|15 Albums I Love|
So I'm making a list out of boredom, these are 15 albums I can never
tire of and always come back to for various reasons. What are
everyone's all time faves?
Fear of a Blank Planet
In my eyes easily the best PT release, awesome atmosphere and their best
realisation of prog mixed with the Opeth influence. Nil recurring is also great.
"I'm lying down, blowin' smoke from my cigarette, whisper smoke signs that
you'll never get, You're in your oldsmobile driving by the moon, headlights
burning bright ahead of you, and someone's burning out, out on condor avenue,
trying to make a whisper out of you" I don't think RC needs justifying really.
I love raw power, it's probably the ballsiest and funnest album I own... Can't
split Search and Destroy and Gimme Danger
Welcome To Sky Valley
Sweet, rocking in the desert. This album is awesome to drive to in the late
|5||The Tea Party|
The Edges Of Twilight
Majestic, hard rocking album with really cool world/Eastern influences.
Musicianship is amazing for a three piece.
Sometimes maligned largely because of the meathead contingent of their fan
base, Tool still have a great discography. Lateralus is Tool at their peak.
|7||You Am I|
Hi Fi Way
I'm a self confessed You Am I fanboy, I can't help it. This is probably their best
I love how Nick Cave can have such a decorated, sophisticated discography and
then come up with "No Pussy Blues".
I think plenty has been said on sputnik about Rosetta already, they are a great
|11||Queens of the Stone Age|
Lullabies to Paralyze
Often forgotten, a spooky and atmospheric album that is just as good as Songs
for the Deaf imo.
Twisted, frustrated, beautiful and full of rage are The Drones. Think Minor
Threat having their brutal way with a band like Wilco.
Again, much hyped here on sputnik, but my first taste of post and it still gets
This was huge for a reason.
Probably my favourite SY album, who are one of my favourite bands.
