Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicAesop Rock Labor DaysAlexisonfire Watch Out!This is Alexisonfire at their very best. On Watch Out, they hit a perfect balance between their more aggressive approach like on their self-titled debut and the more melodic and accessible sound like on later albums such as Crisis and 2009's Old Crows / Young Cardinals. This album, at least vocally, is what every good post-hardcore album should be. The interplay between George Petit's screams and Dallas Green's softer tones create a constant back and forth that sounds like a battle sometimes, but an agreement at other times. The drumming is superb, the guitars are distorted and played with attitude to fit the themes of the songs, and the bass playing, while a little lost in the mix (what else is new), is very good. Almost all of the songs on here are AOF classics. Listen to Accidents, Control, It Was Fear Of Myself That Made Me Odd [probably their greatest song to date], Hey It's Your Funeral Mama....(I've listed 4 of the first 5 tracks so far) screw this, just listen to all of it and tell me it isn't the most versatile and endearing post-hardcore record you've ever heardrAutechre Tri RepetaeAutechre Tri Repetae++Bob Dylan Blood on the TracksBon Iver For Emma, Forever AgoBrand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside MeBrian Eno Ambient 1: Music For AirportsBurial KindredColdplay Viva La VidaDan Mangan Nice, Nice, Very NiceDeath Cab for Cutie TransatlanticismElliott Smith Either/OrEluvium CopiaEluvium Static NocturneFrank Turner Love, Ire & SongLet's begin at the beginning: we're lovers and we're losers, we're heroes and we're pioneers, we're beggars and we're choosers.Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...Godspeed You! Black Emperor F#A# (Infinity)Godspeed You! Black Emperor Slow Riot For New Zero KanadaThis album has to be a 5 for me. It was my very first "post-rock" experience and it hooked me on the genre as a whole. Both songs are absolutely incredible with BBF3 emerging as my favourite spoken word section (yes, beating even The Dead Flag Blues). Accessible, but unreachable, this is easily my favourite EP.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor F#A#(Infinity) [Vinyl]Godspeed You! Black Emperor 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!peace other music, it was nice knowing you! Gospel The Moon Is a Dead WorldHop Along Get DisownedWhether as a solo artist or as part of a band, Frances Quinlan can do no wrong. Jaga Jazzist What We MustWhat We Must is in a three-way tie (the other two being Kid A and Lift Your Skinny Fists) for the most stunning, beautiful, and, frankly, the best album of our modern era of music. In many ways, this is the perfect post-rock album, mainly because it isn't strictly a post-rock album. There are elements of jazz in this music which help to separate it from a genre which has become a little bit monotonous and predictable (sometimes). rEvery instrument on this record is played with palpable emotion and true talent; one almost feels as if the musicians are in the room playing live. What's more is that this band, more than most others I have ever listened to, sounds like one cohesive unit when they play. Whether that's a result of the various members' tight relationship or fantastic production doesn't really matter; the result speaks for itself. rAlso, the songs are all beautifully crafted. The first song in particular, All I Know Is Tonight, is a masterpiece of song-writing with several beautiful themes and a quite remarkable build-up. The interwoven musical passages and breath-taking use of quiet/loud juxtaposition make this song in particular (and the record in general) a truly moving musical experience. rI love everything about this album. Each time I give it a spin, the music demands my full attention. Sometimes, I might read or think about stuff while I listen to music, but not with What We Must. It is such an emotional piece of music and its subtle complexities demand the listeners' full attention.Japandroids Post-NothingJapandroids Celebration Rockrules Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted FantasyKing Crimson In the Court of the Crimson KingLa Dispute Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...La Dispute WildlifePosting a soundoff for the new La Dispute album.

A brilliant album from a brilliant band, and a top contender for album of the year. Minus the Bear Planet of IceI think I owe some of my intense love of this album to the circumstances under which I went through my first phase of listening to it. My love for music was growing at a rapid pace: I was exiting the "classic-rock purist" period of my life. I was hanging around with my first real "indie-kid" friend (ladys and gentlemen, jash13) and he was blowing my mind with tonnes of music recs (My Bloody Valentine, Modest Mouse, Radiohead, GY!BE, Neutral Milk Hotel to name but a few of the many essentials I was missing at the time). I was in my "get-stoned-listen-to-complete-albums" phase (who am I kidding, like I've left that). And lastly, I had just gotten the most bitchin', high-tech, expensive, noise-cancellation headphones as a Christmas present. All of these combined to form the perfect atmosphere to lisen to Minus the Bear. This album blew (and continues to blow...haha) my mind. It's catchy and pop-y in some respects, but musically diverse and intriguing. As a guitar-player who was boxed into the pentatonic mode of riffing and soloing, this album did wonders for my playing. Each time I listen to this album, I'm taken away to a better place. One where music is the wine that fills the empty cup of silence.
I love this album. And while I'm sure I've overblown it quite a bit (like I said, it may be that the circumstances made the music for me), this is a fantastic album and worthy of a full listen from anybody who is a fan of music, or for that matter, anybody alive.

These songs are all so good and not hearing them on their respective albums seems not to take away from their awesomeness in the least. Freddie Mercury and Brian May are (were) friggin' geniuses.

No, this is how it works: you peer inside yourself, you take the things you like, and try to love the things you took. And then you take that love you made, and stick it into some - someone else's heart, pumping someone else's blood. And walking arm in arm, you hope it don't get harmed. But even if it does, you'll just do it all again. -- Regina Spektor is a fucking genius, both lyrically and musically.Rise Against Siren Song of the Counter CultureStars of the Lid And Their Refinement Of The DeclineStreetlight Manifesto Everything Goes NumbSunny Day Real Estate DiaryThe Beatles Abbey RoadThe Beatles Sgt.

Top 5 of 2011, and that's saying quite a bit. I think I'm going to review this (we've heard that before...) Dangers AngerDanny Brown XXXDavid Gilmour On An IslandThis album is fantastic. Unlike earlier David Gilmour projects, On an Island showcases the sound of a man who has finally detached himself from his legacy (namely, Pink Floyd). This album is soothing and full of emotion from the beginning to the end. In classic Floyd style, most of the tracks seem to bleed into each other making for an uninterrupted listening experience. As expected, the album centres itself around Gilmour's guitar leads, and rightly so. This guitar work on this album can only be described as extraordinary and is yet another firm argument in favour of "David Gilmour is the greatest guitar player ever" (which I would totally argue for). I hear something new each time I listen to this album. No matter what mood I'm in, On an Island always hits the spot. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best albums of this decade, or at least the best guitar album of this decade.

However, this is more than just another passable album to get lost in their evergrowing discography. Wasting Light is surely a standout. The album is focussed and mature, but it still rocks like The Foos of old. And on that note, let it be said that it rocks hard, easily harder than anything they've done since 2002's One By One. To use an example, consider "White Limo." Grohl's vocals are nearly screams throughout and the guitar riffs are simple and dirty, yet manage to drive the song along in an effective, catchy manner. "White Limo," and the entire album in general, is an homage to the early days of The Foo Fighters, but with a new, fresh-sounding approach. All things considered, this is quite possibly their best album yet.Frank Turner Sleep Is For The WeekFrightened Rabbit The Midnight Organ FightFrightened Rabbit Pedestrian VerseFuzzy Lights Twin FeathersGlassjaw Everything You Ever Wanted To Know AboutGlassjaw Coloring BookGrown Ups SongsHenryk Mikolaj Gorecki Symphony No. 3, Op. 36Hey Rosetta!

While some hail her new record as a "safe pop record" I see it as a change in direction, and one done quite well. While it's true that this is her most produced and "normal" album to date, it also comes off as one of her best. Spektor has quite the knack for righting interesting, forward-thinking pop songs and this album is proof of that. There is not a bad song on here and that's why this album gets high marks. This is only a dissapointment if you've been waiting for Songs version 2 (or Soviet Kitsch version 2).Right Away, Great Captain!

So that's what I was expecting, more or less, when I put on The Age of Ads.rWhat I got what the Merriwheather Post Pavilion of the year. Only better. At over 70 minutes long, the album never tires or begs you to hit the 'skip track' button. It's so layered and full of such an array of electronic wizardry and "fuck-it-all" lyricism. The album is immense; it floored me. I feel like listening to older Sufjan stuff (such as the critically acclaimed Come On Feel The Illinoise!) would only result in bitter disappointment. The Age of Adz is a strong contender for album of the year. P.S. What's with that 3.8 average rating? Silly Sputnik, go listen to Enslaved or whatever you crazy kids are digging these days.

So I won't give this album a genre; but I will say that it's aggressiveness and accessibility (compared at least to other DEP albums like Calculating Infinity) combine to form a sound that is ass-kicking but engaging simultaneously.

Silent of LightGlassjaw Worship and TributeHonestly, I was not expecting to like this album very much at all. Most other albums that I have listened to based off of praise from Sputnikmusic have been dissapointing. As The Roots Undo and Jane Doe, for example, are both surely great, even excellent albums, but based on the huge amounts of hyperbolic claim they receive, I was expecting jaw-dropping amazing-ness. Pair this with the fact that this site goes apeshit for anything vaguely post-hardcore (don't get me wrong, I love post-hardcore just probably not as much as the average user here), I was skeptical.
However, this album, to oversimplify, rocks. Hard. The musicianship on several of the tracks is nothing short of genious. All parts of the album mesh together so well and in the end, it all forms one coherent sound.
At times, I am annoyed by some of the cleaner vocals, on Pink Roses for example, but the fantastic tone set by the screams more than make up for the few vocal downfalls to be found here.
The interplay between the guitars and the drums is excellent and gives the album a certain "je ne sais quoi" (to get just a little bit pompous).
All in all, this album is put together so well and resonates with such a unique, solid sound, that it is hard to dislike. Probably, this is one of the most, if not the most, mature post-hardcore album that I've ever heard.

I Hate Myself 10 SongsIll Mitch Punch While Rap"I Will Win, Cannot Lose, Came to Here, Bought New Shoes"rPunch While Rap is 11 tracks of slick beats and lyrical genius from a man simply rknown as Ill Mitch. Most of the time, he's laying down brilliant lyrics like in Hey Ladies Fans: "Hey ladies fans, can we fall in love? You fit with me me me like a boxing glove" Other times, he's ranting about how in his homeland (Russia.....) raising your middle finger is not offensive but using said fingers to create a fake mustache on one's upper lip (a la Stalin) is seen as incredibly rude (from Fast and Danger, maybe the album's best track).rNo matter what it is, this album delivers pure comedic, not-to-be-taken-too-seriously, hip-hop gold. Ill Mitch is, well, ill.Into It. Over It. 52 WeeksOne of the most interesting concepts that I have ever listened to. I want to give this a 4.5 just for the pure scope and magnitude of this project, but it definitely starts to drag near the end (which is to be expected from a 52 track album, but a bit more variety would have helped).

their 2005 release What We Must? Quite frankly, anything other than a
"disappointment" would be a very pleasant surprise.
So, while One-Armed Bandit lacks some of the ingenious flow and spontaneity of their
masterpiece, the staggering musicianship and thoughtful song-crafting techniques found here
are still stunning. This is a gripping listen with constantly shifting dynamics. And while
it's true that this can certainly be a challenging listen at times, when that's the worst

The first time, I was dissapointed at what I thought was a mediocre metal record. The second time, I was intrigued and persuaded to give it another chance. The third time, I loved it and was trying to understand how I ever passed it off as mediocre.
This is an awesome album with a few minor flaws. It is worth multiple listens especially because it seems to take a few to sink in. I'm still a couple listens away from rating this, but it's looking like it will fall into the "excellent to very-excellent" subcategory of awesomeness.Mastodon The HunterWhen I saw the track names for this I was sure it would suck. But guess what? It doesn't. I mean it's still the same old Mastodon: the vocals suck ass, the drums are incredible, etc. etc. but god damn they've done it again.

Originally, this title put me off of the album. What I had always like about Sigur Ros ( ( ), Agaetis Bryjun, etc.) was their relaxed, laid back sound. So the idea of a "playfull" album did not appeal to me at all. However, upon giving this album several listens, I warmed up to the less laid-back sound of Sigur Ros. Surely not as good as previous endeavours, this album still delivers. While the tracks are shorter, the same tried and tested methods of Sigur Ros show themselves and ultimately make this an excellent album. The third track in particular (I won't attempt to spell it) is a great mix of the new and old Sigur Ros. This is a highly soothing and enjoyable listen. It seems to be more accessable than previous Sigur Ros efforts, which is both a positive and a negative. I see this album as somewhat of a new direction for the Icelandic post-rock idols, but overall, it's well done.

I was surprised to not only find the album
not present in the database, but the band was not present either.
Anyway, Dear Dear is nothing shocking. It contains mostly straight-laced rock tunes which
have flairs of catchiness and sing-a-long accessibility. Despite the negative connotations
these qualities can entail, the album does not come across as shallow or monotonous but is
instead rather exciting at times and memorable at others. The album is also diverse to an
extent featuring off-beat, but still mainly rock centred, tracks such as Music Man
The lead track, the catchy She La, and the pleasingly off-putting Book are
highlights but there are several others that are not far behind.A Lot Like Birds Plan BAbel (NY) Make It RightThis band has the potential to be so great. They need to learn some quality control, maybe trim some of the fat, and their next LP could be something truly incredible. Certain moments on this album beg me to fall in love with it, but there are quite a few weak moments as well. They're almost there, but not quite. (all that being said, I still really really like this album - 3.5/5)Adele 21Aereogramme My Heart Has a Wish That You Would Not GoAFI Sing the SorrowAgainst Me! Reinventing Axl RoseAlcest Ecailles De LuneAlexisonfire Old Crows / Young CardinalsDon't you hate when bands change musical direction for the wrong reasons? Well, this album is the perfect example of that. Following their two monstrously awesome albums, their opus Watch Out!, and their experimental, genre-bridging Crisis, Old Crows / Young Cardinals is somewhat of a disappointment. Apparently, they wanted to get as far away from the "screamo" label as they could, which is stupid for two reasons. One, they weren't ever screamo (and that term is thrown around too much anyway), and two, George's excellent scream was perhaps the best sounding of all the vocalists to be found in the post-hardcore genre. So they compromised, wrote more straightforward radio-ready tunes, and George adopted a weird gruff kind of yell in lieu of his legendary scream. It's still a great album with some really excellent tracks (most notably, The Northern and Young Cardinals), but Alexisonfire were never a great band, they were a phenomenal band. Hopefully, they can learn to be true to themselves for the next record and not naively try to avoid getting labeled.Algernon Cadwallader Parrot FliesAlice Cooper KillerAlice in Chains Black Gives Way to BlueAmia Venera Landscape The Long ProcessionAmon Amarth Surtur RisingAmon Tobin ISAMAndrew Bird Armchair ApocryphaAndrew W.K.

On the other hand, the drum patterns get pretty stale by the end of the album, and the vocals irritate the shit out of me most of the time. For the moment, I'll settle on a low 3.5.

Aim and IgniteI've liked this less and less from the first listen until now. I had it as a 4 at first. After several listens, I can still say it's a good album but that's about as far as I'd go.Funeral Diner The UnderdarkBeing one of the higher rated emo albums out there, and allegedly having a soothing blend of post-rock dynamics, I was hoping to really enjoy this album. And I did, sort of. I mean it was post-rock influenced emo, sure, but it all sounded recycled and derivate. Each song has approximately equal amounts of skramz-y sections and post-rock style breakdowns, resulting in very few standout moments. It's still a nice album, but not one I'll be putting on frequently while other, better emo exists.

kinda boring. Still, it's probably worth at least a few listens and I could see myself still
enjoying this years later, if only mildly. The last half of the album (from Siberian Breaks
on) is actually pretty rulesauce for the most part.

Musically, the album is very impressive, and the production is close to perfect. For me though, a lot of it comes off as way too cheesy, especially in the vocal department. I enjoy listening to this, especially the first two tracks, but in the end, I'm just not in love with it. Maybe I need some LSD or something, but to me this album is just alright.Perfume Genius Put Your Back N 2 ItPerverse TeslaPhoenix United'funky squaredance' for the god damn win Pink Floyd Echoes: The Best of Pink FloydPink Floyd Delicate Sound of ThunderPink Floyd MorePink Floyd A Momentary Lapse of ReasonPink Martini Splendor in the GrassQueens of the Stone Age Lullabies to ParalyzeR.E.M.

dynamic and listenable. There are some pretty poor vocals that hinder their first track
however. I don't know, like I said, it's a good album.

Lo and behold: sputnik does not disappoint. If we're being serious though you guys, I mean, come on, this is not that good at all. Lazy instrumentation and below-average production (only the drums sound decent) along with straight up boring songwriting make this The Mars Volta's worst album yet. Silly sputnik with their silly overhyping.The Mountain Goats Hot Garden StompThe Secret Solve Et CoagulaThe Shins Port of MorrowThe Smashing Pumpkins Machina - The Machines of GodThe Smashing Pumpkins Pisces IscariotThe Smashing Pumpkins AdoreThe Streets A Grand Don't Come For FreeThe String Quartet The String Quartet Tribute to Coldplay: Volume 2First the good: songs that can be played well by a string quartet are chosen and the
melodies are played very nicely.
Now the bad: the covers are too faithful and don't take any liberties with the songs which
can be a bad thing for a cover album. Also, these compositions lack the drive that is
provided by the consistent percussion work of Will Champion on the originals.
Overall, this is still a nice listen as the songs are still good (after all, Coldplay wrote
all but one) but a lack of distinction from the originals (other than the obvious
distinction of an entirely different type of musical performance) and the emptiness left by
the absence of any sort of percussion prevent this album from going anywhere too exciting.The Strokes Is This ItI'm so gonna get a heap o' shit for the rating but I really can't see what's so special here.

This album annoys quickly and get old even more quickly. While it has some redeeming qualities (The Angry Mob is a good song, however unoriginal), they aren't enough to make up for the lackluster tone of the album as well as the blatant unoriginality. I agree with the reviewer when he says that Kaiser Chiefs seem like they're trying to create rock-anthems and that just don't fly. Rock-anthems aren't created by humans; they are given to us by the rock gods in the form of Queen songs.

I'm so angry at whichever of you it was that thought I would like this. Some OK songs, maybe three or four, but that's it. How does this have a 4.0 average?The Who TommyThe Word Alive DeceiverThievery Corporation Radio RetaliationThe production was too perfect. It sounds like they spent months cleaning away every last little bit of any personality from the record. It's still got some good songs though and it's at least catchy. I want to get into this type of music but I think this was a bad start. It's not terrible though.Three Days Grace One-XThrice Identity CrisisThundercat The Golden Age Of ApocalypseTreble Charger Wide Awake BoredTyler The Creator GoblinU2 How to Dismantle an Atomic BombUsher ConfessionsVan Halen 1984This album gets awarded with the most overrated album of all-time in my books. It's good but Christ the mainstream musical community (especially the guitar-centred one) jizzes in their collective pants anytime Van Halen is mentioned. Personally, this album is too pop-y for me to take seriously as a rock record. I see it more as a hair-metal album.

(The Energy Never Dies)Black Veil Brides We Stitch These WoundsBon Jovi Lost HighwayBritney Spears Femme FataleJust awful. This is the sound of Britney Spears trying to become relevant again, and failing miserably. She's trying to sound all dubstep-y, and from a financial standpoint, I can understand why she would choose that route (and by "she" I mean Britney Spears the franchise, not the person). She's trying to get in on a trend that's about to explode and be the next big thing, which is a smart move. Unfortunately for Britney though, the album is pure crap. +.5 for at least trying to do something different from her other albums. Also some of it is kind of catchy in a good way, like I Wanna Go. Most of it is catchy in the "dear GOD please stop raping my brain" sense though. (Drop Dead) Beautiful is honestly one of the worst songs I've ever heard. Just, read this lyric: "You must be b-i-g/Because, you got me hypnotized/Whoever said that beauty's on the inside is a liar/'Cause, what I'm looking at right now/Would make a big girl cry/So fasten up your seatbelt/It's gon' be a bumpy ride." That's so revoltingly bad, I want to puke. Oh I almost forgot, someone needs to tell her that "if I said you had a nice body, would you hold it against me?" was maybe funny at one time, but that was in the early 90s and not for very long.Buckcherry ConfessionsChickenfoot ChickenfootChristina Aguilera My Kind of ChristmasChunk! No, Captain Chunk! Something For NothingCreed Human ClayCrystal Castles Crystal CastlesTo get to where I currently live, I have to walk down this street with two separate shops that play generic reggaeton at obnoxiously loud levels. Usually, this pisses me off as it momentarily stops me from enjoying what I have playing on my iPod. Today, it was a welcome distraction. The vast majority of this album sounds like a computer getting raped. And why, oh why does this need to be over an hour long? There's barely one iota of musical creativity to be found here and nearly every track abuses the same "readymade dance-party" beat. Shitty music for wannabe hipsters with terrible taste.Dave Matthews Band Stand UpDave Matthews Band The Central Park ConcertDavid Guetta Nothing But The BeatDeadmau5 The VeldtDeadmau5 > album title goes here <Never before has an artist or band that I liked had such a dramatic drop in quality over one album. I wanted to like this so badly but it's absolutely awful with nearly no redeeming qualities. The album is choked with eight-minute tracks that have no business being longer than four, and the guest spots are absolutely dreadful (especially on the third track which might be the worst thing I've heard all year). This is the biggest disappointment of 2012, easily.Death Grips ExmilitaryIT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES IT GOES GUILLOTIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINEDefiler PangaeaDie Antwoord $O$Drake Thank Me Laterdredg Chuckles & Mr. SqueezyEmmure Speaker of the DeadEric Clapton PilgrimFalling in Reverse The Drug In Me Is YouFefe Dobson Fefe DobsonGood Charlotte The Young And The HopelessGood Charlotte The Chronicles of Life and DeathGreen Day 21st Century BreakdownGuns N' Roses "The Spaghetti Incident?"Hedley HedleyHollywood Undead Swan SongsHot Chelle Rae WhateverJames Blunt Some Kind of TroubleJohn Lennon Unfinished Music No1: Two VirginsIt's kinda hard to rate this album. I mean, the only reason it got produced in the first place is because anything Lennon and Ono touched in the late 60's was gold. Right, so what does it sound like? A bunch of pretentious contemporary bullshit with occasional actual music. I want to give this a 1 but I think it's worth a bump because there are some good ideas here even if they're poorly executed. Plus, they recorded this during the first night they had sex with each other. So that's pretty cool I guess....even though it's still a bunch of nonsensical bullshit.Jonas Brothers It's About TimeKid Rock Devil Without A CauseLenny Kravitz BaptismLmfao Party RockLou Reed and Metallica Lulu"Metal, Post Rock" wtf? where's the post-rock? this album is awful but not as bad as you're all making it out to be.

I'm so embarrassed to be part of the generation that allowed garbage like this to be produced. Unlike other horrible, shitty music (Soulja Boy, Simple Plan etc.) I don't even understand the appeal of it: since when do fans of rap or hip-hop like screamo or hardcore or vice versa?

Recycled beats, lyrics meant to "empower" women sung by mindless barbie dolls with big boobs, and a general lack of any variety or ingenuity make this "band" the most atrocious thing to surface from the boy-band/girl-band trend. For the record, I don't wish my girlfriend was "hot like them." I like my girls non-skanky.Pussycat Dolls Doll DominationR. Kelly Trapped in the Closet (Chapters 1-12)The first time that I saw this, I thought it was a joke. Seriously. The pomposity of this asshole to actually declare that he created a genre with this steaming pile of shit (and yes, he did say that; he called it "hip-hopera"). The lyrics fit the music horribly, just horribly. It's not enough to just write a story and set it to "music" without any thought as to how the two should fit together. Also, the lyrics themselves are just dreadful. He's taken a loosely put together story and extended it to 12 chapters when he's only got enough actual substance for two, maybe three. Sometimes, my sisters and I will sit down and watch the whole thing just so we can piss ourselves laughing for a while. The novelty of it all is almost enough for me to put this up to a 1.5 but then again, fuck that. 1/5 Reba McEntire All The Women I AmSimple Plan No Pads, No Helmets...
