5.0 classic
Alice in Chains Dirt
Alter Bridge AB III
Arsis A Diamond for Disease
A rather fantastic slab of American melo-death that sadly was not built upon in subsequent albums. James Malone and Mike Van Dyne prove themselves to be more than competent at their respective instruments, creating a technical maelstrom of pummeling drums, shredding riffs and Malone's signature shriek.

Teeheehee Rainbow Stab Brain Bubbles
Forget any misconceptions you may have about this album. Leave them at the door and allow Teeheehee Rainbow Stab take you on a journey; a journey that not only reveals the album's true nature, but also teaches you things about yourself you never knew. The cover's subtly manic appeal juxtaposes perfectly against the soothing aural pleasure that awaits you. The name itself is full of wonder and mystery, of a time and place where juvenile whimsy is commonplace and where dreams come true to give breath to your every thought. Where the world fits, and where love abounds in even the shadows.rIn short, don't believe the hype. The hype will never measure up to the amount of praise Brain Bubbles is due. Instead, with an open mind, press play and receive something that even the albums grandest in scope never achieve: a majestic adventure. Eat your heart out, Tolkien.
Tourniquet Psycho Surgery
Training for Utopia Plastic Soul Impalement
Uncompromisingly heavy, Ryan Clark's vocal performance easily matches many of the metalcore elite. To think he moved on to Demon Hunter is a shame. Absolute classic for the metalcore genre, and a great reminder of what solidstate was.

This album is simply amazing. While the minimal beats, sparse instrumentation and thin production might speak of low quality, the opposite couldn't be more true. The instrumentation isn't the focus here. The focus is on Slug's heartfelt lyrics that cut through the bullshit and define his murky schism between loving and hating. This isn't Eminem's shock-based hatred of Kim. This is the result of immense heartbreak, and the deeply bipolar feelings that lay within. It is a journey through the fractured mind of a grieving Slug, one that can elicit deep feelings of sympathy (or perhaps empathy) from the pure emotion he pours into the music. In my opinion, this is the soundtrack to a breakup. EDIT: after re-reading this...it is extremely gay, but damn if it isn't exactly how I still feel.

Yet another solid entry from this thrash standby. The musicianship is topnotch as always, and the song writing has improved from the often plodding nature of Most and Rust. The lyrics and vocals are still far from the peak of Psychosurgery, but Luke Easter continues to grow more comfortably into his range, though tone is still an acquired taste. In any case, the most redeemable aspect of Tourniquet is still the brilliantly composed instrumentation which after all these years hasn't seen worthy competition.

Blake Lewis Audio Daydream
Perhaps one of the most unique contestants to ever grace American Idol, Blake Lewis sadly dilutes his talents for Top 40 drivel that fails to deliver even his signature beatboxing. Some tracks do save this album from complete mediocrity, but it's much too little much too late. Hopefully, a little more leash will allow him to branch out and find his own niche on the CD rack.

Circle Takes the Square As the Roots Undo
This album comes across as empty, but not intentionally. There is a strict disconnect between the album and the listener. I suppose the heart of the problem is that I don't "get" it; the pretension and avant-garde vocals irreparably degrade the music. As the Roots Undo isn't so much an earnest musical expression, as it is an experiment in excess and indulgence. As I search for a metaphor for this album, a single word comes to mind: faux. Faux is a French word, meaning fake or false. It carries connotations of upper-crust verbiage and men in bowler hats exclaiming Capital! It fits the album insofar as it is nothing that hasn't been said better and more concisely, without the affectation. Like many who use that word for the sake of using that word, they aim high yet hit low. Songs like "Kill the Switch" show the best of Circle Takes the Square and what they can be, while other tracks are plagued by chaotic structuring, generally horrendous vocals and rambling lyrical concepts. To say I hate As the Roots Undo would be a false (faux?) assessment. I enjoy what this group does when they do it well. Sadly though, Circle Takes the Square had too high of aspirations and too low of effort.
