I swear to God that this is the perfect album for a girl breaking your heart. The lyrics, the music, the atmosphere...It's all there. I just wish this record didn't mean as much to me as it does, because my heart can't take it anymore.
Thank you Jacob Bannon. Sometimes I wish I could grasp the emotion and pain that you express in this album. Then again, at other times I realize that that is a burden my body doesn't want to bear.

The Mars Volta Frances the Mute
The short listed giant named Frances the Mute more than met anyone's expectations to follow De-Loused in the Comatorium. The Mars Volta switched to a stronger progressive rock approach with more tone and pace changes, song intricacies, and song lead ins. Cassandra Gemini, the album closer, is a 32 minute monster and a masterpiece of prog rock. After a few strong listens, it has become a looking forward to what I call the magnum opus of the album and The Mars Volta thus far. But that aside, the rest of the album shouldn?t be discarded either. The entire album has a Latin flare to it that is undeniably enjoyable and relieving to hear. Cyngus...Vismund Cyngus and L'Via L'Viaquez are both great songs that have long outros that feature talking, birds chirping, post rock elements, and near ambience. This effect takes getting used to, and in my opinion is a little long between tracks 3 and 4, but still done quite well. The Widow, the radio hit of the album, is very entertaining, and the album's equivalent of Televators, but its ending is just too damn long. After such a great track, the music editing and effects just drag on for two minutes without change, a slight disappointment. Lastly, Miranda That Ghost Just Isnt Holy Anymore is an extremely beautiful slow song that is the most emotional and experimental of the five tracks. I wish it's beginning was shorter once again, but i have learned to put up with this. This album is an absolute must have, a grower that nestles into your heart with each listen. The Mars Volta define themselves with their sophomore effort.
Titus Andronicus The Monitor
From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some Trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we will live forever or die by suicide.

It might be a little too bold of a statement to say that this album gives the framework for the history of metal that followed, but I'm going to say it anyway. It has the subject matter, the atmosphere, and the RIFFS to rival the best of the best. When it comes to metal, Tony Iommi started it all. This album may not have the eponymous "Black Sabbath" or the mainstream staples "Iron Man" and "Paranoid," but damn does it have everything else.

It is quite simply put, the greatest expression of traditional Death Metal ever written. Albeit only 34 minutes in length, Chuck Shuldiner?s 4th studio album with his legendary band named Death is the embodiment of what Death Metal, and all extreme metal should strive for. There is no wasted time, no weak riffs, nothing that isn?t inspiring and powerful. From the beginning ferociousness of Flattening Of Emotions, to the ending cascade of Vacant Planets, these 8 songs showcase the ingenuity of the premature subgenre, while still being able to go beyond the constraints of it to unseen territory, that many could argue have yet to have been equaled. Not to mention that the fact that this beast was written by the Godfather of Death Metal, in a time as early as 1991, speaks enough for itself.

Dinosaur Jr. You're Living All Over Me
Jay Mascis is most likely my favorite guitarist. He takes the most simple of ideas and expands of them, he flows with the music, and he showcases his talent in the most subtle and most powerful moments that one can. With his slight country draw, his wailing leads, and consistent songwriting, he has proven Dinosaur Jr to be the premier Indie Alternative Rock band of the last twenty years, yet he would not be anywhere if it were not for their legendary 1987 album, You?re Living All Over Me. Although it may never reach the same highs as his later works, it?s production may be lower, and his voice may be a bit off key, the Dino composed 10 songs that work more solidly together than any other outing of the entire 1980s (what a shitty decade). His lyrics are always simple, sweet, and genuine. The basslines never stray far enough outside the rhythm guitar, and the drums never take center stage, but it is in this album that Dinosaur Jr. is one band rather than a single man project, it is the embodiment of their energy and raw sound. 8 songs that add upon each other?s strengths, leading into the most chilling song they ever put out, Poledo. Quite simply put, creepy and confusing, it is a window into a different part of Mascis that is never shown again. It fades out with a long drone, into a cover of Just Like Heaven by the Cure, and they do it so much better than Robert Smith could have. Plus Lou Barlow?s growling mixed in with alternative music is just awesome.

Dinosaur Jr. Where You Been
At first the album seemed linear, one-angled, and it dragged on a bit towards the end. Yet, upon further, deeper listens, the music began to speak to me in a different way. It doesn't grasp the listener at the first, or second, or maybe even fifth listen. But suddenly it becomes different notes, different vocals, different music on that Nth listen. On that Nth listen it just fits, it works, and it hit me. Where You Been is a deeper and more complex album than you would initially realize on first listen. It might boil down to be alienating at first, Johnson's inaudible bass may begin peeve you, or simply J Mascis doesn't end up having your style of voice. Yet, the impurities of this album is what makes it so honest and fascinating. There is no heart wrenching pain, no hidden messages, no joyous celebration, no over-production. It's crude, unperfected, surface oriented alternative rock. Yet, whenever i spin this CD, it makes me just want to sit down and...smile.

This album is given so much praise for its shock value and uniqueness. It's not as unique as people make it out to be either. The album starts off with some of its more electronic influenced songs, pulls out a jazzy/bass-driven song, brings in a beautiful acoustic ballad, How to Disappear Completely, that is haunting as it is moving. The next three songs can wane on anyone's patience as they either deliver nothing new, or are a crappy attempt at ambiance (treefingers). Then we get to the highlights. Idioteque is the most accessible, fun, and yet deepest lyrics of the album, and yet has all the stops of extreme electronica. Then is Morning Bell which drops the ball from amazing to just good, and then the album concludes on the wonderfully emotional Motion Picture Soundtrack. It's a beautifully moving track reminiscent of 'A Day in the Life' by the Beatles. This album takes some good listens to get into, but it keeps you hooked from then on.

Sigur Ros Med sud i eyrum vid spilum endalaust
Quite possibly the most surprising release of 2008, having followed the almost uninspired 4th studio album by Icelandic Post-Rock legends Sigur R?I did not think that this would show anything more than a continued downward trend. In fact I played the opening song Gobbledigook once, and immediately turned it off thinking that it was nothing more than crap. Then after my visit to UT in early November, I was asked why I don?t listen to happy music by two of the women I went to see there. I was quite simply put, offended. A day later from returning from the trip, I put this album back on and was completely and utterly floored by it.
With A Buzz In Our Ears We Play Endlessly is quite simply put, a more powerfully hopeful record than anything I?ve ever heard before. From the playfulness of Inn??Syngur Vitleysingur, the unforeseen epic nature of Festival and ra B?r, to the lamenting hope of All Alright, Jonsi Birgisson creates the perfect environment for a reflective and joyous beauty. That even in the darkest and most subtle times, we can smile and listen to our music.

The Music Welcome To The North
Different than the previous debut album, Welcome to the North's pace is much quicker, precise, and an all around better record. It's quality is spread pretty cleanly through the eleven tracks, and the jam band rock is easily described as both fun and satisifying for those deep listeners. However not the most original of the British Indie bands, The Music only offers a different tone. Their almost calming ambience on some tracks is very nice. It's a hard difference to describe, but whatever it is, it's there, and it brings the record to a very solid outcome. This is by far the best album i ever bought on accident.

A very solid performance by Dave Grohl Inc. indeed. I personally think its there stand out album with such tracks as "My Hero", "Monkey Wrench", and my personal favorite "Everlong". However, unlike most Foo Fighter's albums, there are other songs you wont skip. The first 11 songs are pretty strong, and i find none of them filler. Maybe Doll isnt the most appropriate minute and a half opener to Monkey Wrench, but its fairly good, and it's not too sappy like Grohl's later efforts at the acoustic. Anyway, this is must for any Foo fan, Nirvana fan, and just Alternative rock jock in general. However, after Everlong i would quickly press stop. The last two songs make me cringe with mediocrity.

This is an absolutely amazing album. Not only does it constitute as one of the greatest Metal albums of all time, it brings forth a new intricacy into Thrash Metal, with some tracks verging on Progressive. For starters the sound and production in this album is leagues better than Kill 'Em All. It feels like a Metal album as the tone of the guitars explode into your ears. Every song on this album is top notch, with Creeping Death and Escape being the closest thing to filler. If you call really good songs instead of amazing songs filler...
Anyway, the two highlights are the heart-wrenching Fade to Black, describing a man's travel into death. The string arrangement by Hetfield is absolutely amazing, followed by the heavy burst of Kirk's metal guitar rampage. The other is The Call of Ktulu. Although it is no Orion, it defines the album's progressive and thrash elements with a certain edge and power that hadn't been created by a metal band yet, in my opinion. Ktulu powers along for 8 solid minutes riffing, switching time signatures into a more ballad-like approach (if you can call it a ballad), and then returns with the wail of another Kirk solo. Now this might seem familiar, but if sounds like nothing 1984 had ever heard.

Each of these songs are purely fun and nostalgic (even though this album was released 11 years before i was even born). Their simple, raw nature is what makes each one of them so individualistic and appealing. From the raspy speech to grinding guitar chords, excellent drumming, and headbanging bass 'riffs'. To anyone who loves their classic metal origins, buy this album. In its veins lie some of the real roots of metal in its purest form. One word can summarize this album. Baddassery.

There isnt as much to say about this album as there was about the two predecessors. The first four songs are quite strong and have taken a more "precision first" and an almost jazzy influence. Asilos Magdalena is the middle eastern string arrangement that makes me skip it everytime, except i have to give it credit for the good lyrics that it contained. Then is Viscera Eyes, the more radio friendly song from their At-The Drive In days which is great, but doesnt offer as much growth as the rest of The Mars Volta's work. Next, Day of the Baphomets tops the list on the level of experimentation, and it seems to switch time signatures the most out of all. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, but it is just simply put, a grower and isnt easy to get into at first. Lastly, El Ciervo Vulnerado is a little repetetive at times, without the same flare as Vicarious Atonement, but still is a powerful track and is a good ending to Amputechture. Even though a slight drop in performance for Omar and Cendric, it is still an overall great album, and is a must for any Mars Volta fans or prog rockers.

The Music The Music
Having listened to Welcome to the North first, i already heard the more precise and perfected sound of The Music. However, that isnt to say their self-titled album isnt good. They have a different tone to most British rock bands, and although somewhat underground in name and fame, they hold a very nice effect over all that seems natural and seemingly mainstream at times. It's a good album that only really trips up on the track Getaway, but its still a good buy for those who are British Indie/Jam fans.

Envy / Jesu Envy/Jesu Split Ep
Envy side was kind of a disappointment in my eyes. All three songs featured fairly standard post rock song structures. The first song had Japanese spoken word, which worked against the song, and the heavy post-hardcore build up at the end of the second song felt severely out of place. The third Envy song was by far the best, but still nothing that great.
As for Jesu, the first song takes a fairly standard, yet still good, Jesu idea and played it for way too long. 13 minutes of an electronica heavy loop, with only mild guitar distortion leads to a song twice as long as it should be. Nearly every other Jesu song over 10 minutes surpasses this one. However, the second Jesu track completely saves the split in my opinion. A fantastic , heart-warming track that still keeps the nihilistic attitude of past Jesu releases. The double bass buildup towards the end was definitely the kicker, seeing as its something Broadrick hasn't yet tried with his new project thus far.

Wow, by all means of the word surprised, I am surprised. This album has astonished me with its beauty and dexterity. It is a mold between Hail to the Thief and OK Computer, returning the use of traditional instruments such as the guitar and piano. It is quite mature and evenly recorded, not a single bad track. Easily the album of the year and a classic to come. A wall of sound, echoes, and sound manipulation has made this album produced extremely well, yet at the same time, real. This album is beyond all expectations that I had, and I'm sure anyone had.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Considered a landmark in Funk Metal and Alternative history, Blood Sugar Sex Magik is considered the Magnum Opus of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I partially agree with the former statement. This is the magnum opus of the RHCP as we know them by 1991. The first 13 songs rock like hell, but starting with The Greeting Song, the RHCP provide their age old problem of filling the tail end of the album with unneeded and mediocre filler. Apache Rose Peacock isnt an album ender, but anything is better than ruining the last tracks of an album. I dunno, im not a fan of the last four tracks. It really brings the album down for me.

What surprised me about Stadium Arcadium is that there is none of the old 'Red Hot Filler' that plagues the second half of the album like in BSSM, Californication and By the Way. Sure there a 3 or 4 songs that I dislike, but for the peppers to pull of a 28 track double album like this blew me away. They pull from all of their styles, extreme funk to slow jam to an almost ballad-like approach. The first two songs are very easily the highlights of the album next to "Readymade", "Wet Sand", and the title track, but nearly ever song on here is enjoyable and well crafted. Another noticeable thing is that the amazing Frusciante /actually/ showcases his talent on more than one song. Unfortunately, that doesn't take away from the fact that there aren't enough great moments to outweigh the just good moments. Inevitably, the album consists of too many just "slightly-better-than-filler" tracks.

AC/DC Highway to Hell
AC/DC Back in Black
Being one of the best selling and most legendary albums of all time is more than enough reason to purchase this album. However, it's main notary is that AC/DC and Brian Johnson were able to come back from the devastating loss of Bon Scott with an even more powerful album than the last. Not to mention that Back In Black and You Shook Me All Night Long are amazing anthems which have become a pure definition of AC/DC and the 70's rock n' roll they represent (Irony aside of its '80 release). The difference between Back in Black and Highway to Hell is that this album doesnt have the consistent good filler songs that Highway to Hell had. Particularly Givin the Dog a Bone and What Do You Do For Money Honey are a foreshadowing of Johnson's weak and clichd lyrics later in the 80's. However, that aside, when the song was good...it was amazing, non-stop rock n' roll.

Eagles On the Border
When it comes down to this album, On the Border has some very nice tunes and catchy hooks, but all in all, the great songwriting ability of the Eagles doesn't always shine through. Too often do they find themselves rehashing the same old material, or they exhibit their obligation to a southern jam. Intended to be fun, they often drag and bore, losing at the song's most obvious purpose. The album is also often plagued with clich? unoriginal lyrics about love. Being from a time where love and women are all that is sung about in popular music, the Eagles contribute yet another album that would have been lost with the test of time had it not been for their future releases and great singles.

Nirvana Bleach
Bleach is an "Alright" album. It doesnt get more above average than this really when it comes to rock. It starts fairly solid with Blew and Floyd the Barber, then gives a more Alternative foreshadowing with About a Girl, and it slowly gets more and more mediocre. It helps that Nirvana made this, i'm sure, but the album isnt too exciting for non-Nirvana fans. Then again, for $600, i guess this record is a "masterpiece" in some retrospects. It also makes one wonder how Nirvana jumps from this album to their next Magnum Opus, Nirvana in just two short years. One has to wonder...

AC/DC Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
To me Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap is by all means equal in entertainment and playable to its predecessor High Voltage. It's title track along with Rocker are the stand out tracks, and overall the album seems to cohere better than High Voltage. However, there is no monstrously awesome song that serves as a climax or milestone in the album. Not to mention it has Squealer and Big Balls which brings the whole album down with its ineffective double entendres and almost annoying lyrics. Although this album receives high praise as their #3 release, I think it?s the weakest of Bon Scott's.
AC/DC High Voltage (International)
When it comes to straight up, hardcore, and simple rock n' roll, High Voltage is a milestone. First released in 1975, its main songs are quite catchy, memorable, and above all, exciting to listen to. AC/DC is awesome. But it suffers where they also lack. Depth. Little Lover and She's Got Balls are stupid lyrics with a decent riff behind them, and The Jack's cool blues theme barely boosts it to an above average song with its also shallow poker lingo. But with that aside, It's a Long way to the Top is one of AC/DC's most famous songs ever, along with personal favorites of TNT and High Voltage. When AC/DC does it right, they do it damn good.

Metallica ...And Justice for All
I'm sorry, i just finished this album again...start to finish...and these tracks seem to run all together and sound so similar. They weren't given the same effort, have the same beauty, and nothing memorable when it comes to hooks. The musicianship is amazing, and Kirk's solo's have never sounded so good, but once you get past that, there is really nothing deeper to find in the record. Everything is surface based.
Excluded from these thoughts are Blackened, the title track, and One of course. One is absolutely amazing. I think any Metal fan should purchase the album just for these tracks, but be prepared to grow tired of the recycled guitar sounds and riffs throughout the whole second half of the album.

MGMT Oracular Spectacular
Modest Mouse The Lonesome Crowded West
Muse Showbiz
A good starter album for Muse, one of my favorite bands by the way, but its problem is that its less of an album and more of a collection of songs. The flow lacks and its cohesiveness leaves a little to be wanted. Showbiz followed by Muscle Museum are the main stand out tracks, and the first nine songs stand fairly well seperately as songs, but the last three really lack. They are slow and plainly put, unentertainingmy main falldown with the album.
Muse Black Holes and Revelations
This album could have been great. Starlight through Map of the Problematique is absolutely killer to listen to. However my main problem with this album is firstly it alludes to the slow song overdose on Showbiz. Secondly, the political theme. There is a difference between a political song and a political album to me. A political song is one's opinion and holds the same weight as a girlfriend to that person at times, but a political album about their disproval over two guys seems really shallow. Take a Bow, Soldier's Poem, and Exo-Politics suffer because of the blatant overdose of hatred for these people rather than disagreement and their frustration with it. I don't take lightly on such shallow abuse of one's ability to communicate their ill-conceived opinions on something they really have no intelligence about. But that's just me. If you took a hacksaw to this and came out with six songs, it would be one of my favorite EP's ever, but not so much as an LP.

Red Hot Chili Peppers By the Way
This is worst and has most filler of all of the Red Hot Chili Pepper's albums with Frusciante. By the Way starts off with an absolutely stellar song, followed by another 5 great songs, and then hits a brick wall and remains average to above average at best (minus Venus Queen). By the Way also offers the most radio-friendly selection of songs (if RHCP weren't friendly enough), but this effort comes out as more of an entourage of half-baked slow songs for the RHCP. Don't get me wrong, they are good songs since Flea, Frusciante, and Chad Smith help make the Peppers possibly the most talented band of the '00's, but for the Peppers, they should also make music on par with their style and talent.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Mother's Milk
"A wide array of hardcore funk metal" is the best deion i can think of. Mother's Milk is fairly refined without really being precise. Johnny Frusciante guitar doesnt wail and doesnt melt your face off like he will in the future, but the rhythm and funk levels are still pretty spot on. Chad Smith and Flea are as excellent as ever, but the really problem is Anthony Keidis. He has yet to develop a singing voice, and for those fans of the later RHCP, this is a major turnoff. An even larger hindrance to the album's success is Keidis's lyrics. It doesn?t possess anything besides surface meaning, and the hooks of the fun songs are lacking. Not to mention there is a fair share of filler that seems rushed and not taken care of. Higher Ground is the obvious track pick, but besides that, you have to dig way too hard to find some other good music for non-funk fanboys.
