Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicA Tribe Called Quest The Low End TheoryAlexisonfire Watch Out!One of the finest post-hardcore albums of all time. The passion put into it makes it worth a five, but it's those little moments, like the beginning of "Sharks and Danger" or the almost ambient parts in "Happiness by the Kilowatt". It has this subtle energy, despite the screaming and raging guitars (which are incidentally excellent). It just feels...alive.At the Drive-In Relationship of CommandA tour-de-force of rock music. I don't care what Cedric Bixler-Zavala is saying, I don't care if the guitars are rather sloppy, or that the production isn't perfect. Those things are what makes this album hit me so hard; the fact that it's just rock in it's purest form. It makes a person move and yell and let all that shit that suburban life (which I'm assuming most of it's listeners experience) puts into you get released.Bon Iver For Emma, Forever AgoIf this album doesn't pull at your heartstrings...nothing will.Cursive DomesticaDeftones White PonyElliott Smith Either/OrFela Kuti ZombieFleet Foxes Helplessness BluesSuch a beautifully constructed, intelligent, poignant album. It just feels instantly familiar, almost as if they are singing directly to me. Amazing. It grows on you as well.. "Montezuma" is not only fantastic, in my mind, it is career-defining.

If this doesn't bring you down from the depths of despair to the highest of hopes, I don't know what will.Weezer Weezer4.5 superbAlexisonfire AlexisonfireAlexisonfire CrisisA more forceful effort than "Watch Out!". This has a singular purpose, to represent anger, but in different, interesting formats, from the brooding of "You Burn First" to the vitriol of "We Are The End".Alexisonfire Live At Birmingham AcademyAttack in Black MarriageBig Boi Sir Lucious Left FootBon Iver Bon Iver, Bon IverBright Eyes I'm Wide Awake, It's MorningBroken Social Scene Forgiveness Rock RecordCave In Planets Of Old City and Colour Bring Me Your LoveCity and Colour The MySpace Transmissions EPCity and Colour Little HellCunninLynguists OneirologyCursive The Ugly OrganDark Time Sunshine VesselDark Time Sunshine ANXDeerhunter Halcyon DigestDeftones Diamond EyesEl-P Cancer 4 CureFleet Foxes Fleet FoxesFlying Lotus Until the Quiet ComesFoo Fighters The Colour and the ShapeFrank Turner Love, Ire & SongFugazi RepeaterGrizzly Bear VeckatimestIncubus Make YourselfJanelle Monae The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III of IV)This is what music is about. Experimentation, passion and talent. Absolutely brilliant album by Monae, and she does what only the greats do; (Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, David Bowie, etc) she crosses over into all sorts of different styles while making it unique and special.

The fact of the matter is, these are a great collection of rock songs, with some of their catchiest and most accessible material to date. George may not sound great, but you can't scream like that for 8 years and expect to have a great voice can you? So stop hating it for what it isn't and start embracing it for what it is.Alexisonfire Dog's BloodAlien Ant Farm ANThologyAndy McKee JoylandAnimal Collective Merriweather Post PavilionJust listen to "In The Flowers".

It's like they took all the most mediocre parts from all the most mediocre bands in the genre, to make some kind of mediocre super-being.
