Sadly, it kicks off with a couple pretty goofy sound riffs and the singer doesn't sound nearly wild enough for his cartoony vocal approach. He comes off like a parody of a certain type of thrash singer. Cool solos, some ok riffs here and there, but I feel like this band probably has some better songs. The singer has to go. His thrash metal vail was decent, but otherwise, I felt like he was slumming it.

4/10

the music was pretty cool mostly but I didn't like anything about the vocals and otherwise cheesiness. Although there guitar was downright sick at parts. so like 5/10

Since my previous pick was from ages ago, I don't feel too bad about jumping in on this one:

Sonic Youth - Stones
The extended intro was great. The guitars sounded amazing and there was a very interesting vibe to this part of the song. Once it gets going and the singer comes in, I like it less. The drums are really, really good, the guitars are fine and the vocalist is... karaoke level. He mostly reminded me of a Lou Reed with less personality, except when he reminded me a bit of Stipe from R.E.M. I get that this kind of thing is par for the course for rock band singers, but to me, he's just kind of... not cutting it.

The instrumental part at the end really brings this song back up. It's the long stretch with more of a vocal focus that I'm not too keen on. If that had been on level with the start and end of this song, it would have been playlist material for me.

6/10

My pick:

Yasmine Hamdan - La Ba'den

I like the dry and atmospheric production on that and her voice is pretty nice. It fades too much in the middle to boast quality song structure, but overall the percussion is great and she's a quality vocalist. I'll give it a 7/10

Thumb of Disease is about tech gadgets like computers, and cell phones, video games etc. - things you use your thumb to operate. It's about how they are used to spread "filth across mankind" and are used to "fulfill despotic desires." They are monolithic culturally - everyone uses them, and they're oppressive probably cause people are addicted to them. Kinda of a bummer of a song.

Captain Beefheart - Click Clack

Awesome, one of my favourite cuts from Clear Spot. One of the all around catchiest Beefheart tracks and I love how the heterophonic slide, really spices up the track. And of course the Beef always nails it live. 10/10

It's a cool enough track. Nothing to stand out about it though. ☆☆☆1/2

I liked the fat, heavy groove and the track had a lot of energy. Maybe not something I can see myself put on a playlist, but it was good for what it was. I imagine this band has some more interesting tracks somewhere, perhaps.

7/10

My pick: Pharaoh - Castles in the Sky



(If you feel like you recognize the singer's voice, it's Tim Aymar, who sang on that Control Denied album).

I'm listening to the weedly deedly metal intro and then the worst 90s Matt Barlow trad metal **** singer with no sense of taste ever ruins even irony. 3/10 and that's a gift.
