i've listened to a multitude over the past week and a half-

Chevelle- Sci-Fi Crimes, This Type of Thinking, 1/2 of Vena Sera (Good alt-metal)

Sundrifter- Visitations (Good stoner rock album, great instrumentation, vocals too loud and reverby)

The Police- Reggatta De Blanc, (Good riffs and instrumentation, some of the best i've heard. Sting kills it too) Outlandos De Amour (Not as good but still a great performance by everyone)

Beastie Boys- Paul's Boutique (Fantastic album for anyone who digs sample based hip-hop)

Anthrax- Spreading The Disease (Great thrash metal, sounds so ahead of their time)

Taproot- Plead The Fifth (Love the vocals on this one)

Monster Magnet- Powertrip (Good stoner rock as well, the vocalist here shreds beyond the one on Sundrifter tho)

Incubus- Morning View(Alt metal with hip-hop flavor. Mixes well and Boyd's vocals are angelic

Steely Dan- Katy Lied (Full of jazzy riffs and great harmonies)

Tyler, The Creator- Flower Boy (Was snubbed at the grammys, spacey grooves and great features. Tyler great as ever)

Code Orange - Forever

Rocked put this as their #1 album of 2017, and after listening to it I can see why. This being hardcore punk/metalcore it's certainly not for everyone, but if hearing those genre names doesn't immediately turn you off, what we got here is a well-crafted, 35-minute blast of chaos. These guys and gal know how to keep you paying attention, balancing harsh assaults on the ears (and your speakers with all that bass, mmmm it's delicious) with electronic breaks that set an appropriately sinister mood and haunting atmospheric moments --- all laid out in unpredictable ways that nonetheless feel right in retrospect. And the short run time means it's in and out before you can get bored or even acclimated to it. Comparing this to other bands I listen to that accomplish a similarly aggressive sound, will I find this band's approach to dark atmosphere as interesting on the umpteenth listen as I do the underlying complexity of Meshuggah or the melody and unbridled emotion of Dir en Grey? Eh, we'll see. But I really like what this band is trying to do here (their stated goal being to shake up what they see as a currently boring metal scene), and I hope they make the rounds and get the attention they deserve.

Pig Destroyer - Prowler In The Yard

I'm not into a lot of grindcore music, a lot of those bands sound like exact clones of one another and it's boring, bland, and unoriginal. This album however really takes grind into a whole new level. Instead of just being straightup blast beats and distorted guitar, it's actually well-varied in its influences with other genres like thrash and groove metal. Of course it has grind elements like really short songs, fast as fuck instruments, and impossible to understand vocals, and I'm not saying those things aren't good, because I do enjoy some grind, but Pig Destoryer really breaks new boundaries in grindcore with this album. "Starbelly" and "Snuff Film at Eleven" are my favourites off this album. Starbelly is a slower song that examines true love, a not very talked about subject in grindcore. And that's another thing I like about it; the lyrics. Most bands in their genre only care about making the lyrics as nonsensically disgusting as possible which gets boring after hearing it over and over again with the same bland ass instrumentals. Prowler in the Yard's song's lyrics actually have a meaning to them. SFaE is my favourite fast track on the album, because it has an awesome grooviness to it. Parts of it kind of remind me of Pantera. Overall, I'd say this is a really creative grind album, and I'd love to see more stuff like it. 9/10

Boards of Canada - The Campfire Headphase

it was about the same quality of their other albums, except they placed a bit more emphasis on guitars. but it still fit in well with their sound i guess. obviously it's not as great as geogaddi or music has the right to children but i think it's pretty good. chromakey dreamcoat was probably my favorite track off the album. my only gripe with it is the last song, farewell fire. now i think it would have been fine at like 4 or 5 minutes as a normal ambient track, but it takes an extra 3 or 4 minutes to fade out.

Evanescence - Synthesis

Amy Lee swapped out the rock band for an orchestra and electronic touches, and used it to cover the highlight tracks of their previous three albums. Initially upon hearing about the concept I was reminded of Serj Tankian's Imperfect Harmonies (talented singer taking a crack at music with an orchestral backing, so yeah, similar premise). While I can respect the passion behind such a project, I could only hope that Amy's foray into the idea could keep my interest a bit longer than Serj's --- and right off the bat she's got the right idea by drawing people in with a sort of Best of Evanescence track list, with a few new songs sprinkled throughout. Some covers sounded just okay to me (yes, "Bring Me to Life" is here, and yes, it feels weird not hearing WAKE ME UP in the chorus), others translated really well to the new approach. I've off-and-on listened to this band since Fallen was the hot stuff spinning in every edgy junior high kid's CD player, though my favorite album from them is their self-titled third from 2011. Apparently Ms. Lee agrees that it had a lot of their best work, as it numerically has the most representation here, much to my pleasure. If I were to make a pick for best cover, it would definitely go to "End of the Dream." One of the louder songs out of the gates in its original form, here it starts with just low ambience and Amy's voice and slowly builds over time, until we reach a finish that was simply breathtaking to hear the first time. The two original tracks, "Hi-Lo" and "Imperfection," manage to hold up pretty well against everything else. A tidbit about my first listening of this album: for whatever reason the youtube playlist I found put "Imperfection" at the front before everything else, instead of tucked away at the very end. I kinda wish that's how the actual album laid it out, as more than anything else on here that song sold me on the idea of electro-symphonic Evanescence. Dunno what else this band has up their sleeve, but I look forward to seeing if they continue in this direction or return to their previous sound --- perhaps with greater elements of what worked here, such as the electronic edge, incorporated into it. Either way, sign me up.

I've recently listened to 3 albums by Broadcast: The Noise Made By People, Haha Sound, and Tender Buttons.  I'm undoubtedly going to listen to the rest in the near future. They were very atmospheric and charming, and the electronic sounds in Tender Buttons were neat. This is a group a Pink Floyd fan would dig, fitting into the 60s psychedelic rock era of music, though coming out in the early 2000s I believe. I just started listening to Work And Non Work and it sounds so unbelievable. I don't even words for it at the moment, but it's already likely my favorite by them.

You should check out the self-titled debut album by Naked City if you're interested in people doing something creative and original within the grindcore format (although that one isn't exclusively grindcore and is overall more jazz- than metal-oriented).
