Unabletothinkofname's Review Thread

Post by Unabletothinkofname on Sun Oct 10, 2010 2:35 pm

Yes, that's right, Unabletothinkofname Reviews is goin' cross-platform! ...or cross-forum. Whatever the fuck it is.
Anyway, direct yer requests, queries, questions and general bullshitting about my reviews and how my opinion is law here. The reviews themselves will be posted in separate threads.

COMING UP:


A Buyer's Guide: Death Metal (different from how to buy, more like individual reviews, all positive.)

Retrospective: Godflesh (career overview sorta thing)


2011 Preview:
A look forward to next year with some of the albums expected from the likes of Machine Head, Opeth, Devildriver and more.

I approve. In a cat. In a dog. Smell the cats in your bank account.

Anyway, I mean, what? OK, good, I might read the reviews.

Not to hound on you or reviewing or anything, but it mitigates the absolutely massive amount of metal reviews on the Escapist, I'm all for it.

Looking forward to your thoughts on "There is a hell.."
Because despite hating that band, I've only heard good things about the album, so it should be interesting.

Well, I shall give you my personal assurances that of all the endless metal reviewers on the Escapist, Unable is most definitely the best. He could be a music journalist.

Then I'm more than willing to give reading it a try.

Often times User Reviews as shit written by people who often have no idea what they speak of. Reviewing music without mentioning the structure of music or what makes a certain song great other than ZOMG I CAN ROCK OUT SO HARD TOP THIS. People reviewing anime, games and movies based solely on story without mention of things like characterization, animation, acting, and theme. It sickens me to no end.

It's people like that who give amateur reviewers a bad name.

Thank you all for the nice comments, keeps me motivated. Razz

A little update for ya'll-I've been listening a lot to the new Murderdolls and Triptykon records, both of which are fantastic, if completely different from one another, Godflesh, and of course, the new Bring Me The Horizon record. I won't hint at my opinion, but the review should drop either tonight or tomorrow, hopefully, though I am at a party this weekend, so it might be next week.

How is the new Murderdolls? I was worried it would go too much into emo territory. I loved the first album though, if it's anything like that it's a buy from me.

I was actually surprised at how much I liked it. I wasn't a huge fan of the first album, but it's much heavier. Wednesday's voice doesn't do much for me, it's not emo, it's more...gothic, in terms of lyrics. Well, not exactly gothic, more Misfits, Tim Burton-y kind of lyrics. It is very good though, I'd give it an 8/10.

That sounds like an endorsement. I guess I know the first place I'll be spending my sweet-ass birthday money Very Happy

The Ziggaruts. Their debut album of spooky clanging noises in 2008 was lack lustre, but this new album of intense mathcore riffs over a loop of the lead singer sobbing and wanking into a tin bucket is really groundbreaking. Definitely one of my albums of the year, even including the Almighty Fudgepackets log awaited eight CD tour de force "These Feelings" in which the drummer filled his trousers with contact microphones than shat himself explosively for 9 hours until he was inside out.

Looking forward to these reviews, especially the death metal one. I've been really getting into the genre recently, so it'll be good to get some recommendations.

UNABLETOTHINKOFNAME IN GETTING OFF HIS ASS AND DOING SOME WORK SHOCKER

Anyway, I'm here to announce my next two reviews, and they aaare...



And...


So what drove me to dual-review two vastly different bands (heavy alt-rock and demented extreme metal)?
...
I bought both the CD's today, and they're both awesome, so, yeah, nothing deep about it.

COMING SOON

Whoa. Long time no update. Or review.

Anyway, I'm off to the Kerrang tour this Friday, to see The Wonder Years (not bad), Framing Hanley (AAAAAARGH FUCK NO), Four Year Strong (YEAHHHHHH) and Good Charlotte (meh).

As you can tell, I'm going purely for FYS. There'll be a review up at some point this weekend of it. That Alien review should also hopefully be along shortly.
