Any yahoo can tell that Maggot Brain is horrendously overrated. Apart from the title track (which is awesome for the first seven minutes), it's actually a piss poor show for a funk album. One Nation, on the other hand, is legitimately amazing.

I will have to check this out.

It is a great album but I still prefer Undisputed Truth! Check out Dennis Coffey too!

At the moment I'm hooked on Prefuse 73's latest offering, and just spotted a new beautiful downtempo number by Trinah (Rainwatch). The Cool Kids album is never off my ipod either.

New Wave of British Heavy Metal groups Blitzkrieg and Witchfinder General, and their respective debut albums. These guys all had their own anthems (a song with the band name as the title) which I think is coool.

Cheerios go very nicely with heavy metal. Milk optional but recommended. However mine are multi-grain (what do you think we are, peasants?) and don't have eyes



The production on the Blitzkrieg album was a bit of a cock-up, there's loads of reverb but it's still standard stuff that solicits the reaction depicted above ^^
Nobody would remember Blitzkrieg if it wasn't for the Metallica cover of 'Blitzkrieg', and the singer is a dead ringer for early James Hetfield

NWOBHM has dated badly. Witchfinder General, UFO, Angel Witch, Diamond Head were all great during their time but today sound inescapably still in the eighties. The thrash which coincided and bands like Sabbath that preceded NWOBHM are still relevant but those of the era have slipped in time, caught permanently behind thrash metal's wake.

ech, i dunno Witchfinder General seem a bit more Sabbath that the power-pop stylings of most NWOBHM, and I was listening to mentalist progressive 80's thrash way before I succumbed to this stuff erm... last week. I see what you mean though, I'm still not partial to some of the more overly-theatrical yelped-vocal stylings of certain bands, but it's all quite light-hearted fun really

All brought on by the NWOBHM compilation that jackhammer has, which I imagine is pretty damned definitive in a scene that probably didn't yield many classic albums. I dare you to listen to that and not derive any enjoyment from it

Also the more I listen to this Blitzkrieg album the less I like it, in the sense that bar a few bangers it really is a missed opportunity

I've had that album (the Blitzkrieg one) for some time now and it never took me anywhere when I first listened to it. I'll give the comp a spin and see if anything clicks, but for me there have one been two or three definite "great" albums to come out of the era. And while there are people who will forever associate metal with their upbringing in NWOBHM, I can't get any gratification listening to Motorhead & Iron Maiden albums.

yeah i'll PM you the link, I hope it doesn't leave you cold, I always used to hate this kind of stuff but I have a really weird almost tongue-in-cheek (but not) way of appreciating alot of music that some people might find cringe-worthy...
The variety is good though and there are plenty of ludicrous band names (my favourite is a track by Tygers of Pan Tang ) - also you can really hear the hangover of prog rock influence in some tracks, alot of these guys started in prog.

Oh and there is a Maiden track (I've never been a fan either) but it's pre-Dickinson.

Alot of NWOBHM metal bands have dated quite badly. Its a fairly hit and miss genre for me, some of it still sounds relevant to me and some of it I just can't get into at all. Witchfinder's debut though is one of my favourites and I think it still sounds very relevant. I can hear a lot of Witchfinder and a few other Sabbath-esque bands in some of the more traditional doom from the present day.
