07.24.10 Good Music All Genres

Good Music All Genres

This is just a list I am putting together of all the different genres of music and the albums that lay within those genres that I enjoy. Sorry I didnt give a note on all the albums, I am a strong believer in the whole eye of the beholder things. I gave notes on the first couple so you can see why I love the music. Its mostly lyrical and singing for me but I know good guitar when I hear it I hope you can enjoy if you dont thats cool too.

Alexisonfire is the band that turned me on the the hardcore genre, I love the smooth mixing of the vocals and the screaming; Although at first the screaming turned me off to the band, it eventually warmed on me and this album almost single handedly turned me on to the hardcore genre. My favorite song on Crisis would have to be, This Could be Anywhere in the world. The guitar screaming and singing mold together in my mind to create a song that makes me want to get up and and go punch someone.
2The Avett Brothers
I and Love and You

I found out very recently about this band, they have a country/folk demeanor. That said I love all genres but country is the hardest for me to love, and the Avett Brothers break the mold of a typical country band. They have meaningful and creative lyrics which to me is great refresh to the typical backyard summer bbq lyrics that are all to common today in country music. Songs like I and Love and You show there creative lyric writing, while January Wedding and Kick Drum Heart show how simple they can be using there guitars/banjos and percussion instruments but still create a lovable sound
3The Avett Brothers
The Second Gleam

The Second Gleam for me is made up of two songs, Bella Donna and Murder in The City. The Avett Brothers in my mind are lyrical geniuses, all their lyrics are complicated and meaningful but are still easily paired with simplistic rythym and guitar.
4Cage the Elephant
Cage the Elephant

I heard my first Cage the elephant song on the radio, Ain't No Rest For The Wicked, to me not a very great song to pop culture for me so I intially just wrote them off as such to pop themed, but when I took a deeper look i found much more complex and animated lyrics. His voice is one those that is lovably unique and his lyrics in Back Against Wall and In One Ear, show his creativity and angst that he puts in to his writing. In both of the songs just mentioned come in with heavy old school rock guitar that provides a steady rythym with plenty of unique riffs which allows
5 La Dispute
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair

Im a new Dispute fan, his voice although rough and off key provide a strange comfort to me in that I can look beyond his voice and decipher all of the lead singers metaphors. I also enjoy the guitar very much coming on very heavy but is paired well with the drums and vocals. This band was built for eachother eachthing completing the other to create a awesome album.
