I Brought Bullets, You Bring Some Asprin

Posted : 9 years, 7 months ago on 27 February 2008 10:41 (A review of I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love)

No matter how many times I listen to this album, all the songs after "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" sound way too similar for my liking.
One of the main reasons I love My Chemical Romance is because of their unique sounds and styles on "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" and "The Black Parade".

At first, listening to the album I only like the instrumental "Romance", but after listening to the others over and over again "Honey..." and "Vampires..." joined as the highlights of the album. The other tracks are merely okay and I could care less about.

The 5 Tracks I got to like:
Romance
Vampires Will Never Hurt You
Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough for the Two of Us
Drowning Lessons
Headfirst for Halos

Candy + ??? = Album

Posted : 9 years, 7 months ago on 27 February 2008 10:20 (A review of Candyass)

The only reason this album is not rated a half of a star is Blue Monday.
In fact, that song is the very reason I got this album. I heard it on the radio and got the album, thinking, "Hey, if the others songs are even half as good as Blue Monday, it'll be great."

The thing was, the other songs aren't worth beans (Pinto beans to be exact). There is nothing remarkable or likable about the rest of the album, it was if all of Orgy's energy points were put into making Blue Monday a hit and the rest got the scraps.

Anyways, enough of my ranting, here you go with...

The Only Top Track of Candyazz:
Blue Monday


(This might be the only album I haven't found 5 decent tracks on)

Icon of Coolness

Posted : 9 years, 8 months ago on 26 January 2008 07:00 (A review of Machines Are Us)

This was the first album I got from these guys, and it's hands down their best. I heard of them from the remix they did for VNV Nation's Genesis CD. I have all of their stuff now, and love it.

They are similar to VNV in sound, but are unique in style. They have heavy bass-pounding beats, fast paced tones, and even a few softer, slower songs.

Andy LaPlegua has a great voice, and is in another band that I'm looking at getting called Combichrist.

Posted : 9 years, 9 months ago on 4 January 2008 02:15 (A review of Jack Frost)

Comment from guy on IMDB I just HAD to share:

"I'm a 32 year old guy and I simply cannot watch this movie. Why? Because it's too emotional. I cry so many times before the end credits roll. Maybe it's because I can relate so well to what Charlie is going through. When I was 10, my uncle died in a gardening accident on Easter Sunday, and I thought I had lost him forever. The following year, he came back as the easter bunny. Just like Charlie, I had trouble believing it was really him when the giant rabbit in the garden started talking to me, but eventually it became obvious that it really was my uncle.

Anyone who says this movie is stupid has clearly not experienced this sort of thing in their own life. For months, I carried that my uncle rabbit around, talking to him, and yes, people thought I was insane. When we finally cooked him for dinner last night, it broke my heart.
Like most movies, it's hard to fully appreciate Jack Frost if you haven't lived it."

Hmmmm...

Posted : 9 years, 11 months ago on 7 November 2007 04:43 (A review of Shadowland)

This was Dark Moor's first CD. When I got this band, I had planned to listen to their stuff in the order they made it, but this CD was accidentally put down as 2005.

On the other two albums, I was amazed by the lead singer's voice, and how he could reach such range. In fact on some of the songs, I thought he sounded like a woman.

When researching this CD, I was surprised to find out that it was a female lead. (I guess that makes my other review's comment about them being a brother band to Nightwish wrong)

This album wasn't as good as their next efforts, but had 3 good songs which are at the top of my....

...5 songs that were better than the others:
Calling On the Wind
Magic Land
Born In the Dark
Shadowland
Flying

Newest Roach is Good

Posted : 9 years, 11 months ago on 7 November 2007 04:37 (A review of The Paramour Sessions)

I know people who think this album doesn't live up to Papa Roach's other stuff, but that's not how I feel.

This album had great music and lyrics, and the explicitness was easily edited out.

(From '...To Be Loved')
"Listen up, turn it up and rock it out
party on, I wanna hear you scream and shout"

The 5 paramount tracks:
No More Secrets
...To Be Loved
Alive (N' Out Of Control)
Crash
Roses On My Grave

Pretty Good

Posted : 10 years, 1 month ago on 10 September 2007 04:25 (A review of EVANESCENCE "Origin" CD by BIGWIG, 11 tracks)

Not as good as their future albums, but a good attempt none the less. They redid some of the songs on this album in their next one, and I must say the later versions were better IMO. Her voice is great tho...

5 tracks that I liked:
Imaginary (this old version was good)
Away from Me
Where Will You Go
Field of Innocence
Eternal
