Eat Me, Drink Me – Marilyn Manson
- June 5th, 2007. If you can get past Manson’s pretentious attitude, and dreary aesthetic, then you will be presented with some of the more interesting sounding Alternative-Rock. Obviously this is a big ask. Manson’s music is meant for everyone so if you don’t think you can put up with Marilyn Manson the character then feel free to skip this album. For those that are patient enough to overlook the facade, you will not be sorry.
Worth Listening To:
Excellent Italian Greyhound – Shellac
- June 5th, 2007. While the jury might still be out on whether or not the music on Excellent Italian Greyhound is enjoyable to listen to, it does present some interesting ideas and concepts about music that fans of complicated sounds will enjoy. Spoken word lyrics, distorted guitars, and a set of drums are about the only parts of this album that seem conventional.
Epiphany – T-Pain
- June 5th, 2007. Much like the songs on this album, most listeners will find this album as a hit or miss. The production on this album is great and the actual music is fun to listen to and meant to be played at clubs and parties, but the lyrics are laughably bad for the majority of the album. The question listeners will have to ask themselves is: How ridiculous do the lyrics have to be before I stop listening? Unfortunately that is something each person will have to answer on their own.
