5.0 classic
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Cathartic. If i had to describe this album in one word, that would be it. If you're pissed, listening to this releases all your anger and leaves you winded at the end. The album is a definite grower, as it takes a few listens for the massiveness of the album to really hit you. And with every listen comes something new, some new emotion felt during a particular song. Jesse Lacey leads us through this heavy, dense album that changed the way I viewed music; maybe it'll do the same for you.

the perfect summer album. pretty much sums it all up

Manchester Orchestra Mean Everything to Nothing
This album holds and will always hold a special place in my heart as the album that got me through the toughest time in my life. Andy Hull's voice is majestic, possessing a massive range of singing styles, being capable of soft (album highlight I Can Feel a Hot One) to shouting (Shake It Out) and never sounding uneasy. The guitar work is excellent, but it's the overall composition which takes this album to the next level. This is the album that made me fully realize how much i love indie. Also, contains the best hidden track ever in Jimmy, He Whispers.
Modest Mouse The Moon & Antarctica
Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
Simply put, one of the greatest albums ever. Jeff Mangum's divisive voice wails over wonderfully diverse instrumentation and takes us through a 40 minutes journey that will change you as a person once you're through listening to the album, whether you like it or not. so listen to it, now. EVERYONE

This is the album that got me into music, really really got me into music. It broke down pretty much every mental barrier that I had concerning music, opening countless doors which I am still discovering. I owe my love for music to this album. Anyone who thinks i'm a pretentious jerk about music can thank this album right here.
Right Away, Great Captain! The Eventually Home
Saves the Day In Reverie
Say Anything ...Is a Real Boy
My go-to sexual frustration album. I held off on listening to this for no good reason except for the fact that Do Better sounded like it came from a band that didn't have much potential. Bemis delivers a stunning performance, both vocally and intstrumentally, creating a chaotic atmosphere that is sexually angsty both lyrically and musically, a feat that cannot be understated. Songs go through as many as 4 tempo changes, making for a hectic listen that constantly keeps the listener on his toes.

The Mars Volta De-Loused in the Comatorium
The Mars Volta Frances the Mute
My TMV listening experience went something like this: i listened to de-loused, was amazed and intrigued with this hard rock/prog sound, and promptly held off on listening to frances because it was too long and seemed like too challenging of a listen. finally got over it, listened to frances, and realized how much of an idiot i had been. frances the mute expands on everything hinted at on its predecessor and then some, creating TMV's masterpiece. L'via L'viaquez is the obvious highlight, but the whole album is brilliant and also flows with an ease that shouldn't be found in a full-length album.

This was a reulctant 3 the first time i heard it. Oh, how times have changed. The definition of a grower, the understated sound means that every listen brings a new intricacy that was unnoticed before. Matt Berninger's baritone is absolutely beautiful. His lyrics are genius ("i'm a birthday candle in a circle of black girls" how anyone can dislike that is beyond me) You can see that Devendorf is on his way to becoming the best drummer in indie. The first installment in The National's journey to adulthood, the teenage years avoiding growing up, is the best.
The National Boxer
The National Trouble Will Find Me
the national manage to sound new and exactly like themselves in the same record
The Weakerthans Reconstruction Site
My go-to happy album. Whenever anything good happens to me, I listen to this album. When i'm trying to feel better about myself, i listen to this album. Samson pens the greatest lyrical album ever in this masterpiece, with songs like "One Great City!" and "Reconstruction Site" being particular lyrical masterpieces. The musicianship is superb as well, giving us a nice variety that keeps the listener on his toes. Also, eric's review for this is top 10 reviews on this site. go check it out.

Say Anything In Defense of the Genre
the first 3/4 of the album is classic, but the last quarter is such a letdown that it brings it down to a 4.5 which is unfortunate. say anything cover a lot of ground with this album, with songs that you would find in bars to showtime tunes to pop punk. also, lots of guest vocal appearances.

Truly mind-blowing, this is one of those songs/albums that everyone needs to hear, regardless of his or her preferred music taste. At 29 minutes, the song covers a lot of ground. It's filled with metal riffs and unintelligible lyrics, but the best part is undoubtedly the piano duet, which is one of the best musical sections ever recorded.

the only good parts which keep this at an average album are the breakdowns and the mellower parts. most of the time he's just screaming and it's not melodic or pleasant to the ear at all. disappointing, i was expecting to like this a lot.
