Adjy The Idyll Opus (I-VI)
AFI The Art of Drowning
One of the first real punk albums I ever heard. It changed my life. To the pure insanity of Smile, the technicality of The Despair Factor, and the gracing existance of Morning Star, there are so many noteworthy parts of this album.
AFI Sing the Sorrow
AFI Black Sails in the Sunset
Malleus Maleficarum is easily the best when it comes to their punk era (pre-STS). After I heard that, I gradually discovered how much of a breakthrough this album was for the band. One of the best.
AFI Crash Love
Yano? Flawed but fuck it. This is the most natural this band has ever sounded. The last 3 tracks on the actual album, most of the bonus tracks, and End Transmission are all top tier AFI and Okay I Feel Better Now is the single most beautiful thing this band has ever written.
Blaqk Audio CexCells
Catchy, diverse, just give me Bright Black Heaven so I can have more.
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
This is just as good as it gets. I rediscover this album every listen and it just gets better and better.

La Dispute Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair
Outstanding. Words cannot descirbe how heart-warming/breaking this album is.
La Dispute Wildlife
"and all the ones who seem to fit the best into the chorus never notice there's a song and the
ones who seem to hear it end up tortured by the chords when they fail to find a way to sing along"
is the most real line I've ever heard and that's what this album is to me. real pain. real
emotion. this album gives me feelings like no other album does and in some way, shape, or form,
these songs will always be there for me to match any number of situations where I'll need them the
most. Venture into the Wildlife. I'm sure you'll find something that will make you think of
something in a new light
La Dispute Somewhere at the Bottom... (10th Anniversary)
My Chemical Romance Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge
My Chemical Romance I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love
PM Today In Medias Res
The intro to Don't Exist puts the biggest smile on my face. The song is a journey with its themes of changing as life progresses, Beatles references, and 5/4 chants. The fact that it all comes together so coherently is amazing. Don't Exist functions as a sort of anthem for everything In Medias Res is trying to accomplish, making it the perfect centerpiece. The album clocks in just under 40 minutes and yet, I feel like they accomplish so much with their beautiful passages, lively guitar lines, and heartfelt and honest vocals. These lyrics paint such a hopeless picture that strangely is complimented, or rather countered by music as bright sounding as this. I am not kidding when I say this is the musical equivalent to sunshine with all of these beautifully executed ideas and sing-along moments, but still, the tone in the lyrics feels hopeless, almost apathetic, and yet so very conscious of the world. In Medias Res, being pmtoday's last album didn't even get a proper sendoff until a while after the band broke up. If it wasn't for their other project, Move Orchestra, it would really go to signify how real these lyrics were to the band, but instead, I'm glad they still have a drive in them to showcase their musical talents. rpmtoday has crafted one of the most important albums that I have ever listened to and I think this is an album that will greatly resonate with those who are still trying to find their place.
Rise Against The Sufferer and the Witness
Welcome to the club. TSATW is Rise Against's most consistent as well as enthralling release. They really put their hearts into this one and I could go on and on and on about how every song here is nothing short of astounding but I don't need to. Survive is this band's best song (hell, the ending core may just be my favorite of all time), The Approaching Curve displayed excellent use of spoken word, the middle of Drones is one of the most powerful moments this band has created, and Roadside is this band's best ballad. I seriously could go on and on. A classic modern punk album indeed.
There Will Be Fireworks The Dark, Dark Bright
Perfectly paced and masterfully crafted. The Dark, Dark Bright knows when to explode and when to stay calm. Whether it be the beautifully constructed instrumentals or the sheer passion displayed vocally, this album is layered to the brim with sounds of awe. I honestly don't think that the concept of an album could be better defined. It's so full and I love every second of it.

A Lot Like Birds No Place
Adjy June Songs Vol. 1
AFI Decemberunderground
AFI Burials
Alright. Realistically this is a 4. I really can't get over the lack of a softer track rwhich are normally this band's stronger points. I also can't get over how there are rliterally no big moments in any of these songs. Like really, "The Face Beneath The Waves" rjust needed some sort of epic bridge to be a worthy AFI closer. It had so much going for it rwith the dissonance in the verses musically but oh well. Still, this has some great tracks rsuch as "The Embrace", "Wild", "A Deep Slow Panic", and "17 Crimes". Yet, nothing sticks rout as one of the best tracks I've ever heard by this band. Hopefully that will change. I rremember when "...But Home Is Nowhere" was my least favorite on STS.
AFI The Missing Man
This is the most passionate the band has sounded in forever. It sounds like a return to form in a sense but also it's such a huge step forward. If this is a sign of what's to come then I need this band to keep going for a few more albums.

It's that time of year again when sputnik loses their shit over a pop album. Just listened to the
first track and I really don't see what makes it even remotely special.

Edit: ...that title track is amazing, will give this an actual listen soon.

Edit 2: I think I can comfortably call this one of my favorite albums of all time with Run Away
With Me being my favorite on the album itself. This is why I now get super excited whenever

Fantasy is a feel-good groove, Letting Go is pure emotion, and the last two both have some killer unexpected endings. I can't wait for a full length cause this was fire.
Fall Out Boy Folie a Deux
So comfortable with this at a 4.5. You can tell how much effort was put into making this a big album. I think what makes this such an enjoyable experience for me is the high creativity level.

This album is kinda the best. One of the most fun things you'll ever hear, guaranteed.
I the Mighty Connector
It's pretty much the next version of Satori. It builds on the sound they've been working on and
it tries a bunch of new things as well. If you liked Satori, this won't disappoint. For now, I
personally don't know which I prefer. Yet, there still isn't anything as good as Escalators
unfortunately. The Frame I is pretty sick though

Edit: My apologies. The Frame I is every bit as good as Escalators, if not better.
Icarus the Owl The Spotless Mind
I kinda wanna dedicate some time to reviewing this band's full discography. This album definitely deserves a review.
Icarus the Owl Qualia
Mythomaniac is kinda perfect and that alone should warrant giving this EP a chance

where's that 2.5 sound off about how removing a sixteenth note every now and then doesn't make you
cool? i told my friend about it and now we laugh about that shit all the time lmao
Icarus the Owl Love Always, Leviathan
Icarus the Owl Rearm Circuits
the band your gf will suck you off to cause they're super catchy and also the band you and your
best bro will geek over cause oooo math

- but on a serious note, this is one of my all time favorite bands and the fact that they keep
putting out albums on a quality level of their own without becoming stale is insane.
"Doublespeak" and "Do Not Resuscitate" are the kind of pop-punk not too dissimilar from LAL and
"Hidalgo's Secret Hideout" and "The Vanishing Point" have a heavier tone more along the lines of
PW. They really cover all of their bases while making these songs feel fresh and developed.
There are also songs like "Dimensions" and "Ghosts of Former Lives" that embody this band in the
most perfect way possible. I personally don't think this is their best album but it is definitely
their best work/effort and I think anyone should check it out.
Invalids Strengths
Someone should review this because it's one of the greatest math rock releases ever. It's like they are doing all these crazy parts just to do them, but the songs themselves have oh so much substance both musically and lyrically that it blends so well. "Satellite" is one of the most well constructed songs out there. You've definitely heard twinkly talented math rock before if you've found this, but these guys have something special. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Invalids Fulfillment EP
Invalids doing what they do best. This time Pete's got a full band behind him and perhaps the most exciting thing about that is hearing how well these extra voices are handled on tracks like A Rather Mediocre Genius or Master of the Atom. This band is something else

The seamless run of Rusted Silhouette to Break Me Down is actually kinda epic. Fool The World is a gem for the same reason, just when you think it's about to end like halfway in, it goes all out. Most of the first half is just plain fun and has some nice added instrumentation. I come back to this like once a year to remind myself that Drake was actually doing some really good stuff. 3.7/5 sounds about right

I the Mighty Oil In Water
It's amazing how Connector made this one of my favorite bands. This EP is what I expected Brent's solo LP to be. I think the electronic thing in Miss Erray could have been fleshed out a bit more (yet it's still good) and Slow Dancing Forever, although nice was clearly inferior to the original (which is unfortunate since that's one of my favorites). Still, The Hound and The Fox's jazz arrangement is brilliant and Andrew's Song is beautiful. Playing Catch With .22 was good too with my only gripe being that the last part from the original song was left out. Overall a very cool idea and I hope they expand on these style's in the future.

Listened to it once and I'm in awe. It's an obvious step up from Final Frontier. All of the epics deliver. I don't think this will beat out my personal fave, A Matter of Life and Death, but you never know. Early faves are all four 8+minute tracks and Where The River Runs Deep. I plan on listening to this a lot more but for now it's in the 4.3 basically almost a 4.5 range and is definitely my current AOTY
James Blake Overgrown
Way superior to the debut LP. It's consistent from beginning to end. Tracks like I Am Sold, Life Round Here, and Retrograde are godly and they really show off his talent. On the other hand we have the title track, Our Love Comes Back, and Dlm for his elegance.

Lights Siberia
A surprisingly detailed and varied release. The uplifting anthem that is Banner, the fuzzy beauty of Siberia, and a splash of soft somberness in Heavy Rope and And Counting. Toes could have/should have been huge. Plus she makes the word "magpie" sound hot.

Satyr push the boundaries on everything established in their debut to such massive degrees of
success. Their knack for constant complex rhythms and feels is something almost none of their
swancore contemporaries are utilizing which further helps them stand out among the rest. I'd
argue that this album solidifies that they do have a bit of a shtick at this point which, pro, is
very cool and as I just basically said, unique but on the other hand, with a whole album's worth
of material in this same vein it's hard to not notice that it feels a bit samey. But for as tight
as this is, I can definitely overlook that for now.

Going to keep this at a 4. Yes, after hearing all of the singles, I really thought they lost their charm too. I was scared to listen to this because the only really good song was "Cough It Out". Since then, they have all grown on me immensely (especially "Cough It Out") and I must say that the other half of the album as a whole is miles better than any of the singles. There are definitely some cringe-worthy lyrics showing up here and there but they have some great ones as well. Songs like "Motorcycle" and "2YL" sound like the songs that this band should be making to follow-up their last release and "The Plan (Fuck Jobs)" sounds like something from their early releases mixed with the added instrumentation of this album. Those are about the closest to the band's previous material that we'll get here. The rest is a somewhat poppier yet vibrant "rock and roll" band having as much fun as they know how to. Album highlight "Plastic Flowers" is a testament to that and it may just be the best song in their discography. rLong story short, if you doubted this album because of the singles, you're in for a treat.

Leave A Trace is probably the best thing here and that's just fine. I think the only major issue is that they can probably only pull a safe album like this out once and get away with it.

Craig Owens' voice has went from in my opinion awesome and original, which was a very distinct high note, and was watered down. It's a shame cause I bet haters of Chiodos would have appreciated him more with this voice on a Chiodos record. Still like his previous band, Craig Owens still steals the show here. Songs are a lot less epic, but still the record is pretty catchy.

Disturbed Believe
This is what the band should have built upon. A dark sound with passhion and meaning. It seems all they produce now are albums with great singles with 2 or 3 gems in between. Believe shows more than that. Remember is their best writing to date (with the exception of the killer Facade off Indestructable). Liberate, Prayer, Believe, and Awaken show how catchy and well written they can be, plus the vocals are top notch. Mistress and Darkness are the ballads that have yet to be topped. Sure Overburdened and The Night are pretty epic but these ones were the originals.

14 years later and we finally have an appropriate follow up to It's Only Time. The first 4 tracks
tons of fun! Some of these are on the meh side (really just Love Back and Pots & Pans) but
overall this was a great listen.

Rise Against The Black Market
The Black Market continues where Endgame and Appeal To Reason left off. Some moments will rgive you a Sufferer and the Witness vibe ("Bridges"), but other than that, this is an album rof its own. Tracks like the title track and "Zero Visibility" probably show that off the rbest. If you've heard "The Eco-Terrorist In Me", don't expect anything else to come close rto matching that here because that was this album's beast of a track. But, if you are a fan rof the band, the last 2 albums especially, this is definitely for you. rThe main disadvantages are that sometimes they are definitely stepping it up musically, but rothers are a bit plain. Also, Tim's vocals aren't bad by any means, but they feel a bit rlazier this time around.

I bumped this to a 3 because To Struggle and Claw My Way is one of the coolest songs this band has.ri lose, i like this album now
The Word Alive Dark Matter
Telle still sounds weak, but definitely better than Real. Easily their most consistent record since Deceiver, with only one terrible track (Made This Way) and 2-3 average ones. The rest are all pretty solid. The last 5 songs are some of the best they've done in a while, with the absolute standout being the title track. It may be less technical than some of the stuff I remember from Real, but this suits the band better. And it's not all lost (bridge in Grunge is awesome, and the 2nd verse in Sellout is a good change-up). Overall, 3.4/5. I still think Telle's cleans rob this of being a true comeback, but it's a pretty damn good reminder that this band still has potential.
Thirty Seconds to Mars This Is War
Tilian Material Me
Some of these are gorgeous and well constructed (Up In The Air, Flutter, Someday, Perfect Lie, and Favor The Gods), while the rest is too safe. I really hope he builds on the best with the next full length.
Tilian Future Friends
Alive feels like the laziest thing he has ever done but the rest of these, especially Stranded and
Heartfelt are super fun
Tilian Perfect Enemy
Better as a whole than just singles. I don't think anything tops the best of Material Me which is a tad sad. "Didn't I Get The Message", "Stranger", and "Heartfelt" are the best.

Hands Like Houses -Anon.
Trenton needs to stop adding the most random, obnoxiously placed screams to nearly all of
these songs. He used to use his range and now he just uses that and it's payoff is
almost always worthless. Other than that and the first 2 singles, this album was pretty
decent. It's missing all of the depth and all of the amazing vocal display of the first
2 albums still, but the songs at least feel a little more interesting and varied this
time. Through Glass was fun and I actually really dug Black. This band is never going
to reach their full potential but this at least shows that they are competent songwriters
without all of what made them special in the first place.

I mean I was already tired but most of the middle put me to sleep. I'll give them credit for trying to change it up but a lot of this is underwhelming. I'll give it some more time, since the title track was pretty good and I enjoyed Nu Romantics minus the chorus. A Weak Ago and Good Mourning America were alright. Opener and Closer had some potential but missed the mark. Rest was meh.

besides DGAF contributing to the cliche of 2010's pop music (mostly in lyrics as opposed to sound (thankfully?)) this was pretty good. not as interesting as Kids In The Street but Tyson still adds a dramatic spin to an otherwise standard effort. good hooks, not great hooks. they thankfully haven't fallen into complete radio shit (even when trying to in the aforementioned track) like FoB and Panic and that's honestly the best part about this.

Their worst album. They sound completely washed out, Tim's lyrics aren't cutting it, and you've
heard most of these melodies before. That being's not bad, just bland. First 5 tracks
are pretty good but after that there really is no more reason to continue listening. Miracle is a
decent closer and Parts Per Million was the only other decent cut. The two bonus tracks are
probably the most daring on the album (which isn't saying much) but they are much more interesting
than all of these, with their only fault really being that the choruses are pretty cringey when he
says the name of he song in the song. If you were done with this band after Sufferer and the
Witness, there is nothing here for you. This is definitely worse than The Black Market and that's
pretty sad to say.

Surprisingly not the worst thing I've ever heard. The album was decently catchy and there were some cool sounds here and there. Too bad none of this showcases that these guys are way more than capable musicians who can really create something bif if they feel like it. rIf Dark Matter was them taking a step into something a bit more comfortable than the mess that Real was, then this was them playing it far too safe and for being their 5th album, that's pretty sad.
