11 Nov 2008, 18:26 de amodelofcontrolI've held this over from last week, which perhaps would have been a better time for it...but never mind. Songs about politics and all relating to it are an age old idea, but still even after all these years one with legs. And after a quick scan of my collection suggested loads and loads for this, I quickly was able to narrow the selection a little, down to songs about politics and America - which still left me with many options!
Any other suggestions (and I have no doubt there will be many, many more) feel free to add them in the comments.
The oldest song I'll be featuring in the list, one of Sabbath's greatest songs that somehow managed to use the analogy of witchcraft to depict the warmongers of the late 1960s - one of a long line of political songs that came about during the Vietnam war (which could have made a list of it's own, frankly).

24 Oct 2008, 16:43 de bumwrapOk so hasn’t compiled this list for themselves? Therefore, I might as well.
This is a very selective list. I have narrowed down an inventory of my favourite albums into this definitive selection. I have chosen these albums as I like almost (if not every) track on them, but they have also caught my imagination in a way that others have not.
This album represents the dance/pop crossover that began to find success in the early 90’s. I particularly like Scarlet Beautiful and “Time After Time”. It’s no surprise that the two most played tracks by listeners on Last.FM are the seminal “The Sun Rising” and the chart hit “Hello”. Takes me back to my youth.
This album grew on me. To begin with I liked it, but repeated plays made me love it. Sure there are a couple of tracks that are unremarkale but the sheer genius of tracks like Hunter and…

3 Ago 2008, 1:19 de BlessedheartThat's right, I'm back with another list of greatness, this time from the year 2007.
Yeah, I know. It's pretty much 2009 now. I don’t always finish jobs in time. Got a problem with that? Fuck you!!!
When Blessedheart sets out to do something, he does it. Eventually.
Last year's (2006) list was tough as I struggled to think of ten albums - live albums, EPs and compilations don't count - worthy of such a lofty accolade as a place in the list. However, this year (2007) was the complete opposite. I have struggled to keep it down to ten because almost every album I have heard from 2007 has been brilliant. I mean, Porcupine Tree's 'Fear of a Blank Planet' didn't even make the final ten. How the hell did that happen? It's an amazing album! Seriously, go and buy it, even if you already have a copy.
Yes, that does say ‘buy’.
By the way, if anything I state in any of the tedious reviews below offends you, that's your problem, not mine.

21 Ene 2008, 7:07 de scottwallace01I'm bored, so I stole this from Gibson1976's journal. Hope he's not with the RIAA!
1. How did you get into 29? (Social Distortion)
I heard the diatribe on Live at the Roxy about how back in the day you couldn't just walk into the mall and "get your pussy pierced," and I pretty much knew I needed to listen further.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (Opeth)
Windowpane, off of Damnation. I wasn't yet into death metal, and was stunned by the distinction between this song and the material off of their other albums.
3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33? (Faith No More)
"I started this
It's all for me
What's yours is mine and mine is mine
That's plain to see"
from Be Aggressive off of Angel Dust
4. What is your favorite album by 49? (Insomnium)
Still fairly new to them, to the point that I'm surprised they're in my top 50, so I'm not certain. Probably (at this point) Since the Day It All Came Down.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own? (Izzy Stradlin)
