Yeah i know it was a miracle how Franz Ferdinand came and liberated me from the prison that these bands had put me in.
But in all seriousness these bands are of course great. What I meant is that i had only been listening to this kind of old/classic guitar rock music for a very long time and was one of those who thought that no new music could ever reach its greatness.
This Franz Ferdinand album changed that perspective and i started to look for new interesting music instead of being just stuck in the past.
Amazing album that sort of changed my life (if i allow myself to be dramatic about it). Like mr. mayonaise said, it took me away from these typical classic rock bands that i was listening to at the time. I felt semi cool listening to this CD in school rather than the typical Metallica/Led Zeppelin/Deep Purple thing most guys were listening to at the time.
Regarding the singles and other album cuts. I would like to point out the song Auf Achse which might not surpass the singles in quality, but definitely is in similar quality.
Here is the same song performed on an Icelandic new year’s eve tv show with Sinéad O’Connor and her daughter on background vocals. No bleeping of the word “motherfucker”.
Sigur Rós should be on the list. Other than that it’s all good and the number 1 album of the year is spot on.
The term “guilty pleasure” gets a whole another meaning if you still like Lostprophets songs after this.
The Smiths should always have an album in the top 100. Not the top album but somewhere in the top 100. The Beatles always dominate these kind of lists. You should maybe just check out other similar lists and you’ll feel better.
“i’m king push, this king push
i rap nigga bout trap niggas
i don’t sing hooks”
We will just have to guess towards which known rapper/singer this is directed at…
Fuck always trying to do something new. Some people just want to hear good music. Some of the best music ever made was not innovative and not particularly new in any aspect. Damn this would be a strange and boring world if everybody were trying to invent the wheel everyday.
I think one of the white guys is from Majid Jordan. At least he was with Drake when he was performing this song on Ellen.
Easy on the The 1975 bashing. Arctic Monkeys is easily the superior band but The 1975 debut is solid and fun. Just what you need as the summer ends and the autumn kicks in. The song “Sex” is an anthem and “Girls” sounds like it belongs in a John Hughes movie.
MJ must have come from heaven to pass the torch to JT before his performance. The medley was nothing less than perfect.
This track is a BEAST! A highly sensitive and vulnerable BEAST!
Yes! I have been listening to Kveikur a lot and in my opinion it is their greatest album since Ágætis Byrjun. Great to know that i’m not the only one who feels that way. The summer of 2013 is packed with good music.
Like it says in “Viðrar vel til loftárasa”: Það besta sem guð hefur skapað er nýr dagur.
I’m one of the many fans that got into them through The OC. Transatlanticism will always be my favorite album. For me that album sounds like a best of album. Every song is memorable and beautiful. A Lack of Color is, come to think of it, probably in my opinion one of the 10 greatest songs of all time.
If anyone is interested the word “Brennisteinn” means sulfur in english.
This shit is awesome! My homies from the land of ice and fire doin’ good work.
I haaaated it then i listened again and again. Now i really love this. I think it grows on you, it’s just so different from the songs we loved back in the day.
This songs comes crashing in your face with synth sounds and a wailing falsetto. But it’s The Strokes and Julian Casablancas so they get away with it. That’s just my 2 ¢ y’all.
I’m the John Stockton of Stereogum.
Chris Brown sucks! He seriously needs to go to jail or retire A$AP
