Cyril's Album a Day for February (#29 - Rush)
« on: February 01, 2020, 03:32:22 PM »
hey i'm gonna do an album-a-day thing this month.

gimme some albums and i'll listen to them

rules or something:
1. recommend me like 3 or so albums in order of recommendation
2. i'll pick the 1st album from everyone who recommends something & then if i run out of those will move onto 2nd albums & 3rd albums if needed
3. no repeat bands. no artists i've rated on RYM. i also reserve the right to reject an album if i've heard it but haven't rated it

this isn't a roulette or anything i'm just looking for recommendations :P
doesn't even have to be to my tastes, but i don't plan to go easy on any album i disliked either
i've crossposted this to a few places so if an album is on this list and you don't see it in this thread it's from somewhere else

1. *Ancients - Star Showers on the Euphrates
2. The Music - Strength In Numbers

Beast in Black is one of my favorite recent bands, but I'm going to take a guess here and say Cyril isn't going to like them.

Here's a few recommendations you may or may not like:

Eisley - I'm Only Dreaming (indie rock)
Architects - Lost Forever, Lost Together (metalcore)
Second Person - Come to Dust (trip-hop)
Bohren & der Club of Gore - Piano Nights (dark jazz)

I included 4 because I wanted to break the rules.

He probably won’t like them but, then again, I really shouldn’t like them but I can’t help it. They just put a smile on my face as the songs are so infectious and the singer is an amazing talent.

i have, sorry  :lol

don't feel obligated to have a third tbh it's very unlikely i'm going to get to the third-round picks & i don't plan to dig into the rest after this (maybe saved for another time if I do this again) so

*Ancients - Star Showers on the Euphrates

this is very... pleasant, to be sure. some post-rock and some ambient. i definitely prefer the ambient here, but i'm weird in that i just like that kind of soundscape specifically. the post-rock isn't bad here but it's kind of standard and not that memorable either. i also don't understand why the album is tracked the way it is - cassiopeia is clearly three separate songs but listed as one gargantuan 24 minute track for no good reason? ehh. it's fine. i enjoyed it as late night music

would i relisten? (yes/maybe/no) - maybe

Cool idea!

Low - Double Negative
Pangaea - Vespr
Gold - Why Aren’t You Laughing?

Actually let’s put Low as my #3 as I think you’d like Pangaea way more and also probably Gold

Out of those 3 honestly Pangaea is the one I like the least but it sounds like something you could like. I absolutely love that Low record but I'm not sure how you feel about atmospheric glitchy/trippy indie music to be honest, also didn't know Puppies hates it :corn and Gold is post-metal-Mew

Only add if you kind of like Katatonia, but... Grave Image by Deathwhite? They're like a heavier Katatonia and more interesting imo
