Since I'm currently only able to listen to music on my local machine while working due to lack of bandwidth, I have notice I have a shitload of albums from bands I don't really like. Most of these came from my younger brother. We have some musical taste overlaps (he's been to see Iron Maiden, Metallica, AC/DC, NOFX, and Alice Cooper with me), but then there are a lot of things which veer off wildly. He gave me a huge dump of mp3s from his music collection, and I have never really weeded them out.

What I thought I might do, for my personal amusement, and hopefully to generate some discussion, is go through these albums while I have the opportunity, and then express my opinions on them. Please be warned: some may not be very polite, and might be offensive to any sensitive souls out there. I'm not meaning to hurt anyone's feelings or attack them personally, it's just me being a dick with what might be some really shitty music. Then again, I might discover a few things I actually like!

First off is !Dos! by Green Day. I suppose it's there because it starts with a symbols (one of those upside down exclamation marks, which I could probably figure out how to do on my keyboard if I really wanted...)

What a start lol, I remember nobody liking that trilogy of Green Day albums back when they came out. Never heard them myself, last album I listened to them by them was 21st Century Breakdown which was pretty bad.

OK, !Dos! is a keeper. It doesn't have any instant classics, but the music is quite varied and not near as annoying as I thought it might be.

Next comes !Tre!:
It hasn't got off to a good start. This first track is complete shit!



Posted By: Vim Fuego
Date Posted: 15 May 2020 at 12:00am
Nah, !Tre! can fuck off! There's nothing there I will miss. I got to the third song and started skipping through the rest. Samey, overproduced pop-punk schlock!

And finally, !Uno!



Posted By: Vim Fuego
Date Posted: 15 May 2020 at 12:11am
Nah, fuck it. !Uno is going the same way, for the same reasons!

Right, what's next?

Oh, fuck me, more Green Day!Dead This is older shit from 1990, before they caught big-budget-rockstaritis...

OK, much better. A bit dirtier sounding. Even in the early days, these guys had the melodies and vocal harmonies they later got famous for. They just didn't have the songs. Keeping.

Interesting thread. I'm pretty sure I have a few mp3 albums in a similar boat. Mine will be promos I downloaded but never had time for though.

OK, that was worth 3 stars at least. Keeping.
Loading up two more SOAD demos so I don't have to come back to the music player quite so often. (I am technically supposed to be working...) I'm expecting these to be pretty good because the first one was.

I have no idea where my brother got these, but he's a bit of a completist. Someone somewhere has digitised 'em. And those were both well worth a listen.

This next one is SOAD again, and looks a bit... bootleggy? We certainly don't have it listed.

As far as bootlegs go, that was pretty fucking good. Decent sound quality, and Serj Tankian is an excellent sings - bootlegs often show up dodgy ones.

More fucking Green Day, because this damn album starts with a number. I don't remember ever listening to this in it's entirety.

That was a keeper, although 21 Guns is such a shit song.

OK, so I didn't find Black Label Society terribly exciting... Keeping it, but it's not something I'll listen to often.

Next comes a bit of Devin Townsend. This was surprising to get from my brother because I really didn't think he'd be in to such a thing. As with BLS, I have never listened to it properly.

The first two albums are their best imo, but Black Label Society is one of those bands where they don't really change their sound. It's the songwriting that makes their albums differ, so I don't know if you'd feel similar about those.

OK, Devin Townsend was alright, but not the sort of thing I'd listen to a lot. Gotta say I prefer Strapping Young Lad or the Ziltoid album.

I really don't much like KISS. I see them as a triumph of marketing over genuine substance. My brother loves them. The four solo albums were a bit of a gimmick, and I used to have his old copies on vinyl, but sold them. I have also heard that Ace's album was the best of the lot. I gotta say I love the song "New York Groove", but haven't really listened to the rest of this.


Posted By: Vim Fuego

Ace was pretty fucking decent! A good chunk of solid 70s rock! Gonna give it a 4.

Now, more Devin Townsend:




Posted By: Vim Fuego

Devin Townsend, fucking awesome! Loved that album!

Next up is Aerosmith. I got Pump way back in the day, and thought it was a bit meh. Maybe I needed to go right back to the start? I'll soon find out.

Now I think I get Aerosmith. The big budget overblown shit came later in their career. This was fucking good! First time I had heard the original version of Mama Kin.

I was never one for guitar heroes, so I don't know what I'll think about this:

OK, not near as wanky as I thought it might be! Keeping, and rated it 3.

Back to KISS. I have heard KISS fans say that Alive II is their best album, and one of the all-time great live albums. I am skeptical... I shall find out.

It's not a bad song, except for the silly baby talk.

Anyway, Kiss Alive III is a HUGE improvement on Alive II. The filler ratio has been reduced, and the production values are better. I'm keeping it. Alive! is the next album on the list to explore, but I'm all KISS'ed out for now. I might come back to it if I remember. Time for a completely different pile of poo:

I hate f'kin' Slipknot with a vengeance, so this might not last long...

Date Posted: 16 May 2020 at 3:43pm
OK, truly pathetic. I got as far as the sixth track, which is about five more than I initially would have thought. It's so feeble it's not even annoying. It inspires indifference. I was considering keeping it and writing a flaming review of it, since the album has none, but I can't even work up the motivation to do that. Deleting, and if I ever find the inspiration to write that review, I'll do it off Spotify.

Now, I love Alice Cooper, but I never got round to listening to much past Trash and a few of the 70s albums. My dear brother though, he collected everything. So giving this a first full listen.Smile

Good old Alice. Not vital or particularly impressive, but solid. A keeper.

The next one is a RATM bootleg... er, unauthorised recording, I mean.

I think they both suffer from KISS' career long inconsistency. I have even heard a KISS fan say you'll only get a couple of good songs per album. By 1993, they had released enough albums to find enough decent songs for a consistent live show. It would be cool to see live, but then you'd have to put up with the Kiss Army too.LOL

Anyway, the RATM bootleg wasn't a good idea. Why did I think I would want to listen to songs I don't like, played a bit out of tune (well, sung out of tune. The rest of the band are pretty fucking tight!), and badly recorded? Bye bye America's Most Wanted.

And here's another surprise: Queensryche. Yes, I have Operation: Mindcrime, and I have heard a couple of the early albums, and I have a greatest hits CD somewhere, but I have never given these guys much more of a listen than that. Let's see how this goes.



Posted By: Vim Fuego
Date Posted: 16 May 2020 at 6:45pm
That Queensryche album was really fucking good. 3.5.

Aaand... back to KISS (FFS...) I gotta say I haven't even HEARD of this album, let alone heard anything ON it:



Posted By: Vim Fuego

That was actually a pleasant surprise. Not a great album by any means, but a genuine heavy metal album, and not the usual pop rock crap. I won't listen to it often, but it can stay.

I have heard bits and pieces from this, but never sat through the whole thing:

Now, I'm curious. I've never heard it, but if it's anything like Creatures of the Night (as in Kiss making a metal album), I'd probably enjoy it.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and sorry about the Slipknot picture. I gave it some better quality cover art, not that it'll make it a better album. LOL

He he I think he is cute. On topic I love this EP. Especially Bad Horsie and of course the amazing Tender Surrender...the latter is probably my favorite Steve Vai song. Try watching some of the live videos of that song on Youtube...crazy shit, but still very melodic....and of course Vai has time to run his fingers through his his, lick his fingers, and play wih his right han on the fretboard instead of his left hand. The man is a phenomenon.

Animalize is listenable, decent, but it's no Creatures of the Night, which IMO is one of the band's best works.

Yeah, I don't like Blythe's vocals either, also seems like a douchebag from what I've read. Makes Lars look like a saint regarding priacy. Granted, I have mixed opinions on piracy, but regardless there's better ways to express it. I think Chris Adler is a great drummer though, wish he stuck with Megadeth, especially considering he's out of LoG now.

I could start a project like this - but for physical CDs. A few years ago I bought someone's whole collection on ebay. Sold the doubles and made most of what I paid for them back and for what I kept I paid just £0.18 per album. 

There were a few gems in that lot. Like Agalloch's The Mantle, many Rage albums, Anathema's death-doom stuff, the first four Empyrium albums and some other stuff right up my alley.

There was also a lot of stuff from bands I wouldn't normally have checked out. Some stuff I thought was okay but never listened to again and some stuff I didn't even like, but still own. There's also a couple of live albums from bands I like but never even listened to. 

I should really go through all of these again as well as a number of small job lots I bought (I had a thing about blind buying ebay job lots of CDs at one point, especially black metal ones).

I made a cull of my physical collection 3 or 4 years back. I sold some vinyl I wish I hadn't now.Unhappy Got rid of some really shit CDs though.

Anyway, that Die Toten Hosen album wasn't that exciting, but it can stay.

Next is Alice Cooper again. I don't recognise any of the song titles here. And this is a fucking terrible album cover!

Musically, that Alice Cooper album is excellent. Unfortunately, it seems like Alice was trying too hard to be weird with the lyrics. Some of those songs are just stupid.

OK, Zappa again, but this time it's Dweezil playing Frank. I actually discovered Dweezil Zappa before I even knew who Frank Zappa was, way back when I was a teenager. I still like his My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama album. And I do intend to add him here one day. I just need to find the time.

I don't know what eras the songs came from. It's all rather mind-expanding!

And the Zappa Plays Zappa is great too. I didn't realise it was a live album. I knew Zappa the Younger is quite an accomplished musician in his own right, but not quite HOW accomplished!

Next is some NIN. I've never properly been past The Downward Spiral and Pretty Hate Machine.

Frank is great! I have tons of his stuff in my collection. Mid 70's is his best era for me. Assuming they'd be something on there from then.


I don't know what eras the songs came from. It's all rather mind-expanding!

And the Zappa Plays Zappa is great too. I didn't realise it was a live album. I knew Zappa the Younger is quite an accomplished musician in his own right, but not quite HOW accomplished!


Just had a check of the track listing. It's mainly 70's featuring his more commercial songs but great stuff nevertheless.

I have a live Zappa Plays Zappa DVD, it's awesome!

That’s an okay album I reckon. Not as good as the preceding album, The Fragile. You got that?

I'm not sure. I'll have to wait til I get to the F section.Wink Anyway, With Teeth is actually pretty good. It's staying.

Back to these masked morons (pre-conceived ideas? Me? Never!LOL). Might not last long...

That was quick, even for me. Second song and I'd had enough.

Time for some more Die Toten Hosen I haven't listened to:

That wasn't the most gripping of albums, but it can stay.

I don't know how this will go, because I don't really like unplugged albums much, but there's a couple of decent looking song titles here.

Gonna keep. Could be a lot worse, and there's some good versions there.

And of course, also under U, KISS Unmasked!

Mostly boring, but I'll keep.

A bit more Ozzy time:

OK, that's also not terribly exciting, but it can stay. I need to listen to some good music I actually know and like so I can concentrate on work, so this is on hold for the next few hours.Smile

Here's one I reckon I'll enjoy. I have never listened to this right through:

That's a lot of Bon Scott era AC/DC! Well worth it.

This is an oddity I hadn't considered in full before:

Pleasant and inoffensive. Will keep, but won't listen to it much.

This might not last long. It's Lamb of God before they were Lamb of God.

Since I'm in a Nirvana mood, here's one I forgot about:

Glad you liked Along Came a Spider.  I went on a huge Alice Cooper binge when I first started using forums.  I got through everything he had done up to that point, and Along ame a Spider was a pretty cool one.
