Pontificating 2013

Great year overall, at least for me on a personal irl way. Overcame a lot of rshit and got my life rback on track after going off the deep end a bit. As far ras music goes, I don't care for it as rmuch as I used to so I didn't dig a lot rbut these were my jams, and will probably stay on my rplaylists in the rfuture.

DX


This is just... just so great. And free. Like sea eric said in the thread, you can listen to it for anything really, screwing, chilling, running, driving, in therapy whatever. Opener is really bone inspiring too.

The Difference Between Hell and Home


I don't like this near as much as Currents, lyrics dont ride the riffs as well nor are the lyrics themselves as powerful. But the band, aside from that, play their strengths and deliver a consistent album.
3Bring Me the Horizon
Sempiternal


I haven't played this since I reviewed this last April, but from what I remember it ruled for what it was and was on heavy rotation a month preceding that. Deserves a spot, the band is getting better after all.
4The Range
Nonfiction


This hits me like last years andy stott album, the one where the guy on the cover looks like he's bent in a penis shape, except more alive. I guess that's a good way to put it, consistent too. Great listen, many of you probably haven't heard it.
5Hammock
Oblivion Hymns


It's like laying in fluffy clouds with angels serenading you and cheesy shit like that.
6There Will Be Fireworks
The Dark, Dark Bright


A recent find and immediate love. this is my frightened rabbit album that I wanted them to make. McManus sings better than hutchinson, the band writes better songs, the emotions transition better, just everything is immaculate. probably album of the year.
7The Dangerous Summer
Golden Record


I love this band. Warpaint is one of my favorite records, and this is just great too... but not quite as much. I know, descriptive. It's more of a grower though, but stick with it. Oh and can't forget the greatness of Drowning.
8Typhoon
White Lighter


it's a unanimous statement that a first listen to this is loaded and weird. but there's a lot of shit under there worth digging into, really diverse and unbelievably catchy.
