07.20.11 My 5 Favourite Albums

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.
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

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.
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.
