Eminem Recovery
He's back and angrier than ever. This time, he brings along some of the best music to fit it. It's a long album, so even with a few weak songs, there are plenty of good ones. This is where Eminem needs to be. It's certainly a return to form.
S. Carey All We Grow
Folk-inspired singer/songwriter music from Bon Iver's drummer. The inclusion of ambient elements and a nice slow atmosphere make this beautiful for focused listening or as background music. Very calming, but it keeps your attention.
Arcade Fire The Suburbs
Arcade Fire has found their focus. This is beautiful and unique. It's far more mature than their previous work (which I also thoroughly enjoy). Very coherent, with only a few moments found wandering away a bit.
Lydia Illuminate
Beautiful pop/rock music. Dreamy, ambient, atmospheric. It's a joy to listen to this album.
Brandon Flowers Flamingo
Slightly weaker than early work from The Killers, and a little closer to their later work. His signature vocal style is still here, with a definite borrowing of style musically from his work with The Killers. However, he adds his own touch, making the album unique, but it's missing the punchy and catchy songs.
Taking Back Sunday New Again
A more mature sound from TBS this time around. They retain many of the conventions of old albums, with plenty of sarcasm, wordplay, and repetition. It works.
Brand New Daisy
This album isn't an instant love. It takes a little while to grown on you, especially if you loved Brand New's old albums, and even their left-field masterpiece TDAGARIM. Daisy takes things even farther. "Vices" has screaming like you've never heard from Jesse before, though I think it makes it one of the weakest songs on the album. It feels out of place and much less emotional than did the bits of screaming on "Sowing Season". The rest of the album, save the often hard to listen to "Be Gone", is very good. In fact, enough to make up for any slight shortfalls, such as those two songs. "In A Jar" and "Noro" invoke emotion and are very moving.
