Lawrence Arms - Metropole: Less than a stand out, more than a fill in.
Kings Of Leon - Mechanical Bull: Stadium rock that can be skipped.
Kay Dot - Hubardo: Greatness from a hit-or-miss band.
Joan Jett - Unvarnished: Meh from beginning to end.
Into It. Over It. - Intersections: Good, but not as much as Proper.
Into It. Over It. - Proper: Does not do the live show justice.
I Am The Avalanche - Wolverines: Nothing unexpected.
Hotelier - Home, Like NoPlace Is There: Great first track makes way for good rest of the album.
Tony Molina - Dissed And Dismissed: So simple, so great.
Hold Steady - Teeth Dreams: Not even close to Boys & Girls In America.
Haim - Days Are Gone: Some really, really great tracks on here.
Green Day - Demolicios: Exactly what should have been released.
Gauge - II: Not as compelling as I, but worth a listen.
Jacco Gardner - Cabinet Of Curiosities: If you had told me this was a long-lost album from the 60s I would have believed you.
Foundation - Hang Your Head: Good, nearly-great, hardcore.
Flatbush Zombies - Better Off Dead: Rap group trying too hard.
Every Time I Die - Hot Damn!: Do not get the love.
Eminem - Marshall Mathers LP2: Most adventurous album from production standpoint.
Eleven Thirty-Four - Reality Filter: Too obscure for how good this is. Desperate vocals make it a classic.

Earth Crisis - Salvation of Innocents: One of, if not the most listenable of their albums.
Kevin Drew - Darlings: Too relaxed.

Death - III: Not quite a cash grab, but on the border.

Chance The Rapper - Acid Rap: Too much hype to dismiss as easily as I an inclined to.
Ceremony - Distance: Trying too hard to keep up with the greats.
Neko Case - The Worse Things Get...: Came across as hit-or-miss given her other output, but looking forward to listening again.
Burns Like Fire - To The Ground: Great little punk EP.
Jake Bugg - Shangri La: Trying, almost too hard, to not be who people thinks he is.
Jake Bugg - Jake Bugg: I get the comparisons to Dylan, but in style only.
Danny Brown - Old: Better than most, not to quite elite.
The Bronx - The Bronx (I): Really great for what it is.
