I quite like Machina, actually. A bit long maybe, but it's a good album and I prefer it to Adore. Zeitgeist is my go-to SP album these days, I think I've overplayed the first two again. Mellon Collie is great but far too long, could have been trimmed down considerably.

I can't get into "Zeitgeist". Their weakest record for mine. I'm strictly a first four albums kinda guy. "Siamese Dream" is my favourite closely followed by "Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness".

First two are definitely their strongest, but I've just overplayed them - first when they came out, then when the reissues were released. Weakest by far for me would be Machina II and that whole Teargarden... clusterfuck. Just a mess, each of them.

'Siamese Dream' and 'Gish' for me. 'Melon Collie...' (like a lot of albums, but perhaps more so here) has too much fluff, but it's high points are among their best. I find 'Adore' interesting for the direction taken, but it has its weak points too. I'm not all that fussed with the 'reformation' albums.

The sprawl of Melon Collie is part of its appeal. Was one of the few double albums of its time. It is too long, but there are many great songs on it. It's a close second to Siamese Dream.

Supposedly the reunited lineup are recording new music with Rick Rubin, or least plan to.

Sebastian Bach? Who let him in? What's next? Slash hanging out with the Butthole Surfers?

Doro Pesch hanging out with Skinny Puppy?

Good grief.

Yeah, that struck me as a bit bizarre, as well.

I literally can't believe that soon we'll have a new Tool album to listen to.

A new Tool album.


FTW!!!

The new Kamelot song is actually pretty catchy in a good way. I'm not a fan of the band though.

The new ATG song isn't as bad as the previous one, but still can't make up its mind about what it actually wants to sound like.

So apparently Roy Khan released something new. Unfortunately, it's also sappy as shit.

They are just facing the same problem that most bands from the past who reform after long periods of time face: a lack of surety about their musical direction.

The problem with At The Gates is that, regardless of claims made here or elsewhere, they are really only known for Slaughter of The Soul. If they hadn't released that album, and if it hadn't been so unexpectedly influential on US metal, few people would be talking about them right now other than aging scenesters from back in the day like myself.

In short, they only released what, 3 albums? They weren't around long then they returned after decades of inactivity. Is it any wonder that they are kind of confused about what to do?

The style that they are conforming to now has had its day and hasn't progressed at all over the last 15 years. All they really have going for them now is name recognition and a reputation as being legends from the old days.

I don't think anybody in their right mind expects greatness from them in 2018.

So there's a rumor that Conception have reformed and are working on a new studio album;

Regardless of whether you like Godsmack or not, it is worth hearing for the WTF aspect. A middle aged metal band tries their hand at Linkin Park meets Paramore by way of what the fuck, some generic pop stuff. Just an odd move all round.



Blacklore might dig it though :D
