Exactly what I was trying to say when I complained about bands self-titleing their first albums or calling their live albums "Destroying Wacken" etc. :P
At least self-titled albums are a tradition. Calling one album simply 13 after not recording an album in fucking ages is just unexciting.

No, self-titling the debut album is just lack of creativity. Also, I doubt that Black Sabbath '13' will be as good as the other album, that comes to my mind: 13, lol.

Blackwater Park did give them the recognition they needed and they celebrated their 20th anniversary with this record for a very good reason.
Yes, but the song "Deliverance" contains one of my favorite drum parts ever. Every time I listen to it, I think "how on earth can there exist people, that DON'T go crazy when they hear this?!"
Because people lack taste in music, that's why.

Yes, that may be a reason.

Actually, that sums me up.
Oh, okay. Well, hopefully it will sort itself out. If it doesn't, then you might seek medical treatment for it after all. :/
Medical treatment? Fuck that, I've tried that before and it's not helped me at all.

Well, there are different pharmaceuticals you could try.

Eh, you have to book TWO journeys just to get to Germany from here by train.
Well, that's what you get for living on an island. :P
Indeed, this is what I get for living in a craphole.

Yeah, just move to Germany. German isn't THAT hard to learn (despite what other people might say). :P

Yeah, just not in the world of Black Sabbath. Maybe they took a leaf out of Adele's book, though that should make their latest one... 191

Exactly, so I definitely didn't congratulate him. ;)

I think that the fact that they have been in business for 44 years and have had a sum total of five members. I mean, Maiden currently has six.
I know they had a drummer before Peart; who was the 5th, another guitarist, I assume?

Jeff Jones was a founding member, along with Alex Lifeson and John Rutsey. He was a bassist and their vocalist.

Wasn't there a show once where they had Freddy on a big screen (various tapes from their live shows) and the rest of the band live on stage? Or maybe I'm just mixing that up with some other band.
They did put that up at the Olympics, I believe. It's not the same, like War of the Worlds with the hologram of Richard Burton
Nah, I was thinking of some even that took place years ago. Actually, I'm pretty sure it was Queen.

Well, Freddie has been dead for over 20 years.

Also, I never was a fan of MJ. Especially in his later days he was just annoying.
The first album I ever purchased was Bad. I may not have agreed with some of the aspects of his personal life, but his singing was fantastic.
Well, he did have his moments. "Thriller" is awesome (not only because of the video) and "Billy Jean" is good as well.

I loved that, plus the whole film, Moonwalker. Something that is very him, when he was at the height of his popularity, circa Bad.

I've been on the edge about getting this album. I only listened to one song from it due to knowing Ice T is in this and he made an appearance on a Black Sabbath album.

Finsterforst are a really good band. It's like throwing Moonsorrow, Equilibrium and Finntroll in a blender and this becomes the outcome.

There's always something about bands going so long without an album that I don't like. Guns N' Roses are the perfect example but on the other hand, you get Angel Witch who last year released their first album in 26 fucking years and it turned out great. I don't know how much Angel Witch you know but considering they seem to have that one hit wonder syndrome, this song is magnificent.

And I thought it was hell in 2008. It didn't look so bad then. Now it's five years on and we're still in hell. I guess hell is eternal.

I was employed two years later. That job I had I was getting so much money that I couldn't even spend it all. Haha, where did that go? It's been downhill after it changed.

I think curious is the best way to describe my feelings about the new Sabbath album. It's like curiosity with a sprinkling of excitement on top. :P I'm going to listen to it and most likely enjoy it, but whether or not I come back to listen again, well, we'll just have to wait and see... :P

And I haven't listened to much Angel Witch, though I have heard of them. "Dead Sea Scrolls" is a solid tune, though, I agree.

I was employed two years later. That job I had I was getting so much money that I couldn't even spend it all. Haha, where did that go? It's been downhill after it changed.

I worked at the place I was at for around 3 1/2 years. The customer that I filled orders for (I did wholesale selection for a perishable food warehouse) went out of business -that was pretty much the beginning of the end for me there.

So, what kind of job did you have that had you raking in all that cash? :P

Then you better keep it up and never leave us again! >:D

I feel like sticking around, and if I can get the Hexalist straightened out then I'll be married to Newgrounds, or at least to the wi/ht forum. Scary thought. :P

Well, if you haven't listened to this album in the 90's, then this album might not be for you. I think most of the praise the album gets is from people who listened to this when they where teenagers... that's not to say that "Body Count" is a bad album, but when you listen to this, you really can hear that it was written and produced in the 90's, heh.

On the other hand, the lyrics actually make sense. Most critics say the lyrics are weak and that Ice-T would only sing "motherfucker this" and "motherfucker that". I always wondered if people who say stuff like that really listened to the whole album. How can anyone say 'The Winner Loses' or 'MommaâEUTMs Gotta Die Tonight' don't have serious lyrics?

Anyway, from todays point of view, I would rate "Body Count" 6 out of 10, the most. With a huge nostalgia bonus, I rate this album 8 out of 10. However, if you get a Body Count record, you might want to try out Born Dead instead. I always liked that one better.

This is so, so true. When Queen were just starting up, their drummer Roger Taylor was told to 'stop breaking Drumsticks' because they couldn't afford it. Now that's doing it tough.

I'm back home now. Snow is much less extreme than it is in London which I am thankful for as I already had to change plans to get back from London; I didn't need to have shit disrupted in Liverpool/Wirral to get back so thankfully it was a breeze there. I've already finished the recap for the London meet and while I wanted some like Coop and Gagsy to have been there, I still enjoyed myself a lot. It's a damn shame we probably won't see another meet until next year but at least we all enjoyed ourselves while it lasted.

Listening to:

Mike Oldfield - Platinum

Guns N' Roses are the perfect example but on the other hand, you get Angel Witch who last year released their first album in 26 fucking years and it turned out great. I don't know how much Angel Witch you know but considering they seem to have that one hit wonder syndrome, this song is magnificent.
I think curious is the best way to describe my feelings about the new Sabbath album. It's like curiosity with a sprinkling of excitement on top. :P I'm going to listen to it and most likely enjoy it, but whether or not I come back to listen again, well, we'll just have to wait and see... :P

And I haven't listened to much Angel Witch, though I have heard of them. "Dead Sea Scrolls" is a solid tune, though, I agree.

I take it you were at least familiar with the song Angel Witch beforehand, though.

So, what kind of job did you have that had you raking in all that cash? :P

I only worked at a school nearby. The pay was quite generous but it's hard to complain. Nothing can quite beat the hospital job, though. I was getting paid roughly a tenner an hour.

Then you better keep it up and never leave us again! >:D
I feel like sticking around, and if I can get the Hexalist straightened out then I'll be married to Newgrounds, or at least to the wi/ht forum. Scary thought. :P

And providing you keep to the one list, hopefully it'll stay fresher for you. For me I felt it was about time I let one of the stats lists go and make it a bit easier on myself.

Well, if you haven't listened to this album in the 90's, then this album might not be for you. I think most of the praise the album gets is from people who listened to this when they where teenagers... that's not to say that "Body Count" is a bad album, but when you listen to this, you really can hear that it was written and produced in the 90's, heh.

Ah yes, the nostalgia. I can't argue with that as I can be a complete nostalgiatard at times but whatever is nostalgic to someone from years back can be something that looks outdated to another.

Never lazy, just the beginning.
I see, this is just another topic we can not reach an agreement on.

Yeah, it's pretty much that. At least with the shitblade debate it was mandatory to end after the 2012 redesign.

Finsterforst are a really good band. It's like throwing Moonsorrow, Equilibrium and Finntroll in a blender and this becomes the outcome.
But you have to extract that finntroll-acoustic-album first.

You should know what aspect of Finntroll I'm talking about.

FUCK YOU SNOOOOOOOOW!

It's cleared up already. Although, my voice still needs to recover but that shouldn't be a problem. I just better make sure I avoid high pitched vocals for karaoke.
I would have done that - I'd even come up with a few tracks that I was hopefully going to try...

I had the chance to do FOUR that night. They were:

Deep Purple - Highway Star
Genesis - Land of Confusion
Faith No More - Epic
Ozzy Osbourne - Crazy Train

I would have thrown Metallica in the mix except the only song of theirs they had was Enter Sandman. Shame, really since on the Sunfly Karaoke website they list the actual good songs like One, Battery and Master of Puppets. Could you imagine me taking the whole place by storm with Master of Puppets?

Speaking of songs, here's myself on stage:

I'm now #4 on the top medal point users list. Because of a glitch unfortunately, but still a nice achievement.

I feel like Gagsy/Emmavolt as I already posted 8 times today.
