• My Top 10 albums of the decade

    8 May 2011, 12:38 by peachpunk64

    My top 10 fav albums from the decade 2000 - 2010
    doesn't include greatest hits albums or the majority of 2010 release, at my discreation.

    10. Gob - Foot In Mouth Disease 2003
    This is one of the first 'pop punk' / alternative sort of album I listened to and while i instantly loved the lead single Give Up the Grudge I wasn't as easily taken to the album but I kept it in my collection and as my musical tastes expanded I grew to really love it and it's now one of those albums I go back to again and again. It always kind of reminds me of high school and pretty much just who I was back then.

    9. Lostprophets - The Betrayed 2010
    Released in early 2010 it just makes the cut for the decade. Definetly my favourite album from the lostprophet boys as it is the perfect combination of the 2nd and 3rd albums. It was made that much more amazing when I saw them live. Where We Belong is a f*ckin anthem and I love Dstryr Dstryr my fav line is: 'destroyer destroyer religion needs a new employer we've got the rope to hang your jesus even higher'
  • Record Review: Ben Folds - Way to Normal (Real and Fake)

    6 Oct 2008, 23:22 by catchingsignals

    I got the super duper deluxe vinyl/CD/DVD/bonus CD box set of Ben Folds' new album Way To Normal the other day. The DVD is better than I expected. I'd say at least get the DVD edition if you're a fan. There are a lot of interviews with the whole BF family--both the musical family and parental units. They talk about how he got into music and his bed-wetting days. Ben's dad is great. There's the obligatory tour footage in there too. The veil is uncovered on the recording of the fake songs. They were done during an all-nighter in Dublin. Ben and crew had a hard time keeping a straight face during some of them. There are some studio performances and music videos as well. I'm in the DVD credits!

    The bonus CD is 8 hand-picked versions of Rock This Bitch. In the Breeze has to be my favorite. I remember hearing about the show where he came out for the encore in his boxers and a big white t-shirt, and some folks in the front row saw his nuts when he was conducting the audience on his piano. …
