Boredom has set in...
25. The Birthday Party
I really don't like Nick Cave's later work and his voice verges on annoying a lot for me.
24. Yeah Yeah Yeahs
I despise "Fever to Tell", I only like one or two songs off of it. Plus I don't understand why so many people love "Maps" so much.
23. Spank Rock
There's nothing bad that can be said about Spank Rock... except if I wanted to be really critical I could that some of their lyrics make them out to be misogynist pigs.
22. The Faint
All of their songs are about sex but they don't seem like the kind of guys that get laid very often.
21. Xiu Xiu
I don't really listen to ol' Xiu Xiu that much anymore but I still love them. If only Jamie Stewart wasn't so whiny and clingy sounding.
20. Dalek I Love You
Again, don't listen to these guys as much as I used too but it really sucks that they never became big, since they're really good at what they do.
Her voice can be very shrill and grating at times.
18. Straight Reads the Line
They are way better live then on recording.
I find that I really miss old Placebo these days, they are no where as good as they were before "Meds".
16. The Jesus and Mary Chain
"Darklands" was sort of a disappointment for me, they just aren't as good without all the walls of sound. Hell, its sort of sad to say that an artist is better when you can't hear them properly.
I can only listen to them sometimes + "Fade to Grey" is garbage.
I love almost everything by this band minus a couple of songs, mainly "Paco".
13. The Organ
Well I would say that I was pissed when they broke up but I heard they're back together and making a new album which makes me REALLY happy. What I don't like about them is how short their album was! Just a bit over a half hour. Thats crazy!
12. Joy Division
I know I might get some flack for this but I find them at times to be really boring. Sure JD is a great band and has some truly great songs but songs like "Passover" tarnish an almost perfect discography. Plus I find it sort of tacky that they named themselves after a groups of women in concentration camps that were pimped out to Nazis. Just saying...
11. Daisy Chainsaw
My only criticism of Daisy Chainsaw is how they broke up and became Queen Adreena. I like Queen Adreena but to me they are no where as good as Daisy Chainsaw.
I'm not big on this new disco sound they have now but they still are a really great band.
9. Between the Buried and Me
I love BTBAM but only in small amounts. I'm not used to 14 minute songs like the majority of songs on "Colors" but I'm trying to deal.
8. The Holly Springs Disaster
This band is pretty much perfection, I don't know what to say about them.
7. Patrick Wolf
I have to take points off for dying your hair orange, making proclamations about being bisexual, being eccentric and campy and being very skinny and pale. Sound familiar? It would be really easy to write him off as a Bowie copy cat.
6. Final Fantasy (Owen Pallet)
I can't really think of anything negative to say about him. He's too awesome.
I tend to like their straightforward songs a lot more then their weird, arty songs. As for their new album I'm not really sure if I like it that much yet, I haven't really given it a chance but so far so good I guess.
4. Crystal Castles
No matter what anyone says about their recent controversies, people seem to forget that there has been far more artists then them that have illegally sampled other people's music not to mention artists who have stolen other people's art for promotion. That being said, I will admit that they do come off as really pretentious in interviews which might bite them in the ass if they don't cut the shit but they defiantly have a lot of potential.
3. David Bowie
Why did you contribute vocals to that horrible Scarlett Johansson album? I miss YOUR work, you haven't released an album in five years.
2. The Blood Brothers
I hate to say this but I don't really like Cody's and Johnny's new band Jaguar Love... even though I'm hopefully seeing them in a couple of weeks with The Faint and Genghis Tron. Other then that I really wish you didn't break up...
1. Siouxsie & The Banshees
I have to say, before I really wasn't digging Siouxsie's solo album but its grown on me a lot. With that said, I don't understand why a lot of SATB fans love Kiss in the Dreamhouse so much. Its one of my least favorite albums by them.Siouxsie & The BansheesThe Birthday PartyYeah Yeah YeahsThe FaintSpank RockXiu XiuDalek I Love YouBishiStraight Reads The LinePlaceboThe Jesus and Mary ChainVisageLadytronThe OrganJoy DivisionDaisy ChainsawChromaticsBetween the Buried and MeThe Holly Springs DisasterPatrick WolfFinal FantasyBauhausCrystal CastlesDavid BowieThe Blood Brothers
