Favorite Albums, Favorite Artists #2 (Tegan & Sara, Amy Winehouse, M.I.A.)

Three more of my favorite artists, and what I consider to be their best work. 

The Con - Tegan and Sara

Difficulty of choice: [2/5]

Tegan and Sara have some kind of a secret formula for making songs that I like, because it's a virtual guarantee that I'm going to enjoy at least 90% of the material on any album they release. But, The Con stands above the others. It's catchy, dark, slightly weird, and has two or three of my favorite songs, ever. 

Favorite Songs
"Like O, Like H"
"Knife Going In"
"Back in Your Head"
"Call it Off"

Frank - Amy Winehouse

Difficulty of choice: [4/5]

Back to Black is nearly as good and has just as many amazing songs as Frank, but I find myself using the skip button a little more often with the former than the latter, which gives the jazzier Frank the edge. 

Favorite Songs
"You Sent Me Flying"
"F*ck Me Pumps"
"Take the Box"
"Love Is Blind"
"What Is It About Men?"


Difficulty of choice: [4/5]

MAYA took longer to grow on me than M.I.A.'s other two albums, but once it hooks you, it hooks you hard. Her sound bounces all over the place, and that's an absolute compliment. Choosing between this and Kala is tough, but gun to my head, I'm going with MAYA.

Favorite Songs
"Tell Me Why"
"It Iz What It Iz"
"Born Free"

    Deciding on my favorite T&S album is harder for me! The Con is such a consistent albums, but so is the highly underrated Sainthood, and that has some really catchy songs. then there are If It Was You and So Jealous, which have great representations of their sound... UGH this is impossible .
