Pinned Review

Merzbow - Merzbox
NR
OK boys, this is it. I'm finally taking the dive into Merzbow's Merzbox. 50 CDs showing the history of Masami Akita's progress, from his earliest works in 1979 and 1980, all the way through to the late '90s when he was already releasing all those classics you're most likely aware of if you're reading this review. All 50 discs being some of the most obscure in his discography, some being previously unreleased.

Why am I doing this? Don't even ask, because I haven't got a good explanation for ... read more

平沢進 [Susumu Hirasawa] - Paranoia Agent Original Soundtrack
85
I've been re-watching Paranoia Agent recently, and it seriously surprised me how much I had been sleeping on the soundtrack before. Satoshi Kon's magnum opus about hysteria, alienation, desensitisation, escapism, and, well, plain fear sure is elevated to even greater heights by its music, excellently composed by Susumu Hirasawa.

This whole album gives you that same strange, uneasy vibe that the show itself gives, and perhaps even enhances those same feelings within the show itself. Whenever I ... read more

Pharoah Sanders - Elevation
95
Wait a minute, this isn't Elevation by the Black Eyed Peas!
Quadeca - I Didn't Mean To Haunt You
45
Wait a minute, this isn't Let My Children Hear Music by Charles Mingus!

Edit: Actual review because I don't need joke reviews on my page.

Now that I've given this more listens than I can reasonably justify, I can confirm that this is, in fact, mediocre. I've tried to understand the hype, and while I can appreciate certain aspects like the instrumentals, the concept, the ambition, and especially the closing track which really does stick out as the only thing here deserving of the hype, I just ... read more

Polyphia - Remember That You Will Die
NR
Yeah, I don't think I'll ever get Polyphia. I feel like these guys should be well up my alley - I usually ADORE guitar wank music. I usually ADORE any sort of instrumental wankery music. You got the talent and want to show it off? Hell yeah I'm gonna be interested in finding a new artist to be jealous of! But time and again, Polyphia completely fail to actually make an all-round interesting song.

When the song isn't a bland prog rock-infused dubstep song, it's sounding like Tim Henson ... read more

Arctic Monkeys - The Car
NR
Mid band makes painfully mid album to high praise and shock when others don't like listening to 37 minutes of directionless mediocrity and rehashing the same idea over 10 tracks.

after a conclusive study, I see I might've polarized some people with the change of my artistic direction on my recent album, which I think is my personal favorite release of mine. is there anything you think I could improve on? and once again, thanks for listening. i appreciate it
