I'm here to confirm Jac's placement of this album at the top of the riff scale. A real treat of an album not only for black metal fanatics, but metalheads in general. Excellent atmosphere and hard riffs left and right highlighted by a touch of folk influence.

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.

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

Singles are so misleading. This has about 5 times the amount of aggression I anticipated based on the tracks
they released prior to the release of the album. Overall much more diverse than their debut, with lots of variety in
the vocals and an improvement in the lyrics as well.

Mustard Plug Masterpieces: 1991-2002
A highly enjoyable collection of quirky and upbeat ska songs from Mustard Plug. They are sure to please fans of Reel Big Fish and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones or even fans of newer ska bands like Streetlight Manifesto.
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.

Woljager Van't Liewen un Stiawen
One of the year's most overlooked gems is a real treat in the neofolk genre. With a sound that rests comfortably between german dark folk (think Forseti, Nebelung) and a more neoclassical approach along the lines of Vali and Musk Ox, the debut by Woljager is sure to have a wide appeal. Due to the large helping of variety and melancholy, it's easily one of the strongest neofolk albums in recent years.

Great Cynics Don't Need Much
Oak Pantheon In Pieces
Before hearing Oak Pantheon, I heard grumblings about how they're just an Agalloch clone. I've still yet to hear their debut, but based on the variety and skill on display on their sophomore effort, I'd say they're much more than that. Yes, they sound quite similar to Agalloch at times (the guitar tone at the end of 'grasp the apparition' and throughout much of 'burden of growth' sounds eerily reminiscent of Ashes against the Grain) but they also prove their sense of versatility here - especially in the vocal department. 'Pavor Nocturnus' has some insanely good vocals reminiscent of Weakling that have to be heard to be believed. Other songs like the epic 'Climb' do feel more inspired by Agalloch with a slow guitar build-up and chant-like vocals, but there are more than enough ideas here to keep them from being just a copycat band. One hell of a sophomore effort

Metal Church XI
I cannot believe how good this is. Vocalist Mike Howe has returned after a 23 year absence so that must be part of it, but wow this really surprised me in the best way possible. The vox rule, the bass is audible, and somehow the 7 minute tracks are quite possibly the best songs on here. Quite simply, one of the best modern thrash albums I've had the pleasure of listening to

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.

Regina Spektor proves how talented she is as a singer/songwriter with one of the most impressive pop releases of 2012. "What We Saw From The Cheap Seats" is creative and at times beautiful, but always fun and quirky. Very well executed pop album with exceptional vocals and an undeniable charm.

nearly a decade is a long time to wait for new music for any band, but The Starting Line bounce back right where they left off with 'Anyways', the first single from the band in 9 years. The guitars are punchy, the lyrics are well above average, and dammit, it's nice to hear Kenny Vasoli sing in TSL again. Now we just have to wait for the other 2 tracks to drop...

This rating is for the 2016 reissue of Pedestals, with the 6 songs from the EP being remastered, and 4 unreleased tracks.

A frustrating album in the sense that there are some great moments, but the overall experience is brought down by some equally mediocre ones. That being said, 'TowardMountains' is more than enough reason to give this album a shot. Featuring the drummer from Blood Incantation, the song gets a really cool, brooding drum intro and contains vocals that seamlessly trade off between death metal growls and black metal shrieks. Despite some pitfalls, they're a band with strong potential.
