5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive!, November 3, 2000
This review is from: Hybrid Theory (Audio CD)
I was expecting an extremely angry experience with this album. And in many ways I got it, but the rap aspect of it really surprised me. With the trite-ness of Limp Bizkit, Korn, and a handful of other Metal-Rap bands, I wasn't expecting much.
(01) Papercut - With coool guitars to start this track out joined by the rapper (not clear on the names) who has a very decent flow to his music, this is a GOOD song. The rhymes are pretty good throughout as well. {5}
(02) One Step Closer - You all know this song don't you? I LOVE this song. It has a good guitar riff with a pretty decent set of lyrics. The first half of the song is somewhat stereotypical "Generation X Noise" but at the halfway point when he starts screaming "SHUTUP!" it's very intense and easy to spaz out to. {4}
(03) With You - The rapper starts out this song kinda slow, then it picks up with another good riff on the guitars, and the other singer still has a good scream throughout this song. I love the dub on their voices, too. {4}
(04) Points Of Authority - The rapper starts out this song kinda dumb-ly with an awkward rhyme, but the loud singer has a good melodic part while screaming throughout as well. {3}
(05) Crawling - The song starts with a loud explosion of guitars with the other singer yelling, and then it slows down so he can sing some soft, melodic verses, before the rapper jumps in with a quick line or two (he seems to have a back seat on this song), before the guitars explode again. The other singer screams, and then it slows down again for some truly beautiful singing. Impressive. {5}
(06) Runaway - Another good melodic part by singer #2 and the rapper has a back seat on this song as well. The melody is carried through until the 2 minute mark, where he just starts yelling, with an explosively angry part. {5}
(07) By Myself - The rapper takes the forefront on this track with some mediocre rapping, although it progressively gets better over the course of the track. The second singer really knows what he's doing here. He holds the melody together through the mid-Loud parts and joins the noise of the guitars through the LOUD parts with a tortured scream. {4}
(08) In The End - The second singer has a really great voice, he starts this track out with a quiet, melody, and gradually progresses a little bit louder (he never really screams in this song, and he still sounds awesome!), and he still has a great melody. The rapper has a really good flow in this song. The dub on the rappers voice is awesome too. One of my favorite tracks on the album. {5}
(09) A Place For My Head - This song starts out with the rapper doing a great job! The chorus is kinda awkward. The rapper has SKILLZ! He compares with Eminem's speed in this song. And then it gets loud with the second singer going crazy. Good song. {4}
(10) Forgotten - Uh oh. Limp Bizkit flashback. Fortunately, the song gets somewhat better. The rapper does an overall good job in this song, despite sounding like Fred (retch!). It's an ok song. {3}
(11) Cure For The Itch - Hm. This song starts wierd, with a wierd sample, and some other wierd samples. The instrumental part is very, very cool though. (It reminds me a lil bit of Aphex Twin.) {4}
(12) Pushing Me Away - The second singer has a good melodic part of this song. He really has a great voice. The lyrics are surprisingly well written as well. The rapper has a back seat on this one again, but when he is there, he does a pretty good job. {5}
This is a great CD. If you like loud stuff, or if you like melodic stuff and can tolerate loud stuff, you should definitely get this CD. NOW.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty friggin cool., October 30, 2000
This review is from: Richard D. James Album (Audio CD)
I like this CD. Not the best Aphex Twin out there, but nonetheless pretty cool.
(1) 4 - This is one cool beat. It's a precussion based tune, and it's got a lot of energy. The beat is really fast and it's a very well done song. {5}
(2) Cornish Acid - Hmm. This is very not Aphex Twin style. Lot's of bass and wierd scratchy sound. {2}
(3) Peek 824545201 - OW. This has some really harsh squeal sounds, and if you have it remotely loud, prepare to turn it down. {1}
(4) Fingerbib - Alright! This is pretty cool. Still not very Aphex Twin style, but still. It's got a lot of bass and some cool synth sounds too. {5}
(5) Corn Mouth - Ok. So here's another song full of energy and beat. This is more breakbeat then Richard's previous style. {3}
(6) To Cure A Weakling Child - Here we go. This is a very cool song, using children's voices and some other cool sounds. It's also got a drum and synth in the background. {4 1/2}
(7) Goon Gumpas - This is a pretty odd song. Using a circus-y style music, it kind of reminds me of Moby's style (a little bit). {3}
(8) Yellow Calx - This is a pretty cool song. It again has a sharp squeal noise for part of the track, just not as prominent as Peek 824545201. It has some pretty cool slow parts which then bust into a cool, fast beat. {3}
(9) Girl/Boy Song - Wow! This is IMHO one of the best techno songs to come out in a long time. Starting in a kind of mellow symphonic stage, it goes into a great beat, with a great synth behind it. It feels like there's an entire symphony making this track. WOW! {5}
(10) Logan Rock Witch - Uh... This is one of the stranger songs on the album. It has a kind of wierd BOING BOING drum beat, with a slide whistle in the background. The beat seems kind of cool. And the bell in the background is pretty cool too. {4}
(11) Milkman - Some people will criticize this song for it's somewhat inappropriate lyrics (that's right Richard sings on this track) but uh... hm. It's kind of catchy, but it's just IMO in bad taste. He has a real soothing voice in this, but well, I dunno, maybe you'll like it. {2}
(12) Inkey$ - This has a very breakbeat sound from the start, and the bassy noises is kind of wierd. This sounds remind me of a subway. It's pretty cool. {4}
(13) Girl/Boy Song (18 pounds Snare Rush Mix) - Wow. Another great song, even if it is a remix, it has a whole new sound. {5}
(14) Beetles - Very cool. Richard sings on this track too, and now it's more appropriate for younger ears. This has a really cool synth, with Richard singing about his beetles. {4}
(15) Girl/Boy Song (Redruth Mix) - Cool! Another remix of a great song, this one almost surpasses the original! {5}

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweeeeeet., October 13, 2000
This review is from: The Fragile (Audio CD)
This album is very, very, very cool. Comprised of over 2 hours of, in my opinion, some of Trent Reznor's best work, it's definitely worth whatever you need to pay for it. I would buy this album just to listen to it a few times. I've listened to this album maybe 20+ times, and I can honestly say I've heard something new every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of all time., October 13, 2000
This review is from: The Downward Spiral (Audio CD)
I listen to this practically every day, I have for the past year and a half. This album really flows. It has a story to it, though it is fictitious. A man goes through various levels of hatred and self-loathing, becoming less and less human. Then finally in track 13, he kills himself. This is THE BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME. BUY IT NOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frickin GENIUS., October 13, 2000
This review is from: Undertow (Audio CD)
This album is great. Wow. Undertow is both highly enjoyable to listen to and extremely disturbing at the same time. The depth of Maynards lyrics will actually make you think about life and religion while head banging. Then some other lyrics will make you go "EEEEEWWWWWWW". It's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow., September 22, 2000
This review is from: Mer De Noms [Explicit] (Audio CD)
I cannot believe this CD. Wow. This album has more life and feeling than any other CD I've heard in quite a while. Some of the songs really have a hardcore, edgy style to them, while others have a very slow passion to it. Compare Judith to Orestes and you'll see exactly what I mean.
