5.0 classic
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Dance Gavin Dance Downtown Battle Mountain
This album simply never gets old. Hands-down my favorite post-hardcore release. Shoot me.
Defeater Travels
Drake Take Care
Lydia Illuminate
A breathtakingly beautiful album. Recommended Tracks: This is Twice Now, Hospital, Stay Awake, and One More Day.
The Story So Far Under Soil and Dirt
Thrice Vheissu
Touche Amore/La Dispute Searching for a Pulse/The Worth of the World
Two of hardcore's most promising bands create a true masterpiece. The raw, passionate dual vocals perfectly compliment each other.

letlive. Fake History
Mayday Parade A Lesson In Romantics
The emotion in this album is truly remarkable. For better or for worse, it has become the anthem of my recent break-up. Catchy, sad, honest, and sincere, this is might be the best pop-punk album I've ever come across.
Of Machines As If Everything Was Held In Place
PVRIS White Noise

Dallas Green has a fantastic voice. That's pretty much all I have to say about that.
Closure in Moscow First Temple
Cold War Kids Behave Yourself
Cold War Kids Mine is Yours
Everything that you love about Cold War Kids, just a little more polished and grandiose. "Skip the Charades" is one of the best songs they've ever written.

Underoath Lost in the Sound of Separation
Underoath Disambiguation
An awesome album, I just feel that it's somewhat monotonous and lacks the climactic moments of DTGL and LITSOS (e.g. "I hope to god you come down" or "Good God can you still get us home?").
