43.) Boris – New Album
Japanese titans Boris released three new albums in 2011. Unfortunately, two of them were uneven, unbalanced, and at times forgettable. Their third (and least-anticipated) is literally titled New Album, and it sees Boris trying their hand at a new sound: J-Pop. Specifically, this album is composed of re-workings of other Boris songs, only arranged through a J-Pop meets pop-rock sound and structure. “Flare” steamrolls ahead with a chorus as catchy as the pop guitars are furious; “Black Original” takes cues from Dir en Grey-style visual kei; “Looprider” tries to achieve a sort of heaviness through shine and gloss. It’s all very unusual and very fun.
