The F*cking Monitor

Is one year old today. It has quickly moved into a very comfortable position in my top ten album of all time. It's 10 amazing songs ranked.
10Titus Andronicus
Titus Andronicus Forever

would still be the best song on 99% of albums
9...And Ever

"The enemy is everywhere"
8Richard II

"To whatever extent that you hate yourself, it isn't enough"
7No Future Part Three: Escape From No Future

"you will always be a loser...and that's OK!"
6Theme From "Cheers"

"Gimme a Guinness"
5Four Score And Seven

"It's still us against them!"
4A More Perfect

tramps like us baby we were born to die
3To Old Friends And New

"It's alright the way that you live"
2A Pot In Which To Piss

"I've been called out, cuckolded, castrated, but I survived
I am covered in urine and excrement but I'm alive
And there's a white flag in my pocket never to be unfurled
Though with their hands 'round my ankles, they bring me down for another swirl
And they tell me, "Take it easy buddy - it's not the end of the world""
1The Battle Of Hampton Roads

Really is greater than the sum of its part. The way the ranting angry lyrics
eventually collapse into a simple plea. And then how that plea is uplifted a
marching drum beat and a bagpipe solo...It is everything you ever want music to
