    anybody like britneys new album?

    I havent listened to the whole of Brit Brit's album, but all the singles are catchy enough. I actually like the first single "Gimme more". Sure its shallow, gimmicky and everything pop culture is about. It was meant to be be trashy dance music and it succeeded. Congrats. If brit brit doesnt...

    Nine Inch Nails new album out

    I thought this is such a great idea, really neat packaging and being able to download the FLAC rip of the album when you order a $10 copy is excellent, now I dont have to wait for it to ship before I can listen to it. I hope more bands can take cues from them, this could potentially stop...

    Grunge Music Revisited

    Darkangel: 1991 is more shoegazy and borrows quite obviously from MBV's guitar feedback and noise, its not totally shoegaze nor grunge but somewhere in between. It is a collection of their earlier unreleased works. No Return in The End is their last and latest album. I don't think it...

    Grunge Music Revisited

    I don't know if they are considered to be under the grunge tree, but Silversun Pickups is great, sounds like Smashing Pumpkins, which isn't a bad thing.

    Time is running out, broken Grado 325 (not i) worth what?

    they look like the rarer pre-silver-aluminiun SR325 that I was looking for a while back, at the price of thefinal bid, I wouldn't mind paying for it as long as the drivers are working, then getting parts from cheaper grado to fix it.

    I can't believe no one has started a Live Earth Concert thread.

    -Some performers could have used (or abused) the event as a platform for promoting their products (i.e. their albums) but I do think some performers may have been doing it because they actually care for the cause. Either way, it is unfair to judge every artist to be there for free publicity...

    Transformers movie thread

    On a side note, i think the Movie toys are pretty well made. I owned a Deluxe class Barricade and have played with a Ironhide. Both hav e clever touches that even include details like the internal furnishing of the car. The movie's starscream toy is pretty ugly tho

    Kelly Clarkson - My December

    I thought I should mention this album around here since otherwise it will be overlooked as another pop album. This is an extremely fine album, without going into too much details, yes there are still some sugary pop moments (e.g. "one minute") but most of the songs have less sugar coating...

    Overhyped and should be avoided!

    that shows how diverse we are (and how snobbish we can be about our own musical taste) and when people don't like what we like, we conclude that their taste isn't mature enough to appreciate what we like.

    Overhyped and should be avoided!

    I think the phrase "top <insert number> of the past <insert period>" is a overly used cliche to tell people that I really really like what I am hearing. Pick ten different who listens to different genres and have different taste in music and the list of "top tens" will be very different.

    Dream Theater- Systematic Chaos

    I think DT is one of those bands which have diverse opinions. For example, there are many people who love SFAM but I thought its contrived and never really got into it, many people love Awake, I never thought it was mind blowing. Then there's Octavarium, so many people thing its bad because...
