In this thread tell us the last album (or albums) you listened to. Give it a rating and, if you want, discuss why you liked it.
I guess I'll share a few of the last albums I listened to:
Thy Catafalque - Roka Hasa Radio: 5/5
One of the best '09 metal albums that I have heard. It's really such a wonderful experimental black metal album. The second track is 19 minutes and
has the most awesome break.
Negura Bunget - Maiastru Sfetnic: 5/5
Yeah, this is probably my favourite black metal album ever. The album opens with the track Vrernea Locolui Sortit which pretty much tells you what the
album is about instantly. You know that this is good black metal, 'cause these dudes hail from freakin' TRANSYLVANIA!
Scott Walker - The Drift: 3.5/5
I respect this album. This is the only album that has truely been able to send fear into me. After listening to it several times, there are really
only 2 very creepy tracks, and they're very well written. After that, the initial scare factor disappears and it ends up kinda dragging on. Very
solid avant garde effort, though. Best listened to with the lights off. Not that I have done that.
Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers): 4/5
A lot of people disrespect rap a lot, and often call "rap music" an oxymoron. I used to be one of those guys. Granted, rap isn't my favourite
musical genre, it has many solid features. I'm usually not the type of guy that listens to lyrics when listening to music so rap isn't something
I'm able to adjust to instantly. What I do appreciate, though, are the beats accompanying the music. You just can't ignore the charm of the track
Protect Ya Neck. It's so awesome.
AC/DC - Back in Black: 1/5
You're not Australian if you don't like AC/DC! Well, just as well I'm a New Zealander then, isn't it? Subtle sexual innuendo doesn't do it for me
in music. If you're gonna base your career around it, you may as well just "I WANT TO HAVE SEX!" down the microphone. It's not really the lyrics
that bother me about AC/DC, because as I have said, I don't particularly listen out for lyrics most of the time. I just hate the music. If you asked
me what would be harder to play out of 5 Necrophagist songs and 5 AC/DC songs I'd answer you with "AC/DC". Why? Well, 5 AC/DC songs sound exactly
the same, so it'd be hard to remember exactly how they all go. Anyway, they're a fun act, but I'm like the antithesis of fun.
Ok, now it's your turn!
