The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
The Beach Boys Surprisingly Strange Discography and History: Part 10
Pet Sounds

In December of 1965 two key moments in the history of popular music happened: The release of Rubber Soul and Brian Wilson getting his hands on it.

And after that, let's just say everything was about to change as the day he heard it he started work on a new album. And what was to come is a once in a generation piece of art.

The importance and history of this album is extremely well documented and I truly cannot ... read more

Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
The Morning Glory Era

It’s hard to think of many follow up records that are as good as this one.

Noel was already in his golden period by the time Oasis got signed, but after Definitely Maybe he went into ‘best artist of the generation’ mode, where everything he touched turned to gold.

Sure everything on DM was fantastic but not everything around that period was as the B-sides only ever got good around the 4th single.

Though set period didn’t even start with this ... read more

Metallica - If Darkness Had a Son
New Metallica so far has been exciting only until hearing the songs themselves, I could excuse and really get into Lux Aeterna but this is painfully unoriginal and derivative, they're not like stealing from others but themselves. It's a straight up rip off of Eye Of The Beholder from AJFA but not nearly as good.

It's one thing to go "oh this reminds me of this album" but when you can instantly pinpoint the song it's ripping off...ugh that's not good, especially when it's so blatant. ... read more

Oasis - Definitely Maybe
The Definitely Maybe Era

Oasis are quite the interesting band, although these days known only for Wonderwall by most, they were very much one of the best bands around back in their glory years and people don’t talk enough about that or just write them off because of Wonderwall being a meme.

A bit unfortunate because if you ask me… shit man they are one of the best bands of the 90s, Noel Gallagher went into an absolute monster golden period between 94-97 where every single song he ... read more

Fall Out Boy - Love From The Other Side
Fall Out Boy are back and this new single is just about as good as it sounds on paper.

It does feel like them picking things up from where Folie A Deux left off instead of MANIA or the 2 albums before that. It's not trying to follow any trends nor is it trying to be a hit, they've had enough of those and they know it would never work again.

It's just them making a rather straight forward alt rock song and I love it, orchestral elements and the piano are the parts where it feels like a ... read more

Metallica - Lux Æterna

Waited years for this and...yeah I really liked this, it is standard Metallica but I don't think that's a bad thing, next year it'll have been 40 years since their debut and for a band that has been playing for so many decades, it's about as good as you'd expect y'know.

The riff is good, the song is catchy, the bass sounds good, the solo rips harder than any of the honestly underwhelming solos from hardwired (though given what happened with Kirk's phone I think it ... read more
