Re: What are you currently listening to?

Bruce Springsteen, “Point Blank”
He’s deep is Bruce. When you’re that bizarre combination of slightly drunk, tired, sentimental, wondering where the time went, and a thousand other things, there is something about this song that truly reaches out.

Re: Your top ten :)

At the present time, my list is looking like this! —— 8: CONCRETE BLONDE- - for the passionate, beautiful and ever soulful female vocals of Johnette Napolitano — because of their sophisticated storytelling detailing the dark side of life in the Western world 7: THIN LIZZY -- for marring a raw aesthe...

Re: Joy Division

I have chanced upon this thread — from time to time I really enjoy their music. I own Unknown Pleasures — and what I have enjoyed about listening to Joy Division is, first and foremost, the sheer amount of unrelenting emotion that Curtis puts behind every performance in his repertoire — they are inc...

Re: Kurt Cobain's View Of Alice In Chains?

Contrary to the above, Kurt loved Alice in Chains -- this is what Jerry Cantrell has said anyway, about the time he encountered Kurt Cobain in Rio in 1993 -- My presumption, therefore, is that Kurt was talking about Facelift as "macho-metal", whereas they moved away from metal and to unrelenting gru...

Re: Any reason why I can't watch "I Stay Away" online anymore?

In an ideal world, nobody would be allowed access to music online -- or at the absolute most, people would be able to do so only to a limited extent. It is hypocritical, very, and more-so controversial, I have explored my own musical fandom as a teenager through YouTube and similar sites as I know h...

Re: Strawberry Switchblade

I'm learning to play Strawberry Switchblade acoustically at this time -- I don't own any of their albums, however they are a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. I enjoy how they write seemingly poppy songs about nuclear annihilation, and make sort-of oriental, gothic indie-pop presence work for them. -...

Re: Name 1 good song from a band you hate!

I famously rate KoRn as my least favourite band ever — I wish I could like them but I cannot win a war with my own ears — but even I thought that they played very strongly indeed on MTV-Unplugged in 2007, and that their cover of “Creep” was actually outstanding. It was definitely a song which suited...

Re: Thoughts On Metallica

I remember Alice in Chains ripped off Dazed and Confused with Hate to Feel. Realizing that was one of my first Alice in Chains memories. Naw, Alice didn't "rip-off" D&C for Hate to Feel. The chord progression is borrowed, but the similarities go no further -- different chorus, structure, V.Ms, styl...

Re: Smells Like Teen Spirit has over 1 Billion views

In a year and a half here, I have scarcely expressed my feelings for Smells Like Teen Spirit. It holds an important place in my heart, and the catharsis that both Nirvana and Butch Vig captured in equal measures definitely digs deep with one’s own teenage alienation, which I suppose is how many of u...

Re: Lame things bands do on stage...pet peeves

Bring their political views into their performances :roll: -- Thankfully, few bands are so egotistical and entitled -- but there's a massive difference between integrating one's opinions into their music; which is artistic and intelligent... and yelling about your opinions on stage, because that isn...

Re: What Was the Last Movie You Watched?

The Deer Hunter, from 1978. It is strange, seeing as I'm very interested in the Vietnam War I should in theory have seen it a thousand times by now, yet this was the first time I ever got around to watching it. I enjoyed it to a considerable extent. It is a profound epic with a detailed realism of b...

Re: Bush

Bush have a new album out. It is called The Kingdom. — Having heard a few tracks from it, I must say that I am rather agnostic about it. It is Heavy, which I like, although it is a strange record. but There were solid riffs throughout, but Bullet Holes left a lot to be desired that was either mispla...
