I assume it boldly strode in.

Hey Kerr what albums from the countdown do you think will show up this week? I def think Yob and Uncle Acid have good shots...

non, je ned raggette rien (Drugs A. Money), Monday, 30 January 2012 14:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

uncle acid and maybe mastodon. those 2 have non-metal crossover potential i think.(did many metal thread regs vote? im guessing not enough) Dont think yob made it last time.

and liturgy!

lol (it just placed)

dont forget WITTR

Their #21 had only 17 votes. Looks like there weren't as many participants as on the metal poll. We could have totally taken over that poll. So much power wasted. Instead of Graveyard, YOB and Devil's Blood it'll be Adele, Pistol Annies and fucking Bon Iver. Perhaps Uncle Acid has a chance.

METAAAAALLLLLLLLL

the big poll got 120+ votes. Way more than us . Im guessing the top 10 albums will be getting a shitload with the 21-77 not so much,
but i told you lot all to vote. but metal ilxors just dont like to vote. just lurkers (who arent allowed in big poll afaik)

i dont think hammers of misfortune will place now. Bit weird our #1 didn't make it tbh. Though it seems the metal that did make it was stuff that crossed over to non metal regs. They didn't vote in our poll (5 ppl judging by the comments on the thread)but voted for liturgy,wittr,mastodon. If everyone pulled together we could've got a dozen albums in easy. We obviously could never agree enough on anything to get a top 10.

I did my part, but I did fail to nominate Bruce Lamont, which was stupid. He didn't exactly take over the metal poll though, so who am I kidding?!

For some reason I flipped out talking about the manifesto when really I should have been busy plotting for next year. If Bon Iver wins or is even in the top 3 I will lose a little bit of faith in the people of ILM. Not much, but a little.

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Well we're on the topic, Thanks for playing that Lamont last night. I don't enjoy Yakuza so I ignored his solo record, obviously to my detriment.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

I have to warn you -- there is some singing that you might hate, and it's in the first song, which is interminable. If you can make it past the first 3 min of that without turning it off, it's pretty good the rest of the way.

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

He does have a really versatile voice though.

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

that seems like a really good excuse to post this

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

Lol u guys! :) Kerr is otm in that most of the metal ranks is filled out by the hidden army of lurkers (I know you're out there, Magnus B!) who may or may not be allowed to vote in the big poll.

Also I voted for Pistol Annies; that was a really good record. It might sound like Dolly Parton's Greatest Hits but its soul lies somewhere between Cut and Nebraska...

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh yea also: I'm a bit skeptical that Bon Iver or Adele are going to show up today. I mean, anything's possible--and I don't remember if the #1 P4k album of the year has never not shown up--but I think Tuneyards and Yuck will probably be the worst of it. Adele had probably the biggest song of the year and she couldn't manage to make the tracks poll at all, so I wouldn't worry...

that 'never' should be 'ever' :/

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 14:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

I wish it sounded like Dolly! I couldn't get past the production to give a shit what they were saying.

Everyone's allowed to vote btw...we do ask for a username in the cause of transparency but I don't check that it corresponds to a registered user.

xp I still don't get that complaint! I think the whole old-timey sound gives the record a kind of edge, in ways that I am just not talented enough to delineate...

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

I didn't hear it as old-timey, which is probably on me not them. I dig old-timey.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

That "Cortez" youtube is pretty amazing.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

Isn't it? I think the lights add a lot. Also, Bruce: more loops and wordless noises pls.

Re: PA -- I love old timey, and I made the mistake of watching a Pistol Annies video instead of just listening to the song.

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm just going by what kjb and emil.y were saying (or at least what I thought they were saying) more than anything EZ...

I dont...get your complaint either?

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

iirc it was really glossy. Not to my liking, and that impression made me not like the song because...I am a feeble minded monkey?

La Lechera, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's old-timey instrumentation with a bright. unnatural sheen (to my ears, at least). That's what I meant by production; I would bet they would be much more my thing live where the mix and mastering wouldn't have that gloss.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

xpost, obv!

I think La Lechera and I both were bothered by the same thing

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

but we should probably take the conversation elsewhere and leave this for metal

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

well I spent most of my year being forced to listen to country music radio, so the productions sounds really understated to me.

Like I'm listening to "Beige" right now, and it still sounds to me like a dolled up version of one of the slower cuts on American Beauty

I mean, this is all subjective opinion--I mean, I never expected it to not have pop sheen, so I wasn't disappointed...

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

^oh sorry yeah another thread

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 15:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

Dolly should do a metal covers album.

Armand Schaubroeck Ratfucker, Thursday, 2 February 2012 16:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

haha yeah

Drugs A. Money, Thursday, 2 February 2012 16:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Finally got around to listening to Corrupted - wasn't really bothered about the 1st 2 tracks, but the 3rd track is awesome.

Wittled down the Top 125 to about 20 I might like, of course by the time I've listened to those it'll be 2013 and Kerr will be moaning at me for not voting in Metal Poll 2012.

4 months pass...

Could I be a pain in the arse and ask someone to c&p the results for this? Can't display all messages without serious browser weirdness.
