New Found Glory - Not Without A Fight: Way better than expected.
Movielife - 40 Hour Train: Pop-punk perfection.
Movielife - Has A Gambling Problem: Finding their footing with solid production.
Movielife - This Time Next Year: Almost too poppy. Almost.
Movielife - Its Go Time: A little rough around the edges but you can see the potential.
Mouthpiece - Can't Kill What's Inside: Wish I could have seen them live. Heavy, slow and catchy in perfect compliment.


Mountain Man - Demo: Do you like American Nightmare, Suicide File, et al? Then check these guys out.


The Most Serene Republic - ...And The Ever Expanding Universe: Turn it up or it'll pass you by.


Mos Def - The Ecstatic: Hailed as a return to form, it's more hit-and-miss. So, yes, a return to form.


Modest Mouse - No One's First And You're Next: They just don't do anything for me.
Metallica - Master Of Puppets: I really wanted to hate this, but it's pretty awesome.


Mastodon - Crack The Skye: Easily their most accessible album. For better or worse.


Mastodon - Remission: Another solid album, just not my favorite.


Lucero - Rebels, Rogues and Sworn Brothers: I'm a little burned out on Lucero so this came across as merely adequate. Will try again later.


Lucero - Nobody's Darlings: An unjustifiably disappointing follow-up to Further West.


Lucero - That Much Further West: Easily their richest, fullest and most complete album.
Lucero - Tennessee: Qualifiable nuance escapes another solid album.


The Love Language - The Love Language: Deserving of a few more listens.


Jeffrey Lewis And The Junkyard - Em Are I: For fans of Daniel Johnston or quirky pop/rock.
Sondre Lerche - Faces Down: My new favorite Sondre album.
