|Favorite 5 From 2012 (so Far)|
We're halfway through 2012, and there's still a plethora of promising
albums to be released in the second half, but these are my current
favorites as of July 9.
Neck of the Woods
Although not my favorite release, it added a lot of depth to their sound
I preferred From Mars To Sirius, but L'Enfant Sauvage was a great addition to
|3||Lamb of God|
Nothing revolutionary, but another good Lamb of God release
|2||The Smashing Pumpkins|
The newest album from my all-time favorite band. I had been anticipating this
more than anything. It wasn't as perfect as I had expected (I thought it could be
better than Mellon Collie), but it has some very solid tracks that stood true to my
expectations. This album is probably better than I give it credit for, but I was
expecting absolute perfection.
This album completely took me by surprise. I hadn't even heard about it until a
couple months after its release, and my friend had told me that Steven Wilson and
Mikael Åkerfeldt did a project together. I'll never forget my first lesson, as it was
the most unique listening experience I've ever had. It was like a horror movie
soundtrack. I was in my friend's dark basement and we were actually terrified by
its horrific atmosphere. I definite 5/5 for me.
