Alesso shows promise with expert soft crafting, but with half of the album having some time on it, Forever sounds like a complilation
True Colors dabbles on the familiar, but shows some sights of musicial growth
Haste The Day 8.0
Serene beauty in moments of harsh desolation.
Diamond Youth 7.0
While it is a short release, this album facilitates the evolution of a band that has built great potential behind them.

The Story So Far 4.5
The Story So Far
Unfortunately what was expected to be another milestone on a path of success is instead a misstep that lacks the band’s earlier cohesiveness, which leaves the band’s rise to the top in jeopardy.
While Cartel has somewhat fallen off the grid in terms of popularity, Chroma is one of those essential albums that every person who thoroughly enjoyed the mid-2000's music scene should hold close to their hearts.
The Apprehended 7.5
Can We Just Speak
While The Apprehended have surely not reinvented themselves, they have put a great foot forward.

Kids In Love
The Mowgli's produce an array of feel-good tracks in newest album 'Kids In Love.'
Confessions is not the best album that you will hear this year, but neither is it the worst.

Passion Pit 9.0
Off-kilter drum beats, bouncy synth-lines and sickly sweet exterior.

A Golden Blue
