Mai 24 2010, 3h41 por ragnarok2So I'm deciding that during this long summer I have I am going to finally go through my large discography and listen to each album all the way through. Some I've listened to hundreds of times, others never, so this will be very interesting. I'll rate the albums out of 5 when I'm finished and to give myself some variety I will go in ABC order of album names so I'm not listening to the same artist consecutively.
Above the Weeping World - One of the greatest melodic death metal albums of all time by Insomnium of Joensuu, Finland. The music is absolutely fantastic, the guitars make melodies that seem dreamlike. The lyrics are haunting and very poetic at times. Only complaint is that it gets hard to understand those lyrics sometimes. Otherwise a classic. This one is hard to put into words, as only listening will make you truly understand.
Absolution - Easily one of my favorite albums of all time from one of my favorite bands of all time in Muse. Every song is fantastic. …

For just the albums though, this will be the place to avoid all the superfluous shite. I had 32 in total, which is an unbalanced number to list but that's the way it is. Anyhow, here's 32-21:
32 - The Gutter Twins - Saturnalia
Greg Dulli/Mark Lanegan collaborations are always likely to find a place, though this is lower than I would have first expected. It's a sombre, introspective affair for the most part, with only a few tracks like 'Idle Hands' providing a much needed change of pace. Good but perhaps too solemn for its own good?
31 - Sigur Rós - Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust
A mild surprise, in that this time out everyone's favourite BBC documentary soundtrackers reign in the epic and keep a good 3/4 of the tracks around the 5 minute mark. The album doesn't suffer for it and it actually makes for a happily direct listen…
Dez 30 2008, 4h37 por rearviewmirr0rI love music and I know there's a ton of great stuff out there that I've yet to discover.
I guess the purpose of this journal is to ask everyone for music recommendations, so I can experience a whole bunch of both old and new albums and expand my horizons in the coming year of 2009.
Not necessarily just your favorites, but music you'd think I'd enjoy based off my charts or favorites.
I love finding new music and exploring the artist, so feel free to recommend artists, albums and songs as well.
My favorite artists include:
Stone Temple Pilots
Alice in Chains
Rage Against the Machine
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Nine Inch Nails
The Mars Volta
