Everybody Do The Exam Jam

List is albums I jammed over the past couple weeks of studying and exam taking and is loosely ranked. Done with the semester now though so I'm looking forward to a nice break.
1Mr. Bungle
California


Holy crap this is good. I passed it up at the record store the other day because I hadn't checked it yet. I did the next day and immediately regretted my decision. Hopefully its there next time too.
2Rush
Signals


My favorite Rush so far.
3Plini
Handmade Cities


My favorite 2016 release.
4Skid Row
Slave to the Grind


This is the only Hair Metal album I would be willing to call a true musical masterpiece.
5Rush
Moving Pictures


More great stuff from a legendary band.
6Joe Satriani
Surfing With The Alien


An amazing guitarist who should be better remembered with works like this.
7Gorguts
Obscura


Really great death metal, but I'm not sure if I like it as much as it is acclaimed.
8Queen
Innuendo


This album closer is the best Queen song ever.
9Deafheaven
Roads to Judah


Not as good as Sunbather (pretty close), but much better than New Bermuda.
10Pierce the Veil
Misadventures


I don't care what anyone says. These guys are good.
11Michael Jackson
Dangerous


Album draws out a bit with some repetitive beats but the 1-2 punch of Give In To Me and Will You Be There late in the album is one of my favorite moments in pop music.
12The Mars Volta
De-Loused in the Comatorium


An album that gets better as it goes along.
13Frank Zappa
The Grand Wazoo


A really neat jazz fusion album from a guitarist I only heard about from a book.
14Coverdale and Page
Coverdale/Page


A neat little short term project that ended up producing a great album.
15Childish Gambino
"Awaken, My Love!"


Soulful influences make this a varied and worthwhile listen to even those who were not fans of his other work.
16Soundgarden
Superunknown


There are weak moments here for sure but classic songs are just as plentiful.
17The Who
Quadrophenia


Interesting story but a little bland compared to some of my favorite prog rock classics.
18Guns N' Roses
Appetite for Destruction


Slightly overrated as a rock classic but excellent nonetheless.
19Angus and Julia Stone
Down the Way


My friend rec'd me this and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
20Rush
A Farewell to Kings


This is weaker Rush, but with their music, that is no insult.
21Mayhem
Chimera


While past their prime by far, this was not a bad effort at all and turned into a great atmosphere for their updated sound.
22Yes
90125


I picked up Close to The Edge but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. This did well for now though.
23Ben Folds
Lonely Avenue


I'm making my way through this discography because there are surprises everywhere with this guy. My favorite is Rockin' the Suburbs but this is awesome too.
24Radical Face
The Family Tree: The Roots


More musically interesting than the leaves to me but not quite as good a story.
25Flood of Red
Leaving Everything Behind


Very much like Circa Survive here with this album, which my coach recommended to me.
26Heartless Bastards
Arrow


Another rec from a friend which I was surprised again by, but this one wasn't quite as astounding I suppose.
27The Police
Synchronicity


I was actually kind of disturbed by this album a bit. Musically it was good but I prefer Regatta de Blanc.
28Queen
The Game


I love Queen but this isn't quite their best work.
29AC/DC
Back In Black


I thought I hated AC/DC but after this album, I realized I just thought they were overrated.
30Queen
Hot Space


While this is not their best work (the synth elements could've been better for sure), it has Under Pressure which is one of my favorite songs lyrically and performance-wise of all time.
31Rush
Presto


At this point, Rush were running out of ideas I think, but this is still a good album.
32Sea Wolf
Old World Romance


This sounded to me like an inferior knock off of bombay bicycle club mixed with coldplay.
33Quiet Riot
Metal Health


While the singles off this album are incredible, the rest of it pretty much sucks.
