Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi - Rome: Ironically, one of the better soundtracks.


Bon Iver - Bon Iver: Follow-ups are always hard.
Jello Biafra - Enhanced Methods Of Questioning: I'd have preferred a new spoken word album.


Bad Meets Evil - Hell The Sequel: To follow up a solid LP with something this good is rare.


Arctic Monkeys - Suck It And See: Don't like the evolution...
Against Me! - Total Clarity: Providing new, better perspective on my least-favorite Against Me! album.
Okkervil River - I Am Very Far: More energy wouldn't hurt.
My Morning Jacket - Circuital: Good, but not as good as past efforts.


Foundation - When The Smoke Clears: Beyond adequate heaviness, but offers little new and exciting.
