|Albums I Purchased This Year|
I actually paid money for these! Were they worth it? (warning: somewhat random)
|1||As I Lay Dying|
The Powerless Rise
Totally worth it, freaking solid album.
Not quite, a little monotonous for me, and I like post-rock.
Yes, until finding out they broke up this summer. Way to go guys.
Mmm I think so? Honestly I need to listen to it more, it's taken me awhile to get into the Deftones.
|5||Memphis May Fire|
A pretty good buy I guess. A very fun album anyway, even though I can't say I've listened to the entire thing all the way through, gets a little repetitive.
Forget and Not Slow Down
meh.....hasn't caught my attention enough to listen to much. I kinda just buy these guys albums from habit, been listening to them since I was like 12.
The Illusion of Safety
Money well spent, I miss punk Thrice.
|8||This Will Destroy You|
This Will Destroy You
I actually downloaded this first, and decided it was so spectacular I needed to pay for it to deserve the honor of listening. Love love love this album.
|9|| ||This Will Destroy You/Lymbyc System|
Field Studies EP
Definitely worth it, was pleasantly surprised by Lymbyc System too.
|10||Haste The Day|
Attack of the Wolf King
Actually only bought the single, but I plan on buying a physical copy sometime. Really stoked with their progression on this album.
Meh, some great songs, but album as a whole wasn't quite as awesome as I had hoped. I was hoping it would be what Saosin's second LP should've been...
|12||Secret and Whisper|
Another album I bought to fill the gaping hole Saosin's last album left in my heart. A little disappointed, but some decent songs still. Not quite worth the money though.
Collisions and Castaways
Pre-ordered it, because I'm a helpless fanboy when it comes to these guys. Huge disappointment, had I heard the whole album beforehand I never would've paid for it. Got a sweet t-shirt with the pre-order though...
Mmmm, still not sure on this one...it's a lot to chew on. I kinda wish they'd just chill out the instrumental madness and just write more songs like Jetpacks Was Yes. Quality track that one.
Mostly worth it, but gets pretty repetitive for me. I'm still developing my appreciation for the whole hardcore punk thing though, so we'll see if it grows on me.
Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place
Worth it. Step back in the right direction from New Surrender.
|17|| ||This Will Destroy You|
Moving on The Edge of Things - Single
Nope. This pretty much sucked, but it was only two bucks.
|18|| ||The Used|
Untitled - Single
Sure, cuz I'm a sucker for all things The Used.
