Hey, it's 2020! Time for a new thread :)
^^ Great way to start the year. Mine was the 30th anniversary deluxe edition of:
Self titled from 1992. Can't believe this album came out during the height of the Grunge sound on the radio, completely different vibe.
Pink Floyd Venice 1989 from the Later Years box on Blu ray
I finished catching up on the Watchmen HBO series, and the final song made me break out this gem
Polyphia - New Levels New Devils (2018)
Bitte Orca | Dirty Projectors
That clumsy-sounding title is a reference to a line uttered by John Huston in the film Chinatown: "Politicians, ugly buildings and whores all get respectable if they last long enough."
The Spine That Binds, by Tsunami Bomb

Rental!! Eviction!! | Asian Man Records - Bruce Lee Band
Very short album, so Mike (owner of Asian Man record label and lead singer of Bruce Lee Band) included an older EP on the B Side of the album:
No Man-Love You To Bits
Allegaeon - Apoptosis
Wow. Wow wow wow. Been looking for some new American metal and here is a Colorado (of all places) band that is an absolute gem. Apoptosis is the most recent release and is an amazing combination of speed, tech, and melodic metal. If you go back through Allegaeon's catalog, there is a lot to like but you can clearly see it building to this point--a powerful demonstration of this band's formidable musical talents. Among the thrashing they also find time here for welcome interludes that show a softer side and clear influence from classical guitar.
And as hard as these guys hit the instruments, the other amazing thing is--they're freaking science nerds! All of the songs are about concepts in biology, chemistry, astronomy, cosmology, evolution, and all the ways those things tie together in human development or demise. It's too bad that the lyrics as sung are not always easy to understand, because as I read along they're so thoughtful and compelling in ways that really speak to my interests, which tend to be aligned with all of the aforementioned.
Best metal album of 2019.
Thanks for the tip!
