The Tossers - "Communication and Conviction."

I was considering which Tossers album I should recommend, because I listen to all of their albums constantly-they are tied with U2 for my favorite band, and may even win because you can't mosh to U2. At any rate, "Communication and Conviction" has a really wide range of songs-it has rocking punk songs like "Young Ned of the Hill" and "Buckets of Beer" (which they played last night!), "Dancin Shoes," the best song ever to dance to, and gorgeous ballads like "Everything's Bad."

But the take-home message is: check out the Tossers!

Jimmy Chamberlin Complex's "Life Begins Again" album (if you are into jazz rock). Jimmy's drumming is at his best in this album.

Interpol - Antics

Nobody has mentioned either of these two yet, so I don't know whether I should praise Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys or Imperial Bedroom by Elvis Costello & The Attractions.

The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
In 13 songs/35 minutes The Beach Boys make the perfect pop record. Loaded with hooks (Wouldn't It Be Nice), melodies (Let's Go Away For Awhile), introspection (I Just Wasn't Made For These Times) and some of the sweetest (but without getting saccharine) love songs ever made (God Only Knows ). No record collection is complete without it.

Now, can someone else please recommend Imperial Bedroom by Elvis Costello & The Attractions?

One of the best albums of the late 90's Almost every track on the CD is a keeper. It shows great maturity from the Chili Peppers And A. Kedis's vocals are amazing.

The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow

Infectious Beatle-esque type of tunes. Every song is excellent. Their first cd ain't too shappy either.

The Rolling Stones - Exile on Mainstreet

I bought and heard it for the first time last year. This album is rock and roll in a nutshell...

Band -- Art of Fighting

Album -- Second Storey

I absolutely adore Art of Fighting. For me it's actually really hard to turn it off, and I often will listen to the two albums I have of theirs all day. The Amazon customer review (yep there is only one) pretty much summed up what I love about this album, so I'll just let you read that instead of writing the same thing a bit differently.

Like Augie March, Art of Fighting are an Australian band who lack the mainstream attention they deserve. Australia is getting into the habit of producing wistfully beautiful and elegant music, and Art of Fighting is no exception. This is their second major release, and, like its predecessor Wires, it is both lyrical and musical perfection. This music is beautiful and delicate and powerful at the same time. The first track, Along the Run, is a song of unspeakable brilliance and beauty, and sets the tone for what is a consistantly remarkable album. Every song until the closer, Heart Translation, is, again, for lack of a more appropriate word, purely beautiful. I cannot recommend this band highly enough. Deserves 100 stars in comparison to some of the other rubbish out there these days. Buy it, tell your mates about it, just listen to them somehow!

Marvin Gaye - What's Going On

Not only the best R&B album ever made, but one of the best albums of all time, period.

Run right out and buy When I Pretend to Fall by the Long Winters.

TLW offer something for everyone. "Prom Night at Hater High" and "New Girl" will appeal to the Fountains of Wayne or Sunny Day Real Estate fan in everyone with their crunchy, optimistic, alterna-poppy sounds. The Johnny Cash/ aficionados will love "Bride and Bridle," a tale of crime, revenge, and lost love. Meanwhile, the loopy love song "Cinnamon" has a Travis-y/Frames-y feel to it. "Blue Diamonds" and "Shapes" are a bit fringy-er pop songs, kind of like a weird day with Oasis.

But the whole album is melodic and catchy and inventive, with great, memorable lyrics and some nice string sections (if that's your bag).

and you hunger for the time
time to heal, desire, time
