    LOL...I mean, even as subjective as your statement is (much more this thread), I don't think you're going to get lambasted with objection here.

    My I-guess-somewhat-controversial comment:

    If you don't like Jazz, I don't like you.

    How awesome would Frank Sinatra Sings the Nine inch Nails Soundbook have been? Frank would have recorded a killer cover of "Something I Can Never Have."

    "Everywhere I go, Jack, you're all I see."

    BTW, the live version is incredible. He sings like he is telling a story we've all been through, some more times than others:

    I honestly think some hardcore NIN fans would dig Frank Sinatra. In some ways, Trent and Frank really do speak the same language--convey the same message, intensity and bare their souls and wear their heart on their sleeve. And the big band swing of Nelson Riddle is just as intense as anything from NIN.

    Ugh, man, this just kills me with its awesomeness (admission: I grew up with Frank's music, my parents were huge fans), Frank's story is just awesome:

    I don't get the hype about Greta Van Fleet. They're just another rock band.

    I don't like any rap from the 90s through current. Including Tupac and Biggie.

    Nirvana is overrated. Soundgarden was the best grunge band between the big four of grunge.

    I think Taylor Swift makes good music.

    Prince made better music than Michael Jackson. Purple Rain > Thriller

    I enjoy Marilyn Manson's music from 2007 - current.

    i don't like their early material (i don't connect with it emotionally at all and musically it's not that interesting), and i don't think that Science Fiction is as amazing as everyone says it is (wants it to be).

    but "the devil & god are raging inside me" is a near-perfect album ("handcuffs" is a weak closer) that helped me through some of the worst depression i've ever suffered, and "daisy" is a perfect album that has an amazing balance of rage & sadness that i find incredibly comforting.

    I haven't listened to "The Devil & God" but I have listened to their newest one and some of the earlier singles. I am willing to give that album a chance though. I am always willing to give a band or artist another chance.

    yeah, science fiction is definitely not a good entry point for this band at all. start with "the devil & god..." and see what you think. oh, and listen to it loud.

    I didn't know where to post this but this 12 year old Alma Deutscher is fucking amazing and fucking scary all at the same time. Please watch the 13 minute video.

    Not really an opinion but there's no thread for random music thoughts. I will just say it's kind of frustrating that a couple of Prince albums aren't on streaming platforms due to label politics throughout the years.

    I listened to this album tonight and it's pretty fucking solid. I'm pleasantly surprised.

    This song perfectly marries the older "emo" Brand New sound with what they were about to fully unleash on Devil & God:



    The best part of probably the best song they've ever wrote:

    https://youtu.be/fSX13jgRxI4?t=3m32s

    The best song on Devil & God THAT THEY NEVER PLAY LIVE ANYMORE:



    How many different 90's bands are they referencing in this one...Weezer, The Eels, etc etc:

    The show I caught last night had CKY as an opener and honestly I've always been a casual fan. I'd classify them as consistent in their output and actually one hell of a live show. Color me impressed.

    science fiction is the only one you like? that's interesting! it's definitely more easily palatable than the devil & god or daisy, while still being interesting and a bit experimental.

    This is probably blasphemy and I do love Bruce Dickinson very dearly. Be that as it may, I think the original Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno was a better singer than Bruce. I love his energy and the punkish quality of Maiden's first 2 albums.

    I'm a Di'Anno fan, i love those first two Maiden albums (specially "Killers"...)

    Dickinson is a better singer in a technical level; but i like Di'Anno's "punkish" voice and attitude better; don't get me wrong Maiden needed a guy like Dickinson to get to the next level and i love the hell out of him; but Di'Anno's work is very underrated....

    While I think Bruce is a better fit for the band, those first two albums are great. You have a punk-rock singer fronting a heavy metal band. It's like he's the wrong singer, but it worked.

    I heard about that and it doesn't surprise me...

    Still, i don't mind; his body of work is one thing, his "issues" are other... if we start to see the flaws in all the artist we like we would be very disappointed, they are fallible persons.
    Even as talented as he was he couldn't put his demons behind and most of this is why he never returned to Maiden; i as a Maiden fan appreciate and love that era but i know that the band needed someone else to move on (both musically and professionally).

    So yes, i'm sure he's a crap human being, but that doesn't take away his talent

    In their heyday I’d take Alice In Chains over Nirvana. And for my money, Facelift, Dirt, and AIC were a better trio of albums than Bleach, Nevermind, and In Utero.
