Yeah I know. The last time I actually owned this album was on cassette back in high school. Return to Flesh is so damn epic as is The Pick Axe Murders and the title track. Fantastic album through and through. Corpsegrinder is fantastic and I actually love me some Gallery of Suicide and Kill but my favorites are with Chris Barnes. Eaten Back to Life being my all time favorite from them.

Picked up Anaal Nathrakh's 'Vanitas' yesterday. It's REALLY good.

I also grabbed Big Boi's new one, 'Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors', and if you like hip hop and his past stuff, that's definitely worth checking out. I think it's awesome and it will probably end up on my overall top 10 for the year.

Banshee - 'Mindslave' - this new album that has totally blown me away. New vocalist, George Call (ex - Omen and Aska), is one of metal's most underrated vocalists and does a sterling job on this release. Check them out if you like traditional American heavy metal with sprinklings of NWOBHM.

Circle of Contempt- Entwine the Threads (EP): Pretty solid album, much more techy than their first release.
Eye of the Enemy- Weight of Redemption: Good old Aussie Thrash, reminded me a lot of a harsher version of Testament.

Sorry, Ian, I just saw this. I've been so busy and haven't been around the past few weeks.

Anyway, to answer your question, yes I do. And this new Big Boi album is incredible. It has been on heavy, heavy rotation since I got it.

You may or may not be surprised, but I'm not a fan. I can respect their talent, but their music just doesn't do it for me. All the times I've played Southernplaya, ATLiens, Aquemini and Stankonia, none of them ever grew on me. After Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, I knew once and for all I would never like OutKast.

All this leads to my question. Does Big Boi's new record sound like OutKast? I've always liked Big Boi, so I wouldn't mind hearing him on joints that don't sound like retreads of stuff I never liked to begin with. The album has an awful lot of guest appearances. Not a good sign.

Ian, nothing surprises me with you anymore. haha (Because stuff on the internet can be taken wrong, I should point out I mean nothing insulting by that. You just can be unpredictable at times.)

Anyway, it's different from OutKast, but probably not different enough that you would fall in love with it. There are a lot of guest appearances, and they all work really well imo. He has some great female guests that sing some really great R&B-type hooks on several songs. I would say it's definitely worth checking out since you like hip hop - honestly, this might end up being my AOTY....I really think it's that good and everyone I've played it for fell in love with it - but hear it for free if you can before you drop any cash on it.

EDIT: Just wanted to add, one of the reasons I really like OutKast and Big Boi is the samples they use and the music they write reminds of the vibe on old Tribe and De La records and the lyrical flow is reminiscent of classic Pharcyde. Hip hop that is heavily influenced by - and borrows a lot from - old classic jazz, funk and R&B is the stuff that really grabs my attention. I'm not as exposed to hip hop, so there aren't a lot of newer hip hop acts that I'm familiar with that I really like.

To get back to the topic at hand, I picked up the new Incantation last week and I really like it. The new Anaal Nathrakh kills as well.

I LOVE ATCQ, De La Soul and Pharcyde. So that's interesting. I personally don't think they could sound any farther apart. Two east coast acts, one west, and OutKast from the south. They all sound completely different to me. You like Digable Planets? They'd be right up your alley for sure. Both their albums are classics.

I'm glad you said what you did, because I know what I like to avoid, and R&B influence is a big no-no for me. The forced "soulful" vocals and ceaseless glissando runs just kill it for me. I listen to hip hop to hear MC's rap, not singers sing.

C. Harding says:
Yeah, I love Digable. And I agree they all sound very different, but the influences are similar. I think so, anyway.

I get where you're coming from on the R&B/hip hop thing. I guess to me, it's like hip hop's version of Opeth's growl/clean vocals. I like the contrast.

EDIT: BTW, have you seen 'Beats, Rhymes & Life', the doc Michael Rappaport filmed about ATCQ? It's an incredible film.

2ND EDIT: I don't know if you've heard, but The Pharcyde (what's left of them, anyway) is touring and doing the 'Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde' album in its entirety. That's one album I won't mind hearing performed all the way through. I've already got my tickets for the March show in the Boston area.

A customer says:
I don't hear any contrast. R&B is almost *too* fitting, like it's a tired cliche at this point. Rapping and opera vocals would be a contrast. A very good one, I suspect.

Isn't that the movie Q-Tip hates because it made him look like a "pompous bastard"? I should see it for that reason alone.

Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde is beyond classic. Probably my second favorite west coast hip hop album ever behind Season of da Siccness.

Hey Citizen Death, may I ask where you got In the Maze of Kadath? That's one I've looked for in the past, but could not find.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 9:50:41 AM PST
C. Harding says:
Yes, Q-Tip went back and forth on his opinion of the film. You DEFINITELY should see it!

We agree on 'Bizarre Ride...' fact, it may be my favorite hip hop album ever. It's either that or 'The Low End Theory'. I can't wait for that show!

You. You have good taste. TLET is by far my favorite Tribe album. Have you heard Train of Thought by Reflection Eternal? An album that rarely gets discussed, but easily in my top 10 all-time, eschewing classic status and shooting right into near masterpiece territory. My top 3 is like...
Black Moon - Enta Da Stage
Ultramagnetic MC's - Critical Beatdown
Nas - Illmatic

Can you tell I'm biased? Heh.

I'll definitely check that movie out. I dig Rapaport's work to begin with, so I've no excuse not to.

Pretty sweet you get to see that show. I wanted to see GZA perform Liquid Swords in its entirety, but he ain't rollin' through my town.

The only one I've heard that you listed is 'Illmatic'....of course. Great album. I'll definitely look into the others.

So, how do you feel about The Roots? They're one of my favorites. Since you don't like the R&B mixed in, I'm guessing you don't care for them a whole lot, but what about the older stuff like 'Do You Want More?!!!??!'?

No, love The Roots. I don't *hate* R&B per se, it's just the real overwrought, cheesy stuff I don't care for. Think "One Day" by UGK = good, "Temperature's Rising" by Mobb Deep = corny. The bad seems to greatly outweigh the good, but not The Roots. Things Fall Apart, that's my favorite. Classic, classic, classic.

There's a seller on e-bay who i buy cds from. He lives in France and has alot of really rare chit. Well, i normally spend a bunch of money on his merchandise and when you do he sometimes throws in a CD-r with all kinds of amazing stuff on it. The first 5 bands i listed where on the CD-r. He gave 3 other ones in the past. Pretty cool dude if you ask me! So this would be listed under "acquired" metal rather than bought.
