Default Recommend An Album

I thought this would be a great thread to recommend albums you enjoy & would like to turn other listeners onto.

Here's a great release I'd recommend

Dead Sara - Dead Sara - 2012 - Genre Hard Rock - Metal

Dead Sara is a hard rock band from Los Angeles, consisting of Emily Armstrong (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Sean Friday (drums, backing vocals), Siouxsie Medley (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Chris Null (bass guitar, backing vocals) best known currently for their single "Weatherman" of their debut eponymous album Dead Sara (2012).[1]

Dead Sara received the "Best New Rock Group" award at the “3rd annual Vegas Rocks! Magazine Awards 2012” on August 26, 2012. They were also nominated for a RadioContraband Rock Radio Award as "Indie Artist of the Year" 2012 [2] and were crowned the 98.7 FM 2012 Close to Home Artist of the Year by defeating No Doubt in the final round of fan voting.

"Weatherman" topped Loudwire's "10 Best Rock Songs of 2012" list beating bands like Three Days Grace, Stone Sour and Deftones to the title.[3]

Good idea. I think it would be helpful if you put in a little more info on each post too. Perhaps similar artists and what genre? That allows people to get a feel for what the recommended album is going to be like. I'll give that album you recommended a try though, and give a selection of my own later.

Talking Re: Recommend A Album

Goodie Mob - Soul Food (1995)
Genre: Hip-Hop




One of my absolute favorite southern hip-hop albums. Only Aquemini and The Fix come close in my book. This built off the momentum from Outkast's debut album and played a major part in popularizing the Dungeon Family style. The lyrics mostly deal with social issues and introspection, but despite dealing with some pretty heavy subject matter, it manages to be uplifting at the same time. The guest appearances all come from other Dungeon Family members (most notably Andre 3000 on Thought Process and Big Boi on Dirty South), so they mesh very well and don't sound at all out of place.

The group itself delivered as well, but Cee-Lo especially shined on this album, stealing the show on pretty much every track. (For the record, his verse on Thought Process is one of my absolute favorites.) The production style is unique, but still sounds distinctly southern. All in all, I'd call it a must-listen for hip-hop fans. If you're not a fan, I doubt this'll change that, but the heavy social themes and introspection could give you a different perspective towards the genre, especially the southern scene (which often gets blasted for containing a lot of materialistic and violent themes). I'd call it a 10/10.

tl;dr: It's really good.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Failure were kind of a mix between the alt-rock/grunge of the early 90s, and the type of concepts and 'space-iness' of Pink Floyd and 70s prog, I think the Paramore and A Perfect Circle covers of some of their songs got fairly popular so maybe you've heard those, but most likely not the band themselves. There's a theme to the album, the most popular theory is the stages of the protagonist's heroin addiction, broken up by 3 segues. That's all irrelevant for now though, just check out some songs and if you like it, delve into the album. It's a massive grower so if you dig it now, you'll adore it in a year.







Heliotropic & Daylight at the end of the album are probably my favourite tracks, and the best way to end the record. Saturday Saviour, Stuck On You, Pillowhead and The Nurse Who Loved Me are probably the wisest places to start listening.

I listened to that Dead Sara album OP, and I was pretty impressed. The lead singer's vocals were especially good and it was refreshing to hear a female vocalist that really packed a punch with her vocals and lyrics. Solid album, I'm sure I'll give it another listen soon.

I'm going to try out NoGimmicksNeeded request first, as Failure sound like a band I'll really enjoy since you described them as "a mix between the alt-rock/grunge of the early 90s, and the type of concepts and 'space-iness' of Pink Floyd and 70s prog." Sounds great.

There a great live band. Seen them about 6 months ago in L.A. They did a great cover of Rage Against The Machine's Killing In The Name. Check them out live if you get a chance

Here's another one that I like alot

Iced Earth - Dystopia - 2011 - Genre - Heavy metal, Power Metal, Thrash metal, Progressive Metal



They remind me of a heavier Iron Maiden on the fast stuff & Queensryche on the mellower songs

This is write up about the album from wikipedia

Dystopia is the tenth studio album by American heavy metal band Iced Earth. Released on October 17, 2011, it was the band's first album to feature vocalist Stu Block, who joined after previous vocalist Matt Barlow left the band. Dystopia was also the last Iced Earth album to feature bassist Freddie Vidales, who left the band on April 13, 2012.[2]

The album was recorded during the summer of 2011 at Morrisound Recording, with co-producer Jim Morris. While not a concept album, many of the album's songs are inspired by dystopian themes and films,[3] very much like the group's 2001 album Horror Show, which was largely inspired by horror films and other similar subjects.[4] Two songs off of Dystopia (the title track and "Tragedy and Triumph") feature the return of rhythm guitarist Jon Schaffer's Something Wicked concept, which has appeared on many of the band's previous albums.[3]

During its first week, the album sold over 6,000 copies in the United States and charted in eight countries, including Germany, Finland and the UK.[5][6][7] The album was met with a very positive response, with some critics calling it one of Iced Earth's best albums.[8][9] Many also praised Stu Block's performance and wide vocal range. Dystopia was followed by an extensive world tour which included dates in countries that Iced Earth had never played before, including Cyprus, China and Australia.[10][11]

Check out a couple tracks

Cool thread, here's what I got.



Alter Bridge's Blackbird - Hard Rock, Alternative Rock, Alternative Metal, Heavy Metal.

Now, it is hard for me to describe similar bands to them. I would say something like a mixture between Shinedown, Slash, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, and some of the current hard rock bands and past rock bands. This band, imo, is like a melting pot regarding everything that has to do with hard rock music.

Ok, give me a moment. For me, I think this is probably the best album ever. This album has a nice blend of everything that has to do with rock music. There's some heavy songs, soft songs, songs that makes you think about life and everything around it, and some pretty good radio-listening singles. Musically, there are two key elements to notice to really enjoy this album: Mark Tremonti's guitar work and his guitar solos, and Myles Kennedy's voice and his most distinctive notes.

Out of the great songs on this album, I would highly recommend Blackbird, the title track. This eight minute song symbolizes everything great about this band. The main highlights of that song are the two guitar solos played back-to-back by Kennedy and Tremonti, respectively.

Other recommendations would be Come to Life, Brand New Start, Watch Over You, White Knuckles, Wayward One etc. Essentially, this album is so damn consistently good. I highly recommend listening to it to hard rock fans and general music fans.
