5.0 classic
Agalloch The White
If for some reason you're a fan of Agalloch and you haven't heard "The White", you must rectify this immediately. For those who have already heard it, you probably know where I'm going with this. Not only do I think it often matches the quality of "The Mantle", but it's one of my favorite atmospheric folk records of all time. Essential listening for fans of Agalloch, neofolk, or even just fans of atmospheric metal/folk. You can't go wrong with this gem.
Agalloch The Mantle
Black Sabbath Master of Reality
Bob Dylan Blood on the Tracks
Captain, We're Sinking The Future Is Cancelled
Death Symbolic
Iron Maiden Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
A dark, original concept album and one of Iron Maiden's best works. The first five songs are pure genius.

4.5 superb
Agalloch Pale Folklore
Asya Sergeeva Heart of Winter
some of the best instrumental folk music I've ever heard. Her primary instrument is the celtic harp, and her playing is extremely poignant and intricate. It's worth checking out just for her harp playing, but the addition of violins, cellos, and pianos take it to a whole new level. Just listen to it
Bob Dylan Blonde on Blonde
Bob Dylan The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio, the GOD of metal. Enough said.

Elliott Smith Either/Or
Felix Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64
Franz Schubert Unfinished Symphony No. 8 in B minor
Franz Schubert Schubert: Trout Quintet
The whole thing is great, but my rating specifically is for the 'Arpeggione Sonata'. A gorgeous piece by one of the finest composers of the early romantic era. Great for helping you fall asleep at night or just unwind after a stressful day.

Motion City Soundtrack My Dinosaur Life
My personal favorite album by Motion City Soundtrack. It contains some of the biggest hooks in the band's career, but there's even a song that mentions Zelda: The Ocarina of Time!!

Sorority Noise Joy, Departed
Nothing short of a fantastic sophomore effort by Sorority Noise...their debut was enjoyable, but this album brings the feels on a whole new level. They've matured both as musicians and songwriters with Joy, Departed

Agalloch Ashes Against the Grain

Alessandro Marcello Marcello: 6 Concertos La Cetra & Concerto in D Min
Alessandro Marcello is one of the early/forgotten composers of the baroque period of Classical music. If you're thinking of checking out his works, you can't go wrong with his Oboe Concerto in D Minor. Very underrated composer!

Nachtreich/Spectral Lore The Quivering Lights
Still only 7 votes? Excellent split by Nachtreich/Spectral Lore that blends together elements of neofolk/classical/black metal without ever losing a sense of cohesion. Highly recommended, especially in the colder months of fall and winter.

Definitely not a bad starting point for anyone not familiar with NUFAN's music. Containing songs that span their entire career, "All The Best Songs" rewards its listener with quality jams that represent their softer side as well as their fast-paced, early punk days.

gonna have to agree that this is pretty damn great - the vox rule, the riffs are crushing, and fiddles are used sparingly and effectively to give the album an epic, yet varied sound. it's nothing new to the genre, but it's done exceptionally well.

Great EP by the lead vocalist of Captain, We're Sinking. These tracks are much more upbeat than the slow burners found on "Little Wounds." It's more like "The Future is Cancelled" Part 2. This guy never fails to impress!

I still remember having this soundtrack on casette and listening it to repeatedly as a kid (as well as watching the movie excessively of course). All nostalgia aside, this soundtrack holds up surprisingly well and is worth looking into even if you're not huge on the MK series.

The Early November are back with perhaps their most solid release to date. "In Currents" is emo-rock at its
finest and Ace Enders has improved quite a bit in the vocal department. The best alternative rock album I've
heard all year.

Various Artists The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute
This is how a tribute album should be done. Many of the best songs of Tony Sly's career are all rolled into one package and performed by some pretty damn respectable bands (Lagwagon, Bad Religion, etc.) Some of the versions sound similar to Tony's, while others are completely different. A fine release and a fitting way to say goodbye to a truly talented and underrated musician. R.I.P. Tony Sly, may your spirit live on in these songs.
