Song: Angel of Death
Artist: Slayer
Album: Reign in Blood
Rating: 10/10
Comment: I thought of knocking it down in the ratings as i've listened to it so often that it's fairly repetative but why punish the song for my own actions? After all, it's got an excellent riff, stereotypical whacky Slayer solos, full-on lyrics and, as Lombardo always manages, awesome drumming.

Song:Numb (I beleive the title of the song is Numb)
Artist: Ben Folds Five
Album: ?
Rating: 10/10
Comment: This is a beautiful song on many different levels. The events that take place in the song almost hit really close to home as a decision like that was very close to being made in my own personal life, during perhaps the hardest point in my life. Those who understand what the song is about will know what I'm speaking of. Glad I didn't go that route, but the song is masterfully crafted in telling a story, and the music is beautiful. It is a very underrated, and a great song in the history of all music.

Song: Wonderwall
Artist: Oasis
Album:I kinda sorta forgot...
Rating: 9.5/10
Comment: Another song that really hits very close to home. It is very well put together, and as the previous song, it tells a story. A story of love that reminded me in almost countless ways of my ex (current at the time) girlfriend, and our relationship as a whole. This is good old school Oasis, a band that IMO could have been the Rolling Stones of this generation, but it didn't quite work out that way.

Note: See people, I like things other than rap and hip hop!

Uh, that said...

Song: Neighborhood Superstar
Artist: The Hot Boyz
Album: Block Burner
Rating: 9/10
Comment: This is from when Cash Money records out of New Orleans first started producing albums for nationwide sale. The song features a 14 year old talented Lil Wayne, B.G., and Juvenile, with the incomparable beats by Mannie Fresh. This is the best of the best with Ca$h Money, this was before anyone outside of the N.O. had even heard of them, much less a relatively obscure song that was different from others on the album. It's extremely catchy, has an absolutly great bass line, and Lil Wayne's verse sets it off. Not to mention, this is one of my theme songs, and if you don't know what a Neigborhood Superstar is.... ask your neighbor :lol:

Album: Transformers: The Movie OST
Rating: 10/10
Comment: Just a really good metal song to get going to. Of course, it's better if you hear it in the background while watching the movie. :wink:

Song: Moonlight Shadow (a cover)
Artist: KOKIA
Album: 人間ってそんなものね
Rating: 9/10
Comment: I'm fond of this song in almost every cover I've heard of it (The Shadows excluded). I was snooping around on the net about possible covers I hadn't heard yet, and finally found KOKIA's cover in a fan video (clickie here). There's just something lovely about the way it's sung and the tones of the vocalist that make this cover possibly my favorite just above the rest. :)

Blegh, should rename it what are -some- of the songs you are listening to, I spent hours listening to a lotta crap today thanks to severe writer's block. So here's a small small selection.

Song:Told You So
Artist: Barenaked Ladies
Album:Stunt
Rating: 10/10
Comment:I realise their music is generally comedic, but for some reason this song brings back memories, and it does make a point about letting go of things. (least that's what I get)

Song:23
Artist: Jimmy Eat World
Album: One Tree Hill Soundtrack Vol. 2
Rating:10/10
Comment: Great song. Kinda tells you not to sit on yer ass and do nothing and go out and get what you want. Apparently it has no effect on me. :P

Song:Exciteable Boy
Artist:Warren Zevon
Album:Genius: The Best of Warren Zevon
Rating:9/10
Comment: One of the best artists of all time. Hard to only pick just one Warren Zevon song though, but this one's the most interesting of them. Though Play it All Night long is kinda weird too.

And an honorable mention to James' recommendation of An Empire of Questions.
