PostSubject: Reviews Supplemental   Tue Nov 22, 2011 12:22 am

Miscellaneous information about the albums I've reviewed this month that doesn't fit into the format I've boxed myself into is placed here for posterity because I'm bored. Maybe I'll do more in-depth shit on past reviews, but I doubt it.*
*Yes I will when I get bored tomorrow
The best song is always the first listed under "highlights", minus Mellon Collie, since I barely remember it.

01 Nov 2011: American/Canadian "Rubber Soul" by The Beatles
The American version of this album is odd. Basically, it's most of the songs from British Help! that weren't on American Help! (meaning the entirity of side two), since American Help! had the George Martin orchestral pieces ala Yellow Submarine and American A Hard Day's Night.
However, since all American albums had twelve songs rather than Britain's fourteen, a lot of songs got the axe. Drive My Car is absent, and the album opens instead with I've Just Seen a Face, which goes into Norwegian Wood.
Despite its glaring omissions (which were on next month's first album, Yesterday and Today), it still has a lot of Rubber Soul and Help!'s best tracks.
Highlights: I've Just Seen a Face, Norwegian Wood, Think for Yourself, Michelle, I'm Looking Through You, Run for Your Life
Lowlights: um... The Word?
In relation to other albums:
Well, since the US albums were mostly abortions, I'd say it's the best of them. British Rubber Soul is better, but the only song from it I'm really missing is Drive My Car.


02 Nov 2011: "Riot!" by Paramore
I generally don't like chick singers. Although Hayley sounds exactly the same on nearly every song, it's all right; that's punk rock. And shit.
I actually really liked this album. I don't know why. I'm not ashamed. I also really like their cover of Foo Fighters' My Hero.
Highlights: Fences, Misery Business, My Hero
Lowlights: Sunday Bloody Sunday, I guess.
In relation to other albums:
Will review something else by them next month. Fair warning.


03 Nov 2011: "Insomniac" by Green Day
Green Day are my latest assrape. This album is, well, punk rock. It's Green Day, what can I say?
It is, however, loaded with "average" to "good" songs, with the odd gem thrown in.
Highlights: Brain Stew/Jaded, Geek Stink Breath, Bab's Uvula Who?, Walking Contradiction
Lowlights: 86, Panic Song
In relation to other albums:
Not as good as Dookie, Warning, American Idiot or 21st Century Breakdown.


04 Nov 2011: "T.Rex" by T.Rex
I've been looking for this for ages, and finally decided to say "fuck it" and pirate it. The Rarn reprise in my version is replaced by Ride a White Swan and Summertime Blues. Fair trade, I'd say.
No songs on it are bad, but a few are a bit lacking in comparison to others.
Highlights: Jewel, Ride a White Swan, Summertime Blues, The Wizard, One Inch Rock, Sun Eye
Lowlights: Diamond Meadows, Root of Star, The Children of Rarn
In relation to other albums:
Hmm. I'd like to say it's their best of what I have, that being Electric Warrior, The Slider and Tanx.


05 Nov 2011: "Pieces of Eight" by Styx
Ugh. This album was very disappointing. Aside from the two big singles, it's either filler or just okay. You'll forget most of the album by tea time THE BIG HOCKEY GAME
Highlights: Long Nights, Renegade
Lowlights: Aku-aku, The Message
In relation to other albums:
I'll probably wait to listen to other Styx albums until much later.


06 Nov 2011: "Sticky Fingers" by The Rolling Stones
I never really got into The Rolling Stones. I just didn't try. This was my first full album from them, and it was pretty good. Only one song was really fillery, and the rest were good to orgasmic.
Also, the worst song on the album is between the two best. Fuck.
Highlights: Can't You Hear Me Knockin', Bitch
Lowlights: You Gotta Move
In relation to other albums:
Considering this album has their two best songs (that I've heard), it'll be hard to beat.


07 Nov 2011: "Vampire Weekend" by Vampire Weekend
After listening to Contra, I got interested in Vampire Weekend. Their first album (this one) is pretty good.
Highlights: Mansard Roof, A-Punk
Lowlights: Cape Cod Kask;dhajks Wagksafh, Bryn, The Kids Don't Stand a Chance
In relation to other albums:
Contra was MUCH better.


08 Nov 2011: "Alligator Farm" by Paul Gilbert
FUCK YEAH PAUL GILBERT
Best album of the month so far.
Highlights: Attitude Boy Will Overcome, Alligator Farm, Individually Twisted, Better Chords
Lowlights: Let the Computer Decide, Two Become One, Koto Girl
In relation to other albums:
Will definitely do another of his next month.


09 Nov 2011: "A Very She & Him Christmas" by She & Him
Okay, okay. I only listened to Volume Two because Zooey is hot. There, I said it. But I actually like her music. So there. Yes, I only watched New Girl because Zooey is hot. I'm not sure if I like the show because of Zooey or because it's a good show. Probably the former.
Highlights: Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Baby it's Cold Outside, Sleigh Ride
Lowlights: I'll be Home for Christmas, Blue Christmas
In relation to other albums:
Volume One was the best by far, and Volume Two was pretty great. This one is the worst of the three, but only because it's, well, nothing new.


10 Nov 2011: "They Only Come Out at Night" by The Edgar Winter Group
You already know the two best songs on it, but the rest of the album is pretty good. Nothing's actually bad.
Yeah.
Highlights: Frankenstein, Free Ride
Lowlights: When it Comes, Undercover Man
In relation to other albums:
I have no idea where to go from here. So I may not.


11 Nov 2011: "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" by Smashing Pumpkins
I didn't expect to like this album, but I actually did. Well, most of it. It's the first and only double album so far this month.
Highlights: Zero, Here is No Why, Bullet with Butterfly Wings, An Ode to No One, X.Y.U., We Only Come Out at Night, Lily
Lowlights: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Take Me Down
In relation to other albums:
Well, I liked Siamese Dream best between it, Mellon Collie, Gish and Zeitgeist, but it's hard to choose. They're all great.


12 Nov 2011: "This is Spinal Tap" by Spinal Tap
I decided that since Nigel Tufnel was in RPGboot, I should probably listen to his music. So I did. And I really liked it. It's a great album.
Highlights: Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight, Hellhole, America, Cups and Cakes, Sex Farm
Lowlights: Big Bottom, Listen to the Flower People
In relation to other albums:
I'll definitely listen to something else by them. Most likely not Break Like the Wind.


13 Nov 2011: "Ready an' Willin'" by Whitesnake
It's a really good album, among their best. Little to no filler.
Fool for Your Loving '80 is so much better than Fool for Your Loving '89.
Highlights: Fool for Your Loving, Ready an' Willin', Black and Blue
Lowlights: Carry Your Load, Love Man
In relation to other albums:
Lovehunter is still the best, with this, Forevermore and 1987 close behind. I've gone off Slide it In.


14 Nov 2011: "Venus and Mars" by Paul McCartney and Wings
Mostly great, and pretty much what a followup to Band on the Run should sound like. It isn't The Beatles-quality the whole way through, but most of the songs could have made it onto one of their albums (especially with competition like Rocky Raccoon, Revolution 1, Because and Across the Universe).
Highlights: Venus and Mars/Rock Show, Venus and Mars Reprise, Spirits of Ancient Egypt, Medicine Jar, Call Me Back Again
Lowlights: Crossroads Theme, Zoo Gang, Lunch Box/Odd Socks
In relation to other albums:
About on par with Band on the Run, better than McCartney and Ram.


15 Nov 2011: "Imagine" by John Lennon
Apart from the godawful title track, it's an amazing album. Imagine probably wouldn't have made a The Beatles album, since it's a ripoff of Don't Look Back in Anger.
Highlights: How do You Sleep?, Jealous Guy, Oh My Love, Oh Yoko!
Lowlights: Imagine
In relation to other albums:
Plastic Ono Band was the best by far, but Imagine is right on par with Mind Games and Walls and Bridges.


16 Nov 2011: "Y Not" by Ringo Starr
Fun fact: I wanted to do the self-titled, but it wasn't on Mediafire.
Y Not has compositions better than any of Ringo's pre-Octopus' Garden (which is, like, Don't Pass Me By and... Don't Pass Me By).
Highlights: Y Not, Fill in the Blanks, Time, Mystery of the Night, Can't do it Wrong
Lowlights: Who's Your Daddy
In relation to other albums:
If I can find self-titled, I'll definitely review it.


17 Nov 2011: "Thirty-Three and a Third" by George Harrison
When I first started this, I thought Mediafire gave me someone else's album. This is Harrison's most groovetastic album.
Fun fact: I wanted to do Pete Best's "Best of the Beatles" after this, but fuck Mediafire.
Highlights: Woman Don't You Cry for Me, This Song, Crackerbox Palace
Lowlights: Learning to Love You
In relation to other albums:
Better than Cloud Nine, worse than All Things Must Pass.


18 Nov 2011: "Safely from the City" by Locksley
You don't care. Just keep moving.

19 Nov 2011: "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds" by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

Highlights: Stop the Clocks, The Death of You and Me, What a Life!, Broken Arrow
Lowlights: Everybody's on the Run
In relation to other albums:
Far better than Beady Eye's effort. Score one Noel.


20 Nov 2011: "Then Play On" by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac
SO MUCH FILLER
Fun fact: I tagged this as being by "Peter Green" because I don't want people to think I like shit music.
Highlights: Oh Well
Lowlights: Underway, Madge anything
In relation to other albums:
Probably not gonna go for another.


21 Nov 2011: "On Avery Island" by Neutral Milk Hotel
After seeing ITAOTS on /mu/ forever, I decided to listen and liked it. I couldn't find this one anywhere, so here we are.
Highlights: Naomi, Song Against Sex, Gardenhead/Leave Me Alone
Lowlights: Marching Theme, Avery Island/April First, Pree Sisters Swallowing a Donkey's Eye
In relation to other albums:
Naomi is their best song, and Song Against Sex and Gardenhead/Leave Me Alone are in the top five, but ITAOTS is better overall.

22 Nov 2011: "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" by Arctic Monkeys
Picked this because they'd been sitting in my recommendations for ages and DAC totally likes them. DAC has never led me astray before.
The album reminds me of, well, Oasis. Both Liam and... this guy are pointlessly British.
None of the album is bad.
Highlights: Mardy Bum, Perhaps Vampires is a Bit Strong but..., Dancing Shoes
Lowlights: The View from the Afternoon, Fake Tales of San Francisco, Red Light Indicates Doors are Secured
In relation to other albums:
I liked it a lot. I'll definitely maybe do another next month.

23 Nov 2011: "Attack and Release" by The Black Keys
While I was playing Saints Row 3 and listening to the radio station I fashioned out of old cassette tapes, I said "NEXT BAND GETS A REVIEW". The Black Keys won it.
Granted, SR3's song, Next Girl, isn't on Attack and Release, but fuck Brothers seriously (i'll probably review it later)
Highlights: Remember When Side B, So He Won't Break, Strange Times
Lowlights: Remember When Side A
In relation to other albums:
Rubber Factory is still the best, far and away. Self-titled is second still, but Attack and Release is better than Magic Potion.

24 Nov 2011: "Sublime" by Sublime
Ugh. I jokingly said to myself, "if both sublime songs i know are on the same album i'll review it". Well, here we are.
It's mediocre as fuck apart from four songs. Fuck.
Highlights: What I Got, What I Got Reprise, Under My Voodoo, Santeria
Lowlights: Garden Grove, The Ballad of Johnny Butt, Pawn Shop
In relation to other albums:
NEVER AGAIN

25 Nov 2011: "Thriller" by Michael Jackson
Well, it's a classic album. There's that. I figured I had to listen to it at least once.
I liked the vast majority of it, though The Girl is Mine dragged on towards the end, and Human Nature was abominable filler.
Highlights: Beat It, Thriller, Pretty Young Thing
Lowlights: Human Nature
In relation to other albums:
I actually really liked it, sans Human Nature. Shame I have no idea where to go from here.

26 Nov 2011: "Physical Graffiti" by Led Zeppelin
I wanted a safe album today. Safe-ish.
Despite losing momentum in the middle (the first disc would be immaculate if it hadn't crashed and fucking burned at the end), this album was pretty great, beginning and ending strong.
Highlights: Custard Pie, Trampled Underfoot, Houses of the Holy
Lowlights: Kashmir
In relation to other albums:
Hmm. I think I like Houses of the Holy best still, but this is right up there with II and III for me, and better than I, Old Man Carrying a Bundle of Sticks and Presence.

I thought why not. ALSO IT WAS SUGGESTED BY YELLOW
None of this was bad.
Highlights: Made of Stone, I am the Resurrection, This is the One
Lowlights: Sugar-Spun Sister
In relation to other albums:
May do the other of theirs later.

28 Nov 2011: "Superunknown" by Soundgarden
I figured I'd give this a try because I love Spoonman and Black Hole Sun, even though Badmotorfinger was less than superwhelming.
The first twelve tracks range from "pretty good" to "orgasmic", meaning that if they'd stopped there, we'd have a super-good album.
However, this was not the case. Fourth of July is boring, Half is just odd, but mercifully half the length of the average Superunknown track. Like Suicide, however, decides mercy is for the weak and gives us seven minutes of grade-a filler. It takes skill to get that much filler into one song. I may not be being fair. I did like the guitar solo, but too little, too late.
The last song, She Likes Surprises, wraps the album up on a good note, but it doesn't even come close to making up for the last three songs.
Highlights: Spoonman, Black Hole Sun, Superunknown, The Day I Tried to Live
Lowlights: Like Suicide, Fourth of July, Half
In relation to other albums:
Better than Badmotorfinger, at least. It even has, like, one more standout track.

29 Nov 2011: "You Could Have it so Much Better" by Franz Ferdinand
It caught my eye when I scrolled down the list. This is the last Franz Ferdinand album I had left, meaning no more album reviews from them until the fourth album comes out.
I can see you trying to hold back your tears.
This entire album was really good, like the other two. Nothing on it was less than "good", with a lot of tracks I'd put as "orgasmic".
It's worth noting that I hadn't heard any songs from this album before today.
Highlights: You Could Have it so Much Better, I'm Your Villain, You're the Reason I'm Leaving, Well That Was Easy
Lowlights: Fade Together
In relation to other albums:
Not as good as self-titled, slightly better than Tonight.

Oh. Well, this is awkward.

30 Nov 2011: "The Age of the Understatement" by The Last Shadow Puppets
It's basically Arctic Monkeys guy and... some other guy. Doing shit.
Since Arctic Monkeys guy is the one singing, it pretty much sounds like a slightly downplayed Whatever People Say I Am, which I feel works better than WPSIA.
No bad songs, and nothing really lags behind the rest. It's a very consistent album; if you like one song, you'll probably like the rest of the album.
Highlights: My Mistakes Were Made for You, Standing Next to Me
Lowlights: Time Has Come Again, I Don't Like You Any More
In relation to other albums:
It's their only album, so I'll compare it to Whatever People Say I Am. Again. I really liked both albums, but I'd put this one ahead slightly. If you like one, you'll probably like the other.

01 Dec 2011: "Yesterday and Today" by The Beatles
Another American hodgepodge. Basically, it's what's left of Rubber Soul and Help! after America got through with them, plus some non-album singles and tracks from Revolver, which wasn't even out in Britain yet.
It features the two best songs off Revolver, leaving next month's review of American Revolver at a deficit.
Highlights: I'm Only Sleeping, And Your Bird Can Sing, Drive My Car, Yesterday, We Can Work it Out
Lowlights: Doctor Robert, Nowhere Man, What Goes On
In relation to other albums:
Even better than American Rubber Soul, and, hell, better than British Revolver. Well, not that that's hard. Most American albums are better than British Revolver, the only exception being American Revolver, since all it has going for it is Got to Get You Into My Life and For No One. And Yellow Submarine, I guess?

02 Dec 2011: "A Flock of Seagulls" by A Flock of Seagulls
It's important to note that I reviewed the "alternate track listing", as written on Wikipedia, because that's what mediafire gave me. I got a really good extra track, Tokyo, so I'd call it a win.
I tried this album because hey why not. I also love I Ran, and remembered liking Space-Age Love Song, which was much better than I remembered.
This album was actually much better than I'd thought it would be, despite a slightly average start. Standing in the Doorway has a really cool riff, if you're into that sort of thing. D.N.A. is an instrumental, but it's short and cool. The entire album sounds EXTREMELY new wave-y, probably because, well, it's a new wave album.
Highlights: I Ran, Standing in the Doorway, Space-Age Love Song
Lowlights: Man-Made, Modern Love is Automatic, Messages
In relation to other albums:
Did A Flock of Seagulls even do anything else?
... they have five albums?!

03 Dec 2011: "Burning Organ" by Paul Gilbert
Half of this album is really super-good, but half is just okay. A bit of a disappointment, actually.
The title track is an instrumental, sure, but it's one of the best instrumentals I've heard. Is it just me, or are those high voices during it saying "motherfucker"? Am I just crazy?
A lot of this album is very similar to Alligator Farm; I Like Rock is a lot like Better Chords: The Reckoning; Amy is Amazing seems a bit like Rosalinda Told Me 2.0; Muscle Car seems like Cut, Cut, Cut II and so on.
Highlights: Keep on Keepin' On, Suicide Lover, I am Satan, Burning Organ
Lowlights: I Feel Love
In relation to other albums:
Alligator Farm was much better, but this album is, you know, pretty good.

I said "why not" and just went for it.
Nothing on the album is bad per se. You know.
Highlights: All I Wanted, Misguided Ghosts, The Only Exception, Feeling Sorry
Lowlights: Brick by Boring Brick, Playing God
In relation to other albums:
Riot! was much better overall.

Basically, I went for this because I love I Want it All. I reviewed the 2011 deluxe remaster thing.
This version has two versions of I Want it All, one being the single version (featured in Rock Band), and the other, of course, being the album version. The single version starts with the acapella "I WANT IT ALL I WANT IT ALL I WANT IT ALL AND I WANT IT NOW", while the album version launches into the riff. I can't decide which I like more.
The album also has three versions of The Invisible Man, mercifully spread out, unlike some special editions I could mention.
Aside from two songs, Party and Chinese Torture, this is an amazing album. Chinese Torture isn't bad; it's just okay. Party is an awful, overdone... thing. It does lead into Khajhfwohflhs Ship, though, so I guess it's okay.
I'd also say this album features Brian May's best solos, and Hang on in There has a riff in the vein of The Hitman or Dead on Time.
Highlights: I Want it All, I Want it All, Kkhasgkhsalj Ship, The Invisible Man, The Miracle, Breakthrough, Was it All Worth It, Hang on in There
Lowlights: Party, Chinese Torture
In relation to other albums:
I may regret saying this later, but The Miracle is their best album.

06 Dec 2011: "The Dreams We Have as Children" by Noel Gallagher
I reviewed the digital download version, rather than the "free gift" version. If you go for this on mediafire, you may have to download both, since two songs were corrupted on my digital download version.
Basically, this is a live album by Noel and a few friends, and the bulk of their setlist is Oasis songs. This includes songs traditionally sung by Liam. Yes, now we get to hear Noel's version of Liam's songs.
Here's the basic rundown (song name: better singing guy):
It's Good to be Free: Liam; Fade Away: Noel; Cast No Shadow: Noel; Don't Go Away: Noel; Listen Up: Noel; Wonderwall: Noel; Slide Away: Noel; Married with Children: Noel

Noel's songs are all about on par here as with the album versions, except Don't Look Back in Anger, which is actually better. Also included are covers, including All You Need is Love, with a guy who isn't Noel on backing vocals (AND NOEL DOES THE SHE LOVES YOU REPRISE I LOVE NOEL). And something called The Butterfly Collector, which isn't sung by Noel, for some reason. I do not like the guy who isn't Noel.
And there's a song called There is a Light That Never Goes Out that's super-good. It's apparently by The Smiths.
Highlights: Wonderwall, There is a Light That Never Goes Out, The Importance of Being Idle, Slide Away, Sad Song
Lowlights: The Butterfly Collector
In relation to other albums:
Well, overall, it's better versions of Oasis songs.

07 Dec 2011: "Nimrod" by Green Day
This album was actually much better than I thought it'd be. I went for it because Hitchin' a Ride is in my top five Green Day songs, but the rest of the album was great, too.
The only real blemishes are Take Back, which is mercifully one minute long, and Last Ride In, which is an instrumental. An instrumental written and performed by Green Day. Good luck with that.
Highlights: Hitchin' a Ride, Redundant, Good Riddance, King for a Day, Worry Rock, Uptight, Prosthetic Head
Lowlights: Take Back, Last Ride In
In relation to other albums:
On par with (if not slightly better than) Dookie, and better than Insomniac. Doesn't even begin to touch Warning onward, though.

08 Dec 2011: "Jar of Flies" by Alice in Chains
I chose this because I thought I'd get home super-late, but I'm here now but WHATEVER
This EP is super-acclaimed and shit. I figured, I like Alice in Chains, so why not. It was better than I'd expected. The best tracks are near the end, which I wasn't too fond of, but it's definitely worth the wait. They're some of the band's best songs. However, in the middle of the three best tracks is the most fillery instrumental since the last one. Fair warning.
Highlights: Swing on This, No Excuses, Don't Follow
Lowlights: Whale and Wasp
In relation to other albums:
On par with Dirt, slightly better than Facelift, and much better than self-titled.
