"That shit cray" = "That shit's crazy"

"Ball so hard" = kinda just what it sounds like, comes from the line "ball so hard muthafuckas wanna fine me," just means you're on your A-game, kicking ass

Ball So Hard university T-shirts are selling like hotcakes around here since Terrell Suggs said that was his college on MNF. Funny shit

yeah every single night that song is blasting in my dorm hallway at least 3 times. I don't mind it because it is a sick beat.

Gucci Gucci feels like such a bland song, yet I still like it for some reason.

I've been saying "That shit cray" before 2011.

In the journalism school at IU, we're taught not to use the words "unique" when "distinctive" will suffice because very few things are truly unique. SubRosa are fucking unique. A majority female doom metal band from Utah with two lead electric violinists. I've never heard a record quite like this one, and even though it sounds like a gimmick, it really isn't. This is crushing doom metal, through and through. They really make their unconventional setup work for them, and the triple vocal attack of Rebecca Vernon, Kim Pack, and Sarah Pendleton really shines, especially with their low notes. Speaking of low notes, turn this up loud enough on a decent set of speakers and the bass will literally rip your intestines out through your asshole. It's possibly the heaviest album of the year and certainly one of the best.

(Matador)

Surprise of the century, I know. What can I say? This album challenged me from the first time I spun the promo copy I got at the Quietus back in May and continues to do so seven months later. At this point, it might be not only my favorite album of 2011 but my favorite album ever. There are many reasons for that, but I'll try to outline them quickly.

First of all, and probably most importantly, it makes me feel like I did when I was 12 and first getting into music beyond pop radio. I can't tell you how many times I've scrawled the Fucked Up logo or sketched the dual lightbulb art in my notebook this year, and I'm a goddamn 21-year-old college student. I've watched every video, read every review, interviewed the band, been to two shows, read the lyrics booklet while listening to the album, and basically done everything I can do to get inside this album, and I feel like there's still some great truth that hasn't revealed itself yet. I'm enthusiastic and optimistic and bright-eyed about music in a way that I haven't been since junior high school, and it's thanks to this record.

Second, for as much exists below the surface, at the surface it's fucking amazing. Every song is a rocker, filled to the brim with accessible riffs and vocal hooks and a fat, groovy rhythm section. It's also abrasive. Damian Abraham's bark is in top form here. On past Fucked Up records, I don't think he knew exactly how to employ his limited range, but here, every single take is perfect. There's absolutely no way to improve any of it. All of that exists before you even seriously delve into what else the album has to offer, which brings us to our next point.

It's a concept record, and the concept is actually interesting. It's simultaneously an easy-to-understand love story that drifts through tragedy but eventually resolves. Again, there's more to dig through. It's also a meta story about characters who become conscious that they're characters, cast on a stage night after night, sticking to their script, unable to change their fates. When our lead character finally does, of course, it grants the album title so much more power.

Lastly, what this album represents is as exciting as what it actually contains. In a genre as bent on a fuck-the-system mindset as hardcore punk, making hardcore punk the system and fucking that is the most subversive act of all. This is a 78-minute rock opera with giant melodies that still fits into the punk camp. Suck on that, Johnny Rotten.

I've said this all very poorly because I did it in about five minutes and I've written far too much about this album elsewhere throughout the year, but for my money, Damian Abraham, Sandy Miranda, Jonah Falco, Mike Haliechuk, Josh Zucker, Ben Cook, David Eliade, Veronica Boisson, Vivian Benson, and Octavio St. Laurent are responsible for the greatest work of recorded music certainly of the year, probably of the decade, and possibly of all time.

"The Other Shoe"
These two are probably right now my biggest why the fuck didn't I listen to this sooner releases. They would have easily made my list, glad to see where 17th Street made #3. Great list though dude.
