It would be too easy to begin this annual review with a snarky comment about the poopshow that was 2020, so I’ll save it for the end. This is where I announce my favorite new albums, books, video games, etc. from the previous year. Because you care, right? Let’s go.Continue reading “Robby Reviews 2020”
It’s not every day that a new Marilyn Manson album comes out. Back in the day, you could expect a new one to release every 2 years. After that, the release schedule became less predictable, which I appreciate. In 2017, we got Heaven Upside Down. Remember when I reviewed it? And in 2015, The Pale Emperor was released to the world. I reviewed that too! Let’s get into We Are Chaos. I mean, WE ARE CHAOS, as it is usually styled.Continue reading “Robby Reviews Marilyn Manson’s We Are Chaos”
Ever since Wayne Static sadly died in 2014, I don’t think anyone thought we’d get another Static-X album. Even after his wife Tera, before her passing, said she was working on getting his unreleased stuff out there, I personally had my doubts about it happening.
Last year though, we got wind that Tony Campos got his hands on Wayne’s demo material and wanted to rework it and release it. While they were working on that, they toured a bunch (I got to see them 3 times). After some delays for one reason or another, Project Regeneration is finally here, I have it, and I’m super excited to talk about it. Almost as much as I am to listen to it nonstop. Let’s go through this thing song by song.Continue reading “Robby Reviews Static-X’s Project Regeneration”
2019 is going to be a weird year for me to review because it was only like, 3 months long. That’s how it felt, at least. Whatever the case, if you haven’t been following me for a while, I do these yearly review things. Here I’ll give quick rundowns on my favorite movies, music, video games, and whatever else of the year. This year I’ll stick to what I liked and not what I didn’t. Okay. Let’s do this. Continue reading “Robby Reviews 2019”
I usually post these in December, but this year I wanted to wait until the year was over to even start writing it. Why? I don’t know. Whatever the case, here’s my annual writeup of notable likes and dislikes of 2018. Side note: I’ve had this written for weeks before posting it. It’s not a super entertaining read or even exhaustive by a long shot, but…whatever. Continue reading “Robby Reviews 2018”
As per usual for these annual year-in-review posts, I won’t be getting into world events or politics or anything actually technically important. This is just me going over my favorite video games, movies, albums, and whatever else I feel like exhibiting. Normally this would have been ready before the beginning of the next year, but I had to experience of few of these things fully. I played lots of games and watched lots of movies this year. Like, way more than usual. That’s another reason why it’s been difficult to finish this. Anyway, without further ado, let’s do this crap. Continue reading “Robby Reviews 2017”
Remember like, almost 3 years ago when I reviewed Marilyn Manson’s The Pale Emperor? That album was great. It wasn’t the best Marilyn Manson album, but I’d say it was easy to say that it beat the previous few albums that the band released. Similarly, Heaven Upside Down (available now!) still isn’t the best thing they’ve ever put out. However, I’m comfortable saying it’s once again better than the previous few albums, The Pale Emperor included. It’s difficult to compare albums though, as ultimately it comes down to opinion. But that’s what all reviews are or should be. Let’s dig into this album differently. We’ll do it track by track as they appear in the tracklist. Continue reading “Robby Reviews Heaven Upside Down”
Back in June, I put a couple of cool Robby Suavé shirts up for sale on Amazon. Yes, that Amazon. Amazon.com. If you search for “robby suave shirt” or whatever, you’ll find those shirts. It’s awesome. They’re only $15, and you should buy them. How was I able to get shirts on Amazon, you ask? Oh, I’m so glad you asked. That’s what I’m going to tell you right here and now!
In May or something, I received an e-mail from Amazon informing me that I had been chosen to be a part of their Merch by Amazon program. Right away, it appeared to be a shirt thing, so I was interested. I have no idea WHY I was chosen though. I mean, I have my music on there, but that seems to be a weird stipulation for being chosen to be a part of this Merch thing. It looked promising, so I signed up. Continue reading “Robby Reviews Merch by Amazon”
KyzrWölf. Maybe you know him better as Kaiser Von Loopy or Loopy or even Rob Lupie or one half of Hanzel und Gretyl. Whatever the case, while we are waiting for the next Hanzel und Gretyl album, he created this wonderful album called Reichstar. It’s super awesome for a multitude of reasons, and I’ll explain those below. If you don’t like reading, but you’ve read this far, know that it is very much worth listening to.
There are lots of reasons to like this album. I mean, first of all, it’s awesome that it came out of nowhere. We got a HuG remix album last year that was done by Loopy under the KyzrWölf name back in 2013. But I don’t think anyone had any reason to believe KyzrWolf was going to be something outside of the HuG camp. On top of that, it’s new sounding while also being familiar. Those samples of bombs dropping and zieg heils that you hear a lot in Hanzel und Gretyl songs are present and accounted for. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s technologically impressive because it was recorded with no real instruments. Yes, those guitars and basses are not real! I actually conversed with him via e-mail and we discussed. Good times. Continue reading “Robby Reviews KyzrWölf’s Reichstar”
It’s New Year’s Eve! Once upon a time, this was my favorite holiday. Now…it’s not. Anyway, I did one of these Year-in-Review things last year, and it was kind of fun. I read, watched, and played a lot more stuff this year than last year, so this should be more interesting to write and read.
Books, movies, video games, and books are the things that I am ranking here. Nothing else matters, not even the presidential election. Like last year, I’ll give my top 3 picks for each category in no particular order, probably. Continue reading “Robby Reviews the Year 2016”
