Standalone, Heritage is a fantastic album. However, when put into context with Opeth's previous releases Heritage fails to measure up.

You can literally sing Epitaph to the intro of the first song, but otherwise, critically this album is excellent, it effectively merges flamenco and prog.

3.0 good
Adebisi Shank This is the Album
Against Me! Vivida Vis!
Agalloch Pale Folklore
Anberlin Cities
Anberlin featuring redundant lyrics, dull structures, songs that have remarkably little to offer, ubiquitous filler, and surprisingly, several moments of brilliance. (*Fin) is the perfect closer and deserves a 4.5 however the album fails to build to this point. It's a shame, I wanted to like this album.
Apocalyptica Apocalyptica
Armistice Armistice
Ashes Divide Keep Telling Myself It's Alright
Believer Transhuman
Brand New Daisy
Buckethead In Search Of The - Volume 1: 'I'
Buckethead Electric Sea
Burial Untrue
Coldplay Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
David Maxim Micic Bilo 3.0
This album makes no sense to me. Some moments are shockingly brilliant and beautiful while others are unnecessarily abrasive without any real driving melody.
Devin Townsend Project Deconstruction
This album bores me beyond belief. I dont understand the point of the relentless drumbeats or poorly done heavy sound. It all seems like such a waste for such and intricately layered album.

OOIOO Gold and Green

Red Innocence and Instinct
Soen Cognitive
The Mars Volta Octahedron
Not their best album but it has grown on me. One has to learn to appreciate each TMV album individually and ignore the larger context of the bands previous releases. That being said this album is good but not great.

2.5 average
10 Years Feeding the Wolves
Abigail Washburn City of Refuge
Anathema Weather Systems
This album is a mixed bag, it offers some awesome moments blended with some awful ones.
Apocalyptica 7th Symphony
Breaking Benjamin Phobia
Breaking Benjamin We Are Not Alone
Breaking Benjamin Saturate
Chevelle Hats Off to the Bull
Surprisingly not as inept as I had initially expected. Chevelle have created a catchy mainstream album, that despite lacking ambition and interesting instrumental parts, rises head and shoulders above its predecessors.

Placebo Battle For The Sun
For every interesting moment, there is an equally disappointing one. Never displaying brilliance however, this album proves another mediocre release.
Puscifer "V" Is For Vagina
Radiohead Pablo Honey
The Mars Volta Scab Dates
Thirty Seconds to Mars This Is War
Those Poor Bastards Gospel Haunted
This album is either somewhat decent with some unique ideas... or terrible, I cant decide which.
Yes 90125
Yes Fly from Here

2.0 poor
32 Leaves Welcome to the Fall
Breaking Benjamin Dear Agony
Bruce Springsteen The Rising
Coldplay Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall
Absolutely nothing new or special. The members of Coldplay do nothing to demonstrate any
musical ability and instead create simplistic catchy pop tunes, completely lacking any
musical merit.

SORNE House of Stone: Death I
Huge disappointment. Nearly everything that made the House of Stone incredible is lacking
here, most notably the rhythms.
Staind The Illusion of Progress
The All-American Rejects Move Along
The Bravery The Sun and the Moon
The Fray How to Save a Life

1.5 very poor
10 Years Into the Half Moon
Yes... this was before they evolved into a radio rock band... but listen to "The Autumn Effect" and tell me they aren't one of the best radio rock bands out there. As such, this album does little to display the bands later direction and is, as a whole, relatively poor.
