Yakuza - Samsara album cover

Yakuza

Samsara, 2006

8.8 / 10

Chicago's Yakuza, despite two previous albums and a deal with Century Media, have not received much attention for their brand of chaotic metal. Bearing likeness to bands such as Naked ...

Yaphet Kotto/This Machine Kills/Envy - Split album cover

Yaphet Kotto/This Machine Kills/Envy

Split, 2004

6.0 / 10

Whenever I listen to the type of record that Yaphet Kotto or Envy would make, I always play the TV at full volume to supplement the chaos. Sometimes I'll change ...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Mosquito album cover

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Mosquito, 2013

6.5 / 10

Part of me has waited so long to review the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s fourth album, Mosquito because I really don’t want to pan the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. In fact, I’d like to ...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones album cover

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Show Your Bones, 2006

7.5 / 10

In wake of the hurricane of hype that followed the landing of The Strokes, I did my best knee jerk reaction in 2002 and flat out dismissed the Yeah Yeah ...

Year of No Light - Ausserwelt album cover

Year of No Light

Ausserwelt, 2010

8.0 / 10

Ausserwelt is the sophomore album from Year Of No Light following up their excellent debut, Nord; and while this outfit took a bit of time in between the two records, evidently ...

Year of No Light - Tocsin album cover

Year of No Light

Tocsin, 2013

9.0 / 10

Year Of No Light’s emotive instrumental approach is one that embraces the deeper, heavier side of post/sludge/atmospheric music and the cavernous melodies that they dredge up from the darkest pits ...

Year Of The Goat - Angels' Necropolis album cover

Year Of The Goat

Angels' Necropolis, 2012

8.5 / 10

Year of the Goat haven’t had the best of starts in life – injury, great upheaval, internal friction and possibly more has meant that the Swedish quintet have had to ...

Year of the Rabbit - Year of the Rabbit album cover

Year of the Rabbit

Year of the Rabbit, 2003

7.0 / 10

Before I even begin to go in depth about Year of the Rabbit's major-label debut I want to get one thing clear. I find it unfair to make comparisons and ...

Years from Now - We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat album cover

Years from Now

We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat, 2007

8.0 / 10

I have to admit, Years from Now do shed a tiny bit of warm sunlight into the dank black empty soul of this jaded hardcore scenester in more ways than ...

Those of you who read my "Top 5 Awesome Bands SPB Got Into in 2005" feature in the end of the year recap, might remember my mention of Years from ...

Yes - Fly From Here album cover

Yes

Fly From Here, 2011

6.5 / 10

I wasn't even aware Yes was still together at this point, let alone technically the same band. I guess as long as Chris Squire is playing bass somewhere on the ...

Yesterday's Ring - Diamonds in the Ditch album cover

Yesterday's Ring

Diamonds in the Ditch, 2009

7.1 / 10

Some folks they tell me: "You just can’t play country / You’re a stupid young punk and you’re from Montreal” / But I’ll still make you cry with that song. ...

Yob - Clearing the Path to Ascend album cover

Yob

Clearing the Path to Ascend, 2014

9.0 / 10

YOB has been a constant force in the doom metal field. Since their first release, Elaborations of Carbon, they have not ever really disappointed me. Releasing records year after year, ...

Yog - Years of Nowhere album cover

Yog

Years of Nowhere, 2009

7.5 / 10

Grind and technical metal are difficult types of music to pull off well as they are the kind of music that have rich histories of excellent examples of bands who ...

You Lose! - All In album cover

You Lose!

All In, 2008

7.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

I guarantee of two things after you listen to All In from You Lose! First off, you’ll never guess this band is from France. Secondly, you’ll be amped up and ...

You May Die in the Desert - Bears in the Yukon album cover

You May Die in the Desert

Bears in the Yukon, 2008

5.9 / 10
