Thanks Aaron. But the skew is not only this month, see Alex count below of the genres reviewed this January (And I will add that the Doom you guys review is often a Doom with extremely aggro vocals). If nothing interesting happens in other genres so be it! It still feels that the team preference in the past months skews the reviews toward really violent genres to the detriment of others… Nope I don’t have anything to mention, I’m an afficionado of your column and discover most of my metal here, hence my comment and disappointment over the last few months as BM does not do it for me! And, just can’t believe there’s nothing out there in the other genres that you guys missed because of your own preferences…

mm since the showrunner changed, this section is almost 95% black metal and grindcore… I know there is a lot of creativity in those genres at the moment, at the same time I feel that we’re missing a lot of info on less aggressive material that we used to get in the past here. More diversity would be great!

Well honestly maybe pledgemusic is to blame.. really unsure of a company which is only based on making money from selling 100 dollars vinyls for an autograph

Yep I would call it a monster but not for the same reason, or how to ruin a legacy!

December 8, 2014 on Win Stereogum’s 10 Best Albums Of 2014 On Vinyl Courtesy Of Insound

While I really like stereogum because they don’t diss bands like weezer or the smashing because its the norm now, I think this review is overstated. Such contempt for a magical album like Adore is beyond comprehension for me, but so be it, its acknowledge in the review. While I think the album is very good and I was not expecting more from Corgan at this point, I would not say it is better than Oceania, but maybe? On the other hand it fails in comparison to Machina! Machina II is out of comparisons because it not close to being a finished product but come on, Machina I is far superior than this! Once again I like this album and surely Machina I has some flaws but I don’t see a single track here as powerful or magical as lets say Stand inside your love or Age of Innocence just to name a few!

Its about Itunes or not itunes its about how this big corporate bands are pretending they are finding new ways to distribute music while they are mostly using that as a stand to sell more. I will be enclined to say Yorke intentions are less money-oriented than U2 but it remains that to me there is nothing new here, how distributing through torrent will make things different than say, distributing through bandcamp?

October 17, 2014 on The Next Radiohead Album May Get An Unconventional Release, Too

6$ for 8 songs = merely the price you would have paid on a itunes release, and selling regular copies on the side, I dont see any advance here,… even In Rainbows release was nothing new, the Smashing Pupmkins gave a free album on the net way before, to me its just disguised advertisement not really better than forcing your album into people’s lifes like U2.

Thanks for this strong counter-argument on my misplacing another C in the name. Thanks also for cut-pasting the Wikipedia page proving that you don’t know what you are talking about. And yes I do know the matter very well, enough at least to know that many progress have been made regarding the use of animals in research and progress are going to keep on happening. Unfortunately these progress wont be hindered by stupid celebrity comments who don’t know what they are talking about. We still need animals to progress our understanding of the world, that’s sad but that’s fact. Computational models, stem cells, bioinformatics are aready helping us to decrease that need and someday we will hopefully do without animals. Meanwhile it would be great If activists spent their useful time for better aims than striking with monkey experiment pictures from the 70’s… like pressuring countries who don’t have mandatory animal ethical commitees.. like, for example, France.
Make sure you correct my grammar.
