Bergtatt - Et Eventyr I 5 Capitler by Ulver
Hmm... at one moment I'm intrigued... anyone who puts a flute in their music automatically gets extra points. But yeah, idk, it was ok I guess. A thought at one point I had was, wow, this makes those other albums sound so much better. Again, have yet to find vocals from a metal band that convinces me of any real conviction. This sometimes was worse than those who call it "dad rock". And then there were musical moments I was impressed with... hard to really judge. I'll give it a 75 for now.

2. Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy-Mindless Self Indulgence (possibly worse named than some of the badly named rap albums I've seen).

II Much Red by Red Money

OK, this is the most polarizing one yet. Half of this was unique Atlanta area bass music that sounds like nothing else I've listened to (out of this crop of albums) and other parts nearly put me to sleep. The production is great and Red Money is a pretty good MC, but at 1 hour and 15 minutes, I found myself spacing out numerous. He also gave a shout out to Outkast, so that was cool to hear.

Seth, listen to one of Kurt Cobain's favorite bands, The Wipers.

Smiley Smile by The Beach Boys

Well that was all a bit silly really. Luckily I like silly. Gives me a smiley smile. 7.5/10, 76/91 for the 60's, 17/19 for 1967.

Rocka: Greer, Ill Visions.


Time for another run-through of Rocka's best of the 60's for five picks - although updated recently with an all-new look it seems.

1. Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful - The Lovin' Spoonful
2. (Turn On) The Music Machine - The Music Machine
3. Behold And See - Ultimate Spinach
4. Black Monk Time - Monks
5. Black Woman - Sonny Sharrock
6. East-West - The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
7. Emergency! - The Tony Williams Lifetime

Ill Visions by Greer (90s)

Production: Solid, lots of classical and movie soundtrack samples used. Like, a crap load.

MC: He goes pretty hard. I wouldn't eff around with Greer. He's also in prison for murdering a girlfriend, so there's that.

Purplepash, glad you picked up mine again. The last time you went through mine, I realized how outdated it was. I'm still trying to work my way through reevaluating the 60s now myself.

Go ahead and try The Hums of The Lovin' Spoonful. It's a breeze.

OK, so I'm down to less than ten. I'll find a way to amend this at another time.

Shocked
This is one of the few albums that I am torn of what I think about this album. In one hand, I could say this is hot garbage. But on the other hand I could say this is fucking brilliant.
Now I do know about this band especially this song


Link


And with a bit of a critical ear, I could say that song is great and fun but I could tell that the song or more importantly the band is like wine. Not everyone is going to enjoy it. And it is quite obvious with the album I'm talking about. This album sounds like the 90's / early 2000's equivalent of Trout Mask Replica if Trout Mask Replica was into Nu Metal but also appreciated stuff like Industrial, Chip Tune, IDM and other genres that could be in this album.
So why did I type that sentence in the beginning? Well, if I was being critical I could how the songs are pretty tinny as well as obnoxious in there sound play. And though this doesn't affect me, but other listeners can find it obnoxious due to how there vulgar and offensive humor isn't provocative or in the way that makes you think about what is being said.
On the other side of the coin I admire and enjoy how addicting these songs can get. I love the mixture of genres to keep the listener on there toes. It never feels like a chore to get through. The vocal performances are truly campy.
So for grade wise on this site. I'm giving it a 95. But make no mistake, with being conflicted I could change the grade right on the spot. Like it could be in the 50-65 range if I really want it to be there.

Ain't No Turning Back by Big 50

(Calling Skinny)

This is a great southern, Houston area gangsta album. A more laid-back sounding approach to gang-life. Production may sound a little cheesy today, but I think it's great. Stick around for some screwed versions of songs, including the outro, which is better than most tracks that are titled outro.


Link


Luigii, I forgot that Mindless Self Indulgence existed. I could have stuck with forgetting them. Very Happy Anyways, why don't you go ahead and listen to Spock's Beard. At the rate you're going, you might just become a full-on Prog Nerd.

Youth Of America by Wipers

Damn... this was really good.

I can see how they influence so many in the early grunge days (mudhoney, melvins, nirvana, etc.). A tie to punk, but then some Joy Division/post-punk vibes (yet I mean that as a compliment because often Joy Division copy cats are a joke). A tinge of Talking Heads. But yeah, you can hear some Cobain in these vocals for sure. Dark, yet believable. Sometimes I hear about "major influence" bands and I kind of laugh because sometimes they are actually crap compared to who they influenced and I don't think that is the case here. Really dig the tinge of psychedelia here too. Sometimes I got a Doors vibe on the title track. Television... Yet I don't feel like these guys borrowed much... there's overlap, but feels pretty legit to me. 85-90... with a solid 90 possibly in the future.

Before we get to the review.
Really Chief? While I was listening to this album, Nintendo decided to give the good shit without a notice?
Fuck you Very Happy

Also I need a new laptop. Likes to crash on a somewhat common basis.

You got me. I just love prog a lot. It's one of those subsets of rock that I'm fascinated but also admire with my heart. Like Shoegaze. But yeah this was an easy album where the genre can be varied and keeps me engaged while being quite addicted to it's sound and genre hopping. It might be the "worst" out of the four albums I've listen to that are prog or prog related. But it still is an excellent listen. Grade:95
Also there is only 2 albums left for 2000. Hurry Up!

Seth coming in with the clutch. Your listening to the Daughters album. Hope you have fun.

Yeah, I wish I had a switch. I'll get one for Sword & Shield when it comes out, for sure.


Meet The Lil Gangsta by Lil Gangsta P

I'd like to meet Lil Gangsta P, but he was shot by the police in 2011. I think 75% of the people I have listened to are dead or in jail. The life of a rapper, I guess.

This was some good Bay Area rap. The bass on this album is superb, and I know it would sound good at the sideshow. Especially this song that's awesomely titled, "Town Is Stankin".

Luigii, Our Lady Peace is horrible. So, get it done.

EDIT: So, there's another hip hop list of 90s albums that is on RYM that I'm going to dive into next. There's some crossover, and some that I've heard before, but there's plenty to sift through.

American Football by American Football

This is great. I didn't know I needed an emo album with spacious, laidback instrumentation in my life, but it really hit the spot. Didn't pick up most of the lyrics on the first listen (hopefully nothing bad), but I thought the song structures and musical choices were all great. 4/5.

2. Chief, eat out tonight. Not surprising that's his album title since he's (in)famous for Put It In Your Mouth (more recently re-imagined by Run The Jewels and Gangsta Boo). If you already knew that factoid, you can simply move along without commenting Laughing
