Amplifier Worship is a very mediocre album in that it's a weird blend of good ideas, but executed poorly and without any confidence. The album always seeks something new to try out, but trying to fit drone metal, post-rock, heavy metal, noise rock and psychedelic rock, at least the way they did in this album, doesn't work well. This album tries to be too much and instead of sticking with one strong idea and developing on it, they put a bunch of weak ideas. The drone metal parts of this album do ... read more

With this very unexpected release, Death Grips show their most experimental, noisy and hardly accessible side yet. With way more elements of noise, power electronics, industrial and glitch music, the trio has revealed their most unique experience yet. This EP has barely any hip-hop and instead focuses on the instrumental production (which includes the intense noises, glitches in Stefan's voice, etc). While this album focuses a lot of noise and glitch and extremely high-tempo experimental ... read more

Ummagumma is a very peculiar listen. It is not meant for your average Pink Floyd listener and certainly does not sound like anything this band has released in the amount of experimentation it contains. The first disc contains a very normal and enjoyable, easily-listenable recording of a live performance by Pink Floyd. The second disc is filled with anything from ambient music, improvisations, and elements of musique concrète, making it very inaccessible, and for many, unenjoyable. Is it ... read more

Originally released in 1999 under the label Smekkleysa ("Bad Taste" in Icelandic), "Ágætis byrjun", roughly translated to 'A Good Start' in English, is undoubtedly the Icelandic quartet's magnum opus work. It's also the album that launched the band's popularity not only in Iceland but in the rest of the world—people often seem to forget that it was this album that got Sigur Rós from playing in church basements to playing in stadiums and being icons ... read more

Good ideas and splendid execution, but with no changes in style between either of the songs, this gets uninteresting to the point of boredom. This album contains 17 songs and I can't differentiate them from one another. Pretty much the same annoying metal noise for 24 minutes. I must give some credit to the talent that goes in the drumming work in this album, but something about Jon Chang's over-the-top screamo voice annoys me. A somewhat promising album that unfortunately goes in no direction.

You should really check out a lot of that list, a ton of it might be right up your alley. Like this Saudi Arabian band Al-Namrood

Yeah, I grew up surrounded by Spanish speakers so French just seems so out there to me. Btw, do you have anymore Quebecois albums you could recommend to me?

Nah I sort of understand. 've seen "concept" cities like that and I just assume Quebec is that but authentic.

French is a scary language imo. It sounds so alien. Like super short but also wiggly?

What is Quebec like exactly? The most north I've ever been was NYC.
