Jamiroquai Dynamite
big fan of their first two discs and I can't help but feel disappointed by the total reversal in lyrical stance. i guess i am late on the "Jay Kay doesn't care about environmental and social issues anymore" train by at least two albums but lemme say it anyway. music is still competent and catchy though, just not really superb or meaningful
Bauhaus Crackle: The Best Of Bauhaus
i mean i still adore Bela Lugosi's Dead and a few other tracks, the opener and Silent Hedges especially, but a lot of Bauhaus' old tunes reveal themselves to be pretty flimsy and lazy on repeat listens. very cool though
Faith No More Angel Dust
Nightstick Ultimatum
Slow, sludgy stoner CD with its scant lyrics adding up to a strong criticism of the G. W. Bush years. Menacing enough to not slip entirely into Sabbath worship. Contains three versions of the same song, certainly, but that song has a magickally simple riff which is welcome to repeat as many times as it pleases. Gets freaky in places with squalling saxophone or sound collage to accompany the drone-wall. Vox are not strong but nor are they continually present. Seems pretty obscure for some reason, I hope a few people look these guys up!
Gilla Bruja Tooth & Nail
Korn Issues
Their best - the funky and adventurous rhythm section peaks on Issues, where each song distinguishes itself from the next with offbeat, effect-expanded sections amid all the distortion and bassclicking. (aside from Hey Daddy, a one chord jam only saved by hilariously explorative bass playing.) Very experimental in terms of nu-metal - interludes split the disc up into small acts. Lyrics are mostly terrible but what did you expect? The follow up, Untouchables, tips all the way over into lifeless radio rock - stop here, the quirkiest Korn CD.
