What annoys you about it? His earlier stuff is a lot more mellow and frankly I prefer it even if I love the new album.

Annoy isn't the right word, it just doesn't stir much in me, kind of just goes over me. The only real hook i found was in 'Your Arms Around Me' which i still listen to every now and again.

1. Patrick Wolf "The Magic Position (2007)"

Patrick Wolf stated was more about making other people happy than making himself happy. It certainly shows right from the opening track a more upbeat sound. Citing his influences on this album as disco group Boney M and Giorgio Moroder. Patrick Wolf jumped into the world of pop music though he did so much differently then your average artists switching styles. The Magic Position is just as full sounding as his previous release, if not more so. Featuring a wider variety of instruments then before and a wider variety of people. It still holds songs like Augustine, which could’ve fit easily on Wind in the Wires and the violins are still there, but tracks like Accident & Emergency aren’t like anything you would’ve found on early releases.

The Magic Position may sound like a super happy album but it does have its darker moments, the album deals with love. Patrick Wolf was inspired by this, by his relationship with a painter. In the start its a simple accepting yourself to asking do you want me? Hopeful, yet slightly sad and scared. To the joy and infatuation and sex and to the insecurity of wondering whether or not this will last and then finally the album nearly closes with the Stars, a simple reflection. "I lifted my face to the night sky and for the first time in months, I saw the stars. You know when you’ve been so busy, just keeping your eyes fixed on the road in front of you and suddenly it stops?" and then finally it closes with Finale, which is riddled with subliminal messages according to Mr. Wolf. This is such an amazing record and one of my favorites ever because it captures many moods all along one theme and manages to go through them so easily. You don’t really notice how it dips quickly into despair but you feel it when it does. The Magic Position reminds you that love is happy and worth giving, but it still lets you know that romance isn’t all sex and rainbows.
Favorite Song: Augustine

Great album, but my favorite track has to be Overture.

I have "Lust, Lust, Lust" and "In Rainbows". I rarely listen to The Raveonettes and Radiohead though.

10. Guillemots "Through the Windowpane (2006)"

Words like original, creative, diverse, etc all come to mind when I think of this album and while the Guillemots are prone to pretension they still create wonderfully dynamic music. From the gentle coyness of Made Up Love Song #43, to the funness of Trains to Brazil, to the epicness of São Paulo Through the Windowplane is a release that even if you don't like you have to admit is very interesting. But it's so hard not to like anyway.
Favorite Song: Redwings

9. Tilly and the Wall "Bottoms of Barrels (2006)"

This album is such a twee cliche it's amazing how well it works. It's even really fantastic as its slower moments, particularly Lost Girls which is a beautiful song. Man I don't have much to say. click for a good time.

8. Sparrows, Swarm And Sing! "O'Shenandoah, Mighty Death Will Find Me (2006)"

This band has post-rock down, with influences ranging from Explosions in the Sky all the way to A Silver Mt. Zion. This album is a beautiful and extensive trip but there songs being of Godspeed length isn't a bad thing seeing as when you get lost in their waves of sound you can't help but want to stay under water for a long time.
Favorite Song: Across Canyons/Canons
