Mastodon Once More 'Round the Sun
No rating justification is needed. Many people miss what the band used to sound like, but I don't mind the change over the years if Mastodon can keep cranking out music that is this fun to listen to without lacking depth.
Breakdown Of Sanity Perception
This gets a 4 because it is a hell of a lot better than previous efforts. I'm sick of everyone bashing this band for breakdowns. What the hell do you expect from a band with the word in their name?? Perception is definitely a step in the right direction, and a monumental improvement. The album does a good job of holding an atmosphere, and at times the instrumentation can be quite spectacular. There are plenty of catchy guitar leads throughout that are always backed with on point drumming. I do agree that the vocals lack range, but the lyrics he is screaming are an improvement from the past. It was a very enjoyable album, and that's all that r

Ghost Atlas Gold Soul Coma
It was no surprise that Cash's vocal performance is the highlight here. Instead, it was the other elements such as song structure and lyricism that really pieced together an almost perfect masterpiece. Though the topics have been shared by just about everyone imaginable, it is in the way Ghost Atlas presented and put their own lyrical twists on them that makes them so memorable and distinguishable from their counterparts. Though he showcases plenty of talent with Erra in the metal scene, it seems that the alt rock scene is RIGHT in Jesse Cash's wheelhouse.
The Amity Affliction Let the Ocean Take Me

Just like their last album, the guitars never really had any standout moments. Vocals and lyrical content obviously were the biggest focus, but the instrumentation needs to have moments other than just in the middle of breakdowns where they can stand out. Obviously, if you were not a fan of the band to begin with, Let The Ocean Take Me is not going to ch

  • Gameofmetal Exactly. It was a lot of "first" things for me. First metalcore, first screaming, first breakdowns, etc. One of the few albums that I can listen to every song front to back and remember them all. The guitar tone is perfect.

  • Gameofmetal I second what Moreira said about your ratings. Entertaining though I wonder how you have the time for all of them haha. Just wanna say that I'm glad there is someone who appreciates KSE's As Daylight Dies as much as I do. Best release from them bar none. P.S. you need to reply in the other persons shoutbox when they message you, not your own.

  • 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.
