Default Mini-review the Metal song above you

When you can't come up with an idea of your own, steal someone else's, I always say! You know the drill I'm sure...

Heaviness is nice. Sounds newer, but not too new as it has the traditional metal feel, which is good or bad depending on how spruce one's taste in metal is on any given day. Although that type of singing has its place in music, and I can understand that, it's not for me, so it leaves me where this style always tend to lead me -- toward the Land of No Opinion.

I'm not a huge fan of the song, but that doubled my respect for Layne as a singer. I had no idea he was that versatile. The song itself is give a 6.5/10. I dig the bass and percussion but the guitar is pretty cheesy.

I definitely like the opening spectrum-wave like sounds. However, the stop-gaps in the beat are jarring to the flow, and the vocals don't seem like they're necessary. Strip those elements out and leave me with the spectrum noises, and you'd have some decent background music. 4/10 overall.

That was god-awful. The whole time I was thinking "what is this, 2002?" Just too much schlocky clean corporate radio rock with a little too much respect for Hoobastank. Absolutely not my cup of tea. One point because when I couldn't make out the singer's cracker accent in the outro the harmonies were okay I guess. 2/10

That song has the best guitar riff(s) I've heard since 2002 if you ask me. The riffs carry the song all by itself, and you don't find that much. The big issue with it is the singer, but anyone who has listened to rock for the past 20 years knows that beggars can't be choosers. Although it gets no love whenever I've shared it 'round the Nets, it's better than any ****ty Foo Fighters song of the same era. Cool beans with the harmonies point, though.

From someone who doesn't like bands like Hoobastank,

Songs like this are better once you're more familiar with them, over time, than upon first listen.

The Gnod track was some serious Public Image Limited worship.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard? Virus? QOTSA? Ty Segall? And that's without getting into metal. It's aight if you dig it though, that's just one hell of a statement.
