Second only to The Velvet Underground, the early releases from Black Sabbath have been able to wield an amount of relevance unlike most bands of their era with 'Paranoid' being their most accessible and quintessential work. Not that it's a bad thing being easy to play. Far from it actually. The vividness of Paranoid's lyrics are quite astonishing. I like to think that's in part to how each song on Paranoid feels like its own piece; with Side A being the best example. With songs like the title ... read more

My little sister said she'd steal my femur if I didn't listen to this. So, yeah. Here I am. (Hopping on one leg nevertheless.)

Some pretty fun arrangements await on this one. It's nice and spiffy. Snazzy even. Some pretty straightforward rock with some blushes of J-Pop and Jazz with some great performances from the vocal and rhythm department just for good measure.

One day, I'll actually be old in age (you will too, mind you) and these will be the sounds that I'll associate myself with as the hours go by faster and my life slowly begins to lose relevance to the new 'modern' each and every day.

Coltrane's tenor saxophone was always an extension of himself.

Deterioration is the word I'm looking for, yes. It's honestly painful to listen to sometimes. Especially if you grew up with Coltrane like me. I had a moment ... read more

Long Season, much like the later works of the Fishmans, is a deconstruction of urban modernity. However, here we see an abstraction of this idea. A longing for contentment even. Over the course of one, thirty-five minute song (broken into five distinct parts) we see the creative pendulum swing between said urbanism (and the sorrows circulating within) to a second and third act that are both structured on wind chimes, minimalistic synths, and tribal drumming. Which, is obviously a nod to nature. ... read more

Glad you were able to make that call if that's how you were feeling. I've been pretty good. I've got my first exam coming up tomorrow, so I've been largely focusing on that. Getting pretty tired of this lockdown as well, but I'm sure everyone is haha

Gav! Is that you? (I do in fact realise I almost sound like that recurring character from Red Dead Redemption 2)

Thank ya very much! John Fahey's been in my peripherals for a while now, so thanks for getting me listenin! I will say, my initial quest was for someone who shreds like Joanna Connor, but this kinda folky/country blues was exactly what I needed right now... cheers!

This is just a means of tracking what I've listened to. Not a perfect representation of my tastes though. Maybe I'll do a little expression from time to time. Howdy do?
