    Well, people laughed at me when i bought Blink 182's self titled album, but if you ignore the first track, which has no place on the album at all, the rest is brilliant.

    Oh and Evanescence - Fallen, is pretty damn good too.

    *waits for the laughing and pointing*

    - Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros - Streetcore
    - The Kills - Keep On Your Mean Side
    - Four Tet - Rounds
    - Trembling Blue Stars - Lights On A Darkening Shore
    - The Hidden Cameras - Smell Of Our Own

  7. Bodhi

    Bodhi FH is my second home

    Yes. Also add

    Outkast - The Love Below/Speakerboxx
    White Stripes - Elephant
    Audioslave - Audioslave
    Thrills - So Much for the City

    But I'd still say Absolution was my highlight of 2003. I still can't stop listening to it.

    Is it me, or is it:

    a) badly produced, and mushy sounding
    b) purposely distorted on the cd

    If b, thats a crime. I love listening to it in my car, but on the hifi, it sounds like shite.
  9. Wij

    Westlife - Turnaround
  10. Anul

    Anul Fledgling Freddie

    I did buy alot of albums this year but not many that were released this year but the new AFI album was great.
  11. Bodhi

    Bodhi FH is my second home

    Dunno, could be something wrong with your Cd mate, sounds absolutely fine on my separates.
  12. Tom

    Tom FH is my second home

    Yeah I know what you mean, but I do have a rather good hifi, and it tends to show these things. If you compare an album like 'Tears for Fears - Sowing the Seeds', which, whatever you may think about it, is absolutely excellently produced, and listen to even the busiest parts of it, it still kicks Absolution into touch.

    Absolution is a great album, it just doesn't seem to 'sound' very good.
  13. BossHogg

    BossHogg Fledgling Freddie

    the strokes - room on fire
    blur - think tank
    radiohead - hail to the theif
    white stripes - elephant
    underworld - anthology 1992 - 2002 (not strictly new)
  14. fatbusinessman

    fatbusinessman Fledgling Freddie

    I'd say it's pretty much a tie between:

    Radiohead - Hail to the Thief
    Muse - Absolution

    I'm going to have to disagree with Bodhi and BossHogg though, and say that I found Elephant to be dismally disappointing. Seven Nation Army is the only track on it that I find remotely appealling.
  15. fatbusinessman

    fatbusinessman Fledgling Freddie

    Oh, but how could I have forgotten this one:

    Rob Dougan - Furious Angels

    It's a tricky decision, but I think Dougan just edges it into the top spot for me.
  16. Lam

    Lam Fledgling Freddie

    White Stripes - Elephant
    Black Eyes Peas - Elephunk

  18. Afx

    Afx Fledgling Freddie

    Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros - Streetcore
    Only heard this the other day and it is indeed ace, Didnt really like much of joe strummers solo stuff before this, but this is as good as anything the clash ever did.

    British sea power - decline of british sea power
    Brilliant album from a band that really deserve to make it big. Even if my favourite song by them isnt on this album: The spirit of st louis.

    Shack - heres tom with the weather
    Hms fable was one of my favourite albums so even though it was a 4 year wait for this one i'd say it was worth it, Especially as miles apart is probably the best song ive heard this year.

    Cant really think of anything else that stands out for me :/

    Seriously, in a whole year if those two albums are the best you've heard it's a pretty poor lookout for where you live.

    Mishy One of Freddy's beloved

    hehe, well most stuff i bought this year is from previous years, not really heard much this year thats of any interest.
  23. mank!

    mank! Part of the furniture

    I forgot about 100th Window and De-Loused... both are pretty good, but I have to say most of the new albums I've bought this year have been fairly disappointing.

    Out of the ones released this year it would have to be 100th Window, although I haven't bought many. Out of the back catalogue stuff it would have to be Peter Gabriel 1, Volare! and Songs From The Big Chair.
