  • Judio! For sure man. And I've been doing well! Just finished my finals and so I'm finally done with school for the semester. Gonna spent the next few weeks relaxing and hopefully catching up on my writing haha. How are things with you bro?
    December 21 01:22 AM
  • Judio! Really nice work on the list, man. Still haven't jammed most of the albums on it haha, but I'll try to change that within the next couple weeks since pretty soon I'm gonna have a lot of spare time.
    December 21 12:59 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot nahh you're being modest man. if you apply in the new year you're a shoe-in
    December 20 06:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot dammnnn, thx dude. means a lot
    December 20 06:40 PM
  • ComeToDaddy Still a really big fan of Manners since you put up your 5 review way back. I'll definitely check out 2 since I haven't heard it, but sooooo good to see 7 get that much love. I really enjoyed Get Hurt, but it got trashed on pretty hard when it came out
    December 20 06:38 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Kinda surprised by the lack of Swans, though.
    December 20 02:51 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Fair enough. Idk, it just really stuck out to me. Sure, it's not really anything particularly new or original, but there's just something about it that really managed to draw me in. Overall, fantastic list.
    December 20 02:23 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Good stuff man, I'm certain there's a few I need to check out there. Manners came 11th on my list, I felt genuinely guilty leaving them out haha.
    December 20 01:33 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges 35 is too low smh
    December 20 01:27 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges
    December 20 12:29 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeah, I might just do that with a word document.
    December 16 05:00 PM
  • Atari dat musk ox rating
    December 16 12:29 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I tried making a top 100 list with descriptions butd it by accident :(
    December 15 06:29 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hell yeah, dude. Short, but really engaging. How have you been? I haven't seen a review from you in too damn long (it's actually been barely over a week).
    December 14 08:57 PM
  • Atari Thanks for the encouragement man!
    December 11 09:47 PM
  • Atari i actually wrote a review for that fall to november sky... album if you wanna check it out man
    December 11 07:45 PM
  • Atari damn i'm definitely liking PVRIS so far! to be honest it kind of reminds me of angels and airwaves at times but with a female singer. Not sure what you think of AVA but their new album is a nice improvement over their past work
    December 10 05:03 PM
  • Atari sweet i'll check them out when i have time thanks for the rec dude! that sucks about xmas eve, i have to work half a day but thankfully i get christmas off. Even just one single day off sounds amazing at this point lol
    December 10 04:29 PM
  • Atari nope i haven't even heard of PVRIS haha. pretty sweet? and nice man, kids always make christmas more enjoyable. Have a ton of shopping to do still myself, but i got a christmas tree last monday ;) not much else knew here just working and looking forward to time off around christmas and new years!
    December 10 04:13 PM
  • Atari what's new my man?
    December 10 03:45 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot true. i think it works with the album I described, but I'll definitely keep an eye on that. thx for the elaboration
    December 9 11:31 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thx dude. out of curiosity, what would those criticisms be?
    December 9 11:22 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo man, if you have time to peep my newest review for errors I'd be eternally grateful :]
    December 9 09:26 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I was kidding, lol. Nah, it's terrible. My real AOTY is RTJ2.
    December 9 05:50 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Nah, it's the new Arch Enemy album.
    December 7 03:42 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges smh. Btw, guess what my AOTY is?
    December 6 07:12 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Idk, but Trophy Scars and Swans will probably be up there.
    December 6 11:06 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Not sure yet. I have to study for exams so I might not get much done review-wise for a little while. I might do the new Panda Bear but we'll see
    December 4 10:44 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Nice. I think maybe I'd want a girl next Any upcoming reviews planned?
    December 4 08:23 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot what about yours?
    December 4 01:04 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Boy, 2 years old
    December 3 11:56 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thx dude, didn't know you were a father as well
    December 3 10:20 PM
  • Dancedrewdance What dog do!?? Bb
    December 3 10:12 PM
  • Dancedrewdance Aaaaaaaaa
    December 3 09:18 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges smh you misspelled the carcass ep
    December 3 07:51 PM
  • Atari hope you dig it man!
    December 3 11:44 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot It'd be chill to see morning effort make a year end list lol
    December 2 11:42 PM
  • Atari hey man, violent waves is a bit of a mixed bag imo. it has some really cool songs (like sharp practice and suitcase) but also some really boring ones
    December 1 12:13 PM
  • hogan900 Thanks man! Means a lot!
    November 30 07:27 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot bumping all my dumb older reviews... smh
    November 29 08:14 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I think quarterbacks actually have something new coming out. in might just be a short compilation though ... :
    November 29 08:09 PM
  • Atari No worries at all my man. Yeah blu sky noise is awesome provably my favorite album by them but the new one is a pretty damn close second for me right now ;)
    November 29 12:32 PM
  • Gyromania yo mark - i just wanted to say thanks for that. it always helps to find someone to relate to in these situations, and i haven't found many of those people yet
    November 29 12:22 AM
  • Atari depends on the song haha. the opening track is one of the most aggressive circa survive songs of their career, while songs like nesting doll are slower paced, but still amazing. If they're not your thing no worries man
    November 26 02:17 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Sure man, it'll have to wait a bit though but I'll check it later for sure
    November 26 12:51 PM
  • Atari not a circa survive fan eh? their new album is so damn good
    November 26 12:46 PM
  • Atari of course my man, i will read it shortly
    November 26 11:37 AM
  • Atari hell yeah man! i probably like christmas a little more than i should lol but it's just how i was raised
    November 24 02:35 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeah, same. Already started writing a one-paragrapher, and I'm gonna finish up a review I started back in August.
    November 22 10:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Worst part is that I actually know what I wanna write, but I don't have the time or energy to do it.
    November 22 09:17 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ugh, I've got writer's block again. How about you?
    November 22 05:53 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks, man. I'd say go for it. I'd also recommend you jam Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen at least ONCE before you die.
    November 16 09:48 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Going on a singer/songwriter binge for the past few days. Some favorites include: Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, David Bowie, Bon Iver, and Justin Timberlake (even if he doesn't technically fit into that category). How about you?
    November 16 09:21 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sup man. would love your input on my latest if you get a chance to read
    November 16 09:20 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges FACK, oh well.
    November 10 10:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ugh, the whole copy/paste process is glitched. Try downloading it and using the upload file option.
    November 10 10:30 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Make it your avi plz
    November 10 05:29 PM
  • ScuroFantasma I'll give it a spin then, I can dig a bit of metalcore every now and then.
    November 10 04:48 PM
  • ScuroFantasma I haven't actually, is it good?
    November 9 09:17 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I tried to resize this so you could make it your avi, but this is as close as I got.
    November 9 07:58 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. Well, thanks anyways, haha. Kinda weird that your name didn't show up on the post, though....
    November 7 11:28 PM
  • beachdude RtJ 2 was AMAZING, as good as or better than the first imo. Let me know what you think if you get to PVRIS.
    November 7 03:56 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hey man, I'm reviewing a new hip hop album, and seeing as you just finished your RTJ review, I was wondering if you had any tips or pointers, since I haven't reviewed a hip hop release in a while.
    November 6 09:06 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Cheers buddy. I'll sort a couple of those sentences out when I get home
    November 5 02:41 PM
  • beachdude It's actually a really fun record haha... PVRIS' debut is really good too if you've heard of them, they're basically synthpop mixed with some alt rock.
    November 5 02:35 PM
  • beachdude Oh yeah I still need to check that... first one was killer. Listening to some pop tonight haha
    November 5 04:20 AM
  • Atari i'll definitely let you know once i check it out haha. might be a while cause there's a bunch of 2014 stuff i'm trying to catch up on ;)
    November 4 07:18 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks for the kind words on my review, man! I'm glad you like it.
    November 4 10:34 AM
  • beachdude Great review man, I really don't have anything to add or change... I might check out Vince Staples later on.
    November 4 01:38 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Alright, I gotcha.
    November 3 08:52 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Don't mean to be a pushy bastard, but did you ever get a chance to read my newest review?
    November 3 08:27 PM
  • Atari alright man i'll give that one a shot too haha.
    November 3 05:07 PM
  • Atari is vince staples hell can wait EP similar to the one you reviewed? I tried a couple songs but it wasn't my thing at all to be honest lol
    November 3 12:47 PM
  • beachdude Will do man
    November 2 11:14 PM
  • beachdude Oh you already commented lol, I just saw that
    November 2 05:42 PM
  • beachdude Pretty good man how are you? School's been killer haha... just posted my first list on here if you have any neo-soul recommendations haha
    November 2 05:40 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Thanks for the feedback man
    November 2 03:36 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Haha, thanks man. It's a joke review, so don't be surprised if you see a lot of hyperbole.
    November 2 02:40 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Good for you man, immersing yourself in your new job is the absolute best way to get started and to make the right impression, bar none. And of course, hope it comes with a healthy pay bump too! Glad to hear it, I'll likely be more quiet for a month or so but I'll be sure to keep up with your reviews. Contrib tag must be looming soon.
    November 2 11:37 AM
  • Mongi123 Oh yea the alchemy stuff is awesome too. And man, you've heard nothing of Ulver yet ;) Messe is awesome yea but then there's Perdition City, shadows of the sun, their debut and Marriage: all of which are drastically different albums. Gotta love experimental bands.
    November 2 09:56 AM
  • Mongi123 I've seen a lot of buzz about Jakob actually I should try them out. I 5d Vhessiu such an amazing album haha. And what of Ulver have you heard?
    November 2 09:50 AM
  • Mongi123 I'm listen gonna keep writing though I ****ing love it as a hobby. Also the BIG one I've been getting into is Ulver. In addition to them I've been listening to a lot of Converge, Thrice and some older stuff too. You?
    November 2 09:41 AM
  • VheissuCrisis Sup bud thought I'd reply here so not to hijack your review, things are really good at the moment, I start my new job tomorrow in a hospital which I'm more excited than nervous about. Will be a tough month or so but then I'm hoping to get a nice balance going, play it by ear. How about you, enjoy your break?
    November 2 09:38 AM
  • Mongi123 I was going for journalism but I honestly didn't like learning about it so I'm gonna teansfer to a new school and try radiology. Just a change I needed.
    November 2 09:34 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey man, I'd love your feedback on a couple of my more recent reviews. I've been trying to improve all around, and the input would be great if you get a chance
    November 2 09:27 AM
  • Mongi123 Cool man good for you! And nothing much really, just writing away(up to 88 now haha) and just trying to get through school ugh
    November 2 09:19 AM
  • Mongi123 Sup dude! Where you been?
    November 2 12:46 AM
  • ScuroFantasma I haven't been playing for very long (about 10 or so months) so mostly just folk and some rock songs etc. as well as attempting to make my own music, I play Ukulele too which helps since I don't mind the nylon strings in summer, it's just the wound metal ones I have a problem with. I guess I'm just weird haha.
    November 1 09:41 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dan is a great writer, but he told me that he's currently got a lot of stuff to do IRL. Still, though, I wouldn't mind seeing him get the tag.
    November 1 08:25 PM
  • Judio! Oh ok, well that's good! And yep, I should have another album out next week if everything goes according to plan. Btw did you ever get a change to check the EP that I released in late-August?
    November 1 08:09 PM
  • Judio! Sorry you've been dealing with a lot of s***, really glad to see you back though! I've actually been going on Sputnik less and less lately, my classes are reaching the end of the term so the work is just piling up. Somehow I've still been finding the time to keep making music though.
    November 1 08:03 PM
  • Judio! Sup dude? Haven't seen you around for a while.
    November 1 07:50 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks, man. You ever jam Danny Brown?
    November 1 04:03 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah man. I also think Ali has a good shot
    November 1 03:59 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ugh sorry just saw your shout on who you want for staff
    November 1 03:21 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges There's been quite a few contributors that have been silent this year, so unfortunately, at least a couple are gonna get demoted. I'm curious as to who you think should be staff, though. My bets are on the three Robs (Treb, Nocte, linguist), Jac, menawati, Ali, and (MAYBE) Judio.
    November 1 03:20 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot might as well throw in my 2 cents. Jac is my top pick for staff
    November 1 03:18 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges You and Johnny are obv my top picks, but I also would say that Scuro and Rowan would probably make the cut. I'd also like to see Fripp, Green Baron, and BMDrummer get promos, but they do s***post and get banned kinda frequently in addition to all being pretty young. Gyromania is another big one, but unfortunately, he hasn't written anything in a while and got demoted a year or so back. Who do you wanna see on the staff roster?
    November 1 03:07 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Btw, nice RTJ plays. Love their two LPs. This is kinda random, but who are you rooting for to get staff/contrib tags next promotion cycle?
    November 1 01:45 PM
  • ScuroFantasma I've been pretty good actually, besides the heat (which is preventing my guitar playing) everythings great. How's life treating you?
    November 1 12:38 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Site's been pretty meh in all honesty. The mods have basically started imposing martial law on the review site because too many s***posters are spamming with alts, and we're about to get into the winter drought of music releases. Real life has been better, though. It's starting to get colder up here in NE, and I might see Opeth in December.
    November 1 12:23 PM
  • ScuroFantasma I'm a bit late to the party but welcome back Mark!
    October 31 09:13 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Sweet, man. How's life been?
    October 31 04:54 PM
  • Atari four 10's eh? well at least you get 3 day weekends then ;) on another note, you hear any great music lately i should check out?
    October 31 03:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Pretty solid, been pumping out reviews pretty steadily. Aside from that just school and family stuff
    October 31 03:09 PM
  • Atari i hear you man, glad to hear you're doing good! Congrats on the new job by the way, I can't rememember if you told me where you're working or not? Things are great with me too lately..loving the new house but don't have a working computer at home right now and i really miss reviewing :/
    October 31 03:03 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey Mark what's new? (looks like a couple others noticed your return)
    October 31 02:46 PM
  • Atari sup friend! how the hell have you been?
    October 31 02:42 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges You gonna apply for contrib next promotion cycle?
    October 31 02:34 PM
  • Atari miss seeing you around here dude :/
    October 30 04:59 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Wish you were here.
    October 25 04:18 PM
  • beachdude Hey man how've you been?
    October 16 02:27 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit got a new album out; also my last release for this year. check it out if you get a chance:
    October 2 12:45 PM
  • Atari how's it going man? haven't talked to you in a few
    September 24 01:42 PM
  • Judio! Hey man, if you're interested and have some time to spare, I just released a new LP with another user and I would love to hear what you think of it.
    September 12 03:00 PM
  • Mongi123 50 nice!! I'll check out your new one if you check out mine ;)
    September 11 01:27 PM
  • ScuroFantasma congrats on hitting 50 reviews dude
    September 10 11:13 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey dude any chance you could get a quick read of my latest rev? You're good at picking little mistakes out... only if you aren't busy. and congrats again, you're one of the most consistent user writers IMO
    September 10 05:06 PM
  • Atari stoked for you dude! also agreed with judio **** whoever negged you lol
    September 10 05:05 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeezus is a strange case. People either hate it or love it. Me? I think it's alright.
    September 10 05:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Unfortunately, no. I've been jamming a lot of Kanye and Converge over the past few days.
    September 10 04:56 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Haha, yeah. Any new digs?
    September 10 04:51 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Don't be so sure. High school is a bitch.
    September 10 04:40 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I've got half that many at 4 months.
    September 10 03:34 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Eh, not much tbh. Also, 50 REVIEWS!!!!11!!!
    September 10 03:28 PM
  • Atari No rush I'm just excited for u and wanted to give u a hard time :)
    September 10 12:36 AM
  • Atari hey buddy how you doing? hope you're not planning on disappearing before posting your 50th review lol
    September 9 06:51 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Wholly phuck, you're a 49er.
    September 7 06:49 PM
  • Atari You going with one of those albums on that list for your 50th? I'm excited to see what u come up with man. Hopefully I can get back in the reviewing game soon as well I've just been so damn busy with moving etc. and I don't even have my computer set up yet lol
    September 5 10:28 AM
  • Atari just 1 more review until 50! ;)
    September 4 07:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot (Cont) sorry for bombarding you man, I know you're busy, but what do you think of the casual approach I took on my Half Japanese rev?
    September 3 10:25 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Right on man, any chance you'd elaborate/give examples? It's just that the 'find your voice' topic is something I've seen from a few other users/staff but hasn't quite *clicked in my writing yet
    September 2 12:31 PM
  • Atari nice man, glad you had a good time : ]
    September 2 12:29 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Sweet, glad you approved. Yeah I'm still kinda messing around with different ideas, so I'm glad it 'worked'
    September 2 12:22 PM
  • Atari how was the concert on friday dude?
    September 2 12:04 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey man could you scope out my latest and lemme know if there's any slip-ups? You've got a good eye for that
    September 2 11:08 AM
  • Atari yeah i hear you man. My wife puts up with me and I put up with her haha. no relationship is perfect there are always gonna be obstacles but at least you seem to be positive about it
    August 29 04:46 PM
  • Atari that's rough man sorry to hear that. it sounds like you are pretty patient and understanding with her though. hang in their pal, hopefully things will turn around soon!
    August 29 03:31 PM
  • Atari damn dude hope it all works out for you :/ I'm always cool with talking about it if you want to but if not that's cool either way. And yeah as far as living in my brothers house it's not that I'm ashamed (I pay him rent monthly so it's not like I'm freeloading) but at the same time it's been kind of lame not having my own place this past year haha
    August 29 03:10 PM
  • Atari yeah i mean it's not my first choice for a house but it's a nice cozy little house i suppose. Besides, I don't know if I told you before, but my wife and I have been living with my brother, so anything beats living in my brothers basement lol.
    August 29 02:48 PM
  • Atari haha, nice sounds like a good time! yeah i'm just trying to make it through the work day as well. Friday's always take the longest lol. I'm antsy to start moving stuff to the new house tonight so that's not exactly making the day go any faster
    August 29 02:28 PM
  • Atari sup buddy?
    August 29 01:56 PM
  • Judio! no worries, there was never any rush. :)
    August 28 01:20 PM
  • Atari thanks man! yeah i'm excited about it but i really wish i could afford to just buy a house. ah well, i'm still (sort of) young i guess lol
    August 28 11:35 AM
  • Atari Pretty good buddy what about u? I'm moving into a new house Saturday so I'm gonna be busy as hell but I'm stoked haha
    August 27 02:50 AM
  • Judio! hope you dig! be sure to tell me what you think.
    August 27 01:12 AM
  • Judio! here you are man :)
    August 27 01:06 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges ;(
    August 26 09:24 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I'll try not to let that one go to my head ;)
    August 26 09:21 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah dude I'm always willing to hear it so keep it coming :)
    August 26 09:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot appreciate the input dude! I'm standing my ground on this one though, lol. Coltrane's 'skill' or proficiency doesn't really coincide with the point I wanted to drive home.
    August 26 09:12 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Still not as ridiculous as Death Grips.
    August 26 09:00 PM
  • Gyromania thanks man, but i doubt it =/
    August 26 08:03 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dem Morning Effort song titles.
    August 26 04:45 PM
  • Judio! :D dude thanks so much for saying that! That means a lot, and I'm excited to hear what you think! It'll be out later today, I'll be making a list about. It's only five tracks but I went super-conceptual with it so hopefully that'll make up for the short length.
    August 26 04:06 PM
  • Judio! Yeah man I think you'll dig. I'm not gonna hype up the EP or anything but I've been dying to tell someone about it lol.
    August 25 07:41 PM
  • Judio! I'm glad to hear that man! Oh and by the way, on an unrelated note, I thought I'd let you in on a secret little EP I'm working on right now. It's gonna be a sequel to my first EP, and so far it's turning out to be my darkest album yet sooooo stay tuned.
    August 25 04:49 PM
  • Judio! Yeah I'm trying not to make a habit of it and only make it a weekend thing. That sucks that you had to leave college :\
    August 25 03:23 PM
  • Judio! I can believe it. College has been fun so far, but I know that soon the schoolwork is gonna hit me hard and getting drunk every night is not gonna be an option.
    August 25 02:54 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Agreed. Fall is probably my favorite season. Not too hot, not too cold, and better than spring.
    August 25 02:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, I live in New England, where the WINTERS SUCK ASS. Although I'm not sure how that works out in Ohio.
    August 25 02:32 PM
  • Judio! I'm really loving it so far! I mean it's been kind of difficult to keep up with my writing and music making but going to one of the biggest party schools in America definitely has its benefits haha.
    August 25 02:24 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I'm stoked some of you guys are like Morning Effort so much
    August 25 02:03 PM
  • Judio! **** dude I totally forgot to check your newest review! Sorry about that, I'll look it over after class. I started college last week so I've been kind of out of it lately. Forgive me man you know I love you dearly.

    August 25 02:00 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges And completely ignore the return of DiCaprio? SHAME ON YOU! But yeah, he is the man.
    August 25 01:18 PM
  • Arcade Cheers, the dumbassery stops now! :)
    August 25 12:24 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges DiCaprio is back, bitches!
    August 23 09:10 AM
  • SowingSeason It's a great review, I commented on it and offered a few minor grammatical pointers. Keep it up, your reviews are always worth reading in my opinion.
    August 22 10:58 PM
  • Atari that becoming album was a lot cooler on my second listen lol. i had a feeling it would grow on me more
    August 22 07:45 PM
  • Atari not sure where that profile pic is from, but it's sweet haha
    August 22 11:53 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I wanted to change it to another gif, but as we all know, there's no way in **** that's possible without a mod's assistance.
    August 22 11:00 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges I lost my gif avatar, man.
    August 22 10:18 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I know what you mean
    August 22 09:05 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Hey so I gave your review a more thorough read. Really good review and honestly not anything wrong, but I would've done a bit more to elaborate on the 'distorted guitars'. You mention this as characteristic of pop-punk which is a bit of an oversimplified way to put it, IMO. Also, you associate the guitarwork with nostalgia, but didn't really explain how...Super minor nitpicks but that's all I could find.

  • Atari I didn't dislike it dude, just wasn't that captured by it on my first listen. The first time I heard wolves in the throne room -two hunters I thought it was overrated and kinda boring, but now I love it so u never know it may grow on me ;)
    August 21 10:00 PM
  • Atari so i jammed abigail williams - becoming, but i'm not sure what i think yet lol. Sometimes bm albums take me longer to digest - but it didn't do much for me on my first listen tbh : / I'll be sure to give them another shot later though
    August 21 06:05 PM
  • Judio! Yeah sure dude. I'll look it over tonight
    August 21 03:43 PM
  • Atari "Similar Bands: Wolves in the Throne Room, Emperor, Weakling, Agalloch" YES
    August 21 03:24 PM
  • Atari i could care less if black metal is considered "kvlt" or not to be honest lol. Most the stuff i dig in the genre is atmospheric bm anyways so prolly not kvlt haha. I'll let you know what i think after i check it out!
    August 21 03:10 PM
  • Atari on another note, i think i'll try abigail williams today :D
    August 21 01:56 PM
  • Atari well i'm glad it went from a soundoff to a review cause it turned out fantastic man :] honestly probably my favorite review from you. I'm stoked for you to hear Gospel now but not sure it will hit you on the same emotiona level as oh common life
    August 21 12:38 PM
  • Atari holy s*** man, stoked to read it!
    August 21 11:41 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Done. Great review, man.
    August 21 10:30 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah man, I already commented (oops). I'll sit down and give it a legit comb through after work lol
    August 21 10:13 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Posted a review the other day, could you give it a skim and share a thought or two?
    August 21 10:09 AM
  • Atari i'll definitely let you know man
    August 20 02:09 PM
  • Atari no i haven't but judging by your most recent rating of them i guess i need to check them out ;)
    August 20 12:43 PM
  • Atari yeah dude agreed it's awesome! You'd probably dig Saor - Aura as well the dude from panopticon actually does the drums for that album haha
    August 20 11:50 AM
  • Atari nice man, hope you dig them! I'd personally say to start with either suburbia or the greatest generation, but the upsides is good too, just not as good as those 2
    August 19 05:34 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges It is a bit of an elitist thing, isn't it? Look at dudes like Brostep, Sowing, and even Jombomb himself. They welcome in new users and reviewers. They don't just blow them off because of a few mistakes. Hell, look at the s*** that happened with Skele and is currently happening with Verm.
    August 19 05:26 PM
  • Atari dude if you haven't heard the wonder years yet i am beyond stoked for you haha
    August 19 05:16 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Just noticed that he actually has the flagged review for the Manners album. Now he's DEFINITELY on your s*** list, haha.
    August 19 04:06 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges I think he negged the review after saying that, lol.
    August 19 02:13 PM
  • Atari by the way since you like man overboard you might dig their compilation "the human highlight real". It's just like all their EPs made into one album i think. 'I saw behemoth and it ruled' is one of my all time favorite songs by them
    August 19 01:56 PM
  • Atari Sweet man you've been on quite the pop punk binge let me know if u want more recs
    August 19 01:28 PM
  • Atari Haha nice man! You might also dig Gospel as it's similar to oh common life. And to answer your question from earlier I like man overboard's debut, but I think their self titled is their best ;)
    August 19 11:35 AM
  • Atari yeah i really dug search the city's debut but i haven't heard it in a long time so thanks for the reminder ;) son of a gun is a jam
    August 18 07:11 PM
  • Atari have you heard any albums by them other than the new one? All I have to offer is my own confusion is great - it has detriot which is one of my favorite songs by them
    August 18 06:48 PM
  • beachdude I loved Glassjaw, I've been a letlive. fan for a while and it's awesome to see where some of their influence came from. I just listened to Say Hello to Sunshine recently and was blown away, I couldn't believe it's the same band that did What It Is to Burn. People compared that album to Glassjaw a lot in the comments so that's what made me check out Glassjaw.
