Matt has been reviewing for PopMatters for only a short while, but he’s been obsessed with music ever since he started forming memories. He watches way more TV and Netflix than he ever reads, but when he does read, he reads Bill Simmons’ Grantland. He contributes to MVREMIX, as well as writes for his own blog, The-lysine-contingency.tumblr.com. He resides in Los Angeles.

It's All Right, It's All Right, Alllllll Right: U2's 'Achtung Baby'

Pretty much everyone under the age of 35 views U2 as a bunch of overzealous assholes, but this 25-year-old can't help but still blast the group's 1991 masterpiece.

Marc Carroll: In Silence

A couple of tracks stand out on their own, but In Silence, as a whole, is an awkward hodgepodge of Irish folk music and sappy piano ballads.

Deer Tick: Divine Providence

There's a lack of musical exploration here, but the Providence alt-country rockers embrace their love for booze and rebellion more than ever on this record.

Hurricane Bells: Tides and Tales

Their song "Monsters" got them noticed off the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack, but it's doubtful their sophomore album will turn many heads.

Dirty Projectors and Björk: Mount Wittenberg Orca

It's been out digitally for over a year now with proceeds having gone to charity. So now that the money isn't even for a good cause, why buy an underwhelming seven-track EP?

Toro y Moi: Freaking Out EP

Energy is at an all-time high for Toro y Moi mastermind Chaz Bundick, who spikes these tunes with MJ-like vigor.
