Taproot | The Episodes

Taproot OG.

They came out with a new CD today and everybody should at least check  out the groovy A Kiss From The Sky. Apparently this is a “Concept Album” and after listening to the CD twice I completely didn’t catch it was a concept album.

I have no plans to give any explanation to the above image.

    I’m pretty sure Vanbergs hates this. I dig at least half of it (No surrender, A Kiss from The Sky, The Everlasting, Around the Bend) and am warming up to the other tracks upon repeated listens.

    However, they drastically over-use the Stephen Hawking voice. It was cool on No Surrender but they shouldn’t have put it in half the songs on their album. It gets old IMMEDIATELY and feels gimicky at best now.

    Even so, Taproot is one of my favorite bands and I appreciate the maturation of their music more than most I think, including this album. I fully creative and original works vs today’s pop world where music has no meaning.

    Yeah I would like a cut of this CD too minus the computer voice. I’m sure somebody with good audio software can fix it. Some of the production is weird on this CD too it’s kinda bass heavy. I haven’t really “listened” to it or tried to analyze anything or attempt to understand the “concept”. I’ve listened to it while playing videogames and write email and now responding to your comment. It’s groovy and unoffensive it’s alright.

    Taproot is just one of those bands that I kinda just like. I always to some degree dig their shit and their Michigan roots don’t hurt. They are just a cool band and Stephen Richards was absolutely a major reason why I liked shaving my head.

    At least they didn’t make “Poem Pt 2″

    A Kiss from The Sky is without question the best track on the CD. I have no idea what it’s about but it’s a good jam.

    Well obviously you don’t Diane. It’s not a skinny blonde singing “power pop” or a pasty goth chick doing death growls…

    OR, a bird tatted spikey blonde overtanned man rap metal-ing about colorfol insects of flutter flight.

    You have shat on me and my musical tastes in duplicate, Vanberge. I respect Taproot for what they do. I appreciate their musical ability and their creativity. That being said, I have never heard a Taproot song that made me want to listen to it a second time. Also, The Agonist are better than In This Moment. DISCUSS

    Lol i never noticed that.

    *colorful

    I blame Vanlandw’s out of date wordpress installation for the dual post and nothing of my own doing.

  11. Vanberge says:

    Actually after inspecting vanlandw’s source, it is clear that his WordPress installation is up to the latest patch level.

    Therefore I blame Rick Santorum
