Green Day American Idiot
When Dookie exploded into the 90's, Green Day invented pop punk. Afterwards, they were famous for songs like "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" and "Minority", but their later albums never had the success that Dookie brought them... until American Idiot came along. This is an interesting concept album about the political society of America and the story is told well with the pop punk Green Day was so famous for inventing. Sure, this album might have gained six overplayed singles (the title track, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", "Holiday", "Wake Me Up When September Ends", "Jesus of Suburbia", and "Give Me Novacaine") and the band topped the charts again just because going emo is the current fad, but if you avoid those facts you have a spectacular punk rock concept album for your listening pleasure.

4.5 superb
Bloodhound Gang Hefty Fine
No doubt about it, this was 2005's funniest album. It might have only consisted of nine songs and three skits, but the skits were short enough to not be too lame and most of the songs were superb for a comical band who haven't made an album in five years. Their trademark techno can be found in songs like "I'm the Least You Could Do", "Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss", and "No Hard Feelings" and they put their old punk rock music back in action thanks to "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo", "Ralph Wiggum", and "Pennsylvania", but this band also step into new territory with the nu-metal parody "Balls Out" and the gothic rap of "Something Diabolical". Even though the album's called Hefty Fine, it's worth every penny.

Megadeth The System Has Failed
Some people bash the new stuff from Megadeth like as if they were new Metallica. Well, this is the best album from the recent releases of Megadeth and believe me, this is no Saint Anger. The first three tracks ("Blackmail the Universe", "Die Dead Enough", and "Kick the Chair"), as well as "Of Mice and Men", will be classics from this band over the years. The only flaws I can find on this album are the two filler tracks ("I Know Jack" and "Shadow of Deth"), but they fit well with the atmosphere of the album, even though you feel like you've just listened to ten songs. Overall, if you want a good political metal album, but don't like all the mainstream attention achieved from your typical political album, I strongly reccommend this disc.

The first question you might be asking yourself when looking at this page is "Those guys who wrote the radio hits 'Bother' and 'Through Glass' are a metal band?". Well, yes they are and their self-titled album was the first step to their success after being separated for about a decade because of SlipKnoT. Corey Taylor's the vocalist and he actually shows some good vocal talent compared to the more famous SlipKnoT. As for the music, the metal on this album never goes wrong. Did you ever think that song "Bother" just plain sucked and should go to hell with all of those annoying songs from Nickelback? Then maybe you'd like the rap metal songs "Get Inside" and "Idle Hands", or the grungy tunes "Orchids" and "Cold Reader", or the just plain heavy tracks "Blotter" and "Tumult". Even though the band's follow-up Come What(ever) May is a more mainstream approach, this is a well made first album and only lacks in the lyrical department on some tracks. The best lyrics though are in "Inhale", "Bother", and the spoken word poem/ending piece "Omega".
