The Good Album Thread

Postby TerenureJim » July 6th, 2011, 9:43 am

Inspired by the rant thread and the silly season I thought I'd see what music people are enjoying...

personally I'm currently heavily listening to Kasabian's "West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum" what a cracking album.

for something a little heavier/funnier Steel Panther's "Feel the Steel" is worth a listen but it's not for the faint hearted

An absolute cracker!

Currently listening to plenty of Rammstein and Hayseed Dixie in anticipation of getting tickets for both gigs.

Recently got the new British Sea Power album Valhalla Dancehall. Also the Iron Man 2 soundtrack is pretty cool - mainly cos it's nowt but AC/DC.

If you like the AC/DC Iron Man 2 album I highly recommend looking up the entire tracklisting of songs played in Iron Man 2 on IMDB and throwing them into a playlist. It's all the AC/DC plus added Queen, Clash, Rob Base, Tupac, Daft Punk, Beastie Boys interspersed. Best 10k run playlist EVER!!!

High Violet is great but you need to be in the mood. I will never get enough of Leonard Cohen.

I am obsessed with film scores at the mo..... mainly hans zimmer- Inception most lately, but it's only a matter of time before Black Hawk Down comes back around Whatever your opinion of the film, that is an epic film score!

Currently loving Hot Sauce Committee Part II from the Beastie Boys, they always put out quality music but I'd rate this above To The 5 Boroughs and Intergalactic which is high praise as I love those albums.

Feel the Steel is an awesome album. I brought it down on a mate's stag last year and was well received by all.

Facelift by Alice in Chains, still amazing after so many years.

Currently listening to All That Remains new one "For We Are Many", its great for throwing the weight around to
