The Thursday Ten: 10/20/16

It’s Thursday which means it’s time for one of my favorite segments to write on Erik’s Album Reveiws: The Thursday Ten.  You guys should know the rules by now; every album is listened to 1-2 times and given a numerical, whole number score out of 10.  This week I chose a bunch of 2016 (and one 2015) releases that I really enjoy, so the ratings might not fluctuate that much and might appear inflated to a new reader.  However, if you read last week’s “The Thursday Ten”, which also happens to be posted below, then you will know that I don’t always give ratings this high.  All albums mentioned can be streamed on any of the major music streaming and distribution sites.  Give them a listen and let us know what you think of the ratings and what albums we should rate next below in the comments!

  1. Show Me A Dinosaur – Show Me A Dinosaur: 9/10
  2. Chance The Rappers – Coloring Book: 8/10
  3. Hotel Books – Run Wild, Stay Alive: 7/10
  4. In Hearts Wake and Northlane – Equinox: 8/10
  5. Little Brother – Cleveland, OH: 8/10
  6. Michael Barr – Back Home EP: 9/10
  7. Darkthrone – Artic Thunder: 8/10
  8. WHENINROME – Half – Hearted: 7/10
  9. Wormed – Krighsu: 8/10
  10. Pity Sex – White Hot Moon: 8/10

This week a new segment is getting introduced on Erik’s Album Reviews called “The Thursday Ten”.  Every week on Thursday ten albums will be given a quick rating of a whole number out of 10.  These albums are listened to 1-2 times through max and will not have any other description besides their numerical rating.  However, it is common that an album mentioned on “The Thursday Ten” will later get a 500 word album review or a full album review.  Also if you would like a more in depth review for an album or have a different opinion on the ratings let us know in the comments or shoot us an email!  But regardless, here is the first ever post for “The Thursday Ten”:

  1.  Arbes – Swimmer: 10/10
  2. Void Omnia – Dying Light: 8/10
  3. Taking Back Sunday – Tidal Wave: 8/10
  4. Danny Brown – Really Doe (feat. Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Earl Sweatshirt) *single/not an album*: 9/10
  5. Frank Ocean – Blonde: 7/10
  6. Young Thug – Jeffery: 8/10
  7. West Berlin – The Northern Misery: 8/10
  8. Trophy Eyes – Chlorine: 9/10 – Heaven Sent: 8/10 *singles/not an album*
  9. Deafheaven – New Bermuda: 6/10
  10. Aborted – Retrogore: 8/10

 

There are too many releases listed to post videos and links for every single one, however, every single album rated can be heard on Spotify, Youtube, or Bandcamp.  Make sure to give these records a listen and let us know what albums should make it onto the list for next week’s “The Thursday Ten”!
