At the risk of sounding un-grungy...

Post by incessantmace » Tue Jan 11, 2011 1:32 am

...but I've just had my first listen of a complete Tad album (8 Way Santa), and apart from parts of Helot and Satan's Chainsaw it didn't do that much for me. Guess it's the combination of the vocals and the not-too-great variety of the riffs. Sorry folks, have fun with Tad, but this is not the band for me *shrugs*

I am with you on this. I could never get into TAD. I like the songs you mentioned and Wood Goblins but thats about it. As you say the vocals dont do anything for me and the riffs are uninspired.

I quite like TAD, but they're not my favorite by any stretch of the imagination. I listen to them a fair amount and I DO get something from it, though.

Well, I have on my computer 8 way santa, but I must admit, I haven't listened to it ever. All the TAD song's that I've heard (not many) are ok, but can't remember names or anything.
I come from a country of northern lights, lightless days and nightless nights.
I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.

8 Way Santa is good. But their LPs are phanominal!!!!!!!!!!! Pick up Salt Like and God's Balls, they're probably the best thing to ever hit your ear drums. Just pure heaven spewing out of your speakers, amazing!

Try out the album Inhaler... Tad's vocals got a lot better, and the production makes it a little easier to listen to. It's one of my favorite albums, and probably the best one to start out with.

Totally agree. The muddy production and barking vocals on 8 Way snata (and others) ensure that I don't listen to them much either. But Inhaler is a quality album from start to finish with some great songwriting. Luminol is a particular favourite but they are all fantastic.

And if you get into Inhaler, chances are you'll probably like 8-Way Santa a little more if you listen to it again. There are some fantastic songs on there, like 3-D Witch Hunt. It reminds me of Nirvana's poppier songs.

once Tad Doyle said something like: "I'm a FAT man who makes Fat music".
They have a greasy sound.
Try to listen other albums and you'll understand their style!!
As sodajerk93 says Inhaler is the easier to listen to, try it
