Oceansize - Relapse

Year: 2002
Type: EP
Genres (secondary genres): Art Rock / Space Rock (Shoegaze / Neo-Psychedelia)
Description [taken from my favourite rym reviewer]: Lots of Swervedriver/ Hum/ Catherine Wheel/ Monster Magnet-style bombast and atmosphere, and a lot of epic prog-metal musings that even Tool/ King Crimson fans could get into. The vocals are burly, yet just emo-ish enough to appeal to the fairer sex. "Amputee" is simply one of the most titanic anthems ever recorded. It was later re-recorded, in slightly neutered form, on band's debut album, Effloresce.
"You Wish" begins with ambient soundscape drones, followed by acoustic ruminations, then huge metal riffage, then it cycles back and forth through those various motifs, all topped with a really sweet chorus.

This is exactly what an EP by a young, hungry rock band should be. It's also pretty damn psychedelic, without even necessarily trying.

Album Title: So Long Astoria
Artist: The Ataris
Released: 2003
Description:This is The Ataris' first album on Columbia Records, having previously been signed to independent punk label Kung Fu Records. It peaked at No. 24 on the Billboard 200 and has been certified gold status. The album's title song alludes to the 1985 film The Goonies, which is set in Astoria, Oregon.

Its a very personal album for the most part. Most of the songs are based off of Kris Roe's (Lead Vocals) life. It ranges from his girlfriend, his childhood, his kid(?) and his general high -school and early band experience. Its one of the only albums I've bought recently and I really enjoyed it. Its pretty consistent, so you can really get a story out of it. Overall, its a great listen on a whole. Not many albums can accomplish that imo. There's really no bad songs on it.

Track Listing:

All songs written by Kris Roe, except where noted.

1. "So Long, Astoria" – 3:22
2. "Takeoffs and Landings" – 3:56
3. "In This Diary" – 3:54
4. "My Reply" – 4:14
5. "Unopened Letter to the World" – 2:38
6. "The Saddest Song" – 4:15
7. "Summer '79" – 3:57
8. "The Hero Dies in This One" (Roe, Mike Davenport, John Collura and Chris Knapp) – 4:07
9. "All You Can Ever Learn is What You Already Know" (Roe, Davenport, Collura and Knapp) – 3:31

8. "The Hero Dies in This One" (Roe, Mike Davenport, John Collura and Chris Knapp) – 4:07
9. "All You Can Ever Learn is What You Already Know" (Roe, Davenport, Collura and Knapp) – 3:31
10. "The Boys of Summer" (Don Henley and Michael Campbell) – 4:18
11. "Radio #2" – 3:20 (featuring backing vocals by Mike Herrera of MxPx)
12. "Looking Back on Today" – 3:53
13. "Eight of Nine" – 3:30
14. "I Won't Spend Another Night Alone" – 3:50 (hidden track)
15. "The Saddest Song (Acoustic)" – 4:09 (hidden track)
16. "Beautiful Mistake" - 3:13 (Japanese release)
17. "Rock 'N' Roll High School" - 2:17 (Japanese release)

Radio #2 is in reference to an earlier Ataris track "Radio Still Sucks" from the Let It Burn split with Useless ID.


Recommended Tracks: (My opinion)

- The Boys of Summer
- Summer of 79'
- In This Diary
- Radio #2
- The Hero Dies In This One
- The Saddest Song

I doubt anyone tried any of the albums I recommended in page 2, but if you did, tell me what you thought about it/them.

Here's a new recommendation, and it's a really interesting one:

Macha - Macha



Year: 1998
Type: Album
Genres (secondary genres): Experimental Rock / Post-Rock (Krautrock / World Music / Indorock)
Review by shockofDAYLIGHT, because he does it better than I ever will:
East and West collide and, in so doing, make a shimmering alloy of great beauty which will shift your paradigm of what music can be. Imagine an edgier, more kinetic Tortoise, with instruments hauled over to the U.S. from Indonesia. No joke; the band members, a bunch of white Georgian dudes, made multiple trips to Indonesia to study that music and brought home thousands of dollars worth of actual native instruments on which to make it. Several songs on here are among the greatest in the history of recorded music, including the three long, stunning instrumentals. The "pop" songs are shorter but every bit as mesmerizing. The singer doesn't have a traditionally great voice, but he's wise enough to not try to interfere with the dazzling instrumentation, which is of course the real star of the show.

This is currently ranked #606 for 1998? (Nov. 2009) [rateyourmusic]. Unbelievable. It massacres just about anything from that year, or from the entire decade, for that matter. Neutral Milk Hotel? OutKast? Refused? Quit embarrassing yourselves. Did I mention it will shift your paradigm of what music can be? Even the cover art stares you down and says "Yeah, I'm 'bout to lay the gauntlet down. You got a problem with that?"

Best tracks: Light the Chinese Flower / The Short Life / When They First Saw the Floating World / Sama Sama / Double Life.

Read a fascinating and very long article on the band from January '99 here


Short comment: As I put it, this album seems like it's the kind of pretentious shit you don't understand but like because it makes you cool; well, believe me, music doesn't get much easier to listen to than this.

Genre: Heavy Metal/Trash Metal

Ashes of the Wake is the fourth studio album by American heavy metal band Lamb of God, released in 2004. The album debuted at number 27 on the Billboard 200, selling 35,000 copies in its first-week and was rated by Guitar World as the 49th greatest Guitar Album of all Time. The album is more political than their previous work, aimed at the war in Iraq, with songs such as "Ashes of the Wake" (which includes snippets of former staff sergeant and former Marine Jimmy Massey in an interview after his return from the Iraq War), "Now You've Got Something to Die For", "One Gun" and "The Faded Line". As of August 2010, Ashes of the Wake has sold 398,000 copies in the United States, making it their highest selling album there

1. "Laid to Rest" 3:50

10. "Ashes of the Wake" (written by Willie Adler) 5:45
11. "Remorse Is for the Dead" (written by Mark Morton) 5:41

The bold ones are recommended


The Asylum is the place for me. That way i can talk to myself and people considering it natural.

It's Dark and Hell is Hot by DMX

Genre(s): Hardcore Hip-Hop
Tracks: 19
Length: 65:15
Description: The album features a lot of extreme lyrics about violence in songs such as 'X Is Coming' or even in Intro. The topics vary from God, love, to rage, crime, etc etc. Any hip hop head, even RejecteDeity who recommended that Deltron 3030, would know this as definitely one of the classics from back in the day.

Recommended tracks:
Stop Being Greedy
DMX raps in 2 different voices to symbolize different sides and thoughts that come with them; the smooth voice represents no trouble while the angry voice represents hostility and trouble.
X Is Coming
This song is one of the rawest songs on the album, with topics varying between murder, rape, indignation, and violence. The chorus should be very familiar.


The whole album is great, those are just the 2 songs that stuck in my head from when I think about the album. A definite necessity for hip hop fans.

1. "Ambivalence Avenue" – 3:42
2. "Jealous of Roses" – 2:35
3. "All the Flowers" – 1:05
4. "Fire Ant" – 4:58
5. "Haikuesque (When She Laughs)" – 3:32

Bibio's music has been described as being an electronica mix of The Beach Boys and The Beatles. His Experimental style makes every song of his a true work of art. I highly reccomend giving this album a try if you're into electronica and/or folk; it doesn't disappoint the ears. If you hadn't noticed, I bolded songs that you should really listen to.

Between The Buried And Me - Colors



Genre: Progressive Metal

Length: 64:21

1. Foam Born (a) The Backtrack - 2:13
2. Foam Born (b) The Decade of Statues - 5:20
3. Informal Gluttony - 6:47
4. Sun of Nothing - 10:59
5. Ants of the Sky - 13:10
6. Prequel to the Sequel - 8:36
7. Viridian - 2:51
8. White Walls - 14:13

There isn't much I can say about this album other than it is a truly unique work of art. This album was written as one continuous piece of music and flows as such. It gets quirky at times and takes some getting used to, but it is worth it.
