musical taste

Dark Millennium Diana Read Peace
I did get through this one but I almost quit. It is rarely truly bad - although the last track is insufferable - and some bits really shine especially in the second half of the record, for instance the super cool tones in the intro of 4 - but the bulk of it is either doomey bore, or okay music over which they try to narrate a musical which I always hate. On the whole 69 minutes (nice) I'd say there are maybe 9 minutes of cool proggy ideas or the odd heavy riffage (like the end of 9), 9 minutes of complete insufferable cringe (soloing etc), and 51 minutes of boring doomdads: the musical. 2.4
Unwound Negated/Said Serial
Track 1 is cool typical Unwound of this era altho the prod underserves it a bit imo, whilst 3 sees unwound play with fun brass. 2 is somewhere in between and I think it works kinda better than 3, but thankfully the tracks are of decreasing run time each time. A cool demo but nothing to really keep imo. 3.3
Mortiis Ånden Som Gjorde Opprør
Yea this is excellent Mortiis material, better produced and better constructed than the prior records. I didn't pay attention to individual tracks particularly since this is one big continuous piece, but it just work as an epic background to go look for dragons in the forest. 3.7
Agnes Obel Myopia
Placeholder soundoff but basically on this one the instrumentals are magnificient, and the vocals often - but not always - get a bit lost in fx and editing which must've been fun to play with but kind of disrupt the musical voyage for me. However it holds its direction better than Citizen did imo. 4.0
Deathspell Omega Infernal Battles
First four tracks are fine, run of the mill black metal that I'm happy to have heard once and would be happy never hearing again. 3.3 sort of stuff, although the fadeout at the end of 3, the first wavey kinda boring 4, and some other clumiser bits tilted it to a 3.2. Then the second half of the record is the demo literally copy pasted with the prod and everything. And it is far cooler, although the album now doesnt really makes sense as a record does it. And it begs the question - why would you ever listen to this and not the demo? The answer is I can't see a reason. Not a bad, but entirely forgettable/pointless, so overall 2.5
The Sound Propaganda
Exam tomorrow no time will write this up later BUT long story short this is not the discography ender I was hoping for and reusing a track from Jeopardy just goes to show this is a band that had run out of steam. 3.3
Slift La Planète Inexplorée
I think this one's less good than the first LP, the frist few tracks are a bit of a dull blur imo despite the rhythm section's best effort, thankfully starting at the 6th track the record does open up to more marking territories. 3.45
