favorite bands
Cap'n Jazz Shmap'n Shmazz
Angsty and Imperfect; just the way classic emo should be. It may just be the fuddy-duddy in me getting older, but it's getting harder and harder to listen to stuff like this. The musicianship is without a doubt top-notch... but ear-retching vocals keep me from really enjoying what the band is trying to put forth. 3.1/5
Qualia Everything is Going to Be Fine
Nice mellow post-rock. It swells don't reach the emotional heights of the kings like Sigur Ros and GY!BE, but it's worth a listen if all you want is something smooth and relaxing. 3.7/5
The Dillinger Escape Plan One of Us Is the Killer
Good to know that DEP still know how to do it. Maybe not quite so enjoyable as Option Paralysis personally, but still a great album. 3.8/5
Irion Da Ronin Abstract Memories
Some nice atmospheric background music. Not really anything super experimental, but well put together and worth a listen. 3.5/5
Mr. Bungle Mr. Bungle
Concentrated Mike Patton. Off-the-wall randomness that never fails to astound as well as please. A little less consistent than California (not necessarily in a structural sense, more of in a thematic sense), but still a solid album by someone who has yet to at least interest me with every least. 4.1/5
Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Lab... Portal 2: Songs to Test By
One thing I've always stood by with soundtracks is that they have to stand on their own two feet, even without the game/movie backing them... I mean, I'm not saying that they should be treated like your standard album, but that the music should accentuate key themes and moods of the medium they're scoring. This pivotal point is where the Portal 2 soundtrack just doesn't stand up for me. A major aspect of the game is mystery; both in respect to what'd happened between this game and the first, as well as the idea of how Aperture Labs came to be... and at least for me, the music ads nothing to the experience. Instead of adding suspense or int
Breakbeat Heartbeat Edit
Smooth and relaxing. Mostly electronic ambient, but some physical instruments come in every now and then when the atmosphere calls for it. 3.2/5
