Yazz_40 2013


The last three songs on the album feel like bonus tracks to me, but the first seven are
spectacular post-hardcore with a vocalist who's more than just a Claudio Sanchez
impersonator. Best track: When Under Pressure Explode
39Protest the Hero

Probably didn't spin any album as much as this one...can't help but enjoy the hell out
of this. Best track: Mist
38So Hideous
Last Poem/First Light

It's actually quite lovely. Best track: My Light
37Jon Hopkins

The popular electronic pick. Best track: Immunity
36Flat Earth Society

A bit of a lopsided listen as a whole, but each individual track works quite well. Best
track: Experiments in the Revival of Organisms
35Entropia (PL)

SMsBMAOTY (Surprise Metrosexual Black Metal Album of the Year) Best track: Pascal
34Eleventh He Reaches London

They're pretty much just an aggressive folk band after stripping away the
hardcore/metal elements from their past few albums, but the intensity is still very
much present. Best track: Body Unbind
33Dean Blunt
The Redeemer

Weird existential pop. Best track: Demon
32Forest Swords

Trip-Hop. Best track: Thor's Stone
31The Black Heart Rebellion
Har Nevo

Mystikal. Best track: The Woods I Run From
30Tyler Brown
The Hollows

Fuck "Weekend" is the best song ever. Best track: Weekend (Un Beso)
29Yamantaka // Sonic Titan

Amerika. Best track: Whalesong
28The Reign of Kindo
Play With Fire

Band is killer live. Best track: I Hate Music
27Big Big Train
English Electric Part 2

What Genesis would sound like today if Phil Collins didn't take over. Best track: East
Coast Racer

It's not as wholly eclectic as their last two releases, but shit can their vocalist sing.
Best track: The Valley
25Sigur Ros

Kveikurtak. Best track: Isjaki

Sounds like an anachronism from both the 1960's and the 2060's...ecstasy. Best
Track: Heartbreaks + Setbacks
23Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels

Jesus do El-P and Killer Mike know how to arrange and craft a hip-hop album. Best
track: Sea Legs
One Big Particular Loop

These guys reinvented themselves from a run of the mill post-hardcore band to the
best Radiohead cover band ever. Best track: Falling in Rain
21Nine Inch Nails
Hesitation Marks

I've never even really liked what are supposed to be Trent's best albums but this
album is really effective marriage of electronic/industrial and gothic pop and it's much
easier to stomach than his FUCK THE WORLD albums. Best track: All Time Low
20The National
Trouble Will Find Me

Used to be utterly bored by these guys but I think aging has caught up to me and
made me more boring so now I enjoy them. Best track: I Need My Girl
19Tim Hecker

Ambient descriptionz.
18The Dillinger Escape Plan
One of Us is the Killer

Music to bloody your own cranium to. Best track: Magic That I Held You Prisoner
From the Bird's Cage

Fuck vowels. Best track: Cardboard Houses
Colored Sands

Manages to separate itself from other crazy technical metal albums due to its
understanding of musical form and structure. Best track: Colored Sands
15Jamie Lenman
Muscle Memory

The hardcore cd is a bit overwhelming, but as usual Jamie manages to write intelligent
songs with charming/sardonic lyrics. Best track on hardcore cd: No News is Good
News / Best track on acoustic cd: Little Lives
14Altar of Plagues
Teethed Glory and Injury

I'm so glad they cut the bullshit. Best track: Reflection Pulse Remains
Heart of Oak

MastodOpeth. Best track: For Lisa

New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light

Hrrnk. Best track: To See More Light
11Ensemble Pearl
Ensemble Pearl

Ghost! Best track: Ghost Parade
10Streetlight Manifesto
The Hands That Thieve

Too much consistency. Best track: With Any Sort of Certainty

Take note, crappy instrumental metal bands. Best track: Deeply Woven

Loud City Song

Bleach, lighter fluid, ammonia, you know - lady stuff. Best track: Into the Green Wild
Messe I.X-VI.X

Wolves in the Symphonium. Best track: Son of Man
6 Boards of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

What is today but yesterday's tomorrow's harvest? Best Track: Nothing is Real
5Fire! Orchestra

Banshee wails + jazz.
4The Knife
Shaking the Habitual

Banshee wails + electronic propaganda. Best track: Raging Lung
3Black Host
Life in the Sugar Candle Mines

Sweet, controlled chaos. Best Track: Hover
2The Gabriel Construct
Interior City

Very thoughtful songwriting here; a bit of a cumbersome underlying theme but the
music complements and enhances the story quite well. Best Track: Fear of Humanity
or Defense Highway
1Kayo Dot

Duh. Best Track: Passing the River
