|Halfway Through 2009|
Besides the big 3 household names that we've lost over the
course of the past 3-4 days, a local
police officer/D.A.R.E. counselor of my city also passed away
because of cancer before reaching
the age of 50. A local girl also died a few days ago after being
hit by a falling tree. Top 20 albums
of 2009 motherfucker.
Hymn to the Immortal Wind
Better than more than half of Opeth's discography - this coming from an Opeth fanboy.
|3||Maudlin of the Well|
Part the Second
Album gets better with repeated listens. Still have a mancrush on Mr. Driver.
Black Clouds and Silver Linings
BY THE GRACE OF GOD ABOVE EVERYONE SURVIVED. ROOOOOOAAAAARR
Grew off of me, but growing on me again. My favorite Isis record.
This is growing on me, possible 4.5 in the future.
This came out of nowhere for me. Really digging this atm, especially Give Me the Sky.
Process of a New Decline
I listened to this while mowing the lawn the other day and have never had more fun whilst doing so.
The Eternal Return
Better than I anticipated, nearly as good as Deliver Us.
Not too big on the really short tracks but the rest rules.
Need to get more of these guys' material.
Crack the Skye
Grown off of me a lot since I first heard it, but still really good.
Kicks ass. 'nuff said.
Anno Domini High Definition
The first track pretty much sucks but the album gets progressively better from there.
Grown off of me as well. The first half is so much better than the second half.
|16||The Mars Volta|
Sometimes I really love this, other times I find it a little boring.
Engineering the Rule
Fucking crazy ass shit.
I should review this probably. More people should hear these guys.
|19||Wolves in the Throne Room|
Long, but really good for the most part.
The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion
Lots of great material here.
