  • Insignia777 I heard you guys talking about that video I made a couple of years ago and I'm like "omfg please tell me this still exists". That video was like the stupidest thing ever.

  • Insignia777 Hey. It's Insignia. God, I was such a dick back a couple of years ago. My reviews for so terrible. I was just browsing a couple of hours ago reading a bunch of Rush reviews, and I saw my old review and I'm like "wtf is this even still doing on here?". So, for s***s and giggles, I checked it out and I'm like, god, this is so bad. Like, I deserved all that hate in the comments cause I was an a** hole.

  • chipperjones I was reading some of your reviews and well looking at some of your ratings and how do you rate albums in between the 4/4.5/5 like how were you able to rate an album 4.3 or 3.8 or whatever? I've wanted to be able to do that forever haha Let me know Thank you

    November 12 07:15 PM

    August 23 10:01 AM
  • Voivod Hey man, I'm listening to a new Swedish hard rock band named Adrenaline Rush and I think it's up your alley, since you dig Steel Panther. Their album is on spotify.
    August 22 03:24 PM
  • Ignimbrite idk if he's ever on anymore but my boy Maniac! (!) joined the Navy a year or two ago. Give him a shout-out if you feel so inclined: he might be a good resource.

    July 24 10:22 PM
  • tempest-- I can't even remember what I said in the Babymetal thread now! Maybe it was a bit mean but \_(?)_/ I don't know what it was any more. Keep writing man, you can only improve. There's plenty of dudes who like your reviews anyway!
    July 22 02:29 AM
  • tempest-- The other thing is just the comments you post, and the way you act. Sometimes it's totally inappropriate, especially considering your position in this community.
    July 22 02:04 AM
  • tempest-- It seems as though you're not understanding me properly. I don't think you're a bad writer. You'd be great as a contrib, but I believe the staff on this site should be at a level where I can look at any of their reviews and enjoy reading them. Technically you are a fine reviewer, but stylistically, I just find your reviews mainly uninteresting. It's nothing against you personally. Even so, you shouldn't let the criticism of some random Australian dude on the internet get to you.
    July 22 02:02 AM
  • CaptainDooRight swee avi
    July 21 12:33 PM
  • BMDrummer don't go emeritus man :[
    July 20 05:02 PM
  • BigPleb Stop believing the hate man, you're the only Staff for the people!
    July 19 05:10 PM
  • BeneaththeDarkOcean Hey Brendan, I just wanted to say I really enjoy your reviews. In complete contrast to what tempest thinks, I think you're one of the most distinctive reviewers on the site (he probably likes someone like Xeno's writing anyway, bleh). If you're going to be absent for a while, I would be sad to see your name taken off of Staff. Anywho, don't let The Man get you down (Fatboy Slim)
    July 19 02:00 PM

    July 1 05:49 PM
  • CaptainDooRight much appreciated my friend
    July 1 12:08 PM

  • ExplosiveOranges "The experience is about as bad as being ass-raped by a moist gorilla while being eaten alive by a bloodthirsty gazelle." Seems pretty accurate.

    June 13 11:48 PM
  • Mongi123 Ok cool man, hope you love it. I'd really love your feedback on my rev too since you're one of the best writers on the site imo
    June 12 11:08 AM
  • Mongi123 Bro since you like PT and Rush a lot, give my latest review a read! You'll love the record. It was featured for a short time too :D
    June 10 04:39 PM
  • TPM731 In my opinion, that's all the more reason to do it. The sputnik populace as a whole is a little too egocentric and self-righteous, and occasionally need to be "brought back to earth". I've seen that your controversial reviews are very good at doing that. Besides, it's nice to see people praising something, but sometimes the most interesting reviews come from those who aren't 100% in agreement.
    June 8 03:12 AM
  • TPM731 Do you ever plan on reviewing Scream Bloody Gore?
    June 7 11:04 PM
  • aok lately i'm like daria in the series finale, which made me cry more than any other episode of any show before or after. tho i think i reached the otherside with the oddities

    May 30 12:38 PM
  • dannyboy89 I sometimes think Queensryche gets too much flak for inconsistency on this site. Sure, they didn't keep up their quality after peaking, but I think people on this site are way too harsh on them. Then again, I am a fanboy.
    May 30 01:43 AM
  • Frippertronics ugh just listen to eternal delay if you're gonna do a soundoff it breaks my nigerlicious heart erry time
    May 29 06:01 PM

  • SadAndHolyGlow You look beautiful sideways.
    May 25 02:07 AM
  • dannyboy89 Megadeth and Anthrax are my faves, followed by Slayer and Metallica. I like 'em all, it's just that what you said about Slayer applies with Metallica for me. But yeah, I always thought Anthrax got dissed unfairly, imo people don't understand what they were about. I think they were unique in bringing some fun into thrash, which was mostly bleak, nihilistic and violent. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I think you get me.
    May 20 03:28 AM
  • dannyboy89 Are Metallica and Anthrax your faves out of the Big 4?
    May 20 02:49 AM
  • dannyboy89 Nice to see someone else who prefers PSBWB to RiP. Don't get me wrong, I think RiP's great, it's just that overall I feel 'Deth had their filthiest, most aggressive and most brutal release with their sophomore effort. Need to give RiP another listen soon tho.
    May 19 01:27 AM
  • OmairSh Steve Morse is the man. His Dixie Dregs era is by far the best. I wish they'd release another album. I'm actually glad he explored his mellower side, I think the results are pretty good and fresh.
    May 16 08:58 AM
  • OmairSh I see someone rated the Angelfire album
    May 14 12:56 AM

    April 18 02:43 PM
  • scottpilgrim10 It would be sweet if you checked out my Bjork list. Since you're a big Bjork fan and all.
    April 18 10:52 AM
  • dannyboy89 Well yeah man, I'm one of the few who think latter-day QR gets more flak than it should. Sure none of that stuff comes close to their best work, but sometimes I feel people judge the band too harshly for not staying within a prog-metal vein.
    April 17 05:21 PM
  • Judio! Nice profile pic, man. "You're winner!"

    April 5 12:06 AM
