Some albums I've been currently hooked on more or less...
We sing, we dance, we steal things
A fantastic medley of jazz, R & B, and pop. A perfect album for a sunny (or rainy) day. Instant mood lifter, plus he displays a superb understanding of combining consistent lyrical quality and dense instrumental pieces.
Like most of their sound, this album maintains the trademark ambiance of Animal Collective albums in the past, but builds upon it and adds an extra dose of eccentricity and pastorale. Favorite tracks include Banshee Beat, grass, and the purple bottle.
I initially had negative feelings towards this album, being a faithful fan of "Funeral". Upon further listening however I realized the brilliance of "Neon Bible". I love how it presents these grand, often darker themes while also retaining elements of their sound off of "Funeral". A solid album that deserves as much praise as their first.
An eclectic mix of just about everything, "Gorillaz" manages to take an extremely varied and often quirky and random sound and make it their own. Definitely a solid album, especially if one takes the time to look past hit singles Clint Eastwood and 19-2000. Hats off to Damon Albarn.
This album reminds me a lot of several Queens of the Stone Age albums; it is very much more centered on rhythm in riffs beneath Grohl's lyrics. While I still regard "The Colour and the Shape" as their best, Foo Fighters still pull it off on their first album.
|Jason Mraz bores the craptastics out of me. And I never did become a fan of Neon Bible.|
...I should probably check out Gorillaz at some point though, I love Demon Days.
