Arcade Fire Everything Now
Like Humanz by Gorillaz from earlier this year, Everything Now by Arcade Fire contains a number of great tracks amidst lots of filler and half-baked ideas. Easily their weakest to date, with some cringe-worthy lyrics and the presence of annoying vocals at times too. Check out "We Don't Deserve Love," "Put Your Money On Me," and most of the singles.
Steven Wilson To the Bone
Steven Wilson strays further from progressive rock with his most forward thinking album yet. To The Bone is a colorful, accessible yet diverse rock album that explores the modern age of distorted truths and volatile nature of world affairs in 2017. Steven Wilson doesn't just revel in doom and gloom as one might anticipate him doing, but phases in and out of joyful moments ("Nowhere Now" and "Permanating"), being the most surprising here, and more progressive songs like the title track and "Detonation." Much of To The Bone follows a more straightforward rock pacing, but not without wide shifts in tone and mood. All in all, th
Coldplay Kaleidoscope
Coldplay Prospekt's March
CHON Homey
Blissful summer jams with beautiful guitar work and some interesting electronic elements as well.
Fleet Foxes Crack-Up
Crack-Up is a beautiful, adventurous folk album with incredible musical flourishes and diverse instrumentation. The arrangements are more eclectic than anything released before by the band, but their core sound is intact while really progressing as a group. Making Helplessness Blues Part II would've made for plenty success, artistically and commercially, but they've impressively opted to keep innovating in spectacular fashion. Highlights include "Cassius," "I Should See Memphis," "On Another Ocean," "Third of May," and "Crack-Up."
Anathema The Optimist
An interesting direction to go in, mainly darker and with less accessible songwriting than the previous three albums. The middle few songs are the highlights.

  • Toondude10 well knowing you I figured you'd masturbate over almost anything he does :P Still really excited for it, that pop song that was released was awesome. Btw, you listen to Mercury Tree yet?
