Meh. Nothing really exciting about these songs for me.
3Havukruunu
Uinuos Syömein Sota

Good atmosphere, but there was a ringing sound in some of it that actually hurt my ears. Nothing too memorable either.

The soothing sounds of budgiecore.

I definitely like it... but might have to listen again to see if it's a grower.
8Boris
No


3.5

This album is pretty inconsistent. Can't say I like the punk parts. I'd recommend it to people who like doomy punk, though. Wait, what?
9Modern Color
From The Leaves Of Your Garden


4.0

Yeah.

Yes.

Nothing wrong with it.
13The Acacia Strain
Slow Decay


4.0

Good for sure, but still a disappointment.
14Jared Dines
Shred Fest


Is this going to be legit or comedy? Might hit the Jukebox on this one.

3.0
Eh, just a whole lot of hoopla. Too many solos because METAL and not enough songs for sexy dance time.
15Ways Away
Ways Away


Jukebox malfunctioned, started playing this after Dines instead of going back to the top.

5.0
But what a pleasant surprise. This album is amazing. And the cover of Beach House's "Gila" actually does it justice.
16Entropy (AU)
Denouement


4.5

Just what the doctor ordered.
#stillnotacureforcovid
17On Hollow Ground

4.5
The jukebox is on a roll. Next one looks shitty though.
18Synovial
Songs of Silver


6.0
Genius guitar work, great lyrics (prose/novel style), heavy as fuck, beautiful, unpredictable melodies that just make sense, great energy all around.

Very progressive, heavy metalcore.

MUST HEAR NOW.
19Windwaker
Empire


TYMAN128

4.5
This jukebox is a gold mine. Good melodies on this album, which has been uncommon for this style lately.
20Prison of Mirrors (ITA)
De Ritualibus et Sacrificiis ad Serviendum Abysso


3.5

Sounded really cool, but an album this repetitive has no business being nearly an hour long.
21If I Were You
Radiant Dark


4.0
High-quality metalcore, but nothing really memorable.
22Mikau
PHANTOMa


3.5
An ambitious album, but it really falls flat considering the amount of effort it seems went into it.
23Morphiend
Fiend


4.0
Outstanding harsh vocals, but the cleans were pretty awful. The album had a fresh sound, enjoyed it.
24Marissa Nadler
For My Crimes


4.0
Great album. Some of the lyrics were repeated too much in a way that bothered me, but the rest was fantastic.
25Vespera
A Fragile Seed


4.0
Very good album, reminiscent of trve cvlt nv metal at times. Catchy songs kinda.
26Amarionette [US]
Sunset On This Generation


3.5
Great swan/ progressive metalcore, but a little whiny and nothing I'm itching to hear again.
27Blaqk Audio
Beneath the Black Palms (Side A)


2.5
Inoffensive enough, especially considering it's a dated industrial sound, but there was nothing enjoyable about this either.
28Far
Water & Solutions


2.5
I don't see what all the fuss is about.
29Underoath
Define the Great Line


4.0
Solid release.
30Underoath
The Changing of Times


4.0
A trend-setting album for the genre, some serious heavy-hitting, memorable songs on this album. The songs are a bit hit-and-miss, though, which really brought down the overall album score for me.
31Panda Riot
Infinity Maps


4.0
Nothing bad about this one.
32Weeping Hour
Hunger and Thirst


TYMAN128

4.5
Had to listen to this a few times. The melodies aren't really that strong, but the artistry is through the roof. Electric, snappy guitar riffs and great intensity throughout. Reminds me a lot of my favorite album of the year so far, Lovelorn: Moon by Before I Turn.
33Celine Dion
D'eux


FEDEX and/or LORDE

2.0
Celine Dion makes worse music than I expected. It's montage-in-80's-downtown-NYC trash. Her voice is spectacular and production is on point. The p.o. shit songs could have fared worse with another vocalist I guess.
34Vein
Old Data In A New Machine Vol. 1


4.0
Starts off strong and slowly comes off the rails.
35Anni Rossi
House of Rossi (Mixtape)


2.0
I was fully expecting to like this. Instead, I've found consistently off-tune vocals, cringey lyrics, odd and pretentious "samples" (they're recordings of herself that resemble samples), and somehow with all that, it's still boring.
36Madeline Kenney
Sucker's Lunch


4.5
Perfect uses of reverb, great instrumental sounds, and the drudgingly consistent layering really makes this an essential drift album.
Edit: been jamming the fuck out of this album, may have to 5 it someday.
37Sweam
Lounge Music for Cat People


4.0
Might bump this up, awesome album. Not that memorable so far, but I want it to be.
38Imperial Triumphant
Alphaville


4.0
Really interesting, nice stuff. Sometimes feels gimmicky though. Like certain sounds are there just to be edgy or set them apart from the abundance of monotonous death metal.
39Hockey Dad
Brain Candy


3.0
Cute alt rock. Enjoyed some of the songs. Some were grating. Never gonna listen again. Not sure how this album got on my Jukebox, actually.
40Good Tiger
Raised in a Doomsday Cult


4.0
A couple spectacular songs in a sea of great. A good listen in any case, if only to enjoy the unique vocal stylings.
41Black Crown Initiate
Violent Portraits of Doomed Escape


4.0
I enjoyed this on repeat for most of an entire day but ended up humming their old album afterward. I wanted to like this a bit more and gave it ample opportunity.
42The Microphones
Microphones in 2020


3.0
One long song, and it got pretty old after about five minutes. He added distortion to the guitar for a few seconds, and I got my hopes up, but then it just went back to the same shit. It was okay, I guess.
43Emuness
Open Wounds


TYMAN128 the Jukebox King

Quality musicianship, songs could be a little more memorable to bump this rating up.
44Crosses

UZUMAKI

4.5
I'm pretty sure I heard this at one point, but now I can be positive. A good listen, as expected. Will have to spin a few more times to get all the juice out.
45Destroyer
Kaputt


DEDEX

3.0
A lot of this fell flat for me. A jazzy, dancy post-punk album has to have some quality melodies to really excel, IMO. It has the right vibe, and didn't go anywhere. Then I got whiplash at the end of the album because I really loved "Song for America," and hated "Bay of Pigs" enough to skip the last half of it. And that was that.
46Ever Eden
Illumine


CRXMATEO

5.0
Holy fuck. This ticks off everything I love in music. The vocals were sublime, and not in a way where his range was huge or his voice was unique... it was just perfect. I got goosebumps a handful of times, loved every minute, and then it ended abruptly at a 16-minute runtime. What. The. Fuck. I need more.
47Spangle call Lilli line
PURPLE


JOHNNYOFTHEWELL

3.0
Right out of the gate, we were off to a bad start, because this album interrupted the best thing I've heard since #18. But I tried to get over that, and listen properly. Okay, yeah. A nice, refreshing sound. At first. Then it seemed repetitious and was much like trying to replace a hearty lunch with a tall glass of milk. And then the hunger grew while the milk became warm, and I had to choke down the last bit.
48Mellow Gang
Adjourn


BUDGIE

4.5
Sonically, this album lies somewhere between Destroyer and Spangle call Lilli line. But it brightens up the bleak, without removing the melancholy. The fast pace and dragging vocals complement each other well, and the 80's-like electronic soundscapes flesh out the album well, in a very budgiecore way.
49Aristeia
Demoralization Of The Luminary


4.0
Good shit, technically masterful, well-assembled progressive deathcore. I feel like it's lacking a bit of songwriting substance, though.
50Young Jesus
Welcome to Conceptual Beach


2.5
Pretty sure the Sput charts were my recommendation for this. There's nothing really bad about it, but I have a very difficult time finding anything objectively superior about the album, as to explain why it's rated so highly. It's just not very good. It's music for the sake of making music, in a typical rock way. It sort of blends some post-rock into post-punk, which should make it more interesting, but nah.
51Ingested
Where Only Gods May Tread


4.0
I liked it. The blackened vocals were nice, and the heaviest parts were my favorite. Some of it seemed a little dated, which held this back a bit for me.
52Mount Eerie
A Crow Looked At Me


4.0
God, those lyrics are heavy. Can't even pick them up.
53Martin Grech
Hush Mortal Core


4.5
This one's kind of an exciting journey. Was not expecting this style at all. It's like a post rock, alternative rock, progressive metal mix? Beautiful at parts, aggressive in others.
54Keleketla!
Keleketla!


3.5
Another very fun album. I really thought I was going to hate this by the genre mashup, but it's pretty dang good. It would be great "waiting on hold" music to keep your mind off waiting. There's always something new and dancy going on.
55Tkay Maidza
Last Year Was Weird, Vol. 2


3.5
This one's really hard to rate... very hit-and-miss. Some of the songs are pretty great, some of the lyrics are cringy. Her annunciation/rapping isn't the best on all the songs, but her singing is on point. I think we're going to have to do some math for this one. 3.5 + 3.0 + 2.5 + 4.0 + 3.5 + 4.0 + 2.5 + 4.5 = 27 || 27 / 8 = 3.4375
56The Ruins Of Beverast / Almyrkvi
Almyrkvi / The Ruins Of Beverast (Split)


4.5
I think I like the first half of this split with Al Murky more, but The Ruined Beverages half was pretty decent too. The overall dark, sinister mood blends from one band to the other well, but the rhythm really changes things up, even from the third to fourth song. I don't mind it, it keeps things interesting. The only thing I don't really care for on this album is the (snare?) drum on the last song. It's mixed pretty loud and drowns out a lot of the music.
57Karmacipher
Introspectrum


4.0
Heavy on the brooding dissonance here. Each song has a lot of variation, yet somehow I have a hard time distinguishing one song from another. Good background jams.
58Lamp of Murmuur
The Burning Spears Of Crimson Agony


2.5
Just the worst kind of black metal. There's little here to interest me, but I didn't find it offensive either. The interlude and outro were the best parts, I guess.
59Bob Dylan
Rough and Rowdy Ways


3.5
I like Bob Dylan's voice a lot more on this album than from what I've heard on his older stuff. There's a lot less of that moaning and swaying. This album talks a lot about all the cool shit Bob's done in his life that makes it less of a tragedy that he's old now. His forced rhyming is actually pretty neat and intellectually pleasing. I kind of like this, but probably not enough to listen to it again... but I wouldn't be against it either.
60Illuminati Hotties
FREE I.H: This Is Not the One...


4.0
Fun and catchy. Kind of too much for me sometimes though. It's better in bite-sized pieces. There's some pieces in here I can really sink my teeth into though. The lyrics in content/bedtime are really fun... frequent letdown is pretty sweet. IDK, this album makes me want more when I stop listening and want to stop when I start.
61Funeral Leech
Death Meditation


3.5
Sonically good, but all the songs are very samey. Nothing stood out to me on this.
62Earth Groans
Renovate


TYMAN128

4.0
Thoroughly enjoyable classic hardcore/metalcore. Great arrangements and variety, but the riffs and melodies don't strike me as very memorable upon first listen.
63Kidcrash
Jokes


JOHNNYOFTHEWELL

3.5
Good instrumentation. Favorite parts were the post-rock style picking. Very pretty. I probably won't revisit this, but it was a good listen.
64Defeater
Lost Ground


DEDEX

4.0
Another full-blooded post-hardcore act. This one has some nice breathing room in the songs that keeps it from becoming a white wall of sound. Seems like a grower too.
65Jawbox
For Your Own Special Sweetheart


3.5
Post-hardcore from '94? Good grief. Pretty legit songs. I recognize "Savory" from a Deftones cover. If I'm being honest, I don't really like their sound nearly as much as I like the songs themselves. I don't think it has aged well. Feels dry. Some of the songs themselves are really good, though, and I like how the singer harmonizes.
66Bright Eyes
Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was


4.5
My favorite Oberst since Wide Awake. Impeccable songwriting on this fucker. I really like the folky orchestral vibe. It doesn't even feel pretentious, which is a miracle for Oberst. Some of these melodies rely really heavily on the stringed instruments in the orchestra, just used like any other band would use synth. It gives it a really full sound. Other songs have surprising instrument choices that later on feel necessary to get that desired effect. Yeah I like this a lot. Such smart timeless tunes.
67Windvent
Relief


CRXMATEO

4.5
Great lead guitar, vocalist's cleans remind me of the dude from Shields. It's not ground breaking or anything, but it's progressive metalcore done really well, so what more do you need in life?
68Invent Animate
Stillworld


4.0
The harsh vocals are soooo good. The songs are pretty decent, though nothing really stood out to me.
69Widowspeak
Plum


4.0
Mazzy Star, is that you? No... no. Good album. Surprisingly solid melodies on some of the songs. Some of the others are a little sjmplistic.. "Sure Thing" actually has an identical guitar riff to one I used to play in a shitty rock band I used to be in. And I didn't even know how to play guitar. Yeah. It's that simple.
70Powerman 5000
The Noble Rot


2.0
Polished and cringey. Too bad.
71Zella Day
Where Does The Devil Hide


4.5
Catchy songs, but none are obnoxious earworms like on her last album. Her sound had matured a lot, not so sure about the lyrics though. I feel like she has a semi-decent LP somewhere in the studio that she trimmed up into an EP of really solid singles.
72Blake Rules
Day Drinking In The Kiddie Pool


3.5
He's so hit and miss. He's such a try hard that he goes in and out of being humorous, then transitions to embarrassing, but sometimes kind of cool. He really needs to lean in to his humorous side consistently, and I think people would actually take him more seriously, oddly enough.
73Brigid Mae Power
Head Above the Water


3.5
Some of these songs are killer, but she's not very good at the vocal acrobatics she puts herself through.
74Declan McKenna
Zeros


4.5
I loved his last album so much. I don't think anything he will do in the future will ever live up to that 5.0, but this comes close. The hooks he writes are so piercing and memorable, definitely will be humming this one a lot.
75Elysian Fields
Transience of Life


3.0
Mazzy, surely it's you this time? No... man, that's weird. ... So yeah, this is kind of a disappointing album after how much I remember liking Last Night On Earth. A couple decent songs.
76The Pineapple Thief
Versions of the Truth


4.5
First listen was pretty good, but these guys get better every replay. Not sure why this album is rated so low... it seems like something anyone could enjoy. Straight forward song writing with hooks galore, and I love it.
77Behemoth
And the Forests Dream Eternally


3.5
Pretty good black metal. It won't be in my rotation, but adding to my collection just in case. Waiting for the day Spotify lets me play all my albums on shuffle without a playlist.
78Rogue
Aeon


4.5
Some of these riffs are so god damn slick, holy fuck. Simultaneously impressive and catchy, which doesn't happen too often.
79Fit for a King
The Path


4.0
I'm not sure what all the hate is about on this album. Some of the heavy parts are really hollow, but others are done well. Some of the choruses are fantastic. I think I like their poppier side most.
80Into It. Over It.
Figure


3.0
Kinda boring. When I first skimmed through it, it sounded like it was going to be great, but it's not.
81Dir En Grey
Withering to Death


2.0
I guess I just can't get into these guys. They always sound like they're all playing different songs to the same rhythm. It all seems so out of place, matching the moods between instruments and vocals. Not good.
82Jambinai
Différance


UZUMAKI

4.0
In and out of chaos, very much an album to experience, not casually listen to. It could do without the whatever- stringed- instruments that mimic a latex balloon squeal. Otherwise a fantastic album.
83Deftones
Ohms


4.5
It's Deftones. I'm bummed that there are no memorable singles like "Hole In The Earth" or "Minerva" but on the other hand, there isn't a single weak song. It's a real grower.
84The Ocean
Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic


4.5
This album is so strong it's almost intimidating. They're doing everything right here, and I think this has 5/5 potential.
85Svalbard
When I Die, Will I Get Better?


4.0
This is really good. The only thing I don't care for is the redundancy of the harsh vocals. The clean singing is really nice, I wish it was utilized a bit more.
86Gospel
The Moon Is a Dead World


4.0
Good shit.
87Iress
Flaw


4.5
This album sucked me in within the first few seconds. It's so good. Very much in the vein of Chelsea Wolfe or King Woman. Not sure if this is a grower or not,,, the album isn't very catchy, so maybe the subtle nuances of the melodies will come through when the album becomes more familiar.
88Kendrick Lamar
To Pimp a Butterfly


3.0?
God damn this album is pretentious. Some of the songs are pretty decent, but a lot of it is a bit too avant-garde for me, in a jarring way. I can appreciate the experimental aspects of its unique sounds, but it really isn't up my alley. The song "Alright" slaps some serious cheeks, though.
89Inventure
Sociopath


4.5
This album runs the full gamut of metalcore riffage. Monstrous technical riffs, droning atmospheric notes, open 0-0-0 deathcore rhythmic strumming.. It has it all. The vocals shouldn't be overlooked, though. The vocalist has quality singing and supreme growls. First listen was outstanding, but we'll see how the replay value fairs.
90Darko (US)
Dethmask


4.0
This goes hard! Some of it feels like it's being heavy for the sake of being heavy, but they do it well.
91Anaal Nathrakh
Endarkenment


4.0
I liked it. The dude has such unique vocals. I wish they'd experiment a bit more like I know they can, but it's still really good even if it's not blowing my mind from sound clips of machine guns.
92Jonsi
Shiver


4.0
This was quite an enjoyable experience. It was much different from the last album I listened to from Jonsi (Go, which was ten years ago already). The electronic use of sounds is at the forefront here, giving it a much less personal feel, but the melodies behind the occasional autotune were quite lovely.
93Eartheater
Phoenix: Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin


4.0
This feels kind of like an EP, because so much of this is interlude between the really fantastic songs. The interlude feel to this album doesn't really add to the music for me, just delays the enjoyment. I realize the point of the album is to have a brooding, unnerving feel, sandwiching the lulling choruses, but I would have to simultaneously be in two different moods to enjoy both portions of it. Would have been a 4.5 if slimmed down, I think.
94Teenanger
Good Time


3.5
The riffs are fantastic here, but the vocal melodies seem to have little thought put into them. The title track, "Good Time," is the only song I really loved on the album.
95The Wytches
Three Mile Ditch


4.5
This album was well worth the wait. It's alternative rock with a post-punk influence to it that makes it a little gritty, a little moody. I would put it somewhere in the middle between The Trail Of Dead and Bauhaus. These songs are all killer. I doubt too many people will be disappointed with this release.
96Sumac
May You Be Held


3.0
This wasn't even worth my time to search for them on Google. Bandcamp delivered the goods, but it was barely good. It's an epic journey of an album, but somehow it takes me to all the boring places. It's just lacking a lot of substance, in exchange for its vast experimentation.
97Meshuggah
Catch Thirty-Three


4.5
I wasn't sure about this until about halfway through the album. I got used to the repetitive nature of the djenty guitar riffs enough to hear the differences that are actually present. I really love how the album plays as one long song, but they split it up into 13 song titles for clarity. Okay, now that I think about this more, I'm not sure if the songs kept getting better toward the back half of the album, or if I just started enjoying the band a lot more halfway through. Will have to listen again.
98Dog Fashion Disco
Erotic Massage (Redux)


PORCUPINETHEATER

3.5
It's hard not to tap your foot to this album! It's really great for what it is, but it's a lot cheesier than I remember it being.
99Death Grips
The Money Store


4.0
This one might get a lot of attention since I don't know of many artists that sound like this. Good stuff.
100Toundra
Das Cabinet Des Dr. Caligari


4.0
Pretty much a flawless album, but it still didn't blow my mind or anything. Very good!
