  • Dewinged Man, you know what, just downloaded Nadia's latest yesterday! I wonder how I missed it during my intense 2017 adventure. Looks like a sweet jam.
    September 5 07:45 PM
  • Cygnatti I have but not in a very long time. Got a major nostalgia trip but couldnt explain why.
    September 4 02:03 PM
  • Cygnatti i heard the atari's cover of boys of summer and thought of u. it's soooo good tbh. ^_^ better than the original imo.

  • Conmaniac hey dude do you have a discord?? if so would you be interested in joining my server? it's just a bunch of cool sput users and writers!!
    August 31 02:00 PM
  • BlackwaterPork Cheers mate, I'll be sure to do these
    August 25 03:01 AM
  • BlackwaterPork Hey man, really liked your reviews on Falls of Rauros and The Lurking Fear. Are there any pointers you could give on how to improve my reviews?
    August 24 03:59 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot all yours, it didn't draw me in
    August 24 12:56 PM
  • Kleinerbaer Really have enjoyed your reviews and find them often on what I'm listening to. Thought I'd shoot a recommendation over to you. Forever Losing Sleep - I Lost Myself Again.
    August 17 10:14 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cheers. yeah haven't felt motivated to write lately so hopefully something formulates
    August 12 02:31 PM
  • manosg You rating for the new Accept cannot be more accurate ;)
    August 10 03:41 AM
  • manosg heh thanks dude! I write a few lines for each album I jam because I do not review as often as in the past so I try to contribute this way and maybe help some folks check an album or two based on the soundoff.
    August 9 02:05 AM
  • manosg Really? Still haven't checked it man. Real life finally caught up with me but I will come back with a vengeance haha!
    August 8 01:30 AM
  • Conmaniac read it and looks great man, stellar comeback review. and yeah ive been rec'd that before! I'll def have to listen now tho thanks dude (:
    July 31 12:14 PM
  • bnelso55 Oh yeah. I'm not sure there is another upcoming album that I am more excited about. Hopes are high to say the least.
    July 31 11:05 AM
  • bnelso55 Nice! I look forward to reading it. The tracks you mentioned are definite standouts for me, too, especially Lorn. Like you said, it seems like a grower. I'll need to listen through a few more times before establishing my opinion.
    July 28 10:07 AM
  • SowingSeason Thanks, and sorry to hear that. For us it was pretty early on which softens the blow...definitely could have been worse. I'm good though, and the future will hopefully hold some better luck.
    July 27 01:38 PM
  • Sevengill wickeeeeed hope you enjoy it
    July 26 03:45 PM
  • bnelso55 I forgot about that! I'm checking it out right now. It's quite a change of direction. I like it so far, though.
    July 26 02:55 PM
  • manosg Sweet, hope you enjoy my man.
    July 26 02:22 PM
  • Sevengill Dz÷-nga, album is The Sachem's Tales
    July 26 12:06 PM
  • manosg Jammed it only once but enjoyed it a lot. Thanks for reminding me, I really need to recheck and rate! If you're in the mood for some more bm, feel free to check Highland - Loyal to the Nightsky. These guys really know how to play.
    July 25 03:42 PM
  • Sevengill and idk if you've seen me peddling my band about, but it is also foresty ABM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUqSlZunP9c
    July 25 02:14 PM
  • manosg Welcome back bud.
    July 23 10:02 AM
  • Jom You just let me know if I need to flip a switch is all!
    July 20 02:08 PM
  • Conmaniac ayyy glad ya dug it as much as me! and idk November but I'll peep em now and let ya know what I think
    July 20 10:27 AM
  • Conmaniac hell yeah dude. goes from standard emo to shoegaze to even some noise rock/post hardcore. very impressed
    July 19 04:14 PM
  • Rowan5215 I only know them through the Darcys covering their Aja album tbh but that one was pretty fantastic. will investigate
    July 19 10:37 AM
  • Conmaniac if you havent already heard their song Space Jam II then check that as well because it's an emo revival classic
    July 18 02:17 PM
  • Conmaniac hell yeah my man! if ya want a quick rec the new Skull Kid is pretty dope. some shoegazey emo stuff. but yeah thanks for the kind words ill try to keep it up (:
    July 18 01:12 PM
  • Conmaniac dude what you're emeritus?? love your reviews and just you as a user on here man. would love to see more Atari reviews but I also understand life getting in the way and s***. hopefully I'll still see you around tho and congrats on being considered one of the "greats" on here!!
    July 17 01:11 PM
  • hogan900 Your reviews were awesome man, hope you can find time to come back at some point. Thanks for inspiring me to write on this site in the first place, hope everything is going well for you man.
    July 16 02:26 PM
  • manosg Thanks dude. Just saw the emeritus tag. Really hope you find you groove back my man.
    July 8 02:58 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Just noticed the Emeritus on your name, mate, had no idea. Have loved your reviews, so hope to see some more in the future. Congrats on the tag, though, for what it's worth.
    July 8 10:11 AM
  • Jom Sorry, the 'Emeritize' feature is broken. Just kidding - thanks for all you do and glad that you'll be sticking around!
    June 27 04:03 PM
  • SowingSeason Yeah I listened to it twice full through this morning, and I'm pretty let down. It's not that it's bad or anything, it just lacks something. Every song feels like the most middle-of-the-road version of Morby, and not once did I light up like I did when the jazz section came in on "Destroyer." It's just kinda plain old Kevin Morby doin' his thang, which is good but not amazing.
    June 19 11:30 AM
  • SowingSeason How does the new Kevin Morby stack up against Singing Saw? Gonna listen when I have time this week.
    June 18 04:40 PM
  • manosg In addition, this is one of the rainiest summers that I can remember so even if I had some veggies in my garden the weather wouldn't help at all. So at least this is some type of comfort haha.
    June 18 03:10 AM
  • manosg That's awesome, man! I tried to grow strawberries once but with very limited success. I hope you manage to grow great strawberries because I've heard that they're infinitely better than the ones we buy at the market. This year I didn't plant anything because of job obligations. For the last 10-11 months, I've been having more and more work which is awesome but leaves me with almost no personal time.
    June 18 03:08 AM
  • Cygnatti i'm doing pretty alright. things are certain much better but also a lot of things are up in the air and i hate that. ugh. so tired but i know i just gotta suck it up and keep going. regardless, i hope you're doing well, dude. :]
    June 18 01:03 AM
  • Astral Abortis it's been a long while since i listened to any flogging molly, don't know if i'd be as fond of them now as i was ten years ago
    June 8 05:10 AM
  • klap thanks buddy. hoping to get back on the grind in the next couple weeks
    June 7 11:57 PM
  • Conmaniac free throw review is up! (:
    June 7 02:35 PM
  • Conmaniac yeah ik...been putting it off hard. i'll try to do it tomorrow but we will see
    June 6 11:57 PM
  • FreddieDelaney31 Yeah the lyrics are unbelievable on the new one, and they're incredibly vivid and personal. Haha he's certainly a better reviewer than I but I'm definitely planning on dropping a write-up for it
    June 6 12:59 PM
  • FreddieDelaney31 Was definitely planning on it haha, it just blew my mind instantly. Excited to see what ya think of it
    June 6 02:53 AM
  • klap damn it's out already? been so out of it
    June 6 01:09 AM
  • Jom I think what helped me was playing Rayman in between takes. It helped me "re-learn" the physics engine for DKTF and it's probably in my Top 5 Wii U games.
    June 4 08:04 PM
  • Jom DKTF was so incredibly frustrating for me playing co-op, so I put it down and never went back to it. After beating a handful of games in the interim, I decided to give it another go, and it was so smooth. I love the music levels and the bosses for sure. The physics engine took some getting used to, but then it was muscle memory from there on out. I also beat Ganon today. I basically cheesed my way through it given how strong Link was, but it was still a cool fight.
    June 4 12:19 AM
  • Toondude10 You know Flogging Molly actually had a show around my area last week. I would've gone, but I had work.
    June 3 07:40 PM
  • Toondude10 yeah I enjoyed it a lot too. Very refreshing album for them imo.
    June 2 02:54 PM
  • Jom I haven't beaten it yet -- been a bit busy! I did complete the four Divine Beasts and did find all 120 shrines, though, so it seems like my next step is to finally rush Calamity Ganon. I already looted the castle/got the Hylian Shield and all that good stuff; I'm just concerned that there's going to be nothing for me to do until the DLC. No way in hell am I going to do the Korok seed fetch quest! DKTF is one of my favorite games on the console! Glad you like it!
    June 2 12:47 PM
  • Satellite Haha nice. Have you heard any of the Lagwagon box set extras? Can't rec that s*** strongly enough.
    May 25 10:29 PM
  • theacademy im assuming you got all the usual suspects but uhh some random favs missing from your ratings - a wilhelm scream (all of it but especially career sui), dillinger four, unwritten law (mourning earlier), the living end (modern artillery earlier), midtown, home grown (kings of pop)
    May 25 03:09 PM
  • Conmaniac ofc man I getcha and feel free to shoutbox me anytime (:
    May 25 01:57 PM
  • Conmaniac dang im really sorry to hear that man. life sucks sometimes but im sure you'll end up ok (:and yeah you should check the album I just posted a review for! pretty intense stuff but really good (emo/screamo/post hardcore)if ya want more subdued/happier sounding stuff check Dolly Spartans' EP out! really fun indie rock
    May 25 12:35 PM
  • theacademy love the recent ratings buddy... altho if the omission of life on a plate and for monkeys is bc you havent listened to them yet, i envy you--- enjoy, those are my favs
    May 25 01:07 AM
  • SowingSeason didn't know there was one lol. IMO they haven't been good since Let Love In (Something For The Rest of Us was OK too I guess)
    May 12 06:03 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Going to review that Woljager real soon. I've started it a few times, but something kept getting in the way. Amazing album, though. :P
    April 26 10:16 PM
  • Satellite hell yeah man. have you read their book yet?
    April 19 11:14 AM
  • kascetcadettt here's a thread where you can discuss how fantastic it is to be a part of this moment: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=174557 \\\ don't be scared to share the news with other guys in case i missed someone out and keep shining in the light of this beautiful rock n roll fireplate, god bless, hasanmedia represent
    April 19 04:51 AM
  • kascetcadettt sieg hi it's-a me smooth brotha from the umpteenth block taggin' em trainz comin' from your favorite station, word on the street is (artuma is gay) my new album came out recently and if that's the last thing i ever do let it be, leavin' the link in your hands my man: http://poleyounger.bandcamp.com/album/go-daylight \\\ feel FREE to 1 it if u didn't like my agressive self promotion campaign, feel FREE to thank me if this album saved your life
    April 19 04:51 AM
  • Trebor. I'm working on it yeah. Life's been kicking my ass lately. If another staffer wants to throw up a review that's cool with me
    April 12 08:29 PM
  • Toondude10 will keep them in mind!
    April 8 07:41 AM
  • Toondude10 their last few released weren't really hyped imo
    April 7 08:07 PM
  • Toondude10 by the way, are you planning on listening to the new Ulver album?
    April 7 07:06 PM
  • Rowan5215 Not saying it's any kind of perfect record but goddamn is it the soundtrack for my life rn
    April 7 06:32 PM
  • Toondude10 I liked both of the songs tbh. I do think their more fun material is behind them for the most part so it'll be interesting to see what they'll come up with on this album.
    April 7 06:13 PM
  • Toondude10 YEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/life-is-good/id1221021080?app=itunes
    April 7 11:08 AM
  • klap Thanks dude ya I'll probs give it a whirl. Highly recommend seeing her live she was legit. And tickets are still cheap haha
    April 6 12:20 PM
  • Xenophanes Yeah a month later I'm still playing almost every day. Trying to get all of the shrines before I tackle the last beast.
    April 6 08:05 AM
  • Xenophanes Saw your post about BotW and yeah it's legit.
    April 5 08:02 PM
  • klap I knew about the Morby, did not know about the thief. Makes sense tho they played a ton of new stuff when I saw them last month
    April 5 06:25 PM
  • SowingSeason Yeah it didn't do much for me either. Really hoping he didn't just capture lightning in a bottle with Singing Saw. As for a new album already, I'm holding out hope but can't help feeling it's going to be a little rushed.
    April 5 11:58 AM
  • bnelso55 Hello! Just stopping by to say that I thought your review of the latest Fall of Rauros record was top notch. I really enjoyed the read.
    April 4 02:15 PM
  • Jom Happy to help! I can relate to being short on sleep. Hope you enjoyed the songs! By the way: 3 divine beasts and 60 shrines down. Sort of lost my spark when I saw that those motherflippin' Korok seeds count towards your completion percentage, but I'm still enjoying the game a lot.
    April 2 04:20 PM
  • Hawks Will check both for sure bro.
    March 26 11:10 PM
  • Trebor. I tried to my dude but I couldn't find a stream and the download site I found kept trying to give me malware
    March 25 03:03 PM
  • Calc what have you been listening to lately?
    March 24 07:09 PM
  • Calc i didn't want to disappoint you lol, you were exactly right though the sweeping guitar play was the best part
    March 24 06:10 PM
  • Trebor. Yeah I mean it's not nearly as good as all the albums it references
    March 22 01:40 PM
  • Calc I'm gonna listen I'm gonna listen lol. I have a short day tomorrow so after I get home I'm veggin and listening to it. don't let me down man lol
    March 22 05:26 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot the promo thread but aside from that you can just message the PR people of the label. idk what label FoR are on but I'm sure there's a website for it with contact info
    March 20 05:10 PM
  • Trebor. I know, I just put a lot of pressure on myself
    March 17 03:16 PM
  • Trebor. I just wish it leaked earlier cuz now I have to rush it
    March 17 01:21 PM
  • TheSpirit It's so crazy you mentioned them, because I listened to them for the first time in forever the other day. I didn't even know they were coming out with anything new, but I'm listening now and digging it so far!
    March 17 01:09 AM
  • JamieTwort Cool, look forward to seeing it.
    March 16 05:00 PM
  • Conmaniac checked a couple songs by Del Paxton. they seem really cool but reallllly stereotypical 2012 emo rev stuff aha. will listen to the whole thing soon tho
    March 15 03:39 PM
  • Conmaniac yoo thanks dude! will check soon your recs have been on point recently
    March 14 03:56 PM
  • Arcade haven't reached any of the main dungeons yet though so i don't know how any of that will play out. the trials though are a bit too lowkey for my taste and are initially rather obvious or flat-out frustrating.
    March 12 06:10 AM
  • Arcade played about 5 hours now and i'm blown away by the procedural rhetoric and scope of it all. definitely the Zelda game i've wanted to play since forever. still, feels a bit slow-paced and the open-endedness coupled with the kinda plodding pace and absence of action is a bit.. boring for lack of a better word. also the framerate drop is irritating af. so far tho i'm definitely enjoying this at least at least as much as Ocarina of Time or A Link to the Past
    March 12 06:09 AM
  • evilford Whoa that sounds pretty sweet man, good for you!
    March 10 12:26 PM
  • evilford hah thanks man, stuff's pretty good, got a great gf who I plan on making my wife someday so that's cool, my kids are good (albeit little terrors), just gotta find a job and then I'm set. how about u man?
    March 9 01:07 PM
  • Arcade probably will pick it up tomorrow, am super excited- where would you rank it in the scheme of the other games so far?
    March 6 12:52 AM
  • Jom Didn't get a chance to play on Friday so I started yesterday. Stopped at the Tech Lab. The trials are pretty cool. I like how they're connected to heart pieces or stamina. The storyline is pretty great - I think it's very creative and has a logical place in the timeline. I've done a good job so far in avoiding spoilers, so we'll see how it goes. I really like how crisp it looks on the Wii U -- I haven't any frame rate drops except in a big battle (and even then, I just pretend I'm in the Matrix)
    March 5 12:40 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Cheers mate. If I can find out as much about the concept as possible, I'll definitely discuss that since it sounds interesting. That said, the album's interesting enough on it's own, so I'm sure it'll work out. :]
    March 1 08:21 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene I got that Woljager album. It's going to be challenging, but I'm loving the album so far, so thanks! Do you happen to know if there are any translations of the album/screenplay or anything? I'll do some research later, of course, just wondering. Cheers mate. :]
    March 1 03:29 AM
  • danielcardoso Big thanks man, excited :]
    February 28 10:59 AM
  • Rowan5215 oh hah I thought that was what you were referring to originally. I don't mind Lucy's verses but the chorus is truly ear-splitting in the most unpleasant way. plus there's a severe deficiency of Harrison jams, imo
    February 28 01:01 AM
  • Rowan5215 lol fair enough, I just have an obsession re-ordering tracklists as you probably know and Sgt Peppers with its like three amazing tracks and three I absolutely hate seemed like a prime candidate. I'm surprised no-one's even called me out on removing Lucy in the Sky from it!
    February 27 09:29 PM
  • Conmaniac hey thanks a bunch Atari I appreciate it man. hopefully ill shed some light on some cool emo bands for ya in the next couple of weeks. also youve introduced me to a lot of cool stuff yourself!
    February 27 09:21 PM
  • Rowan5215 Ha I promise not to profane the sacred track listing which doesn't even have Strawberry Fields Forever on it more than I have to!
    February 27 05:41 PM
  • manosg oh man that sucks. Yeah this year I plan on planting some stuff too as I didn't last year because of various reasons. What are you going to plant?
    February 27 03:31 PM
  • Gameofmetal I appreciate that and I definitely am. Maybe a little too much someetimes lol
    February 27 01:52 PM
  • manosg Thanks man. Really glad to be able to rate with increments haha. How's everything?
    February 27 01:00 PM
  • Calc oh s*** lol
    February 27 11:07 AM
  • Trebor. I'll be sure to check them out, thanks Atari
    February 22 04:15 PM
  • SnakeDelilah not sure, I'll ask them tho
    February 21 07:35 PM
  • Artuma of course i have time for your recs :] album looks like a hit-or-miss kinda one for me but i hope it's a hit
    February 21 02:00 AM
  • SnakeDelilah right back at ya: holdoncaulfield.bandcamp.com
    February 20 11:04 PM
  • SnakeDelilah I'll check them out thx
    February 20 10:27 PM
  • Calc listening to it right now, and I got it in yestaday
    February 20 04:19 PM
  • Jom Now that I think about it, it might be worthwhile to go for the Wolf amiibo because it is a complementary piece of BotW since it can be your companion. The price is a little higher than normal for amiibo ($15) but could be worth it. What do you think about the Expansion Pack? I was a little turned off by the fact that they announced it before launch (why not just have it in the game outright?!) but I understand that it's the way of the biz lately.
    February 19 10:27 PM
  • zaruyache pfff I don't write nearly frequently enough and the pay's s*** and too much anxiety :|
    February 19 09:10 PM
  • theacademy sorry (im in japan!)... i love it!
    February 19 09:16 AM
  • Arcade thanks man, excited to join the team :)
    February 17 06:53 PM
  • Trebor. Thanks man, I'm excited. Yeah I've been listening to nothing but Smith Street/Wil Wagner lately
    February 17 06:50 PM
  • SowingSeason Thanks for sharing Synesthesia. That is now in my top 10 McMahon tracks...just so uplifting for some reason. Can't get enough of it gahhh.
    February 16 09:51 AM
  • Jom Oh, yeah, definitely heard it when he shared it a couple weeks back. Thanks! If you can find the Wolf amiibo, it's a bonus, but it's basically a gauntlet of enemies for (I think) 40 floors. You only have a certain number of hearts as well. I heard that if you use a separate amiibo you can get your hearts replenished once during the trial, but what's the challenge in that?
    February 15 12:52 PM
  • Calc =)
    February 15 03:13 AM
  • Calc probably, I'm getting back into it now that life has settled down for now
    February 14 07:57 PM
  • Jom Did the same thing you did. The first round of Switch releases aren't that interesting to me to warrant paying an upcharge through eBay. The graphics between the two are supposedly negligible anyway (and I'd rather play the game and then try out the Switch version later). Vacation days are for sure, too, ha! I still didn't beat the Cave of Shadows, so I might give that another go later. Currently replaying Majora.
    February 13 01:29 PM
  • Jom Did you pre-order a Switch or are you going to just roll with the Wii U version of the game? 0:)
    February 13 12:34 PM
  • SowingSeason Yeah man I really enjoyed it, but I thought the singles were some of the strongest tracks :/ let me know what you end up thinking
    February 10 01:03 PM
  • collynas441 Ok.) Then, what about Meat Wave - ?The Incessant??)
    February 9 03:24 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot a bit of a busy couple months. most of what i've been checking has been either techno or musique concrete, but not much in the way of decent folk. the new max richter (ambient / modern classical) has gotten some love. i'll probably check new Michael Chapman (folk) as well
    February 9 01:24 PM
  • collynas441 Hi! Would you like to review the new The Menzingers record?)
    February 9 05:37 AM
  • Trebor. Thank you sir. It was really hard to write, I scrapped the original intro paragraph I had
    February 5 01:42 PM
  • Trebor. Thanks buud
    February 1 04:40 PM
  • Trebor. Yes. I've been doing everything I can to listen to it enough and have a review up on the 3rd
    February 1 02:06 PM
  • JamieTwort Yeah I've heard Green Plastic. I liked it but definitely not as much as Precious Systems.
    January 7 05:46 AM
  • JamieTwort I would have liked to have got around to reviewing it last year but I wasn't very active for much of the year. It could definitely use a review so maybe I'll get to it at some point as I plan to make a return to reviewing this year.
    January 6 05:12 PM
  • JamieTwort http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=172183 :]
    December 30 03:23 PM
  • Hawks I've had a few reviews in mind and that was one of them haha. Gonna have to listen a little more though.
    December 29 11:54 PM
  • Hawks Damn bro, that Woljager album is shaping up to be one of the best I've heard this year. Glad you put it on your list or I def would've never heard of it haha.
    December 26 11:09 PM
  • Metalstyles Thanks a ton Atari, I'll be glad to cover it :)
    December 18 06:57 PM
  • collynas441 Hi! How are you? I just want to say one thing to you. I really miss your reviews. ;(
    December 18 05:19 AM
  • loveisamixtape alasfarewell.bandcamp.com ur good! id my shout bc i made a list, and thend the list. these songs are random af
    December 16 07:58 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hopefully it sneaks its way onto our list
    December 14 04:42 PM
  • Conmaniac thanks I'll give it a go!

  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I think it's still open until Nick posts the list in olympus
    December 14 02:48 PM
  • manosg haha there are a few albums that I jam this time of the year but nothing beats Bing Crosby. The fact that it reminds me National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation because a lot of the tracks are included in the movie is a huge plus ;)
    December 12 03:54 PM
  • manosg Absolutely. I can't believe how it doesn't have more ratings. Easily my favorite christmas album.
    December 12 09:00 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot don't forget to pop into olympus and submit your list so we can both rep sarah neufeld : ]
    December 8 08:56 PM
  • DaveyBoy I know what you mean man. All you can do is go by your ratings then. Then for tie breakers on LPs that rate the same, I tend to go for which I enjoy the most, which is indeed the tricky part.
    December 7 02:47 AM
  • DaveyBoy Belated thanks for your PUP reco and Trophy Eyes review. Both will make my top 6 of the year. Tiny Moving Parts should sneak into top 25 as well. Youre a good judge.
    December 2 06:43 PM
  • Rowan5215 I can't remember if it was you or someone else nagging me about it last year... but I finally did that review for Dan Andriano's second solo album! check it
    November 12 01:16 AM
  • cryptside hey buddy, how goes it?
    November 11 11:36 PM
  • sixdegrees sweet, gonna check both. Fifth Dimension especially sounds like something i'd be into going by the review.
    November 10 08:24 PM
  • danielcardoso ahah ya i did. and i'll def try have this versatility in the future. big thanks man.
    November 5 03:51 AM
  • danielcardoso i truly appreciate you taking the time and concern man. and many thanks for the kind words too. but yes, i have sent sowing a shout. i gave it some thought and really think this is the best decision.
    November 4 08:32 PM
  • danielcardoso i think i'm gonna save just 3 of em actually. thing is i can't back up a big chunk of what i said in those reviews, since my opinion on a fair bunch of those records has changed considerably in a short span of time. so, added to the fact that i sort of hate how they're written, i don't see the point in keeping them :]
    November 4 12:37 PM
  • danielcardoso i'll try to salvage some reviews that are the only ones for the respective album to salvage the threads tho, if i think they're decent enough.
    November 4 10:34 AM
  • danielcardoso ah man, as i told sowing i just don't think the majority of them is really well written at all. most of that stuff, save for a couple of exceptions (virgin killer probably being one of em :]), hardly speaks to me musically anymore, and it just overall bugs me that i have such a high review count and 70% of em fall in that category. i've given this some thought and i really think this is what i want to do, i want a bit of a cleaner sheet to continue contributing to the site in a better way.
    November 4 10:34 AM
  • SowingSeason Check out: All Get Out - Nobody Likes a Quitter. Honestly a late top 10 album consideration for me. A lot like Manchester Orchestra and practically as good.
    November 3 09:03 PM
  • Ecnalzen No problem, hope you like them. I have been listening to that Trophy Eyes album you reviewed not too long ago, and I like what I have heard so far.
    November 3 07:32 PM
  • Ecnalzen Ever heard Like Pacific? Pretty good pop punk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrIE4XuzjS8
    November 2 06:44 PM
  • collynas441 I STONGLY recommend you to listen the Utada Hikaru album. It's flawless, and probably one of my favourite albums of 2016!!
    November 2 01:29 PM
  • danielcardoso accurate megadeth and regina ratings dude ahah. tidal is still on the fence between 3.7 and 3.8 for me but i'm leaving at a 4 for now.
    October 31 07:52 AM
  • loveisamixtape never saw your shout oops lol but no not too harsh at all. album was extremely disappointing even though i'm hopeful that it clicks at some point in the future
    October 31 05:00 AM
  • theacademy honestly never listened to her in the past... will def investigate... thx for the rec, as always
    October 29 04:55 PM
  • collynas441 It's the new Kimbra song called Sweet Relief.)
    October 22 06:17 AM
  • collynas441 Hi! How are you?) What do you plan the review next? Jimmy Eat World or Jeff Rosenstock?)
    October 21 12:43 PM
  • danielcardoso thanks man, that honestly means a lot, i appreciate it :]
    October 20 05:09 PM
  • collynas441 OMG!!! Just listen this!!!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSzBG8awAW0
    October 20 04:02 PM
  • danielcardoso hey thanks for your feedback man! yea 9 of my 11 reviews this year have been 2016 releases so i'm hoping that's a good ratio, and i'm gonna try to get something done for about 3 or 4 more before january, maybe more if it pops my eye.
    October 20 01:06 PM
  • danielcardoso hi man, hope all is well! honest question dude, do you think i'd have a good chance if i applied to a contributor spot next february? i hit a slump for 6 months, but i've trying to make up for it lately and luckily i already had more than a handful of reviews by march. tell me what you think please :]
    October 19 08:04 AM
  • Conmaniac hey cool thanks man. ill add it to my list and check asap!
    October 15 03:52 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot would I if I didn't like her last LP?
    October 13 03:29 PM
  • SowingSeason At least I'm at the point where I can wipe my own ratings...I may do that just for a fresh start, go back to .5 increments, and rate things as the description states (poor, good, great etc)...I got into this phase of metacritic thinking, where everything is on a 0-100 scale so if I think something is actually "good" I give it like a 3.8 or something (76) as opposed to a 3, which shows up as a yellow "mixed" rating of 60 which just doesn't feel right.
    October 13 02:28 PM
  • SowingSeason Nah I bumped it up because I can't make up my damn mind. It may yet go up or back down. My indecisiveness with ratings is maddening to me because I feel like the scores basically don't count until the end of the year once I've submitted my official ranking
    October 13 11:44 AM
  • SowingSeason my ratings are a joke I need to go back to .5 increments because I don't think my mind can handle that much freedom
    October 13 08:12 AM
  • collynas441 Dear Atari, thank you for the negative review. XD Very good reading.) Now, waiting for the Trophy Wife.))
    October 11 03:03 PM
  • DaveyQ Loving the Olsen review, and the Big Thief review... I totally agree but as for myself rating Big Thief I seriously have no clue. I liked it but at the same time I'm confused as to what I truly feel. I'd lean towards a 3.5 - 4. It had its moments. I need to read that Spektor review though I haven't gotten into her and yet I've heard good things.
    October 11 08:29 AM
  • collynas441 Hi! It's me again! Would you like to check out and probably review the new Balance and Composure album?)
    October 10 04:09 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 haha yeah, I've done a few since I've been on here. I have, but do you think I'm good enough to be one?
    October 10 02:04 AM
  • DaveyQ Love some of your folk reviews! I have a question though, Im new and I need to know how one measures objectivity? By definition measuring the rating of a creative art is impossible...
    October 9 07:39 AM
  • Evreaia Yeah I've been trying to do that for a long time haha, but I keep forgetting it. Will do in the weekend!
    October 7 06:11 AM
  • SowingSeason Seeing as I got around to your message late, I'll just reply anyway and let you know the review is great!
    October 5 03:17 PM
  • FreddieDelaney31 i mean tbh can anyone?
    October 5 07:44 AM
  • klap hey sry man friend of mine has been visiting from Australia and i haven't given it the time it deserves. i've given it a few spins in the car tho and it's alright. tbh regina hasn't done much for me since Far, although this one has a few classics. feel free to give it a shot, it was yours to begin with!
    October 3 06:18 PM
  • SowingSeason u should review the new regina...would love to have that on the feature board somewhere
    October 3 04:03 PM
  • collynas441 Hi! How are you?) Do you have plans to review the Regina Spektor album?) I can see, that you like it.) And what about Keaton Henson album?)
    October 1 02:52 PM
  • collynas441 Ok.) Here it is.) If you want to review it, please let me know.) Good luck!)http://www.npr.org/2016/09/08/492873586/first-listen-keaton-henson-kindly-now
    September 18 04:32 AM
  • collynas441 Hi dude! How are you? Would you mind if I give you a request for review?) I have a strong sense that you'll like this album.)
    September 17 01:27 AM
  • guitarded_chuck thanks dude, so many good classic disney films, robin hoods one of the best
    September 15 08:02 AM
  • Crysis Alright man, thanks for the feedback I really appreciate it. I'll post it now.
    September 12 06:26 PM
  • Crysis sent, thanks man
    September 10 10:00 PM
  • Ecnalzen I am also thinking of trying out Brave New World. Have you listened to it? It's the only one on here post Seventh Son with a 4 rating.
    September 10 08:39 PM
  • Ecnalzen I probably just need to get all their albums from the 80s at some point. Let's be realistic here.
    September 10 08:29 PM
  • Crysis let me know what you think and unless you have a different opinion you'd rather post first (because you have dibs, after all) i'll post it here
    September 9 08:53 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot K man I'll read soon
    September 9 08:36 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah some albums are just harder to pin down, whereas others make it obvious what their qualities are
    September 9 04:05 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I thought those lines were a bit overused/cliche. It's just that every review I see for some female singer-songwriter claims that she's "realer" than all the others and it's ceased to mean as much to me when I read that type of praise. I think the review could've gone more in-depth into really hammering those points home
    September 9 02:01 PM
  • Ecnalzen Hot damn, Moonchild is starting things out pretty well...
    September 8 10:01 PM
  • Ecnalzen Really? I friggin love that song. Ah, Can I Play With Madness is also on there. Youtube, here I come!
    September 8 09:56 PM
  • collynas441 I'm so glad that you like it. I hope you're doing well.) What do you plan to review next?)
    September 8 04:52 PM
