|Albums With Only ~50 Ratings|
I can't believe these albums only have about 50 ratings. Listen to this stuff.
Got this recently. It's a well-balanced album, and good mix of different metal stylings. McSorley's vocals &
Wunder's drumming are memorable throughout. The album flow and pacing is also really kickass, you'll
never skip a track.
|2|| ||Man or Astro-Man?|
Destroy all Astro-Men
Modern surf with funny sound clips from old movies/TV shows. Great for a casual listen or a party, if you're
not big into surf, this can do it for you.
Darkness Come Alive
Pummeling metal with the catchiness of a Danzig record. Its got choruses you can't forget, and riffs that'll
be stuck in your head for days.
Another Day Has Passed
Imagine if Thrice grew a pair. Another Day Has Passed shares their same post-hardcore sensibilities but adds
some meaty sludge influences into the mix.
|5||A Place to Bury Strangers|
A Place to Bury Strangers
An electro-rock attack on the senses. It shares the same maxed-out sounds ala early Nine Inch Nails, giving it a loud and in-charge
You can't deny good rock music like this.
|6|| ||The Ponys|
Chicago rock band with some of the catchiest damn songs you'll ever hear. Simple, light, and rockin'. Sort
of like Les Savy Fav, but less punky.
Imagine Black Sabbath binging on Sonic Youth for a few years and kicking out Ozzy. Sounds awesome,
This 2-piece (now a 4-piece?) is thrashy and kind of like early Ozzy solo stuff. Mike Conte's vocals could peel the
paint off the walls - nothing else would suit this band's sound.
I mean, really? Pink is one of the best albums I can think of and this has 1/3rd of the ratings. It just
Warning: this may be too brutal for your ears. (It's also free, so there's no reason this shouldn't have 100
ratings: ://www.denovali.com/celeste/ )
It's a Steve Albini album.
Now that they're touring with Mastodon, BTBAM, & Baroness - I'm sure more people will give these guys a
listen. Imagine Guns 'N' Roses with a lifetime subion to High Times. Fans of Fu Manchu will rejoice.
|13||Lye By Mistake|
With all of the hype around groups like Scale the Summit, Animals as Leaders, and Behold... The Arctopus,
these guys should really be getting more attention. They're every bit as competent as the aforementioned
The Sleeping Eye
Along with Lazarus AD, these guys are the future of thrash. While Lazarus AD may have a more modern
approach, Iron Age seem to look backward. Now tell me that you've heard it before, but then gasp when I
tell you they take inspiration from stuff BEFORE the 80s. Yeah, they aren't you're typical 80s throwback
thrashers - and that's a good thing.
|15|| ||The Dismemberment Plan|
Emergency & I
One of the greatest albums of the 90s you probably haven't heard.
|I didn't really like 10 all that much.|
|More importantly, while it does have more than 50 votes, Kashiwa Daisuke's Program Music I has 68 votes with a 4.6 rating, is the 5th best album of all time according to ratings on here, and is better than anything on this list. Listen to it.|
|Props for 50, and also Dead Can Dance - Within the Realm of a Dying Sun should be on here.|
|1,5,7 and especially 15 are great. |
and fuck hell shit yeah to what Gnarly said.
|3 and 9 are legit, but i havent rated em, SORRY.|
sometimes things just get overlooked or passed by...
i mean, realistically, im missing a good 5-600 album ratings, it isnt always the easiest thing to do.
lots of factors obvs go into ratings, unless youre a troll or a fanboy.
|Greatest albums ever in:|
Paul Dempsey - Everything is True
Something For Kate - Beautiful Sharks
both have under 50 ratings. It's ridic!
|# 3 is so good. Def one of the better metal-ish of 09|
|i understand that some people have so many albums they haven't got around to 'em yet (i myself keep finding stuff i thought i rated, but didn't), but i feel like these albums are so good that having only 50 ratings is ludicrous.|
|According to their myspace, Celeste has a new album coming out soon. Called Morte(s) Nee(s)|
|11 is awesome but I haven't rated yet. 15 is a solid 4.5 - amazing album.|
