Another Race Tag & Release
Vocals are dull, lyrics sound generic, but instrumentations are okay if not for the production quality... Not bad but certainly not worth hearing again or remembering. Lemme redirect you to some better acts that do this band's genres justice: Insolence, Skindred, and Snot. You're welcome...
Vain Velocity Emerge & See
Lyrics certainly improved and finally hearing more focus toward a prog nu-metal identity. Still has some mending to do before it can craft a unique sound amongst other prog metal acts.
Vain Velocity Synergies
This record delivers on it's hardcore vocals during the beginning but quickly becomes more melodic toward the middle of the album and onward. I give credit how this band can sing AND play, however, I cannot help but hear how this album doesn't know which genre of music (nu-metal, hardcore, or prog rock) to build upon - not one genre mentioned is strong in their own right, which I categorized as wasted opportunity...
Voices from the Fuselage Odyssey: The Destroyer of Worlds
I've listened to ambient prog rock before, but I admit to not being well versed. The first listen sounds audibly impressive but needs further examination compared to other albums of the same category... At the moment, I cannot help but hear this album instrumentally pales to Earthside's A Dream In Static. And I'm puzzled why track 6 went straight up electronica compared to the rest of the album - wth Voices!? Again, impressive instrumentations and vocals, but diverting from your album's identity takes appreciation away from this album imo.
The Afghan Whigs Gentlemen
Perhaps not the greatest grunge album but certainly a very strong contender. It manages to take the better parts of their previous two albums, the soulful lyrical & improved production quality, and cranked them up to either 8 or 9. In short, for any grunge enthusiast this is a record worth owning!
The Afghan Whigs Congregation
The improvement of the production quality can really be heard all throughout this album. Each song manages to come off w/ such a robust feeling almost like that of Blind Melon's self-titled album. The difference though is where BM had more psychedelic instrumentals and diverse vocals, this sound relies more on funky instrumentals w/ vocals that do not have a wide range when compared to BM's Shannon Hoon. Still an impressive record!
The Afghan Whigs Up In It
A pretty fair effort but comes off as too raw to be fully appreciated in similar respects to Collective Soul's first album - Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid. Both have a fair amount of material and cater to their respective (unique) interpretations of grunge, but the listener(s) can clearly hear the muddled production quality is not as great as other acknowledged alternative rock albums from this decade.
