“Let It Be” – Songs Ranked

The final official Beatles album, except “Let It Be” was actually the penultimate album that they recorded. They shelved it after they weren’t satisfied with the final product, and the record label ended up releasing it against their will in 1970 after they had broken up. I’d always thought fondly of this album, but theContinue reading ““Let It Be” – Songs Ranked”

“Magical Mystery Tour” – Songs Ranked

Some Beatles fans are quick to shun “Magical Mystery Tour” – they claim it’s not officially an album, and it doesn’t succeed in its concept quite as much as Sgt Pepper’s did. While I agree with that last sentiment, I think not including it among their albums is a load of rubbish. It’s one ofContinue reading ““Magical Mystery Tour” – Songs Ranked”

“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” – Songs Ranked

While “Sgt. Pepper’s” probably wouldn’t quite crack my top 3 Beatles albums, there’s no denying the sheer impact it had on culture. It’s unequivocally one of the best albums of all time, and it pioneered an obscene amount of musical and production breakthroughs. It’s also one of the band’s most consistent albums ever – howContinue reading ““Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” – Songs Ranked”

“Random Access Memories” – Songs Ranked

“Random Access Memories” is easily my favourite Daft Punk album, and it’s probably up there as one of the best records of the 2010’s for me. I love the way it infuses all sorts of genres, from jazz to big-band to classic electronica, and the experience as a whole is nothing short of a perfectContinue reading ““Random Access Memories” – Songs Ranked”

“Wish You Were Here” – Songs Ranked

I always have a tough time deciding what my second favourite Pink Floyd album is (after “Dark Side of the Moon”, of course) – on the one hand “The Wall” is quite sensational with its grand length and concept, yet “Wish You Were Here” has always stood out to me as a flawless album. EveryContinue reading ““Wish You Were Here” – Songs Ranked”

Beatles “Love” – Songs Ranked

“Love” is a bit of an oddity within the Beatles’ catalogue, as they didn’t really have anything to do with it. The album came around after the Cirque Du Soliel show of the same name needed a soundtrack, so Giles Martin (son of George Martin) came in to remix some of the band’s most recognisableContinue reading “Beatles “Love” – Songs Ranked”

“An Evening With Silk Sonic” – Songs Ranked

When Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak released “Leave The Door Open” as their first single as Silk Sonic, I quite frankly couldn’t care less. I wasn’t a fan of either artist, and I never bothered to give it the time of day. As more singles got released and I gave each track the listen theyContinue reading ““An Evening With Silk Sonic” – Songs Ranked”

“Kid A” – Songs Ranked

Whilst “Kid A” has never been my favourite Radiohead album, it quite comfortably ranks in third. This may sound insulting, but when you realise the sheer awesomeness of Radiohead’s discography then you realise that third ain’t so bad. This is easily one of the best albums I’ve had the pleasure of listening to, and ifContinue reading ““Kid A” – Songs Ranked”

“american dream” (LCD Soundsystem) – Songs Ranked

I get the impression that a few people were underwhelmed by this album, and how LCD Soundsystem dragged themselves out of retirement for it. To that I say – what the hell?!? This album’s fire! The awesome dance beats, a whole range of diverse tracks … why were people so underwhelmed?!? Maaaaaybe it doesn’t quiteContinue reading ““american dream” (LCD Soundsystem) – Songs Ranked”

“In Rainbows” – Songs Ranked

I always have a tough time choosing between “In Rainbows” and “OK Computer” as my favourite Radiohead album – they’re both quite comfortably some of the best albums ever made, and every time I listen to them both they just keep getting better and better. “In Rainbows” will always hold a special place in myContinue reading ““In Rainbows” – Songs Ranked”
