Bomb the Music Industry! Vacation
Best opener to an album ever. Best closer to an album ever. Best album ever.
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
I'm not really sure if it's fair to call Brand New a pop punk band. At least, not with this album. Setting them apart from every band out there, The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me skyrocket Brand New into perfection.
Cap'n Jazz Analphabetapolothology
Deer Leap/The World Is A Beautiful Place... Are Here To Help You
Deftones White Pony
Rest in Peace Chi Cheng. This album is ultimately superior to anything else that has been released in a while.
Frank Turner Love, Ire & Song
Frank Turner can just make you feel good. Doesn't matter the mood you're in, sad, angry, depressed, you pop in Frank and he will turn(er) your frown upside down.
Kendrick Lamar good kid, m.A.A.d city
From start to finish a triumph, not just for rap, but for music in general. Kendrick shows the world what he's made of, and along the way, isn't afraid to be himself, breaking from the generic "fuck bitches get money" song content and building a world full of wonderful story telling and excellent music.
La Dispute Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...
I think I saw you in my sleep, darling. I think I saw you in my dreams you were stitching up the seams on every broken promise that your body couldn't keep. I think I saw you in my sleep. OH! I thought I heard the door open, OH NO! thought I heard the door open but I only heard it close. I thought I heard a plane, crashing. But now I think it was your passion snap-ing. I think you saw me, confronting my fear, it went up with the bottle and went down with the beer and. I think you outta stay away from here there are ghosts in the walls and they crawl in your head through your ears. I think I saw you in my sleep, LOVER, I think I saw you in my dreams you were stitching up the seams on every mangled promise that your body couldn't keep. I think I...saw you in my...dreams. (dum dum, da, duh duh da, duh duh dum dum, dah, duh duh dum da duh dum dum)
Modest Mouse The Moon & Antarctica
Everything that keeps us together is fallin' apart, I got this thing that I consider my only art of fuckin' people over.
Porcupine Tree Fear of a Blank Planet
Okay Steven Wilson, we get it, you're basically a god among men. Go make more music please.
Say Anything ...Is a Real Boy
I have a lot of sound-offs. Mainly because when I first came to this site, I figured I'd put them on every single album I ever rated. Also because Sputnik won't let you remove them. All that aside, Id my shitty sound-off for this album and have decided to replace it with this. I like this album.
Stars of the Lid And Their Refinement Of The Decline
Eerily fantastic. This album has put me to sleep almost every night my brain just could handle all the bullshit of everyday life. If I was stressed, I would put this album on and just listen. The smooth, haunting sounds would eventually put me to sleep.
Streetlight Manifesto Everything Goes Numb
Thomas Kalnoky and the gang at their absolute best. Lyrically and musically perfect.
The Gaslight Anthem The '59 Sound
I can hear the 59 sound coming through on grandmama's radio, and it's the best sound I've heard in a while.
The Hold Steady Boys and Girls in America
Apparently, Craig Finn was a failed slam poet. I'm not necessarily sure why/how someone would tell them they're a failed slam poet, but he definitely proves them wrong with Boys and Girls.
The Hold Steady Separation Sunday
The Menzingers On the Impossible Past
The National High Violet
The National doesn't fuck around when it comes to making good music.
The National Boxer
The National knows love. The National knows heartbreak. The National knows music.
The Smith Street Band No One Gets Lost Anymore
The Wonder Years Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm
Unless it's about a girl, you usually don't get this brutally honest with pop punk. Suburbia sets The Wonder Years apart from their compatriots with lyrics that hit like a train and music to match.
The Wonder Years The Greatest Generation
I'm sorry I don't "five" at the right times.
Third Eye Blind Third Eye Blind
My soundoffs are all fucking terrible.

4.5 superb
A Wilhelm Scream Career Suicide
Alexisonfire Watch Out!
Alexisonfire Crisis
Now, people may say that Watch Out! is Alexisonfire's masterpiece, but for me, Crisis is just perfect. I've been digging this album hardcore for about a week now and every time I listen to it, I'm just more impressed than I was before. This Canadian band obviously has some major talent. One of the best, if not the best, post-hardcore album I have in my iTunes library.
Anberlin Cities
There's always something to be admired in a consistent band. Unless, of course, they're consistently bad. But that's not what Anberlin is, at all. With the recent release of their latest album, Vital, it made me go back and listen to everything they released again. They really knew what they were doing on every single album. Every single one was excellent. But then there are the ones like Cities (and I'm sure Vital will become this way after a couple more listens). The albums that, although don't break from the consistency the band worked so hard to achieve year after year, but only improves on it, making it not only an incredibly solid album, but and album that can be enjoyed for hours on end without break. From start to finish, Cities is wonderful. The chanting section in the middle of (Fin) is one of the most beautiful and spine chilling moments I've ever experienced in a song.

Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilion
What I love about Animal Collective is that they are so different. They're different from every other band out there, but they're also different every time they release an album. Sung Tongs and Strawberry Jam were a ton different from Feels and Merrriweather Post Pavilion is even stranger. This band doesn't ever fail to impress and this is the album that they shine on.
Arcade Fire Funeral
Fantastic. There's not much else I have to say about it. It's just that good.
At the Drive-In Relationship of Command
It took me a really long time to get into this album, almost too long. Upon my first listen, I found this to be one of my favorite albums. This albums is one of the best post hardcore albums I've heard. The singing was gut wrenching at first listen, but after I got used to it, I loved the sound of it.
Blackalicious Blazing Arrow
Currently fighting for a five, it's one of the best rap albums I've heard.
Blue October History for Sale
Bomb the Music Industry! Goodbye Cool World!
Bomb the Music Industry! Adults!!!...
Just as good as a full release, solid and fun, if a bit short.
Bomb the Music Industry! Scrambles
Stay young, stay fun. Do the stuff that you like and get a little bit pumped. BtMI! shows the ska/punk world that they're the best of the underground.

Bon Iver For Emma, Forever Ago
When I first put in For Emma, I didn't know what to expect. I had picked it up from the library and on my weekly run and recognized it from this site. I put it in and the minute "Re:Stacks" was over, this album became one of my favorites. I recently rediscovered it and bumped it up to a classic rating. Justin Vernon should go down in the history books as one of the greatest artists of our modern generation. Inspiring and quite, this album is a perfect fit for anyone.
Brand New Deja Entendu
Cap'n Jazz Shmap'n Shmazz
Captain, We're Sinking The Future Is Cancelled
Circle Takes the Square As the Roots Undo
From all the comments I've been seeing, you either love this album, or hate it. Personally, I understand the perspective of each standing, however, I have enjoyed this album from the minute I first heard it. The songs seem to get longer as the album goes on and as the songs get longer, the songs get better. This album wouldn't work without the emotion that Circle Takes the Square put into it. If the singing and playing was flat, this album wouldn't be anymore than a "good." But CTtS shows us that they have what it takes to be considered among the top emo bands.
Circle Takes the Square Decompositions: Volume Number One
Converge Jane Doe
So much anger in such a small album. I love it. My favorite lyrics from the album: "a;kdslfa;oiexkjnvgwournwen;iusjogh" Brings tears to my eyes every time.

Deftones Around the Fur
Deftones are slowly growing to be my favorite band. I had missed my chance to see them live in concert, I consider this one of my greatest mistakes as a music lover. Being their second release, this showed fans and haters that Deftones could be more than just a nu-metal band. They slowed down and cut back on the vocals for some songs, showing their melodic side. This sophomore release is wonderful to listen to, and I do listen to it, quite often.
Deftones Diamond Eyes
There just seems to be something about Deftones. No band (that I've seen) has been able to change their sound this much and still remain at the top of their game with every single album release thus far. Defying any sort of genre, Deftones create their own world made up of their own music, using their god given talent for the good of all mankind.
Deftones Koi No Yokan
Although this album rode in on a hype train and was generally disliked because of it, it still manages to be one of the Deftones' best. Deftones can create an atmosphere that hangs over their album like no other band. We saw it with White Pony, Diamond Eyes and now again with Koi No Yokan. Chino's vocals and mixed with the combination of both metal and soft alt-rock is something only a band like Deftones can pull off, and there aren't any other bands like Deftones. Although it's no White Pony, it still stands alongside Diamond Eyes and far above any other Deftones release thus far. Brilliantly put together and atmospheric, Deftones do it again.
Dizzee Rascal Boy In Da Corner
I really love this rap album. One of the best, could be a five, but it's not quite there.

Eminem The Marshall Mathers LP
You know, I don't think I've ever wanted a musician to do drugs more than I want Eminem to relapse back into his pill addiction. I mean, he was so much better when he was rapping about homosexuals and Vicodin. Recovery wasn't as bad as Relapse, no, but still, he needs to be this good again.
Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) What It Takes to Move Forward
Everyone Everywhere Everyone Everywhere
Fair to Midland Fables From a Mayfly...
If there's one word I hate more than any word in the English language, it's "epic." I understand it being used to describe a poem, book or anything else that actually stands by the definition of "epic". This album stands by the definition. While not "epic" in length, the sure quality of it is absolutely fantastic. Although the lyrics rarely make any sense, I want to sing along with every song. The vocalist has such a great range it just helps the "epic-ness" of the album.
Faith No More Angel Dust
Yeah, this.rYour soundoff was too short, it has to be at least 50 characters
Fear Before The Always Open Mouth
Foo Fighters The Colour and the Shape
Foo Fighters Wasting Light
Frank Turner England Keep My Bones
In England talk, a brilliant album beginning to end, not quite Love, Ire and Song, but it's so close it's almost too good.
Frightened Rabbit The Midnight Organ Fight
Genesis The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
This album is a pure beast. A behemoth in terms of both length and concept. The last album that the Gabriel Genesis brought to us, and quite honestly, the best. Whether the concept came to Gabriel in a dream, or he was just this crazy, the album came out beautifully. Every song brings out what Genesis got right in their previous albums. There couldn't be a better way to spend an hour and a half.
Genesis Selling England by the Pound
Glassjaw Worship and Tribute
After listening to some of the band's music on Youtube, I thought I wouldn't enjoy this album; I was so wrong. I started listening to it, and it immediately grew on me. I enjoy the hardcore sound. They pull it off well.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada
Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...
Beautiful. In every way, shape, and form, beautiful. There's no denying that this album is amazing, and one that is actually deserving of its status on many levels. It just seems to have that extra something that F#A#(Infinity) doesn't have. Maybe it's the more uplifting mood or the fact that there's an extra song to listen to. Whatever the case may be, this album is extraordinary in every sense of the word and deserves to go down in history as such.

Japandroids Post-Nothing
Japandroids Celebration Rock
I don't really care if I'm supposed to rate things subjectively or not on this site, but this one, I really can't. Although it's not perfect in the sense that 'The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me' and 'White Pony' are perfect, it still seems almost flawless in my heart. The music is simple and the lyrics are cheesy, but that's what makes the Japandroids so good. I recently saw them at a small venue here in Denver, and they even admitted to having easy songs to sing along to. The complexity of the lyrics isn't what matters though, deep, meaningful lyrics aren't what makes an album stick with a person. I believe it was Hemingway who once said in response to Faulkner "Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?" Japandroids sing about going out, getting drunk, and having a damn good time, not caring about anything but the night ahead and the friends by your side. Complex or not, Japandroids will always know how to bring forth a sense of nostalgia in us all.
Jeff Buckley Grace
Beautiful and dynamic. Buckley showed what he was made of with Grace. From start to finish the album feels complete. Every song sounds different and unique. Jeff Buckley showed the world that he could be soft with "Hallelujah" and could rock hard with "Eternal Life". One of, if not THE essential album of the nineties. If you don't own this album, you don't know music.

Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Kanye West is an asshole. He is an egotistical, self worshiping, self centered shit. And I fucking love it. What West created with 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' is awe inspiring. No longer is he relying on catchy hooks and poppy auto-tuned lyrics. He's actually focusing on what really counts, the passion behind the music. If all Kanye had to do is disrespect someone to make this good of an album, I want fists flying at the next MTV awards.
Kashiwa Daisuke Program Music I
When I first downloaded this album, I thought something had gone wrong. Why were there only two songs? that's ridiculous, that's a demo, not a fucking album. Then I noticed the length of these two songs, both over 25 minutes. I put off listening to this album for awhile (considering I never really had an hour to sit down and actually listen intently) but when I finally did I loved it. It's a very odd album, but every second is worth the listen.

Unfortunately a late listen for me. Should be a part of all end of the lists.
mewithoutYou Brother, Sister
This album is truly inspiring. There aren't many albums that can do what this one did. It really helped me stay positive through life. This album came to me when I was down and right after everything turned itself around. My life just kept getting better and this album walked with me through all of it. Sure, it didn't help me through shit, but it helped me get even more out of life than I thought possible.

Miles Davis Kind of Blue
This album is honestly jazz perfection. There is not other jazz musician that could do what Davis pulled off in the incredible album. A true masterpiece.

Really great. This album jumps back and forth between a 5 and a 4.5 every week it seems. Not sure if it will ever stay in one place.

Opeth Still Life
Opeth Damnation
Imagine what Opeth created with Blackwater Park, now just tone down everything. Take is slower, don't growl as much (or at all) and you've got yourself Damnation. This album, like Blackwater Park, is perfect. It shows that even the heaviest of black metal bands can tone it down and still sound fantastic. Essential not just for progressive metal fans, but for music fans everywhere.
Opeth Ghost Reveries
Opeth Blackwater Park
This is Opeth's magnum opus. Nothing the made, or will make, will be better than this album right here. The eight songs last forever but never seem to take too long to get finished. The album is perfect in every way. Plus Steven Wilson helped them out with the production, which just makes it that much better.
Pearl Jam Ten
Peter Gabriel Melt
I grew up on Peter Gabriel. The one CD that was always playing in my parents' car was Peter Gabriel's 'Shaking the Tree: Greatest Hits'. I loved this album, and once I grew up to realize that there are actually songs outside of greatest hits albums, I picked this up. There isn't anything Peter Gabriel can't do. He was fantastic in Genesis, and he's still going strong solo (except for the 'Scratch My Back' exception). Overall an amazing album, I also happen to have found it on vinyl for $3, how fucking great is that?
Peter Gabriel So
Pianos Become the Teeth The Lack Long After
Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon
Pink Floyd Animals
Pink Floyd The Wall
This is nothing besides a five to me. I don't care what anyone says, I think it's much better than 'Dark Side of the Moon' and 'Animals'. Don't get me wrong, I think those albums are stand outs among progressive music, but to me 'The Wall' is just so much better. The story of it just pulls me in. Although there's a lot of filler, it's all needed, there's nothing there that shouldn't be there. It all seems to fit in to place. Now, I'm never going to say that 'The Wall' is better than 'Wish You Were Here', oh hell no. HELL NAW, but it's still a stand out album.
Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here
It might only have five songs, but Wish You Were Here lasts a damn long time. This was one of my first albums that really got me into music. Without it, I don't think I would have even found this site which changed my musical tastes even more. Also, "Have a Cigar" is one of my favorite songs of all time. OF ALL TIME!!!
Pixies Surfer Rosa
Pixies Doolittle
Porcupine Tree Deadwing
Porcupine Tree In Absentia
No, this is NOT Porcupine Tree's best album. Fear of a Blank Planet is Porcupine Tree's best album. This album is still genius however. I was the start of their new sound. Instead of more of a Floyd sound, their sound started getting heavier. I love both of the sounds, pre-Absentia and post-Absentia, and this album is right in the middle, making it just amazing.
Porcupine Tree Lightbulb Sun
This is one of Porcupine Tree's best albums. No, not better than In Absentia or Fear of a Blank Planet, but it's at least number 3. It shows what they were like before turning dark and gloomy. Fine, fine work.
Porcupine Tree Stupid Dream
This is the album that started it all. For me at least. One Christmas, my uncle got me a CD, this CD. I hadn't heard of the band was was in a crappy metalcore stage. When I started listening, I got so into it, I couldn't stop listening. Later, my uncle gave me their entire discography. Although this isn't Porcupine Tree's best, it still shows as a milestone in their discography.
Radiohead In Rainbows
Radiohead Kid A
I am really all over the place with this album. Not being a huge fan of Radiohead, I picked it up after I saw it at the top of all these "Best of the Decade" list. I started listening and hated it. I thought it was over-hyped and it didn't stand to 'OK Computer'. I would get angry every time someone would say that 'Kid A' was the best Radiohead album, because deep down inside, I knew it wasn't true. Later, I grew to love the album, but I still thought it was far less superior than 'OK Computer'. Later, I found myself listening to it all the time, realizing, that this may be one of my favorite albums. That was the day I realized that 'OK Computer' had been beaten by it's little brother 'Kid A'.
Radiohead OK Computer
Radiohead created a modern masterpiece with OK Computer. What seemed to be a normal alternative rock band crafted something so wonderful it changed what we are as human beings. Not really, but it was still a landmark in musical achievements. Great band, fantastic album.
Refused The Shape of Punk to Come
Rise Against The Sufferer and the Witness
Rise Against Siren Song of the Counter Culture
This is the best Rise Against album. Anyone who says otherwise obviously doesn't know what music is.
Saves the Day Stay What You Are
Say Anything Say Anything
So this may be Say Anything's weakest album to date, but that doesn't mean it can't be one of the greatest albums out there. I'm going to say this again, but there really isn't another person who is as great of a lyricist as Max Bemis. Every song is rich with speech and fluency. Truly an amazing album.
Say Anything In Defense of the Genre
Although this album isn't as good as ...Is a Real Boy, it's still fantastic. Max Bemis's lyrics still pierce the heart of angst-ridden teens everywhere, and I love it. The huge 27 song album is great from start to finish and never left me wishing there was more.

Streetlight Manifesto Somewhere in the Between
Streetlight Manifesto The Hands That Thieve
Streetlight Manifesto prove that they can stay the same, try out something a little new, and still retain an incredibly solid sound. All around a wonderfully crafted album, pushing Thomas and the gang a little further on the tightrope of perfection.
Sufjan Stevens Illinois
Sun Kil Moon Ghosts of the Great Highway
Fantasmigorical. Almost a five, (it was previously, but I bumped it down).
Sun Kil Moon Benji
I wrote a song to explain my soundoff. "I started to listen to the new Sun Kil Moon album and thought it was really gooooooood, thought it was really good, really good, really good. / I thought the lyrics were a little bit bad, but eventually learned to enjoy them for the story instead of the subtleties, instead of the suuuuuuutleties / Overall I think it's a pretty good album and I think I'll rate it pretty high because I personally think it's their best since Ghosts of the Great Highway, but that's just my opinion" What'd'ya think, guys, am I the new Kozelek?

After Franz Nicolay left the band, the Hold Steady tripped up a bit. Despite it holding their best song (Hurricane J), Heaven is Whenever seemed to fall a bit flat. However, they have finally found their footing. Teeth Dreams is a step in a different direction, but it's a step in a good direction.r

The Tallest Man on Earth The Wild Hunt
I've started listening to this album more and more. And the more I listen to it, the better it gets. Obviously the best of 2010 and could walk away with a top spot in the best of decade. It may be very far off, but I still look forward to this tall man's other releases, knowing they will only get better as time goes on.
The Weeknd Echoes of Silence
Two words: holy shit. Although, I'll have to put more because sputnik won't let the sound-off be shorter than however many characters.

Why did it take me so long to listen to this album? Holy shit, this is so good. God damn, seriously. Fuck.

Tigers on Trains Grandfather
Superb to the last chord, "A Year in the Garden Shed" is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard. Fantastic beginning to end.
Titus Andronicus The Monitor
Why is it that this album is so good? I mean, the vocals aren't anything to write home about, in fact, they could be considered somewhat bad. The production value is a little less than average, and sometimes, the songs just sound like noise. It's bands like Titus Andronicus that make me look for a brighter future in a musical present filled with shitty pop and dubstep. It's nice to know that a band can still pull off something completely original and unique and still get critical praise for such a thing. Sure, they may not be popular, they may not be played on the radio, but they still pull off being recognized by all the major music sites and magazines as one of the best albums of 2010 and one of the best albums of all time (for me at least.) Titus Andronicus makes the future of music a little less "wubby" and I'm perfectly okay with that.
Tom Waits Rain Dogs
Rain Dogs has got to be the most interesting album I've ever heard, it's definitely unlike anything I've ever heard. Tom Waits's vocals are ragged and rough, but also quite tolerable to listen to. I found every second of the album to be enjoyable and smiled through the entire thing.
Tool Lateralus
Great, just great. Probably better than Aenima, but I'll have to give that another listen to be sure.

Ah screw it, this little EP deserves it. Wonderful inside and out, the first piece by Trophy Scars I listened to, and it got me hooked. What can I say, the audio clip in "Angels" that they took from Lost, gets me every time.
Wu-Tang Clan Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Great hip-hop. Well, not great... almost classic.
Yellowcard When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes
Oh Yellowcard, you can't make bad music, can you? Oh well, we'll just ignore those first few albums, yeah? Sounds good.
Yellowcard Ocean Avenue
Yeah, yeah, I know it's Sowing's thing, but seriously, this is a fantastic break-up album. I was listening to Yellowcard (and this album) for probably just as long as my relationship with this girl, and I put this album on (coincidentally) on the drive over to her house one night, where she promptly broke up with me. It was tough, but as soon as "Believe" came on, well, I knew that everything was going to be alright. I recently saw them at the Warped Tour in Denver, and "Ocean Avenue" and "Only One" finally clicked for me, unleashing my true feelings. This album, sure the songs may all sound kind of the same, sure, they may be all about breaking up, but there's so much emotion poured into each song, I can't help but love it. Yeah, I still miss that girl, her name was Heather, but I know that only time and Yellowcard will heal the wounds that cut so deep when we finally came to an end.

I still remember when my mom wouldn't let me listen to blink because they were just too vulgar. Of course she heard this from a friend who heard from a friend whose son's friend's older brother listened to the stuff, but really. I was never really in to them until late, but I still remember seeing the look on my friend's face when he heard they were getting back together. I'm glad they did, but they will never make another album like this again. I won't lie, I do like the new "Box Car Blink" sound, but their self-titled was the epitome of amazing pop punk. It's interesting, being a late blink-bloomer, to see the change blink-182 went through over the years. Starting out as a generic punk band, they grew into pop punk, and as Tom DeLonge explored the more melodic side, the band ever grew (well, might I add) with him. Who would have thought the band that put farting and pissing noises into an album would end up making anything close to "I Miss You" and "I'm Lost Without You"?
Blue October Foiled
Blue October Any Man in America
There are few bands out there that truly make me smile whenever I listen to them. Blue October, from their start, have been fantastic, and this album, is their best effort yet. Sure, it's not perfect, I would much rather have the rap section taken out of the title track, but that doesn't take away from the album as a whole. The concept is, although sad, still beautiful. From start to finish, I didn't find a dull moment; they experiment with their sound with every song, and never really fail at finding something that doesn't work. I truly hope Blue October grows from this album, and all their future releases are even better. The best album of 2011 so far, and it's close to the end of the year, so maybe even the best.

Defeater Empty Days and Sleepless Nights
I love concept albums. I grew up with them, and I'll be listening to them until the day I die. This concept, although I'm still figuring the lyrics out, is amazing. I never thought a hardcore band could produce something this amazing. Travels was great and I honestly never thought that they could do anything better, but Empty Days and Sleepless Nights proves that Defeater is the new king of hardcore. A truly awe-inspiring album.

"The Beatles suck." Those three words enter my ears almost every day. I hate them so very much. I will agree that they might not be the best band ever (personally) but I will agree that they are the most important band ever. The Beatles changed music with this album, but I still don't think it's as good as Abbey Road. Just an opinion, but one I personally enjoy having. I still love the Beatles though.

The Gaslight Anthem Get Hurt
I first heard The 59 Sound in high school, back when I was incredibly impressionable, growing out of the shitty "middle-school-music" phase (Linkin Park, Korn, Disturbed, etc). It, along with the Gaslight Anthem, became one of my absolute favorites, always wanting to drive around, late on a summer night with the windows down, jamming to "The Patient Ferris Wheel". When Handwritten came out, I wanted to love it, and I did, for a bit. Now I can't listen to any of it, save maybe "45". I was excited to see what Get Hurt would do for the band, maybe Fallon and Co would reach a sound we didn't think they were capable of. The results ended up flat and disappointing. Still a decent album, but I don't think I'll ever get that same feeling from a new Gaslight song as I did when I first heard that record scratching on "Great Expectations".

There is not a single band in the world that I grew to hate more than the Black Eyed Peas. When I was younger, they were awesome. "Pump It" and "Where is the Love" were some of my favorite songs, but as they got older, they started making pure, party music. Except this isn't the kind of party music that you can't listen to on your own, but party to at a dance; no, this album is literally pure shit. I would rather lay in my own fecal matter than listen to "Imma be, Imma be, Imma Imma Imma be" one more fucking time.
