Travels with Myself and Another
The most refreshing post-hardcore album since their astonishing debut Curses. They are even more straight-forward and brutal now, yet Travels retains virtually inexplicable obscene catchiness of Curses. It is a crazy, surreal, hilarious and fearlessly rocking album.
Mean Everything To Nothing
This album amazes because of wonderful songwriting skills of Andy Hull. Some songs on this one has an anthemic character, others feel extremely sincere and personal. It definitely packs emotional punches in the right places. Amazing album!
The latest Therapy? album is one of their most daring containing very groove-oriented material with bass guitar in the foreground. This is not one of their catchiest, but certainly one of the most unique, awesome-sounding records.
They are surprisingly very obscure. Produced by Sylvia Messy of Tool and Cog fame, this is a hard rock record that has everything in the right place: it's emotional, truthful, catchy and appropriately heavy.
Kung Fu Coctail Grip
This is a very impressive record from Tad Doyle. It's heavy as hell and very groovy. If you're Tad's fan, check this asap. If not, do it as well.

Black Light Messiah
It's classic hard rock containing some industrial undertones fronted by a female vocalist. Having very strong voice, she's incredible at creating some truly memorable melodies. Wasted is a killer track. I wish the second half of this cd was as good as the first.
An awesome collection. I just love this band.
If These Scars Could Talk
This is pretty standard hard rock as far as music is concerned, but the vocals and lyrics of Joey Culver (ex-Atomship) elevates it above other similar bands. Some really amazing songs on this one.
Blood Red Tape
If you are looking for some clever, ambitious progressive rock music, you should check this Canadian band. They are really exceptional, and Blood Red Tape is a proof of their immense growth as songwriters. In my opinion, this one even surpasses the last Karnivool album.
Supremely produced Sound Awake is more proggy-oriented than anthemic Themata. Although it is not as good as its predecessor, it still packs enough emotion and great musicanship to enjoy it wholeheartedly.
