Clutch Earth Rocker
Following the subdued, bluesy Strange Cousins, Clutch deliver their most rollicking, heavy,
full-throttled set of songs yet. From the furious assault of "Earth Rocker" to the
commanding groove of "Book, Saddle, And Go" there's not a dull moment to be found. Rest
assured - you will be rocking.

Anberlin Cities
Arcade Fire Reflektor
It's as if they don't know if they want to write a hipster anthem or a dance club hit. It's such a bizarre, irreconcilable combination. Take that with how pompously bloated the whole thing is, and it's j.ust irritating
Between the Buried and Me The Great Misdirect
Blackfield Welcome To My DNA
Do not come into this album expecting Steven Wilson's midas touch; nearly all of the music here has been written by Aviv Geffen, and it shows.

Coming off of the smoking revival of Two Against Nature, Steely Dan did the unpredictable;
they released a boring, uninteresting album.

Tyler the Creator Goblin
An inconsistent mix of great tracks, forgettable songs, and horribly failed experiments. When it's good, it's phenomenal--see the word-work on "Tron Cat," but songs such as "Radicals" prevent this from being a great album, which is a shame, because if Tyler could trim the fat and keep the "Yonkers" he'd make one hell of an album.

Ben Folds Five The Sound of the Life of the Mind
I was searching for the right word to describe this and eventually settled on "dreadful." I
didn't pick the word just because this is a bad album but because you're actually overcome
with a sense of dread when you realize another song is about to start.

Gonna hold off for the epic Akerfeldt/Masvidal collab album to hear the gigantic Opeth synth fart transition into some wanky alt prog bass playing with snack snap crackle feel the pain in my brain pop lyrics, cue jethro tull doom metal flute section.

John Mayer Paradise Valley
Could John possibly sound more bored with his own material? I'm all for pursuing new artistic directions, but when you're not even excited about it why should your listeners be? It's even more disappointing knowing he can write songs like Gravity and Neon.

Chris Cornell Scream
dredg Chuckles & Mr. Squeezy
It's a shame--tragic, even. El Cielo was a magnificent album, and it seemed that this band was destined for great things. Unfortunately, the only great thing this band has acheived since then is a great, embarassing fall into mediocrity. All creativity, integrity, and inspiration this band once had has been effectively snuffed out of existence. The lyrics to "Sanzen" now have a bitter irony to them: "The pen ink is running dry, it's been thrown to paper and wasted, creavity has been blocked and over tasted." Maybe in time dredg will re-appreciate it.
Limp Bizkit Gold Cobra
Queensryche Dedicated to Chaos
R.A.E.D. World Wide Phenomenon
While it's not the most annoying music ever conceived, it certainly makes a case for being the worst. The "artist's" career can best be summped up by the infamous YouTuibe video "You Gotta Love This City Babe."
