The Dismemberment Plan - Emergency & I
100
Thanks for the 100 followers!

It’s always been more difficult for me to say why I like something then why I don’t; negativity always seems to be the easier, quicker, and sometimes best option. Saying why something is bad, why you don’t like it or why it just isn’t for you is less personal, and keeps you less personally engaged from it, something you can point to as a reason to push it away from yourself. Using this mentality, I’ve nearly completely socially ... read more

Slipknot - THE END, SO FAR
60
The first thing I saw about this album's existence was an article with interviews from some of the band members talking about how they felt like this album was incomplete, or how they wished they had more time to work or had put more time into it. With comments like these, it was hard to go into this project with much optimism. Listening to it, though, it's not as bad as I was expecting. It just sounds like a standard Slipknot album to me, which is alright for what they do.
Cynic - Re-Traced
84
This is like Cynic’s Damnation by Opeth; it’s proof they can do music with predominately soft vocals super well that for some reason was a one off, with their future projects with predominately soft vocals paling in comparison.
الجن - حراس قبر حمزة مطرب المقدس
66
Time and time again I go into black metal albums knowing the kind of production many of them have, and time and time again I leave disappointed. The instrumentals and vocals are usually so good, as they both are here, but they sound like they’re playing in another room, which always makes it hard for me to really get into the music. This album sounds like it’s playing at a random venue 2 blocks down the road and you’re just vaguely hearing the muffled playing. It’s just ... read more

His voice isn’t that bad surprisingly, but every song on this record sounds like a cheesy, failed 80s sitcom intro.
Thrash Queen - Ashes to Ashes
35
The corpse of a band pumping out a wild monstrosity.

This album is extremely weird. Apparently a follow up made under the direction of the studio without any of the original members of Thrash Queen, instead using a bunch of seemingly random session musicians, but that’s just where the oddities begin. I’m not sure exactly what happened to the original band, but beyond the awful production of their first album, the music itself wasn’t really too bad. It was sort of run of the ... read more

It would be hypocritical of me to listen to it SO MANY TIMES for the last 10 years and not give it a 100! Amazing shit.
