The Dillinger Escape plan- Irony is a Dead Scene

The Dillinger Escape plan Irony is a Dead Scene:

Mike Patton and Dillinger Escape Plan come together for a single E.P. which stands out as both artists best work. Dillinger has always been plagued by crappy vocalists, and luckily they caught Mike Patton during one of those brief time periods where he’d rather sing than make obnoxious sound effects. As usual Dillinger’s brand of Math Rock is vicious as it is complex. Patton adds not only some of his best lyrics and vocals, but also keyboards and other electronic doo dads. For five songs one is reminded of the potential both these artists have.

Explosions in The Sky-All of a Sudden I miss Everyone

Explosions in The Sky All of a Sudden I miss Everyone:

I hope this album wakes people up to the fact that your loud quiet loud dynamics and movie soundtrack harmonies are FUCKING BORING AND DATED. Just be grateful that people have fallen for four albums worth of your bullshit. You are the Thomas Kincaid of music.

The Band-Music From Big Pink

The Band Music From Big Pink:

The album I think of when I hear the term “Classic Rock.” Beautifully harmonized vocals, fantastic organ playing, and several great song writers. None of them died in a puddle of their own vomit while they were at their peak, nor did any of them have the, “I’m a huge douche worship me,” aura of many of their contemporaries. They were just a damn good band. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

KiD CuDi-A KiD named CuDi

KiD CuDi A KiD named CuDi:

A laid back album with good beats, and great lyrics. CuDi’s track Down and Out, is one of the best songs about substance use I’ve heard in awhile. The album only falters when CuDi tries to sing. A solid first release.

The Misfits – Walk Among Us

The Misfits Walk Among Us:

You own this album. If you don’t, what the fuck is wrong with you? This album is what pop punk should be. When I say pop, I mean catchy and fun. Take note that not one song is about a lame relationship or something equally inane. Rather they are singing about hacking skulls off girls and turning into Martians to rape people. Even those these songs are about the most absurd shit, they are still catchy with the ability to be lodged into your head for days. Very few albums I would call a necessity, but this is one of them.

Post-enjoyable geek pop. They should change their name to The Oh So Trendy Thick Black Buddy Holly Glasses.
