Uhhh weeee, i’ll make this short and super sweet, Weezer are Weezer and i must say they have changed, there’s something about clean and nice rock that just brings a smile to my face, sure with time one would suspect they would get old, but their pop”ed” hard rock seems to still thrive, the last album was a bit of a strange affair as well as a 4 years (10 months in Meshuggah time) of wait for a new album seems a bit of a stretch, so here it is, let’s see if it will make me into a believer.
Ohhh yeah baby those horses need some education, well i have one of those love/hate relationships with Rob Zombie, well more hate than love, but that’s another story, there’s a new album, and in case you don’t know, Rob Zombie, plays a kind of weird “sampled ridden” glam rock, it sounds like redneck music to me, how i do miss White Zombie, well that’s a even longer story.
One thing about nin is that Mr Trent Reznor, sure take it’s time to make an album, when a new album pops up i tend to think… nin? i actually don’t remember your last album, not that i’m anal about how long it takes to make a decent album, but i tend to associate time with quality, and this is certainly true with nin, the albums are always of top quality, the music is always crisp, the production superb, well we have a new album, let’s see if indeed it has teeth.
A 2001 album? Based on a HBO series? Screw it, Jack Black is fucking hilarious, and not a bad musician to boot, well maybe I’ll give a bigger insight, Tenacious D is composed of Jack Black and Kyle Gass, both are fucking funny and as such i guess they got the opportunity to make a HBO Show, first some shorts and then 6 full episodes, that showed the Tenacious D tribulations to get famous, even thought it was fucking hilarious, each show had a open-mike kind of thing were they would play a couple of songs, most of those became this album, the funny (at least for me) thing is that not only the comedy was priceless, the music was funky and funny as well.
A pleasure as always, yeah most of the time the shifting repetition under the transcendental drumming, from Che, does tend to give the illusion of self indulgence, however it …. got you people fooled for a moment there, hehhe, anyways i thought they were “dead” seems i was wrong and thank whatever god you pray to, Don Caballero plays math rock, what is math rock? you might say, well wikipedia says it better than i could. were math rocks is “characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures, stop/start dynamics and angular, dissonant riffs.” and i believe Don Caballero were (and as it seems continue to be) in the foremost of this genre.
Kaiser Chiefs, well well well, play a very sparkly british pop/punk/rock with some help from synthesizers, so this is happy happy music for the happy happy people, how do i know them? were else, “Predict A Riot” was a constant on radio, and i’m not that a big listener but did get it a couple of times, these acts seem to be rolling like crazy, Franz Ferdinand does come to mind, but i have that tingly feel between my legs that this two aren’t all the bunch, so i drink a cool orange juice to get that happy happy feeling, before i listen to this album, am i going to see any riots?
The voice and guitar of Pink Floyd is back. And what a return!
David Gilmour didnt release a solo work since 1984 and as part of Pink Floyd since 1994. After almost fifteen years we, once again, can have the pleasure of listening to Gilmour’s voice and guitar work â€“ I personally love his guitar solos, always have, always will.
