La Dispute Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...
It only took one song and these guys immediately became my favorite of the month. Fans of Norma Jean, ETID, etc should do themselves a favor and listen to "Damaged Goods" or "New Storms for Older Lovers". And then check out their older stuff, like I'm about to right now.

Attack Attack! (US) Someday Came Suddenly
Catchy is the best adjective to describe this album. The synth rhythms grab you and won't let go, then drag you into intense breakdowns backed with some talented screaming. There really isn't a bad song on the album. Even the intro track "Hot Grills, and High Tops" and brief instrumental "Interlude" are interesting enough to listen to every time (you know how most of the time you skip those boring transition tracks? not this album). If you're an old fan who has heard the band's original recordings, I think you'll be very impressed with the improvements they've made. And if you're new to the band, I'll tell you this CD is more than worth

We The Kings We The Kings
There are a few songs on this CD that are just awesome: mainly "Check Yes Juliet", "Skyway Avenue", and "This Is Our Town". Other than that, everything sounds pretty much the same. The guitars and drums may grab your attention, but I'll warn you, the vocals get a little annoying after 3 or 4 songs. There isn't really much about the album that'll make you want to go back and listen to it a month later. Go on iTunes and download a song or two, but save yourself the cash and don't buy the album unless you REALLY like them.

Hit The Lights Skip School, Start Fights
I'm new to these guys, but I was hooked after hearing "Back Breaker" on their Myspace. They've got more balls than typical pop punk groups like All Time Low or We The Kings. The vocals and guitars are strong throughout the album, but you probably won't even notice the drums or bass. It's kind of your typical pop punk CD though, so if you're not into the genre you might want to stay back and leave it for the teens.

Linkin Park Minutes to Midnight
Well, the music on this CD isn't bad, save for the redundancy of some of the political based lyrics. But now, remember who Linkin Park is? The guys who made Hybrid Theory? The band that was known for writing lyrics that anyone can relate to? This album does NOT carry the torch of the last two, and they've lost a lot of fans by making such a dramatic, forced change. I don't dislike this album for being calm, I dislike this album because they just didn't do as much as they could've with it. Joe barely does anything on this CD. Mike never raps, and he only does significant vocal work in two songs: one of which is a b-side exclusive to iTu

Linkin Park Underground 7.0
Seriously, the only people who care about LP enough to join the Underground already have more personal Live versions (and probably multiple recordings) of all the songs on this CD. The least they could've done is made a higher quality live recording of these tracks. Bleh. Sorry LP, but this year the Underground is not worth being in.

The Maine Can't Stop, Won't Stop
Personally, I really like these guys. Their instrumentals have a little bit of a classic rock taste to them at times - but whenever they drift from the typical pop punk chorus riff, the vocals are there to keep everything together. The album gets kinda bland in the last few tracks (especially lyrically...don't these guys get bored of singing about girls?), but the beginning of the album is very catchy and enjoyable. I recommend "Girls Do What They Want" and "This Is The End".
