not much point since I didn't listen to many new albums this year and very few new metal records, but eh, here goes:

Dirty Heads- Dirty Demo- Forgot about this the first time around. Discovered these guys when they supported Matisyahu this past summer. This is an excellent blend of acoustic surf rock and hip hop from some socal white kids, its all at once laid back stoner music and angry angst with great flow and rhymes, I predict big things

Brother Ali- The Undisputed Truth- Excellent hip-hop record from the albino rapper Brother Ali, highly recommended

Slightly Stoopid- Chronchitis- Not as good as their past releases, but still some great surf/reggae/acoustic jams that delve pretty heavily into the horn section this go around

The Nightwatchman- One Man Revolution- Good folk CD from Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, surprising stuff to come from him, he branches out of the single string massive riffs and even sings

Brant Bjork- Tres Dias- Good laid back CD my brother gave me with some folk tinge

Rebelution- Courage to Grow- Really disappointing, especially in the light of their flawless self-titled Ep, but these Santa Barbara locals still produce a few good straight up reggae tunes, unfortunately they mix them with a lot of lame, poorly produced tracks

Various Artists- Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur- This benefit CD covering all John Lennon songs includes a lot of crap from a lot of crappy bands, but Matisyahu's rendition of Watching the Wheels, Ben Harper's Beautiful Boy, Green Day's Working Class Hero, Black Eyed Pea's Power to the People and a few other great tracks, as well as the fact its all for charity prompted a buy


slim year

Saw the Dirty Heads at Icer Air (the ski/snowboard super ramp at pac bell park). They were so-so. Couldn't chill out after multiple free energy drinks over an hour. Kickass octopus stickers though, haha.
I agree with you on Stoopid. Ocean is my favorite song of theirs, probly my favorite song to come out all year.
I still have only given Rebelution only one spin, so all I can say right now is that their shit jams well, but the lyrics are a little bit too socially driven for me.
Have you bought the new Expendables yet?

holy shit, someone else who likes metal and this stuff!
Dirty Heads definitely can improve but I recommend the Dirty Demo if you can find it, they also released an Ep a little later which overproduces their sound imo, but has two of their best songs.
Ocean is probably the highlight of that cd along with Baby I like it and 2 am, but the cd definitely pales in comparison with their three other studio releases.
I wasn't impressed with Courage to Grow, and the lyrics are pretty socially driven, they definitely have an agenda, but I enjoy them. The Ep is perfect if you don't already have it.
I haven't yet gotten the new Expendables and I don't think I will. The only CD I have of theirs in gettin' filthy and I really only like Bowl for Two and Sacrifice. Something about them is really hit or miss with me, the melodies can be kind of lame and the singer voice's sometimes fits and sometimes doesn't at all. I did just see them with Pepper though and they were amazing live, all of their songs were great and the voice didn't irk me at all. So... either they're great live or I'm an easy sell when I'm baked
