  If you traveled back into the late 90's and early 00's, and asked me what favorite band was, I'd quickly answer Rage Against the Machine. Especially around 2002 up to around 2004, …

The Band
Faith No More was a band who I liked upon first hearing them in my senior year of high school, but after venturing deep into the thrash, death, and black metal niches in later years, I'd grow to hate …

Before I elaborate in this Quick Tip, keep in mind that the band's politics are NOT taken into account when rating the album, I only point out how childish they feel and how hypocritical they …

Pleasure to Kill
Continuing on my reviews for the Unholy Trinity of 1986, I come to my personal favorite of the trinity, which is Kreator's “Pleasure to Kill.” When I first heard this album six years …

The Band
Despite the band's goofy fashion tastes of the time, Living Colour cranked out some good and diverse music in their prime days. Dabbling into a variety of styles and meshing them properly with some solid …

Not merely the best distaff rock band of the genre's history, these girls epitomized the frustrated aggression and knowing camp of their garish era. Though their popularity was limited to superstardom …
posted a Quick Tip about Billy Idol. May 17, 2011
Idle
He still rocks it hard core. I saw him live in 2005 and man does Billy know how to put on a show. He embraces the songs that made him popular and melds them perfectly with his new tunes, which are just …

The Damned's fourth album cover
The Damned S/T aka The Black Album is two disc of pure entertainment. The story behind the album being two disc is an interesting one. Captain Sensible is a huge fan of Soft Machine Sixth and wanted an …

posted a Quick Tip about Rage Against the Machine: Rage Agains.... July 29, 2010
Rage Against the Machine cover
Easily one of my all-time favorite albums and the definitive album of the 1990s. RAtM's debut is a masterpiece of hard rock and rap with an added edge of leftist politics. This is the sound of the revolution. …
Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies, & the
"You eat God and excrete truth four hours later." (3) There's a toilet on the cover, a first for a Buddhist book, I reckon. Punk, monster movie making, and a decidedly raw version of dharma enliven this …

The Clash (U.K. Version)
The single greatest punk rock album of all time. When it comes right down to it nobody comes close to the raw political energy of The Clash!

Sleater-Kinney
It's easy, almost tautological,  to describe music as the interplay of melody and rhythm. So saying that a band is great because of their excellent combination of melody with rhythm, at first glance, …

Walk Among Us
Walk Among Us is the Misfits best album.  If you want to hear some hardcore horror punk then look no further than this disc.  Skip the "best of" or the two volume compilation collections …
