Default Review The Batlord's Recs

Plenty of threads these days about suggesting music for people, but how about rec'ing albums for everyone else? Basically, I'll provide a list of albums for people to review, and they will do so in this thread, not me.

I'll put forth albums in multiple genres and sub-genres for others to review, and then they can do so if they feel like it. There will be no "first come first serve", you can pick whatever albums you feel like, even if other people have already "called" an album or reviewed it.

If you feel like suggesting an album for me to add to the list, then feel free, but ultimately, this is a thread for me to revel in other's reviews of albums I want to hear their opinions of, so I reserve the right to not give a **** about anything anyone recs. This is entirely down to my own amusement. But I'm drunk, so anything goes, cause I'm drunk. Very drunk. Very, very drunk.

This thread might die a timely death, but I'm drunk and bored, so...

So basically we choose one/more from your list and promise to review it? Hmm. I have done a lot in your list already, and there are many there I know I'd hate. Is the point to get people into this music or just for you to sit back and laugh as their heads explode?

I'll have a shot at Motley Crue if you like.

I'm drunk. There is no point.






But please, review Motley Crue. It took me five minutes to write this sentence after all.

Nice idea, I'll get on a few of these soon. Can't remember if I've heard Pink, or Smile by Boris... possibly both but I'll relisten to make sure.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

Dude just reminded me of that band from the end credits of the first episode of True Detective...

The Black Angels - Passover

Some quality stoner rock. Check it out or be it a bitch... on the list.

Always on the lookout for quality stoner rock. I'll check it out and get back to you. Though I haven't come across too many acts that do stoner wrong. So it's pretty much a garunteed like already

Not only should you listen to that song from the credits, but you should watch the show. If stoner rock were created in the sixties, then you would have The Black Angels...

Sorry for the delay, but I haven't had a whole lot of free time recently, I did listen to a few minutes of Passover, and enjoyed it. Will write a review hopefully soon for Pink, Passover, Jane Doe, and Poison the Well soon. Might get to the other ones in due time. Love the thread concept though, don't want it to die as soon as it started.

Never could get into Blut Aus Nord but I guess I can give that album a shot and review it.
