Brand New Fight Off Your Demons (The Demos)
Brand New Daisy
This is the album that will make an amazing eruption and rift in brand new fans. Ones that are ready for change and a more heavy brand new, and ones who only loved the pop hook and indie of previous albums. It will separate the true fans from the "singles" fans.
Cave In Until Your Heart Stops
Circa Survive Blue Sky Noise
Like circa survive? You'll probably like this and some. Thats about it, its not going to change the people who never liked this band in the first place.

Well having heard all other dredg, I decided to finally check out this CD. Should've done that sooner, because this is my favorite and it reminds me of Coheed's first album. Fantastic stuff.

Pierce the Veil Collide with the Sky
Holy..... Mother OF....... JESUS C-..... < General reactions while listening to this album.
Take everything about the Pierce The Veil you knew and boost it by about 20. Best post-
hardcore album within the scene or prolly just period to come out in a long time. Loving it

Rx Bandits Mandala
Sublime. Musical Ecstasy. A bunch of ska kids taking their abundant talent to another level. All these things can be said about RX Bandits newest album. The only reason I can't give it a classic rating is because I still think they can pull off EVEN better. But for now, this is the music intended to be listened to by humans. So extremely recommended to lovers of any music.

Thursday No DevoluciĆ³n
Taking everything they have accomplished thus far, fusing it seamlessly into a wholly new
sound, and doing so effortlessly without a single hiccup to make for a near flawless album.
Brilliant.
Touche Amore/La Dispute Searching for a Pulse/The Worth of the World
Trophy Scars Bad Luck
Amazing. And I thought Hospital Music would never be touched or come close to by them. Bravo Trophy Scars, this is the album of a band that is in it for the music, not for the scene or money. A masterpiece, but only short of a classic because I still believe Trophy Scars can put out an even better album if they could go from Alphabets to this piece of musical bliss.

That's right. A fucking 4. I saw this band live tonight, and they put on one of the best shows I've ever seen. That, and this CD has some spectactular songs on it. This band has the work ethic, positive attitude, and the members are all down to earth and cool as shit. They are completely devoid of industry bullshit and being in it for the money, but are there for the fans. Call it a guilty pleasure, call it blasphemy, or whatever you want, but this is awesome.

this is really good. the musicians create a very compelling whirlwind of technicality and emotion that is just awesome, and the vocalist is kind of like la dispute's harsh vocals, but better imo.

From a Coheed fan's point of view, This album = Awesome. I am loving it, it just takes a few listens for some of the songs to really grow on you. The slower songs are interesting and never really boring, and everything else is straight up coheed at their best.

Awesome, their first was pretty decent but this is a great sophomore release. Like Aaron Moore said, parkway with cleans

I See Stars Digital Renegade
This album is the best I See Stars have to offer yet in their still relatively young life as a band. Everything has pretty much improved tenfold from previous albums and is executed with proficiency most of the time. Seems a bit underrated on this site, tbh.
