1979I always felt that this was literally Van Halen II. Leftovers from the first album. That may be true, but it for sure seems like the missing link to Women and Children First. I've always loved this record since it came out.
Post Rock. Super long songs atmospheric parts. Builds and builds to super big releases. Pretty angry at that point. Other parts have the post hardcore Def Tones type vocals. Post Rock.
Super slick production. Pop/dance songs, but there's a dreamy element. Vocals are sad in a haunting Lana Del Rey sort of way. For sure there's an 80's Euro electro pop sounds creeping in. Big orchestral parts like a the Princess singing in a Disney movie. Like being lost in amazement in the forest while faries flutter about. Right along side moody pounding dance songs. ABBA.

2015Light indie progressive rock. Like Steely Dan but less pop. This is really produced. It dosen't sound like a band to me but backing tracks of keyboards and acoustic guitars and other sounds created by a producer for someone to sing over. I don't know if that's the case here, but as far as I can tell this is a duo and pretty whimpy at that, but it doesn't totally suck, just not my cup of tea. Harmonies.
Psychedelic garage rock that sounds modern and has good production. And a huge tuba horn guitar distortion. I always thought Ty Segall was in this band, but I guess he isn't

I probably couldn't really tell the last 3 or so High On Fire albums apart from each other, but I get the general feeling that this is better than the last one.
Crisp and sharp production Post Hardcore. I'm really getting an 80's vibe from these songs, in a "post" kind of way. Slick.

Avant Garde Metal. Theatrical symphonic soundtrack craziness. Metal! plus. Apparently Sigh has roots in Black Metal but there hardly a trace on the surface.
Sludge heaviness with super sharp production and Screamo vocals. The album pretty much kills it. Good song. Heavy beat down with the occasional sharp object.

Middle of the road instrumental psychedelic rock. Not very adventurous considering this is Space Rock. Not very exciting, more of a background thing for me. These guys get quite a bit of praise so don't take my word for it.

This album does not need to exist. Amped up 80's hair meataled dual guitar covers of Deep Purple songs from when Coverdale was in Deep Purple.
This sounds interesting, and I bet if I spent more time listening to it I might enjoy it more. I just really can't bring myself to listen to it very often. What can you do?
This a good record. That's what I usually think when I put it on, but I almost never want to put it on. Really clear production. Really good band. Singer has a big booming voice.
