You decided to reply properly since I told you to fuck off via spaghetti hoops?


Interesting...


Yeah, Kid A was fucking atrocious. Thing is with OK Computer, it had songs on it like 'No Surprises' which just made me want to vomit because it was so depressing and self-righteous, whereas The Bends just rocked from start to finish.

Well we have been busy last night haven't we boys?

Me I'm still getting copies of Uncut but that pretty much falls into the trap that all the others do as well, a couple of years ago they were licking Richmond Fontaine's arses all the time.

A fucking great album if you like reggae is Max Romeo's "War In A Babylon", it certainly isn't noughties though.

Also the Freewheeling Bob Dylan & Blood On The Tracks are both imperious as is Astral Weeks by the Irish window cleaner.

Never really got into dope too much, I've always preferred the ale and I'm fortunate in that it's never become a real problem. I have a nephew who fried his brains completely on the overuse of skunk and is now in the land of no return but that doesn't really count as he was a bit of a space cadet when he was about 5 and I think would have gone that way whatever he'd done.

Nickleback are a fine band for a jingle!

Oasis - Heathen Chemistry - Wank!

Still no Editors?

Nice. Bit disappointed in myself that I didn't think of Killers by Iron Maiden for my list. I've listened to that album so much that I no longer need to play it to hear it.

Not nice. Worst Foo Fighters album by a mile and to choose Heathen Chemistry of all the Oasis albums is a bloody scandal, dude!

Then again, each to his own. But I was genuinely shocked by that.

Reidy.

There are some good albums in there but you are missing one. You got Brave New World but Dance of Death was a much better album and should be in that list as well (although A matter a life and death wasnt as good)

You're both wrong. 'Killers' is by far the most superior Maiden album.


Heathen Chemistry was just utter dogger. Every song sounds like it's been spread with 'I Can't Believe It's Not Beatles'. Liam Gallagher needs to get out of John Lennon's arsehole.

Di'Anno probably had the more natural voice for Maiden, but he fucked it all up with his cocaine brain. I like pretty much anything they do, but Killers for me has everything. There's even some nice acoustic stuff on there which you just don't get with metal bands usually.

Killers was released in 1981.. It's just the last decade. Top 50 of all time would probably be far far easier, since the 00's has been pretty shite musically to be honest. More than half the albums on that list would be nowhere near the top 50.

Am I the only person who doesn't like this Album? I think there are 3 decent songs on it and the rest is just bollocks.

Just must not be getting it

I like it, nearly all of it actually but I've listened to a few you've raved about and found them to be nothing special.

Roadsinger - Yusuf (Again)

I'm just saying I don't understand the fuss about it, not saying my opinion on it is the all important.

What albums have I actually raved about? Just looked through my comments and only ones I can found are

Idlewild - 100 Broken windows – "Currently listening to one of my favourite ever albums"

Tokyo Police Club - Elephant shell, "which was one of my favourite albums of last year but not many other peoples"

Passion pit – Manners, "Really can't stop listening to this. Think it gets my album of the summer award"

Cribs – Ignore the ignorant, "Been knocked in the press as The Cribs losing their edge but I still really like it, despite not being quite as good as earlier albums"

Milburn – Well Well Well, "I really like the first album but imagine it will be to no one elses taste on here"

Julian Casablancas- Phrazes for the young, "Very impressed"

Pixies – Doolittle, "One of the best albums ever"

Alec Ounsworth - Mo Beauty, "First Listen of Solo album by lead singer of Clap Your hands Say Yeah, Must say I am very impressed and only on track 5"

Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix – "Brilliant"

Considering the amount of albums I have listened to its only a very small amount that I have actually commented on and even less that I have raved about.

Does that not just sum up the whole pointlessness of producing a list, because it is either based on personal preference or popularity.

Robbie Williams attempted to sing "you can't argue with popularity, you could but you'd be wrong". The charts is a waste of space, the marketing moguls got a hold in the early 90's and it was fucked really. Any poll that sees X Factor winners being Xmas number one three years running is defunct.

On the other hand, personal preference is as subjective as life. I really prefer live music and musicians that make an album feel that it was constructed in their garden shed. Then their can be one bit in a song or an album you relate to and it can change your perception on the whole album. I've banged on about Editors in this thread but on Bricks and Mortar the repetition of "I hope life is good for you..." stuck with me when my mind was in a dark place...

Hang on a minute I didn't mean that comment aggressively although rereading it I can see how you might have interpreted it that way.

Of course all music is subjective and I'm thinking the fact that we're of a different generation will contribute heavily to our tastes too. Looking at your list it's not a few of yours I've listened to it's one, namely the Passion Pit one which didn't really excite me too much. I think I was probably thinking of a conversation I had with Willy about Outkkast and Mos Def a while ago.

I'll give the Passion Pit another go that might be an idea.

Early 90s? A bit earlier than that perhaps?

If you like the garden shed feel try "Kick Out The Jams Motherfuckers" by MC5.

The one bit in a song thing is why Dylan truly is the bard.

Nah, I'd go with early 90's.

The 80's you had mods, rockers, Madonna and the likes of Brother Beyond. However, I feel these were quite reflective of society, Madonna heralding a new sexuality for women and the manufactured band kind of pandering to a new yuppy want it now culture.

The 90's though saw mass manufactured bollocks, style over substance. U2 put money before music and The Spice Girls set about telling people that they should no longer be opressed but develop into a bunch of arrogant overpaid talentless whores, women have followed suit ever since. Even the Indie music that was supposed to be 'on the outsdie' became a battle of Blurasis and Coldplay killed it. The only bright spell was the raves 👽 then the tossers got into them!

@arover

Fair enough, simple internet misinterpretation. Although the generation gap you speak of will probably mean you won't like Passion pit.

@pieeater
Why do you know Robbie Williams lyrics?

I've been thinking all the Editors talk has been about "The Back Room"

1000th post woooooo me!
