musical taste

favorite bands
Feeder Polythene
If there ever was a category of "grunge pop" (grunge that's not as mopey and more uplifting [i.e. poppy]), then this is such an album. Reminds me of Third Eye Blind actually.
Dispatch Silent Steeples
Credited that this album has some great tracks (ex: 1, 3, 7, 11, and 12), especially the harmonizing vocals, I cannot help but hear how the instrumentals just don't compliment most of the songs. There're moments where they have jamming sessions that could par alongside I Mother Earth's discography, but most of the album featured sub-par (repetitive) lyrics alongside instrumentals that (from my impression) COULD'VE sounded better than some of the early Red Hot Chili Peppers' music. Even so, this sound comes off as an energetic jam rock, folk hybrid of an album. Hopefully their second album is better.
Cobalt Gin
Sunna One Minute Science
An industrial album that manages to stay trapped in between its two extremes of the industrial spectrum, atmospheric/unsettling and blaring/intensive. I think this album could've managed to have done either strongly, but instead we're featured an album w/ a variety of instrumental sections that're relatively dull (as opposed to blaring) and atmospheric sections that lose their intimidation after so much repetition. Still a nice album, but again it could've been better... Tracks 3, 5, 8, 9 and 10 serve as my highlights for this album.
Moloko Statues
Hooray! Aside from my personal (audible) stumbles of tracks 1 and 3, I found an electronica album that manages to sound solid from beginning to end.
Moloko Things to Make and Do
Some points from "dont dig dancehall" are accurate: some tracks certainly go on for too long and do eventually wear out their welcome. Indigo, Remain the Same (even being short), Dumb Inc, Somebody Somewhere, and If You Have A Cross (again, another short one) are prime examples. Tracks 2, 5, 9, 12, and 18 (NOT THE REMIX) are my highlights for this album.
Moloko I Am Not A Doctor
A tad more cohesive than compared to their Do You Like My Tight Sweater? effort. In that, I mean the interludes are separate from the main tracks (organized filler), and the tracks take the time to dabble in various orientations of electronica. However, at the cost of their trip-hop elements welcomes tracks that feature techno and house elements. Some tracks come off as stale (ex: Pretty Bridges), and that take away from this album's focus as a trip-hop record (IF that was this album's purpose). However, I would still listen to this over their first album.
