Postby markE » 1st Dec 10, 11:25

gaslight anthem - american slang
jimmy eat world - my best theory
feeder - renegades

i could literally list something like 50-odd albums for this, but off the top of my head, ones that have gotten a LOT of spins from me are

Against Me - "White Crosses"
The Flatliners - "Cavalcade"
Hostage Calm - "Hostage Calm"
The Gamits - "Parts"
Off With Their Heads - "In Desolation"
Kvelertak - "Kvelertak"
Ted Leo & The Pharmacists - "The Brutalist Bricks"
Superchunk - "Majesty Shredding"

I was thinking about creating this thread last night.

Foxy Shazam and Volbeat for me, and although it's not cool to like them the new MCR album is getting plenty of spins.

The one that immediately springs to mind for me is the Slash album - I've been really enjoying that. Them Crooked Vultures good too.

I have only bought one album this year. Which is shit of me really.

MCR - whatever it's called.

It's pretty good

i should probably add "At Night We Live" by Far to my earlier list. gave it a spin today and realised it's a properly solid album. i've listened to it a lot this year, but it's only really sunk in today how good it really is.

A few mentions for the new Feeder album here. I kinda lost touch with them after Echo Park. Is it worth getting ahead of 'Comfort In Sound'?

It's not really anything like Comfort in Sound - it's a lot heavier and more punk-ish, but not exactly a return to Swim/Polythene. It's a good, solid album. I think the title track is the best song they've done in years.

that feeder album left me a bit cold tbh. it's not bad, but i couldn't tell you how any of the songs go from memory. i thought silent cry was a lot better and it seemed to get totally overlooked.
