Heard a lot of stuff this year and every year I say I'll keep up better with the list and order it, but then comes late in the year and I have to back and remember stuff and order it and such. Well, here I am again already in April and haven't kept up since about February. At least I'm consistent?

Saying that Kanye West made your favorite album is pretty much you admitting that you support racism and class inequality.

You're trolling us by supporting Kanye West. He's a terrible person that should make all of us embarrassed to be Americans.

You're a terrible person that should make all of us embarrassed to be Alternanoisians.

See? See how easy that is?

1. Otep

2. Caliban

3. Adelitas Way

4. Erra

5. American Head Charge

Killswitch, good record but Caliban is a better metal core record, I'm sorry.

Gore, didn't like it.

Didnt listen to Filter, Black Stone Cherry, or Devour the Day yet. Don't know when or if Ill get to them.

Oceans of Slumber I really like but only heard a few tracks.

3 Doors Down, not a fan except for the 1st 2 records.

Lacey Sturm, I only thought 2-3 tracks were really good, the rest meh.

Asking Alexandria, not a fan, have no interest.

Basement, somewhat of a disappointment. Only few tracks really stood out to me.

Megadeth, boring, no memorable hooks.

Cavo, decent but not great.

Veer Union, too generic 

Weezer, uh I haven't listen to them since the early 2000's.

@xeph were you all that big on the first Issues album?  Little surprising to see them so high up on your list.

It actually grew on me over time (Tears on the Runway, Disappear, Mad at Myself, basically all the catchy stuff) but there are some baaaaaad songs on it. This new one is much more of an improvement all around, albeit with some less than great moments still.

Haha, I totally agree about the first record, it was such a grower.  I haven't listened to the new one yet but I'm pretty excited to, especially since word seems to be that it's a big step up for them.

I will just say that "Home Soon" is the best song they've done by a good margin

Architects looks strangely out of place on that list.  I still need to listen all the way through on the Stephen album.
