I'm in chennai for the weekend and while I'm here, I'm going to my oldschool days of music-listening. So,
Green Day,Madonna,Psapp,Audioslave,KoRn = OUT
Sepultura,Anthrax,Megadeth,Theatre of Tragedy,LedZep = IN
Feels good to get back to one's roots.Currently my playlist holds the following albums.
- Megadeth - Rust In Peace - 10/10
- Anthrax - The Greater of Two Evils - 8/10 *new*
- Sepultura - Dante XXI - 7/10 *new*
- Theatre of Tragedy - Storm - 5/10 [Single] *new*
- Led Zeppelin - IV - */*
I'll give a rough rating for each album. No need to rate Deth's best album till date, it automatically deserves a 10-er. The Anthrax one is a re-recording of good old stuff which deserves a solid 8 just for the replay value. Sepultura's offering is not another Chaos A.D, it is however a concept album and narrates Dante's "Divine Comedy". Filled with short 3 to 4 minute thrash-blasts it is also the best Sepultura album post-Max Cavalera. I thought Theatre of Tragedy was down,out and done with after Liv Kristine left the band to form Leaves' Eyes but they seemed to have found a replacement Nell Something and I have to say she is no Liv Kristine.ToT disappointed. Guys, go get Liv Back and give me another "Hamlet for a soulful vassel", the pop craze is over. The last one on the list, heh.. there's really nothing *I* can write about it.
