Incubus – A Crow Left of the Murder

Balai: 97

2004 Vasario menesi buvo isleistas sis albumas. Ir. Sis albumas yra kolkas geriausias albumas koki man yra teke girdeti. Man patinka absoliuciai visos dainos. Kiekviena turi savo unikaluma. Visas albumas man visada pakelia nuotaika, visada primena kazka gero. Nors albumas nera eksperimentinis ar labai kazkuom orginalus, bet is man visvien yra tobuliausias albumas koki tik esu girdejes. Net negaliu pasakyti kas mane taip sitpriai paveike siame albume, bet paveike. Klausau ji jau virs trieju metu ir jis man ne trupucio neatsibodo. Jis kupinas graziu melogiju, garsu. Labai gerai padirbeta su visomis albumo dalimis. Visas dainas malonu grot gitara ir dainuot. Visos partijos labai puikiai sugrotos. Si Incubus era man patiko labiausiai. Nors albuma taip pamilau ne is karto, bet nuo tada kai pamilau tai nezinau ar ji paleisiu. 97 balai, nes vis delto jis nera visiskai tobulas. Bet labai to arti. Ir, galbut, isgirsiu kada nors albuma kuris pralenks si.

Score 97

On 2004 February this album was released. And. This album is the best album I’ve ever heard. I love absolutely all song on this record. Each has it’s own unique sound. The album always sets my mood up, reminds me of something nice. Even though this album isn’t experimental or very original, this is still the most perfect album to me. I can’t even tell what effected me that much in this album, but it’s effect is amazing. I’ve been listening to this album for about 3 years and I still find it so beautiful. It’s full of beautiful melodies, sounds. Very good work on all parts of the album. I enjoy playing and singing all of the songs. All the parts are perfectly played. This Incubus era is my favourite. Even though I didn’t fall in love with it at the first listen, but when I had, I don’t think I’ll let go of it. 97 because this album still isn’t perfect. But it’s very close to it. And maybe I’ll hear an album which will be even better than this one.

…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead – So Divided

Balai: 87

Perklausiau dar viena sios grupes darba. Albumas skambejo gerai. Kelios dainos tikrai mane pagavo. O siaip visas albumas skamba idomiai, geros melodijos ir dainu zodziai. Vokalas pradzioje atrode nelabai geras, bet po to pripratau ir skambejo gerai. Pastebejau, kad si grupe moka padaryti labai grazias pabaigas. So Divided man daug labiau patiko nei Source Codes & Tags, net sis albumas man idomesnis. Viena daina labai gerai sisimine ir tikrai viena mano megstamiausiu tapo Naked Sun. Tai va post-rock maisyta su indie ir alternative – geris. Bet kai kurios albumo vietos vis delto man nelabai patiko.

Score: 87

I got through another work of this band. The album sounded good. A few songs have really got me. Generally the whole album sounds interestin, good melodies and lyrics. The vocal didn’t seem appealing to me at the beginning, but later I pretty much fell in love with it. I’ve noticed that this band can really create beautiful endings. So Divided seemed more interesting to me than Source Codes & Tags. One song really got into my mind deep and now is one of my favourite ones it’s called Naked Sun. So, post-rock mixed with indie and alternative is nice. But, however, therewere some parts in the album I din’t like.

Nine Inch Nails – Ghosts

Balai: 86

Nors sis albumas dar neisejo, bet piratavimo pagalba sugebejau ji visa perklausyti ir galiu pasakyti, kad man jis patiko. Nera pats geriausias instrumentinis albumas, bet tikrai visai neblogas. Instrumentu ten netruksta, kaip ir eksperimentizmo. Pagrinde, albumas tikrai vertas klausyti daugiau nei karta. 86, nes po kiek laiko pasidare nuobodu klausyti. Galbut sis albumas kiek tai monotoniskas, bet 86 tai geras rezultatas.

Score: 86

Even though this album haven’t came out yet, by the help of pirating I have allready listened to all of it and I liked it. It isn’t the best instrumental album I’ve heard, but it’s pretty good. Instruments and experimentation is not a miss here. Generally the album is worth to listen to more than once. 86, because while getting into the album it got a bit boring. Maybe there is some monotony here, but 86 is a good score.

Lacuna Coil – Karmacode

Balai: 85

Trys albumai su balais mazejancia tvarka. Na, taip ir maniau, kad gotikinis metalas man gali patikti. Grazus moteriskas vokalas (neblogas ir vyriskas), grazios melodijos ir gitaros partijos. Isiminiau kelias dainas, bet labiausiai tame albume man patiko Closer. Truputis elektroniniu garsu labai gerai sutapo su siuo albumu. Bet. Po keliu dainu pastebejau sekanti monotoniskuma. Jis nesugadino visko labai stipriai, bet pasidare truputi neidomu klausyti. Bet albumas tikrai visai neblogas.

Score: 85

Three albums with descenting scores. Well I was pretty sure that I’ll like gothic metal. Beautiful female voice (male not bad aswell), beautiful melodies, great guitar riffs. Some songs got in my head, but I can put in front a song called Closer. Bits of electronic sounds have really changed the statse of this album to the better half. However. After a few songs I started hearing monotony. This hasn’t ruined everything so badly, but after a while it wasn’t very interesting to listen to this record. But the album overall is pretty good.

Beck – Sea Change

Balai: 92

Perklausiau Sea Change pries kelis menesiu ir, zinoma, klausiau dar keleta kartu. Albumas labai melancholiskas, kas man aptinka. Skamba liudna muzika, liudni, bet grazus zodziai. Daugiausia cia girdisi akustikos. Beck cia atsisake elektronikos ir ejo link akustiniu dainu, kurios buvo tikrai grazios. Isimintiniausios dainos tai Little One, Already Dead bei Paper Tiger, bet kitos taipogi patiko. Albume buvo vietu, kurios man nelabai patiko, bet jos labai nestipriai uzgoze sio albumo geruma.

Score: 92

I’ve heard Sea Change a few months ago and, of course, listened to it quite a few more times. This album is full of melancholy, which I like. The album is full of sad music, sad, but beautiful lyrics. Mostly I heard acoustic sounds. Beck has brought down electronic and got to acoustic songs, which were very nice. The most memorable songs: Little One, Already Dead and Paper Tiger, but other songs were good aswell. There were place in the album i didn’t find appealing, but those haven’t killed hte records goodness much.
