|Bloodshy's Epic Jukebox Pt. 2|
♫ Put a coin in the Jukebox, pick an album. My Jukebox only likes to play an album once, so find something I haven't rated. Only one coin accepted at a time per person until 10 more coins have been added. Once you choose an album, I can't remove it, sorry. ♫ I put my own coins in whenever I want because it's my Jukebox. These DO register toward the 10-coin countdown until your turn to insert another coin. ♫ To listen to Bloodshy's Epic Jukebox Pt. 2, here's the Spotify playlist: ♫ https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2YwMVDVjXPSYrlqelsUDzn
|1|| ||The Quick|
This is basically my endless queue of music I haven't rated yet, so I don't forget what I want to listen to. I'll be mixing in recommendations using a limit guided by one rule. Basically, each person can only recommend one album per ten postings listed. If your last recommendation was ten albums up from the latest one posted, I'll take your next recommendation.
None Shall Gather
This album is a huge departure from what I've heard in previous Spieglass releases. He incorporates a lot of guitar and has some mildly heavy moments mixed in with his usual classical- tinged electronica. One thing I found remarkable was how real the violin sounded. It makes me wonder if he actually knows how to play the violin.
|3||VCTMS and Falsifier|
Misery In Death
Pretty much what you'd expect from a split between two deathcore/metalcore acts. No real memorable moments, but still very good.
|4||The Casket Lottery|
Short Songs For End Times
Great hooks and sound. I think this one may be a grower. Some of the less catchy songs have serious potential.
The Last Viking
I haven't heard much of their recent music, but this is pretty awful. The singer used to be S-tier, now the vocals are shit-tier. Songs are boring, with exception of the title track which is merely satisfactory.
I actually liked this less the second listen. It's good enough, but further dissection of the album seems to bear no fruit. "Turquoise Walls" is really good though, and the lyrics are noticeably good throughout. "As the Earth cracks in two and we fall out into space, I'll be thinking of your hands and all the times they held my face."
I think I really like the band, but I'm not sure if I'm into the album. The songs seem fresh and epic, but they never really landed where I wanted them to.
Pretty good commercial-style music. Inoffensive and trendy.
Gorgeous crescendos and lulls, might be a grower... Not sure if I'll give it a chance to make regular rotation or not.
This one threw me for a loop at first. I had to listen to some other albums and come back to it. The band isn't very talented, the singing is pretty awful. But that quality somehow adds to the charm of these songs. And they're catchy as fuck. Four plays through, I'm really digging this.
I really like the rappers and their rhythmic flow, quite a bit, but that's about all I really enjoyed. The songs are pretty cheesy and accessible in a childlike way.
Through Shaded Woods
I'm actually going to recommend this one to my roommate. I think she'll like it. It's just not my thing though.
I played this four times because I kept forgetting to pay attention to it while it was on. It's got a good sound, but it's entirely forgettable and won't be part of my collection.
Two songs on this album are phenomenal earworms. "Steal My Crown" and "Indestructible". So god damn good. The rest of the album is an inferior imitation of those two songs.
This reminds me a lot of one of my favorites, Rae Morris, and sometimes the vocals are a dead ringer for Lorde. See "Queen of the Night". This album is catchy as fuck, some quality pop.
Indie rock with an electronic feel? IDK what it is, but It was very pleasant either way. Nothing remarkably memorable though.
Classy indie-pop in the vein of Night Flowers, but it doesn't seem quite as emotionally involved.
|18||Drewsif Stalin's Musical Endeavors|
I immediately thought I was going to 4.5 this, but then flaws started coming out of the woodwork. This is an ambitious project from what I'm assuming is one person, but the clean vocals are poor... And the songs get swept away by their own momentum.
This album will be nice when I'm feeling gloomy. It's pretty cold and haunting, but also with a full feel to it.
Absolutely gorgeous. Not sure why it took me so long to listen to this album front to back, but it's a much better experience that way. I doubt I'll ever five this, but there's potential.
I'm not really sure how this album would be classified. It has elements of deathcore, metalcore, post-hardcore, nu metal, and technical death metal. It's not so much experimental as it is just an extreme crossover. Yeah, it's good, pretty brutal at times, great ebb and flow to the mood.
Mostly awarding this points for its technical proficiency and hitting as heavy as it does. The songs are like modular homes that you can only tell apart by the number on the mailbox. For something that sounds as good as it does, it gets stale more quickly than it should.
Great hanging notes on the guitars create a lush atmosphere between the heavy breakdowns.
I don't know why these guys are so good. I don't feel like they take the band seriously at all--like catchy songs are just a natural occurrence when they get together.
It's kind of like a less-gritty Tom Waits. The dissonant, unexpected melodies are somewhat of a curiosity, but maybe it'll start to seem normal after a few listens. This one's tough to wrap my head around, which means it'll probably be a 4.5.
edit: after more listens, it started to get weird in a bad way
Fox Confessor Brings The Flood
A mediocre rating for an album that is far from mediocre. It has elements I love and elements I hate which kind of equal each other out. I don't really like the country-laden vocal tones, and the songs feel disjointed at moments. But the guitar is usually good, and sometimes the harmonies are really enjoyable for few seconds.
The first few seconds had me worried, which blared high-frequency ringing, and I was like, God dammit Johnny. None of this pretentious experimental chiptune shit! Then it turned into some lovely indie-pop. Not only is it the best recommendation I've gotten from Johnny, it was also the perfect soundtrack to the new WoW zone I was leveling in. I exited my playlist and put the album on repeat for quite a while.
She's pretty cool. Hard hitting dance beats and sex noises create a thicc ambiánce. The album is pretty quick to get to the point, and keeps coming at you pretty strong. She uses a cross between dark trap beats and house, then she both raps and sings over them. The rapping itself is a bit more melodic than what you'd find in typical hip hop, and it really adds to the at-the-strip-club-on-coke vibe.
Kinda cheesy, but kinda good anyway. I used to really be into this gothy death metal stuff when I was 13.
|30||Killer Be Killed|
I don't like the power metal vocals and thrashy instrumental portions. For me to like this style of music, the melodies have to really be on point, and I don't like the melodies much either. Apart from "From a Crowded Wound," I found nothing of value.
Origin Of The Alimonies
There were a couple of solid, enjoyable minutes on this album--a lucid scattering over a schizophrenic showcase. If someone can hear songs in this mess, good for them. Have at it.
Really enjoyable, memorable songs. It's like industrial-tinged trip hop or something. A slow, calm head-bobber. Seems very Sputcore. Oh, I know. It reminds me a bit of Massive Attack, but a bit more calm.
Dead Kids R.I.P. City
This was pretty good. I listened a couple of times, and I definitely enjoyed it, but none of the songs really stuck with me.
Breakfast for Pathetics
This one didn't hit me on the first listen... which is strange for how straight-forward the album is. It's really catchy mature punk... indie punk? It's really good, and I see why people were freaking out about it.
This is about as low of a rating I will give something that actually has potential to be part of my rotation. It's a really good doomy metal album with a trance-like effect (hypnotizing, not electro synth). I'm knocking off a half point for recycling a single riff for so long.
I don't see the fuss. It's really bare sounding and uneventful, but decent enough. It's a lot better than listening to nothing.
I liked it. Kinda reminded me of Fucked Up. It started feeling a bit samey halfway through the album, but then "Sultans of Satan" happened and that was fancy fresh.
I'm not really used to this style of R&B or whatever it is. It was very engaging throughout the album. The whole thing felt like one long song, but it didn't get tiring in the least from this. Not sure if this one's a grower, probably won't listen again since it's not on Spotify.
Long Haired Locusts
Too punky, amateurish-sounding. Maybe it's just too raw for me to handle. It was okay for the first couple songs, then it became grating and I found myself skipping songs to find relief in the form of sound change, which didn't come until the very end.
Loop of Yesterdays
Good soundtrack music. I won't go out of my way to listen to it again, but I'll put it in my dark/ambient gaming playlist.

It wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be. The sound itself is so perfect, but I found the songs a bit lacking. Still very good dream pop.

This one's more of a background music album. Really great for dark ambience while gaming or something. Not so good if you want to listen to music for entertainment.

Hello, It's You
This album disappeared from the middle of my list, so re-adding at the end. IDK what I said, but I remember it being whiny and too entry-level, but still was okay. Pretty sure SlothcoreSam recommended it, but I can't find the comment anywhere. I feel like I'm going crazy.
Another album that disappeared. I have no idea what happened.
