As you know I love music and am constantly listening to one album or another. So I thought I’d put together a list of my favourites from last year with a recommendation that if you don’t own them already to go out and buy them! Click on the pictures to go to their pages on Amazon.
I’ll add some more if I think of any but these are the ones I’ve been playing the most.
What no Kaiser Chiefs?! The second Franz Ferdinand album is good too IMHO, but not as immediate as their debut.
I never really got into the Kaiser Chiefs – I think I got sick of hearing them on MTV constantly, and while I also like the new Franz album I’ve just not played it that much – certainly not as much as their debut. I’m a picky guy!
You’ll kick yourself, but you’ve forgotten to mention the third Sugababes album that was released in 2005! Doh!
Oh, and if I had my pedantic hat on I would point out that Funeral was released in 2004. Instead I shall concur that it’s great. Ah, the joys of listening to “Power Out” whilst walking through a crowded city – it’s what your iPod was made for…
Where was Sigur Ros?!
Ian, I’ve just checked and you’re right, I must just be slow on the uptake. And yeah, I forgot about Sigur Ros, but then I don’t have an official copy yet. 😉
Arcade Fire! What is wrong with you? First it was the bad hair, then the obsession with Joe Cole, and know it’s Arcade Fire.
There are only six alblums of last year, the year before and this year:
Hail to the Thief
Come on, Joe Cole is Chelsea’s best player! And how did I guess you’d vote for Radiohead? Having said that, if I do a ‘best albums of all time’ list a couple of them would be on it for sure…
