Jimmy Eat World - Invented
09/29/10 at 07:32 PM by Ryan Gardner
I simply cannot get enough of this album. I've loved all of JEW's previous releases - Futures being my favorite - and I feel that Invented could end up being my favorite record by them. Adkin's lyrics are pristine as always, his vocals soar, and the guitars and drums form around his sound better than ever.

It's the perfect record as the fall weather comes. Highly recommended for the die hard Jimmy Eat World fan or for anyone looking to check them out for the first time.

Check out Chris Fallon's fantastic review here if you need any more convincing: http://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=1935272

Wanted: "Oldies"/Classic Music Recs
09/23/10 at 07:37 PM by Ryan Gardner
The last few weeks I've been trying to expand my musical tastes, listening to some "oldies" and discovering old artists and such.

I've been digging The Beatles a ton (but that's a given), The Beach Boys, Billy Joel, some Styx, old U2, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Clash, Simon & Garfunkel, some Rush, etc.

Can any of you all help me find some more old/classic artists or records I still need to add to my collection? Much appreciated.

First Impressions: Linkin Park - A Thousand Suns
09/11/10 at 07:44 AM by Ryan Gardner
Admittedly, I was a pretty big fan of Linkin Park's earlier work (Hybrid Theory and Meteora) back in the day. I found Minutes To Midnight to have some plausible tracks, albeit the majority of that record was ultimately forgettable.

Now, they continued in their MTM direction with their latest record, A Thousand Suns. Simply put, the band tries to hard to be epic on this album, and the effort falls short; however, I will give them props for being different with every release, as this record does convey creativity and clearly involved a lot of thinking and work for LP.
