|Top 21 albums out of 1111 rated ones|
The end of the years is at the doorstep and I rated a particular number of 1111 albums, so I wanted to highlight the ones i found most important! Also some important quotes.
(1-3 are a 5/5, 4-7 are a 4.9/5, 8-13 are a 4.8/5 and 14/21 are a 4.7/5)
"Here's a song I made up while I was watching Xena the Warrior Princess with the sound off. It's a fact. I had a secret crush on Xena. It was a secret to me too. I wouldn't admit it. She's pretty fuckin' tough. She has a good yell... she kills the stupid gladiators with the log-trap. Release the log-trap! She releases the log-trap and they all get... crushed. They'd all wanna be with her if they could, but unfortunately they're not on her side. It's a lot better with the sound off. Really, it is. And the song didn't have anything to do with Xena... but... I was about half a bottle through Jameson's... if that makes any sense." (before playing "Between the Bars" at a concert in 1996)
"I wear clothes reflecting the color of my soul!" (black)
Remain in Light
"I couldn't talk to people face to face, so I got on stage and started screaming and squealing and twitching."
"Now since I've gotten back into it, I've been listening to a lot more of the 1990s death metal type stuff."
"The most nerve-wracking experience is an oral presentation in class. And right under that would be doing 'Saturday Night Live' or 'David Letterman.' One of those shows."
Del Naja, as the Duchess of York recently discovered, swears a lot. He doesn't seem to mean anything offensive by it, however. In fact, I doubt whether he knows he's even doing it. He is just an extremely passionate individual for whom swearing is a form of emphasis and verbal punctuation. It is a style of speech you can hear everywhere on the streets of Britain, where swear-words are frequently employed as all-purpose verbs, adjectives and nouns. It is not normally encouraged at televised awards ceremonies though.
