I don't want anymore bass...guitars...ever. Someone recommended a Linkin' Park DVD-A disc "Reanimation" to me as a good listen. 20 tracks later as my ears are bleeding and my fillings have all come undone, I think I have all the bass I need, thank you. I couldn't turn it down low enough...good gawd. This was truly a aural assault... I doubt i will ever listen to this Disc again, it wasn't bad but i was not prepared for this. I'm only 32 but this was my clue that I'm not hip anymore. The only song I thought I knew was "In the End" which I was ready to enjoy and the re-animated that song to some crazy beat and scratch, rip and repeat, cut creator or whatever, I thought I was losing my mind or the disc was scratched or something.
They said it was an aggressive mix, no kidding...this band never let up. I couldn't tell track 1 from track 20. That was the most sonically damaging experience my ears have ever been through...I am scrambling to find some Carly Simon to get back my equilibrium. Was this the stuff they used to smoke Saddam out of hiding, man...this disc goes in the box along with John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins (who I both love) "Tenor Madness" disc that sounded like they were both in the jungle killing elephants. I only listened to a few tracks on that disc and realized it was well beyond me, I figured maybe I'm not old enough to appreciate this...I'll check back in 10 yrs maybe I'll get it then. With this Linkin Park, clealry I'm not young enough to appreciate this disc and I'm afraid I'll find some kid I don't like very much and give it to him. I swear to you it feels like my ears are dripping blood.
How the hell am I supposed to learn anything with all this yackin' going on.
