Things I regretted checking 333. I was too late in blooming these opinions to vote in that AOTM thread so I started *thinking*
2240 Watt Sun
Perfect Light

open mic night stuff, hard 1.0
Extreme Witchcraft

more like moderate wicca
Archive Material

videos put me off this one, sounds exactly like yr fave band or whatever
Land of Green and Gold

neoprog go to hell
Paint the Sky

metallic neoprog go to hell
Dissolution Wave

stuff you'd see in the indie charts 30 years ago and the video would just be a static picture of someone wearing dungarees in the studio, no rating cos i'm a shoegaze hater who can't recognise quality, this might be good to correctly calibrated ears but I Don't Wanna
The Gods We Can Touch

nicely done pop music I don't like lol
15 Melvins
Lord of the Flies

buzzo overindulging his ozzie voice at this point; basically an ep by vic reeves club singer. melvins are one of the best rock bands ever but this aint why lol, two point whatever
14Mother Morgana

fun old-school psyche. vocals misengineered to the point that it reminds me of using a TASCAM six channel mixer wrong at college. no rating cos I bounced off the title track

don't care for ambient but it's really interestingly assembled, uncommon philosophy obviously evident etc, "no rating"
12Yard Act
The Overload

oldschool post-punk's one of my things so I found myself mostly agreeing with The Quietus's take down of this album. antiquated in a way that doesn't harken back to stuff I like, just misquotes it. not awful though 2.5

feel like a dumbass for not getting this one, will try and return, no rating meanwhile
10Gilmore Trail

nice solemn post-rock stuff that reaches metallic pitch now and then. i have manifold problems with this type of music, chief amogus the way that it's mechanically pretty but totally risk-free. i'm not fooled by hans zimmer stuff so impossibly clean guitar picks don't work on me either. 2.999
9Druid Lord
Relics of the Dead

fun old school death metal in the slooow vein. i dont specialize in this stuff but riffs may riff nonetheless 3.0

four sludgy/grindy/noisy albums above this because they helped me realise this album could be half as long and still retain all its ideas. hyped about microsludge to the point that this totally solid album got kinda outmoded instantaneously, 3.0
7 Shapeshifter
Dark Ritual

a noisy kicking. good weirdo song structures hidden in here. 3.5
6Deaf Club (USA-CA)
Productive Disruption

a noisy kicking. good weirdo song structures hidden in here. 3.5 giggle

becoming a "the first five tracks and the closer are the whole album" truther but I started enjoying this. I don't get the drone label at this point, it doesnt sound much like Vomitself lol sometimes I'll just allow twinkly drug music to meet me 3.5
4Bore (USA-CT)

Bite sized sludge. you can't just be a four-letter stomping sludge band with the letters of your name ending in "RE" without doing an amazing EP, this is getting there. 3.5
Vista of Deviant Anatomies

good forward thinkin' goth+. then I checked the personnel and Toby Driver's name appeared, godlike. bumpable to 4
2Don Bolo

smart, biting, at-times riffing avant stuff with a thousand and one influences. Not showing off or overly skronking, just assembling songs no-one else would think of. 4

Really creative noisy hardcore with an interesting songwriting approach. top-tier things, bumpable to 4.5 or higher imo
