5.0 classic
A Tribe Called Quest The Low End Theory
Agalloch The Mantle
The Mantle isn't just an album, it is an experience in itself. It is the musical equivalent
of traveling within the Cascadian wilderness in the mid 19th century during the American
western expansion. If you listen to this at the right moment, it feels like you're charting
previously unknown territory, which would not be entirely inaccurate either since it is such
a unique experience. This usually gets lumped in with Folk Metal, but it takes inspiration
from many genres (Post-Rock, Ambient, Black Metal, Doom Metal...ect). If you are fan of
metal or experimental music, or if you just want your life changed for the better, do
yourself a favor and get this record.
Aphex Twin Selected Ambient Works 85-92
Bathory Blood Fire Death
This is the musical equivalent of mounting a horse, riding through hundreds of miles in icy
and desolate boreal forests, going at least three years without a bath, consuming a diet of
nothing but reindeer and mead, all to just rape and pillage in the name of odin just because
it's a fun way to spend your early twenties. This album is dirty and raw, which is also
coincidentally just how your mum used to serve you pork and potatoes when you still lived at
home. If you have listened to this, you probably have too much iron in your blood and run
the risk of developing metal veins (if you do not already have them). If you have not heard
this yet, just do it for Valhalla's sake.
Between the Buried and Me Alaska
This was the first experience that I ever had with both BTBAM and metalcore as a whole. I first heard Alaska when I was 14 years old back in 2008, and it absolutely blew me away. I initially loved how this album blended bits and pieces from various genres. There are moments of absolute brutality which phase into extended solo sections, and/or softer moments effortlessly, and songs like Selkies and Backwards Marathon display this perfectly. Six years after first hearing Alaska, the album is still as fresh and as exciting as it ever was, or ever will be.
Bjork Post
Post is just like Bjork's other releases considering its accomplishments and its
intricacies. Bjork manages to successfully weave multiple threads of various genres together
into not only a coherent album, but an exceptional album. Post's cool atmosphere combined
with its fancy for experimentation, prevails throughout the album's duration. The
instrumentation is bouncy, and the vocals go through a wide spectrum of emotions. There are
moments on here where one can't help but tap their feet in joy (Army Of Me and It's Oh So
Quiet), and there are bittersweet epics (Hyperballad and Possibly Maybe) that have the
potential to leave the listener feeling emotionally vulnerable. This wide spectrum of
emotions is where Post surpasses Bjork's other releases as her later albums tend to focus on
perfecting one particular style or mood. This album is Bjork's best and most diverse
release, and Post is also one of her most accessible releases.
Camel Moonmadness
This is the best and most complete Camel record. Moonmadness takes everything that made
Mirage so great, but magnifies those features tenfold. Every song is perfect, the
instrumentation is some of the best (if not the best) in progressive rock, and the vocal
work is also better on this record. Lunar Sea is also one of the best closing tracks that I
have ever heard.
Cocteau Twins Treasure
Coheed and Cambria In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3
Cynic Focus
Cynic's Focus is one of the most unique metal albums to have ever been recorded, period. Everything from Focus' stellar and blistering guitar work, the metaphysical tinged lyrics and cybernetic vocals, to its mesmerizing rhythm section, makes this record stand out as a beacon among other death and prog bands from the era (which is quite the feat considering the vast array of talent within both scenes at the time of this record).
David Bowie Hunky Dory
Death Human
Devin Townsend Ocean Machine: Biomech
Dream Theater Awake
Many people (including a huge chunk of Dream Theater's dedicated fanbase) consider albums
like Images & Words and Scenes From a Memory to be Dream Theater's best material. Although
the aforementioned albums are fantastic and deserve the reputation that they so often
receive from fans and critics alike, Awake is by and large the most consistent and most
rewarding Dream Theater album. Awake tones down the wild instrumentation featured on Images
& Words, and places its focus on songwriting and building atmospheres (which are often dark
and beautiful). The instrumentation is still flashy, but the end result is much more
tasteful and satisfying compared to other Dream Theater albums. Awake is slightly more
difficult to get into compared to albums like Images & Words, but a lot of that difficulty
may stem from its seriousness whereas the former album was meant to be more fun and
immediate. Awake is also meant to be heard in one sitting, so give it a few spins, and you
will not be sorry. Awake is one of Dream Theater's best albums, and it is also one of
progressive metal's
greatest gems.

Steve Reich Music for 18 Musicians
Music for 18 Musicians is both musical perfection, and the perfect representation of
minimalism. Steve Reich uses strings, woodwinds, idiophone percussion, the human voice, and
the latest looping technology (at the time of composition), to create a create a masterful
and utterly hypnotizing piece of music. The introductory movement Pulses, sets the tone for
the rest of the piece perfectly by utilizing all of the aforementioned musical tools to
erect a steady, yet structure-less wash of musical tones. As the movement progresses and the
chord movements shift, new instruments are introduced or swap melodies with other
instruments, thus adding new details to Steve's sonic canvas. After Pules, the piece evolves
into the "sectioned" movements; and hence, the journey truly commences. The "sectioned
movements" are much more structured as each selection takes a melody or melodies, and eases
them into a variety of flavors which are defined by their timbres. A melody like that of
Section I, sounds absolutely gorgeous as it is portrayed by female vocals, but reoccurs in
Section IIIa as a woodwind part, which is presented in a more intense and daunting fashion.
Describing each track on a compositional level is difficult, but it is really the only way
to do it justice in an unbiased manner. The album itself lacks any meaning other than what
it wears on its sleeves. Let the composition be whatever you want it to be. For myself, it
is the musical equivalent of being in a state of absolute harmony with the world.
Strapping Young Lad City
The Dillinger Escape Plan Irony Is a Dead Scene
If I had to describe Irony Is a Dead Scene in one word, that word would be "ridiculous". This EP has some of the heaviest instrumentation in both hardcore and metalcore as a whole, and Mike Patton's vocals just take it over the top. This EP is also the perfect length. If it were any shorter or longer, it would certainly hurt the overall quality of the product, and its concise length also makes it a surprisingly easy listen for something as intense and as dissonant as it is. If you are a TDEP fan, you've got to hear this. Same goes to Patton fans.

If you are wanting Ashes Against The Grain Part 2 or The Mantle Part 2, this is not it. Instead, Agalloch goes back to the sound on Pale Folklore but mixes elements from each previous album into play with many new elements as well. This album shoecases Agalloch doing what they do best but this album is a definite grower....especially for fans of The Mantle and Ashes Against The Grain.

Between the Buried and Me The Great Misdirect
While this wasn't the first BTBAM record that I had ever heard, it was the first BTBAM record that was released after I had already gotten into the band. I picked The Great Misdirect up (along with Converge's Axe To Fall) at an FYE during a lengthy trip to a marching band festival during my sophomore year of high school. I remember jamming the 5.1 mix in the wee morning hours after I had gotten back, and I was blown away. I have always seen this album as a continuation of the style that was presented on Colors, but the end result is more refined and in turn, more adventurous and fun. The Great Misdirect isn't as influential as its predecessor and it's certainly not a classic within the genre of progressive metal, but its one of the most enjoyable experiences that I have ever had with a progressive metal record.

Death Individual Thought Patterns
Individual Thought Patterns is the best Death album, and also happens to be the best death metal album of all time. It has everything ranging from legendary riffs and solos, a raw yet crystal clear mix and production, a blistering rhythm section, devastating vocals, and excellent lyrics. Every Death album has all or most of the previous features, but what makes this album stand out is its tightness. From the opening track Overactive Imagination to the closing track The Philosopher, this album is nothing but a relentless stream of death metal that never ceases to amaze, and the album's classic lineup only amplifies this. If you are a fan of extreme metal and if you have not yet heard this, you deserve a healthy does of pummeling. Individual Thought Patterns is an album of historical proportions.

This is one of the hugest sounding albums I have ever heard. A true metal opera. Everything from the arrangements to the massive sounding orchestra which backs most of the songs is just genius. The guest appearances are also just as amazing. Every song is as pummeling as the previous and not a mediocre or sub-par moment in the bunch which I was worried would be the case with the long lengths of some of the songs. This is superb stuff and I have a feeling this will be a classic to my ears and one to remember for many years to come.

Dream Theater A Change of Seasons
This is a fantastic EP. The title track is complex and long similar to other Dream Theater rpieces that have earned (rightfully or wrongly) the reputation of being epics, but A Change rof Seasons remains engaging throughout its 23:06 duration. The title track's transitions are ramong the best in the Dream Theater catalog. The mix is also the best, as every instrument rfalls in perfect harmony with one another: the guitars are not fighting the keyboards and rvocals for space in the mix, and the bass is perfectly clear throughout the entire piece. rThe rest of the EP is made up of covers that were performed around the same time as the rrecording of the title track. The covers are great for the most part, and also share most of rthe same positive features as the other tracks. A Change of Seasons is certainly one of the rbest EPs in Progressive Metal hitherto, and one of Dream Theater's best releases. If you are rlooking for a great entry point into Progressive Metal, or if you are familiar with Dream rTheater's music and want more, this EP is a "must".

This DVD also features a fairly lengthy tour documentary and an interview which are both very nice features. If you are an Opeth fan this must be in your collection.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting a lot with this DVD and I wasn't even planning on getting it but I had some spare cash and I was interested after seeing positive feedback on it. The concert itself is very good. I was there was more from their other albums but I really liked Crack The Skye so I am not complaining. The movie is pretty neat as well.

Take everything Protest The Hero has done before, mix it all together, add ample amounts of cheese, add a pinch of that special Protest The Hero wankery and this is what you get. Each song has a different feel unlike their other albums which can bleed together pretty easily. The only real disappointment is C'est La Vie wasn't near as strong of an opener as Bloodmeat. The highlights for me were Moonlight, Tapestry (My favorite), Dunsel, and Sex Tapes.

James LaBrie Static Impulse
James LaBrie, who is arguably Dream Theater's weakest link, showcases a higher level of constancy with Static Impulse than anything Dream Theater has put out in the recent years. Static Impulse is an interesting mix of Progressive Metal with many other elements ranging from Melodic Metalcore to more Industrial sounds reminiscent of ex Dream Theater member Kevin Moore's musical outlet OSI. The song writing is very original and compliments LaBrie's vocals well while at the same time, showcases very technical musicianship which doesn't get "Overly Technical" for the most part. If you are a fan of Progressive Metal or Dream Theater I would recommend this.

Opeth Watershed
Opeth Pale Communion
Where Heritage was a solid, yet albeit flawed as a transition record into progressive rock, Pale Communion is more solidified as far as atmosphere and compositions go. Opeth take Heritage's pros (the production and taste for experimentation) and nudges them to a new rlevel as they introduce new elements like strings. Pale Communion also nods to previous releases, as there are moments like the into to Eternal Rains that feel eerily reminiscent rto parts of Ghost Reveries and Watershed. Joakim Svalberg's keyboard work is ralso a tasteful addition. The album can drag on the longer songs like Moon Above, Sun Below, and Mikael has the tendency to over-sing at times (which can be cringe worthy at rtimes), but this album is still another welcome entry to the Opeth catalog. Those who did rnot like Heritage will most likely not find much to enjoy on this record, but it is definitely worth a listen if you enjoy albums like Damnation and Heritage.

Steven Wilson Grace for Drowning
Steven Wilson Hand. Cannot. Erase.
The most enjoyable moments on this album are those which occur whenever Steven Wilson strays
farthest from the Pink Floyd/King Crimson-esque sounds that have dominated his last two solo
albums, and whenever Wilson flirts with electronica and chamber pop sounds (with the self-titled
track, Routine, and Perfect Life being superb examples). There are gorgeous melodies dispersed
throughout Hand. Cannot. Erase., and this album more than any other Wilson solo output, bears a
strong sense of expansiveness and adventure. I am happy to see Wilson finally inch away from his
comfort zone as a solo artist, and I can only hope that he continues to experiment and hone
in his potential as an instrumentalist and songwriter.

This album is an improved version of everything that Bastard was. Better beats, unique production, the only things that hold it back from being great are the lackluster, sometimes laughable lyrics, (Fish being the perfect example) and the length of the album (74 Minutes) If you love OFWGKTA, you will love this.
