  • BMDrummer you stole my line smh
    September 22 10:12 PM
  • SgtPepper love your avatar. don't care what anyone says that movie is a classic (although I'm skeptical about the supposed sequel)
    September 22 05:37 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges You thought well.
    September 18 05:52 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Holy s***, dat new avatar.
    September 17 05:38 PM
  • scottpilgrim10 No problem, I hope you like the record.
    September 12 08:42 PM
  • scottpilgrim10 Yeah it's definitely good. I'm suprised it wasn't more popular on Sput considering how much the site loves her last album.
    September 12 10:11 AM
  • scottpilgrim10 Have you heard the new Jenny Hval and Susanna album Meshes of Voice?
    September 12 01:21 AM
  • klap lol my apologies
    September 11 11:29 AM
  • klap one of my top 5 favorite albums of all time....or DFA1979.....hey 201 is a big number too mr.
    September 11 03:01 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges What ever happened to Irving Tan Zhi Mian?
    September 10 05:06 PM
  • klap haha no reviewing something else before that one. although i thought about it
    September 10 02:09 PM
  • Arcade gonna be reviewing the new U2 album?
    September 10 12:10 AM
  • Onirium Yeah their lyrics have never really been inspired or interesting, but if it's all on the same level than "Simple As That", well yeah, they must be "beyond abysmal" indeed. Anyway, I'll still definitely give it a try when it comes out. Out of curiosity, what's your favorite Pineapple Thief album?
    September 3 11:19 AM
  • Mad. Yeah The Pineapple Thief are one of my favourite bands haha. I'll review the album myself once I get my hands on it, will definitely have an opinion
    September 3 04:06 AM
  • Onirium Hey I saw your rating for Magnolia, any thoughts? The track they streamed was nothing really outstanding, and your rating kind of brought my hype down
    September 2 10:08 PM
  • Mad. s*** lol your rating's gone down dramatically. I get watcha mean, TPT have a tendency to write uninspired lyrics, though the ones on Little Man are amazing - it's about the singer's stillborn son
    September 2 04:51 PM
  • Mad. Thoughts on the new Pineapple Thief album?
    August 30 01:24 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges You gonna jam new Spoon and Owl John?
    August 7 10:31 AM
  • Arcade i think you hit the nail on the head surmising the BM rev a rant. tbh i thought with the lack of staff/contrib. review i might as well deliver something and i haven't seen too many critics with a negative opinion of it. cheers tho for the feedback =)

    March 16 01:50 PM
  • NocteDominum You mean good summary or bad summary lol? How are you Irving?
    December 20 03:52 PM
  • clercqie Any chance you are allowed / want to shed a light on the point system for the year-end rankings? My mathematics-loving self is intrigued. :]
    December 17 11:57 AM
  • Gewe *shows all-access card* =I
    December 15 10:20 PM
  • Electric City aw irv, it's been a year of moving on for me. you know you can find me on CMG, and I've put a couple pieces elsewhere
    December 6 12:35 AM
  • klap it's alright but i never got that much into it
    December 2 02:31 AM
  • klap HEY a lot of them were in top 50. and given the disparity in rankings this year i'd say 5 is pretty swell
    December 2 01:28 AM
  • klap haha aside from that. i think you are the staff member who has the most similar list to me tho, just in different places
    November 26 11:14 PM
  • klap don't change your list too much :0
    November 26 05:18 PM

    September 14 11:12 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Just wondered, have you heard dying fetus? :)
    September 14 11:05 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Hi, Do you like Metal? :)
    September 11 03:26 PM
  • Gewe Happy 3rd anniversary on Sputnik, Irving! Keep writing awesome :) xx
    September 11 09:32 AM
  • Brostep Haha I know :P funny thing is Dev even seems to accept "brostep" as legitimate, probably because it was created by "tr00 electronic fans" ad not a mass-market industry (like EDM, drumstep, and moombahcore). The whole thing is just a little bit silly really. BTW, got tickets to the Washed Out show! Gonna be so awesome
    August 23 02:49 PM
  • Brostep also lol at your mentioning of the hated "brostep" :P
    August 21 02:08 AM
  • Brostep nah, just got the cd for $10. might see him in september though, the lp's reminding me how much i love chillwave.
    August 21 02:07 AM
  • Brostep thanks for the fantastic washed out review man, ended up picking it up at a local cd store and I love it so far.

  • pribosse http://necrodogg.bandcamp.com/album/spontaneous-combustion
    July 12 10:56 PM
  • Crysis I'm still undecided on a rating but I thought it was good. Not their best but but probably somewhere in the 3.5 area. Check out Minas Morgul if you want to hear some more by the band.
    May 12 07:49 PM
  • Crysis Hahahaha yes and no. It is a s***ty rip because it was an early one but then again Summoning are a strange band in terms of production. The drums are programmed and the guitars always took a back seat to the keyboards, so some of that nastiness can be attributed to the quality of the rip but some of it is just how Summoning are. Have you heard anything else by them?
    May 11 08:00 PM
  • CK I like that your avatar is a cat and your profile picture is a mouse
    April 3 01:26 AM
  • klap hey man. in the blog box it's the button that looks like a reel of film. about right in the middle and if you hover over it it says "Insert/edit embedded media." You'll click it and a box will show up and that's where you'll paste the youtube url and then insert

  • SowingSeason I'm still alive. Clinging to my sput-life and fending off emeritization like a champ. How are you?
    March 19 08:35 PM
  • KjSwantko Sup, Irving? Out of sheer curiosity, how does the summary "not make sense?" Soilwork has been releasing nonsense albums for the last decade now and most people are aware of this, so to say "not only is there a faint pulse (i.e. they're not completely dead), but the proverbial heart is furiously pumping (i.e. they're alive
    March 3 12:00 PM
  • humblerodent Hey Irving,Think you could take a look at my other reviews now? I'd still love your feedback

    January 24 08:37 AM
  • klap lol i have had reviews mentioned on wikipedia but soundoffs are a new low for wiki editors
    January 23 11:15 PM
  • klap hahaha wait is one of my soundoffs really on wikipedia
    January 23 12:05 PM
  • klap lol what is that from??
    January 23 12:04 PM
  • Willie I've posted links to the two promos you wanted. They're on the second page of the promo area.
    January 22 09:31 AM
  • Aids haha it didn't cross my mind, and honestly I tried not to spend toooooo much time coming up with a witty post, I hope you can understand why
    January 21 12:27 AM
  • robin yeah ill listen give me a way to listen to it heart you
    January 11 10:15 PM
  • JazzHands333 Thanks, I appreciate it!
    January 11 05:16 PM
  • SowingSeason Yeah, I didn't like how I went from one of the most well liked users to one of the most hated staff with nothing changing besides my title. And yeah, we need to raise hell in the armistice thread!
    January 5 09:38 PM
  • Tyrael Hey man I'm sorry for my comments on your review didn't mean to target you in any way :/
    January 5 02:56 PM
  • Electric City if theres one thing i learned on the staff of sputnik its to not show butthurt it only makes the idiots stronger
    January 5 12:02 PM
  • SowingSeason So Irving how does it feel to have people s*** on your writing if for no other reason because you are staff now? :) in other words, I read your DRGN KING thread.
    January 5 10:16 AM
  • Nagrarok Dear Irving. Still around, still not as often as before. Happy New Year.
    January 1 04:32 PM
  • DaveyBoy Haha. You notice the weirdest things.

    December 14 03:28 PM
  • robin i still haven't listened to love this giant :x
    December 14 02:07 PM
  • NocteDominum Dude I miss my Irving posts.
    December 12 07:35 AM
  • NightmareCinema16 It was just as difficult for me as well. I had been innactive for a few months, so I had missed a lot of new LPs and EPs. I hadn't even heard any 2012 albums until late September, and it got very difficult because most of what I heard was average and not even up there. It will interesting to see what is number one, for sure.
    December 4 10:14 AM
  • NightmareCinema16 You recently said it was difficult making your list for the User's Best of 2012. True, right?
    December 3 10:56 PM
  • SowingSeason Hey bud! Things have been good and bad, but mostly really good. How about you?
    December 3 01:51 PM
  • SowingSeason Glad to hear things are going well! I found a girl too, we've been hanging out for five months now dating for two. Ive actually known her six years been chasing her at least half that time, so i'm finally happy in that regard...tell me about your girl!? Other than that i'm working all the time...i'm only a little excited with Taylor's new album it's not her usual stuff so i'm not sure how I feel yet...review should be coming soon.
    October 22 08:18 AM
  • SowingSeason Thanks for the kind words about the review. How have you been lately?
    October 11 06:08 AM
  • Gyromania dude, your rating for fragments really threw me. wtf?
    October 5 05:34 AM
  • Electric City fu[size=2]ck[/size]
    September 28 02:57 PM
  • ZackSh33 I feel like that's what I did, though...Oh well. I tried to inject a little flavor into it--I'm not sure why it came off as being that bad. If you look now the review that goes with the article is well written sure (I'd say about the same level as mine, to be honest), but I feel like the backlash against mine was harsher because I was one of the first.Again, thanks for the help. I'll be sure to keep in touch if I have any questions.
    September 19 08:37 PM
  • ZackSh33 It sucks though that a lot of people here just look at the review rating, or the band, and immeadiately neg. I feel like the writing itself was fairly cohesive, where as the main focus of the review itself may have not been quite up to par. I'll probably take a break from writing for a while to refocus my efforts so that next time I can come back and write a really good one. In terms of style, what works for you? I try to make my reviews really formal, otherwise I feel like they're contrived?
    September 19 12:48 PM
  • ZackSh33 Wow. I really appreciate all the work you put into giving me tips. This is a band that's been close to me for a while, so I kind of felt like I had to defend them in a way in order to justify my review. The little tidbits about the 21st Century Breakdown being in the 21st century was supposed to be a little humor, as well as most of the side comments about "Last of the American Girls." I guess they didn't come through that way. The review could def. use some tightening up looking back.
    September 19 12:43 PM
  • ZackSh33 Thanks for the comment. I felt like I needed to rush the review a bit because I knew a ton of people would be submitting. Hopefully, when I get more time, I'll be able to write a better one.Even though it was rushed, would you still say it was written well? It's hard to tell when there's so much hate on the band itself.
    September 19 01:34 AM
  • Aids a 1/5 for the first Mother Mother album? why? Polynesia and Dirty Town are two of their best songs.
    September 17 07:56 PM
  • clercqie Wow, they made you a Staff member??? Congratulations man, you definitely deserve it! Who else got promoted btw? I can't find it immediately.
    July 29 07:46 AM
  • ZedO oh btw, Search still rocks hard, and Siti Nurhaliza; she broke my heart:[
    July 28 09:37 AM
  • ZedO No, I'm not from Malaysia, but Indonesia (we are neighbor in real life, lol). Yea I actually have tried searching on web about M'sia indie, there's no significant information. And also I get few Malaysian friend here who introduced me into Zee Avi and Pop Shuvit (that 2-3 years ago). I even watched Avi performed live in Jakarta back late 2011...
    July 28 09:36 AM
  • ZedO Hi there. You are Malaysian, right, Irving? I've known that fact when I was reading your Zee Avi's review. Well, I'm curious to know whether you have any recommendation on good Malaysian indie bands/stuffs, just recs me some. I'm actually quite familiar with M'sia metal, but indie, oh so poor. I know we've never talked before, so just take this as "salam perkenalan" from me. Btw, congrats on the promotion, I've read about dozen of your prose lately, and yes, you truly deserve it man :D
    July 28 08:12 AM
  • Omaha :D nothing too special, man - just busy being more authoritative than usual. you know, the usual!
    July 21 02:12 AM
  • Omaha HEY, YA STAFFER! :]
    July 20 12:48 AM
  • Willie Cool. Glad to hear it. There should be two packages. Did they both make it?
    July 18 02:09 PM
  • Metalstyles haha, I will do my best dear Irving, i will do my best.
    July 18 12:10 PM
  • omnipanzer Gratz on your promo, it is well deserved sir.
    July 18 10:21 AM
  • macadoolahicky Congrats on the promotion!! It sucks though, I don't know why but I always mix you and Xenophanes up, and you BOTH got promoted so now I'm still going to get you two mixed up!!! D:
    July 17 10:09 PM
  • Jethro42 Cong/ats on the p/omotion, man. It's well dese/ved (some lette/s a/e missing, so//y)
    July 17 06:34 PM
  • robin a victory over my heart
    July 17 06:19 PM
  • Tyrael Hey man, I'm glad the mods listened when I told people that sputnik's nicest user Irving was also true staff material! Congrats man.
    July 17 05:18 PM
  • Metalstyles But, let's cut to the chase. I CAN take responsibility for the last.fm group and also be a leader type of guy, but if someone other really wants to be it, I'd say let 'em. I understand that other senior contributors like Balls, Rasp and Waior are either rather inactive or don't care enough, though, so yeah, if there is a need, I can take the responsibility on myself.
    July 17 02:26 PM
  • Metalstyles heya Irving, I'm doing pretty well tbh. It's summer, so I'm just trying to kick back and, well, chill. Been trying to make the time go by faster as I wait my lady's arrival from Hungary, where she has been over a month already and will still be for the next two weeks - I'm doing a horrible job getting my mind off her though haha. The hand is good for use already which is great. Been going to the gym a lot lately to restore some powa to it and to lose the weight I gained while I was injured.
    July 17 02:20 PM
  • breakingthefragile You can count on it man. I'm always gonna be open to help and suggestions from others no matter what my rank is. :D I plan on contributing more than I ever have now that I officially have the name for it lol. Once again, thanks for everything.
    July 17 02:11 PM
  • taylormemer Thank you dearly Irving. Your kind words inspire me, and also remind me to add some new additions to the Disney page.
    July 17 12:55 PM
  • Crysis that would rule hard m/m/m/m/
    July 17 12:49 PM
  • robin yes please. WELL DONE though seriously i love you
    July 17 12:45 PM
  • SowingSeason We all knew that you haven't been contributing as much, but we still wanted to bring you on board anyway. If anything, its a testament to your writing skills! Also, how pumped are you to have the classic trio of you me and xeno on staff? I foresee a lot of hand holding, and deviants wrath
    July 17 12:31 PM
  • Gyromania A testament to the excellence of your work, I say =] I myself have only put out about 5 reviews so far this year to be honest. I'm looking forward to working with you as well!
    July 17 12:22 PM
  • Gyromania =] Glad to be a part of the contrib club. And just as I join you, you get a promotion to staff. Why can't we ever be on the same platform?! lol all jokes aside, congrats dude - it's well earned.
    July 17 10:09 AM
  • Crysis Welcome to the fold man, good to see you on staff. Congratz!
    July 17 09:37 AM
  • MO whoa staff?! congrats you cute penguin you, i've always enjoyed your writing man
    July 17 09:07 AM
  • SowingSeason Just like I told xeno, this was a hard secret for me to keep but congrats on making it to the top!
    July 17 06:45 AM
  • breakingthefragile Congrats on making staff man. Like I've said a million times, I think your a great writer, surprised you didn't make staff sooner, also, thanks for criticism and feedback you've given me on my reviews, it's helped me get to this point and I'm grateful for that. :)
    July 17 06:37 AM

  • Willie That's it. I'm doing a ****in' track-by-track. We'll see who complains about not enough song samples now. ;)
    June 21 06:50 PM
  • Willie Oh yeah, and it's coming as two packages. The poster is in a tube and the record/CD are in another package. 10 to 14 days until it arrives.
    June 21 04:39 PM
  • Willie I sent it a few hours ago.
    June 21 03:50 PM
  • breakingthefragile I followed some of the advice you gave me for my latest review of the new Smashing Pumpkins album. Read it over if and when you have the time, I'd love to know what you think. :D
    June 21 03:19 AM
  • Willie I got your prize pack. Sending it tomorrow.
    June 20 08:12 PM
  • taylormemer Jamming The Great Gig in the Sky so hard right now. It's late, I'm dazed, over tired, in a trance and just getting smothered with its caramel goodness. **** I love this album and it's ****ing 40 years old and still jams better than everything else! Peace. I Just had to tell someone how I was feeling.
    June 19 02:17 PM
  • breakingthefragile Hey man, don't sweat it. As I said before, I don't take any offensive from the criticism I get. I'm always looking for suggestions on how to better my writing, and I'm happy to be getting it from professionals like yourself and Willie. I'm happy you guys are taking the time to analyse my review and give well thought out feedback. And thanks for the support comments as well, It feels good to hear people say I have potential, especially those that rank above me. :D
    June 18 05:16 PM
  • greg84 Hail to pool parties and 6 figures salaries. Thanks a bunch mate.
    June 12 06:13 AM
  • kingsoby1 no problem, just not good to have that be the first comment for staff reviews. that's also why we dont comment on our own reviews first as much since they're supposed to be "professional"
    June 8 12:14 PM
  • Xenophanes Sounds like a plan: ] I have gtalk as well. It's linked to my phone so it will look like I'm on 24/7, but I assure you I have a life outside of the internet haha
    May 25 01:11 PM
  • Aids Haha well at least they put up a fight against the number 1 seed, whereas we were embarrassed by the 8 seed (who, incidentally, have gone on to embarrass the entire western conference). Oh hockey. So are you ever coming back or are you settled into a career dealie in Malaysia? (ps what are those things like anyway?)
    May 24 03:37 PM
  • Omaha Thanks a ton for the kind words, friend. It's nice to find someone that really cares to help out. If I ever need help with any reviews, I'll be sure to let you know. And I'll definitely follow all your tips - already contributed a few news articles to the database! :]
    May 23 11:53 PM
  • Aids Wow that was out of nowhere. I am doing well man and honoured to be on your (hopefully short) list of people you sent that to haha. How are you these days? Do you miss Canada yet?
    May 23 04:15 PM
  • Xenophanes Ilu and miss you too Irving :[[[[[[[[[I miss those conversations :[[[[
    May 21 11:16 PM
  • Omaha Hey man, just wanted to say I've always enoyed your writing. I hope to see more of it as time passes, although I definitely understand that things keep us busy. I'm aspiring to eventually be a contributor if I can, and when I need help with my writing it always helps to read well-written reviews by people like yourself.
    May 21 10:49 AM
  • Metalstyles Haha, thank you for your enthusiastically positive comments, as always, dear Irving. The same applies to you (the being awesome part, and hopefully not the cast part lol) And fyi, it was a lot less painful than I imagined it'll be. I mean, I finished the game, despite it being painful...and we won haha ;). I actually thought I had only dislocated something. Only at the doctor's did I find out that I had torn ligaments.
    May 20 09:43 AM
  • Willie E-mail me your address exactly as it is supposed to look on the front of a package. WillieFisterbut at gmail dot com.
    May 16 07:09 AM
  • Willie I have no problem with sending it to you. Don't worry about it.

    May 15 10:31 AM
  • SowingSeason Hey buddy, email me your address to sowingsputnik@gmail.com so that we can send you the prize for the Keane contest. Yours might take longer though because trey will have to get it first then ship it (I read somewhere that he'd do that, but I'd better double check to be sure)
    May 14 12:34 PM
  • Tyrael Well no... I just assumed they had read it and thought it was s*** just like acad tbh... I asked Willie to comment on the quality of the review tho.
    May 9 03:24 PM
  • Tyrael Well I was trying to get my first feature with this review but that failed miserably :/
    May 9 03:01 PM
  • Tyrael Well color me surprised, thanks Irving. Acad had a lot of things to nitpick on though...
    May 9 01:48 PM
  • Tyrael Nah it's okay, the review sucks anyway
    May 9 07:15 AM
  • Tyrael could you offer some criticism please? http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/49536/Marina-and-The-Diamonds-Electra-Heart/

  • Tyrael Yea but wow this really shocked me... But I guess that's cause I actually like the guy. I'm also guilty of chanbashing etc...
    April 17 05:02 AM

  • Tyrael What I said was: I've been busy studying and doing social activism with the youth division of the belgian socialist party (which I'm obviously a part of)... Other than that I've had a massive writer's block which started when I realised that nobody actually cares whether I write or not... So yea, how have you been?

  • Voivod haha like that '70s-'80s show "Dr. Who".
    April 12 02:54 AM
  • Willie It's made. It's just that the forums have been down since Monday. When I'm not on my phone, I'm going to post it. So, 3.5 for Atoma. Go to the review and let me know what you thought.
    April 11 11:34 PM
  • Tyrael So it seems that your shoutbox ate my full post...
    April 11 08:30 AM
  • Voivod I'm no Doctor yet haha, I have published one paper, i need at least one to be eligible for PhD examination. I'm sending a second paper for evaluation these days and I have another on the works :-)

  • Voivod I'm a chemical engineer and I'm doing a PhD in materials science.

    April 10 09:02 PM
  • SowingSeason In time you'll learn, my dear Irving, it's us and them
    April 10 08:28 PM
  • Voivod Thanks for your post in the Municipal Waste thread. Usually I proofread a lot in order to eradicate run on complex sentences, but this time I was too tired to proofread. That's why I put the standard phrase about constructive criticism, as i also aim in getting proofed by site members.

  • Activista anti-MTV I noticed that you don't have a lot of album ratings. People always like to hear a respected contributor's take on things... especially if they are on the fence. I want to encourage you to rate some more albums, and do your soundoff thing as well. Peace, Activista
    April 9 02:10 AM
  • Tyrael Oh my god you are alive! How have you been?
    April 7 07:46 AM
  • SowingSeason And I'm glad you liked the song, I knew you would ;)
    April 5 07:10 AM
  • SowingSeason To be honest 2012 has been pretty rough - not much has stuck out as an AOTY contender. It could be Farewell Repiblic's debut, Of Monsters and Men's debut, or Killing Joke's 15th album...all released this year. But I'm fairly certain that none of them will finish the year in my top 5 if things pick up.
    April 5 07:10 AM
  • SowingSeason So I don't normally seek people out to give recs, but this is one that I think you'll really like. It's like the folk version of Armistice: Of Monsters and Men. Review is on the front page, if you want a taste this is one of their better songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghb6eDopW8I

  • Willie Just a promo, sorry.
    April 5 12:13 AM
  • Nagrarok I have actually been writing recently: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/48684/Genesis-The-Lamb-Lies-Down-On-Broadway/
    April 2 03:45 AM
  • SowingSeason Well jobs are important, I know because I have one. I just don't have a life outside of work right now so that makes it easy. I hope to one day spend LESS time on here lol
    April 1 10:32 PM

    January 26 12:54 PM
  • Deviant. Okay, but just know that it takes all of 2 seconds for me to go into the blog and change something, so it's no hassle if you want me to
