Yndi Halda Enjoy Eternal Bliss
Though it borrows heavily from GY!BE, the music found on Enjoy Eternal Bliss has a more pleasing orchestral feel, as opposed to the strange ambiance of work like Skinny Fists. The buildups are joyously beautiful and the melodies are unforgettable. While it is not perfect, per se, nor is it a classic, it is still deserving of a high amount of praise. One of the most genuine and heartfelt post-rock albums not by Godspeed.

Vessels Helioscope
Extremely consistent, and a wonderful progression from White Fields. Helioscope narrows down the scope of the band just a bit, but sharpens up all of the things they do best. The result is a focused and very accessible album, full of entertaining melodies, mixing indie and post-rock.

Muse The Resistance
It's not terrible - the hate it gets stems more from that Muse made some great albums in the past. If this had been a debut, I guarantee it would receive less hate. Overall, it's not a terrible album, it just doesn't flow well together and a lot of the songwriting is just bland and unoriginal compared to what Muse has done in the past.

dredg Chuckles & Mr. Squeezy
Dredg wtf r u doin? Well in its own right, this (not even going to say the awful title) ralbum is a good music release. My only question is, where is Dredg? Are they here, or are rthese their doppelgangers? Some catchy songs, some worthless. It's fun if you are into poppy relectronic stuff, but this is shat on from a great height by El Cielo and Leitmotif.
