musical taste

favorite bands
Molly Hatchet Flirtin' With Disaster
I was confused at first since I thought the 'Molly Hatchet' was the name of the singer, didn't realize it was a band. But nonetheless, awesome. There were only a couple tracks I thought were really awesome and worth keeping on my iPod (which is good, since I have limited space for songs), but still the rest were definitely great. I wish I had one with more than 6GB of space so I didn't have to cut songs like that. Whiskey Man, Boogie No More, Flirtin' with Disaster, and Long Time were the ones I decided to keep.
Lynyrd Skynyrd Second Helping
Let it be known that I am very tired of Sweet Home Alabama. After hearing it approximately 453,462,721 times in my life I can't honestly say I enjoy listening to it. So I'm glad they got that out of the way first. It had me a little cynical about the rest of the album since I've heard it more than I Gotta Feeling, Tik Tok, and Teenage Dream combined times ten, but the rest was much more pleasant to sit through. I loved Workin' for MCA, and Don't Ask Me No Questions and The Needle and the Spoon were awesome as well. It's also worth noting that I like Simple Man as well, though I'm not sure what album that's from.
Against Me! New Wave
This one interested me because the lead singer, Tom Gabel, identified as transgender recently and plans to transition to living as a woman. Their next album is going to feature her as Laura Jane Grace and is called Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Hearing what they're like now and how masculine his voice is, I'm really curious to hear that album and what it'll be like. That out of the way, I was pleasantly surprised by the album. I don't know a whole lot of punk rock bands, but Tom seems to have a pretty unique singing style/voice. That plus the fact that his intelligence shows makes it hard not to like this stuff. I like what he talks about. The
Adam Lambert Trespassing
This is what his first album should've been. So much attitude, such a freaking powerful voice. This is the Adam Lambert that should have been. It's obvious so much more work was putting into this, and after the last album I'm glad the critics agree. The dance songs have all the attitude and uniqueness needed for them to stand out among a pop soundscape that prides itself on generic club tracks, and the slower songs have more emotion and integrity than most of his contemporaries could muster from all of their being.
Linkin Park Minutes to Midnight
I only own this CD because a friend gave it to me for free. It should be noted that I really do not like Chester's screaming. I really enjoy his singing, but his screaming does not sound very good because he sounds so wimpy when he does it. Also to my displeasure, this CD is censored. I would much prefer if it was just Mike Shinoda rapping and Chester singing. As a whole I think the album's pretty mediocre, but I adore Shadow of the Day. I love the production and Chester's voice. Hands Held High is all Mike and is a nice downtempo rap song. Valentine's Day has a nice melody, this is the kind of rock they should do (and Breaking the Habit, lov
Blackfoot Strikes
I was coming off being in dance music mode so at first I was kind of bored, but then I started to snap out of it and I restarted the album actually able to focus on it. I'm glad I did, because I really loved it afterwards. Road Fever, Wishing Well, Train, Train and Highway Song were easily my favourites. I wish I hadn't delayed that so damn long, I didn't realize I'd like it so much. Lots of win in this album.
Bal-Sagoth Starfire Burning Upon the Ice-Veiled Throne
First, the raspy growls the main 'singer' does does not appeal much to me at all. I don't mind the voice itself, but he always punctuates it with random growls that make me think he's Baraka from Mortal Kombat and it's kind of off-putting. That aside, I love everything else. I love love the instrumentals, it's a lot more than just pounding away at a guitar and shredding to see how fast you can play it. There's a real quality to it that enhances what's being sung or said. Which brings me to the second thing I love: the writing. It plays out a lot like telling a story, and the music does a great job of enhancing the mood. The lyrics are fantast
