#1 for 2003 and a 4.5 average on Sputnik. It's always great to see something get what it
deserves. When I first heard this album when I was 15, they pretty much became my favorite
band and still are to this day. Quite simply, this is 12 tracks containing everything I love
about music. Not just a perfect ska or punk album, but a perfect album in general. An
absolute must-have.

Underrated. "Totally Stupid" and "The End of Our Lives" are two of the best songs ever made. This album doesn't have the consistency of I Get Wet at all, but there are flashes of pure brilliance scattered throughout.
Arcade Fire Neon Bible
Bad Religion No Control
Balance and Composure Separation
Balance and Composure The Things We Think We're Missing
I'm really surprised a lot of people were disappointed by this record. While I don't think it's as lyrically memorable/powerful as Separation was, I still think this is their best release. The production makes this an especially great listen every time. The opening of "Parachutes"/"Lost Your Name"/"Back of Your Head" is huge, there's two great singles in "Reflection" and "Tiny Raindrop", and the last track "Enemy" is probably my favorite song this band has ever made.

Rise Against The Sufferer and the Witness
Yes, this is a punk album that debuted at #10 on the Billboard charts in 2006. Don't let it fool you. Despite being accessible enough for play on rock radio (although at times it's hard to believe), even the most underground fans of the genre can't deny that this is a solid album. This alongside No Trigger's Canyoneer from the same year furthered my interest in melodic punk in high school. "The Approaching Curve" is the only song I'd skip here, but every other track sounds like it could be a single. The production's great, and with all things considered.. nothing ever travels too far into the 'generic' realm of punk. This is Rise Against at their best.

They took 6 deep cuts from the early days of the band's existence, re-did them for a proper
release, and the results are awesome. Despite being old, all the songs are revived in a way
that they sound new and on par with the quality of Talon of the Hawk.

DragonForce Inhuman Rampage
Ridiculous lyrics and long/repetitive song structure- these things are nothing new for DragonForce. However, Inhuman Rampage is faster, more varied instrumentally, more exciting, and overall their best album. The addition of the aggressive-style back-up vocals makes a difference as well, and even the ballad is actually bearable this time around. I'm not sure what people are expecting listening to this. It's not meant to change your life, break boundaries, or be relatable.. it's supposed to be fast, over the top, and sound like the soundtrack to fighting a war against demons, riding through the sky on a dragon, and shooting flames and lightning out of a sword.. and it succeeds.

Right from the opener "Sasha", this EP just sounds like stage dives and finger point singalongs. To no surprise, lyrics about heartache, friendship, being alone, etc. but delivered well vocally and with a good amount of energy. Overall, a great pop-punk debut.

The Sounds Something to Die For
I love The Sounds. Each album they've released has provided with a soundtrack to good weather, parties, and car sing-a-longs. They make pop music with attitude, you have to take in the fun of it all and not take it too seriously. It's about hooks and delivery over lyrics. While The Sounds still haven't released an album I dislike, they have released the first grouping of tracks I haven't loved. I didn't enjoy this at first, but after multiple listens, the first half winds up being classic Sounds fun. A few tracks here sound like they could've come straight off their last (and underrated) album, Crossing the Rubicon. The last group of tracks take on a different direction and while it's underwhelming and forgettable at times, I can't help but get into it.. even a little bit.
The Sounds Weekend
I was hoping this would actually be better than Something To Die For and thankfully, it is.
The first 8 tracks are all at least pretty good for post-2009 Sounds. Stay away from
the last 3 songs on the album though.

Andrew Jackson Jihad Christmas Island
I hate to say it, but the eccentricities that made their previous albums memorable feel
really phoned in here. A lot of the lyrics seem to be weird just to be weird. There's still
good tracks, but none of them take it to the next level. Definitely disappointing.
Grimes Visions
If the entire album was as great (and insanely catchy) as "Genesis" and "Oblivion", this would really be something. Unfortunately, Visions has a couple obvious highlight tracks throughout and the rest is pretty forgettable.
