So today I've been listening to...

Paramore - Brand New Eyes

Its a little moodier than Riot, but that doesn't necessarily mean its a bad album, infact, its a very decent record, I give it a hearty 8/10.

Teamkiller - Bad Signs - 7/10

Agressive hardcore from somewhere in Deutschland, nothing amazingly outstanding on the album, but its OK, it gets 6.5/10.

Death Before Dishonor - Better Ways To Die

Well, I must say it, I think this is by far the best album DB4D have ever released, theres a lot of new flavour on there, melodies, little clean sections, and theres still old flavour in there too, fast grooves, dutty breakdowns and a lot of "WHOA"s. Being the fanboy I am, I shall give it a well deserved 10/10

Madonna - Ray Of Light

IMO Madonna's best work (nothing beats Vogue though haha), and also IMO, the ninth track "Frozen" is the best song in her 25+ years career, I can't really name a song I don't like, so Ray of Light gets 9/10.

Yes, my music taste is warped...

The Almost - Monster, Monster

Great new cd by the drummer/singer of Underoath

Best song so far from what I have heard is "Monster"

I'm enjoying this thread, more album reviews are in order. A couple I've been listening to this week

Deadmau5 - For Lack Of A Better Name



Saw that one of you guys I'm friends with on Last FM was listening to this a lot so I thought I'd give it a go. Really good, upbeat dance music, great beats. Hard to listen to as a whole album, gets a bit boring all in one sitting. Probably the best new dance act around though. 7/10

Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More



Something very different from Deadmau5, a folky bluegrass kind of band. Not something that happens often, the best way to describe them is Noah And The Whale without the clichéd lyrics of heartbreak. Very epic and even danceable in places, really enjoying this record. 9/10

I rarely listen to complete albums, since I've never heard an album that I liked entirely. There's always a few songs I don't like, and for me this is true for all artists. So most often it's a mix of various artists and various genre's with songs i like.

The only album I still listen to and of which I like almost all the songs is Pearl Jam's Ten.

I've been listening to the jam since I was young and still like there songs. Basically this album has all the jams best songs. A couple of favorites are Going underground and A Town called Malice.




I also like listening to Green onions by Bucker T. and the MG's, I've got it on LP and it's scratched to bits but still a good song.

I started kicking back with the three albums by the death metal act Anata, some progressive rock/metal from Evergrey (their older stuff is the shiznite!) and listening to some old school death metal with Gorguts: Considered Dead. Been playing that last one since yesterday, never did listen to it.

off Anata's last album Under A Stone Inscription I believe...Not quite sure off hand. Crap quality.

Couldn't find anything off their debut that I've been listening to but this is pretty close, just a little faster is all.

lets see...

Misery Signals - Controller

My favorite songs from it are probably Labyrinthian and Homecoming.


the breakdowns on both of these songs are just sick.

Also been listening to a lot of Cursive. Best album in my opinion is Domestica.

The first 2 tracks, The Casualty and The Martyr are my favorite ones.


This is theirs best album IMO and is a concept album that deals with Tim Kasher's divorce.

and of course good ole Thrice and Coheed & Cambria, my two favorite bands ever.

Thrice - Artist in the Ambulance

i can listen to this album all the way through, but my fave song from it is Blood Clots and Black Holes.


And from Coheed & Cambria i like all their albums, but my favorite song, Delirium Trigger, is from their first album, The Second Stage Turbine Blade.


i listen to a lot of other stuff, but these are the most frequently played at the moment.

First of all thanks you Younikorn for posting about the new album by The Almost, love them way more then Underoath and complete forgot they even had a new album coming out, the tracks I've heard so far are pretty solid.

Anyways I've really been digging Matthew Good's new album "Vancouver

This is hands down my favourite album of '09 thus far. It's got this weird vulnerability to it. You can really tell all the shit Matthew Good has gone through over these last few years (read up on it, typical life stuff, he pretty much hit rock bottom and now he's back better then ever) and it's almost endearing that he gives you a little bit of an indirect personal glimpse. The music itself is a fusion of rock with indie and some elements of acoustic/soft rock. 10 tracks with 55 minutes of music, can't remember the last time I bought an album that was almost an hour long. 10/10 without a doubt.

The entire album is on youtube so I suggest checking out the tracks

"Last Parade"
"The Boy Who Could Explode"
"Great Whales of The Sea" (this track is comprised of whale noises through out....amazing!)
"Volcanoes"
"Fought to Fight it"

I'm LOVING 'Black gives way to blue' the new Alice in Chains album, I'm too lazy to find a picture.

It's an awesome return, Wil DuVall sounds almost EXACTLY like Layne.
Each song has something realy cool and special, my favorites are:

Your Decision
Black gives way to blue
When the sun rose again
All secrets known

For the last couple of days I've only been listening to Them Crooked Vultures bootlegs. They might honestly just be the greatest thing ever to happen to music. It's Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age on guitar/vocals, Dave Grohl on drums, and John Paul Jones from fucking Zeppelin on bass/keyboards. I got to see them Thursday and nothing has ever been this awesome.

Before 21st Century Breakdown, I would have agreed at you and not every song on this album is brilliant, but some of them I can't get enough of

As a massive Green Day fan since 1993(seen them 32 times), I'm extremely disappointed in the new album. I've loved every other one, but nothing on this album worked for me at all. I'm glad somebody likes it, though.

Lately I have been listening to The Sound of Madness from Shinedown. It's not my usual taste of rock music (Killswitch Engage, Metallica). But it is actually a great CD.

It's that time of year: Mid-fall, Halloween on the horizon...it's time to find joy in depression and break out the Type O Negative


Type O Negative: World Coming Down
One of my favorites by them. Need to replace it though since the damn thing I bought was a friggin' radio sampler and not all the songs are the full length, including that track I posted. I do have an edited version on their Least Worst Of... CD.


Annihilator: Criteria For A Black Widow
One hell of a dark thrash album. I love it, means a lot to me, too, and really speaks about the bullshit that I encounter in my world. I wish the band would return to this style of writing.

King Diamond: The Graveyard
Horror telling perfection, and also very suiting for the aura of the month where I live. The album, like all of his releases, are conceptual horror stories, and this is one of the later chapters. So, if you listen and it doesn't make sense, check out some of the earlier chapters.

Enslaved: Mardraum - Beyond The Within
I recently got this album, I never actually heard a lot from Enslaved until I picked up this and Frost. Unfortunately I need replace Frost so I'm just rocking this one. I believe I have their release Isa and wasn't too impressed with it. Oh well. Viking tinged black metal. Epic for the fall.


Immortal: All Shall Fall
What is there to say? It's Immortal, they reunited, this is their latest, it kicks ass.

That's what I've been listening to the most. Other then that it's just random CDs from the collection.

This band will do crazy things to your ears.

This is the third song off their new album "The Blue Record", released just twelve days ago (13th October), and is the successor to their 2007 release "The Red Album".

The song is called "Jake Leg" listen to it please, for your sake not mine, and I guarantee you will love it.
