    new Dark Tranquillity is very good, probably their best album in 15 years

    I gotta look and see what other death metal albums Kurt Ballou has produced because that guitar tone is absolutely disgusting

    I don’t know why people get all bothered by him. Who cares what he or any other reviewer thinks?

    I think he has dabbled in some alt-right shit in the past, but he may have disowned it/apologized idk

    It is unfortunate to see someone like him who’s pretty out of touch with the genres he critiques heavily garner such a following. Weird to say but many young people go on YouTube to watch people like him and he’s, well, not good at it lol.

    I disagree. I think he is unique in the way he reviews albums and has a very eclectic taste. With that being said, do I always agree with his reviews? Hell no. Do I think he is losing steam after all these years? Yes, but I think that’s YouTube in general and especially music reviewers.

    I just found it amusing that Fuming Mouth was making fun of him

    Video reviews as a whole are kind of silly imo

    Dude's a goober, but he's got his niche. I give him a soft 5.

    I’m genuinely asking when I say what makes his way of reviewing unique? Eclectic taste sure but his criticisms, for me, are generally shallow or just not really on base for the ones I watched. Also, calling Fuming Mouth metalcore deserves being made fun of.

    You clearly don't like him so it's time to move on. I never said I adored him or take his word for gospel. I just don't find him as nauseating as others.

    King Midas In Reverse

    I was genuinely asking if you felt he did something unique. Haven’t watched him in some time now I’d just wish he’d listen to some of his constructive criticisms.

    If I wasn't dead inside I'd have laughed out loud at that. Metalcore... oof.

    To be fair, I don't think metalcore is a terrible descriptor for them going forward...especially because there are parts of the title track on the new EP that remind me of Darkest Hour with an HM-2 pedal underneath. Gives me real mid-2000s Gothenburg core vibes. I'd have to do a discography run of theirs, but it might be their most melodic track yet and makes a fuck ton of sense in the scope of things with the Nuclear Blast signing.
