Trying out bands we don't like, part 5

Part 5 of 7, nearly there
1Against Me!
Reinventing Axl Rose

DK: 4, I was under the mistaken impression that this was pop-punk. It was not, and it was good.
Me: 3.5, Didn't end up enjoying it as much as Rancid, but then again that was something that snuck up on me this project. Still a very good album
2Rilo Kiley
The Execution of All Things

DK: 3, Was ok, but got dragged down a bit by the trope of the indie saccirine whisper singing.
Me: 3.5, I dug it, if this is their best though I probably won't go looking for more
3The Cardigans
Long Gone Before Daylight

DK: 2.5, I liked it better than their hits that I'd heard, but nothing jumped out at me.
Me: 3, Chill mellow music for the background
4Sixpence None the Richer
This Beautiful Mess

DK: 3, A bit eh, but I didn't hate it.
Me: 3.5, Never heard them apparently other than a single hit, very good stuff
Nothing is Sound

DK: 3, What Nazz said vvvv
Me: 3, I expected much worse, instead I got slightly above mediocrity
When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes

DK: 2, I tried to be objective, but I hate pop-punk. Whiny vocals and samey riffs.
Me: 3, Not a YC fan but it was okay
The Joshua Tree

DK: 4, Classic, and thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
Me: 3.5, Still not really a U2 fan but the music was very solid
8Dashboard Confessional
The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most

DK: 2.5, Like it better than Yellowcard, but not my cup of tea.
Me: 3.5, Will resvisit so I can listen to the lyrics better, but I really liked what I heard on the first playthrough
Comfort Eagle

DK: 3.5, Well written songs, and lots of variety.
Me: 4, Fun, entertaining, not overly "haha look at me" zany

DK: 2.5, Very generic sound. Wasn't awful, but just sounded like boilerplate hard rock.
Me: 2, I enjoyed a couple of the early songs but I started to really hate it
Leave a Whisper

DK: 2, Nickelback with a faux-edge.
Me: 2.5, This album would be better if it ended with a gunshot

DK: 2, Why have an instrument gimmick if you can't discern it from any other nu-metal?
Me: 2.5, The addition of a brand new instrument doesn't make this any less butt-nu-metal
Vapor Transmission

DK: 4 ,Very cool 90's era industrial. Liked it a lot.
Me: 3.5, Catchy industrial rock, was fun to listen to but will probably never revisit
Fundamental Elements of Southtown

DK: 2, Douche music for people with HEKI and NOTW stickers on their lifted Silverados.
Me: 2, Thanks for the cringy Christian-nu-butt-metal
15The Prodigy
The Fat of the Land

DK: 3.5, Pretty much THE 90's electro album.
Me: 4, Fantastic album, every song is great
Fight or Flight

DK: 2.5, Was just background noise. Unimpressive.
Me: 2.5, It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but not as good as I'd hoped
17Thirty Seconds To Mars
A Beautiful Lie

DK: 3, Nothing awful, was alright.
Me: 3, The Kill is a jam, rest of the albm is pretty decent

DK: 3, You get a lot of music. The question is, do you want to hear it all?
Me: 3, I was feeling a 3.5 but then the last couple songs happened and I wanted to die
19Rascal Flatts

DK: 2, Bet Wal-Mart sold a lot of copies of this shit.
Me: 2, It was bad but not "please kill me" bad

DK: 2, "Bro, wouldn't it be cool to smoke a marijuana?!" - 311-4Lyfe-Fan2005
Me: 2.5, Not very good! Invokes images of jorts, tanktops with potleafs on them and visors.
