What hasn’t already been said about this album? You don’t need me to tell you that this is great. I’m not even that big on hip-hop but there’s something special about My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Highlights: Dark Fantasy, Power, All of the Lights, Monster, Runaway, Lost In The World

In my opinion, Ball Park Music's best record. Puddinghead takes sonic cues from 90's alternative rock, making it BPM's most guitar-centric album to date. Sam Cromack's lyrics hit the perfect balance of the quirkiness of earlier albums and a more cynical snark.

Highlights: She Only Loves Me When I'm There, Next Life Already, Trippin' the Light Fantastic, Everything Is Shit Except My Friendship With You, Struggle Street

Released just a year after their debut album, Museum feels more refined, and has a bit more bite in its guitars. The opening "Fence Sitter" is full of manic energy, and may be one of the best songs Ball Park have made.

Highlights: Fence Sitter, Surrender, Bad Taste Blues (Part II), Great Display of Patience, Cost of Lifestyle

Ball Park Music’s debut album is a shot of energetic, exuberant and quirky indie rock, with a sense of unique Australian humour in the lyrics to boot. The sound is a little too chipper and a bit rough around the edges, but it’s something they’d go on to perfect in later albums.

Side note: The album cover gives me “Going For The One” by Yes vibes.

Highlights: It’s Nice To Be Alive, Sad Rude Future Dude, All I Want Is You, Alligator,

Twenty One Pilots’ most famous album also happens to be their least consistent. I will always look at Blurryface fondly for being the album to introduce me to one of my favourite bands, but out of their 3 major label albums, it‘s the one whose deep cuts I return to the least - and therefore the one I consider the weakest.

Highlights: Heavydirtysoul, Stressed Out, Fairly Local, Tear In My Heart, Polarize, Hometown

Pop music nerd. Defender of the Basic. Triple J, /r/popheads & Todd In The Shadows form all my opinions.

90+: Personal Classics - My favourite albums of all time.
89-85: Almost every track is great.
84-80: Most tracks are great.
79-70: Most tracks are good.
69-60: Mixed bag with a few highlights.
59-50: Mostly middling/bad with a few highlights.

Anything below 50 is a disappointing release from an artist I like otherwise.
