Here's my week, a revisiting of a few old artists.

01. Eminem - 56 plays

I finally gave in and downloaded a copy of "Relapse" that had been sitting in my inbox on another forum for a while now. I can't say I was overly impressed on the first listen, but after I decided to grab "Encore" and "The Eminem Show" again it began to make sense.

02. Input - 49 plays

I've had "A Radio With Guts" for a few months now and have really liked it, and I've been listening to a lot of Sadistik lately and the two really sound alike so I went looking for the rest of his discography, downloaded it and listened to it contently.

03. Devin Townsend - 47 plays

C'mon, you'd expect a week to go by without him on my top 15? Dream on nyuaka. I don't even have to explain it anymore.

04. MC Chris - 32 plays

Say what you will about his voice or bizarre song topics, the man can make a pretty dope beat. His skits are also pretty funny, but yeah, I think I have to give it another few listens before I make a definitive decision as to whether or not I should look up more stuff by him.

05. Gogol Bordello - 30 plays

Listened to both their albums one day after school, I go through phases where I really can't get enough of these guys. I caught them at Warped Tour in 2006 and they were easily worth the price of admission.

06. Dub Trio - 24 plays

These guys opened for Matisyahu last Monday and I was completely blown away. Never before had I heard instrumental stoner/drone metal mixed with reggae and dub influences before. It went really well and I immediately went out and got their discography.

07. Common Market - 22 plays

I got an EP of theirs back in February and I really liked it, but it never blew me away to the degree that I had to rush out and try and find the rest of their stuff. I can honestly say I was bored one day and decided that I wanted more stuff by them. I like what they have to say and that they're from the Pacific Northwest, but their production value leaves much to be desired.

08. Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip - 22 plays

I really love these guys, Scroobius Pip is a seriously underrated MC. He can write some incredibly intelligent and thoughtful lyrics, and deliver them flawlessly. His DJ Dan Le Sac also creates some pretty interesting beats, focusing more on the electro element, but also adding bits of noise rock, in fact one song seriously sounds like it's Sonic Youth in the background.

09. Hypocrisy - 21 plays

Probably my second favourite Swedish death metal band after Opeth. I love the fact that Peter Tägtgren chooses to focus the lyrics on things like the paranomral and extraterrestrial, both subjects that fascinate me.

10. Sadistik - 21 plays

I really cannot get enough of this guy, he's incredibly deep and melon collie. I find myself really relating to his lyrics and his delivery, he can also really spit some lyrics fast when he wants to. Keep an eye on this guy, he's really going to be going places in the next five years.

11. The Herd - 15 plays

Got into these guys from one of our Aussie members. An Australian live band hip hop group that are very politically charged. While their lyrics mostly pertain to Australian politics, I find it quite interesting because I don't really know much about them, so while I am only getting one side, it's still better than nothing.

12. Kirk Witt - 14 plays

An old friend from high school, his solo instrumental metal project that's incredibly addicitve, if a bit monotonous. I sent it to RezZ as my contribution to the Weekly Music Trading Post and am eagerly awaiting his thoughts on it.

13. Rehab - 14 plays

While this album didn't do as well as I was hoping in my "Gift From Me To You Series" I still maintain the belief that it is one of the best rap/rock albums put out. I can find myself relating to the lyrics a little too well, especially to the song "Bottles & Cans".

14. The Devin Townsend Band - 14 plays

Never really gave their sophomore album "Synchestra" much of a listen besides the odd song here and there. I was a little surprised at times as to how heavy it got, far less accessible than their debut album "Accerlated Evolution", some songs were on Strapping Young Lads level of heaviness.

15. K`Naan - 14 Plays

What can I say, I love this man and ``Troubador`` is one of my favourite albums of 2009 so far. The song ``15 Minutes Away`` is something that I can really relate to, having to wait on money orders is never fun, but god damn does it ever feel good when it comes through.
