You Either Die Satisfied

or live to hear every artist you've ever loved disappoint you. Here's what's rdisappointed me so rfar this year:
1The Boxer Rebellion
Promises


3/5, they took a leap of faith off of the indie pop cliff and broke their legs but didn't die [maybe next album they will though]
2Dark Tranquillity
Construct


3.5/5, album is okay in terms of the standards they've set but their music has become lazy.
3The Saddest Landscape
Exit Wounded


2.5/5, they might as well have not even released this EP at all
4Alice In Chains
The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here


3.5/5, heavy yea but lacks direction and only a handful of tracks have character to them.
5Classified
Classified


2.5/5, turd of an album with very few meaningful or interesting tracks
6The Ocean
Pelagial


3/5, the instrumental versions of each song are better but the music overall is not nearly as good as the band's earlier work
7A.M. Architect
Pattern Language


3/5, what the heck happened to the beautiful bluesy electric guitar that they had on The Road To The Sun??!?
8Manilla Road
Mysterium


3/5, almost boring
9Sharks
Selfhood


3/5, sounds like this album was recorded right after No Gods but they decreased the recording's volume and ran out of creative riffs and lyrics
10A City Sorrow Built
Motions


3/5, directionless
11 The Milk Carton Kids
The Ash & Clay


3.5/5, the tracks are pretty good on their own when they come up randomly on shuffle and play unexpectedly but the album in one sitting is a bit of a snoozefest
12Kalmah
Seventh Swamphony


3/5, Kalmah writing music like they used to in the good old days except that now because we've had over a decade to digest the music from back then all of their hooks on this album are predictable and has diminished the quality
13The Men
New Moon


3.5/5, not up to Leave Home or Immaculada standards and I think I may actually like Open Your Heart a little more
14Volbeat
Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies


3/5, too popish though there are some okay tracks
15The Black Dahlia Murder
Everblack


3.5, no personality and nothing new. I'll just continue to listen to the six tracks I liked as they appear on shuffle every so often.
