i feel foolish
i mean i would like 2/3 profiles but is it a bit too much effort?
sound a little too much like James Dean Manicface?
He does. Now I think, maybe that's why I started liking Cave In all those years ago.
Because they have very different moods and sounds on almost every album
and it was too stoner for my liking at the time, but i like it more now, but i don't think i'd ever taking in the fact that they used to be actually heavy when i'd been told by people.
Just started listening to Perfect Pitch Black again, what a cracking album that is. 'Trepanning' is an unbelievable song.
One of my favourites.
ok'ish musically but Brodsky's a terrible terrbile lyricist.
On Until Your Heart Stops the lyrics are awful, but the music more than makes up for it.
Antenna is awesome - if a little too polished. They have the nack of writing big songs - 'Stained Silver' or 'Anchor' to name a few.
Antenna, overly produced, bland and the lyrics are horrible
jupiter is lovely.
after what went before it, in retrospect it has some nice moments though. Joy Opposites is great, among others. Jupiter is still a firm favourite 6/7 years later though, and I still wear the shirt I got seeing them in newcastle in 2002.
Very well written album - nice mixture of poppy and progressive stuff.
was a huge mistake
probably my biggest ever
that review makes me feel ashamed
my biggest music reviewing mistake
there was that time i killed a man, obviously.
one of my favourite albums ever now ironically
it's DiS though
so i cant give it a 10
or explain why you can't give it a 10?
according to Wiki anyway.
check out Jupiter. NOW.
I've only heard 'big riff' and that sounds fab. How does it compare to Tides of tommorrow and Antenna?
it's alright. i used to like that stuff years ago, not really my thing now.
is excellent, until your heart stops is their best though...
I love 'perfect pitch black' and I was forever being told that Jupiter was mind blowingly good. It's certainly not bad but it doesn't have the interplay between Brodsky's clean vocals and the slugdecore growling that I love so much.
but I would warn anyone of getting into any of Stephen Brodsky's other bands. The 'Pet Genius' album, its utterly dire plus The Octave Museum are pretty average too
forgotten which one though but it's very 'summery' and slightly psyc-folky. Every time I listen to it I remind myself he used to play bass for Converge and I giggle a lot.
Well, I really like the first 4 or 5 tracks. Then it's a long slide downhill.
the earlier stuff, but antenna got a good blend. Tide of Tomorrow was really good too.
