They released it a couple months ago. It's gotten rave reviews but I've just not been able to get into Junius although they released a split with Rosetta that I really want to get my hands on

Junius is the sound I was looking for a long time, loved everything they've done since the start.

I would like to get my hands on that Rosetta split too, as I really like them as well.

If you like Rosetta then check out Light Bearer. They are absolutely incredible

Was Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers that good that it deserved to be at 6 and 9, but not better than the top 5?

yo123 12-18-2011 05:45 PM

It was actually pretty god awful.

I'm not a fan of Wiz, I like a couple of his songs somewhat but not much other than that, but didn't listen to the album, so I couldn't comment on that, just basically making a smartass comment as to why he had it on the list twice.

yo123 12-18-2011 05:48 PM

He had some decent mixtapes earlier in his career, he's pretty atrocious now though.

HawkeyeFan 12-18-2011 05:48 PM

Chelsea Grin - My Damnation

Structures - Divided By

Stray From the Path - Rising Sun

No, you must quote Young, Wild & Free in your status and name a photo album after No Sleep.

josh07039 12-18-2011 08:32 PM
