Best of 2014 thus far?

Recommended Posts

Dude LRS better than Confess. You mad.

 

I agree. Confess slays that LRS disc.

Dudes, what's the Night By Night album? I assume there's a thread somewhere? Only seen the EP so far, but would love to hear a full disc. I also have HEAT lined up for tomorrow. So, pre-HEAT, my top 10 so far would be (no EPs, of which there are already several good ones);

 

1 - Steel Panther - All You Can Eat
2 - States Of Panic - No World Order
3 - Michael Paynter - Weary Stars
4 - LRS - Down To The Core
5 - Dorydrive - Here's To You
6 - Free Spirit - All The Shades of Darkened Light
7 - Confess - Jail
8 - Within Temptation - Hydra
9 - Switchblade Serenade - Alive At Night
10 - Pretty Wild - Pretty Wild
For my peace of mind, why has States of Panic not been mentioned by anyone else? Do people not like it, or has it not been heard? This is, of course, Peepshow's new band name, and their new CD this year. Not as good as 'Brand new breed,' imo, but not far off it. A really good disc, and very close to Steel Panther in quality.

Gleonard must've been real upset when he saw LRS on that list, 'cause it took him twelve minutes before he realized it was placed higher than Confess.

Roland, I was phoning Geoff to put him straight.

Let me just clarify that I do like LRS but its not as good as confess. It is a pretty decent AOR album though. Didnt want to put folk off tis all.

 

Over and out.

Thanks heaps mate, really appreciate it. Can't wait to hear it.

 

As for LRS and Confess, don't worry yet, guys. Nothing is concrete yet... just my initial thoughts. I really love the Confess disc but when I broke it down track by track I noticed there were a few kind of standard rockers amongst the deadset f*cking gems. I haven't properly dissected LRS yet to be honest, but I really liked the sound of it. Love that dude's voice...

 

Anyway, don't crucify me yet. I'll give a more accurate list later in the year.

Haven't heard that one yet.

 

Is there a physical release out? If so, where can I order?

I love it but there are a few things that lowered the overall score. Everybody's tastes are different.

That's four more than I've heard. :lol:

 

I'm also curious how y'all come up with these oddly specific "number" grades... for example, Babylon A.D. gets a 74%...how is that different from a 73% or a 75%?

They've all adapted Geoffrey's system; they rate each track out of 10, and then take the average. Intros, interludes, and instrumentals don't get graded.

Haha, yeah, I can't take credit for that, dudes. I think it's brilliant and the most accurate way to rate a complete album on the merit of all of it's tracks, but it wasn't me who did it first. It was someone else here that started the trend. I want to say Tim (2) or maybe even Glen? Not sure. Whoever it is, it's done wonders for finally getting some accuracy and order into the music I listen to. Diggit.

 

For the record, my top 10 today:

 

1 - Night By Night - NxN - 89%
2 - Steel Panther - All You Can Eat - 87%
3 - States Of Panic - No World Order - 86%
4 - Michael Paynter - Weary Stars - 86%
5 - H.E.A.T - Tearing Down The Walls - 83%
6 - Free Spirit - All The Shades of Darkened Light - 82%
7 - Dorydrive - Here's To You - 82%
8 - Confess - Jail - 80%
9 - L.R.S - Down To The Core - 80%
10 - Within Temptation - Hydra - 79%

Crappy system :rolleyes: If it doesn't rate, for example, Journey's Kohoutek :whistle:

An update with the Three Lions disc added and an upgrade to the Free Spirit disc's rating. I actually screwed up the math on that one and it really deserved a 82% instead of the 78% I had initially graded it.

Thanks mate, but I'm good. If I really need to listen to anything, I know where to get it. For the most part, I'm still waiting for the ones I'm interested in.
