Devin Townsend Ocean Machine: Biomech
A landmark achievement in the field of progressive metal, Devin Townsend shows the previously unseen other side of his psyche and offers 13 of the most astounding pieces of music ever written. From the hook-laden, anthemic "Life", the ambient glory of "Sister", to the haunting choirs that close out "Voices In The Fan", the final four songs that define Devin's career and everything in between, this is a record that everyone must buy and could only have been written by a true genius.
Dinosaur Jr. You're Living All Over Me
This album is the balls. It's the balls because it has everything. Ripping guitar solos, masterful lo-fi production, multi-layered slabs of fuzz and feedback, one of the most challenging closers ever, and J Mascis the grody hermit. Like I said, it's the balls.

I'll never be able to explain why i like this album so much, or why it picks me up so high off the ground when I'm down. All I know is that I can't live without it and that it's basically perfect. A few months back, I was feeling really disillusioned with my life, and this album made me give a shit about music again, the one thing that defined my life. Songs like "Time Turned Fragile" and "Attractive Today" contain expertly written melodies and nostalgic qualities that only a band that had been through every up and down of life could deliver. For these reasons I can't give it any less than a 5.

Charles Mingus The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady
Charles Mingus Mingus Ah Um
This is absolutely stunning stuff. Charles Mingus assembles an all-star band (just listen to those drum and
sax solos) and writes accessible, technical and beautiful jazz that anyone can enjoy. This is really close to
being a 5 and it probably eventually will be for me.

1st listen was a very reluctant 3.5. 2nd listen was a reluctant 4. 3rd listen was a very strong 4. I can't wait for what spin #4 will bring.

Regardless of your personal ideals, this is a fantastic mixtape. "No Regrets" in particular is a fantastic cut with a truly moving chorus, and the production is stellar. 4 YoYo points out of 5.

I'd rate this higher if not for the fact that everything after Moth In The Incubator is complete and utter anus.
The Flaming Lips Embryonic
The Police Zenyatta Mondatta
The Smashing Pumpkins Machina - The Machines of God
I've never entirely understood what people off of this one, except maybe its length and its experimentation. This is a very solid record that would be a 3 without the triumphant return of Jimmy Chamberlin.

The track lengths can be a bit of an issue, but overall "Black Horse Plague" is a volatile melting pot of musical ideas and a massive improvement over last year's "Alpha". Captain has really outdone himself.
