|A Phenomenal Musical Week ( For Me, Anyway)|
The two new releases I'd been looking forward to, Bloc Party and The Caesars, were immensely disappointing. Luckily, I discovered ( with Sputnik's help of course ) these gems.
|1||Explosions in the Sky|
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
This album was mind-blowing on the first listen. I could never stand purely instrumental songs ( let alone albums ) before this listen... entirely changed my perspective on them. Your Hand in Mine... Listen! Enough said.
|2|| ||Godspeed you! Black Emperor|
F# A# ?
Explosions led me to GY!BE, which I had always had a few songs, but never really took the time to hear the whole album together. A little strange, but I loved it.
Only In Dreams ( the song )
How had I not heard this before! I thought I'd heard all of Weezer. Was anybody planning on telling me about this song! ...easily one of Weezer's best
|4||Motion City Soundtrack|
Commit This to Memory
Now who doesn't enjoy some pop punk every once in a while? While not even close to the aforementioned, still a pleasant surprise.
In the Court of the Crimson King
I'm gonna be honest... I checked this out not because of the rave reviews... but b/c of the sweet album cover. That being said I was not let down. The title track is one hell of a song, but there were literally no let-downs or even soft spots in this masterpiece.
|whole list owns|
|gracias... hopefully next week will be just as good... i couldn't get the Godspeed album art to work though... that cover gives me chill just lookin at it.|
|Just downloaded 2, I'll probably listen to it later.|
|2 feels overrated to me :(|
|I can't get into 1. or any post rock for that matter|
|#1 - Genius!|
#2 - (Need to Listen)
#3 - (Need to Listen)
#4 - Great
#5 - EPIC WIN (one of only 4 albums on this site I've given a '5' to)
|2 is currently one of my favorite albums ever. It's beautiful, strange, and even scary to an extent. It's not for everyone, but it's damn sure for me.|
|you really gotta be in the right mood for 2... it took me a couple listens before I realized it... otherwise it just seems kinda bland and boring.|
