Angel of Salvation has been as good as expected. Galneryus at it's finest (I guess, kinda got turned onto him just last year so I still have quite a few more tracks of his to go through). Gotta listen to the album a few more times before I can name any favorite tracks...though I have a feeling picking faves will never be easy. ^_^;
Also been plowing through a bunch of Lapfox music. Got through about 20 Mayhem
songs. I enjoyed most of it to a degree, but I can't say I have too many that stood out like "Rescue" did, besides "The Sound"
, which was actually the first Lapfox/Vulpine song I listened to. I guess "Push Every Button", "I Am The Tower", and "He Pukes Based Sharks" were pretty nifty, but there's not much else to say about them. Maybe I'll have more to say once I've relistened to a bunch of them, so I can see which ones grow on me, but I'll save that for another day.
Now I'm going through Furries in a Blender
, which I guess is the more upbeat House style. I've only listened to 4 FIAB songs, but I've liked all of them so far. Then again, I love upbeat music, and House is quickly becoming my favorite electronic style. (though I don't listen to electronic in general enough anymore). "Slow Mover"
was pretty neat, supposedly more laidback for the style, but still fun to listen to. "Great Expectations (FIAB Remix)"
is the first Lapfox remix I listened to...I normally avoid remixes out of principle, but is it really a remix when they're all made by the same guy? =P Anyways, it's kinda long and I guess repetitive, but it made for great backround music while I was doing stuff. "Carbonate"
was particularly nice, Might even say it's my favorite of the bunch. A nice ecclectic mix of sounds that came together to make a joyous sound - reminds me of why I listen to electronic music in the first place. It also has a spacey theme going for it (duh). I can really dig that. And lastly we got "Not Candy"
, which has a sense of danger to it, like it's trying to be a castle or boss theme (which seems to fit its place in the album, The Violet Kingdom
). I like it a lot, gets the heart a pumpin'. Definitely gonna have to check out more FIAB songs later.
Oh, and on a more depressing note, I found "Easier to Run"
by Linkin Park on my iPod this morning. I didn't even know it was there, must've grabbed it by accident late at night or something. And holy crap is it relevent to my life, especially before I finally got a steady job in April. Every lyric just hits me where it hurts like a freakin' bullet. I mean, that's nothing new for an early-00's Punk rock song, but I feel like it especially hurt with this one, even more than "Adam's Song". It reminded me of how static my life had been, how all I wanted to do was run away from my problems, how bad memories keep haunting me over and over again, and it seemed for a while I just stopped doing things so I would stop getting more memories to torment me...and unlike Mayhem's "Rescue", it offered no hope and no advice, it just laid on the pain with no remorse. This is why I try not to listen to old Linkin Park songs...
