Honestly, when was the last time...

Ok, so I was just looking at Rollingstone's (who cares - I know) Top 50 Albums of 2005 and I got depressed. What a crap list. A few good albums, a few decent albums and a load of crap.

But, it got me to thinking, when was the last time I bought an album that took my breath away. I mean an album that was so incredible that you couldn't believe it.

I realized mine was Kid A. Do you know how LONG ago that was?

So, hopefully I missed something. What was the last album that you bought that took your breath away? It was great when you bought it and it is great now.

For me, it was september 2004 when I got The Arcade Fire. It was reinforced when I saw them live a coupe months later. Their live show really blew me away like no one since U2.

Ryan Adams - Gold
I never get tired of listening to it,an album full of great tunes & beautiful melodies.Pity he lost his way a bit,but his new album 29 is supposed to bring back to form.

Given.I must admit,on first play,the first 6 tunes of How To Dismantle.... did that to me,more than any other first play of previous U2 albums.

Same, I know HTDAAB isn't their greatest album, I remember first listening to it and being like "woah, this is amazing". Now, I've heard some of the songs (ie Vertigo) one too many times, but essentially, the record is pretty damn fantastic.

Believe it or not HTDAAB and ATYCLB blew me away. Thats what they have done to me for the past well years.... When I first listened to HTDAAB it actually made me cry.

Hard to say, what with me downloading things before I buy them.

That said, 'Funeral'. I'd already heard most of the album when I bought it but the first time I put it in and 'Tunnels' came on I was still transfixed.

Then I lent it to someone to tell him how great the Arcade Fire are and he hasn't returned it yet.

The last album that blew me away was Ryan Adam's Cold Roses.

For me it was probably Oasis's Don't Believe the Truth. Every song surprised me... and "Mucky Fingers" blew my head off.

In fact... I think I'll go listen to it now!

actually, wait. I did feel pretty much the same first listening to Devo's "Q. Are We Not Men? A. We Are Devo!" and "Duty Now for the Future" LPs earlier this year

Silent Alarm by Bloc Party did that earlier this year.

Later in the year, it was an album by an independent Adelaide artist called Peter McIver "Before it Ends, Let it Begin".

Mainstream this year did fuck all.
