Crashdiet - The Savage Playground

Recommended Posts

Finally got this disc to sound good - set up my old demon amp with arcam cd and big Senn cans.

 

Hearing the detail now - sounds pretty damned good actually.

 

The beginning of Excited sounds great!! & Snakes.

 

This disc is still firmly in my top 10.

 

I've bought 3 discs so far this year, so it's in my top 10 as well :)

Ha ha yeah I haven't bought that many but I've heard loads on Spotify.

 

I'm not even sure if I've bought 10 to be honest?? 7 or 8 maybe.

They have a collection of demos available for download in their shop. It includes 9 demos of songs which didn't make it onto Generation Wild and The Savage Playground plus the demo version of 'Change the World'. There are some great tracks on offer, so I'd recommend it to every Crashdiet fan on here, although it is quite pricey.

Wait, judging from the sound quality, I thought "The Savage Playground" WAS a collection of demos... :whistle:

 

Seriously, I was all over this. Ran to their site and prepared to get some "new" Crashdiet tunes. Then I saw the price. I"ll be damned if I'm spending $30 for a download of some demos.

Yeah, I was lucky, that I had a 25% off coupon, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it neither.

 

Irony aside, I actually think some of these demos sound better than 'The Savage Playground', especially the demo for 'Change the World' :whistle:

Yeah, I've got older demos from Crashdiet and there's no doubt that plenty of them sound a lot better than 'Savage Playground.' I have no doubt any demo from the 'Generation Wild' sessions would sound far superior too.

 

I gotta admit, I've barely played this at all since the start of the year, and I don't miss it at all. Never thought I'd say or think that about Crashdiet, but when you release something that sounds like 'Savage Playground' you have to expect a backlash of sorts. Disgraceful sound quality.

Revisiting this disc. Better than I remembered with still atrocious production.

That was my impression when I revisited it a few years ago. Once the dust had settled I realised the songs were, for the most part, fairly strong. The production was still shit, though.

    • Isn't this just basically Liberty N Justice without the drummer and bassist? In fact, seven of the twelve songs already feature on the last Liberty N Justice album from 2014.
    • that's disappointing as a review I read said that it was grittier. Hey ho 
    • yeah whatever. I really think you are over exaggerating here as it's just not that bad.  But i do listen mostly on Spotify through pretty bass heavy cans so maybe that's it. Good production / bad production all sounds pretty much the same on that lol. Gone are my high end audio days 
    • Let's end this now.
      There is no possible positive outcome for further discussion.
      FWIW,they're both painful for me compared to AFL.
    • haha, We had our honeymoon in Thailand 12 years ago.
      Going back because it was opportunistic and also because all the traveling we do (around 4 o 5 overseas trips annually) are either work related or pretty fast paced taking in the sights etc.

      Since we've been to Phuket before we're hoping it's forced relaxation to a degree. Also,we're staying in the same hotel we honeymooned in, which is kinda cool. Let me know how you found the Philippines.
      Some friends and I celebrate major birthdays with an OS trip which is next year.
      One of them is trying for vegas. I complained that he'd want a week there. He came back with "nah, a long weekend is enough"
      He missed the point. I wouldn't fly to LA for a week, let along a long weekend, so I'm looking for alternates.
    • This one is fantastic. Will check them out.
    • Haha, I was going to put a thread up for that album tomorrow, when I have time to sit down and put some ratings on it. But I agree, sounded great. Probably the best modern rock album I've heard this year. Loved my first few listens of it - some really, really catchy/melodic choruses. There's a lot of bands who do this ADTR type of sound, and some are average but occasionally some do stand out from the pack. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the Sink The Ship album. If I remember right, the first track is all balls to the wall and I was worried it was just going to be another pass. But a a few more clean vocals and big hooks later, and I was totally sold on it. Good stuff. I think this 'Everything' song was up at the top of my faves. 
    • Glad to see another positive comment for this one.  The album hasn't gotten much attention here, but I think it is worth checking out as well.
    • I like these guys  will give the new songs a listen for sure I'd suggest checking out a new album from  a band called Sink the Ship actually , sound a bit like these guys although heavier  
    • Nice. I'll check their previous albums out.
