KFAI - Roar of the Underground
The Darkness - Permission To Land album cover

The Darkness

Permission To Land, 2003

8.0 / 10

The Darkness couldn't have arrived at a more bizarre time in mainstream rock music. With scores of pedantic nü-metallers, insipid garage rock revivalists, and happy-go-lucky mall punks currently occupying the ...

Death Cab For Cutie - Plans album cover

Death Cab For Cutie

Plans, 2005

7.0 / 10

With their fifth full-length, indie music darlings Death Cab for Cutie make the jump from 'the little engine that could,' Barsuk Records, to the big-time of Atlantic Records. But don't ...

Goldie Lookin' Chain - Safe as Fuck album cover

Goldie Lookin' Chain

Safe as Fuck, 2005

3.0 / 10

2004 was an odd year in the United Kingdom. The word 'chav' became part of everyday life, there was an extremely hot summer (the likes of which we had never ...

The Darkness

One Way Ticket to Hell... and Back, 2005

1.0 / 10

There's not much worse than a bad joke, unless it's a bad joke that just won't go away. Let's face it, there are only so many times you can hear ...

Big City Rock - Big City Rock album cover

Big City Rock

Big City Rock, 2006

3.5 / 10

As the saying goes, honesty is the best policy. Honestly, if Big City Rock continues to produce albums like their self-titled debut, they better stick to their day jobs. Lead ...

Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere album cover

Gnarls Barkley

St. Elsewhere, 2006

9.8 / 10

Six months later... what can I possibly say about St. Elsewhere that hasn't already been ejaculated from the unnecessarily verbose ink-members of numerous self-indulgent online music critics? Yes, it's the ...

Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor album cover

Lupe Fiasco

Food & Liquor, 2006

9.4 / 10

"Yes, yes, yes. Guess who's on third? Lupe still like Lupin the Third." Little did we know that our introduction to Lupe Fiasco on Kanye West's "Touch the Sky" was ...

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly

The Chronicles of a Bohemian Teenager, 2006

8.8 / 10

Raise your hands if you've ever spent time as a teenager, on the brink of stepping out into the world at large, uncertain of what awaits you. Keep those hands ...

Shadows Fall - Threads of Life album cover

Shadows Fall

Threads of Life, 2007

4.0 / 10

I have five different CD players, three in my home and two more in cars. The copy of Threads of Life that I received to review wouldn't play in any ...

The Academy Is... - Santi album cover

The Academy Is...

Santi, 2007

7.0 / 10

Something I've always had trouble imagining is five grown men sitting in a room, writing music that directly appeals to fourteen-year-old girls, and being totally happy with themselves. Maybe it's ...

Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet album cover

Porcupine Tree

Fear of a Blank Planet, 2007

8.8 / 10

I've been hoodwinked. Hornswaggled, if you will. Lied to for years. About what, you ask? Well, I'll tell you, you nosey sons of bitches. Porcupine Tree. For years I've had ...

Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple album cover

Gnarls Barkley

The Odd Couple, 2008

9.4 / 10

Since the arrival of the 80’s and the consequent death of the era when there were true funk/soul titans, each passing unit of time discouraged any hope of a similar ...

Death Cab For Cutie

Codes And Keys, 2011

7.0 / 10

With a prolific band like Bellingham, Washington’s Death Cab for Cutie, (Codes and Keys being their seventh studio album release), it’s impossible for fans not to speculate how their newest ...

Portugal. The Man - In The Mountain, In The Cloud album cover

Portugal. The Man

In The Mountain, In The Cloud, 2011

8.0 / 10

Few bands have the creative power, material, and time to put out an album annually since its inception. Portugal. The Man do just this, having released their sixth full length ...

Portugal. The Man - Evil Friends album cover

Portugal. The Man

Evil Friends, 2013

7.1 / 10

Portugal. The Man thrives in a music scene often reluctant of drastic change in a band's sound. Meanwhile, the Alaskan natives have spent the last seven years transcending and switching ...

Skrillex - Recess album cover


Recess, 2014

5.0 / 10

Electronic musician Skrillex’s 2014 debut full length album Recess (released on the Atlantic label) starts with a track called “All’s Fair in Love and Brostep.” That says almost everything one needs to ...

Meg Myers - Make A Shadow album cover

Meg Myers
