25 Jan 2007, 10:36 by box2006I thought it was time to revisit this with a change in the makeup of the top 10. I'll try to be more decisive this time, and try not to double up songs in different categories, meaning there will be some discrepancies with the same artists in the first version.

First Song Heard: Like a Stone

4 Jan 2007, 11:07 by StackboyAs an Australian I'm really lucky. I get 2 xmas-es. One with my folks and another on the 26 of january when its JJJ's hottest 100. I hang out with my friends all day, have a few drinks, kick around in a pool and listen to the countdown. It's seriously one of my favourite days of the year.
Here's my 10 votes for the year.
One and the Same
Nothing Lasts Forever
King Without a Crown
Seeing Double at the Triple Rock
Cigarettes And Suitcases
I think I covered most bases I wanted and came out happy.
WHAT DID YOU VOTE FOR YOU DIRTY AUSSIE PUNKS?
15 Oct 2006, 13:50 by NajmiAudioslave has never been able to escape its roots. Critics have repeatedly taken issue with their first two albums, complaining that they sounded more like Rage Against the Machine or Soundgarden. They had a point. Both Audioslave’s self-titled debut and 2005’s Out of Exile never seemed to develop a unique sound. Despite this acknowledge failing, 2006’s Revelations only takes small steps towards solving this problem. However, sound problems aside, Revelations is likely Audioslave’s most even offering to date.
The biggest problem with Revelations is that the band is still unable to escape their roots. Many songs sound remarkably similar the bands forerunners, Rage Against the Machine and Soundgarden. The intro to “One and the Same” sounds exactly like an outtake from a Rage song, and then the rest of the song sounds like Soundgarden. The Rage influence is clearly apparent on other songs such as “Sound Of A Gun” and “Somedays” while Soundgarden can be heard on “Jewel Of The Summertime”…
8 Oct 2006, 22:08 by mr_angryIts nearing that time again folks - time for Martin to choose his compilation of the best tracks of the year. Yes, since 2003, I've been dishing out the year's top music to the lazy and the unworthy in compilation format, and this year will be no different. In fact, its been such a bumper year for music, I may have to make it a double CD. Would 16 tracks really encompass the best of this year's musical talent? Could any material known to man constrain that kind of genius? I don't think so.
Of course, we're only in October, and there's plenty of time for someone to bring out a worthy album or single that demands some sort of inclusion in this year's mixtape. Who could forget Editors' late arrival in 2005, culminating in the inclusion of the wonderful Munich? It was so good, I listened to it for most of this year too. A little piece of me would like to put it on again this year, but rules are rules. It has to be discovered this year.

Octubre del año 2000 , mientras yo cumplía 17 años, se separaba una de las mejores bandas de la década de 90 y quizás de la historia del rock: Rage Against the Machine. Zack De La Rocha, impresionante cantante de RATM se hartaba de todo, de su banda, del mainstream y desaparecería del mundo de la música comercial, quién sabe hasta cuando.
Pero, en menos de 2 años, Chris Cornell (ex-Soundgarden) ya se había puesto al frente de la banda y pasaron a conocerse como Audioslave. Muchos fanas de RATM esperabamos el imponente regreso de la potencia de Tom Morello y cía, y el único temor era generado porque Cornell parecía haberse ido ido ablandando bastante en los últimos años de Soundgarden, claro que si regresaba a sus mejores épocas...
Y así fue, el primer disco de Audioslavenos presentó un Cornell que todavía rockeaba a la perfección y, a la vez, nos demostró que los ex-RATM (especialmente Morello) podían lucirse en fantásticas baladas. …
