The Albums That Shaped The Last Decade

Okay, so I’m back! This post is very much just personal opinion but I’m going to include some cult classics for many emo kids and my personal ones too. So let’s get into this 🤙🏻

Collide With The Sky by Pierce The Veil. A classic for lil emo kids, including Bulls In The Bronx and King For A Day I think a lot of people can agree this was a cult classic and a must-have. 

Let’s Cheers to This by Sleeping With Sirens. Again like CWTS it’s a cult classic and an emo staple. I was more of a SWS kids rather than PTV but I loved them both. It was the soundtrack to my emo days that I really haven’t left. 

Free by Twin Atlantic. This was such a staple for me and it was the album that got me into Twin and I haven’t really looked back since. It’s just such a classic in my opinion from Free to Cherry Slut to We Want Better, Man (which personally I still think is very relevant). 

Fools and Worthless Liars by Deaf Havana. What an album! You’ve got I’m A Bore, Mostly and Youth In Retrospect, The Past Six Years. It’s just such a classic album and next year it turns 10. It’s just a cult classic for me. 

What Separates Me From You by A Day To Remember. Who hasn’t screamed to All I Want though? It's one of those albums that just slaps so hard! It's full of classics like All I Want, All Signs Point To Lauderdale to It's Complicated, Still. I love ADTR and this album was such a cult classic for them in my opinion. 

The American Dream by Trophy Eyes, now, going to be controversial here but I do prefer TAD to Chemical Miracle, it's just full of big sad pop punk bops. You've got Friday Forever, More Like You, You Can Count On Me, just a lot of big sad bops. And it just slaps so hard and I don't think you can hate this album because it's just THAT good. 

Sinners Never Sleep by You Me At Six. Again another classic, that little 12 year old loved and 20 (okay we're three weeks off but shush) year old me still loves. You've got Loverboy, Bite My Tongue, Crash (come on what lil emo kid didn't cry to this?) and the biggest bop of them all Reckless.

The Finer Things by State Champs arguably their best album but they're all great, but this one had Elevated, Hard To Please, Remedy and my personal favourite Prepare to Be Noticed. I can't love Champs especially this album because it's just that good and it was one of the best of the decade. 

Enemy Of The World by Four Year Strong, I am going to include another FYS album on here as well, but not yet. But right back at the start of the decade we had this album come out and it's most notable track was It Must Really Suck To Be Four Year Strong Right Now and honestly, that song is just legendary even just for the title. It also included Wasting Time (Eternal Summer) which is my big mood at every guy I've ever dated.

GLA by Twin Atlantic. It was just that album, it was dark, it was powerful, and it sent a message especially with Mothertongue. But it also had No Sleep and my favourite The Chaser, it was full of big arena-sized tracks that made you want to scream, and it really did add to this decade with music.

Nothing I Write You Can Change What You've Been Through by Trash Boat. I love Trash Boat a lot, and I think this album is a clear indication as to why I love Trash Boat. You've got How Selfish I Seem, Tring Quarry and most notably the track where the title comes from Brave Face. It's a very well crafted album and it slaps so hard!

Four Year Strong by Four Year Strong. Now this was the other album I wanted to mention, because it does deserve a place here, and it's such a strong, powerful album that I think has to be a staple. You've got We All Float Down Here, you've got Go Down In History and even Who Cares? (which I believe this song said a hell of a lot) and my personal favourite I Hold Myself in Contempt. 

These are the albums that for me, shaped the past decade, and I'd love to know if you agree with any of them or what your albums of the decade are!

Demon on the Run by Four Thousand Miles

  After what feels like forever (when in reality it's only been 6 months), Four Thousand Miles are back! Because it's been so long, and I know over the past few months there's been a big increase in the traffic to this blog, and there are new readers, let me just give you a brief recap on who 4KM are!   Four Thousand Miles are an international rock band, and their name comes from the fact that between Alex M and Lionel there's 4000 miles!  The band consists of;  Alex F - Vocals and guitar Lionel - Guitar Alex M - Drums  Liam - Bass They now have 3 tracks out, Lonely, Reflections and the brand new track Demon on the Run!  For anybody that cares, Four Thousand Miles are my joint-favourite small band and I would probably sell a few organs for them, also will eventually get a tattoo for them when little miss rona decides to leave us all alone.  Anyway, let's get into the thoughts on the new song!  I was super hyped for this song to drop, and I just knew they wouldn'

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now
