My 5 Favourite Albums

A list of my favourite albums. Each one is a treat to get stuck into rfrom start to finish, the sort rof albums you can unthinkingly recite the rwords, air drum/guitar to every drop and every rbreakdown, mouth revery bizarre lyric. Brilliant.
5Muse
Black Holes And Revelations


In a word, epic. This album shows there isn't really anything Matt Bellamy can't do, from the stomping riff-fest of 'Assassin' to the sweeping latin bounce of 'City of Delusion', this is a band showing off in the best possible way. Summed up by the alternately sweeping and pounding 'Knights of Cydonia', this album just makes you go, "phwoar!"
4Biffy Clyro
Only Revolutions


People will argue it's underpowered, simplified, toothless compared to the calculated roaring of Biffy's previous efforts, but for me this album shows Simon Neil becoming a truly great songwriter. Yes they've eschewed chopped-up time signatures and virtuosic riffing, but the result is an album of such power and scope that it's difficult to blame them. Music with all the sweep of the Scottish highlands, elemental and breathtaking.
3Mumford & Sons
Sigh No More


An album which packs an unrivalled emotional punch. No-one tugs the heartstrings like Marcus and company, and their debut effort is already a big part of my life. Difficult to find a single fault in it.
2System of a Down
Mezmerize


Bizarre, baffling and unequivocally brilliant. Imagine a seething mass of detuned, chugging guitars, battering drums and pounding bass, over which the vocals frolic with supreme confidence and atheticism. Serj and Daron have to be the most distinctive singers in metal, and their understanding of each other's voices is a joy to listen to. Buy it.
1Lostprophets
Start Something


The soundtrack to my youth, a frenzied whoop of teenaged excitement and energy blasting from the rolling hills of Wales. Snarling riffs, enormous choruses and seemingly limitless momentum make this post-Hardcore gem the top of the heap for me.
