ATR is such a weak joke of a band now, I don't even know where to begin.
But here they are again with this shitty new style of safe-edgy sloganeering garbage.
There's no balls to this. They are so tame now and polished, it's just boring.... and even ... See full review

*sigh*
bands, when will you learn that once your vocalist bails, your band is over?
with this new vocalist,... the singing sounds like every other generic power-metal band now.
ZP's vocals were different enough to stand out (while seeming fairly ... See full review

(for my full Exmilitary review.. see the original MP3 release submission)
But I'll say this here:

I see OFWGKTA mentioned alongside Death Grips way too often. Is it just because they're both "edgy" and current? Because that's about all they have in ... See full review

Don't get me wrong. I think this album is wonderful.... I love it... but definitely not as groundbreaking as Exmilitary.
(possibly due to it being on a major label and of course watered down some as a result. I mean, c'mon, no samples?!)

It's kind of ... See full review

I don't believe the stories Alec tells about this record's history for one second. They're the perfect cover though.
Alec is a master of altering/re-writing history to come up with whatever sounds best or coolest.
A perfect example is the story of the ... See full review

nah, dude, they've COMPLETELY lost their edge in every way imaginable.
The new music is weak. I'm not saying it has to sound like 1995 or The Future Of War.
But, totally objectively, this new album sucks.

I think most people misunderstand this CD. (and therefore rate it low).
Most compilations have a theme, a general vibe, etc. They're limited to a style or two. This isn't one of those kind of compilations. I treated this like a very personal mixtape. ... See full review

This is a gorgeous release, and another perfect step in their path.
it's a really interesting evolution:
they went from hardcore/crossover-thrash in the late 80s, to technical-deathmetal/prog-fusion in the early 90s, to proggy alternative rock/soft ... See full review

holyshit, Nic's vocals are irritating!
and besides this song just REALLY sucking overall in every way possible, ...the vocals were just mixed way too loud anyway.

Don't work with this guy.

We were working on the CONTINUE. SAVE. RETRY. compilation CD "together", though he really didn't do anything, it was all me. So we were splitting the cost of the manufacturing, and he didn't have his share at the moment of ... See full review

There's a lot to say here, so I'll try to keep it short and get the obvious outta the way:

I'll try to keep this fairly short:
Haters gonna hate, but this IS Kanye's finest moment. One of the best albums (of any genre) of the 2000s. And history will prove that.
It's his most honest performance and his most honest writing.

I'd like to tell the story of this record. I don't want to go on too long, but I don't want to leave anything out. I both love and absolutely hate this record. It was cursed from the very beginning. Cursed every single step of the way.

Sorry, but this thing is so stale sounding.
I've been into punk/hardcore over half my life, but this doesn't sound organic or honest to me.

This is exactly what I needed this year.
It's like a slightly more aggressive Techno Animal or ICE ...and besides those obvious two, many of the beats & overall production remind me of Shizuo's "Fuck Step '98" album or Fever's "Too Bad But True". ... See full review

As a huge ATR/DHR fan who's stayed true to the bone since 1996, I feel I can say this about a band I love to death:

Lovely, dreamy low prog/fusion album.
The highlight for me is definitely "All That Surrounds Pt1". Creeps in ultra-slowly. It's hypnotizing really.
It reminds me a lot of something Norihiro Tsuru would've composed for Arslan Senki.

This collection of tracks is pretty much absolutely perfect and totally unique. My only gripe with it at all is that I think "Microchipkinder" from Generation Star Wars should've been on here.

posted a comment on DJ Tiësto - Lethal Industry. over 8 years ago
this "classic" is just a ripoff of Alec Empire's "SuEcide" from 1992.
This isn't just kind of similar. He completely stole the extremely specific melody.
Tiesto, you're an un-original chump.

Actually.... I believe that was a vocoder, not autotune.

Everyone keeps calling this a breakcore album. This is clearly DnB.
Have these people even heard breakcore before?
These drums & their editing are far too close to late 90's Squarepusher to ever be considered breakcore.

Ususally people who hate DragonForce are pseudo-intellectual, posturing, beard-stroking twats who don't actually understand what rock/metal is about (especially power-metal). It's about energy. And DragonForce is 100% energy and they're not trying to ... See full review

I'm dissapointed that this is available only as MP3, because this is probably in the top 3 chiptune releases ever! Everything about this is absolutely perfect. High energy c-major chiptunes as they should be. Solid from beginning to end.

Complete and total rip-off of Ben Gibbard's (Postal Service, Deathcab For Cutie) style.
It's not as if it's just "inspired by" it, or takes a little influence from it here and there. This is blatant theivery of someone else's very very specific style ... See full review
