• The 100 Best Fucking Albums Ever

    20 May 2008, 16:19 by 6:00

    Simply my favourite albums of all time, regardless of genre. If I were on a sinking ship with these records, I’d likely drown trying to save them all. Comments are, of course, welcome.

    100. King CrimsonThrak – 1995

    Artful, playful, dark and angular modern music from the kingpins of classic prog.

    99. FugaziThe Argument – 2001

    The controlled fury of Fugazi’s classic hardcore attack meets the washed-out moody ambience of post-punk, with awesome results.


    98. The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely – 2008

    An instant, eclectic classic from can-do-no-wrong composer Jack White and Co.

    97. Judas PriestUnleashed In The East – 1979

    The best live record of the 70’s, from one of metal’s all-time greatest innovators.

    96. Neil Young & Crazy HorseEverybody Knows This Is Nowhere – 1969

    Young’s finest hour, this album is a repository for both his wildest studio jamming and some of his best songwriting ever.

    95. Bruce CockburnLife Short Call Now – 2006
  • My Top Ten Albums of 2007

    9 Jan 2008, 03:56 by 6:00

    Well, we're into 2008 and I'm looking back at 2007 with a bit of a sigh in my heart. So many of my favourite artists delivered awesome releases last year (The Decemberists, Bruce Cockburn, Amorphis, OSI, Mos Def etc.) that 2007 was bound to be a less action-packed year. Even so, there was plenty of stuff to get excited about and this year's top ten record list was as difficult to choose as ever. While I can see me kicking myself in a few weeks when I finally get around to listening to Ted Leo & the Pharmacists' latest or any of the other promising albums from last year I failed to get to, I'm pretty happy with this list as it is now. Not even the croaking back to hideous motion of my life's bane, Led Zeppelin, the sad self-parody that is Ozzy's latest, or the omnipresence of that damn Finger 11 song could rain out the party completely. So read up, obtain the ones that sound interesting and enjoy.

    10. Polyrhythm Addicts - Break Glass
