  • PalomaYoung Hi, I have read you review for Haruka Nakamura's album "Twilight" and I absolutely love it. I wonder if I could get the authorisation from you to translate it into Chinese and post it on a Chinese music review website? For no commercial purpose, of course.

  • Flugmorph the world is cruel. im on the last stretch of michiko and hatchin btw. im gonna you on mal. as it looks u can't communicate for s*** on discord rip
    August 22 11:48 AM
  • Flugmorph Your arguments on how they are a bad band are ridiculous. Some people on here including you shouldn't even have opinions especially when you guys act like assholes about it. Ironically BSC are doing excellent on tour and are gaining mad respect and recognition from famous vocalists like Corey Taylor. Get reckt bitch.
    August 22 11:34 AM

  • Flugmorph oh boy gotta get onto that, thanks for the tip. Also heard their latest lp tho, not just that one.
    May 22 02:18 PM
  • onionbubs actually have a different idea for a u2 list now. since a lot of their tracklists are pretty incosistent yet they have a lot of stellar b sides itll contain tracklist remixes of like half of their records including a complete reinvention of rattle and hum including a lot of the songs that were kept off the joshua tree
    April 6 02:02 AM
  • onionbubs its got some interesting stuff going on. naturally since brian eno was collaborating with them there was a big ambient influence on the record and it works a lot of the time. corpse and slug are especially good. elvis ate america is maybe the worst song bono ever wrote tho so
    April 3 10:00 PM
  • onionbubs You ever listened to original soundtracks 1?
    April 3 09:28 PM
  • onionbubs a lot of their 2000s stuff has grown off me a lot but occasionally i go through kicks of it. some songs i really like on those albums. micracle drug is one of my all time favorite u2 songs
    April 3 09:09 PM
  • onionbubs digging a **** ton of 90s u2 lately. that 90s list might actually happen someday
    April 3 08:45 PM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist i'm just pulling ur leg lol. how you been buddy?
    March 28 03:06 AM
  • AngryLittleAlchemist
    March 28 01:24 AM
  • Conmaniac damn no I havent. will check tho man thanks!
    March 6 06:05 PM
  • Dylan620 Yeah man, my favorite song by them is on L
    March 3 12:15 PM
  • Dylan620 Really good work dude. Admittedly I disagree with quite a few placements, but it IS the Weakerthans, so it's (almost) all good ;) I'll comment further when the list goes up here on Sput
    March 3 12:38 AM
  • Flugmorph nice dude, ive send you a friend request and am now going to proceed with stalking our mutual ratings lol
    February 28 07:55 AM
  • Flugmorph cantonese cavepaintings. lol you're actually online. do you have a mal account?
    February 27 09:01 PM
  • Flugmorph animus
    February 27 08:42 PM
  • Dewinged I see, it sounds like a live take man, which is cool but I think you should try to get a "closer" feel, you know what i mean? Like having the voice and the main guitar more upfront! Just a thought!
    January 23 08:49 AM
  • Dewinged Hey man, just jammed your album. "This Bus..." def my fav, right down my alley. Did you record your guitar and voice live and then added arrangements?
    January 23 02:07 AM
  • Dewinged Hey Zach, have a free download code man: 4NQQJW-DEPJFCGet it at: am reading here you also make music? Link me to your stuff man, wanna check it out.
    January 23 12:14 AM
  • Conmaniac haha sweet man I'll check is soon man and let ya know
    January 14 05:28 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Cheers man, I'll make sure to shame him. :P Going to give it a listen tonight, and I'll let you know what I think.
    December 17 05:57 AM
  • FullOfSounds Ay no problem. Gonna be revisiting it throughout the week
    December 16 02:09 AM
  • FullOfSounds Feels very intimate too. Great stuff man!
    December 16 01:55 AM
  • FullOfSounds listening to your new alb right now and your singing is incredible. love the stop-start guitar parts
    December 16 01:48 AM
  • Futures alright sweet haha. good luck.
    December 15 09:38 PM
  • Futures i will give it a listen soon man! you should check my latest rev btw. you might dig the album
    December 15 09:33 PM
  • Futures that clarity inspired art tho
    December 15 09:28 PM
  • 50iL Yeah man np! It's actually my fav user project so far tbh. The musicianship was top notch, loved the time signatures too. Kinda reminded me to Sufjan Stevens.
    December 15 07:41 PM
  • onionbubs Native son (an early version of vertigo), levitate, always, mercy, fast cars, and ground beneath her feet are definite highlights from their early stuff. Ground beneath her feet is especially phenomenal i have no idea why it was left off of ATYCLB
    December 14 10:20 PM
  • onionbubs Knowing you're a U2 fan, have you checked any of the b-sides and outtakes from the leave behind and how to dismantle days? Worth a jam
    December 14 06:15 PM
  • Conmaniac hey man finally finished that EP. was really good! Gusts and This Bus is Going to Cavanwere def my favs. vocals were a biiiit shakey at times but really worked on all of these songs so it's easy to look past it and even adds to the personal nature of this EP. haven't had a chance to go through all the lyrics but they seem really well written. only thing is that sometimes songs get too wordy like you're almost trying to cram too much into one track. other than that no complaints was pleasant
    December 14 07:33 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack the mix. Same with the end of Dancing About Architecture; it felt like there was going to be something extra at the end when I heard some atmospheric stuff in the background, which may have been cool. Tracks 1 and 4 probably has the best of everything: solid structures and subtleties, and probably the best vocal performances. Good job man, gonna keep spinning this for a while I think.
    December 12 03:44 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Really enjoyed it man, given it a couple of spins so far. Feels really quite intimate and comforting, and the tenor and essence of the lyrics seems to shine though despite the specific meanings they hold to you being somewhat veiled (which I suspect was by design?). Tracks 1, 2, 4 and 5 where the standouts for me, especially the first and 4th I think. Would have loved it if some of the extra instrumentation you brought in now and then (track 1 being the best example) was a bit more prominent ...
    December 12 03:41 PM
  • Conmaniac listening now (: will report back
    December 12 01:23 AM
  • neekafat Honestly bro, kudos for reaching out, and I'd love to listen!

    December 9 12:53 AM
  • Conmaniac isn't it?? and sweet i'll check them asap! sounds like my kind of thing thanks
    December 8 06:30 PM
  • Conmaniac OOOH damn dude i'm so pumped now to hear it! be sure to send me a link when it drops or i'll prob see it on here in a week anyways haha. and yeah lemme know what you think of it!
    December 8 02:03 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack twas a good album, thoroughly enjoyed it, need to pay more attention to the lyrics but could be a grower
    November 5 08:34 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack damn that sounds right up my street, i'll check it, cheers
    November 5 04:02 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack listened to the first song of that cabs record as its streaming on their band camp, pretty solid stuff, gonna have to buy their album at some point
    October 30 09:52 AM
  • Snake. that random friend request you got was from me
    October 22 01:45 AM
  • Futures good choices. no pass the baby tho? blew me away so unexpected.
    October 22 12:19 AM
  • Futures what are your favs on the new one?
    October 22 12:12 AM
  • Futures a 4 sweeet. t/t man. like holy s***. sounds like motion picture soundtrack by radiohead.
    October 21 11:57 PM
  • Futures new jimmy is a 5.
    October 21 10:38 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack hey man, you should check the new TotorRo record if you get a sec, lovely summer-y mathy stuff
    October 21 07:03 PM
  • Futures oh man i think it's up your ally. you will love it.

    October 7 01:25 AM
  • FullOfSounds ahhhh i can't wait to listen to it
    September 30 07:43 PM
  • FullOfSounds Kodoma is gonna rule hard
    September 26 02:42 AM
  • FullOfSounds Nice Alcest rating man, glad you dug
    September 26 01:39 AM
  • FullOfSounds No prob, and thanks!
    September 22 11:58 PM
  • FullOfSounds great user
    September 22 11:49 PM
  • Futures damn. or just math rock with emotion?
    September 22 08:43 PM
  • Futures yo you got any good math rock/emo recs like ttng's s/t? every math rock band i've listened to has just been kinda lifeless and formulaic but ttng's s/t has that emotion. you get me?
    September 22 08:03 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack yeah man it sounds like it could have been a 2016 release, its nuts.
    September 13 02:42 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Born to Run is so so good man, thanks a bunch for the rec!
    September 13 08:40 AM
  • FullOfSounds It might be a 4.5 after another listen tbh.
    August 28 09:05 PM
  • FullOfSounds Agreed. It has a mix of average and great songs.
    August 28 12:14 AM
  • FullOfSounds Popping in to say you have a good rating on The Bends
    August 28 12:09 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene I have heard all of those, but have never been familiar enough to rate them, so going to listen to Clarity right away and see how it goes. I love TTNG's debut, too, so I'll rate that as well. Thanks a lot! And listened to TWIABP again, and might bump Whenever up and Harmlessness down. :P
    August 27 06:52 AM
  • Futures never saw your opinion on the new jimmy song. what did you think?
    August 26 07:21 AM
  • BlushfulHippocrene Oh, sweet! He mentioned you a while ago, but I never paid much attention and sort of forgot about it. I'll listen to it again and see if my rating changes if you recommend me some cool emo to expand my taste? (Listened to it ages ago and loved it, but tried again and it didn't me as hard, I'll give it another shot soon.)
    August 24 04:49 AM
  • Snake. lol i only got 70% ****
    August 23 02:20 AM
  • onionbubs Nah **** it one list 1991-now then maybe a b sides thing. It pains me that I won't include city of blinding lights on a list but I can fit what I'd want off of dismantle and atyclb on my current draft. Plus, I'm not huge on songs of innocence or no line but I might try to squeeze unknown caller as I've always really enjoyed that track (not so much the rest of the album)
    August 17 02:30 AM
  • onionbubs Gone is def a killer song too. I'm thinking the next parts besides this one will be atyclb-now and b sides cos this band has some of the best b sides
    August 17 02:11 AM
  • onionbubs To be fair this is the first time I've listened to it in a while. Some of the songs are better than I remembered but it's certainly not one of their best
    August 17 02:08 AM
  • onionbubs Pop is one weird record man. Half of it is great and half of it is some of my least favorite u2 songs. And it's so uneven too. Like it starts off with a song I'm not huge on, but I love do you feel loved, then mofo is a weaker track. It's one of the most lopsided albums there is
    August 17 02:05 AM
  • onionbubs Actually no. That one gets played a ton around where I am. It's actually the fly. I mean I'll have to bend that rule with pop cos half the album was freakin singles. But no one really knows any of them outside of like staring at the sun and discotheque
    August 17 01:59 AM
  • onionbubs I'm trying to refrain from using singles because while its in part my top 10 favorites it also serves as 10 songs I think people who aren't too farmiliar should check so I'm trying to stay away from super easy choices like one and stuff. Though there will be at least one single from achtung and it's not one a lot of people seem to talk about for some reason
    August 17 01:54 AM
  • onionbubs I think I may lump rattle and hum into the next part since no cuts made the previous list and there's one specific cut that has grown on me a lot that I plan to add. Ordering the list is difficult man, but ultraviolet so far is my clear 1
    August 17 01:48 AM
  • Conmaniac hahah 3 of those ratings were from albums i listened to this weekend but thanks Ash!
    August 15 11:58 PM
  • Futures thanks a lot dude!
    August 15 10:31 PM
  • Futures got any 2016 recs?
    August 15 10:21 PM
  • Futures love u
    August 15 09:55 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Yeah that's cool, it's not particularly sunny where I'm at, but I'm off to Spain in a week so I'm sure it'll be a more fitting album then.
    August 3 01:20 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack loved it, its like summer in a can
    August 2 10:09 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack Wow you gave it a 5? I'll definitely check it then, thanks for the rec
    August 1 11:44 PM
  • Slex Cheers, appreciate the rec!! Caught me at the perfect time of looking for something new to listen to, checking it out now
    June 16 04:52 AM
  • osmark86 Nice list of 25 fav Thrice tracks. Didn't kniw you made one too. Guesd 25 is the bare minimum amount ^^. Great picks btw, I should've probably included The Great Exchange in mine too. That song is unbelievable. Cheers.
    May 31 09:34 PM
  • Slex I'm a huge Thrice fan and I'm shocked at how easily it's their best release, thank you so much for convincing me to listen to it again
    May 28 01:47 AM
  • Slex SO I listened to Beggars and I definitely just was too young when I last heard it, probably was sulking about it not being heavy after Vheissu. ANYWAYS, it's stunning and easily their best album, it blew me away.
    May 27 06:41 PM
  • AliW1993 Hey man, I'm coordinating this year's user's end of year lists. We're still looking for someone to cover Haken's 'Restoration' EP - would you be up for writing a short blurb within the next few days?
    January 2 10:11 PM
  • Gwyn. i'm curious and i can't stop thinking about it
    March 12 11:34 PM
  • Snake. Well, he also likes Nirvana (, so he probably thinks that they're cool.
    February 27 02:54 AM
  • Snake. Fun Fact: Dale Earnhardt, Jr. follows Brand New on Twitter.
