My CCs for All Hail the Riff 2009 Mix Tape

Loved

Check My Brain #29 on my 2009 H100.

Liked

Armageddon Blues I like most of what I have heard from Power Trip.
I can't explain why; I just do. Intense (like Get the Shot).
Oblivion in my H100.
The Golden Rule.
Head Crusher. But prefer at least two others from this album.
Peeled Apples.
Lucifer's Rocking Chair. But it is from a 2008 album :(
Bible Black. I know others will love seeing this here though.

Okay

100 Little Curses. I'd normally hate this but it was done well, except for those annoying 'Yeahs'.
(Why do rappers do that? Ahhh).
Wither. Has its moments. Cool drumming. But too operatic and dragged on.
Lost in a Loop. Cool riffing; not so cool vocals. They don't even seem to suit the music for first half.

Didn't do it for me

No One Loves Me and Neither Do I. Songs like this just reinforce my amazement at the love
for everything Josh touches. Boring rock.


Discoveries

Peeled Apples surprised me. Not what I expected when I saw Manic Street Preachers in list.
The Power Trip song went straight into my list too.

Order

Yes. Killer start that does what it says on the box (mix name).
Wither hen brings in a nice change of pace.
Side A has a pretty cool feel to it.
A downer start to Side B for me.
First song is meh and next couple are quite long, making it a slow build.
But build is does. Bible Black into The Golden Rule works, and then a cracking finish.
Excelent use of bonus tracks. I like when these take chances and mix things up.

Overall

I lot here I liked (obviously), but few that I loved.
Too many longer songs on Side B for me.
Plenty of solid material, but just not enough really grabbing me.
Still, I'd be happy to hear this mix playing at a party.
A fairly good mix and representation of the year (except for lack of punk and inclusion of 2008 song).

CCs: 3.5/5

My CCs for He Said, She Said 2009 Mix Tape

Loved

Check My Brain #29 on my 2009 H100.
Jars. In my H100.

Liked

Sundial.
Dragonfly.

Okay

Crawl. I like Breaking Benjamin more than most, but this doesn't stand out from rest.
Spellbound. Not a huge fan of this operatic metal sound. Cool solo though.
World So Cold. I know a lot dislike these guys.
I don't love them, but yet to hear anything I dislike either.
Panic Switch. I only know a couple of songs from these guys.
This just not doing it for me (too long too), but didn't dislike either.
Ignorance. Despite loving my pop-punk, I have not listened to a lot of Paramore.
This doesn't make me feel like rushing out to do so. It's okay. Like Avril Lavigne.
Again.
You're Going Down.
Dirty Work.

Didn't do it for me

None


Discoveries

I've only got 1 song from Cosmic Egg in my 2009 H100.
So it was good to hear another I liked. Added to Checking Out.
Dragonfly had enough for me to want to check more of Shaman's Harvest out.

Order

Nice start. Jars is such a grower.
Wanes for a bit. Side A all a very similar pace.
Needed a harder or faster song to kick off Side B.
A little of a change up when we get to Panic Switch.
Paramore seemed an odd song to end with after what came before it.
The bonus tracks are two more of similar sound and pace as rest of album :(

Overall

Well, I did not have any tracks where I could not find something I liked.
But the mix overall is too one-paced and very similar in heaviness too.
Not enough variety for me and only two crackers which i already knew.
At least there was something new for me in Shaman's Harvest.

CCs: 3/5

My CCs for Ghost Gunman with Blue Eyes 2009 Mix Tape

Loved

Prehistoric Dog. #2 on my 2009 H100. Could easily be #1.
Killer riffs and fucking awesome video. If you have not seen it; do so.
Just Breathe #4 on my 2009 H100. Beautiful song. Love it.
This is on my funeral list for any fuckers that out live me. Remember.
The Quitter #13 on my 2009 H100.
Last of My Kind. Can't go wrong with AIC.
This is in my H100, bu I have 2 of AIC songs higher.
A Really Cool Dance Song. In my H100. I am a sucker for these guys.
I Dread the Night. I had no idea this punter liked these guys.
I had 2 other songs from this album in my H100… this one just joined them.
Dialectic Chaos in my H100.

Liked

On the Other Side. Cool stoner rock. Check Universal for a better song though.
I Will Not Bow. I know many don't like these guys, but I do.
Ghost of Karelia.
Bullets with Blue Eyes. Added to Checking Out.

Okay

Gunman. Has a nice bounce to it, but vocals bore me.

Didn't do it for me

None


Discoveries

Nothing More was new to me & piqued my interest.
Somehow I had missed I Dread the Night. Glad I heard this to add to my H100.

Order

Dialectic Chaos is just such a cool opening track and leads well into the next.
Side A held my attention through and I liked how it closed.
Killer way to kick off Side B!
The cool Gallows song just punches you in the head after nodding off to song before.
Then back to the best kind of mellow. Wow.
Even though I like other songs from the album better, Ghost of Karelia
made for a solid ending to album.
First bonus track an excellent choice. The other should have been in the mix :P

Overall

Well, not much here that I did not like or love.
A couple of surprises that were cool.
Had Quitter replaced Gunman, this would be close to perfect for me :)

No new songs added to my Checkign Out list or H100s.
But Carol Brown was a nice surprise for me.

Order

A few long songs to start rarely does it for me.
Steel Panther a little let down as end for Side A,
as was Europe kicking off Side B.
Thank you for The Fixer to liven up Side B.
Good to see someone having fun with the bonus tracks.

Overall

Funny, but the supergroups here are among my least favourites.
I so wish Dave sang more on the Them Crooked Vultures album.
Surprsied this Steel Panter made it over Death to All But Metal.
Given kudos for throwing in a few curveballs.
I'm just not a huge fan of some of the 'metal' vocaaaaals or the operatic elements to some songs.
Just not enough here that I love, nor any new stuff I want to hear more.

My CCs for Miscellaneous Mess 2004 Mix Tape

Loved
Blueprint for the Fall. Cracking song. I love this whole Strung Out album.
Guns of Memorial Park.

Liked
I Predict a Riot. I was sceptical about this band, but played this song a little while ago, so was ready for it. & I like.
Scars. A song I knew once I heard it.
Glitter & Trauma. Some great sounds (that chorus could be the best here), but if only they could capture their live sound.
Ch-Check It Out.
Jay Frenzal. A song about one of our Aussie favs. A bit of fun.
Keep Your Mouth Shut. Some cracking riffs here.

Okay
Three Nil.
Accidents.
Top Gun.
The Great Dividers.

Not for Me

1. Was order good? Like bonus tracks?
The slow, electronic intro to Biffy Clyro might have been better starting a side to the album.
The first few seem a bit disjointed and could be reordered.
Blueprint for the Fall is a good side closer though :)
Side B ups the ante, with a run of heavy songs.
I did not hate these, but several in a row was bludgeoning and testing me out.
I thought there was going to me more variety before starting this mix.
Could have done with the Beastie Boys in 2nd half to give me a chance to 'check my head'.
Scars almost sounds pop after Side B ;) I liked the bonus tracks to lighten things up.

2. Fav track? Least fav?
Favourite is the Strung Out song by some way & only track I had in my 2004 H100.
Least fav, probably The Great Dividers but might only be b/c it was last in the metal run.

3. Did you discover new tracks?
Okay, so being 1/2 of At the Drive-In, I have tried Sparta several times before.
Somehow it never gelled. Seems I might have to try again, b/c I loved Guns of Memorial Park kicking this off.

4. General comments.
I don't really gel with the whole Side B and I think this could be reordered.
But very few of the other songs are absolute favourites either.
Still, it was good to finally get someone to get me onto to Sparta. Solid start.
I did not dislike a song too. :)

My CCs for RIP Dimebag 2004 Mix Tape

Loved
Jesus of Suburbia. I'm not normally a fan of songs with parts, but this is brilliant.
Blood & Thunder took a long time to grow on me, but that opening riff is heaven.
Freakin' Out. A new song for me, but I really enjoyed.

Liked
Slither
Suicide. Lemmy can't do bad. Very good, not great. Solos are killer.
Take Me Out. The kind of song that is good fun, if you don't hear it too often.

Okay
Duality. I love the singing and chorus; hated the spoken word parts. Music solid.
Float On
Blacklist. Does what it does. Solid metal. Good riff. Didn't need to be over 6 mins,
though I love how it ends :)
Reborn. Solid, but generic riff. Didn't like some vocals.
Wake Up. I was trying hard not to let my live experience of this band taint this song.
I didn't hate it. There were annoying parts/sounds, but also good bits like The Flaming Lips.

Not for Me
Athanati Este. Cool choice for bonus track, but not my thing.
It was what expected though with a name like Rotting Christ. ;)

1. Was order good? Like bonus tracks?
A great choice to open proceedings. Hit with an awesome riff straight up.
Luckily it is a shorter Mastodon song as we head into the mult-part Green Day track.
I like the journey of the mix. Works its way down from Mastodon to Modest Mouse,
so it is not such a sudden contrast.Unlike following it with Damageplan.
Kicks the intensity straight back up. It builds or maintains from there, until, Arcade Fire.
Odd inclusion right between all the metal. Maybe a better bonus track.
Also, too many longer songs for mine. Loses momentum.
Also odd pairing off bonus tracks - not that that is a bad thing; that's what they're for.

2. Fav track? Least fav?
Jesus of Suburbia. But is was cool to put an unknown long into the Loved grouping too.
Least favs: Wake Up and Athanati Este.

3. Did you discover new tracks?
OK, I had no idea who Graham Coxon was until another punter posted about him being in Blur.
I really liked the fuzzed out guitars and snottiness of Freakin' Out.
A bloody cool track that I had never heard!

4. General comments.
It ws great to get a new favourite here. Overall, there was not a lot I did not like,
though I lost interest. Order could be different and separate the long songs.
It is a cool collection of several different elements of the year.
Just not enough up my alley to want to play over and over.
Still, it embraced the ideal of what we are going for and I like that. :)
A good mix of popular and obscure, heavy and not so heavy, etc.

Ever Onward. More, solid stoner-like rock. I tht Zeke were more punk rock.

Okay
Whiter Shade of Pale

Not for Me

1. Was order good? Like bonus tracks?
Straight up rock to kick things off with first 2 tracks. Then the fuzzed out tones of Fu Manchu.
This mix just keeps rocking. It isn't until Motorhead that is slows done a little.
(I never thought I would be saying that).
being too one-paced could be a negative, but was not for me, as I like these rockers.
Whiter Shade of Pale is certainly a cool change up for a bonus track.
After relentless rock, we get a piano ballad.
When I could not find Jet in my 2004 H100 list I thought there was a problem. There was.
This was released in 2003. :( (So I have not inc. in the songs above).

2. Fav track? Least fav?
I did not really have a standout favourite.
Least is obvious from above.

3. Did you discover new tracks?
The Carburetors have only recently come to my attention through our #TransportSongs run.
So, I don't know indiv' songs. Burning Rubber here is brilliant.
Survival of the Sickest & Everybody Ready was first time I have heard these and they are cool!

4. General comments.
A very good straight up rock list. Despite not having any songs from my favourite albums from 2004,
this album rocked all the way through and I liked all songs.
It was great to hear several new songs that I liked immediately too.
Just a lack of a couple of absolute balltearers holding this back.
I can't split it from last mix I listened to. :P

Well, it kicks off with my #1 song for 04, so that's a good start.
I like Slither and A Decade Under the Influence is a Top 10 for me.
Los Angeles is Burning is Top 20 on my list, so great to here.
I feel the pace falls away as album goes on.
I like McLusky but maybe a few too many mid-slow pace near each other.
Both bonus tracks not my thing.

2. Fav track? Least fav?
Fav: This play I'm going with A Decade Under the Influence, though of course it is American Idiot :P
Least: Either of bonus tracks.

3. Did you discover new tracks?
What You Get was completely new to me & I really liked it.
It sounds like a lot of Aussie acts I like right now.
I've not listened to a lot of Von Bondies either and I quite liked C'Mon, C'mon.

4. General comments.
This was fun. Loved the first half. I added 2 songs to my own list, so that was a good result.
I did not extpect to like the last few but they weren't too bad, just not for me.
A decent 2004 mix, but probably needed a little more bite for mine. ;)

Re: 2004 - 7Rock MixTapes by ConnorsConnors, 08 Nov 2020 23:24
Suicidal Tendencies 0 Freedumb Nov20. The title track opens with a heavy-hitting riff. It is another 'chant' style song, but does its job of kickstarting proceedings. I love that the first few tracks are all short and to the point. They rock too. Ain't Gonna Take It also has a massive riff. Scream Out manages to have a standout funk bass depite flying along. then things slow down for the ska-like start to the bouncy Halfway Up My Head. I love this song. It was the first to standout on these listens. The band reference songs here are the only ones I knew before listening. Cyco Vision & We are Family both fly along with some of their best punk rock fury since their debut. I Ain't Like You sounds like a cross between Quicksand and CIV and has a great mix of slow and fast. Naked is catchy as all hell. In fact, several of these songs in the middle and second half, remind me a lot of The Bouncing Souls. What a cool album that brought back a lot of the punk urgency. Despite the loss of Trujilo, there is still some funky bass too. Even the Red Hot Chili Pepper-like Heaven seems an appropriate way to finish this. The songs are just consistently good here and none overstay their welcome. I've just found my new favourite Suicidal Tendencies album. 4.5/5
Suicidal Tendencies 5 ST Nov20. I am quite surprised this is a 1983 album. I am only familiar with Istitutionalized - a song as crazy as its name suggests it is, but always brings a smile to your face. The opening double track is very good with its dueling vocals. I love the fast riffing of Possessed; the bass, in particular, sounds cool. The slower riff of Subliminal is pretty cool, including when it shirts to flat out. The bass intro (and the whole song actually) to Won't Fall in Love Today reminds me of what Pennywise love to do. I bet they loved this song. There must be a story behind I Saw Your Mommy…. If someone explains it to me I might be able to listen to the whole song without skipping. I Want More really sets you up with its slow intro. You just know it is going to go off at some stage, but it waits to the point where you start to wonder if you are going to get a whole slow song, and at that moments it takes off. We get lots of changes of pace within songs. The vocals are sometimes part spoken word, but not in an annoying way. The are like a recital in a way as Mike takes on the personas of the characters in the songs. This has the punk energy of early hardcore but sounds like more fun as Mike's lyrics go from serious to humourous, and always intriguing. There are metal moments too, supporting the idea these guys were pioneers of thrash. I was deciding between a 3 or a 3.5, knowing that with further listens this would go up and giving me to room with the rest of Suicidal's discography, but with only a couple more listens, I am already at a… 4/5
Suicidal Tendencies 0 Suicidal for Life Nov20. This starts off with more pissed-off spoken word and just as I was about to skip I tuned in and then the cool riff for Don't Give a Fuck kicks in and my attention returned. I love everything about No Fuck'n Problem; such as cool riff and fun groove to it. This is actually a very catchy song. With a run of four songs with 'fuck' in the title, I was hoping this wasn't going to be too ranty/angro, but we got off to a good start. It does head that way after the first couple. Suicyco Muthafucka is there 'band chant' they seem to have to have on every album and it just doesn't work for me. Fucked Up Just Right has some okay moments (the parts where I think this is what the Beastie Boys would sound like if they tried metal). No Bullshit could be easily written off, but that fuzzed guitar riff and the drumming really make this song rip.What Else Could I Do? is a lot of fun when the pace picks up, but a tad drearly during the lengthy slow parts. But the transition between the two is very cool and there is some of the best bass playing I have heard when this hits its straps. What You Need's A Friend is pretty cool for the most part. It's a hard one to describe, but has a bit of alt-metal feel to it. I Wouldn't Mind has another cool riff driving the song along and it is another where the drums stand out too. The jam session and solo in the second half actually remind me of I Mother Earth on their album Dig. Depression and Anguish and Evil has their moments two. I am really digging the guitar tone on this album. Almost Alice in Chains like. Love is Lonliness is a long end to the album. Not bad though with a great bass and riff in middle. Still, I was surprised to see the singles released for this album. Feelings are right now, that this is my favourite ST album since their debut. 4/5
Suicidal Tendencies 1 Join the Army Nov20. So, once again, I go into a Sudicidal album only really knowing one song. It is quite obvious that one song is Possessed to Skate. I saw that one many times on RAGE and it ia a cool song with a cool video. I listened through to this album a few times. It was playing in the background whilst I was writing and nothing really stood out. Then I gave it one more spin just focusing on the songs, and like the first album, several songs started to worm their way into my head. I tended to enjoy most of this, without much really blowing me away. Suicidal Maniac is a frenetic start, then Join the Army slows things down with some cool bass. But of course this does not last; halfway through the song it takes off with thrash bombast, before finishing with almost grunge-like chugging. The Prisoner is similar. War Inside My Head has a cool chant that the live audience can participate in. I Feel Your Pain has some of the flat-out vocals that you have no hope of keeping up with. There is nothing wrong with the last four songs either, without any of them really standing out. Overall, I liked this, but more listens still needed to distinguish some songs. Probably just behind their debut at this stage. 3.5/5
Suicidal Tendencies 1 Lights… Camera… Revolution Nov20. The fourth Suicidal album straight where I have one song 'thumbed' (meaning it is in my H100 song list for that year). This time is is the first track, You Can't Bring Me Down. I love its punk-like chant and driving rhythm. The slow part of the song could have been cut, but it is cool to see Mike's cool, conversational vocals back. Lost Again goes full metal, especially in the second half, but there just seems to be more to songs like this that make them better than the thrash of last album. Maybe it is the funky bass of Trujillo; maybe they just wrote better songs. There is certainly more appeal here than on the last album. Still, there were not a lot of individual songs that really leapt out at me. Get Whacked maybe? Send Me Your Money has good lyrics. Two of the last three songs did little for me. On first play, Alone and Lovely passed me by without getting my attention. I saw they were singles, so went and gave them another listen. Alone is almost aweful for its first half; not bad when the pace picks up. Lovely has some cool funk moments, but some shitty vocals too. Still, overall, a sound I liked more than last album. 3.5/5
Suicidal Tendencies 0 World Gone Mad Nov20. So, this album is noteworthy because Dave Lombardo joined on drums, though I loved the last drummer (who I saw live with Infectious Grooves). Lombardo does seem to bring a heavier style, as overall this seems like a return to more metal influences, with ripping solos and longer songs. The opener, Slap Like Ozzy is fast and furious with some cool slap bass. The New Generation has a meaty riff. Living for Life speeds up proceedings. These first three took a few listens, but I enjoyed them. Get Your Fight On! settles into such a cool groove and was the first song that stood out to me. The bouncy title track is interesting and I like the different vocals on it. The Struggle Is Real is a throwback to their faster, punkier songs, which is juxtaposed with the slow and brooding STill Dying to Live. Despite being long, this song takes off in the second half and really grew on me. I love the guitar in the slower parts. They did not next the next slow song after this one to end. I detected a guitar tone not unlike Vernon Reid's of Living Colour in parts throughout the album. I can't state exactly where now, but that was something I noticed as the album was playing in the background. The album certainly got better with more listens. 3.5/5
Suicidal Tendencies 1 How Will I Laugh Tomorrow, When I Can’t Even Smile Today? Nov20. Okay, three albums into the long discography and I am losing a little interest. I go in again with only one songs I know, and it is not as good as the previous only songs I knew. That is opener, Trip to the Brain. Hearing Voices has a pretty good riff. One thing I have noticed is Mike seems a little self-obsessed with the band title. So many songs reference 'suicidal' and it doesn't get any plainer than on Pledge Your Allegiance and Suicyco Mania. I know this is a bit of a hardcore thing, but one song an album would be plenty. The title track has its moments, but not really a song that needs to be near 7 minutes long. The punk sound I liked on debut is close to gone here. We are into more metal sounds, longer songs and solos. I didn't dislike this, but I am getting a little bored with the subject matter and there just wasn't any songs that really stood out. 3/5
Suicidal Tendencies 0 13 Nov20. So, Suicial Tendencies seem to always include a song where they 'promote' themselves. This time it is the opening track, Shake It Out, and I have to admit, it is pretty good. Less funk than previous album and back to more metal, but this just motors along and is a bit of fun to kickstart proceedings. Smash It! has some great, fast riffing, and cool drum fills. God Only Knows is a pretty good modern rock song. Cyco STyle did not do it for me. I can only take so many 'band chants'. ;) The music is tight though. Slam City starts with a down-tuned riff that would not sound out of place on an Alice In Chains album, then hits a pretty cool groove, though the vocals don't do a lot for me on this one. Not much else stood out and the album seemed the same tempo for most, but overall, the quality was pretty good. Had a pretty clean production sound too. 3/5
Suicidal Tendencies 0 Free Your Soul and Save My Mind Nov20. Once again going into a ST album with one song already thumbed. People probably hate it, but I love Pop Songs. Also stocked to see the legendary Brooks Wackerman played on this album. First play through and this album did not appeal to me as much as previous couple. They went full funk mode here, but some of it just doesn't seem to suit the harsh vocals. Also a bit ranty. I do not like the spoken word stuff. The whole track in the middle really jarred me out of the listening. Self Destruct has some good sounds, but most of the vocals are ordinary. The chorus os No More, No Less is okay. The bass on the title track is awesome, but parts of the songs are jarring. Start Your Brain is okay, with its punk intensity and Bouncing Souls-like vocals. The heavy funk works on Public Dissension. charlie Munroe was starting to grow on me. Home is a long and rather boring end to the album. Obviously, I would need more listens to become familiar with other songs, but there just is not enough on here to entice me to do that, despite having one of my favourite ST tracks. 2.5/5
Suicidal Tendencies 0 The Art of Rebellion Nov20. Hmmm, maybe if I had not listened to all previous albums, Can't Stop may have appealed to me more. As it is, I'm kind of a little over this material and some of the vocal styles I probably loved on earlier albums… and as the opening song, it goes way too long. I like the vocals even less on next song, Accept My Sacrifice. I gave this whole album several spins in the background whilst I was doing other things. The quirky guitars on Monopoly on Sorrow were pretty good. Parts of this songs actually sound like Red Hot Chili Peppers. We Call This Mutha Revenge and Gotta Kill Captain Stupid pound along at a decent pace with some solid riffing. Which Way to be Free is all Chili Peppers sounding and obviously indicating where these guys would go with Infectious Grooves material. Parts of Where's the Truth sound catchy and this might be my favourite track on here. Whilst there are some okay songs here, there is not a single song I considered for my 1992 H100. At this stage of the discography, my interest is waning. 2/5

I could definitely hear similarities to Veruca Salt, Magic Dirt and even to The Go-Go's, who may have been an influence as well.

Yet again I think that I am not going to love much of anything, but I am not going to outright hate anything either. I've now listened to the first two albums a couple of times and nothing has reached out and grabbed me and made me think, "Damn why have I not been listening to this for years"

Dry: 2.5/5
