The Overplayed Dozen

Albums that have been constantly blasting in the past few months.
1Baroness
Purple


Their best album? Probably, but this is the same band that made Red, Blue, and Yellow & Green, so it’s likely to change whenever any of them gets played. Most will probably just read this and wonder why am I listing off colours. Go forth if you haven’t already. The best record of 2015.
2Grade
Under the Radar


This is most definitely an acquired taste. It’s an album to really immerse yourself into and requires your full attention, not a common thing to state regarding Screamo/Emo records. Still, once you’re IN, it kicks ass.
3Tom Waits
Closing Time


Possibly the ideal record to solemnly drink your sorrows away too. I’m not an alcoholic, which is a good thing obviously, but this record is so good it almost makes me wish I was one lol.
4The Dillinger Escape Plan
Miss Machine


The Sophie’s Choice of music is picking what the best Dillinger album is (or what the worst You Me At Six album is). Today is Wednesday, and I say its Miss Machine but ask me tomorrow and I might think otherwise. Considering I’ve listened to this roughly 20 times in the last few months puts it as my permanent no. 1. Or Calculating Infinity. See what I mean.
5The Pineapple Thief
Variations on a Dream


Wait till its well into the night, put this record on, shut the lights, close your eyes.
6Jimmy Eat World
Bleed American


These guys are so much more than “The Middle”. Wouldn’t have touched this admittedly if it wasn’t for a mate showing me the title track. There’s also “Hear You Me.” It’s chopped full of brilliant songs.
7Nasum
Shift


Sometimes 40 minutes of pure Grindcore mayhem and noise is the way to go.
8Misfits
Static Age


Found all of the Misfits records with Glen Danzig on vinyl recently, and this is the one I go back to the most. Not a bad song.
9Modest Mouse
This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About


The best Modest Mouse record (yeah, it’s that good). One of the best records of all time .
10Parkway Drive
Ire


Probably the most divisive record on this list, I have barely put this down since it came out last September. Yeah, I like it that much, and Winston kills it. Less breakdowns + more conventional songs = a really damn good album!
11Bruce Springsteen
Nebraska


Mates, Bruce Springsteen from 1975-1982 didn’t put a step wrong. Darkness On The Edge Of Town is my favourite, but Nebraska elicits the bigger emotional response. Really can’t get enough of these songs at the moment.
12Funkadelic
Maggot Brain


So much more to Funkadelic, and this record for that matter, than Maggot Brain. As good as that song is, you also have “Hit It And Quit It” and “Super Stoopid,” the latter of which just rips.
