Interesting. I felt like I was listening to an apology letter of releasing 14 years of shit.
Adore? Pffft Oh come on. Everyone has been anticipating the long awaited remastered version of Corgan’s magnum opus. Zwan.
The man is pushing 60 and doesnt look a day over 25. Now thats weird.
oh come on. Its cute that Avicii is trying to be like Fatboy Slim of the 90s.
Appreciate it Dave. I just sent you a message on FB.
Ive been waiting over a decade for ska’s long awaited return. The genre was just so fun, carefree, and flashy. While ska bands are still doing their thing, the music isn’t as in your face as it was in the 80s and 90s. Seems that Reel Big Fish and the Aquabats are the only mainstream ska bands keeping the genre alive.
And that horrid alternative rock in the 00s was known as Nu Metal. After the wave of alternative rock fizzled out in the late 90s, bands like Limp Bizkit, Staind, Linkin Park, Papa Roach and Disturb started to dominate radio. The only reason alternative rock got edgier was to compete with the boybands and teeniebopper artists of the time. In hindsight, there wasnt much to choose from since mainstream music really tanked in that era. Think about it. It was either cookie-cutter pop acts or generic sounding rock bands so you had 2 types of poisons to pick. Speaking of Linkin Park, Its strangely coincidental that they initially toured with STP in early 00s and now STP is using the lead douche from that band.
Music today is strange and bewildering. Theres some good acts out there, but yet the heavy hitters of the 90s such as Beck, Damon Albarn, Presidents of the USA, Eels, Pixies, and 311 have released some solid albums this year. Just a shame the NEW STP is utter shit. Either change the name of the band, boot Chester or break up.
Guy’s style pinpoints 1997. The style matches the mood and the type of music that was popular at that year. Ska, surf rock revival, neo-swing. It was a carefree time. Im sure Guy listens to a lot of 311, Lit, Smash Mouth, and Reel Big Fish.
so is this a Billy Corgan solo album or Smashing Pumpkins?
