I think I like their last album better, but this new style is really working for them.

Hmm...I don't really have anything to add that hasn't been mentioned already. The Sword's new one rocks, it'll probably make my top 10. Overall, though, I think this is going to end up being an off year, because almost all of my favorite bands put out records last year. The year could be redeemed if Opeth's new record is great, as well as if Dillinger Four actually puts one out like they said they would.

That's why you have to explore new bands. As far as I'm concerned, there's no such thing as an "off year".

I agree, and you're right, these are the kinds of years where I usually find a lot of new bands. I guess I just meant it's "off" year in that there aren't many albums that I'm excited for right off the bat.

I mean, c'mon. Explore new bands? Look who you're talking to

On "off years" I don't really buy a lot of new releases, cause when I decide to check out a new band (which happens more often without a bunch of my favorite bands putting out new albums) I tend to try out an older band or an older album by a band who put out an album recently or something.

Exclamation

Oh shit what the fuck I totally forgot Disfear's new one came out in '08 too, get at that one because it'll almost definitely make my end-of-year top 10

as far as exploring new bands goes, usually their latest albums arent good representations of what theyre capable of. think of some bands with really amazing albums, then go and look at the most recent one they put out. not a good marker.
