So many nostalgic memories you guys are evoking in this thread *tear*
Meaning of Life The whole album clicks for me. You put it in, one song goes then another follows and so on to the point of where you couldn't (or I for the sake of the point) skip through the album b/c everything holds together so well. Ah. I adore it. Intermission is boss. Relaxes you in-between all the goodness, haha. Don't Pick It Up needs to be heard by everyone too. FUN~!

Staring at the Sun was always a favorite while I was a kid. It continues to hold up during these days, but I've grown to love some jams I didn't quite recognize when I was younger off of Americana. Such as Have You Ever?, Walla Walla, & End of the Line. Americana the song is grand. Has the bulk of the hits topped off the namesake piece outside of The Kids Aren't Alright. Which I'd say is on par.

Conspiracy of One is far, far too underrated for my tastes. It gets known as the Original Prankster album and forgotten. It is soooooooo much more than that.

Well i'll be completely honest, my taste in music changed so much with time. Not being a snob about it, I can still go back and listen to Offspring and it'll put a smile on my face. More than anything, it brings me back to when I was very young playing street Hockey and videogaming with my buds. Pennywise, Rancid, Faith no More, Mudhoney and Primus also got a lot of plays... and dare I say, even Silverchair lol

"Intermission" reminded me of what Korn did on Life is Peachy with the song "Lowrider". 'twas there for comic relief more than anything.

I think that tends to be natural progression with most. I don't nearly listen to as much Slipknot these days outside of the same song or two. Doesn't mean I wouldn't claim myself to not be a fan or enjoy any time I play an album of their's. It is what it is on that front. I absolutely worship Between The Buried & Me, while I know a few years ago when I first heard them I had a hard time adjusting to the sound. Now it's right up my alley in the world of Prog Metal. So, without even acknowledging the change it occurs.

Good ol comic relief. I listen to quite a few bands that incorporate shenanigans like that. Interesting.

It's funny how different paths people take despite their points of origin being very similar. I'd say that I got heavily into Heavy metal and Industrial music during the late 90's, then I found an undying love for electronic music and all of it's sub genres.. I also delve into alot of hip-hop, classic/prog/experimental rock, Folk, Punk, Drum & Bass, Jazz Fusion and even indy pop, but Prog Metal isn't something i've focused alot on. I like to be diverse though, so sometimes i'll dip into unfamiliar territory when the mood strikes.


I did have a Slipknot phase back in early highschool, liked Mushroomhead too. Haven't listened to ether in a very long time though

Re: Unpopular Music Opinions

Always fun when you take the time and trail your musical steps to see where you land today. I'm quite set with my tastes now. I'm open and I've found my niche. Which is interesting, I guess, to say the least: Power Metal, Electronica/Dance Pop/Dubstep, & Progressive Metal/Rock. With the outside looking in remaining favorite of The Offspring always lingering. So it's a mix from all corners with myself. I've naturally worked my way into anything that tends to incorporate different instruments into the songs. If it's an orchestra motif, massive keyboard/synth exposure, or any other obscure type of item, I tend to lean towards it.

Ah yes, Mushroomhead. I can't recall the album name, but the one that included Sun Doesn't Rise was the one I happened to fancy. Never pursued more from them outside of the one set. Maybe I should. I know my brother still fancies them. I could pick his brain for some fun.

To turn this into a bit of a forum/on topic with the thread I'll ask you & post it all at the same time (redundant as HELL): I personally prefer Blaqk Audio to AFI. Very minority statement. Not sure if anyone else is very aware of Havoc & Jade's side project. (blarg_ any interest in Blaqk Audio?)

I"ll agree that I MUCH prefer Blaqk Audio to AFI. The singer never did anything for me tbh, but they can get creative with the production. At times, they remind me of bands like Orgy, Placebo and Julien-K.

Seing that you like Blaqk Audio, i'll go out on a limb and assume that you might like IAMX. Visually, he has a Davey Havok thing going, only much more flamboyant. Chris Corner of IAMX is basically a one man show, producing every aspect of his music, even being hands on with his music videos and set designs. Here's what the actual music sounds like:

Re: Unpopular Music Opinions

Oh radical you are familiar with them. And prefer it too. Awesome. Any preference to a favorite song or two?

Orgy. Good thinking. I got that sort of vibe myself. Even with my limited amount of knowledge of the band. (I know their style, but outside of the Blue Monday cover I've never extended into more on a frequent basis. I really should.)

First time I'm hearing IAMX. I'm digging it. All right up that electronic, pseudo/new age Depeche Mode genre. Or maybe that's how I only choose to classify it in my mind. I love to play this music and let it flow through me. You can chill while expressing lots of energy. It's a type I tend to "live through". It speaks to me so much in that capacity.

Funny you should say that because the vibe I got when I listened to IAMX's albums is what you'd get if you threw Depeche Mode, NIne Inch Nails, Placebo and later day Sneaker Pimps (also his project) in a blender. When I watch his music videos, he sorta reminds me of a male Lady Gaga with the eccentricity and creativity. Watched the first single to his new album, and it seems like he's channeling M83 rather than the darker tone he's known for. Definitely something worth getting into, there's no doubt that the man is a master producer.


hmmm...when it comes to Blaqk audio, i'd have to catch up on the songs since it's been a while. I do remember loving Stiff Kittens. Has that EBM flavor, almost Combichrist /Panzer Ag type of thing. I know there were tracks that I found very interesting from them though, i'll try to remember and bring the topic back up at some point.

Well then another wavelength we've managed to parallel right there. The tag of a male Lady Gaga is nearly a hook for myself. The prospects of fishing out such original creativity is promising. Being the Gaga mark for myself I'll anticipate any homage to art in some capacity with him. (unless I'm getting TOO fixated on the Gaga analogy )

Can't go wrong with Stiff Kittens. It has such a commanding intro. For myself I'm hooked on Snuff on Digital & Love Letter. Former has a glorious mix of synth out of the bunch (it's highlighted more than the rest) & goes through some just outrageous channels during the song. Love Letter is simply powerful. I fail to see how it couldn't speak to anyone with what it's conveying. Title of the song speaks for itself.

Making me want to spin a few Black Audio tracks now just to refresh my memory lol Love Letter sounds very familiar, i'm sure I listened to it in the past but my memory is failing me.


Yeah, not sure how fair the Gaga comparison is, but take a look at his videos for "Volatile Times" and "Ghosts of Utopia" and you'll see what I mean. That's the point in his career when his music started taking a more commercial turn. I still like it alot, but I prefer his older work personally, maybe that's just my love for experimentation and analog which he incorporated alot of in the early stages. His time as the Sneaker Pimps frontman is also noteworthy, even if I missed Kelli Ali
