Generic "look What I Bought Recently" List

Yeah, another one.
1The Suicide Machines
Steal This Record


A nice blend of their poppy stuff (I also bought the self-titled, too poppy...), and the more hardcore material. Probably my favourite SM album in all honesty...
2Dredg
El Cielo


Kage's review persuaded me to check these guys out, and after a quick listen to the songs on their myspace, I bought this and....
3Dredg
Catch Without Arms


...this! Not sure which one I like best yet, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how "Stationary Transient," "Uplifting News", and especially "Stone by Stone" didn't make it onto this album! Loving both albums though, I need to get Leitmotif ASAP!!!
4The Dillinger Escape Plan
Miss Machine


Way more melodic than I was expecting, and all the better for it (not that I dislike the heavy parts). Another one of those albums I've put off buying for ages, and now regret doing so - I'll be picking up Calculating Infinity soon too!
5 The Night Marchers
See You In Magic


Like the soundtrack to the (slightly) chilled-out afterparty of a Rocket From The Crypt gig, John Reis' new band is fookin' awesome!
6 Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Your Funeral... My Trial


One of his earlier, darker, creepier ones. I've not given it many listens yet (one of those I'd have to be in the right mood for), but I'm kinda liking it so far.
7Russian Circles
Enter


Another one I've wanted for quite a while now (since I first heard "New Macabre" back in 2006), and only recently got around to buying. Some of the lighter end of post-metal that I've heard so far, but definitely a great album. The more post-metal I hear, the more I fucking love it...
8Mogwai
Young Team


Bought the new reissue of this, after having the original recommended to me a year or so ago - after all the post-metal I've been listening to, mere post-ROCK sounds positively weak in comparison - but somehow, I fucking love it. An unbelievably beautiful sounding and emotional album.
9 Johnny Truant
No Tears for the Creatures


After about a week of listening, I'd place it as their second best album, after "In the Library..." and in front of "...Repercussions..." There's a bigger hardcore influence this time, especially in the vocals, but it's also much heavier. Not quite as unique as their older stuff, but much more focussed songwriting. I like.
10Devin Townsend
Infinity


FUTURE PURCHASE: Having bought "Ocean Machine Biomech" and absolutely loving it, especially the poppier tracks like "Life," I figured I'd go for this album next, as I've heard its Devin's poppiest work.
