preview  Iron Maiden preview  Senjutsu (2021) 50/100    Sep 6, 2021
Senjutsu Ok so I will approach this album by listing how I felt about individual songs. I adore Iron Maiden's classic albums, but it has been a while since I heard anything other than middling LPs from them. Which is a huge bummer.

Also sorry for lack of any cohesion beforehand, because I'm writing this to curb my urge to do anything and everything. If you have problems, please fill my med bottle. Thanks.

Album cover - so, Apple Music says "Eddie, in full samurai regalia was immediately appealing". Bollocks. It is just a poorly rendered 3D model of Eddie. As someone else said, this is some boomer wapanese shit.

1. Senjutsu - There are guitar melodies which are payoffs without any setup. From 5 minute mark and onward they are decent, but before that, those solos are real doozy. You cannot j ... See More
preview  Bring Me the Horizon preview  Post Human: Survival Horror (2020)  [EP] 90/100    Nov 17, 2020
Post Human: Survival Horror As soon as I started the album, 'Dear Diary,' blasted my eardrums off. I got the feeling that it is the most similar to 'Crucify Me'. Nothing is better than biting off a beloved album from their past when a band is in creative cul-de-sac, right? However, after listening to the whole album, I realized that this EP is more respectable than I thought at first.

Yes, this is their attempt at return to the source. Breakdowns in multiple songs, heavier sounds (than amo), and lyrics embodying millennial anger. But let's not reduce this EP to that, since there are a few things BMTH pulled off spectacularly (at least from my point of view).

To start off, it achieves the perfect balance between their recent albums and past albums. There are obvious pop music influences such as enthralling chor ... See More
preview  Metallica preview  Hardwired... to Self-Destruct (2016) 60/100    Feb 22, 2017
Hardwired... to Self-Destruct 며칠 전에 린킨파크의 신곡이 유튜브로 공개되었습니다. 곡명은 Heavy인데 반어인지 뭔지, 별로 Heavy하지는 않습니다. 팬들은 A Place for My Head, No More Sorrow를 원하는데 리드 싱글이랍시고 내놓은 게 Chainsmokers 앨범에나 수록될만한 곡이니 웃긴 일입니다. 앨범마다 크게 변화를 추구했던 밴드가 이제는 시장에서 뒤쳐지지 않으려 구태의연한 팝 음악이나 만드는 밴드가 됐다고 생각이 들 정도에요.

아무튼, 어떤 밴드든 새로운 앨범에서는 자기자신을 지양하려는 노력을 하기 마련입니다. 그러다가 한 번은 변곡점에 도달하게 됩니다. 메탈리카의 Load, 메가데스의 Youthanasia같은 앨범을 예로 들 수 있겠네요. 어 ... See More
preview  Dream Theater preview  Octavarium (2005) 90/100    Aug 12, 2013
Octavarium 2번 트랙과 4번 트랙의 팝스러움, 6번 트랙의 뮤즈스러움 탓인지 유독 말 많은 앨범인 8집 'Octavarium'입니다. DT 빠인 제가 듣기에도 이 앨범은 트랙간의 개연성이 좀 약한데요, 그렇다고 이 앨범이 결코 프로그레시브하지 않다는 건 아닙니다. 오히려 시대를 앞선 음악을 보여준 1, 2집이나 유기성이 매우 강한 3, 5, 7집보다도 더욱 더 프로그레시브하다고 볼 여지가 있습니다.

첫 번째로, 이 앨범은 5, 6, 7집과 묶여서 메타 앨범이라고 언급될 때가 있는데요. 5, 6, 7집의 마지막 트랙은 각각 6, 7, 8집의 첫 번째 트랙과 연결됩니다. 'Finally Free'의 백색 소음이 'The Glass Prison'과 이어지고, 'Losing Time/Grand Finale'의 신스 ... See More
preview  The Who preview  Who's Next (1971) 95/100    Dec 16, 2012
Who's Next 사실 더 후가 우리 나라에서 그리 잘 알려진 밴드는 아니다. 동시대의 밴드이자 같은 브리티시 인베이젼의 선두인 비틀즈는 외국 밴드하면 바로 떠올리는 밴드인데. 하지만 잘 안 알려졌다고 해서 결코 만만하게 봐서는 안 될 음반이다.

1번 곡 Baba O' Riley는 내가 여태까지 들었던 신시사이저 소리 중에서 가장 신선한 소리를 내는 곡이다. 산에 가면 볼 수 있는 계곡들과 같은 흐름을 보이는데, 한 번 귀에 박히면 잊혀지지 않을 것이다. 참고로 이 곡은 내가 좋아하는 미드 NCSI 시리즈 OST로 쓰이기도 했다. 시리즈가 뭐였는지는 잘 기억이 안 난다마는, 확실한 건 다른 시리즈들 곡도 더 후 곡이었다는 것이 ... See More

Rising preview  Rainbow preview  Rising (1976) 95/100    Oct 15, 2022
For some classics, you listen to them as a baby metalhead and go 'wow, this is good!' and give high score. After some time, you revisit them and they turn out to be even better than the first time you've heard. This is one of those classics. Besides that I find lyrics to Do You Close Your Eyes to be kind of trite, this album is jaw dropping. Especially Stargazer. I haven't heard a song more epic than this.

Very enjoyable Metalcore (Deathcore? idk I'm not very good at genre distinction).

I thought I had unjustified hatred against Powerwolf. After listening to them, it turned out to be not unjustified. Boring.
White Pony preview  Deftones preview  White Pony (2000) 100/100    Oct 15, 2022
If we discount Back to School as a song shoehorned by the label, this album is fucking perfect. Instrumentation in every song is downright impeccable, and Maynard Keenan in Passenger... c'mon, is this a real life?

Got this album recommended by some hipster. Turns out this album is pretty good. Maybe because I'm a huge hipster too. Third track is my favorite. Every track is so fucking chaotic like my twitter feed that it makes me less suicidal while scrolling.

Halo preview  Amorphis preview  Halo (2022) 90/100    Feb 21, 2022
This sounds like Amorphis; the same Amorphis that they have been. Which is exactly why I'm giving this album Very Good. Their trademark guitar work, which is elegant as an upstream river as always, is still there. Plus, the contrast between harsh and clean vocal never fails to picture a sonically distinct view. I don't know what to expect more.
