Overloaded?? You only listened to about 15 albums tops.. I hit 50 every month more or less.
I've said before, I don't see any way I could properly judge that much music in such a short period of time. Throwing aside the crap is easy, but to really get a sense of which ones I love, and which ones are pleasant but inessential, I need to give them a good number of listens. Each of the top four or so this month, I will have spun at least ten times.

There's not enough time in my day to give that kind of attention to more than one or two good ones per week. The only way I could is if I do nothing but listen to new music all day, every day. I can't do that, nor do I want to. I average around three albums throughout the course of a day, so if I'm going to give the good ones enough spins to feel good about judging, and still fit in older ones when the mood strikes me, there isn't space for me to listen through to another thirty records in a month.

I'll listen to a bunch of singles or samples, but if I don't hear anything that tells me the record will either be good, or at least interesting in some fashion, I'm going to set it aside. I have other things I want to do besides sift through average albums.
Alter Bridge - Walk The Sky
Not quite getting the fact that people are saying this is more hard rock. The guitar is dense and bludgeoning as fuck at times.
Yes, but the playing on the last couple of albums was more intricate, with more metal right hand playing, in particular. The sound is still heavy, but the way the riffs are constructed is more rock than metal this time.
