Pain Of Salvation? Tuneless junk.
I hadn't listened to Pain Of Salvation since their first 4 albums. Largely because they were never my absolute favorite band to begin with, and even fan reaction to everything since had been tepid. But early this year, I checked out In The Passing Light Of Day, since I was going to see them live, and I liked it quite a bit. I consider it a very good album.
Iced Earth? Shamelessly ripping themselves off.
I consider this a strong album. Better than Plagues Of Babylon, not as good as Dystopia. But "Black Flag" is one of the best songs they've ever done, and I hope to see it performed on their inevitably upcoming tour.
Adrenaline Mob? I don't even need to say it.
I'm not a huge fan, but I thought the album was OK, and there are 2 particularly strong tracks IMO. The leadoff single was not one of those two, incidentally.
Danzig? The guy's a shell of himself. It's embarrassing to listen to him now.
I never listened to Danzig much. Maybe I'll check out a track or two just to see what everyone is slamming, lol.
Quiet Riot? It sounds like a demo sung by a eunuch. The effort is pathetic.
I don't know if I've ever heard anything by them other than their couple of 80s radio hits.
Dead Cross? We learn why drummers rarely are allowed to write songs. It's Mike Patton farting at the audience for half an hour. Wretched.
Never heard of it.
And that doesn't even include Steel Panther, who would be inoffensive enough, if not for the fact that the joke has run its course. There are no more new ways to talk about banging strippers. Their music is lousy, and now it's sad to listen to them recycle the same jokes that were lame to begin with.
Their music has never been that particularly awesome, but the first couple albums were probably the best. Their shtick can still be funny, but was never that uproariously hilarious to begin with.
I already have trouble believing how much horrible music there has been, and we've still got five months to go. Is this the worst year ever?
