Y’all know this is just my opinion, right? What did you think of this album? Love it? Hate it? Why? What should I review next, eh?


Jack's Film Orchard says:

They’re still killin it like always!
Wonderful rainbow and hypermagic mountain are my favourite imo.

Trumanshow says:

I was initially against the purity ring review. But after “hmmmmm” you have to do it. That proves legitimate thought on the it, you know you gladly reached for the album quickly after its discovery. Even imagine the enjoyment Cal would receive with the piece.

Pedro Crispim says:

Melechesh – Enki

thewtfcomedyshow says:

Dream Genie is my jam. Good review. 

Александр Голиков says:

Thanx for awesome blog, dude. Here’s couple releases I think would be great for you to review: Beastmilk – Climax, last Old Man Gloom, recent No Spill Blood, some Retox, The Body, Young Widows and Dead Rider. Cheers!

Duncan Nortier says:

… that to pimp a butterfly pic with your face on it is slightly creepy

chase ruel says:

i thought it wasn’t quite as chaotic as there passed efforts but, focuses more on being heavy and noisy, kinda steering away from the kind of free jazz elements and more pushing towards a more fuzzed out metal sound

Jakob Kiebach says:

I am here for cal…

Abdullah Aly says:

Where can i get this album lyrics , i can’t seem to find them anywhere

Luke Bonadonna says:

im not going to sleep until you review sandy alex g 

Jeff Lebowski says:

Favorite album of the year so far, with the exception of maybe Sleater-Kinney… Though that’ll probably change whenever Jenny Death drops

Ana Reinke says:

Finally, I was wondering when you were going to review any of Lighting Bolt’s albums.

Willaporte says:

I love this record a lot, it might be my AOTYSF and Lightning Bolt is one of my favorite bands, but I do totally see where you’re coming from with this review. Good job AntFant

qtbrown says:

New King Khan and BBQ Show, Fartony Facetano.

Ezequiel Melian says:

What album is that in the back?

Mark Quick says:

it’s pretty great album it does feel a little bit more polished and feels so much intense as before

jason jeffrey says:

I find it their most listenable album to date (and I’m a massive fan).  They seem to have put more thought into each song, structuring them with more care than previous efforts.  And the fidelity is a cut above too, though not so polished as to neuter their trademark, noisy sound.

chase ruel says:

brian chippendale uses the mic from an old school telephone and runs it through a few distortion and delay pedals, very noisy

Robert Becker Becker says:

Review Ra Ra Riot’s Need your light

kreatorexodus says:

I would really love to hear you review or give an opinion of “Incurso” by Spawn of Possession.

Ward says:

This album is freaking amazing. I’m going to see them May 18th. Can’t wait to be right in front of those two genius Brians!

Jonas Wijte says:

Please review the new Enslaved album next!
