You need a death metal enema. That should clear things up. If your ears aren't ringing afterwards, you weren't putting the volume loud enough.

Not the last tune I heard, but right now I've got some sort of Madonna Get Into The Groove/Who's That Girl mix going on in my head. It's pretty unnerving/awesome.

The infamous Dueling Banjos. Actually a misnomer since it's an acoustic guitar/banjo duel. I always heard it referenced but never listened through the entire thing until yesterday. Always a classic.

It's pretty damn good, but you might not like the man on man rape scene.

No. I was just giving fair warning that the film contains a scene which may be disturbing to some audiences. Actually, it should be disturbing to all audiences, that's the point. What I really meant was... HEY LOOK OVER THERE!

Reynolds w/bow is enough to warrant a rent.

Trouble, which I purchased a week or so ago, two weeks, is a Christian doom metal band. Worth listening to for the oddity alone.

i wasn't feeling it. i'm sure a few of the tracks could grow on me, but it was nothing like demon days where pretty much every track was golden.

Hang Cool Teddy Bear - Do these tracks have the magic of Steinman classics? Kind of. Look, Aerosmith is Steve Tyler, the Stones is Keith Richards, but Meat Loaf is not Jim Steinman.

At this point in the game, people know what Meat's strengths are and these songs are written to them. Maybe they don't have the tongue in cheek Broadway camp of the Steinman songs, but they're bombastic, modern without being cloying, and they're every bit Meat Loaf.

Eminem-The Recovery
I've been listening to it for a couple weeks now so I'm gonna give it an 8/10. I'm being generous because the shite that misses on the album misses HARD. Like the song with Lil Wayne? I hate him so fucking bad for that...but ultimately gets an 8 cos the songs on the album that hit the mark are REALLY fucking good. Some of his best stuff.

There's also no Slim Shady at all on the album, which would have knocked the score down a point for me, but I'll just count the Refill as the Shady part of the Recovery.

Em's gotta stop with the collabo's, though.

Explain the "No Slim Shady" to someone who's not an Eminem connoisseur.

There's three alter-egos he uses, and they all have different styles of rap. Slim Shady, Eminem, and Marshall Mathers. Eminem and Marshall are mostly the same, just when it's Marshall the material is a lot more personal, usually.

When it's Shady the material is crazy as all hell. He also uses different voices for Shady.

Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. Love it.

Also, heard TR's theme for Tetsuo The Bullet Man a while ago, and it's just plain awesome.

This brings new ironic meaning to the phrase, "I'm Slim Shady, the real Slim Shady, all you other Slim Shadies are just imitating, so won't the real Slim Shady please stand up?"

Janelle Monáe - The Archandroid

I'm giving it a 9.5/10. Not sure I can properly write out my thoughts about it, but this is a good article:

Billboard.com wrote:In fact, Monáe's album is so genre-less that to promote it this summer she will open up for R&B singer Erykah Badu in May and June, perform at Lilith Fair and tour in Europe and North America with alternative band Of Montreal.

Although catering to diverse audiences, Atlantic Records senior VP of marketing Eric Wong says reaching these different markets won't be difficult. "Janelle's style melds pop with a mash-up of soul, funk and rock that will translate across all audiences whether touring with Erykah Badu, Of Montreal or performing at Lilith Fair," he says, adding that Monáe has previously toured with No Doubt, Paramore and Raphael Saadiq. "Janelle proves that innovative music has no boundaries."

"The ArchAndroid" veers all over the place-ranging from "Wondaland," which describes the whimsical, artificial reality of the same title that Monáe has created for herself and her creative team; "Overtures," influenced by Walt Disney with "symphonies, strings and horns"; "Dance or Die," a Fela Kuti-inspired track featuring Saul Williams; and "Cold War," which Monáe says "reveals what the ArchAndroid looks like."

I listened to that thing on iTunes and it was too black for me.

Return to “The Stage.”
