may as well, every indie kid loves a list, as every knows. this one will take a bit more thinking about though. It wasn't such a great year for albums I don;t think, plenty of overall pretty average albums, with some killer tracks and then some not great filler. The only one that really took me on a unique and consitantly themed journey from start to finish as a good lp should was Pier Bucci's 'Familia'. Can't really complain though I suppose, as I said in the other said, it's been a really special year for music, maybe just the album format is becoming a bit of a forgotten art.

1. Pier Bucci - Familia
2 Booka Shade - Memento
3. Burial - s/t
4. Jeff samuel - Steps
5. Louderbach - Enemy Love
6. various - Superlongeivity 4
7. Skream - Skream!
8. Nathan Fake - Drowning in a Sea of Love
9. Ellen Allien & Apparat - Orchestra of Bubbles
10. Trentemoller - The Last Resort

i'm sure this could change as i've probably forgotten stuff. and i can't do a top 10 as so much good stuff has come out this year....

1. albert hammond jr - yours to keep
2. hot chip - the warning
3. peter, bjorn & john - writer's block
4. the beatles - love
5. the spinto band - nice & nicely done
6. the rapture - pieces of the people we love
7. beirut - gulag orkestar
8. ben kweller - s/t
9. muse - black holes & revelations
10. midlake - the trials of van occupanther
11. tv on the radio - return to cookie mountain

17. jarvis - jarvis
18. long blondes - someone to drive you home

joanna newsom almost made my list which says a lot about how stunning the music on that album is. if only i didn't dislike her voice...

I'm struggling to think of ten really good albums from this year. A lot of the things people have picked I found disappointing - The Avalanche was alright but not a patch on Illinois, Return To Cookie Mountain wasn't as good as the album before either, Thom Yorke and Jarvis both could have done a lot better. It's not like I've hated all the music that's come out this year or anything, but maybe I've just been listening to bits and pieces more than albums. The two best albums of the year were Ben Kweller and M Ward though.





I would like to see the skyline and city lights of New York or Tokyo and then come back to the green fields we know and do nothing, and sleep, and do that again and again...

Al would like Placebo if they added hip hop beats to their songs.





I often go to sleep with pyjama bottoms, socks and a t-shirt on. When I awake I am naked. This is a popular phenomenon, known in scientific circles as theft. My family members steal my clothes in the night and sell them down the market. I often walk to work and see kids wearing the clothes that only the night before I was sleeping in. It is a disturbing development.

Where the hell did that come from? 'Pure Morning' has a beat, yet it's still the worst song ever written.

As usual, the best albums of the year were by Primal Scream, The Flaming Lips and The Womb.

Primal Scream's latest effort is akin to necrophila.
