'08's Music to Love More Than Music: Like, Pt. 12

Like ( )
Atmosphere - When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold
No, it was not a great album. But Atmosphere is good at what he does, so it's hard to imagine that he would pump out something that he would have to paint gold. that said, this does have a little bit of gold paint on it.
Atmosphere - Wild Wild Horses
I still have no idea what he's talking about. ever.

The Nightwatchman - The Fabled City
Hmmm. Tom's last album was a ball breaker. This one just comes off as whiny. It's not bad, but maybe he needs to focus more on the sound and message, instead of just the message. That's what I'd like to see anyway.
The Nightwatchman - Whatever It Takes

Local H - 12 Angry Months
The last time I listened to Local H was, oh, almost 12 years ago. I liked their one song where they said a curse word. Because I was in middle school. However!, they have, as it turns out, still been making albums since then. Their sound hasn't much changed, but I must admit that this album had some pretty catchy songs on it. It wasn't my scene anymore, so it didn't really stuck, but I think Local H ought to be proud of this release.
Local H - March: BMW Man

Witch - Paralyzed
Throwback to noisier heavy metal-ish sounds, Witch invokes the 80's gods to make a distorted and masterfully sculpted album. I just didn't dig it all that much is all.
Witch - Space God

Black Gold - Tragedy & Legacy
An unexpected dance classic at times, but then it gets a little old. Good effort, and more goodies are sure to come. (see original review)
Black Gold - Breakdown

Correction: Atmosphere = Slug and Ant. Slug is the MC and the DJ is Ant. Just thought I should point that out.

That album was legit... I just, for some reason, couldn't get into it. It's one of those times where I picked it apart, but ultimately came up with no reason why I didn't like it. It was a great album, just not for me, I guess.
