Is it bad that I kind of like this?

Maybe it's because I had never listened to Cudi before and didn't have any preconceived expectations, or maybe it's because I'm a sucker for 90s alt and grunge, or it could just be the whole "outsider / mental struggles" theme that appeals to me, but I don't think this is album is the barren musical wasteland it is portrayed to be. There is some music here that actually evokes strong feelingsand merits repeated listens if you're willing to pick ... read more

Habitual Levitation isn't as good as either of the two albums that precede it. If you're interested in this band, start with one of those. Especially Valley of Smoke.

But Intronaut is undeniably an incredibly talented band, and understandably, refused to be content with their established template, wanting to push in different sonic directions. 2013 saw them add new elements including more soft clean vocals and increased usage of post-rock textures and progressions. The changes they have made, ... read more

One of the single most annoying songs I've ever heard. It's the only Florence song I'm familiar with, but it follows me everywhere. I have heard this song in public dozens of times and I can't help but cringe every time it comes on. It's hard to identify what's so bad about it. Probably the vocals. But whatever it is, it's maddeningly irksome. Definitely won't be listening to anything else by this group if I can help it.

They totally recycled the riff from Clandestine's "Crawl" on "Soldier of No Fortune". No wonder it's the best song on the album!

Overall, it's what you'd expect from Entombed at this point in their career (if they even have anyone from the original band left). Solid groovy death metal - very listenable but unspectacular. Worth a couple listens if you like Entombed's other material, but you're not really missing much if you skip it.

This album pumps me up more than drinking two 5-Hour Energies.

Entombed's third release is a departure from the classic Swedish death metal style found on Clandestine, but the band still kicks just as much ass (if not MORE) on Wolverine Blues.

All the songs are loud, aggressive, balls to the wall METAL songs first and foremost, filled with pummeling riffs and raw UUNNNGGHH vocals.

My first expertise is in Metal, but I explore everything. Name any genre (prog! neofolk! reggae! country! experimental hip hop!) and I probably listen to at least a little of it.
