  • TheNotrap Cheers Yuli, will you be reviewing BTBAM after all? If so, I'll skip it (no problem at all - I'll be on vacation). We'll have to ask Sowing for the promo.
    August 8 03:41 PM
  • Xenophanes Long time no see (because who?s on Sputnik anymore?) Hope all is well.
    March 5 11:27 PM

  • Gyromania oops, accidentallyd my last message there, but in case you didn't get it: yeah fb works just fine for me.

  • CaptainDooRight I truly am trying to educate myself. I was raised a Christian and still am. And I'm sure you know what the Bible teaches, but it makes that some, especially in this day and age have difficulties with certain things. It could happen to anyone. So the more I educate myself, the more I can understand. I want to see things from God's perspective. Surely he knows what each person is going through and so who is man to say something that does not originate from the Bible.
    March 28 05:05 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Ok that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying even though you didn't have to. I watched a documentary on that recently. I feel like I'm way more educated now.
    March 26 02:20 PM
  • GmemberKills Not sure if you knew or not but the new fero lux album is streaming. I saw that you reviewed them before and figured you might be interested.
    March 22 04:13 PM
  • MyNameIsPencil your new ratings remind me how I wish I was able to vote things like 3.4 or 4.1 or whatever damn
    March 17 06:38 PM
  • Tyrannic What's with the name change? Now I envision the MK character brutalizing me with a stick when I see your name.

  • Jom No worries, you made it! All the best these next couple of weeks - they'll fly by, even with finals!
    December 7 03:31 PM
  • JWT155 Hey man, I've always admired your reviews and opinions, I've been here for 6 years and finally found the courage to post my first review in a long time, I'd appreciate it if you took a quick glance and any thoughts or advice you would have on it. Cheers.
    December 3 06:49 AM
  • SgtPepper hey jacob. i was going to message you on FB, but noticed it's gone. i want to say hope you're well. luv you.
    October 22 04:53 PM
  • beefshoes Are you going to review the new STS record?
    September 26 06:50 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Came here to ask you the same question as Vheissu haha
    September 25 06:59 PM
  • VheissuCrisis JR, my jaw almost hit the floor when I saw you'd given new Foals a 1.5. Please walk me through it...
    September 25 02:49 PM
  • 204409 everything i do is legit
    September 7 06:54 AM
  • insomniac15 Thanks for the kind words man! How are you? Hope everything's okay! How's going with your band, Pallow? I saw you guys have been playing several venues lately. Are you gonna record anything in the near future? :D
    August 23 07:21 PM
  • PSRB162026b Sorry for being so impolite in my feedback... I'm told I can be very unapproachable. Gotta work on that.
    August 19 08:02 PM
  • Asdfp277 Hey Omaha dude hi, I just found this album that might be up your alley given your reviews of bansheebeat, jizue, Baths, and Neat Beats. The group's called Schroeder-Headz, give them a listen: http://youtu.be/JgkROiwnNIU
    August 5 04:58 AM
  • wayfaringstranger yo Omaha-- no clue if you remember this, but I wrote a review for Haken a while back that you offered some great constructive crit on-- I've just reviewed a new album, and it would be awesome if I could get your expertise on it again man!
    July 8 05:30 AM
  • Deviant. Yeah, got a copy as well. I love it, though the initial overly "happy" tone threw me a bit
    July 7 09:23 AM
  • Deviant. Heard it yet?
    July 1 07:49 AM
  • Jom Cheers - just wanted to let you know that I read it and want to give you an articulate response. This requires sleep, but I'll write first thing in the morning.
    June 23 03:38 AM
  • Jom I sent you something to the Gmail account you last used to send material for the mixtape. If you prefer a different one, just let me know -- jom.sputnikmusic (at) gmail (dot) com(ma sutra).
    June 23 12:31 AM
  • Slut What did you think of the last dgd lp? ?
    May 10 01:15 AM
  • Jom I know you weren't super keen on 'Fair Youth' vs. me, but if you happen to know of similar bands that play in the vein of "Volga", that would be fantastic. Assume I don't know any bands, even though I know the obvious ones. Cheers!
    April 9 02:32 AM
  • Sowing Omaha where's your Sufjan review? If you don't post one now I'm going to feel like an enormous douchebag.
    April 2 01:31 PM
  • Sowing Do you care if I also review the new sufjan? Got inspired and wrote something but I won't post yet if you're like, about to unleash yours.
    March 29 11:15 AM

  • Metalstyles Hey! Could you please add that Galar album stream to Facebook (noting that it runs only until Friday midnight CET)? Also, pls make Sowing an admin as he asked. Ty.
    March 18 09:09 PM
  • GnarlyShillelagh more importantly though, bruh how are you feeling about this album ?? s*** is wild
    March 18 05:14 PM
  • GnarlyShillelagh that sounds messed up but i don't want you to die i just want to know if you do that's all
    March 17 06:58 AM
  • GnarlyShillelagh also if you die before you write it let me know
    March 17 06:57 AM

  • ArsMoriendi If it makes you feel any better, I objectify men way more than I objectify women. lol
    March 7 06:30 PM
  • ArsMoriendi I don't know if you know me very well on this site, but I often love to debate these kinds of topics, so by getting rid of my comment, you kind of killed what may have been a fun and relevant conversation.
    March 6 10:31 PM
  • Sowing Can you please re-add my 'Sowing Season' facebook account to the list of admins for the sputnik facebook page? I took myself off before becoming emeritus way back and wouldn't mind being able to things again.
    February 26 02:48 PM
  • Veldin I see you don't like Skeletal Lamping. Give some more time listening to it and dissecting it. Imagine it as a grandiose pop album that has many different movements and passages. It's ****ing Phenomenal. 5/5
    February 24 05:02 AM
  • Sowing Rudy relinquished the Decemberists, and I was going to go ahead and do it but he informed me that you had tried to dib it at one point as well. Do you have any interest in writing a review for it or should I? =)
    January 17 01:30 AM
  • Jom I did -- sorry, usually I write as soon as I receive them but several work crises (that apparently only I could resolve) popped up a bit unexpectedly, and I ran out of steam. I appreciate everything!
    December 16 01:52 PM

  • OwMySnauze Hey Omaha, have you checked out the new White Arms Of Athena yet? You should definitely review it if you have the time.
    December 9 06:06 PM
  • Deviant. It's so grossly over the top, I love it
    December 8 02:06 AM
  • Deviant. Yeah. NICE CLARK RATING!
    December 7 11:28 PM

    November 29 09:11 AM
  • Mythodea Hey, quick question. Where the hell does your avatar come from? That gif you have playing. It's a little unsettling. I always wandered and I thought of giving it a try and asking you.
    November 19 07:41 PM
  • Deviant. I love her persona, and the beats are fantastic. There is no cohesive theme to the LP, unlike say the Banks LP, but it's an amazing collection of "pop" tunes
    November 13 09:31 AM
  • 204409 oh ya
    November 2 05:54 PM
  • Deviant. Of course. Does the pope s*** in the woods?

  • Deviant. Well either that, or: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/1904/Brian-Eno-Ambient-1:-Music-For-Airports/
    October 6 05:23 AM
  • Futures hey my latest review didn't get any staff feedback. any constructive criticism you could offer would be awesome.
    October 6 01:39 AM
  • Deviant. Fairly recent, yeah? I guess it has its share of cheesy tracks, but they're almost primarily the singles (except for Left Right, which is all kinds of horrible). But it also has some great tunes on it - Hold Tight London, Surface To Air etc. I guess it's just more of a fun album for the duo, just letting loose. Kinda reminds me of a less zany Basement Jaxx. It's just dance music I guess, dancing with a smile on your face
    October 4 02:58 AM
  • TomAnderson What is your favorite Staind album? Mine is 14 Shades of Grey.

  • Jots Ah ok. For example, would you say my approach on my Helix Nebula review was kinda weak in that sense?
    September 15 07:47 PM
  • Jots Hey Omaha, what are your thoughts on personal reviews? I know quite a few staff users like to incorporate a personal touch in their reviews, yet I still see people condemn that sorta thing... what are some general Dos and Don'ts with this?
    September 15 07:08 PM
  • Tyrael Hello, to answer your question I'm in quite a turbulent period atm. The whole situation is quite emotionally taxing which is probably why the new contortionist hit me so hard.... So yea I'm doing fine ;]
    September 13 08:17 PM
  • Pon dries up* gosh darn
    September 13 03:04 PM
  • Pon No worries man, I've noticed that once you get to contrib/staff that constructive criticism drives up significantly. Also sorry about that whole "and" thing, I've always been told not to do it, and my own reviews have been criticised for the same thing. Glad you took the pointers with good graces.
    September 13 03:00 PM

  • ExplosiveOranges Fair enough. I will forever miss that gif of a bear punching Joffrey in the face underneath your name.
    September 8 10:46 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges WTF dude what happened to Brienne with Joffrey's face and the bear?
    September 8 10:25 PM
  • Azn. ohai omaha, I've been on a hiatus of sorts, things are surprisingly busy all time time now. I'll probably end up hearing something really good and end up reviewing it sometime, and who knows, maybe I'll get back into the groove!
    September 3 04:42 AM
  • Willie Got a stream for The Contortionist. Check the review area.
    August 31 04:57 PM
  • fromtheinside you said on my review i contradicted my self but i'm not seeing it. I said that they try to be different in their short songs but none of the short songs are different and that when they get a chance to lengthen an idea, instead of it being the same sound for 3 minutes actually flushes out most of their ideas. So i criticized their lack of variation on their short titles which consume most of the album. No?

    July 16 03:44 AM
  • PitchforkArms Hey man, I'm guessing you're going to try and hop on The Contortionist's new album and review it right when it comes out , right?
    July 15 10:02 PM
  • fromtheinside the fanboy in me obviously says yes, seriously jacob, listen to it haha. objectively tho it's pretty good and most of it will never be heard on the radio. it's clearly chevelle but they sound like a band in the smoothest of strides, and saying "it's clearly chevelle" doesn't SEEM to hold the same weight when hearing it. tl;dr yes, of course yes haha did you think i'd say no? avoid hats off tho goddamn that s*** sucks. wow this comment is gonna be long, see this is what happens with chevy

    July 5 04:03 AM
  • cryptside Yeah, just came out of a bad writer's block so I feel good about my most recent output. Your reviews are definitely at the top of the heap around imo. What videogame is that, never heard of it. I'm not in school, I have one of those real-world jobs that people complain about. I'm a second level support specialist at a telecommunications company. What about you?
    July 4 05:08 PM
  • stuck_in_decades It's always nice to see that people enjoy the same music as you do (:
    July 4 04:09 PM
  • cryptside Yeah, same here man! Nothing wrong with some fireworks, I think I am getting together with some friends to drink and light off some annoyingly loud fireworks myself. The three day weekend will do me some good considering the stressful work week that I have had haha. Btw, awesome ETID review. Their new one is SO good compared to Ex Lives.
    July 3 08:30 PM

  • ExplosiveOranges Hey dude, this is a random question, but if an album has a stream out, is it fair game for reviewing? Or do you have to wait for an official release?
    July 2 02:13 AM
  • Judio! Oh good, thank you for looking it over :)
    June 29 07:45 AM
  • Judio! Hey man, just edited the first paragraph of my newest review. Would you mind taking a look at it and letting me know if it is better/worse than the paragraph I had before?

  • Xenophanes Virgins IS that good, eh?

    June 15 05:34 PM
  • Calc really? I'm loving it. I spent like an hour last night learning the single on guitar. What's holding you back?
    June 15 04:22 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Whoops, my bad! I saw your Ben Frost rating, and forgot that it was a completely different guy who reviewed the album. Apologies. Anyway, I'm eager to see what you think of the new Every Time I Die album, since I've just been getting into them recently.
    June 15 02:02 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I was worried you'd gotten irritated at me and just refused to give a s***. No problem, man. Great Ben Frost review, by the way.

    March 20 03:04 PM
  • WatchItExplode I do. It is certainly a step-up from the recent output. Still moments of tedium and 311-by-numbers tracks, but there seems to be some actual effort to shake things up a bit to surprise and engage the listener. Still, the best moments are like negatives or b-sides of their classic material. Not quite there, but close enough to remind us of where they've been.
    March 13 04:01 PM
  • WatchItExplode So you going to review Stereolithic Jacob? Or will you not lower yourself to that level as a staffer?

    February 17 09:52 AM
  • Hyperion1001 haha thanks dude. the opposition to adding me was probably deserved cause i was having trouble coming to terms with the fact that a lot of my old friends from here were gone and i was kind of "out of the loop" so to say, and i had a period where i reacted poorly to it. but ive found a really cool group of people here who are smart, love talking about music, and have opinions i respect so thats really changed my attitude lately, and i hope it shows up in what i can contribute from here on out.

    February 11 06:15 PM
  • MO Yea man it's pretty underwhelming ugh. I still gotta give it a couple more listens. In all honesty I pretty much saw it coming.

  • Crysis All yours man, I reviewed their last one so if you want this one go ahead. Not sure if I'll even like it haha
    January 30 05:55 PM
  • Metalstyles Me too, because while I do appreciate constructive crit a lot, it's really humbling to have someone tear you a new one lol.
    January 29 06:19 PM
  • Metalstyles I still (generally, unless I'm reeeeeally excited about the album and can't hold back haha) don't post reviews right after I've finished writing them, because nine times out of ten I'll change something about them the day after, and nine times out of ten those changes are for the better. I have a review lying around right now, for example, that is basically in a finished state, but I'll still look over it tomorrow before posting.
    January 29 05:48 PM
  • Metalstyles That's a good point about counterintuitivity (not sure if that's a word but if not, coining the term now). It does seem to be that, while the ideas may be right and genuine as you write them down based on how you're feeling at a given moment, structurally you can only improve what you've written when coming back to it. At least, that's how it seems to me.
    January 29 05:46 PM
  • Metalstyles I typed here because I don't want to detract from whatever real album discussion may appear in that thread. Anyway, those are just my thoughts - you may act (or not act) on them as you wish.
    January 28 10:48 PM
  • Metalstyles Yeah, your opening sentences read much better now. Still, if I may, imo the last sentence of the first para doesn't really work because it sounds both too vague ("Really, this record is dripping in everything it incorporates" - as a reader who hasn't heard the album this tells me absolutely nothing and it sounds kinda pretentious) and is contradictory (I may be a bit pedantic here, but if something is "far removed", that means there is no trace of said phenomenon/thing).

  • Ecnalzen Niiiiice, boi. Way to get the hook up. So, do you actually know the band a little bit?
    January 28 05:45 PM
  • Monheim yr punch was insubstantial much like Parades' sound
    January 22 10:14 PM
  • Monheim omg fite me
    January 22 07:34 PM
  • silentstar I just saw on that one list that your favourite album is No More Stories - that's awesome! I found out about that album/band a couple of months ago and it has been constantly on replay. what are your three favourite songs off the album?
    January 16 01:17 AM
  • DaveyBoy Great to hear and good on the band for doing that. Im playing it by ear with reviewing for the foreseeable future. Got a couple in mind, but I really need more lead in time now than I did before.
    January 11 06:19 AM
  • DaveyBoy Ok, Im biting. Where did you get new Icarus from?
    January 10 01:31 PM
  • luci devon welsh 8)
    January 7 07:26 AM
  • ShitsofRain Yeah, it's nothing special really. The whole thing is pretty much played out.
    January 2 06:33 PM
  • ShitsofRain It's great if not excellent. It's like Anthony Green would sing for Dance Gavin Dance.
    January 2 06:23 PM
  • clercqie Nope, I only criticise others. Way easier job. ;]

  • FearThyEvil I see, and I do want to start reviewing however, I fear my grammar is atrocious. I love talking about music and reaching out to other listeners with newer recommendations. I'm thinking of making a youtube reviewing channel. Similar to needledrop but without all the hipster. lol
    December 28 03:12 AM
  • silentstar haha, it would make a very nice name. but yeah, I love your lists/reviews/ratings man - always good to know that part of your taste is similar to mine (and to just about everyone apparently!)
    December 24 03:00 AM
  • FearThyEvil This might be a very stupid question and you can choose to answer or not. My friend asked me if I would ever try to become staff on sputnik. While I know that's extremely low it did come into my mind with this question. Do staff make profit or is it more just early releases for music?
    December 24 12:37 AM
  • osmark86 oh well, the album doesn't seem like a grower anyways so I guess it isn't worth investing more time if it didn't strike your fancies. see you dug Shad's latest though. that album was pretty damn solid. seeing as you liked it I think you'd dig yU - the EARN, give it a go mate. criminally underrated.
    December 20 12:34 PM
  • osmark86 dang, didn't like no poison no paradise more than that mate?
    December 19 08:50 AM
  • Azn. Dang, not even top 100? I'm thinking it fills a very specialized niche for post hardcore but not THAT specialized
    December 19 12:38 AM
  • Azn. hey omaha, how was the general staff reaction to A Lot Like Birds? Just curious; would you say it made the top 100?
