The Beatles Abbey Road
The Beatles Revolver
If Sgt. Pepper was the album that changed the world, then Revolver is the album that set the stage. Aside from it's numerous historical perks, no other album in history has varied so much and held such a range of diversity. Songs like "Taxman" flex George Harrison's songwriting muscles while simultaneously slandering the government, and "Eleanor Rigby" is simply one of the most brilliant songs of the century. John Lennon is also in top form with the crawling, slightly sedated "I'm Only Sleeping" and of course, the psychedelic mantra of "Tomorrow Never Knows", while Paul McCartney shines with "Got To Get You Into My Life" and the aforementioned "Eleanor Rigby". Ranging from hard driving rock to baroque-esque piano pop, from motown-like hits to Indian romps, Revolver has got it all, and everything in between. Thanks LSD.

The Avett Brothers Emotionalism
The gentle folk-rock sound exuded throughout this album does little to mask the underlying punk aesthetic of the group, and the consistently energetic arrangements coupled with the subtle, evocative harmonies to be found on every track exemplifies their cultivated and nurtured pop sensibilities. Add to the mix a penchant for forlorn, love-oriented lyrics, and all these aspects combine to make this an album worthy of more accolades than I alone am capable of providing. rSo help me out, dawg.

I think it's an incredible album that demonstrates Page's genius not only as a guitarist, but as a producer, arranger, and a little as a kleptomaniac. Nevertheless, This is by far one of my all time favorites, and every track is a ten. So yeah. Buy it and stuff.

Metallica Ride the Lightning
With their second album, thrash titans Metallica began stumbling onto the path that would lead them to superstardom. Often viewed as sort of a rough draft of what would become Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning features many similiarities to it's cohort. However, while it's counterpart offers up something worthy of a listen every now and again, here the group falls dismally short. Featuring slighty less pre-pubescent vocals and still-mediocre drumming, Ride the Lightning is truly average in every sense of the word. Offering up the same bland riffs and formats (most notably in Escape and Trapped Under Ice), Ride the Lightning only truly breaks away from it's painful monotony at the halfway point for Fade to Black and then again for the album closer Call of Ktulu. The rest, my pissed off and/or delighted readers, is merely bad. Ambitious, but bad.

John Cena and Tha Trademarc You Can't See Me
If you can believe it, I own a copy of this here.... erm, "album". And I think it gave me cancer. Now, you children know me. Nothing makes me happier than when a no-talent tv star moves his/her preferred medium to the music business in hopes of cashing in even more. But I just cannot allow this smarmy cockhole to go un-diatrabed. Remember those original beats and high-energy tracks the user above mentioned? I'm terribly sorry to be the wielder of this burden, but the fact of the matter is John Cena's innovative beats and frantic vocal style are nothing less than you'd expect from a man who makes his living by play-fighting on national television with dozens of other sweaty men in leotards. Now, even in extreme cases, a horrid album usually has at least one or two songs to half-heartedly pull the dead weight. Not here. Out of the seventeen concussion-inducing tracks on this travesty of an album, not one even makes you re-consider Cena's worth in the music industry. On the plus side, there's not much funnier than hearing John Cena belt out: Cena spittin with the Bump Bump Bump for the Knux Your whole crew gettin dumped dumped dumped with the chumps We rollin like Donald Trump Trump Trump with the bucks Your bitch-ass gettin jump jump jumped cause you suck Notice his subtle use of surrealism when referring to the targets "bitch ass". Impeccablly delivered, innovatively designed. Just like his stage presence.

Slayer Hell Awaits
Slayer Christ Illusion
Loud, fast, and of course, violent and angry. VANGRY. Yes, yes Slayer we are all aware of the usual gimmick. The question is, how is the music? And, somehow not surprisingly, the answer is bad. Very, very bad. Worst album of the year bad. Sure, the concept of a 9/11 song from a rather, different perspective is interesting, original, and entertaining, but even the shock value of that wears thin rather soon, leaving you with only the bland, dismal music, redeemed only very slightly by the likes of Catatonic and Skeleton Christ. Despite the group's vehement claims that they "never let down their fans or changed", this album is obviously a glaring contradiction to such a statement. But perhaps most pressing of all, the question has to be asked: After 20+ years, what's really that new with Satan? Surprisingly, not much.

Insane Clown Posse The Great Milenko
I can't think of a task more challenging than finding a musical group worse than this. If you can get past the utterly obnoxious and obviously inept rhymes (the kind that are thrown in there for a really cheap laugh or used simply because they rhyme), you find yourself faced with unoriginal beats, ridiculously stupid song concepts, and lyrics that any ten year old with a list of swear words and a Mortal Kombat video game could write. It's often said that simplicity sells, and Insane Clown Posse are the beacon of light that proves that theory correct.
