MGMT is most definitly one of the most promising bands at the moment. When I first heard their “Time to Pretend” I really found their music quite interesting, I’ve never heard something like that before. Their music is original, full of feeling and above all, incredibly stoned. Oracular Spectacular is their first album, and it really is a great debut.

Weekly Album #4: Gorillaz – Gorillaz

It’s quite some years ago that Gorillaz have released this self-named album, but it is still great, with songs like “Clint Eastwood” and “19-2000” that were great hits and made them the best virtual band there is. Yes, virtual, because the band only exists as the toon-figures Noodle, Russel, 2D and Murdoc who impersonate the whole team of great artists behind them.

Weekly Album #3: System of a Down – Steal this album!

Steal this Album is a name that says everything about the album. It’s an anti-society themed album: asking people to do something illegal, namely stealing this album. It, on the other hand, can also be a message to their fans: don’t download our music, as a lot of tracks on this album were pre-released (not by SOAD) in slightly different versions on the internet as Toxicity 2.

Weekly Album #2: The Hives – The Black and White Album

The Swedish band “The Hives” is one of the leading punk/garage rock bands. This is one of the reasons why I just can’t ignore their newest album, The Black And White Album. It’s their first album in three years since Tyrannosaurus Hives, and the music on this cd surprised me: it’s not the Hives as I know them.

Weekly Album #1: Wolfmother’s Wolfmother

Posted by Flo in Music, Weekly Album on March 1st, 2008.

Youtube is a great way to share music and video media with the world, and luckily people do share this media with each other, so why don’t make use of it? From now on, I will try to discuss an album of a popular artist every week, and add links to the songs (on youtube) and the lyrics to the review. I will also mark the tracks I really like with an “*”, so you’re able to get an impression of what the album offers in a few clicks. The first album I will discuss is the album Wolfmother from the band Wolfmother, as it is an album that let me appreciate metal music.
