I know a way to stop this silly Civil War... BURGER REVIEW TIME!
Please comment about how stupid this is.
Please reply and tell me if you liked this or not.. it's really important for me to know if stuff like this is useful to anyone... tell me about some music you've heard, etc... :)
I don't mind admitting my tastes in music. I especially don't mind saying that I enjoy music that tends to be a bit weirder than the normal. Hell, one of my favorite albums of this year, The Dirty Projectors "Bitte Orca", is bat-shit insane. Most credible music critic websites tend to go for it as well(as they should). But is it just me, or is the Flaming Lips new CD, Embryonic, a CD that's just filled with noise and unlistenable filler. So many critics are rambling about how inspirational and expressive the album is. Yeah, it's expressive if you count looping a simple guitar/bass rift for about five minutes with an occasional gong going off in the background while Wayne is saying some common bullshit that he usually writes.
The past ten years of Jay-Z's career has been hit or miss. We have the best out of Hove with 2007's "American Gangster" and Jay-Z's first retirement album "The Black Album". The latter of the two might as well be more known for the future "Gray Album" by DJ DangerMouse, but that's a different story. We have also seen Jay-Z's worst with "Kingdom Come" and All of the collaboration albums with R Kelly. The Blueprint 3 is Jay-Z's latest attempt and falls somewhere in between his best work and his worst work. It's nothing to pass off, as it defaults to one of the best hip-hop albums of the year, but it's nothing that anyone should get to excited over either.
After this week, I've been going back and forth throughout the beatles catalog like I have never before. Playing through Rock Band has let me gain a new appreciation for most of the beatles work. Harmonix has totally given us something much better and much more loving than any documentary could ever do. So going back and forth, I'd just like to point out some of my new favorites.
Maxwell's Silver Hammer - Actually, I loved this song way before Beatles Rock Band came out. Due to a flash on newgrounds.com(that website ran by the Behemoth guys). The flash kinda perfectly captures the brilliant mix of playful, fun rhythm and delivery with some very psychotic, creepy characters that could definantly drive the story of a horror movie.... It's a less praised song, but I absolutely love it.
for question of the week... on my third take of the song(I didn't have time for more because I had to go to class)
There's gonna be a Giant Bomb tonight
Ok, lets get some music discussion going.
The best part about "It's Blitz!" is that it was completely unnecessary to change the sound of previous works from the YYY's. From the last two albums/EP's they put out, 2006's "Show Your Bones", and 2007's "Is Is", The YYY's proved that they have one of the most talented guitar/drums duo in music today in Nick Zinner and Brian Chase. These two have provided some of the most enjoyable guitar riffs and experimental drum breakdowns of this decade.
