Album Cover, if applicable.
Album/Track, Average Rating (out of five stars, rounded to nearest half), Notes.


As I Am, ★★★★.
Notes: I don't know that I've ever listened to this all the way through! I love Alicia Keys, though, so it was a treat.
Best track: Wreckless Love.
Worst track: Like You'll Never See Me Again.

-

Smooth Criminal, ★★★½.
Notes: One of those few covers that blow the original out of the water. Yeah, I said it.

-

Drive My Rocket Up Uranus, ★★★½.
Notes: Ah, Alien Sex Fiend. I delight in your completely inappropriate- well- everything, I guess.

-


Singles 1983-1995, ★★★★.
Notes: I on't really care for compilation albums on the whole, but Alien Sex Fiend is kind of hard to come by in any form. One of the very few deathrock bands I listen to, surprisingly enough; it's pretty much this and Christian Death. I guess I tend towards the post-punk end of the spectrum more.
Best track: Walk the Line.
Worst track: Smells Like....

-


Crimson, ★★★.
Notes: Christ, I'm getting old. This is one of those albums I know every word of every song to, without knowing that I knew them, haha. I don't listen to it as often lately, but, you know. Still fun, in a nostalgic way.
Best track: Mercy Me.
Worst track: Prevent This Tragedy.

-


From Here to Infirmary, ★★½.
Notes: Ehhh. This was an okay album. Not my favourite.
Best track: Armageddon.
Worst track: Steamer Trunk.

-


Goddamnit, ★★★★.
Notes: Favouite Alkaline Trio album everrr.
Best track: Nose Over Tail.
Worst track: Enjoy Your Day.

-


Good Mourning, ★★.
Notes: Pretty much a less catchy Crimson. Ended up deleting.
Best track: Doesn't matter.
Worst track: Matters less.

-


Maybe I'll Catch Fire, ★★★.
Notes: This one is closer to Goddamnit. I like it.
Best track: 5-3? 10-4.
Worst track: Madame Me.

-

Various Covers by Alkaline Trio, ★★.
Notes: Cut Here, a cover of The Cure, and Wake Up Exhausted, a Tegan & Sara cover. Neither of these covers does the memory of the original justice. I used to be in the business of collecting covers. I deleted a large percentage of the ones I had when I went on an AFI-deleting rampage after doing the album reviews the other day.

-


So Wrong, It's Right, ★★½.
Notes: Not nearly as good as when I, you know, actually liked it. Keeping for the roadtrip. Hoping I don't have to play it too much, though.
Best track: Remembering Sunday.
Worst track: This is How We Do.

-

Various Tracks by All Time Low, ★★½.
Notes: Painting Flowers, Umbrella (Rihanna), Running from Lions, Hello Brooklyn. I WENT THROUGH A PHASE, OKAY.

-

A Lotta Nerve, ★★★.
Notes: Came with a Drive-Thru Records sampler that came with the Hellogoodbye album.

-


Who Killed Amanda Palmer, ★★★★.
Notes: Wow, finally an album I still listen to on a regular basis. Kick ass.
Best track: Astronaut.
Worst track: Ampersand.

-


Armchair Apocrypha, ★★★★½.
Notes: An album I should listen to more of, and did somewhat recently. Highest album rating so far, yeh yeh.
Best track: Simple X. I basically closed my eyes and pointed.
Worst track: Nothing qualifies.
