American Football American Football
It's that time of year again to listen to this perfect album, no album has ever made me feel the way this album has. I still have not found a band that can duplicate American Football's emotion displayed in their music. This IS my favorite album hands down.

Misery Signals Controller
God this is what every metalcore band should model their sound after. This album is so unpredictable at times which is awesome. 'Coma' is the best track imo but every song on this album holds their weight.

Freddie Gibbs and Madlib Pinata
Honestly I don't see how any rapper in the game could top this album in 2014. I mean you have one of the best producers ever and Freddie gibbs was on point on almost every song. This reminds me of the madvillian album.
Funeral Advantage Body is Dead
There's one word that comes to mind when describing this album: 'Lifeless'. How can something sound so good and yet be lifeless at the same time? It amazes me how this album is able to pull something like this off. The arpeggiated guitar playing throughout this album are reminiscent of acts like American Football mixed with a dreamy atmosphere of bands like Wild Nothing. The keys provide a backdrop for the songs which give it such a unique and almost daunting atmosphere. The vocals are also on point. I love how he can be subdued at some points but then on some tracks he increases his range to provide sweet pop vocal melodies. Favorite track is probably the bass-driven "You Sat Alone" which has a great groove throughout the song and an awesome cascading guitar melody in the pre-chorus. My gripes with this album are minimal. The drumming is kind of boring and the ending of "Body Is Dead" is such a huge letdown. The song drops out and builds up to what you think is going to be a brilliant crescendo of some sort and the guitar line for this "crescendo" is such a boring let down. They could have done something so amazing with that ending but instead chose to put some boring guitar part that plays on for way too long. Other than that, this album is amazing and could very well be my AOTY.

The drummer in this band is my favorite drummer in the scene right now. He absolutely kills it on this record and anyone who plays drums has to listen to this album. All-around fantastic album.
It Prevails Stroma
After multiple listens, I have to say that this is It Prevails's strongest release. It's even better than their new one 'Perdition'. Every song on this LP is emotionally gripping and passionate. The guitar parts are tremendous and filled with melody. The vocals are amazing, both harsh and clean. I gained so much respect for their lead singer after I found out he wrote all the guitar parts, the structures of the songs, and of course his amazing singing parts. It Prevails is in my opinion, the best Melodic Hardcore band in the sub genre. They're doing it better than Counterparts and should be getting more recognition for it.

Neck Deep Life's Not Out To Get You
The more and more I listen to this LP from Neck Deep, the more that one word comes to mind: FUN. This album is just loaded with nothing but a good time. The riffs are fun, the lyrics are fun (at most times), the vocals are fun. This is everything that I've been searching for in a pop-punk release. Hats off to this band for crafting a really excellent album and shattering their 'run of the mill' shit pop punk that a ton of bands are trying out nowadays. Other than a few weak tracks (December, Citizens of Earth, Serpents) this album is consistent as hell and is one of my favorite pop punk LP's I've ever heard.

Diggin this band HARD. Love how much the vocals sound like Anthony Green and the fact that he plays complex drum parts while belting out catchy as hell hooks is very impressive. This band wreaks talent and they are going to be a huge success in the near future. Definitely would have been one of my favorite releases of 2014.
Handguns Angst
This album really is a guilty pleasure. People are expecting way too much from this band. The album is called "Angst" for christ's sake. Nevertheless, these guys wanted to create a catchy album that brings listeners back to their younger days. Ala sounds of garage doors opening and closing at the beginning and end of the album, bike riding, love, parental relationships. All the things you would expect from a teenager's life.

One of my favorite releases of 2015 thus far. Soaring choruses, great melodic guitar lines, and uplifting lyrical content..this LP has it all. I guess my only gripe is that the harsh vocals are kind of hard to make out but other than that this album is a great post-hardcore/melodic hardcore release. Going to check previous discography out now because of this!

Alkaline Trio My Shame Is True
Matt's guitar playing is definitely a lot better on this record. 'She Lied to the FBI' might be my new favorite Alkaline Trio song. This album isn't really doin much for me though. Hopefully it'll grow on me, but it just sounds SO similar to the songs off their last two albums.
Bane Give Blood
Lyrically, this album is awesome with Themes of being on tour, staying strong, and even living a full life. However, the vocalist doesn't really seem to flow his vocals all too well rhythmically. They probably recorded his vocals last or something.
Banner Pilot Souvenir
Hold Fast is such a jam!!!! Pretty enjoyable release from Banner Pilot but there's some lackluster tracks like Colifax.. Collapser will always be their opus.

I actually found this album to be quite enjoyable. Especially here in the Florida summer. With pounding drum beats, melodic guitar riffs, and anthematic choruses, this LP really reminded me of something from Cloud Nothings or a Japandroids record. There are a few drawbacks though. 1. The production on the vocals is kind of off-putting but I get that they were trying to go for a Lo-Fi/Garage Rock type sound..the vocals just didn't compare to how they sounded on their most recent EP. 2. The tracks on this album can be quite repetitive. Not that they all sound the same, but each song will pound it's hook into your head, or maybe a guitar riff into your head, or maybe a drum pattern..catch my drift. 3.Theres some throwaway tracks in my opinion (I.e., 'Gimme Gimme' and even the title track was kind of a letdown). All in all, this albums not terrible, but it's not amazing either. Definitely worth checking out though if you're looking for a good summer indie rock record.

If this was a Brand New record it would be getting 4.5-5's but because it's Prawn, it'll get 3.5-4 ratings! All in all, I enjoy the majority of the songs on here. The slow-tempo songs kinda bring it down but songs like "First as Tragedy....." And "Dialectic Of.." Are what make me come back for more!

Coming from the biggest mike kinsella/owen/American football fan; I don't think this record is that great. It's got some great songs but in my opinion it's New Leaves part II. With only a couple good songs and the rest just sounding too folky for me.

Counterparts Tragedy Will Find Us
Huge letdown of an album. The music's just as good as the album art. Counterparts goes for more of a straight-forward hardcore sound that totally disrupts what they have been doing on previous releases. On previous releases, the melodies stood out more and actually added a sense of passion to their songs. On certain tracks on this album, it just seems like they add a melodic part at one point of the song that just seems out of place. Best song on the album is Solace and that's because it sounds like it could be off their opus 'The Difference Between Hell and Home'. I think one can gain an understanding of the direction of this album by listening to the god awful track 'Choke'. Seems like Counterparts tried to release the angry 13 year old that was trapped inside of them by displaying it on this track. Not saying the other tracks on this album are as bad as this track lyrically. As a matter of fact, the lyrics on this album are probably its strong point. But for me, I like my hardcore to have copious amounts of melody and not so much brutality (see band 'It Prevails').
