  1. The Fall of Troy - OK POS - Chill, dummy
  2. Just about my feelings on it too. It's a little TOO consistent, actually. Kinda wish there were a few higher highs, the whole things blends together a little bit. Still a really good album though.
  3. Man, I'm really enjoying this EP. I was REALLY bored with Hesitation Marks because it really lacked a lot of dynamics and the grittier textures that make NIN interesting for me, and this delivers all of those things with a slightly new twist. Really hoping Trent's got more stuff in this vein coming soon-ish, because this has me back into NIN for the time being.
  4. Drops of Jupiter was an alright song but now they're the personification of boring, white bread pop music. Fuckin Maroon 5 lite.
  5. Honestly, I loved that Axl wanted to branch out their sound a little. If they dropped another cock rock album in the mid 90s or another bloated UYI-style record it would've probably been a commercial and artistic failure, imo.
  6. Even though I'm not a big fan anymore, I totally agree. They're an excellent band to see live and there's usually so much energy. Last time I saw them was at Mayhem Fest in 2014 and me and a total stranger spent all of A Little Piece of Heaven screaming lyrics at each other like some sort of weird lyric battle, haha.
  7. Loved it on the first listen because of the new album hype, but my opinion is cooling down already. I dig that they went back to their older style a bit after HTTK and that they're not going for obvious hooks and hit singles this time around, but some of the songs just drag on needlessly and have no interesting melodies to hold onto. I actually wrote a long ass review for it here for my personal music blog.
  8. Heh, I just spent way longer than I should have trying to put that sentiment into words and you did it way better. Like you said, it felt like everyone had moved on to different things, and Axl had a chance to move beyond that dirty rock and roll sound and do something new. A reunion at this point almost feels like admitting defeat and taking a step backwards, especially with how relatively little fanfare there was to Axl and Slash patching things up.
  9. I don't know how to feel, honestly. For me, I was just genuinely interested in that industrial/electronic sound Axl was gunning for in the late 90s/early 2000s, and hoped that the new band could carve their way out of the shade of the GNR name by at least a few inches. In a way, the reunion almost feels like the band/Axl accepting their status as a nostalgia act once and for all. As flawed as the CD era was, there was always at least that slim chance that something truly new for them could happen. But on the other hand, I can't help but feel happy that the band that first got me into music at 12 years old is (mostly) back together and kicking ass, and who knows, maybe they'll actually make really great new music together at some point.
  10. Yeah, ever since the reunion the attitudes around here changed really fast. Feels like that whole era was all for nothing now.
  11. The only thing I ever wanted from the CD era was for them to deliver on just being a band. I didn't need it to be as good as the old GNR, or even sound the same, I just wanted some albums and decent tours. It was a good opportunity for Axl to break the mold, do something a little different, at least justify to the world that he had some reason for keeping the name, but he literally wasted roughly a decade altogether doing nothing. It was depressing then and it's more depressing now.
  12. Saw Deftones for the third time on Tuesday and had a fucking blast. Probably the best time I've seen them yet (partly because I didn't have to defend my tiny ex at this one, unlike the last two). Actually had a few surprises setlist wise and I spent the whole night on the rail, even high fived Chino when he dived in the crowd. Great night all around.
