brothers hands all over a thousand suns

I can't believe I actually made a post title combining 3 album titles. Awesomesauce!

Time for some musical review. I can't tell you how much I value my music collection. I currently have 4,374 songs = 26.95 GB in my iTunes and counting. So here are 3 albums that have been on repeat lately.

 Linkin Park- A Thousand Suns
Rating: A-
Favorites: When They Come For Me, Wretches And Kings, Iridescent

There's less screaming in Chester's part which is good coz I can finally hear his voice especially in The Messenger track. They still have Mike's wicked rhymes and Mr. Hahn's electric auto tune feel. They even added some ethnic feel and powerful messages on the entirety of their album. 

 Maroon 5- Hands All Over
Rating: B+
Favorites: Stutter, Never Gonna Leave This Bed, Hands All Over

From their previous albums up to now, there's one single element that still keeps me hooked. I have no idea what that is yet but it keeps my foot tapping all the time. But from their all too familiar rhythms, sometimes I feel like I've heard this before.

The Black Keys- Brothers
Rating: A-
Favorites: Tighten Up, Sinister Kid, Howlin' For You

After hearing about them in the Twilight's Eclipse soundtrack and then seeing their Tighten Up video, I just have to dig more on their music. I am impressed how different they are. They are old rock and blues blended into one.

One more thing, MTV asked and we, and by we, I meant the MCRmy, have answered. :) That's just how we roll.

Happy 10/10/10 everybody. All the OCD people of the world will be out in full force ocelebrating this glorious occasion. As for me, I will be spending it with my family and my music.

NO WAY!! i was JUST at Cebu a few weeks ago visiting the place for the month of September! We stayed at my dad's place at Iligan for the Sr. Miguel fiesta. We visited Bohol, and Camigan Island and a few other places. You can see some pictures when you scroll down my blog and a few older posts.

thanks for following! I'm glad another person has enjoyed reading my blog :)

also, the game was pretty important cause they're both tied for first-ish, but he explained to me that if they start losing in the end of the season they'll be on top :)

thanks for the comment about the bucketlist!! it took me literally ALL day and tons of research. I wanted to do more, like meet polar bears, ride a helicopter etc. but I had to minimize it :(

i'm digging maroon 5's latest album, however i think that they haven't seemed to evolve from their earlier work, just keep singing about the same stuff with the exact same sound. still good, anyway :)

and no, i don't speak anything but english, i think my dad didn't want my mum teaching us because he'd be left out or something :/

i was born in australia so i consider myself 100% aussie in that regard, just visited the philippines a couple times. my mum is actually half spanish so technically i'm only a quarter filippino, and yeah my dad is australian! x

Viki said...

No way! I'm listening to The Black Keys at this very moment! Such a good album.

As for my Lomos, the first one I ever bought was a Supersampler. Then Holga, then Diana. You should definitely take the plunge and buy one. They are so much fun!

Trixie & Fifi said...

I love Marroon 5 but I agree with you, they're style needs to be revamped because having awesome beats and catchy hooks won't be enough if you're up against Gaga, Rihanna etc

I thought the new LP album was okay, I really love the song "Blackout" though! Chester will always be my fave from that band! I haven't listened to the new Maroon 5 album yet, but I just recently (re)discovered The Black Keys and am really loving them! I am especially loving the song "The Only One"! I am such a sucker for a good falsetto, lol. Great post! :)
