Super awesome ones
Bloc Party- Silent Alarm
This album is amazing. There are no mistakes. The vocals are always in tune, they couple with the instrumental parts perfectly, the guitar and drums are balanced, and the album opens your ears and mind. End of story.

Between the Buried and Me- Alaska
No matter what any metalhead says, this album is experimental. BTBAM has always experimented in previous albums, but none compete with the performances in this. The first half of the album is mostly metal with jazz fills and has a lot of mixing. Excluding a couple songs the second half is mainly jazz with some metal fills, which completely throws off the listener and makes them gain interest.

...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead- Worlds Apart
There was some hype about this album in the beginning of last year, but it died out too soon. This album was superb and combined many different instruments that create interesting and out-of-the-box indie material. The vocals really suited the songs as well and caught the ear.


Don't even waste time stealing these
Weezer- Make Believe
I really like Weezer, so it's sad to see that they changed ground from albums that were creative and thought-provoking to an album that was dull and made for music television.

The Black Eyed Peas- Monkey Business
The Black Eyed Peas had a lot of good songs before this. They were creative funk or soul with little hooks. Now, BEP just went way the hell overboard and embraced the pop scene 100%. It payed off and brought them attention, but the songs are thoughtless and contain dull beats.

The White Stripes- Get Behind Me Satan
I know they were trying to experiment, but I think they went in the wrong direction. Jack's guitar riffs were fine on previous albums, and his acoustic playing just doesn't say as much about the music in this one. The lyrics on the songs were good, but the instrumental parts were bad. And even if the lyrics were the best in the world, which they weren't, the songs weren't mastered correctly due to not recording the album in a professional studio. Revert or die.

test icicles - for screening purposes only

LCD soundsystem - LCD soundsystem
one of the first albums i got this year and it took half a year for me to really appreciate it. now i do, wow.

Death from above 1979- your a woman, im a machine.
turn the volume up very loud, put your earphones in, enjoy.

worst
BRMC- howl
never thought id say this, but with exception to "aint no easy way" and "the line", this album is drivel.

Darkness- one way to ticket to hell and back
someone hand me a shotgun. just piss poor.

White stripes- get behind me satan
i dont like this new direction, i want the old stripes back. quite fitting that the only song i like is an Elephant cast off.

It got great reviews.
Yeah that DFA1979 album is great.

Yeah, they kind of went in a different direction.
Half of the songs mention God and the whole album is country.
The combination forced me to laugh...and not buy it.

[QUOTE=Alexisonfire]
Worst:
Darkness "One Way Ticket To Hell"
The 80s are over and hearing the same un original music is getting lame and do something new and wear some clothes christ
Audioslave "Out Of Exile"
Grunge is done, and you've managed to release a crappier version of your last album. Amazing.
Weezer "Make Believe"
Yes, it sounds like everything else you released, beverly hills = lame-o hit song. QUOTE]

Alright, 1st of all I've gotta agree with you on the Weezer song being really cheesy and all, but I think that's just there natural style, ya know?Of course the song's a hit, but I wouldn't care whether a song's either a hit or not as long as it was good music!!!Some of the riffs/music seem alright for a basic rockin' tune, but the part that ruins that song is that bi tch in the background saying "gimme, gimme" all too much!!!Some songs get overplayed and you might start getting a little sick of hearing it....
...With this one song, with the girl sayin' "gimme, gimme" so many damn times, it only makes you sick of the song even faster than originally!!! One thing I gotta say is if they're (Weezer) gonna use her to sing that song for every show, every tour, they might as well put in a handpuppet and have the handpuppet set off explosions and, therefore, kill that annoying sound that the girl sings!!!
With the Audioslave one, I agree that their music is definitely getting worse!!!Ya gotta give some credit to their 1st disc for being pretty good, but the 2nd then proved to be way worse!!!Rage was what it was all about and they've quickly lost much of that energy/greatness!!!If they even put out a 3rd album together, well, I'll just leave ya with this...
...It's 3 strikes, now you're out!!!
