121 Aggressive - Beartooth V 1 Comment
122 Boxes - The Goo Goo Dolls
123 The Human Condition - Jon Bellion
124 Blood Money - Dope
125 Imagica - The Birthday Massacre

You know you have an exceptional band when a collection of 11 demos sounds three times as good as an average band's regular studio albums. It bothers me this amazing group gets so little attention and airplay. - Martin_Canine

126 Glory Days - Little Mix V 1 Comment
127 Fire on the Floor - Beth Hart
128 24k Magic - Bruno Mars
129 You Want It Darker - Leonard Cohen
130 Retrogore - Aborted
131 Violet Cry - Garnidelia
132 Imperator - Kollegah
133 Broken Lines - Giraffe Tongue Orchestra
134 This is Unruly Mess I've Made - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
135 100 Reasons to Live - Gareth Emery
136 Plays the Music of Twin Peaks - Xiu Xiu
137 Hopelessness - Anohni

The title of the album describes what I thought of the album.
I mean, I guess Anohni isn't terrible (fully), but she's definitely not as amazing as I thought she was. Violent Men and Obama are easily the worst songs on here, mainly because the political messages in them hit and miss.

2/10. She could do much better. - Swellow

138 All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us - Architects
139 Hope - The Strumbellas
140 The Brightest Void - Tarja

Tarja reinvents herself on this album, the first volume of a two part series with the second, "The Shadow Self", due in early August. It features a variety of styles, with symphonic metal only being present on the Within Temptation collaboration "Paradise", ranging from pop rock to almost musical touches, also some country rock, alternative and even a bit of Björk-like electronica. Fans and critics alike may be devided over this new styles, calling it unfocused, but to me it is Tarja's most creative, inventive and varied album (and, with 9 tracks lasting for about 44 minutes, it has no filler tracks). - Martin_Canine
