The title of this episode is a bit of a generalization, but in one way or another, all the albums we covered the week missed the mark. That’s not to say they were bad…it just means that in some aspect, they didn’t quite reach the excellence they could have or maybe meant to. The opinion of what that aspect is, however, is a little different depending on which host you ask. And you just said, “Wait, Nick and Brian disagreed on something?” Yes, we did! A little bit. I wouldn’t get to excited if I were you, but yeah, it happened. One of the times it happens this week is when decided to discuss Revolver’s 10 Essential Nu-Metal Albums. Yeah, we went there…because we lived through it and own them all. So do you (probably). Don’t lie.
