Mr. Bungle Disco Volante
An alternately hilarious and terrifying avant-garde record of plodding death metal, schizoid jazz, sensual funk and eerie ambience. Never has a record had a more mysterious, haunting personality. Requires many a listen to make sense of it all, but it'll stick with you for life.
Mr. Bungle California
Mr. Bungle's third and final album was their weakest, but nonetheless an absolute triumph. The weirdest and best pop album ever recorded.

Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon
I actually consider Dark Side Of The Moon a little flawed, and find a couple of tracks far less interesting than others... but the one-two punch of Time and The Great Gig In The Sky is enough to 5 this alone. A timeless, sweeping classic.

Stimming Alpe Lusia
I first heard Stimming nearly five years ago, when a song of his was given to me by a friend as part of a mixtape. The track
exhibited a fresh and meticulous approach to house music, suggesting Stimming possessed something special among the
hordes of bedroom DJs. However, there was something audibly missing from the track, as
though Stimming had not yet realised how to take the disparate elements of his music and add them up to something entire
and profound. While optimistic that I would one day hear Stimming deliver on his promise, a torrent of new music and other
experiences flooded into my life, and I quickly forgot all about him. Cue the release of his new album. Alpe Lusia is the
sound of Stimming fully, gloriously realising the potential I first heard from him half a decade ago. One of the best
electronic albums I've heard in some years.

Merriweather's busy, scrambled and erratic cousin - for better and for worse.
Animal Collective Honeycomb/Gotham
This single, particularly a-side Honeycomb, feels very much like business as usual for Animal Collective. You
could call Honeycomb an ecstatic three-minute summation of their last three albums; it has the rough 'n'
tumble execution of 'Feels', the soaring vocals of 'Merriweather Post Pavilion', and the melodic sweetness of
'Strawberry Jam'. Melancholic b-side Gotham isn't quite so familiar-sounding, featuring a heartbreaking vocal
from Avey Tare that sighs across lethargic guitar and unhurried drums. It isn't the blast of energy and colour
Honeycomb is, but may well be the superior track. All in all Honeycomb/Gotham is a fantastic, if slightly
inessential pre-'Centipede' single.

John Zorn Filmworks XIII: Invitation to a Suicide
This is a film score consisting of about three or four simple themes, varied upon and repeated throughout. What makes this score wonderful rather than monotonous is a) the sheer, aching beauty of these melodic motifs, and b) the ingenious ways Zorn is able to remould them in different hues. Highly recommended.

Slick Idiot Dicknity
Slick Idiot Sucksess
"Sucksess" is the 2009 album by electro-industrial act Slick Idiot, aka ex-KMFDM members En Esch and
Guenter Schulz. Although amateurly produced and a little incoherent stylistically, this album is far superior to
anything KMFDM has come up with since said members left in 1999. Tracks like Everyone's A Winner,
Daydreams, Silly and Wer Bist Du? are exotic and deliciously catchy post-industrial jams far more deserving of
the KMFDM name than Sascha's recent mall goth bullshit. I am yet to listen to their divisive debut, DickNity,
but this album fills me with hope and excitement. Well done fellas.

Perhaps Korn's least obnoxious release, Issues leans closer to alternative metal than nu-metal, a stylistic shift they should've made earlier and stuck with for longer. Despite being long-winded and flawed beyond belief, Issues does offer up a handful of clever riffs and explosive choruses, evident on tracks like Hey Daddy and Make Me Bad. As good as they ever got.

Die Antwoord Ten$ion
Possibly the most gimmicky, charmless, style-over-substance band I have ever heard... all surface and no meaning whatsoever.
James Blake Overgrown
Other than the first minute of the title track (a scorching banjo jam) and some gorgeously-mixed industrial samples, this is a totally forgettable, lifeless release. The chugging metal riffs of earlier KMFDM albums worked because they were catchy and tongue-in-cheek, here they just sound like those of any other cringeworthy metal band. Probably the worst KMFDM album of the post-Esch years.
Korn The Path of Totality
A cross-promotion can of energy drink. I'll admit this match made in hell carries some morbid fascination for me. The one
or two faint glimmers of guilty pleasure on here (e.g. the pre-chorus of 'Get Up') prevent me from rating this as a 1.0... as
much as this id-driven, fad-chasing mess might deserve it. This really does represent some nadir of Western culture. I only
wish I hated it more than I do.
Muse The 2nd Law
Muse's trashy mix of cheesy guitar riffs, space-themed lyrics and Freddie Mercury-style histrionics can at times be great fun to listen to. On The 2nd Law however the cheese and the drama is cranked to 11, totally at the cost of any enjoyment. This album is almost entirely forgettable, save for the couple of tracks (Survival, Unsustainable) where the band verges into unlistenable territory. The addition of wobble bass on tracks such as Madness, Follow Me and Unsustainable (funnily enough the three singles thus far) was a soulless and ineffective attempt to jump on the dubstep bandwagon, yielding results more tragic than anything else. Stay way clear of this, folks.

Crazy Frog Crazy Frog Presents Crazy Hits
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. The point where KMFDM truly lost all artistic integrity, and became a soulless franchise. At least on recent KMFDM albums, when they rehashed old ideas, they at least tried to pass it off as new material (see the opener of Kunst for example). This album is literally a bunch of older songs (most of them terrible) remixed by Sascha and thrown together on a CD. Why? Because legions of brainless fans will buy it anyway, because of the brand name attached to it. For which KMFDM collection is complete, without this utterly needless and ridiculous release? You better grab the vinyl and the t-shirt, too. We already have three greatest hits albums. We already have reissues, remasters, and remix albums aplenty. Please don't fork over money for this album. You'll only enable Sascha to continue making a mockery of the KMFDM name, which he's been doing since the early 2000s. Go listen to their classic material instead, or check out Slick Idiot. This release is positively cancerous.
