DisposableJustice's evolution of music from 1999-present

Hello everyone

I have seen quite a few members here list either their favorite albums of all time, genre, or focus on a certain band; I have enjoyed looking at these and have decided to try out my own, but it will be a little different:

I have decided to do a "evolution" of my hard rock/heavy metal music from when I really discovered it in 1999 when I was 13 to today. I will show you the albums that really got me to where I am today

Now some of the albums I will post I may not listen today because of various reasons but I include them because of their impact at the time, and I may comment on how I view them today in many cases will be a lot different.

I will start with 1999 and move forward, and in those years I will have both albums that were produced in that year as well as albums that are older.

I hope you enjoy this is my first crack at a larger project on here and I would love hear you thoughts and if you have/had similar interests.

First album in next post

(1999) The Matrix: Music from the Motion Picture

1999





"Rock is Dead" by Marilyn Manson – 3:11
"Spybreak! (Short One)" by Propellerheads – 4:00
"Bad Blood" by Ministry – 5:00
"Clubbed to Death (Kurayamino Mix)" by "Rob D" – 7:26
"Prime Audio Soup" by Meat Beat Manifesto – 6:17
"Leave You Far Behind" by Lunatic Calm – 3:13
"Mindfields" by The Prodigy – 5:40
"Dragula (Hot Rod Herman Remix)" by Rob Zombie – 4:37
"My Own Summer (Shove It)" by Deftones – 3:34
"Ultrasonic Sound" by Hive – 4:54
"Look to Your Orb for the Warning" by Monster Magnet – 4:42
"Du Hast" by Rammstein – 3:54
"Wake Up" by Rage Against the Machine – 6:04

So around 1999 I was coming off my R&B/hip hop phase of music simply because I enjoyed the beats rather than the lyrics; I saw the Matrix when it came out and while I enjoyed the movie, I remember liking the music in the background, the earliest part is when Neo is in the nightclub to meet someone to trade information, a remix of Rob Zombie's Dragula was playing and I loved it.

This album not only has some good rock on it but some passable techo mixes on it as well, but what drove me to buy the album (while visiting an uncle in Nashville, TN; in fact I think I begged him to buy it for me as I had already spent my vacation money)

Today I still go back to it and feel like how back in the day it felt like soundtracks for movies were for the most part thought out and well done; (In my list I have a few more soundtracks to add)It introduced me to MM, Rob Zombie, Deftones, and Rammstein and I credit it as the driving force into the wonderful world of rock and metal

Score today: 8/10

MY NAME IS KIDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD


KID ROCK

Ah yes, my first "dirty" album I brought, this is seen more as a hip-hop/rock album but I was hooked seeing the video for Bawitdaba. I remember I got in trouble for having this album around my former step siblings and was told by my former step mom that I would rot our brains. So I played the album anyway when she was not around (bitch) and I know my step bro enjoyed the profanity.

Today I don't follow KR anymore but looking back at this it is a pretty good album; of course there are the hits like Bawitdaba, Cowboy and Devil Without a Cause but the one song I remember is Black Chick, White Guy; it tells a story of a relationship between a white boy and a black girl who wind up fucking, fucking, some more fucking, and then it gets worse from there; at the time it was pretty graphic and the sound itself is pretty mellow.

Today's score: 6/10

Best Tracks

Bawitdaba: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J9ayHYClw8

Interesting idea, looking forward to the thread.

Kid Rock. Interesting. Never been a fan of his, but that album is certainly better than the crap he's put out the past 10-12 years.

I always thought Wake Up would make a great album closer on its own.

"Razorblades and Bandaides" 5:42


I can already see you sitting at your computers, looking blankly at the screen, asking youself: WHO THE FUCK ARE THESE GUYS????.....at least everyone expect maybe our friends from Canada where this band hails

I actually got into this band through a video game. An awesome one at that called Sled Storm



This was one of my favorite games when I had the first Playstation, but this game was special at the time, in that if you put the game in a CD player and set the track to 20-25 you got to listen to the soundtrack, it was fucking mind blowing at the time; So Econoline Crush had this song that grabbed my ears: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNBjlxmSIUw

That pushed me to get the Devil You Know, and I really enjoyed it; nothing heavy mind you just simple alt/industrial rock and maybe a bit borderline Christian rock. Most of the album is really good expect for a couple duds. I don't know if the band is still active according to wikipedia their last album was in 2008 but mentions tours in 2010, I'm wondering if anyone knows of this band and if you like 'em

Today's score: 7/10

Best tracks

Sparkle and Shine (album version): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0VcTPCByp0

Deeper: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1z6l3EA9cxk

Haha yeah. They had a song that was really huge here in like 2001 or 2002 or something that was played on the radio all the time and got huge rotation on Muchmusic. Then I saw them open for Three Days Grace and Seether in 2008 and was like "these guys are still around?"

Yep, I remember Econoline Crush... Sparkle and Shine, All That You Are and You Don't Know What it's Like were all pretty big late 90's/early 2000's hits here. I never cared much for the band, but they certainly weren't awful.

Econoline Crush was actually one of the first bands I ever saw live, opening for another Canadian rock band called the Tea Party in December 1995 at the Oshawa Civic Center. That was probably two years before this album came out. They had another album (or maybe just an EP) that was a little harder and less polished. I thought they were really good live but being one of my first concerts and only being fifteen years old at the time I was probably caught up in the moment. But this album broke them huge, in Canada anyway. They had some really good singles off this album (All That You Are, Sparkle and Shine) and anything else I ever heard by the band wasn't too bad. But I never bought their albums. I remember albums coming out after this but none made the impact that this one did. I think they broke-up in 2001 or 2002 but got back together a few years ago for a nostalgia tour and album.

But Canadian bands often have a really short shelf-life (one or two albums is typical) and Econoline Crush pretty much fell into that category.
