Flight of the Conchords Flight of the Conchords
Not bad. Lots of funny moments but I definately prefer them live as opposed to their studio work. Only problem is that for every phenomenally funny and original song there is the occasional one that I just don't get or don't care for that much. Standout favorite track on the album to me would include Robots, Most Beautiful Girl, Hiphop/Rhymenoc, Ladies of the World, Bowie, Leggy Blonde. Check it.
The Ting Tings We Started Nothing
This is not an opinion on the album but instead an opinion on the song "Shut Up and Let Me Go". I heard it and couldn't get enough of it. Screw Katy Perry's hit single, this is eighty times catchir if you ask me. It just grooves.
U2 Achtung Baby
I love it. One of my favorite albums of all time from one of my favorite bands of all time. U2 just feels completely timeless to me and each song is effortless excitement on Achtung Baby. The deep, ambiguous lyrics,electronic backgrounds, synth lines, and compelling guitar work from the Edge coupled with the timeless songs make this album a classic. Hands down.
Nas Illmatic
I don't give 5's written, but in my mind I know whats a classic and whats not, and Illmatic is, in my mind, one of the all-time greatest debut albums by a hip hop performer ever. Nas could tell a story with a stong sense of heart and wit about him and spit lyrics like a madman with such a calm and easy flow that made each track stellar. The few guest spots on the album do their part and do it well, escpecially AZ on the track Life's a Bitch. Each song has a sense of urgency and sensibility to it that make's it a truc rap classic.
The Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
The ultimate 90's double LP, complete with two crappy songs sung by Iha and a bizzare tribute to chromosomes as well as the song that everybody recognizes for it's rats in cages, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness if the Pumpkin's second best album of their career, and as much as I would like to proclaim it as the best, the album gets very slow and boring at times (partly due to its length). The first disc is superior to the second in my opinion, but Corgan manages to make each interesting in their own way. The next couple albums after this were decent enough but this was their peak (although not a perfect one).
Muse Absolution
I sat down and put this album on and my immediate thought was "Radiohead who?". I can see the comparisons in terms of Yhorke and Bellamy's vocal styles, but the bands are radically different. Everytime I listen to songs like Butterflies and Hurricanes or Stockholme Syndrome and Thoughts of a Dying Atheist I find something new and exciting about the tune. A very upbeat album with a space alt-rock vibe and killer classical piano and chord arrangements that dominate the tracks. Muse rule.
The Flaming Lips Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
A playful, eccentric band with a frontman that can write a song. The Flaming Lips don't break the mold with Yoshimi but the album has moments of greatness and beauty. An interesting mix of pop and alternative rock mixed with crazy long song titles. A baby step away from being excellent. Nice listen
