Pinned Review

If In A Silent Way perfected the jazz-rock genre, then Bitches Brew took the idea even further, adding a more avant-garde and psychedelic nature to it, making it even more interesting and overall more fun.

In the late '60s Davis began experimenting with electric instruments, ultimately resulting in the masterpiece, In A Silent Way. He then threw that more basic jazz-rock sound out the window and went full avant-garde, making an album that hasn't been replicated by anyone. Really, Bitches Brew ... read more

I've finally found it; the trve rival to Apator's Masturbate In Praise Of Satan. After many months of looking, even trying my best to find more of Apator's early material with no success (still looking though), I've finally found the trvest kvlt music ever. The absolute pinnacle of black metal. This shit gives Transilvanian Hunger a run for its money. What Czarci Świt did here was define everything the black metal genre is all about, and it's a fucking travesty that it's so unknown.

A pretty cool debut from new death metal band Kommand, though admittedly not all that great.

A 23 minute album that could pass for an EP that really doesn't leave much of an impact, but does give us six perfectly fine death metal tracks. There honestly isn't too much to say about this, but I will say that there are quite a few headbangable riffs on this thing. The middle-to-last few tracks in particular have some of the best moments I've heard in death metal all year (which admittedly isn't ... read more

Pike #283

Buckethead's fifth release of the year is by far the most underwhelming one yet. Starting off with the ten minute title track that doesn't add anything new to Buckethead's discography outside of good playing that is honestly only decent when compared to the rest of his discography. After that, there really isn't much to really justify giving this a full listen, outside of the two closing tracks, both of which are live performances of really good songs that were on previous Pike ... read more

Four minutes and thirty three seconds of pure silence. It's kind of hard to really talk about 4'33" in an objective way. This is an album that relies heavily on its statement of literally anything being music as long as an instrument is involved, even if said instrument isn't even touched for a specific period of time. That on its own is interesting, so a record that is literally him doing just that is interesting. But looking at this from an objective viewpoint, this is the last thing on ... read more

AZEEZUS has been a record that I've been interested in since AZIZ started releasing singles for it a few months ago. To say the least, it has certainly lived up to expectations.

One of the things that really made AZIZ's music stick out to me from every other AOTY artist is his darker, more ambient sound. I've always felt like he has always excelled at this kind of sound, and AZEEZUS is no different from that. The darker atmosphere at times really grabbed me, and the samples also worked ... read more

The second single for my Halloween project is out now! Would love to get your opinion on it! I'll also be reworking the first single to sound better and fit the project more!

You seem to give Neil Young a lot of middling-poor scores, are most of his late-career albums mediocre? Do you think it's worth doing a discog dive for him?
