'Manifest' by Amaranthe. I've put off this one for whatever stupid reason. Absolutely fell in love with them after hearing "Drop Dead Cynical" a few years back and they were actually the first concert I ever attended. This album is going to have to get a 6 out of 10, though. It feels like too much of more of the same from the last go around with "Helix". Niles is a fine replacement but I miss Jake as time goes on. Elize is still the goddess that she is and I don't foresee that changing anytime soon.

Touche Amore - Lament 6.8/10

It doesn't touch their previous album, Stage 4, which was a great record with a real emotional punch (lead singer coming to terms with the death of his Mum from cancer), and it is not as good as Survived By either. Perhaps I'm just growing out of the band.

Ulrika Boden - Valje a Vrake 8/10

An early solo album from one of the vocalists of the Swedish folk group, Ranarim, which is also very much in the Scandinavian folk vein. I love her voice.

Pink Elephant by Stand Atlantic: 6/10

I was actually supposed to see these guys in the summer. I barely discovered them late last year and they seemed alright. This album is the usual standard pop-punk stuff in the same vein as New Found Flory with two standout songs: "Drink to Drown", a nice little piano ballad, and "Wavelength", which has some energy and neat use of vocal editing that I'm not usually a fan of but it's fine here. I can't call these guys one of my favorites but who knows in the future. I'm a sucker for women like Bonnie Fraser.

Enkel - We Are Enkel 8/10
The second album by the all female Finnish folk group, and it feels a bit more accessible, but no less adventurous, than their first record. It is definitely on par with their first album. If you like folk music, check them out.

Men at Work - Cargo 8/10
A quality 80s pop album; the song Overkill is the standout track, but there are no weak tracks on the record.

Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects - Sol Niger Within 7.5/10
A solo album from one of Meshuggah's guitarists, and sounds like a mixture of the aforementioned band with a bit of Dream Theater and other prog influences; if you like Meshuggah, you'll like this record.

Cellar Darling - The Spell 7/10

Female-fronted rock band that sounds musically like Alter Bridge (minus the constant guitar solo wankery) with a bit of folk (a hurdy gurdy is one of the main instruments) and prog mixed in. I like the music and the vocal performance, but the lyrics are a bit iffy at times, which stops me from giving the album a higher mark.

Pauliina Syrjälä - Lunkula 8/10

Instrumental album composed of just a Saarijärvi kantele; the artist delivers on making a solo instrumental record tuneful while also experimenting with the different sounds that can be gotten out of the instrument. The record is only around 40 mins long, so it doesn't out stay its welcome, which can sometimes be a problem with solo instrumental albums.

Korpiklaani - Kulkija 7/10

Finnish folk-metal; I don't have any of their other albums to compare it against, but apparently this is their "mature" album; it is definitely less punky than some of their other stuff I've heard. I enjoyed it, but I don't know if I'd buy another one of their albums.

Minnie Riperton - Adventures in Paradise 7.7/10

Mellow but sexy; Riperton has a lovely voice.

Loituma - Into the Moonlight 7.5/10

Finnish folk music.

Arja Kastinen - The Last Gathering 8/10

A record of solo kantele music; you would be surprised at the variety of sounds she gets out of the different kanteles she uses, which keeps the album interesting throughout.

Pauanne - Pauanne 7.5/10

A mixture of Finnish folk music and poppy electronica, with added field recordings and a bit of artiness on top.

Lafayette Afro Rock Band - Soul Makossa 7/10

Funk-Jazz; reminded me somewhat of Santana, minus the searing hot solos and the Latin rhythms.

Wardruna - Kvitravn 8.5/10

They aren't really doing anything different to what was present on their Runaljod trilogy, but it is so good and I think their best album yet.

Nothing - The Great Dismal 8/10

I don't usually pay much attention to Mitch's music suggestions, but this is a very enjoyable album to listen to. A mixture of My Bloody Valentine and Failure/Autolux and some other influences. Not original, but worth a listen.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Emerson, Lake and Palmer 8/10

Keys-led jazz-prog with some tasty drumming; if you like prog, you'll like this record.

Emmanuelle Parrenin - Maison Rose 8.5/10

What starts off as a regular French folk album slowly morphs into something a bit weirder and artier; it also seems rather timeless to me, as you wouldn't suspect the album was recorded in the mid 1975.

Pallbearer - Heartless 7.5/10

Hard rock/metal with long song structures; not technical enough to fall under prog or any of the other arty forms of metal.

Mastodon - Leviathan 7.5/10

I'm not sure why I've stayed away from this album for the past 15 years or so, but I enjoyed it. The only problem is that the most memorable thing about the record is the drumming; without that particular drummer, the score would probably be less.

The Indestructible Beat of Soweto - Volume One 7.5/10

The album that inspired Paul Simon's Graceland record.

Commodores - Movin' On 7.5/10

A solid RnB record.
