Some artists thrive off of sounding heavy and aggressive, some off of evoking high energy, some from being emotionally appealing, some by creating unique in-depth atmospheres. And then there are artists who thrive off of just being as weird and abnormal as possible. The members of Ween are that last type of artist.
Last week I began discussing my opinions on CrazyEightyEight’s 2018 record Burning Alive. This week I’m excited to say we’ll be picking up right where we left off to finish out the album, and boy am I excited.
I may have listened to a decent amount of music for someone my age, or maybe I haven’t, I can’t be too sure. But what I am certain is that I have not seen nearly as many movies as someone my age probably would have, and this album was really telling of that.
We’ve bounced around between genres a lot here on this blog, and I must say I have no intention of stopping that anytime soon. This week’s album, Lamb of God’s 2004 release Ashes of the Wake ranges from groove and thrash to straight up death metal. And let me preface this review by saying: I’m no metal head.
To me, Indie music has always seemed like Rock but with lower production, a generally chiller vibe, and the freedom for the artist to do whatever they’d like, be it for better or for worse. So where does album fall in that?
This week we’re back towards a direction of music I’m more familiar with, some good old fashioned rock’n’roll. Well, kind of.
As previously discussed, my preferences in music tend to lead towards the rock genre. So why on earth is it that I’m finding myself reviewing another electronic album?
Picking up where we left off last week, today I’ll be finishing my review of Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories and giving it a final rating.
Today we’ll talk about who I am, why am doing this, and far more importantly, what I’ve gathered from Daft Punk’s 2013 album Random Access Memories.
