So definitely not as good as some of their older hits, but definitely better than the majority of the garbage on the last two albums, here is Lords of Summer. The Lyrics kinda sound like they were written my Mrs. Johnsons 3rd grade class after a particularly hard winter, and the riffs seem heavily Mustaine inspired (minus about 3000 interim notes). for the first minute of the song , but eventually find the Metallica feel close to 4 minutes into the 8 minute song. Despite my early criticism I feel we might actually be in for the first pretty good Metallica album in close to 2 decades.
Following the jump is my list of the top 5 Albums of the Year. Feel Free to disagree with me…berate me, belittle me etc. however I chose these albums very specifically for the fact that they are “ALBUMS”. Albums in the sense that I can listen to every song on it the full way through without skipping. It’s a rare thing nowadays to put out a complete album with more than one hit (or for that matter only one listenable song). Each and every one of my five choices are based on the fact that the artist took the time to put out a complete work, and didn’t settle for a couple singles. Just because I didn’t include some of my favorites from this year says nothing about them as artists, but only states that they didn’t cut the fat out of their album.
Let me know what your top Five albums of the year are in the Comments section. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
