    gremlin One of Freddy's beloved

    Aye, he was on Later with Jools last night, total bollocks. He can't sing for shit (not that that seems to stop anyone these days).

    Dieselboy's Dungeonmasters Guide is so far my album of the year.
     
  8. shanks

    shanks Fledgling Freddie

    Let's see, a few albums come to mind.

    Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor
    Orphaned Land - Mabool

    There has been loads of other good but nothing unique or new that would make me want to proclaim it album of the year half way thru the year. :m00:
     
  9. Doomy

    Doomy Fledgling Freddie

    Ooooooh. Didnt know that existed, is it is good as the 6xth Session and Project Human?
     
  10. Gurnox

    Gurnox One of Freddy's beloved

    Agreed

    Yep. Depressingly bad.
     
  11. mank!

  12. Wazzerphuk

    Wazzerphuk FH is my second home

    Have you even listened to his latest single?

    I mean, properly.
     
  13. mank!

    mank! Part of the furniture

    No, I just bought the album to admire the artwork.
     
  14. gremlin

    gremlin One of Freddy's beloved

    Haven't got 6ixth session :( but it's easily as good as Proj Human.. i'm sure i remember reading somewhere he said DMG was an evolution of what he started on PH.

    Doh_boy Part of the furniture

    B&S - Dear Catasrophy waitress (was that this year?)

    Either N*E*R*D - Fly or Die or The Streets - A Grand Don't Come for Free
     
  17. mank!

    mank! Part of the furniture

    yes cos I remember listening to it walking home from work on cold evenings and I didn't have a job last year.
     
  18. Mobius

    Mobius Can't get enough of FH

    Diablo - Eternium,
    and the Streets album of course. :D
     
  19. Aada

    Aada Part of the furniture

    i think most of the music has sucked this year..

    I especialy liked when it people thought Franze Ferdinand were gonna be big they were just another rock band with a 1 hit wonder :m00:


    Snow Patrol= really shite album 2 songs worth listening too i bought the album and took it back the next day it was that bad..
     
  20. Wazzerphuk

    Wazzerphuk FH is my second home

    I can't really think of many, but Black Sun Empire - Driving Insane certainly stands out.
     
  21. Sissyfoo

    Sissyfoo Fledgling Freddie

    Just waiting patiently for the new beastie boy's albulm! Heard one of the tracks and it rawks! :D
     
  22. Gurnox

    Gurnox One of Freddy's beloved

    Ch-Ch-Check it Out by any chance? Brilliant isn't it? Always nice to see a new Beasties album, not a bad one yet.

    It's due out on the 14'th according to my friendly local record store.
     
  23. Doomy

    Doomy Fledgling Freddie

    The 'evaluation copy' that i been listening to seems very good. Its very stripped down Beastie Boys to maybe fit in with hip-hop thats going on atm? But the rhymes are great (horowitz's vocals are the best imo). Most of it does seem a lot slower than say the single or Hello Nasty but thumbs up so far :D
     
  24. Sissyfoo

    Sissyfoo Fledgling Freddie

    Yes, the 'evaluation copy' that I also got my hands on (review purposes an' all that) is really goooood. I prefer the tone and style of this album to Hello Nasty! Two thumbs and Three fingers up from me! Rah!
     
  25. Bodhi

    Bodhi Resident Freddy

    I forgot to add Snow Patrol - Final Straw. Excellent Doves/Coldplay-ish type rock, altho thankfully it's closer to the Doves than Boredplay. An excellent chillout album imo.
     
  26. maxi

    maxi Fledgling Freddie

    Mclusky - The Difference between you and me is im not on fire
    Icarus Line - penance soiree
    Madvillain - madvilliany
    The Walkmen - Bows & Arrows
    Magnetic Fields - i
    Xiu Xiu - Fabulous Muscles
    Morrissey - You are The Quarry
     
  27. Ala

    Ala Fledgling Freddie

    Beastie Boys - To The 5 Boroughs

    It is good *understatement* :worthy:

    5 fingers, a thumb and 10 toes up from me :D
     
  28. Derric

    Derric Fledgling Freddie

    "Bolted to the cross" by Ribspreader, and "The eye of every storm" by Neurosis are strong candidates so far.
     
  29. ArrrImmaPir8!

    ArrrImmaPir8! Fledgling Freddie

    :/

    Have you not heard any previous Beastie Boys album? The beats are so weak as to be almost non existant. They are all talented musicians yet have chosen almost inexplicably to rap over Inkredible Skratch Pikles' style battle beats. When using stripped down beats you have to have great flow and clever lyrics, neither of which the Beasties are known for. What works over multi-layed samples and funky loops ala Ill Communication or Sci-Fi beats ala Hello Nasty doesn't work when you've got nothing to distract you from them.

    Try Madvilliany or MF Doom's Mmm Food for great hip hop from this year.
     
  30. maxi

    maxi Fledgling Freddie

    Yep that Madvillain album is fucking awesome.

    SNow Patrol are shit. Who the hell chooses to sound like Coldplay unless they're purely in it for the money? I mean...what the fuck? Why? I don't understand...it's not how music should be...ripping off the bland! Watering down the already pitifully diluted genre that is 'Big Music' .....ramble rant ramble
