Deftones Gore3.5
"once upon a time, in the piece of shit land called Sacramento 4 stoned teenagers accidentally created Nu-Metal but then jumped from that ship once Limp Bizkit happened (even though Korn was a thing before that). They still made good music and they made another music that is good. Chiggy Biggy Mo-Iggy please love me!!!! 8/10"

A Lot Like Birds No Place4.5
"No Place" manages to dive deep with me, even on its sheer concept alone. As someone who struggles with connection, especially to a place called home do to my somewhat mobile childhood, A Lot Like Bird's third LP is rather relatable to me, as the entire album is about the struggles of home. It also helps that musically A Lot Like Birds does nothing but impress.
Dance Gavin Dance Acceptance Speech3.5
Acceptance Speech doesn't have the greatest production ever. Acceptance Speech doesn't have the greatest lyrics. But that is okay, as the Sacramento-based group's 5th full length is still a rather enjoyable record.

HORSE the band Desperate Living3.5
i honestly don't know how this album makes me feel, and in this case I'm actually considering it a good thing.
"Desperate Living" is, when all is said and done, a good album. However it's like listening to a muppet have a
temper tantrum while a mixture of metal and a SNES soundtrack play in the background.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Stadium Arcadium2.0
There are album that are bogged down with filler tracks, and then there's Stadium Arcadium; a double album that rwhile it has its fair share of really great tracks, is countered by the fact that the album has an exhausting amount rof songs that just come off as anywhere from pointless while still listenable, to straight up bad.

Truth time children! I'm not a big Post Metal fan. It's not that I dislike the genre, I admitingly have a difficult time sitting through long songs. However, Isis managed to make not only one of my favourite gems from the genre, but one of my favourite albums period.
Pig Destroyer Terrifyer4.0
Green Day American Idiot1.5
Green Day completely sell their souls with American Idiot, and lose any genuine angst they might have had in the past in the process. Every song on this album comes off as overly whiny (any single released off this record) or just forced altogether, especially the political messages Green Day attempted to cram into this mess of an album.

Deftones Around the Fur3.5
Around the Fur showcases a band who are starting to realize their true potential. While still rholding on to the nu-metal sound they helped create, Deftones add so much more to, distinguishing rthemselves from the other groups. Featuring improved songwriting and a glimpse at their eventual ratmospheric sound, Around the Fur is an early highlight of a band that's full of them.

Deftones Adrenaline3.5
Despite being a key album in the infamous "nu-metal" sub-genre that annoyed the ears of many in the late 90's to early 2000's, Deftones humble debut "Adrenaline" still demands to be heard. Featuring a raw and rather angry sound, in addition to Chino's fitting rap-like vocal style. However as it IS the bands first release, Adrenaline sounds rather underdeveloped at times. An overall solid beginning for a group that's going to end up being so much more.
