  • BlushfulHippocrene Hello, take a look at the contribs forum if you can. (:
    January 2 11:43 PM
  • WatchItExplode The heavy Madder Mortem songs are like 4.5 and the ballads are excruciating, like 1.5. I settled on a 3.

  • Bloon Is your forum pic seriously blackface? Wtf
    June 29 04:11 PM
  • Frippertronics From the records I've heard (Eight Miles High to Switch), I find their career trajectory very interesting. Moontan is probably the best of the bunch, but the 1970 self-titled is close behind. Very Focus-influenced hard rock stuff on those 1970-72 albums.

  • Nocte I forgot to say man, thanks for keeping the Sensory alive.
    April 4 11:01 AM
  • Nocte I did, but I?ll revisit when I get out of this tired funk I?m in. Can?t wait for a day off work. Hoping it?s got some room to grow
    April 2 01:46 AM
  • Nocte : [ sad face it is then lol how?s everything your part of the world
    February 28 12:19 AM
  • Nocte Still your 3/5 makes me sadface lol
    February 28 12:07 AM
  • Nocte Why you no like Usurpress. Much sadness
    February 27 04:40 AM
  • Nocte Does italics and bold and URL links etc
    February 23 05:33 AM
  • Nocte link looks good, just bb code it : ]
    February 21 11:56 PM
  • Nocte It?s good to be back, thanks bro
    February 2 03:34 AM
  • Nocte Certainly, and with life so demanding it?s not like we can re-write the same lines 1000 times to ensure a perfect sentence.
    January 31 10:47 PM
  • Nocte Make that 6 reviews lol. Yeah I know what you mean - just got to shake off the rust.
    January 31 10:24 PM
  • Nocte Well I?m pretty refreshed, I think I?ve already popped 5 reviews up here this year. I had my break and found a balance for my real life so hopefully I?ll get my contrib tag back lol
    January 31 09:34 PM
  • Nocte Hey man how?s things?
    January 31 11:25 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 You told Jom?
    January 8 03:47 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Alright man. Just double checking if you're doing that blurb? The top 50 list starts publishing tomorrow, that's all.
    January 8 06:07 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Yo! You checked out the contrib thread in the community section of the site? We need you to check out the top 50 list bud
    January 1 01:30 AM
  • Jom I sent you an e-mail but received a bounce-back. Is there a better way to write you?
    December 21 06:17 PM
  • Frippertronics thanks. I'm doing this mainly for the band's facebook group, which the band (past and present) are involved in and I figured since it's been 22 years since a compilation of this type has been released, it'd be logical enough to it for the fans of today.
    July 17 10:00 PM
  • Frippertronics with the vaguest of blessings from the higher ups, i am putting together a compilation and would like fans to vote, including u
    July 17 09:23 PM
  • teamster Enjoying Foscor. Great little write up and I agree.
    July 13 08:40 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit i appreciate you rating my last album i did with my band count to altek. ive just released a new ep under my other project king green if you have any interest -
    February 15 08:40 PM
  • zaruyache I casually listened to some of it and I'm pretty sure they ripped off actual sunbather parts, too :3
    November 23 07:53 PM
  • zaruyache Cheq new nullingroots? I saw you liked their last one and they have a new one out.
    November 23 03:54 AM
  • TheBrutalMaster Hey man, if you have time, you could write a review for my band's latest album!
    December 20 03:26 PM
  • Jots drop into the contrib forum when you get a chance
    December 7 05:20 AM
  • Frippertronics Yeah, the album itself is pretty good ambient. Though in the 80s/90s when the band had their stuff reissued on the Mantella label, they often tacked on random tracks. The Touch Me/Six Pieces albums had the two versions of Joined by The Heart, The Spell had a live version of Fand, etc.
    July 26 02:31 AM
  • Frippertronics Well, Reverberations is not an Enid track, it's a solo piece by Godfrey from the Reverberations tape. A good tune, but not Enid.
    July 25 03:56 PM
  • Frippertronics You've heard up to Something Wicked This Way Comes, right? I forget.
    July 25 10:07 AM
  • Frippertronics I'll give it another try later because I got my old reviews of the first twod by request - though having Region on the front page is a sure sign of what happened. You'd probably convince them better than me, but whatever happens happens. It'd be a good way to get more traffic on the band's sput page or whatever by spreading out the reviews to their right spots
    July 25 10:05 AM
  • Frippertronics Hi, just wanted to let you know I requested your Enid reviews to be moved to their rightful spots (since you reviewed the remakes of the first two albums, and not exactly the originals). Hopefully, you're fine with this development as I'm going to do some edits to the band page in the coming month.
    July 25 05:37 AM
  • Frippertronics dunno if you noticed this. only have White Goddess/Journey's End/Invicta and I'm all set for the new album.
    July 23 11:37 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie The Blues is my fav genre man :D
    June 24 10:27 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Yeah man, Gary is probably the most emotional guitarist I have ever heard.
    June 24 10:10 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie it's a bit all over the place considering the fact that I hadn't play this for 2-3 years, but i tried to do my best
    June 24 09:55 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie
    June 24 09:54 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie It's great to see you digging Gary Moore's music. Cheers man !
    June 24 09:34 PM
  • Voivod Hi man, I'm not thinking about reviewing both albums right now, be my guest :-)
    June 14 05:16 PM
  • manosg Thanks Robert, glad to be on the team!
    April 15 06:11 AM
  • Jots sup man. I think the mods are sorta putting a kibosh on staff/contribs posting reviews in 2 places - thought I'd give you a heads up
    March 2 04:45 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert, if you like Candlemass or Epic Doom in general, you might love these guys: Sermon/64352/
    February 23 04:39 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks, brother.
    February 21 04:45 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert, didn't you apply for one of the staff positions ?
    February 20 02:47 PM
  • Frippertronics hey, i was wondering about your reviews of the first two Enid albums. The material you reviewed was different, as you wrote about the 80s remakes, which makes some points in them kind of irrelevant (like any mention of Francis Lickerish, who wasn't on the remakes)
    January 19 12:40 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie It would be interesting to see what points you will raise with that review and the reasons you rated it so high. I couldn't give this nothing more than a 3.5.
    November 18 11:55 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Nah, I can't promise I could write one anytime soon, now with Cathedral's discog my hands are full atm
    November 18 11:52 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Robert, will you review "Suspended at Aphelion" ?
    November 18 01:14 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie That's very productive man, I hope to see you becoming staff one day
    October 12 02:59 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Do you write reviews for other sites as well ?
    October 12 11:36 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert how you've been ? holy ****ing Christ, 151 reviews in four years. That's really something. Keep up the good work man.
    October 11 02:56 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Congrats on 150 reviews, man!
    October 6 06:27 PM
  • ScuroFantasma congrats on that lighning fast feature man

    February 11 06:10 PM
  • Crysis Congratulations on the promotion man, keep it m/
    February 11 03:26 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Robert sup ? I was so looking forward to seeing you getting promoted. Out of all the guys who applied, you deserved it the most. Congrats man, you are a great asset to this site.
    February 11 02:50 PM
  • tempest-- Awesome, good luck dude. I really hope you get it :D
    January 25 12:40 AM
  • tempest-- Hey man, are you intending on applying for contributing reviewer?
    January 24 10:06 PM
  • Voivod ok thanks mate!
    January 8 11:25 PM
  • Voivod I saw your soundoff about the new Tad Morose album, are you thinking of reviewing it? I'm asking because I have written a review already, which will be posted during the next few days, if all go well.
    January 8 10:37 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Happy new year Robert, wish you all the best.
    December 31 07:28 PM
  • Calc no, thank you sir
    May 9 10:31 PM
  • Ecnalzen Thanks! I am looking forward to it.
    May 8 09:36 PM
  • Nocte Welcome to the team! Ive sent you the email
    May 6 12:30 PM
  • Nocte All i need is an email address for the invite, and a facebook add to get you on the staff page
    May 6 07:14 AM
  • Nocte Awesome! They don't have to be new albums, we even have a 'retro' category for album 10plus years old. And the minimum is three a month, which extends to news, streams and interviews as well : ]
    May 6 07:13 AM
  • Nocte youd be an asswst dude, let me know if you want in : )
    May 5 12:11 PM
  • Hoppoman Yeah I do, apart from one or two from the 1980s. Which I might get by the time I get around to reviewing that time period.
    April 12 01:32 PM
  • Voivod That's what I thought too when I applied for contrib and staff and reviewing is a hobby for me too, it's just that i scrutinize everything so my reviews ended up worth reading.
    February 24 05:06 PM
  • greg84 I totally understand you, but it's nice to be appreciated from time to time, isn't it? Anyway, I definitely support you and wish you all the best.
    February 24 04:32 PM
  • greg84 Thanks a lot. You were actually on my shortlist. Shame you didn't make it. Keep on writing and cover one new release or two from time to time.
    February 24 04:16 PM
  • Voivod Thanks man. Don't stop the effort, keep writing and that contrib status will be a safe bet.
    February 24 03:07 PM
  • Jethro42 Yeah both bands play folk, but BN are more Celtic, and MA are widely influenced by Pink Floyd, as you can see. Plus Heather Findlay has such a beautiful voice.
    February 22 01:44 AM
  • Jethro42 Yes I personally discovered both Blackmore's Night and Mostly Autumn at the same time, and I found myself abandoning Blackmore's Night, cos I prefered MA over it.
    February 21 09:12 PM
  • Eclecticist No problem!
    February 17 10:32 PM
  • Eclecticist Email: (the owner of TAR). In your email, a) introduce yourself, b) mention that you were recommended by me (Joshua Hummel), c) tell a little about yourself, d) include some URL's of what you think are your best reviews, and lastly e) say why it is that you review albums and what it is you seek to gain by becoming a part of TAR's staff writing team.
    February 17 05:24 PM
  • Eclecticist let me know
    February 17 04:58 PM
  • Eclecticist Hey dude I read some of your reviews, including the Benediction one that you posted yesterday, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing for The Alternative Review? You'd be required to review brand new albums within 2 weeks of their release but you seem very apt at writing in general so I don't believe that this would be a problem.
    February 17 07:14 AM
  • greg84 It's a bit too late now. The voting closed last weak. Cheers.

    October 15 08:54 PM
  • undertakerpt because you have my name, but spealt lazily
    October 15 06:26 PM
  • undertakerpt Where you from man?

    September 30 08:12 PM
  • LarryArms we prefer the term mentally disabled feller
    September 30 06:45 PM
  • LarryArms gayest year ever 2011 is for pussies
    September 30 06:34 PM
  • TheNotrap Yeah 'Subterranea' is really an awesome work. IQ is one of the most underrated UK bands of the past 30 years. And thanks for your kind comment on Marillion's review.
    July 23 04:33 PM
  • TheNotrap Sweet news man. The concept is very cinematographic, so with the right director, actors and budget, it has everything to become a great movie. Thanks for info man.
    July 14 09:48 PM
  • TheNotrap Your review didn't deserve a neg man. Stay true.
    May 28 11:48 PM
  • greg84 Believe it or not, but some people specialize in this stuff.
    March 15 03:39 PM
  • greg84 Hmm. I actually looked it out at message boards and figured out what happened. UhhKris has reported your ratings to the mods for some strange reason. Sadly, you can't bring them back. I'd be furious too if I were you.
    March 15 12:07 AM
  • greg84 Hmm. What happened to your ratings dude?
    March 14 12:14 PM
  • Xenophanes well it leaked and it's kinda lame : [
    February 28 06:02 AM
  • Xenophanes So did the new Terrorizer leak or is that an anticipation rating?
    February 21 03:23 AM
  • greg84 I like your Dixie Witch rating. You seem to be the only one user to check this out apart from me. Keep on rocking!
