Born of Osiris Tomorrow We Die Alive
One of the most talented around, the band should and could have done so much more with this release. After releasing such an amazing album in The Discovery, Born of Osiris really need to take the advice of the lyrics in "Machine", and take a look at themselves to ask what went wrong. Maybe they let the fame go to their head and got careless, or maybe the lack of guitarist Jason Richardson on this album is what pushed them to focus more on the synthesizers. Whatever the case, hopefully Born of Osiris will find their way back on the path that lead to their Ascension. Tomorrow We Die Alive was not awful, but by releasing it Born of Osiris falls

Bon Jovi Bounce
The band explores a WAY more heavier tone than we're used to in a few songs (Everyday, Bounce, Undivided), which I wish they would have continued to do in later releases. It works really well in "Undivided", a song about the 9/11 attacks that had just recently happened in the past year. Jon lays down some distorted vocals over a guitar tone that seems a lot heavier than we're used to hearing from Richie right from the get go. Out of the "new" stuff Bon Jovi has released in these past two decades, I would have to say that Bounce is their best, yet it's the one that got the least recognition. Go figure?

Miss May I Monument
I don't understand why this album gets so much hate? It's NOT THAT BAD. Sure it doesn't bring anything new to the table, but there's only so many "new things" you can bring into a genre. What do you want them to do? Play fucking polka? The album offers some diamonds in the rough, such as "Relentless Chaos" and "Masses of a Dying Breed", which show the last glimpse of somewhat decent vocals Ryan Neff had left before before At Heart. The furious pace of the title track made it a fun listen as well. You'll find nothing new here, but it's the last decent album this band has and probably WILL ever make.

Nothing More Nothing More
The first I ever heard "This Is the Time" on the radio, I instantly cranked it and wondered one thing. "Who the hell is this?!" It motivated me enough to go out and buy the album, and it's evident from the very get go that Nothing More are head and shoulders above their mainstream radio rock peers in EVERY department imaginable. The vocals soar (reminiscent of Myles Kennedy), while the guitar work balances it out by keeping the tone nice and heavy, and the drums keep the pace well. The band also really knows how to set an atmosphere for songs, as is evident in the heart-wrenching "God Went North". Outstanding album that FINALLY brings good ro

War of Ages Supreme Chaos
Though it definitely will not win album of the year on any charts, including my own, Supreme Chaos does deserve some praise, especially after how sub-par, and quite frankly boring their last work was. After all, improvement is what we always look forward to when bands release a new album, and this was a baby step back to where War Of Ages needs to be.r

War of Ages Eternal
The opening "Collapse" could not have been a more perfect choice for an opening track, as it showcases all the band has to offer (thrashing guitars, fierce vocals, well-executed and well-placed cleans, etc.), yet keeps the pace fairly steady. It's the next track, "Desire", that increase the tempo, and even offers a guest appearance from the album producer himself, Tim Lambesis. These tempo shifts plus a very stellar instrumental closer make for an album that is very enjoyable and complete from start to finish.

  • TheMoreira Dude its a thrill to come look at your ratings. You always write a pretty explanatory soundoff on everything you rate. Respect for that.
