|BATS Cruel Sea Scientist|
|Big Boi Sir Lucious Left Foot|
|Bon Iver For Emma, Forever Ago|
Where is it in music and what does it bring to the table with the music you are trying to create?
Soul is easily in this short master piece by Bon Iver "For Emma, Forever Ago" this album is a man naked for everyone to see singing his heart out and adding more soul into music than my ears have been graced with.
The only problem I have with this record is it is way too short with only 30 minutes to send you into a cloud.
Soul, do you have it?
|Boys Night Out TrainWreck|
|This is so close to a five for one of my top mathy pop-punk albums. Minus a few moments in Recovering or just the song in general this album is still as great as it was five years ago. |
|Capsule (US) Blue|
|Converge Axe to Fall|
|Go Converge! Go! I really shouldn't have to say too much. This album is on par with Jane Doe though. |

|Finch (US) Say Hello to Sunshine|
|Say Hello to Sunshine, with a title like this you'd expect a What it is to Burn pt.II, but Finch has blessed us with a completely reworked evil sound. This cd is a decent into everything that we refuse to say, it is the insanity in all of us which we say isn't there. A good 75% of Finch's old fans have disowned this band because of this transational cd and by all means this is no sophomore slump. Sadly sometime after Finch released this cd they broke up. Three years of waiting for this and more waiting after for their break up and they are now a band again.|
Say Hello to Sunshine everyone. It shines down on all of us in our darkest hours.

|Goodie Mob Soul Food|
|Enter Goodie Mob, (Cee-Lo, Khujo, T-Mo Goodie, and Big Gipp) a dungon family hip-hop/southern rap group which use a wide viarity of styles and southern rap to display very conscious lyrics.|
Songs: Soul Food, Dirty South, and Cell Therapy are the singles of the album and are definatly amazing choices to choose from. Guests Witchdoctor and Outkast are all over the album and make it that much more of a better experience into the world of Goodie Mob. Filler really is my only problem with the album even though the filler is alright to listen to sometimes. A very standout album that is more than just gangster rap, that is just a facade used to tell their stories. Goodie Mob ='s the GOOD DIE Mostly Over Bullshit

|Kayo Dot Blue Lambency Downward|
|Wow, where to begin with this? I feel as if i've listened to this enough times to give a breif oppion, but I believe my bad grammar and spelling will do this an injustice. This album is more or less an experience, personaly I kind of figured the band would go in this direction. |
Kayo Dot is expiermenting with different sounds and wandering away from their old "Metal" tag they were pinned with. Finding Toby Driver now focusing on composing material which sounds like modern day classical music, instead with crushing guitars and an assortment of other insturments carfuly and curisouly displaying their moments to shine and guide you through this monster of an album.
If you think Kayo Dot without the heavieness will be interesting the definly check it.
|Kid Cudi A Kid Named Cudi|
|Kid Cudi's mixtape "A Kid Name Cudi" has been an eye opener since Day N' Night got super early airplay on my local radio station in Mobile, Alabama. Cudi definatly wears his influences on his sleeve and chooses to display them in his own fashion which he crafts in a very infectious manner. Using samples from: Outkast, Band of Horses, J Dilla, N.E.R.D. and many more this mixtape is crafted with what seems like enough care to kill us all with kindness. From start to finish this mixtape flows with a vibe thats honest and with some work can easily top his influences whom he can play off of so wonderfuly.|

|Margot & the Nuclear So and So's The Daytrotter Sessions EP|
|With this fine stripped E.P. Margot have used one old song and four new ones. All stripped down to an acoustic feel, with the bare essentials used. A mixture of Curisive, Bright Eyes, Arcade Fire, and other class Indie artists with a soul that hasn't been in music for a while.|

|Minus the Bear Planet of Ice|
|Planet of Ice by, Minus the Bear is a remarkable effort and jump from their previous full length Menos El Oso.|
Trading in their happy go lucky riffs in for some darker, ambiant tones MtB have brought their vison to ears. Throwin Shapes and Knights will keep the old listeners around with their catchy ear candy, but songs such as Lotus and Double Vision Quest contain a more prog sound with Lotus clocking in as one of their longest songs to date.
There is some wrong though with this album, the songs Knights is just another MtB song, the only thing that saves it is the half way point when the guitars start to soar. Throwin' Shapes also should of just been on Menos El Oso, just re-hashed mateiral.
All and all though this is a very nice improvement for the boys in MtB and I cannot wait to hear their next album concieved.

The first half of this cd is Russian Circles bringing the most emotion out of their insturments they ever have so far.
While the second half is standard RS goodness.

The cd is made up of 4 movements that all form one long song.
The cd is breathtaking, even though i've only listened to it a few times.
Cannot wait to see more from this group.

|What the guy said about Dude Ranch. This band is magical with super refrences to The Upsides all over this.|
|Trophy Scars Bad Luck|
|With "Bad Luck" Trophy Scars bring about a concept becides using A's and being very ambiguous about it's meaning.|
"Bad Luck" has many differnet styles used on it, also many different insturments. Piano is now fully played in just about every song, and at times they just don't sound like the Trophy Scars I grew up with. Jer's voice is very gruff in this album and he screams less than before.
But does that make this bad?
Listen to it and decide for yourself.
|Trophy Scars Never Born, Never Dead|
|Trophy Scars will never fail me. Keeping this newly aquired sound instead of their post-hardcore roots and improving upon this building sound. The real question is, "Where the fuck is the full length at?"|
|United Nations United Nations|
|After the Burial In Dreams|
|Animal Collective Sung Tongs|

|As Cities Burn Hell Or High Water|
|If they are broken up at least they did it with one last good album. An interesting beginning to a post-hardcore band and an extremely interesting ending for this wonderful band. If they haven't broken up and it's just rumors then wonderful.|
Love for the ACB
|B.o.B B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray|
|Out of Drake, Cudi, Asher Roth, and Wale honestly B.o.B. is the most experimental artist and thats what he really is, an artist.|
Bobby Ray(B.o.B.) Vs himself in the mixtape where half of it is the spitting of B.o.B. which is very fantastic with his andre3k vibe he's got going on. The Bobby Ray side is more of the experimental side with him playing acoustic guitar, using more pop orientated beats, but still rapping in places.
Not a mixtape to pass up or a fresh new face in hip-hop.
|Blink-182 Enema of the State|
|Brand New Daisy|
|Wow, Brand Nizzle with energy. |
Oh how i've longged for an opening such as the shower scene.
This cd is gonna make all the lovey dovey brand new kids cry and the fans whom love their experimentation pushing loving them even more so.
And the Grungey feeling behind his voice fuck that, I hear Isac Brock from MM more than a peral jam grunge.
This cd is epic. Gives me the shivers

|Drake So Far Gone|
|Enter the world of Drake, once an actor now diving into the world of hip-hop with an amazing mixtape to start it off right. Drake can sing, rap, and do Lil' Wayne better than Mr. Carter can do for himself. November 18, Successful, Uptown, Say Whats Real, and many others on this cd slam the speakers and subs, while Drake himself sings/raps about the women in his life, the cars he drives, and the live he is surrounded by everyday. He is the Yang to Kid Cudi's Yen. Thank god hip-hop is starting to look a little better in the mainstreem.|
|Drake Thank Me Later|
|Drake presents himself as best as he can for his first album released. This album is far better than any cudi, wale, asher roth, etc....|
Shit has soul.
|Earl Sweatshirt EARL|
|East of the Wall Farmer's Almanac|
|Saw this in it's entirity almost last night at a Local Mississppi coast bar that has never had a metal band and apparently Elvis use to get shitty drunk there. Makes sense. Great band.|
|Faraquet The View From This Tower|
|Before I listened to Damiera my best friend who joined the navy put this on my "listening list," he said this and "Kidcrash" were essencital albums that I had to listen to.|
Great riffing, interesting drumming and great vocals.
|Give up the Ghost We're Down Til We're Underground|
|One of the best Incabus albums. Everyone on their insturments does an insane job and for once Mr. Boyd does his part extremely well with his insanity vocals.|
Drop all the other cd's by this band and keep this one in rotation, and pass the blunt to the left
|Kid Cudi Man On The Moon: The End Of Day|
|Not a perfect debut album, but leaves plenty room for improvement. Cudi is more of an experimental hip-hop artist|
anyway, always has been since his first mixtape stoner charm.
|Kid Cudi Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager|
|Kidcrash is a band that reminds me of all the brilliant minds in the "Screamo" "Indy" "Punk" (or whatever you want to call it ) genres comming together for a second chance at a younger music generation.|
The raw recording feel behind it for me at least gives off a more emotional feel behind the music.
The singing and the music are almost balanced, there isn't one outweighting the other.
There were a few things about this album I kinda scratched my head at.
While the vocals are steller on this record they are very monotonus keeping the same range, while this isn't something i'm going to rant about it was a small tick.
I also felt the record went on too quickly, by the time I started it and got sucked in it was over like that.
The one member in this band though that keeps me comming back to the record constantly is the drummer, this man is a beast compared to their record, "New Ruins" which they apparently had a bunch of problems with.
All and all this band is something to look out for in the future.
|Lil Wayne No Ceilings|
|mewithoutYou It's All Crazy! It's All False!|
|It's still mwY just a little more overly religious.|
And if you have knowticed anything about the bands progression, this is their next natural step they would end up taking.
Accept this for what it is and enjoy it like they made it just for you

|I'm all about some laid back vibes and chill music, so hearing the TMV's new album was going to be "Acoustic" I was completely drawn in. While not acoustic as you've very well read, it has that "Chill" "laid-back" vibe. Like it or not this album still sits very well in the end leaving you to determin if the experience the band put you on was worth it or not.|
Yes it was for me.
