|Music Of The Break|
During Christmas break, I decided to check out as many bands on my music list as possible. Stopped yesterday so I could digest this stuff instead of rushing through it. Here's what I got.
The Will to Death
Wanted to get this since Thursday is one of my favorite bands. Not very good but showed potential. 2.5
|3|| ||Pedro the Lion|
It's Hard to Find a Friend
One of Dustin Kensrue's favorite bands so I naturally wanted to hear it. I don't get it. 3
Brand New Eyes
Ridiculously catchy and pretty original for pop punk. 4
Solid Gold Hits
Amazon had it for like $2, been needin me some Beastie Boys. 4
Haven't listened to it much, but wasn't too impressed.
Please Come Home
Thrice's frontman's solo album is reason enough. Not up to typical Thrice level, but still enjoyable. 3.5
You Are There
I don't have a ton of post rock, but this is simply amazing. The only problem is that the second half drags a bit. 4.5
Awesome chill-out indie. I think more vocals would have been better, still love it. 4
|10||As Cities Burn|
Come Now Sleep
This is REALLY good. Not sure how good, but I really like it. The guitar lines are genius and atomsphere is great. Not to mention the lyrics. at least 4
|11||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Slow Riot for New Zero Kanada
Good but it hasn't clicked for me like F#A#. 4
Enjoyable mainstream rock. The hooks are great but eventually it all starts sounding the same. 3.5
Have Parachutes and Viva La Vida, decided to get the middle stuff. Needs some more listening but seems a bit safe for Coldplay.
|14||Jimmy Eat World|
Being not a big fan of pop punk, I like this. 3.5
Needs some more listening as well, but so far this seems vastly overrated.
A to B: Life
Again, gotta listen to it more, but I am already starting to like and I can tell its a grower.
Youaremysilence's soundoff convinced me to listen to this. One of my best decisions in recent memory. Hauntingly beautiful and atmospheric, creative yet accessible. 5
|18||Right Away, Great Captain!|
The Eventually Home
Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra's side project. More people need to hear this, probably gonna be a 4.
Really, really good indie rock. At least a 4
|20||Sun Kil Moon|
Ghosts of the Great Highway
Only listened to once so far, but I think the songs are too long without enough ideas.
The Ugly Organ
Need to listen to
|22||Death Cab for Cutie|
The Photo Album
Going deeper into their discography, sounding pretty average for them though.
|23|| ||Belle and Sebastian|
If You're Feeling Sinister
I love this album. Catchy yet deep indie/pop. Minimum of a 4
Sing the Word Hope in Four-Part Harmony
Still gotta listen to
