What do you guys think the best album of the last two years was. And be honest, even if it's something that you're guilty about.

Interesting, interesting. Some good thangs on that list. Although there's one recurring band that I can't stand, but I won't mention who. Alot of love for Green Day, that's good. They're great guys and all that success couldn't have happened to nicer people. Billy even let Dave and I use his house to write some new songs in for this upcoming record.

Any upcoming albums people are excited for? Saves the Day? Muse? Morrissey? Slayer? Radiohead?

Can't wait for these.

Two years? Too far back to remember....but a recent one would be She Wants Revenge.

It came out in January, I've never listened to a CD so many times in my life.

Hotdog said...

Hard to pick.

A few are:
"Frances the Mute" by The Mars Volta
"Matter + Form" by VNV Nation
"Playing the Angel" by Depeche Mode
"Catch for Us the Foxes" by mewithoutYou

Major Tom. said...

there are so many to choose from. i would go with either one of the Bright Eyes albums, "Digital Ash In A Digital Urn" and "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning," or Elliott Smith's "From A Basement On A Hill." also, The Weakerthans "Reconstruction SIte" is a really good album. and Feist's "Let It Die." i dont think there is any way to choose just one.

Pretty Pistol said...

"A Fever You Can't sweat out" By Panic! At The Disco... hands down the best i've heard in a while...

Anonymous said...

I have two, first being Cafe Tacuba's (great mexican folk rock, semi electronic band) Un viaje, which is a collection of all their hits live. And Antics by Interpol(although it was almost three years ago), I don't think that there are many bands out there with as much integrity and talent as Interpol, so its very refreshing to hear their music on the radio and just in general. Plus, Public Pervert is not only one of the greatest songs, it also has one of the best song titles. And I am not ashamed to still listen to the Spice Girls, although that was more than two years ago, but I thought I'd just put that out there.

Tainted Love said...

Huzzah.
Got a comment in the top 5.
I guess that's why you get for living on the East Coast.
Anyways...
I must say I thorougly enjoyed Franz Ferdinand's self titled album.
There haven't been too many good albums out.
Lots of older bands have come out with new CDs such as (The Cure, New Order, Depeche Mode, NIN) and even though those are four of my favorite five bands ever I must say they do not compare to their older material.

Green Day
"American Idiot."
i really think it set a new bar
but, i also have no doubt that
AFI can surpass it.
thanx for asking...D.

hannah said...

Bleeding Through - The Truth. I'm so proud of them ♥

stella said...

Protest the Hero - "Kezia." People have different opinions of them, but I love them. Gotta represent Canada.
Comeback Kid - "Wake the Dead"
Tiger Army - "Tiger Army III: Ghost Tigers Rise"...it's almost been a full two years since it was released.

tricky questions mr jade...id have to say neon nights electric lives and good apollo yada yada yada...and lindsey lohans nip slip.

veiled_static said...

The Dresden Dolls, self-titled album; HelloGoodbye's EP.
The Dolls some how meld genres/themes together that haven't quite been explored. Musically/lyrically, I think they're in a legue all their own. HGB is completely happy-go-lucky pop. Makes you think of sunny afternoons at the beach, flipflops, and laughing til your stomach hurts with friends. They always put a smile on my face.

Hope you had a marvalous (sp?) monday, and that your week will be even better!

"The Beekeeper" by Tori Amos

I can never get sick of that band.

slyabney said...

Two Albums

Muse - Absolution
Modern Life is War - Witness

Two EPs
I am Ghost - We are Searching
Take the Crown - Let the Games Begin

Lori said...

"Get Behind Me Satan" blew me away. I like "American Idiot" too.

shanagdi said...

This is really, really difficult. Most of the cds I've purchased in the past two years have been replacements for the albums I left in PA. I'm also restricted in listening to certain cds due to environmental issues. I also tend to buy cds and not listen to them completely for several months until the mood is right. I have strange habits.

I think my main answers would be Green Day's "American Idiot" which I think is genius and Interpol "Antics" which I find to be extremely sexy. I was late in enjoying them both.

Two other cds I listen to more than my above choices are The Explosion's "Black Tape" and The Static Age's "Neon Nights Electric Lives."

xine said...

The Dresden Dolls (Self-titled)
Munly and the Lee Lewis Harlots (Self-Titled)

Supreme General of Evil said...

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" soundtrack. Track number seven, 'A Window to the Past' is so beautiful.

Harry Potter rocks face.

Snape owns me. Alan Rickman's voice is a treat for the ears... aural sex, you know? :sighs:

Anonymous said...

Definately either Bleeding Through's The Truth, or Depeche Mode's Playing The Angel.

Pink rabbits said...

I'd say:

Sigur Ros - Takk
Green Day - American Idiot

Lilith said...

um.. oh god thats a hard one. I forget what came out when so I'll just do fav of the past year :P
I would have to say Opeth - Ghost Reveries.
I liked SOAD - Hypnotise too but it could never be as good as toxicity so... i stick with opeth :D

xxxx

p.s I was just reading everyone elses comments and noticed Brand New. Deja Entendu is a brilliant album.

Autumn said...

Ah, i'm a bit of a retard when it comes to buying new albums, most of the stuff I buy comes from le eighties. ):

Oh, oh, And The Glass Handed Kites by Mew is rather special. I had high expectations for Crimes by Blood Brothers and that's quiiiiite good, but not as good as Piano Island. Oh, Miss Machine too. (:

falconer said...

Room on Fire - The Strokes even though it was technically 2 years and 4 months ago.

Melanie said...

That's a hard one. Hmm...
Tori Amos and the Cure.

Major Tom. said...

i also want to say Outkast's "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below" but i think that was over two years ago. you all know that was a good album.

ThoughtsHeldCaptive said...

Muse - Absolution

FragileLeaf said...

Coheed And Cambria - Good Apolo I'm Burning Star IV ,Volume I , From Fear Through The Eyes Of Madness

and

Silverstein - Discovering the waterfront

Crosses said...

I dunno man... I'm really looking forward to The Scare's release. That's going to rule hard.

Elizabeth said...

two years ago ....I don't know probably ''You are the Quarry''(Morrissey) was the best album.
anyway now I'm listening the new In Flames ''Come Clarity'' is a beatiful work , probably the best In Flames work.
If you like metal you should listen this band ,is probably one of the best bands in the world .

kathy said...

All We Need Is Silence by Slut.

volare said...

from Jan '04 to Jan '06?
oof.
even if you're embarrassed about it, you said? okay.

== U2's new one. Yeah I said it. I had so much dread that it was going to suck. I fell in love with them in 1984, til I got pissed and walked away in '93, hated them from then til 2002 when the William Orbit mix of Electrical Storm bit me, then I held my breath til HTDAAB came out. It's not -their- best album; they left that behind in the 80s. But in the last two years' crop of records it's a standout. Watching them quietly tearing the music industry down from the inside out is even better.

== Lostprophets 'Start Something'.
Bad idea to drive to this one. Very bad. The energy is what grabs me.. Yes there's a lull or two, but don't get caught bent over sniffing daisies because there's an 18 wheeler round the next bend coming to flatten your ass.

== Ascension of the Watchers 'Iconoclast' EP.

FearFactory and Prong members' Burton C. Bell and John Bechdel's side project. The side of Burt's voice we always knew was there but couldn't be fully freed on FF albums. Fucking gorgeous stuff, haunting and ethereal on some tracks and joyous on others.

horrorstruck said...

ohwell.. *thinks*

Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel
The Boy Least Likely To - The Best Party Ever
The Dreamside - Spin Moon Magic
NIN - With_Teeth

gaah, I give up. this is too hard. >_<

"Playing The Angel" by Depeche Mode
Both "Rosenrot" and "Reise, Reise" by Rammstein
"Inhuman Rampage" by DragonForce
"Want Two" by Rufus Wainwright

Anonymous said...

Let's see... I'm going to have to think about this...

Alkaline Trio's Crimson- This album got me into this band and I really really love it.

I loved System of a Down's Hypnotise / Mezmerise, although not as good as some of their albums they're still fantastic

Miss Machine by Dillinger Escape Plan is an awesome album, but I can't remember when that came out... I think it was 04 sometime?

And I would have to include Green Day's American Idiot. I'm not a huge fan of pop punk, but this album is (whatever anyone says) very mature and well written. It reached so many people on so many levels and its success definately reflects the work Green Day have put in for the last howevermanyyears. I completely disagree with people who label the band as sell-outs for this album just because it got them popular, because I think it definately shows them maturing and I for one prefer many songs on it to ,uch of their previous work.

Those are a few albums that really stand out... I'm sure there's more I haven't mentioned!

Anonymous said...

Green Day - American Idiot

Whatsername is one of the best songs the band has ever written.

Miss Murderess said...

Only one? maan, that's hard to choose.

Violet - The Birthday Massacre, that's definitely one.
Nymphetamine - Cradle of Filth. (You gotta love 'em)
IV - To Die For
Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken by Hammerfall it's a good one too.

I shall stop now or i'll write two screens of cds

Macabre Gacy said...

Wow, really? Well there were a few I liked... someone them I don't know if they came out in last two years... but here it goes...

"Nymphetamine" by Cradle of Filth
"Doomsday Machine" by Arch Enemy
"American Idiot" by Greenday
"Ashes of the wake" by Lamb of God
"Dark Age" by Soulfly
"Ascendancy" by trivium

Want Two by Rufus Wainwright. Hands. Down. He's amazing. Absolutely amazing. There are no words to describe his genius. I adore him.

I also loved:

Death Cab for Cutie - Plans
Tsunami Bomb - The Definitive Act

Elliott Smith // From a Basement On the HIll.

But I dont know...Has Ween released an album in the last two years? And that Dylan Live Bootleg Series 6 was released about a year ago...then Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain was reissued...I don't know. This is hard.

She Wants Revenge- Self titled
Low- The Great Destroyer
Interpol- Antics
The Faint- Wet From Birth

I'll cheat a little and add the live recording of the DCD show I saw in Chicago. Not technically a release but... *shrug*

I think it would be easier to stab myself in the eye than choose between these.

Girls Don't Cry said...

Bleeding Through - The Truth

They've finally made it. -girly fan squeak-

livvy said...

Umm.... first out of my mouth is Franz Ferdinand... I *think* their debut came out in 2004 in the US. And I'm in love with Arctic Monkeys. Very in love.

Um... and I have enjoyed cds by Jack's Mannequin and the John Mayer Trio as well.

You asked for honesty. You got it.

[but not as much as she loves jade puget]

The Timid Wild One said...

I don't think it's the best, but I liked From Under the Cork Tree by Fall Out Boy. I recently lost respect for them because the bassist is a complete asshole.

With_Teeth by Nine Inch Nails
or Deja Entendu by Brand New.

And if you don't like those, you should listen to Eisley's track "Marvelous Things". <3<3<3
Or something by Tori Amos. Because that's my girly side.

Either...
Franz Ferdinand, Hellogoodbye's EP or Green Day's American Idiot.

i hate to sound like everyone else, but green day...although they are one of my favorite bands, i kinda felt like they were so good that the other bands that were more underground never got a chance so my other pick would have to be from first to last-my teenage angst has a body count.

Hmmm ... I'm not sure this came out in the last two years but I have to say The Dresden Dolls self titled album. It is my favorite.

You'll Rebel to Anything - MSI

Hells yeah

A Girl with Broken Dreams said...

Um...that one. and that other one. I can't remember the last two years...and there are a lot of good albums...um..honestly? I'll go with the first one I think of and that I've been listening to lately and that would be "Once" by Nightwish. It's opera and metal and orchestral music and I can analyze the video for 'Nemo' and print off screen caps and let it take up most of the twenty or so pages of process journal i have left to do by thursday...since i still need to do all of the research and write my personal statement. I swear this project wasn't assigned in september...

Love U2's "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb."

joey said...

Either "Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness" by Coheed and Cambria or "American Idiot" by Green Day.

some chick said...

Wow. For every really good album someone has said here, there is something completely awful. (My opinion, obviously)

Uh..there are tons, but lets go with

Devils Playground - Billy Idol

Skylar said...

This is my list. I like The Bravery's the most:

self-titled by The Bravery
"This Type Of Thinking Could Do Us In" by Chevelle
"aMOTION" (I prefer this than "eMOTIVE") by A Perfect Circle
self titled by Kasabian
"Now Here Is Nowhere" by Secret Machine

Nicholas said...

Thrice - Vheissu
Coheed - Vol 4
Dredg - Catch Without Arms
BTBAM - Alaska
MewithoutYou - Catch for Us the Foxes

ArashiSakura said...

"A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" by Panic! At this Disco
"With Teeth" by Nine Inch Nails

Panic! At the Disco is honestly one of the best new bands I've heard. And Nine Inch Nails has been one of my favorites for a while...

GreatView said...

The last TWO years? Hm.I don't really listen to all that much new music... I'll say... ummm...

Stand up - Dave Matthews Band
Lost Dogs - Pearl Jam (Yeah I know it's 3 years old.. whatev buddy!)

Gizmo said...

Sex, Love, and Rock n Roll~Social Distortion

JadeyX said...

...I'm gonna go ahead and say Speak For Yourself by Imogen Heap because I don't know if Placebo's Sleeping With Ghosts counts... too far back.

JadeyX said...

I forgot!!! I read back on other's entries, and I totally forgot Brand New's Deja Entendu!!! And Interpol's Antics was a very good CD.

Lori said...

Two years is a long time!
I don't know if these two are the best but they're the ones I'm listening the most to:
M+F~VNV
&
"The Great Destroyer"~LOW

Kate said...

I'd say "Dark Light" By HIM would have to be one of my picks but of course I'm still into my Misfits from the 80's.

Anonymous said...

"Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" By My Chemical Romance. Seriously, that's the only other CD to about a million times next to "Sing the Sorrow."

girlisgrey said...

Times Of Romance by The Lovemakers.

the singer told me you guys practiced near them and Davey is a fan!

true?

Heathen said...

I don't know. At all. I guess I'll just say anything released by Sufjan Stevens in the past two years.

Natalie said...

As for new album releases, I'm excited about Lacuna Coil's Karmacode.

...and obviously a new AFI cd. Nothing's going to make me happier than when that comes out. :D

<3

Hotdog said...

Upcoming ones I'm excited for? Let's see...

The Cure
Blur
Angels & Airwaves
The Shins
The Vines
The Mars Volta
Tiger Army
AFI!

What reoccuring band was it that you can't stand? You can't just say something like that and not tell us who... it's not fair.

Bandito said...

Muse is righteous, Slayer...frightens me. I've never actually heard Slayer but I always see it written in places all over my school. Seems unusual.

I think I'll look through these to try to guess what you can't stand.

Luna said...

Wow..two year back. Thats hard to remember.

Interpol "Antics"
Green Day "American Idiot"
The Cure "The Cure"
Morgan "Seasons Expire"

I can't narrow it down between those four. As for upcoming albums, besides yours, I would have to say definitely

Morrissey
Thursday
Goo Goo Dolls

Much love,
Luna

Macabre Gacy said...

LOL! very excited about the new AFI album, if you know what I mean. Them AFI guys are very good at writing songs. Very touchy, maybe you should get their upcomming album, i'll tell you when it's coming out, maybe you'll tell me if you know before [WINK]. haha. COme to my blog, comment me. :). Holla back at ya boy!

Rock on and Peace out\m/

Supreme General of Evil said...

"Any upcoming albums people are excited for?"

..... AFI's new album!!! ::flails arms excitedly::

Oh yeah, and as for great albums that came out in the past two years, Ed in the Refridgerators "Get Excommunicated!" is awesome (I forgot to mention them earlier). I've not listened to the entire album yet, but all of the songs that I have listened to make me so very happy. You should check out their MySpace page... those boys are so funny.

Macabre Gacy said...

Do you like...Cradle of filth? Maybe that's the recurring and that you don't like! TELL ME 'cause Cradle of Filth are my Second favorte after AFI... I gots like all the cds, shirts and them dvds. Don't hate on Cradle of Filth, aiiiight?

Rock on and Peace out\m/

technologic said...

Muse! Definitely. I'm extremely excited about that.

Oh, and you guys of course. I seriously cannot wait until you release the new album. Hurry it up!! <3

rebecca said...

2 years is a long time, but the newest cd to come out in that time that I listen to the most is Depeche Mode - Playing The Angel. I think it's awesome, I don't get tired of it for some reason.

And not to seem like a kiss ass, but I'm really looking forward to the new AFI cd. HURRY UP!!!

<3 xoxo

Trent sucks at life said...

Waiting for some new AFI. :)
I don't know of any other band that I listen to that is coming out with a new album this year.

The Mars Volta - Frances the Mute
The Arcade Fire - Funeral
Placebo - Once more with feeling

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

Muse definately. Supposed to be out in May. AFI's of course. Radiohead's new one should kick ass. And The Cure's new one should hit pretty soon.

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

For upcoming cd's that is. <3

well i'm going to throw in some more...

"Devils" by The 69 Eyes...
"Dark Light" by HIM...
"Hide From The Sun" by The Rasmus...
"Rakkautta Ja Piikkilankaa" by Uniklubi(in LOVE with them)

all Finnish bands...what does that tell you? and don't listen to Uniklubi unless you're REALLY open minded when it comes to music... none of it is in english... but the songs are still amazing....

and cds i'm looking forward to...

AFI...

and Less Than Jake...which comes out this month i believe

volare said...

Albums excited for?

Other than yanno, this one record from this one band from California that likes to drive us bananas with these fucking weird websites and riddles and clues and shit...

== Dave Lombardo is back in Slayer and that's awesome. Last time I saw them play live Kerry still had hair...

== I'm waiting for the new Lostprophets record with that terrible mix of dread and hope, because they went to a certain producer whose reputation for taking good bands and spinning them into commercial-sounding CRAP is legend...

== I SHOULD be looking forward to Jeff Martin's album Kingdom In Exile but I'm still not over the fact that his band, The Tea Party, had to break up - messily - prior to him doing this. Blagh.

There's more. I'm just too spent to bore you any further with it.

The Mars Volta
Modest Mouse
Radiohead

I'm undecided about any new Metallica record.

Operation Mindcrime II will be out in April. I'm stoked.

see spot run said...

Looking foward to these Cd's:

AFI
TOOL (supposedly it's called 10,000 days)
Moz
Muse
AND Radiohead

Desert Queen said...

Oh god yes, definitely Muse. Placebo, Moz, and of course AFI. <3

Lori said...

I don't know about Metallica either. I've always loved them, but their last record sucked. Then I watched some dvd regarding the "making of the monster" or something like that, and found out why. Seems they've turned into a bunch of whiny primadonnas who need high-priced therapists on site just to get along with each other. And Hetfield's aparently straight, sooo... It's a damn shame, but every good thing must come to an end sometime.

sara said...

I'm very excited for The Falcon's full length.

The new Streetlight Manifesto, the new AFI obviously...


And best albums of the past two years is kind of a mean question. I am terrible at cd release schedules. Big D's - "How It Goes" is pretty excellent. A local Toronto band called The Flatliners are awesome and just re-released "Destroy to Create" on Canada's STOMP records. I don't know when this was released but the Modest Mouse record pretty much owns. The Music's "Welcome to the North" is a good record. Bedouin Soundclash. Elliott Smith. The Decemberists' "Picareque".

But I hope the next two years will be loads better.

shanagdi said...

I'm currently lost in the past listening to Let's Active & desperately trying to get in a better mood.

Obviously, I am anxiously awaiting the new AFI cd. As far as other new cds, I'm interested in hearing Morrissey's new stuff, but I just don't like him as much without Mr. Marr. Recently, I heard that Johnny Marr is working with Modest Mouse. I'm not a big fan of MM, but I'm curious. I've liked what I heard from Angels & Airwaves. I really like Muse. I have fond memories of Slayer, but that's a story on its own.

Adair is looking forward to the Kingdom Hearts II soundtrack. Adair chose 'American Idiot' and 'The Sunlandic Twins' by Of Montreal as his best album pics.

Autumn said...

Diffently excited about the new Morrissy and of course the new AFI album!

Ebon said...

hmmmm cd's that i love for the past two years...
MSI(Mindless Self Induglance)- Yoiu'll Rebel to Anything
Dresdendolls
Archtecture In Helsinki- Like A Call


as far as what i'm waitng on... if i whine about the new afi it wont make it come faster and the new Moz, not really sure i'm just in let me find good music stage.

a hopeless insomniac said...

(fearful of seeming obsequious)- AFI !!

Let's see if Axl can get Chinese Democracy out this year (sigh). If not, what will his excuse be this time??

And Muse. Can't forget them.

Karmacoma said...

The new Appleseed Cast Cd has got me excited. A fantastic local band called A Whisper In The Noise should have a new one out soon. And of course AFI, but you knew that already.

Sonorous said...

I can't narrow it down to just one..

. Album Leaf - Seal Beach EP
. Lydia - This December..
. Acceptance - Phantoms
. Jettie - Heading For Mornings
. Erasure - Nightbird
. VNV Nation - Matter + Form
. Perishers - Let There Be Morning

As for upcoming albums, I can't WAIT for Morrissey, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TG, Saves The Day, the Static Age<3, ERASURE!, Cursive.. mmm. Hopefully it will be a better year for music, as the last was so full of breakups and death. I was so sad to hear Stars called it quits.

Sonorous said...

YES! As mentioned above, the new Appleseed Cast record is going to be amazing.. can't wait. I forgot about this one, and I'd really like to add Everything In Transit by Jack's Mannequin to my list of favourites.

Helen said...

Can't wait for AFI and Muse. (I didn't actually know Muse were releasing a new album but now I do I'm looking forward to it, yay!)

Pretty_Much_Totally_Awesome said...

Upcoming albums...hmmmm Muse is an excitement, Tiger army as well. You might kick me in the face but I have to say Taking Back Sunday. Guilty Pleasure I cant help it. Also Brand New, (*Guards Face*). ALso there happens to be this one band that I adore but have told us a new album many times and still havent givin us the goods. Alas, I do belive I can waite though, it will make their music the more sweeter.I wonder if you know who I am talking about ;)

Johanna said...

mmmh, I haven't bought many cd's in the last two years (I think stick a little with my "old" stuff)...
But I really like the two Franz Ferdinand cd's and I absolutely love the soundtrack uf "The Phantom of the Opera"
Oh, and not to forget Best Of Guns'n'Roses =)

I'm looking forward to
- AFI
- a cd I can listen to anytime =)

Anonymous said...

Any other place: I´ll be sad : (


Lots of love to ya :***

In the last two years...
Franz Ferdinand - self titled (I think it just about squeezes in there)

Kanye West - late registraition!!!! <3

As for up and coming... I gotta say Blur.

frijole ghost said...

arnie's flattopped igloo is pretty cool, but i might have to wait till '07

xFreedomBulletx said...

whatever happen to H2O? I'd look forward if that album were/is coming out. I love music with a passion but I think the only cd I would be really excited and going apeshit for would be if the original members of The Gits did one...I think I'd also be a little scared though too...

Love Is Dead said...

The ones i'm excited for:
-new Radiohead
-new Thursday
-new Brand New (the demos are great)
-new mewithoutYou
-new monument full length
-new head automatica

and obviously my favorite band of all time AFI..p.s.-are you guys doin anything special for the 3rd anniversary of STS on saturday?

Seperia said...

Hhmm, it's difficult to pick the best album from the last two years. But for an upcoming record, yours and Evanescence I'm waiting for impaitently.

havey_angel said...

MUSE RULES!!!

Skylar said...

Looking forward for Radiohead, Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Thursday and duh~ AFI.

emi said...

As well as AFI I am quite looking forward to Tool, and there should be a new The Cure one out soonright? I'll probably get the new Moz one too but I'm not his most hugest fan.
I have to say though, AFI's got me most excited!

Paquolin said...

It's hard to mention only 2 albums:







FINCH - Say Hello To Sunshine
30 SECONDS TO MARS -A Beautiful Lie
BILLY TALENT - Billy Talent
MIDTOWN - Forget What You Know
DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN - MissMachine
BLINK 182 - Blink 182

St.Jimmy said...

Definitive Tool, AFI, Muse and Slayer.

The Timid Wild One said...

As for shows.... I would be excited for them if I could afford to go to them.
But my one friend from Alabama is going to see them in New Orleans on the 28th. Since it's my birthday, he's going to buy me a shirt and put Trent in a box and ship them up here. hahahahahaha

2. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
3. Moz
4. Hawthrone Heights (which was just released)

reanimation17sec said...

-Zombie Apoclaypse/Send More Paramedics split album
-Iron & Wine-Woman King e.p
-Opeth-Ghost Reveries (saw them live on Sunday night AMAZING!!!)

shoot me for saying so, but I'm interested to hear the new Metallica album that Rick Rubin is producing....in my heart of hearts I still believe this band can make a good album.

p.s. It's OK Jade, I hate Panic!At the Disco as well.
(I know that's who you were referring to)

Michael said...

I would say, out of the last two years, some of the cds that have stayed in my cd player the longest:


*Bright Eyes-I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
*Every Time I Die- Gutter Phenomenon
*Spill Canvas- One Fell Swoop
*Chiodos- All's Well That Ends Well
*The Number 12 Looks Like You- Nuclear. Sad. Nuclear

yeah i gave 5, sorry about that, then again i am like the 153 post, so theres no chance you'll be reading this anyway. But it was fun making a list.

fantasyxcore said...

im waiting for the albun of a argentinan band call
eterna inocencia(the band)
and im waitin´g for the new a fire inside record:D

Kara said...

I'm excited for the new Yeah Yeah Yeah's album in a couple of weeks, Tiger Army, Moz, and, obviously, AFI!

Haija said...

I can not wait for the new Dresden Dolls cd "Yes Virgina..." coming out this april. I'm saving up for it right now. And I'm sure this might have been said a bunch, but of course you guys' new album.

livvy said...

Yours (du-uh). Thursday. Morrissey. Muse. Taking Back Sunday. Brand New. Bouncing Souls. The Ataris. John Mayer (it's supposed to be like the John Mayer Trio album, yay). Rise Against.

Most of these are *hopefully* going to be done and out soon.

Uh... more. Once I figure that out.

If Spitalfield is recording (I do not know for I haven't visited their website lately), I am definately waiting for their new album. I unintentionally left them off my list of favorites. Them and Muse.

Miss Murderess said...

Besides from AFI? Let's see... Slayer, definitely... The Birthday Massacre would be good option but ha, their cd won't be out for another year... And The Action Design, definitely n_n

Anonymous said...

upcoming albums Im excited for:

-AFI- (of course)
-Tool- (havent put out a record in 5 years)
-Muse-
-Static Age- (I heard they have a new one coming)
-Guns n' Roses- (very interested to hear this one. its been talked about for 10 years now)
-8 Om-

jmolek28 said...

im excited for the new slayer cd... oh and the new afi cd..which i have a feeling is coming "sooner than soon"

In Shadows Growing Wings said...

You can not belive how happy I am about the upcoming Slayer album!:)Its been like ages since the God Hates Us All record and that one fucking rocked!(which is pretty natural,ist Slayer:)).
But im also looking foward into an upcoming album from The Offspring,Anaal Nathrakh and G├ąte (they are so fucking awesome!!!!)

But most of all, your new album.You guys are driving me slowly but safely to insanity!:))

Rock on!

JadeyX said...

Muse! Can't wait for their new one. Placebo's new one comes out in a few weeks, and I'm hella psyched for that. I want a new Cursive CD, too.

I'm also anticipating the new AFI CD...!!! *ahem*

Under Saturns Shadow said...

Probably
The Honorary Title - Anything Else But The Truth
The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute
The Bravery - The Bravery
Reggie and the Full Effect - Songs Not To Get Married To
The Cure - The Cure
Coheed and Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume 1: From Fear...

those are just a few of my favorites. I'm really looking foreward to a new Tiger Army record, as well as The Honorary Title and AFI, of course.

Your Monster said...

Aqualung - Strange and Beautiful
Dresden Dolls - self-titled album
HIM - Dark Light
Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
James Blunt - Back to Bedlam
And, of course, Green Day - American Idiot

And I cannot wait for AFI's newest. Or Thursday's. Or Slayer. Or Radiohead. Or Morrissey. Or Tiger Army. Or The City Drive (my guilty pleasure band from LA xD).

Stigmata Martyr said...

Morrissey's new album will be nothing short of amazing.
The new single and video are just perfect.
Besides that, the only other thing I'm looking foward to is new AFI.
The best albums to come out of the last 2 years were
Depeche Mode's Playing the Angel, VNV Nation's Matter + Form, Bright Eye's I'm Wide Awake, it's Morning/Digital Ash in a Digital Urn, and Garbage's Bleed Like Me.

Cone Hat said...

I bet you hate Coheed and Cambria. Well! Guess what? I hate them MORE ...if that's who you hate. I understand perfectly that it is not really appropriate [for you] to publically berate a band.
Anyhow. Muse's new album is DEFINITELY something I will be vibrating over. And I don't like to sound like a corn dog, but I (along with everyone, I'm sure) am excited to see what AFI are going to pull out of the hat. Speaking of, who has he obsession with bunnies?
Jeebus.
Anyway...favorite albums,eh?
"Fever to Tell" - Yeah Yeah Yeah's
"Elevator" - Hot Hot Heat
"Antics" - Interpol
"Fantastic Wounds" - The Schoolyard Heroes
"Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes" - TV on the Radio
"You're A Woman, I'm A Machine" - Death From Above 1979
"You'll Rebel To Anything" - MSI
Now I'm going overboard, I do believe.
Well, time for "Les Plouffe".

Make connections with the little people,
Cone Hat.

p.s. Honorable mention to "American Idiot"(since it has shown up so often that I feel SHOULD say something). I would have enjoyed it more had they shortened their songs by, say, 40 minutes or so. Each. The melody and content are pretty bitchin', though!

girlisgrey said...

I'm really looking forward to AFI's new album.
they are amazing, you should check them out sometime Jade!!

:)

A Girl with Broken Dreams said...

Someone didn't feel like posting an entirely new blog. Most anticipated? Duh. AFI. Other than that...God, I don't even know any other cds that are coming out soon. I'm dying under loads of homework. And therefore the only thing I'm keeping up with is AFI's new album and the Charlotte theories. Other than that I'm doing homework...or commenting on your blog. ^_^ Yeah. So..um...I'll have to find out what the hell's coming out...have a wonderful day...night...leprechaun...

A Girl with Broken Dreams said...

Yeah, and I definitely JUST realized that American Idiot was most definitely released within the last two years. It feels like it was released 5 years ago. but that's because time of pastness is dragging, not because I don't know what year it was released in. ...Don't ask why I felt the need to comment to say that.

nineteen84 said...

Ummmmmm...
The Static Age - Neon Lights Electric Lives
Comeback Kid - Wake The Dead
Sylvie - An Electric Trace
Bright Eyes - Digital Ash and I'm Wide Awake
Silversun Pickups - Pikul
The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute
Elliot Smith - From A Basement on the Hill
Arcade Fire - Funeral

Can't wait for:
Appleseed Cast
Ataris
AFI
And Saves The Day who I will finally see live in April after years of waiting.

I'm through being cool.

I absolutley love the new Cure CD, I don't care what anyone thinks about it, it's amazing

I'm guessing Cradle of Filth or Antics (wtf man?).

Midnight Rose said...

Hmmph, most def. VNV Nation and Mars Volta.

I really can't wait for the new Morrissey, Erasure and the Static Age.

Aska said...

hmm. best album of the last two years?
that's hard... too hard... i can't decide. and i SWEAR it has nothing to do with how i cannot remember any CD's right now.

and looking forward to?
besides the new AFI CD i've been waiting for for a long time?
...
ahh, well, i'm not too sure about this one, either. i would say Moi Dix Mois, but 1) the CD came out a week ago or so... and 2) it's not being released in the US. and i can't import things so good such as music. it's sad, i know.
i don't believe the new Zelda game counts? i could always listen to the music in the game.

so i guess i'll stay with my J-Rock obsession, until the new AFI CD comes out.

when, at that time, i will play it on full blast while playing Zelda: Twilight Princess. also sound on full blast. it's not hard listening to two things at once.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, there's this band called AFI and they supposedly have a new CD coming out this year. I'm hella stoked.

Suicide Bride said...

morrissey! oh it will be beautiful. i cant wait.
i like that new band we are scientists,theyre great too =)

I would definitely say Slayer, YOUR ALBUM, Shadows Fall, and Lamb of God...In Flames new album is amazing too.

Placebo's Meds is coming out on Monday- that should be good.
Is it true that you Americans don't get it until ages after us? Its a change to have it the other way round!

Fragile said...

to name a few- Atreyu, the new Dresden Dolls, and the YEAH YEAH YEAHS!

J. said...

Last two years:
AC Newman - The Slow Wonder
Antony & the Johnsons - I Am a Bird Now

Can't wait for:
Radiohead's new LP.

Album I'm Looking Forward to:
The New Kill Hannah album. I love their music so much.
i don't know what my fave albums of the last two years are. I really like the academy is..,'s album "Almost Here" and Butch Walker's "Letters" is amazing.

City And Colout-Dallas Green
Watch Out!-Alexisonfire

Anonymous said...

I am so excited for Muse.. and the best recent album I think was Sugarcult. I don't know why but I love them.

Kitty said...

Bleeding Through, Depeche Mode, She Wants Revenge and Tiger Army all the way?

As for upcoming? Take a wild fucking guess. =P

<3

nophilosopher said...

I really liked The Bravery's CD.

I am anticipating the new AFI cd. It is painful.

Static said...

The best album in the past two years..........1) [With Teeth]-NIN 2) Absolution-Muse


I'm most looking forward to Tool's new release coming up soon, and in Muse's upcoming release.

Nick Taxidermy said...

Axis of Perdition's Deleted Scenes From The Transition Hospital's pretty fucking special. I dunno if you still listen to any Black Metal, but it's rad. totally dark, atmospheric, experimental. I promise, it will scare the shit out of you.

album I'm looking forward to? how about the new AFI?

wasteofpaint said...

i am hoping the band you can't stand is the white stripes. i know i don't like them.
i am definitely looking forward to placebo's new album. and yes, the US doesn't get it 'till the 26th or sometime around there. also tiger army and moz. i really don't know what else comes out this year.

and here is some shameless promotion.
i am looking forward to my friend's band's cd to come out. even though everything is done by them. myspace.com/leftsideantics

Special day:

Today...Chuck Norris B-Day ^^ 66

Two Albums of last 2 years:

Rammstein - Reise Reise (Reise Reise Tour was the best show live ever)
Apocalyptica - Self Titled (Nordic Killing Cello Quatuor)

Waiting:
Smaching Pumpkins - Untitled and surely for 2007 (If they find a deal)
Muse - Planned for the 26 Apr 06 (Heard 4 tracks...I think it will kick ass - VIVE LA GRATTE AU CLAV!)

Other Waiting:
AFI (No comment)
Suiffect (Our Band...We finished building our studio last summer...Got about 80-90 songs...But we had to kick out our Guitar player...Anyone wants to play in a Electro-Melodic-Hard-Rock band? ^^
Finding time when you got a job and a family it's hard to find time to meet only a week for recording :S - Let's say October 2006 - suiffect.net

-----------------------------------

PS
3 things:
1- Hope you won't be on tour in Europe this August...We will be on tour and (Hoping Davey won't see this line and you won't tell...)we got his Fafi T-shirt that we finally got last month!!!
2- Hoping that Hunter liver didn't blow up (See his signature ;]), the Afireinsidefans.net website was online only 6 weeks last year. This because I love afrenchinside.net and I didn't want to do something similar.
The new one is about 60% finish and will be sent on the same day as the new album (only in French for the moment...couldn't find some help).Keeped Secret for the moment (Question: Is there anyway to get the band (and if possible the AFI Crew) Face and Side picture?)
3- Didn't receive any reply concerning copyright...Here, they try to lock website about band lyrics and tabs (What is your opinion about it?), but I will put them anyway and 3 Remixed AFI song electro style (I asked if there was a way to get Davey voice along...No answer...so we manage something else (If you do have a solution, please let me know!!!). But if someone will ask me to cut some stuff, I will do.

I'll try to pass more often...If I got time

@plouch ;]

kat said...

I just remembered some new releases I'm really waiting for. Thursday! And Brand New! Out of the ones you mentioned, I'm really looking forward to Slayer and Morrissey. And if the band you can't stand is Panic! at te Disco, I feel your pain. I personally do not understand the hype surrounding them. Oh well. I also can't stand Dresden Dolls. I dunno why. Just don't.

shanagdi said...

I've been ill so I forgot to add that I'm excited about new Static Age & Tiger Army.

Hannah said...

um....Lars and the Bastards, "Viking" was full of amazing. My Chemical Romance "Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge" The Used, "In Love and Death" Alkaline Trio's "Crimson"

Also a few local bands here in southwest michigan have put out some amazing music as well. Oceans of Regret "Cardboard and Rainwater", Mulligan "The Tides of Blackheart Bay", Broken Sunday "Identity", Ginger Fig "Take the Money...Leave the Girl" so many. Gotta love the awesomely awesome local music.

As for upcoming... Well YOURS of course. I have been anticipating it for way over a year now. and I can't wait to have it! others would be.... okay I'm not sure. I've been obsessing with Japanese Rock music again and I don't really know when their various ep.s or cds come out... hmmm, you said Saves the Day has new stuffs coming? I love them, I'll have to go and look into that. hehe.

love ya Jade.

Vanessa Carlton's Harmonium
Rilo Kiley's More Adventurous
Death Cab for Cutie's Plans
John William's work for Harry Potter PoA; Gotta love the Knightbus!
Danny Elfman's work for Corpse Bride
Muse's Absolution
My Chemical Romance's Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge
The Weird Sister's stuff in Harry Potter GoF :) That stuff's jamming

Looking forward to: YOU GUYS! Of course! I'm also looking forward to Vanessa Carlton's new work (as she says she's already started), as well as MCR's. I really want to hear Elefant's new album, too, but that has already been released :P

It's sad because a lot of the music I really love that I get into was probably released 5/10/20/50 years prior to this year. I'm so late ._.
