  • dannyboy89 Interesting. Well I'm a certified history teacher and am currently doing my MA in History. I'm considering studying anthropology in the future as well.
    April 18 04:10 PM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah man, everyone has a pet peeve. Having said that, I admire your skill in presenting your points skillfully and in detail. Not everyone has that. What field are you studying?
    April 18 02:14 PM
  • dannyboy89 I guess we slightly disagree on Heritage, but to each their pwn dude. At least we both like it.
    April 18 08:03 AM
  • dannyboy89 It happens. The world isn't perfect. Also, I jammed Agalloch today, and I gotta say Pale Folklore is pretty awesome.
    April 17 11:46 PM
  • CaptainDooRight ok cool. Well the new ep is only 4 tracks long and on either the first or second track i give a shout out to Fripp, Eunuch, and you because it came into my mind at that particular moment when i was recording. I haven't uploaded the tracks yet but album name, tracklisting, and art is already up on this site.
    April 17 03:03 PM
  • CaptainDooRight That's cool appreciate your honesty. I finished an EP for complete freedom yesterday and just need to finish mixing. Not sure if you'll like it more but you prolly won't know if you don't listen. But if you don't want to I respect that too
    April 17 02:11 PM
  • CaptainDooRight im only asking because i went back and listened to all the songs and enjoyed a lot of them, ill def the ones i didn't like tho
    April 17 01:57 PM
  • CaptainDooRight wait but honestly you didn't like the vocals bro cuz i really like some of them on the previous stuff. Like i won't have it too high in the mix tho but i feel the vox really added to the emotion and atmosphere like on the first track on the first lp with the praying mantis cover, thoughts? like do you have an example of what you didn't like specifically
    April 17 01:49 PM
  • CaptainDooRight oh right on cool, glad you had a chance to check it, yeah man i won't make complete freedom all stupid and stuff ill just be focusing on expressions my emotions and stuff and let loose a little more you know without being all serious all the time and shii, but itll still be a 110% serious project tho, itll just be more free in everyway possible
    April 17 12:48 PM
  • dannyboy89 Pretty s***ty tbh. We've been pretty much swamped economically for over 5 years (perhaps 6 or 7 years). It doesn't help that our politicians do nothing to improve things and, if anything, they have tended to make things worse.
    April 17 02:19 AM
  • dannyboy89 Alrighty dude. Changing the subject a bit, how's the British economy doing?
    April 17 01:54 AM
  • dannyboy89 Ofc, that depends on the album's composition too. Can't judge a 5-tracker, an 8-tracker, and a 12-tracker the same way.
    April 16 11:37 PM
  • dannyboy89 Anyways, to go further in depth with the rating thing. My 5's, (at least nowadays) have to be albums with no weak links or maybe a least-strong track that I don't skip. My 4.5's have to be very consistent as well. However, a 4 can have 1-3 skippable tracks. More than that though, and it gets a 3.5 or a 3.
    April 16 11:32 PM
  • dannyboy89 Not for nothing man, but I think the fact that you're British and I'm Puertorrican might have to do with our differences in perspectives. Brits, particularly Englishmen/women seem to have a reputation for a dark sense of humour, being a tad distant, etc. We, on the other hand, tend to be emotional, impulsive, carefree, etc. So I think cultural difference might play a role in our differences. Just sayin'.
    April 16 08:46 PM
  • CaptainDooRight also, can you please not go, i don't think that's polite
    April 16 01:32 PM
  • CaptainDooRight oh no im way past that bro, im 29 now. and yeah ill keep it honest i mean itll basically be an expiremental project. im honestly gonna just focus on what ive always envisioned with music with it while balancing my other projects, ive always wanted to keep an expiremental thing going so itll be nice to do something without expectations, i just wanna keep it honest you know which ill do
    April 16 01:31 PM
  • CaptainDooRight bro you'll prolly be pissed but im gonna bring back complete freedom and the number one rule will be no metronome its a expiremental and free thing but i promised Dev i wouldn't rate it, review it, or promote it stupidly, im thinking just one list for it and that's it, if peeps wanna check it they can but i just need a musical outlet to expand my beliefs of music, thoughts? cuz only your opinion matters honestly

  • Underflow I'm expecting a 4.5/5 review of the new Ian Anderson album within the week!
    April 15 10:07 PM
  • MisterTornado i've been meaning to listen to diamond dust again, something tells me i missed something on those first few listens...
    April 15 08:57 PM
  • dannyboy89 All their first 3 are flawless imo, so a good case can be made for any of them as far as I'm concerned. Having said that, I think our views on Opeth have become pretty similar, albeit with a different favourite. demi and Crysis also seem to hold similar opinions.
    April 15 04:04 PM
  • MisterTornado on my list, going too V soon! this might be my favorite venn rain yet...
    April 15 02:17 AM
  • dannyboy89 Just between us, Morningrise is rather overlooked as well. Man, that album rules so hard, and yet I've seen a couple of rankings placing it outside the Top 5.
    April 15 02:04 AM
  • dannyboy89 Man, it's appalling to see how criminally overlooked Orchid is in this site. It's my fave Opeth album atm, I love the diversity on it. Mid-era Opeth fans seem to be the overwhelming majority on this site. The fact that Orchid has a 3.7 average is disgusting imo.
    April 15 02:03 AM
  • MisterTornado ahh twin beaks is gorgeous! ~
    April 14 10:05 PM
  • menawati thats def one of the weaker tracks, find puer ferox adventus if its around anywhere
    April 14 05:53 PM
  • menawati I'll leave it jamie, hope you get round to it though it's really decent, feeling like a 4 to me only after a couple of listens
    April 14 12:15 PM
  • menawati just listening to the new ian anderson, sounding really good, are you going to do a review ? if so i'll not do one since you'll probably do it more justice
    April 14 06:58 AM
  • dannyboy89 He sure was a force to be reckoned with. In quite a few ways, he definitely ranks among metal's most unique personalities. He was kinda like the Achilles of metal I guess. He had a short life, but few people can claim to have single-handedly made so much impact on the sub-genre. He was Death, and Death was him. Great songwriter, great lyricist, amazing rhythm guitarist, the man was truly something special.
    April 13 03:09 AM
  • dannyboy89 How do you think Chuck Schuldiner managed to maintain such solid songwriting for so long?
    April 12 07:01 PM
  • dannyboy89 And I agree that Heritage is awesome as well. I love the jazzy elements on there.
    April 9 05:26 PM
  • dannyboy89 I'd say I'm more into Opeth now than I was in the past. Back when I thought BWP was their best, I wasn't really that much into them. But after realizing how much better the first 3 albums are, they've risen more in standing for me in comparison to other bands I jam.
    April 9 05:25 PM
  • Graveyard Ilyas Ahmed is one of my favorite folk musicians. Check out "With Endless Fire" if you haven't.
    April 9 05:22 PM
  • dannyboy89 BTW, did you recently bump down BWP. Not that it bothers me really, that album is very overrated imo.
    April 9 03:20 AM
  • dannyboy89 I only heard like the first few seconds, and that was it. Prob didn't even make it to the first minute.
    April 9 01:42 AM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, that'd be Hans. He's got all their first 5 albums 5'ed. Ofc I can understand, it was a big part of his life. But yeah, they get bumped a lot. The last song that came out was pretty meh imo.
    April 9 01:16 AM
  • dannyboy89 I never took you for a Metallica fanboy. I will admit that their first 3 records are rock solid, but I def like 'Deth and Anthrax more because I find their music more appealing. I'll admit that 'Tallica certainly knew how to come up with interesting song structures.
    April 9 12:49 AM
  • dannyboy89 Well, we can't agree on everything. Out of curiosity, does the fact that Bruford has a jazzy feel have to do with him being one of your faves?
    April 4 01:26 AM
  • dannyboy89 On another note, I can't say I'm a big Yes fan. I respect their legacy, but Anderson's vocals annoy me, plus I prefer the "smoothness" of bands like Floyd, KC and Genesis. Generally speaking, I don't dig high-pitched vox much, although I feel some vocalists (like Tate in his prime, and the same for Halford) knew how to execute it properly. My opinions in that regard do seem to be in the minority though.
    April 3 02:46 PM
  • dannyboy89 At the very least, those albums I mentioned have nary a weak track imo. Caress of Steel does have a weak track, and Permanent Waves is prob untouchable.
    April 3 07:28 AM
  • dannyboy89 Well, if we're talking lyrics, then I might side with you, since I seldom listen to Rush for the lyrics, whereas PF's lyrics are pretty much unavoidable (dunno if that made sense). However, in terms of producing the least filler, well, I wouldn't be too sure.
    April 3 02:42 AM
  • dannyboy89 I love both bands hard tbh, it's like picking a fave child to me. Both are at least Top 20 in my book. I even saw Rush live (which I think I've said a couple of times) and they're phenomenal in that realm. Plus, I think Rush's songwriting is pretty hard to beat, at least on AFtK, Hemi and MP.
    April 2 03:46 AM
  • dannyboy89 I get the impression that you're a bigger Floyd fan than Rush fan.
    April 1 06:56 PM
  • dannyboy89 Btw, I'm fairly familiar with the Big 4 of Jazz Fusion (Herbie Hancock, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report and Return to Forever) but I think I've only jammed albums from the first 2, and not really enough to appreciate them. I've also listened to Charles Mingus and Miles Davis, but only superficially. So while I do have an interest in jazz, I can't say I've exploited it.
    March 30 08:12 PM
  • dannyboy89 Tbh I think Nero and facupm are bigger prog-metallers than I am.
    March 30 05:35 PM
  • dannyboy89 balance between sweetness and savoriness, between solid musicianship and restraint. Plus, I worship Tate's vocals, even if he is a douchebag. I believe his voice isn't as good as it used to be though.
    March 30 05:08 PM
  • dannyboy89 One of the things I love about Queensryche is that, in their heyday, they had fairly well-constructed songwriting and great-if-subtle musicianship. Chris DeGarmo is one of my favourite guitar players, sadly the band won't be the same without him. One of the things I don't like about much prog-metal (at least what I've heard) is the overly sweet sound of much of that music, it really irks me. That's why I can't stand Pain of Salvation, for instance. For me, Queensryche knew how to strike a
    March 30 05:06 PM
  • BigPleb Poison bump for Daddy m/
    March 30 01:54 PM
  • dannyboy89 I like jazz actually, it's just that I rarely make time to listen to it. Other than rock, pop is prob my 2nd most listened to genre. I like hip-hop as well, although I'm very picky there. But music is a journey, not a destination.
    March 30 11:47 AM
  • Voivod Hey Jamie, I think this is right up your alley (Blues based Sabbath rock) - http://www.terrorizer.com/news/streams/stream-graviators-new-album-motherload-terrorizer/
    March 30 04:07 AM
  • dannyboy89 We obviously have a few differences in taste. We both dig prog, metal and classic rock, but I like alt-rock whereas you don't. And I love experimental-type bands, whereas you seem to be picky on that. And ofc, no one can agree on everything, so idk, but I just wanted to point it out. I also don't care much for technicality tbh, I look for other virtues in a musician, for me technicality is complimentary rather than essential.

    March 28 06:16 PM
  • dannyboy89 I despise dubstep though, **** Skrillex.
    March 28 05:56 PM
  • dannyboy89 I'll check 'em eventually. I'm no electronic music buff, but I do like some pop music, so getting into some electronica should be easy for me.
    March 28 05:56 PM
  • dannyboy89 Anyways, I see you rated two BoC albums. They seem to be pretty popular on this site.
    March 28 05:10 PM
  • dannyboy89 I'm one of the few who likes Queensryche's post-PL output, although it's obviously not on the same level, but we all have our guilty pleasures. OMC is pretty mediocre though, and DtC was really embarrassing.
    March 28 03:31 PM
  • dannyboy89 And yeah, I like PT, Opeth, and Queensryche way more than DT.
    March 28 02:34 PM

  • dannyboy89 Anyways, was jamming VH lately, and I gotta say, their songwriting wasn't all that great. My fave atm is W
    March 28 02:20 PM
  • dannyboy89 With regards to PT, I've been into them for perhaps 2 years or so, although I came to appreciate their work more in recent times. But I've always felt that they experimented more with their music, which I applaud. With DT, I feel they didn't really do much other than a rehash of their influences. And I don't dig LaBrie's vocals either. But obv we have differences there, and I welcome that difference. You don't seem to be the type to get offended when someone criticizes a band you like.
    March 27 10:22 PM
  • dannyboy89 I guess we have different ideas of what makes a great musician.
    March 27 09:53 AM
  • dannyboy89 If we're talking drummers, some of my faves are (out of order) Matt Cameron, Gar Samuelson, John Bonham, Jimmy Chamberlin and Neil Peart. There are others I could add but there's a sample.
    March 27 09:31 AM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, I'm starting to think that Discipline is rather overrated on this site. It's not all bad, but it just drags more than it should.
    March 27 12:45 AM
  • dannyboy89 Let's change the subject dude. I'm jamming ItWoP atm, and it's a fantastic KC record. Some great musicianship (although musicianship was generally KC's forte, at least on IttCK, Red, LTiA and Lizard).
    March 26 04:35 PM
  • dannyboy89 Portnoy doesn't impress me all that much tbh, I think his playing is wooden and mechanical. I usually like my drummers to have a free-flowing style, aggresiveness and good tone. IMO he has none of those 3, but to each their own.
    March 26 04:20 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Btw, I forgot to congratulate you for Man Utd's result against Olympiacos. It came as no surprise to me.
    March 26 01:40 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hello Jamie, I came to say goodbye. Right now I'm at a hotel in Sri Lanka and tomorrow morning I will board to the vessel. We will talk again after 6 months. I wish you luck.
    March 26 01:37 PM
  • dannyboy89 I guess I feel about DT more or less the same way you feel about PT. Nevertheless, I'll jam Awake and maybe Scenes these days and see how that affects my opinion. And yeah, I'm one of the few who criticizes DT on the site, but some diversity of opinion is necessary.
    March 26 01:31 PM
  • dannyboy89 I'd say atm that I'm the other way around with Satriani and Petrucci, but it's all opinion. I just don't identify with his leads. And I think Portnoy is a meh drummer as well. More or less how I feel about Lars Ulrich, 'cept I'd prob be likely to jam Metallica more often than DT.
    March 26 02:32 AM
  • dannyboy89 He was great def, although I'm not sure he'd make my Top 10. Do you think Petrucci's an overrated guitarist?
    March 25 08:04 PM
  • dannyboy89 BTW, you seem to really dig Andy Latimer, and I know that you like Gilmour a lot (his playing was phenomenal imo). Hackett was a solid player too.
    March 21 12:12 AM
  • dannyboy89 Priest definitely appeals more to me on guitar than Maiden, although it could be said that Maiden have generally been better songwriters. Priest was one of the reasons why I wanted to learn guitar, although it took me the longest time to realize that their 70's stuff was best.
    March 21 12:10 AM

  • Jacquibim Hey man, sorry if I was acting dickish in the GnR thread lol. But I am wondering, what have you heard of In Flames?
    March 9 04:55 AM
  • dannyboy89 Personally, I think I'd put them together with 'Deth and Anthrax and above Slayer and Metallica. It's all opinion though. Having said that, Sckolnick is a fantastic lead player.
    March 8 07:53 PM
  • dannyboy89 If you were to match up Testament against the US Thrash Big 4, where would they rank?
    March 8 02:27 PM
  • Onirium I see... Then, maybe you would like his side project Incredible Expanding Mind****, which is more like a krautrock/ambient thing similar to Signify. I hope PT comes back with something more original someday, as Wilson said they were bored of doing metal stuff.
    March 7 06:44 PM
  • Rowan5215 You're very welcome. Give Wet Dream a spin too, sometime.
    March 7 05:28 PM
  • Rowan5215 Well I'm very glad I was able to recommend you something, instead of vice versa. It is a fantastic album, only gets better with time.
    March 7 05:02 PM
  • SgtPepper Hey man. I dont know if you've heard this, but it is so good: youtube.com/watch?v=JFdaOHBvMYY - It's collaboration between the flower travellin band and another japanese prog-rock artist. The vocals are in japanese (I dont know if you're cool with non-english lyrics) but it rocked my head of. I hope you like it.
    March 6 10:14 PM
  • Onirium Yeah, well, I was introduced to PT by a friend who gave me Deadwing and I was really amazed, because the only things I was listening to were Dream Theater and Pink Floyd. However, I now know pretty well every of their albums and I would say their early years were not as original as Deadwing or Fear in my opinion. I actually think Wilson's songwriting skills are pretty good though. Maybe check out his solo career if you haven't already.
    March 6 06:22 PM
  • zakalwe He's one that by-passed me for awhile, a few tunes resonated and I picked up a few of his albums last year. Goldrush has been a constant since and is rapidly becoming one of me all time greats. Thoroughly recommended dude.
    March 6 05:08 PM
  • zakalwe Ello dude. Neil Young - After The Goldrush. Please discuss.
    March 6 04:14 PM
  • BigHans dude you have to jam that Ranger EP I reviewed, so many fists I guarantee youll love it
    March 6 11:04 AM
  • Rowan5215 I'm very very pleased. Wet Dream is a fantastic album too, both focus a lot on instrumentals although Broken China is much more atmospheric. Just don't ever even think about getting the album Identity he made under the "Zee" name. Trust me on that.
    March 6 05:55 AM
  • Onirium But, just curiously, what is your opinion about Porcuoine Tree?
    March 6 12:53 AM
  • Onirium You don't need to be sorry, it was indeed funny
    March 5 10:28 PM
  • Onirium This is why I prefer Porcupine Tree; everything they do is perfect.
    March 5 08:40 AM
  • BigPleb He is a turd, agreed.
    March 1 07:33 PM
  • BigPleb HAHAHAH Jamie dude, I love your hate on Wilson :]
    March 1 07:27 PM
  • dannyboy89 Do you like Mastodon?
    February 28 05:39 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Yeah, it will be a shame, but what can I do ? That's the seafarer's life. I'm quite sure that I will miss a lot during my travelling. Well, I got to live with the choices I've made.
    February 27 07:33 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Well, the fact that only Barca has ever made the comeback from a 2-0, should normally induce some determination and ambition to Utd's players to be the second team to do so. Its not impossible, but it is surely very tough. We'll see. Probably I won't be here to see the second leg though as I'm leaving in 2 or 3 weeks. We'll see...
    February 26 05:33 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie I still think that Man Utd will be the qualifying team. In your home ground, things will be completely different. But United must put up a great performance in order to surpass the score of the first match. I'm pretty sure that Olympiacos will follow an offensive tactic in the second match. He will not sit back waiting for Utd to attack. He will try to capitalize on United's weak defencive line.
    February 26 01:53 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie As for me, I couldn't sleep last night. Olympiacos's victory was the reason I love competitive sports. It amazes me when the underdog goes the distance against an objectively better opponent and if the underdog is the team you support, the feeling becomes all the more sweeter. Beating a team like Man Utd fair and squaire is sth you don't witness every day.
    February 26 01:43 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie If Moyes is given the opportunity to create the squad from scratch, then Man Utd might thrive again. He just needs the time to do it. Allow me to remind you that before Ferguson became the dominant figure in Premier League, his first seasons in Man Utd were also terrible.
    February 26 01:35 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Utd's players seemed to me to be bored, they didn't put enough pressure and they never went after the match really. I don't know if you think that Moyes is the person to be blamed for the bad season, but for me Moyes is not a bad coach. But for the moment he seems incapable of inspiring his players, not to mention that yesterday some of his choices for the first 11 were weird.
    February 26 01:31 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Thanks man. Man I couldn't believe what I was watching. I have watched Manchester many times this season and I was aware of their poor form. But yesterday their performance was just unbearable. I mean you've got world class players like Rooney, RVP and you create only one goal-scoring opportunity ? IMO, Olympiacos didn't pressured Utd's defence that much but their defending positioning was incredible.
    February 26 01:26 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie I think that ultimately Man utd will get past Olympiacos, but it will be very tough. Olympiacos will be competitive and will not give up that easily.
    February 25 09:01 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Sup Jamie how's life treating you ? Ever since Man Utd was drawed against Olympiacos I wanted to ask for your predictions, but I kept forgetting. I don't know if you remember, but I support Olympiacos. What do you think about the match up ?

  • OmairSh Hahaah my bad...... But you know it's true XD.
    February 20 10:19 AM
  • OmairSh I was watching the Atletico match while my room-mate was watching the arsenal one. Arsenal put up a good fight and while Ozil is getting a lot of hate, there's no doubt he's in the top 3 in Arsenal. Atletico didn't play very well. They managed the away goal but unless they get Man U in the quarters, I don't see them getting to the semi's with a performance like this.
    February 20 07:47 AM

  • OmairSh Alaba returns the favour. Milan decides to ****ing play football in this match. Atletico looking a little shaky
    February 19 03:51 PM
  • OmairSh Bayern to thrash Arsenal and Atletico to beat Milan
    February 19 02:30 PM
  • dannyboy89 I have to say I agree with you on ItCotCK. It's a revolutionary album for it's time, but that doesn't necessarily make it a masterpiece. "I Talk to the Wind" is prob my fave on it.

  • Atari Ya i noticed lol that sucks. I've been busy with some things but I'll definitely check it out. Just posted a review myself ;) Not your kinda thing i don't think, but if you read it i'm always happy to hear what you think

    February 11 12:22 PM
  • Atari haha thanks man. I haven't really been reviewing as much lately and i haven't done a new release in awhile so it's all good. I'm cool with just being contrib for now

    February 11 09:08 AM
  • BigPleb Thanks dude! We've added some vocals and are just trying to polish the mix. Will send you a link once its complete :]
    February 11 08:17 AM
  • dannyboy89 However, it's not popular to hate on BWP on this site. I just got flamed on the BWP thread.
    February 9 05:23 PM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, I just don't like the way 'Peth sounds on Still Life and BWP (especially the latter). I used to think it was their best record, but the riffs just sound terrible and that ruins the experience for me. I know you might disagree somewhat, but that's my opinion.
    February 9 03:50 PM
  • dannyboy89 Orchid's pretty awesome too, I believe Hawks loves that album too.
    February 8 07:52 PM
  • dannyboy89 Morningrise is such an awesome album man, I think it's safe to say that it's underrated in the Opeth catalog.
    February 8 03:51 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Now that the 6th has passed, it doesn't really matter whether our reviews will be uploaded simultaneously. Feel free to upload whenever it feels convenient. All you need to know is that by tomorrow I will have uploaded the review.
    February 8 11:43 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie I was writing exams this period mate and couldn't find the appropriate time to finish the text. I'll try to finish it today and I will upload it tomorrow. Might even upload it today, but it is tough.
    February 8 11:39 AM
  • dannyboy89 Also, KEA is sorely underrated on this site. I'm astonished to find I'm one of the few who thinks it's 'Tallica's best. And AJFA is very overrated on the site as well.
    February 7 09:44 PM
  • CaptainDooRight It's a song from a new album working on. I'm hoping to finish it sometime this year but it'll probably take more time than my previous releases because I wanna spend a lotta time on it.
    February 7 08:38 PM
  • dannyboy89 How would you compare Slayer's riffs to the rest of the US Thrash Big 4?
    February 7 07:18 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Awesome bro, I'm glad you dig it!
    February 7 05:28 PM
  • dannyboy89 So yeah, I take back my criticism of Plant. What's your opinion of Kreator's guitar riffs and solos?
    February 4 09:10 PM
  • dannyboy89 Saw a live video of Kashmir and it changed my mind about Plant. He was a beast live, a hell of a frontman.
    February 2 10:42 PM
  • FourthReich the robert plant hate on this site makes me sick
    January 30 03:22 AM
  • dannyboy89 But it's all opinion though. Do you have a fave Zep live album?
    January 29 10:12 PM
  • dannyboy89 Don't get me wrong: I admire the man's talent. But, for instance, on "Misty Mountain Hop" I felt he went overboard.
    January 29 10:00 PM
  • dannyboy89 I feel that Plant was an inconsistent vocalist: he was talented, but could be downright annoying at times. Dunno if you agree.
    January 29 02:36 PM
  • dannyboy89 Been jamming some Zeppelin dude. Their debut is amazing.
    January 29 11:46 AM
  • Wizard I hope you're going for Contributor status. I like your peskiness towards me (especially with Opeth) and you're writing is top notch.
    January 29 07:26 AM
  • BigPleb Coding error dude, Jom confirmed it. It's unfortunate :'(
    January 28 12:11 PM
  • dannyboy89 So yeah, I've learned 3 truths over time:70's Priest is better90's PT is better(Although I haven't revisited the Dio Era yet) Ozzy Era Sabbath is better
    January 26 11:46 PM
  • dannyboy89 Having said that, Sabbath's debut rapes; it's astonishing to think those first 3 records came out in a one-year span and took the world by surprise. Rock n' roll would never be the same after that.
    January 26 12:44 PM
  • dannyboy89 Mainly that you tend to prefer band's earlier eras to their later stuff, and, in general, I think you have a traditional taste (although I know you like modern stuff like Opeth and early PT).
    January 26 12:17 PM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, I'm finally beginning to understand how much Ozzy Era Sabbath rapes. Especially taking into account the fact that they were doing something new at the time, both MoR and Paranoid rule face.
    January 26 12:04 AM
  • Voivod I know you are not complaining ;). Cheers!
    January 18 12:24 PM
  • Voivod I hear you, I myself don't have a lot of free time, I'm posting these rec so you can check them whenever you have free time.
    January 18 12:19 PM
  • Voivod Cheers! Also, if you have time, check the two EPs from Blues Pills (debut's on YT), there's some dynamite material there in the vein of Janis Joplin.
    January 18 12:06 PM
  • dannyboy89 Do you like all of Rush's albums?
    January 18 11:45 AM
  • Voivod Jamie hi, I think this is up your alley - http://www.sputnikmusic.com/news/29785/Demon-Eye-stream-debut-album/
    January 17 07:25 PM
  • manosg Sure man, nice talking to you.
    January 16 02:20 PM
  • manosg Yeah I think you'll really enjoy his music once you become accustomed to it. At least that was the case with me. It took me some time to get into the first few albums of his but I've been checking his discog lately and it's solid. If you decide to listen to any of his albums the obvious choices are Astral Weeks and Moondance of course. Moondance is more accessible but both are 5s for me.
    January 16 01:19 PM
  • manosg Hey man, I see you haven't rated any Van Morisson stuff. It's quite odd knowing that you're into folk. Have you listened to any of his material?
    January 16 12:37 PM
  • dannyboy89 I made a list of Priest songs some time ago, I'd like for you to look at it and tell me what you think. It's the last one I made.
    January 16 12:03 AM
  • Atari man it's a hard choice, there's not a bad song. But the first 4 tracks from tangled up in blue through idiot wind is my favorite part of the album
    January 15 11:51 AM
  • Atari U see what my favorite album is? I know it's soon but it's definitely my favorite ATM :D
    January 15 10:51 AM
  • dannyboy89 I enjoyed Endgame and thought it was great back when I first heard it (maybe 2 years ago) but jamming it yesterday, it kinda grew off me. There are cool songs on it, but I agree that it doesn't touch their first 4.
