Music Of The Break

During Christmas break, I decided to check out as many bands on my music list as possible. Stopped yesterday so I could digest this stuff instead of rushing through it. Here's what I got.
1John Frusciante
The Will to Death


3
2Thursday
Waiting


Wanted to get this since Thursday is one of my favorite bands. Not very good but showed potential. 2.5
3 Pedro the Lion
It's Hard to Find a Friend


One of Dustin Kensrue's favorite bands so I naturally wanted to hear it. I don't get it. 3
4Paramore
Brand New Eyes


Ridiculously catchy and pretty original for pop punk. 4
5Beastie Boys
Solid Gold Hits


Amazon had it for like $2, been needin me some Beastie Boys. 4
6Amorphis
Silent Waters


Haven't listened to it much, but wasn't too impressed.
7Dustin Kensrue
Please Come Home


Thrice's frontman's solo album is reason enough. Not up to typical Thrice level, but still enjoyable. 3.5
8Mono
You Are There


I don't have a ton of post rock, but this is simply amazing. The only problem is that the second half drags a bit. 4.5
9American Football
American Football


Awesome chill-out indie. I think more vocals would have been better, still love it. 4
10As Cities Burn
Come Now Sleep


This is REALLY good. Not sure how good, but I really like it. The guitar lines are genius and atomsphere is great. Not to mention the lyrics. at least 4
11Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot for New Zero Kanada


Good but it hasn't clicked for me like F#A#. 4
12Chevelle
Sci-Fi Crimes


Enjoyable mainstream rock. The hooks are great but eventually it all starts sounding the same. 3.5
13Coldplay
X&Y


Have Parachutes and Viva La Vida, decided to get the middle stuff. Needs some more listening but seems a bit safe for Coldplay.
14Jimmy Eat World
Futures


Being not a big fan of pop punk, I like this. 3.5
15Dredg
El Cielo


Needs some more listening as well, but so far this seems vastly overrated.
16mewithoutYou
A to B: Life


Again, gotta listen to it more, but I am already starting to like and I can tell its a grower.
17Sleepingdog
Polar Life


Youaremysilence's soundoff convinced me to listen to this. One of my best decisions in recent memory. Hauntingly beautiful and atmospheric, creative yet accessible. 5
18Right Away, Great Captain!
The Eventually Home


Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra's side project. More people need to hear this, probably gonna be a 4.
19The National
Boxer


Really, really good indie rock. At least a 4
20Sun Kil Moon
Ghosts of the Great Highway


Only listened to once so far, but I think the songs are too long without enough ideas.
21Cursive
The Ugly Organ


Need to listen to
22Death Cab for Cutie
The Photo Album


Going deeper into their discography, sounding pretty average for them though.
23 Belle and Sebastian
If You're Feeling Sinister


I love this album. Catchy yet deep indie/pop. Minimum of a 4
24Maybeshewill
Sing the Word Hope in Four-Part Harmony


Still gotta listen to
