|2014 Ranked Thus Far|
Time for a list as I have yet to make one. This is my reviews for 2014 at this point in time. Will pump out more reviews and ratings soon when work settles down a bit. Thanks for reading and comments are always appreciated.
The most musically diverse metal record I have listened to this year and I cannot stop listening.
Loud, aggressive, beautiful, and thrilling on both sides. Everything a music fan can ask for from a split.
PRAYER FOR TERRENE
Nasty, aggressive, and abrasive punk rock at it's finest.
|4||Have a Nice Life|
The Unnatural World
Incredibly creepy from beginning to end with some nice punk rock and ambient roots to boot.
|5||Wreck and Reference|
Slight improvement over their already solid artistry. Excited to see where they grow from this point.
|6||Planning for Burial|
Most depressing album of the year thus far, but also one of the best. Drone is really starting to grow on me.
Terrifying in every sense of the word. Feels as if you are being chased through an old warehouse by a murderer.
Solid effort from St. Vincent that oozes originality even if some of the songs are a bit disappointing.
Folk and Indie's most endearing soul comes back with her best work yet, but still a bit too soft for it's own good.
Chevelle's finest material since Wonder What's Next. Hopefully this heavier direction becomes a trend.
Goofy, funny, commanding, and fun. Everything Body Count fans have been waiting for.
Here and Nowhere Else
A bit of a disappointment from their previous full-length, but still a solid punk and lo-fi album.
...and then you shoot your cousin
Not the finest work from The Roots but still a decent album with four more strong songs to add to their discography
|14||Memphis May Fire|
Solid metalcore but definitely could be a lot better. Too cheesy and simple to mean anything.
Chino Moreno always brings clout to his side projects and there are a lot of solid tracks here, but there is too many songs and similar threads throughout.
|16||Trash Talk |
A good introduction to hardcore music, but the song length is pathetic and too many wasted tracks throughout. Cloud Kicker still kicks ass though.
G I R L
Worst album I have listened to this year. Happy is a great single and Hunter is goofy fun, but the rest of the tracks try too hard and display Pharrel's limits vocally.
