Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
The second half of the album really gets this going after the first half struggles after the opener. With that said, even struggling isn't too bad for Sabbath.
While Battles is certainly the most generic of In Flames' more pop sound, it still has some of the same great hooks. These great hooks are fewer, but still present in songs like In My Room and Underneath My Skin especially.
Protest the Hero
Protest the Hero doing what they do, blazingly fast and technical metalcore with beautifully sung melodies. While some may complain that the sound hasn't really changed at all since Volition, I think it's great, as that was by far my favorite of their albums.
The Dillinger Escape Plan
Most of the songs have a very One of US is the Killer vibe to them. It's not necessarily a bad thing, however, I think TDEP will always be at their best when they are playing their oldschool schizophrenic, technical style.
Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels 3
Overall a solid album, though I definitely like it best when it is at its fastest, especially during Killer Mike's verses. Talk to Me and Panther Like a Panther are the standouts for me.
The Dark Side of the Moon
There's a subtlety to this album that makes me wonder how this became a classic. I envoy it, but it took a long time listening to progressive metal to get to this point. To me, the best parts are when Floyd are less subdued and when the sounds of the instruments and samples are all beautifully layered over each other.
The Serpent Only Lies
A sludge album that's as heavy as any which typically has a slow pace, but quickens up considerably for a few songs.
