Cds I Own

My ever-expanding CD list
1American Football
American Football

The only relaxing album I own at the moment-- love it to death.

2Balance and Composure

Grew on me a lot, so I had to pick it up.
|Favorite tracks: Echo, Patience|
Rating: 4.1
3Between the Buried and Me

My second favorite album of all time, so it was mandatory to grab it when I
saw it at FYE. As much as the band is called overrated, they still opened my
eyes to better music.
|Favorite tracks: Ants of the Sky, White Walls|

4Between the Buried and Me

After listening to Colors, I looked them up on Sputnik, and found
Colors_Live and was blown away by the rating, so I checked it out. Don't
regret it in the slightest; spot-on live performance.
|Favorite tracks: [see Colors]|
Rating: 4.5
5Between the Buried and Me
The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues

Originally downloaded this, but picked it up along with Colors at FYE. My
favorite thing about it is actually the case; really slick.
|Favorite tracks: Augment of Rebirth, Lunar Wilderness|

6Between the Buried and Me
The Parallax II: Future Sequence

While I don't really listen to Between the Buried and Me too often anymore,
(music taste has changed and/or progressed) I still picked up this album.
Mainly, because I wanted to support the band, and I wanted to complete
the story of "Parallax".
|Favorite tracks: Lay Your Ghosts to Rest, The Black Box|

7Brand New

Got the Brand New discography for Christmas-- I was rather happy. I
always enjoyed the last 4 tracks of this album a lot. It seemed like that was
Brand New at their emotional peak; like a breaking point.
|Favorite tracks: You Stole, In a Jar|

8Brand New
Deja Entendu

This album, along with the next two, were part of the discography gift. I
always thought Deja Entendu to be a beautiful and clever album, in the
sense that Brand New just took more common, mature elements, and
nearly-mastered them; greatly distancing themselves from their previous

9Brand New
The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me

This album cemented Brand New as my favorite band, and I'm not going to
droll on about how it changed my life and all that shit, cause while it did in
fact do so, it's already been said by nearly 90% of Sputnik, it seems.
Favorite album of all time, however. I'll say that much.
|Favorite tracks: Millstone [favorite song of all time, as well], untitled|

10Brand New
Your Favorite Weapon (Deluxe Edition)

My least favorite album by them, but I still manage to love it. Just a fun,
catchy, angsty pop-punk album that doesn't really grow old. I don't bother
with the extra demos tacked on at the end though, they were nice for a
one-time listen, but not much more than that.
|Favorite tracks: The No Seatbelt Song, Seventy Times 7|

Koi No Yokan

Picked this up randomly along with the next album. I had some extra money
in my pocket at Wal-Mart, and figured I'd grab em. The album's okay. I
might get berated for liking an album like Your Favorite Weapon over this,
but it honestly didn't do much for me. Good workout music though.
|Favorite tracks: Poltergeist, Rosemary|
Rating: 3.5
12The Gaslight Anthem

This is the other album I picked up at Wal-Mart, and goddamn, do I not
regret that. Really great album. Before listening to it, I never knew that
music as formulaic and predictable as this could be so damned good. The Gaslight
Anthem use a tried-and-true method that seemingly never goes out of style
and I love that about them.
|Favorite tracks: Handwritten, National Anthem|

13Linkin Park
A Thousand Suns

This was the first CD I ever bought, and it's kinda obvious. Not as bad as
everyone makes it out to be, but still not very good. I actually find it to be
Linkin Park's most mature and tolerable album, however.
|Favorite tracks: Burning in the Skies, Journada Del Muerto [this song pisses
me off though, cause the title is in Spanish, yet the lyrics are in Japanese.
Makes no sense.]|
Rating: 2.7

I bought this on instinct way back, since it was on sale on Amazon. It's
almost an essential for CD collections, though not really cause it's highly
overrated. Still pretty catchy and energetic, so it gets a spin every now and
then. (Note: "every now and then" means maybe twice a year)
|Favorite tracks: Drain You, Lounge Act|

15 The Wonder Years
Suburbia: I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing

This was honestly my album of the year back in '11 (along with Swarms, not
counting The Dear Hunter, cause 36 songs is a little unfair to compare to
other bands). I still love it, and play it constantly. Being one of my favorite
bands, The Wonder Years always manage to put a smile on my face, no
matter what the situation; "It's not about forcing happiness, it's about not
letting sadness win."
|Favorite tracks: Local Man Ruins Everything, Hoodie Weather|
