LasagnaZissou Review #121

A classic if there ever was one, the soundtrack to the seminal Television Series by David Lynch and Mark Frost is on par with the show.

Laura Palmer’s Theme was way over used in the show but here in the album it still holds its spot as a beautiful and creepy piano/synth piece. Audrey’s Dance and Dance Of The Dream Man sound like shit from that Scooby Doo Game on the GameCube I used to play as a kid and I mean that in the best way possible. Then of course ... read more

LasagnaZissou Review #120

Opeth goes Dad Rock and it isn’t all that bad. I’ve never really listened to Opeth outside of Blackwater Park and I can say for sure that this is not like Blackwater Park. From a record that’s heavy and death oriented to one that’s more progressive/hard rock if anything, there’s definitely a big tonal shift in their music.

The only reason I listened to this album anyways is because my dad got it on vinyl and we listened to it while ... read more

LasagnaZissou Review #119

This album really felt like you were floating down the most dreamy and serene river. However it kept this atmosphere boringly constant throughout the record. Eventually you can’t float forever and you’ll start to drown. That’s this album pretty much (those first few tracks really get you in a good mood though).

LasagnaZissou Review #118

I blew 6 hours on this album because I thought it was a neat concept and it could be good background music while reading. Even though it felt like a lazy concept in the first half (all he did was add distortion) it started getting more layers added to it as time went on. However as the music got more original, it grew more boring. I really don’t see much of a difference between the 80 minute chunks of stage 4 and stage 5 and it was just really dull stuff. Once ... read more

LasagnaZissou Review #117

I know I’ll get flack for this but “Some Rap Songs” is a generally unimpressive album and is probably the weakest in Earl’s catalogue.

I don’t see what’s so special about a bunch of oddly sampled beats over some decent rap for a short length of 25 mins.

Nothing about this album really stands out for me and a lot people claim “Riot!” to be one of the best songs when it’s just a minute long guitar based track like ... read more

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

Hello! I've just seen your A Quiet Farwell review and was wondering if my brand new review (unfinished essay) might get you thinking?


Music Fan From South Dakota

I have a rym account too but I prefer reviewing albums here.

Radiohead, Swans, Ween, Death Grips, Bjork are some of my favorites but there's loads of bands I'd call my faves.

I also number all of my reviews. Not because I want to keep track of how many reviews I've made, but because Zissou and Review rhyme and I thought that was kinda cool.
