10 Albums That Need More Ratings

10 great albums that very few people other than myself (and in some cases, just me) have rated. Some of these I plan on reviewing in the summer when I have more time to write non-class related things, but until then here's the list.
1Kidneythieves
Trickster


Genre: Industrial rock Current Ratings: 15 Average Rating: 3.7 My Rating: 4.0 Their best album, in my opinion. Free Dominguez has a great voice, and she adds a lot to the album. I don't think it would be as good with a different vocalist. One complaint about it is that sometimes the guitar's production subtracts from the heaviness instead of adding to it like it should. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYXz-Pglfag
2Standish/Carlyon
Deleted Scenes


Genre: Downtempo Current Ratings: 2 Average Rating: 4.5 My Rating: 5.0 I'm not really sure how to describe this. It's dark. It's relaxing. It's fun. It's sexy. It manages to bring a retro and futuristic sound at the same time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vfl18wIVApQ
3A.N.O. vs. Shadowx
Paragon


Genre: Chillstep? Current Ratings: 1 My Rating: 4.5 Shadowx is a friend of a friend, and collaborated with A.N.O. to make this EP. It's got a lot of piano mixed with ambient soundscapes and occasional dubstep (not really brostep I don't think) parts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHwTn9ihfXs
4Niyaz
Niyaz


Genre: Middle Eastern Folk/Electronic Current Ratings: 8 Average Rating: 4.0 My Rating: 4.5 Traditional Middle Eastern instruments, Sufi poetry, and electronic elements (I usually see it described as trance but I'm not too familiar with electronic subgenera) combine to make an interesting and enjoyable album. I randomly bought this from Borders years ago but never really appreciated it until about two years ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rwiE9yW4w0
5Whorecore
Headless


Genre: Grindcore/Death Metal Current Ratings: 1 My Rating: 4.5 I'm not well-versed in grindcore, but this album got me interested in exploring the genre more. It's heavy as fuck, but not overly abrasive. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnD5np7zYIE
6Eager Sea
Canvas


Genre: Post-hardcore/Emo Current Ratings: 1 My Rating: 4.0 I still don't know when or how I got this album, but it was on my laptop and I listened to it and it ruled. It puts a big emphasis on atmosphere/soundscape. Athom knows these guys and was in a band with them before, too. So that's cool. http://eagersea.bandcamp.com/track/stones-2
7THC
Adagio


Genre: Trip-Hop Current Ratings: 1 My Rating: 4.0 Their second (and last) full length album, I heard about this because their music was used for a band in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The album has two types of songs: vocal-centric and beat-centric. I prefer the vocal ones by a little. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npo9U8DT9vg
8Smalls.
Expecting The Worst


Genre: Pop punk Current Ratings: 2 Average Rating: 4.3 My Rating: 4.0 Female fronted pop punk that doesn't rip off Paramore. Catchy and energetic, it's a quality debut EP. The moments of interplay between the male and female vocals are my favorites on the album, so I chose the song with the most. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVfLvKONbVg
9Makeout Party
Lengths and Limits


Genre: Alternative rock/Emo Current Ratings: 1 My Rating: 4.0 They remind me of Modern Baseball, but with the emo toned down a bit and the alternative turned up. They're not together any more, sadly. But somehow this CD ended up in a used music store I go to. http://makeoutparty.bandcamp.com/track/are-we-sinking
10Ingrid Michaelson
Slow The Rain


Genre: Indie pop Current Ratings: 4 Average Rating: 4.5 My Rating: 4.5 All of her albums have a low number of ratings, but her debut has the least. Unlike her other albums, this one is piano driven. I prefer this sound to her later one. For me, this album is one of those that I can just listen to it on repeat and not get tired of it at all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI8SOKd_I98
