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.

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.

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.

Barely competent revivalist rock that does offer some treats and surprises across its thirteen tracks, but not quite enough to bother spinning it.

Korn Issues
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.

Despite some truly impressive in-your-face production, this is Korn at their most juvenile and embarrassing. Like other Korn albums, it can competently channel superior bands (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle) but offers nothing of worth beyond that.

Korn Follow the Leader
Massive Attack Heligoland
Heligoland is a record that feels rushed and directionless, a fairly random series of cheap-sounding noises thrown at a canvas. Not a lot of it sticks.
Mastodon The Hunter
I must admit I never managed to get through the whole thing, but the impression it gave me was so weak I don't think I'll ever bother. A massive disappointment following the epic Crack The Skye.

Four lifeless, uninspired songs that bare absolutely no resemblance to the Pixies or even each other. An

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.
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.
