You are not Ben Folds. Stop trying to be.
Between the Buried and Me - Colors
Experimental is not cool.
Baroness - The Red Album
Why does hippie music go on foreeeeeveeer. So damn tedious.
The Bled - Silent Treatment
ALBUM OF THE YEAR. Well no, probably not, but it's up there.
Yes, I am aware it is October. No, I do not care.
Vanessa Carlton - Heroes and Thieves
Download "Hands on Me". Listen to it five times. Delete.
Hurt - Vol. II
Hurt is really going at being really soft and slow and then very suddenly rocking your face off.
Arch Enemy - Rise of the Tyrant
Very cool. Are they from Europe? I don't know, but they're good.
Drop Dead Gorgeous - Worse Than a Fairy Tale
ALBUM OF THE YEAR. Well, no, I guess this isn't album of the year, either. But it's good too.
Thousand Foot Krutch - The Flame in All of Us
I like TFK a lot more when they don't try to be hard rock, because they're not. They don't try so hard here, and it's a good thing.
Hot Hot Heat - Happiness LTD.
I am so glad I'm not a fan of this album. I don't think I could look myself in the mirror if I liked even one song, ok, maybe two songs. Alright, three songs. No more than three songs.
Sixx AM - The Heroine Diaries
Do you like their song on the radio? Good. Listen to it and don't bother with the rest of their garbage.
The Black Dhalia Murder - Nocturnal
I wish I liked hardcore more than I do, because then I would like this album more than I do.
Every Time I Die - The Big Dirty
You SUCK! You suckdiddly-uck, Flanders! Why do people like you?
The Forecast - In the Shadow of Two Gunman
ALBUM OF THE YEAR. Seriously, I mean it this time. Totally awesome. This really is the album of the year (in a six-way tie with In This Moment, Drop Dead Gorgeous, The Bled, From Autumn to Ashes and The Devil Wears Prada and probably many more)
