8 Dic 2008, 20:34 de CaptainGaylordbear in mind there's a ton of albums that came out this year that i haven't heard, also many that i KNOW i need to hear, like the new Sigur Ros. ....why haven't i heard that, anyway?
the hell is my problem...
anyway. on we go. aren't you excited?
25. Friendly Fires - Friendly Fires
awesome! finally an indie band that's not married to either the dance-punk sound or the "look how depressed i am" sound or the cookie cutter indie alternative sound. loves it.
current favorites: In the Hospital, Skeleton Boy
24. Shiny Toy Guns - Season of Poison
i haven't had much of a chance to listen to this yet, but from what i've heard i can see that the energy from the debut is intact. i do think the addition of heavy guitars was a good idea, it kind of separates them from that whole neo-electro scene they were lumped in with.
current favorites: Ghost Town, Ricochet!
23. Chairlift - Does You Inspire You
damn. i've got to tell you what a loser i felt like when i found out that bruises was in a commercial…

If I had to spend 10 years in space, this would be the minimum musical comfort i'd need.
Not necessarily in chronological order. Although, if i had to pick JUST ONE, it would be Harvest. No doubt about that.
Hendrix and Drake are still missing, can't figure out a better record for them than a 'best of' collection. I'll have to think about this.
Neil Young - Harvest
Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
John Lennon - Live In New York City
Lou Reed & John Cale - Songs For Drella
Marisa Monte - Verde Anil Amarelo Cor De Rosa e Carvao
PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love
PJ Harvey - Rid of Me
Diamanda Galas - Malediction And Prayer
Tom Waits - The Heart of Saturday Night
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Murder Ballads
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Let Love In
Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
Scout Niblett - This Fool Can Die Now
25 Sep 2007, 10:42 de Mark_HWhen rating albums I try to do so in a historical context, that is how an album compares against the entire body of music of similar style. This means that the best album for any given year, which most people would rate with top marks may not receive the same rating in my charts as only the best albums of all time should get the highest ratings... This chart does not include compilations or live albums.
Note: I vote on a bell curve, anything above 6 is really good, anything much below 4 really isn't :D
9+ - Masterpiece
8 - Incredible
7 - Superb
