|17||The Arrogant Sons of Bitches|
Built to Fail
You're scaring me, Jeff
|16||The Arrogant Sons of Bitches|
You're getting there, Jeff.
I Look Like Shit
A mixtape of odds and ends. Although it doesn't work as a full album even this has its career staples.
|14||Bomb the Music Industry!|
Album Minus Band
The BTMI! debut is still great but a bit of a mixed bag overall. The production can tend to make the electronic elements sound pretty shrill and songs like "Sweet Home Cananada" fall flat.
|13||Bomb the Music Industry!|
To Leave or Die in Long Island
The production here is fairly sloppy too but "Syke!...." and the Spongebob sample speak for themselves.
Leavin' La Vida Loca
This doesn't get talked about too often and that's a shame as there are some fantastic cuts here, namely "Losing My Mind" and "Living In Hell."
|11||Bomb the Music Industry!|
I really came around to this record recently. The t/t especially is one of Jeff's finest moments.
The first low-point in Jeff's discog? Perish the thought. POST- is just as punchy and memorable as his other works. Some experimentation with longer song-lengths helps make it a unique note in Jeff's career.

Adults!!!: Smart!!! Shithammered!!! And Excited By Nothing!!!!!!!
The most streamlined BTMI album. Everything great about the band condensed into 21 short minutes.
|8||Bomb the Music Industry!|
Goodbye Cool World!
Glorious insanity put to tape. The early BTMI! sound perfected.
Possibly his tamest record musically? That doesn't make it any less amazing; it only ramps up the feels that much more.
Love in the Time of E-Mail
This album defines the magic of pop/punk and what it has ever meant to me as a genre. This gloriously hook-filled record reaches the heart in all the right ways.
|5||Bomb the Music Industry!|
This is my 5th favourite Jeff Rosenstock release and I still agree with everyone who calls it a modern classic.
Vacation Pt. 2. It's every bit as warm, infectious, and raucous as that record was but has an added level of maturity and introspection that pushes it over the edge.
|3||Bomb the Music Industry!|
I'm sorry Vacation, I love you, but I can't deny my feelings any longer. Scrambles in my favourite BTMI! record. "Sort of Like Being Pumped" is Jeff's best closer.

Three Cheers For Disappointment
An absurdly fun punk/ska opus and a genre staple.
Yep, I've settled it. This is the best punk album of the 2010s and now in my personal top 3 records in the genre. The back half of this record is the best thing Jeff has ever done. It's energetic, unpredictable, and profoundly emotional.
