overall, i was disappointed with hella. although the track 'brown metal' is absolutely superb.
though i also love 'there's no 666 in outer space' or whatever it's called. it has a singer and everything, though it might take a while to like his voice...
is pretty shit. church gone wild? or something
nintendo hella style you should definately check out 'Chirpin Hard'. Its so underrated but i think is a work of almost genius.
Chirpin' Hard (though it doesn't really count as a proper Hella album) is one of my favourites. Fucking excellent. Chruch gone wild is a bit harder to take, but is also a good listen.
HYHI and TDIR as everyone else has said are big hits.
I don't really like the singer (makes me constantly think of Gaz Coombes for some reason) but the singy ones are OK.
i don't know how that would work
that occassionally sounded like hella when he shuts up.
totally going to listen to 666 later. its been ages
absolutely no question there.
then 666 if you want to hear a weird cross between that and the mars volta.
early EPs are pretty good - total bugs bunny on wild bass is worth having
unless you know where I can get a vinyl of HYHI
people have distinct music tastes, some of which incorporate The Mars Volta.
The Mars Volta have actually writting some BRILLIANT music, and anyone who dismisses deloused in the comatorium shows a lack of musical understanding.
for me ther order goes
Hold your horse is
the devil isn't red
There's no 666 in outer space
church gone wild
total bugs bugs bunny
given i mentioned "distinct tastes", indicating a recognition for variety of preferences.
You, however, said "why would anybody...", incorporating all persons under your umbrella of dislike.
i'm going to give hold your horse is another chance i think.
i can't do it. i've realised that everytime i listen to this band i can't help but think how vastly superior lightning bolt are to them.
i think...'this time could be spent listening to lightning bolt'.
I need too much music :(
lightning bolt > hella x1000000000000
start with hypermagic mountain or wonderful rainbow, the latter of which seems to have the most critical acclaim
hold your horse is >>>>>>>>> anything lightning bolt have ever done. catchier, more varied, more interesting, technically a thousand times better and more inventive playing. it doesnt "rock" as hard, but then there are bands who rock a shit of a lot hharder than lightning blah
he's right, 'hold your horse is' trumps anything they've released.
stop being silly. are you getting some sort of commission? do you know what you're saying? are you ok?
whilst my needless, abstract comparison of lightning bolt and hella is an unjustified and personal one, the above statement is simply false. 'hold your horse is' is nowhere near as good as anything lightning bolt have produced. yes, it's that simple, and yes, that's including their debut.
i can't be bothered to prove it, because such a thing is futile.
lightning bolt >>>>>>> hella
Although I ordered HYHI ages ago but something gay seems to have happened.
Like two men having sex yeah?
fuck amazon. I'm listening to Hold Your Horse Is now.
