Green Day and More

Probably the best album to ever be released by the Foo Fighters, "The Colour & The Shape" further solidified Dave Grohl stepping out of grunge's shadow and making peace with the ghost of Kurt Cobain. Just about all the songs here on this album are catchy and seem made for radio friendly, but underneath that surface is a demonically comical feel combined with a lot of emotion. More from Foo Fighters
How do these guys do it!? after almost 20 years they make possibly their best CD ever, either this or Ixnay is the best! And the critic reviews aren't as bad as people say, they are all 3/5 or a "B", those aren't bad even tho this CD deserves way more. Only a band like the Offspring can make great music after this long while changing their style but holding on to their roots. more from The Offspring
These guys were a great band and it would be sweet to seem them come back together again. I now own every Dispatch CD, but this one is like a greatest hits compilation, every tune is THAT good. They are the best indie rock band I've ever heard and likely the best I'll ever hear. hypnotic and intelligent rap-like tunes. The only thing is how their stuff never made it to the airwaves, it's better than 99.9% of the stuff out there. other Indie bands like O.A.R. and Guster, those bands just can't measure up to Dispatch. Check them out.
Fans of Willy Porter, Ben Harper, and G. Love will all want to check out Jack Johnson's engaging folk- and blues-inflected pop. Born in Oahu, Hawaii, Johnson, a former surfer and film-school graduate, has a knack for acoustic ballads whose calm surfaces hide a subtle but strong lyrical undertow. "It seems to me that 'maybe' pretty much always means 'no,'" sings Johnson on "Flake," which features crony Harper on slide guitar.> AllMusic by Jack Johnson
Linkin Park’s second studio effort (not counting the 2002 remix album Reanimation) overflows with glossy production values and Big Rock oomph, fully embracing the pop instincts of their Hybrid Theory debut. For many, Theory sounded inexcusably corporate, from its too-timely rap-rock sound to the long list of product endorsements included in the liner notes. More from Linkin Park
It's a totally different sound than their previous albums. Not only a different sound, but different themes as well. This CD you can relate to on so many levels, and that is why you'll love it so much. The 80's feel that a lot of the songs on the album have is great and is a different twist for the band. 2 tracks that stand out are "Always" and "All of This" with The Cure's Robert Smith. It's sooo hard to choose a favorite because they all rock! Every track is amazing. more from Blink 182
With valuable assistance from producer Rick Rubin, the Peppers find just the right blend of punk, funk, and hip-hop. Even with a running time of 74 minutes, this 1991 breakthrough has continuity and cohesion both within and across the 17 cuts.More from Red Hot Chilli Peppers
As the vitriol spewed from Evil Empire, Rage Against the Machine's long-awaited follow up to their 1993 debut owes much to Chuck D.'s polemic fury and rapid-fire urgency--though as always the band rages without hip-hop machinery in favor of the heavy-duty power tools of rock. More from Rage Against the Machine
Nevermind's tears out of the speakers like a cannonball, from the punk-turbo-charged riff of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" onward, magnifying and distilling the wounded rage of 15 years of the rock underground into a single impassioned roar. Few albums have occupied the cultural consciousness like this one. More from Nirvana
Buena Vista Social Club
Buena Vista Social Club's self titled first album is musical excellence. Focusing predominantly on son, a traditional Cuban musical form, BVSC delivers, and with spectacular results. This collaborative masterpiece between BVSC and Ry Cooder simply must be experienced.
