  • avonbarksdale221 "You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life."

  • avonbarksdale221 Woah, hell of an insight man. We are the universe experiencing itself. Our lives are rendered obsolete in the face of oblivion; contextualised by the telescopic nature of the evolutionary paradigm, adaptive creatures spar with forces of time. Human consciousness and the level of self awareness we have achieved is truly a miracle. Accordingly, our lives are inherently meaningless other than the meaning with which we assign them.

  • avonbarksdale221 For real man. Love talking about this stuff. Can't wait until I can get some tracks recorded dude, really think you'd dig a lot of what I say in my rhymes.
    August 23 01:17 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 That's a really good way of looking at it dude. Human beings have an almost inherent tendency to incessantly overanalyse every aspect of their life, assigning misplaced significance to scenarios and situations they themselves create. Your mind can be a labyrinth of loneliness that seems impossible to navigate, meaning that the only logical action is to acknowledge and dismiss negative thoughts and emotions and let yourself be unaffected by that which is beyond your control.

  • avonbarksdale221 Thanks man, can't ****ing wait. It's good to have a driving force in my life for once. That's a trap you don't want to fall into, you'll never move forward if you're content to stay trapped in a past that has no future. Yeah man, I've built a new group of friends as well, its nice being exposed to fresh perspectives, aligning ideals and challenging ideas rather than having the same stale conversations every week.

  • avonbarksdale221 Sup man! Don't apologise bruh, sometimes life gets in the way. Damn dude, what's been happening? That's the way life works I guess, it's a balancing act. I've been pretty great actually dude, had one of the best rolls of my life 6 weeks ago which put every negative feeling I had into perspective. Deferred uni last week, got a job and am gonna spend the second half of next year backpacking either South America or Europe. Life's good.

  • OmairSh Been jamming RS2 after a long time, much better than RS1, has some gorgeous bits. I'll ask Daniel when they'll be releasing a new album? XD. Dude, review the DVD
    August 19 01:14 AM
  • OmairSh Enough of you and your digesting, after all this it better not be lower than a 4 or I'll hunt you down.......in ......Space, yeah! King Of Loss' chorus is weak compared to the rest of the song, and there are a few other moments that could have been better. But obviously it's an amazing record. Surprised that sputnik has such a few POS fans
    August 19 12:24 AM
  • OmairSh Not sure if I should get the regular tickets for $24 or the VIP with meet and greet (EEEEK!!) for $50
    August 19 12:04 AM
  • OmairSh Right after you rate Be. Yeah, that's what I thought. Dude the production lets it down, and a few "average" bits :/. Dude they're coming to Toronto next month and 2 days later Leprous are!! Going to have my anus torn apart.
    August 19 12:00 AM
  • OmairSh But the peer down. Okay I as well should..... fcuk

  • Mongi123 Aw dude that sucks. It must have leaked then or something.
    August 1 02:16 PM
  • IronGiant thanks for the rec will do

    July 12 09:04 PM
  • Mongi123 Yea oh well, that's the first album to happen to me as my taste grew. Hopefully that doesn't happen more often.
    July 5 11:05 AM
  • Mongi123 Man, just bumped down Eidolon from a 5. Just doesn't have that omph that it used to it's sad day :/ still an awesome album but man never thought that would happen!
    July 3 11:52 PM
  • benkim Yeah me too to an extent. He was funny as hell but what makes me hold him up in such high regard is his philosophies, not all of them though. He was a really intelligent guy.
    June 30 07:22 PM
  • avonbarksdale221 dude if you're not opposed to mixing sput/real life do you want to add me on fb? would be easier to communicate and there is things I'd rather no post on a public forum about this whole situation. plus I feel like we are on a similar wavelength anyway so. if you do, add jacob douglas from aus, loveless cover photo. if not, all good dude I'm more than happy to talk here
    June 27 01:55 AM
  • benkim hehe was really a great man and after listening and watching his material I can really tell how much he influenced the band even beyond Aenima. Died way too soon!
    June 25 11:23 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 Ever have? Its been a tough week for me, but I'll get through it man. Seriously though dude, thank you so so much. No word of a lie, after she boke my heart I messaged her the definition of love you gave in you Ladies and Gentleman... review, thats how much your words resonated with me. Speaking of, end up working things out with your girl? And thanks again bro this is just what I needed :D
    June 25 02:06 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 Bro you have no idea how much this means to me right now. Like seriously dude, this is exactly what I needed. Sad is easy; who amongst us hasn't lamented the loss of love into a wallowing pit of depleted self worth and overwhelming emptiness. Its how I react to this heartbreak that is going to define who I am. Life is too beautiful to waste feeling sad. And really, this girl isn't even near the image of perfection I projected upon her; if she was, would she have left me feeling emptier than I...
    June 25 02:05 AM
  • GuanoBumbershoot haha no worries dude. Just couldn't figure out why all of my posts were dissapearing. Got a good knee slap out of it when I figured it out. Cool list idea by the by. Take 'er ease.
    June 22 01:29 PM
  • Syne dude where an willimantic are you? anywhere near the eastern campus?
    June 17 10:49 PM
  • joomisy did you just my comment? HOLY ****ING s*** YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO MY NIPPLE, NO PLEASE, DON'T LET THEM THROW ME AWAAAAAY, NWAHHHHO
    June 15 08:05 PM
  • Chortles word man, where are you studying at?
    June 8 10:21 PM
  • Rowan5215 I know right? So much better than the album version. I enjoyed the female vocals there and all but its the emotional highpoint of the album and really deserved to be sung by him. If you didn't know, its a concept album about his wife's depression which is where all the dark vibes and such come from, and that final song is just (as the title suggests) like light breaking through the clouds, absolutely stunning
    June 8 09:35 PM
  • Rowan5215 Yep that's him for sure, compare it with his vocals on "Wearing the Inside Out" and you'll see. It is a shame, he could still hold the notes but barely do any more than that. Anyway here's something fantastic for you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Rnn2cV9NHA
    June 8 08:57 PM
  • Rowan5215 Yeah man it was quite a while after, which is why unfortunately his vocals aren't at their best on there. If it had had the quality of vocals he was delivering the early 70s, ****, I would 5 it easy. But for sure, and it hurts me a lot how much he tends to get overlooked by your casual Floyd fan
    June 8 08:51 PM
  • Rowan5215 **** yeah dude, you're welcome. It definitely doesn't touch the best Floyd records musically but imo it has the greatest atmosphere of any album relating to them, its just so dark and twisted, I love it
    June 8 08:41 PM
  • Chortles my shoutbox posts keep ****ing up lol (i think it's the ampersands in my school name). anyway ya i'm at Texas A M and i love it, can't believe i'm already halfway through
    June 8 05:26 PM
  • Chortles ya herd right brotha. I'll be on my third year this fall. My degree is in the engineering college but it's more of an engineering and business hybrid. And you?
    June 7 11:54 PM
  • dannyboy89 I getcha dude, don't worry. You're cool in my book.
    June 2 01:23 AM
  • dannyboy89 Understandable man. It's one of the few albums I really love from that era in rock n' roll.
    June 2 01:07 AM
  • dannyboy89 Did you like Mindcrime dude?
    June 2 12:49 AM
  • Mongi123 Fair enough. Post rock can drag for some people yea. But violent/bright is te best "eventful" post rock I've ever especially suicide by star.
    May 21 07:23 PM
  • Mongi123 Just a 3.5 for Violent/Bright man? Not a bad score but damn that album is just perfect to me.
    May 21 06:08 PM
  • scissorlocked hahaha! a bit of exaggeration is never bad I suppose. But honestly, what an album! shaped my whole adolescence
    May 20 11:27 AM
  • Lambda Awesome man, glad to hear it! Soundoffs are so underused on here. And yeah, the first Half-Life! Half-Life 2 was amazing as well, but the first one is still my favourite.
    May 14 09:34 PM
  • StallionMang No problem man, start with this album first: http://www.ulozto.net/xK2FxgB/boards-of-canada-music-has-the-right-to-children-1998-zip If you like that album check out Geogaddi and all their pre-Geogaddi EPs, and if you need links to those just let me know
    May 14 05:10 PM
  • Lambda Hey, thanks man! Glad to know people are reading my soundoffs. You seem awesome too! And yup, Half-Life is my favourite game of all-time!
    May 14 03:54 PM
  • Mongi123 LOL wow ok man. I've been one here high on occasion so I get ya :)
    May 14 08:03 AM
  • ksoflas I loooooooove Tool man! Killer band.I'll check Rishloo and I'll tell you my opinion.
    May 5 03:51 PM
  • ksoflas Do you have any progressive metal bands similar to PoS to suggest?
    May 5 02:59 PM
  • Mongi123 Yo I think Id that comment by accident haha who was that?
    May 5 11:59 AM
  • ksoflas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQz4FJ8Mq3khttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOqcuhu1d18
    May 5 11:04 AM
  • ksoflas I can't recall the setlist but you can take a taste:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsL6ZzEmp7s
    May 5 11:02 AM
  • ksoflas Sorry, two times on stage and they were kicking serious ass!
    May 5 04:36 AM
  • ksoflas I don't know where you are from but here in Greece PoS are fairly polular and i have seen them to times on stage.
    May 5 04:36 AM
  • ksoflas and of course amazing vocals by "genious" Daniel.They are awesome, i hope Daniel's health will improve ang give us another classic PoS album(not like the last two).
    May 5 04:10 AM
  • ksoflas I can understand how you feel my friend but more important is the fact that We know what monster band PoS is. They are by far the best progressive metal band around beside the classic like DT Fates Warning etc. Songwriting, musicianship, atmosphere, emotions, lyricism,
    May 5 04:07 AM
  • Mongi123 I don't hate then at all don't get me wrong, I respect the hell out of them for paving the way for pretty much everything. But I just won't go out of my way to listen to them. They're just a band that if someone puts them on I'll enjoy but my myself I don't really want to ya know?
    May 3 03:00 PM
  • Mongi123 I remember one time on a brand new thread specifically how the beatles came up. I said I've tried them and they really didn't do much for me either. Everyone ripped me apart and one person said "there's no reason anyone over the age of 15 shouldn't like the beatles." Come on they're like 50 years old not everyone is going to love them lol
    May 3 01:56 PM
  • Mongi123 As for dark side, the music just doesn't do anything for me.
    May 3 01:43 PM
  • Mongi123 I'm gonna rant for a sec lol lots of people on this site think that just because an album is influential or how it pioneered a genre means that it should automatically should get a 5 and its a crime if you don't. Just because it accomplished this, I'll respect it but that doesn't mean that everyone will enjoy it and it doesn't also mean its the best of the genre. Not talking about you cause you're an awesome guy but some people on this site just are mean to you cause of that and it pisses me off
    May 3 01:40 PM
  • Mongi123 Nah man all good, just having a rational argument that's all. Believe me I've tried time and time again and it just won't click.
    May 3 09:20 AM
  • dannyboy89 I getcha dude, I've gotten more cautious in my criticisms over time myself.
    May 1 02:24 AM
  • dannyboy89 I wouldn't say I bash that many artists, but when I do, I'd say the main reason is because I think the artist in question gets too much hype. Hence why I bash Dream Theater now and again. I just think the band in general is overrated, bar John Myung.
    May 1 01:53 AM
  • Mongi123 Thanks man. But it def took a while I assure you. You'll get it done eventually.
    April 29 11:01 PM
  • Mongi123 Boy you better haha nah but I hear ya. It took me a while to put my tool review into words definitely.
    April 29 07:13 AM
  • Mongi123 But dude I still wanna see this review of yours ;)
    April 28 06:44 PM
  • dannyboy89 I'm more of a Priest guy myself, but both bands are worth looking into. I got a hunch that you may end up liking Maiden more. With Priest, I suggest you try Stained Class first, it's one of their most definitive and influential albums by far. With Maiden, just go ahead and check any of their first 7, although TNotB is prob the easiest to get into.
    April 28 04:18 AM
  • dannyboy89 Do you like Priest and/or Maiden?
    April 28 03:58 AM
  • dannyboy89 You're more familiar with metal than I thought. I saw some of the stuff you got rated, and you're into dm so metal definitely isn't strange to you at all.
    April 28 03:23 AM
  • Mongi123 Ahhhh ok I feel ya. The originality doesn't bother me at all, it has way too many merits to let that aspect bring it down for me.
    April 28 12:06 AM
  • Mongi123 No more 5 for Eidolon man? :/
    April 27 07:50 PM
  • Mongi123 Haha I get ya, they're not for everyone. Both really hit me hard, especially skinny fists.
    April 26 06:05 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 Exactly man, an hour after we dropped we walked from the house to the beach I just noticed that everything seemed to be... breathing I guess. By the time we got there it was like being in another world. I've been going to this beach every summer for t entire life, yet it was like I was seeing it all for the first time. Cliche as it sounds, I really feel like I see everything a little differently.
    April 26 03:19 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 So tripping on LSD last week was basically the best experience I've ever had man. We walked through a forest to a beach in almost complete isolation, it was like being at the end of the earth. The sensory stimulation was so much that I could barely handle it. I actually started crying everything was so beautiful. As I spose you know no words can do it justice, but I thought you might be interested, looking forward to continuing to explore my perception. What was your first trip like?
    April 25 08:34 PM
  • Mongi123 Those 3's for Skinny Fists and Deloused. How, how do you live with yourself?
    April 25 06:37 PM
  • fallenbird Thanks, I got it from an icolorblind post on tumblr, it's around a year old so it would be pretty hard to find it.
    April 14 09:09 PM
  • avonbarksdale221 Fair point, and sucks you had an average roll lost time. Agreed on the magic of molly when partying, but honestly some of my favourite MDMA experiences have been at house parties with my ten best mates, strobe lights and lasers going, our fave tunes pumping and just generally rolling our faces off. Dude that is a perfect way to jam the record. My football side just lost so I'm releasing my anger jamming Aenima m/
    April 5 03:00 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 s*** man you're a full on psychonaut! I've tripped on shrooms a couple of times and acid once years ago, but I've just never been able to find a contact to hook me up which is a shame, I've been dying to trip ever since the first time I took Lucy. Hopefully that will all be changing in a couple of weeks though :] Do you like MDMA at all? Easily the drug I'm most experienced with
    April 4 07:14 PM
  • avonbarksdale221 The Echoes of progressive metal? I'm sold. Out of curiosity, how often do you trip man? Just LSD and shrooms or?
    April 4 04:36 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 and a dl link if you're interested http://ge.tt/7sEpSsU/v/0
    April 4 04:09 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 Sputnik formatting screwed the rest of my post, damn 46 ruled hard. And yeah Aenima sounds like an increidbly unique experience - you tripped to it? Will absolutely be jamming to it in the coming days! Agreed about our tastes often syncing up; speaking of which, I know you've got Loveless 5'd, so I really think you'd dig The Silver Album by The December Sound. Probably the best gaze I've heard apart from MBV, and yet no one seems to know who they are. Here's teh most jubilantly uplifting track.
    April 4 04:07 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 Just jammed 46
    April 4 03:35 AM
  • avonbarksdale221 **** no man this is the exact push I need to finally jam it! I take it Aenima is one of your fave jams?
    April 4 03:23 AM
  • dannyboy89 Foxtrot and Selling are much better starting points. The Lamb is easier to manage once you're already into their other classics. Ofc, it's all personal choice in the end.
    April 4 02:43 AM
  • dannyboy89 Feels good not to be alone in that matter. Yeah, I respect them, but Anderson's voice annoys me too much, it also doesn't help that their overall sound doesn't really appeal to me. There are quite a few prog bands I prefer, such as Floyd, Gen, Camel and KC.
    April 4 02:26 AM
  • dannyboy89 Judging by your ratings for CttE and Fragile, I guess I'm not the only one who isn't a big Yes fan.
    April 4 02:06 AM
  • OmairSh The keys during the verses are gorgeous. And you gotta love the red bass strings, so ****ing cool. I love the electronic version right at the end of the song, so addictive
    March 17 05:44 PM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aL88-J_iYCw ****ing hell that guitar and bass combo.
    March 17 05:34 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah I hear you about overproduced albums that feel too sparkly, I always have to listen to some 70's music after listening to overproduced albums. But these guys have found a good balance, the guitar and bass really pack some punch
    March 17 05:29 PM
  • OmairSh Band is pretty coo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QOAkEfi124, the production is really good
    March 17 05:21 PM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePF-CcATGLA
    March 17 05:17 PM
  • Mongi123 Yea that guitar riff near the end of that video was really sweet.
    February 21 04:59 PM
  • Mongi123 Yea same dude! As much as I love Andrew, I hope we here some more music this time around cause we know they're fantastic musicians
    February 21 04:46 PM
  • Mongi123 Sup dude. It does seem like that album would be up my alley I'll throw it on my list. Also:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8E-SfiwPTfk
    February 21 04:10 PM
  • OmairSh Daniel has Necrotising Fasciitis :/ http://www.progressivenationatsea.com/festival/event-update/1062/
    February 11 01:12 AM
  • OmairSh I can't recall which songs I love off of BE, it's so great as a complete album. Iter Impius is pretty powerful, and Vocari dei is gorgeous. I think most of the songs are interesting. It took a while to grow on me because of how different it was, brilliant album.
    January 13 05:50 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah I haven't been on much. Dam it's been a while since I've listened to POS. Be is also a terrific album
    January 13 01:15 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Always brotha, truth is the end result of mankind, so...
    January 10 09:08 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Awesome bro! Jerusalem is superior in every way. Good going!! Gonna jam Jerusalem right now in your honor.
    January 10 10:09 AM
  • SirDrumsalot Thanks man, its not my favorite episode either. But I love the show, and its the only picture that involves drums.
    January 9 11:07 AM
  • Mongi123 Thanks a lot man. And no problem bro I really look forward to reading it! It'll def be better than mine considering it was my first review and I didn't know it as well. Didn't really do it justice.
    January 6 08:37 PM
  • Mongi123 Also seeing as how you don't have many 5's, this album MUST have something that most music doesn't right? You have to think about how people would react to that too.
    January 6 07:03 PM
  • Mongi123 Well it's one of my personal 5's as well so I'm definitely interested. Yea it's heard to write a 5 without sounding fanboyish but you'll figure it out. Trust me, if you love an album enough, a 5 becomes extremely easy to write if you write about enough of them. My latest 5 review was the easiest review ever. I'm sure your drafts are fine.
    January 6 07:02 PM
  • Mongi123 Hey man just wondering, how's that Eidolon review coming? If you're still even writing it that is.
    January 6 12:15 AM
  • OmairSh The main riff on the first song is killer, especially when doubled witht he clarinet. The second has subtitles if you're interested (and the girls are prettier :P, but it's their backing vocals that steal the show. Also I'm obsessed with the bass slap)
    December 7 09:48 PM
  • OmairSh Glad you enjoyed, I've been listening to a lot of local stuff of late. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG_9QyPvrM0, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJlhSU6_HPI, I'm pretty obsessed with the second one
    December 7 09:32 PM
  • OmairSh Yo http://vimeo.com/80033590
    December 7 12:25 AM
  • JokineAugustus Hell ya man! The crimson heads made me s*** myself a few times. Also Iron Maidens and Regenerators in Re4 and the Super Salvadors.
    November 19 10:32 PM
  • JokineAugustus Ya man. Have you played the Remake of 1 on Gamecube? That s***s one of my favourites as well, and creepy as ****. Scarier then Silent Hill, at least to me.
    November 19 02:48 PM
  • nathan69 hey man thanks for your comment on my list a few days ago you're a bro in my book spaceman
    November 14 04:07 PM
  • Mad. I just reviewed Airbag: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/album/141126/Airbag-The-Greatest-Show-On-Earth/ Gimme some feedback! ;)
    November 9 01:43 PM
  • Mad. Check the Sputnik news, it's streaming on progstreaming. Could be their best yet
    November 7 03:16 PM
  • Mad. Yo man have you heard the new Airbag? It kicks arse
    November 5 03:50 PM
  • larrytheslug will do, cowboy. i read your review jus now. sounds like something ill give a try ;D
    October 18 02:37 PM
  • Mad. Damn, you beat me to it! Awesome review thoughYou'd like Cosmograf - Man Left in Space, it's a bit like this
    August 25 06:48 PM
  • Mad. Yeah, Airbag are damn good, they've got a new album out in October. Mother's Cake is also brilliant, it took a couple of listens for me to sink I but they're incredible musicians
    August 21 08:06 PM
  • Mad. I must say, you have great taste. Have you heard Airbag - All Rights Removed or Mother's Cake - Creation's Finest? You'd probably dig
    August 20 09:08 PM
  • CK I grew up with the games because my dad played them a lot. I was too young to solve them at the time, so my sister and I just used cheat codes. Went back to the games years later after having forgotten everything and solved them with a bit of thought. The only Myst game I ever solved without cheating was the fifth game, which is a shame because it's also the worst. Now I just return to the games because I love the stories so much
    August 18 10:48 PM
  • CK It very much is :) and my profile picture also has to do with a 90s game in the same series
    August 18 06:26 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah its definitely a grower as is most good prog :-)
