Yo, this be Reuben. Before we get into this, there's a couple of things I'll clarify, first, a sophomore album is a band's second album for any of you who might not know, and also, unless you already knew, that I'm a rock/metal boi primarily, and although I do listen to other thangs, those are…Read more Top 20 Sophomore Albums – Reuben

They say never judge a book by its cover -- but they said nothing about judging an album by its cover -- the fools hahahahahahahaha. Milo. ...Like Clockwork - Queens Of The Stone Age (2013) Anyone who knows me knows that this is right up my strasse. The acid-washed melancholy in this reimagining of a…Read more SAT500: Best Album Art Of All Time
SAT500: Best Drummer Of All Time
Ahhhh YESSSSSS. Our primal response to music is the beat -- and these stickmaestros are the best. Milo. Brad Wilk - Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave/Prophets of Rage As a drummer, this was a hard category to narrow down, so I had to go directly for my tippy-toes top, top drummers. For me, Brad Wilk mixes…Read more SAT500: Best Drummer Of All Time
Top 25 Chris Cornell Songs – Reuben & Milo
Yo, this be Reuben. I remember when I first found out he died. I was sat in school on a computer and saw some headlines about it on the internet and I genuinely didn't believe it was true. Of course, it wasn't some elaborate sick hoax as I was hoping it would be and he…Read more Top 25 Chris Cornell Songs – Reuben & Milo
*REBLOG* MMM: Cochise – Audioslave
Do check out this special excursionary MMM, as well as Steve’s Shark Movies Rock-O-Meter on Stuff And That!
Oioi, it’s Milo from Stuff And That back again for another MMM (or MILO’S MOSHPIT MUTINY AS IT WILL NOW BE KNOWN), which is literally what Steve does but a lil’ more sexually promiscuous. Of course, special thanks to Steve as well for suffering *this fool* gladly. Or reluctantly…
Today, I wanna take a look at Audioslave’s 2002 hard rock smasher Cochise, from their self-titled debut. Roll the clip!
Following the demise of both Rage Against The Machine AND Soundgarden, Audioslave was formed, mixing the sonic firepower of RATM and the vocal powerhousery of Chris Cornell – a supergroup indeed. Their first single, shown here, is a massive song, with Brad Wilk (my favourite drummer of all time) delivering on something unapologetically brash and big, with pounding toms and car-crash cymbals. This is coupled with Tom Morello’s huge riff, drawing on his time in Rage but also further into the…

RIP Chris Cornell
Yo, this be Reuben. I know me and Milo said we probably wouldn't write anything for ye for the time being, but I've gotta write something about this. Once an incredible singer and songwriter, now a legend. Chris Cornell was a huge part of grunge at the heart of Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog…Read more RIP Chris Cornell
I’m Also Doing a Top Ten Bands Redux – Reuben
Ayt? Yup, Milo did his oddly named Top Ten Bands Redux, so I thought I might as well do one myself. And NOT just cuz, cuz my opinions have changed. Now, prepare for a badly written, biased and gushing top ten bands -- again. 10. Primus I'm sorry, but I couldn't not mention Primus. They're…Read more I’m Also Doing a Top Ten Bands Redux – Reuben
Top Fifteen Heavy Songs – Reuben
This'll be an interesting list, because I've said Heavy Songs, which could be a lot of things. Basically, I like heavy music. That's pretty much the only music I listen to. So, regrettably there will be limited options for some of my favourite bands, like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Porcupine Tree, and The Mars Volta,…Read more Top Fifteen Heavy Songs – Reuben
