Rodan - Rusty

Not heard this in a while, always a pleasure to go back to... one of my favourite albums of the 90s! The drummer is fantastic, I've never properly appreciated just how good his style is before.

I also found in the aeroplane over the sea to be pretty much crap. I don't care how much "Raw emotion" is in his voice or how "sincere" it is. I think its funny that you if think if someone doesn't like the album then they must think that generic pop singers are great o.0

i was just asking him to look at it from a different perspective. a lot of great artwork goes completely unappreciated just because people don't understand how they should be looking at it. if he changes his perspective and still doesn't like it, no skin off my back but at least let me explain why I like it so much

a song well sung is a sung well song so sing.

23 Skidoo - Seven Songs (1982)

I first heard this album a couple of months ago and I've been listening to it this week again. It's great. I really love this whole blend of experimenting, industrial, funk, jungle. With only half an hour, this one flies very easy. Here's some taste of it:

David Bowie - Outside

Re-arrange these words - this I album fucking love

Fantastic album. Fun fact - there are over 24 hours' worth of unreleased outtakes from these sessions.

His voice brings a very important sense of sincerity to the music, possibly the most important part of the music itself. If you don't like the voice, than it is impossible to like the music. I am just asking that you listen to it in a different way.
Why single out Rihanna, GaGa and Beyonce? What do they have to do with anything?

I'm sorry but i didn't hear any emotion in this album. It just annoyed me.

Tally up one more for the people who loved the album. First time I heard it had me listening to it almost non-stop for a week. That 'jesus' song is the only one i can't stand. Every other song on that album is brilliant. I guess some people just can't connect with it but that doesn't make the album bad. I always thought the best music takes a while to grow on people anyway. I used to hate most of what are now my favorite bands. soooo whatever.

I am only halfway through it, but I think I am already falling majorly in love with the new Arcade Fire album... it took me long enough to find all the tracks and piece it together, but it was well and truly worth the effort! Future favorite album coming methinks...
