Sort by: Rating | Release Date | Rating Date | Name5.0 classicBon Iver For Emma, Forever AgoAn album you can't really explain since for every listener it will mean something different
to them. Justin Vernon has done something amazing with For Emma, Forever Ago, as
every listener wishes they had there first listen of the album everytime they pressed play.
The depresive tones are quite obvious on For Emma, as the album is full of
heartbreak, but that should not deter listeners from this amazing masterpiece. Bon Iver Bon Iver, Bon IverWell fuck me dead. This is almost worth more than any sort of hyperbolic claims that it will receive i.e. give it shit loads. Death Cab for Cutie TransatlanticismBeauty, awe, inspiration, sadness, desperation, love and loss. These are just some of the words that come to mind when listening to Transatlanticism. An album that captures your heart and yanks at it until you give in. Hey Rosetta! SeedsKimbra The Golden EchoMiles Davis Kind of BlueKind Of Blue is a remarkable album of awe inspiring beauty and amazing musicianship, thus leading us into one of the most influetial jazz albums of all time. Miles Davis creates an amazing aura with his playing sending goose bumps though you each time you listen. Miles Davis Bitches BrewThe album that I grew up with. It took many years of listening over and over for this album to settle in my head as one of the most fantastic creations in the music industry. Dabbling into large amounts of experimentation, this Miles Davis goes where no-one else had. Bitches Brew is an effort, but pays off immensely.Paul Dempsey Everything Is TrueIt's always great when a fabulous front man from a fabulous band decides to go solo. Paul Dempsey has done just that, with his debut solo effort in Everything Is True. A folk/rock tinged album full of wonderful ballads and some slightly rockier tunes, Dempsey has created a wonderful album that will be high up at the end of the year. Rise Against The Sufferer and the WitnessWhat can be said? This album grabs you hook, line and sinker from the opening minutes. The tracks run smoothly into each other with all being as catchy and a great listen as the last!Sigur Ros Takk...Sigur Ros, probably the most innovative and respected band in the Post Rock world. Takk... proves why they are the masters with some amazingly beautiful melodies and rip roaring hooks, an album for the ages. Something For Kate The Official FictionAh, the bliss of Something For Kate's The Official Fiction is something to behold.
While it may not be the most upbeat album, it certainly gives you a surprise with the
sorrowful tones, but is quite heartfelt in it's delivery. An album that I truly adore. Something For Kate Beautiful SharksSomething For Kate reach perfection with their sophomore release Beautiful Sharks.
The album is full of tender hooks and wistful melodies, and sees Paul Dempsey at the height of his lyrical conviction. Every song hits home and tells a tale that nearly everyone can connect to. Beautiful Sharks is one of my all time favorites. The Gaslight Anthem The '59 SoundCatchy and never letting down, The 59' Sound sums up what good rock should sound
like. The Gaslight Anthem have successfully created an album that has inspired a generation
with their brand of hook laden rock, while also borrowing from the greats of yester-year,
The 59' Sound will always keep you coming back for more. The Tallest Man on Earth The Wild HuntI could roll you to hell, I could swim from your heavens
I could drive you so safe, I could walk you to here4.5 superbArcade Fire FuneralFuneral is an album that hits you hard, but is gentle on your ears, making it a
magical experience everytime you begin listening to it. Arcade Fire have meshed together
perfectly rounding out a sound so lusty and loving that you can't help but swoon when the
album plays through. Art Blakey Moanin'Art Blakey is one of the big names in Jazz. While Moanin'
isn't one of his better releases, it was certainly a landmark in Bop Jazz and no Jazz collection should be with out this album.Carus Acoustic At The NorfolkAn essiential for every lover of folk, blues and reggae music. Carus mixes all of these genres together and makes one the most upbeat and saddening albums. For a live album this one of the best.Charles Mingus The Black Saint and the Sinner LadyThe Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is just one of those masterpieces that only come around so often. The Black Saint... offers so much for the lover of jazz, from mind bending melodic section to the epic time changes and syncapations. One must be ready to expect everything and anything from this record.Damien Rice OEddie Vedder Into The Wild [Music For The Motion Picture]Elliott Smith XOEminem The Marshall Mathers LPFoals Total Life Foreverfuck, just listen to that guitar tone.
totes magotesFoals Holy FireSeriously, Holy Fire this is good. Inhale(r) this air and give me a buzz about how good it is on My Number on this
Late Night. Lols AOTY Frank Ticheli Sanctuary EPIf there ever was a piece of music that moved me, it's this. Sanctuary is a 12 minute journey to the centre of your heart, filling the voids that gape there with large amounts of emotion and testing your view of the way you feel it, be it sorrowful or emotion of immense joy. It is really open for the listener to perceive. Grizzly Bear VeckatimestVeckatimest, could almost be the perfect album. Having obvious pop roots, the album
varies from slow melodic tracks, with hauntingly beautiful melodies and harmonies to the
straight up pop tracks like 'Two Weeks'. Grizzly Bear have easily produced one of the best
albums of the year and Veckatimest has
definitely lived up to the hype. Grizzly Bear ShieldsHoward Shore The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journeyholy flipping heck this soundtrack is brilliant. Connecting themes from the LoTR trilogy,
and underlying the characters motifs, with their future self is a complete highlight. Howard
Shore is untouchable when it comes to middle earth. The Riddles in the Dark use of the
History of the Ring (found in the Fellowship) is charmingly brilliant. Jake Bugg Jake BuggJames Blake James BlakeJames Blake OvergrownJeff Buckley GraceJeff Buckley is a man that people swoon over all around the world, and Grace is an album that I swoon over myself. Buckley's amazing voice is the essential element to Grace as it lifts and soars above any other vocalists. Grace is a landmark album, and it is such a shame that we could not see what this marvelous man could conjure up for his next release. John Coltrane A Love SupremeJohn Mayer ContinuumJohn Mayer tugs and pulls at all those strings that belong at your heart. Mayer twists your arm to the tender hooks of that fender strat oh manJohn Mayer Where the Light IsJustin Timberlake The 20/20 ExperienceJustin Vernon HazeltonsBefore Justin Vernon founded the fantastic, Bon Iver, he released this gem. Hazeltons
is an amazing look into the varying amount of stylist variations Vernon can create, as well
as writing some of the most hauntingly beautiful songs I have heard. A definite must for
fans of For Emma, Forever AgoKanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted FantasyKarnivool Sound AwakeKarnivool's sophomore release Sound Awake is truly an epic. While it doesn't have
the hooks that Themata possesed it still drags you in and makes you listen over and
over again. It is a much more progressive album, though this doesn't deter the listener as
it draws you in after each play.A fabulous album that any prog/rock fan will enjoy. Kevin Houben ArcanaLone Wolf The Devil and IM83 Hurry Up, We're DreamingMetallica S&MMiles Davis In a Silent WayIn A Silent Way is one of those albums that make you think, and appreciate the music that you are hearing. Miles Davis delivers once again with his potent mix of darkness and beauty forming one of the most prominent jazz releases of our time. Davis is only out done by his own work in, Bitches Brew and Kind of Blue.Miles Davis Sketches of SpainWhile not being Davis' most well known releases, it is certainly one of his best. it may not live up to the standards of Kind of Blue, Bitches Brew and In A Silent Way but it definitely puts its best foot forward. Taking well known spanish folk songs, and turning them in to Jazz numbers, Davis has done a brilliant job. Millencolin Pennybridge PioneersMillencolin Home From HomeAn album that really brought me out of the pop culture, Home From Home remains a very honest album, yet features some of the best punk hooks around. Modest Mouse Good News for People Who Love Bad NewsMuse Origin of SymmetryMuse AbsolutionMuse hit their straps with the perfectly round 'Absolution.'
The album doesn't contain one filler track (albeit the Intro/Interlude) and keeps you hooked all the way from the opening to the dying seconds of 'Ruled By Secrecy'. Easily Muses coming of age.O'Brother The Death of DayO' Brother is a band that is just to hard to classify in a single genre. They have the catchy hooks of Emery, deep yet sinister harmonies of Mono and melodies that could almost have been written by angels. The Death of Day is truly an awe inspiring album.Paul Kelly Songs From The SouthPaul Kelly is the epitome of Australian music. He writes tales and fables into his compositions. From the lush hooks, to the sorrowfull ballads that make you feel the pain of the protaginist. Songs From The South is the greatest hits collection and is a splendoured rendition to every cd collectors shelf. Powderfinger Odyssey Number FiveRadical Face GhostRelient K MmhmmAt the tender age of 14/15, this album was my life, it brought me through those tough discovery moments and difficult times with girls. It was the album that made life fun, and epitomised summer fun so well. Mmhmm is full of poppy and catchy songs that have meaning after meaning attached to it how ever you perrcieve the album, and each listerner can take something different out of it. Rise Against Siren Song of the Counter CultureThe change that Rise Against made with large risk has worked wonders for this band. Their first major label release is almost a perfect album. Mixing hardcore roots with some of the best hooks around, this album will be spinning for years to come.Robert Rumbelow Night: The Holocaust These three movements could be some of the most haunting and tormenting pieces of music ever recorded by a symphonic band. The three movements based on Elle Weisel's book, Night, delve into the story of the holocaust in three separate parts. The first movement, 'The Evening Air' is very blunt and dark in it's themes, while the second movement 'The Faith of a Child' is about the hope left within Elle, though the third movement 'Darkness Descends' removes all faith, in one of the most darkest destructions of Elle's life with him witnessing the death of his parents. Night is dark in it's themes yet a pleasure to listen to. S. Carey All We GrowSigur Ros Med sud i eyrum vid spilum endalaustTo me this is Sigur Ros at the uttermost pinnacle. While ( ) is considered by some the best album, the variation and hooks of me? su? ? eyrum vi? spilum endalaust make it much more outstanding and different to anything the band has done previously. From the soothing falsetto voice to the magical orchestral arrangements, Sigur Ros have produced one of those albums that are just mesmerizing,unforgettable and will stick with you forever.Silje Nes OpticksA quaint and stunning mix of vocals, guitar and post rock-esque flourishes make this simple
minded album an aroma that keeps you in wonder and amazement. Opticks is infused with
blissful melodies that raise the hair on the back of your neck, and keep you swooning for
more. Silversun Pickups Swoon2009 has showed that the Silversun Pickups can top an almost topless record.
Swoon is an the sophomore release from the quartet, and is an album that encompasses
many things; be it the beautiful melodies, shoegaze heavy mid sections of the interesting
but perfect voice of Brain Aubert. Swoon contains no filler, and really rockets along
with up tempo track highlights like 'Panic Switch' and 'The Royal We', plus the gentle
'Catch & Release'. Somehow the Silversun Pickups have outdone themselves, by topping an
extremely impressive debut, and writing one of the
best album of 2009. Silversun Pickups CarnavasA mix of Indie and Grunge. Who would have thought? Though Silversun Pickups do the said experiment the perfect justice with Carnavas. An album heavily influenced by shoegaze and indie genres, it hits the spot perfectly. Something For Kate Leave Your Soul To ScienceCan they do wrong? Apparently not. The Avalanches Since I Left YouThe Beatles Abbey RoadThe Cat Empire Live On EarthLive on Earth is The Cat Empire's first live album, and what a beauty it is! The instrumentation is tight and the vocals are splendid which mix together to create one of the most fantabulous live albums. Major highlights are the cover of Paul Kelly's "Dumb Things" and The Eagles "Hotel California"(Performed in French at the Montereal Jazz Fest)The Gaslight Anthem HandwrittenThe Jezabels Dark StormPretty much just a big swell of an omnipresent emotive evocation-esque like being.rThe Jezabels PrisonerThe Killers Hot FussThe Middle East The Recordings of the Middle EastProbably the best folk release since For Emma, Forever Ago. The Middle East's sound is absolutely stunningly beautiful. A mix between folk, indie and the odd post rocky feel The Recordings of the Middle East is a superb album.The Tallest Man on Earth Shallow GraveThe Tallest Man on Earth There's No Leaving NowThere's No Leaving Now needed to encapsulate and engage his audience, to take his music to
the next level. He has done this, but to the level beyond anything we could expect. These New Puritans Field of ReedsTitus Andronicus The MonitorTrespassers William Different StarsUgly Casanova 180 Degrees SouthSuperb film and a superb soundtrack also. Conquerors of the Useless is possible the best ideology ive heard in a willVarious Artists (Indie) Dark Was The NightProbably the greatest collaboration to ever be created, Dark Was The Night is 31
tracks with not one bit of filler, making an exceptional listen, featuring some of the best
indie and folk artists going around. Whitley The Submarine4.0 excellentAlcest ShelterIt's like that burst of cool wind at the end of a hot summers eve, cooling you down after a stressful pent up day. Magical, haunting and breezy.Alexisonfire Watch Out!Anberlin CitiesCities was the first Anberlin album I listened to, and I wish I hadn't. Mainly because they will have to write something incomprehendably good to better Cities. Every song is gripping and all build into the beautiful closer, (*fin). A highly recommended album.Anberlin Dark Is the Way, Light Is a PlaceAnberlin brings a whole new menu to the table, batter to the plate, washing to the line, bowler to the crease, honey to the bear, potato to the gravy with Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place. And it tastes goooood. Andrew Boysen Jr. A Song For LyndsayÁsgeir In The SilenceBand of Horses Everything All the TimeBaths CeruleanBirds Of Tokyo UniversesBliss N Eso Flying ColoursBluejuice ProblemsBluejuice Head of The HawkBluejuice aren't your usual band. They combine many different genres together and create their own unique kind of music. Head of The Hawk is the bands second release, and what a release it is. Combining all the elements that made their previous album, Problems, so good but dropping the hip hop feel, Head of The Hawk is a more ska/funk tinged album and is worthy of a high placing for album of the year. Bon Iver Blood BankBon Iver Bon Iver In The StudiosBrand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside MeThere really isn't much wrong with this record. The soaring melodies, they punchy bridges, the variance in styles or just the pure emotion coming from the band. The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me is one of those records that hit close to home and bring roar emotion from band to listener.

Jamie T Kings and QueensWhile drawing away from his hip hop roots, Jamie T has produced some great indie/folk music that fans from his previous work Panic Prevention will still be able to enjoy. Some hip hop influences still exists, though they are not as strong. Though where Kings and Queens really shines is with its folk based songs, which are quite fantastic. Japandroids Post-NothingPost-Nothing is an album that draws you in from the first listen, yet doesn't seem to wear or get old. Japandroids are a simple two piece garage rock band, who would have thought that this formula could create an album with so many catchy elements and fantastic hooks?Japandroids Celebration RockJohn Butler Trio Sunrise Over SeaKanye West Late RegistrationKarnivool ThemataAn Australian band with the mostest.

Kidcrash JokesKimbra VowsKings of Leon Come Around SundownCome Around Sundown is what you call a double take. After the stadium rock sounds and rmass following of Only By The Night we were all expecting another step in that rdirection, but yet, Kings of Leon have given us an album that is probably something that you rcould only dream of, an album that is probably one of the best rock offerings in a long rtime.

The Cat Empire So Many NightsThe Cat Empire The Cat EmpireThe Gaslight Anthem American SlangTo steal a line from The '59 Sound, we all had 'the greatest expectations' coming into the release of American

Conditions is so good with it's wistful harmonies, soaring vocals and guitar delay pedal wankery that it is probably the best sugar coated rock album to be released this year other than fun.'s effort. Conditions is a stellar pop record that gets multiple replays. The Weeknd Echoes of SilenceTim Minchin Ready For This?

Let It ReindeerRise Against Appeal to ReasonWhile not hitting the nail on the head like they did with their previous efforts, Appeal rTo Reason is a quality album featuring some of the greatest songs Rise Against have rwritten to date, with 'Savior' being one of them. Though they will need to change it up for rthe next album since they have been getting away with the same formula for to long now.

Green Day American IdiotHanson Shout It OutHot Chip One Life StandKesha AnimalKings of Leon Only By The NightKlaxons Surfing the VoidMemphis May Fire Memphis May FireMemphis May Fire, a band connecting the difference between Underoath and Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster create a southern/metalcore sound that disapoints in varying areas. Though shines in many others, giving this band a bright future. Motion City Soundtrack Even If It Kills MeOh, Sleeper When I Am GodReel Big Fish Everything SucksWhile it was the sporning of some of Reel Big Fish's greatest songs, the recording is dodgey, giving it a luck lustre sound to other albums. Thankfully RBF re - recorded tracks like 'Beer' and 'Hate You' on later releases. Secret And Whisper Teenage FantasySwitchfoot Nothing is SoundThe Amity Affliction High HopesA mediocre EP from the band The Amity Affliction shows that they have room to grow, and have
a bright future ahead of them. High Hopes is full of catchy metalcore breakdowns but
is let down by generic melodic sections and boring interludes. Though it proves that the
Australian metalcore scene has opened right up. The Amity Afflictions next release will most
likely be better, and could be something great. The Cat Empire CinemaThe Devil Wears Prada With Roots Above and Branches BelowThe Rocket Summer Of Men and AngelsA let down to his previous work in Do You Feel. Was hoping for this to be super awesome but it is super average. Them Crooked Vultures Them Crooked VulturesThe hype of this band has made the output quite disapointing, yes it may be the one of the better super groups to come out of the decade, though the music just does not live up to the standard of the members. Them Crooked Vultures is just, well, Average. 2.0 poorAsking Alexandria Stand Up and ScreamAttack Attack!

Gravity.Switchfoot Hello HurricaneTexas in July Salt Of The EarthA metalcore band that takes it's inspiration from August Burns Red to the extreme, and make a complete cookie cutter representation of them. Not showing quite the musicianship that August Burns Red have, making it quite a boring, repetitive and unexciting listen.The Devil Wears Prada PlaguesWhat could be said about Plagues? Well for one thing, it is an improvement on The
Devil Wears Prada's debut LP release, which is not really the greatest of achievements.
Using the same silly formula of ridiculous song names and breakdown, verse, chorus, verse,
breakdown, chorus, outro song structure, this is an album you should avoid like the
plague...The Red Shore Lost VersesThe Word Alive EmpireAnother band on the Fearless record label that is mediocre at best. While having a very
talented bunch of guitarists, The Word Alive doesn't bring anything new to the table for the
genre of metalcore/post hardcore, and what they are doing, they are not doing well. This
band is a prime example for the generic metalcore statement, for a generic genre. Underoath They're Only Chasing SafetyWolfmother Cosmic EggAfter much hope for the bands second release, as soon as the album was titled I knew my hope would have to be strong. Unfortunately for me Wolfmother have failed to change their ways, and produce a howler of an album in, Cosmic Egg1.5 very poorA Day to Remember HomesickAnimal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilionthis is really good, lol jk it's animal collectiveAvenged Sevenfold Avenged SevenfoldBlessthefall WitnessAll the songs sound the same and are so repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative repetative...Devendra Banhart Oh Me Oh My ...Evermore Real LifeEvermore are an annoying group of New Zealand wannabe rock stars that produce some of the most irritating music that I have ever head. While they may have the catchy song now and again, it doesn't bring anything different to the table. Real Life is a snooze fest of attempted hooks and awkward melodies. One to stay away from. Haim Days Are GoneWhat annoys me is that nasally voice, it's like attack of the boogers or some shit Isles and Glaciers The Hearts of Lonely PeopleJet Shaka RockJet, my dear what have you done to yourself? From a debut album that was quite successful, Jet have fallen out of the formula that made them catchy and fun to listen to. Shaka Rock is full of obviously poor attempts to hook the listener in, but fails miserably due to it's poor execution. Oh, Sleeper Son Of The MorningWhen I listened to When I Am God I felt that Oh Sleeper had me fairly engaged, though
I still found it a very hashed attempt at a metalcore release. Son Of The Morning, is
well... just a woeful try at being different to the usual, and it fails miserably and lacks
the punch that When I Am God was able to include with a few of its tracks. One Direction Take Me Home1.5 because Harry Styles has stolen Taylor Swift from me. Get a haircut dick. I will love
her like none other. Suicide Silence The CleansingThe Devil Wears Prada Dear Love: A Beautiful DiscordTokio Hotel Humanoid1.0 awfulKevin Rudd The Milky Bar KidThis album is so bad that its like being stabbed in the back by a red head over and over...
c what i did thar?Lindsay Lohan A Little More Personal (Raw)A woeful attempt at creating music. Lindsay Lohan hits the epitome of low with this release.
The album is also aptly titled and connects perfectly with her personality... Lmfao Party RockOut of curiosity I gave this a listen. DON'T BE CURIOUS. Reel Big Fish Greatest Hit... And MoreAn album created by Reel Big Fish's old record label to try and gain money from them leaving, since they owned rights to a few of their songs. Reel Big Fish themselves put out a press release stating that this record should not be purchased. What also makes this horrible is that JIVE records has tried to re-master the songs involved and in doing so have stuffed up the pitch of the horn section, and made the record a very mish mash sounding work.
