What is the last record that you listened for the first time and you thought "holy shit this is good!"? Seriously blew your mind. I've discovered a lot of great bands and albums through threads like this.

My last record that blew my mind must have been City Shock by the band Social Circkle.

Most recently, Bad Religion's "Dissent of Man." I was so ready to hate on that album when I first heard Resist Stance, but when I listened to the whole thing together after it came out, I did a complete 180. I was not prepared for a full recovery like that :cool:

Before that, I'd have to say Rammstein's Sehnsucht. Most Rammstein fans tell me that this is their most "popular" (i.e. diluted and uninspired) album, and since it's the only one I own I can't really confirm or deny that, but for what it is, it's not something I'm used to listening to. I was really uncomfortable buying it (got it on recommendation from a friend who lives in Austria), and I was ready for some kind of puke-metal garbage, but when I popped it in, I was pretty surprised --- it's like heavy metal, but with really kickass beats and a crazy synth guy instead of a "lead guitarist." An interesting twist on a diluted genre, IMO.

Before that? Collective Soul started something good with their "Rabbit" S/T album a year or so ago (I heard the first track and thought, "They're back!"), but the rest of that album was kinda meh.

I dunno if it counts as an "album" per se, but the Higurashi/When They Cry soundtrack (by Kenji Kawai) was pretty fuckin' grand. It's so simple yet so creepy. But of course my opinion of it is horribly biased thanks to how atmospheric the show was :D I still can't listen to the title track without getting Tha Willies.

I've posted most of these comments in the "Best album of the year so far?" thread, but i'll accumulate them here for convenience.

Some stuff that i've been listening too the past couple weeks:

Cheap Girls - My Roaring 20s

If you're in your early 20s, and feeling pretty apathetic, this will be the soundtrack to your life. Sonically, they're similar to 90s power pop, but with more of a punk tinge.

Song: Ft. Lauderdale
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSqnl7ml2Fo

Two Cow Garage - Sweet Saint Me

Alt-Country/Cowpunk: think if Lucero played just a little bit faster. Such good stuff.

Song: Sally I've Been Shot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiIrx2H_iPE

Red City Radio - The Dangers of Standing Still

Melodic punk: think of Hot Water Music meets Dillinger Four

Song: Spinning In Circles is a Gateway Drug
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPIKCLzXn7w

Screeching Weasel - First World Manifesto

One of my favorites of the year: Ben Weasel manages to keep his "ramonescore" sound going after so many years.

Song: Follow Your leaders
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSnpRkL0hwg

Heartsounds - Until We Surrender
Awesome stuff, reminds me a bit of A Wilhelm Scream at times.

Song: Until We Surrender
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyB7Ln25CyM

LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening

I hate to use the phrase: but think "dance punk".

Song: I Can Change
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW8FKkVnqng



Some stuff from last year that people need to be aware of:



The Menzingers - Chamberlian Waits

Quite possibly my favorite album of last year. I sort of see them as the "new" Against Me!: melodic punk, with dueling vocals.

Song: Time Tables http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCN1azAvx10

Off With Their Heads - In Desolation

So catchy yet so aggressive: this record will kick you in your teeth.

Song: Their Own Medicine
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9eQNb7U8Pg

Gaslight Anthem - 59 Sound

Punk meets the soul of 50s rock and roll.

Song: The '59 Sound www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOBb13yDnzo

That record blew your mind? First time I listened to it, it felt pretty "meh". Took some time for me to be able to say it is an okay album, I still find it a not great album. It could have something to do with me expecting an old Against Me!-esque record.

You thought Gaslight Anthem was gonna be like Against Me!?
When I bought "Very Emergency" by The Promise Ring, I was pretty obsessed with it for a while, soooo good! I think the last one to do that for me was the newest Trap Them album Darker Handcraft. One of the heaviest fucking albums I've heard in a while. Face punching awesomeness.

I love everything about that record: the way it just oozes Americana, the songs about girls named maria and guys with sailor tattoos... understandable that they may not click with you, but they're worth a second chance.

And yeah, they're absolutely nothing like Against Me! (especially old AM! stuff); if I was to make a comparison to anybody, it'd be Bruce Springsteen. Gaslight's earlier stuff is a little more "punk" orientated: 59 Sound is their take on soul/blues, and their latest American Slang is a more straight ahead rock album.

Nightstick Justice' EP called "Claustrophobic". It's fucking amazing. One of the few hardcore punk records that has a bit longer songs than less-than-one-minute songs.

I seldom listen to new albums because there's always such a huge backlog of older albums that I have yet to hear.

With that in mind, I just discovered Alligator by The National and I just can't stop listening to it. I know that it's sometimes considered their weakest album and almost universally considered to be weaker than Boxer, but I just flat-out disagree. Boxer has some great songs on it but I can't listen to it from start to finish at all.

On Alligator, I feel as though the songs would even be good with no vocals at all. The drums and guitar sound like drums and guitar, in ways that made me realize that I had almost forgotten what they are supposed to sound like. The production is flawless- it's got a really clear quality, no reverb, nothing sounds clouded or masked at all. And the lyrics are astonishing in that they're often ridiculous or even grotesque, yet at the same time, on some level, you know exactly what he's talking about.

see i don't understand statements like that.... there will always be old music out there, but at the same time the stuff that's new now will just be old within the next few years, get a little of both each time you go and pick up music. One new thing, one old. That way you're always up on things. and a lotta old shit sucks just as much as new shit, but since it's old people seem to have this big aura around it.

I fail to see how I sounded like I have a big aura around old music, but fine, I'll explain a little more. I don't give a shit about "staying up on things," so I don't discriminate between old and new. The reason I usually wind up with older albums is because by the time I'm ready to get music, I'm just more curious about the stuff that I've heard a lot about. In other words, I'm more interested in picking up something I've been hearing about for 3 years than something I've been hearing about for 3 days.

I fucking love Alligator if only because it feels more like a band just sitting in a room somewhere playing music, whereas Boxer feels a little too polished sometimes in comparison. I mean I absolutely love both albums, but I prefer Alligator just a tiny bit more.

I get what he's saying. I'm someone who just kind of devours music and is constantly checking something else out, and sometimes it gets overwhelming. Last year I made it a goal to really go through the back catalogues of bands I like but haven't heard a lot of stuff, and I found it to be a lot more rewarding than just picking up a ton of new stuff. Like, I've always loved the 3 Flaming Lips albums I knew, but there are like 5-6 more that I had never heard. So last year instead of constantly consuming new music, I checked out those albums and got really deep into them, listening to nothing else for a month or so and just lived inside them. That's hard to do with new releases sometimes because there's this pressure to keep consuming new releases in order to keep up with the times, but sometimes that turns music into a homework assignment instead of an immersive experience like it should be.

Suiticide by Pour Habit. I had heard a couple of song by the band years ago and thought that it was just another shitty pop-punk band from Fat Wreck, but then I stumbled upon the song "Zion" two weeks ago and I fucking loved it, so I had to buy the album. The album amazed me! I feel they sound like Offspring on speed. "Zion" is such a great song, and I like nearly all the others as well.

I do hate to throw around the word "perfect", especially with albums that are incredibly new. But let's just say that every other band that's planning on releasing a record this year is going to have to work pretty damn hard to top this. This album seems to have a notable Gaslight Anthem influence, especially in the lyrics (love songs to waitresses, american muscle cars and nostalgically looking back on youth).

The last record to totally blow my mind was Converge's Jane Doe.

I was really hesitant to listen to it because of the way that Converge fans are... violent bros, basically. But this album is just so fucking great. It's a sad album, it's an aggressive album, it's a metal album, it's a punk album. The lyrics are impressive, but the vocal delivery is what sells them. I don't even think he says most of the words that he wrote.

http://www.culturebully.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/converge-jane-doe.jpg

A few songs:
Concubine (the first song on the record, just so mindblowingly intense): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIB9Cai5kZ4&feature=fvst
Distance And Meaning (this song gets so brutal at 0:58ish): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXUzxbC6qDg

Totally agree with Jane Doe, I gotta grab more of their stuff.

I think the last one to really blow my mind was Only in Dreams by Dum Dum Girls. Such catchy songs, just enough melody and noise to balance eachother out to give it a real rich sound. Then Dee Dee's voice is just so pretty, I want her to sing to me all day, she wouldn't even need to sing words most of the time. They were awesome last night at the paradise to.

These dudes never disappoint: it's a pity they often get overlooked compared to their fellow "celtic" punk peers, especially since they've been around a lot longer than them. Like their last record, this one is very clean and has a big pop influence, but it suits the songs perfectly. And the lyrics are scattered with obscure Canadian historical references, so what's not to love?

Not much to say about this one other than that it just hits me at a deeper level than most music does these days. Post-rockish but also folk-ish and just generally good, soft, nature-y music. Like if the most beautiful, lush rainforest, the morning after a night storm, were compressed into sound - this would be it.

Tim Armstrong - A Poet's Life.

It blew me away because I did not think Tim Armstrong was capable of making music of this calibre. I really don't like the new Rancid, and the old Rancid is nothing more than okay. I have always steered away from this record because I thought it was some soft Rancid music without Matt Freeman and Lars Frederiksen singing (Matt Freeman is the best vocalist in Rancid, why can't he sing more often like he used to in Rancid 1993?). But this doesn't sound like Rancid at all.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a perfect record. Tim still sings very annoyingly, and nearly all of the lyrics are too simple for me and even some times dumb. Not all the songs are good either, but what blew me away is that he single-handedly managed to make a decent record.

Probably Marina and the Diamonds - Electra Heart

Upon first listen to some of her songs, she just seemed to be some enjoyable, decent pop. But as I listened to Electra Heart all the way through, and then started watching the music videos in sequence, I started to grasp the concept of the album, which is an interesting one. The combination of the concept, her lyrics, and the diversity of song styles results in one of my favorite albums in quite some time. She's incredibly talented - plus she plays piano and does acoustic versions of her songs. One of those rare pop singers who's a real musician.

Seriously, I'm loving this album. Probably one of the best ones I've heard so far this year. He stepped up his beat making, the story is pretty interesting. Him and the rest of the OF crew stepped up their rhymes, and then of course there's the whole thing with both Pharrel and Erika Badu on there which is pretty fucking cool.
