musical taste

Phase The Wait
A tad better than the first by actually having a vocalist that put in a wee bit more effort. The instrumentals are not as experimental as the prior album. Hopefully to hear improvements in the future.
Phase In Consequence
This album has it's moments instrumentally but the vocalist doesn't really compare when up against their cited influences, esp The Tea Party.
Insane Poetry Grim Reality
The instrumentals (80's style) are a tad conflicting w/ the lyrics (90's in spirit), both sound literally decades apart from blending... It comes off as so edgelord lyrically that the delivery comes off as more funny than scary. Not necessarily bad but I don't think horror-core is intended to be laughed at. Personally the 2nd half is better than the first half. Being an originator I'd argue is not necessarily grounds for meriting an album as great. This album is to hip-hop's horror-core subgenre what Cromagnon's Orgasm was for the industrial genre.
MF Grimm American Hunger
Even for a 3-disc album this feat has a lot of great tracks sprinkled all throughout. Personally disc two is the best of the three. The downside is that there're a few too many tracks that're collectively not as lyrically involved, if not forgettable, on this record. Still ranks as the most impressive 3-disc album in my ears.
Rusted Root When I Woke
Band decided to retry some first-album songs on here. Not a bad album but they still haven't made any significant improvements from their first album...
Rusted Root Cruel Sun
Yeah, we've all heard their second song before (whether is be the pancake scene from Matilda or some soulless commercial). Their instrumentals overall are impressive but I cannot really rate their vocal (harmonies) as impressively annoying or annoyingly impressive. For fans of Dispatch you'll def enjoy this album.
Tool Fear Inoculum
Tool sounds as impressive as ever even w/ these meatier track lengths. HOWEVER, I believe they more or less have become what Chevelle has for their sound: unique but "repetitive." While not inherently bad in having a branded sound as "their own," there's arguably little if any innovation heard on this album when compared within their prior catalogue. Taking (obvious) elements from Lateralus and Aenima are refreshing to hear after all this time is pleasant, but after a decade it's bittersweet to imagine one's favoring band has audibly reached its peak... The first half is imo weaker than it's second half (Descending and onward). I'm only specu
