"Modern" Music to Check Out

Recommended Posts

The both sound great - Secrets and Life Awaits. I'll check out both. Jeez that Secrets band sounds familiar. I thought it was the product of Namesake disbandoning but I don't believe it is.

Nope , completely unrelated to Namesake, I'd say ignore their first album but their last two are really good , the latest one is the less heavier of the two and probably just about my favourite, but a really good band

I've been a fan of this band for a while and these new songs sound great, they are releasing a new EP in a couple of days and I assume these songs that they have released over the last few months are on it , good stuff

Really good band. They've gradually gotten better with every single release. 'Younger Dreams' from a couple of years back being their best so far. But yeah, I will definitely look forward to a new album. 'Broken Lives' is a good tune.

Yeah, definitely. Like most bands, I think they realise the screaming thing's done and dusted. The songs are clearly better without the screams. Have you heard these guys' first couple of albums? From around 2004/2005 - pretty awful. ;)

Their new album, 'Adornment' isn't perfect but I really enjoy some of what these guys do;

not too bad, didn't realize they were still putting out records.... remembering the times when you couldn't turn on radio without hearing them..

Good song on an otherwise pretty average album. Indeed they have still been going, releasing albums every few years. Thankfully there's a few years between releases, because to be honest they haven't been great for a long time. This album sounded cool at the outset because it finally featured a slightly ballsier sound/production job.

 

Unfortunately, the songs just aren't that great. For the record, if you're curious, this is how I've rated their albums;

 

Dizzy Up The Girl - 1998 - 81%
Let Love In - 2006 - 76%
Gutterflower - 2002 - 75%
Magnetic - 2013 - 75%
Something For The Rest Of Us - 2010 - 73%
Superstar Carwash - 1993 - 72%
A Boy Named Goo - 1995 - 72%
Boxes - 2016 - 69%

The Upside Down is a pretty good song, but I would have enjoyed it more without the screaming. I'm liking this track a bit more simply because they eliminated that aspect.

Two albums that have come out this year that I am enjoying quite a lot

 

Both have their fair share of harsh/screaming vocals which will put most off I assume but when it comes to choruses both deliver big time

    • Loved their first album. Really disappointed by the second.  After 2 or 3 spins I'd say this one's a lot better than the last. 
    • Looking forward to this one   1. I Salute You 2. Arianne 3. Night Drive 4. Chariot Of Fire 5. Bring On The Rain 6. Love Is A Beautiful Lie 7. Ticking Away 8. Battle Ground 9. Candle In The Window 10. Rock In The City Vinyl and CD pre-orders announced soon. 
    • I was only reacting to the statement 'I'd rather have the virus and the economy recover'  be careful what you wish is all. over and out. see ya 
    • Just to explain how good we have it here in Australia. Our total cases since the beginninga re around 10,000 Yesterday, the USA had over 60,000 new cases. that's 6 times our total since it began. What right to we have to complain. Like I said before, the US is fucked with this, and I don't mean that in a nasty way, I mean that in feeling sorry for how rampant it is there. :(
    • Jeez you love the drama, mate.  Yes, the disease will have long-term effects on some - a very small minority of all those who contract it. It may also come out in the fullness of time that Measles, the Flu, Conjunctivitis etc... whatever... that any range of diseases would also have caused long term side-effects to these same people if they'd contracted some other form of disease.  But, for the overwhelming, vast majority of people, these side effects you want to panic the whole world with will likely not exist.  I really don't get your fondness for these wild blanket statements you make.  The other thing I keep thinking about this thing is that for every diagnosed case of COVID-19 there are probably double the amount of people that may have also had it and not even known it, or not had it diagnosed.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the virus is a great thing and sign me up - I want a copy. Just saying your thirst for drama is real. 
    • A great track from the new E19 album. Their fourth. These guys are always sensational value. Very underrated.     
    • Not great (and not bad) but I'll anticipate the rest of the album is better. I think I liked the last one too. 
    • I know nothing about this but sounds like extreme intelligence in motion again. I believe later this week the colour white will be removed from colour charts around the world?  I personally feel strongly that reading, writing and all forms of speech should be banned so as not to cause offence to anyone.
    • Irresistable - Steve Carrell is in this, so an instant watch for me. Was only ok though. Enjoyable enough, wouldn't go out of my way to see it again. Becky - only issue is that her age in this movie is 13, which is too young for what she does. Kevin James plays a white supremasist in this, so it's been removed from Netflix, which is kinda stupid. He is actually really good in it. Survive The Night - Bruce Willis, so I gave it a go. Rent-a-script. Seen it 100 times before.
