A Day In The Life Of...

...Me. I don't really do playlists, so here's the albums i was listening to at work yesterday. First List! Enjoy!
1The Answer

I have about a 40 minute walk to work in the morning and always like something rocky and upbeat. These Irish rockers are the dogs bollocks and have big things ahead of them hopefully!
2Joe Bonamassa
A New Day Yesterday

Possibly the most exciting young Bluesman around. Great album that really helped to kick off a great career.
3Tommy Emmanuel
Endless Road

If you were to ask me for the greatest guitarest in the world i suspect it would probably be this guy. His abililty to play what would normally be several guitar parts at once always amazes me. Great album aswell, i need far more of his stuff though!
4Bruce Springsteen
Darkness on The Edge of Town

Can't beat a bit of Brucie! Nobody tells a story as well as Springsteen in my opinion. Great Album conbining the bombastic aspect of albums like "Born to Run" with the intropective moments of genius that are another hallmark of his work.
5 Gov't Mule

My favourite band by far. Have to listen to something of theirs regularly to get my fix. Check out "John the Revelator" and "She Said, She Said".
6Band of Horses
Cease to Begin

I love this album, although i have to resist the urge to put "ghost in my room" on repeat for an hour!
7 North Mississippi Allstars

Great band with a modern take on the blues. Their new album matches any of there previous releases.
The Red Album

A nice return to form for these guys. Trademark pop-culture references and the usual smattering of ironic self-ridicule put this up alongside their debut for me.
9 Frank Black
Fast Man, Raider Man

Love his solo work just as much as all the better known stuff. Really nice album. Doesn't really break any boundaries, it's just realy good.
10The Fratellis
Here We Stand

We're getting near the end of the working day now, so something more upbeat. Just fun Glaswegian Indie Pop. Love it, although i suspect it may not be too long before i grow tired of it.

Walking home now. I must confess i've always had a bit of a soft spot for these nu-metallers. no idea why, although I really enjoyed their set and this years download festival. So there you go, a glimpse into my working day. Hope you've enjoyed the read.
