Is There Anybody out There?
Been a MH fan ever since I randomly purchased Burn My Eyes used on the Haight during lunch back in the early 90s; was able to see them in tiny venues around town as well. Amazing. They continue to experiment and this single, why almost certainly not representative of the final, full album is still fast and riffy (no solos!) if a bit more 'radio play' with it's 'everyone feels like me' message (something MH have played to before). Can't wait for the full album!
One of my favourite things about Machine Head is that they have a moderately new sound every album. In my experience, the singles they release are sort of telling of the sound of the album. For The Blackening, "Aesthetics of Hate" was released along with "Now I Lay Thee Down". For Bloodstone & Diamonds, it was "Killers & Kings" and "Now We Die", just to name a few albums! I'm intrigued by this song and am excited to see the rest of the album. It's a good song and pretty different from everything on Bloodstone & Diamonds, which is nice :)
All bullshit aside, this is a kickass song. Keep up the good work guys and NEVER stop kickingASS!!
Rocks I expected... Something different I guess. Grew on me quick though
WTF. .Machine head meets Justin Bieber
