09 May 2018: The Golden Earring/"Eight Miles High" (1969)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/the-plane-is-about-to-crash.html

the final track accounts for half of the album's length and it just drags on and on and fucking on

BONUS REVIEW: Whitesnake/"1987 Versions" (1987)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2008/05/1987-versions-by-whitesnake.html

this is a japan-only EP featuring outtakes from the 1987 album

it includes looking for love and you're gonna break my heart again, which were the two best songs on 1987 except they weren't on 1987 in north america because fuck north america right?

there's a rerecorded version of standing in the shadow, from slide it in
ho god i am glad that this didn't make the album
it's basically what the original standing in the shadow would have been if it were an overproduced mess
there is nothing about it that makes it worth listening to

there's a rerecording of one of slide it in's bonus tracks, need your love so bad, which is a cover of a blues song by some guy named mertis john jr.
now, i'd never heard the slide it in version of this one, so i listened to both
there's not much difference; both are filler tracks but i'd give the edge to slide it in's version for sounding less over-polished

finally, we're at the first track on the album (i did the review out of order to make it flow better)
this ep begins with here i go again, but not the version from the 1987 album or the version from saints an' sinners
it begins with the weird-ass radio mix
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lFBkzCm7-U
i've heard it on the radio before (not every time i've heard here i go again on the radio though)
but fuck dude it's still weird as fuck
i don't dislike it
it's kind of neat
SUPER-'80s like especially that keyboard but since when has that ever bothered me?
the only thing i don't like is that he still says "drifter" instead of "hobo"







track listing so you're not confused by the MCBB review:
01: Here I Go Again (radio version)
02: Standing in the Shadow '87
03: Looking for Love
04: You're Gonna Break My Heart Again
05: Need Your Love so Bad '87

11 May 2018: Thunder and Roses/"King of the Black Sunrise" (1969)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/nirvana-did-it-better.html

this is the band's only album
nirvana would later cover white lace and strange and do it so much better

there's a cover of hendrix's red house here as well that is
just okay

12 May 2018: Arctic Monkeys/"Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino" (2018)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/dumb-name.html

their newest album
i hope to god it's better than AM but i'm not holding my breath

none of the songs in the first half are good
the problem is that arctic monkeys guy's voice doesn't work for this sort of music
maybe if thom yorke was singing, it would be okay
this guy just sounds annoying

the second half of the album is better but still not good

13 May 2018: Slowdive/"Slowdive" (2017)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/slow-down-sweet-talkin-woman.html

our boy taylor aka peewee aka teal aka led zeppelin reference (aka i don't remember what his username is on this particular forum right now) published a list of the best albums of 2017 on rym the other day and i just noticed it in my notifications
so i am going to listen to #1 and probably hate it

the first track is a fancy elevator ride then the vocals come in and are uh okay

against all odds, i actually liked this
it's a bit uneven but i had a good time

Wow, wasn't expecting that. Nice Basketball

Also, Tranquility Base Hotel has grown on me a bit after a few listens. Alex's voice does sound strangely off, but there's a lot of neat wordplay and subtle hooks that reveal themselves with each listen. Plus, the album is sonically interesting enough for me to at least put it above AM and Suck It and See T B H. ?

i always want to like what other people here like and i am happy when it works out
doesn't make me hesitate any less the next time though

14 May 2018: Fuse/"Fuse" (1969)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/blunder-of-century.html

this band's only album
half of the band would go on to become cheap trick

they really should have brought some of these songs back once they had a better singer

15 May 2018: Humble Pie/"Eat It" (1973)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/ingest-it.html

get down to it was, of course, in san andreas
i know that sounds like something i'd hop on right away but this is a double album so

the overblown pieces with the choir of women NEED to fuck off
i'm listening to a rock album not going to fucking church

a prime example of why double albums should be outlawed
it would have been a fine single album

get down to it is pretty much the only song worth anything on this album

http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/jerry.html

songs like atlantic city just didn't need to exist
the band tried harder when performing their songs than they did when writing them, which sometimes works out, but didn't this time

21 May 2018: Emerson, Lake, and Palmer/"Brain Salad Surgery" (1973)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/witty-retordt.html

more like regressive rock am i right

i like the organ on karn evil 9 a lot
the second part of the first impression is pretty great; it has like vocals and a cool guitar part and it's actually a good song
i cannot overstate how much i liked the track entitled "Karn Evil 9 1st Impression Pt. 2"

karn evil 9 2nd impression reminds me of the monopoly game for PC
needless to say, i enjoyed the first three minutes of it as i would a good game of classic-style monopoly
(but only if i get to be the thimble)
really, karn evil 9 2nd impression should have been split into two tracks like the first impression was; the cool piano part and the dumb silence part
after the silence, there's more piano, but by then it's too late and i'm already mad about the minute of silence
so basically, to sum it up: karn evil 9 2nd impression is everything that is wrong with progressive rock
(to be honest, the silence isn't so bad in retrospect, but i already wrote all that so)

karn evil 9 3rd impression has a neat horn section
never thought i'd be complimenting a horn section but there you go
the very end of the track is
weird



all of the reviews on RYM complain about how overwrought and pretentious this album is so i was expecting to hate it
i
didn't
i actually really liked most of it
someone please check and make sure i haven't been replaced by an imposter
(the album name sounds more like a buckethead album than an elp album)

10/10 Yay!

Brain Salad Surgery has grown on me. I used to really dislike the album with just how pointless the whole Karn Evil 9 suite is and how hecking long it takes to get to WELCOME BACK MY FRIENDS. Now I realize Jerusalem and Still You Turn Me On are among the best prog rock songs in existence. karn evil 9 is still too long tho

22 May 2018: Tim Buckley/"Happy Sad" (1969)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/but-mostly-angry.html

i said i'd do one this month and i wasn't lying
i was just procrastinating

so what i noticed about this one right off is the presence of actual songs and not just deranged wailing
songs like buzzin' fly are legitimately good to the point where i could see myself listening to it again rather than just saying "what the fuck" and never coming back

24 May 2018: Quiet Riot/"Alive and Well" (1999)
http://musiccouldbebetter.blogspot.com/2018/05/debatable.html

the title track needs a louder guitar or something
it sounds really empty
nice noodling solo though

the ritual features kevin dubrow trying to sound dark and intimidating
it doesn't work

there's a subpar cover of highway to hell here
i know the line is "supposed" to be "season ticket on a one-way ride", but this version is the first time i ever actually heard that
when bon scott sings it, it sounds like "she's a nigger on a one-way ride" and no one can convince me otherwise
OH JESUS WHAT IS THAT FUCKING SLOW SECTION
HOW DO YOU FUCK UP HIGHWAY TO HELL SO BAD

there are also a bunch of rerecorded versions of '80s quiet riot songs that i didn't bother listening to
i am not good at this
