5.0 classic
Animal Collective Feels
I remember when I was 4 or 5 I approached everything with that brilliant sense of curiosity and naiveness that children who have yet been exposed to the worlds social standards and accepted evils. Every sound featured on Feels is a remembrance of such a time and creates an innocent atmosphere lost in the joy and texture being produced by Animal Collective.

Converge Jane Doe
It's been long overdue that I bump this to a 5. Even when pigeonholed under a genre filled with a ton of laughable
bands and overused techniques, Converge display a heavy sense of artistic sincerity that makes them quite an
anomaly within the metalcore genre. But even in the most unbiased, objective perception, Converge display on Jane
Doe an unconventional, yet believable stride in the way they approach their music. The vocals are loose and wild, yet
follow a truly defined bark. The music aggressively thrashes and switches pace, but also shows itself to be
constructed in a manner that matures and paces itself in a cinematic manner throughout the album. Throughout all
the intensity and the metal-intended purposes, there is no doubt that passion and ambition are what truly
underly this hectic, yet beautifully constructed album.

GZA Liquid Swords
Probably the best wu-tang effort ever. RZA's production is really the best worth mentioning here, with his dark, atmospheric production, matching his hard-hitting 4/4 beats; He basically created the best backdrop as possible for GZA and other featured rappers. GZA, while not as technical as Ghost or Rae, not as eccentric as ODB, or even as chill as Meth, is certainly the most tamed and lyrically talented, presenting an easy flow that he glides over with lyrics about chess, kung fu scenarios, and the most imaginative stuff ever presented by an East Coast rapper.

High-pitched vocals croon out Amphetamine Beat poetry (actually the message behind the lyrics is really cool, but the lyrics themselves are psylocibin-addled rants, and only that) while bombastic drums go balls-to-the-wall (not in a good way though).

As bullshit as that entire rant is, it makes the album sound really awesome.

Brian Eno and David Byrne My Life in the Bush of Ghosts
This album pioneered the production style of hip-hop and I have the Bomb Squad pruduction team to back me up. The wacked out loops and rhythms made out of whatever they could find (synths, guitars, basses, metals, kitchen appliances, religious ceremony recitings), had a prominent impact on the production of It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back. It and Remain In Light completely revolutionized the way recording and sounds were treated.
Bucket Full Of Teeth IV
Cage For Your Box
basically a compilation of all the amazing tracks cage put out in the 90s. Backed by gritty old school beats with a lot of bass and dope textures, the raps on here range from radio live performances from 92' to classics like radiohead and agent orange. cage rapidly spits out drug-filled and violent imagery throughout the compilation and displays true lyrical ability(listen to "crazy man ahead" to hear some of his serious early chops).

Fugazi 13 Songs
Fugazi seems really into their music. In the songwriting process, it seems they toyed around with riffs a lot, because I don't think they are actually trained in music. And the songs as a whole are just great. Lots of great vocal lines and Guy's lyrics are really cool and slightly introspective. Each track stands out.

Glenn Branca The Ascension
I think it's time somebody offers Glenn Branca to do scores for horror movies. Not that this is all sort of freakish clatters of noise. There are certainly wonderful, actually well-organized and composed moments. The drums on this record are phenomenal, bringing the various guitars into direction and rhythm. The guitars on here work hand in hand, and bring this large orchestrated, dissonant yet melodic pieces. The onslaught of sound on this record is truly awestriking.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
Possibly the post-rock equivalent to Miles Davis "In A Silent Way"? I think so. This record flows along at no set pace or agenda and combines the intense, the ambient, the moving, and the grooving features that i cherish in music. This record does not contain particularly independent and definable instrument features, but comes together as a collective of sounds. i mean obviously you can hear instruments with the likes of guitar, violins, keyboards, drums, samplers, things of the sort. but they only build up the music and work together. all in all, it's brilliant music that acheives nothing but what art is really supposed to acheive; reaction.
though to be honest, the best feature of this album is that it doesn't sound like sigur ros.

Radiohead has made their best record in years, and that's all that matters. This is the sound of Radiohead at their best, letting go of pretense, coming down to Earth. And it is a near-flawless record, only fueled by Radiohead's imagination."

The vocals. I mean the range of electro-soundscapery, to slint-esque minimalism is enough to warrant a 4.5, but I swear the vocals are the most passionate and desperate vox I've heard in a long time, and the way they are abstractly phrased over bleak, yet blossoming instrumentals is simply incredible. Easily will become a classic.
Megadeth Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
You know I've really never been a fan of Dave Mustaine's whiny vocals. But the music is one of the defining moments not just of thrash history, but metal history. These guys lashed out killer riffs and solos, with the intensity of a hardcore band.

Whether it be the intense, converge-esque moments, the post-rock passages that seem to have an emo take on Explosions in The Sky, or maybe it's just the passionate wails of "Realise time won't heal a goddamn thing" or "One day my dreams will meet my fears", Mesa Verde have crafted an album filled with emotional energy off of grinding drums, passionate vocals, and melodic guitars.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez A Manual Dexterity: Soundtrack Vol. 1
Definetely very soundtracky. Umm....it's fucking beautiful. I love it. Just heard it recently and it blew my mind. Omar Rodriguez has never made more effective ambient music than this. Very layered like a lot of his work, but the guitar isn't as domineering. A couple of songs are even piano lead. Its got lots of random electric tinkerings throughout it, but it only completes this wonderful peice of art. I love the way some songs start of boldly and get weirder and sort of fade off. Sounds horrible in writing, but its really excellent.
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Se Dice Bisonte, No Búfalo
Omar's most jazzy album, no doubt. It's funny, through all the shit the sputnik community gives this, i thought this would be entirely omar wanking over pseudo-hard funk tunes. I could not be wrong. It's more like a combination of tons of crazy effects Omar has learned over the years, combined with modern, sort of mutated versions of "Bitch's Brew-esque" instrumentals. And Cedric is just the bomb on this one. Don't beat me up guys!

The Antlers Hospice
Hospice is one of those albums that work only when you're alone; silberman has one of those voices that are so soft,
so fragile that it goes from a soft, dull blur to something really heartfelt, depending on the environment of the
listener. the music is immersive, it's ambient qualities requiring full attention of the listener to find themselves
moved. in a room of happy people, Hospice is unmoving, impenetrable, and too gloomy to make it through. on rainy
days, when the listener is isolated and trapped inside(much like how the album was recorded), the music blossoms
and the lyrics resonate. i only listen to this album on rainy days.

Since each track on this album is an individual masterpiece, I find this album can be a bit tedious. With each track being long, epic, and complex, it's hard to listen to any more than 2 tracks in a row.
But getting past that, this is probably one of the better albums I've heard in a while. Extremely intense musical ability, really cool post-rock, jazz, electronic crossover, and in general just a fresh, well orchestrated sound.

stuck between a 3.5 and 4. first of all, you have to be in the right mood to listen to this album. the synthpop sound can get very grating. the dreamy, ethereal sound can get bland. the instrumentation sometimes may appear to be the same on every song.
But those are rare cases. When in the right mood, the musical intensity is a blast and you can just lie back and live through the 80s all over again.

I truly believe mono are out of the post-rock range. This shit is classical and classic it is. Who can forget the marching drums, the epic crescendos, the walls of noise? Oh, wait. That sounds like post-rock. But take my word for it. This shit is tight.
cons: a bit of variety would be nice, can be occasionaly tedious(occasionaly), and do all the songs really need to be equally epic? For if all is epic, none is epic. Not that it isn't epic. It's epic. But not too epic. Epic enough to be nicely epic. Epic.

really tight jazz album. i really like the sound of the rhodes, and the flute works like any sax or trumpet on this album. the vocalist is annoying, but she is easily ignorable. what game will we play today is really quite corny and quirky, though it sounds nice. other 3 tracks are brilliant, only occasionaly dabbling in the boring, corny, or lameness. It shows that Chick Corea had further potential beyond being in Miles Davis's backing band.

Dr. Dre The Chronic

What do you get when you have, a few awesome songs, mostly very good songs, some very boring songs, amazing textural musicianship, and unexciting vocals? You get a 3.5! Though I still cannot express just how amazing some of the atmospere acheived on this album is.

Some of the best production i've heard all year, unfortunately Midnight Colour is a hard album to make it through. Hopefully it'll grow over time.

So Lou Reed wrote a pretty good rock album. No complaints. Its just pretty good. Nothing really outstanding or exciting, but a pleasant listen.

Interesting. While in terms of post-rock, this is quite varied in style, it's actually rather boring. Anyway, still a nice and interesting record. Just not as brilliant as made out to be.
Muse Origin of Symmetry
A fun heavy rock record. The band's musical skill shows off really well here. Matthew Bellamy doesn't make me cringe as much as he does on the rest of muse's stuff and I actually enjoy the tunes very much so. nothing genious considering its pretty much the same material muse always does, but its really pulled off here and sweetly demonstrates the musical prowess of the band. besides the drummer. he drums. hes ok.
N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton
Naked City Naked City
Natural Law Slump
Nirvana Nevermind
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Despair
A lot better than his solo album with jeremy ward.
Although this album sounds more like a bad acid trip than it does general music, it is rather compelling and is reminiscent of the soundtrack to The Shining.
The problems are is that there is a minimal amount of noticeable differences in each track, often featuring windy, effected field recorded sounds and pitch-shifted chanting. All the same, it's very interesting.

Very good album. Who knew that a 70s hard rock monster and a contemporary country musician could work so well, together. Although its not the most exciting or original, there are some very good tunes on this album. Great for roadtrips.

not the most exciting or innovative album, but a very fun, dissonant, hardcore tinted emo album with lots of energy.
The Birthday Massacre Violet
Fun, Catchy, Poppy. It's great. But I don't love it. they seem to have a pattern, with a set mix to how much synthpop, electric noodling, and simple power chord progressions they mix together. and it can get very unsatisfying. then again iron maiden had a pattern. and they were goo......oh nevermind i gave them a 2.5
The Flaming Lips Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
The way I see it this album takes near perfect musicianship and crazy sounds and ideas, but then creates an unfocused, cluttered, sometimes boring record. Many of the tunes are very nice(with the big exception yoshimi pt. 1, which i utterly hate), and the instrumentation really excells with this album, but it doesn't come together with this record. If perfected this record really could've been a bold statement, but it ends up just being a record with nice tunes that's semi-engaging and eventually leads with my head in my hands. But who knows. Maybe I'm just not well-rested.
The Flaming Lips Embryonic
Good record, but its lacks direction. Some fun tunes. Some regular tunes. Some pretty awesome tunes. But like most flaming lips albums, instead of being a cohesive statement, it's just bunch of flaming lips songs put on an lp.
The Radio Dept. Clinging to a Scheme
The Smashing Pumpkins Gish
The Tuss Rushup Edge
thenewno2 You Are Here
I guess the problem I have with this record is the same type of problem I have with The Flaming Lips. Great, fresh sound mixed with average songwriting. Its these types of records that remind me that innovation and a great sound cannot always drive a band. But its still a nice indie-semi electronic crossover that provides a good listen.
Title Fight Shed
Tool Ænima
This is a mysterious album. Tool is a mysterious band. Like Radiohead, they're great, just inspired horrible bands.
Anyways this record has insane musical work. Maynard's lyrics are really cool and ambigous. If there were a few more standout tracks or things that really stuck with me, this could be atleast a 4.5. But its definetely an experience album

Getting past that, this album is hardly an ambitious effort but seems to make it think so with it's tedious song lengths. Would've been better as 3-4 minute tracks. Would've been actually fun, because this record has downright funky moments.

Lightning Bolt Wonderful Rainbow
Lykke Li Youth Novels
Mika Life in Cartoon Motion
I know it seems ridiculous that I gave this a 3, especially next to the mars volta. But this album is infectiously catchy. lots of fun sing a long moments, whether it be the vocals or instrument or a sound. however this album at times can be infectiously annoying.
Mike Patton Pranzo Oltranzista
Nas & Damian Marley Distant Relatives
No Age Weirdo Rippers
I really hate the vocals on this record. Even on promising sounding songs, the vocals ruin it. Which is really too bad, because there are a few noise tracks which are mostly instrumental, that sound beautiful. A lot of songs are boring, with the occasional nice guitar riff. Some bands are good at sounding raw. These guys aren't.
Though some songs are quite fun to listen to. And did I mention the last track, escarpment, rules?
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Solar Gambling
Omar, it's high time you ditch your fucking girlfriend. I mean it's dope and all that you want to restrain from your technical prog wankery, but your tunes are becoming a bit elavtorish and I'm blaming it on Ximena. Go back to banging Cedric.

20 5's and the album hasn't even been officially released? To quote MJ ...."Self deception is possible"......nah but really it's like ratings have no sacredness these days.
The Crystal Method Vegas
The Exploration Basement Demo
adorable lil emo release. Gentle guitar tapping and really pained shouting. The vocals come off as a bit overdone at times, but they ultimately help build an atmosphere over the gentle instrumentals.
The Flaming Lips Clouds Taste Metallic
Ugh. Once again the Lip's pretty tight musicianship is featured on this album, but is accompanied by the really annoying vocals of wayne coyne. Pros: This time, they go for a western feel, kids! (please note the sarcasm)
The Mars Volta The Bedlam in Goliath
Bad for a Mars Volta album. Good for just any album. The sort of avant-garde funk metal attempt they're going for in this record just really doesn't work for me. I mean the riffs and solos are pretty good, but they're not great. At times its kinda bland. And cedric's voice sucks on a lot of the songs. Getting past all the flaws, its well-produced and I would definetely give the time to listen to a few tracks.
The Who Who's Next
Thom Yorke The Eraser
don't get me wrong........the idea of this record sounds great. but its not exciting. thom yorke sounds like he recorded the vocal tracks when he didn't have anything better to do. some songs are very good and the rest are kind of bland. the music is not wildly electronic as its made out to be. its just a bunch of guitar and piano loops played over a drum machine most of the time.

fun. Aim and Ignite
I believe in the sincerity of this record. Its really a nice attempt at doing "good" pop music. But unfortunately, the vocals are too flamboyant for my liking and the tunes are too cheese-filled to be taken seriously. Makes Weezer seem like Sigur Ros.

Leathermouth XO
Megadeth Countdown to Extinction
Most average album ever. Anything better than this is good. Anything worse than this is bad. I like some of the tunes, I don't like some of them. Simple as that. Actually maybe it's a little better than average. But I consider it personally as a musical metaphor.
Ministry The Land of Rape and Honey
Muse Absolution
Not a big muse fan. This record, although very average, has some good songs like time is running out, thoughts of a dying atheist, and stockholm syndrome. But so much filler, and a shitload of boring, ballad type tracks.
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Cizaña De Los Amores
psych prog funk rock instrumentals that range from hideously underwhelming to decent, only to be further ruined by
Omar's monotonous, hispanic girlfriend.CEEEEDDRRRIIIIIICCCCC I MISSSSS YOUUUUUUUU. edit: really
though some of the riffs on here are really intricate and actually kind of badass upon further listen, but then they
fucking die in the background as his whore female singer croons latino elevator pop over it(sorry omarr). edit: hurhur
yeah someguestt i thought him and cedric were totally cirlcke jekrig fore thier eeitre fuk like 16 years of playing
together btu nah they atually bag mad bitches.

Weezer Raditude
This album really depresses me. Rivers used to be one of us. With weezer's debut album, he awkardly announced his presence and provided a calling for the socially untalented. we shared our tales of our desperate love lifes over pinkerton. this album is another pathetic reminder that weezer is dead. why does weezer insist on writing generic tunes? why are the majority of the lyrics about partying and the popular girls in school(or whatever bullshit rivers wants to discuss)? im tired of their bullshit 4 power chord riffage and the purposely mainstream structures and the hideous hooks. WHY WEEZER?!!! YOU HAD SO MUCH FUCKING POTENTIAL!!!! *cries and listens to butterfly off of pinkerton*
