Rozzi Crane 6.0
Space - EP
Rozzi Crane brings the sass in debut EP.
The Gitas 6.5
The Gitas make use of their influences and with a little fine-tuning, can make a place for themselves
Imagine Dragons 6.0
Smoke + Mirrors
This lengthy reach for mainstream alternative has its bumps in the road, but the solidity of their catchy tunes is the ideal airbag – highlighting what Imagine Dragons really thrive in.
People on Vacation 7.0
The Chronicles of Tim Powers
For the most part, People on Vacation rely on indie rock charm and pop punk catchiness to grab their audience, and they do a pretty good job of it.
Make Do and Mend 6.5
Don't Be Long
Hefty and melodic New England post-hardcore
Various Artists 8.0
Fifty Shades of Grey Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
'Fifty Shades of Grey' soundtrack perfectly embodies its sexy storyline and emotionally complex characters.
Bowling For Soup 7.0
Songs People Actually Liked Volume 1 The First Ten Years
A fantastic trip down memory lane that will leave you smiling.
Of Beauty And Rage
An epic, refreshing return to form.
Stick to Your Guns 8.5
This is the kind of record that the scene kid, emo fan, and post-hardcore aficionado can all embrace together, as this album is hardcore at heart, but emotional at its core, and the results are top notch.
Drug Church 7.0
On their second EP, Drug Church proves to listeners just how enigmatic they can be, but the results aren’t anything to dwell over.
Juliet Simms 6.0
All Or Nothing - EP
Juliet Simms' solo debut is wickedly refreshing and eclectic.
The Frozen Flame Tour 8.0
@ Irving Plaza
Title Fight 7.5
Title Fight recreate their sound in a very positive way.
Evacuate The City 8.0
The Catastrophe - EP
Falling under categories for Evacuate The City puts them in a great place to grow from, but what makes this EP even better is that they don’t necessarily blend in either.
A rip-roaring album debut, Purple is brash and fun, but you feel like it's just the beginning of something
Juggernaut: Alpha & Omega
A dual-disc, dual-faced progressive metal monster.
The Curious Incident 7.0
They’re pop rock done in the most intelligent way possible.
Papa Roach 6.5
F.E.A.R (Face Everything And Rise)
Papa Roach's 7th album has the potential to bring them back to their former mid '00s glory.
Fall Out Boy 6.5
American Beauty/American Psycho
While I enjoyed most of American Beauty/American Psycho I'm probably not going to be listening to it on repeat.
You Blew It! 8.0
Pioneer of Nothing EP
The band has not only found a way to mature their sound past what was heard on last year’s Keep Doing What You’re Doing but managed to do so in less than ten minutes, allowing for the perfect sampling size of what the band has to offer.
Lupe Fiasco 8.5
Tetsuo & Youth
Welcome back, Lupe! It's about time.
Marilyn Manson 7.0
The Pale Emperor
The Pale Emperor seems like a return from an old friend. Manson reminds us why he stood out in the first place
No Cities to Love
It is crazy to think that this band is in their 40s, as they sound rejuvenated as ever. Hatch, Brownstein and eclectically-skilled drummer Janet Weiss manage to bring their timeless punk rock to 2015, and it is just as fresh and empowered as it was when we first heard it.
Mark Ronson 4.0
Mark Ronson's attempt at modernizing funk and Motown falls short in 'Uptown Special.'
Mikky Ekko 9.0
Ekko is nothing short of a Picasso and Time is a work of art.
Joey Bada$$ 6.0
Three years after the release of his first mixtape, Joey Badass looks to bring his independent spirit to a wider audience with his debut album, B4.Da.$$, but the results are a tad uneven.
The Hunting Party Tour 8.0
@ Bridgestone Arena
This tour brought back some of our favorites.
Enter Shikari 8.0
Enter Shikari push themselves to new artistic heights.
Mind Equals Blown
