my favorite song was cactus in a weird way a lot of the songs reminded me of mother mother which i liked a lot when i was in high school i wanna play this when im driving with the windows down!
this is the kind of music i like listening to when im doing stuff around the house like dishes or folding clothes, whistling along, twirling for no reason and feel like im in a movie. the songs blended in with each other for me and not all of them were the most memorable on their own, but for me it was more the entire experience than each song to its own!
everything felt like it belonged in a movie to me, dont know if for that reason or not, but it resonated with me less on a personal level. i enjoyed the clean sounds and how perfectly complete everything sounded, but it wasnt exactly music my soul would think about tomorrow
one time i was with my dad driving somewhere and i was playing my music and he complained that todays music 'wasnt even music' like dads do. so i asked him what he wanted to listen to, and he said REAL MUSIC, like deep purple. so i put the mix on spotify, and the first song of course was smoke on the water, and my dad was jamming, rolled the windows down, havin a blast, saying THIS IS MUSIC not what you kids listen to today, and im like okay sure its not bad, second song that came up he didnt know but was still having a good time, ish, nodding his head. by the third song he told me i could put my music back on. listening to this kind of felt like that. im sure if id have seen it live i wouldnt stop talking about it to anyone who would listen, because its very energetic (and by now im desperate for a concert of ANY kind) but to conclude this listen ill just say im glad the last song, which was over 19 minutes, was somehow blocked in my region.
i wouldnt have guessed it came out when it did. does that mean it was ahead of its time? energetic and raw and in my opinion fun.
music i would lie about liking to seem edgier as a teen
i appreciate it when it sounds like artists enjoy creating and take joy in putting something together rather than enforcing an inspiring or controversial narrative on a melody in a clunky and unnatural way, but i dont feel like im in on this, in a 'you had to be there' improv evening way. i dont really see myself coming back to this. wasnt a terrible listen while i was drawing.
wasnt what i expected at all i heard the name a few times in the past and i expected it to be angrier? it reminds me of when i worked in that toy store and the boss would only play this one bruce springsteen cd on repeat and at some point it started sounding uncanny. theres nothing really wrong with it, just not for me
i hope one day i can express my emotions in a level that comes close to this and encapsulate a moment in my life in a way thats truly eternal.
immediately replayed for a second time and then a third.
i think this unlocked a secret memory from my grandfather. personally i liked hearing the audience, sets a mood i really enjoyed.
immersive, energetic, moody and i like this version of hurt much better. for some unknown reason the johnny cash version used to play every friday evening on the leading radio station in israel, and i always felt like it was so obnoxiously pretentious. in this album, it owns it unapologetically and i could believe it for once. :)
every once in a while the lyrics resonated with something in me. it didnt happen consistently, but when it did, it gave me this special feeling music can give you where you feel understood and included by something bigger than your own silly little everyday life.
