Hotel ~ Moby
Hotel ~ Moby
2.0 out of 5 stars wouldn't recommend it, 4 Dec 2010
Critical reviews of albums are rarely representative of the actual quality of an album so I had high expectations of Hotel even after reading mixed reviews of it. However the album itself reflected what I'd previously read. I love Moby as both a songwriter and a producer but Hotel doesn't reflect his prowess in either, instead it is a compilation of really average songs that fall into the trap that electronic music can fall into, of sounding detached and slightly soulless. The Ambient disc that you can get with the album on the other hand is really good and makes you wonder why that wasn't the album and the songs the bonus disc.
Lateralus ~ Tool
Lateralus ~ Tool
When I bought Lateralus i had incredibly high expectations for I owned all the other Tool albums and loved every single one of them. Unlike 10,000 days, Undertow and Aenima Lateralus didn't grab me instantly and i had to listen to it once or twice before i really got into it. Lateralus is a very progressive and complex album so you can expect plenty of time signiature changes and lengthy songs. My favourite songs off the album are the epic Lateralus itself, the combine Parabol-Parabola song(s) and then probably the Grudge but every song on the album is at least very good if not amazing.
I would definatley recommend this album to anyone who is capable of appreciating it.

9/10
