I remember seeing that Attila album on a "best albums ever" list and expected to hate it but found it pretty rocking

I'm either suspect that you saw that on a "best of" list, or that the author of the list has only listened to like 5 albums.

It is time for your viscera to see the light of day!

It's definitely not as bad as some of the reviews would have you believe. I think that's the nicest thing you could reasonably say about it.

You should be suspect, it was a horrendous mis-post on my part, what I meant to say was on the "list of music considered the worst" wikipedia page

Lightning!


I forget how I first stumbled across Attila but it is now one of my favorites in all its organ crashing glory as well.

I've heard some controversy about whether this act was queerbaiting or exploitative or what have you, but I'm legit curious: Having only listened to "All The Things She Said", and finding it pretty good, is t.A.T.u. any good?

The "lesbian" angle was definitely fake and made up to generate interest, but also they're pretty keen on pushing Russian propaganda (see the song "Такого как Путин"/"One like Putin" where they want to have a guy who's strong and handsome like Putin).

El Camino

The first album is a pretty solid pop album with a great Smiths cover, the two followups are OK but the Russian versions have more character, are sequenced differently and have some cool weird interludes that aren't on the Anglo versions.

There's also the incredibly bizarre t.A.T.u/Rammstein mashup album put out by MTV Russia that also has some Clawfinger and Limp Bizkit mashes chucked in. If you like "Moskau" off Rammstein's Reise Reise you'll probably dig that too
