I tried reaching out to Ben Woods on his Youtube channel to tell him I'd awarded this album my Album of the Week, but the confused fellow has deleted my comment twice now. I don't want to be rude but... some people...
It's still a good album though, so I won't be churlish and replace it.
This might have been a hit for "The Top of The Pops Singers" if Queen hadn't done it first! I remember you used to get these knock off Top of the Pops albums where none on the songs were by the original artists as prizes at the funfair. To be fair, it's not a bad cover at all, but side by side with Queen, it lacks punch. I don't believe these albums were officially affiliated with the BBC's Top of The Pops.
Quite an odd plot to this song. I can't quite work out if the aliens want to get conquer us of just party. Nevertheless, it's a good sound and I give it bonus points for attempting to cover subject matter a little off the beaten track.
Love this band. I think they're Spanish despite song titles and singing in English. Haven't been able to find out too much about them at the moment except they've been around for about 35 years!. The singer for me is somewhere bewteen Tenpole Tudor, Lloyd Cole and ooh I dunno Steven Tyler perhaps? Smashing fast paced rock - bass and keyboards very Stanglersesque.
OK, this is going into a new shelf called Vile. Not because I want to collect filth like this, but because I want to gather as much of it as is possible in one place prior to purging it all from the database. Argue by all means if you think I'm wrong, but this sort of rubbish can't be helping anyone in a positive way, can it?
How the F%&* can you have Christian Grindcore? That is an oxymoron right there. Grindcore has got to be the most unholy of all the genres!
I am seriously considering purging DigMusic of any albums which contain grotesque and obscene song titles (such as this one) for the reason that I don't believe they are healthy.
I'm intending to write a blog post on the subject soon.
I'm not saying that anyone who listens to this kind of filth is evil, but I'm not sure I want to play any part in proliferating this kind of noise which seems to glorify violence, torture, rape, mayhem and death. I certainly don't want a future killer to find the track that inspired him (or her) on Digmusic. I'd be interested to know your thoughts on this.
