4.22.2017 | Hopesfall - The Satellite Years: The polarity of the two vocalists is something I always find oft-putting.

Honeywell - Industry: Excellent proto-screamo.

Helmet - Dead To The World: Really solid hard rock album.

The Haunted - The Haunted: Rolling Stones copycats.

Harvest - Transitions: Not as cathartic.

Harvest - Live with a God Complex: Seminal metalcore.

Margo Guryan - Take a Picture: So many singer/songwriters and so little time. Not worth yours.

Green River - Dry As a Bone/Rehab Doll: Mostly forgettable proto-grunge.

Forty Days Rain - Evolution: New remaster sounds great.

Exploding Hearts - Guitar Romantic: Would love to hear more from these '70s punk revivalists.

Dwarves - Blood, Guts, and Pussy: I think I am too old for his.

De La Soul - 3 Feet and Rising: Without context I would have ignored it.

The Dear Hunter - Act 3: The prelude.

The Dear Hunter - Act 2: A needed jump, but too much too quickly.

The Dear Hunter - Act 1: Skeletal compared to more recent records.

Culture Abuse - Day Dream of Nothing/Spray Paint the Dog: The more I hear, the more I like.

CRU - Da Dirty 30: Completely forgettable rap from the late-'90s.

The Count Five - Psychotic Reaction: Perfectly fine psychadelic '60s songs.

Copper - Drag Queen: 8 tracks of emo that are worth revisting.

Convicts - Convicts: Trying far too hard to be hard.

J. Cole - Cole World, The Sideline Story: Uninteresting at every turn.

Coalesce - Functioning On Impatience: Not bad, but too much fuss.

Circle One - Are You Afraid: Always surreal when you discover essential so late in the game.

Chumbawumba - The Singles '82-'87: So great, and so much more than getting back up again.

Christie Front Drive - Stero: More likely to play this than Anthology.

Christie Front Drive - Anthology: Have to contextualize to what emo was in the early '90s.

The Chills - Kaleidoscope World: Worth at least one listen to see if anything sticks.
