Does anyone own Guardian - Bottle rocket on CD? Whether or not you feel this album blows or not, does anyone else have any troubles with it skipping?? Ive now bought this cd for the 3rd time, and each cd has skipped ALOT on the opening tracks. The CD is in perfect condition though.

I used to own it...before I got tired of how majorly it sucked and gave it away to some poor unsuspecting soul who is probably still cursing me to this day for foisting such a musical abomination upon his ears. But no, when I did have the misfortune of owning it and attempting to listen to it, it never skipped. Still can't believe you actually own that CD though. Aren't you the bloke that had never heard Skid Row or Kix? Jeez, man, how can you have "Bottle Rocket" in your collection but not Kix or the Skidsters? :(

More to the point, this is the third time he's owned it?! Matty-Boo, do you like people kicking you in the balls repeatedly? Seriously, you ever heard that 'twice the fool' saying. Have you heard the CD? Total piece of shit.

 

Like Mark, I owned it too and it played fine (if you call that "fine") but it was on my sale/trade list pretty much as I was spinning it. Took me forever to get rid of it too as it seems it's reputation preceeds it.

 

Seriously Matty-Boo, my advice: Give up on it. It's not worth it.

I like the Bottle Rocket album. BUZZ is the one I don't like but it does have about 3 really good songs on it.

Exact opposite for me. I like "Buzz" but thought "Bottle Rocket" blew donkey balls.

If you ask me they're both as shit as each other. Got them both at the same time and both went onto my trade list the moment I heard them... and both took forever to finally get rid of. Seriously, I think I listed them on ebay about 5 times. When it comes to Guardian, I'll stick with the first two only please (Yep, I'm the guy who thinks 'Miracle Mile', bar that last great ballad, is crap too).

I had BOTTLE ROCKET very briefly in the late 90s... I think it set a record for the shortest time in my CD player before I sold it back to the used CD store... don't remember it skipping but to be honest if it did skip it would only have been an improvement...

 

If you've owned 3 copies of that CD you must be a glutton for punishment, Matt. :lol: Either that or you've bought the same copy 3 times.

Bottle Rocket is a strong record of Pop Rock ala COLLECTIVE SOUL or GOO GOO DOLLS...it's easily as good as anything those two bands have done...

Do we call that a post of a dagger through the center of my face? Collective Soul are terrible and I agree that 'Bottle Rocket' is about on par with that shit, but Goo Goo Dolls???

 

Dood, 'Dizzy up the girl' is pop rock perfection 'Gutterflower', 'Let love in', 'A boy named Goo' and 'Superstar Carwash' all completely and wholly crucify it too. The only Goo Goo Dolls albums anywhere near as awful as 'Bottle rocket' are those Metal Blade punk discs early on.

    • Unfortunately I have to say that this one and I took a little drive down Disappointment Avenue. Oh lol, good one. Fuckwit.  That aside, it's all solid but I kept hoping the next song would be the killer cut I was after, and then the album was over and it hadn't hit my ears. The best song, in my opinion, is the opener. That is a pretty good, hard hitting tune, but sadly they never surpass it, in my opinion. Okay album, but hopefully next time they fulfil their potential...? Maybe. 
    • 1    .    Awakening 2    .    Black Hole 3    .    Through the Night 4    .    Suffocating 5    .    Learn to Be Alone 6    .    Myself 7    .    Calling You 8    .    Vicious Cycle 9    .    Help Me Out! 10    .    Remedy 11    .    Eclipse 12    .    Summertown Post-hardcore outfit OUR MIRAGE have released their highly anticipated new album Eclipse and close their trilogy with the last chapter, out now worldwide via Arising Empire. Hailing out of Marl, Germany, this four piece post-hardcore group really hits you deep in your emotions. From the ambient music to the emotional lyrics that really strike a nerve, OUR MIRAGE offers a vast variety of elements that many of us can relate to. This young group is becoming known for the emotion that they pour into their music and their latest release Unseen Relations takes that line even deeper. The group largely focuses on the problems that our youth deal with internally, but their music doesn’t just speak to them, it is very intuitive of the problems and struggles that we all deal with on a common basis. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nice album from these guys. Whole bunch of pretty sweet cuts on this one. This is my favourite of the album-   Some other cuts from the album-                
    • Pretty solid for what it is, but sadly, no killer track for me. The title track and 'King Of The Dead' and 'Taste Your Tongue' are my favourites, but none of this will be on my 2022 playlist.  
    • All in all it's a pretty decent album. First two songs and the tasty 'Say Farewell' are my picks of the lot, but everything on here's pretty solid. Biggest critique would probably be that it's all pretty similar and one-dimensional. But it's a pretty solid dimension.  
    • I guess this one's okay in places. Some cool metallic riffs here and there but overall not overly exciting. Solid for what it is, and I imagine Sword die-hards will probably dig it. 
    • Yeah, I was reading your list thinking that I was happy for you that you were that invested in your favourite albums this year. The albums in my list are far better than those, lol but I'm not sure I'm quite as passionate about them as you are about your top 10. Not sure, I say, as I will wait until the end of the year to see how my penned thoughts end up.  Anyway, I'm going to check out this VHS Collection thing tomorrow to see what that's all about. Otherwise, of your list, that Iron Allies one must be the curveball of the year, surely. Cannot for the life of me personally see what you see in that, but to each one's own, and glad you dig. 
    • Well I love my top 10 and it was basically impossible separating them. All killer albums imo. 
    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment-    
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums.
