      Also we should catch up some time and chat about the good ol' days, don't be afraid to shoot me a message on Steam/Discord if you get a chance. I'll keep my eye open as well

      This weekend I jumped in for the final Splatfest after not playing for over 8 months. Other than that, I haven't been playing much I've been so busy.

      I would have enjoyed a more thorough conclusion instead of leaving those few things open-ended but it was clear that the game was made on a tight budget. I'm satisfied with what I got.

      I actually just got to the big Zero reveal. I'm finally at the portion of the game where twists start happening and even when I was expecting them I'm still shocked.

      I'll definitely need to give XO a go then, I've heard so much about the guy and I've never taken to his music

      There's definitely nothing as widely controversial, but in terms of polarisation -- Metropolis Pt II by Dream Theater is quite a notable example. I personally can't stand prog rock like this, Tool, Porcupine Tree and such, but it is very praised at the same time. Sounds like a lifeless guitar wankfest to me

      Yeah do. The Last One is my favourite track on the album, I think. It's so lengthy and drony, and you're deaf by the time it ends. Great stuff

      Ah yes, Elliott Smith, I gave Either/Or a listen, wasn't entirely impressed. I should go back to him though. Trout Mask Replica is pretty dividing yeah, so much so that people often get defensive when they don't like it, to the point where they attack those who do. It's a true phenomenon to me

      I'll have to give those a go. Also, Scatology is quite good. Not as good as Gold or Horse Rotovator, but it's worth a go

      So I joined RYM in early 2013, but I was insta-banned after a friend asked me to add his very edgy ironic industrial music to the site (the mods must have hotlisted anybody trying to add it). So I just made a new account a few weeks later and have been using that for nearly 3 years now. RYM is pretty good. Also, they are putting a video games rating section through a closed beta at the moment, which I am part of, so that's something to look forward to as well when it comes out.

      No they kind of stand out :p I don't make it apparent when I like pop music, I guess. I don't even like Of Montreal that much as a band, yet for some reason I find Hissing Fauna to be a masterpiece

      '77 Live is crazy, it's like White Light/White Heat meets Hawkwind

      I should also add that the main thing that attracted me to the Boredoms was Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart, that still today remains to be one of my all time favourite albums. If you haven't heard it, you're truly missing out my man
    8. Rezzo

      Okay, Boredoms are a difficult band to tackle, I started with Soul Discharge 99 which isn't really the typical place for people to begin listening to them. I'll try and describe the stuff I like, and you can decide where you think the best place is:

      Soul Discharge, and Soul Discharge '99 are basically their first proper album. These, Onanie Bomb Meets the Sex Pistols, and Pop Tatari are what people commonly call "early Boredoms". Early Boredoms music is really ****ing weird man, most of the songs have an unnoticeable structure (though it's there), Eye screams random words in broken English along with the other band members, and they generally destroy a studio for your enjoyment. It can be a very tough listen, but the music is incredibly fun. If you wanna get into them through this way, listen to Pop Tatari first

      Chocolate Synthesiser is also a thing but it's probably best not to start here, it's somewhere in between Early Boredoms and their Super Roots series.

      Later Boredoms is stuff like Super Roots 6 & 7, Super Ae, Vision Creation Newsun and Seadrum/House of Sun. It's not as playful and a lot more tribal and sometimes ambient, involves a lot of drumming and some crazy song structures. Vision Creation Newsun is the best place to start, but if you're having trouble with that, I guess I'd recommend Super Roots 7 even though I'm not a big fan. Super Ae is a very tough listen but it's one of their best albums

      As for stuff I missed out (Wow 2, 77 Boadrum, a whole bunch of Super Roots albums), they're not worth bothering with unless you become a big fan of the band. So, I suggest you listen to Pop Tatari or Super Ae, maybe Super Roots 7.

      Um, so you have basically listened to the Coil stuff I haven't :p horse Rotovator is my favourite Coil album. LSD is... it's okay but nothing about it really stands out hugely from it imo. Definitely give HR a listen. How are the albums you listed? only heard Ape and Musick to Play in the Dark from those

      Dummy is quite good but I don't even think it's Portishead's best album (the self titled and Third sound quite different), and I prefer MA as well.

      Yeah I've heard both of those. Coil are one of my favourite bands, they've released a lot of good stuff, from Horse Rotovator to Musick to Play in the Dark, Love's Secret Domain is pretty decent too. But yeah Ape of Naples is a very good album, nothing else I've heard quite sounds like it. I like Person Pitch much more than any AnCo album actually, and I find the the people calling it a bad copy of Pet Sounds and Entroducing to not give the album the justice it deserves, it's definitely one of the best relases of the 00's

      Recently I haven't been as explorative as I usually am, but I've been listening to a lot of David Bowie and The Smiths, who are both top notch regardless. Oh, I have been listening to Scott Walker too, he has two interesting phases of music (his older baroque singing phase and his more recent avant garde crazy phase), both are extremely good

      Yeah Gas is very interesting, his music sounds like the outside of a nightclub: all fuzzy, quiet and low-pitched, but his music is very detailed and quite relaxing to listen to. There's another musician called Gas on the label em:t who coincidentally makes similar music, he has a free album on Bandcamp called 0095.

      Hmm, I'm not sure, I've listened to Blue Lines a couple of times and I really like it, but I think I like Mezzanine just that little bit more. Protection is also quite interesting from what I have heard of it. Have you lsitened to Portishead or UNKLE, or any other trip-hop music?

      Oh and Untrue by Burial is another classic, have you heard it? What do you think of it?

      What's hilarious is that he was just namedropped in an episode of Rick and Morty that I was watching; but no, I've not really listened to him much, I was disappointed the only time I gave him a chance. Mind you, that was a while ago.

      Awesome! I have listened to a lot of music similar to what you have described recently, so much that I'd say it's pushed me away from rock music gradually. I think there are plenty of fantastic albums in this area that don't get much recognition, and it's a lot of fun trying to find them because there's not many places that openly publicise them in any way. Discogs tends to attract a lot of people who look for unlabeled electronic music albums and such, so it's a good place to start I suppose.

      A few of my favourites recently:

      Gas - Pop
      DeepChord Presents Echospace *– Liumin
      The KLF - Chill Out
      em:t 0094

      And if you like Warp Records, the Warp20 boxset is a good place to explore them.

      Oh, and I've been listening to Bjork and Massive Attack a lot, who are more popular names. they're both amazing

      Okay I'm back for a bit, who knows how long

      I can't be very bothered with MM to be honest, they're decent, but nothing outside of that album appeals to me

      Funnily enough I just listened to Bjork for the first time properly today, she's really good. If the other albums she's released match Homogenic in quality, then I have truly been missing out.

      That's cool, I've been offshooting massively and checking out a bunch of ambient/electronic musicians on independent labels in the UK. It's pretty fascinating how many good producers we had in this country in the 1990's, and the quality of these releases doesn't seem to be slowing down at all.

      GOD DAMN BURN HELL ****

      I beat two more dungeons in Wind Waker today.... Probably not going to play it for another few months because of the damn fetch quest

      You could buy the New 3DS, as well...

      TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE, IT'LL RUN OUT SOMETIME

      A bit. Persona master race. But seriously, I would get something like Monster Hunter 4 or sometihng. I heard that is amazing

      BUT MONEY ****. JOB, JOB, JOB!

      I don't really care, haven't played any

      What would lead to more personal enjoyment, though?

      SPLATOON HAD A ****ING DEMO. AND IT WAS ****ING AMAZING

      I had a unopened copy of MGS4. Think I got rid of it, though

      Anyway, you should totally get a Wii U because it is awesome, and I said so

      No

      Bros is definitely the highlight in my opinion, the transition between the two halves is so amazing

      Army of Me is the only Bjork song I actually know from the top of my head sonically. I'm sure I've heard others :|

      I'll get that one. But yeah I am a huge huuuggeeee fan od Age of Adz and Illinois. Also Carrie & Lowell. I need to listen to the rest of the stuff, especially the All The Delighted People EP... gosh that's a lot of good stuff

      Haha Amplifier Worship and Akuma No Uta are incredibly intense and loud. Boris have a lot of good albums though. The orange Heavy Rocks album should be a lot more calm to listen to, as well as Pink (make sure you grab a vinyl version of Pink, it's vastly different to the CD version which has a weird tracklisting and shortened tracks). It's similar to Queens of the Stone Age in some ways. Boris even have a shoegaze song!

      Yep it's definitely time for me to get to The Powers That B properly. I will do it when I have the time and personal space to (as nice as it is visiting family, it's very difficult to get away from them haha)

      It's incredibly layered -- much more layered than the majority of albums that exist, and even in hip hop there's not many albums that come to mind that are as lyrically strong as it, except the likes of Illmatic maybe. It's also so much more personal than the majority of hip hop albums, take the songs U and How Much a Dollar Cost, for example
