So the year is half over and I seem to be missing all of the albums that are supposed to blow me away. I will admit there are certain albums by bands I love that I should listen to but haven’t yet i.e. The Flaming Lips, TV on the Radio, Futureheads.
For me, it’s been the year of disappointments. Tool, The Streets, Pearl Jam, The Stills, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes all came in well below my expectations.
There’s only been three albums I’ve enjoyed all the way through.
Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood
The Walkman - A Hundred Miles Off
Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere
Even Thom Yorke’s solo record I haven’t liked so far. Though I feel with more listens, I’ll begin to get it a bit more.
So where’s all the music?
