  • robertsona Well on my way to Booking Moon Kissed and Julia Kwamya for a two-act super socially distanced backyard concert this summer in NYC holla if you hear me. Very pumped hope you?ve been well man
    April 20 05:33 PM
  • robertsona I think you?ll definitely like it

  • Nocte Thanks Matt how you been lately
    March 29 06:37 PM
  • Dewinged Didn't want to your comment my dude, but it really looked like crap on mobile, apologies!
    March 9 11:27 AM
  • DivergentThinking lol, it?s all good man, I know what you meant. I honestly wasn?t even expecting to get promoted again... not because of the Necrotica stuff but rather because of how wishy-washy I?d been about getting reinstated again. Glad it all turned out well though :]
    March 3 09:09 AM
  • ClungeAbsentia nice
    March 1 10:22 PM
  • Dewinged Whoa surreal man, thanks Gyro!

  • SowingSeason I'll have to read it. Life's been kicking my ass so I've barely been on lately.
    March 1 09:18 PM
  • SowingSeason It was removed? That's weird...not even sure what that was about. Anyway, well let you know what I think of Knox for sure. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
    March 1 08:55 PM
  • SowingSeason Hope you know I was just playing around with that soundoff ;-) I'll check Daniel Knox soon. People keep recommending him to me.

  • DoofDoof Not sure I would say RYM is better than are a grain of sand there, you can post something and have zero feedback for ages, and the format is such that chat on album pages is really difficult (there is a comments box but the format is not great for having an open conversation). Posting lists you want to keep adding to is much better there, and searching for albums through their lists (by genre, etc) is well worth it.
    February 22 05:54 PM
  • DoofDoof I agree its album of the year so far, Fool in the Heart best song so far too - I cant see me writing a review yet, pretty busy with the newborn and just getting online and getting some listening in is about the limit...although I am still trying to do my 'Band of the Week' feature on RYM:
    February 21 08:26 PM
  • DoofDoof that plummy voice of his - I havent done a full length review in ages though
    February 20 08:56 PM
  • DoofDoof thanks for the support as always, people been treating you alright here in my absence? you did ask me 'why do you bother posting here anymore?' and I am still not totally sure but I missed talking to enough people here I thought it would be fun to return
    February 16 09:34 PM
  • robertsona hahah yeah yeah caught me off guard too. guess thats the covid livestream vibe
    February 13 02:20 AM
  • robertsona ah dope man, and that was a great set. Only knew "shake" and that's not even on an album. yeahhhhhh
    February 13 02:09 AM
  • robertsona sorta crazy that none of these songs were in the bowery electric set lol, had no idea they had more in their repertoire (than the bowery electric I Met My Band material)
    February 13 02:00 AM
  • robertsona yeah that second song ruuuuuled
    February 13 01:57 AM
  • robertsona I thought I knew all of their songs but apparently not--starting with not one but two that I've never heard!! s*** rips yah
    February 13 01:46 AM
  • robertsona alright, on next
    February 13 01:36 AM

    February 12 09:54 PM
  • robertsona Moonkissed live stream tomorrow if ur free. Will be actually high quality. Can send link if interested (8pm est)
    February 12 12:26 AM
  • Fugue I'm glad you are mostly well but that's concerning to hear about your health. Is there anything you can do about it? I'm fine too just sick of this pandemic and the isolation at this point. I picked a great year to live alone... Yes Punisher was definitely my most played album of the year, there's not a song on it that I don't love. To be fair though there are a lot of albums I've missed over the past couple of years so I have a good amount of digging to do - sort of why I ended up back here.
    February 11 11:37 PM
  • Fugue It has been a while hasn't it dude. How've you been keeping? Yes Windswept Adan is fantastic, and I also see that you also love my favourite album of 2020 so I can't go too hard on you!
    February 11 06:08 PM
  • Fugue The stupid question mark is supposed to be a breaking heart emoji but I'm glad to see that apparently sput is still stuck in the dark ages
    February 10 06:06 PM
  • Fugue I login to sputnik for the first time in an age to find out my best music bro doesn't like the Black Country, New Road album ?
    February 10 05:50 PM
  • osmark86 [con't] rant out hahaha. I wish you the best man and I'm always open for questions if you have any mate. you'll succeed.
    February 9 04:05 PM
  • osmark86 [con't] speaking of collabs, absolutely mate. I think that's a fun way of getting motivation and working outside of your own comfort zone and box so to speak. once you feel a bit comfortable with music production I think that sounds like a cool thing to try. another tip, try setting up small rules and limitations for yourself. like, only use bird sounds for percussion hits. or the song you're making has to have a tempo change at some point. this really helps you with creativity.
    February 9 04:04 PM
  • osmark86 [con't] time and effort ^^. if you're deadset on this and you see that it will help your future career (it defo will mate), then channel that inner motivation. find ways of making the things you want to learn fun. if it isn't fun you won't be motivated. but persevere and you'll thank yourself later when you start to slowly master things. it's hugely rewarding!
    February 9 04:02 PM
  • osmark86 [con't] also if you're planning on learning programming I highly recommend getting down the basic concepts (object-orientation since you want to learn C#, data types, concurency, abstraction levels, inheritance, garbage collection etc...). learning programming takes a while, but there are a million resources out there. but learning the basic concepts help you google the correct solutions and understanding how to adjust them to your own program. it's not easy, and again, will require a lot of
    February 9 04:00 PM
  • osmark86 [con't] that day to focus only on reverb. I also recommend trying to emulate the style of a particular producer you like. there are multitudes of tuts that do "in the style of" genre or artist that are super-helpful (mostly). as for photoshop, same thing there. I've been starting to learn a bit of that too because COVID and boredome hahaha. I actually started having paint nights with a couple of friends where we hang out on Discord and paint together. doing that really has helped me progress.
    February 9 03:58 PM
  • osmark86 Ableton is proprietary but yknow..ways of the webs n all. will purchase it soon though lol. I switched to it because I prefer the workflow compared to FL Studio which I used before. I wish I could say there's a simple formula, but like with learning anything it's a grind. I think the best advice would be is to (like in programming incidentally) break the "problem" down into bitsize chunks and learn bit by bit. like take a day where you say "I want to understand how reverb works". then just use

    February 9 02:37 PM
  • osmark86 I'm not sure about specific tutorials for Reason since I don't use it, but I'm sure there is plenty of resources on yt. as for synthesis, I would type in "basics of synthesis" in yt or the name of the synth you wish to learn and tutorial. there are a myriad of excellent yt channels (some more advanced, some more basic) that you can find. Computer Music Magazine has some great tutorials for one.
    February 9 02:35 PM
  • osmark86 I totally understand that mate, I've been there ;). I think a good piece of advice is to just focus on like one synth and try to learn all that it can do. Check the presets for the synth and how the different dials affect the output. usually you'll have one envelope (ADSR controller) that shapes the master volume of the sound. like a slow attack means that the sounds creeps in slower when you play a note for example. longer release means that the sound takes longer to reach silence after you
    February 9 02:33 PM
  • osmark86 release the note, and so forth. LFOs are basically continuous oscillators (waveforms really, like sines) that pulse at inaudible frequences (below 20Hz). these are commonly used to create wobbles in like dubstep when they're assigned to volume knobs, but can usually be assinged to all sorts of things such as pitch.
    February 9 02:33 PM
  • osmark86 it takes a while and it can seem very unintuitive at first, but after a while you'll start to get the hang of it. just experiment a little and you'll start to pick things up! it really kind of is like learning a language, but a very fun and creative one. music production is one of those things where you just continue to grow with it and that's part of the fun. I'm still learning a ton and I'm far from an expert at it. but man it's satisfying when you get happy accidents and just roll with it.

  • Lord(e)Po)))ts "Yo long time fan bro i swear, you just suck now is all no hard feelings..."
    February 7 06:06 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Yeah wff I never would have said anything if I knew he was patrolling his videos lmao. Especially when his cringe lyrics make him out to be such a damn softcock like I might have actually hurt his feelings and now IM the dick for just having an opinion after listening to the dude for a ****ing decade lmao
    February 7 04:18 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts i feel bad lmao
    February 7 03:31 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts I have no idea what he meant tho
    February 7 03:18 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Lol I dropped a comment on the Ritalin music video about onrys lyrics being cringe and he responded
    February 7 03:01 AM
  • unclereich im building up to exploding all over
    February 5 05:06 AM
  • unclereich No I can tell we have similar interests now I?m willing to forget the past interactions we?ve had and move on
    February 5 04:42 AM
  • unclereich I wanna talk s*** about dts
    February 5 04:33 AM
  • unclereich Hey guys talk to me thanks
    February 5 04:08 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts lol I honestly don't hate this as much as you guys do. Everything Onry contributes is 1/5 but I really don't think Zavala's production has suffered. It's unfortunate that it can't be bolstered by some actually good hooks and maybe a Reva Devito feat or two or something but that comes down to Onry failing again imo. When they inevitably release the instrumental version I'll probably get some listens out of it.
    February 5 12:45 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts i like all of the beats so far but yeah onry sucks
    February 4 12:32 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts like i get that he has a kid but all these millennial and gen z internet culture references and s*** are cringe enough without them coming from a ****ing middle aged man with blue hair dressed in a spooky skeleton suit
    February 4 12:27 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts i actually really like the instrumental of star scream, feeling like this entire thing is going to boil down to onry's weird little midlife crisis ruining everything
    February 4 12:22 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts yo dont even worry about it i just found it on slsk
    February 3 11:25 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts no i have an old mac so i dont have winrar so that might be the prob. i actually prefer non flac anyway if it's no trouble lol i don't have anything to convert it with so i was gonna have to find something online lol
    February 3 11:16 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts couple weeks couple hours whats the diff lol. and aight thanks man, i do appreciate it, i'm excited to hear the whole thing even tho it's not looking so good lol.
    February 3 10:43 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts shiii, i alreadyd the files i'm not sure which weren't working. don't worry about it too much tho no big deal to wait a couple more weeks. holy **** the lyrics on ritalin tho... yikes.
    February 3 10:31 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts got the link but the file is partially corrupted, only half the tracks are able to be unzipped!
    February 3 09:32 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Will check for it soon as I can get to my comp
    February 3 08:14 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Kk thanks man!
    February 3 06:53 PM
  • aok Basically tower defense except you play a live person and have a certain amount of elixir which grows. 3 puny skeletons costs 1 elixir, a huge golem costs 8, that sort of thing
    January 16 12:34 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts The doctor who song was one I particularly hated hahah. And the outro
    January 13 10:16 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts lol i just listened to it and i honestly thought it was terrible woops
    January 13 08:27 PM
  • aok You ever play clash royale ? I bet you'd be super into that game
    January 12 08:05 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts actually i just remembered that The KLF released some kind of comp this month, I haven't checked it yet but thats the one thing that did pique my interest
    January 11 10:19 PM

    January 11 04:47 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Honestly nothing has caught my attention yet
    January 10 11:21 PM
  • ZippaThaRippa Liked what you said in your list, chief.
    December 20 02:13 PM
  • Jacquibim It's all good man. I firmly believe in the ability of people to grow and change for the better (or worse, it should be said), and I really hope this new outlook of yours sticks. I'm also quite embarrassed for how much I contributed to the general toxicity of the site a couple years ago, but the difference is I've not had the humility or cojones to announce it publicly lol
    December 15 04:08 AM
  • robertsona it's good, very good, but the live videos sort of spoil you: they sound better with live drums generally, more energy, just somethin about it
    December 11 07:22 PM
  • robertsona ah I should, i'll prob wait til the new one comes out since it'll theoretically have "strange satisfaction," "bubblegum," "money mouth" et al. so it might be better than the mini-alb they released last year. sowing said he might review the latter if he had time but I think he's rocking babies to sleep n s*** these days
    December 11 07:19 PM
  • robertsona was terrible because of the quality: me and my friend ended up just re-watching the bowery electric video lmao
    December 11 07:01 PM
  • robertsona moon kissed livestream december 10 8pm est check their instagram if youre curious
    December 7 08:27 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Also the vought ceo guy who recruits storefront to the seven is black and knows she's a white supremacist lol
    December 7 05:31 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts I'll give that a peep later. But yeah as far as I know the only gender swapped character so far is stormfront, whose whole shtick in both the comics and the show is that they are a literal nazi, so seems less like a virtual signal and more just that they wanted to give homelander a love interest to me. They also introduced a villainous AOC stand-in, which some people were butthurt, so although there is lots of social commentary and political satire i wouldn't say it has a lopsided agenda
    December 7 05:27 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Let me know if it gets any better lol. And yeah tbh saying the boys is super sjw is pretty retarded, give it a shot ull like it
    December 3 10:55 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Amazon prime is worth getting for The Boys though if you haven't watched that, and then you could always sample Preacher for yourself while you have it
    December 3 07:27 PM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts I watched the first couple episodes because reliable sources of mine like the comics a lot and I also like the two actors from Misfits that are in it. I honestly didn't like it much tho. I've heard that it takesa while to get its footing and then it gets great however
    December 3 07:27 PM
  • robertsona oh jeez, what do you think it is? stay well brother, and have a good thanksgiving
    November 25 09:04 PM
  • robertsona one more the first song they play might be even better than all the others in that other video. hope yr doin good
    November 23 09:57 PM
  • robertsona Loved the Braids album Native Speaker but never kept up with them...that album rules though
    November 19 11:02 PM
  • robertsona my fav song is 17:30 if youre looking to sample. not 100% sure youd like but check it
    November 16 06:28 PM
  • robertsona great songs by an nyc synthpop band. its sugary but lmk if you like it. live performance, not a huge fan of the first song but from then on...a lot of them are unreleased too which is one of the few positives of this livestream environment (bands are "releasing"/performing songs that only ppl who are in their city would normally see)
    November 16 06:25 PM
  • hogan900 Their last album is alright. Absence and filthy tongues are my two favs, the production on filthy tongues is just so disgusting. Sucks the group isn?t talked about around here too often, had to go to rym to dig it up.
    October 27 04:34 AM
  • hogan900 Ah ratings wipe trolling me. Ya that?s prob top 5 hip hop for me
    October 26 04:13 PM
  • hogan900 About time u listened to dalek
    October 26 02:56 PM
  • Slex Yeah it's cool, I spaz too much anyways
    September 28 04:33 AM
  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Considering how unforgiving I've been of you I dont think you owe me an apology but I'll keep an open mind to seeing you achieve this pursuit of self growth
    September 28 01:20 AM
  • Storm In A Teacup you make me feel spoiled
    August 24 08:31 AM
  • Storm In A Teacup when the next hopesfall album comes out you have to promise not to comment on it. you owe it for last time.
    August 21 03:21 PM
  • robertsona try out thanks for coming - "stephen hawking's goldfish analogy" you might like it! ok its not from this year but itis a good friend. if you want something from this year try out "audience of summer" by miserable chillers. his voice is divisive but he's my boy and the album is excelente
    August 17 07:05 PM
  • DoofDoof Im sort of losing Logic - this place does that to you. I will probably get banned
    August 14 05:24 PM
  • DoofDoof Im not really
    August 14 04:53 PM
  • SowingSeason is that a real 1 or a lol 1 because I can't take the suspense
    August 9 11:59 AM
  • Slex Hot damn I love it
    July 28 11:19 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Will give CotM a go, thanks heaps. It's not too expensive on Steam, might get it tonight.
    July 19 12:31 AM
  • luci yes the flute melody and the "in your favor" vocal. the main climax reminds me of a volcano, i keep returning for that part
    July 13 09:29 AM
  • luci my rajneesh isn't on the album yeah. america is alright but not nearly as mindblowing
    July 13 09:13 AM
  • luci heard sufjan's my rajneesh? it's my current soty
    July 13 09:00 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene You reckon going straight into Castlevania would be too much if I'm not super familiar with more modern metroidvanias? Cheers again, think I've found exactly what I was looking for. :3
    July 13 02:52 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Thanks so much dude. I looooved Hollow Knight -- I only played Celeste because I missed the platforming elements of it, but it sounds like I should be giving more metroidvania-type stuff a go so I think I'll do that: Bloodstained looked amazing.
    July 13 02:50 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Hey man, you seem like the go-to video game guy. Please help me fill this Celeste-sized hole in my heart if you have any suggestions.

  • luci heard the klo pelgag album? it?s extremely your thing. french art pop
    June 30 08:26 AM
  • JohnnyoftheWell ha i feel big time - just the right kinda melodrama and not too overblown. would not have complained if Cave had dropped that album right after Murder Ballads tbh
    June 23 08:42 AM
  • JohnnyoftheWell s*** yeah dude, v much worth checking the album - hard to pick a favourite from it, i threw that one in on a hunch ;]
    June 22 10:22 PM
  • luci nice, was my 3rd fav track on first spin
    June 22 10:04 PM

    June 22 07:06 PM
  • thatbandsucks haha dude. Why did we entertain them for so long?
    June 17 02:11 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell if you can parcel the political and 'musical' parts of music into two distinct categories and focus entirely on the latter, then the way you hear it happens in your own personal bubble. will concede it was an exaggeration to say you live in that bubble, but the holy s*** did the level of that thread get me trigger happy lol
    May 18 05:49 AM
  • DoofDoof Where abouts are you living? Are you on your own on riding this out with other people?
    March 21 09:11 AM
  • DoofDoof Thanks, really strange times and its just starting to sink in. I am really good with time alone, and obviously I love spending time with my wife, but now I am going to realise how much I miss everything else. My wife is still having to go out and teach the children of key workers so she is going to have to try and keep healthy to keep helping them but it exposes us both to the chance of getting sick at any time too. You just have to do your bit and it would be selfish for me to go out.
    March 21 09:10 AM
  • StreetlightRock Yeah man! It's like the perfect short n' sweet punch to the gut. I have to listen to it at least twice over everytime I put it on.
    February 24 04:11 AM
  • DoofDoof The sound he is going for on this one is perfect...but I think the songs are a bit catchier on Ken
    January 31 05:10 PM
  • DoofDoof Too early to say - prob a 4-4.5 rating is my feeling. Might prefer the two previous tbh
    January 31 04:01 PM
  • dedex Niiiice ! I love that kind of blurry sounds too, so don't hesitate to keep in touch if you stumbled upon stuff like this
    January 10 05:20 PM

  • JohnnyoftheWell Ah hell yeah, that game is all about grinding until you know your way round the mechanics...and then grinding some more ;] those combos and guardian spirit attacks are addictive as hell though. Kicked off MH, kinda enjoying it so far but I feel like it's going to open up more and more
    November 20 12:43 AM

    October 29 10:50 PM
  • DoofDoof Oh, they do attack me sometimes, and when I was contrib things were closer to this Sowing reaction. Then again, I did post some ill-advised stuff I thought was funny and sort of encouraged that type of reaction a bit. Sowing isn't even doing that, usually he is criticized more for having too MOR/boring/average attitudes and taste. people say it isn't a witch hunt but the man does have to down tools and leave the site for a couple of days
    October 29 03:07 PM
  • DoofDoof They hold Sowing up so high for being a mod, impossible standards, but I guess some are younger and used to that relationship with authority figures? I dont get it. Applying context Sowing wasnt saying anything at all unreasonable, maybe not his greatest article ever, maybe not the best jokes he has ever written - but more than that as criticism? Unfounded. Very dumb reaction.

  • Pikazilla No, but I watched a couple gameplay vids and it looks sick! Ritual of the night was awesome, man, great metroidvania.

  • DoofDoof she is probably the most famous folk artist of the last twenty years and Im probably as close to an authority on folk as you get on sputnik - so I respect your plan but it were never going to work in folk/indie folk
    July 16 06:58 AM
  • DoofDoof Yeah, I know Joannas stuff, Ys is amazing - have it on a 4.5 but close to a 5 and best album of 2006. Milk Eyed Mender I know less well, think I only listened to it a couple of times - is that the one you rate highest?
    July 15 09:51 PM
  • Larkinhill Yeah dude, I?m on fb. I never use this shout box or look so I?m just now seeing your message. I?m under Larkin Hill. Live in LA.
    July 10 06:25 PM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Oh man. Wouldn't have expected you to like it, to be honest, people tend to be turned off by the vocals, but I am very, very glad you dig. Surprised to see you didn't like that Dangerous Summer, but I've only listened a couple times.

  • SowingSeason Also ppl s*** on Trebor like 400% more than anyone else lol
    June 25 02:24 AM
  • SowingSeason Wasn't directing my rebuttal at you alone; I just thought it read pretty well aside from a few misguided sentences
    June 25 02:23 AM
  • DoofDoof I listened to one song in isolation last night and it made no sense in that context - but listening to the entire new album everything worked. For now I will put up a 3.5 but I need to give it two or three more listens to decide how much I like it, the glitchy style I do like though.
    May 10 08:49 AM
  • DoofDoof I am going in totally cold minded ;D
    May 9 09:28 PM
  • DoofDoof I'll wait for the morning - I have every other Friday off work so I'll be listening to a tonne of new music tomorrow. I will give one of her older albums a go too as it is quite a quiet Friday for releases.
    May 9 09:22 PM
  • OminousGargoyle Give Portishead - Dummy a few more listens (preferably when you're sad). It's one of those albums that requires more listens from some people to get really into it.

  • Observer Hearts of stone was good, but I think Blood and wine is the real gold here. So much stuff added, on top of a new leveling system. One thing I appreciate about both is that the quests in general are not just a simple redo of the base game. It's different objective wise and the enemies are more challenging. Toussaint has really beautiful environment textures that are better than the base which surprised me. And yeah Skellige was a great switch from Novigrad and Velen.
    March 25 12:13 AM
  • Observer finally beat the main game, and now onto the expansions. Pretty awesome conclusion, liked my ending.
    March 16 10:30 PM
  • Observer oh for sure, will do, though it may take a while. I take my time with games and want to get the most out of the base game before i move on to the expansions. I agree skyrim is boring, not when i first played it back 7 years ago, but it hasnt aged well since. I tried the remaster a while ago and the mechanics are so dated and still buggy. hoping cyberpunk one ups the witcher, if you have heard of that one.
    February 25 02:46 AM
  • Observer he's like, batman and solid snake from metal gear put together in a skyrim world. technically im still fairly early on i guess, still looking for ciri but im doing a ton of the side quests. Met and worked with triss, did the bloody barons plot line, just leveling up now. Ive got the expansions too since the complete edition is really cheap right now on psn.
    February 25 02:28 AM
  • Observer yeah thats a fair point, i saw some articles about that recently. But that said, im 3 books in and his s***ty persona doesnt show up in the books, so "separate art from artists" etc applies here. Great s***. Love the lore too. Geralt is the alpha male of alpha males.
    February 25 02:10 AM
  • Observer the books are great too, all the audiobooks are on youtube so worth a read/listen if you havent.

  • J() Alexander Thank you for the kind words!
    January 5 07:45 PM
  • J() Alexander Is that a compliment?
    January 5 07:19 PM
  • Nocte Maybe I?m just missing out due to time zones I don?t know. HahaLess of a resolution and more of a life plan but just want to keep looking after the family. Doing the best I can for my little ones
    January 5 12:17 PM
  • Nocte Hey bud, have you been deliberately quiet lately? Happy new year and such
    January 5 04:12 AM
  • Darius The Imposter nice
    January 3 08:49 AM
  • Darius The Imposter I actually love the game i posted that purely to see what kind of reaction i could get tbh
    January 3 07:04 AM
  • klap Just now seeing this sry dude, threw it up anyways
    December 27 08:08 AM
  • robertsona Have you heard Renata Zeiguer - ?They Are Growing?? Check it, I think you?d love it. I?m sorry I never responded to your DJ healer (was it?) rec, I?ll check it out asap

  • WoodeeX Did your mom commit suicide after she found out you were retarded?
    November 25 04:39 PM
  • WoodeeX "go eat a dick","get dunked on kid"these are your best insults towards me.... Id rather listen to your moms queefs than cringe at your insults.
    November 24 04:19 PM
  • platnum Shut up nerd
    November 2 03:42 AM
  • platnum No I said that because I knew you would be all edgy and purposely try and get a rise out of me again but hey keep that cynical distrustful mindset, itll really get you places.
    October 27 08:42 PM
  • platnum How am I supposed to be aware of you being banned? Do you think I have mind reading powers.
    October 27 08:30 PM
  • platnum Why did you get banned anyway
    October 27 08:28 PM
  • platnum Oh that thread, right. Well I was telling the truth, I don't wish anything negative upon you or anything but the way you come at me gets under my skin at times so I would rather avoid contact with you tbh
    October 27 08:27 PM
  • platnum "we're cool gyro i have nothing against you" I never said this and also I had no idea you were banned? Why are so many people on this website soooo incredibly skeptical of the motives of others and think the worst
    October 27 08:23 PM
  • platnum Copying what I said to you, you're cool. Foh cretin
    October 27 08:00 PM
  • platnum just to be clear, i still think you're annoying and i don't like you, also it would still be best if you fked off (like stay away from me), leaving this here for future reference ;)

  • SowingSeason lol welcome to the way of us OG sputnikers
    September 30 12:09 PM
  • SowingSeason honestly the record grows on and off me like a boomerang. at its worst it's still like a 4.3, but on many days it's a classic. I just keep it at a 5 because I'm close to the band members and want to help further recognition, and also because 5'ing things is fun. Bask and Birdless Cage are also the two best songs they ever wrote, jus' sayin.
    September 30 12:03 PM
  • SowingSeason so glad you love the new mwY so'll likely end up my AOTY (Ben Howard and TROW are close behind)
    September 30 10:48 AM
  • Slex Sent
    September 29 02:51 AM
  • Slex No problemo
    September 28 02:13 PM
  • SowingSeason In my opinion it is 2nd best. There's a huge bombshell of a track that I don't think many will see coming.
    September 27 02:29 AM
  • SowingSeason It's a 5 for me, so it will have a 3.6 avg on the site. Due out 10/5
    September 25 05:36 PM
  • TheManMachine Thanx man. I've written a few full reviews on the site but I'm sticking with the short stuff
    August 23 09:52 PM
  • SowingSeason I see you 1'd Pale Horses so not too sure if you'll care: Name Your Price:
    August 14 12:51 AM
  • DoofDoof new and cool and somehow reassuringly familiar too
    July 20 02:33 PM

  • robertsona No worries I can wait lol. Can?t wait (wow contradiction) to hear that original ?30 hours? for the first time in so long tho
    June 7 09:53 PM
  • robertsona yeah hit this up however works:
    June 7 09:38 PM
  • robertsona hmu with that original Pablo
    June 7 07:44 PM
  • DoofusWainwright The problem is that people know us too well - our writing and our discussion style in general, not to mention our taste. So unless you want to write as a persona in the style of Compost Compote or something like that...we will get rumbled. For me I just want to leave that account at 100 reviews and job done with no pressure to write at all or care what type of review I put up (not that I cared tooo much before anyway, just a bit)
    June 4 02:04 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Ah, and there was me thinking I was being original. Two more reviews on that account then I will post reviews from an alt account, I wanted to sign off at a nice round 100. I really wish I had had pos/neg marks for some of these recent 0.5 reviews, just funny to know just how many offended folk are out there
    June 4 01:50 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I thought I was the one and only - who else has trodden this sad path?
    June 4 01:41 PM
  • Jacquibim Imagine rippin' on children's cartoons when you got Yes 5'd lol
    June 4 04:55 AM
  • DoofusWainwright ArchAndroid was far more interesting, will definitely revisit, really expansive stuff. We've still got some overlap in 2018 yeah, a lot of what anatelier has rec'd me this year is great - maybe try Protus Opus 'Screaming Eagle', sort of a grab bag of electronic styles. I really enjoy the Paddy Hana album I reviewed but the vocals are a love/hate thing so more of a risky rec.
    April 30 03:43 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Not sure why I feel I have to take the bait, I probably should have refrained from putting up that review, some people enjoyed it though. At least it meant I ended up checking ArchAndroid which is an interesting album that I'll revisit. Sput has been quiet this year, I was getting close to starting to check in once a week, it's close to the point where I orchestrate my own interest/debate to liven the place up. Anything impressed you in 2018 yet?
