Digs (I know it's very original)
1Future of the Left
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.
2Manchester Orchestra
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!
3Therapy?
Crooked Timber


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.
4Mnemonic
Pandora


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.
5Hog Molly
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.
6Jam Pain Society
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.
7Danko Jones
B-Sides


An awesome collection. I just love this band.
8Papercut Massacre
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.
9Portal
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.
10Karnivool
Sound Awake


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.
