  • johnnydeking29 Dude, I finally checked out Palace of Mirrors. You were so right, WHAT an album - it's like they borrowed from and expanded upon SC3 in the best way possible. Can't believe this is the same band that made Buck Fever.

  • cb123 Nice! look forward to reading em man. I'd say so far either self titled naked city or electric masada 50th anniversary release. I quite like Spillane and Psychomagia from his solo works though along with the Moonchild series and his work with Masada. The release he did with Justin Broadrick under the GOD name is always fantastic aswell.You?

  • cb123 I'm working my way through Zorn's massive collection including collaborations. Must say it's been great reading all your soundoffs, seems like they pop up on nearly every release! haha

  • johnnydeking29 I need to check that too; you need Book M and Book of Horizons right now though. Both incredible albums.
    June 1 11:27 AM
  • johnnydeking29 Couldn't say; I'm planning on checking it soon and wondered if you dug it. I've heard the first one though, and that's a trip.

    March 23 09:26 PM
  • Angelboros Boy, do you write some very thoughtful soundoffs. The John Zorn (his saxophone abilities are mesmerizing) ones in particular really stand out, IMO

  • johnnydeking29 I've heard a couple of songs, but am waiting for the cd - considerable hype!

  • Mythodea Haha, has been so long since I wrote to you that I'd forgotten what my mesage was about! Anyway, you're welcome. I'd appreciate it a lot if you would give me your opinion on the album afterwards!Cheers.
    October 4 01:52 PM
  • Mythodea dude, saw your sound off for Blade Runner. If you like his music, check 1492: Conquest of Paradise OST. It's one of the best albums in my life.

  • danielcardoso Nah, I'm just kidding man. I don't play in Anathema, I don't even play keyboards ;) I do play guitar and harmonica in a local Portuguese band called Invictus, we're starting to make a name for ourselves :)

  • TheSpaceMan cheers man you clearly put time into them and you've kinda inspired me to eventually do soundoffs for all my 5s... and is the first HL your fav? I'm a huge fan of HL2 episode 2 but thats also the most recent one I've played so it might just be the most fresh in my head... they are all amazing games!
    May 14 04:12 PM
  • TheSpaceMan dude you seem like an awesome user, was reading a bunch of your soundoffs and I agree with a ton of your ratings, plus you seem to like Half Life or at least Valve so thats really cool too

    December 27 10:48 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow No problem. Let me know if you do. I'm probably gonna write a review on it, no matter how I feel about it.
    November 19 05:30 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Hey! I really liked your review of A Million Dead Birds Laughing's "Xen." Did you hear about their new album coming out in a few days? Just thought if spread the word.

  • Yazz_Flute Hey man, the pleasure's mine! I really enjoy the stretch of tracks from Glass Room to Absolute, most especially Glass Room and the first minute or so of On A Rail. I hope you guys keep it up!

    August 7 01:15 PM
  • camaraderie Oh, okay then, I was wondering about that. Either way, it's already happened, I don't think you should that review. There's no need. I really do like your music, especially On A Rail. Can't wait for some new tunes.
    August 3 09:49 PM

  • Dis_Con_Nec_Ted Regarding the new one, I'd say save that for last. It takes some getting used to compared to the previous two.
    March 3 02:00 PM
  • Dis_Con_Nec_Ted "I got it mostly because Gavin Harrison is one of my favourite drummers and Porcupine Tree is awesome." I think we have something in common haha. That should also be the reason to give it more of a chance. I remember seeing Gavin perform the song "Unsettled" for the first time on youtube and thinking I have to hear more of this, even if the vocals were rather intriguing yet interesting. That song is also from Drop, in fact there are a few gems to be found on the album.
    March 3 01:56 PM
  • Dis_Con_Nec_Ted I applaud you for checking out Circles, as it seems they're not biggest thing on the sput heh. For the average listener maybe for good reason. But I'd say let it grow. Didn't like the vocals at first but I gave it a chance and really dig them now. I also listened to Drop (their best) first so that may be it. But yeah, the vocals are certainly an acquired taste, so I don't blame you ;P

    August 15 04:19 PM
  • demon of surveillance hey dude I was wondering if you wouldn't mind if I did a battle of the albums with individual bands, based off of your stuff. for example "Battle of the Albums: (insert band name)" and then the three top rated albums by that band. there wouldn't be any finals or anything, just rounds for each band. do you think people would complain about it too much?
    August 15 05:12 AM
  • 731 Please stop making those Battle lists. There's enough stupidity on sputnik already
    August 14 11:51 AM

    July 29 04:32 PM

    July 29 01:17 AM
  • SeaAnemone so why not spread the word about BETTER bands that the site hasnt heard about instead of regurgitating the same bs over and over? (and obviously you're not to blame, there's no hostility here, I'm merely making a point, and your lists are a brilliant ex. of what I believe to be an underlying huge problem in the site)
    July 28 08:30 PM
  • SeaAnemone "Thursday has a highest-rated album just as high as the other bands (4.1)" Seriously? c'mon we both know how little those ratings mean... "But anyway, maybe I'll ask next time," Correct... "I just don't think it's that big of a deal tbh." OK, but it's as big of a deal as the validity you want your contest to have. More apt choices for bands would be: Jawbreaker, Jawbox, Drive Like Jehu, Frodus, Shellac, Unwound, ATDI, Armchairpolitician, La Dispute, etc.
    July 28 07:16 PM
  • SeaAnemone "I disagree, the fact Thursday is in this isn't laughable at all." OK, let me explain why then... "They are one of the biggest post-hardcore acts of all-time." False, maybe true to somebody who doesn't listen to post-hardcore... "Should I pick bands that are bigger on Sputnik, or bands that are more popular in general?" Neither, I thought the point was to pick the best or most essential? Neither of these qualities reflect 'best' or 'most essential'...
    July 28 07:12 PM
  • SeaAnemone that's not true at all, I bet ATDI would have won considering they created what's widely regarded as the greatest modern p-h album. And the fact that you included Thursday over a ton of more worthy candidates is laughable, really. just ASK somebody who knows what they're talking about next time please, that is if you actually want this contest to succeed in any way
    July 28 10:08 AM
  • SeaAnemone not trying to be n asshole dude but some of your band choices are pretty pathetic... nothing against you, obviously I don't consider myself to name 3 essentialist bands from the 18 genres, but you should really be asking advice from the people who KNOW the genres if you want the contest to retain any semblance of quality
    July 28 01:00 AM
  • SlightlyEpic screamo is a bad idea of you only include 3 because it just is okay
    July 21 07:48 PM
  • Ire a screamo list would be a bad idea because you would ruin it

    July 21 05:47 PM

  • acADHDemy very well, i will behave myself :)
    July 19 08:50 PM
  • acADHDemy (2/2) missed in a list that runs concurrently with the 2nd to last genre. You provide a nice service but a little transparency would be appreciated from your voters. That's all i'm arguing for...
    July 19 04:36 PM
  • acADHDemy (1/2) i will stop if you take two (very fair, in my opinion) courses of action. 1. Run-off Megadeth v. Metallica. I will allow you to break the one list per day rule so this can run concurrently with the next round. 2. Reserve the final 'genre' for bands that you have left off the other lists. I understand it is difficult to please everyone with nominations in each category, so I can cut you some slack, but you do miss some big ones here and there... you should let users nominate bands you
    July 19 04:35 PM
  • tombits i want to see a crunkcore list.
    July 18 09:10 AM

    July 15 09:18 PM
  • sniper Do a metalcore one next. Converge, DEP, Botch, and whoever else people ask for. An a post-hardcore one would be really cool too.
    July 13 09:38 PM

    June 1 03:13 PM
  • Hoopy Aha, touchè. I have since gone back and listened to all the songs off this album through their myspace and youtube profiles (TheGoblinChicken), lest I be labeled a hypocrite. I have to say I stand by my previous posts to you.
    May 19 07:09 AM
  • Hoopy I honestly lack the time or patience to listen through the 'whole' album but I have listened to the first 6 tracks and there are whole riffs where the drums and guitars don't sync up, also some riffs where both guitars on the track don't sync, which is odd because from my understanding there is one guitarist. I've said my piece.
    May 18 06:16 PM
  • Hoopy Indeed. I was rather harsh in my first post for I thought this was a group of grown men and I appologize. Some tips to make this a better album, tune up before every track if you have s***ty guitars. Maybe play to a click track as well, as most of the songs have some time issues. Taking into consideration how green (as in young) this band is, they have some decent ideas/riffs in some of their songs. Just need to tighten things up a bit, if they want to be taken as seriously as they desire.

    March 2 10:51 AM
