Citizen - Life In Your Glass World
90
Citizen is easily one of my favorite bands. Youth and As You Please were both two of my top favorite albums from the last decade, so when Life In Your Glass World was first announced, I was obviously extremely hyped.

One of my favorite things about Citizen is that they reinvent their sound each album without fail. You can find a good mix of sounds throughout their discography, with post-hardcore, grunge, indie rock, alternative rock, pop punk, and emo being the best way to explain their ... read more

A Day To Remember - You're Welcome

Edit: Wow. Listened to this again and it’s even worse.
Previous rating: 49
New rating: 40

ADTR has been a top favorite of mine for almost 10 years now. Their perfect fusion of pop punk, post-hardcore and metalcore has always been enjoyable to me. A lot of their songs I've played over 100 times and still have yet to get tired of them. I can pretty much always enjoy their music no matter what kind of mood I'm in.

When Bad Vibrations came out in 2016, I felt it was a pretty big step down ... read more

Teenage Wrist - Earth Is A Black Hole
83
Teenage Wrist’s sophomore album is once again a good balance of alternative rock, shoegaze, grunge, and emo, similar to their debut. A few changes to the band were made since their debut, such as the former vocalist Kamtin Mohager leaving the band and the guitarist Marshall Gallagher taking over the vocals.

I think Marshall does a great job in the vocal department and the songs take on a lighter tone compared to when Kamtin was the vocalist. This album experiments a bit more than their ... read more

Florida Georgia Line - Life Rolls On
20
I’m having terrible flashbacks to when the class song my graduating class chose in high school back in 2013 was “Cruise.” That’s what started my dislike for Florida Georgia Line. Also, living in a small southern town in Florida, their music was inescapable from 2012 and on in a lot of stores and restaurants.

A few years later, I put personal bias aside and really tried to give them a chance. You know what? There are some songs that are not that bad at all, but they ... read more

Bearings - Hello, It's You
82
Bearings is one of my favorite recent pop punk bands. Their debut album, Blue in the Dark, was one of my favorite albums of the 2010s, so my anticipation was high for their sophomore album. Hello, It’s You is not on the same level as their debut album, but it’s still a great album. Blue in the Dark had no weak songs on it to me, while Hello, It’s You has a couple of songs that aren’t that strong. Despite the couple of weaker spots on Hello, It’s You, Bearings bring ... read more

I think people consider it their best album because it has 2 of their biggest songs on there, while I agree with you that "Document" is better, I'd argue that "Automatic for the People" is more memorable.

Very surprised that you hadn't heard of Somos before (RIP Phil πŸ˜₯) as they seem right up your alley, maybe it was due to them originally releasing on TopShelf Records which isn't known as one of the bigger record labels, but their next release came out on Hopeless 🀷‍♂️.

I saw that! Treat yourself, it's the best time of year to do so and I'm so lucky my parents send me money for my birthday each year at this time πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

That's right, we also had a lettuce shortage earlier this year and it got so bad that KFC had to use a cabbage blend in their burgers, but thankfully they're coming back now and are at appropriate prices. We've had a lot of rain in our farming areas this year which is why we've had a lot of shortages, maybe you've had the same happen there?

Oh no, that sucks, I hope you're feeling better now and good thing it came back just in time for Thanksgiving, I'm in serious envy over here as we don't have a "food holiday" over here so I hope you ate enough for me as well 😜

We had it last week and it tasted just like a normal roast chicken πŸ˜ͺ the "Cheesy Stuffing" tasted like normal stuffing and while there was a hint of vegemite rubbed into the skin (I guess?) if you had told me that was regular I would've believed you.

Yeah, I too was surprised with how good it was, I also didn't realise it had over 100million listens on Spotify, that's crazy.

It literally sounds all the same, Nirvana and Pearl Jam were obviously on the radio all the time back when I was a kid as well but even back then I just found it boring and lame (also it was popular and you know I can't stand popular things 😜) The only exposure I had of Alice in Chains was from a compilation album for an Australian Festival that I had and the video game Madden NFL 10 which was a little past their heyday.

Yeah, it was super disappointing wasn't it? Which is sad I thought they were going to be one of the next (relatively) big Australian rock artists but I think that might've sailed unless they can turn it around with their next release.

Also update on the Vegemite situation, we're currently in a potato shortage which means no Vegemite potatoes as we can't find them anywhere and I don't want to make them with Sweet Potatoes πŸ˜ͺAnd the roast Vegemite chicken is apparently just regular roast chicken, but with cheese stuffing, but I'm hoping to try it on Friday.

Oh yeah, 100%, I can't wait to not listening to it especially around that time of the year 😜

I wouldn't know, we don't have tailgates here, that's an entirely American phenomenon.

Actually. that doesn't entirely shock me, you don't give off the vibe as someone that would have a tattoo I guess? πŸ˜› But that's cool, you should totally go for a frog one if/when you want one.

Well that sounds like an album I have to hear then πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thanks! Unfortunately, like an idiot, instead of planning to spend the entire weekend playing the new Pokémon game that weekend, I've agreed to work πŸ˜’

Now I'm curious as to why you think it's one of the worst albums you've ever heard. Thank you for the recommendations, I'm really looking forward to listening to "Oh! Calcutta!" I've been meaning to listen to it for the longest time, but have never gotten around to it. On the opposite spectrum I've never enjoyed Pearl Jam, grunge or the whole "Seattle Scene" 🀐, but I was really surprised by the Alice In Chains albums, so maybe my previous biases are unfounded.

Believe it or not, I haven't done much experimenting with Vegemite πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but I will be sure to broach this idea to my partner and will hope to have it within the coming weeks.

I'm sorry you put yourself through that, it'll be a cold day in hell before I go out of my way to listen to them willingly. (So no doubt you'll recommend them for me in April 😜)

Yeah, that makes sense, but you'd think the massive amounts of money that they're getting from TV contracts and prizemoney would get reinvested into the academic side of things. I can only imagine how difficult that would be for yourself, but at the same time people NEED to tailgate 😜

Do you have any tattoos that you're willing ton talk about?

For this month I've decided on something a little different, since I'm turning 30 I thought we should go back and listen to 4 of the highly rated albums from the year 1992 (I've also found another album for your 2014 list so that'll be number 5) so let's sit back and hopefully enjoy what that year had to offer.

Alice in Chains - Dirt
Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine
R.E.M - Automatic for the People
Somos - Temple of Plenty

No our colleges are purely academic purists, where you can play organised sports on the side but it's not publicised and is purely for fun. I don't think it's there's a huge market for them, but what else is ESPN going to show on a weekend when there's little to no other sports on. I think the reason why America could be so obsessed with College Sports could be because that's where all the players that funnel into their sporting leagues come from whereas other countries have junior development systems tied to the clubs.

That could also be due to a lack of pro teams in those areas (i.e Alabama/Mississippi/Kentucky etc) vs the amount of pro teams in the northeast, that and you guys have whole towns seemingly built around colleges which feeds into it.

My other one is Mind over Matter which is in reference to You Blew It's song "Match & Tinder"

We have stickers on products that we get from overseas as well, but I don't think it's anywhere near the level that you guys have.

If there is one band I cannot stand it's Imagine Dragons, they were playing a new song of there's recently called "Sharks" and it sounds like it comes from a C-Grade animated kids movie.

Yes, I also didn't realise it until people started pointing it out to me πŸ˜… I definitely didn't hate it as much as I thought I would/did back when it was all the rage.

About
