Duke Spirit - Neptune: Wouldn't listen to again. Unless Travis Shettel (Piebald) has a more active role.
Heartless Bastards - The Mountain: Excellent classic rock-infused album. For (older) fans of Kings Of Leon.
Hazen St - Hazen St: A little cheesy in its delivery. Still worthy of a second listen.
Ducky Boys - War Back Home: No doubt that it's The Duck Boys. Brings me back 10 years, to a time more simple.
Hatebreed - For The Lions: Unfamiliarity with the source material makes it easier to enjoy, harder to appreciate.
Handsome Furs - Face Control: I have tried and failed, again, at really like Handsome Furs. Adequate, just not extraordinary.
Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest: Sometimes, like this one, an album lives up to the hype.
Grateful Dead - American Beauty: Endlessly catchy '70s pop/rock that defies their stereotype.
Sebastien Grainger - And The Mountains: Solid collection of songs as he tries to find his sound in a post-DFA1979 world.
Dr. Dre - The Chronic: Singles still hold up, but the rest is pretty hit-or-miss. Still a classic album.
Get Up Kids - Eudora: Only necessary for diehard fans and completists.
Get Up Kids - The EPs: Good enough to be appended on their LPs as bonus tracks.
Jerry Garcia - Garcia Plays Dylan: I could do without the 6 minute jams in the middle of each song, but then, I guess, that's Jerry Garcia.
Serge Gainsbourg - Historie de Melody: Not sure where to begin. Avant garde and sleep-inducing, both because it's entirely in French.
Jim Gaffigan - King Baby: Non-stop laughs. One of the best comedy albums I've ever heard.
Doves - Kingdom Of Rust: It's almost as if The Doves can do no wrong.
Future Of The Left - Travels With Myself And Another: Great post-punk and a huge improvement over their debut, but not without faults.
Fugazi - Demo: Poor sound quality makes for a frustrating and unconvincing listen.
Franz Ferdinand -Tonight: Unfortunately catchy and upbeat. Lucid Dreams aside.
Tom Frampton - ...As Marion Delgado: Best songs are when he's being someone else (Bright Eyes imitation and Mountain Goats cover).
Ben Folds - University A Capella: Cool idea, well executied. More compelling when familiar with source material.
Ben Folds - Stems And Seeds: Demos, throwaways and alternate versions of Way To Normal tracks. Only for diehard fans.
Fiery Furnaces - I'm Going Away: Adequate return to form, but lacking the catchiness and cohesion of Blueberry Boat.
