Safety Second, Body Last
This album need so many listens to be understood. Nothing like anything The Locust has ever done, but has everything we have come to expect from the quartet
Feels So Good
In my top 5 favorite jazz albums. The album has such a laid back tone that makes it almost like background music, but it's so engaging that you can't put it down. I have been digging this for almost 2 months now. Amazing, Amazing album.
I Know A GIrl Who Develops Crime Scene Photos
No holds bar dirty grind. Heavy as hell, fast as hell, hot as hell. Short and sweet, but none the less memerable
This and Sleep's Dopesmoker are my favorite stoner metal albums. Though this doesn't have the single trace like song, it does have the individual songs to couple Dopesmoker. Put it on repeat and let the time slide by.
I could listen to this album for days. Over and over and over. It's just so fresh. Nothing can beat it in the genre. Its only competiton is from Dopethrone, to which is carries the same weight.
This album is like glue. It sticks to everything, itself included. Very, very coherant, very catchy. Some of the best metal/hardcore ever.
Though not garning as much success as A Love Supreme, I believe that Blue Train stands up to it. Again, it doesn't have as many of the deep, long tracks, but it more than makes up for them in the memerable short cuts.
The best Jesu to date. Has no filler tracks to speak of, and is some of the best music to come out of 2007.
The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon...
An utter masterpiece in music. A beautiful yet crushing suite of intensity and melody without the confinement of vocals. A free album. You can almost feel it's lack of boundries.
Dead Mountain Mouth
Maybe not as good as alot of what I have on this list, Dead Mountian Mouth is really an interesting piece of work. Though spazzy and chaotic, it has subtle melody underneath the layers of searing noise, albeit not immidiatly recognizable. Certianly worth the effort of listening to it.

All Is Violent, All Is Bright
A stunning piece of Post Rock. Its beauty reaches far beyond many artists capabilities.
The fretless bass is one of the most quirky instruments ever. This is a perfect portrayal of how it should be played, among other things. Another well crafted, flashy jazz album.
We Are The Romans
Powerfully emotional. Exasperation and strength are both equally present for Botch's Magnum Opus. A true gem for the genre and for the progression of metal as a whole.
All I can imagine while listening to this album is being snowed in a log cabin in the middle of the winter, somewhere up in the mountians, while more and more snow piles up all around my abode. Stunningly crafted and executed, listen to this while it's snowing.
The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady
My favorite jazz album ever, Charles Mingus managed to reinvent what it meant to be a perfectionist, and through that, made an album worthy of god like status.
|everyone check my spelling or ignore it if something is wrong.|
|These are all great.(Except the jazz stuff which I haven't heard) Never seen combatwoundedveteran on a list thats nice to see. Electric Wizard is awesome.|
|15 truly is godlike, I've heard tracks from a lot of these other albums but not any of the full things. A lot of stuff I need though.|
|How can it be like nothing they've done but everything we've come to expect. |
|I wouldn't say 12 is perfect. I prefer his bass on Heavy Weather to be honest. I haven't heard much of his other work though, so I can't make a definitive statement on his best.|
|thats the point coke|
|4,5,6,8,9,11,13,14,15 are very good albums. i didnt like 15 at first but it is know one of my fav jazz albums|
|The Locust suck horribly|
|except they dont|
