I've been listening to a bunch of video game OSTs. Been looking for high quality CD rips of Donkey Kong Country 2 for ages and somebody provided FLACs of it. ;D Very nostalgic; I knew right away what the next track would be 'cos my brother owned the cassette and I had my own copy of it.

The Japanese OST for the first game is tits, by the way. All these cool arranged versions; we got gypped. Japanese OST for the third was also mastered for OPTIMAL CD LISTENING, so the levels are all boosted and it sounds nice.

Aaaaand, Bandcamp is tits. Enjoying all this Aubrey Hodges music and also the remastered Killer Instinct tunes done by Graeme Norgate; now Robin Beanland needs to get on Bandcamp and release his tunes, heh. The remixes that Norgate did sound nicer than the versions that wound up on the Killer Cuts CD, which were produced by an outside studio. Only problem with his little soundtrack is there are audio glitches all over the freagin' place...
Oh yeah, and also:

I've been listening to a lot of the Silent Hill 1-3 OST's again lately. It's fantastic stuff. Oh, and this too-

[HQ] "I Want You" - Theme for Scanty and Kneesocks Henshin - PSG OST - Teddyloid
Damn. It's as if your life was geared to prevent you from enjoying it. And I'm sure it's not fun either.

So new My Bloody Valentine is out and I grabbed it late Saturday night before the server crash apparently, finally got around to listening and I really like it a lot. A lot of people hate the latter section because it's heavy on the beat and isn't as sing-songy but I think it's great so whatever.

Kinda wish I'd grabbed the 24 bit WAVs, though. Not that I can hear above 198kbps, but considering I paid so much for the CD, I shoulda gotten the most out of the included download by getting something higher than CD quality. Oh well.

Maybe I can email them and say I made a mistake and get a new DL code.

I got mine as soon as I could. I kicked myself over not grabbing Loveless in vinyl when it was reprinted, so I made sure not to make the same mistake with this one. Shame it's going to be like April when the thing arrives.

I'm really digging this, though. The first three are like the Loveless style of shoegaze, then it starts getting pretty intense towards the end, especially wonder 2. Both sides are pretty awesome.

This one here, guys:

Holocaust - alexander

I think it's a very intelligent work they did, specially speaking for John Mortimer, their frontman, vocalist AND guitarist.

Before Ministry were polemically-inclined Industrial Metal rabble-rousers, they were..... a synthy gothy New Wave band. This was a surprise.

Ministry - "Over The Shoulder"

Well hey, don't forget that The Land of Rape and Honey was pretty much devoid of metal. Best Ministry album, by the way.

I love early Ministry ("Over the Shoulder" there is my favorite chune off Twitch), but not so much With Sympathy. "Revenge" is a pretty good single but as a fan of synth pop I find the rest pretty uninteresting. I don't doubt Jourgensen when he says the album was largely studio-controlled, because the stuff he did before and right after is all much more interesting.

Too bad he has yet to put a high quality recording of his first (unreleased, 1982) single on any format. I dig this weird tune:

Ministry - Same Old Madness

Also, from perusing Wikipedia, I just learned that the video for "Over the Shoulder" was directed by Peter Christopherson. No wonder I like it so much. Dude was not only an amazing electronic musicmaker but a very good moozik video director as well. Love his kinetic "March of the Pigs" video, and this unreleased version is pretty unusual and also cool:

Nine Inch Nails - March Of The Pigs (Unreleased Version)

Looks like David Bowie finally came out of his nearly decade-long retirement with some cool new material! I really like this new video. It's also cool that he got the actress who many people (myself included) have always thought looks like David Bowie's female twin, Tilda Swinton, to be in the video.

Got my pre-order in for the new album. Apparently you can stream it on iTunes, but I think I'll wait.

I have kind of a mixed, wide-varied taste, but well, i'm showing you some:

Holocaust - in the dark places of the earth

This is one of my favorite songs. Besides, i'm quite experimental in my taste, too. I like new things sometimes; sometimes i like taking back some things from the past. In this case, this is a NWOBHM video.
