just raw energy and great lyrics. The sound is progressive and playful and there's no sign of selling out. Crack the Skye is furious and full of little details but most importantly amazing riffs! This grown on me to be a Classic LP.

WOLFMOTHER is back! More cosmic than ever! The band roster has changed but the most important member, the voice and the artistic leader, Andrew Stockdale is still in charge. Stockdale hasn't changed a thing. Cosmic Egg has the 70's presence in it and the songs are amazing - again flirting into a stoner rock scene with fuzzy and chubby guitar sounds.

As a younger dude my favorite music video was "Californiacation"! MTV used to play it every day and the finish tv-show Jyrki was also a huge supporter for my RHCP craze. In the late 90's and the early 00's there was no day when I didn't hear "Scar Tissue". I burned my CD copy from the Library. I took me 11 years to buy is masterpiece. I'm glad that I did. One of my favorite guitarists is John Frusciante - just listen to the songs like "Parallel Universe" or "Scar Tissue".
Bounty Killer, slave name Rodney Basil Price, is back with fierce gritty reggae vibes and nice dancehall bounce! Fuck the Babylon - Bounty Killer is telling the truth! Bounty Killer is the greatest reggae artist since Peter Tosh and Black Uhuru days. 90's reggae is mad underrated.
After four spins Next Millenium feels like a mixed bag and it's definitely inferior to My Xperience but it's still good, damn good, reggae LP.

Tom Waits' darkest album to date. BONE MACHINE is a moody album with traditional raspy voiced Tom Waits singing his poetry. Music is closer to the Rain Dogs -era than the 70's bar jazz. But BONE MACHINE isn't Avant Garde -It's a blues album with domination percussion and haunting guitar work.

3. "Such a Scream"

This one costed 3 euros in my local supermarket. I had to buy this even tho it's not great or even good record. Scars on Broadway is a mixed bag. Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan (System of a Down) are Scars on Broadway - some sort of psychotic fun project of Malakian. The biggest problem is that the songs doesn't sound finished. Most of the songs are just short rants over loud riffs and drums. This is not even Punk music! On the other hand "Scars on Broadway" is on-par with Serj Tankian's solo "Elect The Dead" - which is surprising because Serj is better songwriter and more interesting singer than Malakian.
This 70's gem is labeled as Art Punk. It's quite good term because Television is a PUNK but not in the traditional way of looking at it. The guitars are not your average "fight riffs". The guitars are technically challenging and proficient. The progressive elements makes Television much more challenging to listen unlike The Ramones or even the early Detroit sound like The Stooges. The lyrics are like poetry. The true meaning of the words are hidden behind the lyrics.
I don't like Finish rap music but there are a few exceptions. Kemmuru is the best in the bunch. Aksim's beats are dope as fuck and Jodarok is a beast in the mic. One of the few "intelligent" rappers in Finland. I use the word "intelligent" very loosely here.
Album features the "Lapinläänin scarface" Stepa, Hannibal from Hannibal & Soppa, politically incorrect lifestyle coach Dxxxa and few others.
Christmas gift from my girlfriend. I had awsome christmas. This is easily of the best records ever made.
Tuomas 's rating:
Title says it all!
It's a great feeling of owning the actual copy of the record. It's not just a file in your computer. It's so satisfying to read the booklet and say "wow" to the illustration. Say NO to torrents and rapidshare god dammit.
Anyway I rate songs from 1-10. I hardly ever use points 1-3 unless it's a T-Pain song.
