The new GWAR is not very good. I was hoping the new guitarist and bass player would breath new life into the band but it's just another album in the same style as the ones with Smoot, minus everything good that Smoot brought to the table. There's a few good tracks, a bunch of mediocre ones, and a couple that are flat out embarrassing.

Damn there's a lot of new music today. I'm gonna listen to the new Touche and maybe the new Subrosa tonight.
4/9 - The Mountain Goats

I can completely understand why many would probably feel that way. I didn't like Relapse alot when it first came out. After awhile it really grew on me and I really loved it, although I wouldn't go say I like it more than Last Sucker.

Did you like this that much? I've had a couple of listens to it, and it's decent, but it definitely won't come near by top 25.

I worried when Al said it was gonna be a little slower. I was hoping it wouldn't be another Filth Pig album. Even though the songs aren't great, I like that they used more samples than they had in awhile. Probably good there's no tour for this album.

Not any better but I do like the throwback of there being a TV 4 on here.

Edit of Edit:
Worst album since Animositisomina. Only 2 decent songs on that album, only 3 I like on this album. Going out during Relapse would have at least been going out on a high note. This is not a high note. I still love Ministry, after being surprised at how good Relapse was I had high expectations.

I would still suggest:

Hail To His Majesty (Peasents)
Side F/X Includes Mikey's Middle Finger (TV4) - Only if you liked the other TV tracks
Thanx But No Thanx
Surprisingly I like the new Ministry more than the last one. I like the 3 songs you listed. Punch in the Face reminds me of Dark Spoon and PermaWar sounds like it could be on Filth Pig. Fairly Unbalanced has an old school feel to it and for some reason I found myself singing along to Change of Luck.

Maybe my expectations were low but I really enjoyed this cd except for 2-3 songs. I'm only 3 listens in but some of these songs I'd really like to hear live someday...
3/3 - Hell Yeah
3/31 - Coal Chamber & Filter
5/16 - Clutch & Mastodon

The new MGMT album is fucking weird but awesome. I think I'll go pick up an actual copy right now from the local record store.

Got Pelican. Haven't listened yet, but I heard two tracks from it at MDF and I'm quite sure it'll fucking rock.

Can't seem to locate a source for SubRosa anywhere, and I'm starting to jones here. Anybody care to help a brotha out? (via PM, of course - no links )

Oh, and dat Cloudkicker is pretty fucking sweet. Might be some of his heaviest stuff yet...
8/1 SummersLaughter
8/10 Boris / Atlas Moth / SubRosa
9/8 Man or Astro-Man?

It's probably his most contrasting work yet, black hole heavy in parts, and feather light in others. I find it interesting how he doesn't listen to Mouth of the Architect or Neurosis (at least he hasn't specified in interviews), but some of the really heavy parts are very reminiscent of those bands. It's kind of interesting to think that he may have ended up making the same sort of music just inspired by different bands at a different time - but ended up at the same creative conclusion.
Yesterday don't mean SHIT.
