Wishborne Ash - Just Testing
review by lajos

http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=89423


1. 49 words.
2. tad inclined towards a focus on relations (the last good album; the awful next to come etc.)
3. of course, un-substantial at all.

I agree with the declaration of love here, but I don't think it's really a review.

This reviewer admits he's only heard the single Supermassive Blackhole and is judging the rest of the album (which I find very different to that song) on it:

MUSE — Black Holes And Revelations
Review by Tailscent

1 stars I've heard of people listening to something called "Muse" a long time ago, along with bands such as HOOBASTANK and NIGHTWISH...I knew nothing of music outside some progrock (Pink Floyd and IQ, mostly) and, gasp, Michael Jackson.

Nowadays I'm more up to date, and capable of handling louder and rougher music, to the point where I can see why people like Nightwish. Muse, however... *shudders*

Not too long after I first discovered them, the single "Supermassive Black Hole" was released and sampled on their website. That quick listen was more than enough to convince me that Muse definately isn't my thing AT ALL. Poppy mainstream rock? C'mon, this isn't proggy at all...sheesh. I'd sooner call EVANESCENCE a gothic metal band than consider Muse part of the prog scene, yet here they are on ProgArchives, while Evanescence and a load of other worthy prog bands are missing. I fail to understand.

No, I'm not even going to try Muse out. Not their latest album, not their earlier work. I'm happy enough not knowing, thanks.

Yours, Tailscent


Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

BIGELF — Closer to Doom (10 track version)
Review by sinkadotentree (john davie)
This is a good record,but there something about vocals that sound like the BEATLES,fronting a band that sounds like a BLACK SABBATH,DEEP PURPLE hybrid that just doesn't work for me.Some tracks like "crazy","closer to doom"and "theme one"do sound great though.On the first song "change",the vocalist sounds just like LENNY KRAVITZ,i swear if i didn't know it was BIGELF i would say i was listening to a LENNY KRAVITZ record! .On the plus side,i love the hammond organ,mellotron,and guitar riffs.I can see why this band would be a favourite of a lot of people,they have a hard edged sound with good vocals.Just doesn't do it for me.

GTR — GTR
Review by yendor35

3 stars So I saw Genesis in 1973 and was blown away. My good buddy had tickets for them at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C., and I had never heard any of their music. On the first song when Gabriel come onstage in his costume for "Watcher of the Skies", I knew this was a kick-ass band. So when GTR came around some many years later, and also many years after Hackett left Genesis, I was eager. I lost that CD when my home burned down and the only CD available when I went to replace it was the King Biscuit Flour Hour, which sucks compared to the studio album (plus "The Hunter" isn't on that Flour Hour CD). Anyway, I'll will always admire Steve Hackett for his contributions to Genesis, for it was his fantastic guitar work that was the basis of my love of their music.

 
nice story, but it tells nothing about the album, or even if he likes it or not.

ISIS — In The Absence Of Truth

Review by mtspaces6466 (Matt Tilson)

4 stars I'm new to the review game, so bear with me as I try this on for size. I've been listening to progressive music for 20+ years & this cd is as good as prog metal gets. I'm listening to it as I write this & I keep turning it up!! The songs blend into one another effortlessly. Although most songs are over 7 minutes long, I never wanted to skip any of them. PLAY IT LOUD!! ISIS should continue to make cds like this! Highly recommended!!

ISIS — In The Absence Of Truth

Review by opheliaphobia

4 stars It has its moments, but falls short of the classics panopticon or Oceanic. Its still a great album with classic moments, but misses to capture the grinding poetic intensity found numerously on their previous albums.

Still a great album, but didnt leave me breathless like Pan. and Ocean.

Enjoy JoJoTheDog

Says absolutely nothing about the album, only states a general dislike from the reviewer's perspective towards the band itself

Mandy's at it again:

http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=89838

Usual problem... it is next to incomprehensible at times, though the points he wants to make are more than valid (he does know his stuff, this is for sure). Even coming from the same linguistic background as he does, I find it very hard to understand, so you can imagine what other people can make of it.

PINK FLOYD — Wish You Were Here
Review by agent D081 (Marcin)

2 stars I've never been quite a big fan of Pink Floyd and still I find Gilmour's vocals irritating. A lot of delight from prog fans made me give this album more chances than it really deserves. A complete waste of time.

GENESIS — The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
Review by dferko

5 stars Genesis the lamb lies down on broadway is the most cretive album I have ever heard. from start to finish this album is pure beuty. The lyrics are perfect and the guitar and keyboard work is exellent. If I could only have one album in the world this would be it by far.

Pure genius and GENESIS at there best a must have

TOOL 10,000 Days progressive rock album and reviews Progressive Metal

TOOL — 10,000 Days
Review by kickz (Kickz)

1 stars i'll go straight to the point. my rating is 1. not that the sound suck but in my perception of progressive metal, this album doesn't even belong to the progressive metal genre, and so does TOOL. their not even technical nor melodic but, yes they have talent but their music range is out of bounds in this category. comparing it to progressive metal gods such as dream theater, symphonyx, opeth or even riverside... this album is too commercial to be here.

just my opinion. peace.

agree on the review being not a review, but is the rating valid?

never completely heard the album but its three stars....

GENESIS — Selling England By The Pound
Review by tarkuswright (Jim Carlton)
Well, a strange album… There’s not doubt it’s good, but I sincerely expected another masterpiece from Genesis, and THIS IS NOT. I feel a lack of something inexplicable, a lack of pure prog. This is the first Genesis’s work in which we can hear an approaching to a catchier pop. They left the alternative tune we liked so much, to do something different and I thought it's not so beautiful. And so I don’t like The Battle of Epping Forest and More Fool Me, they sound like another group’s songs, after the excellent Foxtrot; the only song that worth to be called Genesis’s are Dancing With The Moonlight Knight, Firth of Fifth and maybe I Know What I Like In Your Wardrobe, a simple pop song. It’s good the intro of Cinema Show, but the verses and choruses are not as good as catchy… THIS ALBUM IS THE GENESIS’S ONE I BOUGHT AND I NEVER HEARD COMPLETELY!!! I don’t feel to recommend it, but I know a lot of people like it……

Maybe, the reviewer means that he never heard the album completely at one sitting? Still, he mentions six out of eight songs from the album, which is pretty much almost the entire album. And I don't think there are any problems with argumentation.
