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

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.

My favorite Rush so far.
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.
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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.
A Farewell to Kings

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
