“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”

What I learned from re-listening to David Bowie’s entire discography

I’ve done a more than a few Bowie lists on by blog, so it’s no surprise that I absolutely bloody love the man. He was a beautiful soul, with creativity and flair oozing out of every artistic endeavour, and hardly a day goes by where I feel saddened by his tragic passing a few yearsContinue reading “What I learned from re-listening to David Bowie’s entire discography”

“Inside” (Bo Burnham) – Songs Ranked

I don’t think I was mentally ready for Bo Burnham’s “Inside” Netflix special, but I’m so glad I watched it. This isn’t for the light-hearted, and it’s both hilarious and tragic at times to the point where you question whether those concepts are interchangeable. A big part of why this special was so good isContinue reading ““Inside” (Bo Burnham) – Songs Ranked”

Radiohead – All 9 Studio Albums Ranked

I’ve become quite the Radiohead fan over lockdown, and my love and appreciation of this band’s huge variety of work has grown bit by bit each day. I still have a long way to go with my listening – and there are still a fair number of songs that have yet to grow on meContinue reading “Radiohead – All 9 Studio Albums Ranked”

Top 20 Super Mario Galaxy Songs

After doing an entire list dedicated to Super Mario Galaxy – and even another just for its equally awesome sequel – I found myself more inclined than ever to listen to the soundtracks, and my God are they gorgeous. I’ll give Galaxy 2 its own list at some point, but for now I have toContinue reading “Top 20 Super Mario Galaxy Songs”

“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”

“Blackstar” – Songs Ranked

When “The Next Day” hit the scene in 2013, everyone was glad that Bowie had made his return – but it had hardly made a dent in the pop culture landscape. Bowie needed to go bigger and better for his last album, and against all odds he produced one of the greatest albums of allContinue reading ““Blackstar” – Songs Ranked”

“The Next Day” – Songs Ranked

After a tragic heart-attack on the “Reality” tour, the world wasn’t really sure if Bowie would ever return. There had been no news for a decade, and as far as anyone knew, Bowie’s days of music-making were long gone. Luckily for them, and the world at large, Bowie made a hugely unexpected return in 2013Continue reading ““The Next Day” – Songs Ranked”

“Reality” Songs Ranked

“Reality” is … fine. I’ve never really been a huge fan of this album, and to be honest my opinion barely changed with a couple of re-listens. There are definitely some great ones on here, don’t get me wrong, but there are just too many bland fillers for my liking. How would I rank thisContinue reading ““Reality” Songs Ranked”

“Heathen” Songs Ranked

This album was the start of Bowie’s twilight years – the subject matter had become quite moody and melancholic, and somehow you get the feeling that Bowie knew his time was up on this planet. Does that make this album dreary and boring? Absolutely not. This is a huge breath of fresh air after aContinue reading ““Heathen” Songs Ranked”
