Today Is My Third Sput-versary

HOORAY! Three years around this crazy place. List is kinda thrown together just cuz. They're a bunch of albums I've been revisiting lately. I love this site and thanks to all the other Sputsters for keeping it alive.
1Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging inside Me


This album truly is a masterpiece that my generation will be known as bearing witness to. It's not sonically perfect to me but its inconsistencies add to the overall effect. The lyrics have really been speaking to me. I also can't stop listening to "Limousine" and "Jesus Christ."
2As Cities Burn
Come Now Sleep


I recently purchased this album and began listening to it again. It gave me footing during a hard time. A friend of mine had took his own life about a month ago and this album told me it's okay to have doubts and fears at this time, but there is Hope nonetheless. Being a Christian, this album is something I would recommend to all Believers through hardships.
3Watashi Wa
Eager Seas


This is such an overlooked piece of work. It stumbles and is a bit amateurish at points but the lyrics are honest and the music is focused. There are so many touching moments throughout the songs on here. This band could have garnered some massive commercial appeal when they were around. This sophomore LP expounds on their more sensitive side and exhibits love, loss, and Faith as beautiful accessories to the human condition.
4Dishwalla
Opaline


Never in my life would I expect this band to be anything more than just good. This album blows me away. Vocalist and lyricist J.R. Richards is a very spiritual and emotional man and lets every bit of that bleed into the band's material. Also, his voice is among the best. Dishwalla is easily one of the most thoughtful and talented pop-rock bands America has ever spawned and this is a prime example of why that is.
5Converge
Jane Doe


Need I say anymore? This album is beyond influential and still holds up to this day. Converge seems to be among the first metalcore bands to really make what they do an artform. They focus on every attribute going into the album to release every collection at the top of their game. This is probably their peak.
6Mortal Treason
Sunrise Over a Sea of Blood


This is my favorite deathcore album of all time. Spice it all up with some black metal influences and killer production and you've got yourself a treat. This rules, not just as a Christian album, but for the genre as a whole. If you're one to discount deathcore as juvenile and unoriginal, you wouldn't be wrong in that. But why not give these masters a chance? Do it!
7Damien Rice
O


I mostly dug really hard into this album again in anticipation for Rice's new album but it's absolutely superb enough on its own. Gentle, dramatic, enjoyable. This Irish troubadour strains golden notes around his simplistic playing style and writes easily digestible lyrics that spin great tales, even if they're a bit cryptic at times. A singer-songwriter classic.
8Envy
All the Footprints You've Ever Left...


This Japanese band's sound has been rehashed by several bands since the release of this epic. Envy just has such a tight control over what they do. It rarely feels sensational and it always proves effective here. An excellent screamo album.
9The Chariot
The Fiancee


Though the ratings for this album are fairly split, I personally have an intense fondness for it. The Chariot were a milestone for all metalcore past and present and future and this album shows them at their wildest and most melodic. That album art is just too cool to pass up.
10Hopesfall
The Satellite Years


What this band did for the genres they touched is absolutely amazing. They were portends to the future, being WAY ahead of their time. Every track on this album rocks and pulls no punches. Though science fiction topics in music haven't always interested me, their space-y influences are applied so well here. Memorable through and through.
