25. Jul. 2013, 6:38 von scottdoesntknowIf you couldn't tell from my listening history which includes over 10,000 Hole plays, I'm a really big fan of Courtney Love. Like, a huge fan. I find her lyrics compelling and vivid, she's incredibly smart, and most of all, she's thick-skinned enough to give all of her detractors a "fuck you" and continue to do her thing. She's braved a lot of shit and been through horrible things, and the fact that she's even alive is a monumental accomplishment. She's an underdog, and she's inspiring. I never get tired of her or anything she's done.
I saw her once at Bumbershoot in 2010 when she was billing herself as "Hole", despite being the only original member, and that was a big deal for me, but the vibe wasn't totally right— I don't like festivals typically, so her show at the Moore Theatre was much more intimate and, more importantly, everyone in the audience was there for the same reason.
She came out after her opening act…

1) Live Through This (1994)
Most Hole fans will agree that this is the band's quintessential album; their "magnum opus", if you will, and they're probably right. In terms of chronology, the record works as a bridge between the band's noise rock beginnings and their more polished pop years, and serves up some of the greatest rock tracks of the decade. Courtney Love's lyrics are clever and intelligent, and her rhythm guitar serves as a solid backdrop for Eric Erlandson's skillful guitar work.
It's a strange album in the sense that it's mournfully quiet and slow at times (tracks like "Doll Parts" and "Softer, Softest" being prime examples), and before you know it you're getting gleefully punched in the face by songs like "Gutless", or "She Walks Over Me"— both of which contain punk riffs that would have given The Germs a run for their money.

3. Mär. 2011, 23:38 von PerverzionBefore Spring-2011 finally reigns let’s take a nostalgic look back at some swell 2010 songs for one last time.
During the last year I’ve listened to over 250 albums. And God knows how many new songs overall. But still, most of even Pitchfork list is still an unheard mystery to me.
I guess this list may look conciderably weird. Consisted mostly of popular songs with some drops of country and noise... Yes, indeed it is weird. But I can’t help it – I tried pretty hard and this is what I came up with. Moreover, I feel really strong about this – if I die today, burn a CD with these songs with me in the crematory.
Sorry for writing all of this in English (or something that resembles English). All of these songs are in English. I stopped thinking about them in Ukrainian a while ago. Besides, my thoughts aren’t that deep, so my poor English vocabulary should cover it.

While I have always liked Tom Jones, I have never really given his post 1980 albums much thought. He has always attached himself to whatever musical movement was hip at the time, from dance, to R&B, to Hip-Hop, with mostly disastrous results. However, when I read that he was going to be recording with Ethan Johns for this album, I felt a glimmer of hope. Like the Joe Cocker album Johns produced a few years back, Praise & Blame is a rootsy affair, with religious undertones. In my view, it is easily the best Tom Jones album released in my lifetime.

19. Weezer - Hurley
Sometimes I don't know what to think about Weezer. One one hand they released some of the best power pop records of the 90s, and then on the other, they have turned themselves into the alternative version of Smash Mouth in more recent years. However, I still keep buying their new records hoping they will go back to what they do best. …

Całkiem subiektywna lista płytowa:
1. Anathema -
We're Here Because We're Here
Nowy album Anathemy był prawdopodobnie jednym z najbardziej oczekiwanych wydażeń tego roku. Wielu zapewnie rozczarował, ale wśród równie wielu ugruntował pozycję bandu. Album bez przebojów, ale niesamowicie równy, posiadający ten sczególny klimat z wcześniejszych płyt. Uzależniający! Z każdym kolejnym przesłuchaniem podoba się bardziej.
2. Mogwai - Special Moves
Klasyczny prog-rock... Jeśli ktoś lubi Mogwai, polubi i ten album. Utwory z ostatnich płyt zespołu brzmią lepiej na tym koncertowym wydawnictwie, niż na płytach studyjnych. Klimat, klimat. klimat....
3. Dezerter - Prawo do bycia Idiotą
