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!

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 

Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
