#438: Suicide by Suicide

2.16.2011


(I would like to preface this post by saying I am in a rotten, horrible mood, and have decided to take it on this particular band/album. All apologies to fans of Suicide, I'm sure they're lovely once you get to know them. Profanity ahead.)


Suicide
by Suicide (1977 or 1980 because these jerks thought they'd self-title their debut AND second album. AUUUGH I WANT THEM OFF THE LIST.)

Favorite Track(s): Ha, ha, ha, ha! THERE WERE NONE.

Thoughts: (Pre-listening) Oh, Suicide. You did NOT want to be a band I listened to on this list today. I'm in need of band I can respect and let take me to Musical Comfortville. But I've never heard of you. And I effing hate your band name. Wikipedia said you got it from a comic called Satan's Suicide. Then why didn't you name the band SATAN'S SUICIDE? Asshats. Just naming your band 'suicide' is rude, immature, and a lame attempt to be edgy/dark/cynical. I hate your music already AND I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED LISTENING TO IT YET. Be prepared for a world of hurt, you rat bastards.

(Post-listening): As stated above, these guys thought it would be a good idea to name their first two separate albums Suicide. I listened to the first one, because I didn't care enough to find out which one the Rolling Stone votes had gone to.

I expected more yelling, but instead it's electronic sounds with a whiny guy's voice talk-singing over it. In the song "Girl" he sounds like he's jerking off. "Frankie Teardrop" is one of the most disturbing songs I've ever heard AND over 10 minutes long. If the vocalist (I don't even want to know his name) isn't moaning, he's screaming. Every other song sounds the same. I'm disappointed and cranky with this album, this band, and the list for putting it this far up.
