I love that Lucero album! I'm a bit surprised that apart from me and Romanelli only four other users have it on a yearly chart.


Oracular Spectacular by MGMT

some dot points:

- Kids has been a family favourite in my household of five music lovers, all with different tastes (so five quadrant songs like this one are rare), since it was released
- the album tracks are better than the singles (apart from Kids)
- I like a lot of neo-psychedelia and should have listened to this album sooner
- speaking of which RYM has this totally wrong genre wise - at least in my opinion - should be neo-psychedelia and psych pop as primaries, and synth pop as a secondary - I wouldn't call this indietronica
- side B is slightly better than side A but the whole album is good consistent quality
- this album must have been a huge influence on Pond (one of my favourite current bands)
- I'm even more disappointed with Little Dark Age now that I've heard this album to compare it to
- I'm starting this as an 8/10 for now, and place it 8/17 for 2007, and 92/100 for the 2000's.

Genesis, The Decemberists, or Nirvana? That's a no-brainer Baystate. Bleach!

Boxer by The National

A couple of songs verge on being okay, but to my ears, this is a slew of stuffy, vaguely interesting, secular hymns set against sterile production. I need help understanding why this is so widely popular.

I'm gonna give you Ys and hope for the best, Purple. I'm assuming you've never listened to Joanna Newsom.

Soundbombing by Various Artists

This is a great hip hop mix curated by Evil Dee of "Da Beatminerz". This could be a great gateway for someone into the world of underground 90s hip hop, as a lot of the major players are present here. Some of the tracks I had heard before (my favorite Company Flow track is featured), but I was most interested in some of the Mos Def cuts that I had not heard, which were professional as you would imagine. A great way to grow your hip hop knowledge and appreciation. Only issue would be starting off with RA The Rugged Man, who I love, but his early filthy rapping is not the best way to start of an album.

Jameth, OK, Boxer was not that great, but Liquid Swords should be better. One of my favorite Wu Tang-related albums.

Artesia - Llydaw
Alberich - NATO-Uniformen (Crap, the next 4 hour album)
RLW - Points Of Reference
Susumu Hirasawa- Kyuusai no Gihou
Circulation- Colors

Helm- Impossible Symmetry

On Diamond by On Diamond
Pretty cool little indie pop record. The production and mixing is on point, she has a little monotone voice but it's overshadowed by nice production tricks and ideas. Songs actually aren't that memorable, but they're always interesting enough for me to listen. Occasional sloppy/noisy guitar licks are a nice addition to otherwise pretty quiet and rather slow-paced record. Still despite those few problems, I really liked the record. It never gets too boring or monotone since it's only 33 minutes long, and The Ocean Floor, Light, Poison Blood & Tether are all solid tunes. 7.5/10

Bleach by Nirvana

This album rocks hard and grungily fairly consistently. The downside is that it has less musical variety than their subsequent albums, instead subsisting on being a heavy album with attitude. The songwriting is thinner and I don't enjoy the vocals as much, but overall it's still pretty good. 3/5.

~~~~~

2. I only know Kirin J Callinan from this legendary song/video:


Link


Try his latest.

3. Time for RoundTheBend's chart:

Big Enough is an awesome song and video!


Ys by Joanna Newsom

I've heard one Joanna Newsom album before, Have One On Me, which although it had it's moments, didn't do a lot for me. This album though is great. Beautiful and fascinating vocals and music. An album I can pay attention to or drift off with, which bodes well for future listens. I'm sure it will grow on me if I listen more but for now after one listen I was impressed enough for it to make my top 50 for the decade. 8.5/10, 4/18 for 2006, and 50/100 for 2000's.

Baystate: You gave a covers album to Zep, and now here's a covers album for you. Johnny Cash.

American IV: The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash

We may no longer have Hope, Jobs, or Cash, but at least we have Johnny's music. American IV is the last album released during the country legend's lifetime. It is a really good listen, but a bit of a confounding one, because there are several incredible songs, but also a large amount of mediocre filler. The first five tracks and Streets Of Laredo are excellent. Definitely better than the first volume in the series, the only other of the six that I've heard so far. 3.5/5.

2. Try this next:


Discovery by Daft Punk

3. Next stop is Mercury's chart:

2. There's No Leaving Now - The Tallest Man On Earth
15. Rum Sodomy & The Lash - The Pogues

24. I See A Darkness - Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
25. Looks Like Rain - Mickey Newbury
28. John - John Phillips (ZA)
33. Rock Salt And Nails - Steve Young
36. Jailbreak - Thin Lizzy
44. Nilsson Sings Newman - Harry Nilsson
49. Vol 4 - Black Sabbath

Return To Center by Kirin J Callinan
This was pretty interesting. Almost a novelty at times, but always manages to be super fun and catchy since his interpretation of those (to me pretty horrible) 80s pop songs is very honest. There's more cheese here than on average quattro formagio, and yet it's enjoyable. The sounds that he incorporates into some of his songs are just amazing too, he hits you with that title ambient track in the middle of classic pop/rock covers. Overall a pretty great album, very unique and difficult to pinpoint. I'm not sure if I'll return to this often, but I know that next time I'm drunk with my gang I'm blasting Life Is Life (maybe back to back with Laibach's version), full volume at 3AM. 7.5/10.

It must be I See A Darkness bay, one of the best and also most devastating singer/songwriter albums imo.

Liquid Swords by GZA

I didn't have this album on my radar until I saw it in this chart and checked into it. It was getting spun one way or another.

And holy ****, is this a near flawless record, or what? I've gone through the whole album three times and the opening track a few more times...GZA's flow is snazzy as hell, and yet esoteric at the same time. Hands down, one of the best raps I've heard. And these beats. RZA says he spent three and a half years sitting in his basement crafting beats in the mid 90's. Raekwon says that the other members rarely fought over them. Why would they? He was churning out insane quality, at an insane rate.

Purple has a lot of albums there that no one else has charted. Check one of them out:

I think that's because some of the genre's I explore (anything psych related, anything punk and it's subgenres, and anything Australian) are under represented on this site....or I just like the shit that no one else likes Wink




Discovery by Daft Punk

This actually followed on really nicely from the psych krautrock shoegaze album I just listened to. The first half was especially strong, and not just the singles. The second half wasn't as interesting but still good. My eldest informs me though that I should now watch the movie and I will appreciate the second half more. (He's also a bit salty it took the online world to get me to listen to an album he has been telling me to listen to for years Laughing ) I think I like Human After All just slightly more. 7.5/10 and 24/41 for 2001.

Jameth listen to The Smile Sessions, both because I think it's an important album to listen to for the background story and musical history aspect, and it's probably the album I liked the most from that list - well that or The National but you weren't too impressed with them...so maybe next time. Smile
