Last.fm is a website that can keep track of users and their listening habits. I’ve been listening to music with Last.fm since 2010 and am slightly obsessive over my music stats. These stats are for my listening from the past week.
My week for November 02, 2018 to November 09, 2018
Top 10 Artists
Coheed and Cambria (-) Wow, Coheed and Cambria has been #1 for five weeks in a row. I can’t stop listening to them, it seems.
Green Day (+) I have too much Green Day in my library. Maybe I need to stop putting my library on shuffle.
L’Arc~en~Ciel (+) How does Green Day beat out L’Arc~en~Ciel in terms of RNG? I definitely have a lot more L’Arc~en~Ciel in my library compared to Green Day. I call Spotify algorithm hacks.
Alexisonfire (+2) Nice. This is RNG I can get behind. Whenever I’d see Alexisonfire on the queue, I would usually bump it up.
Amy Winehouse (+) Still listening to those classics.
Logic (+3) On the weekend, I listened to Logic on loop at least twice while hanging out with friends. My brother listens to him a lot and Logic is slowly growing on me.
My Chemical Romance (+) More RNG trickery! I do not complain, however.
DIR EN GREY (+) Oh man. When was the last time I wrote “DIR EN GREY”? It’s awesome going back to those tracks I love so much.
Mashrou’ Leila (-6) Another RNG move I can get behind. Mashrou’ Leila is a good band and I need them to come out with more music ASAP.
The White Stripes (+) I forget how I suddenly went on a White Stripes binge. I think I was reminscing about early 2000’s rock music and it naturally led me to The White Stripes. I really was a bit mystified over the Meg and Jack White dynamic for a while.
Top 10 Albums
Coheed and Cambria — The Afterman: Ascension (+5) This album is too good.
Logic — Under Pressure (+) I was barely conscious for most of the time I was listening to this album (I feel asleep to it) but I really appreciate Logic’s autobiographical approach in this album. It’s pretty solid.
Coheed and Cambria — Vaxis I: The Unheavenly Creatures (-1) I can’t stay away from this album, apparently. I haven’t really been going out of my way to play it, except for The Gutter sometimes.
Amy Winehouse — Back to Black (+2) Classiccccc. Still haven’t listened to the rest of the album. I will queue it up now.
Alexisonfire — Crisis (+) Bless this album, that got me into Alexisonfire in the first place.
Green Day — Insomniac (+) This was the very first physical CD I ever owned. My mom bought it for me for my birthday back in elementary school. It is such a different sound but I really appreciate it in the grand scheme of Green Day’s discography.
Jeff Williams — RWBY Volume 1 Soundtrack (-) Jeff Williams is a mystery to me. He really is a great composer and his daughter really nails the vocals on the RWBY soundtracks. But I think this album is the best out of all the RWBY volumes.
Green Day — American Idiot (+) A classic. My favourite rock opera. I love it.
Green Day — Nimrod (+) I think I like this album as much as I love American Idiot. Nimrod is a little bit of a mainstream sell out according to most punks (actually, most punks don’t find Green Day punk at all) but it’s a pretty solid album to me.
Mashrou’ Leila — Ibn El Leil (+) I’m listening to Bint Elkhandaq right now. I can’t believe I initially disregarded this album as Mashrou’ Leila selling out but they perfectly blend that more pop sound with their indie alternative band sound on this album. They have a lot of good ones on this album.
Top 10 Songs
Coheed and Cambria — The Hollow (+) The opener to The Afterman: Ascension. It’s calming and soothing. Pretty short. But good.
Green Day — Song of the Century (+1) I actually don’t like this song too much but it’s pretty okay from Green Day’s recent era.
Coheed and Cambria — The Gutter (+7) Bless. This. Song. It is so good. I love it. Every time I listen to it, I am just so happy to sing along.
Green Day — Tight Wad Hill (+4) Oh man. I used to love this song from Insomniac! I don’t understand it anymore but I have fond memories.
Alexisonfire — Boiled Frogs (-1) One of AOF’s bests. I think Wade in this song really sells it.
Linkin Park — Numb (-) I remember when I went through a big Linkin Park phase. One time, when I went to the Philippines I bought a bootlegged Linkin Park CD which was basically just all their hits on one CD. I was too young back then to know it was a bootleg but now I know better.
The Sound of Animals Fighting — On the Occasion of Wet Snow (-) This band really is really under my radar. I have an album of theirs, an artifact of one of the many bands one of my exes from high school introduced me to. They have a couple good songs. I might need to clear this out of my library.
L’Arc~en~Ciel — AS ONE (+) I remember this song! It’s not one of the bests from L’Arc~en~Ciel but it’s still pretty good.
ギルガメッシュ (Girugamesh) — FREAKS (+) RNG brought this song up. It’s pretty good. I really like the album this song is from. Girugamesh always had that pop element to them, being a slightly nu-ish metal band. Ah, Girugamesh. RIP.
The Fool — God Bless You (+) Wow. The Fool! They came to my city once, at out local anime convention. It was wild seeing them. I have no idea what they are doing now.
