06 Sep 2014: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers/"Hypnotic Eye" (2014)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2014/07/julio-and-case-of-missing-tetromino-by.html

38 years after their debut, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are back.
Um.
Yeah.

This is definitely, 100% a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers album. They don't do anything new or surprising, which is fine, but it's not very good for someone who can barely write when something is notable.
Fuck.

06 Sep 2014: The Temptations/"Gettin' Ready" (1966)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/having-all-haves-by-haves-of-halves.html

Do you still call it a title track if the title of the album is based on the song, but they're not exactly the same?

The main selling points here are Ain't Too Proud to Beg and Get Ready. Get Ready is my favourite out of all the Motowns.
The rest of the songs are just kind of generic. Disappointing, really.

07 Sep 2014: Built to Spill/"Perfect from Now On" (1997)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/asking-me-about-act-of-asking-me-about.html

The /mu/ essentials list has no brakes. Just because I don't know what it is doesn't mean I shouldn't go for it.

This album is more about the execution than anything else. On the surface, you've heard it before. It's not the most original thing. Maybe it was in 1997, but in this day and age, definitely not. If you're one of those people who create way too many genres with stupid names that don't give any information by name alone, it's this one.

Look past that, though. It's not about what it is, but how it's done. It's probably the best of the many things that are just like it.

07 Sep 2014: Weird Al/"Off the Deep End" (1992)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/10/home-for-weekend-by-weekend-of-weekends.html

The album kicks off with the main draw, Smells Like Nirvana. I'd like Smells Like Teen Spirit better if it were at this tempo. The riff, at least, is way WAY faster.
As far as the parody itself, well, shit, dog. It's perfect, dog. Dog. Dog.

Dog.

Trigger Happy doesn't work for me, because it's a style parody of a style I can't stand. I hate the The Beach Boys-ass harmonies. Very annoying, dog.
I Can't Watch This doesn't work too well. I mean, it's coherent and all, but it's not very funny. Jerry Springer from Running with Scissors did the television thing a lot better.

This album's polka hits its stride at Losing My Religion and its "OH NO". And taking the piss out of Enter Sandman is always fun. Following Miss You Much with I Touch Myself was inspired as shit. Not the best polka, but it definitely has its moments.

This album doesn't have the punch of the others. It's still very good, but the man's done better.

08 Sep 2014: The Jesus and Mary Chain/"Psychocandy" (1985)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/taking-charge-of-by-the.html

/mu/ says it's good, so I'll probably hate it. Let's go.

The noises aren't noises I associate with music. It sounds like I'm in a factory, with all the machinery running and making so much noise that I can barely hear what is being sung to me.
I think there needs to be a line where music ends. This is not music. It's noise + drums + vocals. This is no more music than if I went out to the garage, turned on the saw, and started cutting wood while singing.

http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-jjungles-of-by-jjesters-of.html

Billy Joel is one of those guys whose songs have this comfortable, familiar quality. This makes hearing him say "fucking" on Laura really fucking strange.

Not only does this album lack a hit, it lacks anything memorable at all.

09 Sep 2014: Violent Femmes/"Violent Femmes" (1983)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/beliving-in-beliefs-by-believers.html

Sometimes I wonder if /mu/ really know what they're doing. This isn't one of those times.

"Eight, eight, I forget what eight is for" during the second track's count-up was pretty sweet.
I recognised Add it Up immediately, from THUG2. I'm honestly surprised. And then I recognised Gone Daddy Gone immediately. I guess I should have done this one earlier.

I'm legitimately impressed by this album. My expectations were rock bottom, but they pulled out a 3.5/5.

09 Sep 2014: The Dead Weather/"Horehound" (2009)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/blowing-pre-frontal-cortex-by-guys.html

The debut album from Jack White's fifty-second band. It features Jack White doing what he is best known for; playing the drums!
When this album came out, it got a pack in Rock Band. I listened to the preview clips in the music store, and thought they were awful. Let's see how it really is.

In The White Stripes, Jack White wrote incredibly catchy songs like You're Pretty Good Looking for a Girl and The Air Near My Fingers, monster riffs like in Screwdriver and Blue Orchid, and strange but amazing songs like The Union Forever and Icky Thump. Notice how that was one song from each album.
In The Upholsterers, Jack White fucking KILLED IT. The covers of Pain and I Ain't Superstitious were fucking amazing and full of energy. Apple of My Eye was an amazing original, too.
In The Raconteurs, Jack White did what he did in The White Stripes, with great and memorable tunes like Salute Your Solution, Many Shades of Black, and Steady as She Goes.
On his own, he still knew what he was doing. Songs like Sixteen Saltines and Love Interruption are classic Jack White. Lazaretto didn't happen.

Then we get to The Dead Weather. If I hadn't known Jack White was in the band, I'd call them a pale imitation/rip-off of The White Stripes with none of the talent.
But, uh, what do I call them now?

>Sometimes I wonder if /mu/ really know what they're doing.

well, the classics section is almost entirely derived from Pitchfork's Best of the 60s/70s/80s lists, so it's kind of out of their hands

also, captain beyond is a riff dictionary. i listened to their debut endlessly when i first found it and now i've burned myself out of it. i should revisit it

http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/bleeding-from-soul-by-soulmen.html

Somehow, I've reviewed three of their albums without doing one on the /mu/ essentials list. Oops.

Nico has a shit voice, and the last two tracks are pretentious shit. Other than that, pretty good album.

bananaaaaaaaaaaaa

I find the bass line on the last song fantastic. It's certainly the grooviest song on the album
the second to last song though, definitely pretentious try-hard-core

Also, Sunday Morning and Heroin are two of the better songs of 1967.

ALSO i always get "shiny shiny, shiny boots of leather" stuck in my head and it's frustrating

Heroin was very good, and Sunday Morning was pretty good. I'm not sure I'd go as far as "two of the best songs of 1967", though.
That last track just went on forever and never went anywhere at all. I was sick to death of it long before it ended.

10 Sep 2014: Coldplay/"Songs of Innocence" (2014)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2014/09/julio-and-case-of-missing-viral.html

Just yesterday, Coldplay gave away a free album to everyone who has iTunes. I don't, but I've got YouTube. Fuck the lawmen.

This album is rather pleasant. I can't say a bad thing about it. Coldplay have really outdone themselves, especially since Ghost Stories from a few months ago was absolute garbage. It's amazing how quickly the band could turn around and make something so simple and nice after that. I suppose that's what happens when you aren't been a pretentious piece of shit with his own head up his ass.
This is Coldplay's best album since at least Viva la Vida, which is something I wholeheartedly welcome. Raised by Wolves in particular feels like the song I've wanted Coldplay to do for years.

11 Sep 2014: N.W.A./"Straight Outta Compton" (1988)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/how-does-doing-do-dew-by-mountain-guys.html

I am going to regret trying to penetrate /mu/'s "hipster-hop" section once again.
Why do I do this? It's because I played San Andreas, and enjoyed the game's hip-hop/rap/whatever you call it stations. On one of those stations was a song from this very album. SO FUCK IT
I WILL PENETRATE THIS GENRE IF IT'S THE LAST THING I DO

Helpfully, the first track begins with a short chance of the meaning of their acronym name, Niggaz wit Attitude[sic].
Joking aside, the first track almost roars out of the gate and is pretty much what I want out of the genre.

The second track is called _____ tha Police[sic]. I can only assume that the blank is a stand-in for "love". Who isn't a fan of Sting?
Oh, it's "fuck". I suppose some might be so enamoured with Stewart Copeland that they would wish to engage in carnal relations. This song opens up new insights into African-American culture.

Express Yourself is fucking great. I can't overstate this. If you are turned off by the constant mentions of fucking and hoes and money and bitches in hip-hop, check this shit out, dog.
I Ain't tha 1[sic] drags on far too long. Like, I get it already. Bitches be crazy.

For some reason, the album nosedives after Express Yourself, but pulls it back up for the last track.
It's the best album of the genre I've listened to, even if that doesn't mean much.

11 Sep 2014: Paul McCartney/"Driving Rain" (2001)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/who-is-else-by-committe-for-knowing-of.html

So, what is it with Paul and appearing barefoot on album covers? It's like he's trying to tell us something.

Lonely Road starts the album off with an intensity and passion not seen from Paul since Call Me Back Again, from when he was in Wings.
From a Lover to a Friend is Paul's most emotionally-affecting slow-type songs since Here Today.

"1 2 3 4 5; let's go for a drive" instantly made me smile. Paul's still got it.
Oddly, the song named after his soon-to-be second wife (now ex-wife) is one of the two filler tracks. They were doomed from the start.

Rinse the Raindrops has a REALLY COOL opening riff. Hell, the whole track is pretty fucking cool. It's a ten-minute jam that's interesting enough for even me to like. LISTEN TO IT, YELLOW
I wish that had ended the album, since Freedom is really cheesy, especially coming after Rinse the Raindrops. Unbearably cheesy.
Funny that I randomly chose an album with a reaction song to 9/11 on 9/11.

Paul may have hit a lull in the '80s, and most of the '90s, but his output in this century is pretty fucking great.

Yesterday was the five-year anniversary of my music blog, by the way. I can't believe it, either.

12 Sep 2014: Waylon Jennings/"Dreaming My Dreams" (1975)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/08/dont-bring-me-down-bruce-by-bruces.html

Speaking of genres that exist, here's country.

The album begins with Are You Sure Hank Done it This Way?, which was in GTA V. It was used in Trevor's trailer, if you'll recall. The character trailer songs were all great, but I think this is the best of the three, barely edging out Radio Gaga.
It's followed by filler. "Like a D O G"

The album has a lot of slower songs that sound a lot alike. It's a good album, but not much more.

12 Sep 2014: KISS/"Crazy Nights" (1987)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2014/04/julio-and-case-of-missing-wallet-16-by.html

The title track could have fooled me. By the sound of the song, the nights aren't very crazy at all. The nights sound bad, actually.
The second track reveals that the trend of the album will be Paul Stanley trying to hit notes way higher than he is able. Those notes aren't notes he can hit. He should stop trying.

"I'm gonna bang bang you" OH GOD WHY
WHY
Good Girl Gone Bad is so completely generic. I feel like I've heard it a hundred times from a hundred different bands.

The album ends with its best song, but it's too little, too late. Poor effort, all around.

Hello's version of New York Groove was used in GTA IV, so here we are. Oh boy.
Unfortunately, that's the only notable thing here. Well, there's also a cover of Let's Spend the Night Together that's completely pointless. Better than Bowie's, though.

13 Sep 2014: Black Sabbath/"Forbidden" (1995)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/09/people-with-grudge-against-people-by.html

Black Sabbath's final album with Tony Martin, considered by RYM to be the band's worst album. We'll just see.
The album art is a cute Grim Reaper clad in blue and red, ready to start reaping some souls. I bet it's his first day on the job, and he is very eager. You can see him almost dancing to work, ready to eat the lunch his mummy packed.

The first track has an incredibly cheesy spoken part (spoken by none other than Ice-T), which is really just funny. The deep backing vocals in the choruses aren't very good, though.
Get a Grip, Shaking Off the Chains, and Rusty Angels are unremarkable aside from their riffs. But I've come to expect great riffs from Iommi, so whatever.

Can't Get Close Enough's slowdown section is just generic and strange.

This album is just kind of there. It doesn't really do much of anything interesting. Very disappointing. The bonus track is the best one.

14 Sep 2014: The Rolling Stones/"Goats' Head Soup" (1973)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/09/always-better-when-youre-not-worst-by.html

The only one of their albums from the '70s that I haven't reviewed. It contains Heartbreaker (one of my favourites) and Angie.
Why did I not do this earlier if Heartbreaker is one of my favourites? That fucking album cover. It's hideous.

100 Years Ago is exactly the type of song The Rolling Stones should be doing. It does everything they do well, and nothing they don't. It might even have snuck its way into my top five. Should have been in GH2 instead of Can't You Hear Me Knockin'. Should have been in RB1 instead of Gimme Shelter. Should have been in Band Hero instead of Honky Tonk Woman.

Coming Down Again overstays its welcome a bit. By about three minutes.
As far as the band's slow hits go, Angie's about as good as it gets. Not saying much, though.

Despite appearances (and the last two tracks), this ended up being one of the band's best albums.

14 Sep 2014: Heaven and Hell/"The Devil You Know" (2009)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/09/meaning-of-meanings-by-meaning.html

After 1995's Forbidden, Black Sabbath eventually got back with Ozzy and played Ozzfests and shit. However, in the mid '00s, the band wanted to do some shit with Dio again, so they decided to have two bands. Black Sabbath (with Ozzy) and Heaven and Hell (with Dio). Drummer Bill Ward wasn't part of the band, as a side note. Then in 2009 they released their first and only album before Dio's death. R.I.P.

The first track is called "Atom and Evil". I'm appalled already. Luckily, it's not bad, against all odds.


For an album released over fifteen years after the group's last album (and nearly thirty since their first!), it's really good. Dio's voice stayed with him until the end, and he was able to get out one last great album before it ended. R.I.P.

15 Sep 2014: Morrissey/"Viva Hate" (1988)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/09/a-whole-week-of-waiting-by-more-than.html

Morrissey, for those who vaguely recognise the name, was the guy from The Smiths. Since I've reviewed all four of their albums, here we are. This one's been on my list for a long time.

Well, aside from Morrissey's distinctive voice, it doesn't really sound much like The Smiths. It's the same basic genre, sure, but you know. The sound may be different, but it's still got great songs and such. Morrissey doesn't suffer from the lack of the rest of The Smiths here. He does what he does and makes it work with what he has. You really couldn't ask for a better solo album, honestly.
Unless you're John Lennon and create one of the greatest albums in history right after The Beatles break up, but he's always been an odd one.

The string section of Angel, Angel, We Go Down Together is just excellent. I found myself paying attention to it rather than Morrissey's singing.
The noise in Margaret on the Guillotine that ends the album is perfect, honestly.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Originals and some covers from over fifty years before you were born.
So, yeah. It's a very interesting album, but inessential. If you want something a bit different than everything else, give it a shot.

16 Sep 2014: The J. Geils Band/"Freeze Frame" (1981)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/09/mans-who-poke-by-pokey-mans.html

I tried to review this album back in, like, July. The YouTube-ass playlist said all the songs were in it, but COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS ABOUND
I really wish I'd redownloaded Spotify at that point.
BUT ENOUGH ABOUT THAT IT IS TIME FOR THE FREEZING OF FRAMES

The album opens with the title track, also known as The J. Geils Band's best song. The organ is what really sells it.
The third track is the pretender to that title, Centrefold. It's great and all, but does it have an organ? Well, yes. BUT WHO GIVES A SHIT

The first six tracks of this album are great, but the last three let it down a lot. I'm not sure what happened.

16 Sep 2014: Black Sabbath/"13" (2013)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2013/09/fruits-of-your-labour-by-use-that-as.html

Let's just finish it now.
In 1997, Black Sabbath reformed with Ozzy Osbourne. It took them sixteen years to release a new album, and here it is. Their latest.

Between Ozzy's work with Sabbath and his solo work, his voice is totally different. Even between Never Say Die! and Blizzard of Ozz, he sounds totally different. This will be interesting if nothing else.
As someone who enjoyed Tony Martin Black Sabbath and Ozzy's last two albums, I feel that I am uniquely qualified to rate the shit out of this motherfucker.

God is Dead? steals the riff from Weezer's Undone and slows it down. Nice.

The problem with this album is that nothing's memorable at all. It's fine, sure. It just didn't leave an impression on me in any way.
