RED - Declaration

Well, I was never the biggest fan of alt/groove/nu/bro metal, with only a few tracks ever catching my fancy – but a genre I’ve also been rather uninterested in is extreme Christian metal. I mean, I’ll take some Stryper or the occasional power/neoclassical white metal bands (Joshua, Golden Resurrection etc.), but I hardly feel like I need spiritual guidance and catechesis.
 

Pearl Jam - Gigaton

It’s almost endearing how the masses will more usually be endeared towards BS, rather than brilliance… but I guess due to timing, circumstance and a strong single, Pearl Jam managed to explode into the public’s consciousness in the early 90s, as part of the grunge rage, which took the rock world by storm then only to implode shortly thereafter. Never managing to outdo their first few albums, the band’s only saved by their work ethic and heavy touring, as they’re one if not the only of their peers who are still alive and going on.
