    Broken Machine is great. I'm grateful for knowing more music through both LPA and music reviews channels.
    I still have to listen to Connect The Dots, though. For some reason I can't listen to more than 4 new albums a day.

    So. I can't in good faith listen to Brand New's album anymore without thinking of what was revealed about Jesse, and feeling completely disgusted. Therefore I have to strike the band from my lists entirely.

    This is the last update I'm giving for the year. I think I'm pretty much ready to put together a ranked list, probably just a top 5, so I'll be doing that soon
    I don't think that's really a fair way to judge whose music is "genuine" and whose isn't - hell, what does "genuine" even mean here?

    If you'd like a rap album with a bit of introspection, one that I might recommend is NF's "Perception"
