Slipknot - Iowa: Great metal album, last track aside.

Slipknot - Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat: Too much nu going on.

Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool: Really strong, has a Sigur Ros vibe going on.

Miracle Legion - Portrait Of A Damaged Family: I had a lovely time.

LUH - Spiritual Songs: The desperation in the vocal delivery will keep me coming back for more.

Islands - Taste: Initially not as good, but I remember being wrong about Digital Ash, too.

Islands - Should I Remain Here At Sea: Yes, if further albums sound this good.

PJ Harvey - The Hope Six: Pulling in a vast array of influences makes for a fairly compelling album.

Hallelujah The Hills - A Band Is Something: Some great songs here, but it falls flat as an album.

Flatbush Zombies - 3001- A Laced Odyssey: A lot of hype, but little to back it up.

Drake - Views: I just do not care.

Death Grips - Bottomless Pit: Almost had me thinking their run was over, but the second half was strong.

Dalek - Abandoned Language: Have to give them credit for trying to push the genre forward.

Burn - ...From The Ashes: Still trying to get into them with the same fervor as everyone else.

boysetsfire - After The Eulogy: This is a really great melodic/hardcore/metal album.

boysetsfire - The Day The Sun Went Out: Not really sure who they are yet.

Beyonce - Lemonade: Have I been missing out or is this her first really good album?
