  • My Top 10 Albuns - 2008

    11 fév. 2009, 23h01m

    I suddenly felt like i should make a top 10 -.-

    10 - Nine Inch Nails - The Slip
    As my charts can tell, NiN is my favourite band. Yet, this album was kinda disappointing...but it's NiN and it must be in my top 10. "Discipline" and "The Four Of Us Are Dying" are the best songs, in my opinion.

    9 - Ladytron - Velocifero
    I was listening to their old stuff when i heard the single "Ghosts" on TV. I listened to the rest of the album and i think it's their best. Very solid and balanced.

    8 - Primal Scream - Beautiful Future
    The single "Can't go back" is awesome. By far, the best song in the album. I really like "Zombie Man" and "Uptown" as well. The rest is somewhere between average and good.

    7 - Kaiser Chiefs - Off With Their Heads
    I'm a huge fan of the Kaiser Chiefs and i think this might be their best album. Angry Mob was veeery average and between this and Employment, this one wins because it has more diversity. A good mix between their characteristical fast paced songs and now, softer ones, like "Tomato In The Rain" or "Remember You're a girl". Or somewhere in between, like "Half The Truth", my personal favourite.

    6 - M83 - Saturdays = Youth
    Hard to describe. It takes you to another dimension.

    5 - Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
    They surprised everyone, and i'm no exception. They sound like anyone else. Let's see in which direction they'll go with a second album. The same formula might not work so well as it did with the first album...

    4 - Coldplay - Viva La Vida...etc etc
    For some reason i never liked Coldplay. I gave them a try with this new album and i was really surprised.

    3 - The Last Shadow Puppets - The Age Of The Understatement
    At first i couldn't understand what was the fuss around them about. It grew slowly on me but now i'm really addicted. Very fresh and intense songs.

    2 - The Racounters - Consolers Of The Lonely
    I just found out about them recently. Yet, it was instant love. They sound really unique. Better than White Stripes, imo.

    1 - Metallica - Death Magnetic
    It's my number one because it really got me into Metallica. Before, i just knew their most famous singles, but Death Magnetic made me listen to every album they did. And i still love it.

    Honorable Mentions:
    The Ting Tings - We Started Nothing (It was really growing on me. but after a few listenings lost it's heat)
    R.E.M. - Accelerate
    The Presidents Of The United States Of America - These Are Good Times People
    Hot Chip - Made In The Dark
    dEUS - Vantage Point
    Black Kids - Partie Traumatic

    Great albuns that i'm still discovering:
    Blood Red Shoes - Box Of Secrets
    Calexico - Carried To Dust
    Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
    Guns N' Roses - Chinese Democracy (Awesome single btw)
    Kings Of Leon - Only By The Night
    Lykke Li - Youth Novel
    TV On The Radio - Dear Science

    Disappointments:
    Portugal. The Man - Censored Colors
    I Love their previous albuns, but this one...i don't know. It did nothing on me.

    The Killers - Day & Age
    Again, i like their first album as well as the second, but this one is meh...Spaceman is great, Neon Tiger is very good as well but the rest...not so good.

    Bloc Party - Intimacy
    I wasn't a big fan and yet i was disappointed.
