    Glad to see OK computer at 1! I feel like a lot of die hard Radiohead fans are too snobby and hip to put it #1, but for me it's just plain and simple in the sense that that album is just packed with some of the most beautiful melodies I've ever heard!

    I’m sorry I have to comment! But I have been listening to Skillet as long as I can remember. And I LOVE them. But I don’t just live them for there music I love the lyrics and the message that they put in there song. Listen I’ve been threw some dark places I have had a suicidal thought, and skillet pulled me out of the dark they saved me! If I’m down or upset I listen to them and they get me back up on my feet and keep me going that no matter how many people knock me down I WILL GET BACK UP AGAIN! None of that crappy rock music that plays now 2020 is GARBAGE!!!! Pretty much just sex and drugs and if life is hell then just end your life. I’m sorry but y’all have it all wrong and that is my opinion on all this.

    Hello. Great review. To me there are a few things left out. One is microtonality which to me is the most prevalent aspect of all of this bands output. Instruments are just intoned and veer into to some very strange places beyond that. Another is that the guitar is fingerpicked and influenced by myriad folk musics especially African string playing. To me it is not really as much in the world of jazz unless you mean Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry type experimental jazz which was also influenced by Terry Riley and the like. Fore the compositions and musicianship are so dazzling that the utility of recording is a good representation of what they sound like when I have seen them live.

    Yep she goes from an influencer, an icon, fashionista, cybernetic celebrity to a sympathic self aware being that wants to be human, flaws and all. As the waking realities and feelings corrupt her circuitry she is able to go beyond her programming and act more human. However, she finds that she only likes to destroy and cause chaos, and even sees the beauty in it. As a pop star she led people as sheep to live materially and just follow trends. But once she thought she was to be savior or 'deliverer' of the human race she became a heavy metal icon spouting truths. Ultimately she decides that the only way to save people from themselves is to kill them. I think the line "take me back to the place where we began" she realizes that she and everyone else is actually better off not knowing our fate or being awake. This whole theme goes on to her next album and starts with Concrete's message that no matter what things she tries, she can only be satisfied by spilling blood and asks to be buried in concrete for the sake of humanity. By 'Fill the Crown' poppy learns to remove her program and is finally "free". The rest of the album is more tragic and sad as she learns that she isn't free but now trapped by fears and the overall human condition. She fears the dangers that await outside our homes, and even curses the hot burning nature of the sun. Good stuff can't wait to see what's next. Would make a killer sci fi story
