I approve this song. 8/10, good old death metal. Maybe little generic, but straightforward and honest death metal. [video=youtube;g90PdTG-22M]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g90PdTG-22M[/video]

was a pretty decent beat, until he started squeaking/shouting/singing, whatever you wanna call that noise the vocalist made. 5/10. Italian baritone Titta Ruffo sings an operatic classic, Figaro's introductory aria "Largo al factotum", from Rossini's "Il barbiere di Siviglia" (The barber of Seville) . [url=http://www.aria-database.com/search.php?individualAria=30]Translation/text here[/url]. This piece is almost never performed as written in the score, with each singer usually adding his own bit of flair or subtle nuance to it. This was recorded in 1920, at which point Ruffo was past his prime, but he was still in relatively fine voice compared to those of his peers, having spent the previous 15-20 years roaring his way through most of the major opera houses of the world to much critical acclaim. In his prime, he was known popularly by the monkier "The Lion of Pisa" or "La voce del leone". [video=youtube;sZZLNLigBrI]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZZLNLigBrI[/video]

I really like Mos Def, though I felt that this was more uninspired than some of his other stuff. 5/10 [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmRjGBFg1a0[/media] Also as a side note, LLcoolJ, You have very fantastic choices in this thread, I've listened to them all and they're marvelous, majestic pieces of pure emotion.
5/10 not what I'd generally choose to listen to but it's inoffensive, quirky and kind of cute in an amaturish way so yeah it's ok. [video=youtube;edPckSU41g4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edPckSU41g4[/video] motherfucking CIRITH UNGOL
The lyrics seemed a little corny 7/10 [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsOGa1CdJrE[/media]
I'm gonna be honest I have almost no flippin idea of what was goin' on there... Some good stuff, some bad. 6/10 French tenor [url=http://artfuljesus.0catch.com/artists/thill.html]Georges Thill[/url] sings Vasco da Gama's aria "Pays merveilleux... O paradis" from Giacomo Meyerbeer's grand opera "L'Africaine". "L'Africaine" was Meyerbeer's last opera. A final version was not finished at the time of Meyerbeer's death, so a performance version was finished by the Belgian composer François-Joseph Fétis, of whom I don't really know much about.

One of my few musical turn-offs is guttural vocals like that. Otherwise I liked the ambient instrumentals. 4/10 Italian baritone Mario Sereni sings "Cruda funesta smania" from Gaetano Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor" in a recording from 1965. Synopsis and text/translation of the [url=http://www.aria-database.com/search.php?individualAria=170]aria[/url] and [url=http://www.aria-database.com/search.php?individualAria=171]cabaletta[/url] I chose this recording since it one of the only recordings I've come across to contain the complete cabaletta "La pietade suo favore". The cabaletta was an important part of structure concerning Italian opera in the late 18th and early-mid 19th century, formally known as the bel canto era. Normally for a scene and aria, which is the solo, you have the recitative before the aria, the recitative being more of a speaking part, then the big aria, then you had the cabaletta, which was tagged on at the end of the number. The cabaletta was usually a livelier bit than the aria, and it usually introduced some further element of drama to the piece. Traditionally, for this particular cabaletta, over half of it would be cut out; the first section would be sung, ended by a sustained E4 which would begin a jump straight into the rousing conclusion. However this recording does not include the "Chorus of the Huntsmen" found in between the two. Here is a link to a version with the shortened cabaletta and the chorus, sung by Italian baritone Ettore Bastianini [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDgc9YZW0dY[/url] [video=youtube;VOB9dtZecGA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOB9dtZecGA[/video]
The Thing that disturbs me with opera is lack of instrumentation. It's there, but it's only purpose is supporting the vocals. I know that the characters are supposed to tell a story, but since i can't really understand Italian, there is no way i'm going to get what the whole song is about. All that is left for me is technically impressive vocals and faint instrumentation underneath that. I find opera's and operettas pretty far the most unimpressive and boring of all types of classical music. Anyways, i give that song/clip 6/10 for impressive performance, I found it quite enjoyable. [video=youtube;MtSmzCkpqf4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtSmzCkpqf4[/video] SBM at its best.
For the first 5 minutes the song it's just a verse and chorus loop, gets boring fast... vocals are not that interesting to this type of music... 3/10 [video=youtube;w211KOQ5BMI]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w211KOQ5BMI[/video]
even when I was a ratm fan I never liked this song 3/10 [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOHjnDefV3o[/media]
The production is pretty poor, and I don't really find the vocals to be that interesting, but there's nothing too wrong about it, 6/10. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnhagTFZoBQ[/media]
