Coil The Ape of Naples
This album made a huge impact on my life not too long ago, and as of today it still remains one of
my dearest albums. A close family member of mine died a long while back, and ever since this album
has helped me come to terms with the passing. The Ape of Naples is easily one of the
greatest sounding records I've ever heard, and sadly the last album with the band entirely. This
album is creepily haunting, beautiful, euphoric, sentimental...pretty much any positive descriptor
you can garnish, this album is simply amazing. Lyrically, the album revolves around death,
forgiveness, suicide, tragedy, heartbreak, and bitter travesties of love. Although this album is
incredibly depressing and brooding, quite thought-provoking and spooky. 'Going Up' is easily one
of the most devastatingly emotional tracks I've ever heard.

In a nutshell, this album fails to escape the most basic type of flaw; there's not a single thing bad with this album. Compared to the man's other works, his voice on this one doesn't sound like a robot, which is truly captivating. He must have been sent to vocal training or something, because I was pleasantly surprised when I heard his voice. With him sounding soulful, energized, passionate, and touching, this is by far his best effort. Not to mention, the songs delivered here are easy-on-the-ear, warm, catchy, reflecting, and in my honest opinion, career-defining. Songs like 'Fallen Down', 'Horizon', 'Drive', and 'Cocoon' represent this in a positive way, without a doubt. You won't ever hear me handing compliments out like this, because this is an album I will cherish for a lifetime.

Anyone that is a Grunge fanatic (or at the the very least a fan of Eddie Vedder, Chris
Cornell, and even Stone Gossard) should definitely find interest in this record, because it
is an absolute juggernaut to say the least. Musically, this album is fantastic and they seem
to use their musicianship to the best of their abilities; hell, 5 to 7 minute tracks on this
record aren't uncommon. It's a shame they never managed to release another album, because
I'm sure it would have been phenomenal.

To this date, this remains one of the most catchiest albums I've come across. Every track has hooks all over the place (twinkly-esque guitars, simple yet effective drumming, and fun lyrics). For Weezer's side, I think this is their most honorable album they've recorded. There's not a single bad song on this album, they are all positive and warm.

Assemblage 23 Failure
Failure ultimately manages to successfully scope into Assemblage 23's catalogue
with more a "positive" and "upbeat" style of sound. How the listener approaches the album
will be the deciding factor, in all reality, because the songs themselves are entirely
different from the rest of his albums; they are considerably more spontaneous and
rambunctious. But that somewhat disjointed assumption doesn't necessarily entitle the album
is this way; it could be completely different from listener to listener. Fact is, though,
this is a very great album with a great deal of playback and skillfully moves between weak
spots and avoids them. This is a very mysterious and wonderful album loaded with some
stellar tracks, naming ones such as 'I Am The Rain', 'Disappoint', and 'Silence'. Highly
recommended album for just about anyone or any lone star looking into getting into his music
(Defiance is close to this as well).

A nice blend of brutality and mellowness, this album simply rules. The song titles might be
a bit ridiculous, but that's German for ya, right? Definitely would recommend this album
Einsturzende Neubauten Haus Der Lüge
As creepy yet humerous as the album cover may be, it's not quite what the music is itself. EN isn't an accessible band, but if there's one album that's at least slightly more friendly to open guests, this is it. There's more use of synths and melody on this one, as opposed to grinding percussion and metallic metal-on-metal that was their earlier material. I would say this is by far their most accessible release.

There's something odd about this album, it's well, good nu-metal; who know it could actually be good for once? That's what LD50 contains, nu-metal with a bent towards the progressive style. This album never fails to tone down, as it's musically and lyrically intense through most of it. Chad's vocals were at his apex during this time, and this album shows it without a doubt, as his grunty, growly voice seemingly reaches no-holds-barred. Songs like the noisy 'Dig', and the emotionally devestating 'Death Blooms' and even the musical juggernaut 'Know Forever' are by far Mudvayne's most stellar. This is without a doubt one of the greatest albums to ever surface the earth.

An expansive psychedelic rock tinged/hard rock album that is 100% Queens of the Stone Age; rapid guitar riffs, slightly droning/lazy yet completely understood vocals, enjoyable choruses, and tons of hilarious lyrics. Such a rocking album.

Swans Filth
Filth is a quintessential album for the Swan world, as it represents some of their most destructive musicianship. With rhythms sounding like an industrial factory out back, melodies submerged in a gory atmosphere, and vocals howled or growled, this is an absolute chaotic beast of a record. I would strongly recommend this to anyone that likes heavy albums, because this is it.

Even though this was hilariously cheesy, and the lyrical delivery was quite terrible (it's obvious the vocalist isn't good in the lyric department), the musicianship was actually quite good. The drums were the major standout, they sounded really crisp and like a boulder with each hit, and not to mention, the guitar riffs were quite awesome as well. Crossfade isn't a band that you could all "influential" or "innovative" per say, but this album is fairly decent and contains some good tracks in their catalogue.

This is easily their most underrated/neglected album ever, and that's quite understandable, as this album's sound is purely electronic based. Despite the abrupt genre change, Pop is a reasonably decent album, but definitely not as good as Achtung Baby or War.

Bloodhound Gang Use Your Fingers
As much as I absolutely love this band, Bloodhound Gang's 1995 debut Use Your Fingers is nothing but corny garbage. There are probably 3 real songs here, much of which can get annoying and repetitive, and on top of that, MOST of the record is nothing but skits. This is easily their most non-musical album, displaying nothing worthwhile or interesting from a rather fun band. In my humble opinion, the only real good song here was 'We are the Knuckleheads', which had a semi-catchy chorus, but the rest of the album features nothing but random claps and snaps and Jimmy Pop's standard rapped lyrics.
