Instrumentally, rhythmically and lyrically a record of incredible colour, Dylan's 73-minute long Blonde on Blonde remains a breath of fresh air even after almost fifty years: certainly one of the greatest examples of a timeless album.Burial UntrueCharles Mingus The Black Saint and the Sinner LadyElectric Wizard DopethroneExplosions in the Sky The Earth is Not a Cold Dead PlaceKanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted FantasyAlbum Rating: 4.9

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is a record that is special to so many people, but ask any one of them to explain what the album is about and you'd be unlikely to receive a convincing answer. What little we have scraped together concerning the vast ideas present in Mangum's lyrics--Anne Frank, allusions to sex, and a single lyric of mourning--have been useless in attempting to understand the entirety of the record. And yet, this messy assembly of seemingly meaningless, stream-of-consciousness lyrics and borderline-throwaway musical arrangements can still inspire so many emotions in so many different people. And in that, Mangum's feat is one more grandiose than even he would care to admit: he creates an auditory capturing of the experience of life. Indeed, one is only along for the ride with In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, and not the great, unknowable answers.The Mars Volta Frances the MuteThe Wonder Years Suburbia: I've Given You All and Now I'm NothingAlbum Rating: 5.0

The Wonder Years is one of those bands that have carved out their own, unique sound within an extremely derivative genre, and continue to reinvent that sound with every new album. They probably can't keep doing it forever, but until it gets old, enjoy what is undoubtedly the best mainstream-styled pop punk band ever.The World is a Beautiful Place And... Whenever, If EverThee Silver Mount Zion He Has Left Us Alone...Titus Andronicus Local BusinessAlbum Rating: 4.4
In the wake of the raw sprawl of overdriven guitars and gruff yells in The Monitor, Titus have put together a jangle-heavy existential masterpiece that hits accurately between their previous two records, taking the indie songwriting of Airing and the anthemic rock sound of Monitor with strangely clear lo-fi-production to create a truly fresh, polished record. And Springsteen resemblance is down 70%!4.0 excellentAllison Weiss Say What You MeanAlbum Rating: 4.1
I think the biggest mistake you could make while listening to Say What You Mean is to see it as--musically and lyrically--simple. This red herring is especially true for the opening two tracks, considering "Making It Up" follows an extremely obvious structure and "One Way Love" has some ridiculously generic lyrics. Furthermore, to make this mistake is to understand Say What You Mean as a record for simple listening, that is, perhaps for listening while immersed in some sort of other activity like any piece of overly romantic pop, and with this conclusion Say What You Mean falters. But, in truth, Say What You Mean is a record made to listen to: it's subtle in its many innovations, from miniscule structural idiosyncrasies to the very way that instruments are introduced, layered and subsequently exited. It's truly a joy to observe.
Also, there's a part in the title track that sounds like "Surrender" by Cheap Trick.BADBADNOTGOOD BBNGLIVE2bansheebeat WutaiCaspian Waking SeasonDJ Shadow Preemptive StrikeDrake Take CareFucked Up Year of the TigerAlbum Rating: 3.8

Recorded at a house show clearly occupied by close friends, Spring Song Vol. 1 is intensely personal yet rarely exclusive. The sheer execution of some of Koji's greatest tracks on this record is enough to affirm its strength, but the way that Koji's spontaneity, sincerity and natural showmanship is able to engage not only his live audience but listeners at home as well is nothing short of a commendably realistic live experience.Koji Crooked In My MIndAlbum Rating: 3.8
Koji's first full-length is a very confident effort, and certainly a strong one, but Crooked in My Mind is just too far from the masterpiece that the man seemed to tease in his earlier EPs.Loose Lips Sink Ships The Contemporary Issues of CelibacyManchester Orchestra Simple MathMatana Roberts Coin Coin Chapter One - Gens de couleur libresNeutral Milk Hotel On Avery IslandAlbum Rating: 4.1

Somewhat inconsistent in its quality across the board and lacking progression or ambition, the place at which Young New England prevails is its natural position as a summer record with some of the most engaging grooves and choruses of Transit's career under extremely bright instrumentation.Trap Her Keep Her Fake Record3.0 goodAnberlin Blueprints For The Black MarketConverge No HeroesCult of Luna VertikalDr. Dre The ChronicDream Theater A Dramatic Turn of EventsExplosions in the Sky Take Care, Take Care, Take CareFall Out Boy Fall Out Boy's Evening Out With Your GirlfriendFoo Fighters Echoes, Silence, Patience & GraceFrank Turner Tape Deck HeartInc.

Get Stoked on It!'s formula is flawed in that The Wonder Years have sliced up the most unoriginal areas of pop punk and melodic hardcore and merged them into something that only glimpses at the band's personal sound, but is ultimately washed down by an endless succession of cringe-worthy cliches.
P.S: "When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong" is virtually the exact same track as "Won't Be Pathetic Forever".Thrice Identity CrisisThursday Waiting2.5 average1902 MotsiAC/DC Highway to HellAngels and Airwaves Love Part 2Botch The Unifying Themes of Sex, Death, and ReligionColdplay Mylo XylotoConverge Halo in a HaystackDrake Thank Me LaterFall Out Boy Save Rock and RollAlbum Rating: 2.7

Where BlackenedWhite finally saw promise in then-amateur Hodgy Beats, Numbers sees him fall flat on his face. His rhythms are constantly recycled, his style is tired beyond belief, and his lyrics and hooks are often just awful (what the hell is "a herpe at the tip of a slurpee"?). Left Brain is in good form as usual, but his beats are unfortunately unable to lift off the ground without complementary chemistry from Hodgy.Mumford and Sons BabelNas NastradamusNOFX Maximum RocknRollOFWGKTA The Odd Future TapeSay Anything Anarchy, My DearThe All-American Rejects Kids in the StreetAlbum Rating: 2.0
Combining horribly generic pop rock techniques with a bit of "silly for the sake of silly", the once guiltily enjoyable All-American Rejects have compiled an entirely unfocused album reliant solely on the aforementioned combination in a failed attempt to formulate an album establishing maturity yet with a sprinkle of childishness (a la Weezer). The album is riddled with interest-sparking moments (e.g. some of "Fast and Slow", the guitar solo on "Heartbeat Slowing Down"), but leaves far too much to be desired between its overall underwhelming-ness.The Decemberists The King Is DeadAlbum Rating: 2.2

The reasons this sucks are very simple:
- remastering such perfect tracks a year after release is absolutely pointless.
- the small edits made to the old tracks are also pointless and actually reduce the quality of the record.
- the new tracks feel like second-rate outtakes.
- this travesty is the only Weeknd release available on vinyl (and, surprise surprise, it's overpriced).Three Days Grace One-X1.5 very poor3 Inches of Blood Here Waits Thy Doom50 Cent The Massacredredg Chuckles & Mr. SqueezyFall Out Boy ****: Live In PhoenixMy Bloody Valentine This Is Your Bloody ValentineThe Summer Set LegendaryTrivium The Crusade1.0 awfulBetter Music Modern Progressive MusicBullet For My Valentine Temper TemperLupe Fiasco LasersSkrillex Leaving
