Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicBob Dylan Highway 61 RevisitedBob Dylan, one of, if not the greatest poet and musician in modern history, hit his high point with the release of Highway 61 Revisited. Not a single bad, or even an average track on the entire album make this album a classic. Often voted one of the greatest albums of all time, anyone could see why when you pick this up. Elliott Smith Either/OrElliott Smith put together a collection of albums on par with anyone in the alternative scene in the last two or so decades. Easily one of the most important artists of this generation, and a perfect example of this is the nearly perfect LP Either/Or. Released in 1997, the album gained large critical success, as well it should have. Without a single bad song, Smith took his career to the next level with such songs as 2:45 AM and Say Yes. Intelligent lyrics over his beautiful voice make for a modern masterpiece that will be enjoyed for years to come. Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin IIILed Zeppelin hit their peak with their third studio release. The band focused more on folk aspects, rather then the blues sound they became known for. The album is filled with classics, which Im sure every fan knows. Songs like Gallows Pole, Out On The Tiles Bron-Y-Aur Stom, and of course the almighty Immigrant Song make for a turly classic piece of work.
Radiohead OK ComputerThe album where Radiohead perfected the alt rock sound, and hit a level of respect few bands get a chance to hold. The album does not have a throw away track, and is more then worth the price tag to anyone out there, not just alt rock or pop rock fans but any music fan in general. This album is a must in any music collection.4.5 superb...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Source Tags & CodesAt the Drive-In Relationship of CommandBeck Sea ChangeBob Dylan The Freewheelin' Bob DylanBob Dylan Blood on the TracksBroken Social Scene Broken Social SceneDeath From Above 1979 You're a Woman, I'm a MachineDinosaur Jr. Dinosaurdredg El CieloElliott Smith XOElliott Smith From a Basement on the HillElliott Smith is one of the most beloved and respected singer/ songwriters of this generation, and after listening to past work, anyone can see why. Poetic lyrics over beautiful vocals make for a great listening experience. Sadly, Smith took his own life before even this album was released, but his work lives on. With the release of From A Basement On The Hill, Smithís body of work has proven, even in death, he can move people. Another great album lyrically, good guitar work and keys at times. Not his best album bu any stretch of the imagination, but solid nonetheless. Recommend this to anyone that likes music, that simple.Elliott Smith Roman CandleExplosions in the Sky The Earth is Not a Cold Dead PlaceExplosions in the Sky Those Who Tell the Truth...Godspeed You!

With the release of Amputechure, they have added another solid piece of work. Omar gave up some of the guitar duties to John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chile Peppers, and a seasoned veteran of the music game comes through for The Mars Volta in a big way. The guitar solos may be stronger here then ever before, and the dueling between Omar and Cedric at the instrument is again spot on. The horn use on this album is easily and unquestionablely their best work yet. Finally the trumpets are allowed to come in to their own, and really add to the overall feel of the album. Keys, percussion, and the preciously mentioned horns add even more of a Latin feel then in past work, and even Omar?s guitar work seems more Latin inspired then ever before. The vocals are very Mars Volta, with Cedric?s amazing vocal range spewing out more classic lines that fans have came to expect and enjoy. The time signatures are more comparable to that of their debut album De-Loused In The Comatorium, but song structure (although shorter) are much more like their follow up, Frances The Mute. Instant fan favorites such as Vermicide and Tetragrammaton are going to be enjoyed for years to come. Not their best work, but very close, highly recommend this album to any music fan.Two Gallants The ThroesTwo Gallants What the Toll Tells4.0 excellentAFI The Art of DrowningAgainst Me!

Easily his best work since 2002's Sea Change, Beck takes us back to the famed Odelay! Days. Oh yes, the feel good songs featuring the white boy rapping, giving us more great lines and even better overall songs. Nausea may be the pop single of the year, and really puts an exclamation mark on Becks return, a real stand out on a already solid album. This album is a must for any long time Beck fan, and even music fans looking to find out more about the talented singer.Belle and Sebastian If You're Feeling SinisterBelle and Sebastian TigermilkBob Dylan Bob DylanBob Dylan Modern TimesBright Eyes I'm Wide Awake, It's MorningBroken Social Scene You Forgot It In PeopleCold War Kids Up In RagsdEUS Pocket RevolutionDinosaur Jr. Bugdredg Leitmotifdredg Live at The FillmoreElliott Smith Figure 8Elliott Smith Elliott SmithFugazi The ArgumentGodspeed You!

Jack White brought some of his best lyrics and guitar work over a grand production job. The album has many fan favorites, and of course the infamous Seven Nation Army, which many fans have grown to hate for how large it made the band. Never the less, you would have a hard time finding a single bad track on the album, and really should be in any music collection.The White Stripes The White StripesThe White Stripes De StijlThe White Stripes Under Blackpool LightsThe White Stripes Walking With a GhostTool LateralusTool AenimaTool SalivalVolta Do Mar 03>98Weezer PinkertonWintersleep Untitled3.5 great...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Worlds ApartAgainst Me!

Searching for a Former ClarityArcade Fire FuneralArctic Monkeys Whatever People Say I Am, That's What...Arctic Monkeys Who The Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys?Audioslave Live in CubaAudioslave RevelationsAudioslave moved on in the minds of many fans with Out Of Exile in 2005. Their sound came together, the band found a sound all their own, and found themself selling loads of records and gaining some critical success. To say the band has stepped back a few steps with the release of Revelations is letting them off lightly. The album, at first listen seems to carry the same depth as Out Of Exile, however when you dig in a bit you discover very little there. The songs get old, very quicky, and drag on with the same riffs and verses done in the past. These riffs are nice, but feel empty at this point. The vocals are very Cornell, but the man seems very uninspired and bored at various points on the album. Is the album bad? Of course not, this is a solid piece of work, we just have heard it done before, and done much better. Is it worth your hard earned dollars and very previous time? No/Very little, when you can get Out Of Exile and enjoy it much more. A true disappointment for any fan out there.Beastie Boys Licensed to IllBilly Talent Billy TalentBloc Party Silent AlarmBreaking Benjamin We Are Not AloneBright Eyes Digital Ash in a Digital UrnBush Sixteen StoneCoheed and Cambria From Fear Through the Eyes of MadnessCold War Kids With Our Wallets FullCold War Kids Mulberry StreetCold War Kids Robbers and CowardsColdplay A Rush of Blood to the HeadCollective Soul 7even Year ItchCollective Soul YouthDeath Cab for Cutie The Photo AlbumDeath Cab for Cutie You Can Play These Songs With ChordsDeath Cab for Cutie Drive Well, Sleep Carefully (DVD)Def Leppard PyromaniaDef Leppard Retro ActiveDeftones White PonyEminem The Marshall Mathers LPFleetwood Mac RumoursGreen Day DookieHinder Extreme BehaviorIncubus S.C.I.E.N.C.E.Incubus Live in Japan 2004Incubus Live at Lollapalooza 2003Jane's Addiction Nothing's ShockingJimi Hendrix Experience Hendrix: The Best of Hendrixk-os Joyful Rebellionk-os Atlantis: Hymns For DiscoKings of Convenience Riot on an Empty StreetKISS Alive!KISS RevengeKorn Follow the LeaderKorn Greatest Hits Vol. 1Led Zeppelin Early Days/Latter DaysLed Zeppelin Led Zeppelin [DVD]Led Zeppelin Best Of, Vol. 2: Latter DaysMastodon Call of the MastodonMetallica MetallicaMoby PlayModest Mouse Good News for People Who Love Bad NewsMotley Crue Greatest Hits (1998)Muse Origin of SymmetryMuse Absolution TourNeil Young Silver & GoldNeil Young Living with WarNickelback Silver Side UpNine Inch Nails With TeethNOFX The War on ErrorismNOFX RibbedNorah Jones Come Away with MeOceansize Everyone Into PositionOur Lady Peace NaveedOur Lady Peace ClumsyOutKast Speakerboxxx/The Love BelowPorcupine Tree DeadwingRage Against the Machine Live & RareRage Against the Machine Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium (DVD)Red Hot Chili Peppers Greatest HitsRed Hot Chili Peppers What Hits!?

Even a line up change at vocals did not slow them down. However, with the release of this album, they fell apart rather quicky after. The effort had a good single, but failed to match on the rest of the album. The sound, is awkward to say the least and lyrics do not help much. Easily the worst album I have ever bought, and I have bought a few stinkers in my life, the album is worthless, and should be forgotten.Limp Bizkit Results May VaryLimp Bizkit capitalized on the backs of fourteen year olds for many years before hitting a downward spiral with the death of most nu-metal in the first few years of the new decade. In 2003, they tried to gain some respectably back with the release of Results May Vary. The album holds many of the traits their old work had, however with the public more then moved on to other artists, the album fell flat. The album features the same old poor rapping skills Durst became infamous for over the years. The lyrics are simply awful, and even the musicianship that saved their past work from being worthless failed to hit it standards on this album. Mainly due to the fact that Wes left, and the hate from the rest of the band towards Durst and his antics almost smacks the listener in the face in interviews and on the album. The album seems very mailed in, avoid at all costs.Papa Roach InfestPapa Roach, the emo-posers they are now, are much better then what they used to be. Which of course was metal-posers. The album is very good if you are twelve years of age and the year is 2000, but if you do not fit this deception, you should avoid this album at all costs. The album is filled with cheesy lyrics and played out guitar riffs, what else is there to make you want to run the other way at first listen.Puddle of Mudd Life On DisplayPuddle Of Mudd did ride Fred Durst, and nu-metal in general to produce a good album in Come Clean. However their second release was filled with over produced radio rock that failed to add anything new to rock, or music for that matter. The album uses the same old same old in terms of riffs and lyrics, and just becomes very boring, very quickly.The Used In Love and DeathThe Used came out of the gate with a decent start, however decent is not a work I can associate with this poor effort. The album, with very little lyrical content of any substance, fails to hit what The Used gained popularity for. Which were aggressive musicianship over the singers vocal range, however this album just becomes a copy of what they use to be. Not looking forward to their next work, and Iím not sure why anyone would be.
