Some modern albums I’ve listened to recently

Band Album Date listened Release date Rating Short Info
Black Veil Brides Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones 20/01/14 08/01/13 ★☆ Props for the guitar, but the repetition of dance-music oriented refrains in each and every song really gets on the nerves.
Dropkick Murphys Signed and Sealed in Blood 20/01/14 14/01/13 ★★ Irish drunkard music mixed with pop elements. A couple of good pieces worth listening to, e.g. Jimmy Collins’ Wake.
Foxygen We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic 21/01/14 22/01/13 ★★☆ Full review coming up!
Zeromancer Bye-Bye Borderline 22/01/14 25/01/13 ★☆ Very pop-like, but they’ve managed to develop some sound of their own. The music is still very bad though.
Voivod Target Earth 23/01/14 22/01/13 ★★★ Nice post-earth theme with challenging, interesting ideas, irregular rhythm patterns. Occasionally awkward singing.
Ludovico Einaudi In a Time Lapse 23/01/14 21/01/13 ★★ Classical music with a poppish sound and poor, non-creative tracks. Decent background music.
