannyboy89 Is MAYH your fave prog-metal album?
    November 27 09:27 AM
  • Torontonian sorry if those posts were annoying. simply trying to spread my bjork fanboyism wherever possible.
    November 26 03:30 PM
  • Torontonian homogenic was a life changing album for me. I guess i can understand though, as she is rather different musically. cheers
    November 26 03:29 PM
  • Torontonian hey, what do you think of bjork? just asking as ambient and electronic seem to make up a lot of your pie chart of 2014, plus i think you would like it(only asking cus it doens't seem like you've rated any of her albums on RYM).
    November 25 11:04 PM
  • omnipanzer So I finally went through the older Fleetwood Mac stuff you recommended and you're right it's great stuff. The brilliant experimentation on Tusk is still my favorite but the greenwood stuff is definitely in my collection now.
    November 25 08:26 PM
  • dannyboy89 Which Motley Crue albums are the ones you'd recommend?
    November 23 11:47 AM
  • Titan yeah we all can't always capture the essence since they're only typed words in a post. i know i've come across wrong or misunderstood many times....all good on my end as well
    November 22 07:29 PM
  • Titan Hah! it's called breaking balls and at the end of the day - always in good fun. Nothing around here will wind me up dude.
    November 22 03:33 PM
  • Titan are you really asking me if i have a problem on an internet forum? not sure what angle you're coming from......loosen up Jamie
    November 22 03:23 PM
  • omnipanzer going back through the JJ Cale discog... so good.
    November 17 09:15 PM
  • dannyboy89 Finally 5'd it hard, it was about time.
    November 17 08:33 PM
  • dannyboy89 I'm coming to the conclusion that, as awesome as Fireball, Machine Head and In Rock are, they just don't seem to capture the band at their very best. Maybe that's the reason why MiJ beats them all.
    November 16 08:41 PM
  • dannyboy89 Part of the reason why I love Mindcrime so much is due to the political aspect as well as the music itself. I prob fanboy over QR more than many on the site, but we all have our fanboyisms.
    November 14 11:05 PM
  • Torontonian Thanks!
    November 12 04:57 PM
  • Torontonian Hey! can you tell me how you got your ratings wiped? cus i kinda want to do the same thing. my ratings are a mess. SHould i just contact a moderator or something?
    November 12 03:56 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie I see, so you will start the whole process from the beginning I guess ? You will re-listen to all these albums and start rating from zero ?
    November 10 07:58 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie another ratings victim, damn Jamie
    November 5 07:31 PM
  • Torontonian What happened to all of your ratings?!?!?!
    November 5 05:07 PM
  • OmairSh I initially thought it was targeted at wwba, but from what I remember his comment didn't seem humorous, so I thought you were talking to me :-P. No worries, it was all a misunderstanding :-).
    November 5 02:23 PM
  • OmairSh Good to know :-), with that comment on Pots' list I just thought I'd finally ask you about it.
    November 5 01:46 PM
  • OmairSh I have been sensing some disdain from you for a little while, just wanted to ask whether there was something I said a while back to piss you off or something?
    November 5 01:02 PM
  • Atari sweet bro, i'm looking forward to exploring the genre more!
    November 4 06:11 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Ah, I see. Unfortunately life can get like that, hopefully you find the time to get on it again soon. Especially now it's coming up to winter. =D
    November 4 04:46 PM
  • Atari well i'm more familiar with folk than ambient but considering how much I like ambient influences in black metal I can see it becoming one of my favorite genres overall :]
    November 4 02:14 PM
  • Cygnatti don't mind me, i'm just pretty salty bc i asked for a wipe last week and never got it. pretty much 50-60% of my ratings that aren't my 5s or 4.5s are inaccurate, it's bothering me so much.
    November 4 02:09 PM
  • Cygnatti ya got a ratings wipe? x_x
    November 4 01:54 PM
  • Atari thanks for the rec man! strangely enough despite having more folk influence I don't like dragging a dead dear as much as ruins or alien observer from what I've heard haha
    November 4 01:10 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass All good this side thanks dude. Done much photography recently? Presume your profile picture is one of yours? I dig it a lot.
    November 4 12:28 PM
  • Atari yeah i hear you man. I've had mine wiped several times but I feel like I always end up in the same place so now I just adjust my ratings as necessary when I need to. Gonna check out more Grouper but got any ambient recs similar to her stuff?
    November 4 12:19 PM
  • ButteryBiscuitBass Hey man, you OK? You'll probably hate it, but check my song: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=152294Working on this direction for a side project, basically instrumental stuff, just me and two acoustic guitars.
    November 4 07:26 AM
  • Atari listening to alien observer and it's pretty damn cool. I love how it doesn't even sound anything like Ruins but it still rules just the same. by the way was the ratings wipe intentional?
    November 3 05:38 PM
  • DecayingMajesty by 'that' i mean the mistake i made in my soundoff
    October 30 06:10 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Integrity are great man. Thanks for pointing that out by the way :)
    October 30 06:09 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Which bands do you consider alright?
    October 30 05:46 PM
  • DecayingMajesty So...why don't you like any metalcore?
    October 30 04:48 PM
  • WeepingBanana i just wish there was a song as cool as Face Down on Weirdon. it just plays it a little too safe i guess
    October 30 01:15 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges "Damn dude, that's like the worst song on that album." Lol, I haven't listened to it in forever.
    October 29 11:12 PM
  • WeepingBanana how do you feel about the new purling hiss? i def think water on mars was way better, but learning slowly is such a jam. saw them last night and they ruled
    October 28 01:33 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thanks for the compliment. definitely can be iffy writing more personal review, but I'm glad it worked out well.
    October 26 03:10 PM
  • Jethro42 Leonard Cohen (''Songs for Love and Hate'' that you rec'd to Friday) is brillant. I give that a second listen in a row and I already know it's at least a 4.5. I wish he sang in French haha!
    October 24 06:31 PM
  • CaptainDooRight will doo my nig ov nigz
    October 23 10:28 AM
  • omnipanzer I just said that the Live and Dangerous solos are phenomenal. ;-)
    October 19 07:56 PM
  • Artuma so, i checked the new manes album and you really might dig it. it's not fully trip-hop but it has a lot of elements of it. and it's definitely not black metal, i get a lot of marriage/perdition era ulver vibes from it
    October 16 05:32 PM
  • omnipanzer I was listening to Jailbreak (remastered) and Live and Dangerous, both fantastic. A couple of those solos on L
    October 16 02:56 AM
  • omnipanzer Getting into some Thin Lizzy. m/
    October 15 07:49 PM
  • zakalwe Cool. I have the patience of a saint and wait in hope!
    October 13 01:43 PM
  • zakalwe JT bro. Please review Fish Rising, only you can do it justice.
    October 13 09:24 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah, no worries, man.
    October 11 05:46 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Took a while to grow on me too. Have you heard the new Teebs? Really good glitchy IDM.
    October 8 04:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. I was asking because one of my favorite electronic releases this year is Ben Frost's new album, A U R O R A. It's really unnerving, almost threatening ambient music that focuses around a spacey concept.
    October 8 02:36 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeah man, new Fennesz is really great. Do you dig really spacey ambient stuff?
    October 8 02:30 PM
  • Mongi123 The folk/Bm combo is something they're amazing at and I wish they kinda expanded upon that even more cause the straight folk or straight Bm sides of them aren't as good. But yea perdition city creates a really awesome atmosphere and the lyrics are fantastic. And don't even get me started on Shadows haha
    October 8 12:48 PM
  • Mongi123 I'm not normally huge on electronic stuff too so perdition city is an amazing change of pace for me.
    October 8 12:35 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Haha, got any other big electronic digs?
    October 7 09:27 PM
  • Mongi123 Dude Ulver is the best. I'm so glad I decided to get into them. I'm even loving their bm stuff which I thought would never happen :D
    October 7 07:29 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Didn't know you liked Aphex Twin and Massive Attack.
    October 7 05:23 PM
  • Rowan5215 I feel like twelve songs was a bit excessive for that album and some of the rockier ones were a bit off, eg Hell's Angels
    October 6 05:05 PM
  • Rowan5215 Glad you enjoy it. Check out the albums Sunrise Over Sea and Three to follow up on that. I'd go with consensus and say Stormcock was a favourite, but with Folkjokeopus a close second
    October 6 04:50 PM
  • Rowan5215 Haha yeah, when I get into artists I really get into them. Jamming 6-7 albums by one artist at once is my MO, that's how I get into discogs. Check out the song Ocean, especially the 2012 version, Butler's guitar skills are ridiculous. Yeah I feel you on that, although its completely badass than JPJ and Gilmour both play on that song from HQ the mix kinda buries them and its a bit of a waste. Hallucinating Light is amazing too though
    October 6 02:36 PM
  • Rowan5215 That's all good - I didn't sleep tonight anyway. And yeah, When An Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease gave the chills, his longer songs are spot on. I get that in terms of instruments it doesn't have much similarity to prog but as far as structure and songwriting goes, I don't think its a far-fetched claim. By the way, have you ever heard of a musician called John Butler? He plays a similar sort of progressive folk with amazing guitar, you might dig his early stuff
    October 6 02:19 PM
  • Rowan5215 Wow, his longer songs are really something. Could you count Circle as the first prog song, do you reckon? Because it pre-dates King Crimson and it definitely has a proggy structure. Also Me and My Woman is something else
    October 6 05:04 AM
  • Rowan5215 He's a terrific singer and lyricist and I'm definitely going to be revisiting his discog frequently
    October 6 02:54 AM
  • Rowan5215 I'm checking out Roy Harper today based off your recommendation
    October 6 12:42 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie I'm also interested in pursuing my studies abroad. So once i'm done with my studies here (2 more remaining years) I will definitely come to England. I want to go to Newcastle and study there because I do not intend to spend the rest of my life drifting in the oceans.
    October 1 05:51 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Wow man that's really interesting. I wish you'll achieve your goals one day.
    October 1 05:38 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie What do you want to do ?
    October 1 05:26 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie What about you man ? Are you studying sth at the moment, or do you have a permanent job ?
    October 1 05:12 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Quite interesting and as pleasant as it could be my friend. It was very short (5 months and 15 days feels nothing if you think that my previous trip lasted 9 months) and it was quite beneficial economically. Apart from that, I learned quite a lot during those 5 months which at the end of the day it is the most important thing for someone who is a trainee.
    October 1 04:58 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie What's up Jamie, it's been a while.
    October 1 02:15 PM
  • aok 'm' slash - didnt realize they contrib'd u duuder lol
    September 26 04:37 PM
  • Torontonian np. heres a full album of his if you're interested. Its so good it feels like it only lasts like 15 minutes. Its the best thing i've heard in months.
    September 21 09:38 AM
  • NorthernSkylark i haven't even heard of him! but i'll check it. what album should i start with?
    September 21 09:33 AM
  • Torontonian Hey, i've got a rec for ya! tell me what you think if this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5T01l3huB-8

  • oltnabrick ****ING NERD ALERT: http://magntophonique.bandcamp.com/album/monte-magn-tophonique-split-dept-tapes
    September 16 12:05 AM
  • Frippertronics No prob man, cheers.
    September 14 04:50 PM
  • Frippertronics If you dig that one, I'll send one from the second LP if you want.
    September 14 04:45 PM
  • Frippertronics As for the songwriting, both albums are full of it, so you'd love that. Some technical stuff as well, but it isn't overdone like with ELP.
    September 14 04:42 PM
  • Frippertronics ah, i was opting whether or not to recommend the band Morgan, and their two albums. The first album is a mix of psych/keyboard-driven stuff with four tracks, the latter is more band-oriented and experimental, also with four tracks. Here's a track from the first album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzKrYossZH0
    September 14 04:40 PM
  • Frippertronics hey, i was wondering what type of prog are you most interested in? Like, keyboard-driven, or..?
    September 14 01:40 PM
  • oltnabrick haha what a ****ing nerd
    September 12 01:58 PM
  • CaptainDooRight haha, and koo thanks for that feedback, yeah it had some errors on it but my main quarrel that im fixing on future album is making sure the drums are perfectly tight as there was a few places it just didn't fit or was off tempo a tad, thanks again tho
    September 11 12:30 PM
  • CaptainDooRight haha :], I was thinking about making a news article for it and calling it 'Trvth Exposes Inner Thoughts', but lol how corny is that..
    September 11 11:56 AM
  • CaptainDooRight I know you like progressive instrumental jazz rock metal now and then so you might dig this: https://trvth.bandcamp.com/album/inner-thoughts
    September 11 11:44 AM
  • BigPleb I think Belew might be the best musician of all time.
    September 5 12:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Sweet. Looking forward to it!
    September 1 12:39 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, thanks. You got any big review plans coming up?
    August 31 07:34 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges You seem to be a big prog fan.
    August 31 06:28 PM
  • Mad. Definitely check out the band Spirits of the Dead man, got a very folky vibe with classic rock mixed in there
    August 14 07:18 AM
  • BigPleb Oh damn dude sorry, I havent seen it yet! Will Czech now.
    August 13 12:20 PM
  • BigPleb Na man, ily haha! Was kidding :]
    August 8 04:13 PM
  • beefshoes No problem man. Yeah, the Genesis influence was extremely strong on the first Marillion album, but it definitely started to calm as the albums progressed. I enjoy their poppy stuff, but it's nowhere close to being on the level of an artist like Peter Gabriel or Kate Bush.
    August 3 04:46 PM
  • danielcardoso Hey Jamie, hope all is going well. I started writing my Scorpions reviews again, I wrote one for Tokyo Tapes. If you have time to spare, you could give it a read. I'll be posting my Lovedrive review soon. Cheers man.

    July 16 01:34 PM
  • BigPleb Get in the BWP thread and shun these idiots, please.
    July 14 11:39 AM
  • Frippertronics swee, i'll check it out
    July 13 01:56 PM
  • Atari yeah, it sounds pretty nice so far :D
    July 11 06:11 PM
  • Atari sweet thanks man i'll definitely check them out
    July 11 05:59 PM
  • Atari got any recs for something simiilar to vali or musk ox? preferably just something beautiful without vocals haha
    July 11 05:32 PM
  • Atari Sweet man i've never heard the Chateau tapes so should be interesting! i also haven't jammed Tull in a while cause i've been going through a black metal/ambient phase but i'll be sure to check it out when i get the chance ;)
    July 10 04:56 PM
  • Atari yeah i know you're talking about the jethro tull album haha but i thought you meant steven wilson did his own version of the passion play and not just a remix/remaster. Do you like it better than the original?
    July 10 04:42 PM
  • Atari sweet man i appreciate the rec! i actually haven't heard steven wilson before should i get acquianted with his other stuff before trying his take on passionp lay?
    July 10 04:31 PM
  • Jethro42 I'll probably end up to buy it in a record store.
    July 10 04:13 PM
  • Jethro42 I'll try to find it somewhere. The thing is that I dont have much place to find torrents anymore. They're almost all closed for the good.
    July 10 04:09 PM
  • Atari it's all good just curious. Just don't forget to share your thoughts once you give it a go :D
    July 10 04:07 PM
  • Jethro42 This sounds interesting. Do you have a link for me?
    July 10 04:01 PM
  • Atari dude have you had the time to check out musk ox - woodfall yet? I'm curious to hear what you think
    July 10 03:39 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Thanks JT, I would be most appreciative of that.
    July 2 04:34 PM
  • Atari no worries man, it's not often i find something i think you might dig (usually it's the other way around) but i know you like ambient and folk so figured it might be something you'd enjoy ;) I just discovered it yesterday so i haven't even listened enough to rate myself, but it's definitely solid
    July 2 03:46 PM
  • Atari hey man i have a rec for you. Check out Musk Ox -Woodfall. I could really see you digging it, it's all instrumental but man is it a beautiful album
    July 2 03:09 PM
  • Inhalation3 Germany vs ghana, not portugal
    June 21 05:04 PM
  • Inhalation3 i stick with my fly as hell statement
    June 21 05:02 PM
  • Inhalation3 Pretty sure Germany have always been playing against Ghana man, but whatever
    June 21 05:00 PM
  • Inhalation3 what do u mean?
    June 21 04:58 PM
  • dannyboy89 Having said that, I do like Skid Row, which I haven't jammed in a while. Need to check the debut and jam the sophomore properly.
    June 6 10:55 PM
  • dannyboy89 But that's just my opinion, and I respect yours.
    June 6 05:57 PM
  • dannyboy89 I used to like GN'R in the past, but as I got into other music, I kinda listened to them less and less. While I understand their place in music history (which is huge undoubtedly), I kinda find them to be overrated. Ofc that's just my opinion. As for Slash, well, I dislike the wah-wah sounds he makes on some of his leads. They're just annoying to my ears.
    June 6 05:55 PM
  • dannyboy89 As for the 60's, I'm not quite as picky, but some stuff from that era kinda feels dated for me, so I like to stick to the bands from that era that appeal the most. I do like to make connections in terms of what influenced what (as you must've gathered by now), but at the same time I don't like to listen to bands just because they were influential.
    June 6 02:14 AM
  • dannyboy89 I mean bands like Queensryche and Megadeth (products of the 80's) are among my faves, but I'm rather picky when it comes to the 80's.
    June 6 02:09 AM
  • dannyboy89 Well the 90's are my fave decade, followed by the 70's, and then the 60's and 80's are about even for me due to the fact that I don't generally jam as much stuff from those decades as I do the others. I guess you're more familiar with 2010's stuff than I am, given that I'm picky with what I check from the 2000's onwards.

  • dannyboy89 Are the 70's your fave decade? you always seem to be a 70's guy at heart.
    June 5 06:45 PM
  • BigPleb Haha, you are a clever one Mr Anderson ;]
    June 4 01:08 PM
  • BigPleb Damn it dude, sack going out HAVE YOU SEEN HOW MANY TIMES I'VE JAMMED IT?!?!
    June 4 01:01 PM
  • BigPleb The first 2 minutes or so are progressive gold with some of Axe's best drumming yet. Then it settles into a more melodic keyboard groove with some awesome layered vocals. Its like Heritage with teeth basically, so cool.
    June 4 12:58 PM
  • BigPleb Good lord you are gonna love the leaked Opeth track honestly man, makes Cusp looks so average. I know thats not saying much man but its like a more melodic progression of Heritage, Axe brings the grooves like a master and the keyboard playing is superb.
    June 4 12:51 PM
  • danielcardoso But only if you REALLY have time to spare, because it's a very long review, undoubtly my longest yet. Anyway, I'd appreciated if you read it and gave some feedback. Take care, man.
    June 3 03:06 PM
  • danielcardoso Hey, Jamie. I hope you're doin' alright. I noticed that you listed Guns n' Roses in your "Favorite Bands" list, and that made me wonder how you feel about Chinese Democracy. It's probably their most controversial record. And it's true that it's more an Axl Rose solo album than a proper Guns one, but I still find it quite an excellent effort. I want to know what's your general opinion on it. If you have some time, I was hoping you could the review I wrote for it.
    June 3 03:04 PM
  • Underflow Just realized that you and I actually agreed on something relating to Opeth. An omen?
    June 2 02:15 PM
  • Keyblade Yep, seems like he's gonna continue his other projects. Good excuse to finally get into some of them I guess. There's a lot of his material I need to check out asap
    June 1 01:56 PM
  • Keyblade Wow that sucks, would've liked to hear more from him. Still need to hear Twin Beaks too. Cheers dude
    June 1 08:28 AM
  • dannyboy89 What's your fave Iron Maiden song, if any?
    May 31 06:28 PM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, you definitely like DT more than I do, it's not hard to see. I've been familiar with FW for quite some time, and so far I'd say they did some cool stuff, but I don't see myself fanboying over 'em as much as I do with other bands.
    May 31 05:43 PM
  • dannyboy89 Btw, which do you like most out of Fates Warning and Dream Theater?
    May 31 05:25 PM
  • dannyboy89 Queensryche's one of my favourite bands, as you've prob gathered by now, so I guess I can be more than a bit biased towards them.
    May 31 04:27 PM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, they were amazing. Too bad they don't get discussed enough on the site. They were sort of like a "dream team" in the hard rock world imo.
    May 29 02:25 PM
  • dannyboy89 Do you consider yourself a Deep Purple fan?
    May 29 03:24 AM
  • dannyboy89 Btw, I agree with you that Come Taste the Band is quite underrated. It has to be heard for what it is (as some albums need to be) as opposed to listening to it in light of Mk. II material.
    May 29 12:29 AM
  • dannyboy89 Since Floyd, Genesis and Priest were all influences of Queensryche, I kinda felt it logical that Gabriel influenced Tate. Maybe we've had different listening experiences, I dunno.
    May 28 10:49 PM
  • Mad. Yo, I reviewed this album, I think you'd dig - it's a bit like Wolf People which I saw you reviewed, and one of 2014's best: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/62462/Messenger-Illusory-Blues/
    May 25 07:28 PM
  • Voivod Jamie, the Ian Anderson album is streaming here - http://www.progstreaming.com/_wb/pages/play-album.php?activeAlbum=00744 - Ian Anderson - Homo Erraticus. Put the link to your review's introductory post like whenever. Cheers!
    May 25 06:52 AM
  • dannyboy89 It's kind of a shame that DP doesn't get as much attention on Sput as they should.
    May 24 05:31 AM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, it was pure curiosity. I've never been to anywhere in Europe, so it'd be sweet to do some sightseeing someday.
    May 22 02:51 PM
  • dannyboy89 Have you been to Scotland and/or Wales? What's it like?
    May 22 02:48 AM
  • dannyboy89 That might explain why I can listen to metal, prog, alt-rock and pop without any issues. I can easily be in the mood for one or the other. But everyone's different.
    May 22 02:46 AM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, I definitely get the impression that we look for different things in music (like everyone does). It's kinda hard for me to put into words what I look for, but for now I'd say eclecticism, energy and/or emotionality, depth, introspection, something that hits psychologically, riffs, and kickass leads ofc. Musicianship certainly helps, although I don't value it so much on technicality as I do on flow, uniqueness and stuff.
    May 22 02:44 AM
  • dannyboy89 How'd you get into Jethro Tull?
    May 18 01:30 AM
  • dannyboy89 I think I already said this, but Priest is one of the bands that has inspired me the most when it comes to guitar. If anything, they've come to inspire me more, riffs like those on Sad Wings and lead work like that on Beyond the Realms of Death inspires me hard. But hey, I'm a fanboy.
    May 18 01:29 AM
  • dannyboy89 It's amazing how well those riffs on Sad Wings sounded though. I'm pretty biased when it comes to Priest, they're one of my Top 10 bands, even if their post SC stuff has grown off me for the most part.
    May 17 07:54 PM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, it's all opinion. It'd be boring if we all had the same favorites anyway.
    May 17 07:36 PM
  • dannyboy89 I get the impression that you're a bigger prog fan than metal fan. Also, what makes VoC your fave Priest song? I slightly prefer Tyrant, but it's in my Top 5 for sure.
    May 17 04:40 PM
  • danielcardoso Yeah, nice to see you like it too, it's much different than his work with bon jovi and it's pretty good. Nice to see him pursue his blues influences, it's quite a good result.
    May 14 01:54 PM
  • danielcardoso Hey Jamie, hope all is well. I know you dig your blues a lot, so I think you'd want to hear "Stranger In This Town", by Richie Sambora. It's from his first solo album. If you have time to listen to it, I think you'd really enjoy it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBGV9jM_TQ4Take care, man.
    May 14 01:29 PM
  • dannyboy89 Fair enough dude.
    May 13 04:32 PM
  • dannyboy89 Out of curiosity, why do you dislike bands like DEP and TMV?
    May 13 03:08 PM
  • dannyboy89 We do seem to have similar views on old-school prog, classic metal, and thrash. But yeah, there are bound to be slight differences even there. To change the subject, I really want to work on my guitar skills a bit, given that I have a passion for music.
    May 7 05:17 PM
  • dannyboy89 I know you get along well with zak, Pleb and foxxxy even though they all love grunge about as much as I do, so I don't think that should affect our discussions too much.
    May 6 07:43 PM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah man, I'm a big grunge fan, particularly with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains. It's not for everyone though, so I can understand why you wouldn't like it. I kinda feel grunge revived the spirit of late 60's-early 70's hard rock, but that's just my opinion. And yeah, not a big fan of glam, I only care for a few bands like Dokken, Skid Row and Tesla, I just find glam to detract from the qualities I love about rock n' roll. I used to love it, but it grew off for the most part.
    May 6 07:41 PM
  • dannyboy89 I saw on a thread that you think Page is slightly overrated. I agree, he definitely complimented Zep well and was key to their sound, but I'm not that big on his lead playing.
    May 4 12:20 AM
  • OmairSh I hate Chelsea mainly because they beat Barca a couple of years back in the UCL semi's, won't ever forgive them it seems :P. I can see why you wouldn't like Atleticos style. They play well on the counter, and have some good silky passing abilities, but as the seasons progressed they've gotten a little sloppy. Their pressing is relentless and that's the part people dislike the most I think.
    May 3 03:53 PM
  • OmairSh I fvcking hate chelsea. I'm hoping for Atleti to pull the double. I've been rooting for them since the start of the season. It's been such a remarkable turn around for the team over the past 2.5 years
    May 2 09:23 PM
  • dannyboy89 Alrighty.
    May 1 01:38 AM
    May 1 01:28 AM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, I have to ask, what are some of the traits you look for in a drummer? You seem to lean towards the more technical dudes, whereas I tend to prefer drummers with a less formal approach.
