I really like their debut album. When CIG was still here we would air our exalting opinions on it.
Oh, I posted this album on the wrong thread.
I have a friend who is super into Arctic Monkeys. I have no clue why. Utterly flat, two-dimensional music imo.
That's how most black metal is so you should like it tbh
Wrong thread bruh
Oooops, I'm an idiot! Fixed, thanks.
tfw when bands like Overkill do doom metal more justice
I'd also be super into your posts, but I'm not.
Downrated from a 4 to a 2.5 on RYM in one listen. Still some good ideas here but many are obnoxious, and worse yet, just as many are plain boring.
I still like The Real Thing though.
Mike Patton was way ahead of the times with “autism awareness”...try Mr. Bungle, it’s no less obnoxious but more deliberate
Alex Jones Prison Planet was kinda funny- got old pretty quick...
I think Album of the Year is the best album from that band. I was super into Angel Dust for years but Ashes to Ashes destroys anything on that album
I don't think Faith No More ever got as bad as Thrash Queen tbh
Terrible band. I haven't even checked out Fantomas or any of his other projects because of how bad those albums were.
I think I'll always love Carousel even though it's such an Oingo Boingo knock-off, and there's a few other songs on the first album that are pretty good too, but yeah overall Patton is one of the most overrated guys in rock/metal.
Overrated?...lol, I’ve never heard someone call someone so underwhelming “overrated”...
Isnt that the point of calling something out as overrated? Patton has a rather large cult following that proclaims him to be some kind of music god (as is the norm for cult followers), and none of his stuff really leaves a lasting impact. Ive always considered his music as generically eccentric, and the strange stuff is usually just weird for the sake of being weird and doesnt come across as genuine to me. It is like he thinks mocking circus music is somehow deep, and when he doesnt do that he just plays generic alternative rock in the vein of background music to bang your high school girlfriend to. The man has a good voice, but his artistic vision is shallow and usually ostentatiously schizophrenic. King for a Day and Disco Volante are probably his high points, and they are 6-7 out of 10 albums at best.
Really don't get Vegard's infatuation with this one.
I totally agree, I’ve just never met one of these “cult followers” lol...I watched a VH1 interview where he was talking about his autism, so the weird/abstract stuff always made sense to me...
This crap. I don't get why so many black metallers love it. It sounds like some bedroom hipster metal at best.
