Favourite Albums 19:55 - Jan 24 with 3230 viewsShun

I thought we could have a little distraction from le foot. What are everyone's favourite albums? Mine, in no particular order:

Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American. My favourite album by my favourite band. The perfect harmony of young adulthood, inspiring teen melancholy and dreams for the future in equal measure.

Blink 182 - Blink 182. Loses points for being a self-titled album, but the replayability still being as strong as ever 20 years post-release is something I don't often find with music. Some real bangers in here.

Paramore - Riot. Pop punk at its finest.

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours. I'm not generally a fan of music before 'my era', but Fleetwood Mac are an exception. This album is simply a masterpiece. (Honourable mentions too for Mirage and their self-titled album)

It’s ridiculous that Elvis Costello gets more mentions on this messageboard than his nephew* Peter.











*possibly. To be confirmed at the next home game over the tannoy*.






*can someone in the Main Stand pop round and inform fans in the Sandy?

Good shout - I was torn between the 2 - Uncertain Smile is an absolute classic - but just felt Infected was more consistent across all 8 tracks.

Uncertain Smile is probably one of my favourite tracks, full stop. The last three minutes are a band at the very top of their game, just having fun.

Definitely a few in there I think you'll enjoy!

Your OP convinced me to listen to Riot for the first time in a long time this evening and that brought back some great memories!

Re Shun's OP I've spent years lurking on here and it's funny how you form little mental impressions of everyone's lives and personalities when not knowing who they are - I've always assumed Shun was a legend based on the old Lauren Mayberry profile pic!

I'm mid 40s and my favourites in my yoof were The Clash, The Specials, Public Enemy - Nation of Millions, De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising, Pixies - Doolittle, Rancid - Out Come the Wolves, Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am.

But this pandemic has really opened my eyes to female fronted pop, I reckon women are writing the best music these days. Chvrches, Self Esteem and new Taylor Swift are my faves the last few years and a nightly dose of Beyonce's 2011 Glastonbury headlining set got me through the first lockdown!
