  • protokute There's a lot of them still on my watch list, but the most recent ones I watched that I discovered through you were Seconds (1966) and Woman In The Dunes (1964). Really liked both, specially the latter.

  • protokute Man, just wanted to say I really like your reviews on Letterboxd, and I've been finding a lot of good films on your profile ;)

  • zakalwe Dig it. The band can really conjure up a sense of detachment and doing their own thing that makes them stand apart from countless others. Really like Science Beat. Cheers for the shout mate.

  • zakalwe Indeed I absolutely loved The Unnatural World when I first heard it I was bowled over. It sadly doesn?t get played much now but it?s still a goodun. As a result I haven?t heard Sea of Worry so cheers for the heads up I?ll give it a go.

  • Dewinged Right? It's a bit uniform, not much variation, no vocals, but that rythm section is ridiculous!
    October 12 12:03 AM
  • Dewinged Haven't heard it myself (about to) but have you heard Black Market Brass? It came out in February this year. Sounds promising.
    October 10 06:32 AM
  • zakalwe Definitely. When it came out I was tempted to five it on the principle it was a hell of a come back one of the best. It?s an amazing album.

  • DDDeftoneDDD imma google it for the heck of it
    September 8 02:01 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD apparently only this band does neuropunk lmao it was a joke XD
    September 8 02:00 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD the reason I remain at 4 there is because they could do some twists in their sound fs...I feel...check the closer again f.e. it as more feeling...
    September 8 01:47 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD accidentallyd your shout X) damn Glennfiddish XD
    September 8 01:45 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD Lightning Bolt is a clothes brand...neuropunk will be the new s*** (not really ahaha) have fun
    September 8 01:43 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD ahahaha damn...I guess you haven't approached Expander correctly bro...
    September 8 01:10 PM
  • Winesburgohio hmm yes but what are your thoughts on I'm Thinking of Ending Things, and also Szerelem, and also I'm handsome - rym me your thoughts if the sputnik shoutbox proves inadequate if you need a generous and abundant amount of words that won't fit
    September 8 02:54 AM
  • Demon of the Fall Are we complaining about good/great ratings now? I cannot catch a break on this website, lol. I was going to revisit anyway, but I listened to Laughing Stock again (and you may be onto something, for the record).
    September 2 04:53 PM
  • Demon of the Fall I enjoyed Fun House, but mostly for the jazzy bits. The production on Raw Power is err raw? The album gets arty at times, yet it?s rendered unpleasant by the ?punk band in your front room production aesthetics. In other words I don?t love it myself.
    September 1 02:13 PM
  • Demon of the Fall I see that Raw Power rating of yours, you can?t hide it like that by not commenting, haha.
    September 1 12:32 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell new Ingested worth a meme spin?
    September 1 10:12 AM
  • theBoneyKing Not yet, I'm pretty busy and prioritizing other things but I will definitely prioritize them soon!
    August 24 07:36 PM
  • Demon of the Fall Oh yeah. I?ve bitten off more than I can chew, need to take a step back and get through this mountain of filthy ?work? that needs completing.
    August 20 07:57 PM
  • Demon of the Fall I think you inadvertently started me on a ?new? DM kick. Not sure how I feel about that yet!
    August 20 03:58 PM
  • Dewinged lol ok, I have a confession to make tex, my man............ I haven't jammed it in full yet... I knowIknowIknow!! But it's so long that everytime I try to get into it I stare at my PS4 and end up playing Destiny. But I swear, I will give it a proper jam soon(ish).
    August 20 06:20 AM
  • Demon of the Fall It?s at least a ???
    August 16 06:15 PM
  • Demon of the Fall Can I just bump/rate The Ascension instead? :-).
    August 16 03:51 PM
  • Demon of the Fall Hmm, well you did make the effort to shoutbox me, so maybe? There has to be a few recent releases worth checking.
    August 15 07:25 PM
  • DoofDoof neither do I - I really liked the State Faults last year and this didnt have that instant impact but it could definitely grow
    August 10 08:20 PM
  • DoofDoof just a first listen rating for now ;) It had its moments, even sounded like Deftones a couple of times !!
    August 10 07:29 PM

  • garas Oh, hahaha! Alright I'll give them the highest priority for now. 4 releases... well, hopefully I can finish them up for tomorrow, but since I'm studying I can't guarantee it for 100%.
    May 30 08:11 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD ahaha s*** tectac, debut is much better!

    May 13 04:59 PM
  • DoofDoof notice I used the term 'vocal approach' - it dunt qualify as a vocal 'performance'. Like an anti-performance, my average telephone call to an automated call centre is more animated
    May 13 12:30 PM
  • DoofDoof such a boring vocal approach ye
    May 13 12:19 PM
  • Divaman Hey tectactoe, have you got a song for us this month? https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=191567

    March 27 08:56 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD Maybe, if you dig tomb mold f.e. it is doomy, but more on the death side.

  • DDDeftoneDDD totally bought on White Stones. Thanks! smooth, brilliantly paced, uncompromising.
    March 23 05:58 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD The vocalist is the dude from artificial brain (wich is a sick ass band from modern BDM)...your 3.5s means my 4s I guess, so that s awesome! These guys have more of a fun mood, Artificial Brain take the band's name concept to the end LMAO
    March 23 04:49 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD this White Stones dude is very very solid so far...tks for the rec... Opeth is def there...
    March 23 04:41 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD oh boy I love the dichotomy...this band was in the freeze for 20 years. I know what you re saying on the interludes, but their vibe are along many of the DM songs...always giving them a little twist.
    March 23 04:40 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD I dig the Egyptian blues vibe!
    March 23 04:34 PM

  • DDDeftoneDDD okay, you check Afterbirth if you have the guts and the nuts to see the post, gazey class in it.
    March 23 03:21 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD ahah yap...very much...its supposed to be a smooth osdm with psych vibes..."and I'm not a big Opeth fan to begin with" okay now you can do everything...that must be freeing ahaha
    March 20 04:34 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD Haven't you ever checked Morbus Chron's Sweven?...the band Sweven is their continuation? that soundoff is ugly af...wtf

    February 26 04:11 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Sputmetal is fairly reliable until core comes into the equation and then suddenly everything goes black. Got a rev up for it that you may enjoy ;]
    February 8 02:53 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell why have Loathe released another Car Bomb album smdh

    February 5 12:28 AM
  • Demon of the Fall I was racking my brain and BINGO, check the Cryptopsy thread. I knew it was another big time DM album that wasn?t actually by ?guts. That would?ve haunted me had I not been able to recollect, lol.
    January 29 06:01 PM
  • Demon of the Fall I replied to your Obscura post, but now it's buried on the previous page. I just wanted you to know someone actually bothered responding with (a tiny bit of) thought.
    January 24 08:58 AM
  • Divaman We sure are. If you've got a rec, jump on in there.
    January 10 07:13 PM
  • Divaman Hey tectactoe, have you got a SOTD for us? This month's theme is your favorite song of the 2010's.
    January 9 04:00 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD yeeeah...I mean now I'm feeling the jazzy drumming, which is pretty cool
    January 3 02:57 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD Indeed...the first obstacle to get through, is you guys hype. You get really offended by how simple and almost amateur it sounds...you have to relisten, and wait for the right time to listen freely.
    January 3 01:58 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD Yeah I just eliminate, after a relisten, Devil Master, its fun but nothing special. Cover is nice though X)...3.5
    December 20 05:07 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD that 3.5 is crazy tectac!!!
    December 20 03:53 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD You cannot be a] serious progressive rock fan without at least four or five KC albums in your private collection."
    December 18 12:33 AM
  • Demon of the Fall Sowing is a man of integrity, I doubt he'd do that! Ha. 3.5 pretty much guarantees a place in my AOTY list, so we'll see.
    December 13 11:45 AM
  • Demon of the Fall I thought my 3.0 was unwanted? ;-).
    December 12 09:29 PM
  • Demon of the Fall Oh yeah that?s definitely a track I enjoyed!
    November 27 07:32 PM
  • Demon of the Fall I wasn't even necessarily going to rate it yet, but I wanted our ratings to be on the same day (sad I know, ha). Some good stuff, bit overtly 'proggy' for my liking at times though, gets messy.
    November 27 04:19 PM
  • Demon of the Fall Woah, are you in my head today?
    November 27 03:53 PM
  • dbizzles Easy 4.5
    November 24 08:01 PM
  • dbizzles Weeping Sores ****ing me up rn. Good call.
    November 23 07:45 AM
  • DoofDoof Bad metal with some added genre mash?
    November 19 06:56 PM
  • Trifolium Hi! The new Song Of The day thread is opened and you haven't participated yet. Care to join again this month? We would be happy with the recs!https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=189442

  • EyesWideShut Eyes Wide Shut is such a good holiday movie
    November 4 12:43 AM
  • DoofDoof Listened to 30% more release last than usual ;) This will not continue, next year I expect to listen to more like 150 new releases than 550
    November 1 11:20 PM
  • DoofDoof Will give it another go but so far after my second listen two tracks stood out and the rest was still good but not as good. My ratings are moving about a bit right now - I am a bit worried because a few days ago I realised I have never rated so much 4 for any other year so had a little cull
    November 1 10:47 PM
  • Pikazilla Hai! I've been on a crazy electronic binge, man. Like, I can't stop. Should I seek professional help? And thank you for the rec, will be sure to check! I don't have a RYM account btw but I'm seriously considering making one in the light of the recent sput happenings.
    October 29 06:03 PM
  • Egarran Sure wish I could send you the album then (:
    October 29 12:18 PM
  • Egarran Vukari makes me think you'll like https://youtu.be/VtVKgl-eT1o
    October 22 01:45 PM
  • SlothcoreSam Nice rating on Jimmy Eat World. It is so boring, i don't get why everyone here is so hyped about it.
    October 18 11:10 PM
  • DoofDoof in my average listening I usually just put on Lightning Bolt for one or two tunes at a time I guess, otherwise you need to really psych yourself up. The cleaner production on the latest one makes it the easiest start to finish leason in their discog for me, so might be a bit of an exception.
    October 11 04:39 PM
  • DoofDoof new one is all killer no filler imo - and easily the most accessible...but people hear something in Wonderful Rainbow. It is only my 4th favourite tbh
    October 11 02:57 PM
  • DoofDoof if it is your first Lightning Bolt that changes things a bit - judged as part of their discog it seems a low rating. if you dont much like their sound at all well, that is that.
    October 11 02:51 PM
  • DoofDoof y'oull cowards you dont even 5 lightnin bolt
    October 11 02:07 PM
  • SowingSeason should be all set now
    September 26 01:47 PM
  • SowingSeason think I know what the issue is. will try to get it taken care of today.
    September 26 01:14 PM
  • SowingSeason sorry been busy and lost track...can you post this in the meds thread or will it not allow you?
    September 26 01:00 PM
  • Winesburgohio pleasing, most pleasing; two of his most under-rated (misunderstood?) albeit not quuuuite up there with my favourites (Paranoid Park; Mala Noche; Gerry)
    September 26 12:59 AM
  • DDDeftoneDDD I mean...def interesting post...loooooong af! whyyyy!? I kinda get why...that its the exact point I'd say...don't know how should I embrace this or not...if worth this time or not...3.5 is guaranteed tho.
    September 20 08:48 AM
  • DDDeftoneDDD daaaamn brotha. I don't know what to think of this...
    September 20 08:37 AM
  • Pikazilla I'm anxious too based on how much everyone is praising her work (:
    September 18 12:34 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD LOL I will it just got suspended with Tool...and need some jams from 2019...but you ll find me there someday X)
    September 4 10:35 AM
  • Zig Do a Theo Angelopoulos rank.
    August 26 04:29 PM
  • Winesburgohio welcome to sputnik, land of the never sent and never meant! yeah Paranoid Park is astounding, love to get your thoughts. speaking of cut off comments i did mention Claire Denis...
    August 26 12:28 PM
  • Winesburgohio hey! i'd love to see many rankings from you, but would be exceptionally interested in your Van Sant ones - in my opinion a brilliant and frequently misunderstood, or misconstrued, director. thanks much love xoxo
    August 26 11:06 AM
  • DoofDoof just like regular chickens
    July 20 04:11 PM
  • DoofDoof eraserhead is my favourite film all time, I think the fact most people can still tell that the chequered backdrop is still eraserhead is enough
    July 20 03:55 PM
  • DoofDoof it's still there on the old account tho
