19 albums for my 19th birthday.
A New Era of Corruption
I'm extremely glad I joined this site. It's made me realize that music like this sucks horribly, and has opened me up to post rock, folk, and a multitude of genres that I never would have thought that I'd enjoy.
A Dramatic Turn of Events
Disappointment of the year.
|17||The Dear Hunter|
The Color Spectrum (Complete Collection)
AOTY. Or collection of the year, whatever.
Still trying to digest this, but her voice is addicting.
|15||The Amity Affliction|
Reminds me of Asking Alexandria in some parts. Except, you know, good.
|14||The Tallest Man on Earth|
The Wild Hunt
Never thought I'd enjoy folk of any form.
Somewhere in the Between
Never thought I'd enjoy ska of any form.
It's definitely different, and strange at times, but it grows on me more with each listen.
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Didn't get the hype for this at first. Kept giving it listens, and after about a dozen listens, it suddenly hit me that this album is brilliant.
|10||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...
Listening to this in its entirety for the first time is something I won't forget for a very long time. Despite being 89 minutes in length (or some obscene length) it still feels like a short listen.
|9||The Black Keys|
OOOOO WHOA OH OHHHH, I GOT A LOVE THAT KEEPS ME WAITIN'
|8||Florence and the Machine|
This album is beyond catchy.
England Keep My Bones
Something new. I was surprised at how much I enjoy it.
After being at a concert for the first time in a while on Sunday, it made me want to see them live again. Easily the most intense performance I've witnessed.
Saw them on Sunday. Go ahead and hate, but it was one of the best performances I've seen.
One of those bands I was reluctant to listen to because of all the hype. At first, I was disappointed, but the more I listen, the more they grow on me, and they're now becoming one of my favorites. It's a real shame I'm getting into them just as they go on hiatus.
|3||Rage Against the Machine|
They played this in between sets at a concert last weekend, and I'm so glad they did because I forgot how great this is. More or less my soundtrack of the week.
Put off listening to them for a long time, because I didn't think I would like them. I don't know why I did that, because this shit fucking slays.
|1||Between the Buried and Me|
My girlfriend bought me a limited edition vinyl of this. Pretty much the best present I've ever gotten.
