Listography: Top 5 Albums by a Band


This week KateTakes5 challenges us to come up with our top 5 Albums by a Band…eeek – just 5???

I have decided to link up the pictures of the album covers to a YouTube video of one of my favourite tracks from the album – so you can have a listen if you don’t know the band/just want a nosey.

So, in no particular order:

1.

Poets of the Fall – Signs Of Life

Chosen track: Sleep

I discovered this band through a friend who sent me a couple of tracks from this album and their second album Carnival Of Rust over MSN when we were at Uni (tut tut, illegal music sharing. Naughty students!) I listened to those tracks repeatedly and then went out and found the albums for myself and have bought every album since. It was a tough choice between all their albums so I did eenie-meenie-miny-mo and got this one!

2.

Linkin Park – Hybrid Theory

Chosen track: By Myself

I discovered Linkin Park when I was in college, Hybrid Theory first and then their other albums after – so I was a little late to the party. I listened to it obsessively for quite a while and still like to put it on when I’m chilling out on my own.

I love all their albums aside from their latest one A Thousand Suns which I’m still a bit undecided on. It’s okay…I think.

3.

Avril Lavigne – Let Go

Chosen Track: Things I'll Never Say

Okay, I admit it, I have a major girlcrush on Avril Lavigne. Ever since she burst onto the scene with Sk8r Boi and Complicated I have been in love with her, just a little. Her hair is cool, she’s kind of awesome, she can rock out on the guitar AND play the piano AND sing…I could go on….

I chose her first album just because it’s the one I remember really loving to death first (because it came out before the others, duh) but I admit to listening to all of her albums until I knew them word for word – even the crap tracks. I’m still in the process of learning her latest one though – give me time…

4.

Tina Dico – In The Red

Chosen Track: Head Shop

Tina Dico was a musical discovery early on in my relationship with Sy & I listened to this album a lot when I was away at Uni moping 😛

5.

Passenger – Wicked Man’s Rest

Chosen Track: Things You've Never Done

Sy discovered these guys when watching YouTube videos of old console emulators and one of their tracks was used in the background. They are now one of our all time favourite bands and are also a firm favourite of Liberty & her sisters and cousins – They do a fab cover of one of the best tracks on the album (watch it here but excuse my dodgy video skillz – I’d had wine…) Listen to the lyrics – easily one of the catchiest songs about stalking someone ever!!

  1. Ohh good list, havent actually hurt of some of them so have had a listen, really like your last one Passenger wicked mans rest, and really like the idea of linking them to youtube (not sure I am clever enough for that!).

  2. I would like to pretend that I had heard of them all but I would be lying – good list though!

  3. I’d have struggled with this because my favourites are solo artists. I’d have gone with Because of the times – Kings of Leon somewhere, maybe Bridge over troubled water – Simon and Garfunkel, The White album – The Beatles, Let it Bleed – The Rolling Stones, and oh I dunno. The strokes – Is this it? would be one too.

    I know a few of your selection, though none well enough to have an opinion on them I’m afraid. Music is a very subjective appreciation I think.

    I received the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award yesterday and you are receiving it from me today. To see what you need to do to collect it, stop by wordsinsync.blogspot.com.
    Have a fabulous day – Shah. X
