23:30 - !J.O.O.E.! I think rock paper shotgun I'd probably the only review site I use now (for reviews). Funnily enough they don't use numbers haha
23:26 - moonflash I agree, but I've relied on their reviews quite a few times before buying a game and have never had to regret it, so I'd rather trust ign's reviewers than Metacritic ratings, which again are just numbers.
23:20 - !J.O.O.E.! IGN are a classic example of a site that gives way too many high scores.
23:20 - moonflash I was watching the folks at ign debate the same issue about game reviews the other day and I have to say, assigning a number is only beneficial to those who're too lazy to actually read.
23:18 - !J.O.O.E.! Not only arbitrary but also weighted down by convention bias, such as people thinking 7 is an average score.
23:15 - !J.O.O.E.! Arbitrarily pulling a random number out of a possible 100 numbers = totally pointless and distracts from the actual review part.
23:12 - Marcel Hubregtse No they are not. Full stop. It is a chicken shit cop-out not giving a rating to review ;-)
***Currently working through suggestions and adding some spacey non-metal things when they cross my mind***
As a lover of all things sci-fi I find metal to be the most accommodating of genres when it comes to themes of space/aliens. This is a list of those albums which use this theme and/or evoke an overall 'spacey' atmosphere and which I find particularly intriguing and enjoyable. No order for now and a work in progress (recommendations most welcome) Last Updated: 9th April 2014
I will need some time to accommodate this kind of stuff to my palate. Very interesting sounds. Also very fitting for the list, I think. "zeroG"; I like the descriptor.
Nice to hear I didn't just misunderstand what you meant by "spacey". I have more where that came from.
But yeah, "zeroG" is the only word I found to describe that Amon Tobin track. Will use it more from now on.
