|Recent Album Listens|
Albums that i've listened to recently in my attempt to listen to all the albums that i've missed out on in the decade. It's mainly so that I can do a best of the decade list at the end of the year, but also because it's fun. Here are the last 5 that i've listened to:
|1||Broken Social Scene|
You Forgot It In People
Hmm... it's just okay. Not spectacular by any means, and while there are a couple really fantastic songs here (Almost Crimes, Looks Just Like The Sun) overall i'm dissapointed. I think the band lets their art-rock influences show through to much; you can tell that they're trying to be pop but it just doesn't work too well. It's too busy, and too long. May grow on me, but for now it's just okay.
Where has this album been all my life? Seriously, what the heck? This is so amazing. Beautifully atmospheric, works fantastically in sequence (especially with the art booklet), and manages to be experimental while still keeping grounded. I like how none of the songs go too long, and even it's more experimental pieces have something of a hook to them. Also, Optimistic and How To Disappear Completely are two of the best songs this decade.
|3|| ||Modest Mouse|
The Moon and Antarctica
Wonderful album. It's fantastic in sequence, and has a lot of variety while still being cohesive. I think that there's some kind of concept going on here, though i'm not sure. Still, great album.
|4||Queens Of The Stone Age|
I don't see why people hate on this album. It's probably the bands most consistent release, and has lots of great tracks (Turnin' On The Screw, Make It Wit Chu, Suture Up Your Future). It's up there with my favourites from the band.
|5||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Too many songs here. Could've been an excellent 10 track album, but as it is it's not great. Not bad, but not great.
|4 is the only one here I've heard. I think it's their worst album.|
|1-3 are pretty solid|
|Nice. 2&3 would definitely make my top 20 of the decade.|
|hmm I was thinking of getting 1 but I'm not so sure.|
I heard KC Accidental and I was like "meh"
|2 and 3 rule. not a fan of BSS. 4 is pretty boring, SFtD is their best album hands down. 5 is annoying|
