Rush - Moving Pictures



Track Listing:

1. Tom Sawyer
2. Red Barchetta
3. YYZ
4. Limelight
5. The camera eye
6. Witch hunt (Part III of Fear)
7. Vital signs



Album Review:
OOoooh yes. A Rush album. This is the album that really got me listening to Rush. I'm a little new to them sadly. I wish I could have found out about them earlier. Their sounds are so clean. They vocals are great. Not to mention the drummer I would kill to be. Critics say this band is quote "Humorous and boring and pretentious" Well what do I have to say to the critics? Blow me. This band is great. Although I did find out about them in a sort of "lame" way. So heres the story. The first time I heard a song from Rush was when I was playing Guitar Hero. Yes ladys and gentlemen....Guitar Hero. But hey everyone has to learn some where. Anyways. The first song I heard was YYZ then Tom Sawyer then Working Man. After I heard those songs I was like "WOW! This band is not half bad." So I ran to the mall and picked up this CD. I have spent countless nights listening to it. I just put it in and listen to it to fall asleep. No I don't fall asleep because it is boring, I fall asleep because the sounds are just so soothing. I don't think there is any vocalist that can top the vocals of Rush. Anyways, if you have never heard Rush you must live in a cave. (like I was). So check out their songs Tom Sawyer,Working Man,and YYZ. YYZ is the greatest work of art I have ever heard. It's an enlightening instramental that you could listen too on a bad day that would make you "perk" up. I would rate this album a 9/10 because I really disapprove of short albums. I would rather them have put about 13 songs on than just 7, this being because I want to here more Rush for my money.

Album Review:
AWwwwwWWwww yeahhhhhhya. This is a magnificent album from the metalcore band Killswitch Engage. This band has everything that a metalhead would want. Mosh pits,beer chugging,and hardcore vocals. I only really got into this band about 3 months ago. This album really changed my out look on them. Before I knew really who they were they were just another metal band thats it just another metal act. But how I came across this album is: I was bored at school so I was looking for some Trivium music. My search led me to the Roadrunner Records homepage. After about an hour of listening to the same Trivium songs I said "Awww. What the hell, I'll give Killswitch a chance." And man was I amazed. The reasons I was amazed are first off this band has everything a metalhead would want as I stated earlier. Second, a black man in the metal world was not known of. I think it is amazing that the band changed lead singers and got even better. I mean the old Killswitch was pretty good from what I hear. (Listen to the song "My last serenade." It's a great song that ironicly was wrote by the old lead singer when he was going to leave the band. But man what about the songs? My favorite song on here would have to be "This is Absolution". It's a great song that you should really give a listen. I rate this album a 8/10, I rate it an 8 because I don't really like when they sing "Normally". It is'nt that appealign to me. Anyways my rate is actually really good. How could I rate them any lower with crowds the size of the one in this video. The song in the video is "This is Absolution". Also they have so pretty good lyrics. Here's a sample. They are from the song "My Last Serenade."

from sorrow to serenity, the truth is absolution
from sorrow to serenity, it's on your head
this is my last serenade
I feel you as you fall away
this is my last serenade
from yourself you can't run away

Album Review

Well since my little vacation I have wrote a couple review in my notebook. Yes, I have a notebook just for MusicBanter album reviews. I have about 5 album reviews I need to post but the notebook is at home and i'm at school. The album review is coming right out of my head. I've had no rough draft or anything, so let's see how I do.

Dommin is a great band out of Roadrunner Records. This album came out in early 2009 as a digital single. This band will keep you sitting down and listening to it. I'm not really into the "gothic rock" genre but this band has definatly changed my outlook on the genre. I will now try to look for more bands like this one. The first time I heard this band was when I was trying to find somewhere I could listen to Killswitch Engage. My school blocks Youtube and Last.Fm. So my search landed me on Roadrunenr Records homepage. I was scrolling through the artists that are in this record label and a picture of the band Dommin popped up. I can't believe i'm going to admit this but I kind of like Elvis. What does this have to do with anything? Well the lead singer on the album looked like Elvis to me. So a little light in my head click and said " well he looks like him, I wonder if he sounds like him." Sadly he did'nt. But I was not at a total loss. This band was great. I could'nt believe it. I don't really like when bands "cry" so to speak when they are making music but this band is allowed. Why? Well they are good at it. In my opinion this band is "The sound of the broken hearted." Anyways, I think you shoudl definatly give this band a listen, because I'm going to rate them a 10/10. Whatever band can make a break-up song that's actually good. Deserves a 10/10. Click the below link to listen to the song I speak of.

Album Review

Man I just can't get enoughe of the bands coming out of Roadrunner Records. All of the bands in that label are just amazing. This time I come at you with a band that is a little diffrent from a gothic metal band. Nightwish is a Finnish band that has been gone for 3 years. While they were gone they were putting together this amazing album. This band is very diffrent from alot of the others. It has beautiful melodic piano peices mixed with hardcore guitar riffs. The one thing that sticks out alo though is the lead singer. The lead singer is a female. Yes a women is rocking out in a melodic metal band, and man does she really ROCK! Her voice is something like a little taste of heaven. It's so beautiful i can't get enoughe of it. This band along with Dommin have sealed my fate with gothic metal. I love it. I'll give you a little bio on this band. Nightwish is a symphonic power metal (I call it melodic metal) band that formed in Kitee,Finland in 1996. The have sold more than 5 milluion CD's worldwide. They have released 7 studio albums and plan to release an 8th soemtime next year. I really think you guys should check out this band. They are amazing. They are that kind of band that when you listen to them you get tingly inside. I rate this album a 10/10 because a women that rocks that hard deserves every 10 in the world. Below is a sample of a song off this CD. Give it a listen you won't be dissapointed.
