Bono is a pretentious idiot. Does he really think that George Bush or any other world leader takes him or his SH!TSTAIN sidekick Bob Geldof seriously??

The

Eels - A Double Album in which a good 50% of the songs weren't crap. That in itself is a rarity. Being in my book better than anything else they've ever released was even more of a bonus.

Sigur Rós- A posing type told me that now they're on a major label their records will start to suck. She was wrong, but she wasn't going to buy it anyway.

Stars- I liked this one a lot. The first track on its own was worth me buying it for.

Sufjan Stevens- He won't manage to write albums for all 50 states as good as the first two. But he's started off pretty damn well.

The

Foo Fighters- He suckered me again, told me that this was the best record they'd ever made. Dave, you were lying. Again.

Probably the only record that really disappointed me, I tended to do a lot more listening before buying this year than normal.

I think Silent Alarm - Bloc Party was a pretty good album of last year.
As was Frances The Mute - Mars Volta.
Darkness just SUCK. 'nuff said :]
MCR album isn't great. My sister has it.
Hmm.

I don't think I really 'got' the album until seeing him live with a string quartet backing.

That was a good concert.

You should learn to escape from your rediculous replys in threads because, when you get out on the streets, there will be no chance in hell that you'd muscle up enough courage to say any of your replys to a real person's face, such as me!!!I surely would like to break the nose and even leg off of a jacka ss as truly cowardly as you, though, period!!!
Resorting to violent talk on an internet message board is clearly the typing of a child. Grow up. Please.

As for all of this 'Jack White can't play guitar' crap, you've obviously never seen Jack play guitar. He is incredibly talented.. He is on this month's cover of Guitar World with Jimmy Page (that's Led Zeppelin, child).. Page praises Jack's creativeness.


Go ahead and **** on Led Zeppelin, child, I dare you.


I've been playing guitar for 11 years. I've seen the White Stripes 5 times. White is a ******* amazing guitarist. Period. Indisputable, listen to Ball And Biscuit or Death Letter. Don't **** on him, whether you think the album is well-done or not. By the time Jack was 15 he was more talented and well-mannered than yourself.


By the way, please don't reply saying you wish you could 'break my nose'. You already sound like an adolescent on the internet.

1. Do not ever tell someone to shut up on my ****ing forum.

2. Acoustic and Electric guitar differ in the signals (albiet sound, square, or saw waves) that are produced from the vibration of the strings. Therefore if someone play's good acoustic songs, he/she will play good electric songs and vice versa. You might not like the song, but saying that the difference in ability was because of the soundscape that was used is asinine.

3. Big3 might not be the prettiest grammer, but at least his post are understandable. You use smiley's like they're going out of style. And you're grammer is atrocious. Do not attempt to "school" someone for spelling or grammatical errors when you have trouble as well.

4. People who play guitar naturally have an edge on musical knowledge. Guitar lessons would not improve Big3's grasp of Theory. Theory classes would. You lose.

5. Who the **** are you to threaten someone ONLINE with physical violence? You sir, just lost every bit of credibility you had. Which, I assure you, wasn't to great of a loss.

In conclusion, you have done nothing but make lame comments and attempt to feed your obviously outrageous ego from petty arguements online.



now for my on topic contribution

Best of '05

Between the Buried and Me - Alaska
Amazing in every possible respect. The guitar switches styles as fast as the drums pump out jazz and blast beats. One of the few bands that incorporates bass very well into their arrangments also. The only weak thing about the record is the lyrics. They sound like Tommy Rogers had a fever when he wrote them. Very odd and esoteric. But still, my favorite release of '05

With Passion - In the Midst of Bloodied Soil
They describe themselves as melodic-black-spazz-jazz-hit-by-a-bus metal. I'd have to agree.

Dark Tranqullity - Character
The kings of Gothenburg are back in prime form. Every song is a sonic assault on the senses. Haunting melodies, memorable riffs, and some of the best sounding electronic parts I have ever heard.

Worst of '05

At All Cost - It's Time To Decide
It's not really a terrible album, it's just a huge dissapointment. Since signing to Combat Records and relocating to Richmond, At All Cost seems to have decided to cram as many sounds as possible into one song. And when the music is angry punk/metal, it doesn't work.

Foo Fighters - In Your Honor
I wish that Best of You was released as a single and that was all. Never again will I buy a cd based off of a solitary song. I got suckered. Big time. It felt as if they wrote the same song over and over again.

Panic! At The Disco - A Fever You Can't Sweat Out
A bad attempt at combining Fall Out Boy and Techno. I mean, Fall Out Boy is terrible to begin with, don't add a volatile genre on top of that! I disliked the entire album. My brother bought this one. Thank God.

But you cannot determine these things as accurately as someone who is also very skilled at these things.
And trust me, half of all these actors and what not you see are professionals whether you like it or not, so they must be damn good to begin with.
Therefore, I do not concur with your statement.

Alright man, I'm sure plenty of people have seen Jack White.
I saw them in a bar in Detroit with my dad when I was 8.
On another note, don't be a hypocrite.
No need to be patronizing.
