Wow, we have some closet Dubstep fans in the house. I did not see that coming, and I don't care who you are, anyone who ever said VEGANGELICA has no sense of humor is a fool. That **** was funny. But yeah, shout out to my "never would suspect me" Dubsteppers.

Today was a ****ty ****ing day, pretty much all around for me. Just got home from a long ass days work, and I'm already feeling like I could lay it down. But, I have some classwork to do so that won't be an option for a couple of hours. So I'm going to kick back and listen to some tunes, and maybe, just maybe work on some school work.


Song of The Day: Jenova Project by DatsiK





I was just thinking about what should be the song of the day, and I was trying to avoid going Dubstep again in fear of repetition, but I realized that I must've listened to this song at least 20x today at work. One of those that's so good you just can't stop listening to, just replay it and replay it. I don't know what it is about it, but this song does something for me, something good.

Again, don't bother with this one if you don't have a bass capable method of playback. You will need it. This track brings soft keys over a ridiculously heavy sub-bassline, and the wobble effect is brilliant, as used. Basically, DatsiK brings the ruckus, that pretty much sums it up. One of the heaviest, or "flithiest" songs I have right now, and I'm loving the whole melodic beauty of it's madness thing it has going on. That's about it. Enjoy.

Alright so I'm back on this thing, and I'll keep doing my best to keep this thing as "daily" as possible. It's been a busy couple of weeks and I haven't really had a lot of time to stop in and do an entry. Not much today, day of work as usual, followed by my bi-monthly trip to the grocery store. Lots of fun. Oh well, lets hear some music already. You may be asking yourself, "self, I wonder what type of music crash will have in the reader today...?". Well, the answer is, Psychedelic Blues. That's right, an interesting combination isn't it? I thought so.

Song of The Day: Frustrating Sound by Radio Moscow




The driving blues rock sound of the band is pretty up front and in your face on this particular track. The psychedelic elements are more on the back burner on this one, but still present regardless. The bass playing is what I like most about this band, it's always so tight with the bass drum and makes for a great bluesy sound. The interlude where we hear the guitar lead is quite impressive, as the band plays an increasingly intense and furious backdrop to the lead before breaking down and reverting to a more simplistic version of the original riff, and the song fades out from there. Overall a great track (that happens to be a live recording) from a great band.

I know there is a Radio Moscow thread here on MB somewhere, but they've never really gotten any notable attention on here. So hopefully you like it. Enjoy.

Happy Holiday's MBers, it's that time of year again, and I'm pretty much back. So here it is, Crash's Daily Reader, new name, same questionable taste. I'll be living overseas in less than a month and that's had me pretty freaked out for a bit now. So I've been laying low recently, jamming on some different stuff, and basically not doing much else. So in some sort of off-putting attempt at a come back, here goes my latest attempt at a journal entry.

Oh, and by the way... Zed's dead.


Track of The Day: Panther (Zeds Dead Remix) by Barletta



Only Zeds Dead would be capable of conjuring up such an artful combination of filthy wobble-step and traditional dub music. ZD is able to lay his overweight bass line right alongside the original dub track almost seamlessly, and he does a great job of filling the leftover spaces with ambient ear candy. The vocals and residual instrumentals add a nice accent in the treble range to balance the sound of the track. The dub music provides the necessary intro to the rather quick drop, which comes in timely, yet with great force. There is certainly no question about when and where this track is in business. The track maintains a good pace and doesn't really let down, it just gets better and better the more it goes on.

Overall, this song will vibe you out and get you moving at the same time, and who could ask for a better Christmas present than that, right?

Hank Williams III - Rebel Within



1. Gettin' Drunk and Fallin' Down - 2:34
2. Rebel Within - 4:44
3. Lookin' For A Mountain - 4:52
4. Gone But Not Forgotten - 4:57
5. Drinkin' Ain't Hard To Do - 3:33
6. Moonshiner's Life - 3:27
7. #5 - 6:34
8. Karmageddon - 4:27
9. Lost In Oklahoma - 4:02
10. Tore Up And Loud - 3:49
11. Drinkin' Over Mama - 3:11

Simple, crass, juvenile, and poorly sung. That said, this is exactly what modern country music needs. A perfect complement to the Hank Williams legacy, and probably the album that Hank 3 will be most remembered by. For years, Hank 3 has ventured into different sub-genres of almost every major type of metal and country music you can think of, but the journey has finally come full circle on Rebel Within. Hank 3 brings tidbits of experience from his prior ventures into a glorious fusion with a glorious throwback to both his father and grandfather. Simply sung songs about drinkin', family, Tennessee, and raising hell that brings country back to a place where pretty boys who are forced into Wrangler's and a cowboy hat, handed a list of terrible songs they didn't even write, and handed a guitar they don't even know how to play are considered stars.

Hank 3 is far from the most polished singer in the genre, but shines through with confidence and a sense of realism that will make you feel like you're drinkin' moonshine out of a brown jug next to a shotgun shack on a Tennessee hillside. Though the vocals come off as rough, the instrumentals really shine, as numerous songs feature extremely intricate instrumentals that vary from mandolin to acoustic guitar, and even steel guitar. All these elements combined make Rebel Within a visceral and vivid experience and offer a great look into the life of the artist who's name it bears.

Crash's overall rating: 8/10

(This album is good enough to pay for.)

Well there was no entry yesterday, was a busy day and I just didn't have time, and by the time I did have the time I was too drunk to make a decent entry. So my epic 4-day weekend is officially underway, and I'm pretty excited about it. I actually have a bit of money to fool about with, and I plan on making it a fun 4 days. A trip to the casino perhaps??? It's a possibility. So lets kick back on labor day with a genre that has not been covered in this journal yet. Hip-hop.


Song of The Day: If I Had by Eminem





So the release and subsequent insane popularity of Eminem's latest release Recovery (2010) has sparked some controversy and debate. Is Eminem better now than he has ever been? Well, quite simply the answer from Crash is: No, Hell no. I say this for a few reasons: first, Eminem's subject matter is nowhere close to where it was in the Slim Shady LP and Marshall Mathers LP days, this song is proof of that. What makes a great hip-hop album? is it over produced club bangers? No. Is it songs about money, cars, women, and drugs? Well, sometimes. But what it's really about it authenticity. How real is it? How much can you feel what the artist is feeling? How much can you relate to the music? A great hip-hop album, or any album for that matter, invokes several strong emotions on the listener upon listening. This album, and this song especially, does that. Period.

The Slim Shady LP is hands down one of the best hip-hop albums of all time, and this song is one of the best of the bunch on the album. The album is full of great subject matter, everything from hard times, murder, envy, drugs, and offers a great look into one of the most twisted and talented minds of our time. In the song If I Had, Eminem takes us to some of his most intimate thoughts about life, and money. The song is a saga of how money always seems solve everything, but in reality only complicates things, a la Mo' Money, Mo' Problems. Overall, Eminem offers up everything you could want from a great hip-hop song on this track; great lyrical content, strong delivery, a simple yet solid beat. Bottom line, this song invokes empathy and emotion into the listener, and that is rare. So let's turn up the bass, burn one, and kick back on the weekend... Enjoy.
I so agree with the part of how he's nothing like he used to be. Maybe the drugs got to his head and screwed up his rapping skills.

Marshall Mather's LP = the best rap album IMO.
