5.0 classic
Against Me! Against Me!
It is amazing how much anarchy, emotion, sincerety and melody you can find in these 6 short accoustic songs. It truly is one of the greatest EPs out there.

Arcade Fire Neon Bible
Bomb the Music Industry! To Leave or Die in Long Island
Bomb the Music Industry! Album Minus Band
Bruce Springsteen Born to Run
Probably the most beautiful record to ever strike the earth. Bruce Springsteen put so much effort into this album, and the result was nothing less than stunning. The keytracks are Thunder Road, Backstreets and Jungleland. Oh yeah, and that one everyone knows.
Bruce Springsteen Born in the U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen Darkness on the Edge of Town
Springsteen's follow-up to his 1975 masterpiece, Born to Run, is almost as good as it's predecessor. Singing about the common man, racing cars and beautiful and desirable women, Bruce manages to create something unique, yet very wide, spanning over songs from the cheerful piano in "Badlands" to the hard-hitting guitar-riff of "Adam Raised a Cain", with mellow and powerful ballads as "Racing in the Street" and the title track. I don't think I have to mention the lyrics, as it's pretty commonly known that Springsteen never disappoints on that matter.
Captain, We're Sinking The Future Is Cancelled
The title of this album is "The Future is Cancelled". Well, if that was true, I'd hope every present album would sound this good. From the raucousness of 'Adultery' to the final climax of 'Shoddy Workmanship', this album is a ride through hard emotions that just wants you to wallow in them (just listen to 'A Bitter Divorce'), complemented by harsh vocals, malecalls and excellent musicianship.
Converge Jane Doe
David Bowie The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust...
"TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME". That's what the original LP-cover said. And boy, is that true. There are no words that can describe this album properly, other than it's just fantastic. Nothing less. Maybe more. The most important songs are Ziggy Stardust, Five Years and Moonage Daydream.
David Bowie Aladdin Sane
Death Symbolic
Deftones White Pony
Probably the finest alternative metal record of the 21st century, White Pony shot the Deftones right into the new millenium at 90 m./p.h. with hard and aggressive songs like the furious Elite or Korea, to the more mellow and beautiful ballad-like ending in Knife Prty along with the entire Digital Bath or Passenger (featuring guest-vocals by Maynard James Keenan of Tool), ending in the slow and longer reprise of the single Back to School that is Pink Maggit.
Deftones Koi No Yokan
Husker Du New Day Rising
Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast
The first album Iron Maiden did with their new vocalist, Bruce Dickinson, who took the band to newer heights. This album is essential in every music collection. It's too hard to pick any real essentials out of the many, but title-track, Run to the Hills, 22 Acacia Avenue, The Prisoner and Hallowed Be Thy Name are all amongst the best metal songs ever made.
La Dispute Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...
Neil Young Tonight's the Night
Neil Young After the Gold Rush
My favorite album by Neil Young. With hauntingly beautiful melodies, Young's signature vocals and exceptional musicianship and lyrics. There are so many different aspects of his music to be found on here; the environmentally aware and jaw-droppingly gorgeus title track, the politically aware and guitar-rocking Southern Man or just sheer fun and smooth sailing on Cripple Creek Ferry. Consistently amazing.
Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon
True love never dies. I've loved this record since the first time I heard it in it's entirety (admittedly, I was really stoned!) If you don't like this, you're an idiot. Time sums up everything that's amazing about Pink Floyd, and Brain Damage + Eclipse are just fantastic closing-tracks.
Radiohead Kid A
Radiohead OK Computer
"Fitter. Happier. More productive. Comfortable." In a setting of something I'd like to compare to a world just before the happening of Skynet. Yes, Skynet as in The Terminator. On OK Computer, there's a process in the world going on, making it more and more electronical than it used to be. This record tells this story in a hard-hitting, beautiful and stunning way. The best tracks are Paranoid Android, Exit Music (For a Film) and Electroneering (with "Fitter Happier" just before it).
Rush A Farewell to Kings
A classic, progressive rock album of it's finest kind.
The best tracks are the two epics, Xanadu and Cygnus X-
1, and the title-track, A Farewell to Kings, but it's
all pure gold.
State Faults Resonate/Desperate
Biggest surprise of the year. I did not think a Screamo and Post-hardcore release would grasp my attention and chokehold it like this has. Very impressing.
The Dillinger Escape Plan Miss Machine
The Dillinger Escape Plan Option Paralysis
The Gaslight Anthem Sink or Swim
?Gruff? and ?Gritty? are two words which very well sums up, not only the brilliant vocal delivery by Brian Fallon, but the entire record and production of this very fine debut-record by The Gaslight Anthem. ?Sink or Swim? is everything a Punk-debut should be; fast-driven, raw and full of emotions. If ?The 59 Sound? is the band breaking free from Red Banks (with ?its four walls closing in?; Wooderson), this is the prequel describing the young life of Fallon and his fellow companions. Just give ?Angry Johnny and the Radio? and ?We?re Getting a Divorce, You Keep the Dinner? a go, or the slow burner at the end of the album, ?Red at Night?.
The Gaslight Anthem The '59 Sound
Springsteen's followers from New Jersey make an album that ranges almost up to the Boss' best in this sing-a-long and incredibly likeable and infectous punk/rock-record with unmatchable hits as Film Noir, anthems like The Patient Ferris Wheel, the soft ballad Here's Looking at You Kid, and hard-hitting rocker at the end of the album, The Backseat.
The Menzingers On the Impossible Past
?On the Impossible Past? is the kind of record that?ll stir up old feelings in most people, with its nostalgic lyrics about girls working in cafs, escaping adulthood, and avoiding growing-up. The difference between this band, Bruce Springsteen, the Gaslight Anthem, or other Americana- and heartland-inspired rock and punk is that these aforementioned bands have certain warmth and hope written into the songs, no matter how hopeless or desperate the situation might be. The Menzingers do this to the point of perfection, and fans of the genre (or music in general) shouldn?t miss out on listening to songs such as The Obituaries, Gates, Burn after Writing, or Casey. Oh, and of course the musicianship is top-notch, with wailing guitars, groovy bass lines, and tight drumming.
The National Alligator
Tracks like "Looking for Atronauts", "Daughters of the Soho Riot" and "Val Jester" has the atmosphere of their later records, whereas "Abel" and "Mr. November" has a post-punk feel to them. The lyrics found on tracks such as "Karen" and "All the Wine" just rocks. And I haven't even mentioned my favorite which is "Secret Meeting", where the shouting vocals at the end just harmonizes so well with Matt's voice. It also packs a three-pack-power-punch in the incredible record-ending spanning in "The Geese of Beverly Road", "City Middle" and the previously mentioned rocker, "Mr. November". Without a doubt, one of the finest indie-rock records out there.
The National Boxer
Boxer is the kind of record that takes its listener in, and if you listen carefully enough, it reveals a beautiful story about a desperate man and a crazy woman, living in their own, dizzy world. The album is much darker than it's predecessor, mostly hinting at their melancholic songs (such as "Daughters of the...") or the bombastic ones (like "About Today"), but it also contains rocking riffs in songs such as "Apartment Story" or "Mistaken for Strangers". Boxer is without a doubt one of the fullest, atmospheric Indie-rock albums out there. Apart from the two previously mentioned tracks, recommended for listeners are "Slow Show", "Guest Room" and "Fake Empire".
The Replacements Let It Be
With 'Let it Be', the Replacements showed everyone who's the boss. It was rocking. It was artsy. It was fast. It was beautiful. It's punky, garagey rock n' roll in it's best and purest form. Just feel the sheer emotions throughout the middle-tracks 'Androgynous', 'Black Diamond' (which is actually a Kiss-cover) and 'Unsatisfied', not to mention 'Answering Machine' and 'Sixteen Blues'; bop-out to the fun of 'Seen Your Video', 'Gary's Got a Boner' or 'Tommy Gets his Tonsils Out'; the release of 'I Will Dare', 'Favorite Thing' and 'We're Coming Out'. Yeah, I actually think that was all of the tracks. Classic album.
The Replacements Tim
How do you follow up one of the best punk-rock albums of all time? You just shake things up a little, make it different and innovative, AND keep up the amazing songwriting. This record does not contain a dull moment, and with more than enough splendid tracks to pick from, it's one of the best around. The bookends of this thing alone is enough, not to mention the wonderful 'Left of the Dial,' which is just about the perfect (post their punk-era) Replacements-song.
The Rolling Stones Exile on Main St.
The Rolling Stones, nitty and gritty. The pure raw sound of rock'n'roll roots found on this record is unmatchable, and the collection of songs is pretty much perfect. Going from psychedelic rockers such as "Rocks Off" or "All Down the Line" to the tender ballads like "Let it Loose" and "Shine a Light", into the more bluesy classics which are "Stop Breaking Down" (Robert Johnson-cover) and "Ventilator Blues", on the latter where Mick Jagger explains exactly how you feel after the Roskilde Festival - but it also transcends in the up-lifting, life-afirming songs that are "Loving Cup" and "Tumbling Dice". This is, indeed, one of the greatest albums ever made. Jagger howls and rasps like a wild dog, and Keith plays incredibly fierce. This is the very essence of not only the Stones, but of what rock and roll really is.
The Smith Street Band No One Gets Lost Anymore
Judging from his lyrics, Wil Wagner might be one of the most sincere people in the world today. To think how this album can make me laugh, but also feel so blue, is amazing. I am in the firm belief that this band can do no wrong. Heartwarming songs with punch and gut, and excellent instrumentation as well, ofc. Just check out Sigourney Weaver, The Belly of Your Bedroom or Get High, See Mice.
The Smith Street Band South East Facing Wall
Every song is perfect and horribly recorded, and there is an honesty within each drunken slur that just cannot be matched. The EP was originally only the two first tracks, but got the following ones added once released digitally (btw if anyone has the original vinyl with only 2 tracks, I'm very interested). Especially the title-track and the final song are amazing.
The Smith Street Band Sunshine and Technology
The Smith Street Band's second album is another masterpiece, and I don't know why I never rated it 5 before now. Filled with lots of warm and clever lyrics, epic climaxes and huge sing-alongs, the band keeps things interesting all the way through. TSSB is the best band around today, period.
The Smith Street Band Throw Me in the River
Excellent production at the hands of Jeff Rosenstock, and great cohesion on this bad boy; another amazing album from Wil Wagner and co. 'Something I Can Hold in My Hands' and 'Surrender' is the best one-two opener in forever. This band is unstoppable!
The Who Who's Next
This masterpiece by The Who is one of my definite favorite albums. Every song is just amazing. There is nothing that stands up besides it. And with songs like the epic Baba O'Riley, the fist-full ballad Behind Blue Eyes, and finally the giant monster, Won't Get Fooled Again.
The Wonder Years The Greatest Generation
Few albums have the rare ability to really place both dread and hope into my heart like this album does, yet still maintaining the feeling that the outcome will be the latter. Not only are the lyrics and the delivery unbelievably powerful; they are even pushing the limits of Pop-Punk as we know it. It is so intense, yet so grandiose that it could have been executed on either a stadium, or in a small basement. To pick out only a few recommendable songs is a hard task, but if I must, I'd go with The Devil in My Bloodstream (featuring the lovely Laura Stevenson), I Just Want to Sell Out My Funeral and Passing Through a Screen Door.

Beach Slang Broken Thrills
Beastie Boys Paul's Boutique
The flow, the beats, the lyrics, the namedropping; this album's got it all, and is definitely one of the best and most important ones within the genre. Just give such cuts as Sounds of Science, Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun, Shadrach and What Comes Around a try - hell, just listen to the B-Boys Bouillabaisse and be impressed!
Black Sabbath Paranoid
This record is probably what metal is all about. Hard, catchy, solid and heavy sludge-like doom-riffs and soothing songs well-played by over-the-top musicians, lead by an immortal son of a bitch. Never before had an album contained so many powerful guitar chords, thanks to one of the greatest guitarists ever, Tony Iommi. "Paranoid" is essential in every collection, metal or not. Everyone has probably heard the title track and Iron Man, while more recomendable tracks are War Pigs and Hand of Doom.
Black Sabbath Master of Reality
The first true, and best, example of a sludgy, stoner metal record. Heavy as fuck and better than almost anything, this album has passed the test of time. The extreme riffage that is 'Into the Void', the incredibly heavy use of drumming on 'Children of the Grave', the thrill that is 'Sweet Leaf'. Black Sabbath definitely cemented themselves as pioneers with this mastodon of an album.
Blink-182 Enema of the State
Bob Dylan Blonde on Blonde
Bob Dylan Highway 61 Revisited
Although this record contains some of the best tracks ever written (such as Desolation Row and Like a Rolling Stone), it still lacks a little something that makes it a 5. Variables that keeps it from being so, are tracks like Queen Jane Approximately and From a Buick 6, which just aren't as good as the rest, the first one being too long for it's own good.
Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend
Bob Marley and The Wailers Exodus
From the dark, swirling guitar-licks to the bare and simple, yet undeniably intoxicating basslines of Barrett, mixed with tight drumming and Marley's incredible, laid-back singing-voice, this album provides some of the most solid material in the history of music. It's relaxed nature, beautiful music and inspired lyrics stand harmoniously perfect in-between Bob's political themes and texts, and his majiuana-loving reggae. The title song, Three Little Birds and Jammin' are three different, but great displays of his music and this album. Are rarely listen to Reggae, but when I do, it (stereotypically) has to be Bob!
Bomb the Music Industry! Scrambles
Bon Iver For Emma, Forever Ago
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Jesse Lacey put all his heart and all of his emotions into the making of the lyrics for this record. Just the title itself, ?The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me?, gives a reflection into just how depressing this album might get. That the musicianship is nailed spot on constantly, is just what makes this record as much of a classic as it is; as wild and raucous as it may sound in songs like Limousine or You Won?t Know, as controlled is it in Jesus Christ or Sowing Season. Do yourself a favor: put on your headphones on a dark winter?s day, and enjoy this record in full.

If the entire album was on par with 'Dream House', this would be the best album ever. But still, it's an amazingly consistent achievement and the cover is to die for.
Death The Sound of Perseverance
Death Individual Thought Patterns
Death Cab for Cutie Transatlanticism
One of the first indie-records I ever bought, one of the first albums I ever loved. The lyrics (A Lack of Color), musicianship (We Looked Like Giants) and atmosphere (the title-track) found here is quite unique, and takes me back every time I hear it. Masterfully done.

An amazing pop-punk record, and one of the best to come out of its genre since the early 00s.
Eagles Hotel California
An album that brings me a deep feeling of nostalgia thanks to my parents who've introduced me to it. Simply just amazing and incredibly important.
Eminem The Marshall Mathers LP
As a bunch of Eminem's skits have shown, not many believed in him, but with the Slim Shady LP he showed them otherwise. But it wasn't until this mastodon of an album he showed them that there was no one quite like him, and no one is up to this day. The greatest moments on the album is Stan, Kim and Marshall Mathers.

Fleetwood Mac Rumours
Frank Turner Love, Ire & Song
Frightened Rabbit The Midnight Organ Fight
A huge leap from their debut, Frightened Rabbit?s second album, The Midnight Organ Fight, is much more bombastic, well-executed and filled to the rim with some of the most bare, honest and shaking lyrics ever sung. Vocalist and guitarist, Scott Hutchison, wants to stand tall and proud, with his charming, Scottish vocal-delivery, and with the pounding of fellow band member and brother, Grant Hutchison, by his side; however, instead of being either this or too melancholic, the grandiose musicianship mixed with Scott?s vocals, makes this record have a certain nerve throughout the entire record that drags you in, fearing that things suddenly might fall apart. Just give The Modern Leper, Heads Roll Off or My Backwards Walk a go, and you?ll see for yourself.
Fugazi 13 Songs
Genesis Selling England by the Pound
What is probably considered the band's Magnum Opus, Selling England by the Pound is one of the greatest progressive rock achievements of all time. Steve Hackett's guitarriffs and sound could in a single record take credit for the inspiration of the way bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest sound like. Furthermore, is Peter Gabriels voice and lyrics at it's finest, and the simple beauty of the albums title is something respectable in itself. There are only few dull moments to be found (some parts of The Battle of Epping Forest, perhaps), but to point out the highlights, one has to say the title track, Firth of Fifth and The Cinema Show.

Iron Maiden Somewhere in Time
Iron Maiden taking a step into a more progressive sound than before, making their strongest album since The Number of the Beast (not taking Live after Death into account). First being thrown right into the title track, Caught Somewhere in Time, and forwarding on to a journey through time and space with gallopping basslines and futuristic, tight riffs and solos. Wasted Years, Stranger in a Strange Land and Alexander the Great has some amazing guitarwork, and are recommendable for anyone who especially enjoys Adrian Smiths songwriting.
Iron Maiden Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden Live After Death
This live album's raw and high-energetic sound and feel is just incredible, and unlike most other live albums made. Just listen to Bruce Dickinson howl on Hallowed Be Thy Name, Steve Harris galopping basslines throughout, and the guitar-dualism that was Smith & Murray. Pure metal at it's best!

There are no words to describe how I felt when I heard a Pop/Hip-Hop album in the year 2010 sound just as good as the best of the best classics through the history of music. Recommended are Runaway, Monster and All of the Lights.
King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King
Kvelertak Kvelertak
'Kvelertak' is the kind of album that takes what you thought you knew about music (Hardcore, Classic Rock and some Black Metal), blends it with tales of Northern Gods, and spits it out in your face. And no matter how brutal and raw it might sound (pos on this point, Kurt Ballou did an amazing job on the production), you keep coming back. Just listen to the riffs and shouts in songs such as Ulvetid or Udrydd dei Svake, the rock 'n roll-feeling of Blodtoerst, or the grooviness of Mjoed.

Led Zeppelin How the West Was Won
The definite Led Zeppelin-record. With songs spanning from their debut to Houses of the Holy, sublime musicianship and an all-together well-played performance (two separate nights), this live-album contains the back-bone of Hard Rock as we know it. Plant's gritty howls, Page's blistering guitars, Jones' thick layer of bass, and Bonzo's mastodontic pounding make sure that anyone with just the slightest hint of chesthair will enjoy this triple-CD packed with 150 minutes of Rock n' Roll at it's finest.
Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy
letlive. Fake History
Malk De Koijn Smashhit in Aberdeen
Malk De Koijn's first album is also their greatest one, and due to it's production, rhyming and innovative use of the Danish language, it's earned itself the title as one of the best Rap/Hip-hop albums of all time. Main numbers are Jagt, Kosmisk Kaos and Mio.
Malk De Koijn Sneglzilla
Mastodon Leviathan
Mastodon Crack the Skye
Megadeth Rust in Peace
Metallica Master of Puppets
Metallica Ride the Lightning
Although the title for Metallica's best album often (and understandable) goes to Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning is my personal favorite due to it's rough production (going just a notch above their first album, Kill 'Em All, which may be too rough for some), James Hetfield's very young and harsh vocals, and the incredible musicianship (even Lars was great back then). Fade to Black, Creeping Death and For Whom the Bell Tolls may be some of the best thrash songs ever made.
Mew Frengers
Frengers might be the album I've listened to the most times. Ever. My parents bought it back in 2002 when I was just a kid at the age of 9 or 10, and since then it has been spun quite a few times. Just listen to the pure beauty of Symmetry or 156; the prowess of Am I Wry? No or Snow Brigade; the grandiose anthemic powers of She-Spider or Comforting Sounds. Yes, this album is indeed the best Danish record ever made, not to mention one of the greatest world-wide. It is a record as known to me as a good friend, yet still the haunting parts can take over with such force and deliverance that it is taken for a stranger. Not quite friends, not quite strangers; Frengers.

Mineral The Power of Failing

Nails Abandon All Life
Just a bit better than its predecessor, Unsilent Death, Nails has made an extremely fast and aggressive record that should be on several "Top of the year"-lists. I sure am looking forward to see what their next offer to the scene might be.
Neil Young Rust Never Sleeps
Neil Young On the Beach
If side A was just as enchanting as side B, this record could easily have been a 5. The three last tracks of the album is pure enjoyment, and unlike anything Young has made before. It seems so relaxed, yet so fragile and emotional. Acceptance, clarity... and bitterness. And some sweet harmonica. Recommended tracks are Revolution Blues, See the Sky About to Rain and Side B.
Neil Young Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Neil Young Live Rust
Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
NOFX The Decline
Pearl Jam Ten
This album has an incredible mix of alternative rock and grunge that just speaks to me unlike any other of it's time. Even Flow, Alive and Jeremy are essential singles, but to further dive in, give 'Release' or 'Black' a try.
Pianos Become the Teeth The Lack Long After
Pink Floyd Animals
I can't help myself when it comes to Animals. It's probably the first, pure progressive rock-album I really liked. Excellent musicianship, and a hell of a record. Putting in recs here would be stupid, since there's only 5 tracks, 2 of which are very alike, and very short.
Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here
The incredibly epic I-V and VI-IX parts of Shine on You Crazy Diamond are nothing less than spectacular, and the title track and 'Have a Cigar' are amazing as well.
Pink Floyd The Wall
Pink Floyd's longest album, the Wall, is a story told too many times, told in a different way. Incredible and unmatched. Most people ought to know songs such as Comfortably Numb, Hey You and Another Brick in the Wall Part II.
Pixies Doolittle
Prince Purple Rain
Great replay-value on this sucker. The guitars are adventurous and the hooks are catchy!
Queen A Night at the Opera
Queens of the Stone Age Rated R
R.E.M. Automatic for the People
Radiohead The Bends
Although not as complex, nor as popular, as it's follower, The Bends is the greatest mix of Brit Pop, Alt Rock and Electronica around, and an album which gets as close to a five as possible, although still not ranking high enough to get one. The best tracks on this album are Fake Plastic Trees, My Iron Lung and the title track.
Radiohead In Rainbows
Refused The Shape of Punk to Come
Rush Moving Pictures
Rush' biggest commercial success, and it's easy to see why. On Side-A they deliver three of their greatest, and most radio-freindly songs throughout their discography and wonderful melodies as the immortal Tom Sawyer, the soothing Red Barchetta or Limelight, to the hard-hitting instrumental, YYZ. On Side-B, however, Rush becomes more innovative, and takes up what they started on Permanent Waves; a more raggae-feel prog-rock, perfectly displayed in Vital Signs; however, The Camera Eye and Witch Hunt are not to be overlooked.
Rush 2112
I know it's only the title-track which is actually worthy of a 5, but the remainders on the B-side are still great (especially Something for Nothing). And '2112' is probably the greatest piece of progrock ever put together.
Rush Permanent Waves
Rush Hemispheres
With it's entry track filling up side A of the vinyl, and being almost as good as part I, half the record is already classic. Side B has the album's two singles, both worth of being rated very high, and finally there is La Villa Strangiato, the greatest instrumental-track period.
Rush Exit...Stage Left
Sigur Ros Agaetis Byrjun
Slayer Reign in Blood
An intense journey to hell and back. Reign in Blood is the most evil and shredding album ever made, but still it's so fantasticly joyous to listen to. The musicianship is top notch, and Tom Araya screams and rasps quicker and more sinister than Hell Spawns themselves. Angel of Death and Raining Blood are closer to real sadism than anything else, and everything in between is just bloody.

Why choose between being a Beatles fan or a Rolling Stone fan as you had to once, when you can love them both? This incredible album is by far the band's greatest, and very few other records can best it. The high-lights of the album is Something, Oh! Darling, and the Abbey Road Medley.

The Gaslight Anthem Handwritten
The Horrible Crowes Elsie
With The Horrible Crowes, Brian Fallon proves that although his main-band, The Gaslight Anthem, contains heavy portions of Springsteen-ish raucousness, his potential strides beyond his aspirations as the next "Boss", and digs into the realms of Nick Cave and Tom Waits, while still keeping one foot in his roots as a rocking americana-influenced poet a la The River or Darkness on the Edge of Town (Springsteen). Especially tracks like Go Tell Everyone, Behold the Hurricane and Ladykiller depicts the true prowess of Brian Fallon. One should not forget his talented friend and fellow musician, Ian Perkins, however, as he produces some incredible guitar-work, and has done an overall excellent job on the record. If you did not like the music of The Gaslight Anthem, perhaps you should turn to 'Elsie" instead - because although the lyrical themes often are the same, the music itself, and how it's approached, is entirely different.

The National High Violet
The National Trouble Will Find Me
Rarely has melancholy sounded as warm as it does on this record. Stepping away from the fragile and staticly haunting production of High Violet, and into warmer territory, the National did what I wanted them to do the most; make an album that is just as dark and brooding as it's predecessor, but with some light and hope at the end of it. Plus, the procution and addition of new instruments here and there works wonders. 'This is the Last Time,' 'Pink Rabbits,' 'Graceless' and 'I Need My Girl' are among the band's absolute best songs.
The Offspring Smash
The Replacements Pleased To Meet Me
It might not reach the brilliance of their two previous records, but 'Pleased to Meet Me' is still an amazing record with plenty of hard-hitting songs like 'Alex Chilton' (the musician who also features on the album's final and stunning song, 'Can't Hardly Wait'), or alternative takes like 'I Don't Know', 'Nightclub Jitters' or 'Skyway', not to mention the emotional drives of 'The Ledge' and 'Never Mind'. An amazing rollercoaster ride.
The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers
The first Stones' album I ever heard. It's just so rocking, so emotional. Can't You Hear Me Knocking, Moonlight Mile, Wild Horses and Brown Sugar are classics!
The Rolling Stones Let It Bleed
A wonderful album, despite of the terrible theme of it. The tracks feature so many aspects of how the world was wrong back then, and while many of the songs are warm, most of them are incredibly sad while feeling like nothing else. The album might lack a tiny bit halfway through, but the hightlights more than make up for that. Most notably are the songs Gimme Shelter, Monkey Man and You Can't Always Get What You Want.
The Smith Street Band Don't Fuck With Our Dreams
One of the finest EPs I've encountered yet: it is so damn cohesive and filled with brilliant lyrics and instrumentation. Folk-Punk done right! Recommended tracks are the title track and Kids.

'Reconstruction Site' is a strange album. With some amazing and mysterious lyrics by John K. Samson (including some from the view of a cat), folky tracks with up-beat tempo, and Punk-like guitar madness here and there, this weird journey takes you from Birthday Parties in 1972, to being taught French by a Penguin on Antarctica. Just give tracks like Plea from a Cat Named Virtute, One Great City!, or The Reasons a try.
The Weakerthans Left and Leaving
The Who Tommy
The Who Live at Leeds
This is probably the best Live Album that has ever been recorded.
The Who Quadrophenia
Quadrophenia is without a doubt one of the best and strongest concept-albums ever made. Clocking in at more than 80 minutes, this double-album doesn?t contain a single weak moment; the consistency is amazing. Following the story of young teenager, Jimmy, and his weary mind through the ?Mods-against-Rockers?-times of the 60s, this Rock Opera is filled with anthemic stadium-rock prowess at its finest, mixed with self-realization and intimate ballads. Just listen to the groovy basslines of The Real Me, the monstrous pounding of drums and use of vocal-delivery on Love, Reign O?er Me, or the lightning-fast guitar-chords of The Punk Meets the Godfather.
The Wonder Years Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing
Thin Lizzy Live and Dangerous
Tool Lateralus
The ultimate progressive, metal-listening. Without even noticing how heavy or hard-hitting the album is, every song flows in it's own unique way, yet maintaining a cohessive feel to it unlike most other bands today. Recommended songs are Ticks and Leeches, the title-track, and The Grudge.
Touche Amore/La Dispute Searching for a Pulse/The Worth of the World
An amazing Extended Play, and I don't think I've heard material this good from La Dispute before or since.

Timeless melodic punk with incredible and edgy atmosphere, both heartfelt and aggressive lyrics, and time lengths spanning from only a single to almost seven minutes. I highly endorse this Austrian record to you all. A hard 4 (4.2)

Oh yeah, and the speach from "Suburbia" kicks off the record. Which is sweet.

An excellent addition to the discography of one of the most exciting bands out there today.

This album took me quite a while to digest (and rate). It is a long and winding road - and I mean that in the best way. It contains so many influences and nuances, combining sheer beauty and pure aggression. Plus, it is always interesting to hear a female-fronted band's vocals sound so great (and fucking furious).

Queens of the Stone Age Songs for the Deaf
This tight, lenghty album might be the finest rock album in the 21st century. Not only does QotSA include Josh Homme, but on this album the band also included Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighers) on drums. The songs I prefer the most are The Mosquito Song, A Song for the Deaf and The Sky is Falling.
Queens of the Stone Age ...Like Clockwork
This is not the old QotSA. This is not the Era Vulgaris-QotSA. This is Josh Homme growing up, making a much more mature album, blending in more artistic and flowing song structures than on previous records. It might not be what everyone expected; maybe it is actually better than that. But either way, it's an excellent record and definitely a step forwards in comparison to the band's two previous records.

The album tends to get tiresome towards the end due to most songs not being quite as good as the the first half, but Badmotorfinger is still a large 4 and contains some of Soundgarden's best songs. Outshined, Rusty Cage, Jesus Christ Pose, Slaves & Bulldozers; all classics!
Soundtrack (Film) Pulp Fiction
I guess this album is more of a 4, especially seeing as it's a soundtrack, but the songs put into the context of the movie just makes it too awesome not to be rated a 4.5

One cannot deny that Brian Fallon still is an amazing creator of unbelievable hooks and melodies (see 'Rollin' and Tumblin'', 'Ain't That a Shame', 'Dark Places' and 'Stay Vicious'). Still the best fucking band around.

The Menzingers Rented World
A great follow up to the album of the decade, Rented World sees the Menzingers putting more effort into singular songs than the album as a whole. This of cause means that it is missing a bit of red thread, but still, the album is crafty and it has some excellent standouts, like In Remission, Rodent and Transient Love.

An amazing bridge between their last record, "Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers", and it's follower, "Alligator", this Extended Play shows the easier sides off "Sad Songs", but very often builds up epic song-formats (like in "About Today") from "Alligator". Beautiful and fragile as it is, "Cherry Tree" is one of the best places to start getting into The National.

This album contains some of their best songs ('Cigarettes & Saints' and 'Stained Glass Ceilings'), but it doesn't reach neither The Greatest Generation or Suburbia. Still, this is an excellent follow up and it would be unfair of me to rate it anything less than a large 4 (4,25).

Trap Them Darker Handcraft

As if Tom Waits took a walk through Darkness on the Edge of Town while making up stories about angels and vicious creatures. It does tend to drag a little in the middle, but the album is still excellent throughout.
Turbowolf Turbowolf
U2 Achtung Baby
U2 The Joshua Tree
U2's greatest release to date, getting in just above Achtung Baby. Bono and the Edge are at their prime on this album, and throughout the entire record it doesn't get boring. The three best tracks are the three first ones, although I'd recommend anyone to just take the entire album in one sitting.

Amazing lyrics and vocals, Soupy tells a great story and sure delivers. The instrumentation is pretty average, sure, but it has some great ideas - the only problem is, soon as they're showcased, it's as if they're hidden too far away in the production. So yeah, not quite on-par with TWY, but still a really good album with some incredibly heartfelt songs.

The album definitely reaches it's climax during the one-two punch in 'Departure' and 'Ground Control', while 'Careers' and closer 'Emotions in the Way' are also excellent standouts, but it does lack the intensity it's the predecessor, 'Efforts and Means'. But still, a really great album, and a large 3.5!

Loving the up-beat punkish and thrashy hardcore going faster than 180 bpm, but the reggae-parts don't do anything for me, and it really drags this down for me.

For about the first 20 minutes of the album, the band doesn't really get to me, but by the end of Sun of Nothing and through the entire Ants of the Sky, they showcase some excellent and enjoyable music, leading into a great first 1,5 minutes of Prequel to the Sequel. Unfortunately, it is not until White Walls, this excellence shows again (although the track before it, Viridian also provides some nice guitar work), making some parts of the album take forever between the aforementioned parts of the record. All in all, this is a great album, although it drags on a bit in some places ? and I also seem to enjoy the mellow paces of the album more than the others. The vocalist's growls tend to tire me a lot, but the musicianship is sublime, making a nice hint to Jazz Fusion at places, fused with their progressive metal.

A very large 3.5, it just needs a little extra to be a 4... Maybe if they'd cut out those first seconds of The Rock or if Pot of Gold was less predictable

An excellent EP, but the production seems rather weak at times, which brings it down to a 3.5 - but this band definitely has the potential to do big things in the future. Hold on, as I'm about to listen to their debut-album!

Album's quality drops whenever I listen to this. Solid as it is, his narcissism annoys me, and at times it feels as if he tries to wrap it into too much bombastic production and uneven sampling; fx Blood on the Leaves, which at first seemed charming, now sounds to me as someone ruining a Nina Simone classic. Definitely not anywhere near MBDTF. Still, it has its excellent moments in songs such as Black Skinhead and Hold My Liquor. Most certainly an album that will divide people's opinions. And that is an achievement on its own.

Although far from Young's strongest outing from the 70s, this album see's good ol' Uncle Niels doing what he always does: exactly what he wants to. It's laid-back, relaxing and very accessible, and has a few standout-songs such as "Goin' Back", "Motorcycle Mama" and the title track.

Still, it's a great release and I'd recommend people to check out tracks like "Handle With Care", "Not Alone Any More" (Orbison-crooning) and "Tweeter and the Monkey Man".

A very interesting album, with a concept telling stories of all the rooms of the house said concept is about. The slow-paced songs are occasionally beautiful and moving, but the faster and more aggressive songs often come off as too forced and not nearly as enjoyable. Still pretty good, though.

I'm missing (and I know this goes under "Compilation", but still) Keep Yourself Alive, Brighton Rock, Love of My Life, and so many more. It'd be better to buy the three earlier collections (Volume I, II & III).rAlso, I hate these "Greatest Hits". But the records a fine way to get into Queen for newer fans. But I'd recommend just going from either their first record and up, or from "A Night at the Opera."

A pretty needless release from a normally excellent band; most of these songs have either been previously released on singles, EPs or deluxe editions. The only reason it's receiving a 3 is my huge love and admiration for not only this band, but especially Brian Fallon who is the primus motor of the Gaslight Anthem. Luckily, "Get Hurt" is a lot better!

A little too grandiose and pretentious in comparisson to it's content. It seems to be building up and building up towards something it never really reaches, and just ends up rather dull. But surely, the instrumentation is excellent. But I have to keep this at 3 (a large one, though).
