5.0 classic
AFI Black Sails in the Sunset
Malleus Maleficarum is easily the best when it comes to their punk era (pre-STS). After I heard that, I gradually discovered how much of a breakthrough this album was for the band. One of the best.
AFI Sing the Sorrow
AFI The Art of Drowning
One of the first real punk albums I ever heard. It changed my life. To the pure insanity of Smile, the technicality of The Despair Factor, and the gracing existance of Morning Star, there are so many noteworthy parts of this album.
Blaqk Audio CexCells
Catchy, diverse, just give me Bright Black Heaven so I can have more.
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
This is just as good as it gets. I rediscover this album every listen and it just gets better and better.
Glassjaw Worship and Tribute
Iron Maiden Powerslave
Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast
Iron Maiden A Matter of Life and Death
La Dispute Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...
Outstanding. Words cannot descirbe how heart-warming/breaking this album is.
La Dispute Wildlife
This album made me think that this band can do no wrong. The concept is perfect and this album shows a different side to the band. It won't hit you with a plethora of hardcore songs like Damaged Goods, New Storms, The Castle Builders, etc. Instead, it will show the genius efforts of a band that is clearly quite innovative. It isn't better than their debut, but it comes scary close.
My Chemical Romance I Brought You My Bullets...
My Chemical Romance Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge
Rise Against The Sufferer and the Witness
Welcome to the club. TSATW is Rise Against's most consistent as well as enthralling release. They really put their hearts into this one and I could go on and on and on about how every song here is nothing short of astounding but I don't need to. Survive is this band's best song (hell, the ending core may just be my favorite of all time), The Approaching Curve displayed excellent use of spoken word, the middle of Drones is one of the most powerful moments this band has created, and Roadside is this band's best ballad. I seriously could go on and on. A classic modern punk album indeed.

The bridge between immature pop-punk and fully-realized musician ship is Deja Entendu.
Circa Survive Blue Sky Noise
Fall Out Boy Folie a Deux
So comfortable with this at a 4.5. You can tell how much effort was put into making this a big album. I think what makes this such an enjoyable experience for me is the high creativity level.

This isn't a 4.5, but it is a gorgeous release. Not every track is fantastic, but the one's that are, really are. I hope they don't lose their charm with the next release. 4.2/5 Best Tracks: The Sower, This Ain't No Place For Animals, Lion Skin
Icarus the Owl Icarus the Owl
This is an album I keep coming back to this year and the more I do that, the more certain I am that this will be my album of the year. Every song is magnificent for one thing, it all flows seamlessly, and I think their sound is utter perfection. Complex yet easy to appreciate. rI can almost certainly say that conceptually, this is a band I've always dreamed of hearing and I don't think I'll ever get enough of itrBest Tracks: Touchstone, Chronos, Input., and the king of them all The Pharmacist

I sing this far too often for it to be any lower than this. So excited for their next release. Best Tracks: Swimming Pool, Legit Tatoo Gun, Rhode Island

Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating but this is epic at its best.

Just going to casually bump this up to a 4.5. Some of these are becoming some of my all time favorite songs.
Touche Amore/La Dispute Searching for a Pulse/The Worth of the World
Trophy Scars Holy Vacants

4.0 excellent
A Lot Like Birds Conversation Piece
AFI All Hallow's
AFI Burials
Alright. Realistically this is a 4. I really can't get over the lack of a softer track
which are normally this band's stronger points. I also can't get over how there are
literally no big moments in any of these songs. Like really, "The Face Beneath The Waves"
just needed some sort of epic bridge to be a worthy AFI closer. It had so much going for it
with the dissonance in the verses musically but oh well. Still, this has some great tracks
such as "The Embrace", "Wild", "A Deep Slow Panic", and "17 Crimes". Yet, nothing sticks
out as one of the best tracks I've ever heard by this band. Hopefully that will change. I
remember when "...But Home Is Nowhere" was my least favorite on STS.

Never would I have expected to like this, but I'll be damned if this isn't short of astounding. Best Tracks: Hospital For Souls, And The Snakes Start To Sing, Can You Feel My Heart
Chiodos All's Well That Ends Well
Chiodos Bone Palace Ballet
Circa Survive Violent Waves
It's better than a 4 and but not quite a 4.5. that's nothing excessive listens can't change. "Phantasmagoria" is perhaps the grooviest thing I've ever heard. This whole album is an experiment and it all succeeds. Still, I don't think it will ever beat BSN
Circa Survive Juturna
Converge All We Love We Leave Behind
This album was much more appraochable than anything else the band has done. For once, not only did I sense the displayed depth, I became immersed in it. The title track slays hard and lives up to its namesake.

Very consistent. This band is definitely going places. 3.7/5
Iron Maiden Somewhere in Time
Iron Maiden The Final Frontier
Iron Maiden Piece of Mind
James Blake Overgrown
Way superior to the debut LP. It's consistent from beginning to end. Tracks like I Am Sold, Life Round Here, and Retrograde are godly and they really show off his talent. On the other hand we have the title track, Our Love Comes Back, and Dlm for his elegance.

It's a great album. That's all there is to it. Fans should definitely like it. It didn't branch out far from what they have been doing, and it's very entertaining. Some of the riffs feel very similar to not only what is on this record but their previous ones as well, but it's nothing to fret over.
Silversun Pickups Swoon
Soundgarden King Animal

4.3/5 I really didn't expect to love this as much as I do. It's fun and passionate. Favorite Tracks: The Hands That Thieve, With Any Sort Of Certainty, and Your Day Will Come
Sylosis Conclusion of an Age
The Chariot One Wing
Easiest 4.5 I've given all year and quite possibly ever, for a band I tried first listen.
The Front Bottoms Rose
The Mars Volta De-Loused in the Comatorium
The Mars Volta Noctourniquet
It gets better and better with every listen because you realize that everything is in its right place here. Very innovative with insane synth/electronics. A lot of beauty and calling it prog almost seems inaccurate. Future punk? Is that what they called it? Seems about right.

Craig Owens' voice has went from in my opinion awesome and original, which was a very distinct high note, and was watered down. It's a shame cause I bet haters of Chiodos would have appreciated him more with this voice on a Chiodos record. Still like his previous band, Craig Owens still steals the show here. Songs are a lot less epic, but still the record is pretty catchy.
Defeater Empty Days and Sleepless Nights
Disturbed Believe
This is what the band should have built upon. A dark sound with passhion and meaning. It seems all they produce now are albums with great singles with 2 or 3 gems in between. Believe shows more than that. Remember is their best writing to date (with the exception of the killer Facade off Indestructable). Liberate, Prayer, Believe, and Awaken show how catchy and well written they can be, plus the vocals are top notch. Mistress and Darkness are the ballads that have yet to be topped. Sure Overburdened and The Night are pretty epic but these ones were the originals.

A great album all around but "The Frame" is in a class of its own. One of the best songs I've ever heard.
Rise Against The Black Market
The Black Market continues where Endgame and Appeal To Reason left off. Some moments will rgive you a Sufferer and the Witness vibe ("Bridges"), but other than that, this is an album rof its own. Tracks like the title track and "Zero Visibility" probably show that off the rbest. If you've heard "The Eco-Terrorist In Me", don't expect anything else to come close rto matching that here because that was this album's beast of a track. But, if you are a fan rof the band, the last 2 albums especially, this is definitely for you. rThe main disadvantages are that sometimes they are definitely stepping it up musically, but rothers are a bit plain. Also, Tim's vocals aren't bad by any means, but they feel a bit rlazier this time around.

A lot better than I had expected. Each song is pretty catchy and it all blends into a great mainstream album
Glassjaw Coloring Book
It was good...but every song dragged on and nothing was as hardcore as their old stuff. Still "Gold" is amazing!
I Kill Giants No One Will Ever Leave You
Only 2 actual songs that sound like they'd just be lost in the self-titled release somewhere. It's still good though
James Blake James Blake
It becomes painfully boring after Lindisfarne. But hey, before that, I can so understand the love for him.

2.5 average
Disturbed Asylum
Red Hot Chili Peppers I'm With You
The Word Alive Real
I liked Broken Circuit and Never Forget...even Play The Victim. The middle of the album is rboring as shit. Telle's vocals are literally doing nothing for me. Collapsing was pretty rfucking cool, but god, what happened to the moments this band could reach with We Know Who rYou Are and Evolution...kind of a shame. rI really think it is the lack of good choruses though...almost all of them are terrible

2.0 poor

Average as fuck. but i'm feeling nice so I'll say 2.75. Nothing really stands out, and when something does it's only somewhat. it's not bad, but...i prefered 21st Century Breakdown honestly.
