Yeah, I agree. Quite pleasantly surprised with that one. Heavy, melodic, good songwriting.

I have not posted on here in a very long time. I tend to leans towards the Melo Death, Viking Metal, etc. side of things.

For all you Bathory fans out there you have to check out the band "Bloodshed Walhalla" from Italy.

For all the fantastic metal that has been released so far this year my favorite still remains the album "Nether Collapse" the first release from the band Vinterblot who also hail from Italy.

Currently waiting on Aeon - "Aeons Black"

A friend of mine suggested Repulsion's Horrified. It's different that's for sure. I liked it and will give it another spin very soon.

You will be thoroughly happy with True Sound of the Underground. That is an awesome album to lift iron to. Genesis.....not so much.

What can you possibly say is unfavorable about any Genesis album during the Gabriel era? I'm all ears. Trespass is amazing and portends the sheer magnificence that was to follow. Please don't be one of those who hears the name Genesis and automatically thinks of Invisible Touch, effectively disregarding that they created an unparallelled work of art with The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway decades prior. Ok, ok, I'm off my soap box, you're right, it isn't the best work out album, but it is phenomenal.

I have just finished listening to Genesis-Trespass and this album is not that great. It is also not terrible either. I would have liked it more if the keyboards were less prominent in the mix. I was first introduced to early Genesis by seeing a cover band called The Musical Box. They performed The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway in its entirety, and played 'Visions of Angels' from Trespass as part of their encore.

I am now listening to Sister Sin and they rock!

You're really not helping my argument here dude...

I'm actually listening to Trespass as I type this. Beg to differ. It's magnificent. Tony Banks keys are signature to every era of Genesis and much like Yes and King Crimson, they are used to wonderful effect. The Musical Box are the real deal. They rendered that era of Genesis like pros. Selling England by the Pound is hands down my favorite Genesis record. Brilliance.

Between Trespass and Disintegration, you sure have an average-at-best-album fetish, Bobage. I find The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and Pornography, respectively, to be far superior, but opinions are opinions.

Conversely, your infinitely exquisite tastes see you touting gurgling brutal slam, stretching to grasp unfounded comparisons between hip hop and metal every chance you get, and proclamations that The Princess Bride isn't all that great. Credibility be damned!

Seriously, I can't believe that you think Disintegration is average at best. Monumental album. Pornography may be superior to you, but that doesn't make Disintegration any less potent. Nothing about Gabriel-era Genesis is average, so that's just silly talk.

A customer says:
Pornagraphy was monumental. Disintegration was overwrought and boring to me. Those keyboard drones were downright soporiferous

I love The Godfather, Blade Runner, Terminator 2, A Clockwork Orange, Raging Bull, Lord of the Rings, Seven Samurai, The Exorcist and at least a couple hundred other movies that millions upon millions of other people consider great. My opinions on movies can tend to lean very close to popular opinion. Am I not allowed to dislike ONE movie that I honestly consider overrated? Yeah, I didn't like The Princess Bride. I thought it was maudlin, corny, and relied on a clever script in lieu of actual character development. C'mon, this is from the man who made This Is Spinal Tap. TPB was an egregious letdown.

Disintegration and Pornography are good, but.............. The Head On The Door is the most awesomest Cure cd ever. Very uplifting and bouncy.

Head On The Door is awesome. They really didn't misstep until Wish. Stunning live band as well. They still got it.

All three of those Cure are brilliant; and like Akercocke, my favorite can very from listen to listen.

I think the whole genre of "goth" is overrated. Though some of it can be sad, it's not on as much on the depressing side as I thought it would be. Some of it doesn't capture much emotion at all (Bauhaus). Some of it is quite corny (Christian Death).

Based on that, Disintegration is one of the saddest albums ever, in popular music.

Bobage says:
Disintegration is lush, bleak, and completely enveloping in its melancholy. One of my favorite albums in any genre. I don't know if you consider them goth, but Joy Division is also some of the most wonderful sorrow out there. One of a kind sound and a the hopelessness in their writing combined with how we all know Ian Curtis's life turned out, make for a unique journey.

A customer says:
Bauhaus and Christian Death are legends in the goth game. In the Flat Field captures little emotion? Only Theatre of Pain is CORNY? Please. That's like saying Illmatic's wack. No way, no how.

I don't know what you're talking about with unfounded hip hop comparisons.

Well played man. Illmatic is the shit.

(Going to work it while I can)

In all seriousness, Illmatic or Reasonable Doubt?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 20, 2012 5:39:10 PM PST
Neither a fan nor a hater. You know the few bands I can't stand. Here's another band I loathe: The Moody Blues. ;)
