I only bought a few new releases last year.


Paul Gilbert 'Stone Pushing Uphill Man' 5/5 <  :blink: this album will blow you away, guitar cover bliss!

U2 'Son gs Of Innocence' 4/5

'The Gaurdians Of The Galaxy' soundtrack 5/5

Mastodon 'Once More 'Round the Sun' < I haven't listened to this album all the way through but I love 'The Hunter'.

I'm so embarrassed that I haven't listened to all of it.

I have to say that James "La Petite Mort" just pips SOI to top spot on my favourite albums of the year, not because SOI isn't great but because it is simply flawless.

The other release I bought was "Turn Blue" by the Black Keys, so that would be number 3.

A good thread though, because I can get some recommendations to try out.

I find it harder to get to hear about new music now than when I was younger!

1. SOI by lightyears (and U2 of course)


The rest on no particular order.


2. Do to the Beast by Afghan Whigs

3. Offering by John Coltrane

4. Avonmore by Bryan Ferry

5. dubnobasswithmyheadman (20th anniversary 5CD set) by Underworld

6. Lost in the Dream by The War on Drugs

7. It's All Happening Now (3cd) by Adam Franklin (new Swervedriver to come in March 2015)

8. Syro by Aphex Twin

9. Big Music by Simple Minds

10. Live in Dublin & Popular Problems by Leonard Cohen

11. (this list goes to...) Royal Blood by Royal Blood per Jimmy Page's recommendation.


I suspect based on 2012's Blues Funeral that Mark Lanegan's Phantom Radio should be in that list, but I haven't picked it up yet. May have to edit later as I've about 30 other discs that could be contenders that were never adequately listened to as SOI just wouldn't give up its place in the player.
