Procrastination Means A New Top 5 Rotation List

I'm putting off doing schoolwork, so of course, I'm doing a new list detailing my top 5 most played albums of the moment.
1The Dear Hunter
Act III: Life and Death

This album has simply grown on my immensely since my introduction to The Dear Hunter at the start of the summer. "Go Get Your Gun" and "In Cauda Venenum" just have such catchy hooks (as well as the rest of the album) that I can't turn it off!
2King's X
Gretchen Goes to Nebraska

I think I heard about this album through an interview with Devin Townsend where he was listing his influences and I'd heard good things about King's X before, so I just kind of sat down and said "alright, I've got to give this a listen." It's so good. Everything a prog album should be.
3Strapping Young Lad

I have City, and I never really got into it. I went through a period where listening to anything heavy while not working out just didn't sit well with me. Then, while watching one of my favorite movies, Shoot 'Em Up, I realized that the fella in the featured music video looked a lot like Hevy Devy, and had to find out what video it was. It happened to be the video for Zen, and I ended up listening to and liking it a lot. I had a friend that told me Alien was very different from City, so I decided to give it a listen and I really like it. Go figure.
4Between the Buried and Me

I've seen BTBAM live. I wasn't wholly impressed. I went for Scale the Summit, Devin Townsend, and Cynic, who did not disappoint. But of course, BTBAM were headlining and I thought they were just kinda meh. Colors made me appreciate them more. Alaska made me go "holy fucking shit, what?"

Thrice is awesome. I can't believe I didn't own a Thrice album until this summer. It feels like blasphemy.
