9 Ene 2009, 22:26 de wajzgajHere are the 'older' records I got in 2008 and listened to the most.
Ministry - The Land of Rape and Honey
Ministry - Psalm 69
Before NIN, industrial music was dominated by Ministry. I don't know how I managed to avoid this band for so long. They have all the ingredients I like: distorted vocals and guitars, loud drum machines and an overall no bullshit attitude. Anyway I first came across their new covers record called Cover Up. Nothing special there, but it sparked my interest to dig deeper and what I've found, I liked. The Land Of Rape And Honey is their best album with 'Stigmata' and 'You Know What You Are' being my favourite songs. Psalm 69 is their breakthrough record. It's a lot more guitar based then it's predecessors, but still maintains the same high quality.
Nick Cave and Warren Ellis - The Proposition OST
This is my music-to-fall-asleep-in-the-afternoon album. Eerie stuff.
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Pretty much the definite shoegaze-dream pop-whatever record.

sablespecter's Album of the Year for 1983 (RDF: 89%)
Three in a row?! Ah, you must think this is getting boring! Well, lookit it my charts and it's no surprise, is it? I'm only being honest. This is in fact my favorite album of the original Dickinson era. (Tough to compare to the present, but give 25 years of listening to the albums from this decade and then check back. PoM could still be my favorite, then, too!)
So how come it only scores an 89% RDF? The only reason that this album doesn't reach a perfect 100% RDF isn't because I don't like one track. As explained in a discussion with Grant (about a week or so before the 25th anniversary of this album!), it's because two tracks earn pink dots. If you look at the rules for the AotY awards, you see that pink dots count for a half-point, leaving us with 8/9 or 89%.
OK, so why is POM the AotY over the runner-up, which scored 100%? Am I just playing favorites since…

More pressure mounting everywhere on the labels to dropped the damned DRM:
Digital developments could be tipping point for MP3

7 Abr 2007, 15:42 de smastroyin1983 is pretty significant in terms of music for me. Not necessarily because of it's artistic significance. No, it is because of two events that happened. First, I finally used my own money to buy my first music. FTR, the first piece of music I bought for myself was Frontiers. By the end of the year I would have a small but significant tape collection. The second event was that my parents got cable, and with it, the wonders of MTV. Now remember this is 1983 when MTV was actually about playing music and not 13413515151 reality shows about idiotic people I care nothing about. But, they seem to be making money, so what do I know.
Anyway, let's get to the list.
5. Kill 'Em All.
I have to admit that there are not an awful lot of metal bands that I like. I find this really strange because while I'm not a huge fan of the genre in general, I can never get enough of Metallica. Well, at least, the pre-Bob Rock Metallica. Something about their composition combined with their talent makes the music almost symphonic. …
