A Mostly 3.5 October
1Dinosaur Jr.

[Indie rock/noise rock]

Enjoyable with some wonderful highlights, but most of it is only "good."

Favorite: "What If I Knew"
Least Favorite: "Been There All the Time"

Free Your Mind...And Your Ass Will Follow


It's okay, but just listen to Maggot Brain an then try to tell me they're even close in quality...

Favorite: "Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow"
Least Favorite: "Friday Night, August 14th"


[Pop rock/indie pop]

Much better than most people are saying, but also not too huge of a standout.

Favorite: "Colors"
Least Favorite: "Dreams"

4The Knife
Deep Cuts


While it has its moments, it's a straight up pop album most of the time. Clearly this was before The Knife was ready to truly get weird. It's really listenable pop though.

Favorite: "You Take My Breath Away"
Least Favorite: "Listen Now"

5Dead Can Dance
Spleen and Ideal

[Neoclassical darkwave/post punk]

This is not nearly as good as Within the Realm, but the highlights are pretty much on the same level. I feel like the guy vocal stands out here more, which is like the opposite of Within the Realm.

Favorite: "The Cardinal Sin"
Least Favorite: "Ascension"

6Lana Del Rey

[Indie pop/dream pop]

I do this "Album of the Month" thingy in this group and this was that album. Meh.

Favorite: "Shades of Cool"
Least Favorite: "Money Power Glory"

7The Pop Group

[Post punk/funk]

Upon first listen I was amazing, upon 2nd, 3rd, and 4th listen I was frustrated with how plain the songs ended up sounding. It's like an anti-grower. 2 tracks stayed amazing though.

Favorite: "Thief of Fire"
Least Favorite: "Blood Money"

8The Pop Group
For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?

[Post punk/funk]

This one was more focused and upbeat, but still kind of plain...

Favorite: "Forces of Oppression"
Least Favorite: "Communicate"

9Fever Ray

[Electronic pop/whatever else Karin feels like being]

This was a pleasant surprise. Sure the s/t is better, but barely. I'm impressed, but I expected as much from Fever Ray.

Favorite: "IDK About You
Least Favorite: "Falling"
