Is it just me or are people a little less excited to do end of year lists this year?

 

I can't even remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, much less what discs came out in 2008 or whatever... my brain, it's... not good. :(

Let me guess Guns N Roses CD will be #1?

Also Dirty Looks CFR and Extreme will be up there as well plus some other modern rock bands?

    • Shitbomb - Shit in the Sky 😒   I found “Unbreakable” to at least be listenable; “Steel Hearts”… not so much. Unless a 3rd single turns out to be excellent, this will be a big skip. 
    • I thoroughly enjoyed 2017’s “Defying Gravity “, and was hoping for more of the same. “Good Luck Trying” is, unfortunately, not it. Sure hope there’s a lot better tracks to come…
    • Never been into BABYMETAL but am a huge Electric Callboy fan. Been listening to this song over and over again in the last four hours or so. Fucking love it. The Schillo Brothers have created another brilliant video. A lot of bands could learn a lot from them in the video production department.
    • These riffs sound like something from a bad nu-metal album released in the early 2000s. Slow, chuggy, terrible guitar tone and pointless pinch harmonies. The vocals are obviously unintelligible but instrumentally it isn't any good either. Who's going to buy this shit?
    • Zombie Attack - Tankard 
    • Forget Me Not - Bad English
    • 1/10...that is bad. 
    • New single 'Perfume Of The Timeless'. Press release: New Nightwish album Yesterwynde out September 20th 2024! Order the jewel case CD with 28-page booklet now! A magic dwells in every beginning, full of anticipation for what lies ahead, making time briefly stand still. This moment seems almost infinite, filled with the limitless possibilities for the future and the start of a new era. And now, this moment has dawned for NIGHTWISH… The Symphonic metal legend’s new album will see the light of the day on September 20th, 2024. It marks the band’s tenth studio album, following on from the release of Human. :II: Nature. in 2020. Tuomas Holopainen stated about the new album: "Yesterwynde is a fantastical voyage through time, memory, and the better angels of human nature. Three years in the making, we`re thrilled beyond words to soon share our tenth album with the world!" Tracklist: 1. Yesterwynde 2. An Ocean Of Strange Islands 3. The Antikythera Mechanism 4. The Day Of... 5. Perfume Of The Timeless 6. Sway 7. The Children Of 'Ata 8. Something Whispered Follow Me 9. Spider Silk 10. Hiraeth 11. The Weave 12. Lanternlight      
    • Back for the Attack-Dokken
