5-0 out of 5 stars dr.gonzo
tool is weird because it takes all the sounds I was alredy hearing in my head and is able to make it into a song. when I am coming down,(thanx hofman) that whole whine changing pitch is alredy in my head before I even herd this song. so Its getting a chance to reveb in my head. You dont just listine to it. there is an interaction there. it also amazes me how they get that sound. you can challange every band to make new material and you still wont be able to get that sound and it just wont happen. I also like when they try to put tool in a genre. tool should be its own classifacation until further justifacation on this revelation and plausible hesitation w/o retaliation or condemnation............tion

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best from Tool, but still leagues ahead of anyone else...
Tool are, of course, one of the greatest bands on the planet, and are therefore held to a higher standard than other ordinary 'rock groups'. I think its safe to say they've achieved cult status in the course of their career, and each new release is examined by the legions of Tool freaks like some mysterious artefact discovered on a distant planet. 10,000 days was highly anticipated (to put it mildly), and took its own sweet time getting here. Like many other Tool fans, I bought it immediately upon its release, and... was not disppointed. It doesn't cut as mercilessly as Lateralus, but after repeated listenings, I feel I am only beginning to penetrate its mysteries. A measure of its brilliance when most rock albums these days grow tired within a week or two. The band are incredible on this thing, particularly the guitarist, Adam Jones, who we can now consider as the leading master of the instrument. Maynard is Maynard, and does his thing like only he can. The songs are long, yes, but so what? A band this great needs room to explore and that's exactly what they do, taking us along for a wild ride in the process. Although it doesn't quite reach the heights of Lateralus (what does?) 10,000 Days is a fantastic album (in a really cool package) and no Tool fan will be disappointed. The only niggle I have is that there is a bit of filler on the album which shouldn't be there. Not after five years of navel-gazing and rumination (or were they actually working on their tans on the beaches of Majorca?). If there were two more great songs here instead of the noodling bits, this album would get 5 stars, no problemo. Let's just pray the next one comes a bit quicker... ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars But.....I Like It
In 25 words or less...interesting music by great musicians..they continue to break the mold....and challenge our ears...bravo MV...

3-0 out of 5 stars Amputate some songs...
If someone were to ask me the answer to today's Pink Floyd, my response might be The Mars Volta. With 2003's Deloused in the Comatorium, the galactic battlefield that is Omar A. Rodriguez-Lopez's guitar work ripped apart the common man while the saucy vocals of one Cedric Bixler Zavala put it all back together again. Their music was weird, trippy and, for the most part, frighteningly original.
4-0 out of 5 stars Humans as ornaments
This is the first disc I've heard by The Mars Volta (TMV) and I can understand why this could be a negative experience for some. Piercing dissonant guitar tones that could shatter glass, odd time signatures and weird changes during a song usually turn most people off. Adding creepy shrieking sax playing and falsetto vocals that can warp your eardrums and sound Chipmunkish at times, and you have a difficult listen indeed. For me, TMV sound like a combination of Faith No More, King Crimson, and Santana. All songs on this disc, less the beginning and final track, are intriguing and the simple groove of "Meccamputechture" is infectious. The production suffers at times from audible distortion and the drums are buried in the mix, but these are only minor issues to an otherwise solid release. Definitely makes me want to check out more of their discs. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars They Have Reached The Top
Mastodon may very well have become the pinnacle of all modern metal with their newest album "Blood Mountain." Now of course Mastodon has been ahead of the game quite some time. 2003's "Remission" was a crushing frenzy that showed the band's technical and innovative approach to song writing, while still hinting at greater things to come. And with 2004's "Leviathan," greater things did come. Not only was it a bold move made in the act of creating a concept record about Moby Dick, but Mastodon further expanded their technique, adding atmospheric and melodic elements to their sound in favor of creating something completely original and different from what they had done before. So how would they follow with their much anticipated third full length album "Blood Mountain?" As if they weren't already masterminds, this record further solidifies Mastodon as the premier innovators in today's metal world. From start to finish "Blood Mountain" is nothing short of a masterpiece, and if this is the kind of evolution and song writing we can expect Mastodon to expand upon in the future, I can only ask myself, "Where and what is next?"
5-0 out of 5 stars Mountainously brilliant
Mastodon's first album, Remission, was a gigantic shock to the system of modern heavy metal, combining ferocious grooves, head-spinning technicality, and fearsomely creative songwriting for the sort of truly singular sound a precious few bands in any genre can truly lay claim to.The followup, Leviathan, a musical interpretation of Melville's Moby Dick, packed more than enough dramatic weight to suit its title and subject matter, and saw the band branching out into more melodic and accessible territory without abandoning the complexity and pummelling heaviness that formed the base for their appeal.Now comes album number three (and number one on a major label after defecting from Relapse), Blood Mountain, marked once again by increasingly adventurous progressions in both musical and lyrical content, with a near-total abandonment of verse/chorus song structures and an epic fantasy/adventure lyrical concept running throughout.And once again, the band's skills have kept pace with their ambition, as Blood Mountain is quite possibly the most innovative, fascinating, and downright brilliant metal album of this decade, worth every second of the numerous listens it takes to fully absorb the experience.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting, but WOW!
Someone who has listened to the other Mastodon albums: Leviathan, Remission, and Lifesblood over and over and over, like me, thinks they know what to expect from Mastodon. Catchy and steel-hard riffs, growling poetic vocals. And since they switched from Relapse to Reprise, gaining a much bigger production budget, you'd think the acoustics would sound different, maybe a little less fuzzy.

This CD has been in my 1000-disk collection for a decade.
5-0 out of 5 stars Two Words......Ear Candy
Okay, to start off this review, I am NOT a kid. In the middle of August I was at the music store browsing for something new. Then I remembered my friend telling me about Tool and saying how great they were. So I decided to give them a listen and picked up AEnima. When I got home, I put the album into my cd player and pressed the play button. At first I felt many mixed emotions, like I thought the album was way too weird but being the person I am, gave the cd a second chance and boy was I glad I did! after about a third listen I started to realise how amazing AEnima really was. A materpiece that is perfect in everyway.

5-0 out of 5 stars 20th Flawless Anniversary Live Album
To write a review for any DT album is a very difficult task to me, because in my opinion Dream Theater is the best band I've ever heard, simply the best and therefore sometimes I feel I could not be very objective on my opinions because I really love this band.
5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a great Dream Theater live album!
Dream Theater is great in the studio. But their live albums all are difficult to take because James Labrie sings consistently flat on ALL of them, which is a very big disappointment. (Want an example - watch the concert videos on the second dic of the Score DVD). I have heard this is because the live albums are recorded toward the end of the tours. Indeed, I saw DT in 2003 on the second night of their tour with Queensryche and LaBrie's voice was top notch.
1-0 out of 5 stars Yet Another Live Album
What happened to Dream Theater? Why does the band feel the need to put out live material after every studio recording. There isn't that much new material to cover. Try waiting a few albums between live recordings. Not to mention the songs on Octavarium are pretty mediocre. Do we really need to pay for them twice? Of course if the gullible fans didn't buy every live album and DVD that was released DT wouldn't put them out. DT simply has become a cash cow taking advantage of it's loyal fans (myself included) who buy every little scrap they throw together.

4-0 out of 5 stars Now Officially the Best Metal Band in America
Mastodon's last album was an epic tale of man against whale. Leviathan was the story of Moby Dick told through heavy metal. Now they've returned with Blood Mountain, another epic tale, although this time nothing quite so literary. Lyrically, this is the story of a man's quest to get to the top of the mountain of the title. Along the way he encounters all sorts of creatures, such as a cysquatch (a one-eyed sasquatch), the birchmen, and the hunters of the sky (dragons). In the end, our hero ascends close to the peak, but does he accomplish his goal? It's tough to say, as the final song on the album, "Pendulous Skin," is an instrumental.
4-0 out of 5 stars My perspective...here it goes.
I am just going to lay it out flat..Leviathan was a HUGE success for Mastodon, one of the best metal albums I've heard in a very very long time, so it's hard for me not to compare Blood Mountain to that, but in order to get a real understanding of this album, that is the wrong thing to do! Before listening to Blood Mountain, clear your mind and ideas on what you think your going to expect, because this baby is a whole other cake. Honestly I don't think it lives up to Leviathan, that's a tough one to beat. BUT this album is totally different, when listening to this one I think wow, what were they smoking when they wrote this because man it is OUT THERE! How in the heck do they come up with this stuff.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the New Classics!!!
I had heard a lot of hype about these guys; everything from "they are the saviors of metal" to "the best metal album of the decade", but their previous work never clicked with me. Not that they were necessarily bad, or anything, I just didn't really see what all of the fuss was about. Then comes "Blood Mountain". Basically, this is a band that you really have to let sink in and pay attention to what they are doing, and when it hits you, well.....it's awesome!!! One thing these guys do so well is manage to combine seemingly disparate styles and influences into a seamless whole that plays like old-school stoner rock (Nebula, Queens of the Stone Age)fused with elements of other diverse genres. During the album, you are subjected to many musical touchstones...album opener "The Wolf is Loose" sounds like vintage Clutch. The spacey and somnambulent "Sleeping Giant" is reminiscent of Pink Floyd meets Alice in Chains. "Cappillarian Crest" recalls Rush and King Crimson,along with progressive elements of some of the more modern prog-rock bands. They are also prone to experimentation, such as the bizarre-sounding, uber-distorted vocals on "Circle of the Cysquatch" and the endlessly creative guitar effects on the album. Combined with the grinding, heavy and at times quite technical and acrobatic guitar, this album is just a thick, dense slab of meat. Flyin' the devil horns, baby!!! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Desception
I am a grea fan of rhapsody. The order of goodness of their cd would be this:
5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing.
This is the first review I've ever written on this site.I have been an avid viewer and customer of Amazon for quite a while, yet I have never felt a need to actually write a review for something.This CD changed that for me.It is simply brilliant.With Symphony of Enchanted Lands II, Rhapsody had somewhat changed their style.SoEL2 was very epic, very big, very mature sounding, yet it didn't have that fast paced, hard hitting, almost catchy-like quality of their previous releases (for the most part).Don't misunderstand me, SoEL2 is a brilliant album, one that I would pick over most other music any day.It was just... missing something.Well, good news folks, Triumph of Agony takes the best of SoEL2 and combines it with enough of their old energy to give us something incredible.Starting with eerie whispers, this album never left me bored or wanting to switch tracks.Song ten is enough for anyone to buy the album.That song is truly brilliant.If you like power metal, if you like a big, epic sound, if you like to be swept up in your music and truly feel a part of it, then this album is for you.While Rhapsody, now Rhapsody of Fire, is certainly not for everyone, if you have even an inkling of a liking for them, this is certainly one of their very strongest efforts to date.I certainly hope their future efforts are as strong as this one.Good job guys.

5-0 out of 5 stars "I hope it sucks you down" - Swamp Song
Buy this CD!You will enjoy it best on days that you are ready to tell the world to F*off.It won't matter who you're pissed at ... your parents, or your teacher, or your boss, or even your lover.You will have a feast of anger to swim and wallow in while listening to this must have CD.(Crawl away, and swamp song are my favorites for this)It's fun to listen to when you are young, pumped up, and ready to party.(Sober - I can't count how many bars and parties I rode/drove to and from in the early ninety with this cd in the car stereo playing this song - and bottom, intolerance and prison sex of course!)This CD also has songs that hit you differently depending on who you are, how you want to interpret them, and where you are at in your head when you're listening, songs that are kind of beautiful in their darkness, like undertow, and 4degrees.
3-0 out of 5 stars Why all the filler tracks?
First of all, I think "Undertow" itself is worthy of four stars but putting 59 silent filler tracks in the album was just irritating, so I give it three.
3-0 out of 5 stars This CD makes my head hurt.
This was a great CD back in the day when I was still drinking and using drugs. Now, even though it's familiar and definitely has its merits, I just can't find the excitement that I used to feel about it. Don't like this honest opinion? Get over it. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I'm torn and impressed at the same time
That's probably the best way I can explain how I feel about this album. They definitely kicked the door down with this one. I think very highly of this band, but I don't think I'm out of line when I say that Cristina's voice is almost non-existant. Real fans know what I'm talking about. Also, the "variety" is a little lacking, which worries me. Don't get me wrong, this album has the band's signature all over it, I just hope this Italian band doesn't start to feed "Hollywood's Hunger". I hope they realize that they don't need to. Anyway, I can't wait for their next album. I pray that I won't believe my ears again, just like with "Unleashed Memories" and "Comalies". Later.

4-0 out of 5 stars "Grief is the light"
Lacuna Coil successfully upholds the Goth-Rock tradition with this solid effort after their immensely successful "Comalies."Like "Comalies" the production value on "Karmacode" is exemplary, but "Comalies" is nowhere near as bass-heavy as "Karmacode."Even on the slower songs such as "Within Me" the chorus is carried by a commanding bass line.While I love the diversity of songcraft on "Comalies" I also enjoy the headbanging quality of many of the songs on "Karmacode."The emphasis is once again centered on those glorious female vocalizations and quality arrangements, but on no previous album do these guys sound more like a complete band with equal contributions from all than on "Karmacode."There is really only one song on this album that I would consider second-rate by comparison to the other tracks and that is "Closer" with a chorus that has a level of catchiness to it that borders on annoying.The closing song is an excellent cover of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" that had my complete attention and smiling the first time around.For all their commercial accessibility Lacuna Coil has maintained a Goth-Rock sensibility on "Karmacode" that is admirable and dare I say it...fun to hear.Thank you.

5-0 out of 5 stars BELLISSIMA!
I stumbled onto Lacuna Coil when I was watching music videos on TV, and by pure mistake I came upon a video of a live performance of "Our Truth."I then saw the music video.I watched both of them over and over like how a small child will watch an episode of Blues Clues 18 times a day(it was on Ondemand).Soon afterwards, I bought this album and was immediately greatly impressed, yet the sound still managed to grow on me.A couple weeks later I got Comalies and In a Reverie, and thoroughly enjoy them both.I've just ordered their first EP and Unleashed Memories as well.If you're new to Lacuna Coil, I suggest you make sure that Comalies is either the first or one of the first albums you buy.This is a truly great band with an entrancing eloquent sound.They have a very powerful, yet straightforward sound, relying on emotionally evoking riffs and progressions, as well as incorporating classical and ethnic instruments, rather than gaudy solos and overactive fretwork.Don't get me wrong - all the musicians are highly talented.Take it from me - an active bassist and guitarist... or just listen to the samples and see for yourself....Seriously, the only negativity about Lacuna Coil or the Karmacode album I've heard is from people who don't know what they're talking about, don't appreciate real music, and, quite frankly, can go play in traffic. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Fair Rating
I haven't offer reviews before, relying on other opinions to broaden my music horizons.I just couldn't let this one go by.This would get a half star if there was such a rating.No value whatsoever.Stick to Porcupine Tree, Afrocelt Sound System, Gentle Giant to name a few exploratory groups with talent.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
And I don't even like prog-rock that much. There is such a devine space created by these guys though that I'm compelled to listen... over, and over, and over... you get the idea. I've also listened to Amputechture and Frances the Mute and for myself personally De-Loused is the go to album of these guys - the others seem a tad to overbearing and overindulgent (even prog-rock is supposed to represent these two ideologies). Somehow the inspiration of their friend's coma experience and subsequent death helps elevate this piece of material above the other two in my opinion. On a purely technical level, these guys have chops, the engineering makes perfect use of the stereo range, and the mastering job is one of the best and most natural that I've heard in a long time.

5-0 out of 5 stars They could be the next Pink Floyd!
I bought FTM and loved it, and I knew then that I was in need of this fantastic album! A great suprise. The album tells a stroy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good solid set
Rock garden is an appropriate title for Ty's latest solo album.The singing and songwriting is par excellence and well Ty's playing, what more can be said?The melodies that we love and the thunderous guitaring make for a very pleasant follow-up to "safety" which has certainly had a fair number of runs through my cd changer.Here the songs are more upbeat and we even see Ty with a big grin on his mug on the cd booklet.Without getting into long drawn-out comparisons to King's X latest releases and why doesn't Ty sing more songs than Doug, etc etc...just get out and buy it because you probably aren't gonna hear it on radio.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfectly titled...
Rock Garden is perfectly titled.A great place to retreat to with headphones on... a place that really rocks.The guitar sounds on this are, to me, much more King's X-like.While I love The Jelly Jam work of Ty, the guitar nuances on Rock Garden are much stronger.There's some great guitar sounds, riffs, melodic lines, soloing, vocals, song-writing... to me it's got it all.I keep playing these cuts over and over.
5-0 out of 5 stars cause he's a guitar man
I love older King's X and was excited Ogre Tones returned to some of that sound. Gretchen is, to me their best album still. I really didn't like Moonflower lane and it's experimentation. I love Ty's work with the Jelly Jam and highly recommend those albums. Safety had to grow on me and I have to be in the mood for that slice of melancholy. Why do I say all this? Cause Ty finally let's loose on a solo album that I will always be in the mood for.

5-0 out of 5 stars OM II Really Rocks!!
I have been a die hard Ryche fan for 22 years and can be very critical about the music...This CD rocks..I admit at first listen it pales to the original OM, but give it a shot..it really does pack a punch....read the lyrics, follow along, it works....After seeing them perform it live it really is a must have..For all that love 80-90's metal should RUN out and get it...how many bands from that time have survived and not changed the undercurrent of the band.Geoff sounds awesome....the screaming ended after The Warning....but the voice is crisp and spot on!!! There are many tracks that Rock....I love "I'm American"so much power!!The biggest problem I have with the CD, is that it is toooooo short...I did not want it to end...It is like most Ryche cd'sone listen is not enough, you need to dig deep and be as smart as the band to really get it!!!! MindCRime I &II Rock!!!Ryche-n-Roll Forever!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best since Empire. Very Good Disc!
My expectations were pretty low when I bought Mindcrime 2. I barely listened to Q2K and skipped Tribe altogether. I figured Queensryche had lost their creativity and gone the way of some of my other favorite bands from the 80's/ 90's. But I purchased the CD in order to listen at least once so I wouldn't be totally in the dark when I caught their show this past week.
1-0 out of 5 stars not what I expected
Mindcrime is the best concept album out there. Part 1 that is. When that came out everyone I know was tring to figure it out. "No, he was already dead before Mary died he couldn't have killed her" "what about this guy?" "Maybe Nikki did kill her". I had it all figured out and then went to a Great White & Tesla concert and met Scott at that show. He confirmed it with me. He also said that as any fictional story it can be interpritated in many ways, and each person that listens to it can take something different from it. how true! Ok back to Mindcrime II. Can anyone follow this storyline? I can't. I get it Nikki is out of prison and hot on the trail of Dr. X. But is that it? Part 1 had so much going on and great caracter build up you felt like you knew them personally. The songs on II are bad. All of them. Tate vocals are not what they used to be and he needs to realise that and not try to perform like in the '80's. I like nothing about this album. Save your money for the next Guns & Roses CD at least it will be disappointing but expected. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Rammstein album to date
Forget about being mostly B-sides from Reise,Reise, which was awsome in its own right. "Rosenrot" takes Rammstein in a whole new direction and I certainly hope they stay down the road this ablum has started them. Now to be fair I am of the opinion that every Rammstein ablum has been better than its predecessor.Sehnsucht was topped by Mutter which was topped by Reise Reise which was topped by this album.So their next album might be better than "Rosenrot" but that would be asking a lot. Its hard to find a bad song on this album, okay maybe Stirb Nicht Vor Mir . And the great ones like ,Mann Gegen Mann, Wo Bist Du, and the title track are Rammsteins best songs yet. But the true standout on this album has to be Feuer und Wasser. Slow at first but when it gets going it is sheer brilliance. Move over Reise Reise, your B-sides just took center stage. With Rammstein it matters not whether you understand the lyrics or not, they are that good.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great overall, 2 exceptions..
My favorite track is right out of the gate with Benzin, gets the blood flowing.Title track is good also. All good stuff with the exception of 2, my opinion. Stirb Nicht Vor Mir (Don't Die Before I Do)should be tossed.Te Quiero Puta! the reviewer below thinks is a "wonder" (yeah, I'm sure wonderin'), and a "top track" ???? Ya gotta be kiddin...That track finds new lower levels in the basement depths of Stupid.Ughhh...F'ing awful!!Good thing the rest of this CD rocks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it could be
While I understand how these elements can work (metal guitars, thick drums, orchestral elements, operatic vocals, traditional instruments...) I'm not sure they're used to full effectiveness here. There are a few exceptions to this such as the track "The Siren" which not only gives each element its own space, but also has some geniune creativity. The big drawback to these guys is their obvious love of everything Hans Zimmer and Trevor Rabin among the other new-world orchestral/electronic/tribal drums/rock elements of film composers. The problem with this is that they don't really create any truely unique music other than perhaps their first go-arounds. I'd like to hear some more interesting ideas in the way of differing chord changes (something other than the boring as anything being touted as solid music in the nu-metal category) and please put and end to the overly used fifth chord finger runs by the keyboardist (this is perhaps the single most annoying element); there is much more dynamic and interesting "finger exercises" to do on the keyboard than just this. It is to bad that the band fired the lead female singer as she was the most unique part of their band and set them apart from other similar acts such as Epica, Within Temptation, After Forever... Personally I think it would be really interesting if someone like the truely stunning metal band Mastodon, who just can't seem to find their vocal quality yet (which is probably why they have so many "guest vocalists"), looked at Tarja to maybe do something on their next album (they do seem to be mellowing slightly in their vocals so this could be an advantagious direction). Couple that with say the orchestral stylings of Kronos Quartet... possibilities are endless. I guess what I'm saying is that there is only really one true talent in this act and she's been kicked out of the band. Of course the rest of the members are good musicians but Tarja needs to be placed with some true original musicians, not some Zimmer-with-heavier-guitars wannabes. A perfect example of this is "Ghost Love Scene" which is this amalgam between "The Neverending Story" by Limahl (from the movie in the 80's) without the super poppish elements that then flows into a three chord that repeats twice chorus Zimmer rip-off. There are dozens of far more musically interesting directions that this chorus could've gone off on that could've heightened the emotional content and listener's response. I will say this though, the middle orchestral section is quite good; filled with bombast and even some Orf inspired moments of overwhelming crunch. And although the song has these more insipid leanings, it is rather powerful, even with what is there.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
My husband first introduced me to Nightwish and I can't listen to this album enough. The lyrics, the orchestration and the vocals are stunning. I am usually a person who enjoys listening to acoustic music, like Keane, or Jennifer Knapp, but Nightwish gave me a reason to enjoy alternative, fantasy metal. Each song has a distinctive story to it, and each song is extremely well-written. This is a great album, and I'm looking forward to adding more Nightwish to my listening.
5-0 out of 5 stars nightwish runs circles around evanescence!
This is how symphonic metal should sound like! With the release of "Once", Nightwish have surpassed their last effort ("Century Child", which i thought would be pretty hard to beat) & have cemented their position as one of the worlds leading symphonic metal bands. For those of you who have written them off as being mere Evanescence copycats, stop living in a dream world and go out and buy this or any of their other albums right now! You won't regret your decision... ... Read more

Editorial Review

If one needed further proof of the contemporary revival/reassessment of the ambitiously overwrought sensibilities once so reviled in '70s rock, this aggressively mindbending second album by the Mars Volta offers it up in spades. Band mainstays Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala insist that labels like "prog" don't interest them, and that this is emphatically Read more

I am baffeled by the belief that this is music.I just don't get it.This is the WORST music and concert that I have ever ever ever ever heard.

5-0 out of 5 stars INSPIRING.
I had long since given up hope of ever hearing another modern Progressive Rock band to match those great bands of the 70's, when a friend let me hear this album, "Frances The Mute" on vinyl through a top end hi-fi rig. The instant the stylus touched the record, I new I was about to hear something new and full of surprises. I loved the music on first hearing and it takes a VERY special recording indeed for this to happen!

As you can see by my nickname I'm a huge STYX fan. But after reading FedUp's review on their album PIECES OF EIGHT I looked at his history and one the band's was rush I listended to this and absolutely loved it. My personal favorite "Working Man".

4-0 out of 5 stars A good overview but Rush Gold is BETTER!
Triple H: Before I review this killer Rush set, we have to address last one star reviewer! Shawn Michaels: You say you hate Canada yet you like Avril Lavigne who is A CANADIAN! Triple H: Oh yeah, she is a poseur and that makes Fed Up a hypocrite! Shawn Michaels: Back to this Rush set, it has most classics like 2112, Closer to the Heart, Fly By Night, Tom Sawyer and many more. Triple H: Also, Rush didn't need MTV to make it big, in fact MTV aired Rush clips in the early days constantly. Shawn Michaels: Then MTV abandoned Rush cos they got older and don't have bling bling or criminal records. If you are not down with Rush or DX, WE GOT TWO WORDS FOR YA(crowd yells "S*CK IT!")

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST RUSH COLLECTION
THIS WAS THE FIRST RUSH CD THAT I HAD BOUGHT AND WAS IMMEDIATELY BLOWN AWAY WITH THE GREATNESS OF THEIR MUSIC.I SUBSEQUENTLY GOT MOST OF THEIR ALBUMS TILL ROLL THE BONES.IF YOU LIKE GOOD CLASSIC ROCK MUSIC,THIS CD IS FOR YOU.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.IGNORE THE PREVIOUS REVIEWER WHO LIKES ONLY MTV INSPIRED TEEN POP [..]. ...

Editorial Review

There's not a big precedent for German bands succeeding in the United States, the '80s bombast-rock of the Scorpions notwithstanding. Rammstein, however, may be the macho men to get the job done, at least in a concert setting. Decidedly Teutonic and militant in sound and lyrics--they sing in German and their commanding semi-industrial metal is compelling--Rammstein garnered rock-radio airplay for the catchy sing-along "Du Hast," which translates here as "You Hate" and bears a striking musical resemblance to the Golden Earring tune "Twilight Zone."

1-0 out of 5 stars Kreator kills Rammstein.
Rammstein is nothing more than a s****y techno-nu-metal band from Germany (all nu-metal sucks).Its all formulaic nu-metal (the guitarist can't solo) filled with baudy German lyrics ("Buch Dich" means "bend over," for example), idiotic mumbling vocals, layered with some irritating techno beats.One of my [former] friends played "Du Hast" over and over again, driving me nuts.I got back at him when I played some Kreator (he couldn't stand it).
4-0 out of 5 stars Good stuff
I like this album, it's got plenty of heavy guitars and heavy drum beats to get you going. And Du hast does mean You hate, otherwise why would the english version say "You hate me"

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing
This along with mutter is my favorite rammstein CD.This release is about exactly what you would expect from the band and there is little experimentation, just full fledged rammstein.I love the keyboards and synthesizers as well, which are absent in some of rammsteins later albums.My favorite song on here and from rammstein is "Bueck Dich", which literally means bend down.The topics on here are pretty disturbing but what else would you expect from rammstein?My favorite song include: Sehnsucht, Engel, Du Hast, Buck Dich, Spiel Mit Mir, Eifersucht.Eifersucht (jealousy) kind of reminds me of Laichzeit from rammstein's previous album, the rythms are just so catchy its hard not to like.Rammstein also continues its trend of having 11 songs and one slow song on the album.In this case its Klavier (piano) and this song is still pretty good.Its a nice change and shows off tills ability to drasitcally change the pitch in his voice (the other songs he sings in such a low voice).Also, I love Engel, it starts out so eriley, kind of giving you the feeling that Heirate mich did from their last album.Overall I'd say this one of the best rammstein albums and a great one to start you collection on.The US version has some english song named "stripped" which really isnt that great but all the other songs are fantastic.This is classic rammstein, you wont be disappointed ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A Fun Rock Album And That's All It'll Be
For any of you who are trying to figure out what the lyrics are about and everything, just calm down. 2112 by Rush is a great rock album and thats all it'll be. the title track is a 21 minute rock epic that always touches my heart. but the other songs are as equally touching. the half ballad "tears" is great. "Something for nothing" is another classic too. I play drums and neil peart has always been a great influence. i'm still trying to figure out the middle section in the title track it's very tricky. Whenever i think of this album, i imagine being in a time hole of amazing melodies, geeks, and a very hungry Rush. So get this album and join the "rush".
5-0 out of 5 stars Part 1...The peak of the first era
In my eyes, Rush has multiple eras or phases. The first phase from the first album to All the World's A Stage (the 2112 tour), the 2nd being from Farewell to Kings to Moving Pictures/Exit...stage Left, number 3 being from Signals to Hold Your fire/A Show of hands, and number 4 from Presto to Test for Echo/Different Stages.
2-0 out of 5 stars Still trying to find aworking formula,2.5 stars
I think that 2112 is just way too hyped-up by the fans. This is often considered to be one of the band's best albums by many...how that is i have no idea. 2112 was just another stepping stone in the long evolution of Rush as far as i'm concerned, they would get much better then this in later albums. That said, it is a decent 70's hard-rock record, nothing more, nothing less. The side-1 title track is a multi-faceted epic about an individual in a futuristic socialist state. Musically, it has it's moments; -Overture-, -Temples of Syrinx- and -GrandFinally- are the best parts of this 20 minutes piece, showcasing some exellent musicianship from Alex, Geddy and Neil. However, it does bear blatant downfalls. Firstly are the horrendus Ayn Rand based lyrics that proceed to make the idea behind this song laughable and utterly absurd to any rational human being, as Rand was a complete nutcase. Secondly, it does not seem like one big song, rather it seems more like 7 small songs cut and pasted together.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but gets a bit much.
I really love Into Eternity's Dead Or Dreaming, and Buried Into Oblivion which was a great follow up with a thicker juicier production and even more great chorus's. Although IE have always been accused of overplaying and having silly chorus's because of mixing death metal with "power metal" i have always stuck by there side when it comes to listening objectively. Well on this album the music is great maybe a bit TO much, the changing of musicians as they have done can really effect a band and the outcome of there music, in this case its just not tight and doesnt seem as relaxed and well thought out as before, in other words to forced. Also the integration of the new screaming "Rob Halfordish" vocalist just does NOT fit at all with the rest of the chaos going on. The drummer who is great over does it quite a bit to where you really can't sit and just go along with any of the songs. Also the new chorus's as i said before are subpar and just sound like they were overkilled while trying to come up with new ideas. I do give a marginal 3 stars though for extreme musicianship and there is definately no lack of energy here. I just hope on the next album they sit back and relax a bit and concentrate on writing instead of overpowering the music with overplaying.

4-0 out of 5 stars More crazy singing
I think the distinct thing about this band is the singing.It's a mix of cookie monster and some crazy high-pitched harmonies.With the first few listens, the singing seems over the top at times.Once you get used to it (and stop laughing so you can hear it), these guys are really good.They don't sound like anyone else that I can think of at the moment.
5-0 out of 5 stars Burried in Oblivion played at 2x speed...
I agree in the most part with the other reviewers:bass is a little low on the recording, kickers not exactly deep enough.However, I disagree on the technical aspects.To me this is the most technical offer from Into Eternity yet.The first few listens through and the music seems a little less tight and random compared to BiO.A few more listens and you realize how technically amazing the drums and guitars are, but didn't notice it at first because everything is sooooo fast...
