Wesley Wolfe - Numbskull: Solid singer/songwriter that I look forward to more of.
Wild Man Fischer - An Evening with: Merry go, merry go round.
White Lung - Deep Fantasy: Nothing revolutionary or essential.
Jack White - Lazaretto: More so than Blunderbuss, Lazaretto feels like a continuation of the White Stripes.
Weezer - Pinkerton: Not the biggest fan, but if there were an album to return to, this is it.
Weezer - Weezer (Green): I want more pop or more punk, but cannot get behind the middle ground it settles into.
Ween - The Mollusk: Still cannot get into it.
Ween - Chocolate and Cheese: No, sir, I do not like it.
Gerard Way - Hesitant Alien: If not for the pedigree, likely would not give it a second thought.
Wavves - King of the Beach: Should be a repeat for days to come.
Watsky - All You Can Do: Not the best showcase for new fans, but hard to deny the talent.
War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream: Feels like an essential album from a time long ago.
Violent Sons - Nothing as it Seems: Sean Murphy has one of those voices I will follow forever.
Velvet Underground - VU: Essential demos and odds-and-ends.
Velvet Underground - Loaded: Hits is what was asked for and what was delivered.

Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat: How is this not as big as it needs to be?
Velvet Underground - Velvet Underground and Nico: Five stars indeed.
Various - Whiplash: So good.
Various - Broadsheet Music- Year in Review: New (to me) Broken Social Scene is enough.
Sharon Van Etten - Are We There Yet: Indie folk that blends into the crowd.
TVOTR - Seeds: More intensity, almost as catchy, but lacks a Wolf Like Me.
TS and the Past Haunts - Cool Butt in French: I love Travis, but his post-Piebald stuff has been lacking.
Title Fight - Hyperview: Clear progression for the band, and I am thankful to be along for the ride.
Thank You Scientist - Maps of Non-Existent Places: Was hoping for more give their live show.
Test of Time - A Place Beyond: Great, borderline formulaic, hardcore.

Swans - To Be King: Continues to push my musical tastes in directions I did not foresee.
Sun Kil Moon - Benji: Dense yet sparse. This is him at his best.
Suicide - Suicide: Punk in spirit if not aesthetics.
Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell: A return to form that oozes sadness.
Spires That in the Sunset Rise - Curse the Traced Bird: Always searching for great post-rock leads to comparisons of GY!BE.
