| ||J. Robbins Un-Becoming|
Sounds like a continuation of what J. Robbins has been doing in his other groups, but to me it's getting a bit stale. He's clearly a talented guy, but he doesn't seem to be pushing his self much in terms of songwriting. It's fine, but it also doesn't pull at the brain strings, if you know what I mean. Not only that, but this album is mastered too loud, which doesn't help things. Not to say the sound quality is terrible, but it's not really that enjoyable to turn up the volume. You'd think J. would know better considering he's a producer and obviously a musician...
| ||Pile Green and Gray|
A pretty good album from Pile, but hampered by poor production and mastering.

| ||Black Mountain Destroyer|
Terribly mastered - sounds like garbage. Music is pretty bland, too.
| ||Slow Mass On Watch|
First half is really strong, but the latter half isn't quite as compelling. I do commend them for the dynamic/quiet mastering, though the drums are a little duller sounding than ideal and production overall could be improved some. I could see them benefitting from Albini's production. Anyway, it's nice to find music like this in this day and age.
|xxm You are welcome.|
|xxm You have some great taste and some nice shoutbox posts my friend.|
|oWhoadYo randomly stumbled upon your profile while looking at Built To Spill's There Is No Enemy, and me and you have super similar tastes in rock, and just music as a whole, and I love it. i didn't intend for this to be a plug for my band, but you like all of our influences and stuff, i bet you'd like us. our name is Elemantra, we're on spotify and in the database. Regardless, your taste is great and its almost uncanny|
|WatchItExplode We've got a lot of overlap... I need to go through your ratings again and pick out some stuff I haven't heard|
