I listen to music and I like to describe things in unique ways. I am proficient and persuasive. Do not agree with my claims off hand; go listen to the music I suggest. You may like it, and if you do not, then you will know why. Most would say I listen to crappy music. On the other side of the coin, I think most listen to crappy music.
This is how we will get to know each other: This is how I would review some of the more influential albums over the past few years.
I am fair to my tastes and to an opinion of what good music sounds like. My opinions are consistent and if you find that you like what I like, then you will probably like the music that I suggest (logic dictates).
All albums are rated out of ten points (named for a theme or feeling the album creates).
The Get Up Kids: Something to Write Home About (1999)——9/10 High School Break-Ups
Bright Eyes: Lifted or… (2002)—–10/10 Collectives
Weakerthans: Reconstruction Site (2003)—–8/10 Dogs and Cats
Weezer: Blue Album (1994)—–10/10 Harvard Dropouts
Alkaline Trio: Maybe I’ll Catch Fire—–9/10 Dogs Shitting Razorblades
Thursday: Full Collapse—–8/10 Car Crashes
Tiger Army: II: Power of Moonlight (2001)—–10/10 Incorporeal Years
The Ataris: Blue Skies, Broken Hearts Next 12 Exits—–9/10 Four Chords
NOFX: Punk In Drublic (1994)—–9/10 Brews
Pixies: Surfer Rosa (1988)—–10/10 Disjointeds
Operation Ivy: Energy (1990)—–10/10 Cautions
OneLineDrawing: The Volunteers (2004)—–8/10 Integrity’s Compromised
The Shins: Chutes Too Narrow (2003)—–8/10 Floaties
This is the short list of albums that I thought my represent a range of what I like to listen to. I’ve liked the Blue Album the longest and Tiger Army is a relatively recent obsession.
My tastes do not evolve quickly, I like to get stuck on certain types of music.
