My Year In Music 2010 - Albums 20 - 11

My Year In Music 2010 - Albums 20 - 11

* Each fave track has a link so you can listen to them*  My Year In Music 2010 - Albums 40 - 31 My Year In Music 2010 - Albums 30 - 21 20. Mavis Staples - You Are Not Alone Another now-tro album that was produced by Jeff Tweedy and you can definitely smell his cooking on this album, a couple of songs could have fit on Sky Blue Sky quite nicely like title track You Are Not Alone but benefit more from someone older and with a bigger voice singing them. Fave Track - I Belong To The Band 19. LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening An album that could have been crushed by the hype surrounding it when it was released managed to do that rare trick and be better than you hoped it could be. Having been a very late-comer to James Murphy's music (in doing this list I realise I ignore a load of bands because of hype!) I can't really compare it to his other releases but all I know is this is an album that you can constantly have on repeat and not get tired of it too quick Fave Tra

My Year In Music 2010 - Albums 30 - 21

So part two of four of my favourite 40 albums of the year. You may wish to read  My Year In Music 2010 - Albums 40 - 31 first. * Each Fave Track has a link so you can listen to it*   30. John Grant - Queen of Denmark Got to admit I knew nothing of the man before listening to this, I had heard of the Czars but never listened, and was also intruiged to hear a Midlake album I might enjoy after not really liking The Courage of Others. This album marries classic 70s singer songwriting but with nicely sharp and incisive lyrics and an amazing voice. Fave Track - Sigourney Weaver 29. John Legend & The Roots - Wake Up! A covers album (well one original) of socially conscious soul songs from the 60's and 70's might not seem that great an idea on paper but it really works. Inspired by Barack Obama's 2008 election and the mood of the USA at the time, John Legend, The Roots and others set out to cover lesser known soul songs. While there is a Marvin Gaye cover, I was most

My Year In Music 2010 - Albums 40 - 31

This year I'm going to do a top forty list and then split it into four posts to get my blog entries up a bit. So here's 40-31 then. * Each fave track has a link so you can listen to them*  40 . Josh Rouse - El Turista In fairness this album could have been called "Let's Get Ready to Rumba" if Josh was from Newcastle, beacuse on this album he takes his inspiration from Spain rather than classic Americana or American pop. He covers Cotton Eyed Joe and on I Will Live On Islands evokes Paul Simon's Graceland, no bad thing you'd agree. Fave Track - I Will Live On Islands 39. Belle & Sebastian - Write About Love I still can't get over that I don't really like this album too much, because it's probably their most confident album, so perhaps that's maybe why. As much as I enjoyed the God Helps The Girl album, I did tire of it pretty quickly and a lot of this album sounds too much like it or at least in the same vein. I really need t
