09-21-2006, 08:42 PM
Hey everybody what do you think is the best new album?
I would have to say avenged sevenfold-city of evil, atreyu-a deathgrip on yesterday, or godsmack-4

09-21-2006, 08:46 PM
Before I'm beaten to it...Billy Talent II.

What counts as a new album, anyway? I see you put City of Evil, but that came out more than a year ago.

09-21-2006, 08:46 PM
something between 2005-2006

09-21-2006, 08:47 PM
Regina Spektor- begin to hope

09-21-2006, 09:01 PM
Annabel Lee Murders - Violence is the New Sex
An Albatross - Blessphemy (of the Peace-Beast Feastgiver and the Bear-Warp Kumite)
Darker My Love - Darker My Love
Daughters - Hell Songs
Dr. Doctor - Eccentric, Electric
Man Man - Six Demon Bag
Mika Miko - C.Y.S.L.A.B.F.
Mr. Quintron - Swamp Tech
XBXRX - Sixth in Sixes

plus any i forgot

09-21-2006, 09:39 PM
Dr. Doctor - Eccentric, Electric
Are they ever planning on making a full-length album? Or did they already and I just missed it?

Also, I fear I may have actually acquired a taste for Man Man. I've got a few of their songs now and will probably end up getting Six Demon Bag.

Spider Cider is fucking catchy as all hell.

09-21-2006, 09:50 PM
no, they haven't. nor have they played a show in a while... i should emailzz one of them.

09-21-2006, 10:50 PM
Royce Da 5'9 - Independent's Day is by far the best album released in the last year.

09-22-2006, 01:18 AM
Muse's Black Holes and Revelations.

Aside from Supermassive Black Hole and Starlight (2 singles and probably the 2 weakest songs on the album), the entire thing is absolutely brilliant.

09-22-2006, 04:58 AM
Ignite - Our Darkes Days

Manic Subsidal Boy
09-22-2006, 05:26 AM
A Matter Of Life And Death

All About Eve
09-22-2006, 06:17 AM
I second Muse.

09-22-2006, 06:31 AM
I haven't really gotten any albums that were released in the past year aside from AFI - Decemberunderground, and that was alright. I think it could have been alot better than what it was, though. I also really like The Mars Volta's Amputechture, but I don't officially own that.

I plan on getting the new Modest Mouse when it comes out, though. December 19th.

09-22-2006, 06:42 AM
Muse's Black Holes and Revelations.

Aside from Supermassive Black Hole and Starlight (2 singles and probably the 2 weakest songs on the album), the entire thing is absolutely brilliant.

I totally second that.

Come out and smash'em up!
09-22-2006, 07:51 AM
SOAD - hypnotize and Mezmerize
Children of bodom - Are you dead yet
Slayer - christ illusion
Arch enemy - Doomsday machine
Strapping young lad - the new black

09-22-2006, 08:02 AM
Less Than Jake - In With The Out Crowd

09-22-2006, 09:10 AM
Iron Maiden - A Matter of Life and Death

09-22-2006, 10:06 AM
Muse Black Holes & Revelations for me probably, although I need to listen to Blood Mountain by Mastodon again to see if i like it more or not. I also anticipate Beck's new album will be better.

09-22-2006, 11:02 AM
I 5th Muse - Black Holes & Revelations, and 2nd Billy Talent - Billy Talent II

Nineteen Seventy Nine
09-22-2006, 11:53 AM
I third Billy Talent II.
On a totally different level than the above album: Wolfmother and Riverboat Gamblers weren't that bad.

Tigger Army
09-22-2006, 12:00 PM
Ignite - Our Darkes Days

I second that

09-23-2006, 01:01 PM
Actually if you include late 2005, Madonna's Confessions on a Dance Floor isn't too bad.

09-23-2006, 01:14 PM
Patent Pending by Heavens. I've had it on repeat since I got it.

I do seventh Muse though.

All About Eve

I'm surprised no one's mentioned Stadium Arcadium.

09-23-2006, 01:34 PM
That's because Stadium Arcadium got super old after like a month. I never listen to any songs off of it unless they're on the radio or shuffle turns them on.

My vote, I guess, goes to either Streetlight Manifesto's Keasbey Nights pt. 2 or Dog Fashion Disco's Adultery. Not that any of you have heard the second one.

09-23-2006, 01:35 PM
Does Keasbey Nights really count? I mean, it was performed in 2006, but it was originally written in 1998.

09-23-2006, 01:54 PM
Considering the other choices other people made, I sure as hell HOPE that Keasbey Nights counts.

09-23-2006, 01:58 PM
Point taken. I think it should count.

I would also like to nominate Anti-Flag's For Blood and Empire. I know a lot of people don't like AF, but FBAE is their best album since 2001's Underground Network.

09-23-2006, 02:10 PM
I'm surprised no one's mentioned Stadium Arcadium.
that's because it was one of RHCP's worst albums :(

someone mentioned the SOAD albums... I think mezmerize was damn good, but I was slightly disappointed in hypnotize.

09-23-2006, 02:11 PM
it was one of RHCP's worst albums :(
Which is exactly why it was so damn popular.

09-23-2006, 02:33 PM
it really wasn't that popular for being good... the only reasons it got so much attention were because the band hyped it SOOO much, the crap with tom petty, and the success of "dani california". Plus, every RHCP album gets tons of attention.

09-23-2006, 02:37 PM
From what I heard, this got the most attention out of any of 'em.

09-23-2006, 02:46 PM
how are you defining attention? album sales? ratings? for ratings, californication, bloodsugarsexmagik, and by the way all got overall higher ratings than stadium arcadium. BSSM sold more copies in the US alone (7 million in the US) than stadium arcadium has sold worldwide (5 million worldwide), and californication is the band's best seller (over 15 million copies worldwide).

I just don't see how you're defining "attention", I guess.

09-23-2006, 02:49 PM
Maybe I am wrong about the attention compared to the other albums. It could be that this is the first album where I'm old enough to realize how overplayed it is. Even if the others were more or less overplayed than SA, I wouldn't know about it.

09-23-2006, 03:29 PM
that's probably it. I remember californication being on the freakin' NEWS cause of its popularity. It was much bigger than this album, and got a lot of people into RHCP... most of the band's fans came from either BSSM or cali.

09-23-2006, 04:17 PM
I second that

and that's why the Dutch are the smartest people on this fucking planet;)

09-23-2006, 05:09 PM
I loved Stadium Arcadium when I first got it. Now I can't listen to it without being bored to death.

As far as new albums, Sonic Youth's newest one, Rather Ripped, is pretty good. Quite possibly their best album in 10 years.

09-23-2006, 05:21 PM
I think I've listened to Stadium Arcadium all the way through maybe once, ever. But that doesn't mean it's a bad album, just a ricockulously long one. I'll be damned if I'm gonna listen to the same album for one twelfth of my day.

But I really don't like most of Jupiter. "Charlie," "Wet Sand," and "Torture Me" are all brilliant. The rest of the stuff really struck me as trying to fit into some specific mold, like funky or classic-rock-ish or whatever.

Mars is good almost all the way through. I think a lot of people who don't like the album just got burned out by Jupiter and maybe never have really paid much attention when listening to Mars.

09-23-2006, 07:04 PM
Our Darkest Days by Ignite or City of Evil by A7X

09-23-2006, 08:09 PM
My Favorite ones of this year.

Senior Discount: There Were Four Who Tried
Bouncing Souls: The Gold Record
NOFX: Wolves In Wolves Clothing
and maybe Guttermouth's SHAVE THE PLANET.

those are probably my favorites so far this year.

09-23-2006, 08:40 PM
Lately I'm super impressed by:

Regina Spektor- Begin to Hope

Barenaked Ladies Are Me

Sister Hazel- Absolutely

In that order.

All About Eve
09-23-2006, 09:00 PM
Barenaked Ladies have a new song?! You must send it to me!

09-23-2006, 09:08 PM
New album! I haven't bought it yet, but I dled it. It's really good! I seriously love how their music has matured so much over the past like 13 years, yet they've kept their very distinct sound and style.

Plus, Kevin and Jim each have a song where they sing the lead vocals. And Jim's is actually good, unlike on "born on a pirate ship". :)

All About Eve
09-23-2006, 09:54 PM
Excellent! I'm going to be downloading that. BNL = <3.

09-24-2006, 03:47 AM
Our Darkest Days by Ignite

wow more smart people around here;)
