so the new brains lp leaked. mca from the beasties produced and it sounds incredible. hr is way less aggro on the mic which is kind of disappointing, but this album is pretty much the best we could have hoped for imo.

GOOD GOD YES!!!!!! I wish there were more bands like Bad Brains. Its sad really. This album is crazyness. Bless that Beastie. Who was it? MCA? Good Grief. They havent been recorded like this since Rick okesec(sp?).

the dub echo on the vocals grew on me. the new hr vocal style is very creepy, which is cool in it's own way.

It would be cool to incorporate the squeak in his voice again but It seem that with God of Love , he got rid of it. HIs throat might not be able to pull that off anymore. Dude would get up there.

HR is crazy , back in 99 he spit in the face of a acquaintance of mine and then punched him in the face and continued the show.

don't sleep on the black dots lp! that's the one this new album reminds me of most. also, the youth are getting restless might be the best live punk album ever. check that one out too.

INF

this album reminds me off the black dots tight production and the edge of the quickness mixed with the experimental dub of God of Love.

Its a Bad Brains fan's dream come true.

so which should i dl RIGHT NOW....black dots? or their debut?

INF

black dots. Its kind of their debut but it wasnt released as the debut. GEt Black DOTS NOW. DO IT....DO IT

sounds like it. They never had replacements. HR just left for a while.

INF
06-06-2007, 09:37 PM
OH YEAH , I almost forgot. Get "I against I" after you get Black Dots and have listened to it.

06-06-2007, 09:38 PM
i herd i against i was their best.

INF
06-06-2007, 09:40 PM
Its my personal favorite. I have a line in a song that I wrote where I say "I and I survive just like a case full of Bad Brains". I dont think anybody will ever hear it though and go "oh yeah! Bad Brains!". At least they haven't so far.

Memory Man
06-06-2007, 10:33 PM
i against i has incredible songs, but it sounds a little van halen-ish production wise. those songs sound better on the live albums imo.

Memory Man

they actually did have replacements for a while, there was a different singer on rise, which is an ok album i guess, but i don't even think of it as bad brains.

i think every bad brains album is worth hearing, and most are essential.
if you can, track down the original pvc records version of rock for light. the caroline reissue is sped up a half step for no reason and remixed poorly.

INF
06-06-2007, 10:45 PM
I dont like Rock for light just for that reason. All those songs you can find on live shit though , you are right. They sound better.

Black Dots is the only punk/hardcore album i like as of now.

06-06-2007, 11:24 PM

that album was recorded live in the studio in one take, which is why there is chatter between songs.

INF

It was in a house. THe whole story is in the booklet. Ric okesek had the house all rigged and recorded that shit on a four track tape recorder. Right before Regulator you can hear one of their seeds talking about Ric's red tape recorder.

I fiend for that album sometimes.

i think it was don zientara, minor threat's producer. ric ocasek produced rock for light and god of love.

HR didn't sing on one record, and Mackie played drums on one or two.

no. Ric did black Dots. Its in the booklet. He took part in rock for light as well.

EDIT...okay you got me. I just googled that shit and I must have been thinking of when I read the rock for light booklet too. I remember reading about how the house was rigged though. On wiki it says they recorded in the basement but I remember the booklet saying that Dr know had to go upstairs and record within a closet. They were seperated throughout that house while recording and they did it at night time. They would record after they had finished a full day of dayjobs.

How are you gonna say HR didnt sing on one record. cmon now. Thats false. Who sung the recorded songs then???


EDIT - you are still wrong.

Rise.


Came out between Quickness and God Of Love.

INF
06-07-2007, 01:34 PM
I know about Rise. It has fractals on the cover and it sounds like crap. Its got the sound of the quickness a lil but not really.

I thought that you were saying that he didnt sing on one record as in not a single one they did. I gotcha now.

EDIT _ I WAS SORTA WRONG

Man they fucking ruined that album by speeding it up like that. This sounds great. Its flawless. Thanks MemoryMan.



EDIT _ I almost forgot that on the Beastie Anthology , there is a song that has riot squad sampled.

Memory Man

yeah, the remixed version was a travesty. they took out all the bass (the driving force of the band) and sped it up to make it sound like speed metal. it was '91 and they were probably trying to cash in on the metallica thing. the weirdest part was that it was remixed by ric ocasek and daryll jenifer, the bass player, which means he buried his own playing in the mix! he's a well known metal fanatic though, so i guess that explains it (sort of.) unfortunately the reissue had bonus tracks that aren't on anything else. here they are, eq'd to bring up the bass and slowed to the correct pitch.

you can find it if you do a blog search.

I like the music on the album but HR is fucking it up for me. I LOVE the production and the Bad Brains sound like they are bringing back some that old sound except.....HR. His vocals are completely out of place. Still, its a solid record in a weird way.

The Vinyl on this one looks crazy.

i actually agree with the criticisms of hr, but anyone who's followed these guys in recent years could've expected a lot worse. i consider myself lucky that this record sounds like the brains at all.
