Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Top 5 Albums of 2006
« on: December 24, 2006, 11:39 PM »
I felt compelled to comment on some of these.

RHCP have been making the same album for about 10 years now. Deftones SNW is a great album, furthur solidified after having just seen them live, but there are a few tracks that REALLY bog it down, i.e. "Pink Cellphone". Disturbed, same music, different album. Their songs are basically interchangable. Catchy, but monotonous.

As for what I would pick, submitted expecting some backlash, representing my favorite genres.


Torture Killer's - "Swarm!"

This was a much needed return to straight up DEATH METAL. Track listings, song material, the looks, everything. Death metal has lost its roots, and this is the way back.


Protest the Hero's - "Kezia"

A concept album as a major label debut is ballsy, IMO. This was EASILY one of my albums of the year. It's incredibly original, enjoyable, and fluid considering the bending of genres and technicality. One of the first "punk" bands I can really enjoy.


Gnarls Barkley's - "St. Elsewhere"

One of musics most important albums. Ever. Pure genius.


Mastodon's - "Blood Mountain"

This is probably the best full-fledged rock album I've heard in along time, and really opened my ears to prog-rock on the whole. I tended to keep away after hearing "Blood and Thunder" so often off of "Leviathan", now I fully embrace it. I apologize in advance, but I have a tie for Number 1.


Hatebreed's - "Supremacy"

What Hatebreed did with this album has ruined bands in the past. They were forced tochange their style because of copycats, but for the better. No more straight up yelling on this one. Jamey Jasta actually has some "choral articulation", and it felt more personal than anything he's ever written. Just a brutal, brutal metal-core album.


Killswitch Engage's - "As Daylight Dies"

Overall, one of the best crafted albums I have ever heard. KSE have their own sound, but on this one, Howard Jones' range is just insane, as is how he can flow from each one into another seamlessly. I've listened to this about half as many times as I have Gnarls Barkley's album, which is roughly 100 to KSE's 50.
This is an essential album for metal fans that can appreciate a little emotion.

I caught Deftones at First Avenue last night along with Glassjaw, on their reunion tour. Glassjaw were actually better than I remembered, which says a lot because I'm not a fan, really. Deftones were just insane, pulling off a set that lasted an hour and 45 minutes, with 3 small intermissions/breaks. Great mix of their entire catalogue, and hearing it live made me appreciate the new album a little more.

I stuck around after the show, and although he seemed a little hesitant, given the show's duration, Chino stopped and signed a few posters and I was able to get a picture in before he boarded the bus. The 11 year wait was well worth it!

I finished through Medium on GH1. I'm just not quick enough for anything more, which is fine. My friend bought GH2 and brought it over. The graphics are much better, and even have HDTV settings to accomodate for lag, etc. As far as favorite songs, "Woman" is a lot of fun, and I purchase the All That Remains and Shadows Fall songs from the shop.

The vocals for "Mother" are atrocious. Just terrible.

I made some new friends as of late, which kind of rekindled my love for music, so we've been doing some local shows, as well as semi-national acts. Caught Through the Eyes of the Dead along with The Acacia Strain and Light This City 2 weeks ago. Plan on seeing Acacia Strain when they come back in January with JOB FOR A COWBOY, as well as bound to be killer show of God Forbid with Mnemic. Mastodn will be in town February 5th, which I can't wait for.

Minnesota seems to get snubbed on shows, though.

I still own a VCR, and only for one VHS tape. Al Jolson's "The Jazz Singer". It has yet to be released on DVD, and it has yet to show up on Comcast. If it does, I can DVR it. Til then, the jurassic POS is staying put.

I caught it this afternoon and was mildly amused. Honestly, it was too unbalanced to seem credible. Both the movie and the character, that is. Some funny quips, some shockingly ignorant remarks, and some immature attention grabbing moments to create controversy and sell tickets.

Yours truly, on the scene, posted up like a mailbox.

I think Scorsese is incredibly overrated, and has gone to this well way too many times. I'm going to check it out tonight, minus the Oscar buzz in mind, given movies like this don't win Oscars to begin with.

I've uh..pretty much sold all my DVD's. I think I have 45 left now? Just don't feel the need to own a "library" anymore. I like the money a little more. Besides, with the new G2 HD-DVD players, and me being so spoiled on HD programming, I think I'll go that route.
