2500 ratings, 7 years. Fuck that shit.

I wiped it all. I was tired of seeing my ratings, and I don't remember a lot bunch of the albums that I rated. Now all I need is some recommendations on what to listen to to bolster my ratings, so please throw something out that might be cool. Or don't. List is my albums of the year, but I deleted my ratings, so I probably am forgetting a couple in this moment.
1Hop Along
Bark Your Head Off, Dog

Hop Along has always been a band that I appreciated, but could never really digest properly. It may have had something to do with the dryness of Frances' voice, but when I heard the live version of "Sister Cities" I fell in love with it. And this lead me to check out their new single, "How Simple", god damn do I love that song. Every single math exam I took from the beginning of this year all the way up to the final a few weeks ago, this song would just play on repeat in my head, not sure why. Took me a couple months to actually listen to the Bark Your Head Off, Dog but god, there is not a single bad track on it
2Spanish Love Songs

I do a song swap with my Ohio friend every so often to round out our tastes with new types of bands we otherwise would not have listened to. I would not have listened to this band without her, yet it is such a band straight up my alley, as they are so similar to The Menzingers. This is another album where there really isn't much in the way of filler for me, as every song hits hard for me.
3Brian Fallon

I just really, really like Brian Fallon guys.
And Etta James is one of the best songs he has ever written.

I never really listened to this band too deeply before, I've heard an album or two maybe once in my life. I think I might be missing out on it, cause this album is pretty damn good. The hype train did not fail me this time.
5The Sidekicks
Happiness Hours

I used to love this band so much, they were integral in shaping my tastes as a teenager. Their first album was always my favorite, and then with each subsequent album they released I started to actively dislike their music, culminating with Runners in the Nerved World, which sucked. I listened to Happiness Hours on a whim just so I could get another 2.5 into my ratings. And to my surprise this album was by far their most cohesive and well put together album they've ever released; it made me so happy to see this band really put out something that seemed fully realized. The title track is one of my favorites of the entire year, and will forever be on my roadtrip playlist.
Joy as an Act of Resistance

This shit's fun.
7Denzel Curry

Finish 'em Zel.
Devouring Radiant Light

What a comeback, I listened to this band back in high school a bit and they eventually completely left my radar until I heard the EP with their new singer, Adam Clemens. It was pretty good. I began listening to the band again when I befriended Adam's gf, and god damn does this album slay from front to back. I don't really listen to metal often anymore, but this is without a doubt the best metal release I heard this year.
9Death Grips
Year of the Snitch

This is probably the most accessible Death Grups album out there, but it's still pretty damn great. One of their best even.
10Color TV
Color T.V.

Local band that absolutely rules, and their debut is no different.
11Rata Negra
Justicia Cosmica

I don't know much about this band, but I do know that I listened to them because it was on someone's list... I think PapaUniverse's. This album captures the energy of a live show in a dive bar so perfectly.
12Flatbush Zombies
Vacation in Hell

Vacation in Hell brings Flatbush's style back to the days of BetteroffDead, but with a more pop edge to it. Sometimes it works really well (HELL-O) and then sometimes it kinda sucks (Vacation in Hell, Big Shrimp). Even with the duds, there is enough content in this album to be a fun spin.
13Chain Cult

Still need to listen to "Isolated" but their Demo is fantastic.
14Nine Inch Nails
Bad Witch

The most Bowie that NIN has ever been. It's pretty great.
15Haru Nemuri
Haru to Shura

This is kinda weird, but good weird. I dig it.

Another local band that has an undying love for Robocop. It may be kinda dumb, but it's such good driving music.
