  • JustJoe. about a week ago they wiped the ratings of someone who was giving 5?s to entire discographies of artists though i believe giving 1?s to is probably more common yeah
    May 12 10:22 PM
  • JustJoe. all in all there should be a better way to limit or eliminate other sincere people suffering consequences for the actions of those that abuse the rating function
    May 12 05:45 AM
  • JustJoe. i think they get super sensitive of it if it the ratings are designated at one artist in particular as i have seen them freak out at 5.0ing entire artist discographies before
    May 12 05:44 AM
  • JustJoe. yeah this site is full of inconsistencies but that?s part of the charm or also part of the reason why i feel like i need to speak with a therapist every time i log in here
    May 7 11:12 AM
  • JustJoe. just decided to divulge only what i personally consider classics because it?s easier to police my own ratings that way

  • Britch2tiger @AndSalx - In the tracklist I posted an Archive dot org link where I archived the sound files in a compressed zip. Enjoy listening.
    February 1 10:17 AM
  • Britch2tiger @AndSalx - Open your Shoutbox. I managed to request soundfiles from a Discogs account, out of the few that own a copy of the album (THAT was an awesome late Christmas gift). Sadly it was very overhyped - predictable but thankful to have finally heard.
    February 1 10:15 AM
  • AndSalx How did you manage to listen Janus' debut album?

  • owen why's the mac making it hard for you? It's mostly because of moving to a new city, meeting new people, writing music etc. I was stuck in a s***hole and my life had stagnated, which led to 24/7 video gamessss
    October 26 06:40 PM
  • owen b-but you can't scrobble youtube! I stopped playing games altogether, but it used to take 90% of my spare time

    March 1 11:47 PM
  • LotusFlower Ye, pretty great band. You usually dont get so many musicians with the same kind of over the top charisma of Freddy Mercury, so it's always nice to see a band that does and does it as great as Jellyfish.
    March 1 11:33 PM
  • zakalwe '94 Woodstock? yeah man, classic.

    February 16 03:49 PM
  • MyNameIsPencil haha you can say that again
    February 15 06:13 AM

  • EasterInTheBatcave that you aren't judging the music entirely based on 'songwriting' but rather on the improvisation skill of each musician. This is why jazz is so hard to play, as it is not based on a recital, as most music is, but a constantly shifting, changing aesthetic. Also note that there are many different forms of jazz (free jazz, cool jazz, smooth jazz, hard bop, etc.) in the same way there are metal subgenres (sludge, black, death, thrash, etc.) and expectations vary depending on each subgenre.
    February 8 07:03 PM
  • EasterInTheBatcave Hey, there's plenty of ways to differentiate good vs. bad jazz. The most obvious is the technical quality of the performances-- or, in other words, is it well-performed-- which is like all other forms of music. There's also the uniqueness-- does this sound like all other jazz, or is there something unique about it? Again, this can be applied to rock, metal, hip hop, indie, etc. Where jazz is different is that it is, often, highly improvisational. This can colour the other categories...

  • InbredJed Ive never checked Karnivool, although I have their discog waiting to be cracked on my hard drive.Messing and re arranging track listing is something Ive done ever since I started listening to music. Ive only ever listened to albums as a whole, and I had a great cd player with a legitimate random setting that would use all the time when I was young. I discovered that most of my favourite albums had multiple different ways to experience the album.
    February 6 10:51 PM
  • InbredJed track orders DO MATTER when listening to an album!THIS
    February 5 03:48 AM
  • InbredJed Im not much for ratings, I just do them to categorize things in my head. Im constantly changing and updating them, but I don't really think about them when I'm listening to the album or considering said albums relevance.
    February 5 03:46 AM
  • InbredJed You seem to take a similar approach to music as I do myself.Observation of art as a series of cultural phenomena which all blend into one tapestry.

  • doomjitsu Stop complaining about vocals
    February 3 08:37 AM
  • Riviere Good picks.
    January 31 10:49 PM
  • Voivod You can make a list for those comparisons, and have people voting while commenting.
    January 31 08:59 AM
  • RVAHC13 Anytime, I love Pavement for obvious reasons but GBV will always be #1 in my book
    January 31 05:51 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Yeah man
    January 29 05:31 AM
  • Voivod I'm a CD guy too, I like LPs, but unfortunately I don't have room to store them haha! Yellow Devil Sauce are lazy, they should have a bandcamp account active by now...
    January 26 08:44 AM
  • Voivod Nope, I checked, it isn't on Spotify. By the way, I like that you write soundoffs about everything you listen to.
    January 25 10:21 AM
  • Voivod I assume you are already aware of the youtube links including the rest of the songs then. I don't know what to say, band should've made a bandcamp account by now, maybe the album is available at Spotify.
    January 25 10:17 AM
  • Voivod No, it's not bad, but it's not exceptional either. Check their last album, it rocks.
    January 25 07:36 AM
  • Torontonian Anytime man. Hope i could help in some way
    January 25 03:42 AM
  • Torontonian I think that covers it. Give me another shout if you have another question. As i do really love the genre and would love to help someone else find the same beauty in it as i and many others do :)
    January 22 03:13 AM
  • Torontonian But i suppose i haven't really answered your question :P. Qualities that i personally admire in jazz are...perceived Individual Passion/power of musician, Melodic Creativity/Evocativeness, Unification of instruments to make/augment a desired sound/emotion, or anything else that you may or may not find favorable :)
    January 22 03:08 AM
  • Torontonian Bill Evans and Jim Hall- Intermodulation, Herbie Hancock-Headhunters, Miles Davis- In a Silent Way. etc etc.
    January 22 03:05 AM
  • Torontonian ... i recommend delving deeper into it, and you'll soon inherently appreciate more and more about the genre. I wouldn't concern yourself with whats "objectively/critically" considered good, just listen to what you like and keep digging... and you'll learn to appreciate the genre more and more as you do. Here are a few albums that got me into jazz, that i also find age like wine with time and exposure to more jazz...... John Coltrane-A Love Supreme, Alice Coltrane- Journey in Satchinananda,...
    January 22 03:01 AM
  • Torontonian ah, i see. I mean "good" jazz really comes down to whether you like it or not, i suppose. :P. I guess thats rather obvious but thats really the truth. But like any other type of genre of music, you learn to appreciate/discern certain favorable qualities more as you become more seasoned and familiar with the genre. There are jazz albums that i now adore that i wouldn't have appreciated as much if i had heard them when i was less familiar( and vise versa). If you like a certain artist/sub-genre i.
    January 22 02:57 AM
  • Torontonian s***t.... sent wrong link. This is the list i was referring to. :)
    January 22 12:47 AM
  • Torontonian etc etc... Listen to stuff until you find which particular musicians/styles/eras you enjoy. It really all depends on what type of jazz you like . Here's a pretty extensive and broad jazz list made by a user who knows a whole lot more than i do!
    January 22 12:43 AM
  • Torontonian Are you interested in any subgenre in particular? Thats a tough question since there's good jazz hiding just about anywhere so it's tough to set black-and-white rules. That being said, a lot of new jazz i've listened to (from my experience) is often insipid, overly noodly, or just too reliant on a style of a previous musician. But as i said there really is good jazz everywhere so its kinda pointless to set fixed rules. If you;re new to jazz i'd say start with the classics (Coltrane/Davis/mingus
    January 22 12:41 AM
  • xxm That is certainly true and you're welcome by the way.
    January 21 11:41 PM
  • TwigTW Yeah, that's true, Dukes of Stratosphere have one album and one EP. (1.5 albums, Lol.) Good luck with your search!
    January 21 02:00 PM
  • Snowdog808 No problem :).
    January 21 01:42 PM
  • xxm You have some nice soundoffs, my friend.
    January 21 12:30 AM
  • Snowdog808 Not a problem. Their album was a great addition to the then young prog metal scene, it's too bad it never had nearly the exposure that Queensryche, Fates Warning, Savatage, and Crimson Glory had.
    January 18 08:18 PM
  • TheMagicalBlender Lol I know, it was a joke.
    January 18 01:15 PM
  • facupm yeah i just wanted to point it out!
    January 15 04:07 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts do it up, there was a lot of stuff on there that i love. will be checking some of the stuff i havent.
    January 15 05:18 AM
  • Voivod According to the site owner, there's a server upgrade under way, so bugs are anticipated.
    January 11 10:59 PM
  • Britch2tiger Great... My "create a list" link is giving me trouble. Two attempts at making another list, and now the "submit" button is greyed. #sputnikmusiconthefrtizagain
    January 11 08:47 AM
  • TheSupernatural There are a few really good songs on there and that's what I remember. Crush, Tortured, and Prayer for Rain are the ones I go back to
    December 30 11:41 PM
  • killerK1 I'm just happy someone put Vex Red in a list. Such a good album, sad that they had label problems and never really got even semi big.
    December 21 04:20 PM
  • GooGooGajoob You should write a review then! Or at least score it.
    November 30 09:03 AM
  • GooGooGajoob Oh yeah? Well what about this album:
    November 30 07:48 AM
  • GooGooGajoob Could only find a broken myspace page. Honestly, I don't understand why're your after such mediocre're better chasing more rarities like The Pop Group or something. That's what I was expecting...
    November 29 12:21 PM
  • GooGooGajoob I'm afraid I don't know the act you're after. Why, you were hoping I'd make an upload to my channel for the full album?
    November 29 01:59 AM
  • GooGooGajoob Had to top Lucid Planet aye?
    November 27 11:38 PM
  • Snake. i knew what you meant. nice meme, btw.
    November 9 02:03 AM
  • Snake. /facepalm
    November 8 02:46 AM
  • Amnesian Thanks for the recc, I'll check it out.
    October 26 10:48 AM
  • sncold Haha! Thanks! I'm a huge Louis CK fan, so nice one yourself!
    October 22 05:06 AM
  • Jom I'll bottom-line this for you and leave you to your own devices: the "tab or route to follow" is to heed casual warnings. You cannot claim prejudice on their end but say you're not being prejudicial by brigading against entire artists. Abusing the rating system to give certain bands or artists (or cash-grabs) artificially low average scores is not tolerated.
    September 16 12:12 PM
  • Jom It's true that you are entitled to your opinion. It's also true that brigading against artists (even if they're obvious cash grabs) violates site policy. It seemed fair to me to give you a heads-up.
    September 16 04:03 AM
  • Britch2tiger Hey Jon, it took me a long while to listen to those Kidz Bop albums, and the NOW albums are much easier - considering they are compilation albums regarding singles from the year. About 1-2 every year, roughly 40-50 mins each. They're pretty easy albums to rate.
    September 16 01:35 AM
  • Jom Hi there: your ratings keep getting wiped because of your affinity of rating every single Kidz Bop and NOW! albums a 1. There's no way that you'd torture yourself by listening to each of those records, and while it's understandable that you want to generalize those ratings across an artist, it's going to cause headaches for you down the line. Cheers
    September 12 05:38 PM
  • Britch2tiger 9/12/15 - Happened again... All my ratings just disappeared... 3rd time now. Seriously, does anyone else have this problem!?
    September 12 10:17 AM
  • Friday13th Thanks and yes, prog is my thing. I've only heard the latest Rishloo and thought it was good if a little too Mars Volta for my taste. 3.0/5.0
    June 24 02:31 PM
  • AtomicWaste I was listening to a bit of that new Rishloo album a little while ago and found them kinda Mars Volta-y (from a cursory listen), but I made a note to listen more. I can try to jam them today though, definitely something that was on the to-do list. Thanks for the reminder!
    January 8 02:42 PM
  • Britch2tiger You know that moment when you realize your profile's ratings were all erased, so you panic and try remembering every album you listened to in order to re-rate every album... Yeah, today was such a day...
    October 31 09:12 PM
  • Britch2tiger 5FDP's first few albums make for good workout music, if you're one that fuels one's self w/ anger to move. Their early work was very consistent w/ decent lyrics. They're about a step above Godsmack.
    August 19 08:47 AM
  • Green Baron I would but 5FDP 3.5?
    August 18 02:18 PM
  • Britch2tiger Even so, I'd like to make an earnest point: these albums would be much less stigmatizing if the producers instead made "child-friendly" compilations of the today's "hot artists" by selling them as songs that came from the original artist(s). I can understand the sing-along aspect for infants
    August 11 01:55 AM
  • FrankieFrog So you've actually spent the time and energy to listen to them? That's insane. I actually owned the first two Kidz Bop albums being 10 at the time and even I won't bother listening to them now. But you do have to understand their target audience.
    August 9 06:09 PM
  • Britch2tiger Truthfully, I detest these albums. I've tediously listened to the original tracks first, then I listen to the KB versions, and these kids butcher the tracks... Every. Single. Time! As much as I hate listening to them, someone has to make a point of how bad these albums are, and I guess I'm one of the few that will...
    August 9 06:39 AM
  • Britch2tiger Trying to see if there are any worth listening, and sadly they all end in the same result: Kids CANNOT SING in comparison to the actual artists' recordings... Going to contribute more to their archive when I have the time.
    August 9 06:23 AM
  • FrankieFrog You must be a huge Kidz Bop fan.
