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

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 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

With one of the best pop punk albums from the 2010s, Like Pacific is an underrated band worth checking out.

I remember hearing about Like Pacific for the first time when I heard that they were touring with Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, and State Champs. I went to Spotify to listen to the entire album and loved every track.

With catchy hooks galore, fantastic instrumentation, and raw and powerful vocals, there’s not a single song on here that I would consider to be weak. The theme of the ... read more

Edit: This album has grown on me even more, so I felt it was necessary to adjust my rating for it.
Original score: 85
New score: 88

Seaway is a band I’ve known about for a while, but other than a few songs, I was never able to fully get into these guys for some reason. When I heard the title track and first single of the album, “Big Vibe,” I was hooked immediately. When they released their second single, “Wild Things,” I was blown away and was so excited to hear ... read more

I hope you didn't listen to any of their new releases šŸ˜‚

That's great to hear, I have done the same likewise (minus Chroma, I'll find it, don't worry)

I'm so very happy you enjoyed "Chase This Light" so much, it truly is one of theore underappreciated releases in their discography. Great shout about "Dizzy" you're right it is a beautiful song and is easily in my top 10 of songs they've released.

So I have a funny story about Sunny Day Real Estate, I saw them live at a festival in 2010 as they were on the stage next to the one me and my friend were at and they played inbetween Taking Back Sunday and Alexisonfire and we thought it was the most boring act in the world. I hadn't given them a chance until you recommended Diary to me and I'm so glad you did, it was excellent.

I'll be sure to give you some more recommendations in the future, in hopes you'll do the same for me šŸ™‚

Single Mothers is a strac contrast in comparison.

I don't think the rest of his discography hits the heights personally at least not when compared to his other (side?) project Pet Symmetry.

yoooo hard agree
thank you for the pick :)

Hi, I am here with a question:
If all album covers were edible, which album would you choose to eat?
and yes, this is for a list.

I'm so glad you're enjoying these albums so much. I'm enjoying yours recommendations equally as such, though I'm sorry I haven't gotten to them as frequently as I would've liked to, this week has been incredibly stressful.

I haven't been able to get The Drew Thomson Foundation album out of my head for the last couple of days. He's also the lead vocalist of Single Mothers who are a great Punk band.

I was the same way, I had Proper. on repeat for about 3 years before I ever checked anything else they'd released, but I just love his writing style and how he can turn a phrase so easily.

i just have to say...
going through your ratings was surprisingly interesting

also thanks for the follow <3

Yeah, it's difficult to get that balance right with artists who have allegations against them.

I'll find a way to listen to it...even if I to import the record.

I thought you might've šŸ˜‚

That's so great to hear, their albums usually do end up stuck in your head for awhile basically begging for a relisten and the "King of No Man" is no different. It is a shame about their breakup but I see The Menzingers as an extention of sorts as they have/had brothers in both bands.

As I said "Jimmy Eat World" to me are the best band, they can do no wrong and "Chase This Light" is easily my second favourite by them, but I feel it gets no love, probably because "Futures" would've been incredibly hard to follow up on so it'd be interesting to see your take on them.

Yes! I forgot how many good songs were on that album! I had listened to both Brand New albums before, but I'd stopped listening to them after the allegations against Jesse came out :/ The only other two albums from the list I've heard are "After Laughter" and "Chroma" the latter of which isn't available on Spotify in Australia so I hope my CD of it has survived the move I've just undertook so we'

Feel Something, was one of the albums I knew (and really enjoyed) but hadn't gotten around to listening to again to give a rating. I thought I had listened to their EP previously but I guess not, I'll be sure to add it to the list.

I'm glad that you liked it, here are some more recommendations to check out when you get the chance. (I'm certain that you've heard most of these before)

The Smith Street Band - Throw Me In The River
Captain, We're Sinking - The King of No Man
You Blew It! - Keep Doing What You're Doing
Into it. Over It. - Proper
Press Club - Late Teens
The Drew Thomson Foundation - The Drew Thomson Foundation
Retirement Party - Somewhat Literate
Swordfish - Rodia
Sincere Engineer - Rhombithian
Jimmy Eat World - Chase This Light (This is my personal favourite band of all time, but I saw you had already rated Futures, my fav)

I have definitely noted your love for Paramore around šŸ˜‚ it will be interesting to hear it again in a new light.

I think I've listened to about half of the list before, and I enjoyed those, so I'm excited to hear the rest.
