2013 – The Year in Lists – 5 Worst Album Covers

17 Dec

Hey, not bad, I only left the blog to shrivel up and die for four months this time!  I’m proud.

Well, of course, it’s that time of year again.  Time for me to share my thoughts to the world on what music was like this year.

I had thought that this was going to be another slack-off year for me, as far as number of albums I heard was concerned, but when I look back, it was actually a great year.  I fell in love with a new kind of music, my friends and I have so-dubbed it “TumblrCore” after some horrible reviews written by Pitchfork, saw more concerts than I ever have in a single year before and, most importantly, was reunited with some of our favorite acts who decided that 2013 was just too good a year not to come out of the woodwork’s once more.

The Top Ten Songs of 2009

7 Jan

So I still haven’t managed to get myself a final list of albums for the year but seeing as time is moving on I guess I better at least give you my songs of the year so here they are.

10. Franz Ferdinand – Ulysses
Let’s kick this list off with a band who really disappointed me this year and that band are Franz Ferdinand who took years to release an album that sounded like they came up with everything over the course of one weekend. While the majority of the album sees Franz sounding like watered down and boring versions of themselves, Ulysses sees them at their best. As a first single it’s perfect, it has a great hook and you know what it made me want to hear the album, curse you Ulysses

Here we go people.  We have arrived.  It’s the *DUN DUN DUN DUUUUUH* top 5 of 2009 according to A$l3^, as I’ve changed my name to.  Continuing as I did yesterday, the embedded videos aren’t my favorite tracks from each album, but, they’re incredibly good in their own right. So, let’s get on with the show, I’ve padded this out long enough.  !SDRAWNO
