This Was Always Meant To Fall Apart

3.5 - mathcore aping botch/norma jean with cleans that is just fine
14Little Simz
Sometimes I Might Be Introvert

4 - great things await for little simz as long as she holds back on the blowing smoke up her own ass (less triumphant trumpets and grand statement blaring this is my grand statement music)
15Talk Talk

The Mother of Virtues

4 - fecundity is the mother of virtues (holes are alluring)

3.5 - fun plastic starburst music that is emotionally hollow but brilliantly produced

4 - Unsane's most consistent and also least adventurous LP, making it one of their best LPs with only a couple of really great tracks. the closer is a bit interesting tho (bit of a divergence into industrial)
King of the Jews

3.5 - Pretty unremarkable for Oxbow, closest thing they have to a dud in their discography

31Sleepytime Gorilla Museum

4.5 - genuinely fantastic band that is best when they arent actually doing metal at all

The Inalienable Dreamless

3 - overrated grind thats not bad but i dont get the hype

Colors II

2 - band is wank and its not even funny
44Dance Gavin Dance

3 - uhh cringe lyrics, good mess screaming, same old guitarwork theyve been doing last 3-4 albums (ive lost track of this bands history)

3 - band only got better with time, check out either of their other 2 lps for some great off-kilter instrumental math rock

3.5 - looking forward to the next thing from these guys
47Some Girls
Heaven's Pregnant Teens

3 - this is pretty so-so except for the final track 'deathface' which eschews the lazy spazzcore for an 8 minute repetitive noisy burner with some great drumming

3.5 - some surprisingly fun death metal
49Living weapon

3 - forgettable but not bad mathcore
50The Chameleons
Strange Times

4 - your fav post punk band's fav band

2 - slightly more tolerable than usual due to josh travis' involvement
52The Fall
Live At The Witch Trials

4 - pretty unremarkable but solid album for the fall
