>Great reorder man. I usually cut a few songs to make it flow better but this is well thought out and works thanks
Np. It just didn't seem right to me to cut them out ya know? A lot of the songs I felt dragged on slightly too long anyway so I just thought "what the hell, chop em down and put them all in".

Doors and windows on
what do you guys think of the new Flaming Lips single?
think the album will be any good?
based on its position on the album and its tempo/intensity, using older albums as a reference, I believe The Castle will be better in the context of the album. The album will be good, but nothing fantastic. Mildly polarizing, but nothing too crazy to argue over.

>Metal is the natural evolution of classical music
As much as I love Joy Division's and New Order's versions of this song, I think this is the best version of Ceremony:
It's against my better judgement to do this and I'm probably gonna regret this.
But I see the debate about which is better all the time on here and I'm just curious what people think.
I have a preferred side but I won't say which I'm on. I'm remaining unbiased and not voting.
[OP] Thanks for being polite.
Here are the results so far.
I'm glad we can all agree that's this is a good album
Saturday night, why aren't you out seeing live music?
Was just gifted this LP. Thoughts on this album? And where should I go with Swans from here?
Very underrated Swans album, that often gets overshadowed from the following three Swans albums that were released after it. Swans is a cool band to listen to chronologically, so I guess start with Filth afterwards.
Has the tour tab always been called Sweven?
The word Sweven is another word for a dream or a vision

This album is an underrated classic and belongs to be apart of the hip-hop essentials.

Hailing from Croydon, Sudden Impact enjoyed a rough reputation as being one of the few directly racist RAC from Britain. Aside from releasing stickers featuring hooded Klansmen holding up a black victim's severed head with the tagline "Death to Nigger Scum," the band would publish nasty numbers like "White Slag" under the pseudonym The Croydon Criminals. After striking a deal with Rock-O-Rama Records, these blokes dished out an appropriately named, rough shod Oi! album "Storm." Their music was fittingly spirited if a pinch awkward due to the clunky lyrics.
The band would hit the studio again to release a sophomore album "Rock & Roll Rebels." Eddie Stampton published a scathing review in "The White Nationalist Skinhead Movement," lambasting everything from the album cover to the music itself. While the songwriting is still as cringeworthy as before with the occasional off-key delivery to boot, a skinhead band trying their hands at ballad-driven Hard Rock has that inimitable charm characteristic of passion-driven amateurs which lasts long after the first listen.
The music here isn't far off from the band's idol Ian Stuart who was no stranger to ballads himself. The release of "White Rider" set a precedent for many to emulate, but if the interviews with Sudden Impact are any indication, Hard Rock was a natural framework for the band. They grew up on a steady diet of AC/DC, Black Sabbath and Motörhead, so it's hardly a surprise they'd incorporate these ideas in the development of their sound. Other skinhead bands would later turn to that sound to a much greater degree than these gents had.
A raw, buzzing yet faintly hollow blues riffs define the heavier tracks here with the occasional guitar solo belted out for good measure. The album opens with a punky but tepid "See You All in Hell" with made distinct by its shouted refrain and sweet solo which comes roaring in towards the middle. "White Heat" and "Quest for Fire" are much bluesier than the preceding tracks, but much similar in all other respects. "Hail the Warriors" stands out as the album's highlight. Full of simple, but energetic riffs to keep your blood pumping and keyboards to deepen the impact, the song achieves everything it sets forth.
The first real ballad is "God of Thunder," which opens with a soft acoustic before our vocalist proudly hails Thor, hopeful he will return to earth to deliver Europe from the red menace. Kudos to whoever thought it keen to add some delay to the vocals. The song electrifies midway for the refrain before returning to the acoustics. Horribly off-key vocals hinder the impact of "'til Your Dying Day" which mourns Adolf Hitler's last moments; a forgettable and worthless track. Towards the B-side's end is "Fight to the Finish." Full of keyboards and acoustic riffs, the singer boasts of Nazi skinheads marching through the streets, optimistic they will one day win. The instrumental "Anthem" closes the album with its wailing guitars and gritty riffs. The track drags on but belts out a memorable solo here and there.
The rest of the album more or less veers between Hard Rock and Skinhead Oi!, but even with a few duff tunes, the music succeeds on its own merits and those curious about RAC's transition from Oi! to Hard Rock will find this listen rewarding.
Highlights: "Hail the Warriors," "God of Thunder," "Fight to the Finish" and "Anthem"

I used to be in conservatory for a performance degree, aimed to begin studying composition as I had begun composing at 16. I have not written or played music in now 4 years and I can't get started again.
I went from writing contrapuntal music to spectral music to a focus on electroacoustic and computer-assisted music.
I feel like my skills have deteriorated but I can't stay focused and hone them anymore. How do I get started again?
I'm about to delete the thread since I forgot the title, didn't expect someone to post so quickly. So yeah, just thought I should give an explanation before I do so.
Please join us in that thread, though. We really need the activity
