Recommend an Album

Everyone reply ONCE recommending ONE album and a sentence or two why. ONE album. Cannot stress that enough. Which album is currently "melting your butter" in a way you think EVERY ONE OF US needs to hear it?

Daft Punk - Discovery

It's seriously the best album I've heard in AGES! In the last couple of years I've 'dabbled' in electronics as a result of being pointed in the direction of a small group of electronic acts every now and again to dilute my regular 'rock diet', but this album really takes the cake in my opinion! Home to my favourite song "Digital Love", this album is actually the only 'dance' album I have listened to more than once! Every track is superb and just has this incredibly uplifting feeling to it! Have not heard anything quite like it and suggest everyone give it a listen.

(interesting facts- daft punk released 'discovery' four years ago today. 'Human After All' is released tommorow.)

It is the best songs from the best band in the world.

Queen- A Night At The Opera

Last week I bought 5 Queen albums. I'm loving all of them, but ANATO stands out. Yes, it has Bohemian Rhapsody, probably the greatest rock song ever written and recorded, but it goes in so many different directions. The vaudville of "Seaside Rendezvous" is like watching an old Charlie Chaplin movie in music form. It's a musical. Same with "Lazing On a Sunday Afternoon." This album has the hits as well. "You're My Best Friend", "Bohemian Rhapsody." The mystic metal of "The Prophet's Song", and the harmony bliss of the Brian May sung "39." Queen are the only band who sounded like nobody before them, a complete original, masterful players, songwriters and performers. Has anybody sounded like Queen since? Nope.

Razorlight-Fantastic new band from London. Hard guitars, heavy base, lots of percussion and cutting edge. Great lead singer. Second half of album is just completely engrossing. A real jammer, very uplifting.


Oh I almost forgot... Razorlight's album is called "Up All Night".

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Once you get past Anthony's sometimes questionable lyrics, you'll see BSSM for the fantastic album it is. I don't think I've ever heard a bassist and a drummer so in tune with one another on any album since this one.

Xiu Xiu - Fabulous Muscles

perfect music for this age... sad, depressive, weird, synthetized, machined, exasperating and desperate. I'm going to see him live in April, I'm surprised he's coming to Mexico

Quality album. I bought it at the same time as The Killers who'll I'll be seeing on the 29th June as well. Flippin' awsome!

Try The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill by Lauryn Hill, strangely enough. It's a modern classic; beautiful soul, stunning vocals and melodies that make you want to Personally, I think it gets better on every listen. Give it a go

Roxy Music - Avalon (Remastered)

Avalon is one of my favourite albums from vinyl days but the remastered CD is divine.

The Space Between has become my all time favourite song (for this week). The lush slow funk has me wiggling in my chair.

To Turn You On sounds so different, so many more discrete musical "bits", that even through my computer headphones the song is perfect to just sit and let the music wash over me like a wave washing thingie.

You probably already know about the title track, Avalon, and More Than This.

Avalon is a late night, ambient album that's always been one of my favourites.

Lush ambient funk

The Rolling Stones - Live licks

It's a great live album with awesome live versions of many known and many unknown Rolling Stones songs by the casual fan. The first cd has all the classics, there's a great and beautiful version of Gimme Shelter an amazing rocking version of Street Fighting Man and another great version of Paint It, Black. The second cd has the great songs we don’t usually see on a Rolling Stones live cd and most of them were played again on the Licks tour after many years. I never thought I would listen to live versions of Neighbours and Monkey Man but there they are and they kick ass. That's How Strong My Love Is and Beast Of Burden are also great but the best one is Worried About You. One of the best live versions ever caught on tape by the Stones. It’s perfect, Mick and Charlie are absolutely perfect on this song. One of my all time favorites. Great live cd!

Bruce Springsteen - The Rising.
(Also, his Live in Barcelona DVD.)

My first listen to the Boss. At first, I thought it was alright. Over time, it became a prized item. So many good songs on that CD.

I would recommend Mr Bungle-California.

Because it's unique, it's challenging and because it never got any due respect. Mike Patton is a God. Try it out, either you are going to think it's crap or absolute genius, it might be worth the gamble to some of you.

Mylo - Destroy Rock n'Roll

Uplifting electro, dance and bass. If you're looking for something new. It's a really original album and I think Mylo is going to be really huge this year, he's already getting a lot of airplay these days.
