The Week in Comments: Exclaim!'s Reader Feedback Roundup with Propagandhi, Madchild, Metallica
Published Aug 29, 2012This week on Exclaim.ca, there were several album streams, reviews and videos that prompted people to speak up and start conversations. Here are just some of the noteworthy responses from the past few days in our Reader Feedback Roundup.
First off, longtime Canadian punk flag bearers Propagandhi offered up a stream of their new full-length, Failed States, before the album's official September 4 release date. Many fans took to our comments section and Twitter to freak out with excitement. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAH. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow." said Tomcat_Sentry, and EmRP added, "DAMN. So good." Meanwhile, @tribats tweeted, "YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!" as @BrookeSkene kicked off the fall season in style, "Rockin the first day of school to Propagandhi's new album stream on Exclaim.ca."
Swollen Members spitter Madchild's new solo album Dope Sick is also currently available on Exclaim.ca and has received a lot of attention from our readers. "The return of real fuckin lyricism!" said Greg Barry. Representing Madchild's Battleaxe Warriors hip-hop community, DeviateBaxWar said, "Glad I pre-ordered and get my 2 copies signed, plus the 7" vinyl," and Fuzion The Ace said, "MAD is smashin em... BAX WAR 4 LIFE!"
Next, our Jason Schreurs penned an amusing and astute review of Metallica's August 24 concert in Vancouver at Rogers Arena. Our readers who attended the event had varying opinions. "I was at last nights show and I will have to say for the 100+ cost of the ticket and 30 for parking it was not worth it. I could have had more fun listening to the cds at home with drinks," said mine. On the other hand, Kelownarocker said, "everyone who went to this... was this not the best metallica show let alone the best show ever??"
Over at the Exclaim! TV YouTube channel, Mother Mother fans enjoyed the band's performance of "Dread In My Heart" off their upcoming The Sticks LP. "This just made my day. AMAZING SONG. Instant fav!" said Sadiebeattie11, and Tuzaya added. "The Sticks cannot come fast enough!"
