The Mighty Mocambos, "The Spell of Ra-Orkon"
I really like song titles that sound like a D&D adventure. Especially when they're instrumentals, as that means you're not being subjected to lyrics that sound like a D&D adventure.
Love Battery, "Easter"
Love Battery's Dayglo is one of the best albums from the grunge scene, a swirling psychedelic masterpiece that stood out at the time and only gets better with age. Before their masterpiece, many of the ideas were present in Between the Eyes, a record that featured many of the same wah-soaked moves that they would soon perfect. The bottom isn't quite as firm, so the record isn't quite as good, but it's still an excellent listen.
The Notorious B.I.G., "Another"
I know that everything from Biggie is revered at this point, but I just think that there are tracks on the second album that are kind of just there. I'm not inspired by a bunch of stuff on there, and greatly prefer the first record.
I don't listen to a lot of thrash. I mean, yeah, I listen to peak Metallica and Slayer, but not a lot other than that. But I like it in theory, so I occasionally just sample something that is well-regarded by thrash fans. So, Havok: this is good? But I don't find myself reaching for it. My thrash needs can apparently be fulfilled by a few old records. Although that Slayer howl later in this song is pretty good.
Cloud Nothings, "The Mess Is Permanent"
I'm tired, the Cloud Nothings are good, we're done here.
