Top 5: October

October 1, 2006

September spelled back to school for me, while I thought that would mean I’d have less time to listen to music, I’ve found that having iTunes playing in the background helps when faced with the thought of writing two papers in one night. Here have been my favorite albums:

1. Vheissu– Thrice

I really gave this album its first full-length listen this month and I was shocked. I’ve really enjoyed it. While it’s not that heavy, their music really is great.

2. 7 Ways to Scream Your Name – Funeral for a Friend

This was the first of FFAF that the United States heard. The quality sucks and it’s very unrefined, but I still love it.

3. Waiting – Thursday

This band has yet to fall from my top 5 of the month. Waiting is classic, a must for any fan of post-hardcore/ emo.

4. Cover Your Tracks – Bury Your Dead

I love “Color of Money”. I really couldn’t care what anyone else has to say about this band, they put out a good record.

5. S/t EP – Century

I loved this album a year ago and I still love it today. Century is an amazing band and the self titled EP blew me away.
