Really good year, I reckon. I liked Beyonce’s album too 🙂Posted 1 year ago
Trentemoller’s was probably biggest disappointment, cos it was just a New Order/Cure covers album.scratchMember
I’ve never really clicked with any records this year, I’m starting to think it’s my streaming habits, I’ll listen to something, love it for a weekend then move on, then about 2 weeks later have forgotten all about it, when you had a CD sitting around you’d at least chuck it back in and let it grow on you.
Just been going through the OP’s list, maybe I’ll leave Cult of Luna for a few days, loving this Ital record though, wasn’t on Spotify when I read the review when it came out, that Mmoths record went the way of the above, I’ll go back in for a listen to that.
Saw Suuns a few times live this year, great band
If i had to pick one I’d go for the last Tribe record, really liking that.Posted 1 year agometalheartSubscriber
I completely forgot about Lisa Hannigan.
Now, her being part of the Damien Rice band (or whatever) had completely passed me by and I heard this track playing in HMV and ‘just had to ask’ who/what it was…
I went home and googled it, saw DR and thought….. shit.
Later on I was back in HMV and looking for something to new to buy, remembered I’d quite liked that track and (forgetting about DR) bought it. Hey, I like it… 😆
I’m also quite liking the Agnes Obel Citizen of Glass cd…Posted 1 year agomr potatoheadMember
I do like the Antonio Sanchez album, as well as the Meridan Suite, also by him and I was surprised to find myself like the Beyoncé album .Some of the stuff coming out by Rag,n bone man , ” human ” and ” wolves ” are both pretty cool , haven’t heard of most of the restPosted 1 year agoslimjim78Member
Moon Shaped Pool
This is your Life (Augustines)
My 3 faves of the year.
MSP is a stunning album, I’m not a particular Radiohead fanboi, but I loved it on first spin and it genuinely gets better every time.
Lazarus and Blackstar are 2 incredible moments on what IMO is standing up as one of Bowies best ever albums. A staggering acheivement for a 68 year old.Posted 1 year ago
