Default Albums You're Digging II

I closed the last one because it was essentially a game, this time post the albums and say something on them, right-track gave me this idea. They don't have to be extensive like mine are I'm just wordy and get carried away they can be as simple as one sentence but please make it more than a simple "I like it" comparisons and favorite songs would be cool.


3. Manic Street Preachers "Gold Against the Soul"
This album floats somewhere between Arena Rock, Punk, maybe britpop? I don't know its a combination of a lot of things. This band would go onto release The Holy Bible one of my recent favorite albums of the 90s and the bands masterpiece but they're not quite at that point yet still they manage to create a solid rock album. Richey James and Nickey Wire (mostly Richey) are too great songwriters, though this band writes some odd melodies in order to fit with the lyrics.
Favorite Songs: Roses in the Hospital, La Tristesse Durera (Scream To A Sigh), From Despair To Where, Gold Against The Soul, Life Becoming A Landslide


2. The Smiths "The Smiths"
The Smiths debut is less refined than the albums following it and the production makes it seem even more amateur but Morrissey writes some of the most poetic lyrics of his career here, which isn't shocking seeing as he spent months writing this album in his bedroom before he was even aware of Johnny Marr's existence..
Favorite Songs: The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, Suffer Little Children, Still Ill, This Charming Man, Hand In Glove, Reel Around the Fountain


1. Belle & Sebastian "If You're Feeling Sinister"
This is the First Belle & Sebastian album I've heard yes I've only recently started warming to it as I get more and more into them. I still don't like it as much as Dear Catastrophe Waitress but I think it could be my third favorite album by them. I love Murdoch's lyrics.
Favorite Songs: Get Me Away From Here I'm Dying, Mayfly, If You're Feeling Sinister, Judy and the Dream of Horses, Like Dylan in the Movies

A Silver Mt. Zion - Horses in the Sky
Great, atmospheric, great to have playing in the background.
Fav Songs: Teddy Rosevelt's Guns, Horses in the Sky and Ring them bells

Kings of Leon - Because of the Times
Catchy, fun, love the vibe
Fav Songs: Arizona, Fans, True Love Way, Ragoo, Charmer, Knocked Up

Daisy Chainsaw - Eleventeen
I officially declare this my favourite album EVER. Fronted by KatieJane Garside, this album is: Manic, disturbing, insane, makesyouwannajumparound. It's a pity KatieJane left after this album.
Fav Songs: Love your Money, Lovely Ugly Brutal World, Hope your Dreams Come True, I feel Insane, Waiting for the Wolves.

MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
Synthy-psychedelic-pop-rock. Kind of sounds like of Montreal formed a band with the Flaming Lips and had Jack White sing.
Key Tracks - Time To Pretend, Weekend Wars, Kids

Animal Collective - Feels
One of my all time favs. Strawberry Jam is just as good IMO but I've been listening to this one a lot lately.
Key Tracks - Have You Seen the Words?, Grass, The Purple Bottle, Banshee Beat

Loney, Dear - Loney, Noir
Swedish folk-pop. Not too mind blowing lyrically, but the guy has a nice voice. Catchy.
Key Tracks - Saturday Waits, Carrying a Stone, I am John

My Morning Jacket - Z
Just got into this album. Wish I would've got into it sooner. Just really good top to bottom.
Key Tracks - Wordless Chorus, It Beats 4 U, Off the Record, Knot Comes Loose

Have you heard Hello Saferide? She fits the whole Swedish folk-pop description, I like her alot lately and Feels is a great album but I like Strawberry Jam better.

YouTube - Hello Saferide, My Best Friend
Here's one of her songs.

Oh man, no nod for "Wonderful Man"? A sin sir, but still a damn good choice.

Acoustic Citsuoca? That is damn good, especially Bermuda Highway. Though I think thats just Jim James, but I can't be sure, playing in Braintree, Ma I believe.

Perhaps he/she meant Okonokos?

OT: I've finally caught the Muse bug, I've been binging out on Absolution and Origin of Symmetry. The former seems to be much better, at least up until Hysteria...two standout tracks from OOS; Plug in baby (duh) and Darkshines. Now I'm a little sorry I didn't go to their Croatian gig...
