  • BlushfulHippocrene No problem at all. And I'll remember that one, thanks!
    January 31 04:01 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Well, it's clear it's something you've a passion for, so there's not much I can say but good luck. I hope someday you can actually support yourself with your writing, and I can't wait to see what you release next, let alone when you release that novel or anthology.
    January 29 10:50 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Yet this is something I find equally romantic and foreign to my own writing experience (with narrative, that is; I love expressing myself in other forms). As far as my adoration for reading, writing and literature goes, I can never seem to find that persistence. Call it lack of time, drive, passion, whatever. I'm hoping I can get back into this kind of writing when I get the time for it, but in the mean while, reading pieces such as yours excites me. I'm inspired, as lame as that sounds.
    January 29 10:41 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Infatuated with the idea that "the story reveals itself to you as you write". I find the notion of a perfect balance encouraging - calculated planning, profound and purposeful measure, all while being carried away with your own prose.

  • SmartWentCody Guero was the first Beck record I listened to, and I'm glad I did. That album is phenomenal.
    January 28 09:09 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene I'm looking forward to it man. I thought it was great, and I'm still impressed by how well it was executed. Excited to see you progress even further. Can I ask you: Do you feel as thought writing shorter stories is more rewarding than a longer process? I find myself getting fed up with attempts at novels, I feel so much more in control with short stories. That said, I know they're almost completely separate skills.

  • TheManMachine much appreciated man, thanks

  • plane You've nothing to apologize over. I'm mostly just lazy and distracted. Sputnik is not the best place for DMs.

  • Inscrutable, but I like the variety of language. It reads vulgar, which is sort of is; the poems take literal symbols in a given situation, abstracts them into being a metaphoric symbol, and then supplants them into an order that gives them a physical narrative. It's nonsense, but coded. Actually quite good, now that I write about it. I didn't much care for the notion but now that I apply it critically... there's really nothing language can't do except communicate purely.

  • Piglet yeah dude it's the bomb
    November 17 11:26 PM
  • Piglet i now realize just how much my message didn't make sense hahaah forgive me i was drunk
    November 16 02:31 AM
  • Piglet oh hahah nono i misspoke, i meant i just got everyone of those albums! because you recced them to me! The only album i had already was the breather resist one, but I hadn't listened to it properly either, and so yeah just sayin thanks because i now love asobi seksu, the evens, supersilent, amon duul! cheers
    November 16 02:30 AM
  • Piglet jus letting you kno i got every one of those albums you recced me (except ****in neon golden **** they took down all the rars sadface) and i'll listen to em more over the comin days and yeah ****in cheers i already love asobi seksu, the evens, supersilent, amon duul and breather resist
    November 15 04:53 AM
  • plane neat, thank you.
    November 13 12:34 PM
  • plane wow, thank you. that means quite a bit. i think the writing style came from wanting to convey more with less, which becomes about word choice and the intensity of such choices. i would love to read those poems. are you friends on fb with sputnikers?
    November 11 01:02 PM
  • plane whoops, forgot about you. Here's two off the top of my head: Alfred Tennyson - Mariana; Robert Browning - Porphyria's Lover.any reason you ask?

  • SachikoM I'm sorry for offending/enraging you. I didn't mean it, I was just having a bit of fun.
    September 5 04:27 AM
  • Jacquibim Nuh I've never been particularly interested, I've always been afraid I'd come across as really fluttery. Here's a DL for Twin Infinitives btw, hope it works
    August 21 12:55 AM
  • Jacquibim Cheers dude, I was being a little over-the-top on purpose, but I still meant everything I said, album is a mind**** and a half.

    February 4 10:50 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot i remember liking your 'music that's off the main road' list quite a bit... any chance of pumping a couple more of those out?
    February 4 10:45 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot oh hey you ended up reviewing the paper chase after all, nice nice

  • demigod! just wanna say, your Jane Doe soundoff is one of the most brilliant things on this site.
    August 28 10:42 PM
  • Maniac! Skype would make things easier as well!
    July 30 10:20 AM
  • Maniac! Do you have a facebook where we could talk about it more immediately?
    July 30 10:11 AM
  • Maniac! Hey there. I don't think we've talked much before, but I really like your reviews. I happen to run a website where people can sign up and blog about and review movies, music, games, tv, and literature. I was wondering if you'd be interested in a staff position there. Take a look and let me know what you think!
    July 28 11:04 PM
  • Omaha i assumed you were, what the hell. Okay, well nice to see you around again haha
    May 15 01:06 AM

    February 20 01:30 AM
  • silentpotato you probably just got higher when u did mushrooms. just wait till uve been REALLY high on both of them and also just wait until you have a bad mushroom trip.
    February 6 01:27 AM

    July 21 03:13 AM
  • silentpotato good idea actually i hardly review anything but when i do i do albums that dont have reviews and that definitely deserves one
    June 24 08:41 PM
  • Omaha They prefer the people applying to write consistently but you've written more reviews than some of the people applying already. If you do apply, I would say to cover a recent release to help your chances a little bit. And there's a thread in the Sputnik forum where one applies.
    June 24 09:38 AM
  • Omaha dude you should apply to be a contributor, your writing is really good and i bet that you would have a pretty good shot.
    June 23 12:10 PM
  • andcas that's awesome you recognize my profile picture.
    June 4 01:11 AM
  • silentpotato dude its ****in unreal eh?? one of my favorite hip hop albums ever alongside company flow who has el-p as well. I ****ing listen to Scream Phoenix and Pigeon compulsively like every ****ing day. check this out;
    May 14 10:49 PM
  • DaveyBoy Ooh, I just had a look at her setlist. It is a little short. And no Drumming Song. Also, she seems to only occasionally play Youve Got the Love, which really surprises me.
    May 6 06:49 PM
  • DaveyBoy I am seeing Flo and Blood Orange in a couple of weeks time. How was the show?
    May 3 08:06 PM
  • silentpotato i dont have a big problem with colorsjust alaska and silent circus
    May 2 10:33 PM
  • silentpotato i agree. however, sometimes the reason isn't very good. like with btbam, i think the reason for their fame is retardation of the masses haha
    May 2 01:42 AM
  • silentpotato basically means you have very sputniky taste haha. im surprised hes not my neighbor
    May 1 10:57 PM
  • silentpotato also lol potsytater is your neighbor

    May 1 09:54 PM
  • silentpotato yeah man dey good s*** nice sleepy sun and sigh 4's
    April 11 11:31 PM
  • silentpotato lol ya do it just for me
    March 26 09:04 PM
  • silentpotato i love it, i think the pacing is perfect, and i love the jazz interlude s***. i dunno, work with it a bit more. its a grower. i didnt love it till i was very familiar with it.
    March 26 08:52 PM
  • silentpotato the screams, the minimal use of very tasteful cleans, the atmosphere, the ****ing BASS holy, the production, the album art, the way the whole thing stitches itself into one song, how its not too long and not too short, how it reminds me of nadja boning jesu, the lyrics, everything man, it just hears so damn good
    March 26 07:51 PM
  • silentpotato i have complaints about your agape rating too ;]
    March 26 07:19 PM
  • silentpotato i haven't listened to it in 2 or 3 years tbh. i dno, mostly just a placeholder rating till i eventually listen to it again and see if i still think its classic
    March 26 07:03 PM
  • DarkNoctus yeah she did a great job! here's the post-rock, keep in mind this song is a demo and it was recorded late 2009 heh.
    March 20 11:15 PM
  • DarkNoctus by myself. the album is really coming to fruition, it's a black/doom/post-rock/ambient/drone song lasting 50 minutes. here's the album art if you're interested, it should be done in the summer. my artist did a great job despite her only hearing 20 minutes of the song. and i also have a post-rock project with an album out later this year. i have a demo up already, want to hear that?
    March 20 10:13 PM
  • DarkNoctus oh and not to mention i actually have an album coming out in the summer. how would you feel about a download promo before release date so you can review it on your channel?
    March 20 04:47 PM
  • DarkNoctus absolutely yeah, my taste was nowhere near as broad though, black metal was pretty much my be-all and end-all but i go in a LOT of different directions now, heh :]
    March 20 04:43 PM
  • DarkNoctus s*** yeah i don't even know why i ****ing bothered with that. i removed a lot of my old videos for that very reason, i sucked 4-6 years ago. :]
    March 19 11:36 PM
  • DarkNoctus yeah actually i think was around before that too, i'm surprised you even recognized my youtube username after all that time, heh! [:
    March 19 10:54 PM
  • DarkNoctus goodness it's almost surreal finding our you're antianitmetalclub, awesome :]

  • OnlyAnchors haha just ask him. yeah its just him doin his thang all psychadelic-like. im sure he'd be happy to give you the link
    February 24 01:26 AM
  • OnlyAnchors The ep i was talking about was the snake fetus ep homie. Its the heaviest, ass-kreiging, thrashin ep of all ****ing time. His sudatsuge ep is ok as well
    February 23 12:08 PM
  • butchinette Okay! I've heard an At the Drive-In song before: One Armed Scissor. It is amazing, of course! Getting the album right now, I'll let you know how much I like it in a couple of days. Thanks again dude! ;)
    February 22 11:34 PM
  • Divine Either works, haha
    February 7 09:22 PM
  • Divine Just make sure you have an idea set out before you after you go through that phase, otherwise, you will be lost as a sheep without its Shepherd.
    February 7 09:16 PM
  • Divine Figuring out my place in this world, lol. Just graduated from High School a few months ago and my perspective on everything is already totally different.
    February 7 09:02 PM
  • Divine So what's up, bro
    February 7 08:03 PM
  • Omaha Your gf is a Sputniker?! Did you bring her here? And you would obviously look just like him if you got a buzz-cut.
    February 6 11:19 PM
  • Omaha I'm doing well. I just realized I picture you as looking like Greg Puciato in real life, which would just be great
    February 6 07:53 PM
  • Tyrannic ohe noe sum1 on the internetz tinks im dum D:
    February 6 06:13 PM
  • Tyrannic lol not really, aren't they calling me an idiot in that thread? i think he was just trolling though, isn't it someone's alt? i realized that after everything was done.
    February 6 06:09 PM
  • Omaha How goes it, friend?!
    February 6 03:05 PM
  • silentpotato yeah i gotta check out more of their stuff tho thats all ive heard
    February 3 12:53 AM
  • silentpotato yee lifeforms is great, rated it 4
    February 2 01:14 AM
  • Crimson Death Actually, I really ended up liking Worship and Tribute. I like at least 1 track off Thursday's new album, I'll have to listen to the rest. I'll be sure to check out Ulcerate also, thanks.
    January 29 05:59 PM
  • Crimson Death About time! It's still a 5 for me, man I haven't really been on this site in ages, I've logged in a few times here and there and did nothing. Anything new come out that you think I should take a look at?
    January 23 01:27 AM
  • Omaha Hahaha, I thought of that one La Dispute song on the end of Wildlife when I posted that. Didn't know if it would be obvious though
    November 28 09:55 PM
  • Omaha You know it. Watch my word, we'll end up in the same nursing home, s***ting our beds in unison, and we'll be able to tell all the haters WE TOLD YOU SO
    November 28 11:13 AM
  • Omaha Ahh yes, how could I forget. Our humble beginnings
    November 27 11:12 PM
  • Omaha There we go! Weird, I think I've given you a shoutbox message before saying how much I love your Greg Puciato picture. Do you recall talking to someone about him pooping onstage? If so, that was me
    November 27 10:42 PM
  • Omaha You only chose one? You bastard! You were supposed to defy the rules and say all three!
    November 27 10:32 PM
  • Omaha Do you like cuddling, impregnating or pizza best? You can only choose one.
    November 27 10:26 PM
  • Omaha we are SO ****ING ADORABLE TOGETHER sweet baby jesus!
    November 27 04:44 PM
  • deathofasalesman yup yup haha. look up toy machine welcome to hell intro, i thought the animation was the coolest thing ever as a kid.

  • RoastbeefyOweefy commented!
    November 17 10:35 PM
  • rasputin not entirely sure, if you can't find them through google they're prob not on the internet. also i dont think the lyrics are actually about what you wanted (backstabbing friends etc.) but i thought the song could perhaps be interpreted that way. also because i was listening to the songwhen i looked at your list =P
    November 15 09:20 PM
  • Sleaper Was reading my lists i wrote ages ago right, and saw u mention Scale the Summit - Black Hills as one of the best songs of 2011. **** that is a correct statement. cheers for gettin me into em !
    November 15 04:28 AM
  • RidersOnTheStorm67 Listen to Opeth more
    November 6 01:13 AM
  • foxblood hm i thought Noisear - Subvert the Dominant Paradigm was good. check my grindcore list for a lot of good albums that are worth a listen
    November 2 02:40 PM
  • foxblood yup i've heard it, it's a pretty damn good album
    November 1 10:08 PM
  • foxblood haha thanks man i appreciate that. i dig your ratings/reviews as well
    November 1 07:56 PM
  • Goatlord Some of it. I like Botch. I guess they're more on the math-y end of the spectrum, though, but I like them. I like Converge's You Fail Me.
    October 14 01:48 PM
  • lancebramsay The album sounds a lot like something godspeed would make
    October 13 05:29 PM
  • Goatlord Thank you! I'm not a huge metalcore fan to be honest. I can respect what DEP is trying to do (or did), but their particular brand of music doesn't register with me.
    October 10 08:29 AM
  • ThirtySixChambers review the new primus
    October 4 11:56 PM
  • Omaha It's just a s***ty situation to be in... HUR HUR!
    October 2 11:51 PM
  • Omaha I think I heard that he shat in a bag, and threw it in the crowd... I dunno about you but it would seem detrimental to attend one of their concerts xP I love them to death, but not their waste really
    October 2 10:43 PM
  • Goatlord Send me five dollars american in a white envelope and I will tell you.
    September 29 12:40 PM
  • Omaha Well, he poops onstage... Blech.
    September 28 10:16 PM
  • Omaha Aw shucks! I also quite like your Greg Puciato picture; the man's a flippin' giant
    September 27 11:23 PM
  • twlichty nice to see your moving into some more dubstep territory!
    September 22 07:57 PM
  • twlichty btw, good call on your rating for the new ABR
    September 20 10:12 PM
  • twlichty Well thanks, it just sucks how some of the metalcore bands that are popular right now are giving the whole genre a bad name. There are way too many generic-warpedtour-breakdown metalcore bands around right now, but we all know least there are still some metalcore bands around that can do it right.
    September 20 10:11 PM
  • butchinette hey man! thanks a lot for rec'ing me that Ruiner album. it's really a great album and i love every song on it! it was really what i needed. thanks also for Have Heart and Dangers, they're great too!
    September 7 12:40 AM
  • fulgrim Yeah I saw your review. I thought it was really quite good, you got the whole bizarre-but-works feel of the album across really well.
    September 3 09:27 AM
  • Satellite anyone who gives the monitor anything lower than a 5 and complains about how long hampton roads is must be a gigantic **** GOOD DAY SIR
    September 1 11:02 PM
  • Satellite your titus soundoff ****ing sucks please die
    September 1 10:57 PM
  • loveisamixtape haha yeah man. they are great. jane doe never really connected with me as much as others, but i still dig it.
    August 30 04:21 PM
  • loveisamixtape seriously though dude, not trying to jump down your throat. i was just saying. completely agree with your rating of Controller, btw. haha.
    August 28 02:30 AM
  • FromDaHood Just so you know, I read your other reviews and they were all good. Maybe Dead Throne was just an off-game effort. I think we've all had those :)
    August 27 03:36 AM
  • Toadstool Greg is seriously THE man. I was gonna go to that show too but I was broke at the time and didn't want to pay 50$, tix prices were insane. And it sucks too cuz I tweeted Greg about hanging with them after the show and he said he was so down. ): lol
    August 27 01:44 AM
  • Toadstool Bro, very random, but I saw that you 5'd DEP's Calculating Infinity (couldn't agree more). I freaking hung out with them when I went to the NAMM show in January. I noticed the singer and went up to him while he was chilling at one of the booths and told him how awesome they were at Warped Tour, and he was thrilled so he introduced me to Tim and we all just walked around talking about random s***, looking at booths etc. Very good times (:
    August 27 12:15 AM
  • Toadstool I understand why you think that it's all good. Honestly, the whole "generic" metalcore thing is a guilty (but im not guilty about it, lol) pleasure of mine. It's just fun for me. And I'm proud of the band for progressing as much as they have.
    August 26 09:20 PM
  • Toadstool hey, it's all about opinion. AC/DC used many of the same riffs over and over and over, and look at their legacy...........not saying i like them, just saying rehashing riffs isn't a bad thing. It's about the entire package of a song.
    August 26 08:21 PM
  • Toadstool Compared to their first demo and album, yes it is.
    August 26 08:11 PM
  • Toadstool hey man, noticed how i said metalcore album of the year SO FAR. and it's not better than their early stuff, it's INSANELY better. not meaning to nag at you, just questioning why you don't like the album.
    August 26 07:52 PM
  • wyankeif1337 it was only based off a couple listens, i'll see how it grows on me. but at the moment i prefet Skinny Fists and Slow Riot.
    August 4 12:24 AM
  • Crimson Death You just listen to BBFIII on youtube. I kind of like screamo. I like Gospel, CTTS and Envy. I liked what I heard from Touche Amor, but I don't have any of their albums. I've actually got a question on the genre because I'm not well versed in it, what qualifies as just "emo", Is it the mainstream stuff? Because I thought the original "emo" was indeed "screamo/emotional hardcore". I like a blend of catchy clean vocals in aggressive music, but I don't like stuff like Hawthorne Heights.
    July 27 01:10 PM
  • sehguh I see you checked out Koenjihyakkei, haha!
    July 25 10:12 PM
  • Crimson Death Hey champ, how are you? I haven't been around lately, anything new that you recommend? Also, did you listen to Slow Riot yet?
    July 23 04:35 PM
  • TheSpirit just type in cogs and sprockets and pervert the church in google and it should come up on my blog
    July 13 02:22 AM
  • ZombicidalMan Dude, in case you want to download that Coilguns and Kunz album, I think this will work
    June 27 02:13 PM
  • ZombicidalMan Yeah, the ATD-I one was also great. As for the demos, they're pretty much the exact same songs, but each one has Brian (I think, anyways) give a little intro to them. 'This one is about... lepers.' Kind of adds that Botch charm, you know? Oh, and since you're a fan of Botch and DEP, you should check out my latest review :p
    June 17 01:20 AM
  • ZombicidalMan Yeah, it was easy to see you worked on it for a while. You nailed how I feel about the album honestly, you should review more albums (your old account reviews are also pretty solid). Oh, and the Botch demos are also pretty sweet.
    June 16 11:56 PM
  • ZombicidalMan Your Botch review was fantastic, man. Awesome job on it.
    June 16 11:43 PM
  • Enotron the riff from "c thomas howell as the soul man" is so nice, that entire album has crushing instrumental work
    June 16 02:56 PM
  • Enotron i'm sure they do, i wouldn't know i'm not too well versed in the genre, but listening to hardcore bands like Punch and then putting on Converge, i really just get the same type of energy and feel from it. i thought botch sounded more metalcoreish than converge, though based on your ratings you'd probably have a better understanding.
    June 16 02:47 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown Be proud man, be proud. Review kicks Ass.
    June 15 11:06 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown I will read it in a bit.
    June 15 09:54 PM
  • Enotron oh word lol thanks man. all the s*** i wrote around that period of time doesn't really make much sense, but i still agree with the sentiment expressed. at this point i just refer to bands like converge and botch as hardcore bands.
    June 15 08:30 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown is it something I will like?
    June 15 05:12 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown nice! Looking forward to it.
    June 15 04:28 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown when are you writing another review?
    June 15 10:05 AM
  • FearThyEvil Alright will do thanks for the recommendations.
    June 5 08:50 PM
  • FearThyEvil I never actually listened to post-rock before well beside Kayo Dot.
    June 5 08:46 PM
  • FearThyEvil I've only heard good things from them so I will listen to them this month sometimes soon.
    June 5 07:16 PM
  • FearThyEvil No worries you're not stalking but yeah I do want to give them a listen. I'll listen to them sometime this month without a doubt.
    June 3 09:55 AM
  • YUJOS I've just checked your list...This is not a list man...this is a ****ing encyclopedia!!!! Good work man!!!
    June 2 06:06 PM
  • YUJOS Ok man thank you for the recommendations!!! I have to check definitelly Botch sometime. I 've heard that they were the pionering band in the mathcore movement before it even started if i am correct
    June 1 02:07 PM
  • YUJOS Hi again! You are mentioning in your review for In Dreams "There were plenty of metalcore bands in the late 90s and early 2000s that were playing outside of the typically accepted comfort zones of metal and hardcore" Can you suggest me some of those bands or albums to check?
    May 31 12:26 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown Haha nice dude. I don't listen to them to much but you must have one Legit girlfriend if she was willing to buy you a metal shirt lol.

  • YUJOS Happened to read your review for In Dreams. Very good work mate.I really liked how you explained the whole Progressive "thing"
    May 30 06:53 PM
  • Crimson Death Let me know your reaction!

  • Crimson Death If you liked Moya that much, you will be absolutely blown away by BBFIII. I first listened to Moya, I played it over and over again. Took me a few days to finally get to BBFIII. And at first I thought it was just going to be a man talking...but when it reached the climax, it became my favorite song.

  • Crimson Death I keep comparing it in my head, my initial thought was the "odd" vocalist in both bands. Now I have a question for you, have you heard Slow Riot For Zero Kanada? I'm just curious because you have Skinny Fists and F#A# rated. Or maybe you don't rate EP's? In either case, I find that to be one of the most (if not the most) ambitious and inspiring piece of music I've heard.
    May 26 11:25 PM
  • Crimson Death I'm liking some of the lyrics, that's for sure. It's growing on me a little more as I keep throwing on some songs here and there.
    May 26 06:06 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown Haha its all good. None so vile is legit. I hope to purchase it soon. There are just so many cds to buy pretty quick and its hard to keep up
    May 25 09:10 PM
  • Crimson Death No, I understand, I'm the same way with music. It's probably because we're deprived of the opportunity to talk about it in person as much as we'd like to. Hence, why I'm here in the first place. I'm always up for recommendations and new perspectives. Helps me access music that I may not "get". You're not pestering me, and if I didn't like it I would tell you it wasn't for me.
    May 25 07:00 PM
  • Crimson Death Yeah, the really fast commentary he did was quite impressive. The riffs are unique, I won't discredit that. However it's usually the riff that grasps me, and makes me "feel" the music. I haven't really "felt" this...yet. The dissonance makes it a little harder for me to access, but I'm seeing strong potential in it. I think the right listen at the right time might set it off for me.
    May 25 06:03 PM
  • Crimson Death Well, I gave it a listen and I bumped it to a 3.5. Nothing clicked and left me with a "wow", but I found it really enjoyable. I find his strange tone to "work" at times, and other times it feels like it's overdone. But I have a feeling I'll enjoy it a little more over time, "after all..." is kind of stuck in my head, so I bet I'll get hooked eventually.
    May 25 04:32 PM
  • Crimson Death Yeah, I believe it. Relationship of Command went from a 2 to between 4.5-5 now. Same thing happened with Converge. I'm actually kind of digging it this time around, we'll see how it grows on me. Good call though.
    May 24 11:14 PM
  • Crimson Death I wasn't too fond of the vocalist. I've been meaning to give it another listen though. In fact I'll probably do it tonight, now that you reminded me.
    May 24 09:49 PM
  • AfterTheBreakdown I just started listening to them the other day lol. Good stuff

  • G3N3R1C thanks bro. yeah, i was actually gonna write a full review for it but then wondered if it really needed another 5 review on here lol.
    May 7 11:42 PM
  • derekkp I really wish I could give you some Coheed albums. By far one of my favorite bands. When you do happen to get a job or I can find a way to give you Coheed, DEFINITELY give them a listen
    May 2 01:18 AM
  • foreverendeared Cool, I'll check those out asap.
    April 29 12:54 AM
  • foreverendeared I think so far, Grouper's new album is my favorite of the year, but I'm really far behind in terms of music this year. Any recommendations for me?
    April 28 12:12 PM
  • derekkp hahaha thanks. Yep, can't really go wrong with prog. I notice you have no Coheed. Why is this?
    April 27 03:01 PM
  • foreverendeared But, we can be friends even though sputnik doesn't want us to be neighbors :] haha
    April 26 12:23 PM
  • foreverendeared Well, i just meant like the algorithm the website uses to determine how your musical neighbor is figured out doesn't seem to have much logic to it. I dunno, it sure baffles me though lol
    April 26 10:53 AM
  • foreverendeared Hmmm... I dunno haha. Maybe you just haven't rated enough albums. The musical neighbor thing is kind of a mystery to sputnik users anyway. There doesn't seem to be much sense involved in it.

  • Drunk Floyd rules.
    April 23 11:50 PM
  • JJwins haha thanks? how did you come to that conclusion.
    April 22 12:51 PM
  • ZombicidalMan He's easily one of my favorite vocalists of modern music, just a great range. In fact, I'm going to go listen to some DEP now.
    April 21 11:22 PM
  • TheAJMetal It is for me at this point. I like it a little more than ( ). :)And pretty good. How bout yourself?
    April 21 10:54 PM
  • ZombicidalMan Haha, hell yeah man, it's just powerful in ways unexplainable. Glad to see Greg still haunts your profile, too :p

    April 13 10:09 PM
  • feedhertothesharks you seem pretty down in that last video bro cheer up :)
    April 13 09:26 PM
  • trianglefuck Ahah, go ahead, do it. I'm sure it'll be rewarding. :)
    April 10 06:22 PM
  • trianglefuck Ahah, I usually get to read the lyrics, because there are two factors that I adore in the album: the fact that we don't understand almost anything of what he's saying and the wonderful poems Jacob delivered us with the album. With these two mixed, we can make our own interpretation of what he's really saying off the poems, contextualizing the message while maintaining the anonymousness of Jane. The interpretation still varies from person to person, hence its magic.
    April 10 11:38 AM
  • trianglefuck It's really hard for me to pick a second best album. I've only listened to Jane Doe, You Fail Me, No Heroes, PtES and Axe to Fall and out of these, I would probably choose You Fail Me. It has a spectacular dark atmosphere and a great message to apprehend. As for the other albums: I only like a few songs from No Heroes; Petitioning is a bit unvaried and Axe to Fall is their most straightforward, metalcore album that doesn't contain that "mysticism" revolving around its lyrics like Jane Doe has.
    April 9 06:30 AM
  • trianglefuck ahahah. and yeah, the fade out in the song really helps to shape the girl's figure
    April 8 12:55 PM
  • trianglefuck Ahah exactly, Jane Doe's title track is definitely one of the best, if not the best in the album. Those crushing drones in the end of the song are mind-blowing. Their repetitiveness and heaviness gives you the final push throughout all the chaos and ire of the whole journey. It's an unique experience and I'm glad there are people out there that can give value to the amazing work Converge managed to craft.
    April 7 06:45 PM
  • trianglefuck ahh, thanks a lot. it's wonderful to know that people feel the same way as I do when listening to that masterpiece
    April 7 03:12 PM
