27 Apr 2010, 19:56 by amodelofcontrolSo after a couple of weeks of work, here's my top twenty albums of the 90s.
There is again a Spotify playlist accompaniment to it, which is this time missing four entries, which with it being the top twenty is a little frustrating...
My top albums of the 90s part one: 100-81
My top albums of the 90s part two: 80-61
My top albums of the 90s part three: 60-41
My top albums of the 90s part four: 40-21
Type O Negative
Gothic, doomy metal dirges that actually have some semblance of an understanding of irony, and are on first name terms with "Mr Tune"? It's a wonder that they got away with this, but really, this album is still bloody marvellous. Even if the cover of Neil Young track Cinamon girl, in retrospect, isn't very good, the rest of it still worth listening to (Note: this was already in my top twenty long before the news broke that Pete Steele had died during April).

The Medication Generation
I feel highly privileged to have been supplied with a pre-release, near-completed version of the whole album, by some distance my most anticipated album of 2010. Remarkably, it's now nearly five years since Transhuman first made it's splash into the industrial world, and my full marks review still holds. And, I'm delighted to say that the new album is also brilliant, taking similar lyrical themes (scene apathy and fashionistas, medication, politics) as before but advancing the lyrics and the music that goes with it to a striking degree. Most of the songs you have already heard have been tweaked (some more than others), but it is perhaps most interesting that the best of the songs are the ones we hadn't heard up to this point. Which brings me to this. A short sample, and the blastbeats then come through the walls at you. It's fucking loud, brutally heavy, massively anthemic, densely packed with samples and bleeps…

26 Mar 2006, 00:51 by ptparatroopaI'd just like to say to any passerbys that it's fine if you don't like or agree with my taste in music. But please don't bother saying "Wow, you listen to shitty music," because music is a completely subjective thing. Telling me that I listen to bad music isn't going to convince me to stop listening to those particular musicians you can't stand, and you'll have just wasted your time then, too. I don't attack people who are fans of artists/bands/whatevers that I personally don't care for, and I'd appreciate the same. Thanks.

11 Mar 2006, 00:55 by PRAEst76Just got a leak of the new Gary Numan album Jagged. Was in two minds about buying this considering how disappointing I found 2000's Pure.
First impressions have confirmed my fears:
Dear god, someone please buy Gary Numan some new sounds for Xmas. I can't believe he's made yet another album using the same sound samples that he's been using on every album for about 15-20 years, and he wonders why he's not that successful. Successful artists have producers, Gary. I can't believe there are no decent producers out there that would be happy to make a Gary Numan album. Even for a low wage. It must be his own desire to work alone. Something I've always seen as a mistake for what I've always seen as an artist of great and unreached potential. I'm not an expert but I really think someone with the Aspergers could do with a relatively clear headed professional to consult at least for some clarity on what he's doing.
"Stop singing the keyboard parts Gary... that's what the keyboards are for."
