TS And Past Haunts - EP: No substitute for a new Piebald album, but far from terrible.
System Of A Down - Toxicity: Easily the best nu metal album I've ever heard. Still a few tracks too long.
Off - Four EPs: Fantastic early Black Flag.
Go Rydell - The Golden Age: A bit more gravelly but an easy substitute for those missing Kid Dynamite. I know I am.
Beatles - Decca Audition: Historically essential, but nothing more.
My Chemical Romance - Danger Days: Drops remaining pretense of being a punk band, opting for a pop album. And it's fantastic.
Jordaan Mason And Horse Museum - Divorce Lawyers: Obviously NMH inspired, but without any if the euphoria it's a tough listen.
Crazy Arm - Born To Ruin: Modern Against Me! without the arena-level hooks.
Kanye West - Beautiful Twisted Fantasy: Somewhere in the middle it lost me and was never able to recover.
Wovenhand - The Threshing Floor: Another solid album for fans of Califone.
Tom Waits - Closing Time: Sometimes perfect execution can mask a lack of innovation.
Vampire Weekend - Contra: Epitome of a sophmore slump, failing to achieve any of the high water marks found on their debut.
